Users / Zoom not working in 12.04?
« on: September 30, 2014, 09:07:44 am »
New install of 12.04.  When viewing video the zoom no longer works.  I can change aspect but clicking the zoom buttons does nothing.  Is this a known issue or something I can fix?

Users / New Build Graphics Card Recommendation
« on: September 29, 2014, 06:56:22 pm »
OK, after fighting with my old hardware, I've just gotten new hardware.

For a Hybrid Core I'm using a Dell Optiplex i7, 32GB RAM, but I need to know what graphics card I should get that will allow problem free HDMI with audio.  I plan on running 12.04.

Any help would be appreciated.

Edit:  If it's pertinent, I don't use a receiver, just HDMI straight into my LED TV.

Installation issues / HDMI Audio AC3 Problem
« on: September 26, 2014, 03:26:06 pm »
I've been fighting this thing for days.  I have an NVidia chipset with HDMI on board.  Running 10.04 Hybrid.  Going through the A/V wizard I get no sound when using HDMI but if I continue through the wizard anyway, I get audio when I play music/video EXCEPT when I play anything that uses AC3 encoding.

aplay -L output:

Installation issues / Where do I find 'Sound Preferences'?
« on: September 26, 2014, 08:36:22 am »
So I'm trying to get HDMI audio working per the wiki instructions.  Everything is fine until this part:

Code: [Select]
Then select 'HDA NVidia NVIDIA HDMI (ALSA)' as output for all items in 'Sound Prefrences' and select 'HDA NVidia (Alsa mixer)' as the mixer.
Where do I find 'Sound Preferences'?

Users / Re: Core continually "finds" hard drive.
« on: July 04, 2013, 05:09:41 pm »
Thank you for the reply.

I do not see the notification while playing media.  As to the disk size, during the install I just chose the option to use the entire 2TB disk in the system.  As my system consists of the Hybrid which I rarely watch media on and one MD with half a dozen zwave light controls, I've never seen any performance problems so I've never bothered to explore speed optimization.

Users / Core continually "finds" hard drive.
« on: July 04, 2013, 03:57:31 am »
New install of 10.04, One hybrid core, one MD.  Everything runs fine except about every 15 minutes I get the box in the upper left corner of my core that says "Done installing device.... /sda1 1.81TB etc" for the hard drive that it's installed on.

Any suggestions?

Users / 1004??
« on: October 07, 2011, 07:37:14 pm »
How stable is 1004 for playing movies only?  I'm not ready to roll out any other features but would like to fire it up just to play video for now.  I have a couple of Asus B202's that I use for MD's.

Also, is this installation guide up to date?  http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_1004

Thanks

Reinstall seems to have fixed it.

Yes, when I found the wiki, I did check the sources.list and avenard was not listed.  I'm currently doing a complete reinstall.

The error in the wiki article that I linked is my exact error.

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
pluto-mythtv-player: PreDepends: mythtv-backend but it is not going to be installed
                     PreDepends: mythtv-frontend but it is not going to be installed
E: Broken packages
#### Package pluto-mythtv-player failed (/tmp/tmp.lFSpF13245) - We wait 10sec and try again - to stop retrying press Ctrl-C.


Retrying yields and endless loop of the same error.

Installation issues / Diskless image creation problem.
« on: October 05, 2011, 11:21:35 pm »
New install of 8.10 release.  When I run Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh I have the problem listed here: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Error_Running_Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh

The wiki article says the solution doesn't apply anymore as avenard isn't used.

Any suggestions?

Users / Re: Can I still get 710?
« on: June 27, 2011, 10:28:34 pm »
My main issue is that my wife and kids are very very attached to the Fiire remote.  I installed 810 and the limited functionality for that remote is a deal breaker.  I tried the torrent but there is only 2 seeders and the download stalled.

If there is an .iso location someone could provide, I'd be very grateful.
