Installation issues / Re: Problems with my Hauppauge hvr 1300 mce tv tuner.

It's a lot easier then you think, there is no real damage you can do and it doesn't have to be anything fancy either.  Just use the preview button a couple of times until you're satisfied with the results.

You can just follow this link: and start typing.  Add this to the top and Bob's your uncle:

[[Category: Hardware]]
[[Category: Video]]
[[Category: TV Cards]]

For some examples on markup you can see the "Editing help" link at the bottom.

Thanks for the information, I have installed mediawiki on my hybrid so that I can try and get a better understanding before posting on the LMCE.  I will create some pages and upload them when I am happy with the results.

I dont know anything about editing wiki pages and would hate to mess it up.

Is it possible to setup a wiki site on my hybrid so I can experiment first prior to making a mess on a public site ?

Mine is not down sampled but wont display at native 1360x768 resolution via hdmi. It does support resolutions such as 1280x768 but that leaves black borders at the sides as it does not stretch the picture.  Using resolutions such as 720p, 1080i, 1080p etc also leaves borders or causes fuzzy text on the KDE desktop but is fine for video playback or orbiter text.

I have found that VGA input gives me the best of both worlds, i.e. perfect monitor capability and excellent quality when viewing moves

When using the hdmi port you are restricted to certain resolutions which results in black boarders etc when using the kde desktop or really poor quality display compared to running the desktop in the native resolution of the LCD display.  By using the VGA output I can get 1:1 pixel mapping so the whole screen is used and it results in a perfect sharp desktop.

I am experiencing no problems with video playback using tv cards, DVD's and a large mix of avi files.  Currently running UI2 without alpha blending and everything looks great on the TV.

I have it connected to a 32" LCD TV and run it in native 1360x768 for a very sharp display.


What TV and what video card are you using I cant seem to get my Olevia 232 to display 1360x768
do you have a special modeline?

I am using a Toshiba LCD tv which supports a native resolution of 1360x768 over the vga input, you need to check your manual to see what options your own tv supports.  The following modeline gives me 1:1 pixel mapping resulting in an amazing sharp display

   Modeline   "1360x768" 85.5 1360 1424 1536 1792 768 771 777 795

If I use the hdmi input then I can not get 1:1 pixel mapping so have to run at a much lower resolution which is slightly fuzzy

I am using an Nvidia Geforce 5600 video card

Hi m8

If you have the directory /dev/dvb/adaptor0 present then the DVB frontend is running

Do you want to watch DVB-T tv channels or analog ?

If it is DVB-T such as freeview in the uk, when you add a new card under mythtv you need to select the card type as DVB DTV capture card.

Your ourput from dmesg shows that the card is identified correctly so the problem is that the dvb frontend drivers are not being loaded

Open a console screen and type the following

  sudo /sbin/modprobe cx88-dvb

This should register the the dvb card and create files in the following directory


You should then be able to see the card in mythtv settings

Using the same tuner here, but if I remember correctly the /etc/init.d/dvb script was not being run automatically at boot so the dvb drivers were not loaded.

check dmesg at a console and verify that the card is identified

If your card has been identified correctly then you need to check and see if the DVB frontend is loaded, again dmesg should show an entry for this, a quick way of checking if the frontend is loaded is to look for the following directory /dev/dvb/adaptor0  if it is present then LMCE has loaded the frontend drivers for a DVB card.

I use mine as my main pc now.

Same problem with mythtv frontend crashing when watching live TV within LMCE, using HVR-1300 DVB-T card. Top does not show any issues with CPU utilisation.

Had previously been running mythtv on plutohome without any problems.


Developers / Re: Stats
« on: October 02, 2007, 07:14:43 pm »
I have not responded to the poll yet, but as regards developers it is open to interpretation.  They could be a developer working on their own LMCE system, they could be a developer as a profession but not currently working on the LMCE platform, they could be a developer working on one of the other platforms listed, they could be a plutohome developer, or they could be a LMCE developer not listed on sourceforge or they could be telling porkies  ;D ;D

I guess the poll could regarding developer status could have been more specific  ;)

I have the same issue using a three button gyration mouse (predecesssor to the Go2.4 version).

It must be possible to remap the buttons by modifying either the source code or event handler any pointers (excuse the pun) would be useful

If you organise your media by directory folders then you can select sort by filename on the media screens this makes navigation much easier


Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Support for sasc-ng
« on: June 21, 2007, 09:50:52 pm »
Hi guys

I have been running sasc-ng with mythtv and pluto for many months, you do not need to patch mythtv unless you are watching certain DVB programmes in the US.

sasc-ng provided a virtual DVB adapter so applications such as mythtv require no modifications.  You just tell mythtv to use the virtual rather than the physical  adapter.

Obviously you will have to compile sasc-ng on LMCE and to do that you need the kernel sources

There is no need to add the files to the database, just resynchronize the media as you have described.  Depending upon the number of files it could take a couple of minutes before the become visible.
