I tried for a long time to get it working and then gave up:,12928.0.html

After a couple of brute force attacks against the Asterisk server I installed Fail2ban per the wiki which seems to work against this sort of attack (and I have locked myself out a couple of times!):

I have my components in the basement and the tv in the living room. In cold weather I get some issues with hdcp handshake meaning the screen flashes on and off. I am using 25ft mono price inwall rated net jacket HDMI cables. I am going to add ferrite beads and possibly a HDMI repeater. The other thing you will notice is that long HDMI cables are heavy and put strain on your HDMI ports. Take a look at mono prices strain relief adapters that are tighter than the spec and screw into the screw above your port to ensure a strain relieved connection

I love my Onkyo.  It did have me scratching my head a while though trying to get zone 2 working, I then read that zone 2 must have an analogue input, even if zone 1 and zone 2 are on the same input.  this is another battle - linuxmce outputing analogue and digital audio.

Just bought a house and getting ready to start LMCE deployment...I would like to have 3MD and 2 Fios STB and 1 DVR box wired into one closet.  Can I use just one USB-UIRT to send all the signals to the boxes.  if my orbiter is set to control say...the living room, is the md or core smart enough to know not to change the channel on the bedroom STB...any suggestions?
For this setup, you will need to use a GC-100, because the system will need to distinguish one cable box from another, and a set of Xantech IR emitters.


couldn't he just have 3 USB-UIRT's one connected to each MD controlling one of the Cable boxes?

how are you going to get the video signal to the screens and control the screens/volume etc?

I had that card in my Core for years, it worked out of the box - through 7.10 and 8.10.  I may still have it in my 10.04 core, I will have to check when I get home - I am away right now

I would love Thom to work for LMCE full time and will contribute.  Somebody mentioned a subscription model.  I would think of it more as a club membership - pledges of $100 sound great (and are) but would anybody miss $5-10 per week?

Equally, Thom has just been working on a contract for my company for the last 6-12 months that has just finished.  He did a great job, if your company has any contract work that can be done remotely, then throw him a line!!

I have been sending some of my stuff to my ftp site using duplicity.  here is an example of the contents of a file called i created:

Code: [Select]
# help for this file can be found in
export PASSPHRASE=somethinghard
export FTP_PASSWORD=somethinghard
# Check to see if we're at the first of the month.
# If we are on the 1st day of the month, then run
# a full backup.  If not, then run an incremental
# backup.
if [ $date = 01 ]
        duplicity full /home/public/data/pictures/931.51\ GB\ \(sda1\)\ SAMSUNG_HD103\ \[39\]/ ftp://myftplogin/photos #>>/var/log/duplicity/photos.log
        duplicity /home/public/data/pictures/931.51\ GB\ \(sda1\)\ SAMSUNG_HD103\ \[39\]/ ftp://myftplogin/photos #>>/var/log/duplicity/photos.log
# Check
# for all the options available for Duplicity.

# Deleting old backups
  duplicity remove-older-than 2M --force ftp://myftplogin/photos #>>/var/log/duplicity/photos.log
# Unsetting the confidential variables so they are
# gone for sure.

set PASSPHRASE and FTP_PASSWORD to something hard, I have used "somethinghard" in this example.  also replace the mtplogin with yours also.

I have this same problem and fixed it with:

Code: [Select]
cd /usr/lib/flashplugin-installer || cd /usr/lib/adobe-flashplugin/
sudo perl -pi.bak -e 's/libvdpau/lixvdpau/g'

Works well for me
