Users / How to add new media types and formats?
« on: June 13, 2007, 08:50:47 pm »
Linuxmce is workin pretty good so far.  i got fglrx workin on an ati 9600xt.  UI1 works ok.  But how do i add new media formats to the database?  i got allot of tv shows in .rm (realmedia) format and i can't see them in an orbiter.  I downloaded realplayer just to have a player that can work...but how do i add them into the pluto media plug-in, so that i see them in the 'Video' filelist, and when i select one, it opens the proper player?  PLZ HELP!  THIS IS MY LAST BUG!  THEN IT"S PERFECT!  for now...

1.) Perfect Install Beta2..shared desktop/media center, static IP, Kubuntu Fiesty
2.) Perfect setup, everything works, UI1 tho sux only got a radeon 9600xt to use right now.
3.) ATI remote wonder works in kubuntu b4 i ever install Linuxmce, As a mouse w/ volume control, no playback controls.  in linuxmce, i configure default infrared interface and ati remote wonder from the remote list, and nothin.  still works like a do i kill the kubuntu driver for this x10 receiver so that pluto can load it's driver and work right?
4.) apparently, the driver or dvb install script for the ATI HDTV Wonder is broken with kernel 2.6.20 to 2.6.3..just a tip for anybody else that has one and has to jump through hoops to get the OTA digital to won't for now...but it says that it works with kernels higher than once again, no mythtv for me... :'(  unless there is a kernel update for kubuntu that i'm missing...???
5.) don't mount any hard discs that you want to use in linuxmce in kubuntu desktop.  i use automatix to install this handy script that automounts all NTFS drives...if i use it, the drives are no longer accessible in linuxmce...maybe it's a permissions thing..
6.) otherwise, this thing is workin pretty good...especially with all ATI video hardware in it...i need more ram...512MB doesn't do it justice...and i need an nvidia card for agp

Installation issues / Absolutely Pathetic!

Listen...i understand...this is a remake of a pluto distro for ubuntu with shiny bells and whistles on it... It doesn't won't find all my media on an internal hard drive...myth tv is a myth....setup is archaic and very non intuitive...nothin works right...and i can't get pluto ati drivers to install because i fail a dependancy for pluto kernal update module! Maybe i try the actual pluto kick start cd...but then i'm no longer using ubuntu..i'm then onto debian...SHORT ANSWER!  This thing sux!  with a capital SUX!!  and it's got way too many modules to sit there and try to debug and figure out what is wrong...that's not my's the linuxmce guys know..the guy from the video!   So post replies to this...i just wanna see some opinions...this can't be a 1.0 release..i think they meant 0.1...

Installation issues / You Gotta Be kidding me!!

so my friend shows me this video of linux MCE...and i'm blown away by the possibilities...REREAD!!  THE POSSIBILTIES!!  so i install...on an athlon 64...regular i386 install...i get through it...and i have winfast tv 2000xp cards and an ati hdtv wonder w/ remote wonder plus...and an ati 9600xt....the interface works...router works....i'm tryin to configure through another laptop on the network...all that tv tuners remote wonder plus...nothin...i was under the impression that all this hardware would just work out of the box, as long as it works with linux....the tuners..ok...maybe they won't work...but i can't even get the remote wonder plus to work and i see and ati remote wonder plugin in the config!  needless to say...this thing just ain't ready's got all the bells and whistles, but it should come with an education and degree in rocket science, cause yer gonna need it if you want to install this system, let alone configure it..i'm no mac addict, but it does make you understand why apple wrote their own gui config panels for everything in OSX, despite it being a FreeBSD maybe someone can help me to understand my new toy?..
