Users / wake on lan query...
« on: October 02, 2007, 10:32:22 am »
Hi all...

Would anyone know if it is possible to WOL another PC from within LMCE ?

What i am after is perhaps a button you can click on to wake up the PC in question.

The reason i ask, is because i have a server which is only used for about 2 hrs a day at most, and would be silly to have it sit there running for no reason the rest of the time.

The core server will be on 24/7, but the other ( media ) server need not be.

Any one know how i could achieve this ?   btw..  i know nothing about linux.  I am hopefully migrating over soon.

Thank you

Hi all..
I am thinking of migrating over.
I will be setting up a core unit in the garage which will have 3 tv tuners connected.
In the house, i will have 2 media directors, and as i understand it, they do not need a hard drive.

My questions is this :
If i set up the core without alpha blending ( UI2 ), will this affect the MD's ?
If the answer is no, do the MD's have to have an nVidia based video card ? Or is all the alpha blending taken care of by the core ?

Sorry if i sound blonde, but i am still trying to get my head around all this.

The reason i ask all this, is because i have plenty of ATI based cards lying around...  however, in the demo video, it mentions thin clients...  how do you get UI2 on a thin client ??


Installation issues / new install will not start...

Hi all...
Just performed a new install from the DVD onto a spare machine.
However, after the install finishes, i get the KUBUNTU splash screen for about 3 minutes ( does nothing and progress bar does not move ).
After this, i get a black screen with this message :

/bin/sh: can't access tty; job control turned off

I have now tried this on 2 different machines with same results.

Any ideas ?

thank you

Hi all...
First time poster here.
I am currently a Media Portal user who is in need of a more stable solution.

I am thinking of trying LMCE, but i need these answered first :

1 - I have a Windows Home Server PC running as a NAS which only needs to be on about 2 hrs per day. Within MP  ( media portal ) i can WOL this NAS. Can this be done from within LMCE ?

2 - How are people cataloging their DVD TV Series Box Sets ?  I have 6 different DVD series box sets all ripped to my NAS in Divx format which i would like to catalog in this way :  Series -->  Season --> Episode.  Is this doable ? Or something similar...

3 - If i have a PC as a Media Director in the lounge room setup to network boot, does it still require a hard drive ?

thank you.  :-)
