Regarding the 3Ware performance problem. this is what I have found.

Some more information. I tried manually copying the DVD to the harddisk. It always stops at the same position. Is it possible, that this is some kind of copy protection coming into play?

Error reading '/dev/hdc': Input/output error

Users / Input/output error file during RipTask
« on: January 03, 2008, 02:36:38 pm »

during my journey with LMCE I tried ripping a couple of DVDs. Some work fine, while others cause problems.

Currently I tried to rip a Ghost Rider DVD. The DVD plays fine :), but ripping the DVD causes I/O errors  :'(. Other

Ideas anyone?

Any and help is greatly appreciated.

After playing with some network storage together with LMCE I will not go that route. Maybe it should work, but my experience has been bad when using cifs or nfs mounted drives with LMCE. So, my installation(s) will not use NAS, but local storage. Maybe iSCSI is another route.

are you going to split the TV and radio part of the VDR channels, or are both available as TV?

I did not think about such a solution.

The main problem might be, that you are getting quite far away from the wall. Make sure your connection to the wall is stable enough.

I thought about implementing the MD behind the panel as well, but we went a different route and added an MD below. Why? Simple. Usability. One of the things people tend bring a CD or DVD home. They don't want to walk into a closet where the server is situated to put the media into the drive. They go straight to the display, insert the media into the device and want to start watching/ hearing.

Yes, it does add "clutter" to the living room, but in my opinion, it is well worth it.

Are you looking for a totally new computer, or just ideas for implementing storage within an existing system?

If it is the later one, I suggest a good quality 8-Port SATA-II RAID controller (about 450€), like the TEKRAM (ARECA) ARC-1220 or TEKRAM (ARECA) ARC-1120. Start with three 1TB drives (ea 350€), get a good SATA backplane (abut 100€) and you are set. With a little bit of luck you will end up below 1500€. I assume pricing in USD will be similar. You save some money by getting a 3WARE RAID controller, but those have some performance problems (or so I have heard) with bigger files.

BTW: I would not put all my files onto a single partition, because of problems with large file system sizes.

Exactly my feelings as well. From my point of view, it might make more sense to "fix" the Z-Wave implementation to support the currently available controllers. The pricing for the components is not that far off, and you have way more choice. At the end of the day you have to have devices to use, and what I have seen on the PLC related sites do not look so promising.

My €0,02.

As noted previously, run CAT5/6 everywhere. Everywhere is, each place where you need a light, each place where you have any kind of electrical outlet, each window and door. Run 2-4 CAT5 cables to every place where you think you already know you need 1. If feasible run an HDMI cable from your central wiring closet to the your intended TV place.

Did I mention to make sure to run enough cables :)

Yes, cables do cost money, but in the end of the day, putting the cables in now, will save you a lot and will later on greatly enhance the SWMBO / WAF factor.

Yes but it seems a bit overkill or am I wrong?

It depends on your wants and needs. It sure is more expensive than things like X-10. I recently priced EIB just for kicks.

Starting with the needed stuff is about 300EUR, plus around 100-150EUR per device you want to control.

have a look at the European-Installation-Bus. Lots of companies to choose from. Not cheap, but very versatile.


Users / Alarm Clock
« on: December 29, 2007, 11:26:11 am »
Good day,

to get to know events better, I would like to setup LMCE as my alarm clock. LMCE should play a specific media file at a special time each day.

Anyone has a detailed step by step instruction? I know, i have to setup an event for this, but I can't get the hang of the additional parameters to play a file onto a MD.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hello Andrew,

after posting I was looking again to find some kind of information backing up my claim. Could not find any :-( I might have mistaken merten and moeller.

However, using a proprietary RF technology instead of a proven available one is kind of stupid in my book.

I think, XComfort is a Z-Wave implementation by Moeller. At least, it has all of the characteristics of Z-Wave.
