Users / Is anyone using the Game Player?

I'm just curious.

There is an implementation of this in MH Play Media, where you set the Resume flag.

However, in its current state, it does not work properly, and needs engineering time to debug and fix.

Basically guys, what is it going to take, to have VPN work out of the box for the most common platforms? I typically don't have to go into advanced in each of the VPN clients and set things like this.

If you go into mysql, e.g.

Code: [Select]
mysql pluto_main -uroot

you now have access to the database that LinuxMCE uses internally.

If you do an SQL query, e.g.

Code: [Select]
SELECT * from Style;

You will see all the rows of the style table, corresponding to different "Styles" used by HA Designer to draw lots of things like "text".

Notice that one of the rows, has a description of Clock, this is PK_Style # 27.

If you then do a query of:

Code: [Select]
SELECT * from StyleVariation WHERE FK_Style = 27;

You'll see the information for style #27. PK_Style becomes FK_Style out of convention, because in the Style table, the Style is a primary key, whilst in the StyleVariation table, it is a Foreign Key (it references another table).

Note the columns in StyleVariation, particularly PixelHeight. This is the value we want to change.

If you then do an explicit query of:

Code: [Select]
UPDATE StyleVariation SET PixelHeight=600 WHERE FK_Style=27;

You've then changed the Pixel Height variation from 840 to 600.

After this point, you'll need to regenerate the orbiters.

So basically, font is too big... ok...

if you open mysql and

SELECT * from Style;

you'll see a PK_Style for Clock

Edit the StyleVariation table, and change the font size entry for clock, which is, I believe 840 pixels, to something smaller, see if this fixes it.

When you do lsusb, do you see this in the list?

you need to do \xXX\xXX\xXX ... note the backslash.


I would suggest trying LinuxMCE 12.04, and then talking either here in the forum, or on #linuxmce in on IRC, so we can help get this resolved. There hasn't been very much maintenance on the LIRC_DCE driver, and we need to make sure to get this working for most transcievers, again.

Can you tell me what you have for your IR transciever, and what the USB ID is etc, so that we can determine if a device template needs to be made for it?

that is all.

For those that don't know, this is the desk of Langston Ball, the guy working on the next generation Orbiter engine (qOrbiter).


Users / Re: 710,810,1004 or what?
« on: January 27, 2014, 04:02:10 am »
I would suggest using 1204, as this is where all the development work is happening, especially with trying to get the telecom system back up to spec.

(1) Nobody has added a template to support TDM trunking with Asterisk, as we designed the wizard to handle SIP and IAX trunks, as they are infinitely easier to set up.

(2) there is no _phones_ wizard, only the page in the web admin to configure the phone devices.

(3) Thanks for liking the idea, but the documentation is only as good as what the community can contribute and maintain. This means people like you ferreting out and helping us find issues, because of the sheer scope of this project, we can't keep everything juggled all at the same time, nor expect to support every possible combination of how this software can be set up, at every point in time.

(4) hardware suggestions are just that, suggestions, and again, are put together from successful installations in the community. Those of us with good hardware configurations will post these on the wiki for others to benefit from, what else do you want?

(5) Thank you so much for offering to help with documentation. I would suggest logging onto IRC,, and going into #linuxmce (and eventually into #linuxmce-devel) so we can help you (a) get started with a workable solution, and (b) provide a funnel for brain dumping not only the existing documentation on the wiki, but also what's in our heads (which is infinitely more, it's just the way it is...)

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:
