each hd recording of an hour can take up 3 gig or more, and i would love to strip commercials and encode to h.264 to save space.
I typically record complete series and then decide later if I am going to watch. kormoc: also, variables defined in the class before initialization are persistent and global among all instances of that class, so you can use those to cache 'DESC' responses and not have to repeatedly query them Everyone complains about our setup and ocean of options-- many of those options either do nothing any more, could be replaced with a keybinding, or toggle some tiny behavior for a patch that we never should have appliediamlindoro: as that article I was talking about yesterday proves, we've actually got it easy, when your business depends on keeping stupid users happy you end up with a product that is hopelessly compromised Denying that we are also an HTPC/media center software just gives us an opportunity to neglect the plugins-- like it or not, mythvideo, mythmusic, etc.
as you say, if you went in a second time it screws up, but even when i reset the gui offset and gui size params in the db to 0 and try again, it ends up making the mythtv window about 3/4 of the size it should befwiw, setting the screen size manually in the Utilities/Setup|Setup|Appearance page is very cumbersome – and in fact imho too difficult to use practically.
In the end i did it by adjusting values in DB directly, then restarting the frontend I recently got a 9400gt card, which has a 9 pin s-video port (s-video form factor, but 9 pins); it seems that cables for that are much rarer than the number of cards with it would indicate- any good source for them?
I currently have 2TB, but I think I'd be hard pushed to run out of space considering I delete almost everything after I've watched it, if you are falling so far behind in your viewing then consider whether you are ever going to catch up again – there will always be new series so it's not a finite resource I'm not a hoarder, I don't really understand those that are, I keep a selection of films around and a couple of really classic series that I know won't be repeated any time soon, but beyond that I watch once and discardanyways, it would be nice to have such functionality for mythtv, although rather than use one UUID per system, it might make sense per master-backend setup? are integral parts of Myth TV and we *are* in direct competition with those softwares on those counts** iamlindoro is already fearing backlash from certain people when he commits his code to (properly) build our list of audio devices from the ALSA api instead of some giant static list of whatever people thought might exist on people's systems **iamlindoro: I'm in favour of adding the devices reported by the API, it's really just the question of custom devices which the alsa API in it's infinite wisdom doesn't display, I know nothing stops users manually typing them in but ...
Could anyone offer some suggestions why my Program Guide whine watching Live TV is completely unusable?
[R]: database has grown too big, its getting slow and recording 8 channels: 2 cards, 4 channels each: it uses normally 20% of CPU, but scheduling makes it use 100% and now even that isn't anymore enoughlet's say you have 4 drives, if you mirror and then stripe, you have 4 logical readable targets and two logical write targets, if you stripe and then mirror, you have two logical read targets, and two logical write targets.
Having fewer logical read targets means your reads should go faster, but you'll be limited to two threads at oncethe thing is, I don't really know what I want to do MBE/FE wise..well recipe for disasterk-man: for the record, no serious media player links external ffmpeg libs and for the very same reason ffmpeg devs spent a large period of time in recent years where they never even bothered with a releasemicro-atx gives you a _lot_ more choice, and the cases are much less cramped, it all depends what role you want the machine to serve – if it's a backend and frontend then you'd definitely want m-atx, if it's just a frontend then you might chose to avoid the hassle of self-build and go with a 0 Atom system like the Acer Revo Bigshot: there is more to it than that, I suggest you do some reading on the Myth TV wiki, maybe the guys here can point you in the right direction – what I'm driving at is that if you want to record TV, which is what Myth TV is all about then you need to consider how those tuner cards etc are going to fit in the case and leave you room to expand should you need itthe other option is to combine the frontend (playback) and backend (recording/storage) capabilities in a single machine, but then you need something that is both powerful enough for playback and large enough to accomodate the tuner cards/drivesbut that comes down to my point, it could be valuable to have automated crash notification to a central server, that would record crashes and what myth was doing at the time....patterns might emerge from thatiamlindoro: but again, thats the whole point of it, not to deal with each crash, but to gather stats, ie, for example, it might be found that 80% of crashes happen when starting to watch a recording or something, then any dev will know thats a great place to start fixing bugs Warning at /var/www/htdocs/mythweb/modules/_shared/tmpl/_errors/db_vars_error.php, line 23: require(modules/_shared/tmpl/tmpl/header.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directo Does someone knows where to plug the "Hauppauge PVR-150 IR Blaster": the card: ;?abqjp, adante, aloril, And4713, Anduin_, Andy Cap, anykey_, Ari X_, at0m, baffle, bbee, bbigras, beata-, Beirdo, benc_, bjd, Bjorn R1989, bmidgley, bobgill, bobshaffer, brfransen, c4t3l, cafuego, Captain_Murdoch, Casper0082, cattelan, cesman, chainsawbike, Chan Serv, charlie S2, Chipdancer, christ_, clever, Cold Fyre, Computer_Czar, Cougar, croppa, d-tech, dagar, dansushi, dare, Dave123-road, Daviey, davisc, Dibblah, dividehex, Dj Madness, dknowles, dlblog, dmb, dmz, dserban_, dustybin, e Ne RGi_, Evil Bob, Evil Guru, felipe`, fleers, Floppe, foxbuntu, fryfrog, gbee, gbutters, ghoti, gnome42, gpd, gregl, Grey Foxx, grokky, growler, hachi, hadees, Heliwr, high-rez, highzeth, Hiisty, hipitihop, honk, iamlindoro, ikke T, inordkuo, ivor, J-e-f-f-A, j-rod, jamesd2, jams, janneg, jarle, Jay2k1, jcarlos, jduggan, JEDIDIAH__, JJ1, jmkasunich, jpabq, jpabq|, jstenback, justdave, justinh, jvs, k-man, kabtoffe, kavakava, Ka Ze R, keith4, keith4_, kisak, kmdm, kormoc, kothog, Kra Mer, kurre_, Lab Monkey, leprechau, linus5, Lollero, lotia, Loto_, lyricnz, mad Lyfe, mag0o, Maliuta, markl_, Maverick Tech, mbamford, Memphis, meshe_, Metoer, mikeones, Milk Boy, Mooing Lemur, Myth Log Bot, mzb, Night Monkey, nils__, npm, nrpil, nutron, oobe, Patina, pat_, paul-h, pheld, pigeon, pizzledizzle, Pointy Pumper, poodyp, poodyp1, prg3, Prost, psipsi, purserj, quicksilver, RDV_Linux, Rebecca, rhpot1991, Robert Laptop, rooaus, rushfan, ruskie, Rye Brye, shadash, sid3windr, simcop2387, skd5aner, Slim-Kimbo, sphery, sphex, Splat1, squidly, squish102, stoth, Strings`, suffice, sulx, sutula, sybolt, tank-man, tgm4883, The Asp, thef Ront, Therock_, This Other Guy, Tomas-, tomimo_, toorima, tris, troyt, tt884_, Tuxteri, tzanger, wagnerrp, Wicked, xand, XLV, xris, [Peter], _abbenormal, _charly_gbee, slickrick, fanart loading in Watch Recordings was slow in 0.22 and most of trunk until a few weeks ago because it hit the backend every time you scrolled if there was no known image for the current recording.current trunk caches the file lists retrieved from the backends so it doesn't have to hit them again.wagnerrp: well, i had major problems getting it to scale properly.Tried running it from the terminal, but the only errors was a non descript looking timeout Have a hauppauge 950Q, trying to use it to watch analog.
