Yes, look at that specific post, there is a font called HelveticaNeue-UltraLight.ttf.

Jeebus! Intel are cranking these fuckers out!

It would be interesting to see how well this one runs, roughly same family of parts, so I don't see why not, most striking difference for me is an upgraded, faster GPU...

I had started code to build a Pandora player and plugin based on the PianoBar source code, but other priorities got pushed up. It needs to be coded, either by me, or by someone else... -Thom

let's set aside some time to remote in, so I can see what's going on. I no longer use MythTV in LinuxMCE, so would need to look at an actual installation, to see what's going on.

We have a number of scripts in MythTV_Plugin which handle guide refresh, but I am not sure where they are being called anymore, greps aren't being forthcoming:

I would suggest testing this in 12.04, as we have rewritten the ZWave driver to use Open-ZWave. We are no longer making code changes to the old driver.


Hi! Great that you want to implement support for more hardware! LinuxMCE is more than happy to accomodate, however due to the sheer flexibility and options on implementing this code, it can be a bit tough to figure out where to start.

What you want to do, is create a DCE device for your lighting interface. It involves:

1. Creating a device template, describing your device, what it needs to function, what commands it can receive, events it can send, and any plug and play information which can be used to find the interface.
2. You will need to implement the code for the lighting interface. Currently you can do this in either C++ or Ruby (or shell script, using the DCE Whisperer).

You should read the following wiki pages:

And should you need more direction, feel free to stop by #linuxmce-devel on, and talk with developers. Hopefully we can get you on the right path.

This may very well be a bug. Can you file a ticket, so we can take a look @ it? :)

and yes, if you have a TV that has either Ethernet or RS232, it can be controlled that way.

I am working with the USB UIRT engineer to find the problem that cropped up in 12.04 regarding the UIRT.

My only recommendatiion is to please get one with Ethernet.

Right, I forgot about the gPXE boot CD/USB/Bootfloppy :)

The i5 mostly would come in handy for more advanced game emulation play. The i3 that I have here in my Den is more than adequate for video playback (especially with the new Xine that we built that does va-api acceleration.)

My NUC is mostly in an open area behind the TV, so overheating really isn't an issue, but, the device itself uses a mobile i3/i5 CPU, so a little less oomph, for a lot less thermal output.

Simply set the laptop's BIOS to boot from the network, if available. See what happens?

The Intel NUC works well under 1204, now. <-- i3 variant. <-- i5 variant, with thunderbolt ports and USB 3.0 ports
