Thanks, works for me too!

I can't speak for Seth but I'm running the latest 810 and 3101 remotes.  They use to work but then stopped (don't remember exactly when but it was a while ago).

The windows key pauses and resumes and I think 1 other button works but no other buttons do anything.  I was thinking of rebuilding from scratch to see if that solves the problem. Just haven't had the time yet.

Thanks Thom for the help.

I did a chroot to each moon and did an apt-get upgrade.  It updated a bunch of pluto packages but the remotes still aren't fully functional on the MDs.  The mouse keys, the arrow keys and the Windows key work but nothing else (tested in videos and in tv).

Did I update the packages correctly?

I'm trying to get my GYR3101US remote working in lmce.  If I plug it into the core then the buttons all seem to work.  If I plug it into any of my 3 MDs then the windows button pauses and that's pretty much it.

The remote is being detected as "GO Cordless GC1005M" (#1812) on all systems.

Any ideas what might be wrong?

Thanks in advance!

I have a CM11A connected to the rs232 port on my GC100.  Works fine.

Are updates included in the purchase of the PadOrbiter software?  Or are there any plans to continue updating it?  I don't really care about the new features but I hate spending $50 on software that was written for an old version of the OS even though it currently works with the latest beta of the OS.

I'm interested in finding the image too.  Any help is greatly appreciated!

I'm having the exact same problem.  I had no issues with 0710 but I can't get either of my 2 MDs to work with the 0810 beta.

I have 2x 3101 and 1x 3201.  Both work equally fine with an updated configuration in 0710.  The only downside to the 3201 is that it has a gold tinted faceplate instead of a silver one.

Not gonna happen. We will constantly improve the database, and make it faster, but we are staunchly against mirroring the file system.



Gotta agree with Thom on this, with one wish list item that may already be in the works or part of 810.  It would be really nice if there was a way in the web admin/media sync page to set type/media sub-type/file format on "all" files in a directory similar to the way setting all attributes currently works.  Not necessarily a dynamic thing such that any file put into a specific directory would automatically have attributes set, but for example browsing to a directory and setting every media file to type movie, or setting them all to TV show/title xyz/season 2.  

On the surface it may seem like organization by directory makes sense, but in my experience as a casual user Thom is 100% correct.  Filesystem transparent media organization is the best way to go.

To me this is one of lmce's biggest problems - it assumes that all computers, network, files, etc are owned by lmce and there are no other external applications required by the users.  If that's the case then lmce is perfect (other than the occasional quirkiness behavior).  Otherwise it has many shortcomings (my suggestion being one).  I agree that if lmce is all you want then the categorization is fine.  Personally I don't like storing 16TB of various types of 'video' (tv, movies, music videos, home videos, comical shorts, etc) in one directory and then having to go in and categorize it manually.  I would rather organize everything by directory (as has long been a standard in computing).  This also works well when having to upgrade or if something ever happened to the core which requires redoing all the work required to classify everything.

Live browsing could be implemented completely separate from cataloging.  I was speechless when I first installed lmce and found that this wasn't possible since every other alternative out there that I've tried has live browsing as the default.  To me that's a lacking feature.  I guess to everyone else that's what sets lmce apart from everyone else.

I wouldn't classify myself as a "casual user" since my media collection is probably 1000 fold that of other "casual users" here.  Setting it up as lmce requires would take far too much of my time.  I currently get around this by listing files by filename as this is close to live browsing but unfortuantely it still falls short.  I understand that everyone is different but I thought I would elaborate on why I think this feature might be enjoyed by others.  Please do not take any of this as a flame, just constructive feedback from someone who is appreciative of all the work that has been put into the project and the assistance I've received in the forums.

I would donate to see a live media browser (nfs, smb/cifs) instead of having to catalog media.  A good part of my media is updated daily and I prefer to keep my media organized by directory instead of by catalog.

I checked today and the logon attempts are down to 1-2 per second.

Is something messed up?

I have a username/password set and it's working because the media lists are being updated.  The account had read-only priviledges.  I changed it to full privs and I'm still seeing a constant hammering. 

You were right about double-counting authentication attempts.  There are about 5-6 per second (Event ID 680).

Users / Core is Hammering a Windows File Server
« on: February 17, 2009, 08:01:41 pm »
I added a Windows file server to the core and it's indexing the files.  The problem is that I added the file server over a month ago and it's hammering the file server constantly (~13 authentications per second, 24/7).  It's so bad that when I stream video from the file server the application I'm using stops playing.  The only resolution is to disable the account I provided the Core for authentication to the file server.

This is my ~5th time installing LMCE over the past year.  Previous installs didn't do this and I believe were set up exactly the same (I've been writing down my own steps when setting everything up).

The Core is correctly indexing the files.  The file server is 7TB and is pretty full which is why I've waited so long to report the issue. 

Did I do something wrong this time?  Any help is greatly appreciated!

Users / Re: GC-SP1 Question
« on: October 11, 2008, 05:14:21 am »
I understand the concept of how it works.  What I don't understand is how to get a low voltage output from a device like a receiver, tv, or projector.  Global Cache says to use a "wall adapter" but I can't figure out what that is, GC won't respond to inquiries and SmartHome doesn't know either.

What would I hook the wires up to on the GC-SP1?
