Installation issues / Re: dhcp not working properly?
« on: January 22, 2013, 09:36:48 am »
I don't have a modem, just internet cable directly into my core and on the other nic I have my local network (basic setup I suppose). The ISP IS sending me the localhost address since this is in the leasefile:
option domain-name-servers,,;

This works on a client and also on a normal router but LMCE uses the as the main dns server so all dns stops working. A simple filter there would do I suppose but I have no idea where to add that properly.

any suggestions?

Users / stream desktop audio to lmce
« on: January 22, 2013, 09:33:00 am »
Is there an easy (lmce) way to stream the same audio output on my desktop (ubuntu) to linuxmce so I can play that on md's (in sync preferably)

 - name
 - resolution
 - room
do not seem to be stored in the webadmin.

what would be nice is if you could select the feedback type after a selection (the other orbiter gave vibration). It also would be nice if the id of the device would be displayed on the settings page.

nicely done again.

If what I did is the correct way to count it.

I have however moved a lot of files manually and some on multiple locations. Could it be that LinuxMCE is still storing old locations and that way have duplicate entries? If so what would be the best way to get rid of the stale entries?

I run on a hybrid with ui2 (no transparency) on an old amd be-2400 with a SSD and a NAS. I don't think my library is that big. How to check that. Doing a count on the file table gave me:
Code: [Select]
mysql> select count(*) from File;
| count(*) |
|   296213 |

So if that is 296K compared you the 15K you mentioned then it is big. Not much I can do?

I assume those changes made to speed things up would be included automatically when running 'apt-get upgrade' or are manual actions required?

When I select Video or Audio in an orbiter it takes very long for the results to show (more then 10 seconds) and then scrolling through the results is also very slow. Is this normal behavior, am I missing some optimizations, should one manually create indexes or is there something else I can do to improve this?


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 ;-)
