Great work guys!  Any chance you guys would help to implement this into LMCE?

Installation issues / Re: Blank screen after regenerating orbitter
« on: September 20, 2010, 03:55:32 am »
Some things that could help diagnose your problem:

What is your installation source?  Net install, DVD Beta2 install, Snapshot install?
What video card are you using?  Nvidia, ATI, Intel, VIA?
What model of video card?
How are you connecting to your display?  Composite, SVIDEO, VGA, DVI, HDMI?
How long have you waited after the AVWizard?  (It could take more than 20 mins to build the orbiter before showing the Setup wizard.)

Installation issues / Re: unknown filesystem type 'ext4'
« on: September 11, 2010, 04:12:57 pm »
Although ext4 is the default filesystem type in newer ubuntu versions, ext4 was not a stable file system when intrepid was released.  There are unstable packages under intrepid but reaslistically ext4 is not supported on 810 intrepid.  I'm also not sure what, if any, glue that lmce may require to recognize it.  There are testing packages in intrepid that you could enable to try but I would be leary of trusting my data to it.  I don't believe it's possible to convert an ext4 filesystem to ext3 so your primary option is to copy everything off the drive, reformat it ext3 and copy all you files back on.

Installation issues / Re: enabling FAAD AAC audio layback in xine

I've no idea myself, just going by what I see in svn changes and in the repository.

Installation issues / Re: enabling FAAD AAC audio layback in xine
« on: September 11, 2010, 02:15:11 am »
I believe that libxine1-ffmpeg is required for AAC in xine.  Although that package was available with the previous 1.1.16.3 xine-lib, it unfortunately appears that package is not included anymore for lmce since the update from 1.1.16.3 to the current 1.1.16.4.  If you attempt to install libxine1-ffmpeg apt will downgrade your current xine-lib and you'll lose (at the least) the current updated .mkv support.

The lmce DVD installer requires an internet connection to install properly.  There are many small items which are fetched from the net during the installation process.  If you try attempt the install without the network connection your system will be broken.

You do not need to perform the 'apt-get update/ apt-get dist-upgrade' as the installer does this for you automatically now.  But you will need an active internet connection so it can.

I just tested adding the avenard repo back into lmce and the mythtv repository pinning that is employed in the current snapshots seems to allow avenard to be used safely for mplayer.  Adding the avenard repo and doing an 'apt-get dist-upgrade' will pull in mplayer from avenard and leave mythtv untouched (it's pinned to the lmce repo). 

YMMV.

Users / Re: PXE Not Working -- Other Minor Issues

Altering the DHCP and firewall settings are hardly non-standard, when you can do so from withing the LinuxMCE interface as checkboxes. If the system is unable to have the settings it allows you to change be changed, there is an issue that should be reported as a possible bug, to help out the development. I may not be a programmer or part of the project, but I consider myself at least an above-average linux user.

Have you verified this is an actual bug and not caused by 'mucking around'.  Try from a scratch installation following the recommended setup.

If having to stick to the basic and unchanging install setting is the only answer, it loses all pretense of being helpful. As it turns out, the

The software is in BETA, do not expect it to work properly or completely.  The network and firewall settings in the webadmin do work.

network settings ended up being fine, and the only helpful advice was from Techstyle, which I appreciate. The mucking about I did was perfectly fine, and the server so far is handling it without issue, although I think I may need to find a better way to drive the video on

There has been excellent advice from more than just Techstyle in this forum, you are simply picking and choosing what to accept and what not to accept.  You are quickly alienating yourself by ignoring these people.  From your final statement about multiple MDs I would suggest that your 'mucking' about may have caused some issues you are completely unaware of.

my Intel mini-ITX system, since its having trouble decoding videos and doing the screen saver without lurching. I can do that research though.

I expect you are using UI1 on the Intel graphics, UI2 has problems on Intel graphics with UI2.

No hits yet on how to handle a samba share off of a windows XP machine to have it show up under movies on the Core/Hybrid. THAT problem is starting to irk me, since I'm not getting any error reporting through the admin interface and don't know where the logs are.

If you use the recommended network settings and don't 'muck' around with it it will automatically detect your Windows shares...

Also found out that if you remotely restart the Hybrid MD interface from a web-administration interface, it seems to start *two* instances of the MD, which then fight endlessly until you restart.

This is not normal operation for the system, you have likely 'mucked' something up.  I suggest you start from a fresh installation without 'mucking' with the system.  Read thoroughly through the forums and the wiki and don't 'muck' with it.  Be patient.

Installation issues / Re: Launchmanager, start kubuntu without LinuxMCE
« on: September 05, 2010, 03:38:55 pm »
Your mouse or an MCE remote should control the DVD menu.  Controls are available during playback by pressing F6, F7 or F8 on your keyboard.

Users / Re: What devices are you running Web orbiter 2.0 on?
« on: September 04, 2010, 09:43:06 pm »
Seems to work well in Opera on the WebDT 366.  Sucks to need a keyboard to login all the time.  Not quite as responsive as the padOrbiter but pretty good.  Not showing elapsed track time display in the remote screen.

Installation issues / Re: Setting options in installer.
« on: September 04, 2010, 09:20:34 pm »
There is currently no easy way of doing this and no plans to re-implement this functionality in 810.  I've dug around this a little and there is still a lot that needs to be brought together to make this all happen.

Feel free to dig in, you will need to at least familiarize yourself with the entire boot process, launch manager, pluto.conf, ubiquity for ubuntu live installer scripting, and the beta dvd creation procedure.

You can prevent the MD services from running and you can prevent some core services from running by altering pluto.conf values.

After installation /etc/pluto.conf contains AutostartCore=1 and AutostartMedia=1, set them to 0 and some core services will not start and no media director services will start, don't remember if X will still start or not though.

As I'm going through the AVWizard, something interrupts the setup, immediately after I select my room and the Wizards starts from the beginning. 

Just to be clear the AVWizard and the Setup Wizard are separate entities.  The AVWizard comprises only the initial Graphics and Sound configuration (until you press 'I agree').  Once you see Sarah and press the 'Next' button as she instructs, you have entered the 'Setup Wizard'.

When you say 'something interrupts the setup' can you be more specific?
