Paladineit is installing :)00:34
MythbuntuGuest84hey how long does it typically take on a 160GB IDE Hard Drive to install mythbuntu?03:42
hadsNo idea but it would depends on the other specifications of your system too.03:43
MythbuntuGuest84hrm. seems to be stuck at 5% of the ext3 file system03:43
cMclearnthere. mIRC is easier for me03:47
cMclearnso what is average for an install time?03:47
cMclearnand what should i look at with the install being stuck at 5%?03:47
hadsHow lobg is "stuck"?03:49
hadserm, long03:49
cMclearnbeen sitting on 5% for... 20 mins?03:49
hadsSOunds like too long for 160GB03:50
cMclearnyeah. i kinda figured.03:51
Paladineis it just me or has xmltv been removed from the latest mythbuntu?04:37
tgm4883Paladine, IIRC, you have to select to install it04:38
Paladinewhen I go into video source even though I have run tv_grab_uk_rt --configure and moved the .conf file from ~/.xmltv to ~/.mythtv it is still not picking it up in mythtv setup04:38
Paladineit only gives me SchedulesDirect, EIT or No Grabber04:39
Paladinetgm4883 at which point do I "select to install it"?04:39
hadsDo you have xmltv installed?04:46
hadstv_find_grabbers or whatever it's called is required.04:47
tgm4883Paladine, I believe you select to install it during install.  You can install it with apt though04:47
Paladineit is already installed04:48
Paladinebut I can't get mythtv-setup to see it04:48
Paladinemythtv-setup is only seeing the US paid service or EIT04:49
hadsCheck the logs of mythtv-setup04:56
hadsRun tv_find_grabbers from the command line.04:57
rhpot1991hads: you might be interested in this: http://www.engadget.com/2009/01/12/nvidia-ion-platform-gets-demonstrated-at-ces/05:04
hadsrhpot1991: Yeah cheers, saw the link already :)05:06
hadsLooks sweet05:07
Paladinehads it still isn;t working it just sees DataDirect this is driving me nuts05:17
Paladinetv_find_grabbers finds the UK RT grabber05:17
PaladineI run the grabber and it generates the file05:18
Paladinebut I can't get mythtv-setup or mythfilldatabase to use it05:18
hadsCheck the logs of mythtv-setup05:18
Paladinewhere are those logs?05:21
hadsRun it from the command line05:21
Paladine"tv_find_grabbers exited early or we timed out waiting"05:25
Paladineanyway to change that timeout?05:25
hadsNot sure.05:27
erb_im trying to tunnel my entire GUI (x, mythfrontend, etc) on my laptop so i dont have to plug in a keyboard to the box to do somethings05:29
erb_not sure which processes to kill05:29
erb_and then the command to run to start the xfce back up05:29
erb_never mind05:32
erb_startxfce4 worked fine05:32
erb_without killing anything05:32
Paladineok the only way I could get it to find the tv_grab script for UK was to rm all the other grab scripts from /usr/bin05:36

Lokiaseehello, I have mounted an external folder in /home/test and I filled in in mythbuntu that my movie files are in /home/test, but it gives "no movies".... why????17:12
tgm4883_laptopLokiasee, either A) you didn't scan for movies, or B) mythtv doesn't have permissions to look in that folder17:15
Lokiaseehow do I do A???17:16
tgm4883_laptopin the frontend, you go to Setup > mythvideo > scan for movies (or somethinglike that)17:17
tgm4883_laptopSetup > Video Manager17:18
LokiaseeI dont find that ....17:19
tgm4883_laptopwhich part?  Setup,   or Video Manager?17:19
LokiaseeSetup i can find17:20
Lokiaseethan it says: general, appearence, screen setup, tv settings, media setting, info center, phone settings, mythbuntu17:20
tgm4883_laptopgo up a level17:21
Lokiaseeto where?17:22
tgm4883_laptopok, what screen are you at now17:22
Lokiaseemain: watch tv, media lib, manage rec, info center, optical disks, utils/setp17:23
tgm4883_laptopgo into utils/setup17:23
Lokiaseetheir I find: music tools, video manager, edit keys, setup, mythbuntu logs17:24
tgm4883_laptopdoes video manager look familiar?17:24
tgm4883_laptop(you need to go into video manager)17:24
Lokiaseeaah crap17:25
Lokiaseeyou are right17:25
tgm4883_laptopI usually am ;)17:25
Lokiaseetx a lot17:27
uli__while trying to configure my backend server (using the mythtv-setup) in the second step my DVB card (technisat skystar 2) doesn't get found. (at least i suppose that, i'm getting that message http://img209.imageshack.us/img209/9936/screenshotra3.png though in lspci it shows up...17:28
tgm4883_laptopuli_, I don't know about your card, but if I had to guess, you are missing firmware17:32
Lokiaseeok, now I can watch video's but they are not playing perfectly, like they need to load the whole movie.... how can I help this?17:34
tgm4883_laptopLokiasee, what kind of movies17:38
Lokiaseeits now mplayer -fs -zoom -quiet -vo xv %s as video player, how do I cange this to vlc? I think vlc is faster to play?17:39
tgm4883_laptopgoogle mythtv vlc17:43
Lokiaseemovies that are on my NAS. I will now test it on another pc17:53
uli__(the not working DVB Card) it used to work yesterday... but suddenly when i tried to scan for the channels a new window appeared and the scan progress bar didnt move. so i went back to the capture cards step and then i recognized it wasnt working anymore...18:01
nomad_czHi. Is it possible to use Mythbuntu as a live CD ? I mean without installing backend at all - everything from CD. Thanks.18:19
tgm4883_laptopnomad_cz, no, live cd is frontend only18:25
nomad_cztgm4883_laptop:  I see. Thanks.18:25
Nixonhey, what's a digital/analog pci capture card that will pretty much just work plug and play with mythtv? is usb better? I've googled, and tested, have a hauppauge 1800 but it only does digital, analog is broken18:42
NixonI want 3 more capture devices in my machine and just can't seem to find anything that says this is the one to get18:43
Nixonwould prefer dual tuners digital/analog18:43
Nixonlet me ask this another way? I want 2 digital tuners, and 3 svideo audio inputs, what's the best way to go about that?18:51
Nixonhow about a link to some information that isn't from 2004?19:02
Shadow_MNixon, you could do 2 hvr1600s then just look for one for svideo19:02
Nixondoes the 1600 work cleanly, what I've seen said like not explicitly supported19:03
NixonI was going to buy one, but everytime I read another article I get scared off.. LOL, what do you use?19:04
Nixonthe research is burning me out quickly19:04
Shadow_Mi have 2 hvr1600  my friend has 219:05
Nixondid you have to do any setup? or was it easy, compile a kernel?19:06
Shadow_Mlol and they work on mythtv and they work otb in 8.1019:06
Nixonnow your talking my language! so they i stick one of those in and they are completely recognised by 8.1019:06
Shadow_Min mythtv on mythbuntu 8.10 itll work19:07
Nixonthat's what I'm running19:07
Nixonfinally someone to tell me what to do... I've had that card in a shopping cart on 6 different occasions19:08
Nixondoes the remote work?19:08
Shadow_Mwell i have a server running 10 and one running .04 and 4  needs alittle more setup but 10 is detected19:08
Shadow_Mi got the mce edition so its a mce remote its well worth it19:09
Nixonok good deal,  that was the one I was stearing towards before19:09
tgm4883_laptopShadow_M, may I remind you that there is a 7.10 and an 8.1019:09
Shadow_Mbut in  our convo we where talking about 8 series i am on a n810 numbers need alittlwe more typing tgm4883_laptop19:10
tgm4883_laptopI stand corrected then19:10
tgm4883_laptopcarry on19:10
* Nixon is a fairly new install, fired it up about a week before christmas, now I want to finish it19:10
Shadow_Mno its fine i do agree with you tgm4883_laptop  its just the whole not a real keyboard thing i do love th n810 though if you dont know what it is its a small device roguhly a pda size that runs maemo linux which is based on debian it can even run ubuntu19:12
Shadow_Mnixon well if there are more questions fire away19:12
Nixonprobably not today with questions, my real questions were involving finding the input cards to complete the install19:13
Nixonwell there is one more, can you think of a reason to not use the analog 6 channel output from the sound card to drive amps for speakers?19:14
Nixonjust do away with the stereo receiver19:14
NixonI haven't really seen where a mythbuntu box has been used as an a/v receiver19:16
Nixonis that like a no no?19:16
tgm4883_laptopwell I haven't done any research on that myself, but I would think you would get much better sound quality using a receiver19:17
tgm4883_laptopalso, you might not be able to get the sound loud enough from your mythbox19:17
tgm4883_laptopbecause you receiver has an amplifier19:17
tgm4883_laptopunless you have powered speakers19:18
Nixonwell... no. no I currently have a 5 channel amp and a pre amp av receiver19:18
Nixonso I was going to trash the pre amp a/v receiver as it's dolby surround sound era, mono rear19:19
Nixonand a powered sub19:19
NixonI can't think of a reason why I can't do this, but I haven't found it done on google19:19
tgm4883_laptopI think you are better off buying a new receiver19:19
Nixonis there something bad?19:19
tgm4883_laptopif you do that, you will need powered speakers19:20
tgm4883_laptopI don't know your setup, so I can't really comment on that19:20
NixonI have a standalone amp 5 channel what is that brand, uhhh adcom19:20
* tgm4883_laptop shrugs19:20
tgm4883_laptopsee if it works?19:21
* tgm4883_laptop has to run to work now19:21
ZinnHave an idea?  Submit it here and see what other people think  http://brainstorm.ubuntu.com/mythbuntu19:21
Nixonwell thanks for the input, I think I am just too tired to explain myself today19:21
Nixonwhat's wrong with the ubuntu website today, it's slow, the forums are down etc?19:26
m4f0xHello!  Is there anyone here currently using MythUbuntu to stream live TV?19:27
MythbuntuGuest79!nick bigjuan20:09
ZinnSorry I don't know about nick bigjuan20:09
MythbuntuGuest79Hey, I've got an odd question...running mythbuntu 8.10.  Whenever the box boots, firefox and console both open.  I can close them without issue, but I'd rather not have them load automatically.  I've checked the autorun programs from the menu (where it'll load the network daemon, restricted drivers, etc) and neither program are listed.20:10
MythbuntuGuest79Any ideas?20:10
Shadow_Mi love when people quit before they hear something20:30
EnoxCan anyone assist me with a problem watching live TV with a HVR-1600?  I'm getting "Not ivtv driver???" MPEGRec(/dev/video0) Error: select timeout - ivtv driver has stopped responding20:41
neoneddyI bought that card..  It hen took it back for the20:57
neoneddyerr.. for a dual tuner card I forget the number.. iwant to say 35020:58
neoneddyI use an HD homerun for the HD content20:58
Shadow_Menox what os do you have21:10

Shadow_Mthe problem your having sounds like the problem that i have with he hvr 180021:12
