Installation issues / Re: DVD drive and HAUPPAUGE PVR150 [SOLVED]

It finally works.
These 2 problems were due to a defective dvd drive. I changed it and now everything is OK


Installation issues / DVD drive and HAUPPAUGE PVR150 [SOLVED]

I have a strange problem. Maybe you faced it already.

I had problems with my nvidia geforce 8600 card, I changed it for a 7300 one.
I have a correct DVI connection now.

Till I changed the card I did sereval installations .
MythTV worked but I could not use the CD/DVD drive which is the computer to watch DVD movies.
Then I have no optical drive in my menu and I can only watch DVD movies if I switch to KDE.

MythTV does not work. It worked in the installations I did before but this time I get errors about loading the #37 mythtv player and the #28 Disc Drive [apparently the dvd drive].

How can I fix it without re-installing everything?

Thank you for your help

It works now...

Thank you for your answer.

After many tries, I ended by making it work just through the vga connector.
Every try I made with the dvi/hdmi connexion ended by a failure.
So for the while I will stick to that port till I change for a 7300 card instead.
What is still amazing is that all the installation [kubuntu and LinuxMCE-7.10Beta3]
was made through the dvi port. I did not use the vga plug at all....

Hi everybody

I am facing a strange problem.

I have a nvidia 8600 gt card.
After having installed Kubuntu 7.10 and and the nvidia driver, I could get a 1280 X 720 resolution.
After having installed LinuxMCE 7.10 Beta3, the AVwizard probably starts but I cannot see anything but a blue screen.
In a new console [alt+F2 e.g], if I run startx, I get the kde desktop but at a 640 x 400 resolution.
I know that the AVWizard is running [through the blue screen]
After all changes I tried I was thrown back to the 640 x 400 resolution.
In other words LinuxMCE does not accept any resolution except the 640 x 400 resolution.

I have an hybrid system hooked to a LCD TV by the dvi plug.

Do you have any idea to get the kubuntu resolution?

thank you for help


Installation issues / making a hybrid system after a core-only install

Hi everybody

I have installed linuxMCE 7.10Beta3 just as a core-only system.
Actually this kind of system is not the one i need for the while
and instead of re-installing everything I would like to know if it
is possible to make my system hybrid, and above all I would like
to know how I can make this change.

Thank you for your help
