I spoke to the guys on the chat. I ended up just reinstalling from scratch, and formatted my 750GB drive. I also noticed that I didn't have all the repos in my sources.list, so I fixed that this time around. everything is gravy now. NOW, I just need to start ripping all of my movies again... ::bleh::

Users / cannot get mame games working
« on: December 02, 2010, 04:11:18 am »
Hey there,

I followed the steps on to a T. I added my roms into the mame folder through the samba share. my core/hybrid detected the games and attached the images accordingly.

But when I select a game and then click "play" the screen freezes for a second, and then I am booted back to the main orbiter screen and nothing happens.

Has this happened to anyone else?

is there any way to configure the special function keys on the mini? like the PC power button (would be nice to make this a quick sleep button)

any ideas on this?

Does anyone think that I should just start from scratch?
Anyone have a recommended way of setting up my hybrid box based on my components below?

I don't mind redoing the whole thing (since it is a project) and I will only learn more as  I go, but it would be great to get some guidance as to the "best"/most recommended way of setting up my core/hybrid box.

I have...

Abit AB9 Pro motherboard (has 9 SATA ports capable of RAID 0,1,5,10. WOuld like to use 5 in the future. also has 7.1 audio optical out and dual gigabit NICs)
Intel Quad-core 2.44Ghz processor
Nvidia 8800 GTS 512MB video from EVGA
(1) WD 160GB HDD
(1) Samsung 750GB HDD (will eventually remove this for an internal RAID 5 array if possible)
Cooler master Mystique case

Other components:
USB-UIRT  (on the way)
Logitech DiNovo bluetooth keyboard
40" sony bravia 5100
(no receiver yet)

Possible media director?:
I have a HP2133 mininote that I was thinking of doing PXE boot for a bedroom MD. any thoughts here?

I am very patient and just want to get the best install setup possible so I can get to tweaking and (hopefully) start contributing in the automation side of the community!

When I setup the initial install I setup LMCE to install to a 160GB WD harddrive (/ installed here)
then on my Samsung 750GB hard drive, I had that setup to have /home installed to it.

After LMCE installed, it detected the 750GB hard drive fine. I said to "use LMCEs file structure". When I did that, I realized I couldn't access the /public/data/videos directory to copy my videos to, so I copied them to /home/MY_USERNAME/data/videos instead. I then went into the web-admin and added that folder to the database. and all my files were detected, and everything played, but now, it looks as if the database is corrupt, KDE won't start and everything is not running like it was before.

Is there something that I can check?

just noticed that all my music won't play though. it is stored in /home/ryan/music

I went into the web-admin, and then to the media files and sync and clicked on the home link on the left, and for some reason, 'ryan' is missing entirely.

Really strange.

Anyone know how to add this directory back?

I tried to start the kde desktop from the advanced screen and now I have a 'cannot start kstartupconfig. please check your installation.' and KDE wont start either. Once that message appears, I am just stuck at a grey screen until I restart the hybrid PC. It was all working fine before I left on friday...

Did my installation take a dump?? I don't want to reinstall and re-rip all of this AGAIN, if I don't have to. (dont have a NAS yet...)

Any recommendations?

I don't know if this helps at all, but I tried logging into the web-admin, and deleting this path


which is where all of the non-existent information was being displayed.

I then resyncronized the videos directory, and all seems to be good again.

Does anyone know why this somehow resyncronized itself?

Hey there,

I have an issue and I don't even know where to start. I added my movies that I had previously ripped to movie folders (like movie/ video_ts/audio_ts etc) into the proper folder and added the directory through the media sync wizard like i read in this topic, and all was good.

I was out for the thanksgiving holiday, and when I returned yesterday and turned on the TV and went to my videos section through the MD, every video has been duplicated about 15 times!!

What's even stranger is that it seems like the paths that it created are to non playable files for those replicated links in the videos section.

Has anyone else had this issue?
Anyone have any ideas on how to fix this?

theteju, i followed your steps and it worked perfectly.

I looked at the wiki, and what my setup looked like and what it said on the wiki were different, so i didn't bother. Alas, thetejus method worked perfectly.

Users / Re: What devices are you running Web orbiter 2.0 on?
« on: November 24, 2010, 03:18:13 am »
I'm using the web orbiter with the android touch orbiter app and it works great on my HTC Hero.

(tested it on 2.1 firmware, and I just updated to 2.3) Works great! I am going to update the wiki soon.

I do need to adjust the font size though. the resolution looks very... meh, compared to my GF's HTC EVO, which looks AWESOME running on that.

Is there a way to boost the quality or adjust the font size? The resolution is perfect (fits the screen like a glove), but the fonts are not clear and very small.

Users / Setup Custom Keys on Logitech DiNovo Mini
« on: November 24, 2010, 03:07:06 am »
As the title states, I have a logitech DiNovo Mini, p/n 820-002109, m/n Y-RGB93. Bluetooth detection and operations are flawless, but I since it doesn't have the F keys, I can't use F7 to access the menu button, when playing a movie, etc.

Is there somewhere in the web-admin I can either remap the F7 key to something else, or to map a key on the mini?

I have a fn key on the keyboard, and three programmable keys (normally the sound keys), as well at the standard media center button, (which was the start button when using it in windows media center)

Any ideas?

Users / Help adding cover art to ripped DVD folders
« on: November 24, 2010, 02:59:35 am »
Hi there,

I read through the threads regarding copying my DVDs that I already had ripped to folders. I added them to my user folder and syncronized them from the web admin and all is great. I have cover art for all of these movies, from when I was originally using Windows MCE. The structure is this.
  • movie folder
    • audio_ts folder
    • video_ts folder
    • image named folder.jpg

This is how windows understood where the picture related to the movie was. Is there a way I can syncronize these images to correlate with my movie?

Any help is greatly appreciated. I'm new to the community, but learning quick!

Thanks for a great product! I hope to contribute to the community more once I am fully operational :-)
