neoneddyQuestion, best graphics card under $100 for HD playback on mythbuntu?02:45
neoneddyI have an nVidia right now.. but some BD rips play back at 1/2 speed02:48
neoneddyspecificly transformers and the dark knight02:48
neoneddyor this not a graphics card problem at all02:49
neoneddynot a graphics card problem?02:50
neoneddycurse these one word answers :-)02:50
neoneddynew question: common culprits for HD playback problems?  it's a dual core x64 AMD system, 2bg memory, nvidia 5200 or higher graphics card02:52
neoneddyreally?... I'02:53
neoneddyI'm not sure on the speed right now, but I figured it would be good02:53
hadsEasy to check. Play video and look at CPU usage.02:54
neoneddywhat's the best way to do that via command line?02:54
neoneddyahh right02:54
neoneddystandy by02:55

bobbob1016I'm only getting stereo over spdif with "speaker-test -c 6", can anyone help me get 5.1?  Here's my .asound.rc http://pastebin.ca/132332703:02
neoneddylooks like mplayer plays the content fine, Internal players seems to be the one choking on it.. any switches for internal?03:14
neoneddynew question, anyone know how to update to the nightly builds of internal player?03:19
oobe i didnt know there was one05:10
oobeneoneddy, you can try xvmc if you current card supports it05:11
oobexvmc does not support 8xxx series but there is a new thing called VDPAU which apparently does05:11
oobeits experimental05:12
oobethe above things i mention take the load of the cpu and makes the GPU do a lot of the work decoding video05:12
tritiumoobe: experimental in mythtv, you must mean?  nvidia's latest drivers do support vdpau05:13
oobeyes that is correct05:13
oobealso mplayer svn supports it05:13
oobebut not stable AFAIK05:14
oobeVDPAU is only available in trunk version of mythtv05:14
oobeso suprisingly neoneddy maybe be better off getting a very cheap 6XXX or 7XXX and using xvmc till later on05:15
oobelol im responding 1 hr and 45 since his last question05:16
neoneddyI'm here :-).. been playing wii05:16
neoneddyOk what is xvmc now?05:17
oobegoogle xvmc05:17
oobefirst hit should be mythtv wiki05:17
neoneddyyou know, I had a feel you might say that.. this is a linux based IRC after all, but come on, you mentioned it :-) .. can't bait and switch like that.05:18
oobeno really i gave you all the info you need05:19
oobei even told you what it does05:20
oobebasically its pretty easy to setup if you have a supported GPU05:21
oobewhat is your nvidia card05:21
oobemodel number05:21
neoneddyI'm not even sure off hand...  cna I tell from the command line somehow?05:21
neoneddymy mythtv box is in a cabnit05:22
oobeyeah let me think05:22
neoneddyyes, that's it :-)05:22
oobecat /etc/X11/xorg.conf | grep BoardName05:23
oobethat might shed some light05:23
neoneddynothing there..05:23
neoneddyhttp://albertomilone.com/nvidia_scripts1.html  this look right ?05:23
hishHi all05:24

oobei mean can05:26
oobejust makes it a bit less labourous05:26
neoneddyI'm having some trouble installing envy with apt-get05:26
hishphp problem?05:26
oobebut also downloads and extra 20 30 megs of stuff you will never need for anything else05:27
MythbuntuGuest72installing 8.10 fresh, configuring the backend states it cannot log into the database.  There is no mythconverg created during install.  how to proceede05:27
oobei think its called envyng now05:27
oobeMythbuntuGuest72, did you do a custom install05:27
oobeadvanced i mean05:27
neoneddyeither of these sounds right "However the following packages replace it:05:28
neoneddy  envyng-qt envyng-core05:28
neoneddy" ?05:28
oobehish, do you mean mythweb doesnt really load the page05:28
MythbuntuGuest72no, not that I know of, this is my 1st time installin the 64bit05:28
hishit just shows the directory05:28
hishand files05:28
oobeenvyng-qt is gui and depends on core yes install em both if you want envy05:29
neoneddythis is all new to me05:29
MythbuntuGuest72i did not see any options like in the 32bit version05:30
neoneddythanks obe, you're my only hope.05:30
oobeMythbuntuGuest72, do you have mythtv-database  installed05:30
oobeneoneddy, np05:30
MythbuntuGuest72just mysql and information_schema05:30
oobeneoneddy, this will tell you what your card is it did on my system glxinfo | grep  renderer05:31
neoneddyso now envy will configure a different graphics drivers that will render video better?05:32
hishbtw oobe, I this is not an ubuntu install...it's actually archlinux05:32
MythbuntuGuest72oobe, is there a way around this?05:32
oobehish try #mythtv-users05:32

oobeMythbuntuGuest72, aptitude search  mythtv-database05:33
oobeif its not installed then install it05:33
oobesudo apt-get install  mythtv-database05:33
neoneddyoobe, I ran envy in text mode and it looks like I have the newest nvidia driver installed already.  Maybe I'm confused.05:35
neoneddyoobe, it's not a huge deal, I need to go in and look at my hard ware here anyway.05:35
MythbuntuGuest72i   mythtv-database                                                        - A personal video recorder application (database)05:36
MythbuntuGuest72it was installed05:36
oobeneoneddy, this will tell you what your card is it did on my system glxinfo | grep  renderer05:38
oobe glxinfo | grep  renderer05:38
oobesorry i dont think my typing was to clear05:39

oobeglxinfo | grep  renderer05:41
oobeOpenGL renderer string: GeForce 8400 GS/PCI/SSE2/3DNOW05:41
oobethat is what mine looked like05:41
MythbuntuGuest72is there a way to force the install of mythconverge?05:42
oobeanyway you want a 6xxx or 7XXX series or even 5XXX to support xvmc05:42
ooberead up on it05:42
oobeif you have a supported card already try it05:42
oobeif not thats the way to go for playing back HD on the cheap05:42
neoneddysu I get an authentication error05:43
neoneddyhowever I cna sudo fine05:43
oobeMythbuntuGuest72, have you tried setting stuff up from mythbuntu-control-centre05:44
neoneddyoobe thanks for the help.. I just had mplayer play my Dark Knight goodness05:45
MythbuntuGuest72no luck05:45
oobeneoneddy, thats an ok comprimise05:45
oobeMythbuntuGuest72, did you do the test connect to database05:45
oobetest sql connection05:46
oobedoes your mysql.txt have your mysql info put in correctly05:47
oobelike port number05:48
MythbuntuGuest72I tried, but connect failed because the db does not exsist05:48
oobeok you can do it the old fashioned way but that package should of installed it05:48
MythbuntuGuest72I am running back through the setup one more time05:49
MythbuntuGuest72when it gives me 4 options to install, do I leave all of them unselected to preform typical install?05:50
oobeMythbuntuGuest72, http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/User_Manual:Initial_Installation#Setup_mysql_database_mythconverg05:52
MythbuntuGuest88oobe, can you send the install link again?05:53
oobeif you havent already reinstalled yet or started try this first05:53
oobemc.sql is already on your system05:54
oobejust not in  the same path05:54
oobetype locat mv.sql05:54
oobetype locate mc.sql05:54
oobeit will take less then 10 mins to test and if it works it will have saved you time05:55
MythbuntuGuest88what are the steps?05:55
oobeits on the page05:56
oobethat i gave05:56
oobei used google to find it so i guess thats the first step05:57
MythbuntuGuest88I am already installing, but this will be my 3rd time.  I think there are 4 options to select components to choose from , is leaving them unselected the typical install?05:58
MythbuntuGuest88I am not there yet.  it will take a little time for it to format the 2tb raid.05:59
oobeMythbuntuGuest88, i cant really remember i installed mythbuntu 8.04.1 a few months back06:03
MythbuntuGuest88the install has changed a little since then,06:04
oobefrom memory there is an advanced install where you configure mythtv during the install and another option to let it install like a regular OS06:04
oobethere must be a current guide on mythbuntu.org06:05
