Users / Anyware GP-IR01BK will it work?
« on: April 29, 2008, 06:46:18 am »
Will this work, it looks like it's an OEM MCE remote, and it sounds like it's bigger brother the GP-IR02BK will work with the MCEUSB config.
I must confess that I am still waiting for my Torrent to download, so I don't have LinuxMCE. I have been following the project for about a year now, and v1.1 (Kubuntu Development?) worked, but took three days to install, and it was sluggish. 704RC1 DVD failed at start up and I am now trying 710RC1. However, I am unsure of what difference there are between 704 and 710, besides the Ubuntu core.

Users / Re: Anyone else excited about Hauppauge's new HD PVR
« on: April 29, 2008, 06:40:01 am »
Not likely that MythTV will support, thus not likely that LMCE will support it. Probably the same as the other HD solutions such as HVR-1250, HVR-1600, and HVR-1800. All are good cards, but currently only the ATSC works. This is why I may be getting a dated PVR-150 before this. Even if it only has 9-months of TV. I don't watch antenna much, mostly internet TV and DVDs.

Users / Re: Differences between Pluto and LinuxMCE
« on: April 29, 2008, 06:36:01 am »
Your question and title are inconsistent. I will try to answer both. Title: LinuxMCE incorporates Pluto, thus they are not competitors. Text: Yes, this is perfectly possible, as long as you are using a linux version of the software. It may take some digging to unearth the command line, but once there you can install whatever you want. The Windows client and Java clients are only applications, therefore you cannot do anything with those.

Users / Nintendo DS orbiter?
« on: April 29, 2008, 06:30:05 am »
Is it possible to create a nintendo DS orbiter?
From what I know, the DS has a non-writing download speed of 128KB/s. So, assuming images of 128*64, 14-bit color for the media (generic icons for the UI), it can download 5.3 icons per second, therefore it is possible, but is there a wide enough userbase to warrant an orbiter? I know little about programming in C/C++, which is the only viable programming language for the DS. Just an idea. Another possible device is the PSP.
