Users / Controlling a DLNA DMR (Renderer)
« on: September 20, 2011, 09:17:20 pm »
My livingroom TV (Samsung UE55C8700) supports something called DLNA DMR (Digital Media Renderer). This means it can play anything Windows "Play To" can through at it, for Kubuntu same goes for apps like Rygel.

So I have the media, either via MediaTomb or Myth, I have the player (Samsung TV) and at this moment a MD to glue it together. What are the chances of the orbiter/core controlling the TV directly using DLNA/PNP, cutting out the MD?

As far as I can find in the forum, Dianemo already offers simular, any expectation it will be ported into LMCE or something comparable will be available? If I could write the software myself I would do just that but getting the TV to play already took me ages..... ;D

That would be great if you could send me (or post) the configs that you have.  I'm running it through the DVI interface right now, and would love to get HDMI up and running.

Thanks!

First of all - follow the wiki. I have been fighting with these thingies for some time and the wiki contains the steps I had to take to get a working system.  Especially the step were you have to press 3 when you know for sure AVWizard is running. And most of all "Give it some time". Its not like u press 3 and within a millisecond its there....

If it works you'll end up with a config like beneath

« on: September 19, 2011, 12:15:38 pm »
I have 4 of the nt330i's running as MD's and they work great.  There were some issues with the NIC drivers, but the wiki does a great job walking you through that.  I'm going to put up a new wiki with my complete build when I figure out how to add a wiki page (and get some time)..  HD video works great, but I suggest loading them up with memory.  I've got 2Gb of memory in them now, and it uses all of it when I'm playing a movie.  Fan runs all the time basically, but it's not that loud (especially compared to a normal sized pc).  Overall, I'm very happy with my set up using the Foxconn's and will buy another when I get the need.  Only outstanding issue I've got is HDMI sound, but I'll figure it out eventually.  I see others using XBMC have had similar issues, so it's a common problem.

I have had some trouble getting sound up via HDMI but its running. If I can give a hand with printout of setting and so, let me know.

It sounds like this unit is 100% functional after installing the Atheros NIC driver, setting the nomsi kernel option, and enabling WOL in the BIOS.  Can someone who owns one confirm that?  There were some HD playback issues mentioned previously, and I don't see a definitive resolution to those in this thread.

Also, how loud is the fan in this thing?

I can confirm that the unit is functioning 100% and HD playback does not give me any issues.

The fan, well, its not soundless so to say ;-) but bearable...

if somebody is interested in the initrd and vmlinuz files to overcome the Atheros driver stuff pm me and I'll send over the files.

Users / 08.10: Mythtv startup speed
« on: September 12, 2011, 04:29:09 pm »
Hi all,

Since about 2 weeks I have IPTV up and running. I am using Mythtv more then ever before but have also seen the dark side of things. Mythtv takes its time to start live TV. It takes about 10-20 seconds to get it up and running. Is there anything I can do to speed up the whole process?

I got tired of copying the iptables part into a terminal everytime something changed on the dcerouter firewall, so as a temporary measure i added the rules to the end of /usr/pluto/bin/Network_Firewall.sh. This untill I find out how to put them in through the webinterface.

Users / Asterisk & CallerID
« on: September 06, 2011, 08:47:35 pm »
Hi all,

for the last week I am having some trouble with the incoming caller ID on Asterisk; the caller ID is more or less always my own number. Although I first blamed my provider as they had some capacity problems and in the process screwed my numbers routing in their PABX, after the latter was restored my problem still was not gone. When digging a bit deeper in my router (tcmpdump) and public interface of DCErouter it showed on both occasions the right CallerID comes in but all I can find in the loggings of Asterisk is my own number. The funny thing is it does not happen all the time, just 9 out of 10 times.... It started appearing at the end of August and has been there ever since.

So maybe someone can give me some advice on what else I can check?

TIA

Please remember that the interfaces file gets overwritten from the web admins network page.

Yep, so I have to remind finding this thread when things go tits up.

Bulek,

I get the stream on the other computers within the network using udpxy on my router (WNDR 3700)

Hi all,

since some time I have FTTH with unencrypted IPTV. After a lot of hassle I now have the IP streams available on my router (igmpproxy and udpx). When connected directly to my router my laptop is able to show the different tv channels through multicast and udpxy (vlc)
Now I want mythtv to be able to tune into the multicast stream but I am having a hard time to get that going. Anybody has any experience how to set up routing and firewall to pass multicast traffic as http streams (udpxy) are not supported in mythtv.

Users / Re: Video on MD, sound through Squeezebox
« on: August 08, 2011, 02:12:51 pm »
Posde,

thanks for thinking with me, the option you mention however is problematic for me as the TV is mounted on the wall and the pipe leading up to it is too full.
I know for a fact that it is possible to stream audio as well as video to 2 or more MD's at the same time, I was thinking along that way  ;D

Thanks,

Users / Video on MD, sound through Squeezebox
« on: August 08, 2011, 11:32:41 am »
Hi all,

In my kitchen I have a MD connected to a Samsung LCD TV but the sound coming from the TV is very poor. In the same kitchen I have a Squeezebox as well. Now I am wondering if it is possible to pipe the audio of the MD through the Squeezbox. I have tried using the Connection Wizard, but both have only outputs so I can't connect the output of the MD to an input on the Squeezebox. Anybody a clue how to get this running or is it maybe not possible...
