Installation issues / LinuxMCE = a Nightmare
« on: August 16, 2007, 01:00:21 am »
Ok, I thought that they had finally created a version of linux that would be easy to install... HAHAHAHAHA wow... lol

Anyway... So LinuxMCE doesnt detect any of my media, anywhere on my network. It has abouta dozen buttons that I dont need and can't seem to get rid of (Lighting, security, Telecom, etc...) and every time I try to change the config of the thing it breaks the orbiter and I have to go through the hour long install all over again. It didn't detect my joysticks, my windows remotes, and it likes to jump from analog to DVI output randomly during setup so I have to have 2 monitors plugged in just to keep up.

How, on earth, are you guys using this at all? It just seems hopelessly broken to me.

Users / Could I watch movies over a wireless connection?

If I build an LMCE box, I will have to connect it to my network via a Wireless Nic. My router has a speed of 54MB while wireless (I havent tried it before though)

If I get a 54MB wireless nic, will that be fast enough to watch movies that are stored on my main computer on a windows shared drive?

Users / TV Serial Port

I'm thinking of building a LMCE box out of spare parts I have... one of the primary reasons I want to is that I have a VERY weird Insignia HDTV that I can not control with any universal remote (I've tried them all)

One thing I was wondering about: My TV doesn't have an RS232 port, but it does have something labeled "Serial Port" but it's a white connector with several in-line pins almost like what you'd find on a motherboard. Anyone know what this is? Or if I just need an adapter?
