Users / Re: NAS - FreeNAS, LMCE or something else?
« on: July 12, 2014, 01:23:05 am »
IMHO FreeNAS is the best way to go for several reasons: ease of setup, ZFS, Plug and Play with LMCE, etc.  In my setup, I use FreeNAS setup with RAID 5 and with a dual NIC - one for my personal network and one on the LMCE network.  Once you have your FreeNAS setup, you can add Transmission, Sickbeard and Couch Potato to download media that will automatically show in LMCE...

I have tested older hardware with LMCE and my first 'production' Hybrid was the same ml530 you are running now and it ran fine.. at first.  Mine began to slow down and I started seeing lagging\jerking video on MDs during playback and long log in times when trying to ssh, long boot times on MDs and some other weird behavior.  After a lot of hair pulling and late nights on the forum looking for answers, I stumbled across a thread here (sorry don't have the link) talking about the network is one of the most crucial parts of this setup.   

I changed out all of my cheap switches with higher priced Gigabit switches and the problem went away.  Now I only use Gigabit Nics and Gigabit network equipment and haven't seen this issue out of any subsequent build I have done and there have been quite a few of them.

As a side note, you will want more RAM then 2.5GB and some may say that is the issue too...


Users / Re: No sound on cisco 7970
« on: November 27, 2013, 09:28:17 pm »
I'm not sure how many folks actually use the 7970 with LMCE.  I have one and installed it for use mostly as an orbiter in my bedroom but the orbiter part runs extremely slow and some parts of it just aren't functional(floor plan for lights and climate).  I am running 10.04 and thought that the telecom was fixed in the RC but I have never had sound on the 7970.  I have sound on my MDs during telecom but the other party cannot hear me so there are parts of the telecom that are working.

I know this isn't helpful to correcting the issue and I am just letting you know that it doesn't work for me and because of the latency with the orbiter, I am not sure a lot of folks are even using this phone.  I know there are some threads about the 7970 here on the forum but none of them are related to the sound issue - just mostly how to install.


Users / Blu-ray Player or Blu-ray Drive?
« on: October 27, 2013, 01:43:44 am »
I currently have an Oppo bdp-83 with rs232 controls and it now has some issues.  It does not play a lot of the newer discs and there are some playback issues with the ones that do work and the firmware upgrades do not resolve these issues.  So it leads me to ask the question if I should get a new Blu-ray player to replace this one (and if so, what model works best with LMCE) or just add a blu-ray drive to my media director? 

From previous experience I know that blu-ray drives do not work well with Linux (or has this issue been resolved?) but it would provide a more transparent experience when using LMCE. 

Thoughts or suggestions?

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.

Well thanks for what you do, Thom!  This project wouldn't be what it is today without you.

A full time developer?  Count me in!  Are you planning on setting up something like to track the pledges or just have us send money in to your PayPal account?

Ok, I am back from a little time off... do we need more of the URLs entered onto the spreadsheet?  is it fine for where we are at this stage?  What do you need me to do?

Here is what I have so far... still a lot to add.  I am only adding to states that appear in their entirety on each map.  I still need to comb back through and check for duplicates as it can get a little confusing when dealing with this much information.  Let me know if you want anything changed.

Installation issues / No audio in mythtv for one MD
« on: August 24, 2013, 07:36:12 pm »
I recently installed an Acer Veriton as an MD, on my 1004 system, due to its small footprint (installed behind a flat screen mounted above a fireplace) using VGA and analog sound.  Everything works as expected except there is no sound in mythtv, all of the other MDs work fine.  I have looked all over and the only reference I can find is related to Fedora installations and I tried those suggestions and even re-ran AV Wizard and still no sound in myth.

mythtv logs shows no issue and playback of movies, hulu, etc. work fine...

Anyone have any clues?

Wow, there is a lot to sort through!  I am working on it but it is going to take sometime to complete - probably won't be done til tonight.  I am only using the base URL for the animated ones, let me know if you want that differently.

Since I have found very few ways in which to give back to the community, I will volunteer my services for this task as it doesn't appear to require any specific technical skill.  Just let me know how you would like it done...
