Nice find.

Although I still prefer the n800 as a remote.

As a keyboard times when the MD is hanging it is quite nice.

Developers / Re: DVB Card support in LinuxMCE-0710
« on: January 12, 2008, 04:45:44 pm »
Hello Andrew,

I am using Technotrend 1500-S cards. A budget DVB-S card working out of the box for Debian 4.0 (with kernel 2.6.18-5), so should not cause any kind of a problem. Another one I recently acquired is a Technotrend 1500-C card. Unfortunately, I can't test it at the moment, due to lack of cable in my house.

I have another DVB-S card, which I can't get to work at all. It is a TechniSat SkyStar 2 TV, a budget card DVB-S. The name is misleading, as it uses a different design, than previous SkyStar 2s :-(. It seems the SkyStar 2 with a metal box are working, the once without a metal box are not supported under Linux at the moment. At least according to the DVB wiki.

Hope this information helps.

Maybe nobody can really answer your questions. Especially with regards to HD content, I am not sure too many people have experience with this.

Apart from that, browse the Wiki. It will cost you about 2-3 days, after that you will be in a much better position to ask questions.

Start with http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Hardware, if you want to dive into the hardware side of things. However, it might make more sense to start at the beginning and really invest some time reading.

Not that I can answer all your questions (most of them you can find answered on the forum), but this is one, I can answer
Some of the MD will have either a capture card or a satellite card, will it be good to have a satellite or capture card on the Core??

I would put all the capture and/or TV cards into the core. That is where they are suppose to life, and be utilized by whomever on the network want to use them.

Thanks Hari.

The quality is good enough for me.

BTW: What version ipaq is that?

Hari,

that picture is very helpful. Do you mind if I put it in the Wiki?

Maybe other people would like to add pictures of their mobile orbiters as well, so people get a feeling for size and readability.

Hi Jason,

thanks will fix.
I've never submitted anything in Mantis and am new to this whole deal so I apologize if I stepped on any toes.

And that mantis was my first entry into the LinuxMCE mantis :)

Thanks for your thoughts.

Especially the use of the orbiter without the TV was a surprise for my visitor. It is very nice to just scroll thru DVDs and CDs to find what one wants to look and after deciding on it, start what ever is necessary with a single click. If I'd have to pick two things I like best about Pluto / LinuxMCE, it would be scrolling thru DVD/CD selection from remote, and Follow Me of the media.

Thanks Cirion.

Yesterday I had someone over and I gave him the N800. He really like the size and feel. However, he was a little bit concerned about the speed and the screen size.

How do you like the performance of the Windows Mobile based orbiter?

Users / Re: Cool My 0710 MD is running 64 bit
« on: January 10, 2008, 05:57:14 pm »
The ATI drivers are still not performing as well as nVidia's and cause no end of problems currently. We do not build any hardware products with ATI graphics because of this... its a shame as the underlying hardware is certainly more than upto the job... its the drivers.
It really is a shame. The card is in my home cinema PC regularly running Vista Ultimate. It was just a test to see how easy one can setup an additional MD. Apart from the initial problem with the sound, everything else was easy.

BTW: Do you see a difference in the quality of the ATI drivers between the 32bit and the 64bit version?

Quote
Currently I would suggest going to an nVidia based card - 6100 (onboard chip), 6150 (onboard chip), 6200 or 7300

Thanks for that info. I already defined the 6200 as a requirement for a new MD and a new Hybrid.

Anyone has a screen shot of the orbiters running on a Windows Mobile? Or is the orbiter identical to the N8x0 and the regular Windows orbiter?

Hello 1audio,
 
The benefit of the 64 bit OS shows in very demanding applications like H.264 HD. A place where you need every advantage.

Would you might sending links for any benchmarks and or tests outlining the difference between H.264 decoding running 32bit vs. 64bit? It is my understanding, that any kind of decoding would foremost benefit from multi-threading, and only places where huge amounts of memory (more memory, than 32bit can easily address) need to be worked with, a 64bit system has advantages.

« on: January 10, 2008, 11:34:07 am »
maybe it's a wee bit overkill..but the gc100 works well :-P

:) This must be like starting a V8 to drive 300ft to the next p.o.

I will go with the PCIe route for everything I can foresee happening in the next 12 month. If I need more, I will go with the USB2Serial adapters.

rgds and thx

As I am creating a new system, it really is not much of a point. Any of the E6xxx Core2Duo should be sufficient. But, if you have a current system and see problems, which you pinpoint to missing CPU power, 8-10% may be helpful for you. I'd be very interested to hear your findings, as soon as you get a chance to try it out.

All tests I have done so far do not show an increase in speed for most applications, but those tests are NOT LMCE related, which is my reason for being interested in real-life experience.
