[01:10:14] clever: [30 20:11:14] <+Red_X> bash: /run: No such file or directory
[01:10:30] clever: yay more idiots who think they need /run to 'run' a command:P
[01:10:57] clever: ive lost count of how many try to run a command with the 'run' or '/run' command
[01:13:55] fryfrog: i've never heard of "run" or "/run" what does it come from? irc?
[01:14:25] clever: [30 20:08:53] <@clever> then just run 'passwd yourusername'
[01:14:26] clever: [30 20:08:57] <@clever> and you can change it
[01:14:34] clever: thats where they often get it:P
[01:14:48] fryfrog: ahhh
[01:15:08] clever: they also leave the quotes in 90% of the time
[01:15:14] fryfrog: hehe
[01:15:23] clever: and dont even replace 'yourusername' :P
[01:15:33] fryfrog: i hate helping people with command line who don't know *anything* about command line :/
[01:15:46] clever: yeah
[01:16:34] clever: i got arround to 'fixing' my master backend abort()ing
[01:16:51] clever: i made a c++ program which basicaly runs mythbackend then waitpid's and repeats
[01:17:05] clever: i could have easily done it in bash but i wanted to brush up on my c++
[01:17:22] fryfrog: sounds like about a 3 line cron job :p
[01:17:30] fryfrog: well, 3 line script + cron job :p
[01:17:38] clever: the thing is, i cant afford for cron to kick in 20mins late
[01:17:48] clever: the backend often aborts when starting a recording
[01:17:52] fryfrog: in a *totally* related note... i've started programming my vex!
[01:17:55] clever: so i need it to recover asap or i miss half the show
[01:18:05] fryfrog: i run my BE check/start script every 5 min
[01:18:13] fryfrog: how would it run 20min late, i wonder?
[01:18:16] clever: i would still loose 5mins of the show
[01:18:20] fryfrog: you mean if the box is overloaded or?
[01:18:37] clever: my master server seems to abort if it trys to record 2 shows back2back
[01:18:44] fryfrog: ah
[01:18:45] clever: malloc corruption
[01:18:51] fryfrog: what happens if you kill this c++ program?
[01:18:57] fryfrog: does your be stop or just not get restarted?
[01:19:09] clever: the backend just keeps running without the safety net
[01:19:16] fryfrog: ah, thats good
[01:19:31] fryfrog: sucks when you are really trying to keep the be down and something you do keeps firing it bakc up :)
[01:19:43] clever: its also a very simple program which doesnt use new/malloc(outside libs) so it should be solid
[01:20:04] clever: yeah i planned to make something like a sigusr1 to make it stop restarting the backend
[01:20:38] clever: but when i kill the c++ prog, it just dies without bringing the backend down
[01:20:38] clever: snprintf(buffer,200,"mythbackend -l",argv[1]);
[01:20:45] clever: char *args[]={"sh","-c",buffer,NULL};
[01:20:50] clever: execve("/bin/sh",args,envp);
[01:21:17] clever: i had trouble just running the backend directly since execve wants a full path, and i forget the lib wrapper that can search PATH
[01:21:43] clever: im sharing the script between 2 diff versions of ubuntu, so they need different PATH's
[01:22:21] clever: i also run it in the same directory(nfs) on every backend, so the logs are in 1 central place
[01:22:55] justinh: clever: you're certifiably the user on the very edge of any use case
[01:23:24] mzb_d800: fryfrog: usps?

[01:23:42] fryfrog: it'll prolly be tuesday
[01:23:48] mzb_d800: kk
[01:24:02] fryfrog: played around with it anymore?
[01:24:20] mzb_d800: no ... I've got nothing else up my sleeve
[01:24:31] fryfrog: yeah, nothing else i can think of either
[01:24:56] mzb_d800: it did occur to me to try testing tracks with a multimeter ... but I'm guessing that would be a painful and fruitless exercise
[01:25:12] fryfrog: and tedious :)
[01:25:17] mzb_d800: yep
[01:25:19] clever: justinh: ive tried to reproduce my abort() bug on a slave with a diff card, but it didnt react
[01:25:54] mzb_d800: so I've been making a script to do an osd menu for my music videos instead
[01:26:09] mzb_d800: (although main FE is currently in use by 3yo:|)
[01:28:02] mzb_d800: very alpha ... but works well enough at this stage to prove the concept
[01:28:32] mzb_d800: need to add more functions I guess
[01:28:44] mzb_d800: (rather than just "add a song")
[01:29:21] mzb_d800: stuff like: playlist clear, turn shuffle off, add band, add random selection ... etc

[02:34:55] mzb_d800: how can I get certain recordings to playback in a specific zoom mode (rather than the default) ??
[02:34:57] iamlindoro: #knoppmyth would probably have a better idea
[02:37:11] iamlindoro: mzb_d800, I don't think there is a way, just the global setting or changing while in-playback
[02:37:42] mzb_d800: yeah ... bit painful unless I (somehow) transcode them all, I guess
[02:38:13] mzb_d800: I think the issue is for 4:3 recordings that are transmitted in 16:9
[02:38:52] mzb_d800: I'm happy not to have "auto-zoom" as long as I could manually set the playback zoom level for a particular recording group (or file)

[02:45:09] jeffery: k cool
[02:45:13] mzb_d800: and then 'gkrellm -s mythbox' on your host

[03:19:19] strex-work: do you know if there is any configuration that needs to be done on the mythtv box to get it working?

[03:41:33] Kichigai: I've disabled the "skip-external-locking" feature in MySQL
[03:43:13] fryfrog: mysql has to bind to the network interface, most of the distros i've seen lately lock it to localhost by default
[03:43:16] kdubya: is your frontend not seeing the backend or not seeing mysql?
[03:43:20] fryfrog: i dunno wtf "skip external locking" is
[03:43:25] Kichigai: Not seeing MySQL.
[03:43:35] kdubya: ^ what he said
[03:43:44] Kichigai: One second
[03:44:33] cesman: skip-external-locking isn't what you want to disable
[03:44:38] Kichigai: Oh.
[03:45:19] Kichigai: So what should I set the bind address to? The item's address on the network?
[03:45:23] Kichigai: Err, the machine's
[03:46:45] cesman: just comment it or delete and restart mysql
[03:47:06] Kichigai: Wicked
[03:47:47] Kichigai: Cool. Now the frontend just crashes
[03:48:03] cesman: local?
[03:48:12] Kichigai: No, remote.
[03:48:23] Kichigai: One sec, it's the OS X version. Let me invoke it from a proper terminal.
[03:48:29] cesman: what I usually do if I'm going to do something w/ mysql, is I stop the backend first
[03:48:36] Kichigai: That's what I did.
[03:48:55] Kichigai: Stop Backend, stop SQL, edit file, start SQL, start Backend
[03:48:56] cesman: do what i need to do, restart mysql, the backend and finally the frontend
[03:51:16] Kichigai: Oh for God's sakes, it's not the database, it can't find GANT
[03:51:53] Kichigai: It seems whoever built the app forgot to include themes.
[03:52:32] cesman: Kichigai: this isn't KnoppMyth is it?
[03:52:46] Kichigai: No, it's the Mac OS X MythFrontend
[03:52:52] Kichigai: KnoppMyth is running fine.

[03:56:00] Kichigai: It's running fine now that I've dug up where the themes were improperly linked to, but now it's just... black

[04:16:34] fryfrog: io wait pretty high?

[04:17:00] Kichigai: Nope. Just a single Celeron 600
[04:17:12] Kichigai: My load peaked at 17.6
[04:17:17] fryfrog: then why would you run 3 simultanius commflags?
[04:17:31] Kichigai: I don't know why.
[04:17:42] Kichigai: It's stock configuration of KnoppMyth
[04:17:56] fryfrog: thats... retarded :p
[04:18:08] fryfrog: mythcommflag is very cpu bound, you should really only run ~1 per cpu/core
[04:18:20] Kichigai: I don't know how/why this is configured this way.
[04:18:26] Kichigai: Weirder: I still only have ONE recording.

[04:27:41] kdubya: if i remember it is actually the reason ebay bought them
[04:27:50] kdubya: ebay was trying to start thier own and got sued
[04:27:53] kdubya: so they just bought them
[04:28:53] iamlindoro: Guess I should have started trying to pay bills 21 days ago, guh
[04:28:55] iamlindoro: er ugh
[04:43:30] cesman: Kichigai: the number of jobs ran on a backend is in mythtv-setup
[04:44:09] cesman: General > 5 or 6 pages in... look for Job Queue (Backend-Specific)
[04:44:27] Kichigai: cesman, Not a clue, but it's already fixed.
[04:44:34] cesman: we don't set a default amount w/ KnoppMyth
[04:44:45] cesman: whatever the default is with MythTV is what it should be
[04:46:02] Kichigai: Well, I think it was the fact that I was constantly restarting the backend.

[05:25:00] iamlindoro: Did you do all the *other* steps like setting up an appropriate lircd.conf and an lircrc for myth based on that lircd.conf?
[05:25:17] cesman: if that works, the most likely ~/.mythtv/lircrc is incorrect
[05:25:39] shahar_: iamlindoro: it looks like mythbuntu did all of that...
[05:25:40] cesman: _read_ what iamlindoro stated
[05:26:11] iamlindoro: it looks like it didn't do it right, if at all :)

[05:26:25] Steven_M: hi all
[05:26:29] shahar_: iamlindoro: I definitely have a lircd.conf that is correlated to my remote, and I also have a ~/.lirc/lircrc that has the mythtv programming in it
[05:26:31] cesman: hello
[05:26:31] iamlindoro: and read what cesman said, as irw is indeed your next step-- if that doesn't work, then your lircd.conf is wrong
[05:26:39] iamlindoro: if it *does* work then your lircrc is wrong or missing
[05:26:40] shahar_: should it be in ~/.mythtv?
[05:26:56] iamlindoro: That's where the lircrc would be, but that's not your next step.
[05:27:00] kdubya: doesnt mythbuntu do all the lirc stuff for you?
[05:27:02] iamlindoro: You need to do things in order
[05:27:02] shahar_: oh
[05:27:06] kdubya: mythdora does
[05:27:12] shahar_: there is a ~/.mythtv/lircrcd

[05:27:35] shahar_: how do I test that I have a working lircd.conf ?
[05:27:48] iamlindoro: "iamlindoro> and read what cesman said, as irw is indeed your next step-- if that doesn't work, then your lircd.conf is wrong"
[05:28:12] shahar_: lircd.conf has one line that isn't commented out. It says :include /usr/share/lirc/remotes/streamzap/lircd.conf.streamzap
[05:28:15] iamlindoro: "<cesman> you need to run irw w/ the daemon running"
[05:28:40] iamlindoro: And do oyu have a black streamzap remote?
[05:29:00] Steven_M: does mythtv have a tuning function within life tv so that you can see the picture as you tune, like a normal tv?
[05:29:21] kdubya: Steven_M, you can set it up that way, but it doesnt change real fast
[05:29:54] iamlindoro: Once again, and this will be the third time telling you, you NEED TO RUN IRW
[05:29:59] iamlindoro: and press buttons
[05:30:09] kazer_ (kazer_! has joined #mythtv-users
[05:30:10] iamlindoro: Then you will know if your lircd.conf is correct, and won't be randomly editing files
[05:30:18] shahar_: okay that's totally weird
[05:30:33] shahar_: apparently my remote responds to being low on battery by sending incorrect signals
[05:30:36] shahar_: thanks a bunch
[05:31:00] shahar_: (I found this out using irw, which worked better the closer I got to the tv, and worked great after I put in new batteries)

[14:36:38] laga: sphery: ah. wait a second.
[14:36:45] xal2: it's not a problem with my card because it works fine in another tv viewing application.
[14:36:56] justinh: xal2: you need to read the mythtv docs about configuring audio
[14:37:35] justinh: specifically the part about muting the soundcard channel which the tuner audio is plugged into, and selecting that input to be *captured* in the linux mixer app
[14:38:17] xal2: alright
[14:38:32] xal2: I'll look into that
[14:38:36] xal2: I just thought it was a bug haha
[14:38:54] sphery: laga: Just meant that I don't know anything about the original problem. (Wasn't sure what "problem" gbee meant by, "I'm open to any solution for the problem ubuntu users have with xmltv configs.") No hurry, though--take your time talking about the other patch.
[14:40:23] avihayb: I have a problem, movies that I record useing liveTV and pressing the record button don't show up on the list of recorded shows. they appear on the info-center under automatic removal or something like that. if I see them there and press enter, a menu shows up that lets me move them into the "deafault group". when I do that, they vanish from this list and appear in the view recordings list. is that intended? did I do somthing
[14:40:23] avihayb: wrong? this is a raletively fresh install. In a previous install, even when I entered viewing liveTV, it generated files for as long as I watched, and they were imidiatly accesable via the recorded shows menu, and I didn't even know where the record button was.

[14:43:14] avihayb: thanks justinh
[14:43:32] justinh: right. I added mp4 as a new file type & it didn't work. renamed the files to .mpg – low & behold they are visible
[14:44:04] laga: sphery: okay, i just had some ubuntu duties :)
[14:44:16] sphery: np
[14:44:46] justinh: think I just found a bug
[14:44:49] sphery: I was just hoping that better understanding the issue would make it easier to understand the benefits/disadvantages of various approaches.
[14:45:14] laga: sphery: the issue is simple. mythtv-setups runs as the normal user. mythfilldatabase runs under the "mythtv" user. now if mythbackend runs mythfilldatabase, it tells the grabber to look in /home/mythtv/.xmltv/ for its config file which is wrong, because it's in /home/$user
[14:45:18] sphery: Though, I should say, I won't be the one taking the ticket from gbee (as I'm not a real dev :), so feel free to ignore me.
[14:45:52] justinh: yup. added mp4 as a file type & it's not been put into the videotypes table
[14:46:01] sphery: laga: Aaaaah... Makes perfect sense.
[14:48:58] sphery: laga: So, the downside of the new SG type is that it requires users to configure the directories in mythtv-setup (mandatory step in the HOWTO). Also (though this is the case with any SG stuff) when mythtv-setup verifies the directory is accessible, it will do so as the "normal" user (meaning that mythtv user may not be able to access the directory).

[14:53:29] sphery: laga: The configpath won't do any directory/permissions checks, either, but the path could be automatically added when the user specifies the xmltv config file. So, to get that benefit with SG's, we could just have the videosource config portion of mythtv-setup automatically insert directories into the "XMLTV Configuration" (or whatever it's called) SG--perhaps with a StorageGroup::AddDirectory(QString) function that either ...
[14:53:35] sphery: ... creates a new storage group or just adds one more directory to it, if the directory is not already in it.
[14:55:03] yianni__ (yianni__! has joined #mythtv-users
[14:59:00] laga: we could add ~/.mythtv/ into that SG
[14:59:25] laga: we just get problems if someone has two config files with the same name
[14:59:32] laga: so that's not exactly a good idea
[15:01:09] sphery: and might have access problems depending on the /home/mythtv directory permissions
[15:01:31] avihayb: oh, thanks iamlindoro_
[15:01:52] sphery: Yeah, the big problem with SG's would be having 2 files with the same name in different directories.

[15:13:05] eugen: i think current video cards have dvi ?
[15:13:14] iamlindoro_: yes, current cards also have DVI
[15:13:29] iamlindoro_: I guess you're just going to have to look at the specifications
[15:15:42] eugen: never seen 3 connectors on video cards. We are talking about this-
[15:15:45] eugen: right?
[15:16:05] iamlindoro_: That cable, but on the card it's generally done w/ a breakout cable that looks similar to s-video
[15:16:14] iamlindoro_: card->dongle->component video
[15:16:37] justinh: most cards with component outputs generally come with an adapter of some sort to bring the component signals out
[15:16:44] sphery: laga: Hmmm. Storage Groups gets more confusing because of the hostname portion...
[15:17:16] laga: sphery: hostname? the paths are not host name specific. which one might consider a problem with the current code as well
[15:18:34] sphery: storage groups are hostname-specific (though, if the hostname is specified for the master backend, its configuration be used on any backend unless overridden)
[15:19:24] laga: is that a problem?
[15:19:37] laga: right now you need to run mfdb on the same host anyways
[15:19:42] sphery: in theory, this should only apply to the master backend (since only the mbe should run mythfilldatabase), so, I guess we could just make the XMLTV config SG automatically use the mbe

[19:57:13] directhex: but certainly nothing in reverse
[19:57:29] directhex: LotR, because the backend uses qt, and qt needs x libraries
[19:57:42] directhex: LotR, you don't need to run an x server, but you need all the x libraries
[19:57:55] dustybin: "you must think first before you move" – Bruce Lee
[19:58:08] LotR: directhex: but why would a backend use qt?
[19:58:43] directhex: LotR, because c++ is shit without something to abstract away some of the pain?
[19:59:27] LotR: directhex: oh. so I should be cursing Qt for not seperating gui/non-gui functionality then
[19:59:34] directhex: right
[20:00:00] directhex: qt4 does a better job, assuming there are x-less qt4 packages in debian. and assuming you build mythtv trunk, and assuming you don't mind being the first person to use it

[20:03:07] iamlindoro: That "r" means "recorder"
[20:03:08] directhex: other functionality is secondary to a pvr app
[20:03:13] LotR: justinh: yeah, but the r means you're building a collection, no?

[20:05:09] justinh: yeah, I'm one of those loons who deletes stuff. nothing is worth keeping, generally
[20:06:01] justinh: anyway, back to the discussion at hand.. mythtv is really about recording television. that's what it does best. other apps do the 'media player/organiser' much better
[20:06:18] dustybin: I dont bother _keeping_ much these days, only the stuff i use, otherwise its a waste of space

[21:13:05] CNLiberal: but not in their original bit format (AC3 or PCM)
[21:13:08] KjetilK: heh
[21:13:27] justinh: CNLiberal: enable passthru
[21:13:49] sphery (sphery! has joined #mythtv-users
[21:14:41] CNLiberal: i did enable passthrough, that's how I was able to get 5.1 on LiveTV HD and recorded HD...but no sound on normal stereo
[21:17:03] KjetilK: CNLiberal: so, speaker-test -Dplug:surround51 -c6 would give the expected results?
[21:17:10] CNLiberal: let me check
[21:18:08] CNLiberal: no
[21:18:20] CNLiberal: all i get is sound from the front left and front right speakers
[21:18:29] CNLiberal: nothing else, but it does try and test the other 3 channels
[21:18:35] CNLiberal: or 4 channels (LFE)
[21:19:03] iamlindoro: that's because he probably doesn't have a device called surround51, as that's a user creation
[21:19:22] xal2: how do i fix sound distortion? i followed the mythtv documentation and switched all the recording profiles to 48khz
[21:19:29] xal2: is there anywhere else i need to adjust audio
[21:19:51] CNLiberal: i can try default
[21:20:12] CNLiberal: i mean spdif
[21:20:18] CNLiberal: so i ran this command:
[21:20:24] CNLiberal: peaker-test -Dplug:spdif -c6
[21:20:36] CNLiberal: speaker-test -Dplug:spdif -c6
[21:20:44] CNLiberal: and I'm only getting sound out of front right and left
[21:20:50] CNLiberal: no center, rears or sub
[21:20:57] iamlindoro: sounds like a job for #alsa
[21:21:07] CNLiberal: i've already been to #alsa
[21:21:22] CNLiberal: we got Myth working with only stereo on all channels and all other sounds working
[21:21:30] CNLiberal: but i want 5.1...shoudl I get a different card?
[21:22:04] iamlindoro: is your ALSA device set to ALSA:default?
[21:22:08] iamlindoro: in myth
[21:23:30] CNLiberal: under General Setup...
[21:23:37] justinh: if you want analogue 5.1 output... ugh
[21:23:49] CNLiberal: Audio Output: ALSA:digital
[21:24:16] CNLiberal: Passthrough: ALSA:id\ec958:{AES0 0x02}
[21:24:28] CNLiberal: Max audio channels "Stereo"
[21:24:31] iamlindoro: I would be using ALSA:default, personally
[21:24:39] CNLiberal: Enable AC3 and DTS checked
[21:24:48] CNLiberal: if I run ALSA:default, then sounds works, but no 5.1
[21:24:48] justinh: ALSA:default for the general audio output
[21:24:49] iamlindoro: as should 90% of all people
[21:25:24] justinh: then enable passthru & set the output device for that to ALSA:$device where $device is the name of the digital channel
[21:25:53] iamlindoro: and, going off what Justin has said, the passthrough device is probably already correct (IEC958 is common)
[21:26:24] CNLiberal: digital channel?
[21:26:44] CNLiberal: ok
[21:26:46] iamlindoro: fork echidna?
[21:26:56] CNLiberal: i'm setting ALSA: default
[21:27:02] justinh: on my frontend, just ALSA:iec958 was sufficient

[21:28:06] CNLiberal: getting 5.1 sound on cubs game
[21:28:35] CNLiberal: no sound on analog stations
[21:29:14] CNLiberal: ok
[21:29:32] CNLiberal: let me try changing max channels to 5.1
[21:29:36] CNLiberal: instead of stereo

[21:37:47] CNLiberal: can you explain that more?
[21:38:03] xal2: I'm not really sure how to describe the sound
[21:38:09] xal2: it's just a distortion, not an echo though
[21:38:26] CNLiberal: like the GAIN is too hight?
[21:38:36] xal2: what is gain?
[21:38:55] CNLiberal: the input sounds too
[21:39:03] xal2: let's just say yes
[21:39:18] xal2: like you now when you turn your speakers way too loud
[21:39:21] CNLiberal: if you are in the alsa sound mixer and everything is jacked all the way up, that's probably it

[21:55:23] dustybin: SD looks great on it
[21:55:25] CNLiberal: except this balls
[21:55:36] dustybin: SD on a flatpanel looks beyond terrible
[21:55:43] CNLiberal: I guess Digital has spoiled me on picture quality
[21:55:49] CNLiberal: it's not good, there's no doubt
[21:56:06] CNLiberal: cuz the rez is so high on a FP, and SD is so tiny

[21:57:05] dustybin: ok

[22:04:58] iamlindoro: If you ask about your precise hardware you will be waiting until you are old and grey, better just to ask your question
[22:05:15] iamlindoro: and if it's about setting up the card itself in linux, that's a question for #linuxtv
[22:05:41] Striker: nah
[22:05:56] Striker: i have a 115, just wondering how different it is
[22:06:02] iamlindoro: entirely different
[22:06:20] iamlindoro: different hardware, different level of working in linux, different capabilities
[22:06:35] Striker: do you know what chipset it uses?
[22:07:15] iamlindoro: It's an xc3028 card IIRC
[22:07:23] iamlindoro: again, these are #linuxtv questions
[22:07:40] iamlindoro: the 115 can do QAM and OTA, the 120 is OTA only, etc., etc.
[22:08:41] Striker: yeah, not like QAM actually does me any good since 99% of my cable channels are encrypted
[22:08:49] CNLiberal: as is most folks
[22:08:59] CNLiberal: i was getting mojoHD a couple weeks ago
[22:09:08] CNLiberal: then it got encrypted

[22:09:19] ** iamlindoro goes back to watching all his channels in perfect digital **

[22:10:15] CNLiberal: hahaha
[22:10:28] ** dustybin twitches **
[22:10:33] CNLiberal: well i just bought this house, have done 5 months in renovation, so i don't plan on moving anytime soon
[22:10:50] CNLiberal: so you're just saying that you happen to have a cable provider that's not encrypting anything
[22:11:29] CNLiberal: i'd love to find a way to make the HDHR grab all channels
[22:11:41] CNLiberal: i might be willing to pay a monthly fee for a comcast box that i can hack
[22:12:04] iamlindoro: You can't hack the boxes, and there's nothing that will allow you to decrypt US cable
[22:12:17] iamlindoro: as the boxes aren't what sets the policy
[22:12:20] iamlindoro: the headend does
[22:12:21] CNLiberal: i've heard of people who ARE hacking those boxes
[22:12:26] CNLiberal: exactly
[22:12:28] iamlindoro: You've heard from liars
[22:12:35] CNLiberal: :-(
[22:13:17] CNLiberal: so where do u live so I can plan my next move?
[22:13:17] CNLiberal: haha
[22:13:27] iamlindoro: Bay Area, California
[22:13:39] CNLiberal: comcast?
[22:13:42] iamlindoro: You actually have *two* cable providers here from which you can get all your channels via firewire off the box
[22:13:53] dustybin: iamlindoro: what is your root password and ip
[22:14:01] CNLiberal: is that how you're doing it? using a cable box with firewire out?
[22:14:17] iamlindoro: and my password is "dustybinisawoman"
[22:14:22] dustybin: :P
[22:14:25] CNLiberal: interesting

[22:14:36] Striker: i lived in san jose last year...but my friend's cable box w/that firewire hookup was pretty much dead
[22:14:46] iamlindoro: CNLiberal, Yes, via firewire-- but again, the firewire policies are set by the headend, and having it open on all channels is almost unheard of
[22:14:56] dustybin: i wonder if a female has ever entered this channel?

[22:15:40] iamlindoro: It's a totally default myth firewire setup, no tricks
[22:15:45] Striker: ^ the mythbox i built for him
[22:15:58] iamlindoro: There was nothing for comcast to "fix"
[22:16:08] sid3windr: messy messy
[22:16:16] iamlindoro: Single boxes don't have their own policy, we *all* get the same operational policy pushed by the headend
[22:16:17] dustybin: LOL
[22:16:21] Striker: there was if the box couldn't even get a signal
[22:16:23] iamlindoro: He was *setting it up wrong*
[22:16:24] dustybin: ive never seen a fan that big before LOL
[22:16:25] Striker: his line was messed up
[22:16:42] iamlindoro: Well then that has nothing to do with a claim that the firewire port was "pretty much dead"
[22:16:46] dustybin: thats the kind of shit clever would do
[22:16:48] Striker: ...
[22:16:52] iamlindoro: *all the ports were dead*
[22:16:53] Striker: iamlindoro: now you're just misreading
[22:16:54] CNLiberal: yeah i've seen that case before
[22:17:12] iamlindoro: ah, I see, his box was dead
[22:17:12] Striker: i was talking about the entire box that comcast sends
[22:17:17] Striker: lol
[22:17:19] iamlindoro: well then that's not very useful information, is it?
[22:17:38] Striker: he eventually got it replaced and his line checked again
[22:17:43] Striker: but i already moved by then
[22:17:44] CNLiberal: i've heard of some cable boxes WITH firewire ports not being enabled
[22:17:46] iamlindoro: Also interested as to why someone would want to build an HTPC that looks like an outboard motor, but that's neither here nor there
[22:17:57] iamlindoro: CNLiberal, 99% of them behave that way
[22:17:59] CNLiberal: i would hope that's a backend
[22:18:05] Striker: it may look like an outboard motor
[22:18:11] Striker: but it's quiteter than your 80mm fans
[22:18:13] iamlindoro: But it sounds like a jet engine?
[22:18:16] Striker: NO
[22:18:17] Striker: ffs
[22:18:20] CNLiberal: i believ it
[22:18:24] CNLiberal: slow RPMs
[22:18:25] Striker: are you people ignorant?

[22:18:29] CNLiberal: lots of air movement
[22:18:29] Striker: yes
[22:18:36] Striker: it moves a LOT of air with practically no sound
[22:18:40] dustybin: Striker: you need to speak to our inhouse mythtv guru, clever
[22:18:41] Striker: much lower rpm
[22:18:47] iamlindoro: We are well aware of how fans work, partner
[22:19:08] Striker: iamlindoro: then you should know it doesnt sound like a jet engine
[22:19:08] CNLiberal: what is that a 240mm fan?
[22:19:10] dustybin: Striker: even though your case isnt my style, at least you have some love :-)
[22:19:18] iamlindoro: dustybin, if by guru you mean "incapable of running it without breaking it," then yes, he's a guru alright
[22:19:24] Striker: on the side, i think it's 240
[22:19:24] dustybin: :P
[22:19:28] Striker: the one in the front is 150mm
[22:19:30] CNLiberal: cool
[22:19:48] CNLiberal: i'm not sure if renting a box for $13 a month would be worth it
[22:20:06] CNLiberal: cuz then you have to buy the service too...and that's another $50

[22:21:50] CNLiberal: i've always got the impression that firewire was a harsh mistress
[22:21:56] CNLiberal: that sometimes it just craps out on u
[22:22:23] Striker: that was probably true when firewire was still only used on apple products
[22:22:41] CNLiberal: i thought i've read emails on gossamer that state that even to this day

[22:26:13] CNLiberal: i'm really hoping that some linux guru can hack open the new ASUS soundcard that has built in Doby TrueHD and DTS MA HD
[22:26:32] CNLiberal: it'd be wonderful to have a FE that can actually play BD
[22:26:58] Striker: oh wait...
[22:27:14] Striker: when i said that side fan was 240mm...i wasnt thinking about that box
[22:27:26] Striker: the box in those images has 2x150mm
[22:27:40] Striker: my current desktop uses a newer version of that case which has a 240mm on the side

[22:36:40] CNLiberal: anyone have advice on xine?
[22:37:04] iamlindoro: Striker, many of us
[22:37:12] Striker: *shrug* does mythtv have exclusive control over your audio devices or something?
[22:37:22] the_alien__: nope
[22:37:31] Striker: iamlindoro: do any of you guys use the newer versions of ffmpeg?
[22:37:43] CNLiberal: i have no would i tell?
[22:37:48] Striker: lsof
[22:37:52] CNLiberal: i just closed Myth and tried opening the video with VLC
[22:37:54] CNLiberal: no luck
[22:38:19] iamlindoro: Striker, Myth has its own imported version of ffmpeg, which is updated periodically. A new sync is in progress and will be finished hopefully-soon
[22:38:31] Striker: well, i ran into this bug:
[22:38:46] niklauz (niklauz!i=d863b241@gateway/web/ajax/ has quit (" ajax IRC Client")
[22:38:53] Striker: i have to compile mythtv with extra flags to put the include directories in the right order
[22:38:57] Striker: otherwise i get a mess
[22:38:59] iamlindoro: Myth has a medium-to-large number of specific tweaks needed, so fetching libavcodec/format/etc as an external is not feasible
[22:39:23] Striker: well that's fine, it would be nice if the include flags were in the correct order then
[22:39:27] niklauz (niklauz!i=d863b241@gateway/web/ajax/ has joined #mythtv-users
[22:39:27] sid3windr: this begs the question – why does it need tweaks? do the regular libs suck so much?
[22:39:54] Striker: yeah, if they need them, changes should be sent upstream?
[22:40:06] Striker: unless they make up for mythtv's shortcommings? ;P
[22:40:07] sid3windr: depends if they're pretty specific
[22:40:09] sid3windr: but I just wonder why
[22:40:23] hads: ffmpeg likes changing a lot too
[22:40:46] iamlindoro: ffmpeg is not player software, it's encoders, decoders, and demuxers... Myth is built on libav* but it is not *just* that.. it needs tweaks specific to player software
[22:40:58] Striker: yeah...but it's quite a hassle for my distro
[22:41:15] Striker: you'd think they would just have a mini-fork or something
[22:41:21] samnoble: is there a way to set a unique player command for multiple videos? I have a hundred or so that need mplayer -aid 2.
[22:41:29] hads: Not really, your distro just build myth as myth has ffmpeg built in.
[22:41:35] iamlindoro: mv /usr/lib/libav* ~ && make && mv ~/libav* /usr/lib is a hassle?
[22:42:06] iamlindoro: anyway, fI'm sure a patch would be welcome
[22:42:10] Striker: hads: as I explained, that does not work
[22:42:18] samnoble: They're all in a coulple directories.
[22:42:34] samnoble: s/coulple/couple
[22:42:36] iamlindoro: samnoble, your answer is already in the archives from about two minutes before you entered
[22:42:44] Striker: i'm updating my distro's module for mythtv
[22:42:50] iamlindoro: and you were sent the link to them on entry, soooo
[22:42:52] Striker: which tbh, has been quite a pain ;)
[22:43:02] samnoble: I thought i was responding to that answer.
[22:43:12] iamlindoro: ah, ok
[22:43:16] iamlindoro: in that case, no :)
[22:43:24] hads: SQL?
[22:43:34] samnoble: So thank for all the help iamlindoro.
[22:43:56] iamlindoro: as hads suggests, if they are in very specific dirs then you could manage it with SQL, otherwise, it's gonna be manual
[22:44:04] Striker:
[22:44:17] Striker: ^ that's how i'm currently getting around bug #4982
[22:45:32] ** samnoble cranks nose back into shape and goes to look at phpmysql... **
[22:46:10] CNLiberal: hmmmmm
[22:46:16] CNLiberal: i can get mplayer to work
[22:46:20] CNLiberal: i'm not opposed to mplayer
[22:46:29] CNLiberal: just don't know it as well as i "thought" i knew xine
[22:46:41] Striker: i like xine over mplayer any day
[22:46:54] Striker: CNLiberal: explain exactly what the issue is?
[22:47:12] Striker: i'm confused as to if it's audio or video you dont have
[22:47:29] CNLiberal: When I change MythTV General Settings, to output sound over my Live 5.1 card, i got 5.1 working in live TV
[22:47:33] CNLiberal: sound is what i'm not getting
[22:48:00] Striker: do you have lsof installed?
[22:48:57] Striker: lsof|grep dev/snd
[22:49:09] CNLiberal: yes sound is installed and working
[22:49:09] Striker: see what actually is using your devices
[22:49:12] CNLiberal: ok myth
[22:49:19] CNLiberal: lsof?
[22:49:40] CNLiberal: hang
[22:49:41] Striker: yeah, lsof lists handles on your system
[22:50:16] CNLiberal: ok with mplayer playing...
[22:50:19] CNLiberal: i'm getting sound
[22:50:26] CNLiberal: lsof command yields this
[22:50:33] CNLiberal: joltman@HomeTheater:~/.xine$ lsof|grep dev/snd

[22:50:59] Striker: k, well it sounds like xine either is not opening the right device, or is not opening it properly
[22:51:07] CNLiberal: that's my guess
[22:51:16] Striker: is your Live 5.1 card 0?
[22:51:23] Striker: or do you have other cards in there?
[22:51:26] CNLiberal: that's the only card
[22:51:32] CNLiberal: this is a FE only
[22:51:48] Striker: dunno what FE means
[22:51:55] CNLiberal: FE = FrontEnd
[22:52:00] Striker: ah, k
[22:52:24] Striker: have you ever had sound in xine?
[22:52:28] CNLiberal: yep
[22:52:35] Striker: you might see if it's trying to use OSS instead of alsa
[22:52:36] CNLiberal: before i started f-in around with myth settings today
[22:52:48] CNLiberal: the default audio driver is set to auot
[22:52:51] CNLiberal: let me set it to alsa
[22:53:08] Striker: play a file in xine and see what `lsof|grep xine` shows you
[22:53:15] Striker: use pastebin this time
[22:53:31] CNLiberal: k hang
[22:53:47] samnoble: hads: iamlindoro : any pointers on how to set those custom player commands? I've got phpmyadmin pointed at the videometadata table, and mysql> prompt open but I'm all thumbs with SQL.
[22:54:51] cesman: why not just do it thru the frontend?
[22:54:54] CNLiberal: Striker:
[22:55:09] hads: cesman: He wants to do it in bulk
[22:55:31] cesman: ok
[22:55:36] cesman: have fun!
[22:55:40] hads: :)
[22:56:08] samnoble: Now I'm encouraged!
[22:56:08] hads: samnoble: Not something I've done so no. Set one by hand and then copy what it does.
[22:56:35] iamlindoro: samnoble, Bring up your video list in phpmyadminm and select the tickboxes for the ones you want to have the command.... then scroll to the very bottom of the list, and press the edit icon
[22:57:08] iamlindoro: on the resulting screen, find the field for the unique player command, and put it in, substituting %s for the filename, ie mplayer -fs -myoptions %s
[22:57:21] iamlindoro: when done, okay the changes in phpmyadmin
[22:57:24] iamlindoro: the end

[22:58:33] Striker: CNLiberal: only thing i can think of then, is check your volume in xine
[22:58:35] Striker: yeah
[22:58:39] Striker: it should be working in that case

[22:59:28] CNLiberal: i'm not sure what I should put in the command line to enable hwac3,hwdts
[22:59:41] CNLiberal: not to mention the remote commands in .lircrc/mplayer
[22:59:53] cesman: gmplayer is for the GUI

[23:01:02] CNLiberal: sorry
[23:01:12] CNLiberal: the path is /home/joltman/.lirc/mplayer
[23:01:24] CNLiberal: that is the lirc commands for mplayer in mythbuntu
[23:01:52] hads: cesman: If you don't use lirc for anything else on your box that makes sense.
[23:02:08] hads: Otherwise it's a little backwards.
[23:02:51] CNLiberal: i suppose i could use the internal player
[23:03:13] Striker: doesnt the internal one already use mplayer?
[23:03:19] CNLiberal: i didn't think so
[23:03:25] CNLiberal: i thought it was nuppleplayer
[23:03:29] hads: No, internal is interna
[23:03:33] Striker: oh, i know what you mean
[23:03:45] Striker: yeah, i was thinking of something else
[23:03:50] Striker: or i'm going crazy
[23:04:01] Striker: probably more likely
[23:04:23] CNLiberal: except, mplayer seems to be having difficulties with VNC
[23:04:24] CNLiberal: hehe
[23:04:26] CNLiberal: but that's ok
[23:04:53] CNLiberal: so anyone have any idea what i should use for the mplayer commands?
[23:05:30] cesman: hads: if you want to discuss using only mplayer, what are you doing in #mythtv-users?! ;)
[23:05:54] hads: cesman: :)
[23:06:08] hads: I was more referring to things like irexec etc.
[23:06:21] CNLiberal: i was more referring to the command to put into myth
[23:06:27] CNLiberal: i guess this'll be interesting figuring out
[23:07:10] Striker: man mplayer and see if you can find your hwac3 and hwdts options

[23:21:50] Dagmar: It's not possible.
[23:21:55] GreyFoxx: No, in the sense that there is no such code there to do that

[23:22:53] clever: thats the 2nd time ive seen somebody wanting that this week:P
[23:22:57] Striker: it's not exactly easy to play a console with 1–2 seconds of latency
[23:23:01] CNLiberal: does mplayer support DVD menus yet?
[23:23:01] Striker: hehe
[23:23:14] Striker: it should, i think it's a command line switch
[23:23:21] clever: CNLiberal: not shure, but i know vlc handles them
[23:23:24] Striker: might require a plugin
[23:23:38] clever: but im not shure how well vlc works without a mouse
[23:23:40] GreyFoxx: CN: They do now, at least in their development code
[23:23:44] CNLiberal: ahh
[23:23:46] GreyFoxx: no idea if the releases do
[23:23:52] CNLiberal: so probably not mythbuntu
[23:23:56] GreyFoxx: but I rarely use nmplayer, and never for dvd;s

[23:50:22] niklauz: my question? iamlindoro?
[23:50:33] iamlindoro: Yes, your question
[23:50:37] justinh: wtf is MPCHC?
[23:50:52] iamlindoro: hell, everyone's question this afternoon
[23:50:59] niklauz: whats wrong with it?
[23:51:02] iamlindoro: tare = zero a digital scale out, tear = to rip
[23:51:06] Nutsy: media player classic home theater
[23:51:14] Nutsy: for windows
[23:51:22] Nutsy: oh sorry
[23:51:25] Nutsy: MPC HT
[23:51:25] Nutsy: :p
[23:51:46] justinh: why not just stick to windows like a good lad?
[23:51:58] Nutsy: because i dont want to?
[23:52:10] justinh: oh well. good luck then
[23:52:11] iamlindoro: I have that same emotion with answering useless questions
[23:52:12] niklauz: Nutsy wins
[23:52:17] Nutsy: Look what is it with linux users who just want to be insulting?
[23:52:25] iamlindoro: hormonal imbalance
[23:52:33] iamlindoro: it gives us huge wangs and senseless aggression
[23:52:35] iamlindoro: sorry
[23:52:40] justinh: what is it with the majority of newbies who are allergic to looking stuff up?
[23:52:43] Striker: mmm violence
[23:52:59] Striker: justinh: half the time they really dont know what to be looking for
[23:53:02] Nutsy: i dont know comming to a myth user channle is a way of looking things up
[23:53:10] Striker: and many searches just reveal other newbies looking for the same thing with no answers
[23:53:12] iamlindoro: I'm mostly just trying to end up on as jams mentioned earlier
[23:53:15] CNLiberal: alright's this for an mplayer command for myth?
[23:53:16] CNLiberal: mplayer %s -ao alsa:device=iec958 -ao hwac3,hwdts,a52
[23:53:20] iamlindoro: and you don't get there by being nice to people, nosir
[23:53:23] niklauz: most people who don't know exactly what they are looking for come here for guidance, not answers
[23:53:30] Striker: CNLiberal: looks great, test it
[23:53:35] justinh: niklauz: that's where they fail :)
[23:53:39] CNLiberal: do i need a video output standard?
[23:53:40] iamlindoro: So we guide you to google and the wiki... you're welcome!
[23:53:42] CNLiberal: what about full screen?
[23:53:49] justinh: -fs
[23:53:51] iamlindoro: CNLiberal, -vo xv -fs
[23:53:57] CNLiberal: sweet
[23:53:59] CNLiberal: thanks
[23:54:13] Striker: cant you also use opengl for video output?
[23:54:23] iamlindoro: you can, but Xv is faster
[23:54:28] CNLiberal: you can, but doesn't that only work well for compiz?
[23:54:41] Striker: that's one thing i was wondering
[23:54:48] CNLiberal: i'm not sure about that though
[23:54:50] niklauz: iamlindoro: thats fine w/ me, it's ridiculous to make it seem like i'm allergic to google
[23:54:59] Striker: the mythtv configure options have ogl toggles, but they're off by default
[23:55:00] justinh: I ended up disabling compiz. useless crap. like I love the tops of windows vanishing
[23:55:04] iamlindoro: It's ridiculous to ask questions that make us believe so
[23:55:28] iamlindoro: Striker, as they should be, there are numerous problems with it and it's very experimental
[23:55:33] CNLiberal: will that also do all my w32codec AVIs?
[23:55:42] Striker: iamlindoro: ah, thanks...that's the kinda info i was looking for
[23:55:56] iamlindoro: CNLiberal, presuming you compiled mplayer with w32codecs and you're on a 32 bit distro, yes
[23:55:58] niklauz: iamlindoro: i see, so you are the representative for the channel hah
[23:56:06] iamlindoro: yes, I'm the nice one.
[23:56:08] CNLiberal: oh hell i don't know?
[23:56:12] iamlindoro: a people person
[23:56:13] CNLiberal: mythbuntu
[23:56:13] CNLiberal: haha
[23:56:19] niklauz: iamlindoro: nice to meet you, jeez
[23:56:24] Striker: CNLiberal: safe to assume you're fine
[23:56:27] iamlindoro: CNLiberal, install the w32codecs package and you should be fine
[23:56:28] CNLiberal: sweet titties
[23:56:31] CNLiberal: i already did
[23:56:35] CNLiberal: it worked with xine
[23:56:42] iamlindoro: then you're good
[23:56:44] Striker: yeah, xine just uses mplayer's w32codecs
[23:56:47] CNLiberal: but i didn't know if it'd "just work" with mplayer like xine
[23:56:50] CNLiberal: sweet
[23:57:08] Striker: most people dont know that ;P
[23:57:36] CNLiberal: ha
[23:57:44] iamlindoro: Most people don't know most things
[23:57:48] iamlindoro: hang around, you'll see
[23:57:49] CNLiberal: now i know...and i once heard that "Knowing is half the battle"
[23:57:56] Striker: oh, i dont need to hang around for that
[23:57:56] ** justinh sets another person who sent him an unsolicited /msg to ignore **
[23:58:11] CNLiberal: i'm in the Computer Networking field...i know that "users" are dumb as fuck
[23:58:14] Striker: i help develop Lunar Linux, we get our fair share of people like that
[23:58:16] iamlindoro: justinh, did it start with "What's the deal with that iamlindoro, anyway?"  ;)
[23:58:22] niklauz: btw Nutsy, it's not linux-users, it's really more of an irc thing
[23:58:23] Nutsy: oh ffs i just wanted to know if you where talking to me...
[23:58:29] justinh: you wish
[23:58:33] Nutsy: im not new to irc thanks
[23:58:46] Nutsy: then who the hell where you talking to about opengl video rendering
[23:59:57] iamlindoro: here we see that reading has failed us once more
