I think I solved the problem, The first problem I had was that I was searching for "done with adding new device" which is not what the alert said. So I watched it a few more times and realized exactly what it said "Done with new device added".
I then found a couple of postings that helped me out. This posting has the explanation from the man himself Thom http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=7030.0
with a link to a fix on that page.
The fix is to adjust the orbiter's "Alert Level" on the LinuxMCE admin site but I could not find it at first and then I clicked the "Advanced" option and found the setting near the bottom and changed it from "all" to "important" so I hope this works.
