there is an option for changing the refresh rate explained in the wiki, and i noticed that the computer will seem like it gets hungup if you try and start something from the web orbiter then try and do something with your remote or keyboard.  You have to hit the power button on the orbiter to release control back to the core.

were you using software raid? ubcd has software that will check the controller.  I doubt both drives went bad, highly unlikely, did you run fsck yet.  Also since your having hdd data errors with install errors i'd check the ram too just to be safe.

 This is the link you want, you need to get the transceiver to work with Lirc first and then the RC6 remote file will function as an MCE remote.



heh, so even though the blaster blinks it's not working with lirc?  What does the other driver do?  Just curious.

This card works the way i stated above with s-video and audio going to the audio input on the tvtuner card. Component does not work, only black and white.  S-video works for mythtv only, livetv does not work and video is not nearly as good as pvr-150.  This card is a waste of time, now that i have tried both 350 and 150 the 350 is not for this system imo.

well, when i want to make that kind of sound when producing music there is only way of doing it that i know of.  Cross electrical signals, easiest way is to do something stupid to a ground wire or find a way to lightly mingle the positive and negative.  Is there any chance that it could be an external probelm?  If not the only other (accidental)way ive ever seen that happen is drivers are pushing the card so hard on volume that it clips giving you a crackling sound, the only fix ive seen is new drivers.  If thats the case try some generic drivers, you'll probably lose hd sound but that really can't be good for the sound card anyway.

Video works fine from the s-video port now.  Can't seem to get the sound to sync.  The sound is coming from the cable straight into the sound card.  If i plug it into the tuner card it sounds likes aliens talking underwater.  Any ideas on how to fix this? Im using the onboard sound of an asus m2n-mx-se plus.  Thanks.

 You are making your life a wreck.

 TV = MythTV = your tuner card SVideo input. DONE = Myth TV setup source, input etc..
 LiveTV = The input on your Display that you setup so the coax input on your TV would be a broadcast station or OTA TV like local station with an Antenna.
 Cable Box Live TV if you set your inputs correctly in the template. Which should have been my source does not have multiple inputs it supplies Live TV Only option #1

 Your STB/Cable box will actually give you another scenario on the menu in the UI for instance Mine Says 6141 which is my bell rcvr. I changed the name to this in the scenario device pages. It did say VULiveTV

 So in my menu I have

 TV = MythTV/PVR through PVR150 MCE
 Live TV = Sharp Aquos Live TV Input (Nothing Connected) I unchecked the scenario so this does not show up in the menu any longer as well.
 VU/6141 = Bell Live Express Vu via S-video on pvr-150 within LMCE and then I can hit Direct IR Codes from the UI and it will switch inputs on my tv and audio rcvr and i can watch LiveHD from the rcvr as well.

 This is all through my Fiire Chief remote and the Usbuirt with one flasher hooked up.


EDIT: ok, watched the video again, i think i get it.  So whats not working is that mythtv isn't controlling my cable box.  I'm not sure what i setup wrong but that's how i had it the first time.  Let me go over the steps.  I have a pvr-350, so i add that in pluto.  Then i go to the setup wizard and under inputs i hit antenna and tell it that my cable box is connected to this port which should control the cable box.  Which it did, but then when i reboot it makes another provider and i only get fuzz.  I think my main problem is that i had already setup a provider for myth before i told it that it was connected to the cable box.  Is this right?

EDIT: i watched it again and now im not sure what the second livetv button he uses does.  It doesn't switch inputs so how does it work?

need more info, what is the video output going to.  What did you set up for video resolution(DVI,VGA etc etc, res and hrtz.)?  What is the native resolution on your tv or monitor (setting that it is made for).  how did you update the nvidia driver?  what nvidia driver did you use? If your playing dvd is it a ide or sata drive? MORE INFO!   ;)

alright, it didn't blow up on me!  Turns out it's some kind of configuration problem.  Here's what happens and how i set it up.  I make all my templates in pluto, then use the setup wizard and tell linuxmce how i want them controlled.  I thought i'd be smart and combine my mythtv input and my satellite tv input at the same time.  So when i go to tv it automatically controls my cable box.  It actually worked great, only problem is when i reboot the computer i get nothing but fuzz.  If I delete the card and reinstall it i get myth back but it doesn't control my cable box again till i do the whole thing all over again.  So, i decided this is probably not how it's supposed to be done, so i hooked up a s-video input and set that up to be my input that controls that cable box.  This actually works much better, only problem is i don't get anything but a black screen on s-video but i can see the cable box's menu which leads me to believe that once again i am doing something wrong.  I know that livetv is supposed to be my outlet for controlling the cable box, but in the video he has it setup exactly the way i do and is using it exactly the way i want.  I thought live tv is supposed to be just a way for the signal to passthrough the tvcard and let linuxmce control the cable box while overlaying it's own menu's.  Then there is a driecttv which is a different input on the tv that also controls the cable box but allows for high def signal from the cable box.  Am I way off here?  Any help is appreciated.

did you try it in another computer?  it looks like it's rejecting the output jack for whatever reason.  It's dev=0 and it looks like it recognises the device fine then says forget the output like it doesn't exsist.  Weird.  This is onboard sound right?  Have you tried analog?  This should work with analog and play out on both if it does it might be that you have a bios update thats not working with a digital audio driver correctly.  colinjones what's your bios revision?  it's deffinatley something thats loading after avwizard that's causing the problem, do a dmesg while aplay -l using ctrl+alt and function keys.

i would check the asus bios then, you can put video slots in the order that you need em to boot.  So assuming you have a pciexpress card make sure pcix is the first thing the bios looks for to send the video to.  I'm not sure about this but using the amd 64 on an asus p5k probably shouldn't work to well.  The next thing i would check is when you think it's booted hit ctrl+alt+f2 and see if a screen comes up then.  That should deffinately send it to the input linux thinks is the default, if you see a login prompt then it's gotta be the driver for your card if not your motherboard.  If you think your board falls under the category described in the wiki i'd say time for a new board.  Or have some fun learning linux!!!

So i finally get everything working last night and im playing with my system until like 3:00am when i hear a loud pop.  Now i get no pvr output, i've tryed everything but reloading the dang thing.  Is there anyway to manually tell the pvr to tune to channel three besides the mythtv setup channel editor thingy.  I'm hoping and praying it didn't explode on me last night.  It was finally working perfect, took me 8 months to get this thing where i wanted it (mostly because of money issues).   :'(

might be an if then go to problem (though i doubt it).  I haven't tried adding music to my system yet, do you get the same problem if you say share this stuff out then look at it through windows media player?  It may be a cataloging issue as well, ive noticed that some dvd players dont write certain attributes on a cd that is burned even if you tell it to.  The same goes with ripping, im not sure of the details but i produce music and noticed this a couple of times on older drives (were talking at least 5-8 years).
