Installation issues / Re: beta-problem with MD
« on: October 28, 2009, 11:03:59 pm »
As far as I know, VDPAU works only with MythTV so far. I haven't really come across instructions on how to get VDPAU for watching videos. I remember having read that totallymaxed did something like that in the LinuxMCE-flavoured software his company is doing...

niz23 has provided patches to the current system to enable VDPAU in Xine and therefor through videos selected within orbiter.  The patches have been merged into SVN and I would expect they will be available in the next round of builds.  For for information see: http://trac.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/ticket/383

I've been running with VDPAU on my Zotac IONITX-A-U all week without any issues.

Thanks Thom.  I'll dig around and see what I can figure out.  It would be nice to have this automatic when an spdif connection is used.

Users / AAC multi-channel to AC3 on-the-fly re-encode with Xine?
« on: October 27, 2009, 10:36:14 pm »
My receiver/amplifier doesn't support AAC.   When I playback media encoded in h264 and AAC 6 channel through spdif the receiver only sees the L&R channels.  The centre channel, rear L&R and LFE channels are dropped and there is no downmixing of the content.  The result is nothing but background and effects on the two (L&R) channels my receiver does play.

With MPlayer, in a console, I can start the media playing using an audio filter to on-the-fly re-encode the audio from AAC to AC3 and retain the original 6 channels, no downmixing.  Works great... using mplayer... from the command line...  I have searched for hours and have not found a way to do this with Xine.  Is it possible?

Does anyone know of a way to implement an on-the-fly re-encode of AAC to AC3 with Xine in LMCE?

Thanks,

J.

Installation issues / Re: The beta installer IS BROKEN

The Two Launch Manager issue seems to have been corrected by a recent changeset (http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/changeset/22384) though it was put in after the DVD.  This is why online installs work.

After investigating further my Alpha 2.37 machine has the same startup links but doesn't exhibit the extra software launching.

I will attempt to track down the .22 mythtv install issues this weekend.

Anyone want to help?
Tim

I'd love to help.  I'm booked up this evening but I'll have some time over the weekend.  I've got a test machine I can set things up on and I am familiar with mythtv (0.21 at least).

I'll be happy to test it out but don't rush on my account I know you're really busy.  I can file a trac ticket for now if you'd like.

Those of you who need it, please test and let me know if it works.
-Thom

I tried to install this on me 0810 alpha 2.37 Core using the setup wizard, the install of the package failed.  A subsequent 'aptitude install' failed on a dependency problem.  The dpms-monitor package is looking for 'xlibs-data' which is not available (not required?) in intrepid.  The device template for DPMS Monitor (#2009) has an entry for xlibs-data as a dependency under intrepid.

Installation issues / Re: beta-problem with MD
« on: October 22, 2009, 06:53:54 pm »
I tried this thread http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8460.msg56517#msg56517 and it worked fine but when I tried the 'dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xorg-server' it says: /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: xorg-server is not installed. Again I searched the forum for this but can't seem to find a solution.
I've got so far so i really would like to get to the AV Wizard. Any suggestions?

I've not attempted this myself but the package xorg-server is not a known package in ubuntu.  Try xserver-xorg, I think that's the package you want.

Did anyone of you try the windows orbiter? In the latest alpha as well as in the beta-dvd, there are no media buttons...the only thing visible is telecom and security.

No problems here, I didn't re-install the orbiter software on my windows machine, it was there from a previous installation.  I simply let the windows orbiter set itself up as a new orbiter in my new installation.

Well, I found this very interesting, because I thought the  new mythtv was more like an "accident", especially considering the trouble it causes with the generation of  the initial boot image for the Md in the beta.
Anyways, I'm in the middle of setting up with the alpha-script, hopefully this works better and lets me setup my MD  successfully again. By the way, does anybody know if the v4l package has been updated too? The repo I found and  described in the wiki (for the nova hd s2) seems pretty interesting and is supposed to get you s2-channels...if there is something  similar included already, shouldn't it be enough to just put the firmware in its proper place and reboot?

I thought the new mythtv was an accident as well, it had caused me issues on my ION board which had been using the avenard 'testing' repo when neither my core nor my other md used the avenard repos at all.  I asked for the tickets to be closed after confirming that the switch is intentional.

When installing using the beta dvd the avenard 'testing' repo is active and myth is version 0.22.  For alpha 2.37 it looks like using a stock LMCE install or using the avenard 'release' repo should work just fine, this would give you myth 0.21.  Once the next alpha build is complete it looks like the alphas will need to use the 'testing' repo to stay compatibile with the mythtv protocol changes in svn.

Your welcome, good luck!  I have yet to try analog or HDMI audio on my Zotac ION 330.

I installed alpha 2.37 the other day without a hitch.  I had to enable the avenard repo manually to use vdpau, I only enabled 'release' and got mythtv 0.21-fixes.  It looks like mythtv in LMCE is in transition to 0.22 from the avenard 'testing' repo and I was just behind on the info.  ;D

I installed alpha 2.37 a couple days ago and this got me past the "Diskless Setup failed" error and allowed me to create my MDs.
