Installation issues / Re: Problem with DVD playback
« on: September 23, 2007, 06:20:02 pm »
okay, this is popping up _EVERYWHERE_ wth? nobody seems to be making this connection...

in some setups, UI2 with Alpha blending literally creates a situation where the individual component windows are NOT overlapping correctly at all. I do not know how to fix this, except to completely reinstall...and it only happens on the core systems, not with any external media directors.

the simplest solution for now, is to change your settings to just UI2 with Masking (The middle option), and your videos etc will play correctly.

not so simplest? try reinstalling to see if that fixes it.

also, use the attributes in the web admin to your advantage.... you can create Genres... use this to group TV related shows, for example..be creative.

(I can hear you all whining now....puh-leeze.. if you don't like it... write another one... the media center was meant to hold MOVIES and RECORDED TV PROGRAMS (on a limited basis, watch a few, delete em)...)

I take a different approach.

I make a DVD with menus, and schlorp the episodes onto that disc by season.

I also take advantage of the fact that I'm not storing this onto a disc, but rather onto the hard disks on the core, so the images for these are larger.

It does clean up the list quite a bit. :-)

I am learning the ins-and-outs of doing a plugin, and a DataGrid based plugin for emulated games is on the list. I intend to basically use the same methodology of everything in one place and filter appropriately to launch games, and to essentially break things up into folders, with a launcher script in each folder to trigger the appropriate game.

No, I will not be doing it any other way.
No, I will not be adding on additional features. This makes sense for what most people will be using it for.
If you want to use it, cool, if not, okay, write your own.

Installation issues / Re: Screen resizes during initial setup
« on: September 19, 2007, 06:50:29 pm »
as a notice.. guys... try at least one install with the CD's, if the DVDs do not properly install... the DVD is essentially a frozen image of a system just before the AVWizard starts, so if your hardware setup doesn't jive exactly, weird..things..will...happen...

Installation issues / Re: Orbiter failed to setup the transparency
« on: September 19, 2007, 06:47:27 pm »
More than likely, if you're seeing this, and you have an nvidia card... it means, that for some reason, the nvidia drivers were NOT installed, and everything fell back to "vesa" ... install the NVIDIA vendor drivers as root.

If you're seeing this on another card..more than likely, you will not be able to use UI2 with Alpha Blending..this requires currently an NVIDIA card (or if you have a Fiire station system it will work there too)....

I actually consolidate TV series onto DVD images (which can be a bit bigger than an actual DVD.), so that they don't jam up the media display.

There is a hole, but it has no jack in it, it's just an empty hole (I see no contacts etc), on either of the two UIRT's I purchased.

I looked, there is no place to attach the blaster to the UIRT. I have an extra IR blaster that has a teeny little headphone plug, but there is no connector for it.

and yes, I know about sql2cvs, that's why I was asking if there was another method in place until we knew that worked?

And yes, I _was_ controlling the motorola via firewire and a little program. and it works, HOWEVER, I wanted to be able to do this from DCE, not mythtv itself, because I _would_ like the _guide_ and _livetv_ portions to work correctly as well.

Users / USB UIRT mounting tips
« on: September 17, 2007, 07:29:59 am »
I'm wondering where would the best place to be to mount a USB UIRT, I have the following setup:

Westinghouse SK-26H240S LCD TV (which I have made a device template for, who do I send this to?)
Motorola DCT-6200 cable box (again, who do I send this to?)

and I am controlling both of them, with a USB UIRT reciever... and I am wondering where is the best place to place the equipment/ir blaster so that I can:

(a) blast appropriately to the above mentioned devices and
(b) still be able to use my Windows MCE remote when I wish (alongside my Fiire Chief and Orbiters)

I have attached a picture below...



What can I do? Any ideas?
