Just forget it. As I mentioned in a different thread: We talked on LinuxTag 2008 with a project that tried to accomplish synchronized playback of audio using multiple computers. They did not succeed.

The *only* option at the moment is they it had always been done, long wires, and a single source.

I assume you are using i386? And you are trying the USB UIRT without an IR extension dongle?

I prefer a clean  solution as well, but would not wire everything to a central place. one of the beauties of LinuxMCE is, that all you need to bring to the TV is the Ethernet cable. Plug a slim MD, like the eee box, on the back of the TV and be done with it.

allright then;-) Managed to emty an 250GB hdd, and use this as dedicated core. Then make the 1TB hdd to store the media files :o

Great idea!

What is this file:
To do so we have to create a single file
Those it mean the /pluto.conf?

I don't know out of the top of my head. What do the commands in the wiki say?

2. The notion:
"We need fool the LinuxMCE Installer into believing we already have a LinuxMCE installation. To do so we have to create a single file. If you are using the LinuxMCE DVD, it has created the /media/target directory to use below"
What do I need to do, in order to "fool" the LinuxMCE Installer. I need a step by step instructions here as well. :P

Just read the whole article

Yes. The difference between a core and a hybrid is the running of the media director on the hybrid. Also, you do not need to run any X on a core only, afaik.

Apart from totallymaxed last post, which I 100% support let me add one small little tid bit of information.

Whenever someone comes into IRC and asks about how LinuxMCE does various things, and why it is not doing stuff in a specific way, I ask the person, if all they want is a media center.  In my humble opinion, if all you want is a media center, there are systems and projects out there, that are more forgiving in the choice of hardware and might give you more of what you are looking for. And I am not thinking about commercial options, but lots of other free software out there. Heck, if you are in DVB-x land, you might be happy with VDR alone, as it plays DVDs, has support for USB sticks (iirc), and does TV.

Is your MAC address in the MAC address range of the 7960 template?

do you already have device templates for the Gigasets (0710 or 0810)?

last time i've checked the IR solutions were not able to power the ps3 on or off..

br, Hari

True enough with the one I posted above.  It was the easy one to find.  Here's the better solution that includes the power on/off feature:;jsessionid=F8A23987DAE18522FC56CA45C9B94D62.qscstrfrnt03?productId=6

The URL you posted points to a device which allows to power off the PS3,
Note: This model will not Power ON the PS3

however, the does support power on, for the amount of money, hari pointed out.

I'm seeing the same thing.  Thanks for explaining the cause.  I won't bother with it, then.  (probably at least half my music has non-ASCII characters)

It is not about non-ASCII characters. It is about tags in the MP3s with a wrong character sets. I have now cleaned up my stuff, and do see all my music, including those with german Umlauts, french accents (or how ever they are called).

I'll rephrase: For whom are you developing for? What is the nature of your customer?

I am developing for MYSELF. And I hope, other people like what I develop. And if someone has some things they like, I think about these things. And if I can, I implement them, if I feel like it. That's the nature of unpaid open source software. I am spending most of my waking hours for LMCE in one way or another. I do it, because I love doing it. Not because I need to feed a market, or have something for a customer.
