Users / MediaMVP (Hauppauge) up and running
« on: January 07, 2009, 11:06:15 am »
I have been doing some stuff lately with the mediamvp from Hauppauge to get it running on LMCE. And it does, has only one drawback: everytime a new system (MD etc) is added to the system, the dhcp3.conf file is overwritten so you have to put in your configuration again manually. As my system only changes about once a week  ::) it will stay a simple job.

This is what my dhcp3.conf (in /etc/dhcp3) looks like:

# option definitions common to all supported networks...
#option domain-name "";
#option domain-name-servers;
option domain-name-servers;

option routers;
option subnet-mask;

# lease IPs for 1 day, maximum 1 week
default-lease-time 86400;
max-lease-time 604800;

allow booting;
allow bootp;

option space pxelinux;
option pxelinux.magic code 208 = string;
option pxelinux.configfile code 209 = text;
option pxelinux.pathprefix code 210 = text;
option pxelinux.reboottime code 211 = unsigned integer 32;

subnet netmask {
   filename "/tftpboot/pxelinux.0";
   option pxelinux.reboottime = 30;

   default-lease-time 86400;
   max-lease-time 604800;
   pool {
       allow unknown-clients;

# PXE booting machines
group {
   filename "/tftpboot/pxelinux.0";
   option pxelinux.reboottime = 30;

   # Keuken MD (102)
   host moon102 { hardware ethernet 00:11:2F:E3:2A:0A; fixed-address; }
   # Woonkamer MD (222)
   host moon222 { hardware ethernet 00:18:F3:75:26:C2; fixed-address; }
   # Generic PC as MD (250)
   host moon250 { hardware ethernet 00:15:60:58:D0:3C; fixed-address; }
   # MediaMVP
   host mvp {
           hardware ethernet 00:0d:fe:00:97:41;
           filename "/tftpboot/dongle.bin.mvpmc-20080110";}


# regular machines
group {

after this you have to add the files for the MVP to the /tftpboot directory:


i have added the config file only as the bin file containing the image is too big (3.5 Mb). If anybody likes to receive just pm me and I'll send it by email.

After that you should be able to boot the mediamvp and enjoy watching your recordings and live tv.

When I am fully finished exploring the ins and outs i will put the info into the wiki.



Edit: this will only work for the H1 models, still working on the H3 (sticker at the back will show which model it is)

Users / Mythweb - recorded programs shows deleted tv shows
« on: November 25, 2008, 08:51:06 pm »
When watching recordings I normally tend to delete the shows after watching (which is a bit of a pain  ;D , because after the show you have to go back to 1) video 2) filter on tv shows 3) find which show out of the 45 CSI's I watched and then 4) delete.)

I noticed however that these shows still show in the mythweb page for recorded shows  :'( . When selecting one i get: "1008_20081123001000.mpg does not exist in the recordings directory." which does not happen for the not deleted show.

Additional I cannot delete them using the Mythweb interface  >:( . The only way to get rid of them is deleting the record out of the database by hand.

Either I am doing something wrong or the system is screwed. Searching on the forum did not reveal any answer so far, anybody got a clue  ??? ?



Users / PDA Orbiter UI missing icons
« on: November 18, 2008, 02:48:13 pm »
Ok, I give up. Using my Ipaq 2210 i cannot filter on stuff i can in any other ui (Video,Options). Normally you can select TVShows, Movies and so on, but all of those buttons are missing. So clearly I am missing something. Done my bit of searching on the forums and wikis but still no clue. Is there an updated version of the ui somewhere?

Hi all,

I have had a problem with my motherboard that when I used UI2 my sound was very bad. It sounded like crackling and with a bit of an echo. Using the most simple UI I did not have the problem.

My solution:

Check your type of soundcard via lspci...

Then find your soundcard in the next file

linuxmce@dcerouter:~$ zless /usr/share/doc/alsa-base/driver/ALSA-Configuration.txt.gz

For my specific card is says:


 Module snd-hda-intel

    Module for Intel HD Audio (ICH6, ICH6M, ESB2, ICH7, ICH8),
                ATI SB450, SB600, RS600,
                VIA VT8251/VT8237A,
                SIS966, ULI M5461

    model       - force the model name
    position_fix - Fix DMA pointer (0 = auto, 1 = none, 2 = POSBUF, 3 = FIFO siz
    probe_mask  - Bitmask to probe codecs (default = -1, meaning all slots)
    single_cmd  - Use single immediate commands to communicate with
                codecs (for debugging only)
    enable_msi  - Enable Message Signaled Interrupt (MSI) (default = off)

    This module supports one card and autoprobe.

    Each codec may have a model table for different configurations.
    If your machine isn't listed there, the default (usually minimal)
    configuration is set up.  You can pass "model=<name>" option to
    specify a certain model in such a case.  There are different
    models depending on the codec chip.

          Model name    Description
          ----------    -----------
          3stack        3-jack in back and a headphone out
          3stack-digout 3-jack in back, a HP out and a SPDIF out
          5stack        5-jack in back, 2-jack in front
          5stack-digout 5-jack in back, 2-jack in front, a SPDIF out
          6stack        6-jack in back, 2-jack in front
          6stack-digout 6-jack with a SPDIF out
          w810          3-jack
          z71v          3-jack (HP shared SPDIF)
          asus          3-jack (ASUS Mobo)
          asus-w1v      ASUS W1V
          asus-dig      ASUS with SPDIF out
          asus-dig2     ASUS with SPDIF out (using GPIO2)
          uniwill       3-jack
          fujitsu       Fujitsu Laptops (Pi1536)
          F1734         2-jack


Adding "options snd-hda-intel position_fix=1 model=3stack" at the end of /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base solved my problem after a reboot of the MD.

Maybe somebody is helped with this... ::)

Users / Having a go at LinuxMCE on xen
« on: September 13, 2008, 05:34:49 pm »
My thought:

As I have a number of website running of Xen, sharing SMB to local PC's and being fed up with Vista not coming out of hibernate I was willing to give a DomU construction a go. So let me tell you about that in this thread. First of all my xen-tools script statement:

xen-create-image --hostname=mediaserver --size=25Gb --swap=4Gb --ide \
--ip= --netmask= --gateway= --force \
--dir=/virtualmachines --memory=1024Mb --arch=amd64 --kernel=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.24-19-xen \
--initrd=/boot/initrd.img-2.6.24-19-xen --install-method=debootstrap --dist=gutsy \
--mirror= --passwd

Users / LMCE on Xen (FC 7): How to use pciback
« on: December 28, 2007, 10:30:24 pm »
Hi guys,

have been fooling around with LCME for the past two months or so, but I am getting close to a working system  ;D Now that audio and video is working on the MD's I would like to add the PVR card (Hauppauge PVR 150) to the DomU. I know I have to use pciback to free the assignment of the card to Dom0 but all my "googling" could not resolve the issue that pciback is not present in my Xen kernel. Not being a complete Tux guru I hope someone is around and has done this before  ::)
If you need any further info pleaze let me know....



Users / Display scrolling to the left making it hard to select buttons
« on: December 01, 2007, 08:15:27 pm »
Hi guys,

after having loads of fun installing LMCE in all kinds of ways, trying to the the hang of the system, I have stumbled on a thing I have not been able to resolve upto now. Infrequent the picture on my monitor starts shifting to the left, almost like folding around the screen. As my English is not perfect, trying to find this behaviour on the forum and on Google has not resulted in a resolution. So please anybody got a clue, I'm getting tired of rebooting the router about every 20 minutes to get my screen back....

Users / LinuxMCE and Thin Clients
« on: November 29, 2007, 11:28:01 pm »

ive just worked my way into installing LinuxMCE. It finally runs :-) as domu on xen. Mainly I did this to save power. No my question is regarding the same: is it possible to use thin clients as MD's? I've had a go with a HP T5525 (Via 800 Mhz, 128 Mb) but the system is slow as ..... Only music will play but video hangs the system. Now I am not sure if bad performance is caused by putting the core on xen, or a Via 800 Mhz proc not doing the job. Anybody any experience?
