Users / Re: Best Mainboard for hybrid device???
« on: March 18, 2009, 02:02:53 pm »
I have always got on quite well with MSI mobos. I think that their performance for the amount they cost is fantastic. Don't think I've ever spent more than £35 on one (mATX versions anyway), and have never had a problem.

Users / Re: More info on the tearing problem
« on: February 20, 2009, 09:54:00 am »
Is there any possibility at all that the tearing issue is a PCIe problem? Does everybody who is having the problem use a PCIe card? I mention this because I have the dreaded tearing as well, but only with my PICe nVidia card. My old hybrid had an AGP nVidia, and it worked perfectly.

Am I right in saying that the WebDT's onscreen keyboard can be used for web browsing, etc? Eliminating the need for a seperate keyboard? If I invested in a WebDT, could I also get rid of my gyro mouse?

I have one of these http://www.ebuyer.com/product/106486, seems to be pretty good.

Yes, VBox 2.1 handled it no problem! Cheers.

I still only have a lo interface - I'm not sure how it's working either, but it is! Boots everytime.

Thanks for your help.

Ok, I have got slightly further with this.

Currently, when booting, my virtual LMCE media director hangs on "[53.846691] e1000: eth0: e1000_watchdog: NIC Link is Up 1000 Mbps Full Duplex, Flow Control: RX" during startup. This happened a number of times from the word go; however, on one occasion, the boot process continued and "setup.sh" ran like normal. However, since restarting, it is now hanging again at the aforementioned part of starting up.

My /etc/network/interfaces currently looks like this:
Code: [Select]
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

...which looks nothing like yours, justnulling! Is all of that extra stuff necessary for this netboot in VBox to work?? I did try using that code (and replacing _USERNAME_ with my username), but "/etc/init.d/networking restart" gave me a funny error, plus I couldn't changed "eth0" to "tap1" in VBox network settings as per your suggestion.

I did, however, change "NAT" to "Host Interface" in the VBox network settings, but that was all I did to make it work (and give me the problem above!). Below those settings is a list of Host Interfaces, in which "eth0" appears (the only one).

Do I need to add something in /etc/network/interfaces? Or is there an option on the core I need to change in admin? Why on Earth would it work once, and not again?!

Any help would be much appreciated.

Users / Re: Do I have to use KDE?
« on: January 18, 2009, 02:07:19 pm »
I felt very much the same as you when I first started out with LMCE, but now I am considering going over to KDE on my main PC. So my advice would be to "put up with" KDE, in order to learn as much about it as possible. You already have Gnome on your PC, so will quickly become an expert in both :-) And then you'll be able to see the advantages and disadvantages of one over the other (and then KDE in LMCE won't bother you so much).

Welcome to the forums.

Thanks for the reply! I shall try this as soon as my new PSU arrives.

What do you mean exactly by "don't forget to set the image to boot of the network"? Is this inside VBox, or is it something I need to do to the image stored on the core?

Cheers.

1344
Hmm, unfortunately I have moved away from VMWare. Were there any special options you had to enable that I might be able to apply to VBox?

1345
Ok, cheers. Is there perhaps a file hiding somewhere that contains a list of all the TV channels, with the idea of modifying it?

If not, I could just move all of the unwanted channels to the end for now.

1346
Thanks for the reply.

Can anybody else confirm this? Not that I don't trust you sambuca!  :)

Hello All,

I have "removed" a whole host of TV channels using the Channel Editor in the MythTV Backend Setup (by unchecking the "Visible" option for each one that I do not want), and whilst the channels have removed themselves from the MythTV channel guide, they remain in the LinuxMCE channel list (which is the one that I use).

Is there something else that I have to do to remove them? Or is there another method entirely?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

I have been getting on OK with the Hauppauge Nova-T-500, have just bought a 2nd one (stay clear of the "Diversity" models though - Nova-TD-500).

What is the difference between a Hauppauge PVR-500 and a Hauppauge Nova-T-500 out of interest?

Installation issues / Network boot through VirtualBox (running in Ubuntu)
« on: November 29, 2008, 02:26:02 pm »
Does anybody know if it is possible to do a network boot through VirtualBox running in Ubuntu Intrepid? I tried setting up an "Ubuntu" OS in VB (obviously I didn't a create disk image) and tried doing the LAN option on initial start up, but it didn't work.

Does anybody have any ideas? Cheers.

Installation issues / Re: Hauppauge Nova-TD-500 installation issue

Done :-)

There are a couple of older version Nova-T-500s on eBay if anybody else is having this issue.
