Users / Cover art won't go away
« on: September 23, 2009, 01:29:00 am »
I used the import-attributes-from-amazon feature a while back, and somehow due to my screwing with things alot of my cover art got assigned to the wrong mp3s. Due to the large amount of incorrectly assigned art, I've decided I want to start again with assigning cover art.

I've done the following:

1) moved all my mp3s out of the /home/public/data/audio directory into a temporary directory.
2) cleared the pluto_media table as instructed in
3) deleted all .id3 files from the temporary directory
4) deleted all files contained in /home/mediapics and /home/coverartscan
5) using mediamonkey tagging software, removed all album art from all mp3s in the temporary directory
6) moved mp3s back into /home/public/data/audio
7) ran resynchronize media from the web admin

Here is a sample of the output:

The album art returns. It seems to have stored somewhere other than the locations I've been clearing. Can someone explain how to thoroughly cleanse my library, short of doing a reinstall? I'm out of ideas.

Users / improvements

There are a few grammar and spelling errors that take away from the professional look and feel of the page. I'd like to suggest a few corrections, to whom can I send them?

Users / DIM level mappings
« on: September 09, 2009, 09:47:52 pm »
I have a couple ACT Homepro lamp modules and I noticed that the brightness level mappings are not ideal. For example, changing from 90% to 100% there is almost no perceptible difference. The same goes for 70% to 90%. There is a big difference in perceived levels below this however.

How can I re-map these intervals so that I have higher resolution? Is this problem likely specific to this model of controller? Can I create a mapping for each individual device or are the mappings global?




Users / Poor Call Quality
« on: September 09, 2009, 04:13:22 pm »
I'm experiencing poor (tinny-sounding) VOIP call quality. Internal calls suffer the same problem, so I've ruled out my VSP as the cause. The problem is also independent of softphone client and choice of protocol (IAX/SIP).  Any ideas what the culprit could be?

Could this be related to the fact that my home network is completely wireless after the core?

Users / Streaming via PPTP to iphone or PC
« on: September 07, 2009, 06:56:33 pm »
Thanks to donpaul for his work in bringing VPN to linuxmce. I'm excited about streaming video from the core to an external pc or my iphone using this.

I typically get 50kb/s from my core to another consumer quality point of access over the VPN. This is not enough to stream most of video material in my library, from my initial tests. I assume there are ways to compress the video in realtime and stream it at a lower bitrate so that I don't need to create lower quality copies of all my material just for remote viewing.

Where can I learn more about implementing something like this? I read up a bit on mediatomb, and I get the impression it can do this. I'd like to know what I need in the way of a client (on a PC or iphone) and what configuration needs to happen on the two ends.



Users / iphone (SIAX client) and asterisk
« on: August 27, 2009, 05:00:14 am »
I'm using SIAX on my iphone as an extension in linuxmce and am experiencing a strange situation.

When using the iphone over wifi (connected to internal linuxmce network) I must use as the host name to register. If I use the internet IP address of my core, i get no registration (asterisk CLI shows nada in the way of connection attempts).

When using the iphone on 3G, using the internet IP address of my core works. Since obviously using when connected via 3G won't work, this means I have to switch the server name each time I go on and off wifi.

Any ideas why I can't use the internet IP when inside the linuxmce network?

Users / Method for selecting new features for implementation
« on: August 21, 2009, 05:11:03 am »
I think we need something more sophisticated than the web forum polls to determine feature priorities. Supposing we used a matrix like in the attached?

0 means will not contribute to
1 means will contribute, but least wanted.
10 means will contribute, and most wanted.
A number can be used only once per voter.

Users / Green list in new Titanium skin
« on: August 10, 2009, 07:23:37 pm »
Just updated to latest 810 and switched to Titanium Blue skin and have the following problem (see attached image).

Tried titanium silver and had the same issue.

Feature requests & roadmap / RX8001 Wifi-IR-extender
« on: July 24, 2009, 04:10:56 pm »
Would be great if support for a device like this could be added for those of us who can't lay cable for ethernet-based ir extenders.

Users / Z-wave device compatibility question
« on: July 21, 2009, 07:02:22 pm »
I'm looking at and wondering what the model# is for the US version.

The first link points to a European version of the product.

The second link points to a product catalogue (not a particular model). From this I found two models - ZDP100 and ZDP100 v3.2 - Are either of these compatible with LMCE?

The third and fourth link point to UK versions.

Also does anyone know if these modules will work in an older house with no ground plug?

Users / 710 install on M3N78-EM
« on: May 21, 2009, 04:00:20 pm »
My onboard NIC is not supported under 710 without a kernel upgrade. What is the best/easiest way to install:

a) Install 2 PCI NIC, upgrade kernel, remove 1 PCI NIC
b) Install 1 PCI NIC, configure single NIC setup, upgrade kernel, switch to double NIC setup.

If a), what manual configuration is necessary following removing the PCI NIC?

I'm planning on giving 0810 a try in a few weeks but I don't have time at the moment to fiddle with an alpha release. My gf is patiently waiting for the mess of "computer guts" in the living room to get cleaned up :P



Users / 0 Replies Suggestion/Request
« on: April 15, 2009, 07:26:23 pm »
Is there any chance we could have someone (with adequate linuxmce experience, I'd volunteer but I'm new) in the forum who on a regular basis could go through past posts that have 0 replies and give _some sort_ of useful reply? Even if it's merely "Read the f*cking FAQ" or "You don't make any sense, please clarify". There are times when such 0 reply posts are encountered during forum searches where the answers to such questions are of interest - there seems to be little point in re-posting the question since it wasn't answered the first time.

Some of my own posts have not been answered and they are questions posted following reasonable amounts of research. The lack of response is confusing (Did I miss something in the FAQ or Wiki? Does no one know the answer? Did I search through the forum using poor search terms? Should I keep looking or am I wasting my time? Am I trying to do something with linuxmce that it can't do?)

I think linuxmce would be much more accessible to less advanced users if this was done - I realize no one has the time as everyone is busy making linuxmce even more amazing than it already is.

I'm not trying to be whiny or demanding as I'm grateful for the many hours that have been donated to this project to date. I just thought it would be a good thing from an accessibility standpoint.


Users / UI2 MD control (newb)
« on: April 09, 2009, 02:19:36 am »
Still waiting for my Fiire remote to arrive, until then I'm stuck learning with my keyboard + mouse. I've finished (hopefully) messing around with hardware and reinstalling the system. Here's what I'm finding from a user interface POV:

1)I've noticed that if I begin watching a movie I can press F2 and I am returned to the video list where it last was, with all the filters I had set.

If during the movie I adjust the volume or jog forward or back and THEN press F2, I do not return to the video list. Instead I get the most recently used control (volume or shuttle, except the graphics are messed up because the control is a black strip). I then have to press F1 and navigate back to  the video list, after which the filters are all reset. Is this normal behaviour? If yes, is there a function to return to the video list as it last was regardless of having previously adjusted the volume or position?

2) If I select a video from the video list and then select "MOVE", nothing happens.

3) If I create a bookmark, and then try to delete it via the video list, it will not delete. I must play the bookmark, then press F1, then go to bookmarks in this file, and then delete the bookmark.

Users / Matrix-Style Attribute Editor
« on: April 05, 2009, 02:51:46 am »
Linuxmce finds the embedded id3 attribute data for my mp3s (managed via iTunes) fine.

I have a huge number of video files (home videos, downloaded adult entertainment, etc) in formats that have no embedded tagging system and can not be identified via internet lookup. I have begun adding attributes via the web admin but it is going to take me too long since the UI isn't very efficient for this kind of data entry. Is there a tool that allows me to either modify the mysql database itself or .id3 tag files using a matrix-style UI (like iTunes)? I read in one post that the .id3 files were proprietary so I'm guessing the answer is no.

If no, are there plans for such a thing?

Users / Remote: what to buy
« on: March 30, 2009, 09:06:42 pm »
From my preliminary (mouse+keyboard) tinkering with linuxmce, I love it. However, the remote is a make-or-break aspect of the system.

I understand Fiire is bankrupt, but that there are efforts to bring a replacement remote to market. Am I best to try to find a used Fiire remote, or wait for this alleged replacement? If I wait, are we talking weeks, months, years?

I really want an accelerometer-based or motion-tracking type remote, not a classic button-push-only type.
