Installation issues / Re: setup
« on: October 04, 2007, 07:05:22 pm »
I will add more detailed information on the wiki, but until I get home...

Basically, you need to go into the Configuration->Devices section of the web admin site...and find your hard drive in the device list...it will be under the computer that they're attached to in the device list...

after deleting the device, wait a bit.. LinuxMCE will attempt to scan and re-add them automatically, and in the process, ask you the questions.

Users / Re: Can LMCE Send RS232 with the Security Screen ? One-Way is ok

When creating a new device template, you specify what commands and events that it can deal with. Those events map to GSD strings.

Once those commands and events are added to the device...you can then use the advanced wizard to send commands to the new device you've created.

Users / z-wave lag
« on: October 04, 2007, 03:55:59 am »
I am using a ZCU000 attached to a z-wave network of 4 devices... when I tell it to turn the lights off in the room, it does each one individually.... is there a way to get it to do each light at the same time? (same for any dimming, it's a little weird.) ???

absolutely, try re-adding the dvdcss software...click on it, to remove it, then click again, to add it.

for now, it's significantly harder to get the ATI drivers to behave. use NVIDIA if you want all of the features of UI2 enabled.

darrenmason, how did you get the orbiter package out of the msi for the windows version?

Users / installing just the orbiter on an existing linux box?
« on: October 01, 2007, 04:23:59 am »
Is there a way to install just the orbiter on a linux box? similar to the windows orbiter package? Just curious. I currently use the web orbiter on my existing ubuntu linux desktop, and that works for now, but I was just curious.

Compatible Products & Services / Re: Orbitor requirements
« on: October 01, 2007, 02:42:18 am »
Basically, the orbiter can run under these platforms:

* Windows 98/XP/Vista using the Windows Orbiter Software
* Windows CE
* Nokia 770/N800
* Linux (netbooting a system as a Media Director)
* Cisco 7970 (uses a proxy orbiter)
* any Web Based device with Javascript support (The Web Orbiter - Also a Proxy orbiter)

For anything that there is not a native port, you can try the Web Based orbiter by using the following URL, after creating a new orbiter of type Generic Proxy Orbiter inside the Orbiters Wizard:

http://192.168.80.1/pluto-admin/weborbiter.php

There is detailed setup information inside the wiki about this particular device, and in the absence of other supported options, it works quite well.

Installation issues / Re: Mythtv install using homebrew transmitter
« on: October 01, 2007, 02:30:52 am »
lirc, even though it is very pervasive in the linux world, is a very cumbersome system to set up and get working correctly, and I never understood why lirc was implemented as a hybrid set of kernel and user space tools. The IRT that LinuxMCE works best with, is the USB-UIRT, which does all its processing on itself, and is much easier to implement system-wise. Installation is typically plug-and-play.

You need to provide more details about your setup, particularly your hardware. We can't diagnose anything without that.

Users / Re: Target Hardware - TiVo?
« on: September 30, 2007, 06:47:45 pm »
Simplest reply?

HELL NO.

The hardware is very tightly coupled, and ALL of the drivers for the important parts are written by Tivo themselves, and while the source code modifications for what Tivo has done are downloadable (per the software license compliance of the GPL), they can not be uploaded into a TiVo because of the software validation processes which prevent non-signed updates from being flashed into the system.

Trust me man, been there, done that, lost sanity, don't even think about it unless you somehow know of a way to bypass all the insane hardware lock-down that nobody has been able to of late.
