Installation issues / dhcp not working properly?
« on: January 19, 2013, 09:01:20 am »
I would like to use DHCP to get a IP address from my ISP since unfortunately I cannot get a fixed IP address. However when I turn on dhcp (Advanced > Network > Network settings > 1. External network card eth0, IP4: DHCP) I get as the first nameserver (Nameserver #1:)  which stops dns to function properly. LMCE also passes the on to the clients connected so they also get a faulty dns configuration. In trac it is set as a 'feature request' ( ) but shouldnt dhcp not be able to break lmce since its such a basic requirement?

Users / Re: How big of a donation?
« on: May 04, 2012, 12:26:03 pm »
I suppose he's wiling to donate but wants to know what can be done for a specified amount. I suppose that once it gets above $100K then people might be considering doing it full time for a while. I have no idea how the money is spend. Maybe it is wise to specify how much you would be willing to donate and have the devs make a proposal what they can reasonably promise to finish in x amount of time for that amount.

Is VDR already distributed? If not it is no valid replacement on a distributed system.... I agree that current mythtv is not that stable. maybe we have more luck when 1204 comes out... can't wait ;-)

Installation issues / cannot get AVWizzard on hybrid on 1004
« on: February 20, 2012, 11:34:38 pm »

I am trying to get the AVWizard to config my hybrid running 1004 and a GT 520 (I tried on a ION with same results). I updated to the latest current nvidia drivers but when I reboot with the AVWizzard I get a 'Failed to setup X'. When I copy the xorg.conf.pluto.avwizard  to xorg.conf, comment out the connected monitor:
Code: [Select]
#       Option          "ConnectedMonitor" "CRT"
and change the resolution:
Code: [Select]
       SubSection "Display"
                Modes           "1920x1080"
                Virtual         1920 1080
and then reboot I get X properly.

Anyone a suggestion on how to get the AVWizzard to also start properly? I tried changing some stuff in the AVWizzard scripts but up till now no success. Any help appreciated!

Users / Re: Running a script prior to Myth Backend start

Don't hack into existing scripts if it is not necessary. That's the nice thing about upstart that you can put a script before something else without touching it.

As you can see in my script I have also some sleeps etc. Actually I cleaned it up a bit and there was also a 'sleep 30s' in the post-start script to be sure that the adapters are up and running before mythtv-backend get's started. That will do the trick.

Can I add an exec line before that to execute a program first with a quick sleep inbetween?
as you can see I do the same in the pre-script code. just replace that with the items you want done before. the same applies for the post script (or remove it).

Also how do I make the system run that script?
it get's run automatically before mythtv-backend gets started. that's what the 'start on starting mythtv-backend' line is all about.

Create a script in /etc/init/

On the exec line you put the command you want to run.

Code: [Select]
# sasc-ng service

description     "sasc-ng"
author          "espe"

start on starting mythtv-backend
stop on starting shutdown


pre-start script
        rm -rf /usr/local/etc/ecm.cache
        echo `date +%s` > /tmp/MythTvInitialFillDBRun
        echo `date` "sasc init" >> /tmp/sasc-start
        sleep 8s

        insmod /root/sc/contrib/sasc-ng/dvbloopback.ko num_adapters=2
        sleep 2s

end script

exec   /root/sc/contrib/sasc-ng/sasc-ng -j 0:2 -j 1:3  --cam-budget --cam-dir /usr/local/etc/ --sid-filt 12 --sid-allpid --sid-nocache --buffer 8M --pidfile /var/run/ --log /var/log/sasc-ng.log

post-start script
        echo `date` "sasc init post pre sleep" >> /tmp/sasc-start
end script

post-stop script
        rmmod dvbloopback
end script

Users / Re: hope for blu-ray afterall..
« on: January 14, 2012, 01:16:55 pm »
Sorry but this makes no sense to me. If you say LMCE does not and will not support blu-ray it is even drawing more attention. Since then you force people who want to play HD to download the contents (if they want to stick to lmce as the playback device). And anno 2012 if you install lmce you are using state of the art home solution you are not gonna settle for SD.

I had the same problem after an apt-get dist-upgrade and the above did not solve it. As a quick solution I moved the kde init file:

sudo mv /etc/init/kdm.conf /root/

not a pretty one but at least lmce showed again ;-)

Installation issues / Re: drivers for nvidia gt520
« on: November 20, 2011, 03:52:19 pm »
the resolution I changed was directly manually for the xorg.conf. not the one for the avwizard . that tries 640 by default. Where did you set the default resolution for the avwizard?

Hmmm I wonder if it is version or install related. It is a fresh install of 1004. The hardware was working with 1004 (I changed the mainboard and graphics card and after installing the 285 version it was running without problems but I don't know if I ever used the AVWizard). Now with xorg.conf manually set to 1920x1080 I get X but I just cannot get into AVWizard to set up everything properly. AVWizard seems to be using the correct driver:

Code: [Select]
$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf.pluto.avwizard |grep Driver
    Driver         "mouse"
    Driver         "kbd"
    Driver         "nvidia"

what did you put in the file? I currently have
Code: [Select]
$ cat /usr/pluto/bin/

The packages that I have installed are:
Code: [Select]
$ sudo dpkg --get-selections |grep -i nvidia
nvidia-current                                  install
nvidia-current-modaliases                       install
nvidia-glx-260                                  deinstall
nvidia-settings                                 install

I saw that I still had some old versions installed:
Code: [Select]
$ apt-show-versions |grep nvidia
nvidia-current/lucid uptodate 285.05.09-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1
nvidia-current-modaliases/lucid upgradeable from 195.36.24-0ubuntu1~10.04.1 to 285.05.09-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1
nvidia-settings/lucid upgradeable from 195.36.08-0ubuntu2 to 285.05.09-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1

which I upgraded with: sudo apt-get upgrade nvidia-current-modaliases

now it seems ok:
Code: [Select]
$ apt-show-versions |grep nvidia
nvidia-current/lucid uptodate 285.05.09-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1
nvidia-current-modaliases/lucid uptodate 285.05.09-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1
nvidia-settings/lucid uptodate 285.05.09-0ubuntu1~lucid~xup1

Still no AVWizard though.

any more suggestions?

Installation issues / Re: drivers for nvidia gt520
« on: November 19, 2011, 11:36:21 pm »
are you getting an error "Failed to start X"? or is X starting but nothing else happens?
I get a blue console screen with:
Failed to setup X
If getting an error, check to see that the "Driver" line in /etc/X11/xorg.conf is "nvidia" and not 'nv' or other.
the driver is "nvidia". When I manually change the xorg.cond to 1920x1080 I get X on normal boot but I need to run AVWizard to configure the MD properly.

any ideas?

Is this also suppose to work on the avwizard? I try to install a hybrid and avwizard does not start. I installed the newer nvidia drivers with:

Code: [Select]
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current

all suggestions are welcome

I noticed that playing h264 content was still bad quality (white and red area's mainly in what had to be dark black). I increased the vmalloc to 512MB. now it does not show those strange collors anymore however sometimes the movie halts and then plays the next few seconds very fast.

Any suggestions?
