I did exactly as You Hari, and ended up like Valents screenshot. I would suspect the HW itself, just dont know how to test it.
MAybe to try in that direction?
Rule #1 - Be Patient - Rule #2 - Don't ask when, if you don't contribute - Rule #3 - You have coding skills - LinuxMCE's small brother is available: http://www.agocontrol.com

2. I also seen someone post something about telling what WAP to connect to but I dont under stand where to input this on the webpad, when I run TabletCFG there is a place to put in ESSID and Key and because I dont have any security i left these blank...
Yes we often locate a small USB HUB behind/near the screen or somewhere else in the room if we're using IR or WirelessWhats the longest USB cable You have used?Isnt 15m maximum?
Well we have installation taking both approaches...but I would say about 80% of people who are starting with a new property go for centralised hardware...in many ways its more practical especially if your screens are not that accessible... and also if you want a truly minimalistic installation.
And yes, you can always use matrix devices to switch digital video/audio to different rooms, and control those maxtrix devices through LinuxMCE, the pipe everything over CAT5/6. Personally, though, I think having small, invisible Vesa mount devices behind TVs is the better solution.I share Your opinion colin, ITX chasis are coimg out like mushrooms, and they are VESA mountable. Putting one MD per TV, and one Squezebox per room in which You want audio is the best way to go, for me. PRices are dropping every day, and in the near future we could have MDs for around 200$ (Ion platforms, Atom platforms....)
- I don't care to much about controlling my home from my tv screen, I'd rather use a touch screen on the wall and a handheld touch screen (I would like the iPhone, but that's for the future I read?). That would be possible with LinuxMCE, I think? However would it be ideal?
- We have a rather fancy living room with lots of glass walls. I would like to hang my TV on the wall and place my MD in another room, so there is nothing on the floor. Would that be possible?
- I would like multiroom audio. At the moment I am using iTunes on a Mac with the iPhone Remote and a airport and an AplleTV. Can all this be integrated? Or would it be better to use a multizone amplifier, and would it be possible to control this from a LinuxMCE Orbiter?
-The main idea about my setup would be a rather minimalistic design. I mean no MD or squeezeboxes throughout the house, but everything nicely stowed away (in a centralised room?).
- Anyone had a setup like this and would like to share experiences?
Thanks in advance for your help!
