Well I got my 8.04 machine up running and configured. it seems to be working great other than scrolloing issues (known Nvidia driver problems)
Anyhow I have installed some software on this machine to playback HD files at full res from the server that I cannot do in LMCE currently and I want to add the machine to the living room system as a A/V device basically. It is controlled via Lirc of course and uses the MCE Remote and its own transceiver.
There is only a couple things I am wondering - when I put this machine on the internal lan, the core will detect it of course and ask if I want to use it and if I say no it will stick it unknown devices. If I set it up via an A/V device Like a DVD player for instance - how do I handle the ip address etc and do I tell the core to use it when it asks.
