The web pads are very cool. I straightened out the business with paypal (what a mess that was!) and will send out (the modest 1 hour) as soon as they verify the account (the site says a day or so).

Thanks again for all of your hard work!

Thank you Thom. I'm having problems with paypal right now (says i've already registered an account) so i'm going to call them today to get it straightened out. I'll only be able to put up one hour right now. Paying your bills is the most important piece. I'll also check out the web pads.

Very nice

Agreed, looks great!

3 small items to note:
1. -
  a. SVN portion is blank
  b. Login verification: I didn't receive the confirmation email (this is either due to the smtp settings on the web server, quarentine/junk mail on my hotmail, or typo on my part)
2. LinuxMCE forums -
  a. Graphic is missing on upper left on the forums (This is either my web browser (**Confirmed to be functional in firefox**, issues in IE and Opera, thanks Techstyle and Domodude), or the graphic is just not there, what i see is attached)

If I have access to correct any of these items please let me know!

Developers / Alpha to Beta to GA Code Release strategy
« on: July 20, 2009, 05:22:00 pm »
I'm attempting to get my head around the development and release process. I'm going to throw out a few things and would like someone to comment:

1. Features and issues:
  Features are requested via the TRAC system and validity of features are decided upon by a PRB (priority review board) and are assigned (or dismissed) based on resource availability and whether the change is appropriate based on current release or future (roadmap) releae.

2. Release Strategy:
  Releases (builds) are done on each yearly x.10 release of Kubuntu and GA dates are based upon developer availability and number of issues/features included in the TRAC system.

3. Updates to code:
  If someone wants to correct an issue or correct a feature, this person would need to be plugged into either the PRB or community leader in order to be assigned via the TRAC system and have access to the latest build to update.

4. Testing cycle
  Upon completion of an update, information regarding the update is posted on the wiki to track the changes and a new alpha/beta release is made.

Comments are welcome!

Thank you,

Are there any updates on the hourly rates? If we can compile a list of requested features and establish estimatations (please note ESTIMATIONS)  we could get something rolling.

Personally I'd love to see the fiire gyration remote supported in 810 and am willing to put forth development $$ for it.

Good morning,

  Over the last 9 months since I initially found this site as an alternative to Windows MCE, I have dedicated a significant portion of my spare time (I've recently had my first child, finishing my MBA and working a 60+ hour per week job) in diving deep into the linux world, specifically around the technologies associated with MCE including Samba, MythTV, Apache, Z-wave, shell scripting and perl including some others aound Kerberos and a few other technologies. Granted with everything going on I haven't had a tremendous amount of time to dedicate to this, though I'm just about to finish up my MBA (Grad in August) and my baby girl is getting to be a bit more self sufficient. I'm planning on my time opening up within the next couple of months.

  With the studying and 'playing' i've done with the technologies listed I would consider myself moderately useful (though not quite approaching the level of knowledge the top tier here have like Thom, Hari, Zaerc, etc) and will be working on value adds to the project. After reading about 3 pages of the 12 on here, I agree with items from both sides. I had found difficulty in easily plugging myself in to anything that would be helpful, so I decided to get off my lazy ass to start studying so I could contribute at a level that would be helpful to everyone, I'm just sorry it's taken so long.

  I hope we'll be able to keep the project alive, and anything small in the near term I can do to help please let me know, otherwise I'll see you in the forums and on the irc channels.

Thank you for the information, I've been looking at this as well for purchase.

Installation issues / Re: PCHDTV HD-3000?

I'm a little on the late side, but this has now been posted by Zaerc and references the 5500 as the steps are the same.

Users / Re: How did you end up here, using LinuxMCE?
« on: April 21, 2009, 04:09:41 am »
I was desperately searching for an alternative to Windows MCE and stumbled across the lmce website, watched he video and got excited. I spent the next couple of months planning what I needed to do to get started. I budgeted and purchased a Fiire 12TB (of which I'm currently using 4TB) and a fiire diskless MD, ran cat5e cable behind my walls and spent a weekend getting up lmce 0710. Since then I've been configuring a usb UIRT, hardening the core kernel and becoming familiar with the lmce system, all the while finding this website and the wiki an invaluable tool.

I'm currently investigating the best method for delivering video for MythTV as well. When you say the channel source has changed, are you talking about the device name on the backend? If so, have you loked at the udev configuration?

The one in the video is the Fiire Chief, but I believe Fiire as a company just went under. :(
The more experienced folks may be able to point you in the direction of a suitable replacement.

Hi Waifrelic33,

  1) No
  2) I would have to defer to a more experienced person as I'm not familiar with the vob format, I use avi's and the inherent dvd ripping utility on the MD which works great.


Users / Re: Start something with command line command from linuxmce
« on: March 15, 2009, 05:19:00 pm »
Forgive me if I'm over simplifying the question - though to start a child pid/program in unix you can run the & with the command name, this will start a new pid and allow processing outside the interactive shell.

Users / DCE Router log - Continuous errors
« on: March 15, 2009, 05:12:05 pm »

I have been attempting to understand more of how the LinuxMCE system works at a technical level, documenting and uploading the information to the wiki. I'm struggling with a couple of errors I'm currently encountering in my DCERouter.log that repeat so often it's difficult to spot anything else.

 The errors seem to be centered around the MythTV (which I do not have setup yet, my cable company doesn't release a box has an activated firewire/1394 port), though I have not performed any kind of setup, are these errors expected in the router log? Is there a recommended way to get around these errors or disable the mythtv piece to clean up the log?

Thank you,
