Hello,

some additional information regarding the problem. I have found more DVDs with a problem. There seem to be a fairly new copy protection scheme in place, used by some of the german DVD producers. Details can be found here http://www.x-protect.com/, and search on http://forum.doom9.org for "Das Parfum" or x-protect reveals some more information.

Don't you just love it, if you buy a generic standardized inexpensive product, like a DVD for around 10€, take it home, just to find out, it will not play on your Linux system, nor on your Windows systems with older versions of WinDVD. NOT! >:(

Is the upshot of that status that while MPlayer can play, say, Blu-Ray discs mounted in an LMCE Blu-Ray drive on a display connected locally to that LMCE drive's host, that is the full extent of HD support?

It is my understanding, you can not play any encrypted BluRay or HD-DVD on LMCE. Period.

Ie. the BD cannot be copied to an image file on a harddrive  (even remaining encrypted) and played from there, and neither BD nor an image can be played across the network?

I do not know, if you can COPY the encrypted media to the PC, as I do not have a BlueRay drive in my PC.

Quote
Or does that status actually mean that while MPlayer can in theory play a BD (disc or maybe image file), until someone delivers a BD decrypter (a la DeCSS for SD DVDs), there is no way to watch a BD movie with LMCE?

This is my understanding. As long as there is encryption, you can not play BD or HD-DVD under Linux. A better place to look for information might be the doom9.org forum.

What's the best platform for the storage?...NFS?...Jbod (local disk)?...or Samba/Cifs?

For a comparison, look here http://www.javvin.com/NFSdoc/nfsperformance.html, and to broaden your choice even more, look at iSCSI, which might be an even better choice, if you want to have network connected storage http://www.technomagesinc.com/papers/ip_paper.html

Apart from that, local storage is ALWAYS fastest.

gazlang,

I assume you want to view BluRay and/or HD-DVD movies on your LMCE, right?

As far as I understand the current situation, LMCE is utilizing MPlayer as the engine to play the HD contents. However, I do not know of ANY system right now, capable of directly decrypting the copy protection scheme of BluRay and/or HD-DVD available under Linux.

The MPlayer homepage (http://www.mplayerhq.hu) has some small note on this

Quote
Support for VC-1 in MPEG-TS and MPEG-PS will make many HDTV streams work. Blu-ray or HD-DVD playback is not possible yet, but MPlayer can play the EVO files after they have been decrypted.

This might change in the future, but I would not hold my breath (I have small lung capacity :-))

Some more information.

I have tried numerous DVDs. All of them play just fine. BUT, a lot have problems when I try to copy them to the Core.  I have tried various tools available and all exhibit the same kind of problem. After 7-8% of the DVD I get read errors.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem? I will try another drive, but doubt that it will help.

Any and help is greatly appreciated

Users / Re: Bug with ignore command OFF in GSD interface
« on: January 07, 2008, 10:40:03 am »
Hello,

I think, the command should be sent, no matter what the computer think its internal state is. Especially with X-10 it is not guaranteed that a command is executed correct. Also, with external interaction the light can have any setting, and the computer does not know. So, if the user is executing "Light Off" the computer should send that command.

Any thoughts?

Users / Re: Configuring Xine Player in LMCE
« on: January 07, 2008, 09:08:48 am »
Hello Thom,

edit /root/.xine/config ... the Xine_Player (and any libxine based app for that matter) will use this config file.

are you sure about this? The xine from within Pluto used that file, but the information from the /etc/pluto/xine.conf seems to at least overwrite those settings.

They use different configuration files. The KDE version uses the /root/.xine/config.conf (i think) and the LMCE uses the configuration file /etc/pluto/xine.conf

Search for XINE on the Wiki and you might some helpful information regarding the audio issue.

Users / Re: ERROR: Please select a device template

Installed 0710 not long ago and when trying to add devices from the admin interface such as CM11A or windows xp mc remote after selecting the device template and clicking Pick Device Template it won't add the device but just gives ERROR: Please select a device template. Any ideas ?

Apart from using the 0704 version you can do the following:
* Select the device
* Note the number
* Add the number below manually
* Click Go
* Click Add Device template

Not nice, but works.

Installation issues / Meridian G68 RS-232 anyone?
« on: January 04, 2008, 05:00:09 pm »
Hello,

I need to control a Meridian Soundprocessor. I found the RS-232 codes, (http://www.meridian-audio.com/lib_apps.htm), but wondered, if anyone has created a PNP script for this device?

After playing with some network storage together with LMCE I will not go that route.
[..]
[..]after installing the 7.10 beta2 I've had some problems, but it could be bugs with the beta or I could have just had a problem with my setup....  (shares disappearing but coming back after rebooting the core/hybrid)

This is exactly the problem I encountered. But it might have to do with me accessing the Samba server on the outside network.

Hello Dan,

interesting to hear your experience about the Fiire 1" boxes. Did they ever respond to your problems? From the look of the PC it is a great way, if you don't want an optical drive near your TV (like in the kitchen). But, if something does not work like it is suppose to work from a commercial company, I might get a bit unfriendly with that company.

Apart from Fiire, I stand by the notion, that not using a All-In-One machine is my preference.

Hello Dave,

the terminology can be daunting at first, but will get better.

I would advise against using an all-in-one pc, but get a decent flat panel display, plus something like Fiire 1" station, which can be bolted directly to the back of the display. You will be more flexibel and, if you go the Fiire route, you have a company guaranteeing LMCE compatibility.

PS: I am sure, there are other companies supplying bolt-on PCs for the VESA connector of the flat panel displays.

It seems a problem of a read error. I modified the disk_copy.c a bit to change the buffers, it just fails. On a different disc, changing (lowering) the buffers yielded better results.

Anyone know, if there are any parameters to be set during the read function to retry on failure?
