Hi,

Hardware:
asus k8v se deluxe with onboard SoundMax ADI ad1980, i use the spdif-coax bracket that i got with the mobo.
Installed on this mobo a extra soundblaster live!

The Soundblaster live! i wanna use in the future as a squeezeslave.
The onboard spdif-coax (through bracket) i hooked up to my reciever (Onkyo TX-SR600E)
I used that connection on my reciever with my dvd-player so i know its good.

Problem:
in webadmin under MD it says sound card: soundblaster live! and when i change it its set-back to this!
and the strange thing is under advanced, section sound card it says "no sound cards found"

Question:
How do i get my md to default to spdif-coax-onboard-soundcard?

thanks for any help in advanced,
br,
Raymond

Installation issues / md kernel panic
« on: February 02, 2011, 01:13:40 pm »
trying to get my md working (asus K8V se deluxe, 1 gig, amd 3200+, connected to 32" crt via component)

what i did:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
added my resolution (576i) according to: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Custom_Display_Resolutions
changed /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh to:http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/changeset/23588 and http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/changeset/23635
executed /usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh

and then let the md pxe-boot without interfering and in the end i get:

[ 94.348339] kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!

also it still seems to install nvidia 173 driver, don't know how or why.

don't know how to proceed,
could anybody help me out on this one?

Installation issues / [SOLVED!] Mythtv changing input connections
« on: January 31, 2011, 02:45:33 pm »
Hi all,

whenever i give my core a reboot i must adjust menu #4 (Input connections) of the MythTv setup,
somehow after the reboot LMCE changes the videoX number of my WinTV-PVR-150 card and the videoX number of my USB webcam wich i configured via motionwrapper.
is there a way to prevent this behaviour?

besides, after updating, i can't seem to switch channels anymore, what could be the cause of this?

Developers / Starting a new Skin
« on: January 31, 2011, 02:35:48 pm »
Hi All,

I want to start making/editing skins, for starters (and for learning) i want to keep it simple and just make new graphics files for a existing skin like discribed in this wiki: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Create_my_own_skins_or_GUI_for_LinuxMCE
But i don't want to mess up any existing skins so i want to copy a skin and start from there.
For example:
take /usr/pluto/orbiter/skins/Basic directory and copy and rename it to /usr/pluto/orbiter/skins/BasicNew wich i can alter.

could someone please explain in detail how to make such a copy of a existing skin (i don't want to mess-up the system)
and how to get acces (read/write) to this directory from a laptop inside the internal lan.

thanks,
br,

thanks upfront,

Users / Snapshot
« on: December 05, 2010, 02:08:51 pm »
Hi all,

maybe a bit of a stupid question but here it comes anyway :) :

in the wiki (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/LinuxMCE-0810_beta) i saw that there is a new Update,
but when i look here at http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/ i saw that the snapshot is only 2.2G big.
question:
when i do sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade will i be getting all of the updates from Update 2010-12-05 23479?
and will everything be installed the way it is supposed to be or will there be issues?

Developers / Device templates
« on: November 22, 2010, 03:24:10 pm »
Hi all,

I am in the middle of making a GSD-device for my Ocelot and a few device templates for my AV-gear (tv, receiver, cable box)
and have a few questions.

for my ocelot i use a usb to serial adapter must i still use the serial hack (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Serial_Hack)
or is setting the comport to: /dev/ttyUSB0 sufficient?

in the plug & play section of the gsd-device how do i get the MAC-adress, where can i find it?

my approach for the GSD-ocelot-device:
i learn every ir-code i need in the ocelot, giving a device 50 memory locations.

i only use #384 Process Receive Command for Child field, in here i wrote a Ruby program that generates a serial-command that the Ocelot understands.
to generate this command i use:
- device_.childdevices_[cmd.devidto_].devdata_[12] to get the port-number, which i assign to the port-number of my Ocelot.
- cmd.id_ to get the command (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Command_Table) fired within LinuxMCE to calculate the stored ir-position (wich one from the 50 of 1 device) in the Ocelot.
- cmd.devidto_ to get the device to determine if i must be in location 52, 102, 152 etc (every 50 is a deferent device).

my assumption was that when i add AV-devices it automatically generates a 'remote' in UI1 on a orbiter, so if i would press Move Up on a orbiter (which is cmd.id 200) my ruby-prog would pickup this signal and send the appropriate command to the Ocelot.

But there are no 'remotes' generated.

am i seeing things wrong? or did i forget to configure something?
in the AV-device section what comport must i use?

Raymond

Installation issues / connecting a CRT-TV via Component-video
« on: November 20, 2010, 01:39:22 pm »
hi all,

Somewhere in the forums i did read that Hari successfully uses a crt-tv connected via component-video.
Myself, i have a beautiful Loewe Mimo 32" 16:9 (PAL 576i) crt-tv with component in.
My MD has a GT6600 nvidia-card.
I just don't seem to get the configuration exactly right.

The part i did figure out is that i need to make a custom screen-resolution (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Custom_Display_Resolutions) but with what values?
Or is there a other (better) way to do this? only via webadmin maybe, but how?
i did manage to get a picture but the tv doesn't detect it as a 16:9 resolution.

Anybody got a idea? Hari :)?

thanks a lot,
best regards,
Raymond

Installation issues / Logitech Quickcam Express
« on: October 14, 2010, 01:19:12 pm »
hi all,

i have a old Logitech QuickCam Express, lsusb tells me:
Code: [Select]

following these wiki's:
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Logitech_QuickCam_Sphere
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/USB_Surveillance_Camera
i have been trying to get my usb cam working;
at best i get a picture where i can, very, very vaguely see a image but with a lot of green/purple distortion (big blocks).

if i go to mythtv setup, in the 'capture card setup' section i see:
Code: [Select]
Video Device: /dev/video0
Probed info: Camera [STV06xx]

in the webadmin -> motion wrapper -> Device data -> Motion Parameters,
i set these values:
Code: [Select]
#image settings

rotate 0
width 352
height 258
framerate 15
auto_brightness on

timelapse_filename %Y/%m/%d/timelapse/%m-%d-%Y-timelapse

been playing around in motion wrapper and edited resolution, framerates and the suggestions according to the wiki's,
but nothing seems to get me a good picture.

anybody any idea or suggestion?

Users / Copy/paste
« on: October 13, 2010, 01:06:12 pm »
Hi all,
this is a big rookie question, but i can't figure it out (i am a newbie to Linux, but learning as i come along :) )
i got a usb-hdd with some of my media on it.
now i want to copy that media onto my internal 2TB hdd.

if i put the usb plug in, the drive gets recognized by kubuntu but NOT by LinuxMCE is this normal?
(or should i wait longer, waited 5 min)

second, if i go to KDE desktop i can't manually copy and paste using dolphin,
i can select and copy (rightclick menu) but if i want to paste the files to my 2TB hdd, and rightclick, the option to paste can't be used!

anybody any suggestions?

Installation issues / Mythtv: sound stays on
« on: October 01, 2010, 03:23:51 pm »
Hi all,

i got my mythtv finally up and running (there where some bumps installing the tv grabber :) )
but i noticed something weard:
if i stop tv, the sound stays on, i have to reboot to kill it.

i got a analog asus tuner card (TV FM 7134);
i had to run a separate cable from this card to the mainboard audio-in to get audio working.
i use the standard template in mythtv-setup for the tunercard.

anybody any ideas as how to solve this?

Developers / mkv selecting subtitles and audio tracks
« on: September 21, 2010, 12:03:01 pm »
when playing dvd's (ripped with LMCE) you can select audio and subtitles using the orbiters UI1 "DVD-options" button.
this button doesn't appear when playing mkv-files (same dvd, fully ripped to mkv using makemkv).

so currently there is no way to select audio tracks and subtitles when playing mkv-files.

is there a way to get the "DVD-options" button when playing mkv-files?
should/can i open a new ticket for this?

br,
Raymond


P.S.
the great thing about makemkv is that u can rip a tv-show-dvd to the separate episodes in 1 go.
for example if there are 4 episodes on the dvd,
it will rip them with no compression and all the subtitles and audio tracks, leaving you 4 episode-files.
