They are taking considerable space. Can I remove them after an update without any ill effects?

Developers / Is it possible to delete device templates?
« on: September 06, 2007, 05:19:58 pm »
In the process of trying to get to work a Generic Serial Device I ended up with several device templates that aren't used. Is it possible to delete them? I don't see a way of doing it through the GUI but perhaps this can be done by issuing a direct SQL DELETE statement? Has anyone done this before, and if so, what are the tables that need to be touched?



Users / LinuxMCE in existing MythTV and Asterisk environment
« on: August 24, 2007, 09:06:24 am »
Hello all,

I already have a MythTV and Asterisk environment (one server for each). I'd like to try LinuxMCE but I was wondering if it is possible to configure it to use my existing Myth and Asterisk setup instead of configuring everything again in the new LinuxMCE install. Couple of reasons I want to do this:

- Both Myth and Asterisk are being used in production - both are completely stable, the whole family uses Myth, and I use a VoIP provided that is connected to my Asterisk server. Moving these services to the new LinuxMCE install would cause unwanted disruption and likely introduce instabilities.

- The Myth server is both the backend and the main frontend. Most likely the LinuxMCE machine will be a different one (in a different room), which will require moving all the TV capture hardware (I've got three tuners) to the LinuxMCE machine. Major pain.

- Both machines being used for Myth and Asterisk provide other services as well (web servers, e-mail, spam scanning, backup services, etc.) It's not easy for me to bring them down, netboot, and use them for LinuxMCE.

Has anyone being able to re-use an existing Asterisk and Myth setup with LinuxMCE? I don't care if this is not achievable through an idiot-proof installation - my stuff is running on Debian unstable and I've been using Debian for 10 years, so I don't mind editing configuration files and tweaking the system manually.

And while we are on the topic, is Kubuntu really a requirement? I mean, is it not possible to install the Debian's KDE packages and on top of that the LinuxMCE packages? I think that making LinuxMCE distribution-agnostic would be extremely cool. Anyone working on this?

Thanks for any comments on these topics.
