Will this computer work as a MD?

I understand I can use it as a orbitter hanging on the wall using the web orbitter, or maybe the windows orbitter.

Any thoughts?

Yes I'm a noob.. :)

So if this is a stupid question.. well. bare over with me.

I have one Core/hybrid and two MD's running in my lab.

When I boot one of them I get like an orbiter window, just like the web orbiter.

On the other MD I get the regular LinuxMCE GUI.

Why is this?

Ok, so I get some basic things going here. I have a Core/Hybrid, two MD, got Web orbitter going.

I just connected my NAS, and it shows up on the md and I choose to make it public.

there are three directories that it finds, two for movies and one for MP3´s. But not any of them appears in on my MD´s. I tried removing the NAS from the deveice list and adding it again, no luck.

This could be related to another problem. I copied some mp3´s over to the public catalog on the Core, this shows up, but I can´t get any sound. On the setup I could hear the girl talking in the wizard.

This is just an easy lab setup with VGA connections to screen and regular pc speakers connected to the onboard soundcard

Anyone have some good tips?

Have anyone setup the Galaxy tab as an orbiter?

Anyone has a small tutorial?

Installation issues / Asrock 330 as a MD, PXE boot help
« on: March 14, 2011, 10:00:22 am »
I can't find any PXE boot options in my BIOS. And can only choose from booting from CDROM or HDD.

Is there any other way to install a MD than to use a netboot. Or is it possible to netboot this computer? Another nic?

I'm currently building my house and have a goal of controlling "every" aspect of my house from a LinuxMCE setup.

1. Temperature control
2. Z-wave for all the lights, the electricians are putting in the components as I write
3. Music in multiple rooms, with built inn speakers
4. Possible to stream different tv signal to different rooms
5. Security systems with surveillance cameras
6. pluss much more, what cool things can be done

My budget is good and I rather do this the right way. I'm putting Cat6 cables inn all the rooms, I have a central room to put my Core, this room will also have the cable/satelite input, all the Cat6 cables ends up here. I also make it possible to wire from the speakers to both this room and to central location around the house, places to put my MD's maybe?

I understand that this is going to take some time. I tried out a little bit this weekend, and yes.. things take time.

Would greatly appreciate all input on how to best solve the different things.

Installation issues / Install new server as a Core

Hi, I have been reading the tutorials for installing LinuxMCE.

The problem is that the pictures in the DVD install guide is not the same at the one I'm using. I'm trying to install LinuxMCE with the Kubuntu 8.04 distro. But I never get any choice making the machine a core only machine as it says in the tutorial.

Is there another way to do this?

I've been using linux for some time, but I'm still a newbie, so sorry if this question is really stupid :)
