Users / media harddrive
« on: May 16, 2008, 12:03:47 pm »
Ok. So now ive installed linux mce on a 20gb harddrive, and have two unused 500gbs hdds in the core. Ive made a raid out of them from the admin site. the raid is device 37 and called /dev/md0. Now i want to use this to store all media and do the sharing on the network. How would i do this the best way?

Im thinking of copying /home/* to it and then mounting it to /home. Is this the linuxmce way or is there a better way to fix it?

I dont understnd the pluto structure thingy (PK_Users) but i guess it should be like that?

Will they get discovered by the core? I will run thin clients at my tvs. And probobly have to ad stuff to them like an IR reciever. Im thinking USB-UIRT. Will the core recognize it when the netbooted client is booted?

Im rebuilding my network at home, trying to organise/centralise everything into one system and lMCE is the obvious choice!

Now, im dont know what HW is needed for specific features. And if i didnt have a budget it would be no problem. =)

What i want is a backend server that has all the media and tv-tuners and whats needed. I have one TV with 720p and another not HD tv. Ip-telephony to.

So i want to be able to watch my dvds that ive ripped to the server and digital-tv on my to tv-sets. Integrated telephone? And i also would want musik in every room but dont know how to do it. All controlled with the same remote. One for me and one for  the Mrs. In the future i also want to integrate z-wave to control the lights.

And i want to make this as cheap as posible without loosing functionality.

1 backend server
1 HD thin client?(720p)
1 normal tv thin client
telephone hw?

Is there anything more needed and how should i build them?


Users / MD tips

Im just starting to build my linuxMCE network and im thinking about the Media Director that i should connect to my tv. Its a: Samsung 42" Plasma PS-42C96HD (HD Ready) so its not full HD.

What i want is an cheap MD that can play HD movies with surround sound (dont have an amp yet so ill use the tv builtin stereo sound for now). I can build it myself or if there is some prebuilt allready like . The problem is im no good in hardware, whats good and not, whats cheap, and most importantly whats needed to be able to do the job.

So the short ver. I want a md that is small, cheap and kan play HD movies.


Installation issues / cli installation?
« on: December 03, 2007, 02:10:06 pm »
Im going to install LinuxMCE but i cant find any info about an cli installer? Im going to install linuxMCE on a server with no special gfx card and i would like NOT to install X on it. Is there a backend install method? Then i have a few clients that i want to boot up through the network.

Is this posible?
