It sounds like you guys have a pretty good picture about whats wrong. It seems like the ticket misses some of the info above?

OK, thanks for your answer. I will do that.

Users / Adding HDD with MCE file structure
« on: November 02, 2010, 10:29:14 pm »
Hi all,

I have a USB HDD that is already formatted with the mce file structure. It also has some media on it. I would like to plug it into the core and make the system understand that it is an mce file structure and use it as such. Shall I select the option "Use MCE file structure" when mce detects the drive? I don't want to loose the data on the drive...


Users / DVD rip stopped working
« on: October 29, 2010, 09:57:47 pm »

I decided to take the effort and rip my dvd collection for convenience, using the built in ripping functionality in MCE. After successfully ripping four DVDs I decided to also rip an audio CD. I should probably not have done that... After this the DVD ripping does not work. Linux MCE does not recognize one single DVD, when I select rip it sets title "Unknown". Subsequent ripping fails. When I look in the web admin I find an error message "error writing to /home/public/data/video/bla bla". Audio CD ripping still works. I rip to the same drive so its not the HDD that is messing with me. The DVDs are recognized correctly in KDE. I can open them and browse the file system. It seems to be a MCE problem. Rebooting the core and the MD does not improve the situation. I also tried deleting the audio files I ripped and resynchronize the media files. No improvement. It does not complain about libdvdccs.

Does anyone recognize this problem? Is DVD recognition and ripping known to be error prone?

I have been using the system for about a month now and I must say I'm impressed by what you have accomplished! So I hope to get passed those initial hurdles... :-)


I can not playback m2ts files from my panasonic AVCHD camcorder under MCE 810. The problem seems similar to yours nite_man,  when I read this thread. Did you have any progress? (I did not try the backported xine since I do not want to break VDR) or shall I forget about this?

I installed the latest snapshot of 810. That solved the problem.

Thanks for your answer! I tried all of your above suggestions, unfortunately it didn't solve the problem. I still get the same error message. I expected that the changes you suggested in the web interface somehow should be reflected in my xorg.config. But that file did not change. Is that normal?

I also saw in the 810 installation tutorial that you should take all updates to kubuntu before mce installation. So I reinstalled everything from scratch to do as explained in the tutorial, but nothing changed.

When I said the UI1 is working, that is actually not 100% true. The video with the speaking woman that should be playing during the setup does not work. I get a black square instead. So I guess something is very wrong with my graphics driver.

When I go to the KDE desktop on my MD it says that I am not using proprietary drivers for my Nvidia card. It suggests to use proprietary Nvidia driver version 180. I am not sure if I should do that. When the MD starts up it always shows a message that nvidia driver 195.something is used.

More suggestions are very welcome!

Thank you guys for your help. The script took indeed a very long time to execute. It is probably a good idea to have this as a separate step for those who need it.

It may be a good idea to document this in the user guide.


Installation issues / Orbiter failed to setup transparency
« on: September 30, 2010, 11:24:28 pm »

I saw this topic was discussed in this thread

However I didn't see any helpful info here, and it was a few years ago, so I decided to post the topic again. This problem arises when I try the UI2 with alpha blending.

When I examine the xorg.config file I can see that the driver is set to vesa. From what I understand, this means that the installer did not manage to correctly identify the graphics card. This would probably cause my problem. Any suggestions how I should go from here? Can I manually hack my xorg.config to make this work?

Some info about my system:

dedicated core with AMD phenom dual core and ATI graphics. I don't have any monitor or TV connected to the core.

diskless MD with zotac geforce 9300 motherboard. Intel core2 quad. 4 GB of corsair. (this is the one experiencing the problem)

Running 810. Made a fresh install on core from DVD. Didn't do any changes in kubuntu desktop before running mce install.

Diskless MD PXE boots without problem. AV wizard works fine. UI1 works fine. I did sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get dist-upgrade. No improvement.

Any help is appreciated!


Users / PXE boot problem in 8.10 [solved]
« on: August 01, 2010, 09:16:26 pm »
Hi all,

After doing a fresh install of 8.10 on my core server, PXE boot does not work. In 7.10 there was a default file in /tftpboot/pxelinux.cfg/ and also initrd and vmlinuz files under /tftpboot/default/. All of this is missing in my 8.10 installation.

Could anyone point out to me what I am missing out here??
