About Me

I currently work as a Broadcast Systems Engineer for the BBC in Television Centre, London. In my spare time I throw myself down hills on a mountain bike, down caves on a rope and other silly pursuits...

Involved with various IPTV projects and DVB multiplexing for the UK as well as European satellite operations.

MythTV Boxes

Combined Front/Backend - Galahad

  • MSI K8NGM2-FID
  • Athlon64 3200+
  • 512MB DDR RAM
  • 320Gb Seagate Barracude SATA HDD (/ - ext3; /store - xfs)
  • nVidia 6150 on-board (Component, DVI, Composite Out)
  • 1x KWorld DVB-220RF Hybrid PCI (DVB-T/Analog/FM - Saa7134 chipset)
  • 1x Kworld DVBS-100 PCI (DVB-S - CX88 chipset, currently unused since no access to satellite feed)
  • Ubuntu Feisty with customised MythTV packages built from SVN head
  • IRMan serial infra-red receiver (to be replaced with a UIRT2 when I build one)

Other systems on my network run a frontend which connects to Galahad as and when required.

Patches/Modifications

Stuff in bold needs looking at

Patches I'm Using

  • #3405 Alsa input for analog capture

Applies, not tested to see if it actually works.

  • #3189 Mythfrontend rescales themes every startup

This works really well, the prescaling dialog barely appears now.

  • #3501 osd channel icon not rescaled on osd theme change

Applies, need to test switching osd but I certainly see all my icons.

  • #3293 Autodiscovery Patch for MythFrontend

Works very well, as the ticket says the GUI could do with a little love.

  • #3334 Allow mythtv-setup to use the downloadable icons from the new online database

Applies, I cannot get this to actually do anything at the moment though - need to investigate further.


Patches I want to test/apply

  • #3505 Avoid OSD resize from 4:3 when viewing 16:9 TV

Patches submitted by me

  • #3077 Default CD Device selection

Some work in SVN. Lot's of work done by Nigel here. Need to review current status and work out where work should be done.

  • #2840 Add option to autostart MTD

Not accepted. Applied to my build. I think this makes myth and mtd easier to use.

  • #1892 DVD Detection Problem

Not accepted. This concerns the detection of DVD's based on video_ts directory. Should be uppercase if mounted as udf, but doesn't

  • #3078 Consistent behaviour of SELECT action across widgets

In SVN 13123

  • #2839 Enable virtual keyboard for ComboBox

In SVN 12347

  • #2838 Allow use of Arbitrary commands for mythwelcome setwakeuptime

In SVN 12374

  • #2238 Mute logic fails on cards using v4l1-compat

In SVN 11376 (modified version)

  • #2214 vbi device detection

In SVN 10886 really make any difference if mounted as iso9660 except it's lowercase. This fixes detection for this scenario.
