Users / Core Crashes
« on: September 16, 2008, 03:35:47 pm »
As of late I have had some issues with my Hybrid core. It was locking up quite a bit then I reinstalled and it worked fine for about a month and a half then I came home last Friday to find that X would not load and I was getting errors in the start up process that stated that my system could not write to my swap partitions. I suspect that my hard drive failed and I replaced it and reinstalled. But now I have been getting random lockups daily like I used to before I removed a problematic MD. Just wondering in general how many people have constant problems with their core or hybrid/core.

Users / Issue with Live TV on MD
« on: August 30, 2008, 10:24:23 pm »
I am using myth in LMCE. When I go to live TV everything seems fine. It doesn't lock up or anything, however.. it seems to skip here and there. I will be watching TV and then it will pause for a second or 2 and then catch up. The network connection to this particular MD is 10/100. I have the 64bit version of LMCE on my core and the MD I have is 32bit.  Are there any known issues regarding this?-Dustin

Users / Media that shouldn't be media at all....
« on: August 19, 2008, 05:19:58 pm »
Ok, a while back I posted about having duplicate media in my media sorter. Well I have been playing with it and I still do.... but thats not the only problem. It seems that all of the AV wizard movies and on screen warnings are showing up in my media sorter as well. This makes it rather irritating to scroll through when trying to pull up videos to watch. I can deal with the duplicate dvd entries. What page or attribute in the Admin site do I need to change to fix this? I have been trying to deal with it now for the last week or so to no avail.

Users / Quick Question about hard drives
« on: August 18, 2008, 06:48:09 pm »
In my core I have 2 250Gb hard drives. I am getting a warning that says disk space is getting low. I took a look at my disk space. I show that one is of my 250Gb drives is almost full and the other is empty. I thought LMCE was supposed to just use whatever drive you have available for storage if set up that way by default. The second drive has no OS and was completely blank when I installed LMCE. Is there something I need to do to make this drive active?

Users / Some Windows Remote Questions
« on: August 12, 2008, 04:03:37 pm »
I bought 2 Windows MCE Remotes. They are different models but very similar. One of them came with an IR Blaster and the other with just the IR receiver.

So I plugged the IR receiver/blaster into my hybrid core via usb and everything seemed to work fine. I am not using the blaster for anything, just remote functionality for the system. So when I built my first MD I plugged in my IR receiver/blaster and everything worked. Well I had some problems with that MD and it was crashing my network. So I swapped it out with a second MD that I had not put online yet. I plug in the IR receiver/blaster and it is recognized and it looks like everything is fine... except the remote doesn't act the same way. Some of the buttons don't work now. My >| button doesn't work in the video sorter. My back button works as the stop button when I am watching live TV.
So, How did this happen and how do I fix it?

Second, The IR receiver that came with my other remote doesn't seem to do anything. I plug it in and I get the red light when I use the remote but nothing changes. I know the remote works because I can use it on my system that uses the other IR receiver/blaster.

Could it be the case that since I had the other receiver plugged in first and then removed it and replaced it with another that for some reason the MD is not loading the new one? Is there a test screen somewhere in the admin web site that I can use to check the settings?

Users / Duplicate meida showing up in the media list
« on: August 06, 2008, 04:50:59 pm »
Has anyone had a problem with Duplicate media showing up in their media sorter?
My MD had a hard drive formated to NTFS with a bunch of movies in AVI format on the drive. The drive also has windows XP on it so if I want I can boot into windows. Anyway, Ever since I added the drive I have noticed that my media has been populated from that hard drive but it is duplicated. Basically the whole first page is the same movie file displayed multiple times. How do I make LMCE list each media file one time rather then duplicating them?

I have also noticed that my LMCE wizard video files and security system warnings are showing up in me media list now. How did that happen? I have not made any changes to the system other then just telling it to use the new drive when directed and make it public.

Users / Core Locking up, Most common causes
« on: July 30, 2008, 04:44:37 pm »
I have had my hybrid core up for over a week now. It works pretty good except every now and then it seems to lock up. I notice it first at the MD since the hybrid is in my closet. It didn't seem to have a problem until I installed my MD. The MD works great when the system is up. I don't know for sure if the MD is the actual cause or if it could be that the core is finally controlling my network and for some reason it is crashing. Are there some common things I can check?

Users / Considering for a MD Shuttle SN68SG2 AMD

Is anyone using one of these for a MD? If so are they good or bad? They seem like they would work pretty well.

Users / Anyone Using the Microsoft MCE IR Keyboard?
« on: July 23, 2008, 06:54:19 pm »
I think I may have posted about this a while back. But I was wondering if anyone was using the Microsoft IR keyboard.

I have one here, The remote portion of the keyboard works but I cannot get the actual keyboard and mouse functions to work. I had found some drivers a while back and tried to install them on my test core. The result was not good... It locked up my core and eventually I had to remove the drivers. I put in a request in the road maps portion of the forum when I first came across the problem. I just figured I would check since I just found the keyboard under my desk.

Users / S-video and Composite Not working on my MD
« on: July 23, 2008, 04:52:11 pm »
Ok, So I finally got around to installing my MD on my living room TV. I have an older TV, not flat or plasma or LCD, we are old school. I cannot get S-video or composite to work. I have tried 2 different video cards and neither one work. I went through all the different settings and nothing ever changes on my screen. Is there anyone else having this issue?
Any thoughts or suggestions... or should I just eat it and go get a new TV with DVI or HDMI in?

Users / Something Interesting you all might Like
« on: July 21, 2008, 10:47:55 pm »
So, Its nothing special but the company I work for makes a product called an iPanel. It is basically a monitor with a built in Digitizer and you use an electromagnetic pen kinda like a mouse.
Well, I sometimes fix them and I managed to get some spare parts and rebuilt one and mounted it for maintaining my Hybrid/core.

Here are some pics.

New iFrame

Here is a link to you tube for a 15 second video of how it works.

Users / Does the CM15A Work with LMCE?
« on: July 21, 2008, 08:18:14 pm »
I finally got my LMCE completely integrated and running my home network. It actually much improved my connection speed since I upgraded my switch and all my LAN cards are Gigabit.
Anyway.. so I want to start venturing into the lighting next. I was looking at x10 stuff and was wondering if the CM15a was compatible. I only see the CM11 on the wiki.

Users / Looking for a good, available Cell phone Orbiter
« on: July 18, 2008, 03:51:47 pm »
I checked the known working hardware section of the wiki for a good cell phone orbiter.
None of the ones listed seem to be provided by Verizon. I was wondering if there are any good cell phone orbiters that are not listed.
This is what I found on the Wiki, Maybe I am looking in the wrong place.


Users / Setting up an HP USB printer/scanner.
« on: July 17, 2008, 04:28:04 pm »
I have one of those all in one HP printers. Bought it back in 2005ish. Is there any trick to getting it set up. I plugged in the USB and nothing seemed to happen. I checked the Hardware info in KDE and it was not listed. Is there anything special I need to do to get the printer to load? I have set up a network printer in ubuntu before and it was pretty straight forward.

Users / Does RC1 or 2 still have problems with Myth Locking up?
« on: July 17, 2008, 04:09:33 pm »
I installed my first MD last night. I noticed that my myth tv locked up again like it used to on my hybrid/core. I thought this issue was fixed. I can't remember if I installed RC 1 or RC 2. If I upgrade to RC 2 Using the dvd installer will this fix my problem or do I have to fix it by hand again.
If I have to make the changes my self does anyone have a link to the instructions handy? I can most likely find them but if you know where they are off hand that would be helpful.
