Users / Tagging TV Shows
« on: September 19, 2010, 06:48:20 pm »
Hi All,

Tagging my DVD collection is not a problem and is great however,

i ripped my 'Series Friends DVD' with LMCE, so i got the .dvd,
now i want to tagg them with episode and title attribute,
so far i ripped 3 dvd's of season 1.
every dvd gets the same title attribute: 'friends season 1'
every dvd gets the episode attribute: 'episode 1-4' or 'episode 5-8' accordingly.
i have to switch the 'type'-field in the webadmin to 'Linuxmce Video File' to be able to select the episode tagg. is this the way to use?

it was my understanding that in the orbiter (UI1) you would see 1 entry 'friends season 1' and if you would select this entry you would see all the different episodes.
this unfortunately does not happen,
i get every dvd listed separately as 'friends season 1 - episode 1-4' and 'friends season 1 - episode 5-8' etc.

what am i doing wrong or is this supposed to work this way?

any suggestion or help in tagging my tv-shows is welcome,

br,
Raymond

Users / Best way to handle TV-Shows
« on: September 06, 2010, 12:55:15 pm »
Hi,
after reading a lot in the wiki's and forums,
ripping dvd's and tagging them is awesome in LMCE and very clear to use,
but for tv-shows i am a bit puzzled to say the least.

what is at the moment the best way to rip my tv-shows in LMCE?

1- must i do the same as movies, just rip the whole disk or just rip the separated episodes?
2- if i must rip to episodes, what program is best for this (i want NO compression, just a 1 on 1 copy, hdd-size doesn't matter)?
3- how do u properly tag tv-shows?
3- i would like to be able select a show (friends for example), then select the season and then select the episode by name, can this be done or must handling and searching tv-shows be done differently?
4- what is the best place to rip them to? the video folder?

i just wanna get things clear before i start ripping a whole bunch of dvd's.
also i hope to help others clarifying things, by me asking :)
any help is much appreciated,

br,
Raymond

Users / Versions Snapshot 8.10
« on: August 23, 2010, 02:00:53 pm »
Hi Developers,

if u look at the snapshots at http://linuxmce.iptp.org/snapshots/ its a bit confusing:

LinuxMCE-8.10-23194-i386.iso 23-Jul-2010 20:17  3.8G 
LinuxMCE-8.10-23200-i386.iso 23-Aug-2010 08:11    2        <-- 23 august and size 2?
LinuxMCE-8.10-23227-i386.iso 02-Aug-2010 12:16  3.8G 
LinuxMCE-8.10-23233-i386.iso 10-Aug-2010 12:16  3.8G 
LinuxMCE-8.10-23234-i386.iso 19-Aug-2010 12:11    2        <-- size 2?
LinuxMCE-8.10-23236-i386.iso 19-Aug-2010 12:11    2        <-- size 2?
LinuxMCE-8.10-23248-i386.iso 18-Aug-2010 16:17  3.8G 
LinuxMCE-8.10-23251-i386.iso 19-Aug-2010 08:16  3.8G 
LinuxMCE-8.10-23257-i386.iso 22-Aug-2010 20:15  3.8G 

so to get things clear, wich is the latest and why do they differ in size?

Installation issues / No Network, new mobo
« on: August 19, 2010, 11:48:17 am »
hi,

got myself a brand new mobo, gigabyte  GA-770TA-UD3 (onboard nic Realtek 8111D), i installed a second nic (wich worked fine with a prior setup of LinuxMCE)
now i can't get any of the 2 to work,
also made a new network from settingsmenu, no luck

i haven't installed LMCE yet, just installed the kubuntu desktop,
if i install LMCE (without the kubuntu update) will the correct driver be installed automatic?

also installed kubuntu 10.04 and then the onboard nic seemed to work ok

i read at http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/User:Chrysemys that a kernel-update should be performed, must i do so?
are there any risks?

anybody a idea?

thanks,
br

Installation issues / UPDATE: NVidia GT220, no AVWizard
« on: July 10, 2010, 01:07:47 am »
Hi all,

i am building a new core/hybrid with a MSI MS7191 mainboard (with onboard Ati), 1 gig an a NVidia GT220.
i am using the 8.10 snapshot from 4 july.
i can't turn off onboard video, i can only set it to 'auto'.

i did succesful install ubuntu 9.10 with no problem at all.

the install went smooth altho i could not do the update after the install of kubuntu.
then after the reboot, i can't seem to get the AVWizard.
i saw the screen where it says orbiter generator done (ctrl+alt+1)

i tried the lspci 'trick' but that doesn't help, my busID is 01:00.0 (axactly this way)
i typed "PCI:01:0:0" is that ok?

the GT220 needs driver 195 and above is the default driver for LinuxMCE older than that?

does anybody have a pointer in the right direction or a solution?

kind regards,
Raymond

Users / Managing and adding Media
« on: June 27, 2010, 06:49:18 pm »
After working a lot with xbmc, i am wondering how to manage/add my media in lmce, i can't seem to find the answers in the wiki's.
I have 1.5 TB of mkv-movie files and music, all managed with an external media manager (http://www.embermm.com/)

does lmce have a way to manualy manage my media?

Wat is the proper and right way to add all of my movies and music?
I have all of my media stored on a internal 2TB disk.

I wanna be able to determan the fileformat, i do not want to compress the movies or music, i want the best  quality (HD space is no problem)

Also i want to be able to choose my own movie thumbs, scenario's, cast, artists, etc.

Any help is much apriciated,

Raymond
