Installation issues / Re: 10.04 Install issue
« on: March 11, 2013, 05:50:26 pm »
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.

I do not remember exactly ,, but lines above in red is what I edited in my file. I would love to have mediatomb server accessible from the external network but I have not been successful yet.

Ok. First of all. My bad, I was addressing the issue on the post having said, I am attempting to access the media from my Samsung LED tv which in inside of my network via its DLNA playback capabilities, that is where the quality of video gets messed up. it was my mistake to call it MD. sorry.

the media hard drive architecture is linuxmce style. so I have media under user_1 and public folders. mediatomb is only showing contents of pubic. Which is fine and which is what I want. but it does not show all the contents. in other words, its being picky !

I will post my confing.xml soon.

Something has been changed with mediatomb. On ubuntu community document it shows that mediatomb needs user log in , in order to work stable.
I have mediatomb found by my tv (samsung) and also playing audio and video contents.

For that you have to edit its config.xml  file for it. I forgot its path on our system, believe its /etc/pluto/mediatomb/ (dont quote me on that) in that xml file you will have to add mame types for your content. I will post my config.xml when I fire up my core.

however my problem is, mediatomb does not seem to scan all the media. It does not update its database even though scanned manually.
and the video does not play with its proper display, In other words quality of video looks crap on my MD.

I hope I am not too late to reply.
Good luck.

Feature requests & roadmap / Airplay push
« on: January 22, 2013, 09:18:07 pm »
Hello guys,

Recently I came across an app on my Android device namely "imediashare" , It is pretty awesome app. Upon running it simply detects any AV device on the home network and pushes the content towards that device to play on it. , Video, Audio, pictures etc.

Since Lmce core is our main media hub, It would be awesome if the core has such a capacity to recognize any AV playback capable device on the network and simply push the content to play on it.

I don't know. It is out there. It might be possible. The concept on Apple device is called "Airplay". :P

I am sorry for the comment,

but your mission does not make sense to me. If you are running a MD that means your core is up too. If the core/MD is the same machine, then ideally your media should be on it. why would you run two or three machines to listen to music?

Or am I missing something here?

If it is other way , i.e. you are trying to stream music from your core to any pc in the home.. should make more sense. A possible solution is, Lmce by default hosts mediatomb upnp server (not fully functional though) that will allow your media play on any machine.

once again, sorry for the comment but educate me !

I have dell poweredge SC420 working as a core perfectly. Got 4 GB ram in it. It hits AV wizard with intel chipset no problem. even does not have sound card !

Installation issues / NO sound on MD used to work out of the box.

Hello guys,

The soundcards were detected on AV wizard but upon selecting Asus Xonar D2 , optical output , I have no sound. Used to work out of the box.

Please look at the screen shots of alsamixer from MD. what else am I suppose to do?

any help, greatly appreciated.


Installation issues / Re: MD setup Nvidia driver installation failing.

Hello guys,

I am tagging this thread as solved because my original issue has been resolved. I rebuilt the MD image and this time driver got installed without any problem.

For the sound issue , we will discuss in different thread. As of now, as a video card, GT 430 worked out of the box.

I upgraded his kernel to Natty.

sudo -i

Then dump the rest of this.
if uname -r | grep "pae"; then CurKernel="-generic-pae"; fi
apt-get -yf install "$NewKernel"
apt-get -yf install "$NewHeaders"
apt-get update
apt-get -yf dist-upgrade
If your MD will not boot again, sudo chmod +r /tftpboot/XX/*    where XX is your moon number.

Sorry for stupid question, are these steps to be done on MD or on Core itself?

Let's take care of nvidia driver issue first. because,, right now, in my living room the onscreen orbiter looks crapy due to poor resolution.


Installation issues / MD setup Nvidia driver installation failing. [SOLVED]
« on: December 04, 2012, 03:47:47 pm »
Hello guys,

I set up my system(hybrid core) with great help from L3mce. Upon setting up the MD I could not hit the AV wizard. the MD was on reboot loop with message on the boot load about failing nvidia driver installation.

L3mce helped me to comment out a line in moon42's etc/init.d/nvidia...(dont remember) and upon reboot I hit the AV wizard but had a very hard time to chose my resolutions. the AVwizard showed two option for the audio card but none worked. Basically I dont have sound coming out of the MD.
I have geoforce GT430 graphic card but I had to chose lower resolution as the driver is not installed.
I have Asus Xonar D2 PCI sound card on the system.
I believe the motherboard has an on board sound chip as well.
OH , not to mention, the GT430 should be able to decode sound too...!

dpkg --configure -a  does not give any output on the MD.

What should be my next step? Do I have to manually install the driver?

Please let me know. Thanks.
