MythbuntuGuest24How do I set up TV out with invidia if my monitor is larger than my TV?00:50
ian_001is there a way through mythtv to modify id3 tags?01:16
DurtDigglerfor some reason my front end is not connecting to my backend03:02
DurtDiggleroh.. fixed it03:10
DurtDiggleranybody know why I am getting either no sound at all or just a buzzing noise03:21
DurtDigglerI think I got a jacked up card03:31
szakulecI'm not sure if anyone has had this problem, but I couldn't get the audio synced up from my PVR-250 recordings unless I used mytharchive (different set of issues there); I recently found ProjectX, and it just works- go here for details on it: http://avidemux.org/admWiki/index.php?title=Project_X:03:39
szakulecIcedTea will work in place of Sun's Java (at least for what I did anyway)03:40
DurtDigglerat least you have audio03:53
CRXLPYtgm4883_laptop hi03:58
CRXLPYI just got bak from work, while you were gone this afternoon I got both channels to play, I blacklisted ac97 and I think something else but I cant remember now04:00
CRXLPYthe tuner card is scratchy and the pvr gets gurgly. so I still dont have good sound, but I do have bad sound out of both speakers.  thats progress eh? tgm4883_laptop04:02
tgm4883_laptopyea I suppose that is progress04:03
DurtDigglerhey tgm4883_laptop I have a font end now04:04
CRXLPYI am making a recording from each card. I will be playing them in mplayer to see in the sound is the same04:04
DurtDigglerand the sound is messed up with live tv04:04
CRXLPYhow would I play the recording from the tunercard? it is an nuv file04:05
DurtDigglerit just makes buzzing sounds or nothing at all totally randomly04:05
szakulecDurtDiggler: actually, I either can have audio or internet access on that box04:08
DurtDigglersometimes people sound like aliens on mine04:09
DurtDigglerif I hear anything at all04:09
szakulecif nothing else works, you can do what I did and buy a USB soundcard- it sounds good, and works perfectly04:09
DurtDigglerI just bought a brand new pvr 25004:09
DurtDigglerusually when I buy stuff it's broken04:10
DurtDigglerI almost always have to return it04:10
DurtDiggleris there driver problems maybe with the pvr 25004:10
DurtDigglerI thought a lotta poeple used that card04:11
szakulecno- but you might want the firmware04:11
DurtDigglerdo I need to download different drivers04:13
DurtDigglerit seems like a driver problem04:14
DurtDiggleror a card problem04:14
CRXLPYfirmware is part of the driver, you need to look up how to get the firmware.  not a driver problem, you just dont have the complete driver yet04:17
DurtDiggleroh I didn't know anything about getting new firmware04:19
CRXLPYnot firmware as in "flashing bios" this is something that is loaded as part of the driver(it isnt flashed to the card)04:21
CRXLPYusually you extract it from the windows driver file on the cd04:21
DurtDigglerdo you know anywhere I can get instructions on this04:23
CRXLPYone sec, lemme ask google04:23
DurtDiggleroh I'm asking him already04:24
DurtDigglerjust thought Ide ask IRC also :)04:24
CRXLPYapparently you will need to match your revision(of which there are many) http://ivtv.writeme.ch/tiki-index.php?page=FirmwareVersions04:25
hadsFirmware is included now IIRC04:30
DurtDigglerI can't find my firmware04:32
DurtDigglern/m I found it04:33
MythbuntuGuest61i accidentally clicked the wrong language for the mythbuntu backend setup, and I'd like to change it back to English; is there any way to do this without having to reinstall the entire thing?04:33
MythbuntuGuest61i followed the instructions found at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=418768, but it didn't work04:35
DapOrpit's gotta be stored in the mysql database somewhere.  can prolly change it there.04:35
MythbuntuGuest61yeah, thats what that thread said to do04:35
MythbuntuGuest61but i have no idea where the hell it would be or even what to look for04:35
DurtDigglerhey CRXLPY04:39
DurtDigglermy firmware doesnt match any of those on that list04:39
CRXLPYhads said the firmware is included now04:40
DurtDigglerdoes this apply for mythdora too04:40
CRXLPYit applies for the card and driver, regardless of the distro04:41
DurtDigglerthen I must have a bad card04:41
CRXLPYhave you tested in multiple tv apps?04:41
DurtDigglerwhen I order stuff I should just have them ship it to their rma department04:42
CRXLPYhave you tested in multiple tv apps?04:42
DurtDigglerno not yet04:42
CRXLPYdont say you have a bad card then04:42
DurtDigglerthats gonna be so much trouble04:42
CRXLPYtry tvtime04:42
DurtDiggleroh ok04:43
DurtDigglerhow do I shut down mythtv04:43
DurtDigglerthe backend04:44
CRXLPYdont worry bout it04:44
MythbuntuGuest68how do you show the data in a table in SQL?04:45
DurtDigglerit's wierd.. when I try to start it it just pops up for a split second then shuts down04:49
CRXLPYtry running it in a terminal04:49
CRXLPYand what does it say in the term?04:50
DurtDigglerit pops the screen up for a split second04:50
DurtDigglerand then shuts down04:50
CRXLPYand what does it say in the term?    anything?04:51
CRXLPYdoes it just go to another prompt04:51
DurtDiggleroh now it's doing somthing04:51
DurtDigglerI rebooted04:51
CRXLPYyou gotta tell me these things, I wont help you if you only tell me bits04:52
DurtDigglerextension xvideo missing on display ":0.0"04:53
DurtDiggleryou gotta give me a second to get the info04:53
CRXLPYand you are of course in X right?04:53
DurtDigglerxvoutput: XVIDEO extension not found04:54
DurtDigglerX too old? didn't load extmod?04:55
DurtDigglerthats what it says04:55
CRXLPYdoes not mean x too old04:55
DurtDigglerthose questions were part of the error04:56
CRXLPYwhat version *buntu are you running04:56
DurtDigglerI'm on fedora actually04:56
CRXLPYoh no wonder, you are in the wrong channel04:56
DurtDigglerhaha well Im trying to get help with mythtv04:57
DurtDigglerI don't know what happened to the mythtv channel04:57
DurtDigglerI thought there used to be one04:57
CRXLPYit is on the mythtv website04:57
CRXLPYthat is the channel04:57
CRXLPYyou need x fixed first04:58
DurtDiggleroh I see my irc didn't show it in the list04:58
DurtDiggleryeah Ill go to fedora and get it fixed04:58
CRXLPYnot sure what rpm it would be but something like xf86-video-xv04:59
CRXLPYyou need the xv driver installed04:59
CRXLPYthen hopfully tvtime will work and you will have a test tool04:59
MythbuntuGuest68so does anyone know exactly where the language setting is in the mysql db?05:02
CRXLPYthe link you were given earlier shows how very plainly MythbuntuGuest6805:04
MythbuntuGuest68yeah, i saw that, but it didn't work for some reason; its still a different language05:04
MythbuntuGuest68grr....its probably easiest to reinstall :(05:04
CRXLPYnow you sound like a windows user    lol05:05
MythbuntuGuest68i'm trying to get rid of Windows and move over to ubuntu05:06
MythbuntuGuest68xp was alright, but vista...ugh05:06
DurtDigglerit would probablyu be faster for me jsut to take the damn card out and put it in my windows machine and test it05:06
DurtDigglerI'll spend the next 2 weeks trying to get that TV program working in linux05:07
MythbuntuGuest68you shouldn't have to save the DB or anything when you make changes, right? it should just be instant?05:07
CRXLPYnot fixing stuff is never faster DurtDiggler05:07
DurtDigglerI'm not worried about tvtime05:08
DurtDigglerI just want mythtv to work05:08
CRXLPYok fine05:08
CRXLPYthe other channels are going to ask you the same thing05:08
DurtDigglerwhats that05:09
CRXLPYdoes it do the same thing in another app05:09
DurtDiggleryeah Ill find out on my windows box05:09
CRXLPYbasic troubleshooting 10105:09
DurtDigglerthe easiest woudl be if I had another card05:09
CRXLPYyou will still be asked it when you are doing config05:09
CRXLPYyou are making this hard. what is hard about installing the xv driver and running tvtime?05:10
DurtDigglerthe fact that I use windows05:11
DurtDigglerand I'm new to linux05:11
CRXLPYok  dont ask for help with linux then05:11
DurtDigglerhaha why would I not ask for help05:11
DurtDigglerI know everything about windows05:11
CRXLPYbecause you dont want to take it05:12
DurtDigglerlinux is where I need help05:12
CRXLPYbut when I try to help you just run to windows and say linux is too hard05:12
DurtDigglerwell I think testing the card is windows will be faster at this point05:12
DurtDigglerin windows*05:13
CRXLPYbesides you are in the wrong channel. I cant even tell you how to install the xv driver05:13
rhpot1991DurtDiggler: launch the restricted drivers manager and install whatever 3rd party graphics drivers you need05:13
DurtDigglerand #fedora wasnt give me any kind of response05:13
CRXLPYhe isnt using buntu rhpot199105:13
rhpot1991heh, perhaps I should have read all the way up then05:13
CRXLPYrhpot1991 that is why I said wrong channel05:14
CRXLPYhe just wants to do his testing in windows to figure out why linux doesnt work......if that makes sense rhpot199105:15
DurtDigglerto figure out why the card doesnt work05:16
DurtDigglerif it doesnt work05:16
CRXLPYok cul8tr05:17
DurtDigglergod I completely forgot I have a techstation just for this purpose05:24
DurtDigglerinside out computer05:25
DurtDiggleryup my cards broken07:18
DurtDigglerI wish just once I could get a working piece of merchandise the first time it's sent to me07:18
anubismy transcodes are eroring out07:20
anubisexit status 255, job status was "Errored"07:21
rhpot1991multiple backends?07:21
DurtDigglerdoes anyone know where I can buy a pvr-50007:23
anubisrhpot1991, only one backend. Going to check the recording prefs07:26
anubisrhpot1991, I did not have the transcoder set to lossless07:30
anubisI normally do so I can edit and transcode out the commercials with the cutlist07:30

MythbuntuGuest59hi there17:10
MythbuntuGuest59is this the right place for mythubuntu support?17:10
tgm4883_laptopMythbuntuGuest59, yes17:12
tgm4883_laptop!ask | MythbuntuGuest5917:12
ZinnMythbuntuGuest59: Please don't ask if anyone is around or if it is alright to ask a question.  Many people check back periodically and may answer your question when they see it.  IRC is not normally an instant fix so check back often for an answer.17:12
MythbuntuGuest59alright, sorry. i'm new to mythubuntu. can i connect to my mythubuntu server using mythtv on windows for example? or is it a completely different project?17:13
tgm4883_laptopMythbuntuGuest59, yes you can17:14
tgm4883_laptoptom_, random stab in the dark, have you tried blacklisting the lgdt330x module?17:14
MythbuntuGuest59thanks alot and have a nice day17:16
tom_tgm4883_laptop, no I havent.  I will try however the cx23885 code does not contain any linkage to the zarlink module ie zl1035317:16
Seeker`is it possible to change what user mythtv runs as17:16
Seeker`I am logged in as "chris", but all the files are owned by mythtv, wich seems to make mythtranscode and mytharchive fail, as the files are owned by "mythtv"17:16
tom_tgm4883_laptop, I have tried blacklisting the lgdt330x module.  This prevents it from loading but as expected no other demodulator is loaded and thus /dev/dvb is not created. Thanks anyway.17:21
sabhainSeeker, have you added chris to the mythtv group?18:03
sabhainand also, check that the "group" can write to those directories / files .. then you should be ok.18:05
Seeker`mythtranscode keeps on failing to run when trying to use mytharchive18:54
Seeker`and the resulting dvd is jerky19:22
mythuser23__high i'm trying to get my PVR 350 to display on my tv using its out. i'm running on mythbuntu. anyone have any ideas?21:20
jphillipmythuser23__ go buy a real video card, and thank me later?21:40
jphillipthe 350's out is neat, but once you realize how limited it is, its not worth the hastle21:41
CRXLPYmythuser23__ here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MythTV_Gutsy_hardware_pvr-350_TV-out21:41
lagai guess if he's got the card, why not give it a try?21:42
CRXLPYalthough there may be better cards I understand it is what you have so I used google(hint)  and found the above link at the top of the list21:43
CRXLPYgood man laga much batter answer than the earlier one21:47
Seeker`how long does it take to download 42 channels over xmltv?22:06
jphillipCRXLPY I'd disagree, as someone who has  used that, I think he should know the downfalls before he wastes time getting it working22:20
jphillipseems he doesn't want to discuss it though :)22:21
CRXLPYyou could have stated it more constructively at least22:21
lagajphillip: you didn't mention the downfalls. you just said it was limited22:21
CRXLPYmaybe let him try to get the 350 going and realize this aint gonna do22:22
CRXLPY"go buy a real video card"  is more a comment on him than on the video card.  I dont blame him for retreating22:23
dmzhowdy! anyone here using mythbuntu on a EVIA-M board?22:23
CRXLPYwhat arch is that board?22:24
dmz600MHz Fanless VIA Eden™ Processor (x86 compat)22:24
CRXLPYahh neato.   and no I havent (lol)22:25
dmzi can't seem to get video playback to work, i can get mplayer w/avi working but internal player doesn't seem to know the mpeg decoder / video out and whenever i play a recording or video it kills mythfrontend and drops back to gdm logon22:25
dmzoops, dinner time, if anyone answers i'll check for response when i get back22:25
dmzhttp://www.via.com.tw/en/products/mainboards/motherboards.jsp?motherboard_id=81  (lots of them on ebay:)22:26
rhpot1991350 downfalls is that it can ONLY do mpeg2, so if you want to do anything else it wont cut it, xwindows control on it is very very limited and configuration is a pain22:46
rhpot1991it can only do SD as well, but that may not be an issue for him22:47
lagait can do Xv22:47
rhpot1991outlined there22:48
mythuser23__what do you mean buy a real card?22:54
mythuser23__like what kind of card? the PVR's are highly recomended22:54
rhpot1991actual video card that can do other things, didn't mean to come off as mean or anything, just was busy at work22:54
rhpot1991well yes, for a capture card22:54
rhpot1991and the 350 outputs SD video captured from it quite nicely, but if you want to do anything else, then it will not cut it22:55
mythuser23__i just want to be able to display my mythtv and video on my older tv, when i finally get my 42" hdtv than i'll just use vga to rgb22:56
lagajust use VGA to VGA or DVI?22:57
rhpot1991it will do for that, that ubuntu wiki link above looks reasonable, but I recall seeing words about it being harder to do in newer mythbuntu revisions so you may want to check the forums if you run into problems22:58
mythuser23__older machine, onboard video card. thinking about putting a nicer video card in though, heard Nvidia works better with linux22:58
mythuser23__right now i have a 150 and a 350 in my machine. building a mythbox for my parents though and put a 350 in there because they have an older big screen with no VGA input so i was counting on and trying to get the video out to work23:00
rhpot1991350 can't do HD output23:01
rhpot1991keep that in mind23:01
mythuser23__yea, i was going to get a 3rd HD card when i come to that point23:01
rhpot1991laga: I ordered an eeepc today23:01
lagaamazon shipped my copy of "American Nerd" today :)23:02
lagarhpot1991: the 901?23:02
mythuser23__Another qusetion. for some reason when i go into the backend and try to setup the capture card on my parents box its unable to see it! any suggestions on how to fix it?23:03
mythuser23__on mine it found it right away23:03
rhpot1991laga a 100023:04
rhpot1991hopefully I can stop being a slacker now23:04
lagarhpot1991: regarding what? mythbuntu? ;)23:06
mythuser23__i'm sorry what are you asking?23:08
rhpot1991laga: yep, I have a bunch of stuff half way done that I just don't feel like working on when I get home from work23:27
lagarhpot1991: heh.. i've got some spare time now and the MCC revamp is actually progressing.. i hope to have the first plugin completely converted & functional by sunday23:33
