OK, this seems like a pretty stupid question, but I can't find any documentation on the wiki for what keys do what :-[. I, err, I can't figure out how to get back to the menu from a DVD... There must be some docs somewhere, but I can't find them; can anyone link me to it please?  :-[

RESOLVED: It turns out my TV doesn't actually support 1920x1080 on the VGA port; I enabled the 1360x768 it actually takes as documented in Custom Display Resolutions, and it seems to be working fine so far.

So far, I've installed Kubuntu 10.04, downloaded and run the MCE installer script, and rebooted. Now I'm having issues with the AV wizard. When I select VGA 1080p 60Hz (which my TV is), the display appears too far to the right, slightly off the edge of the screen. I noticed in the AV wizard wiki page that 1080i/p has issues with some nVidia cards, but I'm not sure if that's my problem or not, since it's been crossed out, and I'm using an intel chipset anyway.

Does anyone better versed in this than me have an opinion re: Is this a general problem with 1080p, or is it something I can fix? I checked the forums but couldn't find any threads that look related. (I admittedly went off thread titles rather than opening every "Problemz plz hlp!!!" thread to see if it applied)

EDIT: I forgot to mention, I've set it to 720p which is working fine for now.

Hi, I'm trying to install LMCE, but when it reaches the graphical installer, the text is way too small to read. After looking around, it looks like I'm having the problem described here: Microscopic fonts in KDE, but I can't see how to apply the fix to my situation, as the filesystem hasn't yet been installed. Is there a way to force the display dpi before the installer runs?

EDIT: I forgot to mention what version I'm trying to install! It's 8.10. Is there anything else I should mention that I forgot?

Hi, I'm looking forward to setting up a Linux MCE system on a spare computer I have, but I'm a little confused about the description of the network layout on the Network Setup wiki page ( The diagram of an "existing home network", with router and switch being separate devices, linked by CAT cable, looks like an unusual setup to me. In my experience, router and switch (and WAP) are typically integrated into one unit (Netgear DG834G in my case), which would make the described setup impossible to implement. Is this a locational thing, with separate modems and switches being common in the US? This kind of thing happens fairly often in my experience, with different standards in different parts of the world, and I was wondering if anyone could shed some light on this please? (Advice on a solution would be greatly appreciated too, if possible)
