Installation issues / Re: Installing Diskless MDs
« Last post by tschak909 on April 02, 2017, 05:54:43 pm »
Looks like you had a kernel mismatch happen. The easiest ways to resolve this are:

* Delete the MD in the web admin, and let it reinstall.
* symlink the default initrd and vmlinuz image to your media director's image.

Installation issues / Re: Installing Diskless MDs
« Last post by maverick0815 on April 02, 2017, 02:40:24 pm »
guys, I have quite a similar problem. After performing an update on my md (asrock ion330) it wouldn't boot anymore. So I too rebuilt the image, which resultet in "45/initrd.img" not being found.
So I rans "usr/pluto/bin/Diskless_CreateTBZ.sh", which ran without detecting any issues, but it seemed quite fast...usually it takes around an hour- this was done after 25 Minutes
I deleted the MD and let it create a new one, which gave me "77/initrd.img" not found.
So what do I do now? Please advise.

Running on 12.04
Cheers
Mario


-------------
I found out that initrd.img points to initrd.img-3.13.0-105-generic and vmlinuz to vmlinuz-3.13.0-105-generic
for both files there ias however a 3.16.0-77 present

oh, and a note on multizone playback: Audio multizone playback is already working very nice due to phenigma's work with software Squeezeboxes on rpis. I did a 9 rpi install on Cyprus and the audio sync worked perfect.

VLC on rpi is possible, but has issues due to no direct support for hardware acceleration. There is some work in the VLC/RPI community to get the omxplayer acceleration code into VLC. No idea when that might happen.

People are using qOrbiter on RPI, but I have no idea how far it is in terms of being replacement for the onscreen Orbiter.

If a file can't be played hardware assisted, I just go ahead and recode it with ffmpeg. But most just work.

Thanks Posde
It was some time ago that I made enquiries on status of rpi, so wasn't aware of the work on VDR. It sounds positive that vdr will find a place on rpi and as you point out does everything else as well as cec control.

Taking this into account and Exploring the rpi option:

- Noting Thoms very recent and impressive beta work on vlc player, will this be supported in the rpi build?
- Qorbiter on rpi I read is in progress, is there a likely time frame on this work?
- in your experience are the rpi3 playing well with mkv?

In asking, by no means am I looking for a definative time frame or to set an expectation for others I am merely trying to understand where my efforts are best directed.

If I can back track a little, and doing a big of extra forum searching hdmi matrix seems to be a mixed bag. Are there device templates or work that is needed or is this new device, database work? It seems that the Dianemo approach is not compatible or at least readily adaptable for use with Linuxmce?

I appreciate ur comments and feedback Posde.

I have checked in the code, and prepared a merge request to master...but polly needs to finish working on gitlab before it can go through... as soon as it goes through, and we get a package, i'll make an announcement that it can be selected.

If you take game player out of the mix, I do not see anything the rpis can't do. Granted, I didn't yet get of my butt to make the VDR Player work for the rpi, but it is on my radar of things to do. Probably as soon as SD TV is being turned off in Germany, I'll go and bite the bullet. The VDR Player device itself is already being built, iirc, so it is just a matter of installing the necessary vdr packages.

Thanks Posde for quick reply,

The matrix is serial controlled, I was hoping to use it as more of a multiple hdmi switch rather than matrix all outputs simultaneously etc. That said, thanks for the feedback.

Virtualizing mds was due to no vdr/myth on rpi and looking forward for gpu intensive uses such as game player (waiting with hope and patience for Thoms  work) and UI2. These would be for living areas where live TV for example is desired. Set-top boxes are no longer useful nor affordable in Australia these days.

I3/i5 Nuc or equivalent would quickly see me spending another good chunk of cash with Aud prices. Hence the option for vm and leverage some existing power.
