Installation issues / orbiter remote for TV- cannot stop
« on: December 22, 2008, 12:35:27 pm »
Hello friends,

yesterday I put a WINTV Nova-HD-S2 in my box. I followed the wiki to set it up with VDR. Initially I had some problems with the firmware, but I finally got it all to work. Now the only problem I have is, that I cannot stop the TV-playback. Pressing Power on the remote doesn't work and tapping the off-button on the orbiter-remote doesn't work either. So far the only way to stop it is to start playing a movie.

edit: I did have some problems with the scanning. I downloaded the mentioned ini-file and tried to scan. I always got parsing-errors for every entry in the ini-file. So I checked and found a channels.conf for Astra-Satelittes. However I would like to scan myself.

I am still trying to figure some things out, after I made my initial installation of far things are working nicely, except I have two issues:
1. after booting the core, I cannot access my shares anymore. I always get access denied. If I go to the adminpage for the users, then I just click on save and I can access my shares without, are my settings not correctly saved, or not correctly loaded?
2. I bought a USB infrared dongle, which is at least recognized in ubuntu, but so far I seem to have trouble getting it to work. As far as I found out it is made by a company called Kingsun and the model is a KS-959. Is there anyone who can shed some light on how I could get it going?
So far this was the only device I could find here...except, I found another one, that still uses a serial connection, but I figured USB would be better.

Installation issues / dhcp problem with DVD-Install

Hello guys,
this week I tried the first time to get linuxmce running. Up until now I've been running my server with Suse, but I figured LMCE would be my thing. I have my server with two nics, one connected to my DSL-Modem (realy only modem, not a router) and the other one to my switch, where my other two computers are attached. Both my workstations run vista64.
With my Suse-setup its all business as usual. However the LMCE doesn't give any of them IPs. I did the installation with the DVD, which is supposed to be more or less plug and play. After some reading around I also found out, how to get my DSL-connection running, if only until the next reboot. So the core at least has access to the internet.
I went to the KDE-Desktop to check if the DHCP-server is even running, but when I checked in the Systemservices there were actually a lot of services, including DHCP3-server and Bind, who were not running, and wouldn't be started. So I don't know if LMCE's management of those services is somehow hidden from the KDE-Desktop or not.

So far my biggest problem is to get my workstations online again. I did try to put a fixed IP on one of my computers, but I still couldn't connect. So unless someone has some inspiration for me, I guess I'll have to wait for the next release.

Users / zhis would be a cool MD

Feature requests & roadmap / twinview out of the box
« on: April 27, 2008, 08:56:05 pm »
I would like to setup a linuxmce box which controls my projector and a big TFT monitor as a TV-replacement. Both devices would be connected to the DVI-Ports of my graphicscard (geforce 7600gt) My system would be a hybrid, since as of now I don't want to use a separate Media Director for either the projector or the TFT. So far I was told, that linuxmce does not support twinview out of the box, but it would make things a lot easier I guess.

Users / dualview?

I am preparing to give Linuxmce a try. So far I would like to use a hybrid system. I would hook up my soundsystem to the box, which shouldn't be a problem. However I would also connect my projector via DVI on one port and a monitor via DVI to the other port of my graphicscard. The projector has a native resolution of 1024x768 and the monitor (Viewsonic VX2835wm) has 1900x1200. Primarily I want to use the monitor as a TV-replacement. In my understanding they should be working with their native resolutions. So I'm wondering if Linuxmce is able to discover and use the displays, if they are not present all the time, since I will switch them off, if not in use.
