in the "device" tab select the core, at the bottom there is a listing of eths and their IP (or if they are set to receive DHCP). Delete it from the list (the eth0:0) or change it around in sequence. That is in my experience the one place that rules them all when it comes to changing setup of nics. just remember to use the same names as you would see on the KDE desktop and you should be golden. the sequence does matter, but I can't remember wich i wich now. (I do believe though that I have mentioned this to you earlier?)

great site, thanks for the tip.

I am using UI2 on 800x600 on a projector and it's not the best either.
The teenager is set up with an MD currently running Windows and Mediaportal and the 'problems' are similar.
I hope the UI will be a bit more customizable in the future, but it will take some time.

Installation issues / Re: Installation hanging

also what I have found is that one should never use the 'shortcut' DVD to install on 'unproven' hardware.
Just a tip

You should be able to get the web admin up on a hybrid if you go to the KDE desktop.
I have been playing around a bit with the lan settings myself, and it's very logical.
Remember that the order of the nics in the 'list' is important as to internal and external NIC

The Adminsite is gone, as the external interface IP# no longer seems to have a webserver listening.
true, it should be blocked by the firewall. (in my experience)
Try switching off the firewall?

I expect that apache is now listening on the eth0:0 interface. I haven't tested that, because I don't want to believe that LMCE exposes the Adminsite to only its internal LAN segment, rather than to other devices on the external LAN segment with the hybrid. I hope someone can explain otherwise.
Well... believe
In my experience, and logic would also suggest this, the LMCE core was supposed to be the house router, there should be no reason for 'outsiders' to be able to connect to the admin site. But I do believe you can open up for this in the LMCE firewall settings. (I have not seen a need for this myself though)

Installation issues / Re: Linux MCE 704 DVD Post-Install goes POOF
« on: December 18, 2007, 12:47:47 pm »
try installing kubuntu 704 first, then the two LMCE CD's instead of using the DVD.
Much more stable on install as it doesn't assume things about your machine like the DVD does (simplified).

Not yet, and not with 710 either (if I understand correctly).
(It's just the same in media portal for windows on any CRT TV as well).
Basicly the resolution is just too bad (640x480 for NTSC) to be much good, even large CRT TVs have the same crappy resolution, a 19" computer CRT would be hard pressed to even display it.

Are you using UI1 or 2?

There should be no issues using for instance media portal (windows) as a front end with a LMCE backend/server. It works for me. Both systems see the same media file share. Still not LMCE though, but works for media playback.

As you can see in the picture below, the gPC mainboard is really small (Micro-ATX 225mm x 190mm), they put it in such a big case because people  relate size with capabilities when buying it in Wal-Mart
bigger isn't always better

if only:
The gPC would come in a smaller set top box
it would ship to Europe

Users / Re: help me figure out if linuxMCE is for me?

The first thing to know about LMCE is that it requires one dedicated server (the core of the system) that is powered up and running at all times (no dual boot machine). It needs a decent machine to perform adequately. Other than that you can try 'anything' as an MD, if it works for your use then great.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Amarok and DigiKam support

hopefully it will at some time be possible to 'link' directly to wanted apps from the UI, it may bring up the desktop, but it would seem (as with firefox allready) that it really is not necesarry to pull up the full KDE desktop (is that 'X'?) to use a single application (I don't know)?

it doesn't matter what file system your drive is if it's mounted on a NAS/networked PC and shared from there.
do a search on the forum as similar issues have been discussed before. Myself, I am waiting for 710 hoping it will have some fixes and bring LMCE up to date in driver department (then you can also mount an NTFS HDD directly on the core).

thanks alot.
Would the USB fan drivers be an issue for the 'plain' HD160 as well I wonder?
