Complete newbie to Linux and even newer to LinuxMCE so sorry if these are dumb questions:
Hi There and Welcome!
I have a Gigabyte MB with Intel GMA X4500HD. Should this support alpha blending etc out of box? I can only get the system working if select basic otherwise a OpenGL error comes up when loading orbiter. I have read about updating Nvidia drivers but unsure if there is a solution similar for Intel? Wiki stats intel chipset should work with anything after 7.04 so hoping this board is no different and its a quick fix.
The GMA-X4500HD has so far only supported UI1...on paper at least it should handle UI2 + Overlay...but thats on paper...
I have the system working under basic graphics mode and otherwise from random blank screens appears to be working ok. Plays some DVD's but errors on some. I have seen another post on that so will try that fix if can get TV working:
Current issue is trying to install Nova-TD-500(not diversity model from what can tell). I have read various posts on the card and everything suggests should be working under 8.10. Could someone please confirm this will work and if so how to install? I have tried adding it to the MD via web admin as a PVR-500 but nothing seems to happen and not sure if thats even the correct setting.
Drop me a PM with your email address via the forum and I will send you a pre-built v4l package that should get your T-500 working for you.
When I open MythTV there is an error about PnP (Presume that is trying to say no tv card?) and then displays a database details page (ie server address, username, password etc) it is set to localhost with standard setting but when click next I get error unable to connect? Do I need to set this up somewhere else?
Thanks in advance.
You need to run MythTV backend setup on the Core... adding your capture cards etc (you'll need a working T-500 for that though) and you then also need to run MythTV backend setup on each MD too (even if you have no local capture cards)
All the best
