Hi all

probably I'm missing something obvious ... nevertheless I followed the link but found nothing (a page with a download category called LMCE, with nothing inside)

Can anyone point me in the proper direction?



click on LMCE. Sorry its not more obvious, i just only have one thing to download at the moment.

thanks for effort. I really like it. It seems quite promising also to replace general media interface.

I haven't found Filename sorting possibility - is it somewhere under different name or .. ?

I'm quite used to directory structure browsing...

Thanks again,



Hey Bulek,

Browsing by file is still on the way as im learning the code as i go along. Kind of a tutorial from hell. I do, however realize the need for this because if a file is missing an attribute,  how are you supposed to find it? Im working on the browse by file part at the moment, so you hopefully wont have to wait too much longer.

there have been some suggestions that I do it in er java. thing is, i know nothing about java. so if anyone has any tips, suggestions, pointers, etc that would get me there it would be appreciated.

basically, i dont care what language its in as long as:

-you can drag files to their destination
-you can add cover art the same way
-can update attributes in that manner too

I only have the 1st done, but the rest will be coming soon with this method. Im learning so i dont think i mind doing it twice, but java is completely foreign, to me at least.

PS. i know something about it bugged you. tell me :)

Hey all,

So im making a new playlist editor. And I would like the community's input.

This started when LON22 created the batch assign script. I liked it because it let me organize the media a little bit faster than go through every single file.

Which brings us to the playlist editor. I wanted to add some functionality to it as well as make it run just a little faster.

blah blah blah.

The 1st incarnation is done* and I was looking on some input from the community on a couple things:

  • Colors and layout. I am not a graphic designer. Nor do I claim to be. So if any suggestions on the look and feel would be awesome.  My main goal was to get it working first, make it pretty second.
  • Coding. This isnt as important right now but by the time this is done, it will need to be added into the webadmin so its organized with the rest webadmin. Problem is, im having some difficulty there, so if anyone has any suggestions, please let me know.

I dont see how to add a file here so i'll just post the link to where it is. The instructions are on that page, but i'll say them here too.

   1. Copy into the /var/www/  directory
   2. Unzip
   3. Point browser to the directory on your core. EX: http://dcerouter/DDMB/
   4. All files need to be in the same folder.
   5. After that,  flame me for bad coding.  :P

Thats about it.

Note: This should'nt break your system or existing playlists. If anything, there may be an issue with the playlist ordering. If you recieve an error, its because it was fixing something in the background. Performing the same action that gave an error should would the second time because any issues with playlist order will have been fixed. There is one error that i have yet to track down which involves funky characters in the filename. Nothing breaks, just tells you there was an error.

Also, it was updated on 4-16-08, minor issue with adding playlists.


Users / Re: Accidently told LMCE to ignore my usb hdd
« on: April 11, 2008, 06:07:50 am »
you should be able to to this via the webadmin...

-login to the webadmin

- using TOP navigation, goto advanced -dropdown list--->configration --drop down list----> unknown devices.

-this is the fun part. figure out which device is your usb HD and click 'unlock'. that should do it.

-someone correct me if im wrong here, but a clue to finding which one is your USB HD in the sea of devices is the one without a network address. that a guess tho, but hopefully it helps you narrow it down.

It was definitely the Orbiter...
I changed the timeout from 600,600 to a greater value and after a quick router reload it worked.
By the way, why 2 values?

Anyway, thanks both of you for your precious hints!

one of the values is for the display, and the other is if you are using the 'computing' function to watch a video on the web, it prevents the screen saver  from popping up. its not just for video but that just an example. it controls the amount of time before the photo ss kicks in.

i think what is happening here is the orbiter timeout, located in the orbiters section of 'devices' in the webadmin. There is a specific setting on that page called 'Seconds before power off  '. That is where you can specify the timeout. Also, there is a similar option to adjust the screen saver, say for watching online videos and other media that lmce cant tell is running.

hope this helps

connecting to the service port when its not explicitly stated that it is a communications can lead to you entire tv being fried. be carefully with that and I would check on the visio forums.

go back to computing, you will see and option for 'remote'. click that and presto changeo, you existing firefox session should pop back onto the screen.

i figured this out when the screensaver would interrupt whatever streaming video i was watching. NOTE: doesnt seem to know there was still a session if you reload the router.

A further question about the UIRT - how many devices can I control at the same time with it?

I have a sky-box and amplifier I wish to control via ir (as they lack rs-232 ports) will one UIRT box be able to control both?

yes it should. The KEY part of it controlling both is having a dual IR blaster. Basically, its an IR blaster that plugs into the one port on the rear of the USB_UIRT and then splits into two separate ir blasters at the end.

EX: my usb_uirt has a re-purposed tivo ir blaster (it splits into two) and i use that to control my TV and receiver all with just the one usb_uirt.

Woo Hoo!! Kir sent me a fix overnight for Media_Plugin, I installed it this morning and fantastic, it has fixed the Genre sort (filter) issue. Now when I click on one of the Genre "tiles", all the appropriate media is behind it! Very happy now - thanks Kir! Bit disturbing what genres of music I actually have! Just a process of going through and either correcting the meta-data or deleting the file! (hip-hop? urgh!)

Oops, EDIT: just realised it was Ender that sent me the binary...

will this be released as an update once its tested out?

Users / Re: x10 CM11A support is now fixed!
« on: March 05, 2008, 04:36:53 am »
nswint -

I didn't do the precompiled modules (I was involved in patching the source)
However, I did upgrade to beta 4 myself and the x10 support did make it in. If I were you, I'd go that route - the torrent actaully went pretty fast for me.

Also, as pointed out in this thread, there is a bug in the web admin where you can test the x10 devices. This has been filed in mantis.

I just installed the beta4 today, yet im still getting the checksum error. Any ideas?

So that didnt go so smoothly, but then I should have asked:

-is this for the beta only? i'm on 0704

-i do have the i386 version installed

the two error messages i noticed were

'get orbiter status failed'
'orbiter generation failed!'

but, since i made the backups as per the instructions, i restored it and now the screen is back up. sans all my lights though.

anyone have any thoughts on this?
