I've updated the file on

http://possy.de/External_Media_Identifier.tar.gz

so people do not need a GUI to download it. Maybe TSCHAK can find a way to upload to a place in the future where commandline downloads are directly possible ;)

I have done another build, this time incorporating a fix for issue #2723. disc ripping should now work correctly. I am looking to see if I need to explicitly add support for firing an identify when the External Media Identifier starts up (e.g. if it crashes.), but I think this should work better.

Please make sure that you can:

* Identify and rip a DVD
* Identify and rip a CD

The current CD and DVD identifiers use the Microsoft Media Services (MDR) data source, and for American DVDs, this works great... Stuff in other zones may not work as well, need to see...

If anyone still has, e.g. a copy of Windows 7, with the media player, and you happen to be in europe, Please try to play a movie, and if a cover art comes back, please talk to me, so that I can instruct you on how to get the necessary network tracing data, so that I can augment the EMI code.

Thanks for the reply artdirtbiker. Your post came in just as I was typing the update. Indeed the nvidia-304 driver was the way to go. Any advice on how to resize the orbiter?

Much progress!!

I went back and read Phenegma's earlier advice to change the driver version in nvidia-install.sh. and tried once again with my original GeForce 7300 card. I figured if the GT 710 wasn't working then the problem is not the card. This time, I used the nvidia-304 driver. The system completes the diskless install and AVWizard functions as it should.

and now the next challenge...

When I select the Composite output, 1080i does not appear in the resolution choices.  However, HD480p and HD720p do. Selecting 480p, I am able to complete the wizard and LMCE works fine with my old video card and TV. It looks OK but I want 1080i. (BTW I *have* made 1080i visible in Resolutions.conf. )

Adding the exit line to Xconfigure.sh, I *am* able to input the modeline for 1080i in xorg.conf and the TV syncs up fine. However, the orbiter is not the correct size. I have tried running AVWizard with Xconfigure turned off but I am unable to generate a 1920x1080 orbiter.

It seems there are two possible solutions:

1: Allow 1080i to be selected in combination with a composite output in AV Wizard. (preferred)

2: Use xorg.conf to force the 1080i video mode and find a way to resize the orbiter.

Please help. Any feedback on which path to follow would be greatly appreciated.

I've modified the nvidia-install.sh in /usr/pluto/bin folder.  I've got a card that only works with the nvidia-304 driver.  In the file, any reference to nvidia-xxx was changed to nvidia-304.  This procedure got me up and running

To clarify, the symptom is the same as before, failure to reboot the second time during the diskless MD install. Could this be a problem with the install script? is there a way to see which packages are actually installed midway through the install process?

Well, I went and bought the GT 710 card. It doesn't work. This chipset was released in early 2016.

Does anyone have an nVidia card working under 14.04? Which one?

Maybe Raspberry Pis are an option:

Installation issues / Video Card Recommendations?
« Last post by cafedumonde on February 15, 2017, 03:05:38 pm »

I am still working on getting my new diskless MD to work at 1080i with my Sony CRT TV. In an earlier post I reported that the install would not complete with an older nVidia Geforce 7300 card, apparently because of incompatibility with current drivers. I am also having difficulty with my onboard Intel graphics, which I believe to be specific to my MB. I would like to try a new nVidia card. Before I purchase, I thought it would be good to get a recommendation from the community. I know a lot of compatibility information used to be in the wiki but it is hard to discern what is current.

My options are:

GeForce 8400
GeForce GT 710
GeForce 210

All are low end cards, costing about $30 before rebates, $15 to $20 after.

The most important thing for me to be able to set the video mode to 1080i using xorg.conf, overriding EDID information, as I have with my core that uses Intel graphics. I tried an ATI card yesterday but this does not seem possible with the proprietary driver that is installed by default. I did try to create my own EDID file, using info from another monitor, as advised in various forms, without success. At this point I just want something that is known to work.

Is anyone setting video modes using xorg.conf with one of the cards listed above? Otherwise what are recommendations?

Thanks,

CDM
