This behavior also exists on 1004.  I just did a fresh 1004 install and replicated the setup and no media scenarios were generated.

I was just curious to see if anyone was interested in trying to make this functional.  I would be happy to provide feedback on any LMCE release, whichever one is most attractive for others to collaborate on.

I've seen this behaviour when the hard drive is full up, could that be the issue?

Cheers,

Anybody knows what might cause this bug to occur:

http://trac.linuxmce.org/trac/ticket/2140

Possy saids he has extra drives running without issues which seems strange if that ticket is valid.

Installation issues / 12.04 multichannel sound card with squeezeslave
« Last post by Michaelree on August 26, 2014, 05:50:58 am »
I am having a problem getting virtual output on a sound card with squeezeslaves to work in 12.04 Aug 16th snapshot.  I have the virtual outputs setup and when I do a speaker test I get the front right, front left on the correct port on the sound card, but when I try to play something on the squeezeslave I get no sound or the sound comes from a different port on the sound card or even from another sound card.  I double checked that the alsa output in the squeezeslave was set to the correct Virtual_XX, and everything looks the same as I had it setup in 10.04.  Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks very much for all that great information!  I think I have most all the details ironed out consistent with your recommendations.  As for the over-spec on the server, I found this (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Core_Server_Newbie_Pack) after I had put down the specs in my last message.  In comparison, I can probably drop some $$$ by backing off the specs quite a bit and not lose performance. 

This info was extremely helpful!  Thank you again.  I'll do my best to keep information flowing with respect to how I put it all together and the equipment I use.  Is there a location where someone can add details of a particular setup for others' benefit?  Somewhere in the wiki?

Re adding your config to the wiki; just create a page and add your systems spec there. Glad to be of help.

All the best

Users / Re: Why Do Media Directors Exist?
« Last post by totallymaxed on August 25, 2014, 06:30:43 pm »
Maybe I am misunderstanding you. I have UTP cables on the different locations. No coax though. and neither do I have extra PVR's / STBs. Those all bring extra complexity, costs, power and possible points of failure usage I supposed.

There are many different configurations that you can implement. You could centralise pretty much everything - Core, STB/PVR's, Suround Amps, Zone Amps etc in which case you could use an HDMI Matrix that supports Cat5/6 Baluns (ie it will send HDMI over Cat5/6) in room to send the HDMI picture at full quality to each room. You would then IP control the Matrix to route particular sources to specific rooms and control the TV over IP too (select input, vol +/-, mute etc etc). Your MD's or Media Players can then be centralised and routed through inputs on the Matrix or be located in room. If you locate them in-room then typically you would locate the controlled Amplifier in room too as it makes routing audio to them much easier.

It seems to me that the only reason to have MD's is if you want to use VDR/Myth and access live TV via them and you want to use LMCE on-screen Orbiter UI. If you only want to access recorded TV then you can use SmartTV's or Media Players to access those recordings via upnp (that works for Myth... not sure if can do that with VDR).
This would only need a single Cat5/6 cable to each room/TV location. If you need additional Cat5/6 connections in the room then use a small switch to enable that.

This doesn't add complexity at all.

All the best

Thanks to Uplink, we now have a JSON Plugin available inside of LinuxMCE as well. For details, please visit http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/JSON_Plugin

Thanks again Uplink for your help, in getting Dianemo's code working for LinuxMCE. It is very much appreciated.

Installation issues / Re: video stops playing
« Last post by Govo on August 25, 2014, 01:20:31 pm »
Hi

Thanks for the reply, its  a 400GB internal drive currently formatted a ntfs , I have now found that it is causing the  issue.

Every film  stored on that drive  stops playing.

I moved one film from it to the main drive that lmce is installed on and it work  no problem.


Time to move the files to a different drive and then reformat the 400GB to ext4 or ext3

Which one would you recommend ext4 or ext3  for performance wise

cheers
