entirely do-able all though i need to examine how deals with discs. i know they have that as part of the api, just need to look into it.

that would be great, thanks a lot for your effort and contribution to this great system!  :)
looking forward to using it.

Sorry for being so confusing. You can in fact do that (though i didnt program the tv tagger to take that into account so some adjustments would need to be made)

I do not want to give orders, please don't get me wrong, i just want the best and easiest way to rip tv-show dvd's.
If you could make those adjustments, that would be great, as far as i see it there would be a bunch of improvements:
- you can still use the buildin ripper wich is great and fast
- you still have acces to all of the dvd extra's

The tagging of tv-shows has to be done either-way, when u rip into episodes you have to tagg them and if you rip into dvd-iso you also have to tagg them, i personelly think ripping the totall dvd and tagging afterwards is easier.

It is possible to assign episode tags to the .iso. If you rip each episode from the disc to its own .iso,

so it isn't possible to assign 4 episode-tags to a full dvd-iso (dvd rip as 1 disk)?
that way u could use the standard dvd-ripper built in LMCE and do the tagging after that.

for rip-software i am, as you puzzled, i used makemkv and was very happy about it because it can rip 1 dvd in 1 go to the seperate episodes.
sadly if u rip to mkv, audio and subtitle can't be chosen in the orbiter from my experience (i tried a movie-dvd)
or do u know how to get the .mkv files to work?

thanks golgoj4 for your reply :)

just got a few new questions reading your responce:
Rip and tag Disc 1 of xx discs. It contains 4 episodes of the series. That .iso now is tagged with the data for those 4 shows, making it confusing to find just the one.
isn't it posible to assign episode tags to the .iso so u can view the episodes names in the orbiter?

could u name a few ripping software, so i can try some out, i want the best possible quality, hdd-space is not a problem.

Managing the series is a work in progress (and 90% complete)
do u mean ticket 778, i read about it in the svn-pages, last comment is about some bugs being there,
i asume they are being worked on? (just a question, please do not be offended by it, just want to point it out and certenly do not want to stress somebody out :) )
again big thanks,

nobody any suggestions?

i was hoping somebody had:
- a quick-guide or,
- a pros and cons towards ripping entire dvd or episodes or,
- an example how he or she did manage tv-series from dvd or,
- a personal story about his/her struggles or,
- a suggestion about ripping software

again, i am not only asking this for myself but also for future reference, for people who want to begin using the system, as guidelines.

hope to hear from you,

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,


great work DragonK,

love ur concepts,
if i would have to choose i would say:
- pick the colorsheme from the buttons "Misc" and "Telecom" from your last design and give the other buttons the same tone (nice earthly tones)
- for the background i would choose a very dark version of the buttons, for example the background for the "Telecom" button would be   very dark brown
- pick the layout from your main screenconcept dd.27 aug 2010


Installation issues / Re: mythtv dutch xmltv gone
« on: September 02, 2010, 10:21:06 am »
thats what i thought too,
with 0.22 i had no problem, with 0.23 i get error messages, probably because i can't get the dutch grabber,
or maybe the dutch grabber didn't get a update to 0.23 or isn't this possible?
is there a way to manually install this?

i can select other grabbers but not the dutch one,
when i select for example the belgium one (or the general european) i get a error.

just to make sure :),
i assume u did this:
The DVD installer per default does not create the initial MD image, as that creation takes a very long time, and most people probably prefer to give 810 a test, without the MDs. If you want to setup MDs, you have to manually run
(You should only have to do this once)


Users / Re: LinuxMCE Splash Screen - a start
« on: August 28, 2010, 10:39:55 pm »

i didn't had a chance to actually try the Splash Screen just yet.
after a long time of testing i finally got my core up and running.
now i use my time to get things going 1 by 1, step by step.
at the moment i am getting all my dvd's and cd's on the core (and figuring out whats the best way for me)
when i have time i will try your splash screen,
by the way does this splash overwrite any files or is there a option to select?

anyway, i really like your work,
