thanks a lot, but I would like to use ui2 anyway so it would not be worth the effort...maybe it's an option if nobody comes up with a solution for ui2.
the thing which I don't understand is, why did it work so well in 7.10 and now it doesn't.

I consider you lucky if you've ever had UI2 working on Intel graphics in 0710 or 0810.  Every time I have tried under 0710 or the 0810 alphas I would always get a garbled screen.  Totallymaxed had suggested forcing the video ram to 128mb in BIOS to cure the garbled video problem, there is no option in my EeeBox B202 BIOS for this and xorg is reporting 256mb videoram in it's logs.  Somewhere in the late alpha stage UI2 starting causing orbiter to actually crash. 

The Intel driver from 0910 or 1004 work great with UI2.  I would love to find a way to get it to work in 0810 but I havn't had any success.  Hmmm, CVT has ported and compiled orbiter on 0910, I wonder if xorg could be upgraded on an 0810 system and the compiled orbiter binaries dropped in to maintain input functionality....  This is not elegant but *could* work, assuming it doesn't break anything else...

ui1 is running for some minutes but then suddenly the screen turns black and thats it.

Have you tried updating the EeeBox BIOS?  I had this problem but it went away for me when I updated the EeeBox B202 BIOS to the latest version.

Anyone ever get this working? I recently installed Beta2 and am also having the CIFS VFS error (after the initial Video and Audio wizard and the start of the orbiter generation).

Changing the xorg didn't seem to help. Did the intel driver work for anyone? Anything else to suggest?

There is a problem with the 0810 Intel graphics driver which causes OrbiterGL (UI2) to crash.  Newer Intel graphics drivers solve the issue but require an upgrade of ubuntu to 0910 or newer (the 1004 drivers work great) so this will not be an issue in LinuxMCE 1004 (the next planned version).  I have tried lots of different things with xorg.conf with no success.  It is *possible* to upgrade xorg to use a newer version of the Intel driver but all input functionality is killed when you do this so I do not recommend it.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Sony Playstation 3

I don't want to hijack Jimbodude's thread so if we want to continue upnp configuration discussion we can open a new thread but...  I havn't used upnp within lmce yet (I've looked briefly) however I have successfully watched mythtv dvb recordings on my ps3 through the built-in mythtv upnp server and using mediatomb on a standalone NAS.  I don't believe you can watch 'Live' tv through upnp.  If you are in Europe you could look into PlayTV which is a dual-dvb tuner add-on for PS3, not available in NA and it doesn't support ATSC so it wouldn't work in NA, and it's not lmce integrated.  MediaTomb requires configuration to ensure proper on-the-fly-re-encode of many file formats to be compatible with ps3.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Sony Playstation 3

Sony has dropped OtherOS support in newer consoles and many developers have walked away from Linux development on PS3.  Personally I'm dissappointed but I don't think we'll see much development or support for Linux on PS3 any more.  PS3 Slim consoles do not support OtherOS anymore so no new PS3s will run linux.  From a resource standpoint it would be much more usefull for LMCE going forward to concentrate on supporting other hardware than the PS3. 

That being said...  I'm still interested in being able to control it from the XMB.

I'd be very interested to hear about your experiences with it when it arrives.

Is this a core or md?  What hardware are you using?  This was happening with EeeBox B202's with older bios's.

What movies did you rip? Where are you located?
Please tell if you can rip dvd´s and if they are automatically identified together with info which country you live in.

In the past week the following have been successful with covers and data:
12 Monkeys
8 Mile
Akira
Aladdin
Big Trouble in Little China
Death Race 2000
The Big Lebowski
Die Another Day (007)
World Is Not Enough (007)

There were a couple titles that did not get data correctly:
The Best of the Blues Brothers
The Abyss: Special Edition

I'm in Canada.

I've tried just about everything.  UI2 boots with your xorg.conf *sometimes*, it still crashes at least 50% of the time.  When ui2 does show, the menus are garbled and unusable and there is no PSS showing.  This is what I always used to get with ui2 on the b202, this issue is fixed in a newer intel driver but requires a newer ubuntu to install.  I'm at a loss.  I'll go back to ui1 for now, it doesn't appear that I can get ui2 under any circumstances right now.

Hmm, I had done that previously without success.  That was before I did the bios update on the b202.  I'll try it again, if I get it working I'll work to have it implemented.

Pedplar:  Which driver version did you use and from which source?  There's a trac ticket open for this issue that I'd like to update if there is a working scenario.

I also have updated the B202 bios and do not experience the UI1 black screen.

I am having no problems with ui1.  There are issues with ui2 and 0810.  The intel drivers will need to be updated and that will likely happen when 1004 is released.

Thanks for the files. It works great on my core. But different story when it comes to my MDs. Can't play any DVDs on them after updating them. (unfortunately, I didn't backup the files on the MDs) One of them is 64 bit. Any ideas on troubleshooting?

I believe the 12-12-2009 update replaced the pluto-disk-drive package which would, I think, overwrites a file supplied by Itsik.  So if you update your core or MDs it could prevent some of this functionality.

I havn't tested this since the 12-12-09 update so I'm only speculating.

My UIRT works just fine pointing into the room (red led towards the couch) without the Xantech emitters.  Of course, ymmv, if you have issues you should use the Xantech emitters as posde suggests.  Try it.
