Users / Re: lmce 1004 and MythTV
« on: June 18, 2011, 09:39:31 am »
I was having the same issue with 1004 mythtv, and looked in the myth backend logs on the MD with the tv capture card:

TVRec(3): Changing from None to WatchingLiveTV
TVRec(3): HW Tuner: 3->3
TFW, Error: Opening file '/home/public/data/pvr/livetv/1073_20110618105005.mpg'.
      eno: Permission denied (13)
TVRec(3) Error: RingBuffer '/home/public/data/pvr/livetv/1073_20110618105005.mpg' not open...
TVRec(3) Error: CreateLiveTVRingBuffer() failed
TVRec(3) Error: Failed to create RingBuffer 1
TVRec(3): Changing from WatchingLiveTV to None

etc.. And end up getting something similar to: All inputs are in use although Mythtv isn't recording anything... Tried changing the permissions on the directory, although it reverts back by the next time I use it to play LiveTV.

Dirty hack; a cron job: * * * * * root /bin/chmod 777 /home/public/data/pvr/livetv

Logs:
/var/log/mythtv/mythbackend.log
/var/log/pluto/<device#>_MythTV_Player.log

Hopes this helps.

Users / Xine-Lib plugins?
« on: June 09, 2011, 05:01:37 pm »
I've been using background music for parties and such, and have been looking into using visualizations for music. I can get it to work a very dirty way of adding it to the computing section and then run a script, but not using the native Xine-Lib.

When Xine-lib device starts it says something similar to Visualization 'has not been enabled' or 'has been disabled' (I'm not at my PC right now so the wording may be different); Anyway, I've looked through the config I thought it was referencing, and not been able to work out why, so will it require recompiling or can I create a new template for it to load xine a different way, just for audio, and show output from a visualization plugin?

Or have I been looking at it all wrong, and should be using Mplayer/other to do the audio processing?

My goal is to use LED's as a UV meter, as I have done many years ago using winamp, then finally impement a DMX controller way into the future (Maybe).

Any help will be appreciated!

Cheers!

Just tried it on my N900, and it works great, very smooth!

So just to make sure I've got it correct, this will be an extremely lightweight version of say, running an MD on virtual machine platform in a Windows (etc...) environment, except it'll run a lot faster, have more features, be more integrated with a smaller footprint? Sounds awesome! If you'd except a VB.net program I'd like to be involved (I know this isn't the case).

Did you try...
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install libdvdcss2
Cheers,
Matt.
Yeah, thats installed. I've been able to add a quick (very dirty) workaround using VLC:

Added a script to the computing application: /usr/pluto/bin/playdvd.sh
Quote
export DISPLAY=:0   <--(just for testing)
chmod 777 /dev/scd0
sudo -u testuser /usr/bin/vlc-wrapper dvd:///dev/scd0 -f --album-art=0 --aspect-ratio=4:3 --save-config
#I did have to add testuser to the audio group

VLC is in the software lists for MD's so I assume there would be an easier way to better intergrate what I've done here using vlc-client??

Hi All,

I've been search for a couple of days looks for a way to play new DVD's on one of my MD's, The DVD's in question is either of the transformers DVD's; Please note, I'm not trying to copy or back them up I just want to play them!!! I know about CSS and some of the newer encryption methods, and at the end of the day, I paid full price for movies I cant watch... I can watch older movies and newer movies, just not these ones

Anyone able to play these DVD's without backing them up first then playing the ISO, etc..??

Cheers

Users / Re: Define Orbiter video default sort option as filename
« on: September 26, 2010, 05:18:30 pm »
Wow that was a quick response :-) Cheers, it's been irratating for a while! Now I just have to find a way to make folders/directories a different color to files and it'll be alot easier for other people to use my systems :-)

Many Thanks,
Cheers.

Users / Define Orbiter video default sort option as filename
« on: September 26, 2010, 04:18:15 pm »
Hi All, I've been meaning to post this question for ages; Is there a way to define the default sort option for the orbiters? I use filename currently, so when ever I need to look for something in an orbiter I need to redefine the sort option and select "Filename" instead of "Title"?

Cheers
