Users / Modifying Core Maintenance Internet Download times
« on: April 01, 2011, 05:44:32 am »
Due to me having un-metered internet access provided by my ISP between 6am and 8am in the morning, I am wanting to change the times that the core downloads the updates for the MD's and itself to this un-metered time.

Is there a solution already built into the core to achieve this, or will I have to edit the relevant times that the daily cron jobs run? (I have had a look on the wiki and forum but could only find information on the update process itself, not how to change it's activation time.)
If I do this manually, will the core put the config back on a reboot, or will it stay as I would like it?

On the same note, it would also be nice to change the time that it downloads the flicker images to the same window time as well. I'm not sure if this is a cron job, or something downloads when the process is active in showing images.

What other things does the core do on a timed basis that I can schedule during this time to reduce the internet use on my account?



Users / MythTV to LinuxMCE Migration
« on: June 10, 2010, 06:25:29 am »
Hi All

I'm in the planning stages of migrating from MythTV to LinuxMCE. I know that I will have to migrate my current file stores from my custom ones to the MCE defaults, and will have to update host names for the backend/core among other things. I'll try and keep a note of the changes I have made to create a Wiki page for others thinking about the migration.

One thing that I would like to know is, after I have migrated the backend functions from my current MythTV Backend to the MCE Core, can I connect my current Myth Frontend to the new core (once I have updated where it is to find the backend)? Or has there been to many MCE customizations for a standard MythTV Frontend to connect and work successfully?

It would be of advantage to the WAF to initially have a seamless migration (read "she has no idea it has happened") while I tune the backend and get the MD's operational.


Users / Nokia E63 Compatibility
« on: June 08, 2010, 01:45:15 am »
Hi All

I'm new to LinuxMCE, but have been running a Myth box for a number of years. However this is not the subject of this post.

I'm now in the market for a new Cellphone and thought that I would get something in preparation for planning on a LinuxMCE migration. Question I have, is the Nokia E63 (which runs Symbian OS 9.2) compatible with LinuxMCE? Or can someone suggest a similar phone at a similar price point that is compatible.

Have a good Day
