Up and running with minor issues
« on: September 20, 2008, 05:05:57 pm »
After having multiple crashes with my MS MCE 2005, i decided it was time to give LinuxMCE a go. I used the DVD for install
on my system:

Desktopboard:Intel D845WN
Processor:Intel Pentium 4 1.5 Ghz
Video:ASUS EN7600GS 256MB AGP
RAM:1024 MB (2x512)
HDD:Samsung Spinpoint 160GB
Audio:Creative Audigy Platinum
NIC #1:Sitecom    
NIC #2:Compaq    
Power Supply:300W
DVD-RW:NEC-2510A
Bluetooth:ASUS
Infrared Remote Control:Windows MCE

Running UI2 with alpha blending in a CORE/Hybrid system. Able to play and rip DVD's.

Don't seem to get MythTV running for some reason. The PVR-150 Hauppage is recognised in the admin website. It starts up and after that the screen turns black. When using the Menu button on the remote, the text in the upper bar says: not available

Searched the wiki and forum but haven't found de right solution just yet.

Also the flickr screen saver doesn't work. I do have the pictures and have the script enabled in the admin website, but the screen stays black.

Maybe someone can help me out with these issues?

Really love this Media Center! So much better then MS...

To start with your computer is more of a MD than core or hybrid.


Don't seem to get MythTV running for some reason. The PVR-150 Hauppage is recognised in the admin website. It starts up and after that the screen turns black. When using the Menu button on the remote, the text in the upper bar says: not available. - Go to the KDE Desktop and setup Mythtv.

Hope this helps.
