On my Nexus4 this also happens, and i use the smokey skin. But when i rotate again, most of the times it comes back.

On My Desire HD i use the default skin (the only one i can choose), and the screen blacks out when i rotate, but come back fairly quickly (within 1 second). Pretty normal i think. Sometimes after rotating the buttons are displayed multiple times, the disappear after a new background has been loaded.

Another few small things that i have noticed on the Nexus with the smokey skin.

- If in portrait, the exit button is almost not visible, it falls of the edge of the screen, and only the "E" is showing.
- While in portait the photo's seem to get streched to fit in the screen
- The power button is not (yet) working
- Maybe it is because i only have 1 user defined, but if i select the user menu, i get only a blank green screen with a close button.
- When i select a different room, for example, change from living room to bedroom, i tap location, i see the screen with all location, then select bedroom, then i get another screen where i can only select my bedroom.
- When selecting media, then video, it takes some time to display the "TV Shows" and "Movies" buttons (about 2 seconds), while the "Filename Sort" button is displayed instantanious.
- qt4 always crashes when i press "Filename Sort" before the other buttons (TV Shows, Movies, etc) are displayed
- Often i see crashes when selecting "TV Shows". The crash happens while loading all shows. The crash happens at about 950 of 1389 shows. Maybe i somewhere have a problem in my tvshows. I dont use this view function, because it is not the most handy view for me. If i have 200 episodes of the same TV Show, i get 200 items with only that shows title. I hope this could be reduced to 1 item. Mostly i use "Filename Sort" and it is
- While in a Media view (TV Shows, Movies, Audio) i cannot press the back button to go back to the main screen.
- While in a Media view, when i press the home button, the main screen comes up, but still with the media menu pressed (the buttons Video, Audio, Radio, etc are still displayed)

I already requested this, but i want to write it again, to keep all things in this post
- I hope to see the smokey skin working on more devices (my HTC Desire HD), if there is anything i can do to help with this, please point me into the right direction.
- A Viewed/Unviewed function for media

Keep up the good work!
Qorbiter is very snappy and reponsive. and imho very good looking with the smokey skin

After reading this thread and the thread about upnp/dlna (,13400.0.html)

I installed squeezeplayer on my phone ( (yes, this can be found for free, search on aptoide)
Created a new room, named after my phone
Connected it to my core using this wiki (

Now can control Audio playback from any orbiter. So also qorbiter on the same phone, the squeezeplayer program runs in the background.

Just wanted to share. This might be a good idea for people that have an extra tablet or phone to use in the bathroom/bedroom/hallway. Or buy a cheap tablet at for tis purpose (

Just downloaded the new APK (opengl) this is working for me
Even the skin problem is fixed! Thnx, will continue testing

As a side question, is it somehow possible to use the smokey skin on lower resolution devices?

Did you download it from the new location? see:beginning of the thread.


Oops, i didn't... However, now i just downloaded both the qt4 apk's, but both don't start on my Nexus4, crash at startup.
I did already update the skins again... (with the script

Before i updated to apk's from the new location ( i had similar issues to 'bherbie'
But i noticed it only if i was playing media, and then start qorbiter, i get an empty screen. (only the background)

My Razzr met an untimely death and I now have a Motorola Moto X running android 4.2.2 and testing the qt4 nightly build.  This is a screen shot of what I get, nothing more and nothing less.

I have 2 android phones, a Nexus 4, and a HTC Desire HD

On the Desire HD, qt4 is working and qt5 is not working. if i start qt5, i only get a black screen
I have to say, i have a custom rom on the Desire HD

On the Nexus 4, qt4 is working, but qt5 is not completly working. in qt5 none of my media gets displayed, or qt5 crashed when i press the media button. and i have some rotating issues with qt5
If i play media while the qt5 orbiter is running on my phone, qt5 crashes, and i cannot start it again until media playback has finished

I've tried several times to reinstall the skins, and running the script from

I love the smokey skin on my nexus!!!

For me, the media browsing is terrible on my nexus, because for every episode of a TV show i get a hit in the first screen, with just the title of the show, if i click that, it seems i get a randomly generated number, if i click that, i get into a season folder for that tv show.

I would like to see the Viewed/Unviewed options added, is this a possibility?
This would already help a lot.

imho the performance could be better, perhaps it is an option to throttle the data based on the processing speed of the device?

I found a strange feature, that if you use the back button in media browsing, it jump back to (for me) a random location

If i need to somehow make logging, or screenshots, tell me how i can make them, and i will)))

Keep up the good work!

Thanks guys,
I already fixed the issue of non index media. It had to do that my media was already indexed on another location.

If there is something i can do to help resolve the issue with the softlinks, let me know.


I can buy there on the german Ebay, for an interesting price, but whats up with this firmware issue?

Is there a way to check before buying?


PS This the Ebay link :

I see that Danfoss has made a windows application, to make the Danfoss RA-Plus-W independant. Perhaps this tool is also usable on the Living Connect?

I dont know if this belongs here,

But after connecting my Synology NAS in my LinuxMCE network, it got detected. I have set the share's up as Public content, and use LMCE direcory structure. I moved my videos and audio into the LMCE dir structure. All things looked good. But video's do not get indexed. I can search for video's and they will play at my core, but not at any MD.

 For Audio, it doesn't work at all....

I've checked the directories, and there are only softlinks made in the /home/public/data/videos dir. Not in any other public directory

Also softlinks for videos are made on the MD's, but the NFS share doesn't get mounted.

Can anybody help me to shed some light onto this issue?

I tried snap LMCE-1004-20120623013626110.iso
But it didn't boot, not from USB and not from DVD

It could not find the boot image

Now i am installing 1 snap earlier, and this one does boot.

Hi all,

As mentioned, i tried reinstalling my core.
At first everything seemed to go perfect, Kubuntu install, and MCE install from repo.
Core installed, all seemed to go smooth, after install, reboot, and i got the AVwizard, wow, finally all goes well )))
Configured with av wizard, X starts, black screen with white overlay mentioning the usual stuff. and after that :

"The Orbiter cannot register with the router. Please try again later."

Also if i look in the webadmin,Advanced,Configuration,Devices I see 3 core's with their own on-screen orbiters

I deleted the 2 extra cores, did a reset and a full regen on the orbiter, and a reboot.
Now i get the setup wizard, followed it, and finally, i have my LinuxMCE box.

Thanks everyone for your help.

1. I already have 3 seperate home networks, now with linuxmce there is a 4th... I have a Home LAN, a DMZ, and a Storage Network for my 2 ESXi servers and My Openfiler Storage server.

2. I have a NVidea Geforce 7600 GS in the LinuxMCE box. Screen-type VGA-2, Resolution at 1280x1024, Refresh at 60Hz
I have tried all 3 UI's now, but none work.

I have downloaded the latest snapshot, 23951, and will reinstall with this.
