I also tried this function and because I have a lot of files I let it work through the night. In the morning the sarching was still going on. I did the coverart of the files manually and finnished it in less then 3 hours. So I guess it doesn't work very well

maybe I gave to little information.
The lag is there always. first I thought it was because I played it from my NAS-drive (WDC Mybook World 500GB: don't buy this because it's a TERRIBLE product) but when I copied a file local the same happens. There is also no difference between the different formats, DVD, avi or a HD-file it's all laggy in the same way. Below you'll find a picture of my mediadirector settings. I played with the settings but there is no difference in the lag. I stays the same, not worse not better. I also tried to play the files with kaffeine in the KDE desktop, same result. A last maybe I should try to explain what I mean with lag. The sound and picture stay perfect synchronized but every 10 to 20 sec the video halts for a fraction of a second ands continues normally.

Seems like a lot of people have these problems.
Here's another thread about it.

I have the same issue. It is annoying, but I also suspect it contributes to the over all system lag that I am experiencing. In my case it is a windows share that continously "re-presents". This in combination with the problems I am having with my previous post "Media HDD" leads me to believe there are still issues to be worked out in the media detection scripts.

I also posted a question about video lag on my system. Reading the above I guess that could be origin for the lag. If only I knew what do do about it.

When I play a dvd or a avi file the move halts for a very small time and then continues. It happens 2 to 3 times a minute and it's really unpleasant watching a movie like this. Below you'll find my pc specs but I think they should be enough.


Intel Core 2 4300 @ 1,8GHz
Two Gigabit Nic's connected to Gigabit switches
Geforce 7600 GT 256MB

Anyone has the sme probs or know what to do please help


Users / Device already enabled popup keeps coming back
« on: September 01, 2007, 04:22:13 pm »
With the great helpof this forum I got my Samba shares running perfectly. The only thing that keeps bothering me is that I keep getting this popup windows in the left top of the corner saying: "Device already enabled name of my share" These popups are a bit annoying and I would like to disable them. Is this possible?

Installation issues / NAS drive probs
« on: August 31, 2007, 01:24:04 pm »
Hi Everyone,

After a lot of retries I. finally got LinuxMCE working with the new install cd's. So as you may guess I'm a newbie to Linuc(MCE). .I bought myself a WDC Mybook and connected it to the network. It was detectef bij LinuxMCE and asked me for a username and a pw. And there it went wrong, I entered the wrong pw. So now there is no media in my orbitter but there are 3 drives under the 'Manage Drives' button. when I click one of them I. get a new screen but I can do nothing there. I.s there an easy way of reconfiguring the drive? Can I delete it under LinuxMCE and redetect it? I also have 2 network cards, to which one should I connect the NAS drive? The LinuxMCE DHCP (192.168.80.*) or to the other one.

Thx a lot

I followed the steps zagnoni wrote earlier and as by wonder the installation of LinuxMCE completed without any problems, I thought. After setup was complete I needed to reboot to finalize the installation and that's when it went wrong. My GUI won't load because the XServer can't be loaded. I think this might have to do with the downgrade of the ackages. I didn't know which packages needed to be downgraded so I Installed all the packages on the 6.10 cd I could find. I'm a newbie and can't find a way to solve the problem. Anyone an idea?
