Well, I switched alpha blending off and it's back now. So, problem solved.

I have a problem here - I was messing with my xorg.conf and editing the resolution to try and get less blurry text on my menus and it worked! However, now my background (displaying pictures) is gone and when I play video I can only hear the sound so it seems that the video isn't overlaying correctly. I tried restoring a former xorg.conf to no avail which made no sense to me and also I tried running the AV-wizard again.. What could I have changed?

Hi guys, I have a slight problem with my box - When I connect it to my TV the text is all blurry and really annoying to read. I tried playing with the resolution a bit and changing it from 640x480 to 800x600 makes the text bolder and thus easier to read, but still very fuzzy. Could it be a problem with refresh rates? I looked in my xorg and there's currently no vertrefresh settings or anything like that..

I want to know the exact same thing - Geexbox using nvtv fills my entire screen, but I cannot for the life of me get overscan in LMCE. Please post any findings!

An update on this problem: I kind of gave up, thinking that it was my old TV that was refusing to accept the S-video > SCART input,but recently I booted the machine using a GeexBox live CD and after pressing S (cycle output modes) twice, I got a nice fullscreen, fullcolor image.. So does anybody know how to replicate this setting in LMCE? Maybe I could copy the Xorg.conf?

I have a small piece of cable that's labeled S-video colorfix, because on another grap. card I got a black/white picture when I connected the S-vid to another television than the one I'm using now. Neither of the PALs work with or without this cable. In fact, with this cable, the PAL setting that gives me to most correct picture is black/white and without it, completely unwatchable.

Yeah, but I'm not completely sure it's the card that's the actual problem (more likely ancient TV and it's scart-only input) and then I think it's silly to spend that money on a new card that's really not going to see any heavy 3D action or anything like that..

Also, it's the principle of the thing, it must be fixable.. I suppose.. I just have no idea how.

Yeah, I rebooted, but there's really no difference at all. I tried putting in the physical size of the device too, but it  didn't make the picture any bigger, just made the fonts unreadable.

Maybe I should upload a picture of the problem..

Hm, I'm having a problem with the modelines - It's a handdowned TV, so I don't have the manual and it's not a very known manufacturer.. So I can't find the information to input into the modeline generators anywhere.  I guess there's not much left I can do. Maybe getting the newest Nvidia drivers might help even thought it's a Geforce 2?

No, the one I got was this one:

I'm not handy with code, so I probably won't be much of a help there..

darrenmason > It certainly does seem like we have the same problem (Or remote even? Bought mine from eBay China), but most of my media buttons actually do work, except volume up/down.. That reminds me of an interesting development: when watching DVDs, I can actually use volume up/down, but the screen interface that pops up is remotely different than the LMCE one. I suspect it's the DVD playback software's own (Xineplayer? VLC?) It's white with blue bars and numbers, but I digress.

I don't think I'm gonna work that hard on this as it's actually working fine now. Just not 100% flawless and logical, but just fine for what I need it to. There's a lot of unused buttons, but it doesn't bother me enough to actually look into a new solution as rafik24 suggest.

Or.. That depends on how hard building a receiver would be..

You need to add the volume up / volume down command in the db ( pluto_main RemoteMappings) as said earlier.


Even if the remote isn't recognized as a remote, but as a USB Keyboard? And also where is the db and do I just edit it like a text-file?

Thanks for the help!

Okay, so I found the keycodes the remote was sending through xev and then using xmodmap I mapped them to the corresponding keys on the keyboard.

This, however, leaves me with still something missing. On the keyboard, there seems to be no direct key to, for example, turn the volume up/down, so how do I map the volume up/down keys on the remote to actually turn the volume up and down and other such things?

Can you give more information?  Homebrew Reciever? remote control Model?
do you have a working copy of lircd.conf for this remote?

You are in the right place on the MD page. First select the IR Reciever and then select the remote.

If your Remote is not listed then your are going to need to create a new template for the new remote. 

Hi Wilson!

Well, it's a noname receiver that came with the remote.. None of them have any writing on them at all. I have no lircd.conf - It shows up as a USB Keyboard in /proc/bus/usb/devices.

But after I create a new template, it just drops me back to where the 'add remote' button is..

 The remote buttons are checked against the sql db (pluto_main ; RemoteMapping).

 It often happend that the remote buttons are slightly different than the once used in the sql table.

 However i would recommend to rename the buttons in the remote config rather that the db

 There is a thread on this topic where i have been helped by totallymaxed

 Hope this helps,



How would I go about doing that? I'm pretty confused about the admin site at this point.

I go to Wizard > Devices > Media Director and 'add remote' which prompts me to put manufacturer name and such, all of which is sorta void, because it's a noname remote and receiver. But anyhow, I add a manufacturer (noname) and a device(?) and then what? There's something about editing RemoteMapping in a SQL database? How would I do that? And also, don't I need to know what signals the button presses are sending?

I'm not asking for a step-by-step guide on how to do it(though I wouldn't complain..), but I'm just really at a loss here.. I just need to understand where to read USB Device keypresses and make them output keyboard commands or commands to the UI

But thanks for the help, Rafik24.. I tried looking back through your other threads, but I don't think I could find the one in question.. And what I did find confused me even more..
