Installation issues / USB UIRT is not installing correctly (Solved)
« on: August 28, 2009, 07:00:39 am »
I connected the USB UIRT to my MD, it recognizes it and than, nothing.........

The error I can see is:

Failed to load Pluto IRbase

The rest looks normal, as far as I know what normal is.

When I point the remote to the usb uirt it blinks, but it's not capturing the code.

I tried to connect the usb uirt to a windows box and it worked fine capturing codes.............. sooooooooooooo

Can anybody tell me what I need to do.

Krys, have you done any more testing on these boards?

Can you update the wiki if so..... (so I don't have to re-invent the wheel)

I have 2 of these Zotac's coming in this week and will try to set them up and update my findings.

yes it works great, but I already feel like i'm missing the point with not setting it up the way it NEEDS TO BE. I cannot copy stuff from my main network to the LinuxMCE network, which I don't like. And I cannot play media on my computer that is on the LinuxMCE network :-(  I can probably make it work, but it beats the purpose of the system.

After my setup and tests are over, I will switch the network and make the Core the main Gateway and DHCP handler for everything.

I have been running my Core by connecting external to my current network (internet side) and have created an additional network with AP on the internal side. This is just easier for me, because I'm still installing, rebooting, etc.. etc.. and it works just fine. This does mean you will need an additional switch/AP but those are cheap. I don't even have my core running at night at this moment, because it's not fully installed yet (still ordering hardware). I also have 2 NAS devices, so 1 on each network, this way all files we need daily are still available and I have a 1.5Tb NAS to fill up on the LinuxMCE network.
You cannot reach all the media from your workstations now, that is the drawback. And the other way, you cannot reach the info on the "workstation NAS" from the linuxMCE network (well not without fiddling).

Whenever I'm satisfied with the setup, and leave the core on 24/7, I will change my network where the Core will be the main DHCP for the whole house, that way I can also reach the Media/etc.. from my workstations.

Picture says a 1,000,000 words......

This is how I have it now, and after you live on your own, or in my case I am done setting up do it as fearingsept picture

Did some more digging and the Mini2440 looks nice! :D

I'd love to find the version with the 7" screeen available somewhere. That might be just about perfect for what I hope to do.

Where do we find details/updates on the framebuffer orbiter?  Not seeing it in the wiki.


Look on ebay for the 7" version about $149 + shipping, not too bad I think, since the 3.5" is about $109
It ships from hong kong, I normally don't like that, but it does seem to work.

Search for "S3C2440" (sorry ebay links not allowed I think)

There has been talk on the forum before about the mini2440 boards, which would be perfect for this, I'm looking for the same.

There is already a wiki started on these ARM boards

For some general info and sales in europe and asia look at the site. In the USA they are for sale at

Whenever I get to buying the rest of my orbiter stuff I will get one of these and try it, than mount it in place of all my current intercom stations and the alarm panels in the house for all "fixed" orbiter needs around the house.

Thanks for the answers and link, if the drivers are right it would make a nice "cheap" MD for older TV's with just component hookups etc..

But, I'll just spend a little more and have the MD's future proof, I am looking for at least 720p out of these boxes, I don't see the big difference between 720 and 1080 anyway. Maybe on a 65" screen, but anything below say 50" I am not going to worry about it.

Has anybody tried one of these?

If so, how did it work, I can't find any hits on this GPU on the whole site.

These are fit in what they call the fit-pc2, a very nice small PC with a nice configuration
Here is a comparison on the GPU chipsets

                                  GMA500                  GMA950
Chipset                        Intel US15W            Intel 945GSE
Clockspeed                   200 Mhz                 250 Mhz
Max Memory Band (GB/s) 4.2GB/s                 10.7GB/s
Max Shared Memory       256MB                    8-224MB
Vertex Shader Model      4.1                         2
Pixel Shade Model          4.1                         2
Pixel Pipelines                2                           4
Unified Shader Procs       4                           N/A
Hardware Vertex Shaders Yes                       No
OpenGL                         2                          1.4
Dirext X                         10.1                     9.0c
MPEG-2 Acceleration     VLD+iDCT+MC           MC
VC-1 Acceleration         VLD+iMDCT+MC+LF    N/A
AVC Acceleration         VLD+iMDCT+MC+LF     N/A

Looks like it would be "alright" if the hardware decoding is active.



Installation issues / Re: SOLVED X10 CM11A installation in 0810
« on: July 12, 2009, 05:01:46 pm »
Light work perfect now, little lag on some, but I'll install a filter/repeater since our house is on the big side with 2 busses, I think the signal just get's "lost" in all the cables and disturbances it get's in the house.

At least everything works now, so I can play with my X10 components I have laying around. Next thing to implement is to include our intercom and security system somehow and ofcourse start building my MD's.

OK after talking to the guys in #LinuxMCE I was told to put the next line in my /etc/apt/sources.list

Code: [Select]
deb intrepid  lmce-alpha-latest lmce-alpha-latest-updates
After this

Code: [Select]
apt-get update
and after this

Code: [Select]
apt-get install pluto-cm11a
Now it installed the packages correct and after a quick reload router my CM11A was registered.

Have not tested yet since I'm regenerating orbiter on my hybrid while typing this, but will report back.

This actually could have happened because I installed 0810 with the alpha7 package and not with the latest package.

LET ME BE CLEAR, this should have happened automatically when you install 0810 correctly, but wanted to show what I had to do here anyway.

Anyway it seems to be working now, big kudo's to Tchakeee and Merkur2k for helping this (still Noob) out.

Thank you for the answer,

I followed that page, but somehow the CM11A is not created. I do see it go to the internet to fetch some packages, but none that I saw are (at least to me) related to this device.

I'm trying to figure out how to just go fetch this package, get a E: Couldn't find package pluto-cm11a

OK, just to be sure my CM11A was not messed up, I installed and ran the Heyu command line utility.
It works just fine with that.

I also was recommended to try: "/usr/pluto/bin/CM11A -d XX" where the XX is the device number

This gave me: CM11A no such file or directory

I'm going to figure this out, it's probably something simple, but........ it's kicking my behind right now.


Installation issues / SOLVED X10 CM11A installation in 0810
« on: July 08, 2009, 05:23:53 pm »
Is anybody running the X10 CM11A from a regular Serial port in LinuxMCE 0810.

If so, did you have to do anything special to get it to run?

I installed mine as per Wiki, but the device will not show as Registered in the Web Admin.
I don't know if it's just not seeing the CM11A or if it is not installing the right drivers etc...
Looking for some pointers, please.... have a box full of X10 stuff and cannot use it.
I cannot find any of the logs that other people are using to trouble shoot, which I guess is an option I have not found yet.

I left the CM11A unplugged without batteries overnight, I do not even have batteries in it, since LinuxMCE doesn't use that part.

So any specifics about this device in 0810 on an onboard serial port?
How do I turn on logging to trouble shoot?

Little help please, thank you,
