Users / Any motherboard suggestions?
« on: November 23, 2013, 03:03:21 am »
Good day guys, I've been running 10.04 fine until my motherboard crapped out beyond no repair.  I've been looking at the posts but haven't come up with any suggestions for a new motherboard other than someone suggesting to look at Andrew's setup.  does anybody have any suggestions that has been proven to work with 10.04 or 12.04 which i more than likely will step up to? appreciate any input. thanks

Fellas, kind of confused here. I have my core which has the pvr, usbuirt, and the directv sat reciever. I created a template which works.  The tv in the family room has a MD with gyration remote and i use the windows orbiter, but neither sends the command to the usbirt to change the channel on the core or the md.  can you guys take a look at my admin setup and tell me where i went wrong. the template is the "disone" added under the usbuirt. everything including schedulesdirect is setup.  I can send a command in the admin and it works but nothing happens when i use an orbiter.  Thanks in advance.

Good day and happy holidays gentleman, Somehow my mythtv suddenly stopped working and began asking for a database update and will not allow any other setup options to become available.  what can i do? Is it possible to uninstall and reinstall just mythtv or do i need to re-install the entire system? I have everything setup well, it would suck to have to do a reinstallation. thanks in advance guys.

Users / internet radio streaming not working?
« on: November 03, 2012, 07:34:56 pm »
Good day to all, I was checking the forum to see if anyone else was having similar issues regarding trying to add a inter radio stream.  I followed the wiki to the T several times and nothing ever shows up. I'm using 1004, and as i previously mentioned i tried several times. Is there something else that i missing from the the instructions in the wiki guys?

Users / Best way to control STB via usb-rs232?
« on: October 09, 2012, 06:03:41 pm »
Greetings,
I made a few attempts to use the directv.pl script found here:http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Controlling_DirecTV_Set_Top_Box_(STB)_via_USB_or_Serial. Unfortunately anything i put in the "External channel change command" parameter, makes mythtv stop working. I can control the stb in windows, but myth/lmce is giving me problems. Has anybody done this or know how to? any help will be appreciated. thanks in advance.

Users / problems with zotac ion?
« on: June 23, 2012, 10:06:24 pm »
Greetings to one and all,

anybody else having difficulties getting zotac ion board running on 10.04? I tried installing 10.04 some 7 months ago and the same issues, so i went back to my 8.10 system which works with the board fine.  I'm trying 10.04 again, (which is the best and easiest install since i started off with 7.04 but i digress). anyway i'm giving 10.04 a shot again because i can use UI2 with my other MD fine if i upgrade to 10.04. with my zotac ion i get to a lmce splash screen point where it says "loading essential drivers", "Mounting file system",installing nvidia driver this may take a few minutes". then hangs there for about 20 mins, then says "loading lmce" and hangs until you get an all black screen.  now i would think that was a driver issue, has anybody else had this issue before i go fiddling around with it? :)

Users / Control Mythtv/satellite via usb
« on: February 04, 2012, 02:09:38 am »
I've searched the forum and came up on a few posts regarding channel changing for satellite box connected to the core via usb, all of which pertain to the use of a usbirt.  Can somebody give some pointers in using a usb? would the TuneToChannel.sh script apply? thanks

Users / VDR control
« on: November 27, 2011, 01:12:05 am »
Good evening, Is it possible to use VDR/HVR 1600 and script like this to control my H24 satellite box:

http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Controlling_DirecTV_Set_Top_Box_%28STB%29_via_USB_or_Serial#External_Links.

 Even though I am in the US, i would much rather use VDR given that I will be using svideo because the integration seems more seemless?

Users / gps
« on: October 03, 2011, 06:34:37 pm »
Gentlemen, being that I am clueless in regards to this, I have a question for your brilliant minds. What is the feasibility of using GPS for proximity detection. Taking into consideration the conflicts that arise from using multiple Bluetooth dongles in close proximity, would GPS be more usable in terms of location accuracy? Perhaps entering a predetermined GPS area can trigger commands from a cell phone Orbiter to lmce? I was wondering this for a while, but I never was going to ask until I came upon several android apps such as tasked and automatit that does this, but i don't know if it would be possible or useful for lmce?

Users / sharp aquos auto detect *partially solved*
« on: September 19, 2011, 07:31:49 pm »
good day gentlemen, I'm just getting around to having one of my MD's control my sharp Aquos LC46D64U which is stated as plug-n-play. I plugged in a Dynex DX-UBDB9 (tried another cable i bought off ebay) but something doesn't want to play.  The detection script runs, but no joy. Before i dig in, any thing i should look for? thanks

Users / need help please..Fatal error: mysql error
« on: January 08, 2011, 01:49:51 am »
hello, After adding a touch orbiter to my core and then then back onto the admin site, i try to select anything but i get:

"Fatal error: mysql error: [1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '? ORDER BY Description ASC' at line 3] in EXECUTE(" SELECT Room.Description, PK_Room FROM Room WHERE Room.FK_Installation=? ORDER BY Description ASC") in /var/www/lmce-admin/include/adodb/adodb-errorhandler.inc.php on line 77"

After reading the forums i was hoping that maybe someone can tell me there is a better solution than reinstalling lmce. everything works fine, its that error message when trying to do anything on the admin site. thanks in advance

Users / Floorplan verification
« on: December 16, 2010, 06:22:52 pm »
Ahey guys, i just wanted to verify whether or not floorplans have been completely removed from ui2 alpa blending. I am aware the known bug regarding layer of multiple floorplans, but i was able to at least have the 1st floor show up in ui2ab. Now nothing shows up and i'm using the same floor plan i was using months ago.  can anybody tell me if they have theirs showing up in ui2 in the latest snapshot please. thank you.

Users / Greetings to all, back from exile!!! help wanted
« on: November 11, 2010, 04:03:28 pm »
Good day to all, i was forced into linuxmce exile and i'm back trying to get my system back up and running from the latest snapshot. I've been reading up on all the changes and let me say thanks to all who have contributed to this project. good work guys. I have the core setup ok, other than the source list list issues which i somewhat resolved with this post:

http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=10917.0.
 i was having trouble with the MD script /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh before changing the source list. it would loop with the common crt-c request.  anyway, now now it gets to the point where the md script ends with a "Password for root on localhost?" request.  i'm not sure what the issue is, can someone help an old lmce junky out, i've been going through withdrawal symptoms lol.

Users / anybody else ever have this issue?
« on: March 29, 2010, 05:02:52 am »
I bought a hvr1600, I assume the atsc tuner should show up in the myth card setup as a separate tuner, should I add it by adding it as a separate card? Again has anybody run into this problem?

Users / which card(s) for multiple satellite receivers
« on: March 18, 2010, 01:06:36 am »
Which pvr or hvr would you guys suggest for multiple satellite receivers? I will probably go for 2  dish network receivers with dual tuners hooked up in my core/laundry room. Thanks
