Thanks, I appreciate the response.  I was looking to buy a few rpi for md usage, its a good thing u replied so I know that it's still not usable as such.  But as soon as get my system back to fully functional state it was in previously,  I have no problem buying a rpi for testing purposes.  Thanks again for your reply.

Good day to all.  Im back to my linuxmce addiction after being forced to go on hiatus due to several reasons. Is the wiki for the raspberry pi up to date and valid? Also, are there any know issues with the raspberry pi's as md's? Thanks guys

Personally, for my standalone core, I've always just used whatever motherboard/graphics I have laying around, regardless of brand/performance. Or buy a mobo that ticks all the boxes, without caring about graphics. Even if the screen does appear the size of a matchbox, why do you care. But this is just my experience. You could always stick an older nVidia graphics card in if you had serious problems.

Don't piddle about buying old kit to match your old CPU, just cough up and replace it all, doesn't need to be particularly powerful.


Ok will do. Response much appreciated

You haven't said whether you are intending on using the motherboard as a hybrid or standalone core. If hybrid is what you require, then yes nVidia might not be a bad idea (although that's not to say people haven't had successes with other cards). As for which chip, personally, if I had a choice between two, I would go for the older one. But that's just me.


sorry for the delayed response....i have been out of town. Right now I have the core 8200 chip (which crapped out) setup in my laundry room as a standalone.  I was just trying to replace the board but it's so old that its hard to find, so i'm left with rebuilding from scratch.   Obviously doing so would increase my cost due to having to buy a new cpu. I'm wondering if i should just buy a tower and call it day......but i've been with lmce since 7.10 and remember the video card issues so i wanted make sure of my options. thanks for the replies even though my reply was delayed.

Good day guys, I've been running 10.04 fine until my motherboard crapped out beyond no repair.  I've been looking at the posts but haven't come up with any suggestions for a new motherboard other than someone suggesting to look at Andrew's setup.  does anybody have any suggestions that has been proven to work with 10.04 or 12.04 which i more than likely will step up to? appreciate any input. thanks

link went through this time, check your account.
pos  aet

What I would do is, I would re-run the setup wizard, and follow Sarahs questions. She knows where to put the settop box.

thank for the help once again, i found the other usbuirt that i ordered and it was a hardware problem with the usbuirt itself. Everything is working fine with this one. thank you for taking the time to help once again....what is the email associated with your paypal account?

Still tinkering with the admin, trying to figure this out.....whatever i do the issue remains the same: i select a channel on the orbiter...myth changes but no IR signal sent from the usbuirt to the receiver. the only time a signal is sent is when i go into the resend a/v codes advanced option.  do i have the receiver under the correct device, i.e. the usbuirt?

I'd say your ds box needs to be in a room and EA.

thanks for the reply posde, i did catch that and select a room with no joy right after my original post. I saw this post which is what i'm trying to replicate, am i missing something:
I created a template for my satellite receivers, and part of that process was using the original remotes to teach the system the codes. This is the first thing I used the usb-uirt for.

"Once the template is created, you can then integrate it into your system. Where my core is, I have 2 sat. receivers, a roku netflix player, and a usb-uirt. After creating templates for each device, and learning the respective codes into thesystem by using the usb-uirt and the original remotes, I then assigned each device to a pvr150 card on my core, the next step was assigning each sat box to a tuner for mythtv use.

After these were all added/set up through the setup wizard and sarah, I just started building MD's. Now any MD in the house can control the receivers or the roku netflix player through the core.

Signal is sent from MD to the core to start Live TV, and then it just knows from there, which receiver/device to use, and stream across the network.

I have 3 usb-uirt's but I only use one of them to control my receivers and the roku box. The others are on MD's to control AV equipment and the TV's attached to the MD.

Hope that helps clear things up.



If i select resend A/V codes and select the advance option for the mythtv and select the codes from there it does send the command and do i do this?
p.s. i saw your paypal link for a coffee, which i'm more than happy to do since you helped me with the zwave a few years back, and i appreciated that. what is the email address for the paypal, because i can't do i through that link.  :)

here's the first floor floorplan if anybody needs and idea of what i'm doing

Fellas, kind of confused here. I have my core which has the pvr, usbuirt, and the directv sat reciever. I created a template which works.  The tv in the family room has a MD with gyration remote and i use the windows orbiter, but neither sends the command to the usbirt to change the channel on the core or the md.  can you guys take a look at my admin setup and tell me where i went wrong. the template is the "disone" added under the usbuirt. everything including schedulesdirect is setup.  I can send a command in the admin and it works but nothing happens when i use an orbiter.  Thanks in advance.   

Users / Re: DSC Security Panel
« on: February 11, 2013, 09:16:36 pm »
Hi All,

I am using DSC Security Panel with LinuxMce. I have had great success with this as when I arm it through my orbiters, it changes the house mode of LinuxMce and then if someone opens a door or window, all the lights in the house come on. I would like to be able to disarm it through the alarm panel keypad. Currently the keypad will disarm the alarm, but the house mode on LinuxMce is still set to Secure at home, which means even though the alarm is disarmed, if someone opens the door, the lights would come on. So when I disarm the alarm through the panel keypad, is there a way to set the house mode of LinuxMce to Unarmed.

Thanks for any help or suggestions


Good evening Dave, which module did you get it working with, the it-100?
