Developers / Re: [Testers?] Suspend/Resume MDs....
« on: March 10, 2009, 10:35:41 pm »
Great, OK, so focusing on suspend to disk, what do you think we need to do to add this into 0810? Are we confident enough of all the config and script files working on most platforms that this can be just static files added to the installation process? Also, has s2ram been added back into hibernate/uswsusp in 0810 or do we need to compile a version (like we did manually) and add it to the build?

Especially for MDs, I do not think focusing on suspend to disk is such a grand idea. All my MDs are (going to be) diskless.

dchurch24,

install lmce and use it as your backend and frontend. lmce does not support external MythTV backends.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Media Sharing

Donpaul,

why don't you implement it, and let us all know, how good it works.

I wish I could, or even had the skillset to. I can of course implement the linux portion, but the only coding I can do is perl and sh.

Donpaul,

that is all that is needed to implement your suggestion. Setup some vpn, setup up the remote servers in your local install, and you should be able to do what you suggested, i.e. move files between servers. Whether or not you will find this usable is another thing. I for one think that the connection speed WILL be the limiting factor.

Why don't you guys talk about actually how to integrate it into the system, instead of duct taping it on?

Come on guys, stop thinking like typical Linux users.

Wouldn't one core detect and add the samba share from another core if they are on the same network? Then add a Copy file to other directory in the media files sync web page (instead of only a move file to other directory). We could browse the remote share and copy media to local disk. That may be the easiest way to integrate it into the system.

Donpaul,

why don't you implement it, and let us all know, how good it works.

I had wuarchive nfs mounted on my machines at home in the early 1990s.

I did not have a home, so I had it nfs mounted at work

Oh, welcome to the club of people who lost work, because they did not backup.

The dhcpd.conf file is overwritten by PlutoDHCP. Either on each start or on each reload, I am not sure.

I don't think that is true.

Colinjones, you are correct. The dhcpd.conf is overwritten when
  • A new diskless MD is setup
  • A GC-100 is installed

I looked at PlutoHome back in 2005-06 iirc but could not get it to work.

But remembered the cool flash presentation.

ffwd to Oct-Nov 2007 - A friend of mine wanted a small distributed media system. Since then, I have spend nearly 70% of my waking hours, working, fixing, playing with lmce

hmmm... the pnp system should identify it as the "same" MD based on MAC address when it is triggered by the DHCP plugin... but you might want to edit /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf and update the MAC address there as well, that should really make LMCE see this as exactly the same device...

The dhcpd.conf file is overwritten by PlutoDHCP. Either on each start or on each reload, I am not sure.

« on: March 06, 2009, 11:15:45 pm »
It is not possible at the moment. Video can only be played back on a media director. Having said that, there are portable touch computers which can double as Orbiter and Media Director.

just hoping to get the audio screen to load faster).

I have found that there is no speed difference on my audio screen, between using my n810 (via Wifi) and the on-screen orbiter.

You need to have access to the panel via RS-232 or TCP/IP and get the programmers manual, to control stuff. A (I assume Windows) DLL won't help you much.

Thanks for finding this.

The problem happens because one of your media events is missing a media type.

I have fixed this for 0810. To fix your problem, you have to modify your media scenario on the My Scenario page in the web. On the left hand side, click on Show Devices tree (at the bottom of the screen), and then on My Scenarios at the bottom of the screen. Browse thru your media scenarios, and fix the missing MediaType entry.
