The wiki said to change the user/password. How do I do that? I found the folder
but have no access to it (there is a big lock on it!!)

To open the firewall in web admin, it looks like it need a IP adress. 

Ok, time to go to bed. Pick it up later.

Please comment on this!!

Did the reboot, and clicked on TV and gets

Should I install drivers as well?

When I go into web admin - Wizard - Media Directors. Under;

PVR Capture Card
No PVR Cards

I dont see my Nexus card listed either....

I'll better read up some more inn the wiki, please post any suggestions, thanks ;)


It's /lib/firmware/... not /lib/firmaware/... pay attention to what you're doing.  :P

Ooops! that is just  :-[

Well, then I go a step further:

Need to do a reboot, I'll be back 8)

Users / Re: LMCE lockup when ripping CD -Needs to do a cold reboot!
« on: April 27, 2008, 07:07:24 pm »
Hi i have the same thing happening .but it does it all the time . some times if i boot up it freeze or if i leave it alone for a while .again no responds to keyboard or mouse the only thing you can do is a reboot.

Well I only experience lock ups while ripping CD's. LMCE is fully working on playing media, and entering inn and out of KDE etc...

I have an other problem as well now! I am loosing access to the media on a NTFS mount, where I have most of my media... But I have ordered a new HDD, that I am gone set up with linux file system, and then transfer my data over the network to my new disk. Well thats the plan anyway 8)

I will rethink the two CD install, thanks for your advise Govo :)

Thanks Andrew for your detailed replay!

But I still cant get it to work :-\

I checked that the file is in Home directory:

and the destination:

Then entered the string in the Terminal Konsol as decribed in your post. It returned No such file or directory:

An other thing I noticed is that in the folder
Code: [Select]
/lib/firmware/2.6.22-14-generic/ there are a file named dvb-ttpci-01.fw so thats the same as my file, except for missing the -2622 extension. And all the other dvb files are ending on .fw extension's.... ??? This is not logical for me :o

Am I still doing something wrong here Andrew?

Still fighting air here... :P

I am using the Hauppauge WinTV-NEXUS-S DVB Card ver 2.2. see here for wiki info;

After following this Wiki article here
In any regard, once you find and obtain the necessary firmware for your device, copy it into the appropriate hotplug directory. The location of this directory depends on your distribution, but normally it's one of these:


Because that LMCE did not recognized my card, it proberly needs a new firmware. I downloaded
from So then I wanted to take the downloaded firmware file, and place it in the /lib/firmware folder in LMCE. When I do this in KDE it gives me Access denied dialog box,,,, ???

How do I get root/access to copy files in the KDE enviroment/GUI/desktop ???

I have read a loot on this forum using sudo su in terminal window with linuxmce password, but no change. Also accessed the network with my username and password, but still no access...

Do I have to do the file transfer through the terminal window or what...!

This is bugging me now, something is kidding me :P

Please point me in the right light wave :D

Thanks for your replay totallymaxed

now you need to go into Web Admin -> Wizards -> Basic Info -> Installation and at the bottom of the page you will see 'Miscellaneous' choose 'mp3' and bit rate etc there and then click 'Save' and now your rips will be in mp3 format.

Now I get to rip some songs, and then it freezes, I still can move the cursor on the screen and flicks picture viewer still changing pictures. But no response from keyboard or mouse clicks...

LMCE 710B4

I have followed the wiki on installing lame on LMCE here

And here is a screenprint of the Terminal window, when installing LAME:


This is my first attemt to install somthing in LMCE via terminal :P

Some tipo on this pls :)

Thanks for your feedback hgait.

Think I am going for the Intel NIC and the ASUS switch ;D

Users / New hardware switch & NIC for MD network setup -any comment?
« on: April 21, 2008, 11:07:51 pm »

I have a Core/Hybrid working, and want to expand with connecting a coupe of MD's. See my Signature for spec on my Hybrid.

I see that on wiki ASUS GigaX1108N is requmented as the main switch in a LMCE setup see spec here

Also looking at Netgear GS608 (low-priced) see info here it looks like GS608 has one protcol more;
IEEE 802.1p (QoS)
Dont know if it means anything...

For the network cards I am looking on PCI-e versions(keep PCI slots for my tuners). Intel have the PRO/1000 PT Desktop Adapter, look here for info

DeZen DZ-LCE1000, PCI-Ex1, LAN Card 100/1000MBIT network card(less expencive)  see info here

For the intel NIC I see that there is a driver for Linux:
This driver is intended for 2.4.18 through 2.6.x kernels.
see here*&lang=eng&strOSs=39&submit=Go%21 if that is needed :-\

Any user comment or view points on this, will be appreciated :-*


That is not what Zaerc meant, re-read his comment.

He is not saying move your files to the core HDD, he is saying move them to the correct folder on your NTFS drive.

Have you read what is meant by - use LMCE folder structure? It means that there is a set folder structure that LMCE uses to store all its media. I won't explain why, you can find that easily enough on the wiki, except to say it allows you to transparently combine all your media from different sources in different MDs as one single simple folder structure.

LMCE 0710 can happily mount and read/write NTFS, so don't worry about that.

You will find that as you didn't already have the correct LMCE folder structure on your NTFS HDD, LMCE has now created one for you:

public/data/audio|video|documents|pictures &
user_1/data/audio|video|documents|pictures &

LMCE will only look in those last folders for its media and ignore anything else on the HDD. There are other ways of doing this in LMCE - don't use them! This is the best way of doing it.

Simply move your video files under public|video, audio files under public|audio, and so on.

Either wait for LMCE scan them itself, or manually trigger a scan in the admin console.

PS - now you have copied at least some of your media to the core HDD, they will be in the media database, and so when you move them to the correct location, you will end up with duplicate media. You need to use the admin web site, Media File Sync menu - find the ones on the core and delete them using the web site (NOT KDE) to ensure that you clean up the database at the same time.

Yeah, Aureka, Wounderbaum, tears of joy :o And he went out of the darkness and into the light :D

Thanks for good teaching Zaerc and colinjones ;)

Now I understand how LMCE is using the file structure. I see now that I have read about this in the Wike earlier, but I didn't connect the dots properly.... cause this is a new way of looking at file managing for me I guess! Thanks again for for pointing this out to me :)

By the way, think I have some other folder issue that I don't quite understand. It's presumable connected to the root access in KDE; I am not able to create folders under  root/usr(due to installing java to display the web pages properly). Neither can I store my window folder setting, after changing the layout under View Properties in Dolpin. Further I am also denied to copy files(a .jpg screenprint) from Home to a USB thumb drive. On the Properties for the USB drive, I see that Group and Others, only have Can View Content. If I try to change this to include Modify Content I get Access denied...

After searching the forum I found a topic that Zaerc wrote as an replay:
The root password is disabeled.  Use "sudo" from a normal user account to do things as root.

But I don't see if this can help me with my folders issue in KDE.... ???

Please adwise :)

In KDE I now get an error when I try to access the NTFS 500GB drive:
hal-storage-fixed-mount-all-options refused uid 1000

To get the disk to mount in KDE try: right click on the drive, select Properties -> Mounting, and uncheck "Mount as user".

Tried that but I get this message:
Mountpoint has to be below /media

Maybe a symbolic link

Could you give me som details on what a symbloic link is, please.

Ok that worket, if I copy the media files to the Core 200GB HDD /mnt/device/34/public/data/. So this is the way to go then? No chanse to get it working tru the 500GB NTFS HDD?

This mean that I should transfer all the media to the Core HDD 200GB, I must get me a bigger HDD then :o

In KDE I now get an error when I try to access the NTFS 500GB drive:
hal-storage-fixed-mount-all-options refused uid 1000

and it kind of blinks in the GUI, and after a wile it gets on again. The Green symbol is also gone :-\

And then Dolphin crashed...

Does this indicate that LMCE does not like the NTFS partitions, or do I have an more serious matter going on?

Thanks again for helping me on this, I am still a noob in handling LMCE, but I am getting there  ;)

Move your files to the appropriate lmce directories under /mnt/device/34/public/data/ (audio/video/etc.).

Thanks for your replay Zaerc, appreciate it :)

Can I do this in the KDE Desktop enviroment?
