I have sent an email to the USPTO, with the following text:

http://www.localeconcept.com/prior-art-proof.html

Can someone else look for alternative methods of contact?

-Thom

I spoke with my tenant, who just so happens to work at the USPTO in DC, and she said the likelihood of this being approved is very slim. She said companies try this crap all the time, but the approval board normally won't grant a patent for something like this. Unfortunately she's in the finance department, so she's not privy to the details of any patent requests. I'll see if I can gather anymore information from her.

Is there a way to handle boxed-sets, so that I would select, say "The Wire Season 3" and then see all the discs within that title?

I know that this is possible, but I just don't know how to get it done. If you figure it out, please provide the steps you follow so that they can be added to the wiki.

There are so many ways the VAX can be discretely installed around the house... this ones is cunningly disguised as washing machine http://computer-refuge.org/compcollect/dec/vax/11750/my11750-big.jpg

Dude, I think my hot water heater is smaller than this behemoth. Hopefully this is just gag.

Users / Re: Hulu Player not starting after router reload

Did you see this?

Sorry, I forgot to mention in my last post,

You can work around the hang-up by going into a terminal on the media director and typing,

Code: [Select]
killall -9 Hulu_Player

It will then respawn in 10 seconds, and everything will be okay.

I know it's not ideal, but this will work until I fix it (which will be when I get back from London in a couple of days.)

Problem solved. Thanks for the info huh.

Users / Hulu Player not starting after router reload
« on: March 21, 2010, 03:15:26 pm »
Hello,

I'm not sure if anyone else is having the same problem, but I had been using the awesome Hulu Player (Thanks Thom) for about week, then for some reason it just wouldn't start whenever I try to activate the program from the UI.  After a router reload I noticed the Hulu_Player was timing out before the completion of the reload.  I've tried uninstalling the package on both MD's, and updating the sqlCVS as well, but nothing helps. I've provided some log data, but I can provide more if necessary. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Ernesto

Installation issues / Re: reinstall Q
« on: March 09, 2010, 03:49:12 am »
ccoudsi,

I tried your performing the install as you suggested, but I'm seeing the brief MySQL error, and then the system reboots and repeats the process. Any ideas?


**Update**

After a reboot the system comes up and stays up, but the AVWizard doesn't come up. When I press the buttons that correspond to the output of my TV it says that it's not supported. This happens with both DVI and VGA connections.

I'm seeing the same MySQL message, but I can't make out what exactly it's saying.  I performed both the DVD install using the instructions on the wiki, and I also tried the net install. Both seem to be problematic.  I'm going to be doing more troubleshooting.

**Update**: I saw the following thread that I think may be useful.

Users / Re: FireWire Support for Motorola DCT-6412 using MythTV
« on: January 28, 2010, 03:30:49 am »
Since the MythTV option will require more time can the "LiveTV" option be made to use Firewire similar to the way that it uses the PVR-x50?

Users / Re: Comcast QAM an Guide data new Wiki item
« on: January 04, 2010, 01:37:41 am »
I know there are holes in the docs I just got it working over the weekend and the wiki entry is a scratch board for now - Feel free to update the Wiki.

The intention is to eventually fold this in to the hdhomerun install.

Tim,

I'd like to update the Wiki with the procedure I used for getting my Comcast Channels set up in Myth without the comcast_update script. It's really simple and sets everything up perfectly.  It's actually part of the instructions on the this site:

Thanks,

Ernesto

Installation issues / Re: [SOLVED] No sound after Beta 2 Installation
« on: December 23, 2009, 08:44:58 pm »
I re-imaged my MD, and after I made it a i386, the audio issue cleared itself up. 

Thanks for the help,

try going to a command prompt and run alsamixer I have found after installation some things get turned off. Use the arrow keys to go thru the different items and use the 'm' key to toggle them off and on. Then hit escape to exit. Hope this helps.


Thanks Kyfalcon. Your advice worked on my core, but I'm still having trouble with the sound on the Diskless MD. I don't understand why it's acting up now, when it was working fine with Beta 1.

More info please! What mobo are you using, sound card if applicable, connection type?

Sorry about that, but I thought that since my beta 1 install had no problems with sound that this might have been a common issue.

Mobo: ASUS M2N-SLI Deluxe AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 SLI MCP ATX AMD Motherboard

Onboard Sound card: Analog connection

So I've completed my Beta 2 installation, but I'm having problems getting the sound going.  To be perfectly honest, I have no clue what the problem could be as I as all the alsa packages installed. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

On the main LMCE web page under news you'll see that it says to ignore the 404 errors.

Good luck,
