Hi All,
We had a power failure at home and my system with 810 and when the power came back and it booted back up now the LMCE software RAID is showing all the drives as removed I have tried su mdadm -D /dev/md1 and it comes back with mdadm: md device /dev/md1 does not appear to be active.

I have very limited cmd line knowledge so any help would be appreciated to see if there is anything I can try to recover the RAID and data as all our family photos are on it and I am currently building up a new QNAP NAS with RAID6 as I was advised to do

I have attached a photo from LMCE of the RAID

Kind regards

Installation issues / 1004 - QNAP NAS - AXIS CAMERA - ATOM n330i
« on: March 02, 2013, 10:12:29 am »
Hi All,
I know I am trouble for combining multiple issues in the one thread though I thought it all relates to the same thing 1004

As per tschak909 Tom's suggestion in one my previous posts to move to 1004 I bit the bullet and downloaded 1004 final and installed it on a standalone network with internet so it did not upset my existing 810 setup and below are the results and I am interested in any feedback or suggestions

 1 . After installing 1004 successfully (Great work from everyone much slicker) I moved my QNAP TS-869 over to the test environment and 1004 found it straight away so I added all the shares and made them public as they were discovered though when I click on any of them in an orbiter no files are present despite doing a resync in the media browser.

2. My AXIS IP M1011 cameras that worked under motion wrapper perfectly in 810 now do not work in 1004 despite being set up exactly the same s in 810. I even tried the Advanced IP device template though both the motion wrapper and the advanced IP gave the same result of no image

3. I had limited success with the Atom n330i as a MD whilst it now does not have the kernel panic issue it take ages to boot up. In one of the reboots it did an update of nVidia graphics by itself and now when it finally boots up as a MD it has strange coloured blocks across the was working until it did that update during one of the reboots

4. I need to use the QNAP for the future though before I move all my data off the 810 software RAID I want to make sure the QNAP works in 1004 and I have the right structure before I move the 5TB of content over to the QNAP so any help here would be much appreciated.

5. Finally if anybody can suggest how to make 810 find my QNAP as I changed it to DHCP as recommended and plugged it back into my 810 network and LMCE has yet to find it after 2 days

Hi All,
Have tried all afternoon to get an image out of an Axis M1011 IP Camera I have tried all the different suggestions from the wiki's and at one stage in the security camera page it came back with a grey screen with the time and a message that the connection to the camera had been lost though after that brief moment it now just comes back with camera screenshot not available

Any help would be much appreciated I am using 810 Final

Hi All,
Does anybody know an easy way to remove orphaned TV recordings in mythtv as I have no SQL experience and need a simple way of doing it

Any help would be really appreciated

Hi All,
Looking for some help here I have very limited experience with MYTHTV I am running the 810 RC final release which is all running very well.

I have finallly added my HD Homerun and LMCE picked it up and I was able to tune all the channels on both tuners......the question I have is I cannot get any EPG data on MYTHWEB

I am located in Melbourne and using the Digital FTA from 160km's away in Bendigo as I am located in an difficult reception area, I have spent ages on Google and the forums but I think I need a couple of pointers as I must be missing a step somewhere. Also does anybody know why everytime I choose a channel to watch and go to MYTHWEB its already recording can I stop this happening.

So if anybody can assist with how to get the EPG data working on MYTHWEB and the recording issue that would be much appreciated 

Kind regards

Installation issues / 810 update Well Done and Thank you

Hi All,
Bit the bullet last night and decided to download the final 810 release and completely re do my system with an existing software RAID array and I just want to say thanks to all the Development team and all the users that have made 810 successful as it worked out of the box so to speak.

Just have to set all my firewall rules up again as all the devices on the network changed there IP addresses which is no issue then set up the VOIP. The whole family are now happy again as our system has been out of action for well over 6 months, the only thing I had to do was set up the auto resume option in the CORE media plug in otherwise so far everything is working iPad, iPhone orbiters, MD directors etc

810 picked up the software RAID and it rebuilt itself overnight and now our 4 year old is using the Gyro remote sitting on his couch watching Thunderbirds. For now I will make my usual image back up then wait for 1004 so I can start on my Zwave and IP camera intergration.

So once again thanks to everybody fantastic work and happy new year

Kind regards

Users / How to replace a Core
« on: February 18, 2011, 12:07:08 pm »
Question for the experts
I have an existing Core/Hybrid with a software RAID and I am taking Thom C's advice and others of using a server board and building a new Core/Hybrid then moving to an external NAS rather than a software RAID. Question is after I build the new Core and set the IP address to the addresses I was using on the old core, then just change the IP address of the old core to be able to move the content from the software RAID to the external NAS before converting the old core/hybrid to another external NAS

Users / Intercom and making outside calls not working
« on: February 06, 2011, 03:25:44 am »
Currently I have a Linksys PAP2 with a POT's standard phone connected to it with a VOIP account and it is connected to Linuxmce and I can only make outside calls from the phone connected to the PAP2, the SIP account is registered in webadmin but I cant make calls from MD's or even do intercom calls between MD's. I have checked the trunks and dialing rules and all seem to be correct ........anybody have some ideas of things I should start checking as I want to install a SOLO usb MIC to be able to use it. I don't have a direct in dial number a of yet as owe use the standard POT's for incoming calls

Added to this if I try to make intercom or outside calls I get a msg on the orbiter Failed to make call: ERROR Couldn't make call from Device 68 to xxxxxxxxxxxl

Users / Creating RS232 Panasonic Plasma Device Template - confused
« on: February 04, 2011, 07:01:38 am »
If anybody has some spare time to assist me with making and understanding device templates I would be much appreciated Tschakeee2 has been really helpful on the IRC but I feel it's taking up too much valuable time, so if anybody has a couple spare hours up there sleeve and would like to help me I would be very grateful, I have some knowledge when it comes to command line and I just need to understand the concept of devices and how the structure is put together. I am great at visio so I could put together an overall diagram of the internals of Linuxmce if someone can assist with corrections along the way

Best Regards

Installation issues / Gyration Remote keys all wacky
« on: January 26, 2011, 03:32:09 am »
Thought it was worth starting a fresh post is anybody expericing or have a solution to the issue with the current snapshots screwing up the Gyration remote, just about all the keys don't work anymore.

I have modified xorg.conf with adding the following as suggested by tkmedia and TSCHAKeee2 but still no luck

          Section "ServerFlags"
      Option "AutoAddDevices" "False"

I downloaded Snapshot 23618 and changed sources.list to the the recommended and then started the install and did a update, upgrade and dist upgrade followed by a reboot then apt-get install mdadm for my existing RAID5 and rebooted. When I go and look for the RAID5 in media it's not there and with my basic knowledge I went and had a look in /proc and cannot see mdstat I assuming it is put in there by the mdadm..........any help greatly appreciated. This process worked before with the troubled 23559 snapshot
