Thom, is your lol core a standalone, or a hybrid?

I'm re-evaluating. My build

yea, but last time I tried to copy files that way and then tried to resyncronize them via the web admin, the whole install went screwy.

Users / access network share through LMCE KDE desktop
« on: March 21, 2011, 06:05:48 am »
This might sound like a dumb question, but is it possible to access the network share through KDE desktop? I have an NTFS HDD that I am trying to get some files copied into the LMCE managed drive. Trying to copy them directly isn't allowed, and I was able to copy the files easily from another PC on the network, but this particular partition I have is the actual same drive that I have LMCE on, meaning I can't remove it and transfer the files from another PC.

Any ideas? Am i missing something?

wanted to also note that playing my mp3s through LMCE works flawlessy, BTW. standard audio in LMCE (movies, wizard, etc) works fine as well.

Hey everyone!

Just today i wanted to show someone a video, so I pulled up KDE desktop, copied over the video clip and low and behold, I got video fine, but got a message on both mplayer and vlc saying 'cannot initialize audio drivers'. Is there something disabled?

I also tried opening an mp3 that I have stored on the pc, and amarok threw me an error too.

Is this a known issue?

Has anyone dealt with the audio portion of LMCE? it is horribly painful to work with. Only play, or play all or shuffle all?

Since we're sitting on top of KDE, it would be nice if we could use some of the highly useful capabilities of Amarok possibly.

Has anyone tweaked this portion of the system? Any plans to? Being able to have a lot of usability in a major portion of the 'media' only makes sense to me. no?

Anyone else have any thoughts here?

I used that on my WMCE. Box before I switched to LMCE. It worked awesomely then. :-)

Ok.  Thanks for the input.  I have Comcast in my area,  and it looks like they are encrypting. More and more channels.

What's better to use for the tv portion of LMCE?  That is what I really want to get working :-)

I haven't tried those yet.  Are the z wave switches programmable?

to stay on topic, Los93sol, anything I can do to help with the refinement of this? I've been programming for android for a while at my company now and would love to contribute to this segment of the arena.

What kills me still, is that we are still only using the basic webview orbiter. with a webview, essentially, no? I'm down to create a custom interface, so there would be much better performance on the android devices side, but i'm not sure of what I need to know about the orbiter to create/refine a native android client.

los93sol, if you'd liketo pm me I'm eager to dive in and help if there is a portion you are looking to work on and want some assistance on

Users / HD PVR or HDHomeRun? the time has come
« on: January 31, 2011, 06:31:06 pm »
OK, so i'm looking to add the last piece to the puzzle to finally make this automation project 'complete'. I am looking to bring in my live tv finally so I (and my wonderful gf) can take full advantage of LMCE without having to switch inputs contantly.

I'm looking at the HD PVR from Hauppauge and the HDHomeRun from silicon dust. Both capture video, but both also have slightly different ways of working.

What are your thoughts out there? I'd like to get as much input as possible before taking the plunge in either direction.

Many thanks,
