Does LMCE Orbiter work on android, and if so, to what extent? I Might be getting the G1 in the summer, and as I've said before, all gadgets that I get from now on, I'm trying to have them as LMCE-compatible as possible.

Users / Eyetoy as Security Camera?
« on: May 13, 2009, 08:49:39 pm »
Hey, I have a PS2 Eyetoy (Namtai version), and was wondering if I could use it as a security Camera for my soon-to-be Linux Media Center.
It is of reasonable quality, and is quit slim-line, making it very good as a security camera (will probably hide it, as it has a bright Blue LED in it). I have WinXP drivers for anyone if it will help, or does it work out the box?

Any help appreciated, as I want to make a perfect set up that will, well, be perfect.

I'd prefer to have the foundation set up as legal entity.

br, Hari

I am in agreement with this 100%, BUT. We must remember that his will require both a lot of work, and some people will have to take it on full time. So long as everyone knows the ins and outs of it then you guys have, as ever, my full support and co-operation.
As said in theother thread, I believe that LMCE will become the firefox of the MCE Market, and especially now, with Open Source being so popular, and also with the growing market of Media centers.

Yeh, but OSS is hurried along by donations, and seeing as we are neither requiring or even advertising donations at the moment (other than a very small link on the main page), I do not see how this goes against Libre software ideals. It's merely showing appreciation for (an amazing) piece of development, which will also speed up and improve said development. Mozilla is an example of this. Entirely open, but also very fast development time. Why? Donations.

I truly believe that LMCE could be the Firefox of the Media Centres, as it is just so damn amazing, how can't it be? All we need is more hardware suppport, and less bugs, and this really will get a HUGE market share. I mean that truly and honestly.

You do know, that OSS is first and foremost not a price tag, don't you?

I develop stuff I care about.

People proposed giving me an iPod Touch so I could better work on the iOrbiter. I declined. The reason: Simple. If I would take the iPod Touch, I would be obliged to do the iOrbiter. But I do the iOrbiter (just as an example), because it is fun, and every now and then, I feel like working on it.

Other developers do see it differently, and accept moneytary donation to get things done. This is fine with me, as long as it is what they want. Nobody on the people doing development for LinuxMCE is getting rich. Most of the endless hours are spend working on the software to make it better, to bring it forward without a penny.

However, if someone does want a very specific feature, the person has the choice. Either, dive in, and do it yourself, or, coerce one developer into thinking it is good for him/her to do it, or three: Make some donations to get things done. But you know what: What ever way you choose, it stay Open Source Software. Open in the sense of speech. And that's what it is all about, imho.

Here here. I still think that a central fund would speed development along, as it would help the macro-development along, as opposed to independent features. I would also be more than willing to donate, but as I currently have little knowledge of what I want in specific features,only I just want LMCE to be better than it is (small things, like bits of the UI, etc), and as my knowledge of coding is up there with Paris Hilton's knowledge quantum entanglement, I can't do it; SO, having a general fund for those little projects I think would help. Obviously it should be donations, and not payment. The money  would cover equipment, software, hardware etc.

I for one would support a central fund so yyou can just click 'donate' on the main page, and you donate to the project as a whole.

Users / Orbiter on Nokia E71, and
« on: April 26, 2009, 07:52:59 pm »
As some of you may know, I am planning out a Media Center for some point in the future, and whilst it'll initially be VistaMCE, as I don't have any need for the features( like Home automation, VoIP etc) yet, but I intend to build it so that when I do need those features, the upgrade (as it definitely is an upgrade) to an LMCE Hybrid is as smooth as possible.
I just want to check, however, that everything will work with LMCE, and then I can see about where to get the funds to buy the bits.
Currently, I'm looking at:

(Already have Motherboard, and case no idea what it's called though, but it has 3 PCI ports, and a graphics slot.)
CPU: AMD Athlon 3200+ (It might be a 3400+, not sure. No overclocking done or planned) (Already Got)
RAM: 1GB atm, and will probably get another 2GB, so 3 GB overall.
GPU: nVidea GeForce 8500 (Already Got)
TV Tuner: WinTV Nova-TD 500 (It's not a Diversity model, so I THINK it's supported :/)
SPU: either this, or this.
Disk Drive: A cheapo DVD drive, connected via a SATA -> USB thing. Does LMCE support this?

And of course, another NIC.

Another thing: how well does LMCE support the use of the E71 as an Orbiter? I want to get one, but will have second thoughts if it doesn't support it.

Thankyou all very much in advance!

Users / Can I use LMCE?
« on: April 22, 2009, 11:13:30 pm »
Just a question, but seeing as I'm probably building a Media Center anyway, I might as well ask. I am currently behind a combined Router/Modem, so I obviously couldn't get my planned hybrid between them (i know there are thin clients, but I don't think there's one that would fit INSIDE the box  :D) So I was wondering If it would still havre full functionality?

Why does LMCE have to be so good? Damned developers, always making things better, and causing me to fall in love with LMCE all over again!

Users / Windows MP?
« on: April 21, 2009, 06:56:33 pm »
Is LMCE able to send music to WMP? Hard to explain (especially as I am really rather tired atm), but with WMP, you can play music from other computers in the network, and, as I am going to keep using windows Vista on my current computer for gaming and such, I would like to still access my music on that, and, as I use WMP for my music anyway, I might as well use that. Or would you reccomend something else?

okay, so that's that sorted then. What about my hatrdware? will that work with the future upgrade?

ok. So LMCE effectively acts as a router. will this impact internet speeds at all?
