=== MythbuntuGuest92 is now known as Spanky0521
Spanky0521good evening, i was wondering if someone could answer a question00:08
Spanky0521i have setup my storage directories and they are mounted, mythtv user and group has read write access to them.  however in the backend setup when i go to exit, it says it can't create a test file and asks if the directory is writeable00:09
Spanky0521what did i miss?00:09
Spanky0521i got it all fixed....fat fingered the directory permissions00:14

TazgodXim too tired to be working on this still05:56
rhpot1991check your perms06:00
TazgodXwhat does it have to be?06:00
rhpot1991well all the other mythtv folders are 277506:00
rhpot1991with mythtv:mythtv as the owner06:00
Wy|laptopsure, but a 2ghz A64x2 should be able to handle them, no?06:01
TazgodXwell, i can write to it from within myth, but in mythweb it doesn't save the images when i browse to one, and when i connect via samba and can't manually upload to that folder. i can upload to the regular videos folder06:01
* Wy|laptop ponders reinstalling windows on the htpc06:01
rhpot1991Wy|laptop: I would *think* you should be able to play them back06:02

MythbuntuGuest96hello, folks07:05
MythbuntuGuest96running mythbuntu 8.04 here; is there a way to disable the delete-recording confirmation prompts?07:06
MythbuntuGuest96i find i'm almost always certain i want to delete something, but if i make a mistake, can always go to the deleted recordings group to recover.07:07
MythbuntuGuest96no need for the extra button presses to select "yes, i'm sure i want to delete", and enter the choice07:08
TazgodXhmm, so i have mythweb set up so i can edit info for videos i upload now. and i have it so i can upload images for videos. and it shows up in mythweb correctly, and it shows the image in video manager, but i can't see it when i browse videos.07:25
=== _taz_ is now known as TazgodX
TazgodXfound why i can't get my images to show up in Myth. when i upload over the net with mythweb an image for my video its permissions are screwed up. my user can't even access it.08:00

immensewokHas anyone had any luck getting a channel changing script to work under Hardy? I've got the Motorola DCT700 (Comcast) STB working from the command line (irsend ...) but not from a script. Its making it impossible to record anything.20:38
tgm4883immensewok, works here on hardy amd64 and a directv box via usb-serial20:44
immensewokI'm using a pentium 4 3GHz and a CommandIR blaster. I'm also using the same python script I used under Fiesty. Where did you get your script?20:46
tgm4883immensewok, http://www.pdp8.net/directv/directv.shtml  Version 1.921:04
iamlindoro__that's not going to get him very far w/ his Motorola box21:07
immensewoktrue but I'll take a look when I get home21:07
immensewokMy issue is, things were working perfectly under Fiesty but the upgrade hosed a ton of stuff. I managed to get everything back except the channel change script (and as I said the blaster works) bit I don't know enough Python to start messing with the script.21:09
tgm4883iamlindoro_, no it wont21:09
tgm4883just FYI21:10
tgm4883mine also doesn't change via IR21:10
tgm4883so if you dig though that script you might find non IR related stuff that could be confusing21:10
tgm4883I haven't looked into the script lately21:10
iamlindoro__immensewok, Multiple options here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Motorola_DCT700_Channel_Change_Script21:10
tgm4883immensewok, is that a digital cable box?21:11
immensewokthose are the scripts i'm talking about. i should have been clearer21:11
iamlindoro__Although if neither work a channel change script need only be four or so lines, pretty simple to cook up21:11
iamlindoro__tgm4883, It's moto's lowest end SD cable box21:11
immensewoktgm4883, yes its a digital box. the link above has the exact picture21:11
iamlindoro__It can be as simple as that, and as you say irsend works, no reason that script shouldn't since that's all it uses21:12
tgm4883immensewok, what link?21:12
iamlindoro__change REMOTE_NAME to be the DCT700's remote name in lircd.conf, change "select" to whatever you call your "OK" or "select" key in lircd.conf, and it should work fine21:12
immensewoki meant https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Motorola_DCT700_Channel_Change_Script21:13
tgm4883ah I see it now21:13
tgm4883I'm guessing no working firewire on that box21:13
immensewokiamlindoro__ thank you. i'm at work so i can't test anything but you've given me something new to mess with21:13
iamlindoro__no firewire period, coaxial and composite are the outs21:13
* tgm4883 has to run21:14
tgm4883immensewok, can you test the script from the command line?21:15
tgm4883hopefully if you get any errors we can help you with them21:15
immensewoktgm, that's a good point. i've been running myth and not changing channels but i never bothered to run the script directly and never got any output. seems like that should've been the first thing to try21:16
tgm4883yea thats what I did21:16
tgm4883you should just be able to do21:16
tgm4883./scriptname channelnum21:17
immensewokok, now i want to ditch work and try some stuff. the boss is out of town so its ok, right?21:17
immensewokthanks tgm 4883 and iamlindoro_, i'm not stuck anymore.21:20
