Users / X100P
« on: December 18, 2013, 04:54:12 am »
Before I get start I just want to clarify why I'm using an X100P card instead of a SIP provider...

My cable company gave me a free phone line that I have no use for, so why not connect it to dcerouter.

OK, I'm trying to compile information on how to get my X100P card I purchased from last week.  I started a wiki page where I will documenting the process. I would greatly appreciate any help from the linuxmce gods. 

ATM, I have only installed the Dahdi package and ran dahdi_genconf.  I have noticed that lspci does say something is connected and dahdi_hardware seems to like the card, but thats as far as Ive gotten.


Developers / media tagging
« on: August 25, 2013, 05:26:38 pm »
Is it just me or is auto tag, get metadata, and deleting images attributes all broken?  Can seem to tag anything automatically "Found Overriding Media Sub Type::0"?

Users / X10 Light Switch (dimmable) #38
« on: August 11, 2013, 05:59:21 am »
Im using a CM15A Interface on my core.  I connected the usb cable and it was detected like a charm.  I then added an Light Switch (dimmable) #38, selected the room and set the port/channel number.  reloaded and regenerated orbiters

The light turns off great, but then does not turn back on.  I see the logs for on and off:

08      08/10/13 23:57:30.772           Received Message from 48 (Orbiter / Bedroom (Master)) to 160 (Light Switch (dimmable) / Bedroom (Master)), type 1 id 193 Command:Off, retry none, parameters: <0xaca52b70>
08      08/10/13 23:57:30.772             Parameter 76(Level): 0 <0xaca52b70>

08      08/10/13 23:57:33.634           Received Message from 48 (Orbiter / Bedroom (Master)) to 160 (Light Switch (dimmable) / Bedroom (Master)), type 1 id 184 Command:Set Level, retry none, parameters: <0xaca52b70>
08      08/10/13 23:57:33.634             Parameter 76(Level): 100 <0xaca52b70>

I have an X10 remote that I have used in the past to turn off and on the lights and oddly enough turning the light off via LMCE also makes the remove not work to turn it back on... I have to turn on the switch manually and then the remote works again...

Has anyone been through something like this?

Users / HDPVR to MDs
« on: August 04, 2013, 02:55:06 am »
 I'm trying to stream HD content from a HDPVR over a gigabit network from core to md using xineand the core is giving alot of this:

ffmpeg_video_dec: error decompressing framed   0%  3.0s  384kbps 0,     on
video_out: throwing away image with pts 11712475 because it's too old (diff : 380949).

then Xine on the core seems to eventually crashes yet if I view the content on the core there is (not the mds) theres no poblem this is 10.04 the core has 4gigs of ram and 3 core processos using kernel 2.6.38.  when the video runs on the md the sound is always like 2 - 3 behind; but the video and sound is pretty smooth.

Any Ideas on what I can do to fix this?

Users / 1004 xine at 100% cpu [SOLVED]
« on: July 28, 2013, 06:26:38 am »
I just bought an ION motherboard (Zotac IONITX-B-E) and xine hops to 100% cpu when playing hd content.  content that should be handled by vdpau.  This is a fresh installation, what could be wrong?

Users / USB UIRT 0038
« on: March 30, 2013, 04:42:26 pm »
i have a fresh install of 1004 final up till now Ive done everything through webadmin (except hulu) and everything has worked great even hdmi audio on m3n78-vm but im having a little problem with usbirt once the device is connected the hybrid adds it and also adds the mce remote.  Shouldnt those two device be under "the core/hybrid" in the device tree instead of under "CORE" either way my (even if I changed "controlled by" the remote is not working and it seems like USB URT 0038 doesnt start correctly on route reload.  Any comments or suggestions?

« on: December 29, 2012, 08:44:42 pm »
I have a M3N78-VM.  I used apt-get update and apt-get upgrade today and now I dont have audio (HDMI).  The command: aplay -D plughw:0,3 /usr/share/sounds/alsa/Front_Center.wav plays sound through the speakers, but no sound in xine and no sound in myth.  What are the correct steps to get it working? I already went through the avwizard again selecting hdmi audio and restarted various times.  This is on the CORE/Hybrid.


Users / [SOLVED] NIC not recognized - BIOSTAR G41D3C - kernel driver atl1c
« on: September 20, 2012, 03:36:44 am »
I have a Biostar G41D3C ( with a pci-x (VDPAU capable) hdmi out card and 2 gigs of ram.  I should world great as an MD, but apparently the NIC is not supported by the kernel or the drivers are not loaded by default.  I'm a little confused on the offical way to get this md working and possible supported OTB by linuxmce future release.  

Can some one post help me figure this out... maybe by posting here some official instructions so I can try them and then I''ll document them correctly in the wiki (It seems that the current documentation of this on the wiki doesnt work right)?


Users / No Orbiter on Core
« on: December 14, 2011, 09:56:19 pm »
I hardly ever use the core as an orbiter, but I had updated about a few weeks back and I noticed that after a reboot, a few days ago, the computer just goes write into KDE as if it was a kubuntu install.  I'm using 1004 and all mds are working fine.  Everything seems to be working great... but no MD on the core...


Any suggestions?

Users / [SOLVED] another hdmi audio issue?
« on: September 06, 2011, 05:15:11 am »

refers to: All of them should be unmuted. Press 'm' to unmute, and the right and left arrows to navigate. Then select 'HDA NVidia NVIDIA HDMI (ALSA)' as output for all items in 'Sound Prefrences' and select 'HDA NVidia (Alsa mixer)' as the mixer.

whats 'Sound Prefrences'?

heres the results of aplay -l

root@moon122:~# aplay -l

Users / All MDs are down
« on: August 17, 2011, 05:33:47 am »
I got home today from work and all three of my Media Directors are giving the same error messages at boot.

They get their initial address via dhcpand start loading their respective initrd.img

then it says "Loading, please wait..."

then we see all the nice ip info followed by: filename : /tftpboot/pxelinux.0

then immediately followed by "connect: Connection refused"

at the end it says:

mount: mounting /dev on /root/dev failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /sys on /root/sys failed: No such file or directory
mount: mounting /proc on /root/proc failed: No such file or directory
Target filesystem doesn't have /sbin/init.
No init found. Try passing init= bootrag


The core seems to be working fine... I've rebooted it and it boots fine.

Please help I've been running this system for about a year and its worked great.  I'm just beginning to really understand how this system works, but I just dont understand whats going on here...


Users / media keyboard

after I reinstalled a while back I noticed my media buttons on the keyboard don't work.  Is that still an issue?

Users / Probem with camera device from orbiters
« on: February 11, 2011, 02:29:17 pm »
I don't know if I missed something, but I reinstalled the core using the latest snapshot this weekend and worked fairly well (I will update the wiki and check the tickets as Saturday night).  I'm having a small issue I didn't have before and thate security camera setup... 

Motion records perfectly and has all the folders setup correct (had to fix the permissions inside /home/cameras/) but it is saving the latest shots, recordings, timelapse, etc.  These are analog cameras using a bluecherry capture card. 

So, everythings cool; but when I click on the device using the padorbiter or any on-screen orbiter (including webadmin).  I don't get a picture.  according to syslog motion seems to start up fine; I can even see a picture if I access "http://dcerouter:<motion created port>"

Is this this a known issue with the lastest snapshot or am I missing something...

Developers / motion wrapper update/patch
« on: October 08, 2010, 07:38:10 pm »
I have a few WinTV (150 and 1600) tuner cards that have variours inputs, so I purchased 3 analog surveillance cameras to connected to those extra ports and use them as security cameras.  Everything seemed to go well (creating motion_wrapper, adding generic analog cameras, correctly setting the port (s-video, or RCA)).  But then a hit a brick wall which is described here by a different user:

this is supposed to fix it:

Is anyone here familiar enough with motion_wrapper to help/instruct me on how to patch/update the "motion" part of "motion_wrapper".  I think an update to it would probably add some more devices to the ever expanding list of LinuxMCE compatible devices (am I correct in asuming analog video cameras cannot be added using a capture card without it being compatible with motion_wrapper??) and I have a nice bit of programming knowledge to I'm sure I could help a bit. I just need some pointers / advices / help from someone that KNOWS how this works.
