Users / Re: Running LinuxMCE on low power system (Odroid and similar) ?
« on: February 07, 2016, 05:08:48 pm »
- how do you cope with video surveillance, large media disk, asterisk, large SQL database, ... ?

I have probably more media than most people and have no problems with the sql database size at all.  My media lives on a NAS, however I know one person simply uses a large drive plugged in USB3 on the odroid.  None of us have any video surveillance at the moment so I couldn't comment on that.

- do you have also MDs on cores (I'm quite happy with simpler MD on core - using UI1 on main touchscreen) ?

I do not run an MD on the core, and I don't think any of us are at the moment.  It might be possible but we are running the odroids as 'core only' devices.

- I guess you use RPis v2 for MDs - are they full blown MDs? Can you start media on them from Orbiters ? Is RS232 TV control supported ?

I have a mix, follow the link in my sig to see what I'm running.  The rpi2's are full blown MDs (UI1 only).  They act like any other MD and you can control them from any orbiter in the house just like any other MD.  RS232 control is fully supported.  I have rs232 control of one of my TVs, CEC control of another and UIRT control of another.  The big difference is that the arm device is much too slow for PXE style booting.  All of my MDs are 'disked' MDs (rpis from their SD cards and the zotac from a small SSD).  And I lie there, I have a single old RPI1 doing audio (squeeze) only that is PXE booting from the odroid, the others were just too slow in PXE config.

One idea is to divide system and have video surveillance on separate system (one of chinese good products) and lessen the burden on those cores...

I know nothing of this, however I figure there must be a way to move the video stuff to a secondary low power device and have lmce interface with it.  Again, I know nothing of how this is currently implemented in lmce so I'm speculating here.

I hope that helps you out a bit, check my sig and see what I've got setup.  And check gitlab out for specific issues/bugs that are known.

Installation issues / Re: What I got working in 14.04
« on: February 07, 2016, 04:59:49 pm »
Awesome to hear how that's proceeding!  The asterisk thing is a known upstream bug in asterisk, if this is the same issue.  Phone lines will not register properly until an outgoing call is made, this is due to how asterisk verifies phone lines and DNS names.  If an IP address is used instead of a DNS name then all phone lines should work properly with no additional massaging.  If this is not the issue then please give us a ticket with specifics.  :) 

Keep having fun Mav!  And thanks for testing the new internal drive detection scripts (and fixing an error I had made)!!!

Users / Some upgrades and all IR code editing currently broken [fixed]
« on: February 05, 2016, 09:46:46 pm »
Just want to give a heads up that any upgrades that include the dcerouter package, or any attempts to add/edit DeviceTemplates with IR data will currently fail.  Hopefully this will be solved asap.

The closed ticket is from an installation where someone installed mythtv 0.28, not our current version and I can not correlate that data, which is why the ticket closed.  If someone can determine the proper values for 0.27.5 then we can fix that up.  :)

Installation issues / Re: net install of 14.04 is currently broken[solved]

Most of the info/settings for it are in /etc/apache2/sites-available and the active sites are symlinked into /etc/apache2/sites-active or something like that.

I don't believe it is missing, but it may not be configured fully.  The switch to 0.27.5 changed a few things a few months back.  None of the developers use mythtv at all so this will fall to those that use it to troubleshoot and provide/suggest fixes.  :)  Thanks.

Not having nvidia drivers installed is definitely a bug in the initial boot.  Based on what I know of the scripts I'm not even sure how that is possible to occur, but needs some investigation.

The mythtv-setup icon is created by the pluto-mythtv-player package's postinst.  If it is not available then something likely did not complete there, again that would be a bug if we can figure out why.

Thanks for testing and reporting!

Great to hear!  We fixed a very long-standing bug with hdmi audio and nvidia hardware that I hope fixes things up for a lot of people!

regarding the net-install, the errors persist.
I will try the snapshot now

I have just completed a fresh 1404 i386 kubuntu install (http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/kubuntu/releases/14.04/release/kubuntu-14.04-desktop-i386.iso) and followed the instructions at: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_1404.  There is absolutely no problem.  Everything installs perfectly. 

Please triple check what you are doing.  It takes a lot of time for me to test these things and that time could be much better spent.

I am aware of that.  But it is something else causing your failure, not package versioning issues that we are dealing with in this thread :)

Please open a new thread for your issue darkwizard.  Thank you.

Mon, 01 Feb 2016 12:05:04 -0500 Failed to get data from PK_InfraredGroup=6038&PK_DeviceTemplate=2033&Restricted=0

This error is not related to pkgs, but to something trying to update IR data that doesn't exist on the server.  As best I can tell.  This is unrelated to upgrade errors and will need to be solved seperately.  Feel free to open a new thread darkwizard864.

What is this?  You will need to provide some specifics about your installation and what you are doing for this to mean anything.
