<p>LinuxMCE is a single solution that consists of several pieces, and each has its own User's Manual.</p>
+
#REDIRECT [[Manual]]
<p>To get started you will want to read the documentation on [[Getting Started]]</p>
+
<p>You then control and use your LinuxMCE system with Orbiters.  Orbiters is just our way of saying "remote control".  Every media director has an on-screen Orbiter that you can use to control the system with your TV.  But you can also run the same Orbiters on touch-screen panels.  See the [[Orbiter]]</p>
+
<p>LinuxMCE is a modular system and you can add all sorts of plug-ins to do various tasks.  You will set these up using the LinuxMCE Admin web site, and on each page there is a help button that will take you directly to the documentation for that plug-in.  You can also browse the online [[LinuxMCE Home Software]] to see the User's Manuals for all the plugins.</p>

<p>If you have any questions you can visit our forums by clicking on Support / Forums, or request live assistance by choosing Live Support.</p>
