I have mine in a closet but it is still a hybrid. I suppose it just allows me to plug a monitor and keyboard in if I really need it.

Don't know if it is still relevant but try that.

Sorry to bring back an old topic but does anyone know how to delete some of the entries/stale IP addresses that are no longer needed so that they can be reused?
As you can see for some reason mine filled with junk when I had to reset a camera a few times.

Thanks Josh

You might be in a situation where that BT router has it's modem built in - are you using DSL for example? If this is the case, I would have thought (although I have no experience of this, so please correct me if I am wrong somebody) that DHCP would need to be disabled and you'd have to set up a static IP or something for eth0 on the core.

DHCP can be enabled on the external network. The modem/router can provide the extenal nic (eth0) with an IP address and LMCE is setup to request an IP address from the external network. (Can be made static if you wish)

The internal network, (eth1) LMCE makes it's own IP addresses and this is the standard which is best left alone. LMCe then acts as the DHCP server and provides IP addresses to everything else.

Hope that doesn't throw more mud at the issue.

Then, switch things on one by one, in order (starting from the wall), waiting 30 seconds between each

That is how I go from here.

1) The BT connects to the internet and to the Cores external nic. BT is setup to provide DHCP
2) Nothing is connected to the internal NIC for now
3) Install LMCe but stop before running the LMCEinstall script on the kubuntu desktop.
4) make sure internet is working. If not let us know as that is what needs to be sorted.

I had a quick look into ripping bluray a while ago and you could use something like a combination of the dumphd and there may have been a program called clownbd as well. The only thing was they weren't all that effective. Things may have improved since then but you'll have to google it.

The only program that I found that worked is Any DVD HD, a paid software that only runs in windows. I have mine running (not part of LMCE) inside a windows VM.

That is indeed sad to here.

Although I didn't have much to do with him he always seemed helpful.


Users / Re: Foscam FI8918W has anybody got it working?
« on: April 30, 2011, 10:41:45 pm »
Had to do a reinstall and tried to make the Foscam device template again.

Using the same things and trying the same things but no video again.........

I assume the easiest would be to wait till the device template I submitted a while ago gets added to the database.

When do device templates that get submitted to sqlcvs get added to the database?

Are there any other solutions?

Thanks Josh

Hi Jon,

Keep banging that head, Mine is getting nice and tough now but it does work. The biggest thing if you haven't used a linux system before is that it is very different from windows and MS stuff.

If you have a known working snapshot, the next thing is run the dvd.iso, get to kubuntu and open up a terminal. (From memory (not infront of my machine) click the start button on the bottom left, Applications and system, konsole.

Paste the output of:
Code: [Select]
Code: [Select]
Code: [Select]
ifconfig -a
As psode said, likely either a hardware incompatability or networking issue as you need to get onto the internet.

Also please list the details of your setup and network and there any many people here that will help.

Hi Jon,

Yes it is one of the drawbacks with open source, but if you wanted something more plain sailing at this stage then you also have to pay a lot for it. People here are pretty helpful and if you stick with it it does eventually get going but you do need a lot of patience. I believe this software is very much in it's infancy.

If you do want to stick with it:
use the latest snapshot and one that is recommended.

Installation on my last snapshot (23843 16 March) was pretty much 3 clicks.

So you got the same one as me except the country designation.

That is what it looks like. Different power plugs as the power brick ships with the motherboard.

I found with my fan attached I couldn't hear it. CPU fan was plugged into the CPU fan connector on the motherboard.

Hi Jon,

What hardware are you using?

Are you using two NICs?

LinuxMCE won't install unless there is an internet connection I believe.

When you get to the Kubuntu, you need to get the external network/internet working.

I'll try and chase up the retailer.

Thanks psode,

Already in action. Just answering techstyles questions as I spent a while trying a few things before hand.


The difference between the IONITX-A-C and the IONITX-A-U is below, managed to find out.

SKU ending designates power plug (B = British Standard, C = China, E = EU generic, U = US

I've put a hdd and optical drive in.

Kubuntu 8.10 lspci shows the adapter but not configured. (Couldn't configure the makefile from the zotac website)
Ubuntu 10.10 as above
Winxp unable to install, keeps getting BSOD when after the initial loading and when it tries to start windows.
Windows 7 (this is the one I spent the most time trying) Nothing, installed drivers of CD, windows diagnoses hardware fault.

thanks Josh

Thanks Guys,

I suspected either some bios setting I'm missing (the only one I've changed is the pxe boot rom enabled.)


faulty hardware.

I can pxe boot from another pc with the same cable.

I'll try and chase up the retailer.

Also not sure of the A-U vs A-C, didn't get anything on google, probably a regional difference.

thanks Josh
