must admit, this is the 1st bad publicity I've seen, and basically this guy talks out of his ass.

Users / Strange error

Hi All,
I created a play list, then clicked on edit.
After about 3 minutes the following error came up:

Now it might be worth noting.
I have 1.5GB Ram
and a 4GB swop Drive. I really do not think Memory is the issue here.
The admin website seems really slow to work with...

Can I upgrade the divx codec without effecting the workings of LMCE?
Many of my my transcoded movies was transcoded using the divx 6 codec. Some even contain menus that is not supported in the earlier versions of divx.
which version comes with LMCE?

Users / 2 questions. Myth TV & video output
« on: September 20, 2007, 02:39:21 pm »
I live in south africa and it does not seem like mythtv have any channel info for our 4 default channels that every one get. In what format are these? Might make my search easier if i knew what I'm looking for. it oviously downloads some sort of xml file to populate these fields.
The the moment I only have 1 MD. The machine is as a matter of fact not in the living room, but in the study. I have made a special cable using CAT5 shielded to transport the video and audio in a single cable. Now the problem is that when i go in the wizard and select svideo the screen I'm using goes blank and to video goes to the tv. Is there a way that i can have it in clone mode? if not, what tool can i use to remote desktop to the kde environment from my xp laptop?

Users / Ripping of dvds
« on: September 19, 2007, 08:36:33 am »
Hi All,
Does any one know if it is possible to add some sort of compression while ripping dvds?
Im in the process of adding some of my most watched dvd's to lmce, but do not want them to take 7 or 8gb per movie. Is there a way I can rip them as avi? Any one know if there is a linux equivalent of divx converter that can be used. even if it has to be 2 processes. I can rip them as .dvd then just use an app to convert the .dvd file to .avi. At the moment, i ripped 3 movies, and im now copying them to my laptop. I will convert them from here, and then copy them back and delete the .dvd files. Surely there must be a better way...

Users / remote vs pda as oribiter
« on: September 17, 2007, 01:36:02 pm »
I've been having great battles with my self, my pc and lots of the linuxmce documentation.
But i cannot get my HTC Herald (p4350) with WM6 to act as a propper orbiter. I have installed both the Orbiter_treo (that lmce sends by default) as well as the CE one with no luck. Th Xscale orbiter does not look like it supports bluetooth, and the orbiter_treo connects, and lists all the media, but once you select a movie, or song, then it comes up with the screen with play, close or delete. No nothing on that screen is clickable.

So I found this:
Can any one tell me if these logitech remotes are supported. I could not find anything that states it is supported, but cannot see why it would not be. It is a very basic remote.

Users / custom media locations...?
« on: September 12, 2007, 01:22:45 pm »
I've noticed that the media is loaded from /home/[whatever]
I have split my drive into 2 partitions. the 1st partition is about 20gb, and is there purely for the OS, and LMCE. then there is a 4gb swap drive. the rest of the drive was mounted as /MediaSVR as the last partition.
The thinking behind this was so that i do not have to copy the media again after a reinstall.
At  1st I was confused as to why LMCE did not pick up the media on this partition. Now at least i know why. I then created a softlink to my MediaSVR folder, but im not sure this is working like it should. It picks up the media when I click on video on the onscreen orbiter, but when i click on brows media or when i want to assign cover art in the admin webpage, it does not list the media.
Is there a way i can specify the /MediaSVR partition as the default media folder? Or should I perhaps copy the current /home folder contents to /MediaSVR, then mount that as /home? I dont want to experiment these things to much in the fear of breaking it.

Users / Orbeter Freezes phone
« on: September 12, 2007, 01:00:33 pm »
I am using a htc PDA phone with windows mobile 6 loaded.
I then added a bluetooth dongle to my brand new LMCE system (by the way, I cannot believe how easy that was. picked up the bluetooth without me having to lift a finger!)
Once i made the connection, it sent me the software which i then installed. It did however say it was for the previous version of the OS on my phone. Now when i Use the orbiter on my phone to control lmce, it crashes my phone when i exit. Well not a full crash, but it will not let me return to the today screen...
Any one seen this? Maybe a hint: on the orbiter setup screen it looks like it picked up up as symbian 60 or something like that.?

Installation issues / Kubuntu Install from CD
« on: September 07, 2007, 06:12:07 pm »
Im Trying to install the Linux MCE from the 3 CD's i downloaded. I install Kubuntu with no trouble!
I then proceed, to enable the root user, log in at that en then resume the install by running the desktop shortcut that was created. It then comes to a point where it asks me for the live CD of kubuntu. Is this really needed? It is not part of the download section, ISOs. I am really eager to trey this, so what can i do to make this install working without the LIVE cd.
I have the normal Kubuntu feisty install cd and the 2 Linux MCE cds

Then another question:
It asks me to install the nvidia drivers, then after the reboot im running at 640 x 480. Ive got the 6800GT
