Installation issues / Network Share not showing up
« on: October 22, 2011, 05:09:29 am »
I mounted a network share as shown in the wiki, but it doesn't seem to be showing any of the media on my MD's or on the core.  One thing I did not do, is have any local storage.  So it asks for /dev/sda5 and I say no, since I only have video/audio/etc on the network share.  Do I need this for it to show up?

I had a 0710 install working, but then the HDD died, and I am not doing a 0810 install using the same hardware.  I have gotten to the point where I turn on a MD and it should PXE boot as before and be detected by the core, but it is not, it fails to find pxelinux.cfg/<mac address> or pxelinux.cfg/default

I checked to see that there is nothing at all in my /tftproot/pxelinux.cfg/ folder, and I also found a post where they had the same problem (,2717.0.html).  This machine is getting .80.131 as an IP, which doesn't show in my Unknown Devices screen on the admin.

I tried to manually add a MD, so when I go to the device screen to add it, and I select Add Device on the Media Directors page, it automatically selects "Media Director < Computers" as the device filter (type 8), but there is nothing in the device template to choose from!  It says if I know the template id I can just type it, so I tried type 8 but that doesn't work.  Any suggestions on how to add the media directors?

Oh, I did look at this:
That doesn't seem to apply, this is a new install on a system that used to work fine.

Also, I noticed in the DVD Installation section of the install guide it says to run a diskless setup command.  I did not do a DVD install but I am now running the command anyway to see if this fixes the issue.

Users / 710 system HDD failure, should I reinstall as 810?
« on: June 13, 2011, 04:10:58 am »
I had a HDD failure in my 710 LMCE system (it was RAID5, and then the 2nd drive had data failure before replacement arrived), and now I am about to reinstall LMCE from scratch.  You can read about my system in the wiki, but the old system had a few issues.  Install was a pain, but I worked through most of the issues.  The only major issue I had left was that after being on 24/7 for a week or two, the system would skip while playing videos (even low-res ones that it shouldn't have an issue with).  I am trying to decide if I should use the latest 810 snapshot, and go for that instead.  In your opinion, if you were me, would you go with the devil you know (710) or the devil you don't (810)?

Users / Anyone gotten a MicroClient jrMX to work as a MD?
« on: March 16, 2011, 07:44:11 pm »
I have an older one of these units (the Jr, only 200MHz), and just saw they have a newer one out.  This would make a great basic MD, throw it on an old 15" LCD with a VESA mount and you don't even see the unit!

I've yet to find a reason why this happens on some movies but not on others.  I have movie.avi and - when I play movie.avi it says "File not found /path/to/movie.avi" and goes back to the menu.  I can go to the KDE desktop and select the file and it plays fine, so it doesn't seem to be the file itself.  If I remove the subtitle file the movie plays fine in LMCE without subtitles.

I searched the wiki and the forums, and googled for it with no luck.  There was another person that had this problem awhile ago and I messaged him and he said he gave up and switched to XBMC.

Users / ZWave device not turning on/off reliably
« on: July 20, 2010, 12:21:54 am »
I added some in-wall dimmers, and they aren't turning on/off reliably when I start a show.  I tried manually editing the lighting scenario, but it didn't matter.  If I press 1 or 2 on the remote they do turn on/off eventually, but it takes 30sec or more when I do it this way.

Has anyone else had this problem?  I bought these dimmers:

Oh I'm running 710 or maybe its 704, its not 810

Users / Have a button that goes to a webpage?
« on: December 12, 2009, 05:07:23 pm »
I think this is a simple thing, I just can't figure out how to do it!

I'd like to add a button or something that goes to a webpage when you click it (the webpage auto-refreshes).  I'd like it to be off the main menu somewhere if possible.  How do I add this?  I have 710.

Users / Video skips after I turn on a MD
« on: October 26, 2009, 09:36:04 pm »
I just figured out why my core seems to randomly stop skipping.  It appears that after I turn on a diskless MD it slows down the core.  At first I thought it was just MKV files, but it seems any video will skip.  I can reset the core and then its fine!  Any ideas what to do to fix this?  I am still running 0704.

Users / ZWave hardware
« on: October 21, 2009, 10:58:12 pm »
I'm still on 0710, I haven't had a reason yet to upgrade to 0810.

I'm looking to finally trick out my whole house with ZWave.  I have about 5 items on it now, I'd like to replace most outlets and light switches with ZWave modules.  I just don't know if they are all compatible, or if some people know of any with issues.  Should I just buy a bunch and presume they'll all work?  I am using a Micasaverde stick to control things now and it seems to be fine.

I guess I'd like to know of any non-working ZWave devices.

Users / HDhomerun - how the heck do I use it?
« on: July 21, 2009, 04:44:07 am »
Firstly, I cannot even watch this with VLC in Windows, I tried just streaming it in VLC with the IP of the HDhomerun but that doesn't seem to work.  It just says that it cannot connect to udp@hdhr_ip:1234.  The Windows-based configure program does seem to work though and does find channels.

I plugged it into my LMCE network, and it seemed to prompt for some things but didn't seem to work.  I don't really care about schedule info but I did sign up for a schedulesdirect account, but never paid for it so it doesn't do anything of course.

I manually added the HDhomerun into LMCE, and configured schedules direct anyway (even though it doesn't work), but MythTV doesn't seem to see anything, it says that all inputs are being used.

I cannot scan for channels in LMCE, I can't use the mouse to click on the dropdowns, and nothing is shown (I presume it doesnt detect something).  Any ideas?

Users / 2 of 5 cameras work? Only seems to show 4
« on: July 11, 2009, 02:09:11 am »
So I have 5 IP cameras, and for some reason LMCE only shows them as "Quad View" and only camera 2 and 4 show up.  I can't even select them from the menu.  If I remove/add them back in a different order, then 2 other cameras show up instead in spots 2 and 4.  I can browse to them manually and they work, but why LMCE puts only one "quad cam" item in my security list I don't know.  Searching the forum didn't yield anything useful, I wasn't able to find anything on the wiki either.  Anyone seen this before?

Users / Moved data, now icons gone on folders?
« on: May 02, 2009, 01:59:14 am »
So I had to rebuild my sdb1 drive, and now folder pictures are gone.  Most individual pictures come up on avi files though.  The .id3 files are still there, and the pictures must still be in the database, but it somehow lost the link between the two.  The drive used to be identified as something like "Raidcardname-sdb1(41)-disk" and now its "Raidcardname-sdb1(99)-disk", the only difference is the number.  Any way to fix this or do I have to link new pictures in again?  Searching the forum doesn't find quite what I am looking for.

Users / Power off MD at midnight? (timed events issue)
« on: April 30, 2009, 05:00:00 pm »
I'd like to have all media directors shut off at midnight if they are still powered on (except the core of course).  I got lights to shut off but for some reason the MD's don't shut down with the timed event.  I can power them off from an orbiter just fine.  Any thoughts?

Users / Issue with playing mkv files?
« on: March 27, 2009, 03:51:48 pm »
I have a bunch of mkv files that LMCE won't play at all (just dumps back to the main screen).  I know it will play mkv files in general, because I have another movie that it plays, but won't read the subtitles on that one (known bug).  Any ideas?  Could it be a codec or something?

Users / "quiet" audio?
« on: March 03, 2009, 08:48:37 pm »
This is on the MD on my core.  I have it hooked up to a receiver and speakers.  I have to crank the sound way up on some avi files, much higher than I did before.  I have turned the volume all the way up in KDE, but it isn't loud enough.  Any ideas what I am missing?
