Are you guys running/testing your installation 12.04 or 14.04 on SSD?
Is anyone using SSD for lmce?

Sorry to ask these questions, I am planning to collect hardwares this season(thanks giving sales) ;)

Users / Re: SPDIF in 12.04 please help!

Just out of curiosity , I want to ask, Does your Core has sound card?

I had and odd experience with 10.04 where, my core did not have soundcard hence some ALSA packages were not installed on core leading to issues with sound on my MD !!

So true. So many decent hardwares are on sale around this time in US.
I just don't wanna piss off people here with listing many here.

Can we have a sub category for hardware on forum?
or is it too much to ask ?

I have used Logitech Mini for years with Linuxmce. Great little device. Looks cool and does the job well.

Users / Odd request ; for a youtube tutorial !!

Hello Everyone,

I would appreciate if someone who already has setup for a z-wave control can make a youtube tutorial to show how its set up with Linuxmce? ie. may be temperature control, lighting control or whatever you may have.

I also request for a Tutorial for multizone audio setup? I have read posts but a youtube tutorial would be nice.

Well, I am still in favor of MD. reason being, I think MD can turn into a full Desktop if needed. Specifically latest intel NUCs has a lot of juice.
with properly supported SSD, MD can boot up much faster.

Not quite sure, I am still running the system with some obsolete hardware and the system is gettting pretty slow....... slower...... now,,,
I wonder how fast Rpi is getting the ui on screen?

Can you guys post a youtube video about your setup of Rpi ?

I would Stay with Linuxmce. 
I have 80gb hard drive on which core/hybrid system installed.
I have another 1 TB hard drive formatted as xfs (I believe) (I dont remember) which is partitioned as LMCE directory structure. If needed I can just upgrade the towercase that can hold more drives. but I think, for now LMCE fulfills all needs for directing media with much less system requirements. (Except Mediatomb can be more user friendly :P)
If you need to reinstall LMCE that goes on 80gb but the media drive would be plug in play
As far as I understand, Core does not need more powerful system, its your MD needs all juice.

And that is pretty true,, as I run my core on old dell poweredge S420 with pentium single core processor with only 2 gb ram. and it works. except with slow orbiter regen :P

FreeNAS has ridiculous hardware requirements, specially if you want to setup ZFS (better performing NAS).

Can someone get away with UFS setup just for Media contents.(movies High quality and Music)?
Never used FreeNAS before, in order it tobe LMCE compatible, do we need any specific FreeNAS setup?
I believe someone in the past suggested to have it setup like /public and /user just the way like LMCE likes, is it true? 

Users / Re: unable to update please take a look at source.list
« on: August 01, 2014, 04:25:46 pm »
replace anything that has "mirror://" with ""

Sorry for late reply. It worked like a charm. Thanks Much.

Users / unable to update please take a look at source.list (SOLVED)
« on: July 05, 2014, 08:27:22 pm »
hello there,

I fired up my core after a long time. works fine but upon trying to update, I am not fetching sources.

My source.list look like following,
deb file:/usr/pluto/deb-cache ./

deb lucid beta2
deb 20dev_ubuntu  main
# deb  lucid free non-free
deb stable  main
deb lucid partner
deb mirror://  lucid main restricted universe multiverse
deb mirror://  lucid-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb mirror://  lucid-security main restricted universe multiverse   

I commented out medibuntu repo just now to avoid error. still I sense something is wrong.

Any input?

there is a sweet little program in ubunutu's repository called minidlna,

very easy to use , can it be included in our system? we have had issues with mediatomb in the past.

When the computer boots up it goes right into the flickr background with the arrows. I'm not a Linux pro, so I'm not sure what to do to get around this..

Thanks again...

I think that is one of the purpose of the system, Playing media all the time when there is noting going on. I think its cool feature.
