I do not want to start another thread , Yet I have silly question to ask.

My system is running on presscott D P4 processor. its 8.10 beta dvd install. everything working fine at the moment.

Is it possible to upgrade the processor ?
In other words.. If i throw a core 2 duo in it.. will it work fine? I do not want to reinstall :P  Hope you understand my question.

any reply is greatly appreciated.

Thank you all.

hello there,

I am not an expert but after a lot of troublesome procedure I am finally able to get my system up and running.

I would recommand to read this post, which helped me a lot.

also, I would recommand few additional steps to avoid future troubles.

1. please set up initial set up (first time "sara" comes up) with VGA connection to your monitor. pick basic settings on first setup. Remember you can always change this settings later on once the first setup configured successfully. So pick basic gui, simple audio etc and add user name and room set up.

2. once you have everything working under basic with VGA settings try to run AV wizard again and now pick HDMI, UI3 this will also install latest nvidia driver for you automatically and should work just fine.

3. I installed latest alsa package before installing linuxmce.. gave me optical audio out with no trouble.

If you are going to use any tuner card. I would recommand hold them until everything runs fine.. and add your additional component one by one.

One key thing is ,, be ready to often reboot or reload your router after every single steps. i know it takes time but worth it.( I prefer reboot)

also,, if you are newbiee really,,, read wiki and more and more stuff will make sense to you.

there are some tutorials by a user name pandaman on youtube about linuxmce ,, what can I say,,  he is my mentor !!!

I am loving it.

hope this helps..

Take care.

try to configure with VGA connection initially. You can always run the AV wizard later on and pick the DVI output once the system has been setup.

Hope this helps.


Did you reload the DCE Router?  If you don't the device won't start...

I did Quick Reload Router and this didn't worked, also later I have rebooted the whole system without success.

Once following the wiki and after quick Reload.....
You need to be extremely patient and let the system generate the orbiter. For the first time, system take more than usual time depending on your processor speed. I just generated mine after reading your post. everything went just fine.

The progress status is best seen under Advance ----> pending task. rather than under webadmin (my experience)

Hope this helps. Thanks

Why don't one of you write a device driver for LinuxMCE to support this card?

Sounds like a plan, Unfortunately I am just a regular ubuntu user.. barely learned using terminal recently. Writing a device driver is beyond my scope  :P
But atleast I can comment that a lot of people out there has this card. So any efforts will worth for the community.

Thanks. for replies guys.

Take care.

Hello there,

I am sorry to bother the developers who are really working hard at the moment. I know one of them using hauppauge 1600 successfully, my research says ,, it should be plug in play in these recent kernels. looks like its driver cx18 is stable as well.

Are we ever going to support the card ?  I have sitting it and HD homerun is little bit expensive at the moment to afford :P

I hope some one reply me to get this card to get going. Also,, looks like a lot of user has this card already. If you support the card, it will help others too.

Thank you all guys. God bless you.

take care.

I already bought some 6200 at ebay but this card was defective. So i tried it with a old card that i had on stock.
I will try it again if i have no sucess i will buy another 6200 with hopfully more luck.

I used to use a 6200GT and a 7300LE and I now use a 9400GT in my home Core.


Is 9400GT fully supported ? did you have any problem what so ever with it.. I am thinking to buy it.. thats why asking.. I would appreciate your reply.


Installation issues / Re: SOLVED: AVWizard resolution problem
« on: October 13, 2009, 06:02:05 am »
I am having the same problem.

I use DVI port, my card is nvidia 7200. My AV wizard goes fine but when "sara" comes in for some reason it make 800 * 480 and i just cannot see the buttons on setup wizards.

I can understand your steps but can you be more specific about going  "shh in" and modifying xorg.conf file? (exactly How?)

i mean from step 2 onwards.

thanks you.

This is amazing. It worked like a charm everytime. Thank you very much. this is extremely helpful.

okay, I got one problem solved
I updated Alsa on the MD to 1.0.21...I did a little digging around the net and arrived here:
Code: [Select] provide a script, that automatically downloads, compiles and updates the drivers, if I understood it right.
(you have to be registered to download the script)
So now I checked with alsamixer and suddenly I got all the controls I needed...sound optical is working nicley now.
I haven't tried hdmi, but right now I don't care that much for it.

Right now I have only two issues remaining here: getting the sound from the core
and getting MythTV to playback TV on the MD. MythTV-stup still claims that there non-exisiting paths for storage, but they are all there.
Interstingly, like I mentioned earlier, TV is working on the core.

My system was working and i lost sound all of a sudden. My soundcard is detected in alsamixer. I want to try updating alsa there are few problems.
I found similar script but it has tobe in /home folder. for some reason I can not copy it in /home :(

if you can give me steps to follow with commands,, i would appreciate.

Thanks .

Installation issues / Re: USB UIRT - learn mode stopped working - SOLVED
« on: October 04, 2009, 06:58:29 pm »
Worked it out!

Just in case anyone has same problem, the device template had lost the setting for which device/port was controlling it.
In this case the USB port had somehow changed from pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0+2 to pci0000:00/0000:00:02.0+3

Therefor opened the device and changed the COM port to the correct port that the USB UIRT was running on, and voilla can now learn codes again.

Can you please explain how to find out which port the device is connected to?

I am sorry , this might sound silly but I got my new USB uirt but unable to get it working.

I think I am missing some step to set it up and configure it.
I had my uirt pnp and the system installed its software successfully. followed by when I see under my devices ---> Media director i see windows XP MC remote is installed and  Infrared Receiver is set to USB UIRT 0038.
MY USB uirt Device is #36.

My questions are....

1. I do not use windows remote, do I need that windows remote installed as remote.
2. I use logitech dinovo mini. so basically I need

logitech---->core/system------>usb-uirt--------->sony TV

is it possible ?

Please help me here.

Hello guys,

Little intro. I cannot call myself newbiee anymore becasue a year ago, I build linuxmce 7.10 and got it working but then I did not have much money to get cool stuffs so I had to shut down the project. after one year I am giving it a try again. in mean while i have following hardwares purchased.
1. Asus P5Q mother board. (that has one gigabyte lan port on it)
2. Asus Xonar D2 series 7.1 sound card
3. another PCI gigabyte lan adapter
4. Hauppauge HVR 1600 tv tuner card.
5. NVidia 7200 series graphic card.

I tested all my hardwares with Ubuntu one by one. Here is my story for Hauppauge 1600 HVR card.

I tried to set up mythtv on ubuntu 8.10 just a few months ago. during installation I found that nvidia graphic is conflicting with the driver. I followed the guide on this page.

According to this guide, by adding "vmalloc=256M" to /boot/grub/menu.lst file solved my problem and I got card working with mythtv on Ubunut 8.10.

Now, just five days ago I have installed linuxmce 8.10 fresh install and I got my Asus Xonar D2 sound card working just out of the box and got spdif optical output.

Followed by I tried to put Hauppauge 1600 in and when I booted up, It brings me to commandline login. where I can login.
Looks to me once I log in, I am in the home/user directory.
I can use pwd, ls commands and jump back and forth.:))
I have to admit that I am not a lot command person. I can just follow the steps.

I am hoping that going into the grub/menu.lst file and putting that value can solve the problem for me. but I am scared to give it a try without any expert opinion because Linuxmce is not as easy to reinstall as regular ubuntu :))

I am ready to give it a try, can some one help me here and tell me the step to follow please.....???

I will wait for the reply.

Thank you all.
