*hmm* do you just not read anything?

if linuxMCE did not detect your disk, it probably couldn't read the filesystem. I do not have any NTFS partitions to test, but if it worked, you should have been able to tell LinuxMCE to use the disk, and that all the data on the disk was public... I'm not sure if Kubuntu has read/write support for NTFS out of the box?

This is a known bug, and there is a fix for it, if you want to dig around in the forums (search for smb cifs), and will probably be folded into the next release.

Users / Re: Manage drives????
« on: September 11, 2007, 03:29:55 pm »
Manage Discs only makes sense in the case of Optical drives, currently. It is used to get the status of all the optical drives in the house that are attached to media directors. This is most useful when you have a supported DVD Jukebox such as the Sony VAIO VGP-XL1B3, or a Powerfile C/R200, so that you can:

* Select which disks to play (an alternative if the disc doesn't show up in the video window because it couldn't be identified)
* Identify loaded disks (so that they can show up in the video window)
* Rip loaded disks to disk storage (so that you can take them out of the jukebox to make room for others)

but again, these things are explained in the Demo Video, please do research before posting to the forums.

Developers / Re: Nokia 770 Orbiter
« on: September 11, 2007, 03:24:32 pm »
any news on this? The Orbiter ran insanely slow for me as well on OS2007-HackerEdition, performance improved when i moved to OS2006...as for stability, it seems only occasionally (maybe once a heavy session of pushing buttons, the orbiter will lose connection with the router, at which point it drops me back to a login screen, I hit connect again, and all is well....

1) Find someone who has knows the FOSS world well, has some clout in the FOSS community, and has some free time, and who can act as a community liason to start building a team.

what is FOSS?

Free/Open Source Software.

Users / Re: still problems in ui2 alpha-blended

I am attempting UI2 Blended.. I AM able to successfully use UI2 Masked (I mentioned this already!), I can hear sound, I just can't see anything through the orbiter.

:-(

-Thom


First, which Orbiter version? (UI1 UI2 overlay or UI2 Blended?)
Second, can you see anything through the orbiter? (UI2 only, UI1 blocks everything)
Third, do you hear the audio playing?

Not that this would necessarily fix it but I would go to the media director panel in web admin and try other relevant video driver selections. Sometimes it may just reload things in the right order.

Yes it is worth noting that on cards with two connectors, one of them being VGA, CRT-0 is actually the DVI connector with a VGA adaptor on it. Again, that's not the problem i'm having... the display shows, but I can't see the screen saver, or the media player behind the orbiter.

*hmm*

How did you install? DVD or CDs? Did you change drivers?
I have discovered for me that if I start fiddling everything disintegrates fast the more I try to fix. I keep my media on a separate disk and I can install from the DVD fast. Most of the backup/restore works so the pain isn't great. You will need to manually reinstall any floorplan images. There may be a few other small things to check for.

1. from CD, both times
2. no, same NVIDIA based drivers (I have to use the newest vendor drivers)

Users / Why is my media metadata changing?!
« on: September 10, 2007, 07:00:47 am »
ARRRGGGGGHHHHHH yet another fucking insane #@$)(#@$(@#$(#@%@# !!!

Why, after I go through, and PAINSTAKINGLY SET....EVERY....DAMN....piece of metadata.......

it decides OH, I'm gonna re-set that myself to something else completely!

all of my dvd-rips that I've done INSIDE linuxmce are being reset to type: Low-Res

anywhere I set a source type of HD 1080 or HD 720, it gets reset to something else

#(@%@#(%@#(%#@ (!!!!!!!!! WTF?!?!?!

my frustration with this system is mounting exponentially, and I am about to freaking burst a blood vessel!

Users / Sony VAIO XL1B3 Jukebox failure
« on: September 10, 2007, 06:51:43 am »
My Jukebox has spontaneously decided that the optical drive will no longer respond to commands at all. The changer element still works, but the Powerfile_C200 driver gets confused because it can't find the data drive attached to the changer.... The drive, curiously, is not showing up in /proc/scsi/scsi after successive reboots, and power-offs of both the media director it is attached to, or to the changer itself.

Interestingly enough, my backup XL1B3 unit seems to work fine, it detected it and started using it without a problem.. Is there any way to jog the optical drive, to reset it? any tricks anyone knows? argggg this is just not my night at all. :-(

UGH,

I can't seem to activate the full UI2+Alpha blending... nothing shows up behind the control panel...even though the $(@#$@#(%$@# Diagnostics tool works _PERFECTLY_!

I have given up and am using UI2 with Masking, but this _really_ __Really__ sucks! Why is this happening? I have an NVIDIA card that is supported, and it DID work the very first time I installed LinuxMCE..but I had to reinstall it to put it on the production hard disk, and it doesn't work anymore.. All the right xorg.conf configurations are there, and the Extensions are enabled (Render and Composite), so really, WHAT THE HELL?!

*cries*

yup, I am in agreement here too. let's DO it. my main thing right now is, I'm trying to get a development environment set up... I tried using the UbuntuHelper scripts, but I have a funny feeling those are for 1.0??? .... not sure....

I will write down how to set up an up-to-date environment, so long as I know I am building the right tree, the right environment, etc.

Users / Re: How to get the image (jacket) for a dvd
« on: September 10, 2007, 01:05:21 am »
The simplest way, is to rename the .iso files to .dvd, and to place them into the appropriate media folders where LinuxMCE can see them.. i.e. /home/public/data/videos ....

once this is done, and updatemedia has crawled them (give it 10 minutes), you can then go to the Pluto Web Admin.. at http://192.168.80.1/pluto-admin/  and select Cover art from the Files And Media pull-down menu.

Hopefully this will get you closer.. You can adjust the keywords, and filters for each to make sure that the right cover art is given.. But the best tips are:

* Use a title that matches the disc you are trying to match. Use either spaces or underscores in the filename.. If you need to, make sure the keywords match, and that there aren't any extraneous words in the keyword field.
* Increase the # displayed on a page if you want to get them all done at once, enter something like 1000, it will take longer, but you'll be able to get them done in one pass.

Once you've entered in keywords, it will scan amazon.com for the data. Do keep in mind that this will take a fair amount of time. Be Patient, wait.. and the page will refresh with matching cover art.. Find the ones that are applicable... It may not find all of them, but that's okay, they will show up again in the cover art list, if you say "None of these" so that you can refine the keywords and try again.

--PLEASE READ-- --PLEASE READ-- --PLEASE READ-- --PLEASE READ--

I WOULD SUGGEST COPYING FURTHER MEDIA INSIDE LINUXMCE, THIS WILL ENSURE THAT ALL MATCHING METADATA WILL BE FOUND, AND YOU WILL GET ADDITIONAL METADATA SUCH AS CHAPTERS THAT WILL NOT BE FOUND ON A SCAN FOR COVER ART SEARCH.

I hope this helps.
