Users / Re: endless video playlist?

...That defeats the purpose of having a media library...

In any case, the playlist features are there.  I'm not sure about looping the playlist - you'd have to do some digging.  The rest is outside of the scope of LinuxMCE.

...Why would you want to do this...  This does not sound like it solves any problem.  You can already select exactly what you want to play and stream it to as many rooms as you want already... Look at the playlist features and media tagging.  You can search by just about anything - from performers, to titles, to genres - and queue up the results.

Last I checked, arrays built with mdadm are automatically detected and managed by LinuxMCE.  I have not tried the automated creation features, but I know there have been updates to those scripts since 0810 alpha.

mdadm --detail /dev/md0

will give you an idea of what is actually going on, or if the array was even created.

The device you have does not work well in a LinuxMCE setting.  You should consider purchasing a supported learning IR device, such as the USB-URIT, which is referenced in that wiki article.

This is not Mythbuntu - LinuxMCE automates a lot more things, and ties together a lot more systems.  If you find yourself editing configuration files, then you are probably doing something wrong.  Read the FAQ for more about what LinuxMCE does and what parts you need to do certain tasks ( ).

Since the day is over, I'll be more direct...

....look at the date, and think about why an open source project would ever use an oracle product...

If you're still lost, this should do it...

By the way, "gullible" is written on your ceiling.

For those of you who know things about Squeezebox support - is this wiki article up to date?

No additional equipment or know-how needed.  You can easily disable the auto-generated video and TV scenarios on a per-room basis from the web admin under Wizard --> Scenarios --> Media Scenarios.  This way, you can't accidentally start a movie and not be able to see it.

You may want to look into the squeezeBox and similar devices.  I'm not sure exactly what functionality is available, as I don't have one.

There is a wiki page that describes the process, however, it may not be up to date for 0810.  The cleanest way is to install with 2 NICs from the beginning, per the installation instructions and FAQ.

Use at your own risk, and update where you see fit:

sqlCVS will only help you with templates, unless you know exactly what you're doing.  You should not do any updates or reverts on any repositories except "dce" and "ir" unless specifically instructed to by someone who knows what they're doing very well.  If you do things incorrectly with sqlCVS, you will hose your installation, and have to start over.

Installation issues / Re: Pronto Codeset for IR devices

Dude, I already told you... use your IR receiver to learn the codes from the device's remote.

For me, RAID is fairly good protection against mechanical failure for data that I can recreate, such as media files.  Other things that are not re-creatable, like family pictures, require more care, like a proper off-site versioned backup system.

Note that if your motherboard has "onboard RAID", this is likely not really a RAID controller at all.  Generally, you need a special Windows driver that actually does the raid calculations in software.

Also, LinuxMCE can do software RAID for you, and manage it properly.

Make sure your browser is set to allow popups.  Repeat the whole process if it is not.

all are unchecked. do you mean check all under ir and dce and then next and then revert?
Yes, check ir, dce, and everything under each.

after this all is done, how do i create a new, clean template for those devices, not refering to an existing  pronto codeset template?
...The same way you created the broken one, except don't select an existing code set.

BTW, where can i find a description for the pronto codesets already existing or grab one, because i know there are ready pronto sets for my dsp-a1, but in pronto format (not in hex)?
I don't understand your question...  There are websites the provide the codes, or LinuxMCE can learn them from your remote.  LinuxMCE needs pronto format codes, not hex.

...Never edit the database directly - do not use phpmyadmin.

Delete the devices by looking them up in the device tree in the web admin and selecting "Delete Device" from the device page.

Revert changes from sqlCVS by selecting Advanced --> sqlCVS --> Diff.  Check off "ir", "dce", and everything under them.  Press Diff at the bottom.  Select all changes.  Press Revert at the bottom.  Repeat to make sure there are no outstanding changes.

This will revert ALL template changes that have not been committed to the central sqlCVS repository.

Update sqlCVS by selecting Advanced --> sqlCVS --> Update.  Check "ir" and everything under it.  Press Update at the bottom.  Repeat for "dce"
