LMCE on Dell SX270
« on: February 06, 2008, 11:51:02 pm »
I have this little dell. Its a P4 2.8 with 2 gigs of ram and 20gig hd. It uses the 865g Intel GMA. It installs successfully and goes through the motions of setting up the mce. A few questions. is there any way that I can use the UI2 with out alpha blending, or is the vdo card too much of a POS? If I turn off DHCP and disable the router I cant get in to the admin page from any computer except the core. I can ping it and get replies but no admin page from anywhere else. I also use the gyration remote from Gyration and not the FIIRE remote, does the mod work pretty good? Any replies would be very helpful thanks everyone.
