Developers / Re: ypbind running on MDs but not core is this intentional?
« on: February 12, 2011, 03:05:08 pm »
Thanks Thom!

I've been reading, but I'm off to do more!

I was originally under the impression that I would have to use ypmatch to grab data from NIS.  But, it looks like NIS takes care of replicating the information across multiple machines, and that it can be then accessed locally at each system using 'getent'.  At least that is my understanding right now.  You're statement about the replication of system configuration files pretty much says it all.  I am going to do some more reading though.  Thanks again for the push in the right direction!


Developers / ypbind running on MDs but not core is this intentional?
« on: February 11, 2011, 11:26:01 pm »
I'm trying to determine the home directory for a user on a hybrid and MDs using NIS.  ypmatch works great on MDs but ypbind doesn't appear to be running on the core causing ypmatch queries to fail when executed form the core.

Is ypbind running on the core for anyone else?

If not...
Does anyone know if ypbind is disabled on the core for a specific reason?

Thanks in advance.

SO Hari,
If i understand corectly, I can control, AMP, DVD,TV and possibly PS3 via the kwikwai unit, using an orbiter?
This would be a better solution than USB-UIRT......

I'm not Hari but... what you suggest is correct, likely even for the PS3.  I am currently controlling my PS3 (via HDMI) with IR codes sent to my TV, essentially using my TV as an IR to CEC converter for connected devices.  I could see investing in one of these units to control most everything and rid myself of IR based control.

My view is that we need to focus on a more limited set of areas and do those extremely well. One area that LinuxMCE excels in is the ability to integrate pretty much any other device and allow for the control of or the interaction with it. In that sense we see integrating with Boxee, XBMC, Sonos, UPnP TV's as more of the same.

However with UPnP devices and Media Renderers in particular we can use these as headless MD's that we use an Orbiter to control. This seems to us to be a perfect combination in many ways.

UPnP/dlna rendering/control and the touch-orbiter concept are some of the most progressive and exciting ideas I've heard for this system in 3 years!  Andrew it's great to hear you are consistently contributing back to the community while evolving your product!  I do worry about the idea of 'limiting' existing areas of lmce though.

Thanks Andrew!  :)


What would that specific version be?

Mplayer 1.0rc3 and newer or any recent SVN version of mplayer has vdpau support.


Is this work around still working for you with all the updates? I tried a dist-upgrade after the end of life with the new sources.list when I was trying to install something new and it basically broke the system. I had to do a new install--which on my system means a lot of fooling around to get everything working again.

The avenard repository is still in my sources.list, dist-upgrade pulls in mplayer and libx264-65 from avenard and everything else, including mythtv, from the lmce or ubuntu old-releases repositories.  Avenard hasn't updated his intrepid repository in a long time...  It just works for me!

Also can you play recorded mythtv files in LMCE and get both video and sound after you do this? I only get video currently with these files and no sound. Many thanks!

Upgrading mplayer will have no effect on playing Mythtv files in LMCE.  LMCE will play mythtv files with xine.

Let me know how it goes and if you get stuck with anything I'll try to help.  Good luck!

Okay, here's two screenshots, one of the device on the a/v equipment page and one of the details on the edit IR codes page.  I've also attached a .txt file which contains all the Ruby code for each of the commands.  These are all the basic commands, my TV doesn't implement things like PIP, so I havn't included those commands.  For reference my TV model is: TC-P50VT25.  Additional codes are easy to implement.

Screenshots are doable.  :)  The hardest part I had getting my Panasonic Plasma to respond was the serial cable, it was a little non-standard.  It required a straight through cable with a female connector on both ends.  Most F-F serial cables are null-modem, which didn't work.  I ended up using a straight through M-F cable with a gender bender adaptor and tested control using minicom before lmce.

The first steps in a nutshell: 
Add a new a/v device under A/V equipment, choose Panasonic for manufacturer, and TVs/Plasma/etc.. for category then 'Add device template'.  Give it a name and choose RS-232.  You can leave most of the remaining settings as defaults (I'll get you specifics for timings when I get to my core tomorrow), select all the inputs you have on the tv when prompted, set the # of times to repeat commands to 0 (not actually certain if this affects GSD or just IR devices).  You'll have to enter the name for a new IR group and select "add ir group".  When the device template displays select the "Ruby Internal Commands" and choose Update, this will add the required internal ruby commands that will interact with the GSD device and dcerouter.  Next comes filling in the commands.

I'm on a test machine right now so I'll have to grab the GSD code from my core tomorrow and post it.  It'd be nice to have someone else test it out, then I could submit it to sqlCVS.

I have a working RS-232 device template for my Panasonic Plasma TV.  I'll be happy to post what I've got and try to help you out.

I have to take offence to your comment "I will not let anyone else implement it". I always thought the philosophy of the project was "he who writes the code, writes the rules", so if someone else implements this, are you saying you will block its submission? This may be a minor issue in itself, but if that is, in fact, what you are saying it represents a very serious shift in the project philosophy. That would deserve, I would respectfully suggest, an open discussion of its own.

Another indication of the "Do as I say, not as I do" attitude.  Thom, last I checked, you do not 'own' this system.  No wonder people don't want to step up to help with development work...  The attitude here has to change!


Installation issues / Re: video and audio problems
« on: December 03, 2010, 09:58:56 pm »
All available sound devices should show up when you execute 'aplay -l'.  Try 'sudo aplay -l' if you're not running it as root.  You should see all the mainboard's onboard sound devices (there are a few) and the nvidia HDA HDMI device from the video card.


Installation issues / Re: Ubuntu 8.10 end of life breaks installer

Hi All
Im a noob to linux but keen on getting this running. Its getting frustrating though. I would have thought most of the incorrect references in the source list would have been changed in what appears to be a weekly snapshot. With the amount of hits this topic has, the problem has obviously been around for a while.

I think it is safe to assume that snapshots are on-hold until some of the major issues surrounding intrepid end-of-life are resolved.

It looks like the final snapshot produced before the intrepid repository disappeared is:  LinuxMCE-8.10-23388-i386.iso        01-Nov-2010 00:17  3.8G.  My recommendation is to not use anything newer than this until issues can be resolved.  Mythified and myself both point to snapshots that have successfully installed for us in recent days.
