system had third sound card from Asus Multimedia audio controller: C-Media Electronics Inc CMI8788 [Oxygen HD Audio] The sound card never worked. Therefore I decided to re run the AVwizard to get the audio from HDMI from nvidia card. and that was the end of my system.

I never got passthrough the STEP 1 of the AVwizard.

here are some logs I am attaching hope that helps.

I am still playing with this,,HOping to get it back to life. while the snapshot is being downloaded.

Users / Latest i3, i5 or i7 processors hardware question.
« on: June 03, 2016, 03:54:22 am »
 I am going to upgrade my core hardwares. I am going to built on a microatx motherboard and probably choose intel i3 or i5 processor.
I know that nvidia is preferred way to for lmce.

So here is my question. Based on the fact that these modern processor with integrated graphic support, would it work with LMCE?

That way I would get hdmi video and audio out of my motherboard itself. Only have to throw in an extra  PCI ethernet card and fly off. 

I hope my question make sense. Please advise.

HI posde,

Thanks for your reply. I came across an interesting thread where people are using many methods to communicate to the GE panel. Following are the approach.
GE panel ----->  Superbus 2000 RS232 Module  ---------> arduino --------> and codes

Some are

GE panel -----> superbus 2000 RS232 module -------> RS485 ethernet converter --------> and codes

Finally someone

GE panel -----> superbus 2000 RS232 module ------> USB to serial adapter --- Raspberry pi -------> and codes

I have to admit, when it comes to programming language,, I am lost. I have no idea what they are talking about.
here is the thread I came across

I think, going through RS232 to ethernet converter is the best route to go for LMCE integration.

I will purchase the module and converter, once everything hooks up, Please guide me to get the software part work.

Hello guys,

Let me just start with, I do not even know how to explain my case. I would try my best.
I have security system installed in the house I recently purchase and I finally powered it up. the system works. I was wondering that if I can have it work with LMCE however I find there is no way to connect the system to the computer !! there is only one cable comes out from the panel looks like suppose to go to phone line to dial out. I do not think the LMCE would detect the panel through that cable.

Lead me into more search. I found out that there is a module that I can buy which would allow me to attach RS232. The module is known as
"Interlogix 60-783-02 SuperBus 2000 Automation Module with RS232". The installation instruction of the module says RS232 is configured as DCE device. I am attaching a screen shot here. Which I think LMCE should be able to talk with.

Second thing is,,, the whole purpose of security system is when something happens,, It should inform the authority. however. I am at the moment not going to buy any service. AS of now, I know that my phone system is not supported with LMCE. I use ooma voip as phone line. I have never used phone feature of the LMCE before. however I found a post where someone has Ooma system working with asterisk using linksys SPA-3102. Again, thats another topic.

that means my goal is to self monitoring the home using LMCE. For example on an event.. I want LMCE to take a pic or video or send and email to me whenever any is a sensor triggers when its armed. Anyways,, that is a long way to go.

here is the installation manuals for system and the module.

System :

So why am I posting these manuals? I do not know. Trying to provide as much info as I can.
somewhere on the manual I found that it is possible to get device BUS ID for each sensors and devices on the system. That could be helpful, Correct?
Do you guys think I am heading to right direction?
Is it possible to achieve what I want to achieve?

As I said before,, My post is all over the place. Any word from GODs would be appreciated.

Thank you very much.

Never had to do something like that, but I would

* Change the setting for the drive in web admin form public to use LinuxMCE structure.
* Reboot the system
* wait a bit (or press resync)

Report back your findings.

You Sir, is truely LMCE God !
The hard drive is now properly mounted after reboot. doing Resync and things seem to fall in place. Thank you very much.

I think the issue is there there.
my Media driver is mounted under following location.
/home/public/data/other/931.51 GB (sda1) WDC_WD10EADS- [35]/public/data/

in that data folder I have videos, pictures and audio directories with all the media in respectively.
All my videos got populated on Orbiter
All my Songs got populated on Orbiter,
But none of my pictures shows up. I checked attributes to all folders and assigned attribute "Linuxmce Pictures" they all appears on database now as I can see "check sign" under webadmin But they aren't populated on the orbiter. I do not know what else to do.

I added some pictures in /home/publice/data/pictures (on the main hard drive where system is installed ) and they immediately showed up on the orbiter.

This is really frustrating. :o I honestly did not want my media drive to be mounted under /home/public/data/other to begin with because my drive that contains media is already has "Linuxmce directory structure." however the message on the orbiter scared me out when I added the drive so I chose to make everything public, so it got mounted as "other". I knew something would go wrong.
Is there any way I can revert this back?

If not what should I do to get my pictures populated?

I hope I am explaining my case properly.

Thank you. Teju.

My Resolution issue is solved for now. I have done extensive modification to my xorg.conf..

Added bunch of modeline under Section "Monitor" and "Screen" in /etc/X11/xorg.conf file
I used following command to get all modelines that I needed.

gtf 1920 1080 60

here is my xorg.conf looks now and all video playbacks are normal. resolution issue is gone.

I now remember that I had to blacklist "nouveau" module in order to have nvidia install. I followed a post and blacklist following modules. Perhaps one of those are responsible why I do not have proper AV wizard. Is it possible?

here are the list of blacklist.conf modules.

blacklist amd76x_edac
blacklist vga16fb
blacklist nouveau
blacklist rivafb
blacklist rivatv
blacklist nvidiafb

Hi Podse...

Did you modify the setup scripts that you had been asked to modify in IRC?

Yes, that is how I was able to install the desire driver. here..

cat /usr/pluto/bin/  =

The security pics should not end up in /usr/pluto/bin but end up in /home/securitypics

That must be system's fault. I know I added camera exactly how it says on wiki. What can I check to confirm?


These are the info from other system where,, Nvidia card runs very smoothly.

These information might be irrelevant since other system is 64 bit and LMCE is 32 bit. I don;t know,, hope someone can help here.

Thanks again for looking into this.

Hey guys,,

I am experiencing some issues with my system and unable to resolve despite my efforts. The purpose of the thread is not to complain but to report.
I would try my level best to explain as much as I can.

1.) I have Nvidia 6200 card and as we know it is not supported by latest driver. Therefore I went ahead and installed nvidia-304-131. The system is successfully running however, here are the related issue.
First of all, I was never able to see clearly AVWizard except step 1. as soon as I pick DVI, Resolution, and refresh rates. all rest steps were completely unreadable. I finished AVwizard blindly used my experience for it. having said. I have UI on my screen that is completely off tract. I am attaching the pic.

I may be able to solve the problem with 1.) manually edit xorg.conf 2.) re run AV wizard which I have already tried unsuccessfully. On the same system I sometimes boot into separate desktop (debian KDE) where I use same nvidia driver for same card and the resolution looks perfect on that while for LMCE even on KDE desktop, the card is not at its best.
Third,, I sometimes get error during boot saying "fixing recursive fault but reboot needed" and it hangs up. two third attempt and its boots normally for me.

I believe these all are related to my Nvidia card. and the way driver has installed and also the kernel issue. I would post xorg.conf for both system here so someone can help.

2.) When I play any video file on the LMCE , the picture not at all sync with my monitors resolution. I do not know ,, weather its nvidia again or something with xine player issue.

3.) I have installed a logitech 9000 security camera according to wiki page and it works perfect. however, other day I noticed that my /etc/pluto/bin directory was flooded with .jpg files and I noticed those images were from my camera whenever I accessed security webcam from the orbiter. "is that normal ?" I never seen that happening before unless design has been changed.

Please see the following command outputs, hope that helps.

you may wanna print this out.

also, This may not directly apply to our case but gives good idea how to make a device plug in play,, in this case ,, I believe we want to make a device template that is plug in play.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Integration of streaming sites?
« on: April 04, 2016, 11:44:20 pm »
I'm afraid I have no programming skills.  :(  I have no idea how to do this...


I am on same boat. Always have these ideas but reading codes like a foreign language. Anyways,, If you want we can dig little more into this. I am willing to put some efforts.

Following is my understanding and observation.
1.) if you notice about mythTV ; when we fire myth from the computing the entire software runs on its own putting everything on side. example, UI, screensaver etc.  unlike,the way as the firefox launches.
2.) mythTV is a software given as a choice. Which means, If I do not want the front end would not be installed on a particular MD. These softwares can be added and removed from the webadmin under devices and as a child device for a particular MD.

Same way Kodi may be integrated to LMCE.
Should be available as optional on a particular MD only.
When user chooses, the software would be installed as a child device by running a install scrip that would install kodi.
the link to fire kodi may be made available on computing page of the UI underneath myth.

Everything LMCE does it through a device template. I found this wiki that explains the Device template in less complex language.

Perhaps, Kodi is a huge piece of software for us to start. we can try something very lightweight first.

Let me know, what you think. :P
Any words from LMCE Gods would be appreciated. :)
