I love this little mini-itx case, VESA mount, wall mount, DIN rail mount...  Great for home and auto.  $39

Some autopc cases for reasonable prices as well...

I don't believe that hulu takes advantage of vdpau acceleration as of yet, nvidia has stated this is being worked on.

Installation issues / Re: Xine, x264, VC1 (mkv), and VDPAU
« on: May 02, 2010, 01:50:25 am »
A GeForce 8300 supports VDPAU, but a GeForce 8300 GS does not.  See: http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/195.36.15/README/supportedchips.html.  

Even though the GeForce 8300 supports VDPAU there are different feature sets that different cards support, see http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/195.36.15/README/vdpausupport.html the 8300 supports feature set B with the exception of certain H.264 streams.

@ phenigma
I remember reading that thread. I got the impression dianemo's software development had taken a different direction which is why the bash approach might not work under lmce. That said, if I am wrong, am happy to be the guinea pig.

Here's the thread and specific message: http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8880.msg63138#msg63138

Are you running an 8300 GS?  The 8300 supports vdpau (except certain h264 streams) but the 8300 GS does not support vdpau.

The driver is set to xv in my /etc/pluto/xine.conf file but VDPAU is working just fine with hardware acceleration set to VDPAU in the webadmin here.  HD content is playing on my ION with 10% cpu usage.  I believe that video settings in /etc/pluto/xine.conf are ignored now.

I havn't used it since the alpha stage but it worked exactly as expected then.  Click, swap, then I think I rebooted the core at that point as well.

CHT has a proper device template already in their Dianemo/Cascade systems for the Denon AVR2310 rs232 control using their 'bash' serial control rather than ruby...  I remember Andrew and posde had discussed bringing this template functionalilty to LMCE but at the time no one was using the 2310 in LMCE to test, this may be a good opportunity to do that.  Just a suggestion...

Users / Re: Strange zwave device failure
« on: April 23, 2010, 08:48:36 pm »
I'm assuming you are using a USB zwave interface, like the USB-UIRT you have been having trouble with.  Have you investigated the possibility that your USB may be failing on the Motherboard?  It seems plausible since you are having failures of multiple USB devices.

Have you tried removing it and plugging it into a different USB port?

The point is not really to allow you to adjust the temperature remotely, although it is a fringe benefit/feature, the point is that it allows your electricity provider to control the temperature in your house remotely.

We have something similar in some locations in Ontario served by Hydro One.  Hyrdo One will give you a *free* web enabled thermostat and a $25 credit on your electricity bill.  Once installed Hydro One automatically adjusts your air conditioning setpoint up 2 degrees C (~4 degrees F) during peak electricity usage periods (rather than turning it off).  These periods can last up to 4 hours here.  Personally I'm against the idea of anyone other than myself having control over the internal environment of my house.  HydroOne also requests access to control your electric Hot Water heater as well.  Here's the link to HydroOne's PeakSaver smartstat for those interested: http://hydroone.apogee.net/smartstat/

Installation issues / Re: IR code sequence
« on: April 16, 2010, 05:01:09 am »
You will have to build a new IR code which incorporates both of the original codes.  This wiki http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/TOAD_vs_Discrete_Codes article and this http://www.remotecentral.com/features/irdisp3.htm webpage will help you build the proper codes.

Installation issues / Re: DVD new install 810 b2
« on: April 15, 2010, 06:31:51 pm »
Your welcome.  Another thought:  Check the apt repository file /etc/apt/sources.list and see if it includes a reference to the avenard "testing" repository.  From a terminal window you can type:
Code: [Select]
cat /etc/apt/sources.list
You should see a line that looks like this:
Code: [Select]
deb http://www.avenard.org/files/ubuntu-repos intrepid release
Make sure the word "testing" is not in the line anywhere.

Can you explain me how I create this preference file? In my instalation I dont have it in apt folder. What I made was put text from ticket on file and save it "preference", but when I do the apt-get -V upgrade I have the same message without the preference file.
thanks

In a terminal window paste the following:

Code: [Select]
sudo echo "Package: mythtv mythtv-frontend mythtv-backend mythtv-common mythtv-database mythtv-transcode-utils mythweb libmyth-perl
Pin: version 2:0.22*
Pin-Priority: 1001
">>/etc/apt/preferences

enter your user password when prompted.  HTH
