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?

Users / Devon AVC-A1HD amp as MD?
« on: June 08, 2010, 08:06:47 am »
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

Hi, Im still learning MCE, I used 0710 but just a stupid two nics prefered in 0810?

Hi Guys,

I have a few installation problems. Do I have to download the latest snapshot or can I do an update to the latest snapshot?
Reason for asking this is that it takes about a week to download the 3.7GB snapshot.
