Installation issues / 1004: Nvidia GT240 black screen after update
« on: March 29, 2014, 09:28:39 pm »
Installed fine, AV Wizard came up, setup fine with HDMI, system was running well..... and then.

I did an apt-get update then apt-get upgrade, restart and black screen.

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.

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?

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?

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.

New install of 8.10 release.  When I run I have the problem listed here:

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

Any suggestions?

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.

I only see the mobo's on newegg, not the barebone machine.  Would you be kind enough to post a link to the barebone?

I wanted to try one of these but everyone is saying it's discontinued.

Anybody know anything about this, is it a dead product, is a replacement coming out, anything?

I've got a commercial installation that has 17 MD's.  However, there are only a few different video streams feeding at one time.  Typically 3 different video files playing on a few TV's each and a number of still images displayed on other TV's.  I currently do not have any problems, but when setting it up I tried playing different video on each TV and after 7 or 8 I began to notice video/audio stutter. 

I didn't do any extensive testing as the system design wasn't intended to support that many different streams.  I'm only posting this to support the other replies in that I don't think one core could support that many MD's.  I would probably look at something like colin is suggesting, break up the campus into "zones" with a core in each.  For live TV this shouldn't be an issue as you can assign tv feeds as you like. 

With regards to stored media this raises an interesting question that maybe someone else could answer.  The question is, can multiple cores share a networked storage device?  i.e. Could you locate all your stored media on a NAS device and have all the cores use it?  If so, then that's what I'd do.  It gives you distributed processing while maintaining centralized storage.

Don't know if I helped at all but I hope so.  Please keep us updated, I'm interested in how this turns out.


I'm very sorry but this: tar -xjf <path to dshowserver-ia32-r63-gentoo.tar.bz2 is just plain wrong, either you are telling tar to read from a file and then redirect a file to it's standard input instead, or you're intending a <placeholder> but you forgot the ">".  Instead I don't really see much of a problem with tar -xjf <path/to/>dshowserver-ia32-r63-gentoo.tar.bz2, so please enlighten me.

If you'll check the man page, you'll find that: patch -p1 < <path to coreavc-for-linux>/xine/dshowserver.patch is actually equivalent to: patch -Np1 -i <path/to/coreavc-for-linux/>xine/dshowserver.patch.  With the added benefit of quitting if the patch was already applied, instead of asking to reverse the patch instead which can be confusing. 

Now obviously pasting things with <placeholders> isn't going to work when you copy/paste them literally anyway, but the real problem however was because you misspelled "libxine" in the first place.  So thanks for your lovely "compliment", but the only one that messed up here was you.  It's a bit sad to see you (and nobody but you) complain about these non-related trivial things to cover that up though.

And no, I haven't tried it myself because I don't see this problem at all (apart from that I am not a big fan of closed source software).  But if I had, we probably wouldn't even be having this discussion now would we?

I can't imagine why more people don't try to help with the project considering the warm reception efforts are met with.  LOL

I have a 710 installation at work and a 704 installation at home.  Can't really speak to the home one as I use it to tinker so I break it about twice a week.  The installation at work is used to demo a home theater system that includes LMCE for DVD/Music only (no lighting, alarm, surveillance, etc.) and it runs rock solid.  I can't remember the last time I had to reload or reboot the system.  But again, it's only being used to rip/play movies and music so there isn't much going on with it.
