Users / Possible fundraiser - a book
« on: December 09, 2009, 11:36:14 pm »
I am not sure if this was discussed at any lengths, did not come across anything on my initial search except reference to a development guide.

I think a book, on linuxmce - kind of broad yes - would sell well, I will buy one for sure. I just came from by a partner of mine, who into networking/firewall and uses pfsense, who just bought a book they created on installing, configuring, ... pfsense (does not seem to focus on the new alpha), seems like its selling well.

I am on the belief such a book on linuxmce - not talking about a development guide, will gladly pay for that too - would sell well.

Just my two cents, no harm intended.

Users / Mplayer initialization error
« on: December 04, 2009, 01:06:33 am »
First I will like to indicate if this post seems silly, I am not coder in writing application, only experience is minimal best, doing my degree which was in pascal and Java.

Here goes:

When trying to use mplayer, through Mplayer_Player, I am getting the following error in the log:
MPlayer engine didn't set up within 10 seconds, something is wrong <0xb7101b
Return code: 141
3       12/03/09 19:12:19       26 (spawning-device)    Device died... count=1/50 dev=26


From my investigation, I think the error is coming from this condition in the Mplayer_Player.cpp file, the error output highlighted.
if (m_pPlayerEngine->GetEngineState()==MPlayerEngine::PLAYBACK_FINISHED)
      g_pPlayerInstance = this;
      g_iMplayerChildPID = m_pPlayerEngine->GetChildPID();
      struct sigaction new_action;
      new_action.sa_sigaction = SignalHandler_CHLD;
      new_action.sa_flags = SA_SIGINFO /*| SA_NOCLDSTOP*/;      
      sigaction(SIGCHLD, &new_action, NULL);
      LoggerWrapper::GetInstance()->Write(LV_STATUS, "MPlayer - installed SIGCHLD handler");
      signal(SIGPIPE, SignalHandler_PIPE);
      LoggerWrapper::GetInstance()->Write(LV_STATUS, "MPlayer - installed SIGPIPE handler");

      LoggerWrapper::GetInstance()->Write(LV_STATUS, "MPlayer engine initialized and ready to go");
      LoggerWrapper::GetInstance()->Write(LV_CRITICAL, "MPlayer engine didn't set up within 10 seconds, something is wrong");

Prior to the above quote, the following suppose to insure the black file is finished played.
while (m_pPlayerEngine->GetEngineState()!=MPlayerEngine::PLAYBACK_FINISHED && iCounter!=0)

I am stating the obvious, when saying the condition is returning false, in either the while - so it exists early and then the if fails or in the if condition so the else kicks in.

Any information - logic, on what supposed to happen in this line: m_pPlayerEngine->GetEngineState()!=MPlayerEngine::PLAYBACK_FINISHED, found below in MPlayerEngine, have not fully gotten a handle on this
MPlayerEngine::EngineState MPlayerEngine::GetEngineState() {
   PLUTO_SAFETY_LOCK(stateLock, m_engineStateMutex);
   return m_eEngineState;

Also, In my ignorance is it possible the sleep time is to long, or the loop to short.

Once I get this to work, plan on editing to get mplayer working with vdpau, I know xine already works with beta2. Have not upgraded to beta2 as yet, fixing my test machine for that, so I know what is entailed, minimize transition for the family.

Is this fixed by chance in beta2?

Thanks for all assistance

Users / Multiple USBUIRT on core
« on: December 02, 2009, 07:49:29 pm »
I am using 810 beta.

I wanted to set up multiple USBUIRT on the core, but by default, it seems to be not allowing me. Looking at the template, thinking I can create my own using the existing template and manually adding the device, I see there is a value set ( 162 Only one per pc(bool) = 1).

Is it possible to safely modify this value to, lets say 2/3, if it would break any functionality and if it would allow me to achieve my intended goal, multiple USBUIRT on the core?

My test hybrid, decided to quit, I would have tested it there.

Users / Playback of directv box 810 beta
« on: November 03, 2009, 09:18:47 pm »
Good Afternoon All,

I have installed 810 Beta created a device template for my Directv Receiver (model #L12T-700) here in the Cariibbean - choosing the option for liveTv in the drop down list for the type of device.

I have added a pvr-500 it installed all the required software, ran the wizard and connected the device to the svideo port, and assign it to all rooms.

I was of the opinion when I clicked on the device, it would be able to pause its feed as with live tv, but the device is being played by xine not myth and not getting any such functionality; is this standard or did I mess things up!

Also on another note, does 810 automatically update the community with new devices created, or this is a manual process?

Thanks for all assistance forth coming.
