1. MS Remote doesn´t work
2. LinuxMCE says that something didn´t start up right, but it seems to work anyway and i can´t find the log file
3. I have to unplug my Logitech wireless dongle and plug it in again every time i start linuxMCE to get my keyboard and mouse to work
4. Linux MCE didn´t find my media files on my Nas server (buffalo terrastation)
5. No TV - myth tv setup hangs my computer
6. VERY low res - the text can´t stay inside the buttons
Can you PLEASE help me get past theese points, because i want to get it to work this time!
Okay, i'll deal with your issues one at a time:
1. what dongle are you using? I am using a USB UIRT, and it is working flawlessly, no configuration needed.
I´m not sure - it comes with hauppauge pvr500 - i think it´s for mce2005 - the only text i can see is on the remote - it says RC6
2. what didn't start up, correctly?
I have no idea
how can i find out !?
3. I use a different wireless keyboard/mouse combo (very rarely, because I use my Fiire chief most of the tiem), from Adesso.. their wireless keyboard/mouse combo that works flawlessly.
Logitech! what can you do
4. did you tell it to use LinuxMCE's directory structure? it works best if you do this, and move the files into those directories.
Well! i guess that is true - but you know its a terastation for a reason - i have 600gig of data on that thing!
But OK! where do i do that
5. very strange..what tuner setup are you using?
PVR500 i have configured the back end and i have been running the front end from desktop and i can see TV there (it is flickering and there is no audio) , but pressing TV from LinuxMCE gives me: MythTV is having problems - reset the backend?
6. it's not a question of being low res, it's just a fact of the skin generation process..this will be refined.
as for the video problems you had, did you ever look at the AVWizard page on the wiki? you don't have to blindly press keys to get past a point... the number keys on the top select the resolution and input to use. also it is worth noting that on NVIDIA cards with mixed ports, the first VGA port is always the DVI port with a dongle attached (this is a peculiarity of both the way the cards are designed and NVIDIA's port of the Linux driver.)..so attach a DVI to VGA dongle if you need to... no need to flip flop video driver stuff.
So you say that i can just press ? 2 or something like that at it would select a differet output? A lot of people are having problems with this - maybe it should be pointed out more!!!! BTW. i´m running DVI->HDMI
Just tested this for the "fun" of it - geeeeee! that could have saved me hours -> but that is also a problem to many fixes and workarounds to read and deal with!
Thank you for the help so far
