what kind of cd are you using? is it a cd-rw?

well, usually, the best video cards in linux are nvidia ones. it should work with ati too (there is official support for linux). a PCI tv tuner is also a very good idea (Hauppauge PVR250 i recommend). any bluetooth receiver should work also. the system that you showed is well suited for linuxmce.

Would that mean Pluto would run more efficient as it was build just for media and not as a desktop (I only want it as MCE)
from my experience with Pluto and Linuxmce, they are running the same, as long as you have recommended hardware (recommended by Pluto developers). Linuxmce is built especially for users who are using Ubuntu as desktop. if you want only a system for media and device controlling Pluto is very good.

version 1.1 probably will be a bugfix release. it will be released as soon as many bugs are solved. maybe in may we will have 1.1 version.

i'm not very sure what i'll be saying but...every button has an image associated. if you erase that image i think that you will not have anymore the corresponding button.

well, when you will encounter the same problem, please look in /var/log/pluto for xine player log (of course, what happened in the past is also recorded in xine log and you can look there to provide us with some interesting information). also, it will be very good to know if other users had same issue.

it would be interesting to see if the mouse works at its best in Ubuntu. mapping a mouse with more than 2 buttons can be done by adding some extra options in xorg.conf.pluto. the behaviour of the mouse in mce is given by how good it's recognized by Xorg.

from what i know (i don't have a linuxmce machine near me right now) the firewall rules are not blocking anything, so I don't see any reason to be worried. but, i don't understand what you are trying to do with port 139.

do you have a single machine with mce or you connected to core/hybrid other computers as media directories?

Users / Re: DVB-S Mythtv install over virgin LinuxMCE install
« on: April 14, 2007, 10:50:42 am »
there is a myth tv setup section in linuxmce. if you don't touch that i think that you will not erase the original setup. regarding the second question, you should be able to force loading of desired modules by adding them in /etc/modules.

do you say that you are connected to the internet through a router?

Pluto is a modified Debian (the base is Debian) with software made by Pluto developers for controlling media and other devices. Linuxmce is a software derived from Pluto (only software for media and the other devices) that stands on top of Ubuntu.
You say that that the project is going too far. Well, the people wants this kind of software for controlling everything.

even if the status file is there, copy status-old to status. if it is not working, make a new folder on your desktop, and copy the contents (with the exception of the partial folder) of /var/lib/apt/lists into that folder. then type apt-get update again and see what happens.
