ok, now that this bug is in my head.... i set about looking for this information and lo and behold it isnt easy to glean by any means that I could tell.
This is what I was referring to in my post. When I first came here, I did read everything I could find in the wiki and performed several searches in the forum, but there were still a few categories where the info did not seem complete or was contradictory in nature, so I posted a thread about it. And I have to say I did get a similar response along the lines of "don’t bother us and figure it out yourself, and if you cant figure it out yourself then it’s not our fault that other users haven’t properly documented their experiences". The questions I had, and even with the time I have been here still have, mostly regarded the playback of live TV and zwave integration. Both of those in the sample video as well as in the wiki were shown in such a way to seem seamlessly supported, yet in actuality seem to have quite a few issues and are not as supported as they are advertised.
I feel that many of these questions can be easily taken care of with a simple well maintained sticky of the most frequently asked questions right at the top of the user forum.
I agree that information could be better organized, but its there. Right now the forum admins are working on creating stickies or general FAQs to make it easier to find stuff.
There is a LOT
i've had to figure out myself. But then i didn't but linuxMCE, its free and its open source. Which generally means (from my experience) that YOU
have to take the initiative to find what you need.
Is it ideal at the moment? No, but until the project matures a little more, its quite DIY. I dont even have HD but I was able to find what jgaffney was looking for rather quickly. I think that sometimes, it feels as if people assume other members are here for tech support at their whim when a little effort would both serve to help them understand how the information is listed (which is all over the place granted) and how to find what they are looking for.
BTW, what issues are you having with live tv? I dont use zwave so im sorry to say i cant help with that.
