Thanks for the reply's. You will have to give me some slack, I'm a welder who has ran some unix web servers in the past. I'm a little misunderstood about...
You then need to affix the emitter nubs to each of your AV devices you wish to control.
And then make device templates for them in the web admin. The device templates tell LinuxMCE about your devices, and in the case of AV equipment it describes the commands the device can handle, as well as any inputs it may have or provide. Your TV has inputs for HDMI 1/2/3, and/or Component, etc.. This will allow LinuxMCE to understand what you have.
Once you make device templates, you can then use the setup wizard to select your AV devices, and tell LinuxMCE how they are connected together, in which input ports etc. LinuxMCE will use this information to send IR pulses to the relevant gear to switch inputs, etc.
What I get from this is lmce will switch the inputs on the tv to whatever might be connected to them and take control of that device. Once the device is switched how will you control lmce? Maybe some kinda of dual monitor support? My plan once its doable is to have all my equipment connected to the lmce box. The main thing is I want full HD quality 1080p if at all possible.
Thanks, I am getting closer to actually installing the os. lol
