Franky_the_Pieri dont know how to kill modprobe process...00:00
DaveMorrisps -ef | grep modprobe00:02
DaveMorrisit'll return some numbers00:02
DaveMorristake the 1st number and use that in sudo kill -9 <number goes here>00:03
DaveMorrisdon't bother doing the last one since that process has already finshed (it was the grep one)00:03
Franky_the_Pieri killed it, and then recheck, and it is still there:00:04
Franky_the_Pierroot 7238 1 0 18:56 ? 00:00:00 modprobe -k lirc_i2c00:04
DaveMorristry killing it again00:05
Franky_the_Pierhmm, it doesnt get killed!00:05
DaveMorrisrebooting the machine will kill it ;)00:06
Franky_the_Pierok, back in a couples mins then!00:06

Franky_the_Pierok, now rebooted,and modprobe is dead00:10
Franky_the_Piershould i retry the reconfig again now?00:11
Franky_the_Pierok, now it did this:00:13
Franky_the_PierStopping remote daemons LIRC: fail00:13

Franky_the_Pierloading LIRC modules...  it is hung up there now00:13
superm1okay one more reboot... and try to manually unload those modules before you start00:14
Franky_the_Pier1 thing, this is mythbuntu, so mythtv starts all by itself...  is this a problem for troubleshooting00:15
superm1well it shouldn't be..00:15
superm1but you know what, it wont hurt to boot to recovery mode00:15
superm1if you can00:15
superm1that's before these services start00:15
superm1and such00:15
Franky_the_Pierok, now in recovery as root00:17
superm1just dpkg-reconfigure lirc00:17

superm1okay well then i say just modify that item DaveMorris was referring to automatically00:21
superm1if you dont know what event device you need00:21
superm1then do a cat /dev/input/eventX00:21
superm1and press buttons on the remote00:21
superm1when garbage is spit out, you found the right one00:21
superm1if nothing is spit out, then hit ctrl c and try another00:21
Franky_the_Pierok, rebooting00:22
Franky_the_Pierok, i have to go for an hour.  it was not event 0, but i got 4 more to go.  I'll be back later, if you are gone, well thanks a lot for the help, much appreciated.  If you are, I'll let you know how it goes.00:26
franky_the_pierri am here for 2 mins, none of the "eventx" worked.  event2 output garbage without me pressing anything on the remote.  but pressing a button did nothing.  IRW still not working.00:51
franky_the_pierrI will post the contect of my hardware.cong file, there is no driver...  maybe you see something funky in there too.  I'll be back in about 45 mins.00:52

superm1you are using pvr150 and i2c00:56

grytpypehello all... does anyone have a program for rebooting an SA4250 STB over Firewire, or has the operands needed to do so?01:01
franky_the_pierrsuperm1: i am back.  oh, i am sorry, i will use the pastebin in the future.    for pvr150 and i2c...  i dont know what i2c is, it was there right from install, i touched nothing.  I will change all the modules be lirc_dev and lirc_pvr150.  Do i do this inside the hardware.conf file?01:18
franky_the_pierrok, now what, do i redo the event0 to 5 again?01:19
superm1well make sure that only lirc_pvr150 is loaded01:19
superm1not lirc_i2c01:19
superm1if both are loaded, reboot01:20
superm1its the easiest to get around this01:20
franky_the_pierrok, reboot i guess should accomplish this?01:20
franky_the_pierrsuperm1: ha, no luck,  still none of the event0 to 5 worked :-(  but now there is a file "lircd" under /dev which was not there previously01:32
superm1franky_the_pierr, check dmesg01:32
superm1for lirc_pvr150 you might be needing some firmware01:33
superm1that we never automated01:33
franky_the_pierrwo, there is a very long output to this.  want me to put in pastebin?01:34
superm1yes pastebin01:34
superm1look for relevant to lirc stuff though01:34
superm1maybe dmesg  | grep lirc01:34

superm1that's it?01:35
superm1oh no devices found :)01:36
superm1that means your card might not be seated correctly01:36
franky_the_pierroh?  but i can watch tv01:36
superm1or your card doesn't support blasting / receiving (which i'd doubt if you have a remote ;))01:36
superm1right but, if one or two of the pins on the pci bus aren't making contact01:36
superm1this can happen01:36
franky_the_pierrholey fuck, ok, i will reseat it01:36
franky_the_pierrwill shut down now for it01:37
Franky_the_Pieri will put it in a different slot, will that cause problems?01:38
Franky_the_Pieroh man, the grep is the same as before01:46
Franky_the_Pieri will attempt a reconfigure now01:47
superm1you sure the hw isn't bad?01:49
Franky_the_Pierstopping remote control daemon LIRC fail still01:49
Franky_the_Piergrep show the same, except now it shows it 3 times in a row01:49
Franky_the_Pieri cant be sure, but i just bought the card brand new01:49
superm1well if these modules are being loaded w/o functioning hw, i'd be surprised if everything was clean :)01:49
Franky_the_Pieri could put it in a windows mchine to test it :-(((01:50
superm1wont hurt at this point01:51
Franky_the_Piercan i show you my hardware.conf before trying that though?01:51
Franky_the_Pierin case i missed something01:51
superm1which pastebinis that ?01:55
superm1full url?01:55
MythbuntuGuest12Why is it that when I try to play a video I get audio of the video, but the screen just stays at "loading .... {filename.whatever}" ?01:57
superm1depends what you external player is set to01:57
superm1and if you are using one01:58
superm1Franky_the_Pier, yeah that looks sane01:58
Franky_the_Pierok, i guess last thing is prove the hardware is good then01:58
MythbuntuGuest12where do I check/change my player settings then?01:59
KillerKiwi2005 /join #ubuntu-doc02:00
Franky_the_Piersuperm1: I really appreciate al your help.  I will put the card in winblows tomorrow to see if it's broken, with original hauppauge software, it should work.  If it is good... you will see me here again in a couple of days!  Cheers.02:00
superm1no prob.  cya Franky_the_Pier02:01
superm1MythbuntuGuest12, look in your media settings02:01
superm1KillerKiwi2005, ?02:02
KillerKiwi2005sorry wrong window ;)02:02
KillerKiwi2005superm1: have you tried to get a remote working with any games yet?02:03
superm1i did ages ago02:03
superm1but decided it wasn't worth it02:03
superm1i use my wii for games and my pc for tv and mv tv for pc02:03
KillerKiwi2005yeah... i wrtoe a small script to catch button pushs etc... but the input seems to freeze.. its not responsive enough02:04
superm1ah i see02:04
superm1would you consider trying to resubmit your udev rules ideas back upstream to udev?02:04
superm1keescook, made an attempt at one point to get things changed02:04
superm1but they weren't receptive to his ideas02:04
KillerKiwi2005superm1: I could there is a bug makred as wishlist in launchpad02:05
superm1KillerKiwi2005, yeah that's how i recognized your name :)02:05
KillerKiwi2005it drove me crazy when I came up against it02:05
superm1well until upstream udev agrees to put something in place we can't just go dropping them in our package02:05
superm1that's why its wishlist against our package right now02:06
keescookthe fixes, unfortunately, need to be plumbed through the v4l drivers02:06
superm1ahh that's what it was :)02:06
superm1hi keescook02:06
keescookheya superm1 :)02:06
keescookI wish I had some time for it -- drives me crazy too.  :)02:06
KillerKiwi2005what needs changing in v4l cant it just lock it down with udev for all video devices?02:07
keescookKillerKiwi2005: let me find the thread, one second02:07
KillerKiwi2005its just crazy the way it is at the moment..02:07
keescookKillerKiwi2005: here's the start: http://marc.info/?l=linux-hotplug-devel&m=118591152718294&w=202:09
keescookKillerKiwi2005: ah, here's a better thread-view02:11
KillerKiwi2005ugg it gets painful02:19
KillerKiwi2005ok so its a problem in v4l that device drivers do not return enough information ?02:23
KillerKiwi2005keescook: ^02:24
keescookKillerKiwi2005: that's correct.  Kay's patch to v4l is probably the best starting point, but I hadn't had time to try it yet02:24
KillerKiwi2005ok so there might be a fix in a years time ;)02:25
* KillerKiwi2005 wondars how no one noticed the problem for so long02:26
keescookit's not that no one noticed the problem -- people just write a udev rule, and ignore it.  :P02:26
KillerKiwi2005so what does mythbuntu do about things like this ... do you have a mythbuntu-hacks package or some thing ?02:27
KillerKiwi2005I mean while your waiting for the "proper" fix02:28
a1fa_i am loving this vnc thing02:59
a1fa_i shoud've done that long time ago02:59
a1fa_i just never run frontend inside of a window manager02:59
MunchkinguyDoes Mythbuntu support the Shuttle SD02XD?03:00
MunchkinguySoulBlade, are you a mythbutu expert?03:09
Munchkinguywasikevin, do you know anything about hardware support?03:17
wasikevinMunchkinguy, don't really understand your question.  Can yo tell me more about your question?03:18
MunchkinguyI'm wondering if Mythbuntu supports the Shuttle SD02XD03:19
MunchkinguySpecs: http://global.shuttle.com/servlets/download?file_id=311903:20
SoulBladegod no03:24
SoulBladeim no expert that is03:24
MunchkinguyAny reccomendations for a MythBox, then?03:27
franky_the_pierrsuperm1: i am back.  I have checked HD with winblows, all is working perfectly... :-(  means something funky is happening with my setup i guess, it is a common card though...  can we check into it further?03:34
SoulBladewell they like hauppauge tuners03:38
SoulBladedo a wikipedia on mythtv and then check out ivtv - maybe that card on the shuttle is supported03:38
MunchkinguyAlright. Thanks03:48
SoulBladeah so close to working... got everything but sound now04:03
SoulBladeand mplayer can play /dev/video0 w/ sound04:03
SoulBladeso... close..04:03
hti_pr1hey guys im having trouble with mythweb and streaming asx04:45
hti_pr1I use totem to play the stream, and it freezes after authenticating04:46
robbysmithhello, anyone ever use a frontend to connect to mythbutu backend?06:37
tgm4883_laptoprobbysmith, no, i just like to record content.  I never watch it06:38
robbysmithanyone use a frontend at all?06:39
tgm4883_laptopyea i can connect a frontend to a backend.  What seems to be the trouble06:39
robbysmithit seems that the backend is not ready to accept a connection, keep getting failed' when doing the sql test06:40
robbysmithhow can i verify that the backend is ready to accept connections?06:40
robbysmithmaybee i am wrong to assume that there can be multiple frontends?06:41
tgm4883_laptoprobbysmith, did you enable the mysql service on the backend?06:41
tgm4883_laptopin MCC06:41
robbysmithi used to be able to see a checkbox for it in services06:42
robbysmithjust installed and updated 140 some packages and its not there any more, ill see if theres anything similar...06:42
tgm4883_laptopit should be an enable/disable drop box06:43
tgm4883_laptopis this hardy or gutsy?06:43
robbysmiththeres now 3 databse services06:43
robbysmiththey are all checked06:43
robbysmithrunning i assumed06:43
tgm4883_laptopwhat program are you looking in?06:44
robbysmiththey are all "data storage system" sql services06:44
robbysmithmythbuntu 8.04beta backend amd64 (updated)06:44
tgm4883_laptopdid you open mythbuntu-control-centre06:45
tgm4883_laptopare the frontend and backend on the same machine or different machines?06:45
robbysmithok, knew i saw that somewhere,06:45
robbysmiththe service is enabled06:45
robbysmithboth plus i am trying to get an additional frontend to work06:46
robbysmithis this even possible?06:46
tgm4883_laptopso does the one on the same machine connect?06:47
robbysmithhow can i make sure this service is enable on the interface?06:47
tgm4883_laptopnot only is this possible, it is what it was designed to do06:47
tgm4883_laptopdoes the frontend on the same machine connect to the backend?06:48
robbysmithnext to dropdown for service is says to make sure its enabled for the ethernet interface06:48
robbysmithyea works great, sometimes get an error "cant connect to backend" but reboot fixes06:48
tgm4883_laptopdo you have more than one network interface card on this machine?06:48
robbysmithno, just 1 physical06:49
robbysmithand 'lo'06:49
robbysmithcurrently the front/back is set to
robbysmithfor both adds06:49
robbysmithshould 1 be 127?06:50
tgm4883_laptopgo to the remote frontend machine, open terminal, then start the frontend06:50
robbysmithopen a command prompt on the remote frontend?06:51
robbysmithshould i worry that the mysql test fails?06:51
robbysmithand start anyway>?06:52
robbysmiththnks for this by the way06:53
robbysmithwife thanks you too!06:53
robbysmithi wouldnt have gotten this far without the alltruism that is this linux community06:54
robbysmithso right now im not sure what you want me to do,06:54
robbysmithi have the frontednd booted with a livecd06:54
tgm4883_laptoprobbysmith, is the backend getting a static ip or a dynamic ip?07:01
robbysmithi just congigured for a static ip by editing /etc/network/interfaces07:01
robbysmithcouldnt connect w/ dhcp either07:02
robbysmithstatic is goo, tested by unplugging cable and checkin ifconfig07:02
robbysmithgw is good, tested with google news07:04
tgm4883_laptopdo this07:05
tgm4883_laptopon the remote frontend, open a terminal07:05
robbysmithok brb07:06
robbysmithterminal open07:07
tgm4883_laptopsec i gotta look up the command07:07
tgm4883_laptopjust out of curiousity, what are you puting in mythbuntu-control-center for username, password, and host when doing the test?07:08
robbysmithyou mean what am i trying to login with on the remote frontend?07:09
robbysmithpass= blank07:09
robbysmithdbase name= mythtvconverg07:09
robbysmithserver = (backend)07:10
tgm4883_laptopmythconverg you mean?07:10
tgm4883_laptopand is the password really blank?07:10
robbysmithno theres nothing07:10
robbysmithpass =07:10
tgm4883_laptopok we need to get something from the backend first07:11
tgm4883_laptopon the backend, open up /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt07:11
robbysmithis this what you need...07:11
robbysmithok brb07:12
tgm4883_laptopwe need the password07:12
tgm4883_laptopDBPassword="your password here"07:12
robbysmithcan i add that line?07:12
tgm4883_laptopit should be in there07:12
tgm4883_laptopit might be at the bottom07:13
robbysmiththose are the only ones not remared out and i dont see the line you said07:13
robbysmithalso, should DBHostName=localhost?07:14
tgm4883_laptopthat should be ok07:14
robbysmithshoul i add a pass?07:14
tgm4883_laptopi'm a little concerned you don't have DBPassword=07:14
tgm4883_laptopno don't add pass07:14
tgm4883_laptopit wouldn't help here, and has to be added a different way07:15
robbysmithshould i log into mysql?07:15
tgm4883_laptopcan you search the file for Pass07:15
tgm4883_laptopjust to be sure07:15
robbysmithwow im an idiot07:16
robbysmithit is at the bottom07:16
robbysmithok i see it07:16
robbysmithill try to login with this inf...07:16
robbysmith:) :) :)07:19
robbysmithvideo anyway07:19
robbysmithno sound watching tv?07:19
tgm4883_laptopsounds like a hardware issue, drivers or something07:20
tgm4883_laptopwhat hardware?07:20
robbysmithso i need a diff tuner for each frontend?07:20
robbysmithi started the frontend on the backend and it switched to my hd tuner07:20
tgm4883_laptopdo you have any sound?07:20
robbysmithill restart front/back then retry remote front brb...07:21
robbysmithi think the sound prob is a driver issue on the remote frontend, no biggie i got spares that are compatible07:23
robbysmithbut now i got reverse tuners,07:24
robbysmithstarted front/back and it went to my default (analog) tuner07:24
robbysmithwent to remote and started it, and it went to my hd tuner07:24
robbysmithlooks like hd homerun dont work over 802.1g very well either07:25
tgm4883_laptopyea HD over wifi is too slow07:25
robbysmithnothing a cable cant fix07:25
robbysmiththis is sweet07:26
robbysmithyour the shit07:26
robbysmithi been racking my brain all weekend trying to get this going07:26
robbysmiththank you thank you thank you!07:27
robbysmith:) :) :)07:27
robbysmithi am mythically converged finally!07:27
robbysmithnow i just got to get it to see my nas07:27
robbysmithbut i think i can figure that out07:27
robbysmithdo you have yours pointing to external storage?07:28
tgm4883_laptopdepending on the NAS, you may have to either mount via NFS or CIFS07:28
robbysmithwas it hard to get going?07:28
robbysmithi got freenas and 3 500s rin raid507:29
robbysmithbout 900gb of storage07:29
robbysmithmade it usb so i could eventually add 127 drives :)07:29
robbysmithya right07:29
robbysmith3s good for now though07:29
robbysmithwhat nas you use?07:29
tgm4883_laptopI actually have most my storage in a seperate fileserver07:30
tgm4883_laptopmounted via NFS07:30
robbysmithi have that option in freenas, do you recommend that over samba shares?07:30
tgm4883_laptopI prefer NFS to SMBFS, but I haven't used the newer CIFS07:31
robbysmithneed to get a cifs share for my wrt54g maybee ill go that route07:32
robbysmiththanks again for your help man07:32
hti_pr1anyone in here have experience capturing multiple hardware encoded streams simultaneously16:10
baggar11hti_pr1 I do17:46
hti_pr1any issues with it17:47
hti_pr1hd access times?  I assume resource usage is pretty low considering they are hardware encoders17:48
baggar11yeah, no problems, work great17:49
hti_pr1what kind of hard drives do you run and how many simultaneous streams have you been able to record17:49
baggar11Right now, I've only got a 40gb hd, I do mostly OTA HD recording, and I've only got 2 cards17:50
baggar11so the most I've recorded at once is 2 HD streams17:50
baggar11and no problems17:50
