Installation issues / Dianemo S - Stalled at Dianemo Flashing Logo
« on: July 01, 2012, 09:03:15 pm »
Whilst adding some firewall rules, appeared to get a hang,  did a shutdown -r from console, and now at boot get as far as the flashing Dianemo logo.

dmesg output attached.

Anything I can check for more information?

I thought in the AV Wizard (after choosing resolution) there is a later screen where you can resize/reposition the image on the screen - did you not get to that screen?

What directory structure should I use to best integrate MythTV with Dianemo?

Thanks Andrew - all working fine now.

Installation issues / Dianemo S - DHCP Server
« on: June 12, 2012, 02:46:56 pm »
Any known issues,  suggestions of things to check if DHCP clients on LAN side are not getting an IP address?

Was working fine, before changing LAN/WAN addressing on Core -  :-[

12.04 32bit, recent fresh install of Dianemo.

Devices with Fixed IP address on LAN side can Browse internet and dianemo admin pages
Firewall on Dianemo currently off
Can Browse internet and LAN devices from Core

See attachment for settings - have tried enable/disable/restarts of core.

Great looking stand Andrew, am sure it was a busy few days.  Had tickets and plans to attend, but end of month work got in the way at the last minute.

However currently the Duet controllers themselves are not fully integrated.

Just checking that you have you seen that firmware (in the last year or so) that on the Duet controllers allows them to appear as just another Squeezebox Receivers, and use their built in speaker for audio playback - that was how I was thinking it might work.

using your iOS device as a portable Squeezebox :-)

Andrew, I'm thinking this would maybe also work with the Logitech Duet controllers?

We just need the hardware and a reason to do it.


The N810 video has 1,253 views in only a short space of time, I imagine a youtube video with N900 tag with get a fair number of views, and generate interest in Linuxmce.

Anyone working on Orbiter for Nokia N900?

A few days with mine and its a 'keeper', but would like to sell off at least one of my N810's,  and that means I would be an orbiter down.

you guys _really_ need to back off the faux reflectivity. it cuts down on the effective viewing distance, subtlety is the key to a good look.


any suggestions how to cut down on the reflections I get from the screen?

I forced the N810 up to max brightness and max backlight, which helped a bit.  Would backlighting the whole thing help do you think?

On that note - My N810 (and also DT360) load up and execute commands much slower than what I see in that video.  Not to hijack your thread - but, were there any modifications made to achieve that performance?  What does the wireless network setup look like?  I just have your average off-the-shelf WiFi router running as an AP with WPA-PSK - maybe I have high packet-loss, I haven't checked...

The orbiter on the N810 is the only application that I notice slows down as you load more and more applications,  my second N810 is getting too slow to use as an Orbiter now.

Try closing down a few applications on the N810,  and disable all the desktop applets.

Also look in N810 Control Panel / Memory / Virtual Tab - tick the box to extend virtual memory, and max it out at 128MB - IIRC this needs you to have a storage card inserted and available.

Wireless is wireless G to a Cisco Access Point - I do notice better throughput with the Cisco box rather than consumer kit,  but thats more for large file transfers than the orbiters.  Use the Cisco more for it being reliable and never needing to be rebooted.

My WebDT366's respond about as quick as the N810 in the video,  so maybe its your server rather than network.  Mine is pretty much unstressed as its a dedicated large server in the garage.

Maybe someone more technical can chip in with the architecture, but do you have a load of orbiters that all need to update?  I have the two N810's and two DT366's.

The point in the video where mardibloke has to touch the screen a few times to get I, Robot to play is caused by the location of the 'Play' button in that screen...its proximity to the edge of the screen makes it difficult to 'touch' accurately with a finger.

Yep, and fat fingers, and holding the video cam, and trying to do it in one take.

Enough excuses?
