Installation issues / Re: DVD install with NVDIA 880GTS 320MB Card
« on: May 01, 2008, 04:16:29 pm »
I had some similar issues with am 8400GS it's not a complete howto, but it might be helpful. Anyway, these are the steps I used to get my system working,...

Open a terminal by pressing ctrl+alt+f2
Log in with linuxmce/linuxmce
Go to runlevel 1: sudo telinit 1
Run the AVWizard manually: sudo /usr/pluto/bin/
AVWizard fails
Reboot: sudo reboot

Log into the terminal again
Install nvidia drivers with envy
sudo dpkg -i envy...
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -f

Once again reboot and go to the terminal
Stop X: sudo /usr/pluto/bin/
Run AVWizard manually as described

Another post implies that the ftp server is down. You would have to download the install/upgrade dvd (i think), or wait

Installation issues / Re: HAUPPAUGE WIN TV PVR150 MCE

I'm not shure wether there exists different versions og 150MCE, but the link you refere to does definetly not work for mine. Mine card seemes to be equipped with a i2c based receiver. This means that you should use the lirc_i2c module, not the lirc_mceusb2 module. I used the installed lirc version, and was able to get a response by removing the lirc_mceusb2 module and adding the lirc_i2c module. Then suddenly nothing worked, and I gave up and bought a windows mce remote instead,...

So my suggestion would be to try the lirc_i2c module
You should se something when you "cat /dev/lirc0", but you would need to stop lircd first
Use irw to verify decoding of your remote.

Well, I ended up with a reinstallation. Everythings works fine now, and I have learnt a thing or two. Hopefully I won't need to do it too often,...

I'm sorry about not being specific enough.

I installed 0710 from the installation DVD.
The projector is connected to the hybrid/core.

You suggest to reinstall from the DVD, and keep the /home setup. As far as I can remember, the first thing the DVD does is to reformat the whole drive. How do I do a reinstallation without whiping the whole drive?

Also I'm a bit worried about this happening again. I'll prefer to find a solution to the problem rather than keeping having to reinstalling the system all the time,...

Installation issues / AVWizard video setup problem
« on: April 18, 2008, 06:39:20 pm »
I have bulit a system with a Nvidia video card connected to my projector through component cable. Everything was working fine with UI2. When I ran AVWizard once more to resize the display strange things started to happen. I have tried a lot of different things, and now I can not get the transparency to work. The projector runs in 420i instead of 720p, and when I run AVWizard and switch to component mode, I just get a garbled screen.

Is there some kind of way to revert the video settings to "factory default"? Some of the settings are obviously stored somewhere else than in xorg.conf and xorg.conf.pluto.avwizard, because whatever I change, the settings pops up again.

I have not been able to find any documentation on how the video settings for the system are stored, somany information on this would be greatly appreciated.
