Users / Re: Cable box and MythTV interface.
« on: February 03, 2008, 10:33:02 pm »
I setup the tuner and yes, the setup wizard sees my tuner. 

My issue is that when I bring up the MythTV guide and change the channel, it changes on the tuner card not the cable box.

Also the TV quality is terrible, is that because of my Tuner card?  If so what should I use instead of a PVR150?

Users / Cable box and MythTV interface.
« on: February 03, 2008, 07:46:22 pm »
I got my cable box and MythTV all setup but I'm not understanding something.

I only get Live TV when I set my MythTV channel to 4, any other channel is static.  Like on a TV with a cable box.  When I'm set to channel 4 I can change channels on my cable box with the cable remote, but that pretty much renders the Native Myth guide and recording useless as it has to stay on channel 4.

I want to have my cable box change channels when I select a channel from the guide not the tuner card.  Can this be done?

Installation issues / Re: WinTV-PVR-150 Problems
« on: February 03, 2008, 07:41:59 pm »
I also have PVR 150 but I'm having a different problem.

Got my cable box all setup, MythTV setup.  However here's my problem.

When I go to TV I have to set the MythTV to channel 4 to see my cable box output, this works fine but I then have to use my cable box remote to change channels and the MythTV guide and record functions are useless because tuning to any channel other than 4 gives static.

My question is, how can I get my cable box's tuning ability to work native in the UI?  Meaning if I tell it to go to channel 22 it changes the channel on the cable box, not on Myth tuner and likewise for recording?

Users / eSATA NTFS hard drive reports 0MB
« on: February 03, 2008, 01:54:49 am »
I'm trying to add a 500Gb eSATA hard drive to hold media.  New empty NTFS partition on the drive, I plug it into my 0710 box and it recognizes it.  I go through the wizard to use the drive for media and when I try to rip a dvd to it, it says the drive has 0MB.

Any ideas?

Don't know what it could be, I just tried a Morpheus download and was getting 392K/sec, Morpheus torrent 454K/sec, BitTorrent download 522K/sec. With files other than LMCE.

Download of LMCE DVD ISO is currently running in BitTorrent and I'm now getting 5.2K/sec.

I know there is no config or internet problem as anything else downloads at good speed.

Don't know what it could be other that not enough uploaders.


Edit:

LOL!! I'm uploading the damn thing at 31K/sec!!

Don't think so, I sometimes get up to 15K or so and other torrents I download I can get up to 1.4Mb/sec.  I'm on 2 bonded 6Mbit SDSL lines.  Speed has never been a problem.

I'll setup an FTP and post info here.

I have also been trying to download 710 via the torrents.  It's been 4 days and I'm currently getting 702bytes (yes bytes as in less than 1K) per second.

I'm trying to get updates on my 0704 core (new install).  It's been running for 3 days and the version info on the Advanced page shows Sat, Aug 4 2007.

When I click on "Force Upgrade Now", nothing happens.

I tried running these commands as per other posts to manually update:

cd /usr/pluto/bin
sudo ./LMCEUpdate_DownloadXml.sh
sudo ./LMCEUpdate
(takes some time, but when complete...)
sudo ./LMCEUpdate_Apply.sh

However when I get to the second one, I get this:

Still no updates.

I'm at a stage where I need to get MythTV setup but it seems I can't without these updates.  Can anybody steer me in the right direction?

Thx

The reason you can't have the Core's Internal interface on the same subnet as the Router is because you can't have two DHCP Servers on the same physical network and you can't have the same subnet on two different ethernet interfaces (How would the computer know which interface to send traffic to?)

Do you only have one Ethernet card in the Core box?

Leave your External Router (The WRT-54) the way it is (DHCP enabled).

Set the External Interface of your Core to obtain it's IP Dynamically.

I'm assuming you need the wireless capability of the WRT-150n as that is the only reason I can see having it there.  If that is the case then you need to disable DHCP at the least and if possible disable any routing capabilities at all.  Basically just turn it into an access point.  I would actually recommend eliminating that router and replacing it with a wireless access point.  Your Core is the router, putting another router between the core and your MD's only complicates the setup, there is no benefit.

Set the Internal Interface of your core's IP address statically, It should default to 192.168.80.1.  As long as that is not the subnet of your WRT-54 internal network then that will work fine.

The Core will handle DHCP for computers on the internal network and the WRT-54 will handle DHCP for the External network.  You can NOT have computers connected to both networks simultaneously, they will not work.

Here is an example IP configuration for your network:

WRT-54 Router
WAN address:  206.13.31.11 or whatever your ISP gives you.
LAN address:  192.168.1.254
DHCP Enabled

Core/Hybrid
External address: 192.168.1.xxx whatever the WRT-54 gives you. (DHCP)
Internal address:  192.168.80.1 (Default for LinuxMCE this is the interface the Core will broadcast DHCP)

WRT-150n
Disable everything router and turn this thing into an access point.   Definitely disable DHCP.
If disabling routing is not possible on this box you must replace it as DHCP can't travel accross a router and you will not be able to assign addresses to the MD's that are connected to this router.

Clients connected to the internal network will be assigned numbers on the 192.168.80.xxx subnet and clients on the external network will be assigned numbers on the 192.168.1.xxx subnet.

Hope this helped.

Let me know if you need more info.

Hmm, I have turned the firewall on the hybrid off, but that didn't help. I also can't completely turn the firewall of my real router off, but I *can* put a computer into a "DMZ" (Demilitarized zone, haha) I've tried this on my hybrid *and* on my computer, but still no luck ...

And, errr, I do have multiple ip's actually:

I'm using a static ip as my "external network card eth0" (the one from the real router, as I turned that DHCP-server off) and that IP address is the same one as on my internal network card...

Finally, somewhere I can contribute!!

If you're running through a hardware router your configuration should be something like this:

Router WAN IP (Internet), will be a public address like 206.13.31.11 either static (given to you by your ISP that never changes) or dynamic (WAN setting in the router will be set to DHCP and the number may change).

Router LAN IP (Your internal network): This will be a private address chosen by you (The default for most routers is something like 192.168.1.254.

Your Core/Hybrid External address can be either statically assigned by you or dynamically assigned by your router.  In either case the number has to be on the 192.168.1.XXX subnet (or whatever the LAN IP subnet is on your router)

The Core/Hybrid Internal address will have to be on a DIFFERENT subnet as your router/core external interface.  i.e. if your router is on 192.168.1.xxx then your Core internal address can be on 192.168.80.xxx (which is the default), anything other than 192.168.1.xxx.

Example of working configuration:
Router WAN:  206.13.31.11
Router LAN:   192.168.1.254

Core External: 192.168.1.1
Core Internal:  192.168.80.1

Example of Non-Working Configuration:
Router WAN:  206.13.31.11
Router LAN:   192.168.1.254

Core External: 192.168.1.1
Core Internal:  192.168.1.2

The Core's Internal and External interfaces have to be on different subnets or it will not function correctly.

IMPORTANT NOTE:
If you want to continue to use your router as a DHCP server then the Core/Hybrid and your MD's have to be on different PHYSICAL network than your router.  Meaning the router plugs into the external interface on your Core only and can NOT be plugged into a switch that other computers/MD's will be plugged into.  All of your computers/MD's will plug into a switch that the Core/Hybrid INTERNAL interface is plugged into.  This configuration works well for instances when you have (like I do) a computer network that is unrelated to the Media network and you wish to keep them separate.

Now, for opening ports.

You have to do it in two places.  For this example I'm going to use 192.168.1.1 as your Core/Hybrid External address and 192.168.80.1 as your Core/Hybrid Internal address.

In your router you go to Port Forwarding or Applications and Gaming, whatever your router calls it and forward whatever port you want to 192.168.1.1 (The Core external address).

Then on the core you setup a port forward for the same port to the address of the MD or computer you want, for instance 192.168.80.50

So traffic for say port 22 comes in from the internet to your router, the router will forward that to the Core, then the core forwards to the client.

One caveat is that the Core dynamically assigns IP addresses to the MD's so the number could change, particularly if you leave the MD off for a while.  I don't know what the default lease time is for the Core's DHCP server, but it's usually something like 3 days.  If the IP of the MD does change then you will have to change the destination address in the Core to point to the new address of the MD.  No changes will need to be made to the router.

I hope this helped, I'll monitor this thread so if you have any questions post em here and I'll be happy to answer.

Go to the "Advanced" screen, if "LastUpdateVersion" is larger then zero you should have been upgraded as far as I know.  There should be a sticky thread about the updates somewhere.

EDIT: aparently the tread is no longer sticky, search is your friend...

"Advanced" meaning what?  Advanced in the WebAdmin, Advanced on the Orbiter menu?
