Also, one more question (you're getting bored of these now), but could I have a set up where I could have computers in the house that are windows? I'll show an example:

INTERNET -> Modem/router -> LMCE Core - > Another Router -> Cool stuff
                                      ->Gaming Computer, etc.

Like that?

Stumbled accross the site about a month ago, whilst looking for Media Center Stuff, and so far, it's all questions for me.
I will be using Vista for the moment, bbut as soon as I can, I will upgrade to LMCE.

Hey. I'm going to be setting up a Media center in my bedroom, but I've come to the conclusion that I won't be needing LinuxMCE yet, as I just don't need all it's features.
HOWEVER. I want to be able to change to LinuxMCE in the future, when I do need all of it's features, and I can actually implement them. ASo I'm going to build it so that the ransition will be as smooth as possible wheen I do change from Vista to LinuxMCE, ie, all supported Hardware.

Can someone look at the planned hardware, and say whether it will run LinuxMCE well as a hybrid?


DVD Drive
Hauppauge WinTV Nova-TD 500 Dual digital DVB-T PCI TV Tuner card (Is this the same as the Nova-T 500?)
Creative Sound Blaster Audigy SE 7.1

And perhaps using an old Eyetoy (Namtai version) as a Camera.

What do you think? obviously I'll also put in a second NIC, but I don't need one yet.

Thanks in advance, and again respect to the developers.

as others say, it depends what you want it for.

I only want a media center, so I will be using WinMCE until I get around to getting home automation and stuff, when I will switch to LMCE, which I am definitely keeping an eye on, and will probably get when I move to Uni anyway.

You have to remember as well, that this was made by amateurs, who have other jobs. What they have made, is nothing short of amazing. IT CAN CONTROL YOUR HOUSE. IT CAN RING YOU WHEN YOUR HOUSE IS BEING BURGLED AND LET YOU TALK TO THE BURGLAR.
That my friend, is OMGWTFBBQ-amazing. Seriously.

would GlovePIE work? I don't know if it works on kubuntu, but if it does, then it should solve all problems. Plus it's got really nifty actions, so you could set it up, so thatr a jerk to the right would skip forward, a jerk to the left would skip back, and so much more.

Hey there, First post, etc. etc.
I'm thinking of building a Media center in my bedroom, and am looking at LinuxMCE as a possiblity (will probably initially sret up with WinMCE, but will probably evewntually change).
I have a couple of questions though:
  • Does Linux MCE have glovePIE support, and if so, has anyone used a Wii-Mote with it? If so, then that would be BRILLIANT for me, as I've been thinking of using WiiMotes, as it has a bit COOL factor, plus, they're cheaper. And also, Glovepie is very customisable, which makes things LOVELY.
  • How much do you think it would cost for a basic media/lighting automation system? I already have the box, just no monitor, or any other goodies. I will initially only be using it in just the one room, more as a test than anything, so I don't need much.
  • Does LMCE play HD movies?
  • Does it have bittorrent support?

Thankyou so much in advance, and thankyou anyway to the developers, you do truly rock. I mean it. And not just ordinarry Sandtone Rock. You're godamn Quartz Rock Rocking. I don't know where I'm going with this. At all.
