You might want to consider the Hush box a Media Director and utilize something else as the core. Hard disk make noise, so for the core noise is not that much of an issue. For the media director on the other hand, it has to be silent.

I have good success with a bare bone from http://www.ichbinleise.de. They use hfx cases and build a computer for your liking into it. Apart from some issues with the onboard NIC of the ASUS P5K everything is working very nice.

Okay, fixed.

The problem was, my media director did not have access to the internet during the initial MD generation. Therefore a couple of packages where not installed. Thanks to hari for the hint regarding pluto-generic-serial.

For the future, make sure, you lmce installation has a connection to the internet. Otherwise bad things might happen.

I have looked into the logfiles and have then the following snippet:
Code: [Select]
LaunchManager.log:05    02/22/08 10:49:09.577           Starting device 73 Pioneer Kuro <0xb68568d0>
LaunchManager.log:05    02/22/08 10:49:09.577           Not starting device 73 Pioneer Kuro - binary is not found, probably it is in the middle of installation <0xb68568d0>

What is going on here? What binary is it looking for? Is it possible, that the MD is trying to download something of the internet, that it can't do right now, as no internet is available? The MD has been regenerated, and not been connected to the net!?

Hello,

I am trying to control various AV equipment via RS-232. Using TestSerialPort works just fine with the following command:
Code: [Select]
/usr/pluto/bin/TestSerialPort -p /dev/ttyS0 -P N81 -t "SB\r" -s "SB" -i 3 -b 9600 && echo Success

Returns "Success" and turns the receiver off. How ever, creating a new AV device and filling in the code for OFF
Code: [Select]
<$"SB\r"$>does not work, i get no result on the receiver and the receiver stays on when I press TEST on the codes screen.

Browsing thru the web administration I found the status of this device to be **RUN_GET_IR**. Does this have anything to do with my problem?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated in the quest to fix this problem.

Thanks

I'm getting another drive in the next few days. As soon as things progress I will let you know.

I do not see that message. (I just found that information in the wiki).

So, to sum it up (as a reference for the future): If your receiver is not in the list, don't bother trying setting it up with the Media Player Wizard. At least in 0710b3. It won't work. Use the web admin afterwards.

Hello,

during the setup wizard I want to select a receiver which is being controlled via IR. It is not in the list, so I select "Model isn't on the list". However, nothing happens. I type a new name, click on "Model isn't on the list". Still nothing happens.

Where am I doing something wrong?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I am trying to learn the codes of a new remote via USB UIRT. But no codes are being received.

Is the USB-UIRT learning functionality working in 0710b3? If yes, any hint what I might do wrong (crystal ball anyone)?

Thanks

Well, watching a DVD on  a (fairly) large screen really shows differences between a DVD rip on a regular single layer DVD disk, and the original. I want the best possible picture quality while watching a movie in my home theater. Watching on a regular TV set does not show much difference, but once to you go into larger sized screens you see a difference. And it annoys the hell out of me.

So, by going down from 3-8GB of data to a 4GB movie, I save about 1€. I am willing to pay this price to get the best quality possible.

YMMV.

Cool. My installation already had a USB-UIRT and the PVR2. Once everything is settled, I can use either to control IR equipment.

Thanks for the info.

I actually didn't think I'd be able to use Blu-ray at all for a while.  The way this thread was heading I thought it might be possible to get the video transcoded to something reasonable sized for use in a library.  Hearing that it 0710 can play Blu-ray movies is great.  If I could rip a movie then let a transcode run for several hours I'd consider making taking the plunge.  I'm actually much more interested in the ability to transcode and store than using a MD as a DVD player.  Whether or not it can play without ripping first is far less important as I almost never do this anyway.  I buy movies, rip/transcode them, then play them via MythTV at some later date.  If there is no way to do this with linuxMCE/Blu-ray right now, no big deal.  I can wait until the functionality fits my needs.

Why do you want to transcode a blu ray? Any kind of transcoding (that saves space) will reduce picture quality. Isn't one of the reasons to buy Blu Ray or HD-DVD to have the best picture quality available? With disk space getting so cheap these days (about 24€ct a Gig), I don't see a need to sacrifice picture quality at all.

What I did to enable a none working NIC was, to modify /etc/initramfs-tools-interactor/modules and add the required module. Have a look at the wiki entrance. http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/ASUS_P5K. I still have to update the steps for the second boot, where it starts another initrd.img.

Installation issues / VDR and n800 - No control
« on: February 07, 2008, 08:39:28 pm »
Hello,

I am trying to utilize an Nokia n800 as a remote for LMCE. Unfortunately, it does not seem to work within the VDR part of LMCE. I see a remote, but NONE of the keys on the display of the n800 work. Anyone else experiencing the same problem? Am I doing something wrong?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
