   So I noticed that there is a #LinuxMCE channel on and I have been lurking there for a few days. For the most part it is pretty dead, but I have been answering the few questions that come my way. As I am still relatively new to the project my knowledge is limited but if anyone would like some live support for most installation related issues I am more than willing to try to help you out. I am generally online from 6:30AM-3:30PM EDT and sometimes more.

   If anyone would like to help out please stop by. Also if someone on this forum is the mod of the channel, please come in an hang out or deligate operator status to someone so that the channel can at least appear to be maintained.

Thank You

Ok, so i've found a reliable place that may be willing to give us a larger SVN repository but they want to know the total size of the source base that will be hosted there. I really cant seem to find any place to get the current source so if someone (paul?) could send me a message with that info I'll see what I can do.


Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Better Media Organization / Browser

I agree, the media browser needs some help when it comes to having tons of TV episodes in your collection. Sorting by Filename is really the only way that it becomes usable. Is there any way for me to make sort by filename the default behavior?

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: MAME

    Definitely an excellent feature. I would like to see something like MythGame built into the system where you can run various console emulators (MAME, zsnes, etc.). This was such an awesome feature, when my friends would come over and see some old school Super Mario Brothers on the screen they were really impressed. Would be nice to have.
    As it stands ive been tinkering with the "Add computing Application" function but this is not ideal because it doesn't flow nicely in the interface. Would it be terribly difficult to add a new section under "Media" for games and have the same browser used for movies be used for games?

Installation issues / Re: Display issue after install

If the output is fine on a monitor I would suspect the problem is your TV does not support the mode the graphics card is sending it. Check to see if you can use one of the modelines for a similar TV. There is a pretty good list with lots of things to try  at the MythTV modeline database


   That hardware is just not powerful enough to do the heavy lifting required by the UI2 interfaces. You will need to purchase a more capable graphics card (Nvidia 6xxx or 7xxx are all that are officially supported for UI2) if you want the UI2 interface. However the UI1 interface is fully functional, just not as pretty :)

Installation issues / Re: Orbiter failed to setup the transparency

    What type of video card do you have in the Media Director? When you run 'glxinfo' in a console in KDE what is the output?

     I am new to the project, but have been around plenty of FOSS projects in the past, and while I am no developer I would like to help. I am a systems engineer and have worked with some larger web hosting companies in my time so I would like to see if there is anything I can do to provide this project a nice, permanent home.
    I was wondering if anyone knew what kind of resources this project would need in terms of bandwidth and storage space so that I can look for a solution. It had been mentioned that a true build environment was desired, and the best way to do that would be having a dedicated server somewhere with Xen or OpenVZ and give the devs each a virtual environment. That type of thing isnt free, and it may be more of a long term goal, but its good to have solid plans for growth.
    I would also like to know if there is an IRC channel for the developers yet. If not I would be happy to set that up for and lurk there to keep it open. The early momentum this project has is very encouraging, but it needs to be kept going, and the best way I know for a project like this to do that is to get a solid community built around it (as has been stressed previously in this thread). I am finally getting to the point where I feel more comfortable with the LinuxMCE systems that I have set up so I will also try to do my part by fielding support requests that I can and maybe trying to fix up the wiki here and there.
