03:52<RuFI0>i was wondering if some one can tell me where mythbrowser reads it configs from
03:52<RuFI0>like how konqueror reads it's config
03:52<RuFI0>where the font settings are
03:52<RuFI0>i can't seem to find it

07:27<anykey_>Can someone confirm #4820?
07:29-!-loops [] has quit ["Leaving"]
07:46<gbee>lots of people, it's a known bug with a known cause and will be fixed soon
07:47-!-loops [] has joined #mythtv
07:47-!-joobie [] has quit ["This computer has gone to sleep"]
07:47<laga>we've been getting some segfaults lately, i'll make sure we forward them to trac ASAP
07:47<gbee>laga: which version? chances are that if they were with trunk/0.21-fixes from the last week then we already know about them
07:48<anykey_>gbee: ok, i'll watch trac for a fix ;)
07:48<laga>gbee: trunk/21-fixes
07:48<laga>i'll probably look at trac then before posting them
07:49<gbee>laga: any chance you can narrow down the revision which causes that segfault in #4816? It's pretty new
07:49<gbee>laga: anything involving memory corruption or mythevents is related to the changes Daniel made which he now plans to revert
07:49<laga>gbee: ok, i'll go back 100 revisions or so (?)
07:50<laga>gbee: should i wait for him to revert?
07:51<gbee>laga: your segfault is unrelated to the mythevent changes, I've reverted them locally and can still reproduce the crash
07:51<gbee>100 revisions would be a good start, then do a binary search
07:52<laga>that can take a while. i wish there was svn-bisect
07:53<gbee>laga: you could look at the commits and see if anything stands out, but I couldn't see anything when I looked just now
07:53<gbee>I'd do a binary search if I had the time and I still might if I have to
07:54<laga>no worries, i'll do it

11:18<gbee>Chutt: what was it about #4756 that looked iffy? I've noticed that the compat code in mythmainwindow::ExitToMainMenu() sends an escape key event under certain circumstances, it looks like popscreen sends a ExitToMainMenuEvent() event which sends the escape key event triggering a second popscreen after top has been deleted
11:19<stuarta>btw. #4606 seems to be fixed AFAICS
11:20<gbee>stuarta: with the patch Paul attached?
11:20<stuarta>i just tested with latest 0.21-fixes
11:20<stuarta>no special patches
11:21<gbee>Chutt: err, ignore the 'compat' in what I said above, both the old and new code sends an escape event
11:21<stuarta>however uk dvb radio stations aren't truly audio only
11:22<gbee>I'm puzzled why popscreen would send the exittomainmenu event, there is a circular logic and race condition
11:22<gbee>stuarta: do you have ITV disabled?
11:24<stuarta>hmm, he attached the patch after i tested it :-/
11:24<gbee>yeah, progress bar issue seems to be fixed, the patch attempts to solve the stuttering from the description but I could never reproduce that anyway
11:38-!-mykeul [n=mykeul@] has left #mythtv []
11:39<GreyFoxx>odd, . The sample the guy put up plays perfectly fine for me
11:40-!-onixian [n=xian@] has quit [Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)]
11:41<gbee>GreyFoxx: thanks for the reminder, I left that downloading in the background but then forgot about it
11:43<gbee>it's not exactly smooth, but it plays here
11:44<gbee>lots of "NVP: Video is 3.25139 frames behind audio (too slow), dropping frame to catch up."
11:44<GreyFoxx>I didn't have any of that (desktop at work is kinda beefy), and so far it plays just fine.
11:44<gbee>to be fair though, this isn't the fastest machine
11:45<gbee>I can get away with 1080i mpeg2 on this machine, but I've probably altered the playback settings since I last tried it
11:46<GreyFoxx>only HD content which makes mine get upset at home so far is the bbc.hd.ts test file :)
11:47<gbee>oh and for some reason deint was enabled on HD content which is almost certain to overstretch this CPU
11:48<gbee>GreyFoxx: I can play that ............ after transcoding it from h.264 to mp4 part 10 (or whatever that damn codec is, can never remember which is which)

12:03<sphery>GreyFoxx / gbee : re: #4859 , it's probably;#318588 . A sufficiently powerful processor can adjust for the issue. Mark posted a patch (and I've been soliciting testers on -users) at .
12:04<sphery>See, also, (#4859 may be a dup)
12:05<Deek>btw, why #mythtv and -users, instead of #mythtv and -dev?
12:06<stuarta>don't ask
12:06<Deek>sounds like a long story
12:06<stuarta>the bitbucket containing the answer has rotted through due to overuse
12:08-!-dekarl [] has joined #mythtv
12:10<gbee>Deek: devs were here first (well duh) :)
12:12<gbee>everyone else has it the wrong way around
12:13<Deek>Same with #quakeforge, but when it got too crowded we moved the dev channel. :)
12:15<gbee>I think it helps users from developing an overblown sense of self importance if they are consigned to the sub channel :p
12:16<Deek>(and we didn't tell anyone the new channel name :) )

12:33-!-onixian [n=xian@] has quit [Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)]
12:36<gbee>little baffled by the compile errors that this patch is giving:
12:43<sphery>What's on 4416/4421? They're about 200 lines above your patch lines, it seems...
12:43<sphery>(i.e. no other changes?)
12:54<danielk22>Chutt, you here? I can't reproduce #4567 ...
12:54<gbee>no other changes, including the util-x11 header seems to trigger the problem, the lines in question are both "event = new QKeyEvent(QEvent::KeyPress, Qt::Key_LaunchMedia,"
12:54<GreyFoxx>danielk22: really? I can see it with two videos I've got here
12:55<danielk22>what video output method are you using?
12:55<GreyFoxx>haven't tried them with opengl
12:55<danielk22>don't see it here with the sample... what are the display pixel dimensions?
12:58<GreyFoxx>I've seen it at 720x480 and 1368x768
12:58<GreyFoxx>and 848x480
12:58<danielk22>hmm, maybe it's driver related? What driver are you using?
12:59<danielk22>nvidia? version?
12:59<GreyFoxx>All of them are using the latest NVidia driver, 2 are fx5200's and 1 is a gt6600 or some such. I've seen it previously with a gf4mx440 and the latest legacy version of that
13:00-!-gnome42 [] has joined #mythtv
13:00<GreyFoxx>latest as of 2 weeks ago at least
13:02<danielk22>k, I'll try upgrading my nvidia driver...
13:02-!-HEP85 [] has joined #mythtv
13:02<GreyFoxx>I'm downloading the test.avi now to try it here at the office
13:03<GreyFoxx>I see it here as well
13:04<GreyFoxx>dual monitors, 1 nvidia (latest driver) the other is an ati card of some sort using the X provided driver
13:05<danielk22>I'm not seeing it, I'm using 96.43.01
13:05<danielk22>w/GeForce 6200
13:06<sphery>gbee: Sorry. Can't help. I think you'll need a namespace expert (like Anduin) for this one... :) Good luck.
13:09-!-JoeyBorn [] has joined #mythtv
13:09<GreyFoxx>moo2.jpg and moo3.jpg as well
13:10<GreyFoxx>that's how it appears on all the machines, drivers and resolutions I've tried so far
13:10<GreyFoxx>those there are using opengl for rendering
13:11<Chutt>danielk22, that one's because the video res is 360, but it's trying to display the 368
13:11<Chutt>so the other 8 lines are garbage
13:16<danielk22>yeah, I just wish I could reproduce it...
13:16<danielk22>so I'll know when it is fixed..
13:16<sphery>danielk22: I'm doing up a patch for the preview permissions thing to make a makeFileAccessible() function in libs/libmyth/util.{h,cpp} (that currently just has a chmod call in it).
13:16<sphery>While cleaning up includes, I noticed a double include of <sys/types.h> and <sys/stat.h> and <unistd.h> in libs/libmythtv/previewgenerator.cpp . However, they say "for stat", but I don't see any use of *stat, and--without chmod--appear unnecessary.
13:16<sphery>Should I remove both of them or leave one set in (i.e. is a compile test a valid test for no longer needing includes)?
13:16<Chutt>danielk22, no overscan stuff?
13:17<danielk22>don't think so, checking...
13:18<danielk22>heh, my bad, 5% overscan...
13:18<danielk22>I see it now.
13:19<GreyFoxx>One thing I notice with that is that if you let it play 2 seconds and jump back to the start the aspect changes
13:20<GreyFoxx>Or if you let it play it gets to aspot where it pauses for a set while we recall SetvideoParams
13:20<danielk22>gf: yeah, noticed that too, different problem...
13:20<danielk22>it looks like the aspect ratio isn't set correctly initially, but gets fixed after a seek
13:21<GreyFoxx>we originally calculat 2.0 (720/360) but later after a seek, or by h264preprocesspkt itself determins 2.3
13:24<danielk22>so why doesn't this get pushed up to videoout as soon as h264preprocesspkt first determines the aspect ratio?
13:26-!-JoeBorn [] has quit [Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)]
13:27-!-JoeyBorn [] has quit [Connection timed out]
13:32<GreyFoxx>seems to me where I first looked at it context->sample_aspect_ratio wasn't being set at the start of the file
13:33<GreyFoxx>but later it is
13:33-!-HEP85 [] has quit ["ChatZilla [Firefox]"]
13:34<GreyFoxx>so so when InitVideoCodec checks it's not set and uses the base width/height
13:37<danielk22>GreyFoxx: Can you create a 0.22 ticket for this explaining all you've discovered so far?
13:50<Anduin>gbee: util-x11.h brings in Xlib.h which brings in X.h which defines KeyPress as 2 making the code after the pre-processor read QEvent::2, ick.
13:51<gbee>well thanks for tracking that down :)
13:51<Anduin>You can #undef it
13:51-!-loops [] has quit [Remote closed the connection]
13:52<Anduin>gbee: I just modified the Makefile, made the .cpp.o rule -E
13:52-!-xris [] has joined #mythtv
13:53-!-onixian [n=xian@] has joined #mythtv
13:53<gbee>Anduin: heh, didn't think of that
13:54<Anduin>(same with KeyRelease)
13:54<stuarta>perhaps we should change our define
13:55<Anduin>It is a Qt one
13:56<laga>i got similar errors when i tried to add the Xtest extension to mythbrowser (for proper clickiness for the flash plugin)
13:58-!-tlhiv_laptop [] has joined #mythtv
13:59<Anduin>danielk22: You still see usr in the python bindings dir? (That should have been fixed with the separate build/install fix)
13:59-!-tlhiv_laptop [] has left #mythtv [":q!"]
13:59<janneg>danielk22: the bindings/python/usr is an artefact from an error install rule. removing it from the ignore property isn't worth the commit though
14:00<sphery>Anduin: BTW, I wasn't volunteering you to figure it out--just saying that you seem to be the one who always figures out these obscure things. Hope that was as easy for you to figure out as you made it seem.
14:00<gbee>I've undef(ined) it for now, considering that we don't use the non-video parts of X directly I'll probably stick the undefines in util-x11.h unless there are any objections?
14:02<Anduin>sphery: It was, no worries.
14:04<danielk22>janne,anduin: it was probably a leftover, but not worth the commit to revert..
14:06<Anduin>Yeah, I just wanted to make sure it wasn't still broken somehow.

14:10-!-_gunni_ [] has joined #mythtv
14:11<gbee>looks like I was wrong in lumping #4820 in together with the mythevent related segfaults
14:13<gbee>though re-reading the comments it certainly looks like the same issue
14:14-!-mattwire [] has joined #mythtv
14:15<sphery>I've got to learn how to write a shorter ticket summary...
14:16-!-ahbritto [] has joined #mythtv
14:31-!-Gammelmark [n=geemark@] has joined #mythtv
14:33<Gammelmark>hello. Sorry if this is is stupid question but I am a beginner to this. What is the easiest way to load a jpg/png from file and into an "image" element? I can of course use the "filename" properly in the UI XML, but I need dynamic loading
14:34<MrGandalf>please read the topic
14:35<MrGandalf>well, that may be considered a dev question..
14:35<stuarta>dev of what is a completely different question
14:36<Gammelmark>a mythtv plugin
14:36<MrGandalf>I would have guessed theme.
14:36<gbee>libmyth or libmythui?
14:37<Gammelmark>sorry for not being specific. i have the GUI defined in a -ui.xml file, but i need to replace an image in the gui from code, with a picture that is downloaded
14:37<Gammelmark>gbee, good question
14:37<gbee>UIImageType::SetImage(filename) then UIImageType::LoadImage()
14:37<gbee>for libmyth
14:38<gbee>see libmyth/uitypes.h
14:38-!-TelnetManta [n=benwilli@] has quit ["Ex-Chat"]
14:38<Gammelmark>thanks, sounds just like what i need
14:38<gbee>is just one possibility
14:39*stuarta does a little jig for freesat
14:40<gbee>better one might be to use gContext->LoadScalePixmap(filename); then assign the resulting QPixmap to UIImageType with SetImage(QPixmap);
14:40<gbee>process for MythUIImageType is pretty similar, take a look at libmythui/mythuiimage.h
14:42-!-loops [] has joined #mythtv
14:42<Gammelmark>libmyth vs libmythui... which is preferred and why? (i didn't know there were more than one)
14:42<Cardoe>libmythui for new stuff
14:42<gbee>Gammelmark: libmyth is the old code, probably won't exist after 0.22, libmythui is the replacement
14:43-!-ma9mwah|c2d [] has quit []
14:43<Gammelmark>i see
14:44<gbee>libmythui is cleaner, more capable code which has the potential to produce a much better UI eventually (early days)
14:46<Gammelmark>I can't find much about it on the wiki. is there an overview page somewhere?
14:51<gbee>Gammelmark: only this -
14:53<Gammelmark>gbee, ok thanks
14:55<sphery>Gammelmark: gbee converted a couple of plugins to use libmythui (MythAppearance--which is no longer a plugin--and MythControls). They may have some good examples (see [15594] , [15595] , and [15597] ).
14:55<sphery>Gammelmark: Also, might be some info at and/or
14:55<gbee>depends who you ask, Chutt was unimpressed with my efforts :p
14:56<sphery>I think Chutt was just saying that mythui holds much more promise than is apparent from the initial conversion. :)
14:57<gbee>which I would agree with :)
14:58<Gammelmark>thanks sphery. I guess I am on the right track then, since my (so far very limited and very static) gui uses MythHello is its base :)
15:00<janneg>stuarta: I might have fixed #2342
15:05<sphery>Gammelmark: Actually, TTBOMK, MythHello (and mythtutorial2) have not yet been updated to use libmythui. Looking at the page history, that definitely seems to be the case.
15:05<gbee>they haven't
15:05<sphery>So, the "some" information wasn't intended to mean a lot.
15:07<gbee>struggling to get my head around this scaling calculation, think I'll have to resort to trial and error
15:08<gbee>Gammelmark: much of the info on the wiki page is relevant, it's just the UI bits which are changing
15:09<sphery>Gammelmark: IIRC, someone on the list was talking about updating those two example plugins to use libmythui. See (and follow to page 2).
15:10<sphery>He's converted mythtutorial2, but he's still running 0.20-fixes, so he hasn't "released" it.
15:11<sphery>There's a link on page 2 to the code (and--if you're running 0.21-fixes or trunk--you can work with him to get it ready for "release"/wiki-fication)
15:12<Gammelmark>thanks :)
15:13<sphery>thank you (if you do work with him to get it ready to make things easier for others) :)
15:18<Gammelmark>:) lets see... first step is to understand it myself ;)

15:49<gbee>anyone using metallurgy in the UK with a widescreen TV?
15:53<gbee>or anyone like equations? Don't think this is right -
15:53<Cardoe>sphery: btw. I tested platinum.. and it still spans the checkboxes off the edge of my screen

15:57-!-grokky [] has joined #mythtv
16:00<sphery>Cardoe: Yeah. As I was writing up the patch for the StyleSetting, I found that QT is supposed to ignore any call to setStyle() that includes an invalid style name, so even though we were calling it with invalid data, it should have no effect.
16:01<sphery>Cardoe: Any change you could post a (camera) picture of the screen?
16:03<Cardoe>Nigel's commits for the CPU detection code are wrong
16:04<Cardoe>Intel Xeon's are not -march=k8
16:04<Cardoe>they're -march=nocona
16:04<Cardoe>you'll actually get segfaults if you build with k8 in a few edge cases due to 2 CPU instructions taking slightly different arguments

16:30<gbee>just accidently did rm -rf /etc/
16:31<gbee>to be fair, it forces me to reinstall and I've been meaning to do that for weeks because of a couple of weird config related problems that have been causing me problems
16:31<laga>no backup? :(
16:32<akv>gbee: maybe you did it on purpose? ;)
16:34<gbee>laga: no backup and that's probably for the best anyway as I'm pretty sure that /etc/ was heavily screwed up anyway - dm init script stopped running on startup for no explicable reason and the wireless network config was corrupted in some strange way (had to keep deleting and recreating it before wireless would work)

16:37<gbee>all these problems are probably down to the fact that I've not done a clean install since Mandriva 2005 and I've upgraded to 2006, 2007 and 2008 by package upgrades alone
16:38<Chutt>36 bugs?
16:38<gbee>after a while the old configs no longer work properly with the latest packages and cruft builds up, so I'm overdue for a spring clean
16:38-!-aeha [] has joined #mythtv

16:45<Cardoe>gbee: depends on your distro it might be recoverable.

16:49<gbee>Cardoe: yeah it almost certainly is, Smart and probably drakrpm will do package repairs, the install CD probably offers a repair option too
16:49-!-aeha [] has joined #mythtv
16:50<gbee>difficult to run Smart/drakrpm at the moment because they depended on stuff in /etc/, so I'm grabbing the latest ISO
16:50<Chutt>just don't reboot
16:50<Chutt>who needs /etc/
16:51<janneg>gbee: #4711 is a alsa problem
16:52<gbee>janneg: ok
16:52<janneg>not alsa, but the bug in our alsa output code
16:59<danielk22>buffer size problem?
17:02<Chutt>janneg, i'd use the patch from mark on the -dev list to fix, not the one in 4764

17:05<Chutt>heh, nevermind, you just added that to the ticket :p
17:08<janneg>danielk22: yes, the values suggested by mark spieth fixes it
17:12<danielk22>Chutt: I've attached a patch to #4567, the for the 8 lines of chaff on 360 pixel high video, it appears to fix the problem, but I haven't exhaustively tested it yet.

17:14<Cardoe>Chutt: well you need little things like /etc/resolv.conf
17:14<janneg>Chutt: the commit hook has not updated trac for r16390-16392
17:19<janneg>gbee: should #3722 (new mythweather tasks) moved to 0.22?
17:20<gbee>janneg: no, Chutt wants the setup UI improved for 0.21 so I was going to take a look at that tomorrow/thursday

17:27<gbee>for the first time in at least six years I've had a reason to pull my Complete Reference Guide for Linux off the shelf
17:28<gbee>it's a little outdated, but helpfully lists all the filenames :)
17:30<gbee>as well it should, weighs a tonne, has 1200 pages and cost me $60 at the time
17:30<gbee>probably the least used reference book I've ever bought
17:33<Cardoe>gbee: what distro?
17:34<Chutt>danielk22, i don't think that's correct
17:34<Chutt>since won't that allocate a non-16 line alined buffer?
17:34-!-joobie [] has joined #mythtv
17:35<gbee>Cardoe: Mandriva
17:35<Cardoe>gbee: many distros use different /etc/pam.d setups
17:36<Cardoe>simply because Linux-PAM was abandoned for so long
17:36<Cardoe>and became Red Hat-ware
17:36<gbee>just manually restored enough to run "smart fix" which should reinstall packages with missing files (got tired of waiting for the DVD Iso to download)

18:04<Chutt>i didn't realize there was a second alignment
18:04<danielk22>the second alignment is new to the patch.
18:05<danielk22>ideally the alignment should be done by ffmpeg.. but in practice we don't need to.
18:06<Chutt>the alignment should really only apply to the allocated buffer size
18:06<Chutt>and the original w/h used for display
18:07-!-kormoc [n=kormoc@unaffiliated/kormoc] has quit []
18:08<danielk22>I didn't want to change video_dim though because I don't want to cause problems for other videooutput methods, but video_disp_dim has the actual dimensions for renderers that want to be pixel exact.
18:12<danielk22>What is the general opinion on the quality of greedy vs. yadif for the new "High Quality" profile?
18:13<Chutt>i'm liking yadif more
18:13<Chutt>but it uses more cpu, of course
18:14<Chutt>looks a little better on ye olde projector
18:14<danielk22>k, I'm thinking of using that for SD material and bob+linear for HD material.. with OSD fade turned on and 2 cpu decoding for both..
18:14-!-mattwire_ [] has quit ["Leaving"]
18:14<Chutt>kerneldeint for HD
18:14<danielk22>I'm not sure on the bob, some people have problems with it
18:15<Chutt>i'd leave off bob, can be a bit troublesome
18:15<danielk22>kerneldeint ? That seems to ghost too much for me...
18:16<danielk22>For 1080i, I don't want to risk the deinterlacer to making the image any worse.
18:17*laga would love to have that patch to enable deinterlacing for frame doubling interlacers on interlaced displays.
18:17<Chutt>kernel looks better than linear, for me
18:17<laga>that's the only way to get nice output on my TV set
18:17<Chutt>but, linear's fine for the default
18:18<Chutt>linear seems a little blurry
18:18<Chutt>but, i mean, i do have an 80" screen
18:18<danielk22>Let me do some more testing with kernel, before the yadif/greedy I used to use it for SD material..
18:18<Chutt>naw, linear's fine
18:19<Chutt>thanks for making better defaults =)
18:20<danielk22>heh, good -- cuz I still see the kernel deint artifacts :)
18:20<Chutt>even for HD material?

18:21-!-onixian [n=xian@] has quit [Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)]
18:21<danielk22>yeah, it doesn't seem to catch up to fast movements until a frame too late..
18:24<danielk22>laga: This really needs to be fixed in the driver or driver setup.
18:24<sphery>danielk22: Speaking of bob, a while back I noticed that for LiveTV (only) we don't reject bob if the refresh rate is too low ( ). I had planned to have made time to figure it out and make a patch, but haven't gotten around to it.
18:24<Chutt>danielk22, are you using the 2x variant for sd?
18:25<sphery>The obvious "workaround" is to not put a deint method your display can't use into your playback profile, but I have a feeling if bob's in the defaults, a lot of users will think that Myth doesn't work.
18:25<danielk22>of yadif? yes
18:25<danielk22>with 1x yadif as fallback
18:26<danielk22>yadif doesn't cause that OSD shimmer that Bob does when V-Sync fails so 2x is fine.
18:27<danielk22>heh, "default safe"
18:27<laga>danielk22: it's been a problem for ages. even with 720x576 modelines, i get interlacing artefacts because the fields go out of sync. i'm not the on ly one who's affected or i'd just apply that patch locally :/
18:28<danielk22>laga: I know, I've been talking with Mark B + Stanley about making OpenGL V-Sync a little smarter so that Xorg.conf problems don't ever cause reversed fields.
18:29<laga>does opengl vsync work on devices other than nvidia?
18:30<danielk22>It increments an int on each sync.. odd and even # are always in sync with the odd & even fields.
18:31<danielk22>first I want to make it not crash though :)
18:32<Chutt>oh - ever notice avsync issues when opengl vsync was enabled?
18:32<danielk22>right now it's the only glX call not in our X11 lock (other than Qt stuff).. putting it in the lock kills performance, so we need to do a wait outside the lock and then do the actual v-sync within the lock, knowing it won't be in there long.
18:32<Chutt>i think it might just be the crappy motherboard gpu
18:33<danielk22>yes. :( With the 7150 that came on my MB.
18:33<Chutt>doesn't really handle 1080p in the menus
18:33<Chutt>hey, same 7150pv
18:33<danielk22>doesn't happen with another mb with 8xxx something or other...
18:34<Chutt>the menu fade transition also sucks at 1080p
18:34<danielk22>nor with the 6150 on another mb
18:34<danielk22>chutt: that's done in SW..
18:34<Chutt>not in opengl
18:35<danielk22>oh, opengl render.. :)
18:35<danielk22>That could probably be made more efficient.. but it's already 3x more efficient than the first draft.
18:38<Chutt>passive 8600gt
18:38<Chutt>no hdmi
18:39<danielk22>chutt: You can also use SW composite with the OpenGL render, if you have CPU cycles to spare.
18:39<Chutt>rather not
18:40<Chutt>gotta have hardware accel :p
18:40<Chutt>especially at 1080p
18:40<Chutt>ooh, a passive 8500gt with hdmi on board
18:41<Chutt>I propose the following question to you: Would you rather have your
18:41<Chutt>mythbox controlled by a lirc configured Microsoft Media Center remote or
18:41<Chutt>Tivo remote; or do you want to move beyond lirc and have your mythbox
18:41<Chutt>controlled by a mythMOTE?
18:41<Chutt>this guy just won't take no for an answer
18:41<Chutt>he's definitely infringing
18:42<Chutt>the logo and names are clear derivatives
18:42<GreyFoxx>he proposing selling myth logo'd remotes ?
18:42<Chutt>this will be the third time i've told him to come up with a different name/logo
18:43<danielk22>More importantly he's trading of the MythTV name, which makes it trademark infringement.
18:43<Chutt>they're still 'several months away from going into limited production'
18:43<Chutt>and 'have invested $87 (give or take $11) in the mythMOTE so far'
18:44<xris>wow, a whole $76-98
18:45<Chutt>my answer to the above question is 'a harmony remote', of course =)
18:45<Chutt>who wants multiple remotes cluttering up the place?
18:45<GreyFoxx>xris: that code for mkv/mp4 etc went in yesterday if you wanna try it out
18:45<xris>GreyFoxx: thanks. I'll recompile now and test tonight.
18:45<hads>Oo I must try that out.
18:59<xris>hmm.. I wonder what patch I'm compiling with now...
18:59<xris>oh, probably the screenshots patch

21:45<MrGandalf>danielk22: one small issue I've been seeing.. dunno if you wanted me to open a ticket. When going from/to sistandard dvb/mpeg2 (or the other way around), the sistandard doesn't get updated in the tuning.
21:45<MrGandalf>ie: tuning a sistandard of dvb then mpeg2 the mpeg2 transports attempts to be tuned as dvb.
21:46<danielk22>this is in livetv or regular recordings too?
21:46-!-MrGandalv [] has joined #mythtv
21:46-!-MavT [] has joined #mythtv
21:47<danielk22>basically it is not reading sistandard from the DB on channel changes? Or is it not being passed to the channel or tvrec class? or dunno?
21:47<danielk22>anyway it sounds like a bug that needs a ticket, just don't know how serious the problem is.
21:47<MrGandalv>not sure yet.. haven't really investigated.

21:51<danielk22>ok, this sounds relatively serious. Can you generate a -v record,channel,siparser log from the backend with as simple an example as you can?
21:52<MrGandalv>ie: if you tune do a different card (ivtv for instance) then to the other sistandard, it tunes properly.
21:52<danielk22>still you don't want to get stuck just changing channels...
21:52<MrGandalv>it's been a bug for a long time.. nobody else has reported it :)
21:53<MrGandalv>I would consider it very minor in that case

22:54<GreyFoxx>\Chutt: That sample plays fine for me
22:54<Captain_Murdoch>I get fairly consistent "waiting for prebuffer" and "video behind audio" messages and cpu is maxed out on my P4-2.6Ghz. mplaye plays the same file at under 50% cpu utilization. that's with xv output method and no deinterlace. changed settings to use libmpeg2 also and similar results.
23:01<Captain_Murdoch>turn back on xvmc and plays with about 50% cpu with no prebuffer and only a couple "video bhind audio" at the beginning
23:04<Captain_Murdoch>heh.. -users post "I got the (GPL-ed part of the) source code for the SageTV HD Extender, would someone step up to own the project to get a full mythfrontend running on it?"
