Users / Re: TV keeps crashing!
« on: November 05, 2007, 04:38:24 pm »
I think it seems that people are just resigned to the fact that it will be fixed in the future updates. However nobody as far as I am aware has confirmed that it even will be fixed so I would like to try and find a fix for it for myself.

I would be very willing to help mine also works in KDE fine just not in LinuxMCE.

If you want any help with the trying to fix this then please email me or msg me. I hang around too in the IRC room so i maybe there my name in IRC is matt1982.

Hopefully maybe together we could come up with a fix instead of waiting a month or more.

Did you get this going at any point?

I would be interested in doing this too but not sure if its going to be more trouble than its worth.

How hard was it for people to get it working from this method?



Developers / Can I fix the TV Crashing problem?
« on: November 01, 2007, 01:17:23 pm »
Hi there peeps.

I am one of the people who gets the TV to crash when trying to play it through LinuxMCE. It works fine when run through KDE I can watch TV all day long if I wanted but through LinuxMCE it only gets maybe a minute or two at the most.

My question is this:

Would it be possible for me to try and locate the problem and maybe fix it? Im no computer idiot but im no rocket scientist either. I do write the occasional piece of software every now and again in my line of work.

If someone could give me a quick guide as the where the error logs etc are stored I would be most grateful as I really love this piece of software it is truely a wonderful piece of kit and with later releases I can see it becoming very popular indeed. I just want to try and track the error down and maybe see if there is any reason as to why it happens. It just seems like other people have left it for the moment and not got it to work. I dont know if anyone successfully even watches DVB-T television.

I run a Hauppauge Nova-T tuner card on a P4 3.0ghz with 1gig of ram and a GeforceFX 5200 with 128mb of ram.

Im open to all ideas and would love to help any of the people who work on the project in aiding them to fix this problem.

Kind regards and look forward to hearing from you

You could unclip the PC speaker from the motherboard as a last resort.

I dont have one on my system.

Just a thought for you to consider.

Yeah most definitely,

I would really like to see if anyone has actually got a DVB-T card working correctly in LinuxMCE.

I posted mine as not currently working on the wiki but I dont think that many people even look at that. It seems a bit all over the shop on the Wiki so it may be putting people off on how to find out what hardware is working etc. If anyone needs a hand making the Hardware Compatability Page any better I would love to help.

Keep up the good work everyone

Just wondering if anything is happening with regard to this. I will willingly contribute to help sort this problem out. I feel that it is a big problem that currently doesn't seem to be getting addressed by the LinuxMCE community.

Could anyone advise where I start debugging this problem such as log files etc.

Any starter advice would be greatly received.

If not can anyone recommned a DVB-T card that doesn't crash when watching Live TV on the core?

Just thought I would add that I am also experiencing this problem.

I have a Hauppauge Nova-T single tuner card with the Connexant CX88 firmware on it.

Has a solution been found to this yet? I will gladly help with any information that I can. The recording still works when it crashes like other people have reported. I am running it on the medium graphics settigns.

I have the following system:

CPU: P4 3.0ghz
Ram: 1gig
GFX: Nvidia GeforceFX 5200

Just wondering if there is an update to this problem. Please msg me or email me if you want to know more details I will gladly supply to the best of my know how.

Keep up the great work


Installation issues / Installing via the 2 CDs
« on: October 19, 2007, 10:54:40 pm »
Im a little lost im following the tutorial on how to install from the 2 cd method.

I can only find links to the first CD with the packages there is no link to the other CD is it called the cache? I would really like to do it over HTTP as its easier for me.

There is also a file i see called Linux MCE 1.0 should I really be downloading this?

Any ideas greatly received.

Thought I would save myself some time as I have Kubuntu installed but seems i may be mistaken and should just gone for the DVD

Cheers in advance


Users / Connecting to a TV
« on: May 20, 2007, 01:48:40 pm »
Hi im just trying to connect my media centre to a TV through the S-video connection.

The bios loads up fine and so does the Ubuntu loading display however when it gets off that the resolution/refresh rate seems out of range or something as it is flickering quite a bit and is unreadable.

I have had a go at trying different ones out but to no success. :(

I have also switched the jumper on my ati card from pal to ntsc. The card is a Ati 9550 256mb.

The media centre worked fine through the monitor but no luck through the TV.

Any ideas guys, ive searched the forums but to no luck:(

Thanks in advance.


Users / Which TV Card?
« on: May 07, 2007, 01:37:17 pm »
Hi Im loving using LinuxMCE its great.

I would like to know now which TV card to get, I would like one that receives DVB-T (UK Freeview i think). Im looking at the Hauppage Series as they seem pretty well supported. Any ideas?

I have a usb freecom one lying around but im not sure if this would work I cant see any success anywhere.

I would like to know if i will need to re-format the computer and re-install everything to get it working or can it be added after. Im hoping so but im not sure how to go about it on my system which I have been using for a couple of weeks and loving.

Thanks in advance.

Ok I tried running the ripping command as root.

It then displayed the usage options for the disk. Do I have to specify what seems like many many options to get the disk ripped is there a simpler way to test see if the disk can copy?

I dont really understand how DVD ripping works yet a normal audio cd wont :(

Ahh I will try running it as root then later when I get home.

I will report back my findings.

Ok it will copy a DVD to the HD fine with no problems at all. I was amazed at how easy it was to get ripped and the speed was excellent.

Sadly though My CD Ripping will not work. Im not sure if this is anything to do with it but I may have selected MP3 in the setup and not MP3, will that make any difference?

Cheers in advance
