I have been having this same problem on only one of my MD's the other starts fine.  I have been search in the logs, but I have not found anything at this time.

I will keep you posted if I find something.


I can only talk about dansguardian.  I have used it with success under Plutohome, but I have not tried yet under LinuxMCE.  It is on my to do list as I have a 13 yo.  The only issue I can remember is that the port 8080 keep getting reassigned to Apache and  I would have to go in and manual commit out the 8080 line from /etc/apache2/ports.conf.

Please keep us informed if you attempt the samba PDC.  As for the firewall, there is a webadmin page where you can configure the firewall, I have never made any changes, but it is there.  I believe that it is under Advanced > Network tab, but I am not in front oh may machine to confirm.

What output do you get when you run the following from the commandline.

Code: [Select]
It may given some insight as to why it is failing.  Just a thought.

I had a very similar problem, but my issue was related to the fact that I had no sound card in my core.
Take a look at
This is how I was able to fix my problem


Installation issues / Re: MCEUSB2 not working when connected

I had the same problem.  You need to do a few things to get it working

Code: [Select]
apt-get install lirc-pluto pluto-lirc-wrapper
depmod -ae
modprobe lirc_mceusb2

That should fix the problem.  If this does not let me know there are a few other things that you may have to do.

I have been having problems with the LIRC Modules.  From what I can tell so far,
1. Kubuntu installs the lircd.conf file in /etc/lirc/ not /etc and the software is looking to add configuration information to a file that does not exist.  I was able to over come this by ln -s /etc/lirc/lircd.conf /etc/lircd.conf.  The interesting thing that happened though was that after a router reload /etc/lircd.conf has been overwritten, but it is no longer a symlink.

2. I had to edit /etc/lirc/hardware.conf file to reflect the driver= default and the device /dev/lirc0 ( as the defaults are not correct ie /dev/lirc or /dev/lirc/0)

Only then did the lircd restart without errors.

I have also noticed that since this recent update, The function of the remote buttons is completely different, which is probably what you are describing as emulating Keypresses.
you can try the following to see if the LIRC_DCE plugin is working.
Code: [Select]
/usr/pluto/bin/LIRC_DCE -d <device #> -r localhost Before the update, Back button while in different plugins acted as escape button and not taking you back in the orbiter. For instance, Mythtv bring up OSD, prior hitting Back would exit the OSD, now it returns you to the orbitors main screen, as if you hit Home before.  Recorded TV used to bring up Recorded TV shows with in mythtv, but now it always brings up the Video Menu.

There is table in the pluto_main called Remote Mapping which allows for remapping the button in different screens.

THis may be a place to look, but as best as I can tell the LIRC_DCE plugin is not starting properly, but I have not been able to debug it. 

I hope this is helpful,


Installation issues / Re: No media - pnp doesn't seem to work!

Pictures do not work.  This has been a issue for quite sometime with Pluto and and with LinuxMCE.  Flickr is separate and has nothing to do with the pictures.  I would try it with an audio file to see if you have everything up correctly. 


When you say did not detect it, is there no device created for the second drive?

Is it that when you put media in it is not recognized? ( if this is the case you can change to drive under advanced>configuration>devices>  select the Disc Drive and scroll to the bottom of the page and change the block device to the proper location. )  I believe that it defaults to /dev/cdrom first,  I have two drives. one is for network booting and the other is for media, I had to change the block device to /dev/dvd and it works like a charm.



Installation issues / Unable to install Pluto VideoLan Server
« on: September 11, 2007, 05:34:56 am »
My core keeps trying to install Pluto VideoLAN Server, but I do not see any package for it.  when i apt-cache search for pluto or videolan I do not see the package.  I checked to deb-cache on the 0704 CDS, and i do not see it in those packages as well.  I do however see it as still listed under src in the download able sources tar file.  Is any one else running into this problem?  It does not really seem to be hindering the performance other than I repeated see the Downloading Pluto VideoLAN Server box pop up on screen to then be followed by Problem downloading Pluto VideoLAN Server box. 

It is my understanding that this is needed to use the follow me feature, but since I do not use this feature, I may not be seeing the issue.

I have been working on trying to get my TV plug and play and the place I found the scripts are in the following location
Code: [Select]
I have modified one of the TV scripts for my TV and I am able to control the TV via the serial connection the connection keeps being disabled, so I have given up for now and I will try again later.

I hope this is what you are wanting.

Channel Up and Channel Down on the Windows MCE remotes also function as page up and page down buttons when you are in several menus and guides. 

Videos, Audio, TV guides are the three places that I know for sure you can use this function. 


yes it has fixed the asterisk issue as well.  granted it has only been a few hours, but the asterisk logs showed the no socket could be connected, and after getting the App_Server up running the logs show no errors, and the phones seem to be working although I need to do some more testing later this week.  I will update the situation and if the asterisk turns out to be a different issue i will start a new thread.



I found the answer to my own question.

Code: [Select]
modprobe snd-dummy
now it is working

Sorry for answering my own question.

I have been having some trouble with a few items on my core.  I have a hybrid installation on the following server.

It is basically under my stairs and I do not use it for media playback, although I would like to use it for ripping DVD's and CD's. Unfortunately, this is not happening and the longest time I could not figure out why, but I think I have figured out why.

The App_Server on the core is failing to start. the logs where no help as they just say.
Code: [Select]

but I typed in

/usr/pluto/bin/App_Serverwhich returned the following
Code: [Select]
App_Server, v.
Visit for source code and license information

amixer: Mixer attach default error: No such device
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

The server has no sound card and I have no additional sound cards to insert, so I was wondering if there is a way to not have the App_Server check or to trick LinuxMCE into thinking there is a sound card.  This may not be possible, and I may have to go get a card to put into the box, but I would rather not since I will never be using the box for anything which needs sound(which is why I did not get a server with sound built in).  Any help would be appreciated. 

I have also been having problems with asterisk which I believe is related.  I have to manually start Asterisk after every reload of the router.
