UNDER CONSTRUCTION more to Come including pics WORK in PROGRESS

I fell i love with linuxmce upon first glance, now im Hooked been waiting long time to get into my new place and start this wiki :).... I built my first system with 0710 few MD's to test my system in a condo i was living in while building my new house from ground up... SO I have specifically tailored my house to work with LinuxMce, Ive gone with a Central sound and video Distribution, from my media room 3 racks built into wall with its own climate control system utilization APC, rackmount environmental system... basically nothing is getting to hot...

Software Setup

Currently running Linux MCE 0810 Beta 2


House Wiring

Every room is wired with both cat 5e and cat 6e.. all runs for non Pluto devices run down to a patch panel in basement for 5e and 6e that patch panel are tied by a switch to media rack...

Every room is wired with in-wall or ceiling JBL professional grade speakers, either a room with audio only or audio and video (all speakers run back to media rack)

Every Room has a double gang with a cat 6e for wall mount orbiters under Dev by Tkmedia along with (2) powered and cat 6e double gangs for some fancy larger orbiters (touchscreen windpc) all wired back to Pluto media rack patch panels

Every Plasma location (7 total in end and 1 Projector in Home Theater room/ Media Rack Area) has (2) 6e (2) 5e and a bunch of analog cables quadshield, composite, etc for redundancy backup (ie a waste of money)

Every Plasma runs were too long from media rack to use pro grade HDMI so i setup 1 run with conduit to run whatever from projector to media rack.

Every Plasma is sent HDMI over a single Cat6e (Currently have all plasmas working 1080) Ive tried countless brands for this ive found no brand utilizing 2 cat that works well... Best ive found that works great with adjustable DDC and signal strength that truly works 200-250 foot range max off 6e is:

Atlona AT-HD-V40SRS HDMI v1.3 Over Single Cat5 Extender


My hardware is as listed below:

= i decided to go a different route instead of squeezeboxes, i built an addition (6) very lightweight MD's that will just do Audio i removed Video and TV Scenarios from them

= A/V Equipment = Denon AVR's all around for Video MD's | Sony STR DH500 for all audio zones

= Global Cache GC-100-18R a bunch some behind plasmas and 6 ports in rack
