Users / question about mkv-playback
« on: October 23, 2013, 11:01:07 am »
I noticed, that if I have mkv-files with ac3-sound and bitrates higher than 384, or DTS, then the playback on my MD (asrock 330, ion-platform) is quite choppy. If I remux the files to only ac3 with 384kbit/s, then they all play nicely.
So I was wondering, if this is a limitation in the playback-software or of my hardware. What do you think? By the way, when setting up this md, dts-test completed successfully.

Users / problems with medibuntu?
« on: October 15, 2013, 02:03:11 pm »
when I try apt-get update on 1004, I get this at the end:

is this normal?

Users / samba password
« on: October 02, 2013, 12:15:16 pm »
samba password expired? last night I did an apt-get upgrade and I think there was also along the lines of smb included.
Anyways this morning I was not able to access my fileshares on the server. I had to go to the webadmin and change the password for my user. So I'm guessing the password for smb actually expired- is this by design?

Users / virtual machine +tv-card
« on: September 04, 2013, 04:57:21 pm »
I was wondering...if I was going to tinker around with something like 12.04...and I wanted to also keep my running system intact...I could try to virtualise it. So far no problem. But what I was wondering about, is for example my TV-card, that is residing in my server. Is it actually possible to utilise it from within a virtual machine?

Users / youtube and the Blueman group [solved-partly]
« on: May 27, 2013, 02:50:16 pm »
at least thats how it looks like, when I'm trying to watch anything on youtube with lmce. Is there something I can do to get all colors in youtube? Right now everything looks completely blueish.

Users / autotag seems hanging
« on: May 18, 2013, 12:11:44 pm »
I'm having a bit of an issue with autotagging. I will start it in a directory with some tv-shows in it. The script will start and shows the log. There it will download a zip-file and start expanding it...and thats the point where its hanging...for hours, even days. The webadmin will not respond anymore and the whole system slows down to a crawl.  I don't really have an idea how to solve this issue.

Users / qoribter reconnects to old device
« on: May 04, 2013, 08:27:04 pm »
I recently did a reinstall of lmce. After I was done I wanted to get qorbiter running again. So far so good, but it always wants to connect to the device from the old install. When the startup-screen shows, I tried many times to change the entry for the orbiter-number, but it doesn't work. I uninstalled qorbiter, deleted the appdata..but somehow it always comes back.

Installation issues / Geforce GT610
« on: April 28, 2013, 09:58:15 am »
just a question about hdmi-sound with this card. I popped it in my more last night and let the AVWizard run. When it came to selecting a soundcard, I saw my soundblastercar (which would be removed later) and my TV-Card. My plan is to change my setup in the house a little, so that the core would be connected to my TV via hdmi and also deliver the sound. So far I have an MD doing that, but that one will be reassigned to my projector. However in order for this to work, I need the hdmi-sound on this card, but I couldn't select it so far.

Installation issues / new soundcard
« on: March 29, 2013, 07:11:32 pm »
Right now I got an audigy2 as in my core. But spdif is not working as it should. So was thinking about an alternative. I found a very cheap soundcard with spdif coaxial ...digitus ds-33700 which uses a via vt1723 chip. Does anybody know, of this will work with once 10.04?

Installation issues / 8400gs resolution
« on: March 27, 2013, 10:19:36 pm »
I got myself a new projector -optoma hd300x- and hooked it up to my core via HDMI-cable. Right now my problem is, that I cannot get a higher resolution than 1024x768. Any higher than that and it will always revert.
So I was wondering, how I can get this to comply. Does anyone have an idea?

On a side note, I have a audigy 2 zs in my core too, which I have trouble with spdif coax sound. in alsamixer, i only see spdif optical and if I turn it off, I get sound on coax, but trying dts for example gives me nasty hissing sounds. I know l3mce said he is working on it ( god knows, he is working on a lot of stuff).

Installation issues / tagging episodes
« on: March 16, 2013, 08:33:46 pm »
It seems the new autotagger 1.5 doesn't like my files anymore. Instead of tagging the files and putting covers it shows this:
Quote
Found Overriding Media Sub Type::0
***************No scanner for this file type, file complete*****************
**************************End File*****************************
Using the tvdb doesn't work either. I can select the show and season and get this:
Quote
Series ID::82459Duplicate entry '4684-0-0-0' for key 'PRIMARY'
After that in the whole season one episode gets tagged...interestingly enough, this one episode is also then recognised by the autotagger.

Installation issues / Nas not being detected
« on: March 14, 2013, 07:08:53 pm »
I got a Seagate Blackarmor 220 at home. I created a public share without the need for credentials. I thought LMCE would detect it and ask me to use it, but so far nothing. I even unlocked all unknown devices again- they got detected one by one- but the nas never showed up. I can access it via ip, my windows8 box sees it too.

Installation issues / Phones do not register anymore
« on: February 27, 2013, 08:43:36 pm »
I just encountered a problem with my Gigaset 610ip. I have two handsets of this model and none of them is currently registering. I even went to delete them from the webadmin, reload router, re-add them ( as generec sip-phone, as I have always done before), but for the live of me, they won't register. The webadmin of the gigaset always shows the status of those phones as "registration failed".

Users / New Asterisk feature or is it my Gigaset?
« on: February 06, 2013, 09:16:11 pm »
Okay, this sounds probably stupid on my part, but you're used to that from me, I suppose.
I'm using a Gigaset 610 IP together with LMCE and thats all working nicely so far. Today, when I came home I noticed a missed phonecall. Upon checking it on my Gigaset, I was astounded to see the full name of the caller in the display. It was somebody I knew, but didn't have the number for, so clearly this info came from somwhere else.
Right now I'm a bit confused, where this nice feature comes from...is Asterisk now automatically doing a reverselookup or is this something my Gigaset does on its own?
I'd appreciate your input.

Installation issues / install experience on RC1
« on: January 12, 2013, 09:30:04 pm »
Today I did an install of lmce 10.04 RC1
I got a core with an older AMD dual core on an Asrock MB, 2GB Ram, 2x2TB hdd, and a Geforce 8400GS, a Soundblaster Audigy2 ZS with an added Coax SPDIF out and for TV a Hauppauge Nova HD-S2.
I have one MD running- or rather still installing- an Asrock Ion 330.
The install itself ran pretty straight forward, no problems there. In contrast to the last snapshot I Installed, my mediafiles were all detected an added to the database immediately.
What I did find out during my install so far is this:
  • the TV card gets detected and preconfigured, what is missing is the firmware, so I had to install linux-firmware-nonfree manuall. I don't know if this is behaviour by design. I remember running 8.10 rc1 or rc2 that process wasn't neccessary anymore.
  • The soundcard in my core is not working or not working as it should. Its very weird. KDE desktop complains immediately, that this card is not working. I can open Alsamixer and check everything. This card has an IO-Pinout for SPDIF in-and out. I could use it for optical or coax. I use the Output as coax. Alsamixer only reports a spdif optical out. When I mute this one, I get sound, but DTS or Digital give me only some hissing. I did have this working before. Now I',m a bit at a loss.
  • I believe the graphicsdriver for Nvidia is still the 260 version. I remember reading a number of threads here as well as from my own experience, that this driver causes a lot of artifacts and distortions. I once installed the 295 version, which as for me a bit of a hassle. I later changed to a seemingly easier approach in installing nvidia-current. However I believe that version is by now around 303 or something. I don't know if this causes the immesureable number of crashes I had with mythtv. If there is a better way of getting rid of the aforementioned artifacts, please let me know.
  • Right now I'm still running the install of my MD and Sarah is looking at me very sternly, because we both wait for the xmltv util to be finished for some hours now

So far these are my findings. I will update this, as soon I find something else.
