There are 3 UI options.  UI1 is the most basic, and runs on all video cards.  However, the UI takes over the screen whenever you bring up the menu and any video that is playing gets reduced to a window.  This is the easiest UI, because the UI never covers up any of the videoUI2 is preferred because it is completely media-centric.  Your media is always full-screen and never reduced.  Even when you're not watching your own video or photos, LinuxMCE displays as gallery art the interesting photos of the day from flickr.com with smooth and subtle motion so you always have media full-screen and can leave your TV on as wall art.  UI2 is available with masking (medium), which only requires a video card with decent OpenGL and XDamage support.  The alpha blending version looks nicer, but it requires a video card that supports the composite extensions, which currently is only the nVidia 6xxx and greater.

''Main menu'' This lists all the top level options in a given room, broken down into categories: Lighting, Climate, etc.  In UI1, the blank button between the media icon and the 'TV' is your "Now Playing", which takes you to the control screen for your active media.  In UI2, the lower left button is your "Now Playing", and any options for your current media, like Audio Tracks, Subtitles, etc., show up as a sub-menu so you can do everything with only 1 screen. For UI2, use your remote control, or keyboard arrows, or mouse to select the menu pads at the bottom.  The sub menu shoots up, like an upside-down version of pull-down menus in a computer application.

Watch the new walk-through video that shows all the major features in LinuxMCE (including setup). A full list of the equipment used and a detailed installation description is included.

User Interface

The LinuxMCE on-screen Orbiter User Interface (UI) was designed to be viewed on a basic television from 10' away. There are currently three versions of the UI, and selection depends on the type of video card you have. UI1 is the most basic, and runs on all video cards. UI2 with masking will run on a majority of graphics card (with OpenGL and XDamage support), but UI2 alpha-blended is confirmed to work only with certain nVidia graphics cards. See Selecting the Right UI.

UI1 takes over the screen whenever you bring up the menu; any video that is playing is reduced to a window. In UI2 your media is always full-screen and is never reduced. (When you're not watching your own video or photos, LinuxMCE displays gallery art from Flickr or a selection of your own photos).


Main menu

The main menu lists the top level options for the room in several categories: Lighting, Media, Climate, Media, Telecom, and Security. In UI1, the first (blank) button in the Media Category is the "Now Playing" button, which brings up the menus for your active media. In UI2, the "Now Playing" button is in the lower left of the screen. Options for your current media (like Audio Tracks, Subtitles, etc.) appear as pop-up sub-menus. All options can be accessed in UI2 from a single screen. UI2 allows you to use your remote control, your keyboard arrows, or your mouse to select the pop-up menu and sub-menus.
