Installation issues / HDMI Via Denon A/V Receiver
« on: July 14, 2011, 12:46:39 am »
Sorry guys that I am having so many problems.  Thanks for all your help.  I have a Zotac Ion N230 that is working as a media director for a Visio TV via HDMI.  Both the audio and video seem to work ok.  I have a home theater that has a Epson Projector and a Denon 2311 A?V receiver.  I take the same MD that is working with the Visio and move it to the home theater.  The video portion works fine but there is no audio.  Again, this is using the HDMI input on the receiver.  I have tried several different inputs on the receiver with no luck.  Video good but no audio.  Alsamixer is fine and I can take the media director and plug the hdmi cable back into the visio and both audio and video work.  Is there a problem with audio via hdmi and the Denon 2311?  Any help will be appreciated.

Installation issues / No Z-Wave Control
« on: July 12, 2011, 01:49:17 am »
Hi  all,  I have a linuxmce 8.10 system with a Intermatic HA-22 usb controller and a HA-07 remote.  I am able to control lighting with the controller without any problems.  I am able to copy the network settings into LMCE and the lighting arrangement is on the device tree.  I have 6 lighting controls and they all show up.  Also on the device tree there is 8 Z-Wave controllers listed also.  I try to control the lighting and nothing happens.  The lighting modules will not respond to any commands issued from the admin page or anywhere.  The HA 07 controller works just fine.  Am I missing something here?

Users / Accessing Webcam from External Network
« on: June 25, 2011, 03:56:04 pm »
I have just installed a Panasonic webcam on my LMCE system and all is well.  My question is: can I access my webcam via the internet using a standard web browser.  I have a static IP address on my linksys router to which my core is attached.  Therefore the core is just another device on the router, IP address  I installed the camera on the internal network at and it works great.  How do I get to the camera via the internet ie to the linksys router to the core then to the cam?  Any help would be appreciated. 

Marketplace / Radio Shack Clearance
« on: June 13, 2011, 11:07:33 am »
Just wanted to let everyone know.  I found at our local Radio Shack GE Z-wave dimmers for $14.00, Outdoor Z wave switches for 9.99 and Lamp modules for 9.99.  They were marked for clearance and the guy said there should be the same offerings at other stores.  I hope this post is not inappropriate.  I dont work for Radio Shack or anything. 

Users / HDMI Audio on Zotac ION 230N
« on: June 13, 2011, 10:50:20 am »
I have a general question.  I have a new Zotac Ion 230N as a Media Director I followed the instructions and have HDMI audio working into a LCD TV.  My question is:  Does the volume control on the Media Director control the volume going to the TV or will it control the volume on the TV.  In other words, is the HDMI audio output fixed coming from the media director?  Monitoring Alsamixer during a volume change does not cause any activity.  Also Mute does not work.  Is this because the mute command is supposed to mute the TV and not the output from the Media Director?  Many thanks to L3mce for helping me get this far.


Installation issues / Is my install good
« on: April 26, 2011, 05:40:21 pm »
I would like some help with my installation.  How do I tell if my install is good?  I have re-installed the core two times over the past 3 days and have had different failures with each install.  First install the media directors failed when trying to start active X, the second install the media directors failed on initialization.  There seems to be directory problems with replication of songs on the media menu.  I need to know if there is a way to verify that all the modules are present.

Installation issues / Buffalo Linkstation won't play media
« on: August 21, 2010, 04:31:33 am »
Bout at wits end here.  What is happening is that the files on  the Buffalo linkstation will not play.  It seems that any attempt to play them hangs the MD or the orbiter giving the command.  I have followed the Wiki as best as I can and reviewed the forums.  There is something mentioned about description of the linkstation must match the mount command?  Initially the system did not recognize the linkstation so I used the to get the system to recognize it.  Everything seemed to come up and the dir structure was created on the linkstation.  Public/data/audio etc.  I can read and write to the drive.  It is only when I click on an album cover on the orbiter that the system quits.  Not sure what the next step is?  I hope someone can give me a hand with this.

This looks interesting.  Has anyone been following this one.  I suspect it is similar to the Zotac 330's that we have been working with.  Any ideas?

Installation issues / No Media Director audio 8.10
« on: January 06, 2010, 05:14:06 pm »
I had to do a reinstall of my 8.10 system beta 2.  The core/hybrid comes up fine but the MD does not have any audio even in the AVWizard.  I have a Zotac Ion 230 board and the previous install worked just fine. 
Anyone have this problem?  Any ideas?

Users / Continuous Dialing of phone numbers
« on: January 02, 2010, 04:51:06 pm »
Last night I got an email from broadvoice and was advised that I had violated their terms of service agreement.  It seems that my LMCE system had been making numerous phone calls out in a somewhat random sequence.  The system made 100's of calls without my knowledge spaced 20-30 seconds apart.  Broadvoice stopped the outgoing calls but the Core continued to dial throughout the night since I was not present to stop it.  Has anyone heard of such a thing?  Has my system been hacked?  I rebooted the system and it immediately began making calls again.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as I do not want to have to reload and if there was a hack how do I prevent it in the future? 

Installation issues / Not Able to Play DVD on MD 8.10 Beta 2
« on: December 10, 2009, 06:30:09 am »
I have a problem with 8.10beta2 DVD install.  I have a Zotac ION 230 as a MD.  It functions fine under the Alpha but I have been trying to update to the B2 and I have run into this problem.  Firstly, I have installed libdvdcss2 on both the core and MD.  The problem is that I can not get a DVD to play on the MD.  It plays fine on the CORE but not on the MD.  I have reloaded the MD twice without any luck.  I am really stuck at this point.


Installation issues / Stuck on php5-curl
« on: September 19, 2009, 10:04:14 pm » intrepid-updates/main php5-curl 5.2.6-2ubuntu4.3 [23.9kB]
Has anyone had this problem with the installer?  I keep getting this message over and over again and the system appears to hang.  I have waited 4 hours and there is no progress.  I am installing the 8.10 alpha per the wiki. 

Installation issues / Broadvoice and 8.10
« on: August 25, 2009, 09:18:55 am »
Wondering if anyone else has run across this problem.  I have a broadvoice account which works great in 7.10.  I have loaded 8.10 alpha 2.29 and I can not receive any incoming calls. I can make outgoing calls just fine.  I put the 7.10 disc back in the system and all returns to normal.  I checked the firewall and have it disabled.  Any ideas out there?

Feature requests & roadmap / Grocery List
« on: August 03, 2009, 06:00:00 pm »
This may be too pie-in-the-sky, but has anyone thought about putting a barcode reader on a MD in the kitchen and scanning stuff as you throw them away?  You could then make a grocery list that will replace the used items.  Just a thought.

Installation issues / Multiple USBUIRT's
« on: June 19, 2009, 01:35:39 am »
OK I am at the wits end again.  I have a bit of an unusual configuration.  The core/hybrid is in a machine room with 4 Directv H21-200 HD receivers.  The receivers are then coupled with 4 TV's throughout the house via component cables.  Yes, the house was designed for this initially and I did not have much say in the matter.  The problem is that I have 4 USBUIRT's connected to the core/hybrid and they all fire off at the same time sending commands to all 4 satellite receivers and changing the channels on every one.  Is there any way to select which USBUIRT transmitter is used for each room?  This thing is driving me to drink.  The USBUIRT's all have USBUIRT 0038 as their parent.  I sure hope there is a way around this.  I guess I could get 4 media directors with one usbuirt on each and set it up that way but it would be pretty expensive.  All I want to do is change channels etc on the cable boxes.

Any help would be appreciated.
