Hello Everyone,

I would appreciate if someone who already has setup for a z-wave control can make a youtube tutorial to show how its set up with Linuxmce? ie. may be temperature control, lighting control or whatever you may have.

I also request for a Tutorial for multizone audio setup? I have read posts but a youtube tutorial would be nice.

Thanks.

Users / unable to update please take a look at source.list (SOLVED)
« on: July 05, 2014, 08:27:22 pm »
hello there,

I fired up my core after a long time. works fine but upon trying to update, I am not fetching sources.

My source.list look like following,
Quote
deb file:/usr/pluto/deb-cache ./

deb http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/ lucid beta2
deb http://deb.linuxmce.org/ubuntu/ 20dev_ubuntu  main

deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt  lucid-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb mirror://mirrors.ubuntu.com/mirrors.txt  lucid-security main restricted universe multiverse   

I commented out medibuntu repo just now to avoid error. still I sense something is wrong.

Any input?

Thanks.

Feature requests & roadmap / Airplay push
« on: January 22, 2013, 09:18:07 pm »
Hello guys,

Recently I came across an app on my Android device namely "imediashare" http://www.imediashare.tv/ , It is pretty awesome app. Upon running it simply detects any AV device on the home network and pushes the content towards that device to play on it. , Video, Audio, pictures etc.

Since Lmce core is our main media hub, It would be awesome if the core has such a capacity to recognize any AV playback capable device on the network and simply push the content to play on it.

I don't know. It is out there. It might be possible. The concept on Apple device is called "Airplay". :P

Installation issues / MD setup Nvidia driver installation failing. [SOLVED]
« on: December 04, 2012, 03:47:47 pm »
Hello guys,

I set up my system(hybrid core) with great help from L3mce. Upon setting up the MD I could not hit the AV wizard. the MD was on reboot loop with message on the boot load about failing nvidia driver installation.

L3mce helped me to comment out a line in moon42's etc/init.d/nvidia...(dont remember) and upon reboot I hit the AV wizard but had a very hard time to chose my resolutions. the AVwizard showed two option for the audio card but none worked. Basically I dont have sound coming out of the MD.
I have geoforce GT430 graphic card but I had to chose lower resolution as the driver is not installed.
I have Asus Xonar D2 PCI sound card on the system.
I believe the motherboard has an on board sound chip as well.
OH , not to mention, the GT430 should be able to decode sound too...!

dpkg --configure -a  does not give any output on the MD.

What should be my next step? Do I have to manually install the driver?

Please let me know. Thanks.

Unfortunately folloing the rule # 1 still I dont not see message on any orbiter about the hard drive.

The drive is also not locked under unknown devices .

Never mind,, it got solved by following http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php/topic,12505.0.html

Users / need help to set up logitech pro 9000 [solved]
« on: October 29, 2011, 11:23:16 pm »
Hello everyone,

I know some of you out there using logitech pro 9000 successfully. I have followed the steps from wiki but nothing comes up on my camera view under webadmin nor on orbiter.

Any inputs will be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Edit :
Sad to see, no body replied, however I got my webcam up and working but doing some here and there with the device template of generic analogue camera.
Also, wiki's page is really helpful as you will need those two packager namely, uvccapture and luvcview. the wiki does not specify about having them on core or MD so I installed on both.

Thank you.

Users / Mythtv upnp AV media server Question
« on: May 17, 2011, 03:41:14 am »
Hello guys,

Probably this must be a stupid question after using the lmce for over a year. anyways,,

Where are those directories located, namely music, pictures, video that appears on mythtv's AV media server?

I want to add some music to mythtv's music folder so that my external media player device can see it out of the box. I do not have much luck with mediatomb these days.

Thanks much in advance.

Users / support for nvidia GT 430 (SOLVED)
« on: March 10, 2011, 03:50:28 am »
This is probably asking too much at a time when developers are busy for 10.04.
I just purchased a card since I got a decent deal on and the card is GT 430 with 1gig ddr3 ram. here is my stupid questions,

I am still running 8.10 and the max nvidia driver supported is 195 glx
When I check nvidia website, i think the card I got will not or might not properly work with 195 as nothing says on their website. http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_195.55.html

I it possible I can manually install 260 driver on my MD? If yes, I think I also need to edit the nvidia-install.sh script under /usr/pluto/bin so that I does not look for 195. I am not sure but thats my understanding.

I do not want to bother developers on channel just for my case.

I hope someone will guide me here to get my one and only MD working. Why did I buy 430 , because , I tried 210 which made little too noise, I tried 240 it worked like charm but putting just 10$ more I got 430 which could be little future proof. Please help me to get my little puppy working,

Thanking in advance,

take care.

Users / Hulu not working_help please (SOLVED)
« on: January 17, 2011, 08:06:54 pm »
okey I am afraid to ask for the support since I have installed flash manually.

I setup Lmce from snapshot 23589. create and MD image and saw that youtube was missing flash player. so I downloaded installer.deb from adobe on MD's desktop. ssh into MD and ran dpkg -i installer.deb and I got my youtube videos working.

after that I installed Hulu follwoing wiki's instructions from MD's software module edit tab.

Now when clicking hulu from orbiter , I have a message saying

"version 0.9.8 is now available."

Hope someone helps.

Thank you.

Users / Dlink DSM-510 accessing files from Core via UPnP
« on: December 31, 2010, 12:40:53 am »
its been a long time since I have this device named Dlink DSM-510. It is a little network media player with hdmi and optical audio output. This device is very picky about the media formats it can play. for example, it only plays, avi, xvid, mpeg2 and 3 etc. I think I can share my story to help some one at the same time I do have few questions if some one can help.

Basically Like I said, you need to have some .avi video file in your core. when you connect this device with core from internal network it will see basically two upnp servers .

1. ) Mediatomb
2.) dcerouter mythtv AV media server

good news is, under mythtv media server, if you have recored shows there from myth. the player plays them out of the box. mythtv records the show in .mpg file and I believe this player does play mpeg format. So nothing much to do. Unfortunately we have our own movies or other video files under lmce directory and those might be .avi files.  The player sees those files under mediatomb server but they are grayed out and they might not play saying unsupported.

This is what I have done to get a little success.

we need to edit config.xml file located at /etc/mediatomb/config.xml with your favorite editor.

here is my config.xml look like..

The line appears in red are added by me in order to make this dlink see the .avi files and play them.

after you edit the file you need to restart the mediatomb server, I dont know how to do it so I reboot the entire system.
Note : those who keep their media on separate drive other than system drive. they need to map the drive for mediatomb database. you can add your public/data folder with + icon(see the picture attached, where the cursor is) from media tomb server user interphase.

found under...  webamin ---> Advanced ----> configuration ------> upnp server.

once you add the the folder it will appear on mediatomb's server.
Also,, Mediatomb does not auto scan any changes from the directory. hence if you add or remote any files it will not do therefore set the scan criteria by clicking the + with circle right next and set the seconds and basic scan. it will do the job. full scan might take longer. I dont know.

Thats all and you will see your public folder on your mediatomb server and it will play .avi files on DSM-510. Audio plays right out of the box. so,, nice little device to act as music spot.  I am talking over wireless connection.

Some of my movie files with .avi format streams flawless. and recorded show from mythtv from its AV media server plays flawlessly.

Thats all to say for now. I will my questions in the next post.
