« on: June 22, 2010, 11:16:48 am »
Off topic,

I read a post or wiki about using Tvtuner in core/hybrid and be able to watch tv on the MD using the Core/Hybrid tvtuner.
It said to do that I you need MythTV for PVR or was it VDR ???.

Can someone pls point me to that wiki or post.
I cant seem to find it.

Hi All,

Thanx for your assistance Tim, but this I dont understand.........
Initial problem was black screen........
Then deleted the Md From Admin Page and then got  "line 1: can't open /tmp/net-eth0.conf" which points to unregocnized NIC.
Followed the instruction on how to patch the R8168 driver.
That didnt work cause I couldnt find the "r8168.diff" file. So I called it quits on Saturday night.
And Last night was the first oppertunity I got to have a go at it again.

Swithced on the Core/Hybrid.....once booted switched on the MD (Zotac Mag)
It went through the process of again. ???
MD rebooted and back to a black screen. I left  it there and went to make a cup of coffee. Preparing myself for a late with this.
But as I got back into the study (with my coffee) the MD rebooted again, but this time it stopped at the AV Wizard.....
Went through it and all is working. Maybe it was the Coffee or did I just need patience........

All I need to do now is test the HDMI. I want audio and visual through HDMI.

WIll post  outcome of that once its done.

Hey Tim,

At the moment of blank screen I didnt think of pressing "3". Now I'm stuck on

line 1: can't open /tmp/net-eth0.conf

I'm gonna sit with it tonight and post the out come.

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

Hi PollieXmas,

I was considering maybe using the EB1501U as a core/hybrid.
Yes I managed to get Zotac board. Will have it by Friday.

You from SA?

Hi Valent,

Pluto no longer exists and licenses are no longer available. LinuxMCE is not in the 'Public domain' whatever that may mean. Parts of LinuxMCE are GPL and other parts are PPL (Pluto Public License). It is the PPL parts that restrict you from selling LinuxMCE systems commercially.

CHT supplies both Cascade & Dianemo based hardware systems to our approved resellers/installers and in some regions we have appointed distributors. If you PM me here I will provide you with details of our commercial reseller/installer and distribution agreements etc.

All the best


Hi Andrew,

How does one become an approved reseller/installer and distributor?
Im based in South Africa.

Thanx again for the quick reply and advice. Much appreciated.
Would I be able to use a intel-zotac-ionitx-n330 board  as a Core/Hybrid? My only concern is the PSU......

I know thats the snapshots, but downloading via torrent is more stable for me.
Hence the question, is the torrent download the latest snapshot?

Thanx Guys,

But from what I've been reading a more stable/compatible option would be ZOTAC Ion mini-Itx Motherboards.
Just need to confirm if they are available in South Africa.
The Asus EB1501U Retails for R5600 in SA..... Thats more than have of my salary, so Im looking for cheaper altarnatives.

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.

Hi Guys,

Whats the replacement remote that works on LinuxMCE? Whats recommended?
