Users / Re: New TV but what to buy?
« on: March 30, 2011, 11:55:55 pm »
If you're looking for 3D in 50" I highly recommend the Panasonic Vierra 3D Plasma televisions.  Great TV, controllable with RS-232.  I havn't submitted my template yet but it's working great.

There is a command which can do this for you:

Code: [Select]
$ sudo usermod -a -G audio user_name
will add 'user_name' to the group 'audio'.  Let us know how it goes.

Add your username to the 'audio' group in /etc/group.  Reboot the machine if you have already started KDE.  You should have full audio capabilities now.


Users / Re: Upgrade path from 8.10?
« on: March 23, 2011, 07:27:33 pm »
Nope.  I wouldn't expect anything of the sort until 0810 is released and/or 1004 reaches a release candidate stage.  Any kind of upgrade documentation will not be coming anytime soon.  1004 is under development, and not supported nor is it encouraged for use at this point.

So i got this gt210 because it supposedly was a good card. Guess not.
vdapu : non functional

hdmi audio: non functional.

Not sure which card exactly you are trying but if you have vdpau issues AND hdmi sound issues you might try upgrading the nvidia driver.  I have a Palit nVidia GT210 512MB Fanless PCIe x16 2.0.  I had to upgrade the alsa drivers to 1.0.23.  To make things easier I disabled my motherboard onboard sound (negates issues with multiple sound cards and LMCE).  I may have completely replaced my /etc/asound.conf, I don't remember but I can post it if you'd like.

No long enough that I don't need the cradles.  Mine seem to last a little more than 30 mins.  They usually live on their cradles.

Thanks possy.  I forgot that DCErouter was GPL.

As I understand it:

A move to 1004 will not move the system away from the PPL.  DCERouter, Orbiter and other parts of the system are PPL'd and would need to be re-written from scratch as new software under the GPL.

A 1004 release will not allow LMCE to follow ubuntu releases any quicker.  Dianemo, from CHT, have re-factored their build system and they now say that they are able to transition quickly to new Ubuntu releases.  LMCE does not currently have this capability.

You are correct that the odds of 1004 being released before Ubuntu drops support are much greater...

Possy:  Did you upgrade from 0810 to 1004 directly?  Or did you step through 0904 or 0910 before 1004?

As Thom says 2 different Orbiter software flavours, two very different devices, it really depends on how you want to use it.

The n800 kinda fits in your pocket, I find that Orbiter causes the batteries to drain pretty quickly, so it has to stay plugged in the majority of the time.  It can be tough to hit some of the buttons without using the stylus.  My n800 lives on my Dining Room table, it's very small and unobtrusive.

The Archos, I've only used one (an Archos 7 Internet Tablet) for about 5 minutes, I liked it for the most part.  It ran Android (lots of apps), it was snappy and the screensize is bigger, which is better for 'coffee table' Orbiter use (flimsy built-in stand).  I have not had a chance to try Orbiter or TouchOrbiter on an Archos itself.  The Archos 7 Home Tablet is the same size with less speed/graphics capability than the Internet Tablet and would be more than enough to run Orbiter alone.

It comes down to what you want to do with your device and how you want to use it.

You're welcome.  Have fun!

The Orbiter binary is located at /usr/pluto/bin/Orbiter

/root/.xinitrc is where TabletCFG is launched from.

Have you tried using the wpa-psk network configuration that comes with Padorbiter?


Users / Re: Cannot boot from PXE

Yes, you will need an active internet connection on the core when you run


Users / Re: Cannot boot from PXE
« on: March 11, 2011, 04:13:47 am »
Welcome to LMCE!

You will need to open a terminal on the Core and run:

Code: [Select]
sudo /usr/pluto/bin/

before your diskless MD will be able to boot.


Users / Re: xine-lib and video playback issues?
« on: March 11, 2011, 04:03:53 am »
It would be helpful if someone could check if this fixes any of the tickets listed here:

This one is fixed.  No problems pausing and resuming either sample video as many times as I could, no crashes.  I have a few dozen movies (mkv and avi) that do not play properly and non of my recorded tv (mpeg2) plays at all under 0810.  I havn't submitted bug reports for them but these updates fixed them up.

I have nothing with subtitles in .mkv, or any other, format.  If someone has a sample to post, and tells me how they activate their subtitles so I can replicate the issue, I'd be happy to test it!

First question I had when I saw this thread was going to be regarding VDPAU; are the instructions in the original post (refering to the nVidia driver) VDPAU-friendly? Should the MD be up and running with VDPAU first before doing this, or should VDPAU be selected after?

I am using VDPAU and that is what the majority of my testing is based around, I also have an Asus EeeBox B202 with intel graphics that does not see benefits of VDPAU but I have installed this on.  It doesn't matter if you have vdpau selected ahead of time or after installing the items I indicate.  The 'vdpau' option in webadmin is only used when Xine_Player is launched on Router Load or Reload.  It has no effect whatsoever on anything else in an MD or Core.  There is never a need to 'rebuild' an MD or re-install a Core.  Select 'vdpau' before or after performing the suggested activities and it'll work either way.  You need to 'Quick Reload Router' for changes with vdpau selection and Xine_Player to take effect.
