Installation issues / Re: Windows machine on external network

I agree with colinjones 100%. You'll do yourself a huge favor by using the system as it is intended to.
Move everything onto your internal network and whatch the magic happen. My system has been running flawlessly
for the past month with no hickups. Printer on the LAN, stand alone Ubuntu machines for work purposes, virtual machines
on another server. Makes accessing and managing your network a lot easier.

Will inquire about getting it fitted with Wireless n. Also Waiting for the Ram upgrade.
Will keep you all updated.

Hi Posde,

then this would mean that the device would become an MD not a standalone Orbiter.
I thought about that, by taking this route, the device would have to be stationary, being
connected to the LAN and all. I would much rather use it like the WebDT. Access the network
via Wifi. You know what I mean?

BTW, this unit will be available with 512MB of Ram by next month or May.

Good point donpaul, but I was thinking more along the lines of an integrated
solution therefore bypass having to boot into XP and so on... Port the Orbiter
software directly onto the unit. Is that feasible?

Hi All,

What do you think of this little number here
as an Orbiter? About half the price of the TREQ

Thom, if I send you a unit, Could you test it?
and How would you do it? would you port the software directly onto the unit or would you just modify the Orbiter software
that runs on Win CE to run on this unit?

Holla back, John.

Wouldn't these make great Orbiters? In touch with the suppliers now, will order one for testing purposes.

That is correct, I had the same problem on one of my MDs configured with UI2
yet another MD with UI1 sees my second floor floorplan.

I agree with alx2k. The Wii hasn't got the muscle to be a good MD. The ASUS Eebox makes a better MD. With a few minor tweaks of course.

Hi All,
this is my second post in this forum. I've actually been lurking around as a guest for quite some time.
But before I decided to chime in, I wanted to be as informed as I could be. Because I've noticed that a lot of
people don't actually take the time to read through past threads before they ask questions that are deemed "STUPID"
by advanced users of LMCE but are not as clear cut for a novice or noob.
So guys and gals, I'm not saying you should read the whole forum's content, (Which I did, btw) but the search tool is your friend, USE IT!
I do understand when guys like Thom gets pissed off at people asking the same question over and over. Do your homework people.
Because if all the answers were given to you on a silver platter, you'd never learn and you wouldn't enjoy the LMCE experience as much.
So instead of being part of the problem, be a part of the solution.

Your thoughts, John.

Users / Re: How did you end up here, using LinuxMCE?

Hi All,

Finally decided to join the forum. I've been using linux for over 15 years, My home/office is 90% Linux.
I've got a couple of Win XP instances running in VMWare server, because there are some applications that
are not yet available for Linux, but as soon as they become available, I will ditch XP altogether.
I stumbled upon Linuxmce a while back, but never had the time to put a system together. As a business
owner, I clock some serious work hours. Finally managed to get some free time a couple of months ago
Bought some hardware and built a killer core/Hybrid system. (Quad Core / 3 Gigs of Ram / 250 Gb OS Drive
500 Gb Storage and a 1TB NAS) Overkill perhaps, But I call it forward thinking, by the way, my hardware
had some issues with LMCE, but with a couple of trips to the command line, passed a few commands to Grub
and a few VGA card tweaks. I've got the Hybrid running with UI2. SWEET!  After a dozen or so installs and reinstalls.
I've got a working system. My system is on 24/7 for the past month with no issues or whatsoever. I'll add
my hardware list to the wiki at some point. Right now, I've got two Laptops working as MDs. One is attached to my TV via
Svideo and the second Laptop is setup in the dining area. Will be adding light modules, IP cams and so on soon.
Also looking into the ASUS EETOP as and MD for the kitchen area. I think the touch screen would be great for
the wife to browse for recipes and play her fav shows and or listen to her fav songs while she's cooking. It is a
work in progress, needless to say, LMCE, Very Addictive!!!
Linux MCE with all it's rough edges is the best solution for HA out there by a mile. I'm hooked.!!!  ;D
