The ups/controlled shutdown on power loss is a good idea, I'm just a bit confused as to the benefit of trying to shutdown other systems when you lose power on the core.
Rule #1 - Be Patient - Rule #2 - Don't ask when, if you don't contribute - Rule #3 - You have coding skills - LinuxMCE's small brother is available: http://www.agocontrol.com

quickly looking over jamu...it looks promising but I would need to investigate how updateMedia deals with changing names of files and whatnot. do we want to rename people's files?
<useless drivel removed>I would not go so far as to call it brilliant, but as a long term goal it's important. If I'm not mistaken, it's also in the plan.
Again, it is weightless to the intended reader. They need help, you don't help, then "suggest" they:
*rip out, rewrite, or otherwise get away from any proprietary code. LinuxMCE needs FOSS programmers, some FOSS programmers may shy away from a project built from and still limited by non-free licensing, even if it's just some areas.
Drop pluto. Brilliant. I mean... I just don't even know how to address that. You seem to basically want mythbuntu with a couple of the "features" of lmce.
Don't worry about me, my skin is plenty thick. I just hate to see other people driven away. This was not directed at Thom, BTW.
*stop chasing away potential users and developers. Rude belittling posts do nothing but hurt the project.
Not a criticism obviously... just a suggestion eh? I don't like the way Thom talks to me either... but until he says something that is INCORRECT in a condescending way... he is kind enough to waste his time explaining things to me. His frustrations are logical and blunt. I prefer people that way. It's honest... grow a thicker skin.
Agreed, but the prevailing attitude, which you have perpetuated here in this thread, is the opinions of users don't matter. Only those that contribute an arbitrary "enough" should be allowed to comment.
*listen to the users. If a question or complaint comes up often, there is a reason.
Implies they do not. My limited comprehension reading this board has led me to a very different conclusion. The board itself exists for that function.
Perhaps you should grow thicker skin. Suggesting improvements or pointing out deficiencies should not be taken as insults. Without your input this thread would have been far less negative.
I am not going to go line by line anymore. I see that you are naively unaware that the post is insulting. At this point I am fueling something negative here, bumping the post. I wish you luck... and more dimension.
It's not a question of her being able to, she can. LMCE adds an extra layer on top. LMCE -> MythTV (dumps you into live tv) -> back out to the MythTV menu (different look and feel from LMCE main menu). From there it's the same. That was just one random example, but clearly you are living in denial so you just be happy with yourself.l3mce - I'm not going to get into a pissing contest over how much easier one product is than another. I'm fine with LinuxMCE, the wife thinks other options are easier to use and look nicer. End of discussion. Clearly you have issues with reading comprehension as well, but thank you for taking the time to search through my older posts and quote one that supports what I am saying in this thread.
It is the same product. Scheduling functions the same way because it is the same interface. There is no discussion to be had. If your wife cannot, after a single explanation, "work it"... I do not see how that would change.
Reading comprehension owns you. Most everyone agrees LMCE would benefit form a face-lift. That doesn't mean eye-candy. I switched to MythTV because it's the option my wife likes better.
Your quoted post, while still whining that it isn't good enough, is in contrast to what you are saying now, and supported by your decision to move to the "eye candy" option you did not think LinuxMCE should go.
Don't confuse suggestions with criticism. The amount of contribution one makes has no bearing on the validity of a suggestion. Sure, it carries more weight if a main dev suggests something, but that doesn't in and of itself make it more valid.
What did you expect this thread to accomplish? That everyone would drop the current product and re-engineer it to suit you so you will come back? Seriously? If you want a feature, make it. If you want to criticize it, you might want to contribute first to lend your opinion weight. My opinion has no weight... that is why I bother talking to you about this. It is not your place, nor mine, to complain about what "I think it should do" or state the obvious as if it is a revelation. There is nothing of merit in your contradictory posts, and this thread serves no purpose but to offend... my reading comprehension not withstanding.
Yes, I have modified the post...
A good number of your points are valid, however, there is only so much the developers can do with limited time and resources. We need help,
You haven't been following any development discussions, so how could you possibly know how things are going?
I am a bit miffed at your tone of, "make it nice and perfect and MAYBE i'll come back." but I'm sure that was unintentional.
