morganis there any choice between a revo running xbmc or a boxee?11:40
morganxbmc seems more robust, but im not sure the revo is the biz.. is there sometihng better?11:42
digitlmanhello all18:54
digitlmanwould somebody recommend Intel Atom/Nvidia ION over AMD Fusion for Mythbuntu?18:59
rhpot1991digitlman: you'll want to stick with nvidia19:01
rhpot1991!vdpau | digitlman19:02
Zinndigitlman: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/VDPAU19:02
digitlmanahh exellent thanks19:02
_antantgot my gt210 card coming tomorrow. wish I'd known about it before i bought ati19:02
digitlmanI'm eyeing this one:  http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681315722719:03
Zinn[www.newegg.com] Newegg.com - ASRock AD525PV3 Intel Atom D525 (1.8 GHz, Dual-Core) Intel NM10 Mini ITX Motherboard/CPU Combo19:03
digitlmannot sure what vid cap card to use in that, however....19:06
tgm4883digitlman, whoa, for a backend?19:15
tgm4883not sure I would use an atom processor in a backend19:15
digitlmanas a combo, yeah19:16
digitlmanwith 4GB of RAM, I would think this would work19:16
tgm4883thats going to be pretty slow for some of the things a backend does19:16
digitlmanpaired with a 7200 RPM 2.5" drive?19:16
tgm4883I mean, you don't have to worry about encoding anymore, but commflagging and such19:16
tgm4883processor speed is the issue19:16
digitlmanwell, it *is* a dual core 1.8Ghz19:17
digitlmanis that not powerful enough?19:17
tgm4883digitlman, you can do it, just don't expect the backend to be spectactular19:18
tgm4883for perspective, I want to upgrade my AMD X2 3800+ backend cause I think it commflags too slow19:18
digitlmanthe commflagging is CPU-intensive?19:18
digitlmancan't be  off-loaded to the GPU?19:19
tgm4883Nope, not commflagging19:19
tgm4883playback yes19:19
tgm4883But i haven't seen anything that off-loads commflagging to the CPU19:19
digitlmanwould that be apparent more when playing back, or encoding?19:19
tgm4883You won't be doing any encoding usually19:20
digitlmanrecording, I mean19:20
tgm4883nah, recordings is low CPU, as it is just writing the stream to the disk19:20
tgm4883playing back is low to if you use VDPAU19:20
digitlmanbut the playback, you say, would suffer?19:21
tgm4883it may19:21
digitlmanwhat would the result in?  Stuttering or something?  lag?19:21
tgm4883If you don't already have another system for the backend, i'd at least test it out19:21
tgm4883perhaps stuttering19:21
rhpot1991digitlman: most people do an ion for a frontend19:21
digitlmanwhat I'm really trying to do i replace a power hungry series 2 Tivo19:22
rhpot1991and then have a nice powerful computer hiding away somewhere for their backend19:22
digitlmanwith a front/back mythbox19:22
digitlmanone that I can also install other linux program on19:22
digitlmanthanks for the info....I was *really* hoping to contruct something that runs under 20 watts at load19:23
digitlmanION seemed the trick....but maybe an i3 or i5 is better?19:24
rhpot1991ion will be that for playback19:24
rhpot1991not sure what will happen when you throw backend functions into the mix though19:24
digitlmanahh i see19:24
digitlmanit's the combo that might throw it off?19:24
ZinnIon Boxes make a great frontend.  http://www.baablogic.net/drupal/node/219:24
rhpot1991I have some power numbers in there for playback19:24
rhpot1991in the comments section19:25
rhpot1991well more cpu usage with the backend, may hike the power usage some19:25
rhpot1991also hard drives in the backend, use power19:25
digitlmanwhat is your back end?  Is it listed here?19:27
rhpot1991digitlman: http://www.baablogic.net/drupal/node/1319:28
Zinn[www.baablogic.net] My MythTV Setup | www.baablogic.net19:28
rhpot1991all my hardware is there, slightly out of date19:28
digitlmanany idea what the back end draws for power?19:29
rhpot1991never measured it unfortunately19:37
digitlmanthanks for th einfo19:42
Number6Is there a way to edit where myth-tv pulls it's file list from? I have an external hard drive and it's mounted. I'd prefer ssh to edit the files, going through the menu is annoying20:05
rhpot1991define file list20:05
Number6Where avi files are stored20:06
Number6Like /media/hard-drive/movies/myfilms.avi20:06
rhpot1991just add that to a storage group in mythtv-setup20:06
rhpot1991the videos storage group I think20:06
Number6I tried that already, but under "frontend" >> Watch Videos, it says there's no files20:16
rhpot1991m > scan for changes20:34
Number6Ahh, I need now20:51
Number6Should the mediafiles be owned by MythTV or my own username?20:52
rhpot1991Number6: as long as your user is in the mythtv group they should get created with permissions for that group and work21:03
rhpot1991if you are having issues you can try to sudo chown mythtv:mythtv them21:03
Number6Aye, I think I'll do that.21:04
Number6I'm impressed with Myth-TV so far. I used Windows MCE for about 5 years now, and I miss ssh access to fix things21:05
Number6Hmm, I think mounting the external hard drives changed the ownerships as root21:08
Seeker`how good is bluray playback in mythtv now?21:24
