Users / Re: Which VOIP provider in the UK works with LMCE?
« on: November 24, 2011, 12:38:54 pm »
Hi Matt,

I have an alternative suggestion for you! I have a nearly identical setup as you with the exception of a happy wife and my C475IP on the external network.

I use for all outgoing calls and my local number for incoming calls. We have 4 phones spread around and I don't see the advantage of having them linked to lmce.

With voipcheap I pay £12.50 (I think) which gives me 90 days of free calls (except mobiles which are around 3.5p/pm) after which time my credit is slowly used up at very low rates. I have the credit automatically top up when the balance drops below £1 and voila .... 90 more free days. We're not big phone users and our £12.50 lasts us over 5 months.

Because the phone is attached to our virgin router it never goes down and always just works. Including multiple outgoing/incoming calls at the same time.

Just attach the C475IP to your external router and forward the relevant ports to the phones IP address. I know this doesn't strictly answer your question but I think it will solve your problem!

Installation issues / Re: Help needed on reliable sources.list on LMCE 8.10

Hi Roman,

I think it is the same as listed on the wiki page under 'Internet Installation':

Having said that I do get the same error messages, but it doesn't seem to cause any problems for me.

Users / Forum search results by date [SOLVED]
« on: November 18, 2011, 12:09:05 pm »
Hi Guys,

I was just about to ask how to search the forum with results ordered by most recent first as older posts are becoming less relevant as newer versions fix most old thread topics. I always use the forum search box near the top of the page.
I have just found the answer .... use the advanced search in the top left menu and select 'most recent topics first' in the 'search order' dropdown.

I searched the forum for threads about the search results and how to order by date, but with no relevant results (how ironic). I am posting this so that anyone searching the forum for the same thing will find this.

keywords for search:
latest, newest, old, outdated, irrelevant, up to date, result, howto, thread, post, posts, ordering, sort, sorted

Developers / Eventlircd
« on: October 30, 2011, 01:17:38 am »
Hi guys,

In addition to lmce I use yavdr for standalone DVB-S2 Satellite TV. They just released the new 0.4 version (64bit only) which implements something called eventlircd for enhanced plug and play of remotes.

I mention this because on this latest yavdr it seems that every button on my Gyration 3101 is recognised ootb including the coloured buttons at the bottom.

I am not a developer but I was impressed with how it works. Thought it might be of interest.
Sorry if this is old news.

Users / Re: apt-get update fails on radvd.conf line 2
« on: October 30, 2011, 12:34:18 am »
I also had this problem. I followed these instructions and removed the blank radvd.conf file and the install completed but I got the message radvd would not be started because of the missing conf file.

Don't think this is system critical though.

Thanks guys.

I will leave the gnat in search of bigger prey!

Maybe just rebuilding the md in question will squash the glitches.

I changed the line in sources.list to intrepid. Then ran:
Code: [Select]
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade

There was a pluto-system-database upgrade available.

Users / CPU usage of generic serial device
« on: October 29, 2011, 02:11:18 pm »
Hi Guys,

I've been trying to diagnose why my video media keeps freezing for a couple of seconds then quickly catching up again on my MD. This happens at regular 1-2 minute intervals.

I noticed on all my MDs that when I run 'top' I see 'Generic_Serial_' at the top of the list using 14% cpu. If I have more than one attached AV device then there are two of these (so 28% cpu). My devices are an LG TV and a Denon amp.

Question is ... Is This Normal? That is a lot of CPU for something that is not in use 99.99% of the time. It is more CPU than xine player when watching videos.

I'm running 0810 updated within the last two weeks. VDPAU enabled on my acer revo md (the one that skips).

There is a thread about changing the gyration codes here:,11871.msg83769.html#msg83769

Not sure if this is your problem.

Same as this thread I believe:,12088.msg84950.html#msg84950

Don't upgrade!

cfernandes has noticed a lucid entry in the sources.list.
deb lucid  main multiverse

If I change the lucid entry to intrepid I get:
Code: [Select]
root@dcerouter:~# apt-get upgrade -f

I'm seeing similar with 596 upgraded and 471 held back. Not going to upgrade yet ... very nervous!


Users / Re: News: Linuxmce 0810 Final is released
« on: September 16, 2011, 10:56:06 pm »
Installed for the first time in around a year using this DVD. Just been stuck with a beta from last year.

Smoothest installation ever. Mostly detected and setup automatically. I was expecting a challenge but was amazed how it all just worked.

Devs and community you are the best.

Just to confirm ..... Posde's advice worked for me with an acer revo on lmce 810 final.

Yes Matt, that's the behaviour I've seen.
