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

  • 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 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

  • #3078 Consistent behaviour of SELECT action across widgets

In SVN, 13123

  • #2840 Add option to autostart MTD
  • #2839 Enable virtual keyboard for ComboBox
  • #2838 Allow use of Arbitrary commands for mythwelcome setwakeuptime
  • #2238 Mute logic fails on cards using v4l1-compat
  • #2214 vbi device detection
  • #1892 DVD Detection Problem
  • #3077 Default CD Device selection
