Users / Problem ripping a DVD
« on: April 24, 2007, 10:46:15 am »

I've been able to launch a Media Director via PXE, and make it work, thanks for your advices.

Now I'm trying to watch a DVD on the Media Director, and rip it. Watching the DVD seems to go alright (the only trouble is with the image sizing, it's full screen where it shouldn't be, so the image is a bit stretched... I'm searching to fix this too.)

But when I try to rip the DVD, I choose the place where to save the ripped file, say OK and I get a message that says "You can only rip media stored on a CD/DVD drive."

I really don't understand why I'm getting this message... I'm ripping it from a CD/DVD drive  :-[.

Has someone a clue about this?


Users / Configuring Media Director
« on: April 23, 2007, 02:14:25 pm »

I don't understand something with how the media directors work in LinuxMCE. I've installed LinuxMCE on a fresh Ubuntu install, configured it via pluto admin, everything went well. Now I'd like to configure a media director, so I've followed the instructions of this page of the wiki, that means configured the BIOS of the computer to boot via network (PXE). Everything looks to go well, and I get the "We announced ourselves to the router. Use a Orbiter to continue.", and here I'm stuck.

I don't really understand where I should have an orbiter working? On the server? How can I configure an Orbiter to work? I thought I was going to have the graphical interface on the Media Director, and be able to control it via an IR remote control (as a MythTV or Windows Media Center).

Can someone help me with that? Thanks.

Installation issues / LinuxMCE installer Proxy configuration
« on: March 29, 2007, 12:57:38 pm »

I'm having some troubles with the LinuxMCE installer. I'm behind a proxy and its configuration doesn't seem to be detected by the software.

I've configured the proxy in Ubuntu under System > Preferences > Network Proxy. I've tried to use the automatic proxy configuration as well as the manual configuration. I've also added the line :
in the /etc/environment file.

The proxy is working in the terminal windows, in firefox and in other gnome apps.

When I launch the "Install Linux MCE" shortcut, it first asks if I want to install the media playback and remote control. I choose Yes, and click Forward. There it freezes for several time and I eventually get a window that says that it couldn't connect to the internet and asks if I want to configure my network manually.

Even after configuring manually the network, it doesn't seem to work, I always get a network connection failed kind of message.

Someone has an idea or has had the same trouble?
