defendguinive got a problem with mythtv.   all my icons on the menu have disappeared02:18
wolvhave you tried picking another theme..02:20
wolvhappened to me02:20
wolvpicked another , then back to the original , it rebuilt the theme it seems,02:21
wolvI dont understand the particulars, yet,  but it worked for me02:21
defendguini can't get to the menu to change themes02:22
defendguinwolv: is there a command line way to change themes?02:23
wolvsorry , I have just recently gotten into the programming of myth , I dont understand much of it yet02:24
wolvI have had it running for some time, but just recently had the time to learn whats making it tick02:24
defendguinits hard to change the theme without seeing whats going on02:26
defendguini even tried uninstalling that theme and rebooting to see if it would pick a different theme02:27
wolvcould be a permissions problem ?02:48
wolvbut guessing your looked into that02:48
defendguinnot really sure i didn't mess with any permissions02:50
wolvI am sure there are a LOT of others here with a ton more knowledge02:52
defendguinmythfrontend -O Theme=themename  if you ever want to start up myth with a different theme02:52
wolvmaybe something like imagmagic, or something that resizes pics that it uses to scale the themes?02:53
wolvmight be messed up ?02:53
wolvI am completely taking a guess that it uses something liek that02:54
defendguini have a few ideas let me confirm something02:59
defendguini switched from the nvidia driver to the nv driver and that is why the opengl painter isn't working03:01
defendguinthats what happened i'm sure of it03:01
hadsWell yeah03:01
wolvcan tell myth to not render using the opengl03:01
defendguinyeah i'd rather get xorg.conf fixed03:02
defendguinwhats the command to get dpkg to configure a package again03:23
wolvdpkg-reconfigure ?03:31
wolvdpkg-reconfigure <package name>03:31

=== superm1|away is now known as superm1
superm1doje, yea i'm here now06:48
cannso i never got the nova-s+ to work so i bought a sky star 2 (rev 2.6d) instead. but i dont get that to work either, it simply wont tune using scan , kaffeine or mythtv. anyone know if there is any patch or something out there ? running 2.6.24-19 latest v4l07:09
canni can scan channels if i use a a "normal" decoder box like dreambox or whatever07:10
directhexare any statistics produced estimating the number of people who use the mythbuntu weekly repos?12:05
Davieydirecthex: i could run through the logs, maybe awstats etc to generate some if you really want them12:15
directhexDaviey, i'm mainly curious12:16
directhexDaviey, i want to know how many hits a "major" third party repo gets12:16
directhexi'm tracking unique IPs pulling Packages.gz, per-arch12:16
Davieydirecthex: I'll do that when i find 5 mins! :)12:18
directhexDaviey, neato!12:18
directhexDaviey, i'd ask the medibuntu people, but i suspect the number would be "one hundred beeeelion"12:18
directhexDaviey, some numbers for my repo at the foot of http://directhex.mfgames.com/hardy.html12:20
Davieydirecthex: neat12:21
superm1well i'm not sure we have that kind of power on the US repo14:39
superm1i dont think i have acces to the logs14:39
directhexreally? none at all? shame :/14:40
directhexalso, AFTERNOON MARIO! 8D14:40
Davieysuperm1: you can't see the apache logs?!14:54
superm1Daviey, k well lets see, ill try to look again - but i thought he had a mirroring system14:55
superm1Daviey, and the machine i connect to isn't the machine that actually runs apache14:55
superm1what was the hostname again for the us site?.....14:55
Daviey(lazy web)14:56
Davieysuperm1: weeklybuilds.mythbuntu.org14:56
superm1yeah that's the host people see, not the one that i ssh into..14:57
Davieyoh yeah15:00
Davieyit's the ol' mythbuntu.org server, isn't it?15:00
superm1no it's not15:00
Davieyis this one of jumpkicks?15:01
superm1no, axel thimm's15:01
superm1okay i found my way in, and the logs are mirrored to this box too15:01
superm1but unfortunately15:02
superm1cd httpd/15:02
superm1-bash: cd: httpd/: Permission denied15:02
superm1i think probably RHEL15:02
superm1Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server release 5.2 (Tikanga)15:03
directhexhah @ logs without permissions :/15:04
directhexsounds like the only option is a php page to process logs O_o15:05
superm1logs directory is owned by root15:05
superm1so thinking still that wouldnt work15:05
directhexfeh :|15:07
Davieythose crazy RHEL'ers15:09
superm1they probably think we do some weird/crazy stuff15:11

humehi...I have a mythbuntu-installation, where I have installed a new nvidia-graphics card, but I have problems getting the res right. TV is panasonic TH-42PV80P, documentation says native res is 1024 x 768 (which is strange since it is a wide screen TV) - nvidia vard reads EDID and tries with 1240x1024 res, but it shows only part of the desktop - anypne can help configure this card correctly?22:04
directhexDaviey, did you extract any stats?22:10
ubun2JunkyI´m looking to upgrading my mythbox so it´s HD compatible.  I´ve got a PVR-150 card right now...  I´m assuming I´m going to have to upgrade.  How about my graphics card?  Just wondering what other people have as far as a HD setup for myth?22:42
directhexgraphics card sadly makes no odds in linux right now for hd22:47
directhexyou're US based?22:47
ubun2Junkydirecthex, yup23:03
directhexshould get away with it CPUwise then23:04
directhexplanning on receiving your broadcasts how?23:04
ubun2Junkyso my pvr 150 will receive HD signals?23:07
directhexanalog or digital cable?23:08
ubun2JunkyI don´t have a cable box on my tv if that´s what you mean.23:08
directhexno idea then. yank tech is out of my comfort zome. ask #mythtv-users23:09
* hads also23:09
ubun2JunkyI´ve seen some hauppauge units like hvr-1250 just wondering if that´s the sort of tuner that I´ll have to upgrade my pvr-150 to?23:10
tgm4883_laptopubun2Junky, something like the HVR-1600 would do you well23:13
tgm4883_laptopit's supported in 8.1023:13
ubun2Junkyis that all I need to upgrade?23:14
tgm4883_laptopwell being that all I know that you have is a PVR-150, I don't know23:15
ubun2Junkygeforce 5600 video card for the output23:15
ubun2Junkyrunning on a amd 2.5mhz with 500mb23:15
ubun2JunkyI read that HD is processor intensive... so I´m also assuming that PC will need to get upgraded...23:16
tgm4883_laptopwell the video card might do, the processor might do also.  Upgrade both of those would help23:17
directhex"HD" just means "video which is at least 720 pixels tall"23:17
directhexanything else is a per-case question23:17
tgm4883_laptopyes, that is very true23:17
directhexlow bitrate 1280x720 mpeg2 will play on any old thing. high bitrate unsliced paff-encoded h264.....23:18
directhexat 1920x1080.....23:18
ubun2Junkyif you wanted the higher resolution then you need better tuner, video and processor?23:19
directhexhonestly i have no idea about analog hd cable. i simply can't help you on that topic23:19
directhexi don't know anythikng to receive that direct, off the top of my head, but frankly i don't give a toss about products which only help americans23:20
ubun2Junkydirecthex, you using cable then?23:20
ubun2Junkysatellite...  gotcha.23:20
directhexwhich is what everyone in the world who isn't america uses instead of atsc, for digital over-the-air broadcast23:20
directhexsatellite is dvb-s23:20
ubun2Junkywhere are you at?23:21
directhexcheck the hostmask.23:21
ubun2Junkynice...  common wealth nation!23:21
hadsHaha h264 1080i is annoying yes.23:26
ubun2Junkyhas anyone tried this HDHomeRun?23:28
superm1yeah a bunch of us have one23:30
superm1quite nice toys23:30
ubun2Junkysounds pretty cool...  will it stream to vnc player?23:31
superm1vnc doesn't support Xv, so usually video doesnt make sense to watch23:32
superm1but if you are meaning VLC, yeah you can stream to VLC23:32
ubun2Junkysuperm1, woops... yeah that´s what I meant23:32
ubun2Junkyso if you´re getting regular tv cable without the need for a cable box is that what they refer to as QAM?23:34
ubun2Junkyvs ATSC which is what you get with the rabbit ears?23:35
superm1QAM means digital unencrypted cable23:35
superm1you can get it without a cable box yes23:35
superm1if your HDTV supports QAM, you can go do a scan and see what you would get with it23:35
superm1ATSC is  the OTA variant of digital TV23:35
ubun2Junkywhat I get with comcast for $12 a month!23:35
superm1well it's only the unencrypted stations23:36
superm1so you'll have to see how many are actually unencrypted23:36
ubun2Junkyso currently I´m also viewing encrypted channels?  But with the HD switch they´ll be encrypted?23:37
ubun2Junkyhomerun sites says at my location I can get 23 programs with digital antenna and 88 programs with digital cable.23:39
tgm4883_laptopdigital switch23:39
tgm4883_laptopnot HD switch23:39
tgm4883_laptopthere is a difference23:39
ubun2Junkyso this says that without the cable box!  I will get 23 programs...  if I purchase digital cable from comcast I will get 88 programs?  Sry really newbie here on this subject!23:40
superm1ubun2Junky, well do you have a high def TV right now?  or at least a TV that supports digital TV?23:41
superm1you can do an experiment and see what you'll get23:41
ubun2JunkyI have HD tv, but nothing that will push a HD signal to it.23:41
tgm4883_laptoptv model number?23:42
hadsI'm guessing he is refering to a digital tuner.23:42
ubun2Junkysamsung 32"series 5 lcd23:43
ubun2Junkyinstructions say that I have ntsc, atsc, qam tuner23:44
tgm4883_laptoptheres the info we're looking for23:44
tgm4883_laptopso you can use your TV to see what channels the HDHomerun would get23:45
ubun2JunkyI´m just trying to make sense of what those abbreviations mean...23:45
tgm4883_laptopwell superm1 did tell you earlier23:45
tgm4883_laptopapprox 10 minutes ago23:45
ubun2Junkyyes he did...  it really helped...23:45
tgm4883_laptopso then hook your cable up to your TV and scan for channels23:46
ubun2Junkyso ntsc is what is eventually going away?23:46
ubun2Junkycool... thx for you´re help guys...  I think I can better understand what I´m reading now!  I´ll give this another try.23:48
