12:07<gbee>MrGandalf: several bugs, but it's usable - definately wouldn't recommend it for a production system unless your wanting to develop on trunk and you don't have a dedicated dev box
12:07<MrGandalf>gbee: I see, thanks :)
12:08<MrGandalf>myth uses a period for the channel separator in ATSC channels, correct?
12:08<stuarta>think it's configurable
12:08<stuarta>but i've seen _
12:09<MrGandalf>configurable? I'll looks around, thanks
12:09<gbee>day to day stuff, like recording and playback work - most plugins work at their most basic level (e.g. you might run into bugs in mythmusic searches etc but plain playback works fine)
12:10<MrGandalf>I'm surprised it's that close to being done.
12:10<MrGandalf>that's a lot of workl
12:12<gbee>well QT4 port has gone pretty smoothly (still using QT3Support in a lot of place though), mythui is progressing slowly
12:21<gbee>customevents have decided to stop working for no good reason in mythweather :(

16:45-!-_gunni_ [] has joined #mythtv
16:46<xris>Anduin: anyway, I just committed a couple of fixes that make it better detect some blank cover posters.
16:54*xris ponders rolling this fix into -fixes.. it works a lot better
16:59<Anduin>xris: Yeah, I wouldn't have had any (other than whitespace changes), I'll merge your changes over to the new place that code lives (and check that the cinemablend version I have still works)
17:00-!-|gunni| [] has quit [Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)]
17:01<laga>Anduin: btw, that workaround for the ubuntu/debian pyxml path changes doesn't work here. i'm investigating.
17:01<xris>Anduin: new place the code lives?
17:02<Anduin>laga: Probably my fault for giving up on resurrecting my Ubuntu test vm and only doing a fake test.
17:02<laga>Anduin: no worries
17:03<Anduin>xris: Yeah, I merged some of the common code in the perl scripts back when it looked like we would need to use a different user agent, 0.21 release and other things have kept it from seeing a commit.
17:04<xris>was wondering about why we still had .pl and .py versions of the script
17:07<Anduin>The only duplication is with the imdbpy stuff, and that comes from wanting to switch but not wanting to force the imdb python module on everyone. Still hoping to find a good imdb alternative and just bump it all out as well.
17:08<xris>ah. yeah, would be nice to not have to "circumvent" the imdb TOS...
17:10<laga>Anduin: this is.. interesting. <- the first instance works perfectly. fire up a second interpreter, make it throw a NameError and the same code stops working?!
17:10<xris>anyway, I'm just happy that I can grab cover art for everything again. :)
17:10<xris>and that it was an easy fix
17:11<Anduin>I have no idea how Freevo received permission from them, they seemed very unwilling to admit giving permission to others.
17:15<kormoc>maybe money was involved
17:16<xris>from freevo? doubtful
17:16<xris>freevo is TINY compared to mythtv
17:16<xris>Anduin: and the freevo folks haven't been forthcoming about how they did?
17:16<Anduin>seems unlikely, not the price they advertise at least
17:18<Anduin>xris: I've only tried contacting them once, I may try on irc next.
17:20<xris>certainly sounds like the thing that FOSS projects should work together about.
17:32<Anduin>laga: strange, I can't reproduce that
17:34<laga>Anduin: using python 2.5.2?
17:34<Anduin>No, 2.5.1
17:35<laga>the backend has 2.5.1 i'll try it there
17:37<laga>that probably doesn't make sense because i dont have to set sys.path there
17:38<Anduin>Yeah, to test I removed the installed _xmlplus and moved it to a non-searched directory
17:40<laga>i'll try tomorrow, SWMBO is here now :)
17:41<Anduin>Yeah, I'll be less lazy about my Ubuntu vm
17:41<laga>you'd need hardy anyways

22:24<Allen_Petersen>Greetings all.
22:25<Allen_Petersen>I've been working on a modification to MythVideo to do full backup of DVDs (not transcoding them) using vobcopy.
22:28<Allen_Petersen>I'm surprised how complicated the plugin code actually is. I spent an hour just tyring to figure out how things mapped from the XML actions to the code. Finally I was able to add a config option :)
22:28<kormoc>Allen_Petersen, you do realize that myth will play iso's (dd if=/dev/dvd of=dvd.iso) right?
22:30<Anduin>and that the code inside vob copy is nearly identical to that in mtd
22:30<Allen_Petersen>I have not tried playing an ISO before.
22:30<Allen_Petersen>I wanted an easy way for my wife to backup and play the DVD images though.. she isn't going to go out and run dd :)
22:31<kormoc>well, it's more if you want to submit it as a patch, one less dependancy is one less dependancy :)
22:31<Allen_Petersen>I currently have a partition with a lot of DVDs I have 'vobcopied'
22:33<Allen_Petersen>Well that is good news.. maybe I should go the route of adding a 'backup dvd' that grabs an iso and sticks it in the videos directory.
22:33<Anduin>or look at what is already there, but that only saves time.
22:36<Allen_Petersen>I was thinking of managing the list of 'DVD backups' separate from the videos but if I were to create a directory per DVD (with my original vobcopy plan) it doesn't look like I would be able to reuse much of the current video browser/gallery code.
22:39<Allen_Petersen>I'll keep it simple for now and just add the ability to create a full iso image and attach the movie metadata so I don't have to touch the video browser and gallery code.
22:42<kormoc>Allen_Petersen, I think Anduin's point was it already exists in mtd
22:54-!-hiphophippo [] has quit [Read error: 110 (Connection timed out)]
22:55<Allen_Petersen>I haven't seen a way in the current UI to create a full image including menus and all chapters... this is what I want to add or get working.
22:56<Allen_Petersen>if the mtd code already can create a full copy then it should be a simple matter of wiring it up to the UI
22:56-!-reynaldo1 [] has quit ["Lost terminal"]
22:57<Anduin>iso copy was added, and I'm not actually looking, but year(s) ago.
22:58<Anduin>it is a dumb copy, so as good as dd, not as good as the dd that continues on failures though.
22:59<Allen_Petersen>I see 'iso quality' per title but not a full DVD iso..
23:00<Allen_Petersen>I'll keep looking
23:01<Anduin>Allen_Petersen: You are overlooking the fact that the DVD screen UI sucks.
23:01<Allen_Petersen>I just tested adding a DVD iso (made with dd) to the list of videos and collecting the movie metadata this is good.. just what I want.. all the menus work.
23:01<Anduin>all of this should be over in #mythtv-users
23:09<Allen_Petersen>If you think the functionality is already there then I guess you are right.. I couldn't find it so I figured I would have to modify the code... Thanks for your help.. I'll keep looking.
