Users / Re: Raspberry Pi v3 as media director - slow nfs speed
« on: August 22, 2016, 10:45:49 pm »
I have used both, I created the methods to boot the rpi's.  The currently recommended method is diskless style booting and that will always be the preferred method, now that it is available again.  That being said the updated files to use the diskless boot are not yet in the repository.

I usually attribute this to bad cabling or switches.  I can say that I have absolutely no problems accessing/playing media with my RPi3s.

Developers / Re: booting 1604
« on: August 22, 2016, 01:37:25 am »
The verification is due to spamming, it goes away after making a few posts. 

And as Alblasco points out 1604 has a couple of bugs that prevent daily use atm.  And due to new boot methodologies we may need to alter our dvd creation.  Net install for 1604 can be accomplished.

You're issue $? incorrectly.  I'm on my phone an really unable to respond more than that.  I'll try to elaborate whenever I get home.

Installation issues / Re: Zoom & Aspect Controls In Xine Not Working
« on: August 13, 2016, 10:37:41 pm »
I believe this is an issue in libxine.  The orbiter controls are passed to the player but only work with certain video types.

As always you can keep up to date on when new packages are pushed for users by watching: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/LinuxMCE-1204/1404_Updates#Upcoming_fixes...  No package listed there means it is NOT available in the repository yet.

Autotagger *does* run, and spits out that error ;)  Follow the tutorials for how to use it, feel free to check if an issue already exists for the 'bug'.

Installation issues / Re: Video Quality & Sound with Intel Drivers
« on: August 08, 2016, 08:14:12 pm »
Since I'm not actually running any newer Intel video I'm only relating what I've heard.  fbdev is a video driver, like Intel or nvidia.  va-api is the acceleration mechanism that Intel uses, like vdpau on Nvidia.  Tearing is related to vsync and must movies are not recorded in the same refresh rate your monitor/card regularly uses.  This option likely adjusts the monitor vsync to equal the film's frame rate, which eliminates tearing.  This is not desirable for most other day to day tasks, or gaming, which wasn't the highest possible refresh rate.  I know the Intel driver is fubar in 1604 and tschak uses frame buffer on his NUCs with newer Intel video built in.

I believe newer Intel stuff needs fbdev and vaapi for acceleration.

Installation issues / Re: 1080i over HDMI with Intel Graphics
« on: August 05, 2016, 05:34:31 pm »
Modelines in xorg.conf *should* override edid information.  iirc we explicity turn off edid in xorg.conf.  I run used to run my 1080i plasma at 720p due to this issue, with an rpi there I don't have that problem atm.

Installation issues / Re: Minor Issues With 1404 Install
« on: August 05, 2016, 05:31:29 pm »
Thanks for the info.  dvdcss is quite illegal in a lot of countries so it will be left as a manual install.  I'll see if I can figure out what the codecs that package depends on are as we try to limit our dependencies on kubuntu.

Thanks again!

What you did is correct!  I simply wanted to verify the method you used.  Do you remember the package names that you had to install?
