tgm4883_laptopfirefly2442, do you have an antenna?00:10
firefly2442tgm4883_laptop: nope00:11
tgm4883_laptopthen don't use broadcast ;)00:11
tgm4883_laptopwhich is what us-bcast stands for00:11
firefly2442ahh ok, I thought maybe it had something to do with the video format00:12
rhpot1991anyone recording NBC tonight,  you should run a mythfilldatabase refresh00:12

rhpot1991tgm4883_laptop: could be from me junking up my automagic db filling00:16
tgm4883_laptopI don't see a 15 minute earl though00:16
rhpot1991I noticed it checked  on my 2nd client and turned it off thinking this backend doesn't need to fill the db my master does00:16
rhpot1991turns out thats systemwide00:16
rhpot1991so I didn't grab new data for 2 weeks00:16
rhpot1991tgm4883_laptop: at 8 should be the speech then at 8:15 an earl rerun00:17

tritiumsuperm1: working on building hdhomerun_config_gui, and running into a few issues.  If you have time, please ping me.02:18
ChaorainI'm trying to install compiz02:52
ChaorainIt says that Xgl is not found02:52
ChaorainHow can I install this02:53
superm1tritium, ping i'm here02:53
superm1tritium, what's the details?02:53
superm1try to ping me with details in the future in case we dont catch each other02:53
Chaorainis xgl the same as glx?02:56
mycosys_mythHey again guys :) just checked etc/X11/xorg.conf and it is empty :S is this normal on an mythbuntu box? is the setup data elsewhere or something like that?02:56
superm1no02:56
superm1dont use xgl Chaorain02:56
superm1compiz shouldn't depend on Xgl02:56
superm1thanks rhpot1991. it appears my myth remembered this time02:56
superm1beats me what happened two weeks ago or last week or what not02:56
tritiumsuperm1: thanks.  Please see the libintl.h errors here: http://paste.ubuntu.com/105403/02:57
ChaorainOh I needed sudo compiz02:57
superm1tritium, hm libintl.h comes from libc6-dev02:58
tritiumyes02:58
superm1so something is wrong with gettext?02:59
Chaorainhow do I add more workspaces with compiz?02:59
Chaorainso I can use the desktop cube02:59
tritiumsuperm1: I'm uncertain.  Perhaps before I get too far with this, I should try building on jaunty.02:59
tritiumLet me see how that goes before I bother you.03:00
superm1Chaorain, that's offtopic for this room.  #ubuntu, or #ubuntu-bling i think03:00
Chaorainok03:00
superm1tritium, yeah build with jaunty is a better idea03:00
tritiumSorry for the premature request for help.  As far as build-deps, it only needed libgtk2.0-dev and libglib2.0-dev -- not too bad.03:01
tritiumThanks, superm1.03:03
superm1no prob tritium03:04
mycosys_mythsuperm1: have seen some howtos etc from you - am on MythBuntu 8.1 - is xorg.conf SUPPOSED to be an empty file all of a sudden, have the details it uses moved elsewhere of something?03:05
superm1mycosys_myth, it's supposed to be more empty03:05
superm1more details are autodetected now03:05
mycosys_mythit was completely empty03:06
superm1well that's not right03:06
superm1dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg will refill it i think03:06

mycosys1!streaming12:05
ZinnSorry I don't know about streaming12:05
BlueSteelthese take the form of: http://iiradio.iinet.net.au:8011 etc.. What is the most efficient way to play these in MythTV12:06
BlueSteeli have DVB-t working as well as viewing avi/mkv, but I would like to be able to play some internet radio with this machine, as this will also not be counted towards my monthly internet quota (I live in australia)12:07

duffrecordsdoes anyone know what the internal video player for Live TV is in Mythbuntu?  is it mplayer or something else?18:21
duffrecordsthe default one, I mean18:21
superm1duffrecords, it's mythtv itself18:49
=== N1X0N is now known as Nixon
duffrecordssuperm1: I'm having trouble using XvMC with my NVIDIA card.  if I were to recompile the mythtv player from svn is there one package I would need to build or all the mythtv packages?19:36
superm1duffrecords, XvMC works with the distro packages19:37
superm1duffrecords, i've got it working on one of my machines19:37
superm1duffrecords, but if you still would like to use SVN packages for a different reason, use the ones at http://www.mythbuntu.org/auto-builds .  They were last built last night19:38
superm1that way you have all of the packaging and organization that goes with them19:38
duffrecordssuperm1: I think I'll try that.  because when I use XvMC, it causes mythfrontend to freeze.  I tried using it to play a file with mplayer and it said "the selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec"19:53
superm1duffrecords, just mythfrontend freezes?19:53
superm1or the whole system19:53
duffrecordswhen I look at processes with the top command, the CPU% of mythfrontend shoots up close to 100% and is unresponsive.  I have to kill it over ssh.19:56
duffrecordsso the system is still useable, just not mythfrontend19:57
superm1is there a log from mythfrontend.log?19:57
duffrecordsI'm not at home right now, but I retrieved part of the log from yesterday.  I removed a lot of the motion_type messages: http://mythbuntu.pastebin.com/d2bcf4f2c21:15
superm1duffrecords, so a very damaged mpeg2 file then21:31
superm1you should try to improve your signal if possible or clean that file before trying the XvMC stuff with it i think21:31
duffrecordsyeah, my signal is generally about 2.4dB.  but it records HD fine.  I can record a HD show and watch it later on a client in the other room with a better video card and processor, but not on the machine that runs the backend21:36
duffrecordsI actually bought an amplified antenna and stuck it in a window facing the general direction of the broadcasting tower but the improvement was marginal21:43
duffrecordslike 0.2dB21:43
superm1duffrecords, well XvMC is very very finicky about these types of things22:02
superm1try to do an mpeg2->mpeg2 transcode on the file22:02
superm1it will clean it up, and seeing if XvMC handles it better22:02
duffrecordsis that something that I need to run in the frontend's menu, or via the terminal?22:03
perilousapricotwhen I try to install nvidia-glx-new, apt-get tries to uninstall mythbuntu-desktop and all the xserver-xorg packages22:06
perilousapricotis that normal?22:06
perilousapricots/nvidia-glx-new/nvidia-glx/17322:06
superm1duffrecords, from the recordings menu22:09
superm1perilousapricot, i believe 173 isn't supported in 8.10?22:10
superm1nvidia didn't rev the driver for the new X server /me thinks22:10
perilousapricotsuperm1, there's packages for it in jaunty, even. the different nvidia-glx-* drivers support different hardware, I have to have 173 to run my hardware22:10
superm1perilousapricot, yeah i know there are packages for it, but that's just so the framework is there if there is a rev'd driver released22:11
duffrecordsI seem to remember when upgrading my laptop to 8.10 I had to use a different nvidia package than I did before.  I think they bumped my card down into the legacy category this time around22:13
duffrecordsdo you have any nvidia driver installed at the moment?22:18
duffrecordssuperm1: regarding the ´╗┐mpeg2->mpeg2 transcode, are you talking about the post recording options when scheduling?22:22
superm1duffrecords, you can do it for an existing recording22:22
superm1hit m on the recording in the menu22:22
superm1duffrecords, i've got nvidia 180 installed on a few machines and 177 on others22:22
duffrecordsI don't see any transcode options in the menu that pops up22:29
duffrecordsjust change group filter/view/password, add to playlist, and help22:30
superm1its in jobs i think22:36
superm1try hitting right instead of m maybe22:36
dschiehi #, i'm new to mythtv. my setup seems ok, i can watch and record live-tv. it looks like planned recordings get recordet, but dont appear in the frontend after this. the file exists an can be played externally.23:27
dschiethe record is still shown in the task list, but the task says something like "done...." (german frontend. text is "Fertig....")23:28
duffrecordssuperm1: that was it.  I had to press right and select "job options."  I'll see how the transcoded file plays when I get home tonight.  right now it's 4.4GB23:30
dschieswitched to english frontend. it  says " Job: flag commercials    status: finished (my.."  .... no idea what my..... means...23:32
dschieok, i scaled down the fonts. (my... was (mythbox), the name of my box. but still no idea why the recording is not listed in "watch recordings"23:35
dschieok, got it. had a group filter in watch recordings active. but why is it still in the job-list?23:46
jontheniceguyGood {$localtime} to you all! I wonder whether anyone can help explain why my mythbackend keeps stopping on me? I have a machine which was running Ubuntu 8.10. I have a backend machine which has been converted using the mythtv-control-center application, then a front-end dedicated Mythbuntu 8.10 machine. Can you suggest where to start looking? I'm reasonably proficient with the command line, but this keeps eluding 23:50
hadsjontheniceguy: I'd start checking the logs;23:55
hads!logs23:55
ZinnMythTV logs are stored in /var/log/mythtv/   You can use mythbuntu-log-grabber from the Applications menu or via command line to automatically post the most relevant logs to our pastebin.23:55
