Users / Access file server on external network
« on: May 29, 2009, 01:10:16 am »
Hi All,

I am just wondering whether it is possible to map (and set to store) data that sits on the other side of your external NIC?

I know this sounds a little silly, but my network is in two segments, 1 is my main PC network ( which my LMCE box external nic connects to. I then have my LMCE network ( All my mds etc are on the lmce side. I do have a large file server sat in my main network. Am I able to map this to LMCE without moving it over?

Hi All,

Is it me, or is the following remote control the same as the Fiire Gyro one? It looks identical.

hi all,

i am having problems installing of the dvd (thanks Paul, it arrived the other day).

when it is booting up, it hangs for around 5 minutes on the kubuntu splash screen, and thn frops into Busy Box v1.1.3 and gives the error : "/bin/sh cant access tty job control turned off" i am then given the prompt (initramfs).

im not sure where to go from here, this is the third install and it happens each time. is it a drivers/hardware issue?

Users / Min spec for MD?

Hi Guys,

I was just wondering whether there was a minimum spec for the Media Directors. I have seen some hype regarding these nifty devices:

They are a thin client that goes into a wall like a socket. It has the DVI out and a USB port, perfect for them dongles. Is all the processing done on the DCERouter box? Or is some done on the MD?

Hi All,

I was hoping you could point me in the right direction. I have been trying to setup a LMCE system and test by booting a generic PC over the network and test.

My network is setup as follows:

Clients: - 254

LMCE is setup to run as a dhcp server with a scope of to .254. It gives out the nameserver and gateway to be

When trying to boot from PXE, when trying to mount nfs, I get connection read:connection refused.

When I added the MD, I added it in devices, put in the MAC address, updated, then "Setup Diskless MDs" and then did a quick reboot on the router.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Hi all,

I am fairly new to LinuxMCE (well installed it for the first time last night, broke it tonight, and now rebuilding it :S). I am currently testing it on my main Desktop PC:

Pentium 4 2.8GHz
Asus System board (K8V-MX)

I don't have a TV card in there yet, put DVDs and NAS media plays fine. I was wondering if there was a "certified" hardware spec out there. Maybe a list of the ultimate TV cards, system boards etc. This would make building the system much easier.
