This page was written by Pluto and imported with their permission when LinuxMCE branched off in February, 2007. In general any information should apply to LinuxMCE. However, this page should be edited to reflect changes to LinuxMCE and remove old references to Pluto.
To enable the version 2 of the Orbiter User Interface (UIv2), you have to do the following:
  • Login to the LinuxMCE-admin website on your Core
  • Go to the "Orbiters" page
  • For the Orbiter where you want to use UIv2, do this:
    • In the "UI" drop-down box, select "V2 Normal Horizontal (16:9)"
    • Tick "Use alpha blended UI"
    • Tick "User OpenGL effects"
    • Click "Update"
  • Go to the "Media Directors" page, find the Media Director that runs the Orbiter you selected above and do this:
    • Change "Hardware acceleration" to opengl
    • Change "Deinterlace Quality" to "None"
    • Go to the bottom of the page and click "Update"
  • Find the Media Director again and change the resolution to a 16:9 resolution (like 720p)

After you change the resolution, the X server and Orbiter will re-start and the Orbiter will get regenerated. After this is done, you will have the Orbiter running with the new user interface.

Note about de-interlacing. It is said above that you should set it to "None" at first, but if your CPU can handle it, you can increase the settings.
