i've actually seen this when I use my windows mce remote. Using it to change channels seems to make it jump twice as well in my limited mythtv use. It only seems to happen on the core/hybrid and not the md i also use it for.

Maybe I watch too much 24/Stargate...and they always lose those trackers anyways. I just found the whole setup funny. If he has all that free time we should point him our way.

It looks like this is some kind of IR control with some 'weirdness' done to it. I read around the net and it seemed that special equipment has to be used / created.

Sorry to any admins, normally I donut post this stuff but I really couldn't resist.

http://hardware.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=08/02/14/0419227&from=rss <---slashdot article, mainly funny for the comments.

'...the outgoing Linux Australia group president's hacked home, in which just about anything from watering the lawn, to opening his blinds, or checking the mail can be controlled through a software environment.'

Maybe we should send this guy a quick install DVD... I personally like the sub-dermal RF-ID chip.

sorry if this is in the wrong place, but theres no general discussion area.

Maybe in some stickies/FAQ we could show people some of the other forums for the parts of LMCE? like for mythtv, kubuntu/ubuntu and asterisk. sometimes the questions can be answered elsewhere too.

I think it may be a good idea actually. Maybe not to those forums exclusively, but sub-forums highlighting the different areas as you said.

Nephus: Instead of debating semantics, lets try and SOLVE some problems. I believe you mentioned the dis-organization of information. What specifically was the problem?

If you feel that we are too hard edged or unfriendly, im sorry for that. But there are many questions that get posted daily that people who have no connection to the other try and help. So please, lets move away from negative and try and improve by putting forth concrete ideas and suggestions, not nebulous personal observations.

I hear a lot about how 'confusing' and 'disorganized' it is. Can anyone provide specific examples of this? How should it be organized? I personally find it to be fine. Yes there are some missing articles, but I don't see anyone trying to get that info from other users so they themselves can add what they think is missing.

Im not a c++ programmer by any means, which limits me to a lot of the lower level stuff which I would love to help with. But specifics go a long way towards solving a problem. And 'confusing' is far from specific.

feel free to pm me even, leave a message about whats wrong and i'll will make my best attempt to add it.

seriously, lets get it figured out if there is truly something there to figure out.

It's good to see an attempt at reorganizing some of this info in a more logical and easier to search format.  I've been researching this package for months trying to figure out how to get everything properly set up before I began, and some info is almost impossible to find a clear answer on.  The wiki has become a mess, and posting a question on the forums... well you're more likely to be attacked than get any help.  It does no good to search when all you find is thread after thread of people being too full of themselves, yet not a single answer to the issue you're searching for.  There's no point in building a community full of bad neighbors.

-Do you have any examples of how the wiki is 'a mess' ?
-Where are the threads with people full of themselves. Normally its someone asking the person posting to do some research before they post. Generally, when I search for something, its located. After all, it had to be answered once for people to tell you to search.

We need the users to be less needy and 'do it now' and more community based. Posting a topic without looking into it at all is pretty irresponsible. Im not saying this is you, but there seem to be a lot of recent new users who feel this is their personal support forum. Part of being a community is not being a burden to others in the community unnecessarily.

I really cant understand why people have so many problems. As Hagen said, its folley not to back your data up, or in my case, start with a completely new (or old but wiped) drive.

Now you want to talk about sketchy, The Netgear SC101 reformats the HD when you add it to the enclosure...and DOESN'T TELL YOU. I lost about 200 gigs of data that according to the manual which I DID READ states nothing about wiping existing data. I had to go to their website under support and THATS where it tells you. But I wasnt installing an OS, it was supposed to be an external drive...

That being said, I suppose it would be good for someone when they have the time (i can think of many  things more important than this IMO) it should be done.

And Hagen I see your point about keeping the thread as a big warning to people who install stuff without paying much attention.

« on: February 12, 2008, 09:05:29 am »
I cant be sure but:

1. Did you look closely at the mother board? Are the slots numbered or anything like that?
2. Did you check the bios? Something may have changed there that you need to adjust.

I have added 3 extra internal drives with no problems.

hope this helps.

Anyways, enough of me hijacking the thread.  :D

It's my thread, Jack away.

// that sounded bad

if you say so...

in other news, i hate CA sometimes. I would pretty much have to be a fracking millionaire to build my own home out here. Land is freaking expensive! I helped a retired Navy Captain (more like was recruited ) move into his new huge house up in washington state. New house and land totaled out a little over 500k. It was a nice place too. A little generic for me but it was huge and was really one of the only homes I had seen with Cat-5 to every room, central wiring closet and a psuedo smart home system. This was in 2001 so was all the more impressive. To me anyways.

i guess the moral of my rambling is while it is a large job, im a bit jealous  ;) One day i'll escape this insane town and build my own house. I have enough freaking designs.

And the last thing. Going back to the point of the thread, this is some thing that irks me in general. The restrictions on what we can do with our signal. It just seems more and more restrictions are being put on the end users to the point it becomes a serious hassle. When I 1st watched the video, it was clear that a box would be needed in most cases because my current cable co was going to all digital and directv and dish required a box. Its sad to say, but I dont think we are going to get anything more streamlined than that setup. Oh well

I've been reading about Pluto and now Linux MCE for the two years I've been planning my house and only today did I even get around to installing it for the first time ever.

Its very good that you are not a developer for Linux MCE.

So are you going to go cry elsewhere or do we have to listen to your complaining? For some reason, you and linuxMCE are incompatible. Great story, now please go harass the next board where you will complain incessantly. Also, nobody asked for your opinion on the video, your thoughts on developers and so on so please stow that crap. Its uncalled for. Please, go figure this out yourself. We don't need negative nancy's wasting space for the sake of their ego.

wish you luck on the build.

Thanks.  There is something about the do-it-yourselfer in me that helped me make the decision to GC it myself, and perhaps that same attitude is what draws me to linux...

skip

its probably that feeling of ultimate satisfaction when your done. I just finished a small room refurbish and I take pride that I didn't sub out a damn thing. Anyways, enough of me hijacking the thread.  :D
