Users / Re: [SOLVED] SPDIF / HDMI Sound problem LinuxMCE 0810
« on: November 19, 2009, 09:49:05 pm »
Yes, every time i tryed a change, i rebooted, just to be sure that everything was starting fresh.
May sound stupid, but LinuxMCE 0810 is still beta, and sometimes i' m unsure.
Under pure linux, i would restart the services from /etc/init.d.
Regarding mythtv, i' m really a newbie and need to read and test before being able to give some opinion about.... but for me, mythtv seams confusing....
I' m looking for a ir remote (sender and receiver) really plug and play for LinuxMCE.... some hints? In Brazil is very hard to find good stuff.... usually i need to buy it on ebay... like the pvr-150. Just could not find it in Brazil.
BTW, the test i' m doing with pvr-150 is using the coax input.... not tested yet the separate video and audio inputs....

Yes, i do have audio in mythtv. But please don' t ask me how..... until yesterday, mythtv was behaving weird, i.e every action i asked, it entered and returned back to the main menu.
The only thing that happened was that i removed the pvr-150 card (webadmin, wizard, devices, media director, pvr capture card) and then rebooted.
After boot, lmce recognized again my card... and suddenly, i had 2 pvr-150 cards.
Well, after trying the audio stuff today, i gave mythtv a try (watch tv from the lmce menu) and it worked, video and audio.

Thx again.

You are right. I set to manual setting, and doing this, i' m not able to check the digital AC3 passthrough :(

I can't explain, but after giving up the myth tv, i tryed it today, after a problem (SOLVED) on the sound configuration. It started to work.
Don' t ask me what happened. I just don' t know :(

Hi jimbodude,
i tried your hit, and it worked. I did try another way, leaving WebAdmin -> Wizard -> Device -> Media Director: Audio Settings = SPDIF Toslink and unchecked the Use AC3/DTS pass-through option.
It also worked and my PVR-150 under mythtv is working with sound.
Now all my video files and DVD's are working with sound, including on menu (did not work before).
Regarding the PVR-150, i simply don' t know how, but the problem of returning to the main menu after selecting an option on mythtv. Now it's playing TV with sound.
Thx a lot for the hint!

Users / [SOLVED] SPDIF / HDMI Sound problem LinuxMCE 0810

Hi all,

my MOBO is an ASUS M3N78-VM, with the ASUS SPDIF-SA expansion port.
The optical SPDIF port of the MOBO is not recognized, but the one from the expansion port is.
So, i was able to have optical SPDIF output to the AV amp, and selecting it from the AVWizard menu works (audio volume, dolby and dts).

Problem: some video files (DVD images - diretory with audio_ts and video_ts) plays the image, but not sound.

To verify what is happening, i booted another partion, with kubuntu 8.10, same kernel (2.6.25-15), same alsa upgrades (1.0.21-4). Using kaffeine, the same file played with sound.
Sometimes, when kde is starting (kmix is launched) i can hear the "kde welcome" sound from the hdmi (my LCD TV),  on this environment.

Using Webadmin -> media director  under sound card = standard sound, audio settings = SPDIF Toslink and Use AC3/DTS pass-through is marked.

The output of the alsa settings (LinuxMCE environment) are:

pcm.!default asym_spdif

Beside this, the volume is not manageable.
I also tried, under LinuxMCE to use KDE, but under this environment, aplay -l return no cards, but sudo aplay -l returns the card list.
libdvdcss2, w32codecs are installed (i did it after installing LinuxMCE 0810).
Is there any error i could not find, in order when playing this files having the sound working?

TIA,

Paulo

Users / [SOLVED] changing additional disk structure
« on: November 18, 2009, 09:14:15 pm »
Hi all,
after installing 0810, another partition was recognized during setup (/dev/sda6) and i made it public, but not using LinuxMCE structure. This partition was mounted under /mnt/devices/35 and with a symbolic link to /home/public/data/other/SAMSUNGxxxxxx.
How can i change the structure of this partition so i can hold public and private files, recognized by LinuxMCE (yes, i can create all the directory tree, but will it be recognized under /home/public/data/other)?
TIA,
Paulo

Hi,
after installing LinuxMCE 0810, with a Hauppauge PVR-150, on the MD menu i click on media and select TV. Ok, mythtv is started and i pick watch tv. it enters and gets back to menu again. All other actions (media library, etc...) produces the same: resets to mythtv main menu again.
Anyone faced this problem?
TIA,
Paulo

Hi jimbodude,
thx for answering......

- http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Custom_Display_Resolutions - thx for the link.... i did not find it until your info.

- You have run a media scan on the /home/ directory.  That was a very poor choice...  - yes, poor choice :( i will try to apt-get the original file.... and not run media scan again from /home.....

Again.. thx... will post the results.

Users / Question about ripping and others..
« on: November 16, 2009, 03:49:31 pm »
Hi,
did write before about some issues, never got an answer......
- About ripping: i ripped a cd, but the encoding was wrong.... and after changing the encoding from ogg to mp3, i want to rip the cd again, but putting the same cd, i see the rip icon marked. How to reset it, in order to be able to rip the cd again with the desired encoding?
- Video resolution: on a hybrid core/md. i think that the orbiter resolution should reflect in the xorg.conf file, but i'm really not finding the way to do it.
- i did run /usr/pluto/bin/UpdateMedia, and the avwizard video files appeared in the index media files. Is there a way to run it and not including the the avwizard files?
- prolink pixelview card. i gave up, because could not find how to make mythtv use it (but tvtime uses it fine). gonna get a hauppauge pvr-150.
TIA

The question about the kernel was only regarding to HDMI audio. For LinuxMCE 0810 i'm using the 2.6.27-15. For testing purposes like HDMI video resolution and audio, i'm using another partition with kubuntu 8.10 but with the 2.6.28 kernel from kubuntu jaunty. As many reported to have a MOBO with HDMI capabilities and not having HDMI audo, i decided to test a newer kernel, but outside (initially) LinuxMCE 0810.
