Installation on an HP 800 Mediacenter PC. I am replacing the components from the HP in order to build a functioning core/hybrid for testing purposes.
Currently I have it benched and operational to the MCE desktop and access through the mce-admin page.
Initial problems to work through.
Myth TV - Currently I have installed a Leadtek Winfast 20 BT878 TV card that the system recognizes.
However I can't seem to get my head around the configuration. For the purpose of my testing the cable TV feed is a simple Comcast RG6 supplying non HD channels. While I can get into the Myth TV main menu, and the card seems to be recognized I can't seem to get it to scan for channels.
While this will be nice to have working I expect to control a Comcast receiver or Direct TV box for most of my installations.
This is a very important part of the installation for me as I expect to use the MCE core to control all of the other devices in a typical installation.
Unfortunately what I have currently doesn't seem to be working. I have a number of Gateway branded IR blasters with three outputs. The circuit board is stamped with Mitsumi 25-2139A. My intention will be to feed IR output into a Jobsite IR-CB2 or similar to control a large number of devices.
I have 2 Pocket PCs that I would like to get working. With 802.11 as well as bluetooth. I also would like to get a tablet PC working.
On the PPC's I have installed .Net but cannot DL the cab files. I also get a file size 0 on the .msi install file for the tablet PC.
