Users / Question about LMCE 810 upgrades for mplayer/transcode/mjpegtools
« on: December 06, 2011, 05:57:41 pm »
I noticed that I have some upgrades available for mplayer, transcode and mjpegtools. Should I run these updates? Is there anything I need to worry about if I do? Do I need to run these upgrades on the MD's as well or just on the core?

Users / Cannot get subtitles to work in Xine for .avi files
« on: November 29, 2011, 06:03:14 am »
Ok, So I followed the directions in the wiki and I did a search on this forum and still I cannot get subtitles to work.
Here is what I've done.
First: make sure that the subtitle file is named correctly and in the same directory as the .avi file.
File Name : movie.avi
Subtitle: movie.avi.sub

Second: Make sure to uncomment the following lines in the xine.conf file on the MD where I'm playing the movie.(I also made the same change on the core)
gui.subtitle_autoload: 1
misc.spu_subtitle_size: large

Did a full regen on the MD.

Still no change.

I booted into the core and ran Xine from the desktop and loaded the .sub file and everything was working with no problem.
What am I doing wrong?


Users / Supported USB Web cams
« on: November 24, 2011, 07:16:49 pm »
I'm looking for a known working USB web cam for surveillance. I tried to set up a Logitech quick cam that I had but I am not able to get any visual. Is anyone using a USB cam? If so what brand and model?


Users / Is there a list of supported Gamepads and Joy sticks for LMCE 810?
« on: November 13, 2011, 04:03:28 pm »
Just wondering if there is a list of supported game pads and joy sticks for LMCE 810?

Hello everyone..
I finally got around to installing the LMCE 810 release. My core and core MD installed with no problem. Everything seems solid but my diskless MD will not start the install process. I remember during beta there was something I had to do to get the diskless MD installers to work, is there a command I need to run to get the the diskless MDs to install? I'm getting the following error
Unable to locate configuration file
Boot failed: press a key to retry, or wait for reset...

Hey, I had a friend give me a first gen apple tv and was wondering if can be used as a thin client somehow? Any feedback would be appreciated.


Users / Boxee, kinda a fun little addon for just media
« on: February 10, 2011, 09:13:25 pm »
Hey all,
I just wanted to share with everyone a neat little media setup that I was using along side LMCE. I am sure some of you have heard of it.
My wife didn't like all the extra bells and whistles in the LMCE orbiter so I set up a boxee box downstairs and mapped it to the core and had it scan my media. It imported all my IDE Tags and went out and found some that I didn't have before. It was pretty neat.
Worked pretty good for just media.

anyway... carry on..


Users / Strange MD Issue
« on: December 21, 2010, 09:19:17 pm »
Hello all,
I have a strange issue with my living room MD.
Basically when I let the MD sit and it goes idle and then I try to use the MD there is a few min delay for it to recognize that I have pressed buttons on the remote. It looks as if the skin has to reload. Once it loads again everything works fine until I let it sit again. This happens on UI 1 or UI 2. I have replaced the MD and there is still no change. My other MD's do not have this problem and I did not have this problem in LMCE 7.10. The only thing that I can think of that might cause this issue is maybe the physical distance from my switch to my MD.

My switch is upstairs in my closet and the MD is downstairs. That MD happens to be the one that is farthest away from the switch. Could it be that I am just dropping packets or there is a delay due to distance?

Any thoughts on this would be helpful.


Users / Using the core as a SOCKS proxy server
« on: August 17, 2010, 08:42:23 pm »
Back in 7.10 I used to use my core as a proxy server using a SOCKS5 connection with putty and foxyproxy for firefox. I didn't have to configure anything on the server it's self to do this other then having an open port. Since upgrading to 8.10 I have not been able to get this to work. My Putty is set up exactly the way it was before.
I can log in to the server using Putty but when I try to enable my foxy proxy my connection just times out when trying to brows web pages.
Does anyone know if there are any extra steps to get this working. I am just not knowledgeable enough at this point to figure it out on my own.
Does anyone else use their core in 8.10 as a proxy?

Users / MD's are slow to boot after update to 8.10
« on: July 04, 2010, 04:35:06 am »
Anyone experiencing very long boot times on MD's? It used to only take about 2-3 min. per MD now it takes about 10. Just wondering if anyone else has had this issue.

Users / LMCE and Blocking web sites...
« on: June 27, 2010, 04:01:15 am »
There comes a time in every Dads life when he has to block inappropriate content from the internet because his son can't be trusted with the responsibility of being on the web sites he is supposed to.

Are there any ways to block specific web sites using LMCE's admin site?

Users / Is there a windows orbiter for LMCE 8.10?
« on: June 25, 2010, 10:06:04 pm »
After recently updating to 8.10 I tried to click on the Windows orbiter for install and noticed that it downloads a file to my system that contains 0k. When I try to run this file I get an error message to contact the vendor because this may not be a valid install file. Is the windows orbiter located on a separate download for LMCE 8.10?

I just upgraded from 7.10 to 8.10 recently. I have used 7.10 for about 2 years and had it configured so that I can access my admin page and web orbiter remotely. I have recently tried setting this up in 8.10 and I cannot seem to get it to work.
I went to the security screen and enabled outside connections. I set the port I want to connect on and then I also set up the port forward in the network screen's firewall settings. Just like I used to have to do in 7.10. Everything looks pretty much the same as I remember it. I have done this a few different times since over the last few years I have had to reinstall 7.10 more then once.
Is there a step in 8.10 that I am missing. I have checked the Wiki and i don't see anything different.

Any help would be appreciated.


I am sure this is a known issue but I didn't see anything about this right off hand. I finally upgraded to 8.10... Got one of my MD's going and went to play a .dvd file that was ripped from 7.10 and it will not play because the dvdcss library is not installed. There is not software listed in the software area of the AV wizard so I am at a loss as to how to download the required software. Any Ideas?

Users / I think I need an IP Camera- Please read, super creepy
« on: March 28, 2010, 01:59:05 pm »
Hey,... been a while...
Was working in my yard yesterday and my wife and I found an intimidating threat carved in to the cement wall that addressed my wife by name.
I can think of a few unstable people from our past that might will us some harm so I was somewhat creeped out.

So, I think I am going to invest in an affordable IP Camera (or any other camera that would work) and some zwave sensors. I would prefer one that has a night setting.

I do have a standard home security system and have not been using LMCE for our security but I figure the extra protection couldn't hurt.

Any help would be appreciated.
