Users / New LMCE sytem help
« on: January 22, 2011, 02:45:59 am »
Hello everyone I am back to setting up LMCE. I have bought a new house and I am in the process of running inner duct in the walls then pulling cat 6 to all rooms. I have a small closet I will be using for a Comm Closet. I will be buying a 24 port Gig switch(undecided on which one at this time). My plans are

  • Core (not hybrid)
  • a Large NAS
  • 5-7 Media Directors.
  • 4-5 Squeeze Boxes
  • 3 W366DT pads (unless there is something better)

Home Automation

I have spec'd out the core I am thinking about building. Going off Thom's suggestion on a server class Sys board.

  • ASUS P7F-C/4L LGA 1156 Intel 3420 ATX Quad/Dual Core
  • Intel Xeon X3430 Lynnfield 2.4GHz 8MB L3 Cache LGA 1156 95W Quad-Core Server Processor BX80605X3430
  • Western Digital VelociRaptor WD740HLFS 74GB 10000 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
  • Crucial 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM ECC Unbuffered DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600) Triple Channel Kit Server Memory Model CT3KIT25672BA1339

Looking for vesa mounted Mini-ITX atom (Any suggestions would be great).

Any help on building a serious system for my house and I do not plan on going cheap. This time I want the best hardware for the job.

Thanks all

I am back and starting work on my LMCE810 box. Would like to know if Hulu Desktop has been integrated or where it is at. I have been looking forward to this since Thom did the demo on it. Also wonder what would be the best VoIP wireless phone if anyone has been using one. Thanks look forward to finishing my LMCE system up.

Users / Adding Drives in 810 Beta
« on: October 16, 2009, 11:22:48 pm »
Are we able to add drives in the Core with beta? Either Raid or stand a lone or do we have to have a NAS setup? I haven't loaded the beta yet but was not about to add drives to my 810 alpha box. This is the only thing I am waiting on to have my system complete and start expanding my system to full integrate my house.


Users / Adding Drives in LMCE 810 Raid or not having problems
« on: October 14, 2009, 12:14:25 am »
Have recently gone to 810. I had 1 Raid 0 set-up in my 710 system. After my 810 was up and going I moved my raid over. I got LMCE web admin to see the raid, see the drives under the raid. Not able to see any files or add to. I pulled out my raid and put in my 710 box works great. After days of trying I decided to remove all my files and recreate the raid. After deleting the raid and trying to recreate I am not able to add my drives. Just not there in the drop down list. If I restart the Core it auto creates a raid 0 with the drives. Great but still not working. The raid is not online so I check that and even restart still nothing. When I go thru Samba and look at shares I see device ## as a share. Still not able to use. I have even just put 1 disk in and try to let LMCE use it. Something I see is "Raid Status 3" not sure what state that is? 0, 1, 2 or the numbers the tip tells me about. I did do a fdisk -1 forgot to keep the output before I removed the drives. It showed the Disks but stated the partitions where not usable or recognizable.

Users / New 810 system
« on: October 02, 2009, 07:16:48 pm »
Good morning everyone. I am going to build a new 810 system next week. I would like to order the parts today. I have a few questions for anyone that has been using 810 on what hardware they are using. I have had problems with hardware compatibility before and would like to have a smooth transition this time. This will be a Hybrid with no MDs as of yet. There will be 2 -3 MDs when I get everything working.

1) Motherboard - As many sata connections as possible (I could put in a PCI-X SATA II Controller Card )
Dual Nic
HDMI would be nice but not needed,
Onboard video,
Intel or AMD.
I would like to be able to install several HD-5500 cards
2) Video Card if not on the motherboard.

Any help would be great

Users / how is 810 coming along?
« on: September 06, 2009, 11:31:43 pm »
I haven't been on the boards for a while. I have been out enjoying Summer in Alaska. My Lmce box has been running great. I would like to use my new hardware and some of the new features of 810. Just curious how 810 is coming along and should I start using it.

Thanks for all the great work.

Users / Help Compressing Video Files
« on: May 03, 2009, 12:50:58 am »
I am looking for an easy solution to turn my DvD's into a more compressed format.I have hundreds of Dvd videos that I have created with menus and lots of extra stuff I do not want. When I let the Core rip them I get lots of extra. I have done some research and have tried lots of Window based programs, also I have tried some linux based programs but nothing that has wow'd me. If there is a better solution coming in 810 for this I can wait or if I have to do this on my desktop and transfer over to the core that would be great to. Any help would be great.

Users / New 810 Install Hardware Advice please :)
« on: April 21, 2009, 04:34:57 am »
Hello everyone. I am ready to start buying my hardware and load up 810. I would like some advice on the hardware for the house. I am going to start with Core and 1 MD. This will grow into about 4 MD's, and various other equipment. This is the first stage and this will be Media only. Phase 2 will be Phone and Automation and then phase 3 will be Security. I have been using 710 for about a year and love it. I have been working in the IT field for many years and can build my own or buy a set up. I have Cat 6 run in my house and have several Gig switches. Thanks in advance for any help.

Core: I want as many SATA drives internally as possible. I would like to have several internal HDTV cards, 2 Gig NIC cards onboard, Don’t care about video this will be a Core only with no monitor attached in a closet. Case doesn’t have to look good or be fancy.

MD: HDMI (would be nice but not necessary), Small, Quiet. Can be diskless, DVD preferred.

I would like a Sys board that come out of box able to be used as an MD. I have an AM2 proccessor and DDR2 Memory, and sata Drive. Any suggestions would be great.Thanks Eveyone.
