Installation issues / Re: NVIDA H264 Codec
« on: February 16, 2010, 11:15:26 am »
Hi Richard,
Just some further info I can play 30Mbit mpegs on the core and across the network on the other md so it must be something to do with the H264 codec that my Panasonic HD camera uses that MCE does not like........if anybody has any feedback that would be appreciated

Hi Richard,
Great news that someone has a 7600GS working I assume from your post that you can watch high bit rate HD videos without problems,

I am running gigabit lan, and it does the same on the core/hybrid or streaming to the md. I thought the 7600GS would be fine so I am not sure where the issue is as I can play back any other types of files with out problems. I have also set the file type as Blu-ray but this made no difference and have tried all the video card accelerations as well. The files are on the core in a software raid 5 with 5 x 1.5TB Seagate HDD's

I am running a core and MD both with NVIDA 7600GS video cards which under XP will playback my home videos which are 30Mb bit rate .m2ts files but under linuxmce the videos are in slow motion though the sound is fine also some of them have horz lines through them, is it time to upgrade to newer 9 series video cards to overcome this. Currently running 810 b2 with NVIDA 195.36 drivers...any advice is always much appreciated

Users / WebDT366 [SOLVED]
« on: February 13, 2010, 02:02:46 am »
I have a WebDT366 web pad and I am wondering can you adjust the brightness of the screen somehow.......checked out google use the 3rd button from the left on the bottom row in conjunction with the 4 way pad on the rhs and you can turn the brightness up and down

I have tried searching everywhere to turn off auto resume after it was mistakenly turned on.............where do you find the option so it brings up the screen and gives you the option to resume from where you left off or not when playing back a movie, I am tipping it is something really simple and I am trying to hard to find it, any help is much appreciated as usual.


Installation issues / Re: Can't access web admin

Hey Rob,
You can access the web admin from anywhere, I set the options so I can access it outside through port 9000 using a dedicated port or otherwise the default is port 80 so it will depend on your setup as to which one you use. I use port 9000 as I already have a dedicated web server on port 80 for our home page.

http://your_ip_address/lmce-admin or if you are using another port rather than port 80 then you would need to change it to the following example http://your_ip_address:9000/lmce-admin where 9000 is the port you have specified in the outside access page of web-admin, this would then have to be port forwarded in your adsl modem router as well. For internal on any pc just use with your login details as per Kezza's post.

Hope this helps

Have you got your network setup where the linuxmce is the DHCP server, as Kezza said check the wiki's for the correct network setup as that is where the most problems come from, Users decide not to have two nic's and go for a non standard setup.

If you have two nic's with one going direct to your internet and the other nic to your home network all will work fine. One other thing you want to check will be the network configuration page of the web admin of course once you can access it, to make sure eth0 and eth1 are the correct way around


As per my previous posts I can get other VOIP providers working with my existing hardware setup but not TPG, if anybody has any suggestions as to why I cannot get TPG's SIP to register I would appreciate it.

Thanks for the tip.........Tried both suggestions still no luck.


Installation issues / Re: HD Homerun Help
« on: January 28, 2010, 12:56:56 pm »
I live in the hills in Melbourne Victoria and all the main Melbourne TV transmitters are on top the Mt Dandenong, I am on the side of this mountain literally 400mtrs from the towers but just below and behind them so all we get from them digital reflections so when you use a spectrum analyser you get all the channels but the bit error rate is over the top, so at the moment I have mounted a phased array on the roof and pointed it at Bendigo TV transmitters which are over 200kms away and I pick up Digital TV from there. After reading the forums on the HD Homerun it seemed that it had better tuners than most other available options but so far my TVIX M-5130 box works better as the HD Homerun keeps losing lock so it is a bit frustrating. I am currently looking at putting up another antenna in a pine tree at the front of the house pointing at Como in South Yarra near the CBD so I can get a stronger signal and then most of my problems should disappear. Just for the records my son works at JB HIFI here in Melbourne and so I was able to pick up the HD Homerun for $200.00

So I am awaiting the answers from Mythified before going any further as our household is reliant on watching TV so I want to make sue we have everything set up correctly.

Hi Darren,
Thanks was up all night on the whirlpool forums lots of valuable info, have tried pinging all of TPG's sip registration servers no luck. Will keep reading and researching as TPG are not going to help unless I buy there equipment. I am sure it must be something to do with the host name as it comes up firstly as "not registered" then comes back as "request sent" which I have not seen before so I am not sure why, I left it for over 24hrs to see if the status would change but no luck the same thing is still there in the web admin screen "Request Sent"

Thanks Mythified I will give that I try.............would you mind clarifying a couple more things for me as I will have to add a 3rd MD soon

1. So if I am watching one channel on a MD in the family room then in theory I should be able to watch a different channel on MD in the Bedroom
2. I assuming then both should be able to be recorded at the same time
3. If so what happens if the kids then start up a 3rd MD in the bedroom and want to watch TV do they just get a msg that TV is "not available" until the tuners become available or I assume they could stop the recordings and start watching live TV.
4. Most important question so I can better understand the architecture of the system can more than 2 x MD directors use the one HD Homerun at the same time or am I going to have to buy more, as I would like to be able to at least record one program whilst watching another on the Family room MD whilst the kids are watching live TV in there room
5. Lastly if I am at work and the family are currently watching two different channels on different MD's and I want to use Mythweb to record my favorite show at the same time can I select that program and start recording it, or do I have to set some priority within mythtv or is someone at home watching there channel suddenly going to see my channel whilst it is recording.

Sorry for the number of questions though once I better understand the limitations I will be able to use the system to it's full advantage. just got to get better digital reception as I live on the side of a mountain surrounded by pine trees and the reception is a bit dodgy at times.

Cheers and thanks again for your advice

Hoping some has some thoughts, I was using Pennytel temporarily for my VOIP until I could sort out a deal with TPG here in Oz and I must say the plan is not to bad 500mins free VOIP per month but they get you, as the min call is 10min. After you have used up your 500mins then you get charged 10c a call so overall it's not a bad deal. The only downside is that unless you buy there Dynalink ADSL Modem with VOIP then they offer very limited help, though they have sent me the following settings and I have put in the appropriate settings in the phone line config in the web admin page using as the host and the screen says Request Sent but it never the way I have a Dynalink 502T which worked fine with Pennytel VOIP and I have ordered a Linksys ATA adapter to connect up our analogue phones ....does anybody have any ideas

Here are the VOIP settings you requested:
    Interface Name: pppoe_8_35_1
    SIP Transport Protocol: UDP   Port: 5060
    VoIP Service Provider: Others
    SIP Registrar Address, SIP Outbound Proxy and SIP Proxy Server Address:
    Ports: all on 5060
    Phone Number and Username: xxxxxxxx
    Password: your TPG password

Installation issues / HD Homerun Help

I have mythtv 0.22 on 810 b2 running with a HD Homerun on the network here in Oz and I am feeding the same signal into both tuners how can I utilise both tuners i.e. one MD uses one tuner and another MD uses the other one....little bit confused have done a channel scan in mythtv setup and both tuners find the same channels......I was thinking I will have to rename the double up's something like ABC HDTV and ABC HDTV-1 so I can distinguish between the tuners. As usual any help is much appreciated
