Feature requests & roadmap / Web Content
« on: March 02, 2008, 08:28:51 pm »

I usually watch video/podcasts and streaming audio/video. For video/podcasts I use Miro ( and for streaming I use shoutcast.

Is it possible to integrate both funcionalities (I don't know if it's possible to wrap these two software in LinuxMCE's UI)?

Talking about content, how does LinuxMCE distinguish an ogg audio file from an ogg video file? I tried to open some video ogg files and LinuxMCE plays them as audio, no picture.

Best regards!

Installation issues / Asus P7131 Analog
« on: February 22, 2008, 01:50:58 pm »

I installed 0710beta3 on the following hardware:

asus p4b533
p4 2.0ghz
512 ram
asus mycinema p7131 Analog (not dual/hybrid/dvb), FM radio, S-Video/Composite Video-in and ir remote (through tiny jack on the pci).

This analog tvtuner loads the following modules:

Tvtime works with this card, i can tune and watch channels. At first I didn't have any sound, although alsa "sees" two sound cards, and all volumes are up using alsamixer. I found that this card has an audio-ouput socket, so i used a cdaudio cable and connected it to my motherboard's sound card and i get sound, mono sound. Maybe this is something to do with the cable or mobo's socket i used. I will try connecting to cdaudio input of the mobo and maybe try to use saa7134_oss since lmce seems to be using it.

Mythtv works too, no egd or xmltv yet, i just wanted to see if i could tune channels, sometimes mythbackend dies, a quick reload does the job.

Now the real deal... I'm stuck at creating a template in linuxmce for this device. I guess this template would include tuner, tuner's audio, composite/s-video input, fm radio and ir remote. I usually don't code, except for some bash scripts and I have only been using lmce for 4 days, I'm still kind of lost.

Tips, hints, pointers, help is apreciated. You can also find me at #linuxmce on freenode.

Best regards!
