Users / Lost in ATI HDMI land
« on: December 27, 2011, 09:17:31 pm »
Hello I am having some difficulties resetting up my core.  I originally installed it with a Nvida video card, but after using it for a year and reading more on the forums and web I realized I could use the ATI onboard card to get HDMI video and audio out.  I was able to correctly configure my system so kubuntu could get 1920x1080 (1080p) resolution and HDMI audio out.  Once I was comfortable that I had the video and audio I wanted I decided to use the AVWizard.  in the wizard I am not able to setup 1080p (only 1280x1024) nor was I able to get HDMI audio out.  to show off my new 70" sharp LED I need to run at full resolution (1080p).  Right now I do not have any audio and I am getting an error in kubuntu that says the audio open error no such file or directory ( issued command aplay -D plughw:1,0 Noise.wav [from the /usr/share/sounds/alsa dir]).  when I run aplay -l I get no sound cards found and when I run aplay -L I get nothing back (these both previously returned the card before AVWizard).  I currently get both the video card and audio card when I run lspci.

Here is my basic hardware setup:
1) MB:  Gigabyte GA-MA785GM-US2H
2) Processor:  AMD X2 3.0 GHz
3) Video: ATI 4XXX
4) Audio: ATI

Oh one more wierd thing I just noticed is that when in X aplay -l says nosound cards but when not in X I get my sound card to return (and audio to play just no sound out of speakers)

I have installed the latest Catalyst driver (v 11.12) from AMD's website (configured it for Ubuntu/intrepid) and installed ALSA 1.0.19 drivers

I would appreciate it if someone could provide me with some help and or guidance to help me resolve my issue.

Thank you,


Users / Web Orbiter 2.0 Problems
« on: September 06, 2010, 05:04:31 am »
Hello, I am a new user to LinuxMCE and just installed 810 on a core/hyrbid to try it out. 

I am having issues using the weborbiter in 810 (#23251).  I have configured the Orbiter as sugested in the wiki.  I am able to login to the orbiter and see the first screen, however when I click on something (like Video) I get a black screen.  I can use the back button to go back to the initial screen.  I have tested this on several different browsers (Firefox - on windows XP, Firefox - on Kubuntu 10.04, IE - on windows XP, Safari - on IPad) all with the same results.

I noticed in the log (/var/log/pluto/ I keep getting the following:

05   09/05/10 21:56:31.097      Received ANYNEWS? 10222, but device hasn't identified itself yet. <0xb1cdcb90>

I am not sure what is going on and would appreciate anyone that can point me in the right direction.

Thank you
