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.

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?

1339
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.

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.

Done :-)

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

Thank you both for your replies, it's much appreciated.

I am very much aware of the "diversity" model fiasco, and rang Hauppauge the other day to check it out (as I thought this was a diversity model). The chap on the phone assured me it was not. "But it's a 'TD' and not a 'T'", I said - no, it's not a diversity. "But it has 2 antennas" - no, the second one is a dummy, only 'ANT1' is actually connected to anything! Obviously, I took this all with a pinch of salt.

I've been having another problem since I rebuilt my core (last motherboard fried, so new build had replacement motherboard, and this new TV card) - when starting the machine, it would freeze on either the very first boot screen, the grub screen, or the kubunutu loading screen (seemed to do something different every time). Anyway, moments ago I removed the NOVA-TD-500, and the core starts up fine.

So indulis, I'm sorry you went to the trouble of posting these instructions for me, but I think I'm going to get rid of the card and try and get hold of the older version that I already have. Hopefully Hauppauge will swap it for me.

Thank you both again.

Installation issues / Hauppauge Nova-TD-500 installation issue
« on: November 23, 2008, 02:38:53 pm »
Hello All,

I am having a problem with the installation of my new Nova-TD-500 DVB card in my core, in that it is not recognised by MythTV.

I already have a Nova-T-500 installed in my core, working no problem (apart from the dreaded "USB disconnect issue - http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=5593.0). When I decided to buy another, I received the Nova-TD-500 in a Nova-T-500 box.

According to http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV_Nova-T_500_PCI#Installing the newer Nova-TD-500 card is recognised "out of the box" by the upcoming Ubuntu Linux 8.10 release (this also includes Mythbuntu 8.10), so I am assuming that using LinuxMCE 0710 is going to cause a problem.

Does anybody know of a fix for me to get this newer card working under 0710 please? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks for your replies Andrew - you always make sense!

May I say that I think the Nova-T-500 is really good, it's just this one issue that's bugging me.

Hope we see a solution to this problem at some point in the future.

Btw, unlike the other two chaps, "quick reload router" doesn't appear to fix it - I have to do a proper restart of the core. Just though I'd add that in case it's relevant.

But I'm not using a USB card, it's a PCI one - does the issue remain the same?
