Users / 0810 avwizard woes (possible bug ?) SOLVED
« on: December 03, 2009, 08:36:13 pm »
Hi all,

I've installed beta2 (dvd) , initially  on the dvi output of my ' Sparkle' nvidia8400gs via a converter to a vga monitor =>
no probs....avwizard picked it up ok & I was able to play to such an extent that I decided to  move to semi-production mode.
   I then connected to my Sharp Acquos with a dvi to hdmi cable, i.e on same connector, and restarted.All through kubuntu splash screen tv reported 1080p @ 50Hz, but nothing showed once avwizard started-  'No worries',  thought I, 'use the keyboard', which resulted in the problem.....
   No matter what key I pressed the tv reports 1080p @60 Hz....incompatible signal and the wizard resets (i assume)  and allows another keypress.
  The M/B is a gigabyte  ga-g33m-s2h with onboard intel graphics,and bios is set to "enable if no external PEG"    (no disable option)........ I tried adding BusId PCI:01:00.0  (as reported by lspci )in device section of xorg.conf  ..... => "unable to start x " error...... that point  I connected tv via vga ,rebooted, ran avwizard , and evrything ok @720p@ 60Hz

(1080p@50 Hz was no problem at all under 0710rc2)

SO ..... if anyone has any ideas on how to utilise hdmi@1080p@50Hz,  it would be greatly appreciated,

I've not had a system working sufficiently well to actually use the 1 I bought from you yet do I now assume that it won't work and return for a refund ?

BTW is it a proper use of the forum to do your product research like this ?

is there a way to download the present release and capture it on another machine locally, then use it for reinstalls ?........


BTW the 3rd post was intended (note smileys) as a recognition of posde's carefull avoidance of a specific time frame, and a  ;) at     
Well, I think I estimated it quite nicely...

 ::)      if       (27th june)  was start date for  the waiting period, and 51% is a majority, then the  implied expected  beta would appear on or around   25th november

posde ,

thanks for quick response, any ball park estimate ?

   ;D    "Looking at the Roadmap, I am positive that the majority of the waiting period for beta is over."     ;D

Hi all ,
please don't misconstrue this as any kind of flame bait /criticism/hurry up

BUT, given that the current download size and the time involved is quite heavy, (and screw ups necessitating reinstalls seem to be fairly common)... IF a dvd installer,  ie beta is still a fair way off (?).....
would it  not be possible to issue a 'pre beta basic install dvd iso'   ? reinstalling would be so much quicker /less intimidating and more attractive for less skilled users,

thanks to all involved for the  immense effort so far,


Hi all,
EDIT..........have just reinstalled and all seems ok so page when fully setup

I've just received an AT3N7A-I  (brilliant delvery service from BTW) and I'm trying  to use it as a Hybrid on 0810..latest   20090908

FYI,       there is no speaker connector / motherboard sound during boot/av wizard setup
           I struggled  with video drivers, (av wizard set it up as vesa,) until I managed to get 185.14 x from Avenard .....NB   webadmin /media dir. / hardware accel => opengl
...........bluetooth onboard not operational as yet com header on board

          As yet no sound  ,but am about to upgrade alsa to .20 (nb handbook appears to be wrong ..stereo output is black connector, middle left hand on rear plate) far it's taken 11 solid hours.....But  most of that was my ignorance of cli

Issues.? .1/   normal menu bar but no TV ..Video...Audio ..Manage Drives  buttons,
                  But- a floor plan button on every category   (ui2 overlay)
                  cd/dvd's play  ok with sound (!) on insertion of disk
             2/ getting from kde to orbiter still suffers from timeout problem, could the fix be setup as the default from install ?

             3/ could alsa .20/avenard improvements be rolled in as  part of install ?  (is there a blow by blow howto anywhere for alsa ? )

             4/ if I leave firefox running in kde, I then can't access webadmin from orbiter and vice versa

             5/ i've set synaptic as per avenard website and  (even tho I somehow managed to install 185.xx from there )  but get errors  and can't update their package lists, except for  1/  , my few problems are minor , I'm sure anyone with a little skill would have this board  running in no time at all,

any advice would be appreciated,



Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Google Wave
« on: August 28, 2009, 09:44:04 pm »
Hi all,

1)use by devs: instead of irc ......keeps a searchable record,which could easily be wikified
                     instant collaboration on code
                     ease of bug tracking/feature/design collaboration
                     template submission/discussion/editing/ approval
                     easy &clear presentation of polls / feature requests /donation lists
           amalgamation and simplification of all community aspects (wiki , forum , irc, submissions,bugs)
           simplified admin
          all fully searchable
         the instant translation tool on it's own would surely broaden the user base  by making everything more welcoming and inclusive

2) within lmce - Family whiteboard /planner/blog
                     --"easy" incorporation of android and apple phones ?

In short , imho, this could be a real  benefit to the community, and to lmce (the 'product')


Hi  colin ,
if I understand you correctly,I think you could achieve this (outside of lmce) through a spa 3102 dial plan ,but I've not seen a cell plan giving free calls to a landline , so you would still have the cell->home charge.

However,if you were on a cell plan which was free to  other cells on  your own provider then you could get a  home  gsm gateway,(similar to  ) another sim  (which I seem to recall either nite man or bulek mentioning doing about a year ago) to get the call into asterisk , and then forward the call, thro' your sip provider.Seems to be an expensive way to save money tho
