Installation issues / Re: 14.04 Installation - More Minor Issues
« Last post by cafedumonde on August 26, 2016, 02:37:19 am »

Phenigma,

Thanks for the reply. Follow ups are as follows:

1. How do I turn off auto configure for mythfrontend? Is there a wiki reference?

2. I found another webcam, which is a Cisco branded camera, though it exactly looks like one of the later  Logitech models. It is working.

3. I am happy to create an issue in gitlab. How do I do it?

Installation issues / Re: 14.04 Installation - More Minor Issues

1. Mythfrontend does not save settings. I have changed a few things in the front end, in particular the scaling of the video image as negative percents. These parameters are not saved, even when I exit the frontend setup gracefully.

Ensure that auto configuration is turned off for mythtv, lots of the scripting is broken and may be over-writing your settings.

2. Cannot install a Logitech Quickcam. There is a wiki page for this here:

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Logitech_QuickCam_Sphere

I followed the instructions, substituting "**PWC Camera Drivers" for "PWC Camera Drivers" in the instructions. Only the ** version appeared in the dropdown when building the device template. The motion wrapper seems to work fine: I get a grey square with some text overlayed when I choose the camera in the Security scenario. The LED on the camera does not illuminate, as it did when I have this same camera connected to my old 810 installation. I think this means that the camera driver is not working.

The PWC driver was discontinued in 2006 and has failed to build since 1004.

3. The system has still not discovered my Denon 2307 receiver over RS-232. The discovery script does not seem to be running. How can I initiate it? As indicated by Phenigma in an earlier post, there is a question about the syntax in the discovery script, assuming that I can get the script to run again.

I'd forgotten about that.  With a quick second look I think the scripts are okay logic wise, although have a strange use of $?.  Perhaps you can create a issue in gitlab with your findings from the scripts so far.  I can then see what I get from my Denon.

Looking up the camera model number on the Logitech support site, it is a QuickCam Pro 3000. Again, I had this working under 810.

Thanks,

Installation issues / 14.04 Installation - More Minor Issues
« Last post by cafedumonde on August 26, 2016, 12:58:01 am »

My 14.04 Installation has proven to be very usable in spite of some persistent minor issues. In each case I have reviewed the wiki as well as explored the installation in order to troubleshoot. I hope that I am not posting too much; my intention is to ask the community only were I am unable to flush out solutions on my own. I completely accept that LMCE is a project rather than a product, and that figuring things out is part of the fun. Solutions and clues equally welcome in response to my questions.

My current issues are as follows:

1. Mythfrontend does not save settings. I have changed a few things in the front end, in particular the scaling of the video image as negative percents. These parameters are not saved, even when I exit the frontend setup gracefully.

2. Cannot install a Logitech Quickcam. There is a wiki page for this here:

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Logitech_QuickCam_Sphere

I have used both, I created the methods to boot the rpi's.  The currently recommended method is diskless style booting and that will always be the preferred method, now that it is available again.  That being said the updated files to use the diskless boot are not yet in the repository.

I usually attribute this to bad cabling or switches.  I can say that I have absolutely no problems accessing/playing media with my RPi3s.

The verification is due to spamming, it goes away after making a few posts. 

And as Alblasco points out 1604 has a couple of bugs that prevent daily use atm.  And due to new boot methodologies we may need to alter our dvd creation.  Net install for 1604 can be accomplished.

Hi guys just to let you know I keep on getting errors when booting the 2 latest 1604 installation dvds
The very first error I get is unable to mount sda5 due to geometry

"Bad geometry: block count 120019712  exceeds size of device (256 blocks)
...
Mounting /dev/sda5 on /cdrom failed: invalid argument
It also fails to create the ssl certificate unfortunately I wasn't able to capture a photo of any more failures, login service was one of them
After it has finished "loading" it's finishes on cli login
Md5 and ram checks out
If i can figure out how to add a photo from my phone to the post I'll put in a screen shot
Thanks mat
Now to figure out why I can't even get a grub screen for 1004!
Ps what's with this verification thing? I have to press for a new image at least 10 times just to get one that's readable! Each time!
