Users / Re: Pluto_media over 5,5GB?
« on: October 31, 2012, 02:08:07 am »
I noticed this myself. I had over 60,000 records in Pluto_media.File. I just checked again and it's down to ~ 2,000. I had thought to reformat my MD hard drives. Not sure why I have them in the first place. Just habit I guess.
I shoved old drives in them. Maybe it was picking up the gazillion media files floating on them?

Also chose all public as setup. Not sure if any of this did anything just thought I'd share.

Here is the pastebin before I installed the device.

Here is after

http://pastebin.com/KPQ3rHNR

I contacted the vendor earlier today before I posted here and did some tests. He made me try it on a windows machine. Which I do have an old laptop running xp. It came up with device has malfunctioned. Device manager showed vendor ID 0000 PCI ID 0000. I suspect this device was DOA. He said he will ask around to see if others have seen this. I'm hoping this is not common for this device. I've had very good luck with Newegg stuff. The price is really nice but this shows reduced from like $30 to $15 so I'm concerned something is up. This is the initial phase of whole house audio so I really can't get people mad at me while development takes place.

One thing I'm thinking is a power hub...
Will try that next.

Thanks again L3mce

It was on my laptop running 11.10. Suspect same result on 10.04. But I'll check.

Your correct that is onboard device.

Here you go

Code: [Select]
jim@jim-Inspiron-N5110:~$ cat /proc/asound/cards

                      HDA Intel PCH at 0xf7f00000 irq 54

Obviously this not DCE. I can do that if you want...

I think I may look at his code and see if I can get a list of compatible devices. Or devices that maybe compatible.

Still would like to know if others have seen consistent failure with this or other Startech devices.

Hi

Anybody have any experience with the Startech ICUSBAUDIOB audio device? I got one that was dead on arrival. Nothing shows up on lsusb and dmesg | grep USB shows
Code: [Select]
[  205.776071] usb 3-2: new full speed USB device number 3 using xhci_hcd
[  206.295284] usb 3-2: new full speed USB device number 4 using xhci_hcd
[  206.814525] usb 3-2: new full speed USB device number 5 using xhci_hcd
[  207.333741] usb 3-2: new full speed USB device number 6 using xhci_hcd
[  207.741171] hub 3-0:1.0: unable to enumerate USB device on port 2

Should at least give me a vendor:pciid right?

I just don't want to waste my time exchanging this and having them die.
Using it for multiple zone audio with squeezeslave. They are very cheap $13US on newegg.

Thanks

Hi torontob

For my experience I have run a headless core (No MD) to just do automation. You can control this through the Web Admin portal if you are just having the automation respond to events (motion detectors, sensors tripped, sunrise, etc.) You can also install as many orbiters as you want to manually turn on or off devices or open close shades. I have done this with an old HP that ran for about $250 maybe 6 yrs ago. You could probably find a friend with one ready to go to the curb. The core just doing this does not require much computing power. For this setup I would spend very little on the PC, nothing if your crafty. You can always upgrade to make use of the other features of LinuxMCE.

Installation issues / Re: Sound Problems 1004 beta
« on: October 24, 2012, 11:33:36 pm »
Ok added both to Backports_Required in /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh.

rm xorg
rebooted
AVWizard started fine
No sound device shown
No sound
Wizard finished fine
Tried to play video
Does not play and no sound. Looks like remote is starting though.

Rebooted
Looks like it attempted to install backports after restart.
Looks like it ran into trouble.
Saw something like;
Code: [Select]
Setting up linux-backports...blah
update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-2.6.32-44-generic

Usage: modprobe [-v] [-V] [-C config-file] ...blah
modprobe -r [-n] [-i] <modulename> ...
modprobe -l -t <dirname> ...blah

Then hung there for a while.

Rebooted
Now at startup screen says "Alsa backport modules already loaded"
Lmce starts fine
Does not play video
No sound

Removed the files you mentioned above again.
Added both to Backports_Required in /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh again
Removed xorg.conf
Rebooted
AVWizard started fine
No sound device
No sound
Wizard hangs at blinking curser after completing
Forced reboot
Startup screen says "Alsa backport modules already loaded"
Lmce starts fine
Does not play video
No sound

Anything I can do let me know

Thanks

Installation issues / Re: Failed to set up x on media director
« on: October 24, 2012, 02:59:05 am »
Ok this is solved.

The video driver was not being loaded. This is now working as of 26592. The card, as mentioned above is an "ASUS GT218 GeForce 8400 GS".
I liked it because it was fanless and cheap. Newegg like $29.00. The good news is it looks like HDMI audio is working too but not tested.

This is all due to L3mce efforts with much thanks!

Sorry my last post got lost... my fault

Yes I understand the confusion.

I have an MD that was giving me the "Failed To Setup X" issue. That is now running perfect after
[quote ]Please edit /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh
under DRIVER_260_SUPPORTED=
add 10c3
[/quote]

And is also running perfect with the core running 26592. So that issue is closed with much thanks!

I have now my hybrid/core that has always had sound issues with 10.04. I have been fixing this by updating the alsa driver to 1.0.25. I do this all outside lmce at initial install. I swap this machine between a "Production" system and development so that I keep the same hardware. I do this by swapping hard drives. I also do clonezilla but not today. It is currently set up with a fresh install of 26592 from USB iso. It does not play video or sound.
Hopefully that helps a little

Ok so for
Code: [Select]
lspci -nn | grep VGA | grep -wo ....\:....
10de:0614

I renamed the files you mentioned.
Got the new ones with wget.
Changed nvidia-install.sh and added 10de under Backports_Required
removed xorg and restarted
AVWizard started fine.
No sound device shown
No sound

Also
Code: [Select]
aplay -l
aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...

Let me know if I can do anything more. And thanks for your time.

Ok here's what I have

Installed fresh 26592.

AVWizard started fine (this usually does not happen until I update alsa driver)
No sound device shown in wizard.
Selected stereo analog. No sound at test
Wizard finished fine.

Setup wizard started fine.
No Sarah video (this usually happens when I have some sound issue)
That wizard finished fine.

Ran AVWizard again
Selected SPDIF Optical
Still no sound

Loaded some video media onto hard drive. Tried to play but would not play. Interesting though is that the remote came up. Also no sound.

Did
Code: [Select]
jim@dcerouter:~$ sudo aplay -l
[sudo] password for jim:
aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...
jim@dcerouter:~$

Plugged in that MD I was having that "Failed To Setup X" from other post.

Installed perfectly

AVWizard started fine
Sound devices showed up. Interesting to note 2 devices showed Generic and Nvidia. Audio over HDMI? Nice surprise if so.
Selected stereo analog (all I have here and what I'm planning on using)

Setup wizard started fine with the Sarah video and sound.
That finished fine.
Played same video loaded onto core from above and plays fine with audio.
This MD is good to go with much thanks to L3mce. I will update that thread to reflect that when able

I usually run a script that gets my WinTV HVR-2500 going and upgrades the asla driver to the 1.0.25 version and that gets my audio going. I had previously upgraded to 26592 after running that script and had static at the stereo analog as well as whatever sound was playing. SPDIF Optical was perfect.

I converted back to my "Production" setup which is running 26373 with the asla driver upgraded to test the stereo analog.
I ran the AVWizard
The audio device was shown.
I chose stereo analog.
No sound at the test.
Wizard finished fine.
Tried to play video and did not play (no remote this time) also no sound.

I have one more test I can run. I have an USB audio device that I have not yet used. I am planning on using this for whole house audio of which I am just starting to look at.
I would like to see how that performs under 26592.
Should I check this?

Anything else that might be help full?

Take care

Hi L3mce,

Output of sudo aplay -l before latest upgrade
Code: [Select]
jim@dcerouter:~$ sudo aplay -l
[sudo] password for jim:
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC887-VD Analog [ALC887-VD Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1

card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 1: ALC887-VD Digital [ALC887-VD Digital]
  Subdevices: 1/1

Static through analog stereo

After upgrade
sudo aplay -l
Code: [Select]

card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 1: ALC887-VD Digital [ALC887-VD Digital]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Still sound staticy on analog stereo but clear on spdif optical. I think sound was fine on the analog before but I'd like to test to see if it is a hardware issue before saying there is an issue.

I would like to also try this again as a fresh install. I had run my alsa driver upgrade script on this before the last upgrade. I should have that done by this time tomorrow.

Also video plays fine.

Once again thanks for your efforts!

Worked like a charm!

You are a saint.

You work tirelessly at this and if there is anything I can do to help you pm me.

I will convert back over to the development setup tomorrow and get you the aplay info. I'm UTC - 5 right now. So around UTC 15:00

Thanks again!
