Users / Re: USB-Uirt and scenarios
« on: November 19, 2007, 10:20:05 pm »
Ok, so I just received mine on Friday.  I have been trying to get it to work properly since then. Maybe someone here can answer a couple of questions for me.

1. How do you set up scenarios? Its really confusing with all the random commands in the scenario page. Do i need to create a cheat sheet and learn every single one? Is there an easier way to tell it what to turn on and off? Currently, nothing works right except the volume.  :(

2. Why would my usb-uirt send the right code once, then stop working after that?

3. this is related to the scenarios again. is there an explicit way to tell it what to do and when?

 Believe when I say i have been pouring over the wiki, but the info there is really just not complete. hopefully someone here can explain to me how to get this working properly.

I assume that your usb-uirt is working for 'normal' IR remote control functions?

You are correct sir. My issues are the firing of the ir commands. I did get things worked out by solely using my receiver, but im still curious as to how linuxMCE decides what commands to send and where. Im very confused as to why a code would work once, then stop. i even looked into the timing and other stuff but no dice. maybe i crossed the wrong code somewhere? I also have a gyro mouse. Could that be causing a problem?

btw. im working with:

recently purchased usb-irt
xp MCE remote


thanks for any ideas

I just got mine today! Im actually using the TIVO ir emitter in conjunction with the usb-uirt. It is a single ir blaster  that splits into two so it can control the tv and receiver.

not sure if this is related, but I found this while trying to track this problem down on the interwebs.

http://ubuntuforums.org/archive/index.php/t-338191.html

maybe when the next update is fixed it wont happen? xine player is used locally in these situations so maybe its this library?

the dumb part of me wants to try and fix it manually. the smart part of me knows i would have to be lucky to...
hmm ;)

Users / Re: Cannot use absolute scrolling with Gyration mouse
« on: November 04, 2007, 02:33:21 am »
I just got a gyro mouse, the gyration version shown in the demo. The absolute scrolling doesn't work for me either. It sometimes comes on, and sometimes doesn't. I was looking for specific instructions on how to use it, but I guess it still a little buggy?

Users / Re: Media Library gone mad!
« on: October 28, 2007, 10:06:11 pm »
A little problem I've been having.

I tried to use the automated media cover art feature, but something happened and now it has mis labeled my entire collection. I've just re-installed the entire system (kubutu live cd & 2 install disc process) but the library seems to have not been erased. I suppose i should have re-formatted it as well eh?

Anyways, my question is, where is this media information stored. Someone mentioned that I could access the db locally, but how. Also, it seems to want to overrule me on data after I attempt to fix incorrect information. I can go through a long list and see them back the next day with the incorrect information.

Any Ideas?



login to Web Admin and use -> files & Media -> Media Files Sync

Thats how im trying to correct the files in the 1st place. it seems to be overwriting the changes im making via the media files sync.

This is not a fix but it should stop UpdateMedia from doing any more damage... in Web Admin - Files & Media -> Media Files Sync use the 'Update Media Daemon' tick box on the left of the screen to turn UpdateMedia off. Now at least you can investigate the problem without more damage occurring.

Thanks a lot. That suggestion help and now when I put the info in it doesn't overwrite.   ;D Was very frustrated for sure...

Users / Re: Howto: Make additional mouse-buttons behave as F6, F7, F8
« on: October 27, 2007, 01:07:01 am »
Ok, so I got everything installed. Some observations

-Original sources.list was quite bare. Restored from Backup.list and it worked.
  *was able to get xbindkeys and xautomation via apt get

  *making the config was easy. copying it to the named directory was bit harder due to it being outside the home directory. same for 'lmce_launch_manager.sh' do you have an easier way to do that? I eventually figured out the shell commands to copy them from the home directory back to usr/pluto/bin and /etc/ respectively.

  *restarted, but no dice.

do i need xbindkeysconfig?

-langston



Solved - Small note in your howto. the file created in etc/ is xbindkeysrc and the file it looks for on startup is xbindkeys. Once i changed that, it was working and im configuring the mouse buttons now!

2 people is good enough for adding to the wiki I think, as long as we clarify for noobies like me the best method for editing files as root.

Hey Chewi, thanks for the reply. I was actually going to add it to the wiki once I got it working. This is a really cool project and while im a relative noobie to linux as a whole, I figure I can at least help with organization and whatnot. Anyways, I have more time today so im planning to make another go.

Anyone figured out a solution for this yet? I would like to rip the dvd's but this is killing me. As a former sound mixer, sync issues are a killer for me.
