Installation issues / Re: Xine, x264, VC1 (mkv), and VDPAU
« on: April 30, 2010, 01:09:07 am »
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

This was implemented in the template in Changeset 22877 http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/changeset/22877.  I have not done an upgrade on my core to the latest build yet so havn't tested it...  perhaps the change is not functioning as expected?

GUYS!
STOP DOING THIS!

Please! just use the system as it is meant to be used, put everything on one network, let the core control and provision. It really does work!

Damn it, I'm getting _VERY_ tired of yelling at you all.

-Thom

If you use beta software for a production environment you are an idiot and deserve everything you get.

And there's my 2 eurocent.


So which is it then?  What is the developers consensus?  If I do as Thom says and put the core in control of everything then I would be an idiot as Zaerc says...  Excellent.  You have both been working on this system for a long time and people look to you both for guidance.  How are users supposed to know what to do now?

I use a NAS with dual NIC in it, one connected to the lmce network and one to my other network.  I use an ubuntu PC but there are standalone NAS devices with dual NICs as well. Check my sig below for the link to my user page on the wiki I have a diagram of how my network is setup, it's a little complicated compared to most but works great.

Try removing the gyro mouse and use a normal usb mouse and see if you have the same problems.

Are you using UI2 overlay or alpha blending?  The alpha blending could cause some 'jerky' action on the cube rotation but I can't imagine it would affect using the letters on the side.  Is this a mouse or a gyration mouse you're using?  I'm grasping, but trying to think of things I have seen affect the UI.  My use is with a wireless logitech usb keyboard/mouse.  Both work great.
