At the moment i'm still trying to download the 1.1 Beta 2 version but for the previous beta the problems and solutions/workaround where all over the place. So maybe for this beta we can try to focus it a bit more. I think there are several people (developers and community members) trying really hard to help everyone and getting things done with limited resources... why not make things a bit easier for them by getting things focussed!

And now on to something i've been dying to get off my chest for a few days now: I'm new to OpenSource, Linux, LinuxCME and its community but i already absolutely HATE everybody ranting about that things are not working right away... I too think that the 1.x version naming might have been a bit premature,

but hey! we are getting this great piece of software for FREE!! Don't want to put some effort into it and want something that runs directly out of the box?! Go spend $200 on Vista Home Premium!! You'll never get all the options that LinuxMCE is offering.

You don't want to spend the money? You DO want all the extra goodies you'd normally pay thousands of dollars for? QUIT BITCHIN' and bare with us 'cause i'm willing to wait and spend a few hours of testing to get this baby running! Want it to work sooner? Report some bugs or help with squashing them! Know a bit more about something? help somebody out who does not! Don't want all the options and want something more or less working? Go download GeexBox, KnoppMyth or Freevo!

I believe the Dev's are working their asses off if i see what has been accomplished in such a short period of time, SO A HUGE THANK YOU to all who are making any sort of effort to try to make this project work

I've got that same issue. My monitor displays a 'signal out of range' message, but when testing the resolution from the admin panel it also displays nicely.

I keep getting an 'Out of range signal' message from my monitor in LinuxMCE 1.1 BETA. I've set it to a low 1280x1024@60Hz trough the pluto-admin > Media Directors > Resolution & Refresh , that should work.

Anyone suggestions?

@sharlee_angelo: have you got wiki edit rights? An update of the known issues in the wiki might be handy for others

I got the same issue, also a nvidea card (don't exactly know what type) with the nvidea drivers installed (as LinuxMCE suggested).
Anyone reported this problem already through the troubles form (

The Wiki and 'Install troubles' pages indicate there is a 1.1 BETA out there somewhere. Anyone knows where to download this baby for testing ?!

Same thing here, when i chose 'watch tv' from myth's menu screen goes black and i only have my mouse pointer.

I can confirm the previous post from Junni: installation with the torrent file went ok. Still quite a lot '404 file not found' on several packages but a working LinuxMCE install.

Now figuring out how the hell i got to configure it ;)
