tgm4883then enable libdvdcss201:23
MythbuntuGuest14ok i have a check box for enable prop codec support but the boxes below are greyed out01:25
tgm4883did you click enable medibuntu?01:25
MythbuntuGuest14umm hold on it is doing something01:25
MythbuntuGuest14downloading packages01:26
MythbuntuGuest14uk about to scoore01:26
MythbuntuGuest14uk scoressssssssssssssssssss01:28
MythbuntuGuest14ok now i have the options01:29
MythbuntuGuest14ffmpeg is checked01:30
MythbuntuGuest14do i check the other 201:30
tgm4883ok, now you should be able to install libdvdcss201:30
MythbuntuGuest14w32codecs also?01:30
tgm4883if you want, but it shouldn't be needed for dvd playback01:30
tgm4883for divx, xvid, etc probably01:30
MythbuntuGuest14ok it is installing packages01:31
MythbuntuGuest14ok, that installed easy. i am now installing w32codecs01:46
tgm4883you could have installed both at the same time01:46
MythbuntuGuest14i have a orange star should i install updates from here?01:48
MythbuntuGuest14or do i have to quit?01:49
=== katie- [n=katilici@EASTCAMPUS-THREE-FIFTY-THREE.MIT.EDU] has joined #ubuntu-mythtv
MythbuntuGuest14ok i am installing updates from here01:51
MythbuntuGuest14i am hoping this also corrects my 7 wired connection icons01:52
tgm4883i think theres another fix for that.  You're not getting any more are you?01:52
MythbuntuGuest14not sure. i will check. after i reboot01:53
katie-hey, simple question, whats the best way to reinstall mythbuntu?  booting from the install disc, "install" and "start mythbuntu" are the same option, how can I start the installer instead of booting from the (broken) installation?01:55
tgm4883katie-, is your computer set to boot from CD first?01:55
katie-well, it isn't but it can be, I just go to the boot menu and tell it to load the cd01:56
tgm4883well if you tell it to boot from cd, then just install it like you did the first time right over the existing installation01:57
tgm4883just make sure you tell it to format the partition01:57
katie-i guess the issue is the installer assumes that if you have mythtv, of course you'd rather boot from it and not install it again, but i accidentally killed something during installation, so it doesn't work right01:57
katie-the option on the menu is "Install or Start mythbuntu"01:57
tgm4883well thats because the live cd can be used as a frontend.  You should be able to install from that.01:58
katie-or maybe I'm wrong, but it seems like I'm doing what I did to install it, and it just boots01:58
tgm4883do you see grub come up at all?01:59
katie-no actually, i think thats part of the problem, the install stopped before grub started02:00
tgm4883well thats good02:00
tgm4883because if you tell it to boot from cd, then you shouldn't see grub02:00
katie-just booting from disc with no cd, i get something like no operating system found02:00
tgm4883ok, then it is definetly booting from disk02:01
tgm4883if without disk it cannot get to the desktop02:01
tgm4883AFAIK, there is no code that changes between install and live.  It's the same environment02:01
tgm4883is this the RC or an earlier CD?02:02
katie-if rc = the one out yesterday, then its that!02:03

MythbuntuGuest51G'Day all, i've just booted a mythbuntu 7.10 rom to try mythbuntu for the first time. When I pick "Start or Install" or "Start in safe graphics", after a short while, the screen freezes at the mythbuntu logo with the purple bar going back and forth. Any ideas?02:50
therethinkerhow long was it going back and forth, and what are the approx system specs?02:50
MythbuntuGuest51maybe 20-30 sec02:51
MythbuntuGuest51its not a brilliant spec... 1.7ghz02:51
therethinkerhow long was it going back and forth?02:51
MythbuntuGuest51i think 380mb ram ... bit low i know02:51
MythbuntuGuest51i can time it if you like... about 20-30 sec i think02:52
dannyboy79_anyone use automysqlbackup that can help me? ity's not running from cron.daily?02:52
therethinkerWait, but how long did you leave it before you considered it frozen?02:52
therethinker380MB is a bit on the "edge" for the live CD02:53
therethinkernot exact time, but like 4 minutes, or an hour?02:53
MythbuntuGuest51about 10min... caps, scroll etc stopped working and it needed a hard reset02:53
MythbuntuGuest51just rebooted02:53
therethinkerHm... I'll test it out with those specs02:53
MythbuntuGuest51ill check timing02:53
therethinkerI don't need timing, I just wanted to know approx02:54
MythbuntuGuest51like i said.... 20-30 sec02:54
therethinkerGive me 20 minutes to get the iso ;-)02:54
dannyboy79_do scripts in cron.daily need to be owned by rot?02:54
dannyboy79_root to run?02:54
therethinkerI think...02:54
MythbuntuGuest51like i said.... 20-30 sec from when i select "Start or Install"02:56
therethinker(what kind of mythbuntu dev am I, that doesn't have the ISO!? :P)02:56
therethinkerYeah, that's fine. I know I've thought it locked up, and I gave ti some time02:56
therethinkerIts not your fault :P02:56
therethinkerI should have gotten it by now02:56
MythbuntuGuest51that was meant to be its 1min 20sec from hitting "Start or Install"02:57
MythbuntuGuest51is it possibly a driver issue at that stage?02:57
therethinkerI don't think so, SGM would have done it02:58
therethinkerand you would have gotten an error02:58
therethinkerI'm 90% sure it's a spec thing02:58
MythbuntuGuest51ah ok... wierd02:58
MythbuntuGuest51i figured its a bit on the low spec side, so im not expecting miracles02:58
MythbuntuGuest51just thought it would be cool to try02:59
therethinkerNo, it should work02:59
MythbuntuGuest51i wouldnt really have expected a live distro to run in that sort of ram, but figured i might get the installer up...02:59
therethinkerIs there an option like "install from command line" or "alternate installer"03:00
therethinkeror "OEM install"?03:00
MythbuntuGuest51cant remember, will have to reset to check03:01
therethinkerTry that out, if it exists03:01
MythbuntuGuest51no menu option as such... there was accessibilty and options (F5 and F6 i think)03:02
MythbuntuGuest51just running a "Check CD for defects" as well03:03
MythbuntuGuest51the md5 of the iso was fine03:03
therethinkerYeah, but after burning03:03
MythbuntuGuest51and i verified the burn, but yeah, probably worth the check as well03:03
dannyboy79_is it safe to allow Feisty to upgrade mysql-server-5.003:06
therethinkerDon't know03:06
MythbuntuGuest51turns out hitting esc will exit the menu to a text mode03:08
MythbuntuGuest51any suggestions for what i can use a the "boot:" prompt though? hitting enter goes back to the purple bar03:09
MythbuntuGuest51bugger... gotta go. Will leave this window open just in case. Thanks for the help! Cheers.03:16

tgm4883380 should be fine03:46
tgm4883more than enough03:46

therethinkeris there a mythbuntu package?03:46
MitoTraninI was able to install on that with the beta03:46
tgm4883i've installed it in a 285MB VM03:46
MitoTranintherethinker: it's like the linux-source package03:47
MitoTraninit isn't really a package itself03:47
therethinkerbut, can someone say "sudo apt-get install mythbuntu" and install everything?03:47
MitoTraninbut it is a group of packages that is referenced by a single package03:47
MitoTraninI believe so03:47
therethinkersimilar to sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop?03:47
MitoTranin(that's what I'm told... haven't done it yet)03:47
therethinkeryou mean a meta-package?03:47

MitoTraninhaving some problems with my tuner:03:52
solarbabytgm4883: I've got myself a problem that I just can't seem to get through.. I've got the newest install of UbuntuMyth as of today.. Live to works great, but recordings say they are recording but just dont03:52
solarbabytgm4883: sure03:52
MitoTraninthis is a thumbnail of a recording... every recording or live-tv looks like this:  http://mitopia.net/files/1009_20071013043500.nuv.png03:53
MitoTraninI had this problem in feisty with it, but I thought that it was due to a graphics problem... but I'm getting the same thing in a VMware install03:53
MitoTranin(that pick is installed into a VMware VM)03:54
MitoTranin*pick = pic03:54
tgm4883and im back04:10
solarbabytgm4883: Heya04:11
tgm4883MitoTranin, what card04:12
tgm4883solarbaby, what is the permissions of your recordings dir04:12
solarbabytgm4883: im kinda stocking you cause im just desperate04:12
MitoTraninPlextor TV402U04:12
solarbabytgm4883: ;)04:12
tgm4883solarbaby, I guess thats ok.  I'm in a good mood cause LSU lost ;)04:12
tgm4883MitoTranin, can you record outside of mythtv?04:13
solarbabytgm4883: drwxrwsr-x 2 mythtv mythtv 4096 2007-10-13 18:46 recordings04:13
MitoTraninit's a specialized tuner that does on-the-fly divx encoding, MythTV is one of the few programs that are said can read it04:13
MitoTraninit's works in Windows perfectly04:13
MitoTraninbut I'm still trying to figure out how to get it's default player/recorder (gorecord) to use the tuner instead of a video input04:14
tgm4883that just proves that the card isn't broke.  I'm interested to make sure the correct drivers are loaded and such in linux04:14
solarbabytgm4883: with live tv working so well, i can't imagine why i can record anything.. hehe.. i double checked my settings.. and I even put my normal log in user into the mythtv group04:15
tgm4883solarbaby, this is a default mythbuntu install?04:15
solarbabytgm4883: yeah.. default and as recent as version 7.10rc04:16
solarbabytgm4883: my tv tuner card is a Hauppauge 350 using Svideo 1 input04:16
tgm4883solarbaby, is nothing being recorded, or is something being recorded and it not showing up in the recorded programs list04:17
solarbabytgm4883: It sez its recording anything I ask for..  but nothing records to the directory and nothing shows up in the frontend04:18
solarbabytgm4883: my recording directory is set to default..04:18
tgm4883so the recordings dir is empty then, hmm04:18
tgm4883what filesystem?04:18
solarbabytgm4883: yeah there is a lock file that keeps getting created there04:18
solarbabytgm4883: you know, im just not sure how do I check?04:18
tgm4883theres nothing like 3081_20071012233500.mpg in the dir?04:19
solarbabyno..  but if I watch live tv it leaves an mpeg04:19
tgm4883MitoTranin, did you set up the recording profiles for the device?04:21
solarbabyI googled it and checked over the most common things I have found recommendations for04:21
tgm4883MitoTranin, also, you may want to skim some of this as it may help https://blueprints.edge.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+spec/px-tv402u-support04:23
MitoTranintgm4883: I'm the one that made that blueprint04:24
MitoTraninand tgm4883, it depends on what you mean by the recording profile...04:25
tgm4883heh, so you've already seen it?04:25
MitoTraninare you talking about the device settings in myth-setup?04:25
MitoTraninheh, yeah04:25
tgm4883also, FYI, you would be the drafter of the blueprint04:25
MitoTraninand there's lots more, but I was waiting until I actually got it functional before I added the more part04:26
tgm4883recording profiles should be under settings, general settings in the frontend (I think)04:26
tgm4883solarbaby, is this a master backend?04:27
MitoTraninI just saw an old MythTV mailing list article that said they could only watch the channel that gorecord told it to tune to04:27
MitoTraninso I checked the options, and found how to get gorecord to tune into a channel, and got it to record, and it does, actually, record... kinda04:28
solarbabytgm4883: yes04:28
tgm4883MitoTranin, kinda?04:29
MitoTranintgm4883: just a sec...04:29
solarbabytgm4883: this keeps on reappearing in my recordings directory nfslockfile.lock04:29

mythbotWelcome to #Ubuntu-mythtv.  Please state your question or comment.04:30
solarbabytgm4883: I dont believe I did04:31
tgm4883solarbaby, anything in the backend log about it?04:31
solarbabytgm4883: I have to find the log.. never seen it04:31
solarbabytgm4883: I did change one thing04:32
solarbabyI changed the mysql password for the mythtv user to an old_password so its compatable with mysql 4.004:32
solarbabytgm4883: thanks04:32
tgm4883what do you mean old password?04:32
tgm4883any why do you need it to be compatible with mysql 4?04:32
solarbabytgm4883: I have a xbox script that can connect to mythtv and schedule recordings and stuff..  but its only compatable with mysql 4.0 so I had to make the password use older scheme04:33
tgm4883where did you change that?04:33
tgm4883also, how did you get mysql 4 installed?04:33
MitoTranintgm4883: this is what I mean by kinda:  http://mitopia.net/files/testing.avi04:34
solarbabytgm4883: mysql> UPDATE mysql.user SET Password = OLD_PASSWORD('secretmagicpasswd') WHERE User = 'live';04:34
MitoTraninthat is with the gorecord program that comes with the tuner driver04:35
solarbabytgm4883: I didn't install mysql to the backend04:35
solarbabytgm4883: i mean i didn't install mysql 4.0 to the backend I left it alone, I just told it to use an older password scheme for mythtv user04:35
tgm4883MitoTranin, you're going to have to help me. Whats the problem there04:35
MythbuntuGuest14ok, i tried the codec stuff and I still cant play dvd04:35
MitoTranindid you watch it?04:35
MitoTraninthe video quality is utterly terrible04:36
MitoTraninBUT: it does give video, and audio04:36
tgm4883solarbaby, did you tell the backend the new password?04:36
MitoTraninthe problem is that I still can't get MythTV to get even that much04:36
tgm4883MitoTranin, so just the quality is bad?04:36
solarbabytgm4883: the new password is the old password04:36
solarbabytgm4883: its just using a different scheme04:37

solarbabytgm4883: Thanks for your help05:19
tgm4883solarbaby, right about what?05:20
SuperNoobshould i retry with the beta05:20
solarbabytgm4883: I told it to scan for channels, now I have a bunch of channels in my list that I dont have.. they come up as unknowns so I need to get rid of all that crap now.. but at least it records05:20

tgm4883SuperNoob, do you have anything important that you don't want to lose on there?05:20
SuperNoobi will try to reinstall05:21
tgm4883get the new release candidate and install that05:21
tgm4883make sure to verify the iso, burn at a slow speed and verify the cd05:21
SuperNoobwhen i boot i now have option 26.12 and 26.14 or something05:21
solarbabySuperNoob: the new release candidate kicks ass05:22
solarbabySuperNoob: it was easy easy easy05:22
tgm4883I think something got screwed up in the install05:22
SuperNoobnow that i have a dvd is there a verstion for dvd05:22

tgm4883ideally a custom partition would be best05:24
tgm4883how big is your hard drive05:24
solarbabyI'd use the whole drive05:24
solarbabyand then i'd go to the store and buy a second drive05:24
solarbaby500 gig should do05:24
=== Wy|laptop swears at comcast
SuperNoobi do have a second but it smaller05:25
tgm4883I'd do 10GB for /  (ext3) 1GB swap and the rest xfs for mythtv05:25
solarbabybigger is better.. you'll soon agree05:25
tgm4883how big is the second05:25
solarbabyit'd set this one up just so you know how to do it.. then when you get your paycheck buy a bigger drive05:26
SuperNoobmaybe 10 or 20g it is old05:26
tgm4883what kind of tuners do you have?05:26

Wy|laptoptgm: yeah, sorta. about half of the OTA digital channels come through05:31
SuperNoobabc hd, espn hd, hbo hd,05:31
SuperNoobnbc hd, cbs, fox hd05:31
tgm4883espn hd you will only be able to get through the cable box, hbo you probably won't be able to get05:32

MitoTraninsolarbaby: I'm sure it would work... but I'm just not interested in using it that way05:37
MitoTraninit seems to work great05:37
solarbabyMitoTranin: sounds unstable05:37
tgm4883SuperNoob, if you can handle espn in sd and no hbo hd (you're not gonna get it HD anyway) getting a hd card is much more reliable than firewire05:37
MitoTranintgm4883: I've been writing it up as I go the whole time: http://wiki.mitopia.net/Plextor_PX-TV402U05:37
solarbabyI have the Plextor PX TV402U05:37
tgm4883SuperNoob, fyi you will need a bigger harddrive for hd, around 7GB/hr05:38
solarbabyI haven't used it with Myth Yet..  but as soon as I put myth on a second computer up it goes05:38
MitoTraninsolarbaby: oh?  I am just getting it working05:38
MitoTraninlike it sofar :005:38
MitoTraninwhat have you used it with/on/etc?05:38
solarbabyMitoTranin: I used it with GBPVR for a little while..  the quality isn't as good as the Hauppage Cards so I just shelfed it05:39
tgm4883Wy|laptop, there is also an oregon local team #ubuntu-oregon05:39
solarbabyMitoTranin: its a nice little device though..  I dont know if myth will support its divx encoder, i doubt it05:39

Wy|laptoptgm: *grin* not really partisan to any distro, really05:40
Wy|laptophell, I'm not really partisan to any platform05:40
tgm4883no your best bet is the lirc mailing list05:40
solarbabylirc is killing me05:40
MitoTraninsolarbaby: actually Myth supported it's divx almost right when it came out05:41
MitoTraninrecords to .nuv files though05:41
solarbabyif the myth team can make lirc as easy to use as myth is to install I might be so tempted to write a song about it05:41
solarbabyMitoTranin: wow I didn't know that.. Now Im happy05:42
SuperNoobok, i can will get a bigger harddrive. I will get a new computer. Why is it says my scientific atlanta 8300hd cable box only has 250mhz processor and 64 m of ram. I can record 2 hd shows while watching a recorded one? how fast of a comp do i need to do that?05:42
solarbabyMitoTranin: what the heck is a .nuv?05:42
Tarinupplevideo format05:43
solarbabyIm not sure what i'd do with that..  an avi would be fine05:43
MitoTraninsolarbaby: when setting up your encoder, one of the options it actually says "plextor TV402U etc"05:43
MitoTraninsomething like that at least05:43

gibMy ADS usb irblaster isn't working.   The proper config file was loaded at startup, I see that the usb driver was loaded, and I also see the lircd deamon running, but it's not working, so I assume lircd doesn't know what port to link to.  The blaster is registered on ttyUSB0.  How do I config  lircd to look there?  Or am I barking up the wrong tree, and it's a differnt issue altogether?05:49

tgm4883clarkey, is there anything in the backend log?05:51
solarbabytgm4883: what I dont understand is how I get rid of the extra channels, shouldn't it automaticly go with the channels I selected on the schedules direct site?05:51
tgm4883solarbaby, no, it only does that if you grab the channels from there not scanning05:51
tgm4883what you need to do is manually go through the channels and hit delete05:51
solarbabytgm4883: I originally grabbed the channels from there, and the problem seemed to be that I didn't scan05:52
solarbabytgm4883: I know I jumped the gun to figure out the answer before you were ready ;)05:52

tgm4883you can use nano06:07
clarkeytgm4883: the file doesnt even exist06:11

clarkeyyay found it06:13
clarkeyhttp://pastebin.ubuntu.com/884/   thats the contents of the file06:15
clarkeyas you can see theyre all three days old by the looks06:17
tgm4883when did it start not starting?06:17
tgm4883obviously 3 days ago, but what changed?06:18
clarkeyI think the problem is that mythbackend is just not set to run at startup, i didnt follow the whole setup properly from the cd at the end of the install when it asks you to configure the backend I ignored it because there were other steps (compiling tv card drivers) that I had to do first so maybe that caused it)06:18
tgm4883that shouldn't have caused it06:19
tgm4883can you start it from the command line?06:19
clarkeywell its a new install its probably never started on its own, I have been starting it up in a terminal06:19
clarkeyyeh and I dont see any obvious problems06:19
clarkeylike not being able to acess the record directory or something (Ive had that b4 as a problem with it not starting up) everything to me looks fine)06:20
clarkeyctrl + alt + left to get to a new workstation right click the desktop and select terminal then just punch in mythbackend06:21
tgm4883mythbackend should be started via06:21
tgm4883/etc/init.d/mythbackend start06:22
clarkeyis there some file I should add this to to get it to start06:22
clarkeyohh u saying thats what I should use in the terminal?06:23
tgm4883well thats how it should be started in the terminal06:24
tgm4883but that won't make it autostart06:24
clarkeyisnt there a file that I can stick it in to make it start on start-up06:24
MitoTraninyou make a symlink in one of the rc.d directories that points to that file06:26
tgm4883clarkey, whats the output of06:26
tgm4883 ls -l /etc/rc3.d/S20myth*06:26
MitoTraninin /etc/rc3.d/ there is a bunch of symlinks that run when the system is booted.. you just make sure that a symlink is in there06:26
clarkeylrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 24 2007-10-10 18:25 /etc/rc3.d/S20mythtv-backend -> ../init.d/mythtv-backend06:27
MitoTraninthey are started in alphabetical order, which is why they all have a number with them, so that they start in the right order06:27
MitoTranin(ie: you can't start mythtv-backend before you start mysql, so you make sure that mythtv-backend has a higher number, so it comes later alphabetically06:27
clarkeyoh ok so its a folder is it?06:28
clarkeyohh btw the backend is running from the terminal atm if that makes any difference to the output above06:28
tgm4883can you post a new pastebin with the new info from backend.log06:29
clarkeyits exactly the same06:29
gibI got it working :)  I had to add /dev/ttyUSB0 to /etc/lirc/hardware.conf06:29
gibIt would be nice if MythBuntu would set that up automatically, or at least give a message that it needs to be added manually.06:30
clarkeythere is still nothing in the mythbackend.log from within 2 days06:31
tgm4883gib, do you want to add a blueprint for that?06:31
gibWhen you install Mytbuntu and choose your ir device from the list, it gives the impression that it is going to be all the way set up.06:31

tgm4883a blueprint is a feature request06:31

gibSoftware channel /dev/video one works, but Harware MPEG2 /dev/video1 doesn't.06:38

clarkeyok done and so now I start the backend with: /etc/init.d/mythbackend start      ???06:48
clarkeyor just mythbackend command06:49
MitoTraninjust use the command06:49
MitoTraninso the output comes to your console/terminal06:49

solarbabyI was hoping to somehow tell MythTV I have a drive on my network with lots of tv shows, and then I was hoping to tell Myth to go online and download TV Show descriptions and movie info as well.. How should I go about this?07:02
MitoTraninare these recordings that have been recorded with MythTV previously, or?07:03
solarbabythey all have the scheme that TheTVDB.com uses07:03
solarbabycause my xbox's are setup to grab info like that.. I just need myth to do it too07:04

MitoTraninand I don't know if you'd be able to get the TV info imported or not... that's be a Q for someone smarter in MythTV than I07:04
=== tgm4883 sneaks in for a sec
solarbabyOk.. so I go into some menu and do an import, and then can I tell it that I'd like it to search from thetvdb.com?07:04
solarbabyWB tgm488307:05
tgm4883solarbaby, mythvideo will grab from imdb.com afaik07:05
solarbabyimdb is good for my movies, but its horrid for my tv shows07:05
tgm4883you will need to use mythvideo, as if you use the recordings dir you will get no info at all07:05
tgm4883I don't think there is a plugin for that though07:05
solarbabywow..  that is kinda amazing to me07:06
tgm4883well not really, downloading tv shows is kinda on the side of illegal07:06
tgm4883in the US anyway07:06
solarbabyhas nothing to do with downloading tv shows.. I compress them right from dvd07:06
tgm4883also illegal07:07
solarbabyI have wanky satalite here.. I can't download07:07
solarbabyits not illegal if you own them07:07
solarbabythen its considered a backup07:07
tgm4883anyway, you can do a search for unofficial plugins and if you find one that would work, let me know07:07
solarbabymy idea is to get all my TV shows onto 233 meg avi files..  so its all accessible with out the clutter of dvd's07:08
tgm4883actually (huge gray area since it's never been taken to court) it is still illegal07:08
tgm4883because you have to defeat the encryption in order to back it up07:08
tgm4883backing up is ok, but defeating encryption is not07:08
tgm4883you can thank the DMCA for that07:08
solarbabyI see..07:08
tgm4883write your congressman07:08
solarbabythats so uncool07:08
tgm4883i agree07:09
tgm4883write your congressman07:09
tgm4883they make decisions with the best info they have07:09
solarbabyIf I buy a Statue of Micky Mouse, and I wanna give him lipstick and a tatoo..  it's my choice..  but im defacing a disney character..  Jail Time07:09
tgm4883unfortunatly, they usually only get info from lobbiests07:09
tgm4883heh, i hadn't seen that07:10
solarbabyI made it up07:10
tgm4883well most people blame congress, but IMHO, congress doesn't usually get both sides of the story07:11

clarkeyMitoTranin: ok so it didnt work :(07:20
MitoTraninmy cousin just got woke up in the middle of the night by a pair of cops, *in* his bedroom, shining flashlights in his eyes07:20
MitoTraninsaid that his door was wide open, and was asking if he had heard any screaming07:20
MitoTraninthen when he said no, they asked for his name, and then left07:21
MitoTraninclarkey: can you post the results of this to pastebin?  tail -n 30 /var/log/mythtv/mythtvbackend.log07:21
clarkeyno such file or directory07:22
MitoTraninuh, let me check the name07:22
MitoTraninthat was from memory07:22
MitoTranintail -n 40 /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log07:23
clarkeyaha I see the problem it cant access the storage directory07:25
MitoTranin/storage/tv/nfslockfile.lock: Permission denied Unable to open lockfile! Be sure that '/storage/tv' exists and that both  the directory and that file are writeable by this user.07:25
clarkeyI set it so that everyone can read and write07:26
MitoTranineither that, or the lockfile already exists07:26
MitoTraninif the lockfile exists, delete it07:26
MitoTraninthen restart and try again07:26
clarkeybut why does it start without a hitch when Im logged in then?07:26
MitoTraninis that storage location on the network?07:27
MitoTraninthe fact that there's an nfs lockfile should mean that it's either shared on the network, or that it is mounted via the network07:28
MitoTraninif it's on the network, and you're mounting it, then the way that you are mounting it is probably the problem07:28
clarkeyno its a seperate xfs partition that took me ages to set up because of a stupid bug in ubiquity that doesnt let you create large partitions07:29
MitoTraninthis isn't mythbuntu?07:30
clarkeyist that the installer?07:30
MitoTraninok, so, anyways07:30
MitoTraninit's a local drive then07:30
clarkeyI think thats the name of the ubuntu installer07:30
clarkeyyea its local07:30
MitoTraninwhen it runs on boot, it's running as root07:31
MitoTraninnot your normal user07:31
MitoTraninwhen you run it manually, how are you running it?  as root, or your user?07:31
clarkeynormal user07:31
clarkeyshould I try it running as sudo?07:32
MitoTraninfirst thing I would try is to delete the lockfile and then restart07:32
MitoTraninsee what happens then07:32
MitoTraninif it still doesn't work, then run sudo su to get to a standard root console07:32
MitoTraninand then run it manually07:32

MythbuntuGuest68hi.. sorry im using the flash client, so i cant figure how to change my nic.  im stevetv.. recently joined the mythbuntu forum.  i dont like the mapping of my streamzap remote.  where are the config files located to remap it?08:09
MitoTraninjust say /nick MyNameHere08:10
=== MythbuntuGuest68 is now known as stevetv
stevetv:) .. danke.08:10
MitoTraninmy pleasure :)08:10
MitoTraninas for your other question... tgm4883, tgm4883_laptop, do you know?08:11
stevetvi presume lirc.conf and lircrc08:11
stevetvbut i was wondering if there was anything else im missing08:12
MitoTraninI would think so08:12
superm1stevetv, ~/.lircrc and ~/.mythtv/lircrc08:13
stevetvuhu.. there are two lircrc files?08:13
MitoTraninsuperm1: wasn't there a dynamic mappings button I heard someone talking about?08:13
superm1stevetv, the mapping is dynamically generated, so if you come up with a better mapping that you'd like to see us target instead, filing a bug on launchpad is the way to go08:13
superm1attaching the lircrc mapping you liked08:13
superm1stevetv, yeah ~/.lircrc for all !mythtv, and ~/.mythtv/lircrc for mythtv08:13
superm1MitoTranin, yeah they are all dynamically mapped08:14
superm1which makes it hard to have a "one size fits all" scenario08:14
stevetvforgive me, im unsure of what dynamic mapping means08:15
superm1stevetv, well foxbuntu and I wrote an app during this cycle called mythbuntu-lirc-generator08:15
superm1it goes through and takes all the buttons listed in /etc/lirc/lircd.conf08:15
superm1and attempts to assign them to logical commands supported by various apps08:15
stevetvoh right.  that was done to prevent the need for you to provide info for each of the remotes correcet?08:16
superm1which unfortunately i mean you can't have a perfect mapping for all remotes, but as long as a majority of them work with a majority of the buttons, you can at least get people up and running initially08:17
superm1and then the non-ideal mappings people find can be submitted into bug reports08:17
superm1and better adapted08:17
stevetvwell theres a time saver.  yes ive somewhere got my lircrc from my previous install.  i'll simply copy that over to the two locations you mentioned.  my previous lirc.conf is the same as the one created by mythbuntu08:19
superm1stevetv, okay cool.  please do file a bug against mythbuntu-lirc-generator attaching your old lircrc configs08:20
superm1we can try to better target the way you had it for the next cycle08:20

superm1stevetv, and thanks for helping keeping up with responding to posts on the forums, most appreciated to see users helping other users :)08:22
MitoTraninsuperm1: I have my plextor working with video now08:23
MitoTraninvery well even08:23
superm1MitoTranin, awesome!08:23
superm1MitoTranin, what'd you end up doing?08:23
MitoTraninnow my only problem is that I don't know if sound is working or not08:24
MitoTraninI still have to update my wiki, with the solution, but the basic was that I had to install the driver with the pre-patched driver for the 2.6.22 kernel08:24
MitoTraninwithout manually telling it to use udev08:25
superm1MitoTranin, as well as that usbfs workaround08:25
MitoTraninthen I had to enable the proc/bus thing08:25
superm1well overall not too difficult an experience then eh?08:25
MitoTraninand that there got it to where I was able to get this: http://mitopia.net/files/1009_20071013043500.nuv.png08:25
MitoTraninto fix that, I had to go into the recording profiles and set it to 640x48008:26
MitoTraninand now video works good08:26
MitoTraninmy only problem is that I'm not getting any sound08:26
superm1eh sound is overrated anyway08:27
MitoTraninbut I don't know if that's due to my windows codec not working properly (because I'm watching it via my windows machine)08:27
superm1there's some people on the forums complaining about their sound for ivtv stopping working too08:27
MitoTraninor if there is actually no sound08:27
superm1MitoTranin, oh actually08:27
superm1MitoTranin, when i used to stream to a windows box i ran into the same thing08:27
superm1because i didn't have an mpeg2 audio decoder08:27
superm1MitoTranin, play it with VLC on windows08:27
MitoTraninyeah, well, this is mpeg408:27
superm1or even better "Mythtv player"08:27

MitoTraninI just installed 3ivx for the codec08:28
MitoTraninand dsmyth for the player etc08:28
MitoTraninbut no sound08:28
superm1MitoTranin, well the nice thing about vlc, all codecs are integrated with the setup08:28
superm1MitoTranin, so there isn't a chance that you need to fuss trying to find other ones08:28
superm1for audio and such08:28
MitoTraninhadn't heard of mythtv player before08:29
superm1localgod13, well similar cards, but not the mx400 specfically08:29
MitoTraninpreviously I used tapeworm08:29
superm1MitoTranin, its a very cool app08:29
superm1MitoTranin, my roomate who dual boots uses it when in windows08:29
superm1someone on the forums pointed me at it08:29
localgod13i cant seem to get the video out running with that card08:29
MitoTraninyeah... I have feisty installed too, but I still find myself mainly in windows because my onboard sound is screwed up, so I use a pair of usb headphones08:30
superm1MitoTranin, http://www.sudu.dk/mythtvplayer/08:30
superm1MitoTranin, usb headphones should work fine in feisty still08:30
superm1i use a usb headset a lot on my feisty and gutsy boxes08:30
MitoTraninBUT, I just got a new pair of usb headphones ordered, which work in both windows and linux (the set I have now has zero linux support) so I should soon have sound in linux08:30
superm1mainly for skype though08:30
MitoTraninwhich means I should be able to use the linux-side of my dual boot a LOT more08:30
superm1MitoTranin, that's surprising to see a headset without usb support in linux08:30
superm1localgod13, what sort of issues are you having?08:31
MitoTraninPlantronics DSP-50008:31
MitoTraninawesome headset08:31
superm1localgod13, and what have you done so far08:31
MitoTraninvery very terrible linux support08:31
superm1MitoTranin, i have a plantronics 500 myself too08:31
MitoTraninthe only good way to get it to work in linux is to install skype08:31
superm1and use it daily08:31
MitoTraninI can get it to work partially, but it doesn't work well08:32
superm1er its a "Plantronics .Audio 500"08:32
superm1i'm not sure if its the same08:32
MitoTraninyeah, different beast08:32
superm1MitoTranin, how so?08:32
superm1what is diff with the dsp-500 and the .Audio 500?08:32
localgod13when i did that xserver went bye bye08:32
localgod13i just copy and pasted what he reccomended08:33
localgod13now i am going to try http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=48099108:33
MitoTraninthis is mine: http://www.plantronics.com/north_america/en_US/products/cat640035/cat1430032/prod44004408:34
MitoTraninthe .audio series is the new series08:34
superm1localgod13, actually this can all be handled via nvidia-settings08:38
superm1which is available once you have the nvidia proprietary driver installed08:38
superm1no use going through all this extra hassle hand editing files08:38
localgod13please tell me how08:38
superm1localgod13, open up mythbuntu-control-centre08:39
superm1and click on the proprietary drivers tab08:39
superm1there is a button right there for it08:39
MitoTraninsuperm1: I forgot to mention that there might be a bug with that08:39
superm1MitoTranin, ?08:39
superm1you do realize that we are in a hard freeze now, right?08:40
MitoTraninwhen I was still having troubles installing the beta, the first time I got it installed was without the proprietary drivers08:40
MitoTraninI installed it post-install via the mcc, but it didn't work right08:40
superm1which didn't?08:40
MitoTraninthe install08:40
localgod13i actaully have just ubuntu running right now08:40
MitoTraninafter it installed it, it wanted to restart, so it did08:40
superm1MitoTranin, via restricted-manager?08:40
localgod13the next step was going to be installing myth08:40
MitoTraninI installed it via the mcc08:41
superm1localgod13, gutsy or feisty?08:41
superm1MitoTranin, well so that calls restricted manager08:41
superm1MitoTranin, so if there are issues, they are with restricted manager not mcc08:41
MitoTraninyeah, well, still...08:41
MitoTraninthe system never booted into the gui again08:41
superm1localgod13, i'd really recommend that you go for a regular mythbuntu install08:41
superm1localgod13, which is gutsy based08:41
superm1the whole point is that it saves you all this hassle08:42
MitoTraninand since it was a fresh install, I spent a whole 10 minutes troubleshooting, and installed from scratch again, this time with the drivers installed during the install08:42
MitoTraninand it worked great08:42
localgod13damn i have already install fiesty x208:42
superm1localgod13, we released the release candidate two days ago, and final release it planned for within the next 1-2 weeks08:42
localgod13ok fine08:42
superm1localgod13, trust me, its worth the amount of time you will be saving by how much is automated for you :)08:42
MitoTraninvery very much worth it08:42
superm1MitoTranin, well also mind you BulletProofX is now active as of the RC08:43
superm1MitoTranin, so if things fail with a driver, BulletProofX kicks in08:43

localgod13ok i already got it08:45
localgod13u sure this is going to work with the old nvidia card?08:46
superm1localgod13, there are three varieties of drivers available during install08:47
superm1along with a list of which cards are supported for each.08:47
superm1you're probably within either nvidia_legacy or nvidia, you'll see during install08:47
localgod13im bettin legacy08:48
MitoTraninwhat card is it?08:48
MitoTraninif it's a geforce 2 - geforce 4, it'd be normal08:48
MitoTraninolder than that is legacy08:48
MitoTraninnewer is new08:48

MitoTraninsuperm1: where is the alsa config stuff in mythbuntu?08:50
MitoTraninI need to make sure which output port my soundcard is set to use08:50
superm1localgod13, like i said, you'll see during install which card to select08:50
MitoTraninit has an spdif out and standard out08:50
MitoTraninlocalgod13: for that you would probably want legacy08:50
superm1MitoTranin, there is an applet that you can add to your xfce panel, or alsamixer08:50
superm1command line08:50
MitoTraninwhat's the applet called, because I looked and didn't see it08:51
MitoTraninis there a reason it's not a default option under the settings menu?08:51
superm1MitoTranin, i was wondering that myself.08:52
superm1right click the panel08:52
superm1and there is a sound mixer option08:52
superm1to add08:52
MitoTraninadd to panel08:52
MitoTraninI didn't see it, I'll look again though08:52
MitoTraninvolume control is the only sound-related entry08:52
superm1that's it08:53
superm1add that08:53
superm1and then you can right click it from your panel08:53
superm1and you get a full out mixer08:53
MitoTraninah, k08:53
MitoTraninsounds a lot more simplistic08:53
MitoTraninI'll try it08:54
MitoTraninstill not quite what I was expecting, but I'll try it anyways...08:55
MitoTranintomorrow though08:56
MitoTranin(I just wanted to make sure that the system was set to use the spdif as the sound output, and not the analog sound jacks)08:56
MitoTraninI have to physically move the machine to connect it though08:56
stevetvlocalgod, ive used the tv out with that card.  sorry im a long way behind the conversation so it may not be relevent.08:56

stevetvas suggested, use the legacy drivers? im sorry ive got no idea whats been suggested so ill tell you everything i know08:57
localgod13anything else?08:58
stevetvyes, :) .. sorry. im smoking. hard to type too.  the legacy drivers will just work with that card.  from then youre only issue is configuring xorg.conf to do the tv out09:00
stevetvyoure using svideo correct?09:00
superm1localgod13, during mythbuntu installation, tv out is one of the questions that is asked09:01
superm1and it's configured for you so you wouldnt need to touch the file by hand, or via nvidia-settings even09:01
stevetvok.. yes superm1 is right.. with a fresh install, you would just need to select the legacy driver and select tv out.  (sorry i didnt read everything... are you doing something different from the standard mythbuntu install)?09:02
localgod13what are the system reqs for mythbuntu09:02

stevetvsuperm1 - locate lircrc is giving me four files.. not two. they are :/home/mythtv/.lircrc; /home/mythtv/.mythtv/lircrc; /home/steve/.lircrc; /home/steve/.mythtv/lircrc09:10
superm1stevetv, don't worry about the ones in /home/mythtv09:10
superm1you run things as the user 'steve'09:11
superm1those are just put there in case you ever wanted to switch over to running it as the 'mythtv' user09:11
stevetv:-) ... i knew that.09:11
solarbabyI really can't believe nobody has created a script that serached meta info from TheTVDB.com..  the lack of this script just seems wrong09:19
solarbabyit should be prety simple since TheTVDB.com doesn't depend on scraping..  they deal out their info just like zapt2it used too.. in database format I believe09:20
solarbabyI wish I could just take my script off the xbox and apply it to Myth09:21
stevetvsolarbaby.. there's on on gossamer09:21
solarbabyhow do I check that out?09:21
stevetvwait.. letme find the link09:22
solarbabystevetv: Thanks09:22
stevetvoh wait.. this is for the imdb.  it assigns metadata to all your video files in one batch rather than you needing to do it one by one.09:24
solarbabyI see09:24
solarbabyyeah..  I was just about to put a proper mythtv frontend on my xbox, but actually I think the xbox frontend is better still09:24
solarbabysince I have a little python script on the xbox that allows me to schedule recordings I'll be sticking with that, until a script like this can be made available09:25
stevetvso sorry.. it's not quie what you want.  what specifically are you looking for? (im just interested)09:25
solarbabyI'm glad to tell you09:25
stevetvoh .. i figured it out.  a scapper for guide data right?09:26
solarbabyI have lots of tv shows from my DVD archive..  they are all properly named like "Star Trek The Next Generation 1x01 Pilot.avi09:26
solarbabywhere talking nearly 20 TV shows.. all done up proper like that09:26
stevetvoh .. so i was wrong.  it's very much like the imdb.. but for tv shows?09:26
solarbabywell TheTVDB.com doesn't require a scraper.. they give their data out freely through ethical means, no scrapping necessary..  and thats where my xbox gets its TV show info, it also searched IMDB for movies09:27
solarbabyYup you got it09:27
solarbabyso my problem is I have it so good right now, the frontend to myth even as fantastic as it is, is still a tiny step downwards, but in a major way at the same time09:28
solarbabyas I've been searching google I've been reading other peoples frustration09:28
solarbabyI know it's just a matter of time..  the scripts are easy enough to copy for someone who knows how09:29
stevetvwell.. if you have the skills, maybe you could modify this http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/users/29178509:29
solarbabyI have no interest in gossamer  TheTVDB.com is awesome09:29
localgod13was i suppose to run the mythdatabase upon install?09:36
solarbabyyou can run the mythdatabase anytime.. as soon as your done with mythtvbackend it asks you if you want to run it09:37
localgod13should i?09:37
solarbabyonly if you signed up with schedules direct or whatever your using to get your data09:37
localgod13i mean i did i am just curios09:37
localgod13i didnt09:38
solarbabyyou should run it09:38
solarbabyits fun09:38
localgod13i dont plan on using it as a dvr i just want to use it like a vcr09:38
localgod13no record only playback09:39
solarbabythen you dont need the database info09:39
localgod13well i got it anyway09:39
solarbabydatabase gives you tv guide info09:39
solarbabyyou can't really run myth with out a database09:39
localgod13is that gonna be a problem?09:39
solarbabybut you dont have to download info from schedules direct if your not going to use it09:40
solarbabyI dont think its a problem09:40

tgm4883I believe so, have you tried?08:28

superNooboh dang. i am dumb08:31
superNoobthe 0 and the 9 at the bottom08:31
superNoobhow long does a 2hr movie take?08:32
tgm4883_laptopdepends on your hardware08:32
superNoobhow big are the movies?08:32
tgm4883_laptopI would say about 50% of the length of the movie08:32
tgm4883_laptopcould be less08:33
tgm4883_laptoptazgodx_, no there smaller than that08:33
tazgodx_i said "~"08:33
tgm4883_laptopcause it's only ripping the main movie08:33
superNoobi only have a 60g hard drive..08:33
tgm4883_laptopnot any extras08:33
tazgodx_i know08:33
tazgodx_but if you have a movie that has an extras disk seperate, they try to get a 4GB movie08:34
tazgodx_i would say its around 3, if you do a perfect rip. you can encode it to make it smaller tho08:34
tgm4883_laptopalthougth the movie could also be much larger08:37
tgm4883_laptopid say 3 - 7GB08:38

rob-ehey if i wanted to have a box with mythtv and use t as a small web server, what would you recommend doing?08:42
MythbuntuGuest40does anyone know how to force mythbuntu to use a specific sound mixer? for some reason i think its defaulting to a tv cards mixer instead of my sound card so i do not get any audio?08:43
tazgodx_web server? what are you hoping to host?08:43
rob-esome files for friends or whatever, nothing major08:43
tgm4883_laptopMythbuntuGuest40, you can set that up in settings > general settings08:43
tgm4883_laptoprob-e, /var/www08:44
tazgodx_in the setup there is an audio option08:44
tazgodx_rob-e: mythbuntu installed mythweb, which installs apache, so a server is basically set up for you08:44
tazgodx_as tgm4883_laptop says, put your HTML files in /var/www08:44
rob-eand then just give them my ip huh?08:45
MythbuntuGuest40i think its more of an ubuntu issue.  i can get it to work in a standard ubuntu install by using the appropriate control panel applet but this is not present when using mythbuntu?08:45
tazgodx_yeah, or get a dynamic ip08:45
rob-ei thought it would be hard08:45
tazgodx_you can go to like no-ip.com and sign up for a free dynamic ip like rob-e.no-ip.net08:45
tgm4883_laptopMythbuntuGuest40, you can tell mythtv which sound card to use08:46
tgm4883_laptopMythbuntuGuest40, you can also run alsamixer from the command line08:46
rob-eyoure a true mythbuster08:46
tazgodx_there is also a program on no-ip.com so it continually updates your ip for your dynamic link.08:47
MythbuntuGuest40cheers.  it appears each time i restart sometimes the audio works and other times it doesn't is this linux detecting things in different orders?08:47
tgm4883_laptoprob-e, you may need to do some setup on your router too08:47
tgm4883_laptopMythbuntuGuest40, what does uname -a output?08:47
superNoobok i think it ripped.. how i watch it?08:47
rob-eo, yes, open up some ports huh08:47
tgm4883_laptopsuperNoob, did you rip it in the frontend?08:48
rob-ecomeon no upnp?08:48
superNoobi think so08:48
tazgodx_port 80 is normal port for webhosting to forward to your PC08:48
superNoobimport dvd08:48
tgm4883_laptoprob-e, some routers don't like static ip addresses and upnp08:48

tgm4883_laptoprob-e, try port 80 first08:50
tgm4883_laptopsuperNoob, well your wont be able to use your eyes to look at the dvd, thats what dvd lasers are for.  Where are you looking in the frontend to try to play the already ripped dvd08:51
tazgodx_superNoob: go to utilities setup/video manager, and see if it lists your rip there08:51
tgm4883_laptopit lists it there?08:51
tgm4883_laptopthen go to myth video and see if it is there now08:51
tazgodx_ok, then it should show up in media library/watch videos08:51

tgm4883_laptopsuperNoob, does it play08:53
MythbuntuGuest40tgm4883, will give it a try - if i use alsamixer the 1st,2nd device is my tv cards the 3rd device is my actual sound card.  can i use alsamixer to change my default?08:54

tgm4883_laptopMythbuntuGuest40, im not sure, although you should be able to tell mythtv which card to use08:55
tazgodx_rob-e: just be carefull with your webserver, if someone goes to http://yourip/mythweb they can alter your video recordings.08:56
MythbuntuGuest40okay thanks. dist-upgrade finds no packages08:57
tgm4883_laptoprob-e, yes, you should add a password for mythweb08:57

therethinkerIs the ADSTech Mini Dual TV supported by Mythtv?09:14
MitoTraninugh... ok... so someone help me out with this09:15
MitoTraninmy video didn't look the greatest on my monitor, so I switched it from Qt to OpenGL09:15
MitoTraninnow the menu items don't show up, it's just the background09:16
MitoTraninso by memory I go through the menu's to the same location, and change it back to Qt09:16
MitoTraninit reloads, but it's still the same problem09:16
MitoTraninI restarted the system to give it a fresh start, and it's the same problem...09:16
MitoTraninI go back in to the same settings, and it's back to opengl09:16
MitoTraninanyone have any idea why 1) it's like this, and 2) why I can't change it back?09:17
tazgodx_anyone know if the mplayer plugin for firefox has hotkeys for fullscreen and play and pause?09:29

MitoTraninI switched from Qt to OpenGL today09:35
superm1MitoTranin, does your card support it?09:35
superm1didy ou install proprietary driver?09:36
MitoTraninwhen I did, all the menus are gone, and just the background shows09:36
MitoTraninI did install the proprietary driver09:36
MitoTraninand it's a geforce 4mx09:36
MitoTraninso it should support OpenGL09:36
superm1sounds like the driver isn't working then right now.09:36
superm1close out myth09:36
superm1and pull open a terminal09:36
superm1and type mythfrontend -O ThemePainter=qt09:36
superm1to start it with Qt once09:36
superm1go through and save it as Qt again09:37
superm1and then sort out your driver issues to find out why 3d isn't on09:37
MitoTraninwell, that's the actual bug part09:37
MitoTraninI got back to the menus via memory09:37
MitoTraningot back to the screen where I can choose Qt or opengl09:37
MitoTraninI changed it back, but it's still using opengl09:37
MitoTraninso I restarted the computer09:38
MitoTraninand the menus are still gone... I went back to the same screen, and it still says opengl in there09:38
superm1you must not have saved the setting09:38

superm1and make it all the way through those menus09:38
superm1you can't hit escape while in the appearance section09:38
superm1you have to hit enter through them all09:38
MitoTraninI hit enter all the way through09:38
MitoTranindoing it again though just for fun :)09:39
MitoTraninweird... that time it worked09:40
MitoTraninoh well09:40
MitoTraninanother quick Q, this one I could probably google but just haven't yet09:40
MitoTraninwhen I rebooted, hotplug didn't pickup my tuner right away, I had to disconnect it, reconnect it, then load the firmware manually09:41
MitoTraninany idea how to make sure that hotplug finds it and loads the firmware properly?09:41
superm1i'm not sure how its handled by hotplug09:42

solarbabysounds icky11:00
localgod11idea what could be happening11:00
solarbabyI've never had that problem11:00
localgod11i was told i need more ram11:00
solarbabyoh how much you got?11:00
solarbaby256 isn't enough..  384 might do it..  shrug...  Im using 512 and everything is real smooth11:01
localgod11naf still nhangs11:01
localgod11running memtest now11:01
solarbabystill even with 256 it should install with out those kind of problems..  but you might actually have bad ram.. that would do that11:01
solarbabyI'd take one of your ram chips out.. and try installing11:02
tgm4883256 is enough11:07
tgm4883localgod11, did you verify the ISO, burn the CD slow and verify the CD?11:07
