Developers / Re: First test of Dianemo 10.10 to Dianemo 11.04 upgrade
« on: July 25, 2011, 11:27:35 am »
Hi Andrew,
This is a very impressive move forward, you and your team should be congratulated on such an achievement. Can I ask whether this marks a milestone for upgrades for 7.10 customers also. If not is there any news on this also?

Thanks

Back in Feb, 2010 it was announced that Dianemo systems supported the GT220, including audio over HDMI http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8880.msg66118#msg66118
I received my system in late september, 2010
I don't think that this is stretching things too far to say the least.

Thanks Andrew,
I had pretty much resolved myself to this after reading the wiki page. Although i would like to point out the advice to go down the GT220 or above route came from Winston. Regardless of this, do you have any recommendations for a usb based sound card that may work preferrably plug and play? The wiki only refers to PCI based cards.

Thanks

Users / Sound Card Options
« on: June 16, 2011, 11:56:58 am »
Hi guys, I am probably missing a simple option here but any advice would be great. I decided to add an Asus 1gb ENGT220 graphics card to my Dianemo 710 system and utlise it as the main MD in the living room. The problem I encountered is that I wasn't able to use HDMI audio after rerunning the audio/video setup. Checking the wiki it seems this is an issue with my MB according to this http://wiki2.linuxmce.org/index.php/NVidia_GT220_HDMI_sound (although i think the  Asus P7M-F WS should read P7F-M instead??) So although I have great video, no sound. Easiest thing would be to use the pci sound card, except I had to remove this as the heatsink from the card blocks the adjacent PCI slot! I want to be able to use at least 5.1 audio so digital output is essential, anybody had any experience with decent usb or other sound cards which might fit the bill?

Cheers
Garath

Thanks Andrew,
This may be my problem. I do not think I am running 10.10, rather still 7.10 Shouldn't this update be automatic? Is there an easy way to verify this?

thanks

Hi Andrew,
Unfortunately I have not been able to get the new version to work. I followed your earlier post and have ensured IP settings are correct etc. Is the new version only compatible with Dianemo 10.10 as I don't think that my Nerve Centre has updated to the newest version yet.

Hi Andrew,
I successfully had v1.0 working great on my Dianemo Core. After updating to v1.1 and following wiki instructions I am getting 'connection error - communication error'. i am using an early gen ipod touch running iOS 4.2.1 Any ideas on what this may be?

Thanks

Installation issues / Re: Only eth0 works
« on: August 15, 2010, 12:14:16 pm »
Hi Tred,
I have been having similiar issues with my install and originally thought it may have been due to a conflict with my modem/router however my setup is in accordance with recommended setup on wiki. It now seems that the internal Eth1 network seems fine after reboot but only for  short perod of time after that webadmin is unable to be accessed from any device connected to Eth1 switch nor access internet.

Not sure if it is related but in this post http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=10365.0 the DCERouter kept crashing after 14minutes. Anybody know if the issues are related and if the fix used is applicable. I will give it a go when i get home.

Thanks

Installation issues / Re: Kworld T399u and DHCP

Hi Barney,
Thanks for the welcome and the quick reply. I have followed your advice and rechecked the myth setup however only the pvr 500 is showing up (/dev/video0 and /dev/video1) under 'capture cards'. Is this the section you are referring to?

As for the dhcp issues, internal NIC is Asus NX1101 and is supported OTB in 8.10 according to wiki. Latest is that internet becomes available to devices after 3 refreshes of browser, but doesn't always successfully load the page. I do recall seeing earlier posts with similiar issues but can't seem to find again.

Thanks again

Installation issues / Kworld T399u and DHCP
« on: August 11, 2010, 05:23:50 pm »
Greetings all  :)

This is my first post so please...be kind. After much lurking, reading and investigation I have migrated from windoze to LMCE after finding, like many, that win MCE isnt cutting it. After multiple installations I seem to have a stable, albeit with niggling problems-fighting with DHCP, beta install (snapshot 23148).

However, even with the help of the wiki and debs from totallymaxed i cannot seem to get my Kworld T399u tuners recognised. I have followed the wiki page

Once i had Kubuntu installed i tried installing the debs but I had an error and was unable to install the v4l firmware (presumably due to the changes Mandingo has been working on with PnP?-i am unsure) but as per but the wiki I continued and the v4l modules successfully built and installed. The cards were not detected. As per the wiki advice i copied the latest firmware file as recommended, rebooted and initialised the linuxmce install from kde. No apparent issues on install and i successfully booted and went through av wizard-cards did not show. I have a stable and functional base but don’t seem to be able to get LMCE to detect the cards. Being the complete linux newb that I am, i am not sure where to start looking to find a solution, especially as it seems that it should have worked.

My second issue is just as annoyingly simple i am sure. The modem for my adsl 2+ connection is an isp provided router/modem tpllink TD8840. Again I have followed the wiki and all advice for a dual nic standard setup. eth0 is connected to 'external' network ie modem router (with DHCP) and given 192.168.1.102 IP second eth1 (supported OTB asus GB PCI NIC) connected to a seperate dlink 8port GB switch. From what I can understand the setup seems and is configured as it should be; LMCE detects my other compluters on interna network etc and assigns 192.168.80.XX IP addresses. However there is no internet connection for these devices. I am not looking for any unsupported setup, simply to let LMCE to its job, i must be missing something...Disabling DHCP on router modem has caused headaches

Motherboard is an Asus m4n78-Pro with 2gb ram 320gb system drive,onboard gig NIC and asus supported pci nic. I also have a haupaugge pvr mce500 card which I plan to use (at a later date) for capture of a sat tv box. 

I am learning quickly, but any help or a pointer in the right direction would be appreciated

TIA
Garath
