frozenskunk1Can someone give me a hand getting lirc to work with a command IR mini? It hasn't worked wince the upgrade to 8.04. I can see input using mode2 -m -d /dev/lirc1, but can never see anything using irw.  I've tried multiple hardware.conf and lircd.conf files.01:02
Tuv0kwhile palying regular sound you heard crackling?01:02
rhpot1991mostly music, and popping01:02
Tuv0kfrozenskunk1, I feel for you01:02
frozenskunk1others have this joy then?01:03
Tuv0kI just have had issues before with lirc and my remote01:03
Tuv0kbut I guess mythbuntu got it covered now01:03
Tuv0keven after a fresh kernel01:03
Tuv0kbut that was when I was running unstable01:04
Tuv0kHardy Alpha01:04
frozenskunk1I had gotten it working without too much trouble when I switched to the commandIR under 7.10, but when I upgraded to 8.04 it broke, and I STILL haven't gotten it working...01:04
frozenskunk1I've tried everything I can find and gone through all the steps on the commandIR troubleshooting section, but just can't get it going...01:05
Tuv0kand he logs off like that?01:10
frozenskunkSorry, router crashed, did I miss any ideas on my lirc issue?01:26
frozenskunkany ideas on where I might look for answers, other than the usual places? I've scoured them pretty well over the last 3 months...01:30
superm1frozenskunk, using the new driver?01:34
superm1or the old one?01:34
frozenskunknot sure, everything is up to date on update manager...01:34
frozenskunkhaw can a verify?01:34
=== Tuv0k is now known as darthanubis
superm1frozenskunk, well if you aren't intentionally using it, then you dont have it01:54
superm1i'm notsure how well the old style commandir is supported on it anyhow01:54
superm1so whats happening with yoru device though?01:54
superm1dont see anything on irw, so maybe try to re-record your lircd.conf for your remote01:54
frozenskunkbasically it hasn't worked since I upgraded to 8.04, i've tried several lircd.conf files from the internet which appear to be well supported, and I never had problems iwth that before ,I am using a hauppage A415 remote01:55
frozenskunkI can see input using mode2 -m -d /dev/lirc0, but nothing in irw.01:56
frozenskunkalthough since you mentioned the driver, I've been poking around looking at that, and when I check the syslog, I never see this: COMMANDIR USB device now attached to commandir001:57
frozenskunk Receiving on #1 Transmitting on #1 2 3 4, which according to a web page I found, I should01:57
superm1well so do try to record with irrecord02:14
superm1see if the lircd.conf that it spits out is anybetter02:14
frozenskunkok, i haven't done that yet, let me give it a shot02:15
frozenskunkany idea if I should chase down the syslog issue?02:25
frozenskunksuperm1: I tried to do an irrecord on a lircd.conf file I had downloaded to use with my remote, when i do 'irrecord testlirc' I get the following:03:16
frozenskunkirrecrod: could not get file information for /dev/lirc03:16
frozenskunkirrecord: default_init(): NO such file or directory03:16
frozenskunkirrecord: could not init hardware (lircd running ? --> close it, check permissions)03:16
superm1frozenskunk, you have to provide -d /dev/lirc003:17
superm1or similar03:17
ian_001i just enabled network control but when trying to connect to the machine over telnet i am getting connection refused, i checked iptables and it seems to have no rules installed, is there something i could be missing?03:19
frozenskunksuperm1: that got me started, thanks!03:20
ian_001sorry for the question, of cours ethe second i asked i solve dmy issue, i had changed the port and didnt realize i needed a reboot03:22
superm1ian_001, most people use SSH instead of telnet though03:23
superm1in an effort to be more secure03:23
ian_001ill be honest, im somewhat new to network control, if i use ssh does it become ssh->telnet ?03:27
ian_001or is ssh a replacement for telnet?03:28
defendguinits a secure replacement for telnet03:28
defendguintelnet = not encrypted03:28
ian_001ok, i wasnt sure if ssh was a wrapper around telnet03:29
defendguinafik its a completely different project03:29
hadsian_001: You mean network control in mythfrontend? If so you'll need to restart the frontend.03:31
hadsAnd you can't use ssh for that.03:31
hadsSSH is a replacement for telnet, but controlling mythfrontend via telnet is something different again.03:32
ian_001sadly i just tried connecting remotely and was unable to do it03:32
ian_001locally it works absolutely fine03:33
hadsYou mean on the frontend `telnet localhost 6546` ?03:33
superm1oh didnt realize you were trying to do remote control of mythfrontend via telnet03:34
superm1defendguin, you pung earlier?03:34
hadssuperm1: That's what I'm guessing03:34
ian_001ok, i had left the local connection open, closing that allowed the remote connection, i assumed multiple connections were allowed03:35
defendguinyeah i was reading some ubuntu forums and i saw a post of yours about how you were configuring your mouse and i thought you might be able to shed some light on something03:35

frozenskunksuperm1: I've tried to irrecord and it goes through the motions, but never saves any changes to the file I am running it on, I'm doing 'sudo irrecord -d /dev/lirc0 testlirc' and when I check test lirc after running there are no changes.03:53

dojehi all, I just installed mythbuntu 8.04 and the install failed during install packages select.  can I get back to that from the CLI now that it's booted up ?06:45
superm1doje, sure07:39
superm1you can look at the log in /var/log/syslog first though07:40
superm1and see if it tells you where went wrong07:40
superm1but the command is "ubiquity"07:40
superm1which should automatically choose the mythbuntu frontend07:40
dojeI have the log console here - "Couldn't find task mythbuntu-frontend"07:41

sebrockfrom where is the x11vnc server started in 8.04? I need to change a option parameter14:57
superm1its started from the /usr/share/mythtv/session.sh i think15:54

superm1sebrock, ^15:54
ron_whats the trick to getting the audio output louder? i have tried 2 sound cards and now have a sb live16:21
tgm4883_laptopron_, you could try a couple things16:33
tgm4883_laptopfirst, have you increased the volume in alsamixer?16:33
tgm4883_laptopsecond, make sure mythtv volume is up16:33
tgm4883_laptoplast you could increase the volume that mythtv records shows at16:33
gregL<tgm4883_laptop how do you increase the volume that mythtv records at?16:35
tgm4883_laptopgregL, it's either in the recording profiles found in the frontend or it's tuner specific and found in mythtv-setup16:36
tgm4883_laptopdefault is 7016:36
tgm4883_laptopwhich i've found is good, but some tv's don't have very good speakers16:36
tgm4883_laptopthat only will increase the volume on the recordings though, so if you have trouble hearing dvd's too it wont help that16:37
gregLOk yeah i seen that..My dvb card is always low for some reason...16:37
gregLSometimes to the point that you really have to strain to hear...16:38
tgm4883_laptopthat you probably won't be able to fix16:38
tgm4883_laptopsorry, i always forget the disclaimer about preencoded content16:38
tgm4883_laptopeh, I'd look anyway though, just in case16:39
gregLI like the card, it's an air2pc and it work's well except for the sound.16:39
sebrocksuperm1, thanks17:08
sebrocksuperm1, sorry cant fint anything x11vnc in any script18:42
sebrocknervermind I found it18:54
Seeker`how do you setup mythfilldatabase to grab only the channels found by the tuner18:56
Seeker`if I have a nova-t 500, why is it that when I have something due to record and I am watching tuner 1, with nothing happening on tuner 2, it doesn't automatically start recording on tuner 2, and instead takes over tuner 1 for recording and leaves tuner 2 doing nothing19:58
zabbadappSeeker`: there is an option "minimize live-tv collision" or some such, which will pick recordings from the beginning of available tuners, and live-tv from the end of available tuners (if the have the same channels) ... it is not perfect, and live-tv may pick a currently recording tuner if multirec is enabled and if the default channel is available within that mux. Someone else may explain better, because I always20:53
zabbadapprecord a show to avoid any surprises if more than one recording starts.20:53
tgm4883_laptopSeeker`, zabbadapp another solution that exists right next to that option is to allow live tv to move scheduled recordings to different tuners.21:47
dschananyone here?22:13
dschanhi! great!22:14
dschancan you help me with my mythbuntu setup?22:14
zabbadappwhat is the problem22:14
dschangot a new mboard today and try to set it up from the scratch. however, channelscan does not work (dvb-t germany ruhrgebiet)22:15
dschan...it DID work with a former installation...22:16
dschanzabbadapp? still there or not interested? need more info?22:20
zabbadappsorry, was looking at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcQ7RkyBoBc ...22:24
zabbadappanyway, was that the channelscan from within mythtv?22:25
dschansry, dont have flash support, yet...22:27
dschani tried to import a channels.conf but mythtv told me that it's not able to parse the file.22:29
zabbadappok, have you tried just letting it scan the entier frequency range? it will find your channels, even if it take longer time22:29
zabbadappi had problems importing any kind of frequencies also and gave up ... until i realised i didn't need one22:30
dschani'll try again, but i'm sure that i tried everything for about a thousand times... anyway... just a sec22:30
dschangot the german version installed. I tried sth like "entire scan of all known transponders" and it returns sth like "error adjusting transponder frequency" then the next dialogue box appears and does ... nothing...22:34
zabbadappelse you can install "apt-get install dvb-utils" to use the command "scan /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-t/de-NameOfClosestTransmitter" ... you may get better error messages from the commandline22:34
dschanhow can i find out about my closest transmitter?22:35

zabbadappah! i think I know the problem, have you enabled the internal amplifier of the T-500 ?22:40
dschanok. hmmm. how can i get this ;-)   ....  however, thanks for your help so far!22:40
dschaninternal amplifier? i don't think so. never heard of it22:41
dschanhad good reception(?) during scan (99%)22:41
zabbadappdo you have a line "options dvb-usb-dib0700 force_lna_activation=1" in the file /etc/modprobe.d/options ?22:42
dschanwhere should i look for this line?22:42
zabbadappless /etc/modprobe.d/options22:42
dschannot at all22:43
dschanshall i add?22:43
zabbadappyes, do that -- it can't get any worse .... lna = low noise amplifier (or something like that .. I have a T-500 too, and without that line it didn't work at all for me .. and it is a common knowledge for this card)22:44
dschanwow. didnt know that... how can i load the new options22:45
dschanby the way: Great to have a patient and nice helper online! THANK YOU SO MUCH!22:45
zabbadappi don't know, i would do the windows way (reboot) ...22:46
dschanok, then I'll be off for a couple of minutes... cheers and cu later22:46
zabbadappdo you have the T-500 firmware in /lib/firmware/2.6.xxxx-generci/ also?22:47
dschanjust a sec22:47
zabbadappcalled dvb-usb-dib0700-(something).fw  .... dmesg | grep -i dvb will show if it is loaded (and what name your version of v4l expects it to be named)22:49
dschani hae got that le. hoi am u th pceson oth crd22:50
zabbadappit should be ok, because i don't think you would have any dvb-device else22:50
dschansorry, again22:50
dschani have got that file. however i have the pci version22:50
zabbadappyes, but the T-500 has an usb-device built in to the pci card (really!) .. som the dvb-hardware is actually two usb-dongles put on a pci-card22:51
dschanok?! wow...22:52
zabbadappconfusing but nothing to care about .. it works, and was probably a lot cheaper/faster for Hauppage to manufacture22:52

dschanDVB: registering new adapter (TT-Budget/WinTV-NOVA-T PCI)22:56
dschan...is what i have22:56
zabbadappyes, sorry once again .. nova-T is not one of those pci-usb cards .. so forget my ramblings about that :)   ... however, the "scan" command is real and works just as good for you as for my nova T-50022:57
dschansure ... had a vdr vefore and used it there. however i seem to be too stupid to apply old knowledge (or patience...) :D22:58
zabbadappwhat kind of antenna do you have? does it require a power inserter and is it running? to me it seems like you are getting extremely bad reception so even channel scans fail23:00
zabbadapp(you know, like if you forgot to plug in the aerial :) )23:00
dschani played a lot with that and in the mythtv channel scan (backend) i had brilliant reception23:01
dschanantenna type ...23:01
dschanjust checked the plug again .. was fine23:02
zabbadappdid the scan command say anything important at all? use the pastebin if needed: http://mythbuntu.pastebin.com/23:04
dschani'll try ... can i delete options dvb-usb-dib0700 force_lna_activation=123:04
zabbadappyes, but i don't think it makes any difference, so you don't need to reboot right now23:05
zabbadapp(since you dont have that module at all)23:05
dschanok, so i'll throw it out again .. for the cleanliness :-)23:07
zabbadappyes, you should remove it...  :-) i have no idea what could be wrong ... when I had a really bad directional antenna, i would get the channels of at least one mux (depending on how I pointed it), so I knew that my card wasn't completly dead ... but you get nothing :-(23:09
zabbadappi mean, i got the channels of one mux when doing scan ... i could never watch them because there were so many errors in the reception :-) ... bought a new antenna then23:10
dschan??? Maybe something wrong with drivers or so? the ardware should be fine... This antenna is a lot better than an amplidied one I tried.23:11
zabbadappespecially since you know it has worked before23:11
zabbadappi have to give up, maybe someone else can step up and resolve this?23:12
dschanyep. and the area i live in is only a couple of kilometres out of a major city. i had about 25 perfect programmes23:12
dschanhowever: thank you so much for your help!!23:13
zabbadappno problem, good luck23:13
dschananyone else any idea?23:13
dschancan anybody help? signal strenght: 99% ...23:30
dschantimeout scan no signal23:31
Seeker`is there a way to get xmltv to download only the listings for channels that can be found by scanning23:40
zabbadappSeeker`: during the configuration of xmltv, you should have answered "yes" only to channels you wanted, you can correct that by editing  .mythtv/<name_of_source>.xmltv so that channel=tv1.com becomes channel!tv1.com to disable a certain xmltv channel23:45
Seeker`is there a way of doing it automatically, so I dont have to go through the 250 or so channels23:46
zabbadappthere is most certainly some way to automate that :-) but i don't think there is a ready solution for it23:48
zabbadappsee it as a chance to flex those scripting skills a bit :D23:49
