Users / Orbiter Screen Size / Options
« on: August 18, 2009, 12:46:23 pm »
I have an Acer aspire one which i am using as an orbiter and would like to have it running full screen (1200 x 600). None of the available sizes seem to fit well. Is there a way that I can get it full screen.

I also use a fedora PC as my computer and would like to have an Orbiter running on it.( instead of inside a windows XP virtual PC). Is there a native linux Orbiter.

Installation issues / alpha 2.28 issues
« on: August 12, 2009, 02:00:40 pm »
I have upgrade to alpha 2.28 and have now got the following issues.

1. From an MD i was unable to connect to the Internet. I was able to fix it with the following command
Code: [Select]
echo 1 >> /proc/sys/net/ipv4/ip_forwarding

2. I am now unable to create a new MD. The PXE boot process starts but just after the network comes up I get a message that it can't connect to the router and reboots.

Installation issues / New device not showing on media tab
« on: July 08, 2009, 01:28:05 pm »

I have been creating some new device templates for my Receive/DVD/Projector and Cable box and i am unable to get the cable box to display as a device on the media tab. I do have the radio for my receiver and TV/DVD for my DVD player but cannot get the cable box to show.

If i go to the resend codes the device is however there, but i don't get a nice orbiter controller window.
which of the options in the template result in a device being added to the media tab.

Installation issues / GC100 vs USB-UIRT
« on: June 30, 2009, 04:36:05 pm »
I have recently installed a ISB-UIRT to be able to learn the pronto codes for my devices, which I have now done and been able to test using the USB-UIRT as the controlling device.

However when I switch it back to the GC100 as the controlling device the codes no longer work. I did have the GC100 working initially with 1 of my devices via IR but that doesn't work ant more. The transmit lights still show that it is trying but it doesn't work.

The serial port of the GC100 is working as it can still switch my Projector on and off.

Installation issues / learning pronto ir codes with USB UIRT
« on: June 23, 2009, 03:06:58 pm »
I have just purchased a USB UIRT to use in learning the pronto codes for my STB and DVD player.
I have attached the USB-UIRT to my core/hybrid but when I press learn nothing comes up.

This is process i am following.
  • From admin website on core goto wizard -> Devices -> A/V Equipment
  • Select AV Properties for device
  • Select AV Properties for device
  • Then select new Code

Nothing Happens.

I have installed Lrnhelper.exe with the USB-UIRT on a windows XP machine. I can learn the code and test it but when I paste  and test it into the new code box it doesn't work.

Any help would be appreciated.

Developers / Help with Ruby Code
« on: June 21, 2009, 06:35:38 am »
I am trying to create a device template for an Infocus IN74 projecter which is contolled via a serial cable.
I have adapted the Denon ruby code but it doesn't compile correctly.
There is also an error that Paritybit/Stopbit 8N1 NOT supported.

The commands to switch the device on/off are (PWR1) and (PWR0) inclusive of the brackets. Not sure if the brackets would be a problem.

Installation issues / missing IR devices on GC100 alpha2
« on: June 16, 2009, 01:34:31 pm »
I am getting the following error in the GC100 log.

Creating child 69 <0xb78cb6c0>
05   06/16/09 20:57:25.147      Note: Device manager has attached a device of type 1980 that this has no custom event handler for.  It will not fire events. <0xb78cb6c0>

This happens for each of the IR ports and they dont show up in the device tree under the GC100. Also the serial Port looks a little defferent to what it was under 710.

Users / Missing Media
« on: June 11, 2009, 04:06:30 pm »
I have installed an 8.10 core and MD and have MythTV all working OK. However my videos which are stored on a Linux server and shared out via SMB are not visible when browsing media. I have used the web admin interface and they all show up with a tick that they have been detected and i have even been able to add imdb data to them.

I know they are there because I can do a search and they will come up(and i can play them) but they don´t show in the browser.

Installation issues / unable to get 1080p on 810 alpha
« on: June 09, 2009, 08:58:02 am »
I have re-installed my core with Alpha 810 and cannot get any resolution higher that 420p to display. I was previusly running 710 and had 1080p with UI1 running.

I have changed the video card (all Nvidia) but still get the same problem. All resolutions greater that 420p only show the top left quarter/eighth of the screen, so the countdown and continue/cancel buttons are not visible.

ps. have booted and configured an MD running at 1080p  UI2 with no issues from this core.

Any help would be appreciated.

Installation issues / can't get MD on Alpha 2 to start
« on: April 26, 2009, 11:54:36 am »
Hi All,

I have gone through all steps for creating diskless MD and everything is fine untill the prompt_user_window comes up with the message "The UI is being regenerated. This will take 15-30 minutes. ...."

I have left it running overnight but still MD wont start. I have also checked output on TTY1 and there is no activity.
