This means that you'll need an orbiter(user interface). If you have selected the hybrid installation(core with media player), a message should appear on the hybrid screen saying that a new md was detected and you can either add it or ignore it.
If you chose the core installation, you'll need to make a new orbiter on an xp machine that connects to the core. You can do that from the web admin, before you log in, you have something like "Download Orbiter, Utilities and other software". From that list select the orbiter for "Intel/AMD x86 (normal)".

The core/hybrid installation refers to the installation type of the first machine, not the md.

You have to do the Setup Wizard and configure all your devices that you want to use, then they will appear on the menu.
You should be able to do this form the OnscreenOrbiter of that MD.

You can choose between 3 user interfaces to control Linuxmce: UI1 (static images), UI2 (with masking) and UI2 (with alpha-blending). The last option runs better with nvidia 6200 or better. You should try the first two interfaces.

You can change the UI (and the resolution settings also) from the web admin page (which you can access by typing your core's IP in a browser). In the media directors section, scroll down and you will see a 'UI' drop-down.

Try to delete /etc/event.d/pluto file, then rename /etc/event.d/ into gdm
This should make Ubuntu boot first.

there are 2 ways that Linuxmce can control your tv: infrared ( ex usb uirt) or direct connection ( RS232). I don't think a blue tooth will work.

There are lots of posts regarding this issue.
Here is one of them:

you can manually add a new MD from the web admin page:
Step1: Enable network boot in BIOS of PC which is going to be Media Director. After that every time you turn on your computer it will try to boot from network.
Step2: go to web admin page, devices->media directory, Press the 'Add device' button.
Step3: In the new window under “Device Template” drop-down menu chose 'Generic PC as MD' and press the Pick device template' button. After that you will see a message about preparation a data for new device. It can take 2-4 minutes. When setup procedure of MD finished you'll see a message on all active Orbiters that new device is configured and ready to use.
Step4: The new MD will appear in the “Media Directors” page
Step5: Now it's time to prepare ISO for new diskless MD. To do that just press the button “Setup Diskless Media Directors” and wait till operation will finish (you'll see a log output to the web page).
Click OK on the “Finished setting up diskless Media Directors” dialog box and then follow the instructions:
“Please wait for the setup process to complete, then do a ‘quick reload router’, and then you can boot up your new diskless media director”
Step6: Turn on your MD.

You will see on the screen of the MD a message "We announced ourselves to the server. Use an orbiter to continue "
when you install LMCE, you can install as a core or as an hybrid:
If you choose the hybrid installation, you will get a On-Screen Orbiter on the hybrid. This way, when a new MD is recognized, on the orbiter you will get a message to confirm the installation for the new MD.
If you choose the core installation, you should use an Xp orbiter to continue with the installation of the new MD.

You can create an Xp orbiter from your xp machine.
Access http//:[linuxmce_machine_ip] and you will see a section 'Download Orbiter, Utilities and other software '
Download and install the orbiter for 'Intel/AMD x86 (normal) Windows 98/ME/XP ' on your xp laptop.
