superm1MythbuntuGuest81, it looks like you are missing a proprietary driver06:17
superm1ajhtiredwolf, install lirc on ubuntu and pick the windows media center remote06:18
MythbuntuGuest81which one06:18
superm1ajhtiredwolf, you can use irxevent to map it to X keys06:18
superm1MythbuntuGuest81, well that depends on your graphics card06:18
superm1what kind of graphics card do you have?06:18
MythbuntuGuest81I have ATI pro 256 MB AGP graphics card06:18
MythbuntuGuest81the thing is I can play the recorded files well in my VLC player06:19
superm1MythbuntuGuest81, okay so install the ati graphics driver and then enable it's video overlay06:19
MythbuntuGuest81or any other Divx files in VLC06:19
superm1if you already have it installed, you are just missing the video overlay setting06:19
MythbuntuGuest81how do I enable video overlay06:19
superm1MythbuntuGuest81, it's in aticonfig --help, i don't remember how offhand06:19
ajhtiredwolfsuperm1, where could i find irxevent?06:26
superm1its part of the lirc package06:26
ajhtiredwolfirxevent --help doesnt return anything for me06:29
MythbuntuGuest24superml: this is MythbuntuGuest81: pls look at http://mythbuntu.pastebin.com/d1645219406:31

MythbuntuGuest24it has my xorg.conf & the ati -- help stuff .. pls advice06:31
superm1eg make file ~/.lirc/irxevent and modify ~/.lircrc to include it06:31
superm1MythbuntuGuest24, so run "sudo aticonfig --ovt=Xv"06:32
superm1and then restart X06:32

MythbuntuGuest36does anyone have any pointers for getting better cover art for dvd's, i just loaded Episode III and also Army of Darkness and both covers looked like they were snapshots of a previously folded up poster19:35
MythbuntuGuest36i have even manually entered the imdb number and it still pulls a random pictures19:40

ZinnSorry I don't know about mythtv20:02
MythbuntuGuest36superml: how do you manually do it?  i would like to learn how20:04
link589How do you connect directv to a mythbox?20:04
superm1link589, you'll need to use svideo or composite generally20:06
superm1and an ir blaster20:06
superm1MythbuntuGuest36, you'll need to go through and download images, and then manually set coverart in mythvideo's manager20:06
ZinnMythTV is a free Unix application which turns a computer with the necessary hardware into a network streaming digital video recorder, a digital multimedia home entertainment system, or Home Theater Personal Computer. It can be considered as a free and open source alternative to Tivo or Windows Media Center.20:07
superm1there we go :)20:07
link589so its possible to use directv with myth then?20:07
superm1yeah it is20:07
MythbuntuGuest36when i am in mythvideos manager i cannot see anywhere to add the photos manually20:08
superm1MythbuntuGuest36, you'll have to hit "m" for the menu i beleive20:09
link589so i have the option of svideo or composite to the back of the tunner card?20:12
superm1link589, that depends on your tuner card20:15
superm1link589, any of the analog haupaugge cards do20:15
link589yeah i have a haupaugge card20:17
link589i also heard firewire is an option?20:17
superm1not with direct tv20:17
link589do they disable the firewire?20:18
MythbuntuGuest36i hit m and i cannot see anywhere to set cover art20:19
superm1link589, i don't know of any direct tv set that has firewire20:24
superm1MythbuntuGuest36, hum, i don't have it in front of me, but i could have sworn there was some setting there20:24
superm1MythbuntuGuest36, if it turns out there isn't, there's always manually prodding the mysql database...20:24
link589do you know if digitalcable (timewarner) works the same way?20:25
foxbuntuMythbuntuGuest36, its the "information" button whatever it is "i" perhaps?20:25
superm1link589, depends on your locale, in some areas you can get a bunch of channels off time warner via firewire20:32
superm1some you can't20:32
superm1where i currently live (texas), you can get a handful of channels (about 5), but that's it20:32
link589hmm I wonder how many NY would get20:35
link589I am trying to figure out my best option. I used to have regular cable through coax. However I moved and regular cable from the provider here is the same as digital cable, which is dumb.20:42
link589same as in price20:42
MythbuntuGuest36superml: it is a little more work to add my own coverart, but at least i can get my own art now20:49
foxbuntulink589, thats because the cost to send it to your house is realitivly static and Cable Co's can charge whatever they want because they usually control their entire market area20:49
link589what do you think my chances of the firewire port on the digital cable box working is?20:50
foxbuntucoin flip20:52
foxbuntuits different everywhere20:52
foxbuntuyou either need to find someone reporting if it works or not, or just try it out20:52
link589i think i will call and ask...although they might not answer my question20:53
foxbuntulink589, the port may work but the video may or may not be encrypted20:54
foxbuntuthats the real issue20:54
foxbuntuwell Im outta here off to other things to do today20:58
freezemanWhat DVB-C card works for Mythbuntu? It's just confusing to read the wiki about this!21:19
link589why does my cable company have to have firewire with 5c enctyprtion21:47
superm1most do :(22:02
tgm4883_laptopsuperm1, I think that was a philosophical question22:03
link589:( now im stuck i dont know what to go with22:11
link589directv or digital cable22:12
superm1digital cable has the advantage that you can at least change channels via firewire22:12
link589yeah and local channels i can record through firewire22:15
link589would i be able to do firewire for channel changing and svideo or composite for everything else?22:15
superm1link589, that's what i do myself now22:17
MythbuntuGuest21can you run mythbuntu live disk on a computer that only has wifi wep ?22:18
superm1link589, it's a shame i have to do it that way though since i've only got 4 or 5 digital channels i watch.  only 2 of them come through on firewire though22:18
superm1MythbuntuGuest21, sure22:18
superm1MythbuntuGuest21, as long as it's hardware is supported via the wifi drivers22:18
link589superml thanks22:18
superm1MythbuntuGuest21, if its say a broadcom b43 supported card, you would need firmware though22:18
superm1MythbuntuGuest21, or if its ndiswrapper you'll need the windows driver22:18
superm1no prob link589.22:19
tgm4883_laptopsuperm1, you can change channels via cable also with directv22:19
MythbuntuGuest36still cannot set my own cover art for dvd's, can anyone help?22:19
link589superml, are any of those unencrypted local channels in HD?22:19
MythbuntuGuest21thanks will be back in a bit just finshing up dl'in the live cd to test out with my back end :) ...22:20
link589MythbuntuGuest36, my guess is that your imdb script is broken22:20
link589mine was once22:20
tgm4883_laptoplink589, that wouldn't effect setting your own dvd art22:21
link589ahh, you can do that from mythweb22:21
MythbuntuGuest36i get the cover art, i get the synopsis, however some of the covers are really obscure and poor quality.  I have downloaded my own and want to add them22:21
superm1link589, yeah all the local hd's22:21
superm1tgm4883_laptop, via what type of cable?22:22
link589MythbuntuGuest36, put the movie posters you want in the poster directory22:22
link589then in video manager click the video and edit the metadata you can set it from there22:22
superm1tgm4883_laptop, ah this i wasn't aware22:22
tgm4883_laptopsuperm1, http://www.patersontech.com/products/usbtvtranslator.aspx22:23
tgm4883_laptopfor instance22:23
tgm4883_laptopthats how I change all of mine, is through a cable22:23
superm1a wii bit pricey22:23
tgm4883_laptopmuch more reliable22:23
tgm4883_laptopsuperm1, thats only one example22:23
tgm4883_laptopyou can get them much cheaper, or build your own22:23
MythbuntuGuest36link589: i tried that and it will not change.22:23
link589did you chmod them?22:24
link589I had to do that one i set my own art one time22:24
MythbuntuGuest36when i tried it with mythweb it says one request pending and does not change, but the original is now gone22:25
MythbuntuGuest36i was using the video manager and edit metadata option, there was no place to chmod22:25
darthanubisusing intrepid22:26
link589yeah i usually ssh into the box and chmod from there22:26
link589laptop, how do you record from your directv box? I understand the usb serial cable22:26
darthanubisno matter what I do I can't login into the database22:26
darthanubisQMYSQL3: Unable to connect22:27
link589mysql database?22:27
darthanubisAccess denied for user 'mythtv'@'localhost' (using password: YES)22:27
darthanubisI keep reconfiguiring myth-database22:27
darthanubisthinking everything is good22:27
darthanubisthe backend is recording and everything22:27
darthanubistranscoding is also failing22:28
darthanubismythweb works fine22:28
darthanubisit is able to access the database22:28
darthanubisentries are getting stored22:28
MythbuntuGuest36should i not be able to do what i want from mythweb?22:28
link589i was never able to do it through the web i always did it via terminal22:29
link589do you want to reset your mysql password?22:29
darthanubismight help22:29
MythbuntuGuest36is there a walk through to do that through terminal?22:29
darthanubisI've setup myth at least 50times22:29
darthanubisnever had this issue22:29
link589you were trying to add a frontend?22:30
link589I messed up my database stuff it took me 3hours to fix it i dont remember the exact fix22:30
link589MythbuntuGuest36 i can help you do it through the terminal if you want22:30
MythbuntuGuest36link589: that would be great22:31
link589can you ssh into the box or do you have physical access?22:31
darthanubisAccess denied for user 'mythtv'@'localhost' (using password: YES)22:35
darthanubiswhy would access be denied22:35
darthanubisI'm using the database passwd22:35
darthanubisthe user is part of the mythtv group22:35
darthanubisit also flashes no upnp backends found22:40
link589hmm weird22:41
superm1darthanubis, look in ~/.mythtv/config.xml and ~/.mythtv/mysql.txt22:41
link589are you using mythbuntu22:41
superm1for inconsistencies22:41
darthanubislink589, no22:43
darthanubissuperm1, they are consistent, same username group and password22:43
superm1darthanubis, same as /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt?22:43
superm1darthanubis, and there is a mythweb conf in /etc/mythtv you can compare it against too22:43
darthanubis/etc/mythtv/mysql.txt does not have the password entry22:46
superm1darthanubis, is this not ubuntu either?  that's built when the package is installed22:46
darthanubisits ubuntu22:47
superm1sql is on the same box?22:48
darthanubisat one point i had the frontend running and connected22:48
darthanubisnow I don't know why its not22:48
superm1is the backend failing to start too?22:49
superm1did you enter *anything* into the root password requests when you installed myth?22:49
superm1or just keep defaults?22:50
darthanubisfrontend nor mythtv-setup will get past selecting the language and the second screen because it claims not to be able to login to the database22:50
superm1can you log into the db manually then at least?22:50
darthanubisI entered my root passwd22:50
darthanubisonce I did that once22:50
darthanubisI did not again22:50
superm1gah, that's probably threw things off22:50
darthanubisbecause I did not change the root password22:51
superm1when you use pristine packages22:51
superm1the root password thing can mess things up pretty bad22:51
darthanubisthe backend is running though22:51
superm1if you stop it and restart it, does it still run?22:51
superm1if so, then you'll need to check /home/mythtv/.mythtv/mysql.txt and compare it to ~/.mythtv/mysql.txt22:51
superm1if so, then you'll need to check /home/mythtv/.mythtv/config.xml and compare it to ~/.mythtv/config.xml22:52
darthanubisbut transcoding fails, have not look into why as of yet though22:52
darthanubisthis is so strange22:54
darthanubisI knew to check those22:54
darthanubisthats the first thing I do from experience22:54
darthanubisI did not know about /etc/mythtv though22:54
darthanubisthe backend is recording now22:55
superm1well generally /etc/mythtv/mysql.txt should be symlinked all around the system22:55
superm1so you shouldn't need to know about it22:55
darthanubisnow mythweb can't connect to the backend22:55
superm1if you can reproduce the entire use case that caused this to happen in a bug, maybe we can isolate it to solve it22:55
superm1eg run this in a vm with the exact same answers to questions when installed22:56
superm1and record notes so that we can see where it breaks22:56
wolf_Im trying to get my remote to work in lirc with irxevent but cant find the real name of a few keys i want to bind, can i make the terminal record what im pressing and tell me what keys they are?23:10
superm1eg like ircat?23:10
tgm4883_laptopwolf_, irw?23:10
superm1or irw23:10
wolf_tgm4883_laptop, that records the remote keys23:10
superm1it's one of those23:10
superm1i think tgm4883_laptop is right23:10
superm1oh real keys23:11
wolf_that will display a key when i use the remote23:11
tgm4883_laptopirw shows you what remote keys are pressed23:11
wolf_hmm xev seems to display too much information, im not showing the key name23:12
superm1it shows the key name in there though23:13
superm1    state 0x10, keycode 64 (keysym 0xffe9, Alt_L), same_screen YES,23:13
tgm4883_laptopwolf_, are you looking for something like23:13
wolf_trying to find it23:13
tgm4883_laptop000000037ff07bf2 01 Home mceusb23:13
superm1in that case, my keyname was ALT_L23:13
tgm4883_laptopwhere Home is the remote key name23:13
wolf_it does it when i do a reuglar key23:15
wolf_but not when i do the key im wanting23:15
wolf_there is a play button my my keyboard23:15
wolf_that is what im trying to capture23:15
tgm4883_laptopwolf_, looks like that button isn't configured23:15
tgm4883_laptopyou probably need to record it23:15
wolf_it works fine23:16
wolf_in all the programs i have23:16
superm1if you are in gnome, you have to unbind it probably23:16
superm1or record it outside gnome23:16
wolf_tahts what im getting23:17
wolf_i did d first23:17
wolf_that shows up fine23:17
wolf_then the one just below that is the Play button23:17
wolf_any ideas?23:21
tritiumWhat does file size "B" on the mythweb "Recorded Programs" page indicate?23:33
tritiumShows it tried (and failed) to record give me messages similar to this one: "3071_20080912162600.mpg does not exist in any recognized storage group directories for this host." if I try to access them via mythweb.  And, of course, they don't play back on the frontend.23:34
tritiumAre there any logs to view to determine why mythtv is failing to record schedule programs?23:36
ZinnMythTV logs are stored in /var/log/mythtv/23:36
tritiumThanks, tgm4883_laptop.23:36
tritiumHmm, no clues in /var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log23:38
tgm4883_laptoppastebin it23:39
Zinnwhen pasting more than 5 lines of data please use http://mythbuntu.pastebin.com so you don't flood the channel.  Then please post the link in the channel.23:39
tritiumOK, thanks23:39
tritiumtgm4883_laptop: http://mythbuntu.pastebin.com/m4a600b6c23:40
tritiumYes, the Oprah Winfrey show was for my wife.  Hence, the urgency to fix the problem.  ;)23:41
tgm4883_laptopdo other shows record?23:43
tritiumComcast screws around with its customers.  Sometimes the HD ABC channel is available, and sometimes not, so I had her use the *non* default tuner, a DVB card, rather than the HDHomeRun.23:44
tritiumThat's the only main difference from other recordings.23:44
tritiumOh, the DVB card get OTA, while the HDHR is connected to cable.23:45
tritiumBut, I can watch Live TV, including ABC with the dvb card, so I know it's getting that channel.23:45
tgm4883_laptopisn't Oprah on NBC?23:46
tgm4883_laptopI plead the 5th on why I know that23:46
tritiumNo, ABC.23:46
tritiumOh, I see that she successfully recorded Smallville last night using the dvb card.23:47
darthanubishow do you guys get an accurate read on your core temps?23:47
tritiumdarthanubis: I've never checked23:48
tritiumWow what?23:49
MythbuntuGuest36are there any places to find more skins for mythtv?  I was at cedia and there was a linux based media server that had a really cool interface.23:58
