VOMP General / MVP / Re: Any replacement for MediaMVP?
« on: February 28, 2012, 13:10:36 »
Marten, have you seen this? 

http://www.reghardware.com/2012/02/28/fxi_technologies_offers_cotton_candy_linux_pc_on_a_stick/

It appears to be android based, low powered with hdmi, wifi and bluetooth.  Bluetooth can be cludged for the remote..  Looks interesting..?

What about Google TV?  The Logitech Revue in the US is now down to $99, Android based etc.  Would the same app work on it?

This sounds seriously impressive.

Will the firmware/disk iso work on a DVD-R etc or will we need to beg/borrow/steal a bluray writer to get it?

If it's Bluray only, can we buy the disk from somewhere, maybe a US (NTSC-60HZ HD) and a Euro (PAL 50Hz HD) version?

VOMP General / MVP / Re: Vomp Extension Dongle/Server Version 0.3.1-3

I have made a couple of patches against the latest dongle which will probably only interest me, as I'm pretty convinced I'm the only US person using vomp now.

Patch 1, doesn't display the channel if it has "qam" in the channel name.. (I use qam for my ATSC clear qam channels - this could be a user specified string).

Patch 2 fixes an error where the info summary text is drawn off screen for an NTSC screen size.  Again, this needs to be a bit more intelligent as it will now wreck PAL output.  However, my C programming skills are not up to it.

If anyone needs it, I have a VMware ubuntu 6.10 image which I'm using for a development environment.

In case anyone else has this problem, I have created a VMware Ubuntu 6.10 just for compiling the vomp dongle.  VMware server 2 is free, as is VMware player.

What about not showing channels with only a VPid and Dpid, but no APid?  Am I right in thinking those pids are passed through to the client?

I notice that this version won't show h264 channels, is there anyway that it could check for a type A channel and ignore those too?  These are ATSC channels and come with AC-3 audio only, therefore don't work.  These channels being ignored would really help my family to not keep selecting them no many how many times they're told not to.

I would do it, but can't get the build environment set up.

VOMP General / MVP / new HD Vomp?
« on: May 18, 2010, 17:58:35 »
Just found this on the Hauppauge site.  Is this an evolution to an SD Vomp box or something else?

- Simple Child Lock. See Preferences --> Misc to turn on or off.
  If you have an groupseperator "Kids" in top of your channels.conf only this channels are shown.
 


Can you elaborate how this works?  I can't get it to?  I tried looking at the info page, but google did an "interesting" job translating it from German?

Will that also work for the Windows HD Test client?

I have a bunch of channels which won't work in Vomp as they only come with ac3 audio.  I want to display only the working ones.

QtVomp / Update against current cvs server?

Any chance of an update against CVS, Martin has put some HD support in for windows which should work with this.

Vomp For Windows / Re: Pre-alpha HDTV playback
« on: February 24, 2010, 22:53:20 »
Am just about to go out, so I'll do some more testing later, but as a note, my other laptop, both EVR and VBR work with mpeg2, this has an intel graphics card.  This is also Vista.

This laptop however, I don't think has the power to decode h264 properly, at least at the bitrate it's being fed at..

The samples I sent had an MPEG 2 with HD, the pbs one, the other two were H264 (HD) and Mpeg 2 with ac3 sounds in (SD) from CNN..

Recordings exhibit the same characteristics but quality is slightly better.

Vomp For Windows / Re: Pre-alpha HDTV playback
« on: February 24, 2010, 21:55:25 »
Some more testing with two of the laptops and the version 2 of the Vomp for Windows..

One the faster laptop with Nvidia graphics,

I used Cyberlink DVD 8 codecs for mpeg2 and h264. 

SD with AC-3 audio, audio is horribly out of sync.  My guess is this is working as a by product of the development, but in ATSC land this is a biggie.  Comcast (the largest cable company) is broadcasting 60 or so premium channels in the clear as they're shutting off their analogue channels.  So we have 8 HD channels and 60 SD ones, all of which are ac-3...

MPEG 2 HD with ac-3, with EVR the picture is distorted as I wrote before.  With VBR picture is good, audio is pretty much in sync.. Although there are framedrops.. TCP size I have up at 16384..

H264, picture quality is good, but only works with EVR (the opposite of above).. Audio stutters.  It doesn't seem to make much difference if I select the dts option is selected.

Didn't yet test a recording.. Will do so and report back..

Been trying to download it for the last half hour... They're busy and I'm not allowed to download it unless I pay up..

Still not working after two hours of continuous tries..

Can we upload this somewhere else?

@dingo35

Can you create a binary dongle for hardware mvp's from this code?

I can't get a dev env. to compile anymore..

15
Tried Makedev-5 and 6..

I even got as far as patching collect2.c to allow makedev-6 to work a bit further, but now I get a buffer overflow error.

Can someone with a dev env. put up a client binary dongle which works with the latest cvs so I can use my hardware mvp's at the same time as testing the new windows beta builds?
