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.

Users / [SOLVED] Some technical questions about the graphical resolution.
« on: November 13, 2009, 01:39:43 pm »
Hi Developers,
as i understood, using a hybrid configuration (core and media director on the same unit) brings two overlayed windows:
one from the core and the other from the media director.
after installing and defining (AVWizard) the hdmi 720p resolution, i had to scale the window down (4 times -) so the yellow arrows fit the borders. But i guess this downscale was not reflected in the xorg.conf and the media director (admin website -> media director). In the xorg.conf file, the resolution (modeline) is 1280 x 720 and media director 1280 720/60 720p.
This obviously does not fit my screen, being the displayed screen larger than the monitor screen.
I tryed to change the media director resolution (admin website) to 1024 520 (which fits correcty), regenerated the md image, but the lmce screen became shifted up left.
Tryed to look at /usr/pluto/bin files, but the resolutions are hardcoded.
In such a case, should the resolution be changed at xorg.conf and md image? And how to set a custom resolution to AVWizard?

Would there be any incompatibility using the 2.6.28 kernel (from jaunty)? On another partition i tested kubuntu 8.10 with 2.6.28 kernel and got hdmi audio working..... (this kernel question is not related to the video resoluton issue).

TIA, Paulo

Installation issues / LMCE 0810 resolution and adding orbiter problem.
« on: November 11, 2009, 05:05:51 pm »
Hi,
as a newbie in LinuxMCE, some questions may sound trivial, but i'm not finding out how to solve them.
MOBO: Asus M3N78-VM with aditional SPDIF OUT/COA+OPT 4pin SPDIF (part #300290699535).
TV: Philips 37PFL7312 LCD HD Ready (using HDMI)
Orbiter: Nokia N95 8GB
Bluetooth dongle: Motorola
Amplifier: Yamaha DSP-A1 (using optical)

Intallation procedures:
SATA disks as AHCI (HD and DVD drive)
install Kubuntu 8.10
dist update + dist upgrade
AlsaUpgrade 1.0.21-4
Linux MCE 0810
All with a LG monitor.

After install:
audiovideowizard
video -> dvi/hdmi-1 720p 60 Hz -> had to scale down (- 4 times) to fit the arrows on screen
sound -> spdif optical -> plays "anlog", dolby and dts.
Install up to end.

After install:
HDMI lmce screen ok, but calling KDE, the size of the screen is 1280x720, but the window size is larger than my lcd screen.
Tryed to add the orbiter at admin website -> orbiters, but the JavaMO is not sent to the phone.
The kmix does not work (i.e, i can not rise or reduce the volume using the volume key of the keyboard, neither under kde or lmce, but before installing lmce, kmix was working and volume controled by the keyboad volume key).
Having a pixelview play tv pm 4900 card with it's remote control, added remote control pixelview play tv pro lirc and pixelview ir receiver at admin website. lirc was downloaded.
Playing a DVD, the initial analog sound (when in menu) does not play, but on audiovideowizard, it works. Selecting the audio DTS on DVD menu, it plays well.


Questions:
1) is there a way to rescale the KDE resolution so it fits the LCD screen?
2) how can i add the N95 orbiter and have the JavaMO being sent to it?
3) how can the pixelview remote be recognized by the system
4) how to have all the audio working?

Best regards,

Paulo

Installation issues / Pixelview configuration on LMCE 0810?
« on: November 01, 2009, 07:49:20 pm »
Hi all,
after some work, i did succeed install LinuxMCE 0810. Before installing the MCE part, i did install Kubuntu 8.10 and did the tests with my Prolink Pixelview PlayTV MPEG2 PV-M4900 and the remote control, using lirc. Everything worked fine.
After installing MCE 0810, the kernel shows the bttv loaded, but i could not find how to tell MCE to recognize my TV card and how to use the remote control.
Do anyone know how to have it working under MCE?
Best regards,
Paulo
