Hello, i want to watch my favorite local tv-channels worldwide in a private stream via www. For watching in hotels i need to connect my mobile smartphone to tv. Now i want to use my phone and wlan to control the home-pc: Switch on streaming in low resolution to wwww, switching the channels when needed, then watching the stream via smartphone and cable to the hotel-tv.

Is it possible to use LMCE for private www-streaming as is? Witch software will i need, too? Thank you.

This information needs to be much more user friendly and less geek oriented.  No slight intedned, I'm a geek too, but to popularize LinuxMCE, we will need docs that address concerns of regular users.

You should reference the hardware wiki area as that will give you the best idea. And if not that, the forums are also a usefull place to gleam information on what setups are working best for users.

Hello, i want to watch my favorite local tv-channels worldwide in a private stream via www. For watching in hotels i need to connect my mobile smartphone to tv. Now i want to use my phone and wlan to control the home-pc: Switch on streaming in low resolution to wwww, switching the channels when needed, then watching the stream via smartphone and cable to the hotel-tv.

Is it possible to use LMCE for private www-streaming as is? Witch software will i need, too? Thank you.

This information needs to be much more user friendly and less geek oriented. No slight intedned, I'm a geek too, but to popularize LinuxMCE, we will need docs that address concerns of regular users.

For instance, there is no discussion about which TV's are supported. Is an HDTV a requirement?

  • Agreed - think project should look to also cover categories and build up templates for such. Will look at developing Wiki Templates for things such as hardware items to make it easier (and more presentable) for public to browse such things.--Tomwebbnz 20:59, 2 August 2007 (MST)

Wiki licence?

Hi. I'd like to put some information from this wiki on Wikipedia. Is this wiki under the GFDL? I can't find any licensing information. McLurker 11:38, 16 August 2007 (MST)

Major redesign

I've redesigned the front page, no information is gone, just moved around some stuff. I will continue to straigthen things up and organizing, do you wanna help? Samme 03:36, 15 September 2007 (MST)

Section with icons

I've changed the support section to have some icons. Basically the idea is cribbed (in the best spirit of the free software movement!) from the MythTV wiki. Obviously, it links to the same things as we had before.

It would look a lot nicer if we had SVG/PNG support as we are currently using GIFs for these.

Capture card??

I am new to Linux MCE and I'm excited to dive in. I have a pc that I am going to use but I need a 2 port video/capture HDtv card. Can you guys give me your ideas of what you think is the best please?

User videos on main WIKI page

I have created new WIKI page as a suggestion of seeing LinuxMCE user videos: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Main_Page_with_user_videos If nobody objects to this new category I would like to enable it on main wiki page.

New Main Page icons

I have put new icons for main WIKI page, they are all in blue-black colors to be as close to LinuxMCE colours. If you have some better icons please feel free to suggest them. If nobody objects I'll put these icons as default, to see the preview look here: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Main_Page_new_icons
