sorry for waking up the dead.

maybe there is a better way, because this change is for all mds?

wanting to change the ringtone to a more smooth one, i changed the template


I am now using this ringtone:

there are several others in the same directory. hard to choose. :)

sorry again, should i start a new thread next time?
I think even if the most people here know this already, it could have saved me a bit of time, so i posted a reply....

Users / Re: Smoke detector Everspring SF-812 detection

So i am back.

Installing 12.04 (snapshot: LMCE-1204-20140121095528629.iso) was "smoother" than i thought.
a few obstacles that occured:

bevor the first reboot it seemed to hang at 90%. i switched to a text conole and it magically resumed. maybe it was just superstition and it would have gone further anyway ....

the core/hybrid needed direct access to the internet as it was mentioned here somewhere in the forum. otherwise it got stuck in a reboot-loop due to not detecting the network.
after the installation i can now put a router between core and the internet and network is fine.

my tv-usb-card win-tv-nova is recognized and added several times like it is in 10.04.


first my aeon labs z-stick was not detected. today i have put another usb-stick into the core (tricklestar 300zw-eu). that wasn`t recognized either but after switching back, the aeon stick got detected and added.
i cannot control any lights.
They show up in the web-administration-page but turning on/off has no effect.
the smoke detector is still not recognized correctly (generic tuner).

The new grub recognized my 10.04 installation. so after changing the default grub entry, i now have a nice dual boot.
one stable sysem and one to fiddle arround.
Video and audio is doing fine.
Again thanks!
I wouldn`t have thougt that 12.04 has come that long way already.
The smoke detector is not so important. it is just a nice thing to have that linked to the "matrix".  :)

the perfect reason for me to try 12.04 finally.  ;)
will try to install it (dual boot?) and report back!

i recently got this smoke detector.
It is still detected as Generic Tuner #75 like it is said in this ticket:

I am on 10.04 and did an apt-get update and upgrade today.
also tried to ex- and include the detector again but without any luck of correct detection.

I have now added it manually as child device of ZWave Embedded Security Interf and changed the port/channel number to the port channel number of the generic tuner. (Don`t know if this has the slightest chance to work, but there was hope and not much knowledge. :) )

What can i do now? Iwill be thankfull for any hint.

For the future:
Should i just reopen the ticket or is it okay to ask in this forum.
Really unsure about it and what version  had been fixed.
milestone 12.04 means it is fixed in 12.04 only?

thanks for this fine programm

Yo thanks alot!
looks so much nicer with all that artwork and it`s really amazing, to have all these informations.
i am tagging it manually right now. its really worth it.
A friend told me always, that xbmc i doing the tagging thing automatically.
Hahaa, in Your face linuxmce is doing it even better!   :)
 Or maybe will do it again in the future!

I read about autotagging in some threads here. Whooow what a great feature! i didn`t realised that untill now.
unfortunately it is not working for me.
The "linuxmceTag" is allready fully integrated into linuxmce right now? I dont`t have to download anything as in the wiki about metadata handling?
This is something from the log:

Users / Asterisk outgoing calls [solved]
« on: March 17, 2013, 07:43:31 pm »

first let me thank You all again for this great application.
really enjoying linuxmce.
I recently changed my passive graphic card from a gs8400 to a gt520 in my hybrid and it really boosts the video quality.

but in this whole update tingletangle i updated the system including asterisk.

now i am unable to make extern calls.

It was working just a few weeks ago.

here is my setup:

2 phone lines:  used for outgoing calls / no prefix used for incomming calls / prefix 9 (but this doesn`t seem to have any effect)

I only have softphones configured.

I can call every phone in the house and i can call sip adresses like

If i try to call a "real" phone number, i get this error (asterisk -r):

Code: [Select]
[2013-03-17 17:20:52] WARNING[17580]: chan_sip.c:5441 create_addr: Purely numeric hostname (00mytelephonenumber00), and not a peer--rejecting!
Really destroying SIP dialog '05b97f1759f5631663a257272b88e7c7@' Method: INVITE
[2013-03-17 17:20:52] WARNING[17580]: app_dial.c:2218 dial_exec_full: Unable to create channel of type 'SIP' (cause 20 - Unknown)

00mytelephonenumber00 is the number i got from and the number i registered at voipcheap.

recently i changed

Code: [Select]

in /etc/asterisk/extensions.conf mentioned in another thread.

So incomming calls are working quite fine, besides a missed call is not shown on any orbiter and i cannot access the mailboxmessage.

I googled for the error message but cannot find anything of use (for me).
Is there something (an extension?) in asterisk that translates phonenumbers to sipnumbers?
And did I somehow messed it up?

My past experience with linuxmce taught me to stay away from editing config files on my own. :)

Really would appreciate a hint.


Thought that I tried that already. But it seems that i haven`t.
Deleting all phone lines and adding them again did the trick.
...have you tried turning it off and on again.... :)

but the problem with the mailbox remains.

Users / [solved] VDR Changing default video directory
« on: February 27, 2012, 06:49:22 pm »

i am using VDR with a Hauppauge Nova-TD Stick, after getting into a lot of trouble with mythtv (DiB0070 I2C write failed).
VDR seems more stable to me at the moment.

But as i have a separate media harddisk i want to store my tv-shows under "/mnt/device/ XY/public/data/pvr/".
It is working, but whenever i restart my core/hybrid, i get the wrong owner and file-permission (root:public).
Therefore vdr won`t start.

Is it ok to put something like this

Code: [Select]
chown vdr:public /mnt/device/80/public/data/pvr/ -R
chmod 774 /mnt/device/80/public/data/pvr/ -R

into /etc/rc.local?


Putting User=root into /etc/default/vdr did it!
Thanx a lot, posde!

Users / [solved] motherboard for new hybrid am3/µATX
« on: December 05, 2011, 12:30:15 pm »

2 weeks ago i came across linuxmce. As i always wanted a htpc and i like getting linux on every machine at home, i really want to try it.
my main obstacle is buying new hardware.

I cannot find any µATX/AM3 motherboard with a nvidia onboard card.
Is getting a separate graficcard the only solution?

As a processor i was thinking about picking an amd phenom II or athlon II - not sure about x2,x3...

case: Lian Li PC-V351

TV-Tuner:Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250

I would really appreciate any suggestion, especially regarding the mainboard.
Sorry for my bad english.

all the best!


So i just jumped into the cold water and suprise it`s hotter than i thought.  :D !

This is the hardware i bought for my core/hybrid:

Mainboard: ASUS M5A88-M EVO
CPU: AMD Phenom II X3 720
power: be quiet! Straight Power E8 400W
case: Lian Li PC-V351B
cpu-fan: Scythe Big Shuriken 2
system-hd: Crucial RealSSD M4 2,5" SSD 64 GB
media hd: an old hitachi 2tb (prices are to high at the moment for a new one)
RAM: Kingston HyperX DIMM 4 GB DDR3-1333
1. LAN: Intel® Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter
2. Wan: realtek onboard, after some trouble and using the r8168 module, it is working fine
DVD/Blue-Ray: Lite iHOS104 4x SA bk B

as TV-Card i tried a Haupp. WinTV HVR-900 -t/a USB
did a kernel-upgrade, but then i had problems with nvidia and acpi. now i think it was a problem with the other md and the cause was not rebooting after restarting the core. so i cannot really say if this would have worked.
Now i will try this card: DIGITTRADE DVB-T Stick USB*2.0*1.1*Windows Linux MAC Eee-PC

as for the question "Should i use the onboard or buy a separate graficcard?"
The answer is:
i bought this one:Club512 D3 X GF8400GS passiv R
too much trouble with ui2 and the onboard...

Thanks alot for this master piece of software. what a powerfull monster! it took some time for me to get into it, but the possibilities are endless.
everything is full of stars!
i am really happy that i got aware of linuxmce, even if i get a little bit afraid of my core sometimes... .
