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...

I remember it as a kid :)

We're supposed to be having a referendum after the trial.

So, at work I got some details about the linux zone file:
/usr/share/zoneinfo/Australia/Perth

There's a file at http://matt.ucc.asn.au/time/
Here's hoping it works.

The joys of nvidia TV out

Posted 11-19-2006 at 12:12 AM by Caysho

I've been playing with MythTV (specifically KnoppMythR5D1), and I'm slowing discovering that not all tv out's were made the same.

The plan - to have twinview running in clone mode. I wanted to have the display to go to the tv, but to have the option to plug a monitor in for troubleshooting purposes. Initially I was trying with the ASUS V7100PRO/64M (it's a Geforce 4 MX/MX400 , if I recall correctly). It has a Brooktree 869 TV chip on it (Conexant Bt869KRF).

I expect I'll be putting some of my linux stuff here, mainly to consolidate it.
