Marketplace / Re: Replacement Batteries for WebDT
« on: April 15, 2009, 10:22:57 am »

would you send them to Spain? How much would the shipping cost? I might be interested (depending on the shipping price, on the internal battery or both)

I ask for pricing to, (a web someone in this forums quoted to have webdt accesories), they told me they would send my email to the EU division, but never got an answer.


Paypal sent.

Zaragoza, Spain.

But I don't know if they have the same offers all across Europe.

Well, looks like 2 different posters with so similar nickname participate on this topic  ;)

I must say thanks to your comments I bought the b202 on mediamarkt this afternoon.

I already configured the windows xp that comes on it, and I'll try to configure linuxmce tomorrow... (thanks for the wiki link  ;))

About your post patmankn, I belive that alx9r got his b202 in Canada for 335,92 CAD, which converts to 201,68€.

As I said on my first post, I found the b202 at 199,99 € on mediamarkt.

I was yesterday at "Mediamarkt" (for those not living in europe, it's a brand selling electronic devices, music, etc...), and I saw the Asus eeebox b202 at 199€.

I thought, it was quite cheap but I decided to ask first how it runs as MD, and which resolution would you recommend.

Would you buy it, or would you wait for ION to come out?

BTW, I saw it in Zaragoza, Spain; I don't know if mediamarkt  offers are the same in every country in Europe, or even in all the shops in the same country, but maybe this helps someone thinking about buying a new md in Europe.

Count with my contribution too!

Users / Re: Wii MD

Although Wii is a nice gaming system, I don't think it has enough processor power or ram to make it a MD (correct me if I'm wrong).

Also, screen resolution is not awsome, and you can find some good looking nettops for the Wii price.

Users / Re: Webdt 366 cradle pinout
« on: March 16, 2009, 06:07:31 pm »
Thanks for your comment, yes, you are right about it, it also gives you 2 USB ports, (so from 6 to 8 pins must be for the USB from the existing 18).

In this PDF,, in page 5 it says it also has Network connectivity (I don't think it means Network using an USB network adapter).

But In my case, I just want to build a surface in which I can leave it charging, I don't find USB ports of any use as orbiter.

Any of you two have a cradle and a polimeter?


Users / Webdt 366 cradle pinout
« on: March 16, 2009, 01:19:03 pm »
As some of you, I own a Webdt 366 but I don't have a cradle, so I have to plug it directly to the AC adaptor.

I might be doing a DIY docking or charging surface for the Webdt, but I would need help from someone having a cradle and a multi-tester.

I have read somewhere that the craddle just passes voltage from the AC adaptor, so I would just need to know the correct pins to send the voltage to.

Can someone determine which pins in the cradle carry the +12v and which ones carry the GND?

marking each pin as "#", my webdt 366 looks like:

left up     ###   ###   ###   right up
left down ###   ###   ###   right down

thank you in advance.

I'd rather say that "Acer hornet" would be a great piece of hardware when it comes out.

It has an nvidia ion MoBo on it capable of running 1080p, and seems to come with an airmouse/game controller (seems to be like somekind of wiimote like controller) connected to the system via an usb dongle (so you could attach the remote to other MD in your home.

If it is integrated somehow in the LMCE compatible hardware, it would be perfect for an "out of the box MD".

Installation issues / Re: ATI Radeon HD3200 and LinuxMCE 0710/0810
« on: March 10, 2009, 12:31:40 am »
I'm sorry, I haven't tried 0810 on the laptop.

I tried to install it on an old PC I have around, and use the laptop with HD3200 as MD, but I was unable to run it smoothly, so I finally decided to wait for a beta release.

I'm using a laptop that has an HD3200 inside and Ubuntu 8.10

I have used catalyst versions 8.11, 8.12, 9.1 and 9.2.

From those, 9.1 was by far the best of them. Now I have the version 9.2 running and I'm considering to downgrade it.

I'm not at home right now I could post my xorg.conf when I get there, but I just did "/usr/bin/aticonfig --initial"

My problems with 9.2 are:
* random X restarts
* when starting new videos, sometimes the player shows a black image on the playing area, audio sounds.
* when switching to fullscreen, 50% of the times, X restarts.

It was running smooth with 9.1.

Users / Have you tried UI2 + Catalyst 9.1
« on: February 14, 2009, 08:02:12 pm »
I have a HP tx2640 laptop outside my linuxmce installation which has an ATI hd3400 card onboard.

I downloaded Catalyst 9.1 and I found a huge improvement on my system video.

Has anyone tried these with linuxmce + UI2 (w/ alpha blending)?? Do them work?

(I already know the issues relating ATI cards and linuxmce)

Thank you all.


Users / Any thoughts on these MoBo's

First of all, since this is my first post, Hello to all of you and thanks for your very useful posts.

I'm about to install my first MD, and I'm having a look at different Mother Boards for it, and I'd like to know your opinion about them, also if anyone around has tried them, and what is compatibility like.

First one is Jetway NC62K:

NVIDIA GeForce 8200 mGPU & DVI, AMD arquitecture and supports up to 2gb DDR2.
2x GBit LAN
price is 121 eur without DDR2 or Processor (just the MoBo)

Second one is Jetway J7F5M2G-VHE:

VIA UniChrome Pro II Intergrated Graphics & HDMI, VIA C7 processor at 2ghz and supports up to 1gb DDR2.
1x Gbit LAN
price is 141 eur without DDR2.

Last one is Intel DG45FC :

Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator X4500HD & HDMI & DVI, supports intel Core 2 Duo processors, supports up to 4gb DDR2.
1x Gbit LAN
price is 108 eur without DDR2 or processor.

Which one would you recomend? Do them all support UI2 with alpha bending with the appropieate drivers?
also, in those MoBos without integrated processor, which one would you recomend for a MD (if possible, I'd like to view HD video). What RAM size?

Thank you in advance.
