Users / Re: Question about thin clients.
« on: December 26, 2007, 02:35:50 pm »
Thanks, I know and use screen. The thing I am looking for as sort of like RDP on Windows Terminal Servers, where you detach your session, go home, and reconnect.

IIRC only NX does this on Linux, but I am not sure, hence my question.

Installation issues / Re: Would like to install a DM without DHCP setup
« on: December 26, 2007, 02:21:22 pm »
In short: There might be a way ;).

My current way of thinking is this:

  • Use the DHCP server on a dedicated network.
  • Create your MD.
  • Have a look at the create information in the /etc/dhcp3/dhcpd.conf file for your new MD.
  • Move these information over to your main DHCP server.
  • Disable the firewall on the core.
  • Disable the DHCP server on the core.
  • Reconnect the core to your main LAN
  • See what happens if you turn your MD on your main network on.

Tell us your results.

avajon,

thanks for the info regarding Live TV. I am still waiting for VDR integration.

However, another thing I could not find is manual Follow-Me. I can't find the F

Installation issues / Re: Orbiter on N800 (OS2008)
« on: December 26, 2007, 02:04:01 pm »
I just updated my N800 to OS2008 and installed the latest orbiter.

If you go directly to https://garage.maemo.org/frs/?group_id=162 and download the linuxmce deb it will tell you all the needed dependencies. Most of the dependencies can be downloaded directly from the garage page. Make sure, to download the mysql-common before the libmysqlclient.

If you have downloaded the dependencies of the garage page and retried the linuxmce deb off the garage page and you still have missing dependencies (as being told by the detail page of the programm manager), search for these dependencies in either the Maemo or the Maemo extra repositories. I had problems accessing the Maemo repositories direct, so I used the url http://stage.maemo.org and http://stage.maemo.org/extras

Also, right now there does not seem to be a deb Package for the Microsoft Truetype Fonts available for the N800. You have to copy the /usr/share/fonts/msttcorefonts directory contents over to your N800. The only way I was able to do this is by installing the openssh-server. BEWARE: Do not install openssh (containing client and server). It did not let me specify a password to be used for ssh. Manually removing the openssh-server and reinstalling the server alone did do the trick for me.

After the installation of the orbiter software on the N800 I tried starting it. It asked for the IP address of the DCERouter and the Device id of the created orbiter (see the Wiki on how to create the orbiter in the admin page of the DCERouter). However, connecting did not work, but hung the N800. What do you do, if a computer hangs? You turn it off. After restarting the N800 and re-executing the LinuxMCE Orbiter it took a while and started the orbiter. The orbiter is very good to read, and it is much faster than a weborbiter I tried before.

However, I have an (imported) audio library of about 15000 files. Choosing audio does take a while to start showing the list. Also, selecting one of the characters to jump to a specific performer, does NOT work on my installation.

As there is no progress displayed after selecting for example Audio, you sometimes double click. This can be especially bad, if you are selecting the Back button.

Another thing that does cause problems on my system is switching away from the orbiter to surf the net. Coming back shows a frozen screen (just white) and I have to kill the orbiter on the N800.

Hello Stuart,

you might want to start with LinuxMCE, which will install a full blown Kubuntu system, and later add the LTSP modules.

OT-BTW: How do detach a session and continue that session on another thin client with LTSP? I could not find anything during my run with LTSP (v4.x)

[..]Internal Upscaling cards does it exist? because I've read about this specific hardware chips for DVDs but I cannot find any for PCI, but can it be performed by software and better with PC Video cards?, I'm afraid not.

During a recent HT enthusiasts meeting we compared a Lumagen Scaler to a PC running Dscaler5 (without ffmpeg specifics), and we could not find a noticable difference on a CRT beamer displaying onto a 2,20x1,50 screen.

I don't know at the moment, how good the scaling within xine is, but even if it might not be as good as the used windows solution, it will eventually be there.

Speakers:

You must be kidding.

Regarding the other things on your list: Do some homework and use the http://wiki.linuxmce.org. Search for hardware and you should get a long list of things for you to pick and choose.

Regarding fiire at the beginning of this discussion: You have two choices. Build your own and do the research, or go to fiire and get a mostly ready made solution. I don't like their MD cases, so I will build my own, based on the cases from http://www.hifiatx.com/hfx.php?lang=EN (Caution: Flash Alert). The hfx Classic looks mighty nice, IMHO.

This will require a dual-layer DVD?
yes.

Oh shit, I need a way to automatically inform me of such vital information. Where do i get a DVD-DL media now. It is 22:01 in Germany, all shops near by are closed :-( The whole day, I walked thru computer superstores, but did not think about getting such a DVD-DL. I need to be more connected and check the forum more often. (Hey, this is another reason for moving to a mailing list  ;) )

Have a good day everybody.

« on: December 22, 2007, 10:21:15 pm »
i got a statement from samsung germany that the rs232 port is only for service maintenance.
It would be great if the codes would work.. it's the only missing feature from the M86/87 series.

Do you have a chance to test the connection using the supplied information?

Users / Send Command Turn On to MD
« on: December 19, 2007, 01:50:14 pm »
Hello,

I want to turn my MD on from remote. It works from within an Orbiter to turn the MD on. However, if I send a Command On to the that orbiter, it does not get turned on.

The MD is a Compaq Notebook seemingly turned on by a Wake-On-Lan or Magic Packet.

Anyone has any insight as to how to turn on that device with a command?

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Regards

Oliver

Hello Dan,

try the manual for one of their plasmas http://www.samsungforbusiness.com/management/products/PPM42M7HBXXAA_RS232_M6H_M7H_Plasma.pdf. I have read that most of the Samsungs understand the same codes

Zaerc,

yes, I have tested it with various bluetooth devices. Plantronics and SonyEricsson headsets being the last ones.

Any specific reason for your verfication question?

@Hari: Thanks for your input. Will see what can be done.

@Zaerc: The problem with all things wireless does not seem to be the size, but the structure of the house. Where in the US all houses on the west coast where not build using brick and mortar, but plywood and what else. Houses around this part of the world are mostly build out of very solid, radio-wave absorbing materials. Most of the time, this causes problems for W-LAN, but in this specific case it is "A Good Thing" :)

Hello Zaerc,

thanks for clearifying the problem.

My experience in houses in Germany indicates no such range problems. I have no bluetooth access outside of each room. It really works only within each specific room.

Is the current orbiter for the Nokias not capable of the automatic follow-up, or should just not be used?

Best regards

Oliver
