Installation issues / Setting up a Hauppauge PVR USB2
« on: August 09, 2008, 11:06:52 pm »
I hooked up a Hauppauge PVR USB2 tv tuner to my hybrid system, and it did not auto-detect it. I have tried rebooting. In the setup wizard it is not listed under providers. This system has a PVR-150 installed in it currently (it was picking up interference in the case making the tv static-y). I was hoping i wouldn't have to remove the 150, because its a small case and that would be a pain, and i didn't think it would be an issue. Is the 150 interfering in some way? How do i setup the USB2? Thanks.

Installation issues / Questions about RS232 ports
« on: July 11, 2008, 03:16:57 am »
So I am looking to buy a new TV, something that will work much better with mce than my current one. I want to stay away from ir blasting, and control the TV's on/off/etc, more directly. From what I have read that means a TV with a RS232 port. I have looked around and found answers to most, but I still have 2 questions.

1) So say I have a TV with a RS232 port. How do I connect that to my computer? Are there rs232-to-usb cables or do I need a serial port on my computer? What cable to I get

2) Shopping around I have noticed the majority of TV's have usb ports instead of rs232. Will those TV's with USB instead of RS232 still work with mce when connected to my computer?

My computer is a hybrid system, as everything is in one room, and the tv I am thinging about getting is this one:
Just in case someone noticed something about it that wont work out (like the port being referred to as rs232C. No idea if that means anything). Thanks a bunch.

Installation issues / Screen getting croped

When I go to the KDE desktop the sides are trimmed off all around. Bit of the top, both sides, and bottom are cut off so that I only see part of the kicker and never the close window 'x' on window title bars.

The MCE interface is fully visible and playing media seems fine. I am hooked up to the tv via s-video and would like to have a full desktop view for web browsing/setting up torrents/games/etc. A point in the right direction would be much appreciated :)

Installation issues / Setting up ir blasting for a TV

I am a little confused about setting up my usb-uirt to control my tv. I couldn't use the section in the setup wizard because my tv (Hitachi  50ux53k) is not on the list. I am reading stuff about learning mode, and templates, but I cant figure any of it out. How do I setup a ir code template and/or test codes out? Thanks a bunch in advance.
