DVArchive V3.0 Now Available - Page 3  

post #61 of 499
Gerry, you so rock.

One problem though: Anything I schedule does indeed show up on the corresponding ReplayTV, but with no days checked. So, like, I can set up as many shows as I want, but none of them ever have anything scheduled to record.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

No biggie -- just won't include the log. The fix on the schedule email template worked fine. Thanks!

I looked real hard and couldn't find this option. Is it possible that option
is only available if I have multiple guide providers? I have duplicate
channels with a single provider, HD and SD versions of the same channel.

Should Always be available.

On The TV Listings tab, press Properties. On the TV Properties dialog, press the Add/Remove channels button. A list of all the channels will appear and you can check off any you want to hide/ignore.

Ok, I see, I was looking for a checkbox to ignore duplicate channels for
conflict resolution purposes.

The problem with "hide channel" is I actually want SD and HD versions
of the channels listed, because I prefer to record off the SD channel if
the content source is SD and the HD channel if the content source is HD.

What I really want is a way to turn off conflict checking for particular
theme channels. This would solve 2 annoyances for me w/r/t theme
conflict checking.

1) the SD/HD duplicate channel problem
2) theme channels where I expect a bunch of conflicts and take advantage
of the fact that themes lose to show-based. An example would be FOX
10 oclock news, where I just want replay to make best effort to record,
but expect a bunch of conflicts because 10pm is primetime for the other
majors.

If there was a checkbox to "not" perform conflict checking for themes,
that would be good enough for me.

Gerry, I hate to be the capitalist in all of this, but if you are not a millionaire, you will be soon! I have actually paid for software in the past that wasn't so refined and useful!! Just amazing... Thanks again!!

On that note, I am so overwhelmed by this release, I feel like I MUST put some money on it!

Give me your paypal, I WANT TO MAKE A DONATION to the cause. Won't take NO for an answer! This release is awesome and I want to help further the effort! I am not a programmer, or anyone who can make a technical contribution... so I will let my dead prezidents be my means of support.

For instance, I downloaded that Avant Browser from www.DOWNLOAD.com and he offers the option to contribute ... and I did! His donation page defaults to $15USD (but the user can choose that as well as $10, $20, or $30 from a drop-down box, or you can just type your own amount in there)... Let us help! ;)

Whatdya say???

Jerry,

Again thanks 3.0 appears to work perfectly. I have DVArchive on a desktop computer hard wired to a router and also on a wireless connection to a WinXP notebook. I have setup both to use the Web pages. I am only able to access the Web page when I have DVArchive open on at least one computer. Is this the way it's suppose to be?. Also, do most people just keep DVArchive open on their computer.

Thanks again,

Al

Thank you so much Gerry - this is simply awesome - I can finally stop checking the avsforum every morning to see if 3.0 was released - today was the day!!!!

I have a question about refreshing the recording schedule from the replays. Using the new TV listing feature, I detected a conflict that I resolved on the appropriate replay. But the old conflict still shows on DVArchive. I've stopped and restarted DVArchive, but I'm still seeing different conflict resolution on the replay vs. DVArchive. Am I missing a simple step - that certainly wouldn't surprise me.

Thanks again, and really give some thought to that donation thing - I'm in!

editorial:
Gerry,
Make public a paypal link for donations. Self-deprication is the accomplice of monopolies. Credit, in it's various forms, should flow in a natural way, sometimes informally for periods. The only other side is those who do not pay for the GPL software should not feel guilty, and talk that makes them feel guilty should be discouraged.

It's everyone's loss if people can't pay you to move towards a personal psychological 'balance'.

I also hope that people will not take it upon themselves to promote payments in a heavy handed marketing sort of way.

Let it publicly be know that the $$ will buy few pairs of shoes and meals in a restaurant(whatever cranks his chain), so to speak, maybe a few bling-bling purchases(it won't go far, but it will be blast).

I'm in for $10. Call it Overbrimware. If you overbrim with appreciation, and want to send in a random amount of money, this is where: <link>

Maybe I just missed something or read the FAQ too fast in my hurry to get the "Newest" version of this great software up and running...

But on the Channel guid set-up..

I get my locals via off air and also have DireTV which currently does not offer locals in my market... and when they do will not subscribe... yet

But shouldn't I be able to have the number counting start at "0" on both so that UHF/VHF' list through correct channels then have DirecTV start listing at channel 100 and up?

I have to agree 100%. I'm sure with your skills Gerry that you probably make good money, but you deserve a little compensation for your hard work. I'm sure this is your baby, a fun fun project on the side. But for those of us willing to donate to the cause, why not take us up on it?

If you feel uncomfortable making your Paypal account public, at least PM it to me.

DVA is also the DVA web server, so to see web pages, DVA must be running.

I don't know if most people use DVA 24x7, but with 3.0, the desire to do so (take advantage of auto-TV listing updates, nightly conflict email, web server, scheduled download tasks, etc) is a bit stronger :-)

Sure - set up the off-aire as the primary provider (which has a channel offset of 0) and the Dish TV as your secondary provider (when you do, you'll be able to type in a channel offset for them -- 100)
post #75 of 499
Just to be sure nobody overlooks this... Note that the web server functions can be accessed from WAN side as well as LAN side. Just be sure to setup proper port-forwarding in your router of WANIP:8080 (or whatever WAN port you want) to DVALANIP:8080. This means you can do all the neat things DVA can do from the comfort of your work place or anywhere you have internet access. I just tried it and it works great.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and if you do this be sure to enable password authentication to provide yourself a small layer of security.
post #76 of 499
Have a minor quibble:

I have soem of my shows stored offline on DVD-Rs, so they aren't available when DVArchive 3 first starts and converts the old preferences to the new format.

It basically just tosses out the info on the offline shows and thus from the guide listings.

It would be nice if it could retain the info and the guide entries even when the MPG files aren't found.

Maybe in the next release?

Moyekj:

Could you be a little more specific with an example (with IP addresses, router settings, etc) to make sure that everyone understands exactly how to use the Web server from outside the LAN.

Thanks,

Al
post #78 of 499
You need to know your external IP, such as 209.172.3.8 vs your internal IP of 192.168.1.4 . You pick a port, such as 1234, and forward that port in your router, then punch in http://209.172.3.8:1234 into your browser and you should get the page.
post #79 of 499
As Heathriel said, you need to know your WAN or external IP (your router WAN IP), such as 209.172.3.8. I call this the WANIP. You also need to know the LAN IP of the PC running DVArchive, such as 192.168.1.103. In DVA you can specify any Web Server port you desire, default is 8080.

So, for the simple port forwarding case (all routers should support this and this is the same way you would setup port forwarding for IVS) using the sample IP and port numbers above:
External Port=8080, Protocol=TCP, IP Address = 192.168.1.103

For the case where you want an external port different than the internal port you can use UPnP Forwarding in your router (if it supports it), which in addition to above allows you to specify an internal port to forward to.
post #80 of 499
Heathriel or anyone:

If you could clarify slightly. I have a Netgear router and the port forwarding gives the choices : start port, end port, and IP address. Do I pick the same port as on the Web Server tab (ex 8080) for both start and end ports and do I list the external(WAN) or the internal(LAN) IP address in the IP address in the router.

Thanks,

Al

Annoyingly, DVA does this right, but I had put a bit of debugging code to shunt around the date/time resolution code (testing a problem a while back) and forgot to pull it out.

Before I fixed it, I was able to duplicate the problem exactly as you described. Took the silly shunt out and viola - worked fine!
post #82 of 499
Specify start port=8080, end port=8080, use INTERNAL IP address of your PC running DVA, usually 192.168.x.x. If you are not sure what you PC LAN IP is you can start a shell (start->run->cmd) and type:
ipconfig
Then look for the "IP Address" for the appropriate ethernet adapter you are currently using.

EDIT: Actually, under DVA Properties Web Server tab it even gives you the PC LAN IP and port to use if you are not sure what they are.

Great news Gerry, so when can we expect a patched DVArchive.jar to be available? :)
post #84 of 499
Thanks everyone. Hopefully this will also clarify for many others.

For anyone who does not know where to get their external IP(WANIP) just goto www.ipchicken.com

The large numbers in the center is your external IP.

All the new features are great, especially the upcoming recordings list.

Take THAT TiVo to-do list!

Probabl;y a couple of days - I want to shake out the first batch of bugs and get most of them released with a patch version. So it'll likely be middle of the week, maybe a bit later.

ipchicken appears to tell porkies. It says 'ports are open', when a scan by 'shields up' at www.grc.com finds none open. How can I believe ipchicken...

So then even if "DVA3" is listing the channel as 302[202] for CNN then "DVA3" will correctly tune to channel DirecTV 202?

My RePlay currently is busy doing four [view/send/receive/record] things at once... so once the amount of tasks level off I will play with "DVA3" setting again and see what I might be misunderstanding..

post #90 of 499
Gerry, another issue with Upcoming Shows. The "Duration" column does not show extra minutes used when padding a show. For example I have a 150 minute basketball game setup to record and I padded it out an extra 30 minutes, so the total Duration should be 180 minutes - DVA is showing 150 minutes. Are show paddings considered in conflict detection? Thanks.
