I'm not sure where to put this, and I apologize if this is mis-posted. This is the only open source related forum I post in. I was wondering if anyone knew of a generic Free software foundation, or GNU forum on the internet?

Thank you for your time


Installation issues / Need HELP badly!!!
« on: December 12, 2008, 11:15:11 pm »
Okay I was just going through some reciepits, I started trying to get Linux MCE to work back in July.

Motheraboard #1. ASUS P5N-MX

          it installed okay and then hung up after a few days. I posted and people said "alot of us have no stablity problems, must be your mb." so we bought mb #2 from a reccomendatino from the wiki.

Motherboard #2  Asus P5N-E-SLI
           that installed okay but again 2 days, and oops there goes Linux MCE again down and have to restart to get it to come back up. Once again I think okay must be my MB, so I post here and I get a response that says "Here's the uptime from our demo machine it's been on forever" natrually my questino is well what motherbarod is that, the reply was something to the effect (and i"m paraphrasing) "We had those specifically designed for us you can't really BUY them.". so oh well onto motherbaord 3 which since that guy used and MSI I figured I'd give them a try.

Motherboard #3 MSI K9N2GM
          This time we went down the latter, that didn't even install

Motherboard #4 MSI Media Live again from the wiki someone said it worked no problem
          that mb came in the mail today, installed it and it wouldn't install either.

So now somewhere between 500 - 800 dollars in I'm asking yet again, is there anyone, anywhere, for ANY amount of money, that can recommend a motherboard, (THAT I CAN PURCHASE FROM that I can install in my computer, put the Linux MCE 0710 disk in, install it, and use it for more than 2 days? Does such a motherboard exist? I really do appreciate everyon'es help but I think I'm at the end of my rope, I DO have patients, but I feel this is a little bit ridiculous. As I've said before, if I am going to buy a motherboard that will be ONLY for linux MCE then I want it to work OUT OF THE BOX, I should be able to send my grandma downstairs to install the thing. I've got to believe someone out there has a setup that works, would you PLEASE be kind enough to share the model number?.

Installation issues / ASUS P5N7A-VM LGA 775 WIll it work?

I'm curious, does anyone have this motherboard, if I am going to buy a MB specifically for a MediaCenter, and that MC will only be running LINUX MCE it seems foolish to buy anything that "Will work out of the box and no problems". Is anyone using this board, or another board that works out of the box as a Hybrid?

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Installation issues / Hangs up after 2 days!!

Everything in my media center works great. But after about 2 days of it being on, even if it isn't doing anything, it hangs up. Any suggestions?

Installation issues / Haup. 350 Sound very low
« on: July 18, 2008, 10:18:06 am »
My volume for my MP3 playback is excellent, but the playback for my Haup tv card is lower, not to the point where I can't hear it it's usable, but I'm wondering, I don't currently  have a separate sound card, just the one that came with the motherboard. It only has to PCI slots, one is used for my video card the other for the TV tuner, so my question. Do I replace the motherboard to get one with enough PCI slots so that I can add a good sound card, OR do I replace the 350 if so is there another TV tuner that is as plug and play as the 350.

Thank you
