Users / Re: VDR Problem

Thanks a lot!

Changing back to port 2001 did it.

I then had some problems with the other mds (black screen).
After viewing the config and not having any clue what was wrong i finally saw that i don`t have an init file for vdr on the mds.
Now i am using the one from the core.
hmm, strange. maybe i messed somethings or a lot of things up by changing from mythtv to vdr or did some other stupid things ...
I hope this way is okay.

So thanks again and

solved :)

hmm, i have both packages installed.

pluto-vdr Installiert:
pluto-vdr-plugin Installiert:

on the md there is just pluto-vdr installed.

I reinstalled pluto-vdr-plugin cause it was not properly installed, deleted the nova-td devices and rebooted...
still nothing.

here is my /etc/default/vdr config:
Code: [Select]
# Change to 1 to enable vdr's init-script

# Change this to 1 if you want vdr to be able to shutdown the
# computer

# Options that will be passed to vdr's commandline
# for example: OPTIONS="-w 15"
OPTIONS="-w 60"

I think i messed a little bit with the SVDRP_PORT because vdradmin wouldn`t connect.
Is it okay?

I am trying to get vdr working on my 12.04 installation.

I switched from mythtv to vdr via the setup wizard.
Whenever i choose TV on any weborbiter the screen(saver) just freezes, but there is no tv.

I can see the remotecontrol on the weborbiter.
I got the streamdev-plugin and vdradmin working.
I even can watch TV when I call vdr-sxfe on the commandline.

My TV-usb-dongle is:

Code: [Select]
15a4:9016 Afatech Technologies, Inc. AF9015 DVB-T USB2.0 stick
I downloaded the firmware and it seems that it is working.
But the dongle  isn`t recognized as a device in linuxmce.

The other dvb-t dongle i tried was a WinTV-Nova-TD dual tuner. But i had problems with i2c read/write errors and it got added multiple times as a device in linuxmce.
(Didn`t delete them until now but i removed the dongle from the hybrid.)

I realized that the lmcevdr package is not installed. And if i try, i get this error message:

Code: [Select]
lmcevdr lässt sich nicht installieren:
Authentifizierungswarnung überstimmt.
dpkg: Fehler beim Bearbeiten von /var/cache/apt/archives/lmcevdr_1.1-10_all.deb (--unpack):

Do i need this package?

Does anybody know where to go from here?
Would be grateful for any hint!

As said before:
Great project! Great work!

Users / Re: apt-get upgrade problem
« on: October 18, 2014, 05:26:22 pm »
i am afraid You are right. But i am really not that deep into ubuntu to even guess.
hopefully i didn`t post a "format c:"  :o if, then i am really sorry!
the update worked for me and i am not experiencing any troubles (until now).
Code: [Select]
dpkg-divert --package dash --divert /bin/sh.distrib --add /bin/shthis means that everything that wants to install /bin/sh is redirected to /bin/sh.distrib? The only exception is the package dash?
At my computer /bin/sh is still linked to bash and /bin/sh.distrib is also a link to bash.
I checked if i have substituted dash with bash back then, but as my bash history tells me, it doesn`t seem so.
i just tried to remove the diversion and i got the error again when trying to update.
with the diversion everything is or seems to be fine....
what do You think? Or anybody else, who can bring some enlightment?

i don`t know if You still have this problem, but I have run into the same today, wanting to update bash.
I found this and it seems that everything is okay now:

Really Great News!!!

Thank You for developping and all the work!
Can't wait to try it and  replace the noisy zotac zbox with it.

But first i have to get a newer raspberry and switch to use the 12.04 installation.

Users / Re: Silence or Change Ringtone on MDs?
« on: May 22, 2014, 04:20:38 pm »
okay, just wrote my first wiki article ever, yeahhhhei.
a shame, i know, but it is really not as complicated as i thought.
if anybody can improve it or finds mistakes, be my guest. :)
thanks for the suggestion, i think i just tasted blood....

« on: May 22, 2014, 01:47:57 pm »
sorry for waking up the dead.

maybe there is a better way, because this change is for all mds?

wanting to change the ringtone to a more smooth one, i changed the template


I am now using this ringtone:

there are several others in the same directory. hard to choose. :)

sorry again, should i start a new thread next time?
I think even if the most people here know this already, it could have saved me a bit of time, so i posted a reply....

Users / Re: Smoke detector Everspring SF-812 detection
« on: January 26, 2014, 02:55:11 pm »
So i am back.

Installing 12.04 (snapshot: LMCE-1204-20140121095528629.iso) was "smoother" than i thought.
a few obstacles that occured:

bevor the first reboot it seemed to hang at 90%. i switched to a text conole and it magically resumed. maybe it was just superstition and it would have gone further anyway ....

the core/hybrid needed direct access to the internet as it was mentioned here somewhere in the forum. otherwise it got stuck in a reboot-loop due to not detecting the network.
after the installation i can now put a router between core and the internet and network is fine.

my tv-usb-card win-tv-nova is recognized and added several times like it is in 10.04.


first my aeon labs z-stick was not detected. today i have put another usb-stick into the core (tricklestar 300zw-eu). that wasn`t recognized either but after switching back, the aeon stick got detected and added.
i cannot control any lights.
They show up in the web-administration-page but turning on/off has no effect.
the smoke detector is still not recognized correctly (generic tuner).

The new grub recognized my 10.04 installation. so after changing the default grub entry, i now have a nice dual boot.
one stable sysem and one to fiddle arround.
Video and audio is doing fine.
Again thanks!
I wouldn`t have thougt that 12.04 has come that long way already.
The smoke detector is not so important. it is just a nice thing to have that linked to the "matrix".  :)

the perfect reason for me to try 12.04 finally.  ;)
will try to install it (dual boot?) and report back!

i recently got this smoke detector.
It is still detected as Generic Tuner #75 like it is said in this ticket:

I am on 10.04 and did an apt-get update and upgrade today.
also tried to ex- and include the detector again but without any luck of correct detection.

I have now added it manually as child device of ZWave Embedded Security Interf and changed the port/channel number to the port channel number of the generic tuner. (Don`t know if this has the slightest chance to work, but there was hope and not much knowledge. :) )

What can i do now? Iwill be thankfull for any hint.

For the future:
Should i just reopen the ticket or is it okay to ask in this forum.
Really unsure about it and what version  had been fixed.
milestone 12.04 means it is fixed in 12.04 only?

thanks for this fine programm

Yo thanks alot!
looks so much nicer with all that artwork and it`s really amazing, to have all these informations.
i am tagging it manually right now. its really worth it.
A friend told me always, that xbmc i doing the tagging thing automatically.
Hahaa, in Your face linuxmce is doing it even better!   :)
 Or maybe will do it again in the future!

I read about autotagging in some threads here. Whooow what a great feature! i didn`t realised that untill now.
unfortunately it is not working for me.
The "linuxmceTag" is allready fully integrated into linuxmce right now? I dont`t have to download anything as in the wiki about metadata handling?
This is something from the log:
