Operational System

  • June 30, 2010 - Running a DVD (23110) installed beta2 system.

Core/Hybrid - Zotac IONITX-A-U Atom N330 1.6 Ghz - UI2

  • 2 GB RAM, 1GB LAN, Optical Digital Audio, VGA - 720P - VDPAU
  • Toshiba Plasma TV - 42HP86 - VGA
  • Yamaha AV Receiver - HTR-5760 - DD/DTS 5.1/PCM via S/PDIF
  • USB Bluetooth Adaptor
  • Mediagate MCE Remote - The included IR receiver is not PnP with LMCE and I havn't spent any time to try and get it to work yet. I'm using it with the USBUIRT.

MD - ASUS EeeBox B202 Atom 230 1.6 Ghz - UI1

  • 1 GB RAM, 1GB LAN, Analog Audio, VGA - 800x600
  • Powered PC Speakers
  • LCD Monitor



  • Linksys WRT350N - DD-WRT v24preSP2
    • Internet Firewall
    • Asterisk 1.4 Server - SIP line (not yet controlled by LMCE)
  • Linksys PAP2T-NA ATA
  • 2 x D-Link 8-Port Gigabit Green switches

File Server

  • QNAP-410 TurboNAS
    • Marvell 800Mhz, 256MB RAM, 2x1GB LAN
  • 4x2TB SATA HDDs - RAID5
  • Debian running apt-cacher-ng.



  • Disconnect all devices from the internal lmce network
  • Boot the Installation DVD and choose "Install LinuxMCE", follow the instructions.
  • Install apt-cacher-ng before installing LMCE from the desktop.
wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/a/apt-cacher-ng/apt-cacher-ng_0.4-1_i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i apt-cacher-ng_0.4-1_i386.deb

Update (create) /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02proxy to point to the local apt-cacher-ng. The install scripts will alter this to "http://dcerouter:3142" when it finishes. This file is also automatically copied to MDs when they are created, which is handy. All upgrades will now be cached on the dcerouter and MDs will automatically use the cache.

echo 'Acquire::http { Proxy "http://localhost:3142"; };' | sudo tee /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/02proxy

Edit /etc/apt-cacher-ng/acng.conf and set a proxy to another apt-cacher-ng repository (my QNAP NAS), if desired.

  • Continue Installing according to the DVD installation instructions for 0810 beta2, LinuxMCE-0810_beta.
  • Install libdvdcss
apt-get update
apt-get install libdvdcss2 w32codecs
  • Configure the onboard wireless as an Access Point
  • Create the initial MD images
  • Turn devices on/plug-in one by one
  2. EeeBox
  3. WebDT
  4. N800
  5. TabletPC1
  6. N900
  7. HDHomerun


  • Install libdvdcss & w32 codecs
apt-get update
apt-get install libdvdcss2 w32codecs

Outstanding Issues I need to investigate as I have time

  • Proper (complete) device templates for TV, Receiver, PS3, Wii, 9242 PVR
  • UI2 on the EeeBox is elusive**Current driver causes segfault/cifs-vfs errors
    • Updated xorg and intel driver work great but mouse and keyboard events are not picked up by orbiter.
    • This has been pushed back to 1004 release, UI2 should work ootb with 1004 intel video drivers.
