I think I'm having this issue or something similar to it. I'd call them diagonal clouds, not lines, and they look a bit like the northern lights. The divx movies play back in black and white, but the clouds have a single-colored hue that changes depending on the material.

It's fixed if I switch to xv. Problem is that the UI2-masked responsiveness is poor and movie playback is stutter-y with xv (opengl's much better), so I'm stuck switching to xv each time I want to watch certain DivX movies.

It's a fairly fresh build, you guys think a rebuild is worth it?

Users / Re: What softphone to use for external winxp client ?
« on: April 20, 2009, 07:20:04 pm »
Bulek,

Did you ever have any luck with this? I'm having a similar-sounding issue with registering my sip softphone from an outside pc. I've got no router between the core and my cable modem, I've disabled the firewall, set the appropriate ports to core_internal in the pluto-admin firewall settings. Asterisk CLI shows no indication that it is getting any registration requests (i've tried 'sip set debug')

I've tried SJphone and X-lite with the same results. I can ping the core from the remote pc, and 5060 is open.

I have no problem setting up softphones on the internal network.

Thanks,

Dave

Sorry for my ignorance, but is the implication that this is not worth the hassle? I too am facing the same issue with regards to WAF. If the video list could remember the filters which were last used that would be a big improvement.

any  specific threads in mind?

Example:

I've seen others but I've lost them.

Here's one of mine (mainly interested in point #1):

If there are no replies, then most likely nobody knows the answer or they are biting their tongue because if you had searched the wiki, forum, or google, you would find the answer.

1) In the case that no one knows the answer, the person may assume that the lack or replies is due to the information being easily available and go on a fruitless frustrating search.

2) In the case that the information is easily available the person may have looked but overlooked it. They may assume that no one knows the answer and be frustrated by the lack of support.

Either situation drives people away from the community which I think is a bad thing. I guess the way I see it, a harsh RTFF answer is better than no answer. At least then you identify that the information does exist and you eliminate the possibility that no one knows the answer.

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.

Thanks Pnuts,

I'll take a look at it. Only seems to do avi and divx files, but it would be a start.

If there's info somewhere on the .id3 file format, someone could easily write a 3rd party app to handle this. Integration into linuxmce would be prefered obviously, but in the mean time...

I take it from the lack of responses and page views that

a) there is no such tool
b) there is no desire for such a tool

from which I derive that

c) linuxmce is geared more towards media produced by Big Media Corps versus stuff made by the little guy which isn't catalogued on internet databases. This is a little confusing since I always understood the open source community to stand up for the little guy.

Anyways, I'm hoping someone will point out that being a newby, I have

i)  overlooked an obvious feature and that the lack of responses is merely tongue-biting.
ii) asked about feature which is obviously needed and has been asked for too many times before (though my forum-searches have not revealed such), resulting in tongue-biting.

Thanks!

Dave

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?

I'm not aware of any 'un-announced' Fiire remote replacements just round the corner. If you like the Gyration style remote's then why not buy a Gyration and make a template for it instead.

FYI, I got that rumor from:

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.

Technically anything that carries two or more separate SIGNALS is considered component. That being said, the consumer understands "component" to mean 3xRCA (6 conductor, 3 signal) and "S-video" means 4 conductor, 2 signal. Different words mean different things to different people.

On my 1080p Panasonic Plasma (connected via DVI->HDMI) I enabled 1:1 pixel mapping mode within the plasma's settings, which scaled the image correctly. After this I needed to adjust the horizontal and vertical position to center the image. Has the OP tried this, and is there anything wrong with this approach from a picture quality point of view?
