HI All,

I've got my Core/Hybrid running with 1MD. Now i wanna start playing with Ip Cameras. Im Based in South Africa and I can get Ip cameras
cheaper from a local distributor (Im employed by an IT company) than sourcing them from ebay. Now I dont wanna waste my time and money by purchasing the incorrect Ip camera that is not compatable with LinuxMCE. On the Wiki there is not a wide variety of supported ip cameras.

1. Can any ip camera be used as an "Generic Camera"?
2. From the Wiki i read that "Zoom" is not supported?
3. Pan and tilt functions -- are these only applicable when you manually pan and tilt the camera from an orbiter or can it be setup to auto pan and tilt
when one of the sensors are triggered?
4. If the camera has built-in mic can it be utilized as a sound sensor?

I can get Edimax and Vivotek ip cameras, but as per this topic it seems that I wont get the Vivotek camera working?
Any suggestions?

Thanx in Advance

It said to do that I you need MythTV for PVR or was it VDR ???.

Hi All,

I'm trying to get a Zotac mag hd-nd01 up and running as a MD.
Sat the whole day with it yesterday from 10am to 11pm. From what I've read on the forum and wiki today it might be the NIC thats not loaded properly. But it went through the initial boot and setup, rebooted and loads. Shows the "KUBUNTU" with blue progress bar, then when the AVWizard is suppose to start, just a black screen. Conected via VGA and HDMI. Rebooted the MD again same thing. Black screen.
Deleted the MD from Admin Website and now it stops at

Code: [Select]
init: .: line 1: can't open /tmp/net-eth0.conf
Kernel panic - no syncing: ...

That indicates it doesnt load the NIC's driver?

Thanx in Advance

H All,
Has anyone tested or using an EeeBox PC EB1501U? Im from South Africa and these are the only "thin clients" i can find.
HP Units I can get from most of my suppliers but they dont have HDMI or SPDIF capabilities.
They also have intergrated ATI graphics cards.

I prefer vesa mountable units, because they are out of sight.
Pls point me in the right direction of obtaining compatible units.

Thanx in advance.
Great job guys, awesome system LinuMCE.

Users / Devon AVC-A1HD amp as MD?

Hi All,

I have LinuxMCE running in my home but only as MediaCenter at the moment, but now I wanna take it a step further.
A friend of mine wants to go the whole nine yards over the next few months, so I'll be asking for alot of help here. For myself personally its a big learning curve and I'm very excited about it. This is the kinda stuff I love!!!! I have a passion for Linux,

Back to the topic.......
My friend has a Devon AVC-A1HD amp, it has ethernet capabilities. Hooked it up to a LinuxMCE test box. The amp has a file browser that actually sees files on the LinuxMCE BOX. But my question is can the amp be used as an MD?

Thanx in Advance
