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.

KnoppMyth R5D1 basic setup / TV listings for Perth Australia

Posted 12-11-2006 at 04:41 AM by Caysho

This is based on these two walkthroughs:
http://bjblaster.homedns.org/project...htv/index.html This has more information about the rest of the setup than what I have here.
http://www.cse.unsw.edu.au/~willu/xm...ab_au_reg.html Small and concise.

I've blown up my box twice now, and took notes both times :)
This now takes me about 30 minutes to do.

Importing Evolution contacts into Kontact/KMail

Posted 12-01-2006 at 11:12 PM by Caysho

Now that Novell has signed it's deal with the devil, I'm moving from OpenSuSE 10 to Kubuntu 6.06 (I think I'm actually using 6.06.10).
I have been using Evolution since I started using linux a few years back (Mandrake 9.0), and now I want to get rid of it.

So I convert to KMail. It has mail import engines for a lot of mail clients, so I pull it all in, and it preserves my folder structure. As yet, I haven't found a method, convenient or otherwise, to get my mail filters from...
