Users / hdmi balun's
« on: March 26, 2010, 08:14:37 pm »
All my speakers are in wall/ceiling and therefor I am thinking about leaving all the actual pc's for each room in the rack in the basement, and using hdmi balun's to get the video to each tv/projector. The only downside I can see is lack of a dvd tray. I can transfer remote signals via many options.

Any seasoned opinions on a setup like this?


Users / torrent for latest dvd
« on: January 06, 2010, 08:13:33 pm »
Hey guys,
The torrent filename doesn't match the latest iso filename, before I queue it up, is it still the same?

It looks like the install script attempts to write to /dev/cciss/c0d01 instead of /dev/cciss/c0d0p1 for the first partition?
How can I get around this for 710?

Kubuntu 810 will install on an HP (and therefor I assume simply installing the beta through apt will too), but will the unified installer for 810 still have the bug?


Users / TV Tuner Question
« on: April 09, 2009, 03:32:49 am »
I actually don't even own a TV ;) but am setting up a system and have a few questions. Being in Canada, from what I understand Cable from Shaw must be decoded by their Motorola box if you want to watch HBO in HD for example. That makes it necessary to hook a TV up directly to it (as well as one of the TV's inputs to a media director). If I wanted to watch regular TV, I could stream the signals by hooking the cable up directly to a tuner in the core?

So I am reading about this HDHomerun, aside from streaming the video over the wire, does this add any viewing capabilities to the system as far as what can be watched/tuned from where? I'm a little unclear on "what" can be streamed and how? If it hooks up to incoming cable, I still cant decode any HD that is not OTA, right?

Bottom line I guess, until an HD capture card gets support, streaming anything from the Shaw box in very high quality isn't an option, correct?


Users / Insteon versus Zwave
« on: March 23, 2009, 05:39:31 pm »
I am going through incredible grief over getting Insteon docs for the new 2412N Ethernet based controller for Insteon lighting and HA products.

What can anyone suggest as far as zwave and its use in mce? Is it pretty solid, and issues to be aware of?
Also, does anyone have any reco's as far as a manufacture to favor for zwave integrated products?

Thanks for any insight!

Developers / Insteon 2512S and 810
« on: March 23, 2009, 05:35:54 pm »
Anyone know if DDamrons implementation of the 2412S will be included and fully functional in 810? Currently its a bit of work to get this setup in 710.

Are these length to server as placeholders for future apps, or is this an error?


Users / iPhone or Touch as Orbiter
« on: March 18, 2009, 04:08:56 am »
What's the low down on using these, I am about to order some devices and am not sure what to get. I think I might get a new WebDT360 (so it can be dual purposed) and either something like a Nokia N810 or some Touch's.

What would you guys suggest, the Nok, or Apple?

Also, is the Javamo a better interface then the web interface? Is it possible to run the javamo on the touch/iphone after its jail broken and has java installed?


Users / Sync Repo for multiple 810 installs
« on: February 26, 2009, 05:39:54 am »
Is it possible to resync the repo (or is their a debian way to do this) so updates can be added to a local copy?

Users / MD Display dissapears during Video Wizard
« on: February 21, 2009, 10:17:20 pm »
I booted a MD, it ran through the setup_diskless, rebooted, but when the display mangler started so the Video Wizard could launch the display dissapeared. This MD is a laptop with a DVI and S Video output, but I only have a VGA/DVI monitor at this location so I need to force it to use either the built in display or the dvi output.

I read but I don't get video at either the dvi connector or the built in LCD? I can only get video and complete the Video Wizard with the vesa driver, not the nvidia driver. I have tried the Option "ConnectedMonitor" "XXX" with every variance to no avail?

Any ideas?


Users / HP ProLiant ML350 G5 for Core
« on: February 20, 2009, 10:15:34 pm »
Anyone see why this wouldn't work? Aside from the likely abysmal video performance, it probably would make a solid machine. I won't ever be using is with a monitor anyway...


Users / Alarm Panel Choice
« on: February 17, 2009, 06:09:00 pm »
Because of a specific vendor choice, I am being asked to implement either a Caddx NX-8E or an Apex Destiny-6100. Both will be wired directly to the core via rs-232. Does anyone have any opinions as to the ease of use between these two related only to its integration with LinuxMCE?


Users / Enumerate database of discovered devices
« on: February 03, 2009, 04:23:07 pm »
How do I look at what the core has at one time discovered and someone may have said to ignore every time?

Users / Convergent MM200 Case
« on: February 02, 2009, 04:11:42 pm »
Anyone know who makes this?
I am looking for a case just like this for one of my units...


Users / Nice MD Cases
« on: January 31, 2009, 07:18:09 am »
I have been searching forever for a nice case, I stumbled on and those have got to be the nicest case I have seen. I am not opposed to using a mini itx with a riser to get a good graphics card in. Anyone know a manufacturer that makes cases as good as these?
