    [mythbuntu] NFS broken, causing lockups

    Following a powercut, one of my media slaves is no longer picking up its NFS connection, and any attempt to mount them manually (either via mount -a or mount -t nfs) causes the console to lock up,...
  2. Re: SPDIF stopped working - device no longer available?

    Hmm. After a) copying the /etc/asound.conf to ~/.asoundrc b) rebooting and c) leaving the computer in the presence of some drunken partygoers for a couple of hours, the music pumping out of it is...
  3. SPDIF stopped working - device no longer available?

    Been running an SPDIF device successfully since a fresh install of the RC... but for some reason ALSA is now defaulting to the HDMI device instead of the digital out and I can't seem to get it back....

    [kubuntu] Re: performance problems with kubuntu

    From the looks of reports across the net and (especailly) at the KDE bugtraq this is a reasonably widespread issue - some posts say buggy plasmids* are to blame (not applicable in this case as I'm...

    [kubuntu] Re: performance problems with kubuntu

    Same problem here, although not as severe. plasma-desktop routinely spikes up to 100% CPU usage on one core and sucks up a huge amount of memory - currently 737MB (and I thought explorer.exe was...
  6. MythVideo and TV metadata - "non standard" filename formats

    Been getting to grips with the new Myth release and mostly hunky dory... but I'm totally lost as to how the new metadata grabber for TV shows is supposed to work.

    From reading the mythtv website,...

    [SOLVED] Re: Can't Upgrade Database

    Ran into this problem myself when upgrading, when the identity of Toad was still unknown :D

    Similar problem here, only complicated by the fact that my database is aeons old - I'm still using the...

    Re: Upgraded to 9.10 and lirc isn't working

    Also having problems with LIRC on the upgraded system - on my Nova-T 500 machine, the IR port is correctly detected but doesn't generate any input events whatsoever; if I cat /dev/input/event5 (or...
  9. [ubuntu] Re: SATA/IDE problems while building dual-boot XP/Ubuntu system

    If the GRUB prompt isn't coming up (or any other errors for that matter), chances are your GRUB boot block is missing from the hard drive - either because your previous boot block was on the PATA...
  10. [ubuntu] Re: SATA/IDE problems while building dual-boot XP/Ubuntu system

    Have you tried installing windows on the second partition (currently ext3)? The windows bootloader generally doesn't like having to boot from past the 1024 cylinder boundary.
  11. [mythbuntu] Re: Tried to install 180.22 drivers, now all hell broke loose

    Can you see if the nVidia module is loaded?

    lsmod | grep nvidia

    If it is loaded, can you see which version it is?

    cat /proc/drivers/nvidia/version

    I recently had to jump through a few...
  12. [ubuntu] Re: Anyone know how to slow down a dvd player

    Not sure if you're using something backended in xine (e.g. kaffeine), but xine has parameters to set a maximum drive speed when watching a DVD movie.

    [mythbuntu] Re: Installing latest nV drivers?

    No problem, it was just a matter of figuring out which bits of the various howto's still applied. Think the process basically went:

    Uninstall restricted drivers metapackage and all versions of the...

    [ubuntu] Re: ASUS P5N7A-M Motherboard

    As per this thread I've successfully got this board working with an existing install of 8.04, and performance is pretty damned spiffy, enough to run milkdrop at 1360x768 which was my gripe with my...
  15. [ubuntu] Re: Trying to run 8.10 live on ASUS P5N7A-VM (nVidia 730i chipset)

    On my board there's a BIOS option called something like "Change AHCI DID for Linux" - I've no idea what it is or does, but I left it off (default) and my rolling upgrade worked - but it might have...

    [mythbuntu] Re: Installing latest nV drivers?

    Intrepid wasn't an option as there's no KDE3 available for it (long story).

    Finally got around the issue once I understood how Hardy's binary blob driver package works. Added "nv nvidia_glx_new"...

    I've just bought myself a lovely Asus motherboard with a 730i/9300 chipset to use as my new HTPC frontend but have found out that the nVidia drivers in Hardy don't support the 9000 series, as...

    [ubuntu] Re: ASUS P5N7A-M Motherboard

    Just bought one for an HTPC myself... but not managed to get the video working in 8.04 yet...! IIRC it requires the 177 or 180 version of the nVidia driver, which aren't yet supported in Hardy.
  19. Re: New master backend - can't talk to other backends

    Fixed the other issue now.

    For some reason, gentoo had been telling myth that the system hostname was actually the FQDN - as such, all my recordings had an invalid hostname entry. Running this bit...
  20. Re: New master backend - can't talk to other backends

    OK, one problem solved - the BackendServerIP setting in the mythconverg.settings table was set to 127.0.0.1 instead of 192.168.1.20, which is banquo's network address. Changing this allowed prospero...
  21. [SOLVED] New master backend - can't talk to other backends

    Gak!

    Having just moved house and finally been allowed some holiday I decided to rejog my ailing Gentoo master backend with a new Kubuntu-based one (8.04) - that all went hunky dory, by the way,...

    IIRC it needs a "cover.jpg" in the album directory,although pretty sure cover.png works too.
  23. Re: What is the extra file with extension .map, produced by mythtranscode?

    Aha, I think it might be a position map, a log of which frame the transcode has currently gotten up to. Not quite sure what the number represent though, they're either too big or too small for things...
