In case anyone wants to buy me some coffee, after I received the GoDaddy invoice over 35USD for another year of linuxmce.org and linuxmce.com registration, feel free :)

Maverick,

just a heads up. Installation of another tftpd server was successful. I will now need to implement the config for it, modify some package definitions in sqlCVS and hopefully, that will get us moving forward.

Users / HDIM CEC pnp

I have created a small test script to check for TVs on the HDMI-CEC string. I'd appreciate if others with HDMI CEC enabled MDs (mostly Raspberry Pis) check it out.

You must install cec-utils first!

Thanks.

I´m running the Core (14.04 AMD64) on VMWare ESXi without any issues. I'm using 3 dvb-s2 tuner (one terratec pic-e dual tuner and one terratec s2 USB) and VDR for tv. I'm also running 5 other VMs on the same physical server (HP Microserver Gen8), one being a LMCE 1604 for testing. The benefits running virtual for me is the ability to use functions such as minecraft server for the kids, UNifi AP-controller and more without messing with the LMCE system. i have snapshots so a roll-back due to me messing things up is done very quickly.

I have done some tests with proxmox some years ago to virtualize the core. The biggest problem I had, was performance issues with my quad TV card. You can passthrough the PCI slot, but still it ended up being way too slow at channel switching and HD was not even running smooth.
Also note that the dhcp server will be running in the VM in LMCE and as soon as you stop it (for backups or upgrades) you will have to find a nice way to still be able to connect to proxmox.

I am running it manually atm, but it involves using dpkg -r --force-xxx to get rid of atftpd and apt-get download another tftpd and manually installing it. This will cause the pluto-newmd-interactor package to be broken (in terms of package management, not functionality).

I am currently working on getting the MySQL glitches of 1604 sorted out. Between that and getting VDR onto a rpi MD, I'll see if I can find some time to get another tftpd into the mix.
