MythbuntuGuest61<<*really forgot his manners this morning :)02:32
puffI'm trying to install mythbuntu onto a box with an existing ubuntu juanty instal.02:38
puffI don't care about the existing install or any data.  The box does not have any network access.02:38
puffWill I need network access to set up drivers, etc?02:39
puffHm, "A volume with software packages has been detected.  Would you like to open it with the package manager?"02:39
puffThat's probably the old jaunty install.02:39
MythbuntuGuest61After running debian for years - getting most of my support from ubuntu threads i've decided to jump ship - so to speak02:41
MythbuntuGuest61so I'm still not sure about the install process here - but "typical" debian wants a network conn unless you've downloaded ALL the dvd's02:41
puffMythbuntuGuest61: mythtv on ubuntu?02:42
puffMythbuntuGuest61: Uhgh, hm. Well, that's not really an option here... I have wifi on my laptop right next to it.02:42
puffAnd an 8gb USB key, so I can sneakernet stuff.02:42
MythbuntuGuest61that and a crossover cable may help :)02:43
tgm4883puff, How are you planning on getting channel data?02:43
pufftgm4883: For the moment I'm just using this for output, not for input.02:44
tgm4883Everything to install is included on the CD, if you need special drivers or firmware for your specific tuner then that is different02:44
tgm4883then you should be fine02:44
pufftgm4883: I'll be getting cable in a month or two and will have to get a new tuner box.02:44
puffThat is, I'll hve to get a new card or tuner... I've had somebody recommend an HD HomeRun from http://www.silicondust.com/02:45
puffWhich looks pretty neat, basically you plug your cable into one end, ethernet into the other, it runs a tcp/ip server of some sort that lets you open connections and control it, get video streams extracted from the nonencrypted channels.02:46
MythbuntuGuest61dtv1000 s? (not sattelite just the new terrestrial card) any tips?02:46
MythbuntuGuest61puff: I read that somewhere -sounded good to me at the time02:48
pufftgm4883: Okay, so I'll stop worrying about archiving off package files from the existing install and just go ahead and click on the instll icon.02:48
tgm4883yea the HDHomerun is a good device02:48
tgm4883a few of the devs have one02:48
MythbuntuGuest61tgm: p4-2.8 2g ram - will it cope with HD?02:49
tgm4883MythbuntuGuest61, video card?02:50
tgm4883and if you use tgm4883, it will ping me02:50
MythbuntuGuest61tgm4883: ok (been years since I irc'd)02:51
tgm4883MythbuntuGuest61, it might work, you are getting on the edge of low specs even for 720p or 1080i. If you have a video card that supports VDPAU and you use MythTV 0.22 that would help a bunch02:52
MythbuntuGuest61tgm4883: just shut down my debain (etch) myth box, so cant remember what ver running there02:53
MythbuntuGuest61.22 sounds familiar tho02:53
tgm48830.22 is the upcoming version, 0.21 is what is currently released02:54
MythbuntuGuest61tgm4883: what I really wanna know is if I should even bother with this winfast DTV1000 S ?02:54
tgm4883and i'm moving hardware around, so my answers might come slower02:55
MythbuntuGuest61bought it in a hurry - only did a quick search first and mis-read the results :(02:55
tgm4883I don't know much about that card02:55
MythbuntuGuest61kk - thnks02:55
tgm4883i'd say HD is worth it, if your system can't handle it, check and see if you can get a better video card that supports VDPAU02:55
MythbuntuGuest61I'm adding a hdd - so I can test Mythbuntu02:56
MythbuntuGuest61oh, the video card is an old nvidia with s-video and comp out02:56
MythbuntuGuest61one without a fan - the others I have all have noisy fans02:57
puffHm, I double click on "install" and some text flashes in the menu bar at the top,  "Starting administrative application", then disappears, nothing happens.03:02
puffOkay, so looking at the icon, it just invokes "ubiquity mythbuntu_ui".03:10
puffWhen I type that at the shell, it just returns without any messages.03:11
puffThere's no --verbose mode for ubiquity.  Where do ubiquity errors get logged?03:12
tgm4883puff, what version of mythbuntu?03:22
tgm4883superm1, ^03:22
MythbuntuGuest61tgm4883: lol just found a p4 3Gz chip laying around put it in an it works! so now i've "upped" my spec (by .22Gz)03:39
MythbuntuGuest61machine - vacuumes out - fans and heat sinks cleaned and hdd # 3 added - mythbunti disk burned - here goes - whoo hoo03:41
MythbuntuGuest61oops, forgot to swap the old TV 2000xp I was using for its remote for the DTV 1000 S - and it begins03:50
MythbuntuGuest61ooh, theres a try-before-install option - sweet03:59
tgm4883yes, but you have to have a backend already to try that04:00
tgm4883as it's frontend only04:00
MythbuntuGuest61ok, just found that out myself - doh! (this pc is in different room to where I'm building so my responses slowish too)04:06
MythbuntuGuest61tgm4883: How much ram is overkill - I have two empty slots - I could prolly go 4GB04:09
tgm48832GB is probably more than enough04:09
MythbuntuGuest61thought as much - swap mebbe but ah, stuff it - not sure how good these chips are - 2 it is04:10
MythbuntuGuest61tgm4883: interesting - seems to be no video out during install - have to attach a monitor - is that odd?04:14
tgm4883no, that could be right. Cause you don't have the nvidia driver loaded during install04:15
MythbuntuGuest61tgm4883: attached a monitor and re-started - tv is a mess but the monitor is fine04:21
MythbuntuGuest61when it gets to "who are you" is the the myth account or just a user account ?04:25
MythbuntuGuest61I should try and find a walk-through for this and stop bothering you04:26
MythbuntuGuest61I did the RTFM thing and found my answer04:27
tgm4883MythbuntuGuest61, your user account, don't make it mythtv04:35
MythbuntuGuest61tgm4883 yeh - found that in the manual - I  know Myth likes that for itself too - couldnt find the remote for the new cart so went with eventX for now - change/fix it later04:52
jchancehello everyone.. i am having an issue with mythtv on kubuntu 9.04 and its upmixing... the center channel is far louder then the surround channels are and not only that the signal sent to the surrounds almost sounds like it has had a high pass filter applied on to their signals. Then i have issues with my rear channels being really low on 5.1 as well. my sound card is a x-fi titanium fatality pro.. i have tried with strictly a05:08
jchancelsa and with the addition of pulse audio to my system.. any help is greatly appreciated i have been googling for days05:08
MythbuntuGuest61jchance: if you tweak your alsa settings you can adjust individual channels - been a couple of years tho - I'll check if I have a link that may help05:20
jchanceMythbuntuGuest61: thanks i had tried to look for even doing just that05:23
MythbuntuGuest61I am currently installing so dont have access to my debian box - so I'm googling - but I might have better luck cause I've looked before05:24
MythbuntuGuest61ok, found it - u need dmix (its an alsa thing) http://alsa.opensrc.org/DmixPlugin05:26
jchancethis has been frustrating for me to get straight with mythtv.. kaffeine, mplayer, and vlc with pulseaudio enabled work great for upscaling so far but also looking at doing my own asoundrc file for alsa only upscaling.. do i need to have an asoundrc file even with the upmixing mythtv does05:27
jchanceor does that only happen for digital out05:27
MythbuntuGuest61cant remember if *you have to* but its a place to start tweeking05:28
jchancei was looking at the concept well mythtv has the option it should just work. my 5.1 setup and sound card are configured properly i get sound with all tests to the right speakers05:29
MythbuntuGuest61I had a lot of trouble - I have a c-port - never really was satisfied - my best results was sending it all to the digital in (optic fibre) on my surround system05:29
MythbuntuGuest61that exhausts my ability to help - sorry05:30
jchanceit is appreciated.. i am thinking i will have to setup a asoundrc file which the documentation online isn't the greatest lol05:31
