Users / Performers Pics
« on: January 29, 2008, 06:35:47 pm »
Hi Guys,

since I've read in the wiki a little about attaching files to attributes ( )

and more interesting, but also more difficult for me to understand, here in the forum, the threads about the graphical view of pluto_media,

I'm wondering why the pictures of, for example performers, could not be shown in the orbiter, when I sort my movies by performer. If the search is used, there is the picture, but in my opinion, it would be a lot more intuitional, if it were possible to "browse" through performers...

Maybe someone more clever than me, could tell me that it is possible and not that worse it looks at the moment...



Users / Sort options = long way to file?
« on: January 20, 2008, 07:46:58 am »
Hello again please forgive me, if this topic was already discussed. (If it was I just couldn't find it)

When navigating through my video files, I want to use for example the "sort by genre" option, then I get listed all my genres, so far so good, but now, when I choose a genre, no file appears, I'll have to click Options again and select Filename, and go, to make the files linked to this genre visible.

Maybe, I'm wrong, or it's my fault, but in my opinion, this makes no sense, since I've got more genres than can be displayed directly...

Feature requests & roadmap / Ambilight / A-R-E
« on: January 19, 2008, 08:35:56 am »
Me again, I just started using Linux, so I'm not able to be a great help in programming, (still working on getting my mediadatabase straight) but I found a website wich could be interesting for people who don't own a ambilight TV.

It is mentioned also an examplecode for linux:

Maybe interesting for someone... (or for more if someone can integrate this in Linuxmce)


Feature requests & roadmap / Media organisation
« on: January 17, 2008, 08:39:09 am »
Maybe it's too early for this request, but since I'm playing around with my Linuxmce now for about 5 weeks and it's still running, I came to the point where I start thinking about some cosmetics...

* Thinking about things like, I want to have the possibility to add pictures of the performers, wich should be shown, when using the search for a performer.

* Because I sometimes us my Lap (XP) wich can only run UI, as an Orbiter, there is the problem, that I've got many genres, wich hide under Video > Options, the "Viewed only" Button.

* I've already read the thread about the wish of many people to have the possibility to create playlists also for Videos, in a more comfortable way, than playing a vid, press file list, adding the next, press file list, adding the next..... and now moving on the orbiter to the first chosen one...

* the detailed view of the video files, where the studio, performers or the synopsis is shown, just cuts of for example the synopsis, if its more than 3 or 4 lines, maybe, it should be scrollable, also the small attributes , if there are more than 9 (only in my case, maybe?) the rest isn't visible.

Maybe some of you could answer, if I'm just dreaming or these could be nice gadgets for more people than me...

Users / Some Media files won't play on md
« on: January 02, 2008, 10:26:58 am »
Hi guys,

my problem is like I told in the subject,

some mediafiles won't play on my md (they play on the core/hybrid) they are in the same folder, so I can't find any answer to my prob. The onscreen Orbiter just tells me that the file was not found. I checked it via the console, it's there....

Same as one file is on this hd wich won't play neither on the md or the hybrid, but it's there (checked via the webadmin and the console)

Maybe someone could help me out of this.....



Feature requests & roadmap / Some kind of a sleeptimer for mds
« on: December 30, 2007, 08:35:54 am »
Hy guys,

I tried to find a solution on my own, but as you can see (I'm posting...), no luck...

The Question is:

Wouldn't it be nice, if a md shuts down after watching a movie or a playlist or at a certain time?

Maybe I'm just thinking in the wrong direction.....



Installation issues / PXE-Boot hangs up, looping......
« on: December 19, 2007, 04:07:16 pm »
Hy guys,

there's a big problem while trying to boot my first MD via PXE.

I got an Asus A7N8X-deluxe board, with two NICs onboard, when I connect one of them the md tries to  boot via PXE, everything seems to go its way, until, the line: filename tftpboot/pxelinux.0 comes up, for about 20 seconds and after this.
After this, the last block written:

IP-Config eth0 complete (from
adr:  broadcast:  netmask:
gateway:  dns0: dns1:
rootserver: rootpath: filename tftpboot/pxelinux.0

is repeated about hours in a really fast way.....

I already tried to setup a diskless client in the webadmin first, wich also causes no effect.

Changing the NIC = the same problem....

looking forward for some help.......
