Users / configuring Logitech Mediaboard Pro keyboard (Bluetooth ps3)
« on: February 24, 2009, 03:17:05 am »
I tried following the ubuntu "how to" in the following hyperlink, a couple users have gotten this keyboard to work successfully in kubuntu.

When i scan for bluetooth devices while LMCE is running in the terminal, it doesn't find anything.

Am I on the right track, or is there a better way to get this device to work. I searched this forum and found that a couple of users were already using bluetooth keyboards.


I hate to admit it but it looks kinda cool.

It would be cool to have a more interact touch interface like this one in LMCE.

Installation issues / So close, yet so far

Install via CDs
Kubuntu 32bit
Mce rc2 32 bit

Plugged Ethernet cable into extra nic card. Internet seems to stop working after mce is installed. Did all the apt-get commands before the mce install. During the mce install i choose to install as dhcp setup.

After installtion and reboot screen goes black, I hit ctl alt f2 then logged in. Attempted to kernel to 2.6.28. Get near the end of the update guide and the command about copying to the boot folder says it can t find the 2.6.28 firmware.

Then updated the driver to nvidia 177.82, reboot. Plugged in hdmi and av wizard shows up. It crashes halfway thruogh so had to restart. No boot image shows up so I ran the avwizard from command, get through it sucessfully then screen goes back to command prompt. Hit ctr alt f7 and 8 and 9 and just a black screen.

I booted from cd to install 7.10 kubuntu and went through the wizard to find harddisks and nothing shows up. I have 2 250 gig drives one running vista eternity, but none of them show during the wizard. Any ideas anyone?

Developers / iphone has potential to be a fire chief remote
« on: June 05, 2008, 03:19:55 am »
Has anyone tried making any iphone applications for linuxmce. I know it has accelerometer just like the firechief remote. I bet its possible to make it just like the firechief remote. We need to take advantage of this device and the PS3 since the are so popular and so open.

Users / My first HTPC build. Need advice please!

I'm just not sure if the Board will work with Linux MCE, its got NVIDIA Chipset. I ve been researching a lot and it seems like theres a lot of Nvidia support for Linuxmce, I just don't know about this one. Possibly i could add a card that supports it, but hopefully it won't come to that. I have a samsung 46 1080p and my GOAL is to run LinuxMCE on it and have great blueray 1080p playback.  I just wish they made a videocard with HDMI output with audio through HDMI. ANY COMMENTS, SUGGESTIONS, OR ADVICE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED.  Thanks -Matt

Users / Running xbox and ps2 emules in LinuxMCE??

Has anyone ran a xbox and/or ps2 emules in LinuxMCE?

Installation issues / 0710 DVD and 0704 cds Both Failed, Need help
« on: February 01, 2008, 06:57:15 pm »
First off, I wanted to try Linux MCE out on my Sony VAIO PCV-RX550 Desktop (1.5-GHz Pentium 4, 256 MB RAM, 60 GB hard drive).   Will it even be possible because its so old and slow, also will it be able to handle UII atleast?

Also i was thinking about buying a 500GB drive and just Dual Booting it and running it on the 500GB drive and leaving Windows XP on the 60GB drive. Then whenever I get or build a new pc i can just more it into my new rig.

Oh and a stupid question, The dvd wouldn't boot from bios, Was I supposed to exstract the iso file then burn the exstracted files on the dvd??

Any comments or suggestion?
