chiquesIs there anyone here to help me out?01:15
mnemonic76Ahh, thanks... I think I have made some progress... I will let you know.01:19
mnemonic76I just got a trial membershib on schedulesdirect, and am setting up the backend.01:19
tgm4883_laptop!ask | chiques01:25
Zinnchiques: 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.01:25
mnemonic76Ok, can you guys look at this? http://mythbuntu.pastebin.com/dafb3ccb01:36
mnemonic76I seem to have the database set up, and I have a trial membership on schedulesdirect. I think it downloaded and filled the db but this output seems to indicate otherwise.01:37
mnemonic76if I start the frontend as my normal user or sudo, I get the same... the 'watch tv' button just blinks.01:38
NeoMatrixJRNeed some help if anyone can.  Running Mythbuntu 8.10 with the pinnacle 800i (HD card w/ ATSC/NTSC/QAM/FM) with a nVidia FX5500 AGP card.  When running nVidia 173.x driver I get no HD video.  When running no propriatary driver I get HD video, but it's very choppy.  any ideas?01:49
NeoMatrixJRmoving question to mythtv-users...01:54
chiquestgm4883_laptop, Zinn I asked a question hours ago and I didn't receive a response. I was just wondering if I was doing something wrong.02:28
rhpot1991_laptopZinn is a bot02:29
rhpot1991_laptop!blank% | chiques02:30
Zinnchiques: If you try to watch tv and are greeted with a blank screen and a return to the menu then please check the permissions on your recording directory.  It should be owned by mythtv:mythtv, have permissions of 775, and not be inside your home directory02:30
rhpot1991_laptopthat may be your issue02:30
chiquesrhpot1991_laptop, I am unable to get the "Watch TV" selection to perform any task. When I select it it simply flashes the screen and stays at the Mythtv main menu. I've tested with xawtv and my video feed comes in fine (without audio but I'll worry about that later).02:32
chiquesSorry rhpot1991_laptop I meant that for Zinn02:33
rhpot1991_laptopZinn is a bot he only responds to commands02:33
rhpot1991_laptopread what he said, it tells you how to fix that issue02:33
hadsAnd the logs02:36
chiquesrhpot1991_laptop, hads oh, sorry. Yeah, I'm a newb.02:53
chiquesrhpot1991_laptop, hads I think I found the problem with the Watch TV flashing with no video. First I had to name my video source then I had to define it. It's a bit wierd, I thought all of this was automatically configured. Guess not.02:54
chiquesNow it's time to troubleshoot the audio problem02:54
fuxxyI'm trying to set up mythtv-setup on my headless file server using SSH X forwarding. The GUI comes up, and instead of text, I get rows of square boxes where text should be. ANyone know what's up?04:02
rhpot1991tgm4883_laptop: ran a bunch of tests04:02
rhpot1991disabling upnp didn't help04:02
rhpot1991neither did changing the playback profile (still going to look at this more)04:02
rhpot1991using xine instead seems to solve it though04:02
superm1SHADOW__X, the US repo will be hopefully fixed next week when I get access to it again04:19
chiquesAudio fixed. It was a connection problem. My audio jack is beginning to be be a little oxidized.04:29
Shadow___Xhi i am having trouple achieving the samba share that i want04:51
Shadow___Xi would like to have a user access a main share but only give them read permission until they reach a directory that is theirs then they can have read write04:51
superm1so set the samba permissions to read/write, and then set unix permissions to read for everything you want only readable04:55
superm1Shadow___X, &^04:55
Shadow___Xthanks superm104:58
MythbuntuGuest29Happy New Year. I have Ubuntu 8.10 running and would like to add mythtv stuff. The link under "Add to Ubuntu" at www.mythbuntu.org doesn't exist. How can I add mythbuntu to my system? Thanks a lot for your help.04:59
superm1MythbuntuGuest29, visiting http://mythbuntu.org/download/getmythbuntu.php should work for you05:01
superm1if not, you don't have apturl installed05:01
superm1you can just go into synaptic, or adept and install mythbuntu-desktop instead too05:02
Shadow___Xsuperm1: how do i check permisions i know chown changes who owns it05:02
Shadow___Xbut i am not the most familiar with the other unix commands05:02
MythbuntuGuest29To be more specific, the link under "Installing" under "Add to Ubuntu" doesn't work. So how can I "add all Mythbuntu roles to an existing Ubuntu box"?05:03
superm1MythbuntuGuest29, that link goes to the URL i pointed you to05:05
superm1MythbuntuGuest29, so once you install mythbuntu-desktop you will have the mythbuntu control centre available05:05
superm1Shadow___X, ls -alh will show you all files and permissions with human readable sizes05:06
Shadow___Xshould the directories be owned by the samba user for RW05:07
Shadow___Xread write05:07
superm1Shadow___X, that's up to you.  you can do it by group instead if you want05:10
=== N1X0N is now known as Nixon
Shadow___Xso chown -R user folder/05:15
Shadow___Xbecause i did that but i changed the group i guess05:15
Shadow___Xi just did sudo chmod -R 764 folder/05:20
Shadow___Xand now in thunar i cant open the directory although i am in the right group different user05:20
Shadow___Xany idea superm105:21
Shadow___Xwhen i goto properties of the folder in thunar it says the folder permissions are inconsistent you may not be able to work with files in this folder05:22
Shadow___Xhey superm1 i am having an issue with permissions windows side05:43
Shadow___Xi made sure all the permisions or correct in chmod and chown05:43
Shadow___Xreloaded samba05:43
Shadow___Xand restarted it05:43
Shadow___Xbut on this windows machine when i right click the folder the read only attribute it highlighted as if something within it is readonly05:44
Shadow___Xno check but still highlighted05:44
Shadow___Xand i cannot make changes to the folder although the user i am using has owner ship over the file05:45
Shadow___Xwhen i try to rename something or create or delate a file i get the error message that the drive is write protected05:45
Shadow___Xi am going to see if a reboot helps05:45
Shadow___Xsuperm1: same thing05:56
Shadow___Xon the windows machine05:56
bmathisim getting an extremely long shutdown time for mythbuntu.... any suggestions?08:26
ushillsWhat is the latest version of mythtv supported by mythbuntu and where can I get the latest release, i'm having a few issues and have been advised to update beyond 0.21.12:29
lagathe latest version of mythtv supported by mythbuntu are the almost-weekly builds of the release-0-21-fixes tree12:37
lagasoon, there will be trunk builds12:37
ushillsHow can i update to the latest version, i use mythbuntu 8.04 lts at the moment is it worth going to 8.10?12:39
lagathe weekly builds should have the same version for hardy and intrepid. if your 8.04 install is working well, i wouldn't upgrade12:40
ushillsI'm having a few problems with recordings jumping and skipping on mythtv, this usually happens after the backend has been up for a few days and the RAM fills to 98%.  Recording are totally unwatchable, at other times recordings are great. any ideas12:40
=== N1X0N is now known as Nixon
superm1SHADOW__X, then you don't have the appropriate samba write bits set15:31
fuxxyI'm setting up a dedicated frontend using mythbuntu, I already have a backend on the network. Which mythbuntu cd should I use, Desktop or Alternate?17:21
lagaalternate is not supported17:26
tgm4883_laptopand by not supported, he means it will eat your face off17:27
fuxxyBut won't the desktop by default install a backend, too?17:27
lagayou can select that during install17:27
fuxxysorry, "by default" I mean "Force you to install"17:27
tgm4883_laptopfuxxy, using the desktop ISO, select an "advanced install"17:28
tgm4883_laptopit's in the installation manual, which is a great thing.  The guy that wrote it was really overachieving when he did it ;)17:28
lagaso i guess you didn't write it?17:30
tgm4883_laptopI did not ;)17:31
tgm4883_laptopIIRC, it was some guy that used to go by the name of gardengnome17:32
lagai didn't write it17:32
lagai don't think so?17:32
tgm4883_laptopthe mythbuntu installation manual?17:33
tgm4883_laptopwas it a virgin birth?17:33
lagayou know, there are other people in the team :)17:33
lagaprolly davemorris17:33
tgm4883_laptopon the first day, superm1 said "Let there be an installation manual"17:34
tgm4883_laptopand there was an installation manual17:34
tgm4883_laptopyea but you are the team lead, so you get to take credit for all the manual stuff17:34
tgm4883_laptopjust like superm1 gets to take credit for all the mythbuntu stuff and foxbuntu gets to take all the credit for slacking off17:35
tgm4883_laptopyou know, if we keep using superm1's name in everyday conversation like this, he will come back to his name highlighted 3500 times but nobody will have actually pinged him17:36
tgm4883_laptopi'm amused easily ;)17:36
lagawhich is actually good17:36
lagabecause pings are annoying17:36
tgm4883_laptopespecially contentless pings ;)17:37
lagaping tgm4883_laptop17:40
tgm4883_laptoplaga, pong17:40
lagaprolly gonna push some trunk builds tonight17:40
lagaonce i get -fixes working17:40
tgm4883_laptop-fixes is broke?17:40
tgm4883_laptopdo you know when superm1 will be back so he can fix the us repo17:42
superm1i'm getting back at the start of next week17:42
superm1hopefully it's something silly with what broke17:43
lagatgm4883_laptop: just some patches17:43
lagayeah, no worries17:43
tgm4883_laptopsuperm1, sounds good17:43
tgm4883_laptopi'll update the topic when you push tonight17:44
lagaregarding trunk?17:44
tgm4883_laptopI know people were asking about it for the last week or so and wanted a topic update17:45
lagasorry, life's been a bit rough :)17:45
tgm4883_laptopthats cool, I blame superm1 anyway ;)17:45
fuxxysuperm1 would know what to do17:48
lagaoh, this is the users channel17:48
tgm4883_laptopwe will have to just men in black everyone here and make them forget what they saw17:49
* fuxxy has quit (Connection reset by peer)17:50
* tgm4883_laptop needs a new web host17:51
lagaokay, new mythplugins is pushed, let's hope it'll work this time17:52
* tgm4883_laptop crosses fingers17:52
superm1laga, maybe we should get someone to set up an sbuild for all to use for these test builds w/ ccache and all17:53
superm1rather than waiting for PPAs etc17:53
lagawhat test builds?17:54
superm1somewhere to dput, and then ssh and run sbuild17:54
lagathese are not test builds17:54
lagathese are real life builds which fail ;)17:54
lagaas i said, no worries17:54
lagai just need to learn to check the patches17:54
superm1yeah i forget to do that sometimes too, but luckily local builds catch them17:55
Crewsr3_1I have a fresh install of Mythubuntu 8.10 with a Geforce 7300 GT and I want to hook it up to my SDTV with the s-video out.  I went into the nvidia x server settings and the twin view option is greyed out, I have not been able to find anything in the forms that worked, please help! ;(18:19
troy_sCrewsr3: Have you put the option into your xorg.conf?18:36
troy_sCrewsr3_1: Your xorg.conf is where you would need to have that option enabled.  Let me snag a link...18:36
Crewsr3troy_s, whit the move away from xorg.conf I was not sure if that worked anymore18:36
Crewsr3_1sorry I have two boxes running and two irc's runnning, this is the one on my mythbox18:37
troy_sCrewsr3_1: Well... it's always like law -- lower law cannot overrule higher court law.  In this case, xorg.conf is the Supreme court.18:37
Crewsr3_1what do I need to change in my xorg18:37
troy_sCrewsr3_1: ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/177.78/README/chapter-13.html18:37
troy_sCrewsr3_1: That is about the only tried and true surefire method that I know of to make certain Twinvew / dual head will work.18:38
troy_sCrewsr3_1: But feel comfortable before doing it as you may be using nano / vi / emacs from the command line to fix your xorg.18:38
troy_sCrewsr3_1: If you bzork it, you will only have a terminal.18:38
Crewsr3_1troy_s, let me give it a shot with nano18:39
troy_sCrewsr3_1: With the newer layout however, adding the "Option "TwinView"" might be enough to enable it.18:39
troy_sCrewsr3_1: Make sure you put that in the right stanza.18:39
troy_sCrewsr3_1: If memory serves me correctly, it's in the Device section.18:39
Crewsr3_1troy_s, stanza?18:39
troy_sCrewsr3_1: Stanza == block of script / options / code18:40
troy_sCrewsr3_1: You MAY be able to use the graphical tweaks if you have that option in there... you might not need to do anything else.18:40
troy_sdogs call.18:41
Crewsr3_1troy_s, let me restart x and see if this worked18:42
Crewsr3_1troy_s, ok, I tried just typing "nvidia-xconfig --twinview" into the cli and then I restarted X.  Well this did not work so I'm looking at xorg.conf and the chapter said to add an Option line in the devices section.  Is this diffrent from the "inputdevice" section?18:49
troy_sCrewsr3_1: I can't honestly remember... there should be plenty of sample xorgs out in Googleville.18:53
Crewsr3_1thanks for your help, I'm going to restart x again lets see if this does it18:54
troy_sCrewsr3_1: This is an add on PCI card I take it?18:54

=== Bucket is now known as DiscoTech
neoneddyI added the tuner as an input.. worked great actually in 8.10 .. but after a reboot it shows those channels blacked out21:36
DiscoTechhey guys. just a quick question. Mythbuntu is basically a distro of Ubuntu with MythTV pre-installed on it?21:36
DiscoTechso i don'tneed the Ubuntu Desktop disc then?21:37
tgm4883_laptopDiscoTech, correct21:37
DiscoTechyay. now to find a tuner card with in and out, as well as a IR receiver21:37
DiscoTechoh, not to me?21:38
DiscoTechoh, does MythTV connect online to download updated TV guides?21:39
DiscoTechand if so, does it work for Shaw in Canada?21:39
neoneddyYes it does.. use schedules direct I beleive21:40
tgm4883_laptopDiscoTech, $20 US/year21:40

neoneddyI had to do that when I went from s-video to vga .. booted fine in vga then no signal from vga or DVI when in X21:50

neoneddyDiscoTech : I got a dual tuner card cheap.. a Hapanauge 350  Ithink ...21:53
neoneddyit wil ldo the s-video out as well  Ithink21:53
tgm4883_laptopthe 350 isn't a dual tuner21:53
tgm4883_laptopthe 500 is, but it doesn't do video out21:53
neoneddy650 then?21:54
rhpot1991_laptop350 output is overrated IMO21:54
DiscoTechi can't get the 350 from my supplier anymore21:54
tgm4883_laptopif there is a 650, its a digital tuner and doesn't do video out either21:54
rhpot1991_laptopDiscoTech: most of the happauge analog tuners are hard to find now21:55
neoneddyhmm... I forget what one I have. but it's a hanpanauge and has dual analog tuners21:55
DiscoTechi can do a 500. but it's like $20021:55

DiscoTechthey've got a 15021:57
DiscoTechhey would a USB based tv tuner work just as well as an internal one with myth tv?22:04
neoneddyI have no experience.. but I don't see why not22:09
neoneddyI know the big thing is hardware mpeg encoding22:09
DiscoTechwould anyone know where i would get drivers for an ASUS My Cinema-P7131?22:14
glitchHey, I just did a fresh install of mythbuntu 8.10 and when i run mythtv-setup I get the message that no uPnP backends are found, and then it won't login to the mysql server.  do I have to create a mysql user for mythtv to use?23:03
=== glitch is now known as glitch003
neoneddyAnyone had any experience with the HD homerun and the tuner not showing up on reboot of mythtv23:33
lagai think that's a race condition between the backend and the network coming up too early23:34
lagai think there are forum reports..23:34
lagabut AFAIR, that particular issue has been fixed23:35
