Are the stand alone media directors supposed to have mysql-server running? And mythtv-database running on them?
Thanks,

Yes, I have 2 Gig total, what I meant was I was sharing 512 MB for Video. Trying to fiddle with other things in the Bios to figure it out. - Thanks.

Users / Jerky HD Video on Asus AT3N7A-I
« on: August 07, 2010, 06:29:46 pm »
Hi,
I am having a very hard time getting smooth playback of HD Video on this mobo running as an MD. I have 512 MB shared DD2 800Mhz to the video card. The processor spikes up when playing 1080p or even 720p video, I tried various different encoding, but xine player spikes up the CPU usage and the video playback is not pretty. Any ideas on what can be done? I understand that xine doesn't use vdpau?
TIA.

The huge text on the screen is something that I am experiencing as well. But it is only on Samsung LCD TV. I had another MD connected to the same TV with similar results. Don't know what is the driving factor. On my ION board though, I still am having difficulty running HD 1080p video. I have dedicated 512 MB of shared mem (DDR2 800) to ION and even installed the latest drivers from Nvidia, but still the video is choppy. Are you experiencing similar HD video issues on your board?

Good Luck with your recovery. I can understand partially what you are going through. I am dealing with a long term injury on my left leg resulting from a motorcycle accident still going on after a year and a half. Had another surgery on May 22nd and am back on crutches.
On a lighter note, I blame LinuxMCE. It took over my life and I can't think about anything else including when I am driving or having sex :)

Hi sambuca,
Tested the new Picture_Viewer and it works like a charm! Thanks.
Please have it rolled up into the next build so others may be able to use it as well.

I have the same problem on my MD's after an update, it is due to the smb permissions on the Core. Do the following on the Core (downgrade samba install) and test.

Code: [Select]
apt-get install samba=2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3 samba-common=2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3  libsmbclient=2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3 libwbclient0=2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3  smbclient=2:3.2.3-1ubuntu3 smbfs=2:3.2
Code: [Select]

I tested it and ran into the same problem, I think the screen saver needs to be blanked out or splashed with a black screen when the picture viewer is started. Not sure if there is a ticket already open for it.

Wondering if anyone has figured out a fix for it till the next update?

25
wonder why this was added? perhaps to solve the smb permission issue? In any case, for people with a lot of video's and stuff, this command takes a long time to run and adds to the boot up time.

Installation issues / Re: cant create an MD after latest update

Look at the folder /tftpboot/moon#/

for example, I have three MDs, they are all in the /tftpboot/xyz/ folders. where xyz is a numeral with the respective md number.
Also, after rerunning diskless_setup.sh did you rebuild it from the gui? you may have to if you already had an MD and it got corrupt somehow.

I concur. Sharp. And for a projector, Mitsubishi, (I have an HC5500, rs232) works wonderfully.

Users / Xorg running at 99% CPU when the Fan is not working
« on: April 09, 2010, 07:11:12 pm »
So, I was able to replicate this twice in in a week.

The Nvidia card that I use has a fan on top of the heatsink. If I turn off (shutdown) the Core and restart it, the fan doesn't start up because it is just crappy and needs a nudge. And if the fan is not running, Xorg is running at 100% CPU utilization. If I blow into the fan and it starts to spin and starts cooling the adapter, the processor is back to normal. I am wondering if this is just purely heat related or if there is a fan speed sensor on the video card and it will turn off the GPU if the fan is not spinning. Odd, but just an FYI for others that are having high CPU utilization with Xorg.
