Users / Setup Wizard Av devices
« on: May 06, 2012, 08:23:30 pm »
While going through the Setup wizard, I browsed through the A/V devices  listed.
Now I noticed that some devices are listed in white and others in red. Any particular reason for this?
Samsung TV as an example;
LN-Txx6xF is listed in red
HP-S5053 is listed in white.

Users / Prevent other users to delete files
« on: January 08, 2012, 08:16:15 am »
Hi Guys,

Is there a way to prevent users to delete files using an orbiter?
I.e when chosing a movie to watch, there are options :
Play, Move, Delete, Close.

I dont want other users to be able to delete or move files.

PS. My 2 step boys (5 & 8) accidently deleted some movies...... Wife not happy....  :(


Installation issues / [Solved] 1004 install unmet dependencies
« on: December 29, 2011, 12:02:46 pm »
Hi All,

Im trying to install 1004, but Im doing something wrong. Some items have unmet dependencies. Even when trying to install manually.
Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1024512:/var/log# apt-get install pluto-avwizard
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
  pluto-avwizard: Depends: pluto-xine-player (>= but it is not going to be installed
                  Depends: pluto-xine-player (< but it is not going to be installed
                  PreDepends: libxine2 (>= 1.1.90) but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
There are several other packages too.
I attached the Setup log to.

Any ideas?

Users / Mame Games
« on: January 08, 2011, 06:39:15 pm »
Hi All,

Where can I get mame games for my core?


Edit : Nevermind..... I read the wiki after posting this question. Sorry

Hi All,

I havent done an update for a while now, 4months. So I thought it was time to do one. so I did an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade.Dowloaded about 490mb of updates. I rebooted after update and now my core is in a loop. It keeps on rebooting.
Just after Stopping NTP server there is a message ERROR 2002 cannot connect to local mysql server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock and then it reboots.

Anyone had this before?

Users / Clipsal interface on LinuxMCE
« on: October 22, 2010, 08:34:56 am »
Hi guys,

Im based in South Africa, and alot of the equipment is not locally available. So I cannot really expand my setup.
Currently I have X10 running, but to my suprise the insurance company is giving me a hard time. Its not SABS aproved. And I noticed that if I switch the lights of at the wall switch, WebAdmin indicates that the status of the light is still on.

So I started looking at Z-wave, but once again its not locally available.
On the other hand though, Clipsal products are available in SA. SABS aproved, but more exspensive. I dont mind spending the extra bucks, but I dont wanna get it and then I hit a brick wall.

There is a Wiki though

So my questions are:
Is Clipsal compatible with LinuxMCE?
Was anyone able to get the Clipsal interface working?

I dont mind digging in and getting it working if it is posible....


Users / New UI1 Orbiter skin
« on: September 07, 2010, 11:37:11 am »
Hi All,

Im creating a new UI1 Orbiter skin. I got a few pointers from the Devs, but I want to hear what the users would like to have in a Orbiter skin.
My way of contributing back to the project.  ;D
I'm learning as I go along with the Orbiter skin design. The first time I opened HA Designer I thought WTF!? What do I do and Where?!
But then I stumbled across TSchak909's screencasts that explained alot about how HA Designer works.

The screencasts;

How to install HA designer;

When Im done with this Orbiter skin, I will make it available to all.
Any advice, pointers and suggestions welcome, however the end result might not include some of the suggestions.

I've attached some screenshots for thus far. I do this in my part time in the evenings, so it might be another few weeks from completion.


Installation issues / Core/Hybrid delayed movie start
« on: August 30, 2010, 09:01:41 pm »
Hi All,

If I start a movie thats stored on my core/hybrid, their is about a 45sec delay before the movie starts.
Example, I choose the movie to start, the tv connected to the core/hybrid goes black for about 45sec and then the movie starts.
But on my MD the movie starts to play immediately.
