Thanks posde and phenigma Ill give it a try and keep looking for creative ways to improve.



If you add a share point with the LMCE directory structure, and only have the picture branch filled, all the other media files would be ignored. Works nicely for me.
Thanks Posde for your reply!!. but if I do this, I would need to change the structure of the picture folder as it is, would need to move the pictures to the picture file, and also, would need to select the pictures every time I upload a new one.  I was thinking that it would be nice to have a seamless way to add pictures to a sharepoint  and lmce picks them up randomly, just like it does on Flickr.
What do you mean to fill picture branch only?

I would add the share as public and block update media from scanning the folders you don't want scanned. 
  Phenigma, how can you block selective folders?, sounds interesting.  But In my case, a folder is a date, and everything is mixed up on that date, movies taken and pictures), so how would LMCE know to act only on pictures and discard videos?.

What I do right now is to use on family days is to use the PhotoStation and it would play random pics and videos using the firefox.  But Flickr on mce is more nice, clean.

Thanks again for the info!!!..



I found and old post ( of this same request, Is there a way to do it? for mortals like me tha do not handle coding at all?.
I like Flickr pictures, they are nice, but I like mine more!.  Im not storing my pictures on lmce, I have them on a nas share point (synology nas and use DS Photos and also the new moments to upload in a snap pictures from the Phone, which is now days the biggest source of family pictures!).  I would like to just add that share point, without lmce structure (public to all) and make mce to pick random picture just like Flickr within any subfolder, but it would be nice if it can be done from the admin web and a single check or radio button!.  Im sure more users would find this option cool.   I have not added that share folder to mce because if I do it then it will add all the movies also and add them to the list of media available and makes it hard to nicely find movies/tv shows/etc, also is will disturb the media list cosmos harmony! hahahahahaa.. sound like some OCD there!!! ;D.  I dont want pictures and videos taken to be mixed the media list,  Does this makes sense?



Thanks Posde,

Cleaning the coredumps did the trick.!  What got me confused is that I was really trying to copy files to the mounted shares of the NAS on the LMCE.  Since the Nas has right now 2TB free I could not see why LMCE said that there was no space.  As mentioned above, cleaning coredumps did the trick!  thanks !!!!




Why would the NAS mount is eating free available space?.  LMCE is reporting running low in disk and for sure df indicates the same, but I have no media files within the local hard disk on the Server

Hi To all,

Any updates on this?, have any of you had problems with the play and pause buttons?.  Pause works ok but if I press play is the same as stop!.  I cannot power up or down any MD from the power menu from this orbiter.

here we go,,

Great place to start.


Hi to all, it has been a while... but just to do a little follow up on this, this was the route im using for more than a year.  I added chrome as new computing app also kodi.  Not using Kodi much to be honest, but Netflix I´m using it, well,  My wife and kids! are using it everyday.  I just need a bit more computing power on that MD in order to have better navigation (ZOTAC MAG) navigates bit slow netflix website but once the streaming starts, all is ok.  Navigation is done by wireless keyboard and mouse.  The onscreen keyboard is useless.


I'm not posde, but you're welcome.  ;)

You're issue looks very different.  Open a new thread and provide a pastebin of the log.

Hi Again Posde, no need to open a new thread, I found what was causing the problem.  The router was restarting every 10 min, cause by problems with authentication with the NAS.

Thanks again for your quick reply.

Thanks Posde... Ill do it just right now... there is caos in my house!!! hahahahahahah.

Just logged into my server and there are 23 packages can be updated.

I don't see any packages listed for LMCE

Tried running the afterwards and still received the same error

Sun Dec  4 09:34:00 PST 2016 - Installing lmce-md-meta for device 28

/usr/pluto/bin/ line 170: /tmp/TeeMyOutputExitCode_28634: No such file or directory

I am surprised that the packages are not cached at /var/cache/apt/archives.  Looking after this latest update, the only packages that are cached are what was downloaded today.

Not being a bash programmer, could the packages be sourced from the local cache, if available, instead of being downloaded from the internet?

Dear All Im getting this same issue but in 1404 and unable to get md diskless running, my Diskless Create TBZ has a similar output

Here is my output.

I checked the lmce-oauth2-server and it had none installed so I Installed but no different results.

apt-get update and dist-upgrade tells no new or missing packages.  This was tested a few minutes ago.

Any ideas?

Installation issues / Re: ZWN-BPC z-wave 360 PIR motion sensor
« on: December 04, 2016, 03:34:10 am »
Hi to all,
Im doing a follow up on this.  The git way did not went anywhere :o.. but here is something.
I get some information from the sensor.  At least it does measures the battery level ok (it last like a week!), I have to figure out how to change something so it wont drain the battery.  The strange thing is that it stays on sensor triggered.. It never changes to anything else!.. So that is that!... Ill try to continue testing and updating, maybe one day zwave code gets better and it gets solved by itself hahahahaha..  keep all posted.


Check your pipe settings in the connection wizard, and make sure there is a link from MD to receiver to LG
... That was it!!!!... the pipes !.. Thanks posde!!
Whenever I created that MD, I left it as it was after the wizard where it asked about everything and where they are connected, it never passed thru my mind to check the pipes.  There was no connection between the denon and the TV.  I then configured a video pipe from the output of the denon to the HDMI input of the LG tv... and Voila!.. just like you mentioned!, MCE turns on whatever needs to be turned on.

Thanks for the help!

Not turning on the display is on purpose. It does get turned on when you display video, and might get turned on when you use your infrared remote to control the MD.

It used to be different. It used to be, that whenever media was playing both audio output and video output devices were turned on. But that doesn't make sense, so it was changed to only turn on what's needed.
Thanks posde, if this is like that, then something is wrong because.
If I start the media director on a cold start.  It will only turn on the Denon if I move the mouse or if I select to play music or any video.  It will never start the TV (controlled via serial)
If I turn off the MD, it will leave everything on (denon and TV)
If I use on the orbiter TURN on display, it will only do it for the Denon, without the TV.. there is nothing to look at  ;D
LMCE has total control of the TV (LG) via serial but it does not do anything.  It will only turn it on if I select the scene of liveTV.

Any ideas?

At the moment there is no code-free way to do what you want.

You have three choices:

1) Create a ticket and hope someone will look at it.

2) Look at the code, and see what you can find to modify the behaviour yourself.

3) Create a new media playing device/plugin combo that does this.

The order of the above list is in amount of work for you ascending, and suggest way of getting it done descending ;)

Thanks Posde... I have absolutely no coding skills so I guess it will be just like you suggested!... and hope for the best hahahahaha... Thanks for the reply.
