Users / MythWeb Question
« on: August 21, 2007, 02:57:18 am »
so this is weird.

When I go to Recorded Programs, where you are suppose to be able to click on them and download them it errors with "Firefox doesnt know what to do with myth:// protocol"

I noticed that when resting my mouse over the link to download it, its the local address (ie. myth:// However when I connect to it local, via a computer on the same network with the hostname(in this case http://mythbox:8081) the link is correct: http://mythbox:8081/moviething.mpg.

I am confused because also it only does this on windows machines. My kubuntu 7.04 laptop with konqueror and firefox, have the correct path for downloading the recorded programs.

I tried manually setting the servers name that apears to the outside world in the apache2.conf file with ServerName tag.

Any help would be greatly appricated. WOuld like this to work especialy for my friends who still use windows..ha.

Users / Quick DHCP question
« on: August 14, 2007, 08:16:46 am »
I am not using this Hybrid 0740 machine as a DHCP server, therefore I disabled it. However it still is showing up as 2 IP Addresses. One External and one internel, along with the name router.

How do i make my machine use only one IP address. (I don't want Boot over net, this is the maaster station)


Users / USB-UIRT to Learn a new remote
« on: August 06, 2007, 07:08:53 pm »
So, I am trying to get my remote control to work. The remote does not have a module for LIRC, so I would like to know how to setup my USB-UIRT device and have it learn the keys I press on the remote.

Is there are easy tutorial somewhere on how to do this, seems all I find is how to setup USB-UIRT, but I cant get the remote to work.

Kinda Confused, any help would be greatly appricated.

My System runs Ubuntu 7.04

Users / Still a little confused about diff of Core and MDs
« on: July 23, 2007, 08:51:52 pm »
So I put my TV capture card in my Core? or MD? or both?
Do the IR devices to turn on my TV and Reciever connect to my MD? or Core? (This one seems simple but would like to make sure)
Does the MD need a HDD at all if its PXE booting?

So if I want to add new devices to my MD(such as Bluetooth), I plug it into the MD I want, but configure it on the Core? Cause the MD is Volitile, right?

In the case of IR devices, if I am suppose to have IR devices connected to the MD(See above question #2) do I need multiple IR Recievers for each entertaiment device. For example, say I have a TV, VCR, and a Reciever. Each can be controlled by their remotes, which work via IR, so I need 1 IR Reciever for each device? Cause isn't IR "line of site" comm.  Furthermore do the IR entertaiment devices (TV, VCR, Reciever) IR sensor need to be pointed directly at the IR device going to the MD?

I can understand that these questions are elemantrary, but its more of a reasurance than anything else.

Thank you a bunch for your replies.
