Installation issues / Re: No media - pnp doesn't seem to work!
« on: September 12, 2007, 07:39:03 am »
Pictures worked fine for me... It just took a while for the updatemedia daemon to find the files and add them to the database. This is normal. Your can force it to scan a folder at any time by going to the admin site, choosing Files & Media->Media Files sync, select the folder to scan, and then click re-synchronize. I (and probably others) posted more thorough explanations of this in other posts.

The AVWizard will actually override your changes, so you will need to change things back.

The Media Director does have a text entry field for it, so you did it right; sorry I wasn't clear about that.

That wasn't the result I expected at all... it should either put it to the new resolution, fail and display nothing, or fail and revert to 640x480. It doing nothing is just really wrong...

Are you adding this to a diskless MD or your Core/Hybrid? Do you have multiple MD's? Once you regen and reboot and it reverts to 1280x1024 check the admin site again to see if LinuxMCE decided to change everything back. I noticed it has a really bad habit of doing that all over the place...

Sorry, I do want to do this and send you the log, but my core died yesterday. I'm had to re-enable one of my other routers just to get the net back up. Hopefully I'll have my core back up and running by tomorrow... of course that assumes that only the power supply died and it didn't take the motherboard with it... If I have to buy another motherboard then I'm it might take longer -- I put a lot of thought into the kind of motherboards I get.

I'm bumping this...

Has anyone else tried doing what I'm doing? At this point I'm beginning to think that the my issues have nothing to do with the non-standard resolution. It would be cool though if someone else can confirm.

It looks like you need to change the IP address values that the DHCP server assigns it's clients. 192.168.80.* is the default for the LinuxMCE install. You can adjust this and other network stuff in the admin site. Just navigate the menu to Advanced->Network->Network settings.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Single NIC installation

So once and for all ... you already have all the config options you need. Honest you really do!

This is what I meant by "it would be difficult to put that in a wizard". In order to do this completely and dummy proof it would also need to setup the external router as well as the core network config, which would change based on the external router config. Of course, if you know what you're doing or willing to read up on it (it's really not that hard) then the wizard is really unnecessary.

Users / Re: Why is my media metadata changing?!
« on: September 10, 2007, 09:30:07 am »
Everything, at least what isn't specifically recorded by MythTV, gets changed. This annoys the hell out of me too. No program should ever override user settings, EVER!!!

Yes, it's only the meta-data, but that's a lot of data. I eventually gave up trying to change the meta-data as it just gets changed back later.

Everyone that changes their meta-data and has the update media daemon running will and has noticed this. Thom isn't the first person to complain about this and I sincerely doubt he'll be the last.

What I think Zarec is saying is the two NIC installation is at the very heart of LinuxMCE. Not having LinuxMCE as the DHCP router removes more functionality then most of the users are willing to except. Your argument that LinuxMCE is supposed to scale back gracefully is flawed. Lets say you didn't have a CPU, you just couldn't run LinuxMCE. There are some components that's just required, period.

Having said that, there are ways to have a single NIC installation and still have the core be the DHCP server with another router acting as the internet gateway. If anything should go in the install, it should be that. There is really no easy way to put that in a wizard though. You could certainly try...

In the admin site does your MD list your sound card and is it set to the sound card you are using? Do you have both integrated sound on your motherboard and a sound card? If so disable the integrated sound in your motherboard's BIOS (assuming you want to use the sound card). If you want to use the integrated sound remove the sound card.

I thought that thermostat was already supported. Or at the very least one similar to it is.

Developers / Re: KDE on Diskless MD??
« on: September 10, 2007, 02:51:12 am »
Although LinuxMCE isn't built around having apps run on the core and then displayed on the thin client, this is definitely possible (original concept of X). By default everything is run on the MD with the core acting as its hard drive. KDE is one of the default suites that's installed on all MD's.

X does have built in functionality to allow you to run apps remotely. Personally, I think VNC would be a better, faster option though. It would take some extra setup and a lot of reading on X, ssh, and VNC; but you could do it.

Most of the emails I get are for feature requests.

This is just down right unacceptable. Feature requests belong in the forum, not in your inbox. We really need to do something about this ASAP as it's just counter productive... but I guess that leads us to your (and my) first priority. There still hasn't been anyone willing/able to step up to this task though. I'm just unable...

I would prioritize things just like you did... only I wouldn't have really considered the pin code thing...

It seems everyone in this thread is in violent agreement; we just don't know how to proceed.

There are many things that can cause this. In my experience, Myth is very picky about its dependencies. You are right though, the kernel would be a good place to start as most V4L problems are solved there. The next step would be to identify any (possibly deep) dependencies Myth uses that LinuxMCE overrides and builds itself instead of using the stock versions.
The integration with the mythconverg database is also causing problems. I know at one point LinuxMCE added 5 tuner cards to the database even though I had only one installed... it did remedy the situation itself though...
I should note that I'm not having any stability problems in Myth. Myth is operating just as expected for this version of LinuxMCE. Though if you see my other threads on this topic I do definitely agree that the Myth integration should be improved. It's just not as high of a priority as building the community.

Ok, it's been a while since I lasted posted on this subject. But I've recently got some time to work on it so here it goes:

I know I said I would install OS2006 to see if that helps my stability problem. Before I did that, however, I figured I'd gather some more information about what the orbiter is acutally doing as it has issues.

It can take anywhere between 3 - 20 seconds (never less) for anything to happen when you press a button on the orbiter. I ran top and noticed that maemo-launcher constantly eats up 25-50% of the CPU. I was able to get to the video screen where it listed all the videos (after waiting about 20 seconds). The video screen was very slow at operating anything. When selecting a video it completely locks up. I was running top while it was doing this and I noticed that the media player was running. Of course, that's as far as I can get as it's becomes unresponsive at that point.

That's when it's in it's "working" state. It often crashes completely and will even take xterm with it at times. One time I noticed after it completely crashed I lost net connection (ssh died and couldn't connect) even though the WLAN monitor said I was connected. Once I disconnected and reconnected I was able to ssh back into it.

I'm going to try OS2006 in a bit, but I'm going to take a break from this one for a little while.

I had most of my media detached from the core, so when I went to the video screen it would only display 2 videos. With only 2 videos being displayed the video screen came up just fine. However, the "3 button" thing still showed black and made the video choppy. After adding all the videos back the video screen displayed a black screen again.

I did notice that doing anything that causes the black screen would cause the orbiter and Xorg processes to use all CPU usage. I also attached to the orbiter screen session and I didn't see any errors when going to the video screen or pressing F6 to get the "3 button" thing to pop up.

My first guess at the cause of all this is that direct rendering was off... but glxinfo states that it's on... I also ran glxgears and it reports an FPS between 890 - 1300 with an average of about 1000. Obviously, not the best in the world, but I thought this would be sufficient.

Does anyone have any ideas or logs for me to look at?

That kind of sucks... but to answer your original question, yes. The setting can be changed in /etc/apache2/ports.conf.
