Installation issues / Re: Phone line admin page is missing in 1004
« on: January 15, 2012, 04:42:44 am »
I took another stab at 1004 and I'm happy to say the phone line page is back. I was able to get the phone line to register. I was also able to install the phone device and get my SPA3102 to register as well. However the phone does not work. I'm not a VOIP expert, but here is my analysis.
  • Phone line registers so LMCE must be talking properly to Broadvoice
  • SPA3102 registers so it's talking to LMCE
  • The problem must be with Asterisk configuration

In 810 I could go into FreePBX and view/modify the Asterisk configuration (passwords, trunks, extension, routes, rules, patterns, etc) but FreePBX is gone now. How is Asterisk configuration viewed/modified in 1004?


Users / General NAS Questions
« on: January 11, 2012, 09:33:14 pm »
Found a Synology 207+ on Craigslist at a price I couldn't refuse. Don't know much about these, and I'm wondering what to do with it. My current system has two internal drives - 80G for LMCE, and 1.5T for media. Every movie I have is ripped to the big drive and its not yet 1/5th full, so I'm not hurting for storage space. Saving energy is important to me, and the NAS runs at about 17 watts - not bad even if I decide to leave it running 24/7. My system is starting to get enough complexity that I should think about a backup strategy. My movies are copied onto an old IDE drive, but that's the sum of my backups. The NAS is not speed demon - 3MB/s is the best file transfer I've seen, even though all the hardware is gigabit capable. Tweaking might get this to 15MB/s, but the forums say that's about as good as it gets. Here's what I'm considering.

  • Put a smallish drive in the NAS and set it to automatically backup LMCE (maybe rsync?). Then I'd continue to make manual media backups by occasionally connecting the IDE drive to the core.
  • Take the big 1.5T drive out of the core and install in the NAS. Turn on the NAS to watch movies, then turn it off. This might save energy, as well as wear/tear on the big drive. Then perhaps I could schedule it to come on by itself once a week and make a backup of LMCE (not sure if it could do this)
  • Something else I haven't thought of yet?

Any ideas are appreciated.



Remember that patience is rule number one with LMCE. If your 2-year-old is the problem, all you have to do is wait a few years. Your child will discover the opposite sex and lose interest in the cat5 cables! I'm kidding but I suspect the kid will be in college before I get Insteon to work.

I tried the "fix missing" command and not much happened so I just restarted the LinuxMCE installer. This time everything loaded and the installation completed with the message that no errors had been detected. Sarah started her intro and the wizard ran just fine. When I rebooted and went into admin, the phone line page was still missing as was freepbx. So it looks like a 1004 problem, not a download error. I'll fill out a ticket.

OK, maybe not an asterisk problem. I tried to reinstall and watch things more closely. Looks like there were download errors. If someone could help me out with the --fix missing syntax then I could investigate further.

Installation issues / [SOLVED] Phone line admin page is missing in 1004

I tried to make the move to 1004 today. Things looked like they went smoothly, but when I tried to install my VOIP line, the phone line admin page would not come up. I selected it in the left pane, but the right pane was simply a blank white slate. I remember that there were some telecom problems but I thought they were fixed.

I ripped from a CD with LinuxMCE.

Thanks for the reply, but its not an album art problem. Why does LMCE think I have 3 albums called "Rattle and Hum"? I have an album with 14 tracks by U2, and album with one track by BB King, and an album with one track by Jimmy Hendrix. My Christmas album compilations with different artists are the worst - LMCE declares a different album for each track - all with the same name and cover art.

I'll help you bump this. I just bought a 7970 and I'm wondering what steps to take. SIP or SCCP, firmware update or no?


Users / Music Album With Different Performers
« on: December 05, 2011, 04:24:25 pm »
I've been ripping some Christmas music CDs, many of which are compilations. When I sort by performer or title, I get a display of the 20 different tracks, as expected. However, when I sort by album, I still get 20 different selections instead of just the one album picture. Can anyone tell me why this happens and how to fix? I've been digging around in Media Sync and changing attributes with no luck.

I believe I have things set up correctly and working in bridge mode. My modem is performing only the modem function, and no routing functions. The router now performs the PPPoE, DHCP, NAT, and firewall functions. The configuration changes are...

Actiontec DSL Modem - Change from "PPPoE" to "RFC 1483 Transparent Bridging"
Linksys wireless router - Change from "Automatic Configuration (DHCP)" to "PPPoE" and enter username/password for the internet service provider. DHCP, NAT, and firewall are enabled by default.

I turned the LMCE firewall off to allow it to communicate with my wireless router on the external LAN. My VOIP works, as does my laptop orbiter. General download speeds are the same, but websites seem to load much quicker. Progress is good!


Users / [SOLVED] Network Configuration
« on: November 23, 2011, 01:33:34 am »
I have my network set up as shown in the picture below. I've recently expanded the capability of LMCE system by adding VOIP and a laptop orbiter. While trying to make them work correctly, I've begun to doubt that my network is correctly configured. My DSL modem (Actiontec GT701D) and router (Linksys WRT54G) are very close to their default settings - all I did was set up the DSL modem by selecting PPPoA and entering a username and password. The trouble is that these two devices duplicate many functions. In the default configuration, both are gateways, and both perform DHCP and NAT functions. Although my internet has been working, it seems I've been double natting - apparently a common amateur error. I've been trying to fix this, but no two online articles give the same advice. I've been playing with settings and breaking my system in various ways (no internet, no VOIP, unable to use the laptop orbiter, etc...)

Can anyone steer me in the right direction? It seems that the DSL modem should be my gateway and firewall, and should have NAT and DHCP disabled. The Linksys router should do NAT and DHCP, and should have the gateway and firewall disabled. Do I need to bridge the devices?

That's easier than I thought it would be! I'll give it a try.

Users / Setting Up a Wireless Orbiter and Router
« on: November 15, 2011, 10:41:00 pm »
I've got my wireless router positioned ahead of the core (on the external network). This lets me work on the core without impacting my wife's ability to use her laptop. Now I'd like to set up a wireless orbiter, and I'm wondering what to do. Three options come to mind...

1. Move the router to the internal network. When I work on the core, I'll command my wife to suck it up and get off the computer - there's ironing to be done.
2. Spend money on a second wireless router, thus delaying my retirement, further irradiating my reproductive organs, killing nearby flora, and contributing to global warming.
3. Do something clever to make the orbiter work with the router in its current location on the external network.

I'm too afraid to try option 1, would feel guilty about option 2, and I'm too ignorant about networking to know if option 3 could work. I think Alx8r got option 3 to work, but I'm not clear exactly how.

Ideas, anyone?
