My orbiter won't activate either. I just get a blank screen with the Linux MCE Launch Mananger on it.
The last few messages in the window are:
date... Generated skin successfully
date... Starting device 20 OnScreen Orbiter
date... Timeout waiting for device registration
date... Activating Orbiter...
Nothing happens after that. I've updated to the latest Nvidia drivers. I'm using a GeForce 6600. I've tried both UI2 with and without alpha and get the same thing. The only difference was that with alpha the background was gray. Any ideas out there?
I'm using the lastest Beta 4 (i386).
We have never tested an nVidia 660 card so I cant help other than to say that it sounds like it might not be configured correctly by the AVwizard. We have tested nVidia 6200, 7300, 6100, 6150, 7050 and all work reliably. Try one of these cards/onboard chips if you want a simple fix (the 6200tc can be had here in the UK for around £20 so its affordable).
All the best
Thanks Andrew. I ordered a nVidia 6200 AGP card and reinstalled. I was able to get the 720P display to work nicely, but I still get the same gray screen with "OpenGL" flashing in a title bar intermittently. This is pretty frustrating! Also, neither of my tuners are recognized during installation from what I can tell. Anybody have any suggestions? Could it be my motherboard is a bit too old?
My PC is a Shuttle AK12A
768meg memory (If I remember correctly)
Nvidia 6200 AGP card with 512meg (My motherboard bios setting is at 4xAGP and 256 meg max)
