YouSee TV Arkiv

YouSee

YouSee

YouSee lancerede for noget tid siden deres YouSee Piloter som basalt set giver deres kunder mulighed for at beta teste kommende firmwares og andre features til deres HD TV-bokse.

Hidtil har der ikke være noget voldsomt spændende de har lanceret, men i dag er der kommet en spændende mail. YouSee har åbnet op for deres TV Arkiv, som pt. indeholder DR1 og DR2 og flere af TV2’s kanaler gennem Sputnik. Arkivet indeholder, så vidt jeg kan gennemskue, programmerne ca. 1 måneds tid tilbage i tiden.

Mit umiddelbare indtryk er godt. Det er lidt langsomt at navigere ind til Arkivet gennem menuen, men det kan løses med et klik på Seværdighedsknappen på remoten. Herefter et det blot at finde det program man vil se. Jeg har testet med Troldspejlet på DR1 og Stand-up.dk fra Zulu og begge virkede fint. Der var enkelte dekodningsfejl, men det er jo også stadig i test.

En rigtig lækker feature er at man kan spole i udsendelsen. Både frem og tilbage, og endda i mere end en hastighed ved flere tryk på fx spol frem. På den må er det muligt at spole forbi reklame pauserne.

Jeg er ikke helt klar over om det er samtlig udsendelser som findes i arkivet. Det er det formentlig ikke, da jeg ikke kunne finde nogle film, men der var bl.a. 24 timer og andre serie, så helt skidt er det ikke.

Ubuntu Gutsy upgrade issues

Today I finally decided to upgrade to gutsy on my work PC.  I know it’s kinda premature since gutsy is still in the beta stage, but some of my coworkers had upgraded successfully and I had upgraded my home PC’s as well without any major issues, so I thought: “What the hell?“.

I fired up the update-manager and the upgrade process went well without any issues. Upon first reboot my screen setup was messed up. I have a dual screens with a big desktop setup, but now they were in clone mode (same content on both screens). That was fixed by changing the driver in xorg.conf from radeon to fglrx and some other options.
Thought that was not the main issue. Whenever I logged in with gdm, I would get the brown background with a mouse cursor and nothing else, no menus, no programs, nothing. After a bit of messing around I notice that the desktop was loading, just very, very slowly. Like 10-15 minutes slow. I tried a lot of different stuff, but the issue boiled down to network configuration.
During the upgrade the /etc/network/interfaces file was modified and now neither lo nor eth0 was working. I fixed that, rebooted and everything worked flawlessly.

I hope that’s it. So far no more major issues and it’s nice to finally have pidgin, etc. at work.
