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



Zaerc's right, that link is really helpful.  You may also find this useful as well

Saw the video last night, setup looks great.  Hopefully I'll be picking 366 Orbiter very soon.

Hi all,

This is really disappointing.  I was going to try connect an MD to a usb wireless adapter, which would then attempt to PXEBOOT off a wireless router on the internal interface on my core.  There really isn't a point if you can't stream TV or Video.  Thanks for the info guys, I had been wondering whether this would be a possibility at all. 

Installation issues / Re: unable to install video driver

I just recently completed the 64bit install, and I can admit that it was a beast.  Below are the steps I performed. (Make sure you're network connection established as you'll need it to download your drivers.)

1) I started the system in recovery mode so I could get the command line interface.

2) If you haven't changed the default linuxmce account yours should be User: Linuxmce Pass: Linuxmce

3) Once logged run the following command to download the driver from the ATI website. Feel free to double check, but I sure this is the one you need. 


4) Type ls to make sure the file downloaded. If so type in sudo ./ It will ask for you linuxmce password, type it in.  If the "./" doesn't work try "sh".  If this works the program should be running.

5) Follow the prompts to install.

Hope this helps

Crumble's right.  If you scroll down on the Device Details page under CORE>Generic Web Device, you will see a box that is set to 60 seconds.  I changed it to 300, or 5 mins, and it works great.

I guess I forgot to mention that I also have the same problem when I connect to my MD using my Laptop as a Web Orbiter.   I've been over both the Web Orbiter install guide, as well as numerous posting on the forum, but I can't seem to find any reason why my setup isn't working.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

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

# Note:
# Blue, Yellow, Green, Red, and Teletext buttons do not exist on the HP remote

Whew, I was worried that I bought all this gear for nothing.  I'll saw domodude's thread, so I'll follow those directions to the letter and get back with an update on my progress.

Thanks guys.

I could have sworn it was used in the Linux Tag expo that took place earlier this month.  Besides,  I was told that HomePro replaced the ZCS000 with the ZCS101.  If what you're saying is true, that would really stink.

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.
