Anne, if I were you, I'd rather go with 8.10 instead of 7.10...7.10 is completely obsolote. Just think about TV-cards for example...most of that stuff is pnp in 8.10, but requires a lot of manual work in 7.10...its just not worth it.
Download the latest snapshot and you're good to go.

perhaps you're looking at it from the wrong perspective. if you want to use lmce, you have to some degree play by its rules. lmce can only find and incorporate your media, if you give it enough control about it- hence it needs to be dhcp for all the devices connected to it. So, if you think its not "fit" enough for "productive system" in your home, whats keeping you from having two separate networks for the time being...one to familiarize and test lmce and the other one for your everyday use. Once you figured lmce out for yourself, you can always make the switch. In the end, you have to find out for yourself, if lmce is for you or not. I know Thom seems to be very harsh in his answers, but try to see his point too- very, very few developers...and lots of demands on the software, some reasonable, some not.
I'm using this system since 7.10 and I wouldn't ever trade it for anything else, though I'm not a linux geek myself.
Perhaps, if you only want a media device, as you said, you should explore other things like xbmc or mythbuntu first and see, if they give you, what you want. Linuxmce is really so much more than just a media-device... in a way the "mce" doesn't really do the system justice and maybe is sometimes a bit misleading.
Look and all the functionality of it, and then think about all the things, you don't want to use..then think, if its really for you.
If you have questions about how to get the system going in a proper way, there are lots of  competent and helpful people around, who will be happy to help you

its been quite a while with this one...I eventually got a asrock330 -ion based. I think however in the end I did get it running...like I said, it's been a while since then.

it seems there is a pattern of alternation here....every second boot, the disk is gone...every other boot its there. It doesn't really make any sense to me

so, do you have any pointers for me, how I get rid of this problem? So far hardware seems not to be the issue. When I log on to the MD the disk is there and so are the files. I ran some diagnostics and the disk is also good. It seems to me, that somehow Linuxmce is losing the disk, because usually after starting the MD I'm being asked to reload the router, because I added or removed something....

I don't know what is being used to share those files....only thing I know is, that now on my newly installed MD the problem is back....

So far the only part where vdpau is not yet fully supported is mplayer, which- if I'm not mistaken- is only used for m2ts-files. Xine as well as mythtv work well with vdpau. You will notice the difference when you play HD-content.

As for the tearing, it is my understanding that here nvidia is at fault, because this seems to be a long standing bug in their drivers. So I don't think you will have much success in having alphablending enabled and no tearing.

no, I didn't really get it resolved. I scrapped the MD and made a new one. So far its working, but I don't know if it will hold. For me this whole problem popped up, when I went on vacation for two weeks and left the core running. When I came back the disk in the md wasn't showing anymore. I inquired here in the forum about it and was told I should just reboot the md and the updatemedia daemon will find it again, which in my case it didn't. I then went on to rebuild the image and ended up scrapping that MD too and made a new one. Then after a while the abovementioned problem surfaced and I ended up booting the MD and then immediately rebooting it again to have access to the files there. I already opened a ticket for that : http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/840

vdpau is responsible for hardware acceleration in video decoding, so its generally a good idea to have it running. as for the lines in your movies, thats called "tearing" and as far as I know its happening with alphablending activated for the ui. Instead use overlay, which doesn't look quite as fancy, but gives you better readability for the menus...and of course gets rid of the tearing.

Sorry for the delay...I had a little less time at my hands for a while, but here you got some filenames:
Star.Trek.Enterprise.2x02.Carbon.Creek.avi
Paradox.1x01.avi
Two.And.A.Half.Men.2x03.A.Bag.Full.Of.Jawea.avi

just a few examples.

this looks pretty cool...if it was working with Linuxmce, it would be perfect..

check this out: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Web_Orbiter

you have to follow the steps detailed under SETUP, since this will give you the Proxy Orbiter. You should check the config of the Proxy Orbiter for the Listening Port- thats the one you have to put in the ini-file.
if you followed the WIKI, as you said, then you should copy the complete arm directory to your SD, turn the Wifi of your cell on and start the orbiter. Also set the png quality to 100 as mentioned earlier here.

Users / can't access files on MD
« on: October 12, 2010, 06:59:53 pm »
I have an issue with my MD: I can only access the files on the disk there, if I reboot the MD, even if its just started.
Usually when going to bed, I shut this MD down, when I want to watch TV, or a movie, I turn it back on...that worked flawlessly without a problem
Now however, I start the MD..TV is nice, watching movies is okay, but for example if I want to access the files on my MD, I have to reboot it and only then I can see whats there.I could let it stay like that for days and the files won't show up, stopping and starting the mediaupdate daemon via webadmin doesn't do anything.
How can I check this out?
