here you go Phenigma:

my CORE (that will only run driver up to version 304.135)
Code: [Select]
00:18:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation G71 [GeForce 7950 GT] [10de:0295] (rev a1)
my MD (that will only run driver up to version 340.102):
Code: [Select]
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: NVIDIA Corporation GF116 [GeForce GTX 550 Ti] [10de:1244] (rev a1)

I have quite a similiar experience....fresh install of 14.04. i tried the last image as well as net install. Its booting...displays 0 in the top left, goes blank, reboots. All of this continuously. The graphicscard in this case is a cheap gt710.
Along with modifying nvidia-install.sh, delete  /etc/X11/xorg.conf file AND in /etc/pluto.conf, change Firstboot = false to Firstboot = true...and then reboot

Strange indeed.  My core has older nvidia card that only works with 304 driver.  My MD in living room has a card that will only go as high as 340 driver.  Editing nvidia-install.sh has always worked for my situation..  trying other card may resolve your issue

Did you edit nvidis-install.sh?  Or temporarily rename it?  It's set to run automatically and can reinstall over the other nvidia driver.  You can also switch to another terminal and observe log messages...that is how I determined that my card was not supported by the drivers Tgat nvidia-instsll.sh was installing.

On 16.04, Web administration comes up as blank page...someone else noted somewhere that the mysql version in 16.04 has different requirement for root logo (or something like that)

One of the programmers would know that answer.  I know it gets called to run in certain conditions.

I made a mistake... it is actually nvidia 304.135 (not 302)

When my MD was doing this, I was watching the dmesg log (on my core) at the file  /usr/pluto/diskless/35/var/log and saw that there were messages stating that no NVIDIA card was found supported by the driver (340 and 352)
in nvidia-install.sh there is this
Code: [Select]
case " $Driver_Current_Supported " in *" $PCI_Id "*)
                case $(lsb_release -cs) in
                        precise)
                                echo "nvidia-340"       ;;
                        trusty)
                                echo "nvidia-352"       ;;
                        xenial)
                                echo "nvidia-361"       ;;
                esac
                return 1
and there is
Code: [Select]
        case $(lsb_release -cs) in
                precise)
                        echo "nvidia-340"
                        return 1
                        ;;
                trusty)
                        echo "nvidia-352"
                        return 1
                        ;;
                xenial)
                        echo "nvidia-361"
                        return 1
                        ;;
        esac
 

I changed them all to "nvidia-304" in the nvidia-install.sh that was in  /usr/pluto/diskless/35/usr/pluto/bin/ directory (for my media director device 35...yours may be different if MD).   You should also be able to edit this file on the core /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh


If I remember, it wasnt until i modified /etc/pluto.conf and changed either 'firstboot' or 'avwizarddone' values (or both) to get it to re-install the correct nvidia-304 driver.

i did some minutes ago.

removed the nvidia drives (NVIDIA NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.102.run --uninstall), removed all nvidia drives (304, 375, etc), downloaded from pastebin, used and the result was the same, with 340. Changed to 304, and the result was the same.

From ssh i could see AVWizard installing 340. did not work. Could see installing 304. Did not work either.

Any driver your recomend?

This hardware configuration worked with 10.04 (well, i build it and used the HD with lmce 10.04).

TIA
Last I looked, in nvidia-install.sh, the selection of which nvidia driver version is based on the version of Ubuntu.  Even though I'm running 14.04, my graphics card only works with the 302 driver.  I edited nvidia-install.sh to only be able to install the 302 driver. 

You may have similar situation

Phenigma, in reply #6 you made mention of a 'manual setup' to do exotic NIC setup.  A while back I had queried about being able to configure a 'bridge' in the web administration network page. 

I know it isn't all that hard to set up the bridging, but getting the firewall configured for the bridged NICs is difficult for novices like me. 

If any reconfigure of the network setup pages is going to be done,  could the bridging aspect be re-visited?

Thanks,
Dennis

I've modified the nvidia-install.sh in /usr/pluto/bin folder.  I've got a card that only works with the nvidia-304 driver.  In the file, any reference to nvidia-xxx was changed to nvidia-304.  This procedure got me up and running

I created a ticket '2703' a while back concerning the mythtv setup scripts.  It is still open.

The ticket documents my findings and what I have dome to get mythtv working on the MDs

Have you tried the vlc-player instead of xine on 1404?  It's still beta but working.

edit: fyi: mp4 is a container, not a codec.  Some players play files that are damaged.  The fact that dragon player plays the files does not automatically infer that the files are not improper or damaged.

Thanks for mentioning VLC.  I've not been happy with xine because zooming stopped working some time ago. 

VLC is working great so far.
