How can you tell which version the MVP is? 

Can you see the device in your media floorplans or are you controlling it some other way?  (Im interested in using a couple of these are they are about half the price of the squeezebox).

Ive been using an M378-EM under the 0810 alpha for a few months and it all works fine.  Just follow the wiki page and the motherboard works!

EDID hasnt helped unfortunately. 

I am trying the custom modeline pasted in place of the 1366 resolution line to see if that helps.  I know my monitor will display correctly using this custom modeline as it worked fine on my last install.

Is anyone having any luck getting this working?  I have the new AV wizard but am not getting any sound out via HDMI.

I do have nvidea 180.60 installed (checked with "sudo cat /proc/driver/nvidia/version").  

I am also running Alsa 1.0.20 installed using the ubuntuforums script (and reinstalled under this alpha version post update just in case).

I have made sure the output isnt muted under Sudo alsamixer.

Is there anything else i can try to rule out to get this audio working?

P.S I have also tried it with 185.14 driver and it is just the same.

Users / UPNP username and password on latest alpha

I have just updated my alpha install to the latest release and have now lost access to the UPNP server admin page via web admin as i dont know the login details.  I have tried the same details as my webadmin (linuxmce and kde) username and password but with no luck.  Is it a dcerouter login??

Sounds good andrew.  I have been running 180.60 and alsa 1.20 for a while but had little / no luck under mce getting HDMI audio. Out of interest how have you stopped the avwizard / mce changing the asound.conf file away from hdmi?

I am just wondering if there are enough of us out there interested in getting hdmi audio working so we can sponsor (thom probably) to get it working.  I understand that at some point this will be integrated in to 0810, but at the moment it might be a while off.

If you are interested can you add your name and how much (in $$) you would be willing to contribute;

Great thanks very much.  I will give all of the below a try and report back.

Users / Can i launch software on my n800 from within the oribter?
« on: July 19, 2009, 01:22:55 pm »
I am running canola on my n800 and would like to be able to call it to launch from within the mce orbiter (under computing).  Is there a way this can be done?  I use canola alot to play my media from the upnp server and it would be nice to have the orbiter working in this way.


I am just running through the reinstall of my Linuxmce machine after it died in a lightening storm and am having problems getting my custom modeline working.

I had overscan in KDE so tried to get the modeline i had previously working back into my system;

ModeLine "1360x768" 85.50 1360 1424 1536 1792 768 771 778 795 -HSync -VSync

(In /usr/pluto/share/Resolutions.conf. as per the wiki).

All seemed well except when i rebooted and went through the avwizard linux mce never booted up in 1360x768 (it always went back to 640x480 or similar).  

I tried setting my own xorg.conf up and neutered the avwizard as per the wiki but whenever i started my system linux mce only took up the top left hand corner of the screen (ie it was still running at the old resolution and not loading full screen).

Also what difference does the "driver" value make in the resolutions.conf file?  It seems a bit random as to which are set as via and which nvidia

I removed the neutered line from the wizard and restarted but i still have the same problem.  The avwizard accepts 720p with no problems.  

What am i doing wrong this time? (It worked fine on my last install!).

The other option is I am happy with neutered AVwizard and running my own xorg.conf but how to i tell linux mce to be full screen / use a higher resolution without the avwizard?

Any help greatly received.

Sadly restarting alsa doesnt help as predicted!

I have tried going back through the avwizard and selecting no sound but no change.  Anyone know if hdmi audio will be in the beta?
