DragonK this looks amazing, superb work!
if i may make 1 suggestion, make the background a very dark color (almost black),
for instance very, very dark purple. this will give your great design a very classy and high-end look.
looking forward to using your skin,

Hi Mandingo,
thanks for your superb list,
but there are some broken links in it, its just a type i guess :):
hauppage is written with 2 'p' some links have only 1 'p' in it  ;).

another thing i want to mention about the section 'ATSC/NTSC Cards (only in US/Canada )',
the hauppage-cards are also available in the EU, they are labeled as 'analog tv-cards' and therefore (i think) should work in the EU also.
don't know if the other cards in this section are also available in the EU.

the 'only' thing i did so far is 'getting the tuner to work',
but the overall picture-quality isn't what i like it to be,
is there any way to get a better picture from my analog cable connection,

my thoughts:
because there is a function that you can pause live tv, so it does record, recording of a show is always on in the background (at least for a few seconds, showed up in the mythtv webadmin) this function makes me believe that you aren't watching 'live-tv' but the recording,
is this true?
and if so can u set the recording to a better quality?

I suggest using a supported tuner card, or adding code to mute the tuner card channel.

Please, guys. It's important, when you first set up a system, to use supported hardware!


sorry, but i am fairly new to all of this, the card uses the standard v4L driver and therefore i assumed it was supported.
it was recognized by the system immediately, no problem.
so this still isn't supported hardware?

Yes, even if you got it to mute when you paused, the sync would be off. In fact, I would think the sync is off now... because the image buffers a little bit and you are just getting a raw audio feed.

thats right sync is a bit off, is there anyway to solve this?

thanks all,

the crazy thing is that when i hit play/pause and pause a live stream, sound doesn't get paused.

Installation issues / Mythtv: sound stays on

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?

thanks for all your help and clarification.
i will dig into it when the time comes (hopefully in the near future)
for now i first focus on getting my total setup up and running  :)
will keep you all posted.

no harm done.

ok i am glad  :)

"I do not know how to code" <-- That's something one can learn

ok point taken  ;) i am a compleet noob at this, what is the best way to start?
do you have any pointers for me?

is there a place in the forums where i can post some of my ideas?
just for reference, discussion and maybe ideas to others?

If you want this to happen, you should do the following:
* open a trac ticket type feature_request
* look into the code and start coding
* apply your code to the ticket
* grab someone in #linuxmce-devel to give it a test drive
* profit

hi Posde,
i am fairly new to all of this (LinuxMCE, opensource community, the trac-system, using this forum intensly, linux) but very much willing to learn.

sadly i do not know how to code, but i want to help in anyway i can.
sorry if did or asked anything wrong, my intentions are good and i certainly do not want to offend somebody in any way.

me asking this feature here is my way of helping, as the handling/managing of tv-shows with this button would be improved,
one could easily use mkv to extract the episodes to single files and select the correct audio and subtitles in the orbiter.

if i have these kind of ideas would it be ok if i posted them in the feature request section?
so someone with code-skill, time and will to do it, can do it? does it work that way?


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?


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.

Also a Ocelot from Applied Digital with a SECU16IR module would work.

Unfortunaly these are not plug and play, but they should be able to get working with GSD.

Ok Thom,
thanks for your reply,
looking forward to the implementation of that new code  ;)

tag each episode with a title of Family Guy, or American Dad.

Use the Episode attribute to tag each episode with a # and a name. The media plugin will use and show this, and eventually, will collapse these to be expanded when clicked on.


Hi Thom,
i did this with my series of Friends (ripped the complete disk at once to .dvd) but the "collapse" part did not happen in any Orbiter.
am i doing something wrong or will this feature be made available in the future?

if it will be available in the future, what is, for now, the best way to store, rip and browse tv-shows?

thanks for all your hard work on this super system,
