Users / apt-get upgrade problems
« on: February 15, 2011, 12:26:12 am »
After a PING backup I did the latest apt-get update and upgrade yesterday. I've not done one for months. It downloaded well over 400MB.

I was amazed to see that my HVR 2000 got detected and added. However I have tried ... but failed to capture with it. I also noticed that my usb to rs232 adapters were detected but wasn't sure whether or not to allow lmce to control them. I have tried both ways!

Since then all my rs232 controlled devices have stopped working (LG TVs and Denon amp).

Anyone experienced this? Should I give up and go back to my backup?

Users / Mapping Key Combos
« on: October 13, 2010, 01:16:26 am »
I'm trying to write a template for a remote that emits keyboard key combos on a single key press:
e.g. ctrl + alt + L (made up but you get the idea)

Is there a way to map these combinations to a lmce command using #59 config and #60 mapping?


Users / Help - IP Camera, Motion Wrapper and ruby pan/tilt commands
« on: October 11, 2010, 01:38:52 am »
I'm currently trying to create an IP camera template that can be:

1. Controlled using the on screen pan/tilt buttons
2. Used by motion to capture movement/trigger alarms etc

Has anyone succeeded in doing both? Is this even possible?

So far I have acheived number 1 based on the Panasonic IP camera template but I cannot create this device as a child of motion wrapper.

I have acheived number 2 using the 'Generic Motion IP Camera' template but this does not implement pan/tilt commands.
Any ideas?

Users / [SOLVED] Can't play music
« on: August 09, 2010, 12:52:19 am »
Just did a fresh install from snapshot. Copied mp3s and dvds etc back across the network to the internal hdd from my network backup.

Mostly OK but I have a weird problem. Videos are fine but my core/mds crash if I select audio and then any artist. The screen goes black as if I've clicked 'quick reload router' and the router reloads.

Any suggestions?

Installation issues / Dependancy problems? Net-Install
« on: August 07, 2010, 03:35:51 pm »
Just did a net install (I've never had any luck with the DVD install).

After running ./ I get a dpkg error Exit code 100 and lots of pluto packages are unconfigured.

I tried apt-get install -f but I now get:
dpkg returned an error code (1)
and the above list of unconfigured packages.

Any suggestions?

Users / VDPAU Xine Deinterlacing
« on: July 04, 2010, 12:24:31 pm »
When playing DVDs linuxmce uses xine. I have nvidia ion mds which can utilise VDPAU hardware acceleration.

Is it possible to enable deinterlacing in xine rather than in the web admin >> media director page? Am I right in thinking xine could use hardware acceleration to deinterlace rather than cpu cycles?


Users / MTS video files
« on: June 25, 2010, 01:10:32 pm »
My panasonic HD camcorder records avchd files (mts). Linuxmce doesn't list these files under the video menu. Is there a way to convert these files into something else?

I tried m2ts extension and they appear in the menu but there is a black screen when played.
Any suggestions?

Users / Existing Raid 5 Array
« on: June 18, 2010, 06:29:41 pm »
I've just done a clean net install of 0810.

I have a 3 disk Raid 5 array in the core (from my last 0810 installation) but it hasn't been discovered. What should happen? I have now gone into the web admin and created a new array and added my three drives ... but I don't want to wipe the existing data so I haven't clicked 'create RAID array'.

I've had my fingers burned with raid before, so any advice would be appreciated.

Users / MythTV fails from lmce (but works from kubuntu) on MD
« on: June 17, 2010, 12:22:35 am »
As the title says ... my MDs don't correctly launch mythtv (version 0.23) from within lmce BUT it works fine when launched from the kubuntu desktop on the MD.

If I launch from lmce I just see the time and date in the bottom right corner.

How can I trouble shoot this? Any suggestions?

"Mythtv database has newer tv schema (1254) then expected (1244)"

Running mythtv 0.23 on the core. Had to dist-upgrade to complete the upgrade. Now getting this message on the md. Are there still problems with this version of mythtv on the mds? Do I need to rerun /usr/pluto/bin/ and rebuild?
Any ideas?

Users / mythtv upgrade to 0.23
« on: May 28, 2010, 01:47:06 am »
After removing the mythtv 0.22 pin references from the preferences file I get the following huge downgrade. Adding them back I see 0 packages need changing.

Is this normal?

Users / DHCP leases Foscam IP camera problem
« on: May 18, 2010, 12:12:27 am »
I'm testing out the foscam ip cameras from ebay and I've run into a problem. I have three cameras added children of motion wrapper. They have all appeared in the dhcp leases page with static addresses and work well.

I added the final outdoor camera, which works ok when tested on the external network. It appeared briefly in the dhcp leases as an active dhcp lease when plugged into the internal network. I used these details to add it under motion wrapper and it worked ..... for a while.

The camera has not appeared as a static dhcp entry and lmce loses contact with the camera after a few minutes. I have to disconnect/reconnect the network cable for it to reappear and the device isn't listed in the dhcp table at all.

Anyone experienced this?

Users / Mythtv recordings not in videos
« on: May 14, 2010, 12:24:49 am »
My recent recordings via mythtv are accessible in mythweb but are not visible under videos. This has been for around a week now.

Anyone know how to fix this?

Users / [SOLVED] Deinterlacing with VDPAU in Mythtv (nvidia ION)
« on: May 12, 2010, 05:53:33 pm »
Should I set up deinterlacing in mythtv frontend?

I was under the impression that setting deinterlacing in web admin was all that was required. Is this still the case? I'm seeing lots of lines in mythtv.

Users / Done Rip ... Wrong!
« on: May 12, 2010, 02:53:25 pm »
There is a 'done rip' icon and the button is disabled for a cd I have been trying to rip.

To recreate:
Ripped 1st time:
noticed it was ripped as ogg. Went into web admin and deleted album folder then artist folder completely. Resynchronised.
In web admin set default cd rip as mp3.
Ripped 2nd time:
noticed it had ripped as ogg again (didn't reload router). I stopped rip at 90% in pending tasks. Went into web admin and deleted artist folder completely. Resynchronised. Reloaded router.

Now I cannot rip the cd because the rip button is disabled for this cd and says 'done rip'. I was surprised to see that the artist folder was still listed in the database despite being deleted in web admin.

If a folder is deleted in web admin then all db entries beneath it should be too.... surely?

I Clicked on 'Delete ALL missing files from database'. This didn't work either.

Have resynchronised, rebooted, tried everything I know.

No idea what to do. The 'done rip' idea is nice but at this point it has cost me a lot of time.
Anyone got any ideas?
