EyeTV – can’t record the live buffer – shame!

Filed under: EyeTV, MacOSX — kenjun @ 10:54 am

There is one feature I think is missing from EyeTV though, has got to do with recording and time-shifting. EyeTV always keeps a buffer of a few minutes, so you can rewind live TV incase you missed something. Very handy for when something happens quickly or you swore you saw something but didn’t’ believe it. However, you can’t record what’s in this buffer to save it for later, which is what you usually want to do if something weird/funny/odd happens. I’m sure the boffins at Elgato are working hard on integrating it into EyeTV 3.

Erase and reburn a CD-RW on a Mac

Filed under: MacBook, MacOSX — kenjun @ 12:50 pm

I have been using CD-RW disks on my Apple MacBook Pro, and while I have figured out how to use a Burn Folder to create the disk in the first place, how do I rewrite the disk with newer content without having to buy something expensive like Roxio Toast??

Tutorial: Character sets & encodings in XHTML, HTML and CSS

Filed under: i18n, Internationalization — kenjun @ 9:53 am

If a user agent (eg. a browser) is unable to detect the character encoding used in a Web document, the user may be presented with unreadable text. This information is particularly important for those maintaining and extending a multilingual site, but declaring the character encoding of the document is important for anyone producing XHTML/HTML or CSS. This tutorial will give you an understanding of the topic that will help you make the right choices when doing so. The topic is not as straightforward as it may sometimes appear, and the advice contained here is the end result of a great deal of thought and discussion.

Multiple Views in CodeIgniter

Filed under: CodeIgniter, MVC, Web 2.0 — kenjun @ 12:16 pm

Method 2 – Embedding views

This method embeds a view within another view.

You can have a view that formats a menu, one that displays the contents of an article, and one that contains the overall template.

Upgrading to PHP5 on the MacBook

Filed under: MacBook, php — kenjun @ 10:20 am

An upgrade to PHP5 using the Entropy package on my MacBook just tanked.

Turns out the fault is pretty basic.

If you’ve been running PHP already (i.e. you have already uncommented the lines in your httpd.conf file that allows PHP to run) then Apache can’t figure out which version of PHP to use and the install fails.

Simple solution – recomment those PHP lines.
E.g. #LoadModule php4_module        libexec/httpd/libphp4.so
#AddModule mod_php4.c

ffmpegX failing to convert .MOV to .avi mpeg4…?

Filed under: Apple, ffmpegx, MacBook, MacOSX — kenjun @ 7:54 am

On my MacBook I dropped in a .MOV file into ffmpegX, selected DivX AVI and clicked Encode… with no luck.

The error message I kept getting finished with:

Movie-Aspect is undefined – no prescaling applied.”

The solution was to go into Options and change Scaling method from Fast Bilinear to Bilinear.

Plenty more discussion on this here:
