This worked fine for me :-)

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried that, and the script seems to confirm that it has added the entries into the MySQL database. But, when I reboot and launch the orbiter, the albums are not displayed.
I found a workaround
1) Start KDE on the MD, open a web browser and download the correct driver from Nvidia
2) Log in to the Core with ssh (from any PC) and typed sudo -s press enter
3) Then ssh to the media director and typed sudo -s press enter
4) Type telinit 1 and press enter. The ssh link to the media director got lost....
5) On the MD press CTRL/ALT/F1 and type sudo -s press enter and it does not ask for a password.
6) Installations of the nvidia driver was easy, just write sh <drivername> and follow the intstructions.
After a reboot I selected the audio/video wizard on the MD gui, and it restarted to a black screen (AV Wizard), I pressed 1 once on the keyboard, waited and the Wizard was visible, now UI2 w/alpha blending works great Now I just have to get 1366x768@66hz working for my display....
I'm not sure what you mean by "auto-sense" what's in the media folder. LinuxMCE does know what kind of media it is. Actually, it may take a little while for the UpdateMedia script to flag everything in the database, but I know it does do this... Sometimes even when I'd rather it not...
Oki, I understand that the core should have the dhcp server running on it for discovery etc.
Would it be fair to ask if it has to be the default gateway in the network? If not, would the following be possible?
Internet -- dsl modem (10.0.0.1), nat, no dhcp server
|-- LinuxMCE (static 10.0.0.2), dhcp server stating default GW = 10.0.0.1
10.0.0.10-100 for diskless MDs
10.0.0.100-254 for other dhcp clients
|-- MDs booting from 10.0.0.2
|-- other machines dhcp-client
This could mean that if you boot a machine using dhcp-client it would get the dsl-modem as default IP, and the network traffic would not need to go through the LinuxMCE box.
In advance, thanks!
I see no reason why this shouldn't work, and it sounds a lot more sane then the other approach, which in the worst case simply cuts your available bandwith in half. Usually the outside line itself is a much bigger bottleneck though, but still.
I don't see any options in the web-admin to change these settings, so you might have to try and change "option routers" in "/etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf", and of course there is always a chance that LinuxMCE wil overwrite those settings sooner or later.
