instahey guys ... is there a way to batch the imdb movie poster thingy?  i have a directory with roughly 200 movies in it, and i'm really not wanting to grab posters one by one ...00:47
tgm4883_laptopinsta, imdb-bulk-updater, you can try mythvideo-bulk-updater from the mythbuntu-testing PPA00:49
instano way, thanks00:49
chiquesdvhart, I'll take a screenshot and see if I can get it.00:55
chiquesdvhart, I'll just reformat my whole disk with the Ubuntu 8.10 Mythtv installer.01:15
chiquesOK, I just installed mythbuntu-8.10-desktop-proper-i386.iso and it runs the front end gui nicely. The problem now is when i select the "Watch TV" option. It simply flashes the screen and stays in the main menu. Is there anything I have to do to get my tv card to work?02:04
chiquesmythbuntu-8.10-desktop-proper-i386.iso is cool. I can get itunes trailers, movie times at my local theaters and even see the weather but I can't get my darn tv card to work.02:21
hadsThe bot isn't here :)02:21
hadsThe logs are in /var/log/mythtv/02:21
chiqueshads, you asking me to send you the logs?02:23
hadsI'm suggesting looking through them so you can see what the problem is.02:23
chiqueshads, Oh, OK. I'll check them out02:23
MythbuntuGuest14hello. I installed the new 8.10, and after working out all the kinks I can using available resources, I still find myself unable to see any tv listings.03:44
MythbuntuGuest14is there an easy way to check that my db has has been populated? (my sql from the iso)03:45
Aquahallicevenin' folks03:46
Aquahallichad a jfs storage drive on a mythbuntu 8.04 install and had a motherboard fail... so I move the drive into another machine and setup mythbuntu 8.10 and when I try to mount the jfs drive it won't let me...03:48
MythbuntuGuest14no tv listings, but nothing in my mythtvbackend.log to indicate any kind of failure. is there an other way to check if the db was populated?03:55
YagisanAquahallic, you need to force a fsck on the jfs volume04:14
YagisanAquahallic, sudo touch /forcefsck and reboot should be sufficent04:14
Yagisan<- runs jfs volumes - but not mytyhbuntu04:14
Yagisanthey refuse to mount when "dirty"04:15
Aquahallickewl... lemme give that a whirl04:16
Yagisanman - I have one hell of a hangover today :D04:18

Aquahallicactually about 40 min.04:19

thenetduckHi would anyone be able to help me?09:42
thenetduckas pink floyd would say.... "is there any body out there..."09:43
ZinnPlease 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.09:44
thenetduckI have installed mythubuntu and am trying to connect to my cable via tv tuner but don't know how. I have comcast cable09:45
thenetduckthis is my capture card: 00:08.0 Multimedia video controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Video Capture (rev 02)09:46
thenetduck00:08.1 Multimedia controller: Brooktree Corporation Bt878 Audio Capture (rev 02)09:46
thenetduckis there something I am doing wrong?09:46
hadsThat's a software capture card. I don't know anything about them but you should be able to set it up fine.09:46
thenetduckhads do I connect from my cable box into my mythbox or do I connect directly from the wall?09:47
hadsI don't know, we don't have cable here.09:47
ehazletti keep getting the Database Access Denied with mythweb...  i have run through the INSTALL and changed all passwords to match... can anyone help?17:16
PMantisHi everyone! Happy new year!17:21
PMantisI'm using Mythbuntu 8.10 on the backend w/o X, and 8.10 on the frontends. Since the frontends are only on when I want to watch something, what should I do to properly schedule mythfilldatabase?17:22
tgm4883_laptopPMantis, what do you mean?  mythfilldatabase is run on the backend17:24
PMantisI found a thread that suggested this was configured on the frontend: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=67349017:25
tgm4883_laptopconfigured on the frontend, but run on the backend17:25
PMantistgm4883_laptop: ...and I know it wasn't updating for me :(17:25
PMantisAhh, ok17:25
tgm4883_laptopin the frontend, you are just setting it up in the database17:26
PMantisDoes each frontend have to have the selected?17:26
tgm4883_laptopno, just set it up on one17:26
PMantisCool, thanks. Any advantage/disadvantage to just using cron?17:27
tgm4883_laptopyea, if you do, mythfilldatabase will get jeolous and stab you with a sharpened MCE remote17:28
PMantisOne more question that I can think of right now... On the backend, mythtv is  uid=108(mythtv) gid=117(mythtv) ... on my main frontend, uid=999(mythtv) gid=999(mythtv). This of course causes the NFS volumes for media to have the wrong ownership on the frontend, and requires chmod 666. Should this be?17:30
PMantisActually, my frontend is not on right now, so I think it's:  uid=999(mythfrontend) gid=999(mythfrontend)17:31
rhpot1991_laptoptgm4883_laptop: you do dvd isos right?17:46
tgm4883_laptoprhpot1991_laptop, I used to17:47
tgm4883_laptopPMantis, you probably need to look into changing the UID and GID on the frontend17:48
rhpot1991_laptophaven't in a while then?17:48
tgm4883_laptopnope, I converted everything to save space.17:49
tgm4883_laptopI might have a couple left, whats up?17:49
rhpot1991_laptopI have an issue where they skip a ton during playback on my 2nd backend/frontend17:51
rhpot1991_laptopyet HD recordings don't do the same, and they should be more intensive17:51
rhpot1991_laptopget a lot of NVP buffer errors in the backend, so I prob need to enable  verbose logging17:52
rhpot1991_laptopthinking about killing upnp, seeing if that helps.  If not then I'll try xine and see what that does.17:53
tgm4883_laptopI haven't followed it much, but at one time UPNP was leaky17:55
tgm4883_laptopI've been working on getting fuppes working in order to stream to my 36017:55
rhpot1991_laptopya I'm wondering if I am getting upnp garbage clogging my network17:58
rhpot1991_laptopisos are shared over nfs as well, so I dunno if there is something there I could be looking at17:59
MythbuntuGuest22hello all. Need an easy way to check if my DB was populated when I did the mythbackendfill - I get no listings and I've tried everything solution I can find online.18:53
lagaMythbuntuGuest22: have you connected your video source to your tv card in mythtv-setup? "input connections" it's called.18:55
MythbuntuGuest22laga: didn't realize it had to be connected during setup. I've a bit of "huh?" going on concerning input devices; got a supported capture card but I don't think it an actual "tv" card..19:11
MythbuntuGuest22is there somewhere I can get help on the input devices?19:14
MythbuntuGuest22it's a winfast card with a bt878a and is detected fine but I really see no way it would be able to control the incoming signal for channel change and such.19:19
MythbuntuGuest22you guys do actually control your channels through myth, not just capture the line signal - right?19:45
tonyhellow everyone19:56
chiquesHello everyone,19:58
chiquesI can't get the "Watch TV" option to launch using mythbuntu-8.10-desktop-proper-i386.iso. I've checked the front end log but I can't see any errors pertaning to my tv card. I have a Hauppage BT878. My log is on http://mythbuntu.pastebin.com/m6a9badf5 . Any suggestions?20:00
chiquesaaaargh. xawtv works fine (without audio) but mythtv "Watch TV" doesn't launch any television application. It simply flickers and stays on the Mythtv screen20:31
MythbuntuGuest50is there a difference between a "capture card" and a "tv card", if I both use a (e.g.) bt878 chip?20:38
ericrostany idea why the file types dialog wouldn't save new types?20:42
ericrostin the video settings menu20:42
MythbuntuGuest50for that matter - any reason why permissions set in thunar file manager (as root) don't take?20:43
ericrostwow, some included themes aren't compatible, and it apparently causes that, maybe don't include them?20:48
lagaericrost: oh, neat. it's a bug in the theme? i was getting really mad about that20:53
lagaplease file a bug report at http://bugs.launchpad.net/mythbuntu20:53
ericrostit works fine on the default mythbuntu theme20:56

MythbuntuGuest50so is there an actual "best" pci card for myth - preferably not expensive..?21:01
MythbuntuGuest50!zinn best tv card21:01
ZinnSorry I don't know about zinn best tv card21:01
MythbuntuGuest50!best tv card21:01
ZinnSorry I don't know about best tv card21:01
ericrostI like my hauppage21:01
MythbuntuGuest50does your card do the actual controlling of your channels- like a receiver would?21:02
MythbuntuGuest48I am struggling to get 2 800i capture cards functioning with 9.04 b2.  The card is detected with what I beleive to be proper driver and firmware.  Channel scan is succesful for analog but not digital.  Analog works until attempted channel change.   Any help troubleshooting this is appreciated.21:12
PMantisI'm having trouble with the Netflix plugin. I can browse and add movies to the queue, but when I try to "View Queue", I seein the log:  QObject::connect: Cannot connect (null)::finished(NewsSite*) to MythFlixQueue::slotNewsRetrieved(NewsSite*)21:17
MythbuntuGuest50what please is the difference between the proprietary nvidia driver "173" and "177" which I am prompted to install?21:23
MythbuntuGuest50are those version numbers?21:23
MythbuntuGuest50err- I mean, version as in source control type of version..21:24
entilzhaHey guys! I'm planning to construct myself a HTPC. Preferably based on the Gigabyte GA-MA78GM-S2H. I can't find any recent information on whether this board (and especially the AMD 780G chipset) are supported by Mythbuntu. Any of you have a definitive yes or no on that?21:41
entilzhaoki, g2g for now.22:37
IntuitiveNippleIs there a known issue/config option that causes the Playback OSD to display a channel number that is 1000 less than the actual channel ID?22:48
tritiumAny word on the linux support for the Hauppage WinTV-HVR-2250, which was supposed to be supported by the end of 2008?  (ref: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_HVR-2250)23:33
SHADOW__Xhow do you use atsc with qam and analog on the  225023:34
tritiumSHADOW__X: it's got hybrid tuners23:34
SHADOW__Xthats not the question23:36
SHADOW__Xit has one coax input for the tuners23:36
tritiumThen state your question.23:37
SHADOW__Xit doesnt seem like you would beable to use a atsc antenna and cable from the home unless a combiner was used23:38
tritiumYeah, I think they would both have to be over-the-air sources.23:39
tritiumUnless you didn't mind bringing in cable through the S-Video or composite inputs on the PCI bracket.23:41
tritiumI might go ahead and order one, as I expect it will be supported soon.23:44
SHADOW__Xyeah those seem to be good except that i wish you could use r tuners at once23:45
SHADOW__Xbecause unless i am mistaken23:46
SHADOW__Xyou cant23:46
tgm4883_laptopwhat are we talking about?23:50
SHADOW__Xhvr 225023:51
SHADOW__Xcan you use all the tuners at once23:51
tgm4883_laptopI haven't tested it as I don't have one, but I would guess yes since it has dual tuners and not a hybrid tuner23:52
tritiumI would think you could use two tuners at once, as http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_HVR-2250 describes23:54
tritiumtgm4883_laptop: it's not clear that those cards are yet supported.  It was expected to be supported at the end of 2008.23:55
tgm4883_laptopunfortunatly the hauppauge website seems down, so we can't check for a status update23:57
tritiumAnd this thread hasn't been updated in a while: http://lists-archives.org/video4linux/24216-hvr2250-hvr2200-saa7164-status.html23:59
