'''ISSUE:'''
 
 
mythweb white page
 
 
If you get a white page on mythweb, a possible reason is wrong settings for mysql connection.
 
 
'''Possible Fix
 
'''
 
 
Make sure you set the right mysql values in /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/mythweb.conf
 
 
  setenv db_server        "localhost"
 
  setenv db_name          "mythconverg"
 
  setenv db_login        "mythtv"
 
  setenv db_password      "PASSWORD"
 
 
=== Can't save settings ===
 
 
Maybe you can't save channel settings. This happens because of apache and suhosin settings. Check your apache log
 
 
  tail -f /var/log/apache2/error.log
 
 
If you get an error like this:
 
 
  .. PHP Warning:  Unknown: Input variables exceeded 5000. To increase the limit change max_input_vars in php.ini. in Unknown on line 0, referer: http://dcerouter/mythweb/settings/tv/channels
 
 
Increase the values in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini as follows
 
 
  max_input_vars = 15000;
 
  [suhosin]
 
  suhosin.post.max_vars = 15000
 
  suhosin.request.max_vars = 15000
 
 
The value to set depends on the number of channels listed

Hardware

  • MacMini 2010 - Model 4,1
    • Intel Core 2 Duo - 2.66GHz
    • 8GB RAM
    • S/PDIF audio
  • Teufel Concept E 300 "5.1-Set"
  • DVB-S Device: TT-Connect S2 3650CI
  • Remote: WII Mote Plus
  • External HDD (2x 2TB): ICY BOX
  • iPad2
  • iPhone 3GS
  • Cups Printer: Canon IP5300


I used Snapshot LMCE-1004-20120701130826149.iso

Let's go

  • Drop in DVD and boot from cdrom
  • in grub select "Install"
  • TAB to set boot options and add nomodeset
  • hit ENTER to run installer
  • Wait till it completely bootet…
  • Follow the nice looking installer (If you can't figure out how to do this, go home! ;-) )

Update grub to enable reboot and graphics

After install boot again from DVD

  • Drop in DVD and boot from cdrom
  • in grub select "Install"
  • TAB to set boot options and add nomodeset
  • HDD needs to be mounted and we need to change some mount points temporarily. Do following steps:
 mount HDD Kubuntu is installed on
 mount --bind /dev/ /media/YOUR-DISK/dev/
 mount --bind /proc/ /media/YOUR-DISK/proc/
 mount --bind /sys/ /media/YOUR-DISK/sys/
 chroot /media/YOUR-DISK/

edit

 nano -w /etc/default/grub

and verify that GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT contains nomodeset and reboot=pci Possibly its the best to add these values at the end

e.g.

 GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset reboot=pci"

Whats going on ..

  • nomodeset fixes black screen after boot
  • reboot=pci enables reboot, if not set it won't reboot

To apply the new settings to grub run

 update-grub
 reboot

Now you should be able to boot without getting a black screen and you are also able to reboot, but hold on for a few more minutes

auto install NVIDIA 320M

Does work now! THX L3top

Basic Steps to make it work automatically:

Check NVIDIA Card

 sudo apt-cache policy nvidia-glx-260 | grep -i Installed
 sudo lspci -nn | grep VGA
 Update pciid
 sudo update-pciids
 lspci -nn | grep VGA

Get pciid

 lspci -nn | grep -vi "non-vga" | grep "VGA" | sed 's/.*://;s/\].*//' 

add pciid in nvidia-install.sh. Add it to both lines DRIVER_260_SUPPORTED and VDPAU_REV_C_SUPPORTED

 sudo nano -w /usr/pluto/bin/nvidia-install.sh
 sudo /root/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-290.10.run --uninstall
 sudo reboot

Broadcom BCM57765 ethernet tg3-driver install

Download Driver

http://www.broadcom.com/support/license.php?file=570x/linux-3.122g.zip

Go to dir and install

 cd tg3-3.116j/
 make
 make install


Edit /etc/network/interfaces, replace address and gateway with yours

 iface eth0 inet static
     address 192.168.0.xx
     netmask 255.255.255.0
     gateway 192.168.0.xx
     pre-up sysctl -q -e -w  net.ipv6.conf.eth0.disable_ipv6=1

Restart Network

 /etc/init.d/networking restart

or (this is recommended by Shell)

 service networking stop
 service networking start
 
 reboot

NOTE: Make sure you disabled DHCP in lmce-admin web interface if you are running LMCE behind a router which is already using DHCP posde: This is only true, as long as you have a single NIC only!

Public Key Error medibuntu

By making sure that the LinuxMCE is up to date i had trouble doing „apt-get update“.

Error

 W: GPG error: http://packages.medibuntu.org lucid

Fix

 sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 2EBC26B60C5A2783


Install TT-connect 3650 S2 DVB receiver

Kernel update may harm your dvb driver!!!!

If this happend make sure you cleaned your dvb drivers:

 sudo rm -rf /lib/modules/2.6.32-41-generic/kernel/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-usb/*

S2API

 mkdir 3650
 cd 3650
 hg clone http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/s2-liplianin
 cd s2-liplianin
 make
 make install

ISSUE

 /root/3650/s2-liplianin/v4l/firedtv-1394.c:298: error: implicit declaration of function 'hpsb_unregister_protocol'
 make[3]: *** [/home/jochen/3650/s2-liplianin/v4l/firedtv-1394.o] Error 1
 make[2]: *** [_module_/home/jochen/3650/s2-liplianin/v4l] Error 2
 make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.32-33-generic'
 make[1]: *** [default] Fehler 2
 make[1]: Verlasse Verzeichnis '/root/3650/s2-liplianin/v4l'
 make: *** [all] Fehler 2

FIX

 change CONFIG_DVB_FIREDTV=m to CONFIG_DVB_FIREDTV=y

in

 ./3650/s2-liplianin/v4l/.config

Kernel versions earlier than „2.6.32-41-generic“ i used to install the dvb device like described here

Download and copy ngene to /lib/firmware (no idea if it is really needed)

 wget http://l4m-daten.de/downloads/firmware/dvb-s2/linux/all/ngene_15.fw
 cp ngene_15.fw /lib/firmware/
 wget http://l4m-daten.de/downloads/firmware/dvb-s2/linux/all/ngene_18.fw
 sudo cp ngene_18.fw /lib/firmware

http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Linux4Media_cineS2_DVB-S2_Twin_Tuner#Firmware

Set options for splitting twin tuners. If i got it right, there is some trouble with twin tuners detecting each tuner as a single device.

 options ngene one_adapter=1
 options ngene one_adapter=0

When these option are not set maybe an error occur in mythtv setting up the TV card

 reboot

Network Boot from MacMini 2006

Howto utilize your USB to PXE boot a Mac: Mac_MediaDirector

Things to come...

  • AirPlay does not work. Bugreport
  • Control my Samsung Plasma TV. 2 ways possible. Either use HDMI or Network...
  • Find a way to change the volume. Currently using S/PDIF, i guess no chance to change volume within LinuxMCE
