I am in the UK and using linuxmce, what sort of thing were you after?

I bought all my hardware in the UK and have setup a basic system that can handle uk digital tv and an input from my sky+ box.

give us a little more details what info you are after and we can try and help


Users / Re: Current State of VDR vs MythTV
« on: May 06, 2008, 06:55:25 pm »
Hi Andrew,

you mention

Question 1) Does the current VDR integration support having all the tuner cards in a server and then multiple clients (MDs) utilising them - as MythTV does quite well?

"Yes VDR supports this but currently inside LinuxMCE this is not automatically setup for you. The options here are to configure vdr yourself to do this or to wait until we have this available in an update."

How long away is this update, will it be with the full release?

If this is the case is it a massive job to get the tv on the mds in its current state if I check around the VDR forums a bit, is there a plugin i should be checking out?

My first thought would be a corrupt dvd, either from the download or after burning to DVD. So far I have never had a problem with a corrupt download when downloading using a torrent file.

If you have another suitable maching around try installing on that with your dvd, if it fails again it will most likely be the dvd, if it works there is something wrong with the first machine you were trying to install on - possibly a faulty dvd drive.

cheers Andrew, I thought this might be the case, do you have a rough ETA for the update?

rc1 has been running  well with an MD attached so it will be good to get tv on the md going too and then I should be able to start making proper use of linuxmce :)

I have installed vdr-admin and this looks good (will this eventually automatically added?) and also vdr-dev to start having a look at the plugins as suggested in your helpful wiki entry.

I am guessing that the streaming to the mds is handled by a plugin? but its the sky one I have seen mentioned around the forum I was planning to try out, have you had a play with this?


Installation issues / VDR status in RC1
« on: April 25, 2008, 01:43:28 am »
Have got rc1 up and running without too much fuss and went for the vdr option.

made my channel.conf file and uploaded it through the web control panel.

Hybryd/core  gets tv fine but MD gets no signal and channel not available error, should this work or is it not implemented to work like this yet?

Gave having live tv on the cores screen ago and still didn't get a picture on the "watch tv" page so will have to have abit more of a go later at this, should it be as easy as you described?

I like the functionality that vdradmin-am provides to allow access to setting up recording remotely and it looks like vdr is going to be good once its finished.

you mention using VLC - is this how you currently make use of VDR on your MD's? and is it easy to do? How long do you think its going to be before a version will be available that allows the MD's to watch tv through UI2?

so in effect i am am just remotely viewing the cores tv through the browser. I assume this still  limits me to watching one channel at a time on any number of MD's?
cheers for the help

After realising my misunderstanding I went home and added the vdradmin package - very easy due to totallymaxed's tutorial.
I can now login to the vdradmin with my browser and can see a list of the channels that I think must have been setup through me uploading the channels.conf file.

I have gone through a few of the other menu options and the admin looks cool but when i go to the watch tv page nothing happens. I get a page with a tvscreen on showing nothing but snow with a big remote control next to it but when I try the buttons nothing seems to happen.

From what I can make out, live tv is not yet accessable through UI2 on an MD as it is still being developed, but should I be able to view TV with vdradmin through a browser? or have I misunderstood again?

thanks for clearing the previous issue up Andrew.

ahh so it sounds as though I am a bit confused then.

On another recent post you suggested the vdr was 100% working, but maybe i didn;t ask the right question. If I want to get a picture on the MDs what do I need to do? Do I have to wait until the next update? and if so how long will this be approximately?

I have now reinstalled linuxmce beta 3 to try and get VDR working to the best of its current abilities.

everything went ok and i managed to create a UK-WinterHill channel.conf file from kaffine that I then used with the vdr scan utility to create a VDR cchannel.conf file which I then was able to upload in the admin website. I can then start VDR on the Hybryd and it works and i can see TV.

I then setup an MD but when I start up  Live tv I get the big "No Signal" Message and along the bottom flashes up "No channel available".

Am I missing something? I got the same message when i tried to start up TV on the hybryd without uploading a channels.conf file in the web admin, but I assume as long as I have done this it should work.

I have only had the input from the sky box working in 0704 in mythtv, I have not yet tried this on vdr on 0710, i am not sure how to go around it as mythtv seemed to have the options to do this, I will have to have a look at vdr in a bit mroe detail.

rearding no signal, you suggest all this should now be working. Was this an issue? and will it depend which beta version I am using or should it update itself automatically from whatever version I have?

I managed to create the channels conf file and see tv on the hybryd so should I need to do any more with the file to make all the mds see the picture

I too am interested in getting sky/virgin integrated and working well, after all there are quite a lot of channels on sky/virgin that aren;t available on normal digital tv.

on 0704 I had mythtv working with my nova t-500 card and a pvr150 connected to the s-video output on my sky+ box, my experience here was that i could get it to work and on all MD's aswell but changing channel was painfully slow compared to sky and for some reason changing from a dvb channel to the sky coming in on the pvr150 would take 5 mins!

I have also setup 0710 beta 3 with vdr and I have managed to get this going on the Hybryd machine but when I try to view tv on an MD I get No Signal. I have read posts that suggest this is still being worked on, It will be great when this is sorted, any ETA Andrew on this?

For me this is the missing function that is holding me back from making full use of linuxmce. vdr's ability to make use of 3 nova t-500 to cover the 6 multiplexes and offer great recording capability along with the input of at least 1 sky box will be what I am after and give me a valid sky+ alternative.
