I have been using a LinuxMCE setup for about a year now, and it works great! I've only one PC installed with core and media director.
My challenge is that I have installed a second PC with LinuxMCE (as I do not want to use it as a thin-client), and would like it to be a media director for the core that installed a year ago.
I read the wiki, and it says that it's best to install it as a hybrid and then you may later change it into a media director. However, there is no more information than that?
Can someone tell me (step-by-step), how I can connect my 2nd PC (now hybrid) to the core installed on the 1st PC (the old one)?
you can use any PC as MD as long as you set it up to boot over PXE.... So reboot, set boot to network and off you go... you'll use your second PC as MD for the older core. But it won't run as Core, only as MD for the other.... When you want your core back, then just set it up NOT to boot over network and it will boot from local disk....
