KnoppMyth R5E50 and AverTV DVB-T 777 and Digital Out

Posted 04-13-2007 at 06:48 AM by Caysho

I lost SPDIF Optical out, but got it back with these details.

OpenSlug NAS

Posted 04-04-2007 at 08:54 AM by Caysho

I recently got myself one of these.
I flashed it with OpenSlug 3.10, and I'm doing the following with it:
  • Sharing a 250 GB drive with samba.
  • Sharing a printer (Samsung ML-1740) with cups
  • Torrent box with transmission and dtach
  • NTP server with the listen option in the OpenNTPD configuration file.

I want to change the torrent software to rtorrent, but there's a few problems with it on the Slug. The solution to the first problem doesn't work for me, and I'm using ext3.

Removing commercial flags from MythTV Recordings

Posted 01-01-2007 at 07:51 AM by Caysho

I found out that commflag doesn't remove the cut lists (they were still present in the database, available with "c" in the edit facility), so after some hunting around I found this page.
I have since turned off commercial flagging because I found it doesn't catch them all (Knoppmyth R5D1).

Rip CD to FLAC, then convert FLAC to Ogg Vorbis

Posted 12-29-2006 at 11:03 AM by Caysho

Assuming you want a FLAC copy, of course.
Use any good ripper app to extract to FLAC.
I'm currently using Sound Juicer, but under OpenSuSE I was using another one from the Gnome suite (called something like XCDRipper, which was more configurable than Sound Juicer).
Then, I found a script to convert to MP3, which I modified.
It doesn't like spaces in the filenames.

That thread also talks about cd2ogg, which has been very handy.

Don't disable USB in the ASUS A8V Deluxe mobo.

Posted 12-21-2006 at 07:23 AM by Caysho

If you do, you get this:

"USB Device Over Current Status Detected
System Will Shut Down After 15 Seconds"

and it shuts down the machine - you can't get back into the BIOS.

I had to remove the CMOS battery and pull the power, then I was back to defaults.

What a braindead setting.
