Installation issues / Re: NVidia GT220, no AVWizard
« on: July 22, 2010, 09:24:01 pm »
hey I am not an expert but I had similar issue with 8800 GT where I get to a point where no AV wizard. I can show you my trick, its not technical but it works.

1. you said, you had your system up and running with your 220 out. if so, get your system up running without 220, hope you will see your basic UI1 on the screen and everything else is fine.

2. from there you want to rerun AV wizard from advance. the system will try to restart. as soon as you see the bios screen turn it off. in other words do not let it completely restart. at this what you want to do is,, put your 220 back in and let it restart. it is the same way as pressing the "shift" key between two beeps unfortunately for some reason my system does not make that beeps so I follow this weird method.

3. now assuming you have 220 card in and your system is trying to restart and it should try to get AV wizard. the problem is the system will try to give the screen from basic connection. in my 8800 GT it was s-video connection. since I had two DVI and one S-video. try to connect all inputs VGA preferable, if not the svideo and it will give you the AV wizard screen.

if you dont see any thing... press 3 wait,,,,,, nothing then try press 4 ,,, wait... for DVIs there is a list for number but for latest it does not corelate and also varies from card to card. after all,, the system will try the basic input on your card first followed by DVI then hDMI... thats how it goes....

I hope my steps make sense to you. please dont give up. you are almost there. as you had it up running once. its just few steps and you will be happy.

let me know,  thanks.

Users / troubleshoot : system hangs need help [solved for now]

Hello guys,

I have been using linuxmce since a while now. my system core/hybrid 8.10 is running just fine. Except there is one little problem. And I dont know how should I solve it.

The Problem : system starts and runs just normal in the evening, next day morning when I wake up, I see it hanged. I cannot move cursor nothing. Only thing I have to do is hard reboot meaning turn it off by holding power key and turn back on after a while.  Sounds like heat issue but my case is running almost 6 fans !!

MY guess : unfortunately I have refurbished 8800GT and I am guessing that after a while the GPU is dying.

I dont know how to read logs. If someone can guide me through. how can i find out what is going on?

thank you all in advance.

take it easy. :)

Installation issues / Re: HVR 1600 in Beta2

Here is the link for 1600 set up. just follow the link from backend setup. People say V4L drivers are better but I am still using IVTV. You can choose either and play around.

A little word : do not set up via sara. I am not using device template for the card. I followed this tutorial to setup my tuner card.

Hope that helps. Let me know.

Thanks. and take it easy.

Dear users,   

there used to be a myth that plasma leaves burn marks but in lmce there is screen saver all the time. So I dont think we may have that issue.

with this in mind. if someone can contribute their knowledge about selecting best tv with better control in lmce and no compromise in quality @ good price.

any input will be highly appreciated.

what are the pro and cone of selecting plasma TV?

Thanks in advance. ???

what type of tuner card do you have?

I am happy to see this thread up.

Please post a list of TVs that has RS232 connection/ that has device templets for Linuxmce.
I am very interested list on Sony if someone posts.

I know some are fond of plasma. And with screen saver on, for plasma is not a bad option (less risk or burning phosphers ) correct me if I am wrong.

I am looking forward to see any replies on here.

thank you all.
