mrandnerdful_things: /dev/sr0 is the device name.  You want the mount point (/media/cdrom0, for example)00:08
nerdful_thingsmrand, so in the optical/archive setup, i would use /media/cdromxinstead of /dev/dvd like it defaults to?00:17
nerdful_thingsom previous installs, archiving went ok with defaults. This install i can't even play a dvd, with all the "special" ligraries I usually put in from synaptic or MCC00:21
nerdful_thingsSo I think I'm going to put in a new drive now, but want to archive stuff from the "recordings" folder. What is a good choice to do it manually? xvid, mp4, etc. I just want to edit files to fit on a dvd as data not autor a DVD. Thanks00:23
mycotgm4883 - they are both LCD tvs - one is CCFL backlit, the other is LED backlit00:35
mycoLED backlit units tend to have a more pronounced flicker, but also dont have the backlights die so much and dont use as muich power00:35
mycoworth saying it is far more important what panel technology you choose00:49
mycoTN is cheap, has poor colour gamut, and changes colour even a little off angle00:49
mycoIPS is the bees knees but traditionally a lil slow. cant be beat for colour and pretty much no change off angle00:50
mycoPVA is sorta inbetween, but has better contrast iirc, and is faster then IPS (TN is the fastest)00:51
nerdful_thingsHello, my mytharchive isn't working, so I'd like to know a quick way to save my mythtv recordings. I don't needf it in playable dvd, just .264, mp4, or other decent compressed files from ATSC recordings. want to edit commercials, and take clips from long programs, dump to usb flash, burn as data to dvd etc. Is Avidemux the best thing in the repo?01:07
mycomythtranscode will do half of the job if you mark edit points01:35
mycoafter using that to edit you could use mythexport to make a portable version of the recording with a more highly compressed codec01:37
mycohow is it evening there????01:37

nerdful_thingsmyco,  I am rebuilding my htpc, plus messing with other mythtv related builds. I just want to edit, split and save the ATSC recordings to another media, drive etc. My export and archive stuff is not working, and I am installing a new drive and want to start from scratch. So I just want to deal with existing recordings. Been looking at ProjectX to see if they need to be processed before or after editing, but page is in G01:53
nerdful_thingserman. Google translate helps, but...01:53
nerdful_thingsBTW, I use a HDHomerun.01:54
mycohttp://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Mythvidexport.py of any help?01:55
Zinn[www.mythtv.org] Mythvidexport.py - MythTV Official Wiki01:55
mycojust moves em to videos, with metadata intact01:55
mycocan be on a remote backend01:55
mycoall i would do would be backup the database and recordings - seems simpler01:56
nerdful_thingsassume the mythtv is uninstalled, I just have the recordings folder...01:57
mycomyself i would prolly jus use em as they are01:59
mycobut if u wanted to edit and compress i would prolly use avidemux to edit without transcode, and handbrake to transcode02:00
nerdful_thingsI don't see handbrake in synaptic02:05
mycothen put it there https://edge.launchpad.net/~stebbins/+archive/handbrake-releases02:09

mycowhich is from the instructions on the page i pasted02:53
nerdful_thingsjust got same error02:53
mycoyeah - for the old one you still have there02:54

nerdful_thingsso what is cli that is correct?03:04
mycosudo add-apt-repository ppa:stebbins/handbrake-releases03:06
nerdful_thingsok i get the requesting key stuff ok as before, now for update....03:11
nerdful_thingsah, this time no error03:11
nerdful_thingsThanks. now, qt or gtk for avidemux? And why no lables on the bloddy edit buttons?03:13
nerdful_thingsOne editor I liked on the Windows side was Womble video, no re-encoding after commercial cuts, wicked fast.03:16
mycocan do the same in avidemux03:16
nerdful_thingshmnn, gtk version shows button lables on hover, but not on qt version.03:17
nerdful_thingsI wish it was as easy as Total Recorder. Although I am getting used to Audacity in another linux distro...03:19
nerdful_thingsyuk mythtv recording plays about 1 frame per 5 seconds in VLC03:27
nerdful_thingsoh, it converted mpg to avi03:28
dt3mp3stwhen I select watch tv i get waiting then bounce me back to menu19:00
