I have fianlly got my LinuxMCE Core/Hybrid system up and more or less working.
I have tried various methods of controling it (XDA mobile didn't work, WII remote kinda worked but was no good)
I finally setteled on using a windows Media Centre controler plugged into a USBUIRThttp://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/USB_UIRThttp://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Windows_MCE_Remote
(Mines the 2nd from the left, 1039)
I have a windows Media Centre PC as my television which I have been using for years. I am trying to use LinuxMCE instead. I am hoping someone here can answer some basic questions reguarding usage.
1. When you are watching a recorded program and you have finished with it and want to delete it how do you do it? In Windows MCE you simply press the 'i' button on the remote which brings up a context menu. It has options like program info, restart and delete. I can't find any equilivant in LinuxMCE. The only way I can see to delete a program is by going to the recorded programs finding the program you want to delete and pressing delete. There must be a quicker way to delete what is currently being watched.
2. When I select a program to record I like it to start this 5 mins before the air time and finsih 10 mins after. I know how to set this manually for each recording. Does anyone know how to make this automatic?
Any help would be apreaciated.
