Users / Adding MythPlugins to LinuxMCE (Particularly MythVodka)
« on: June 06, 2009, 06:47:11 pm »
Hello All,

I'm looking for a way to add MythVodka to my current 0710 setup, so I can take advantage of the streaming media via Hulu and the BBC.  I started working on it, but I realized that there isn't a mythplugin directory.  Can anyone let me know what if there is way to make this happen. Below is the link to the MythVodka site for some background.



Users / Sony VAIO VGP-XL1B3: Does LMCE still support this hardware
« on: March 19, 2009, 07:32:24 pm »
Hello All,

I know the wiki says that these are out of production, but I'd like to know if they can still be used with LMCE. 



Installation issues / Harmon Kardon AVR-254 with RS232
« on: January 04, 2009, 11:47:17 pm »
Hi All,

I'm looking into buying an AV receiver, and I came across the Harmon Kardon AVR-254 with RS232 for a pretty good price.  It has an RS232 port, along with HDMI out, which is exactly what I've been looking for.  I'm thinking it'll work with my system using an RS232 to USB converter cable, but I want to be certain before I purchase it.  If anyone has any input regarding this model or brand and its ability to work with LMCE, feel free to let me know.  Below is a link to the HK website for more information



Users / Web Orbiter with Iphone 3g
« on: September 06, 2008, 01:56:06 pm »
Hello All,

I recently purchased the Iphone 3G and am attempting to use it as a Web Orbiter.  I've been able to connect to MD using my WiFi connection, but when I try to select "TV" or "Video" or any of the other options, nothing happens.  Can someone explain how this is supposed to work?  I followed the instructions to letter, but not sure my configuration is working properly.  Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Users / Question Pertaining to MCE USB remote
« on: July 17, 2008, 05:54:21 am »
Hello All,

I'm trying to configure my Windows MCE USB2 remote to use the "More" button as a way to change tv tuners in Myth while watching television.  I normally use the Y button on my keyboard, but that's kind of annoying.  I was given the following lirc code from someone on the Ubuntu Forum, but I don't know where in LMCE I need to put it.   Can someone let me know where the code needs to be placed?   <Please see code below>

Code: [Select]
# brand:                        HP
# model no. of remote control:  TSGH-IR01
# devices being controlled by this remote: HP Slimline S3100y
# Derived from MCEUSB2 lircd.conf file (lircd.conf.mceusb) found at:

# RC-6 config file
# source:
# used by: Philips
# Philips Media Center Edition remote control
# For use with the USB MCE ir receiver
# Dan Conti  dconti|
# Updated with codes for MCE 2005 Remote additional buttons
# *, #, Teletext, Red, Green, Yellow & Blue Buttons
# Note: TV power button transmits no code until programmed.
# Updated 12th September 2005
# Graham Auld - mce|
# Radio, Print, RecTV are only available on the HP Media Center remote control
# Updated with codes for MCE 2007 Remote additional buttons
# Visualization, Aspect, SlideShow, Eject

Installation issues / Adding my ZCS101 Zwave controller
« on: June 25, 2008, 02:35:01 am »
Can someone let me know how I go about installing my Zwave controller.  I thought it was Plug and Play, but the setup wizard isn't picking it up. Any help would be appreciated.


Installation issues / Adding my CM11A for lighting.
« on: May 17, 2008, 02:29:03 am »
Hello All,

Are there any up-to-date instructions on how to get LMCE 710 to recognize CM11A lighting module.  I've looked around the forum, but I've only come across stuff from last year, and I was hoping that there was something regarding the most recent release.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Users / Bluetooth Dongle
« on: May 07, 2008, 06:59:46 pm »
Hi all,

My Bluetooth Dongle keeps adding devices, and alerting me after each one is done.   Is this normal, and if it is, is there a way to disable that feature without disabling my access to the dongle?


Users / Nokia N75 (Symbian 60 v3) vs. Iphone
« on: April 13, 2008, 09:20:33 pm »
I recently purchased the N75, and came to find out that LMCE doesn't currently support Symbian 60 v3 phones.  I read a post saying that you can use an Iphone as a Web Orbiter. I'm still within the 30 day period for returning my N75, so I was considering upgrading to the Iphone. I wanted to know if there's any chance that Pluto will support S60 v3, or should I just get the Iphone?


Installation issues / Mount XFS Partition
« on: April 04, 2008, 06:16:56 pm »
Helo All,

Can someone help with the mounting of my 2 xfs media drives?  I've tried using "mount /dev/sdc1/", for example,  but I get the following error:

mount: wrong fs type, bad option, bad superblock on /dev/sdc1,
       missing codepage or helper program, or other error
       In some cases useful info is found in syslog - try
       dmesg | tail  or so

I ran dmesg and got this:

[  670.452000] XFS: unknown mount option

I realized that XFS wasn't installed so I ran sudo apt-get install xfs then tried to mount again, but receive the same messages. The only reason I've chosen to set my system up this way is so I can continue to 500gb drive for movies and 250gb for recordings with my 80gb for the system. I'd like to keep each independant.  I keep receiving messages from LMCE asking if I like to turn each media drive in to an "Internal HDD", but I'm not familiar enough with the file structure in LMCE and don't want to get myself in a hole.  If there is a way to for me to achieve my goal using the LMCE file structure, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Users / Change Inputs Feature
« on: February 23, 2008, 04:47:46 pm »
Hi All,

Does anyone know if there is a bug in the "Change Input" feature from your remote control?  I'm sure this more of an issue with LIRC, as oppose to LMCE, but I wanted see if anyone had any information.


Users / MythTV freezing while watching TV.
« on: February 14, 2008, 04:18:12 pm »
Hello all,

I'm currently running LMCE 7.10 Beta, and I've come across a problem while trying to watch TV.   Every time Myth loads up I'm able to watch TV for about 30 seconds and then it completely freezes up. Now this is just Myth freezing, not my system.  I know Myth is CPU hog, but I didn't know it was this bad.  Is anyone else having this problem?

Users / Adding additional Hard Drives
« on: February 04, 2008, 11:55:05 pm »
Hi All,

I'm currently running MythTV on ubuntu and I've been considering stepping it up to LinuxMCE.  I currently have 3 internal drives in the box right now, 1) System  2) Movies and 3) Recordings.  I know I will have to do a fresh install of LinuxMCE on my system drive, but I don't want LMCE to format all 3 disks during install, and lose the media I have. If I unplug the media drives and run the install, will LMCE recognize the drives afterwards, or do I have to format all 3 disks and start from scratch?   Any help is greatly appreciated.
