Ok, one more thing
I've scanned for tv stations probably 10 times already and every time rtl television is missing...I don't get it...

Quality control. RTL TV just doesn't broadcast stuff worth watching :)
Installation issues / 12.04 install report
« Last post by maverick0815 on November 16, 2014, 08:00:34 pm »
So I finally took the plunge.
at first I tried the DVD install, but that didn't seem to work out for me. In order to boot my computer with 12.04 I needed to run with bootoption
. It looks to me that the installer does not care much for that.
Next I installed kubuntu 12.04 and went with the internet- install. The avwizard  came up, but it was enlarged over the whole screen. I edited xorg.conf and changed "Nvidia" to "nv" in the driver section. Another reboot and the wizard went through.
however my clients didn't get their IPs.
I found the following:
Networksettings in webadmin were correct
Ifconfig showed for eth0 , which was not correct
Pushing update in the webadmin, without any changes, updated the IP of the nic.
dhcp still not running, showing showed "cannot access /etc/bind/rndc.key permission denied"
Adding "/etc/bind r, " as well as "/etc/bind/ ** r," did the trick

Next thing was tv-card (Hauppauge nova hd-s2)
firmware did not get installed (linux-firmware-nonfree)
had to manually mal videoconnections in order to get tv playback, otherwise mythic would claim that all tuners were busy.

Md creation was straightforward

That's it so far, tomorrow I will check telecom and report back

Anyone?  Is this a case of needing to make a non - generic template specifically for this thermostat?

Soon i will have the time to finish this. in a couple months.

Would you mind if we took what we there and added a simple interface in the web admin?

Users / 'HDMI CEC Guide' Web Page - generally useful information about HDMI-CEC
« Last post by totallymaxed on November 14, 2014, 03:23:53 pm »
The url below points to a new Web page I've created called 'HDMI CEC Guide' that will cover all things HDMI-CEC related. The 'HDMI CEC Guide' page is not about our CEC software but will be focused on universally useful bits of information to do with HDMI-CEC in general. I'm still dumping my scribbled notes into the page so expect it to grow considerably as I do that (I have far more scribbled notes than even I expected!).

Please take a look at the page if you are into HDMI-CEC or related stuff. I hope you find it useful.

All the best


PS If you spot any mistakes or have something you think I should add let me know. Likewise contact me if you have HDMI-CEC related questions that are not answered by the 'HDMI CEC Guide'
Users / Re: NAS - FreeNAS, LMCE or something else?

I'm looking for a reliable and easy way to store my data so that I can access it from any of the devices in my home while automatically backing up data. I'm in the process of learning about FreeNAS and I like what I see but I'm having a hard time determining if it's a good fit for me.

In order of priority, this is what I'm looking to do:
Critical Data Storage – I currently have ~30GB of data that I would consider critical and irreplaceable. Normally new content is added rather than changed. I currently use a combination of Dropbox and google drive to protect that data but I would prefer something a bit more seamless.

Replaceable Data Storage – The bulk of my content is recorded TV shows or movies for LMCE. That content is generally removed after consumption. It is not irreplaceable but would be a PITA if lost.

Usenet Download Server – I've recently started using sabnzbd, couchpotato and sickbeard on an old P4. I can see myself digging more into them and expanding into more related applications which are available as FreeNAS plugins. I suspect that if I didn't do FreeNAS that I'd be able to run these applications on my LMCE core. (right?)

I like the RAIDZ2 reliability in FreeNAS but considering my limited needs, it seems like it will be the cost of a FreeNAS box with four matching HDs is significant.

What options should I be looking into?

Thank you,

We used to build & sell our own FreeNAS based NAS's but eventually we realised that it just didn't make commercial sense (and it wasn't very 'Green' either) and now we just recommend that our installers purchased a respected, branded commercial NAS ie something like a Synology. We also always recommend using raided NAS's over internal hard drives as we've found this to be the most reliable solution by far. As posde says backing up your stuff is essential and rsync is almost universally the solution for doing that even in small commercial NAS's these days.

However...if your building your own system then its very likely that building your own NAS too is something you'd like to do. So I would say going FreeNAS etc on your own hardware in that case looks like a nice solution still (commercial rules don't apply in this case!)

All the best

MTU 576 is the minimum size for IPv6, maybe that has something to do with it?

I know IPv6 can automatically adjust the MTU size, for an unfragmented end-to-end connection

I find the synology software very good. But the hardware is very expensive imho.

Recently i migrated my FreeNAS server to which is a x64 variant of the Synology software.
You can run this on any 64-bit PC, and in my opinion works perfectly.

What was the final disposition of this. Does someone want to make it into a formal device so users dont have to hit a forum to enable the feature?

Soon i will have the time to finish this. in a couple months.
