Users / Best way to backup/ghost a working system
« on: December 21, 2011, 07:24:51 pm »
What's the best way to backup/ghost a working system?

I have reinstalled too many time in the past couple of weeks and realize it would be much easier to restore a working system versus reinstall when I do something stupid and eff it up. What is the best way to make a restorable ghost of the image without having to reinstall a damn thing?


Users / KDE slower than a snail on MD
« on: December 20, 2011, 05:52:24 pm »
Is there anything I can do to make KDE run faster on MD's or is this just a casualty of running diskless MD? I can watch paint peel faster than thinks move in KDE.

Users / New MD acting strange 10.04
« on: November 30, 2011, 03:30:52 pm »
I bought a new zotac box for my bedroom and and went through the MD creation process. Everything is working functionality wise except when I go to Audio or Video, instead of seeing a list of my albums or movies there are 2 selections for the 3 harddrives on my core, if I choose one of those I get a list of albums or movies without any cover art. Is it possible this MD is missing a setting of some sort?

Thanks Kevin

Users / XDisplayOpen() failed
« on: November 29, 2011, 03:40:48 pm »
All of a sudden my Core/Hybrid boots up with this error message! I tried running AV Wizard but it still shows up. Anyone seen this or have any ideas how to fix it? Couldn't really see anything in the logs, but I may not have been looking in the correct logs. I believe from what I could tell this is happening in the call to or what ever gets called right after that.


P.S. Not sure if this is caused by apt-get update or not.

Users / Video intercom
« on: November 23, 2011, 03:21:17 pm »
Is it possible to hook a a few webcams used for skype up to a couple of MDs and use them as video intercoms? Or even as a baby monitor?

Users / Live Tv Menu
« on: November 21, 2011, 04:24:18 am »
Don't mean to nitpick, but the menu items for live tv have mixed case. Is this something in a table or config file? Some are capitalized and some aren't. Some are abbreviations and some aren't. I think this needs to be consistent. Maybe I'm too anal, but I think Having it all Capitalized would make the system look more professional.

Don't know who put this change in, but I like it!

Users / MPlayer
« on: November 11, 2011, 03:20:34 pm »
I did a total reinstall of 10.04 yesterday and noticed that MPlayer was not being installed on the core even though it was checked in the software section of the Media Director in the Web admin. I ended up doing an apt-get install Mplayer. Not sure if doing that would pull the needed version for LinuxMCE.

Users / MythTV version
« on: November 08, 2011, 12:44:28 am »
What version of Mythtv does 10.04 use? If it is not .24, is there anything keeping me from building my own version of .24 and using that? I need .24 for the support of the Ceton infinity capture card.

Any help is appreciated.

Please Thom don't be a hater :)

Users / MD setup fails in 10.04
« on: September 16, 2011, 04:03:33 pm »
Getting Diskless setup failed on both of my MD's in 10.04.

Is this working?

I installed 10.04 on my core.
did apt-get update /upgrade

then ran

when I boot the MD's I get "Diskless Setup Failed".

I checked fstab-diskless and it is correct.

Can I rerun or do I need to start from scratch?

Users / m2ts video in 10.04?
« on: September 08, 2011, 10:55:06 pm »
Is .m2ts video working in 10.04? In an old post I saw that Thom said it would be added back into 10.04. If it has been added back, is there any thing special needed to get this working? I have a Canon HD Video Camera that records AVCHD that I would love to watch on my system.

As always thanks!

Installation issues / No web admin on new 10.04 install[FIXED]
« on: September 08, 2011, 05:27:54 pm »
I tried to go into the web admin from my core on a new 10.04 install. Fill in the user/password and a blank screen comes up. When I hit refresh I get the drop downs but there is nothing in the left hand frame.

 I need to swap my nics and remember doing this from the web admin.

Anyone else see this? Any ideas.

Users / No Audio in Xine through HDMI
« on: August 30, 2011, 10:24:46 pm »
I have an MD running on an Zotac ZBOX. I have had it running just fine with video through HDMI and AUDIO thru fiber, but decided to eliminate some cables. I followed the instructions for adding asound.conf etc. I can hear sound though mplayer, but no go through Xine. I also do not get any output (sound,video) when sending the signal to my stereo amplifier first. Only way to get either of them is to send to straight to TV. I can see the boot sequence when going through the amp but once Linuxmce comes up I loose all video.

I can always go back to sound through fiber but that is a bit defeatist in purpose.

Any ideas?
