I am trying 9050
It is to include the DVB teletext patch
It looks like the problem was reported in http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/1338. You will need to build at least SVN 9053.[/url]
Hello Pablo
It works :D
Thx

Via EPIA M10000 Audio problems

Post by PaulF » Fri Mar 03, 2006 10:08 am

Hi,

I'm running a MythTV 0.19 backend with a Hauppage Nova-T DVB-T card and a MiniMyth 0.19beta3 frontend on a Via EPIA M10000 motherboard.

Everything is working fine apart from audio which I'm getting but seems to play the programs background music along with distorted voices. It's odd because the music isn't distorted at all just the voices. I wonder if I'm listening to some special audio stream for the hard of hearing or something! If I use a Mythtv 0.19 frontend everything works fine it's just my Minimyth frontend that is exhibiting the problem.

I hope I've posted this question in the right place as I didn't have this problem with the 0.18 release.

Anybody have any idea what the problem might be! It's certainly puzzling.

Thanks in advance,
Paul

Out of memory while watching livetv?

Post by monkeyBox » Sun Mar 05, 2006 2:04 am

Everything seems to work ok w/ beta3, but sometimes when I watch livetv for over an hour or so, mythfrontend crashes with an "Out of memory" error. How can this be resolved?

minimyth.script changes?

Post by MartinE75 » Sun Mar 05, 2006 12:55 pm

Hi,

with 0.18 i used minimyth.script to download configuration and start LCDd. Now it seems that something changed since mm_conf_get does not work any longer. Where can i find information about changes?

My minimyth.script looks like:

Code: Select all

mm_conf_get LCDd.conf /etc/LCDd.conf
LCDd > /var/log/LCDd.log &

Include /etc/rc.d/functions in the file.

Code: Select all

. /etc/rc.d/functions

mm_conf_get LCDd.conf /etc/LCDd.conf
LCDd > /var/log/LCDd.log &

Don't watch for so long. ;-)

I have never seen this. How much memory do you have?

In beta3, I rolled back the kernel from 2.6.15.4 to 2.6.14.7. Does wakeonlan work for you in beta3?

Audio problems with xine

Post by cj8scrambler » Sat Mar 11, 2006 3:44 am

I've got myth working fine with beta3. My only problem is that I get no audio with xine. Audio works fine using an mplayer command like 'mplayer -fs -zoom -vo xvmc filename.mpg'. But I'd rather use xine. I've tried 'xine -pfhq --no-splash --video-driver xxmc filename.mpg'. The video plays fine, but I get no audio at all. I redirected stderr and stdout to a file and this is all I can find:

Code: Select all

audio_decoder: error, unknown buffer type: 02000000
audio_decoder: error, unknown buffer type: 04000000
audio_decoder: error, unknown buffer type: 01060000
audio_decoder: suggested switching to stream_id 00
waiting for audio discontinuity #2
audio discontinuity #2, type is 2, disc_off 3735
I've noticed that there is no /dev/dsp device. Is this normal? I'm using the analog output on my EPIA M1000, but I have MM_AUDIO_TYPE set to 'digital+analog' (I want to get digital audio working next).

I have 256MB. Is that not enough? Are there any certain settings in mythfrontend that tend to use a lot more memory?

Pablo,

I tried beta 3 a few weeks ago (briefly) and it did seem to hose wakeonlan. I forgot about that until now, sorry I didn't report it earlier.

Thanks.

When was the last time that it worked for you? Knowing this could help me track down the problem.

I have heard of other people having problems with 256MB of memory. I run with 512MB, and 'cat /proc/meminfo' shows that I am using more than 256MBs.

For the next beta, I was waiting on the testing that of some changes to allow MiniMyth to boot on the Commell LV-675. Is there something that you are waiting for in the next beta?
