I now use Minimyth with my media center (in replacement of mythbuntu with nfs boot) and it works well!!
Soundcard : TerraTec SoundSystem Aureon 5.1 PCI
I have no disk, i use pxeboot (with Minimyth ram)
I use the soundcard terratec because i need the optical out (with the motherboard lack) but i don't try to get it works...
As monitor, i use a 50" plasma monitor, with a DVI-to-HDMI cable, i only need to specify modeline in minimyth.conf and monitoraspect=16:9 in mplayer configuration (in mythtv configuration).
I use minimyth script to mount nfs share
I love minimyth because :
- boot faster than my old solution Mythbuntu
- the boot is nice
For the remote, i have a tuner card on a server (where the mythbackend runs) and i use lircd in minimyth script to connect to the lircd which runs on server
It is annoying that ASUS does not include S/PDIF connectors on the back of many motherboards. However, most of these motherboards (including the Asus M2NPV-VM) have a S/PDIF header that can use the ASUS S/PDIF module. Of course, it is annoying to pay an extra $15 to get S/PDIF output.
Is the NFS mount performed by minimyth.script the mounting of /usr/lib/codecs directory? If not, let me know so that I can see whether or not there is a way to integrate it into minimyth.conf.
It did not occur to me that people might use a remote remote. I will add support for this to minimyth.conf. Am I correct in assuming that the only parameters needed are the IP address (or DNS name) and IP port? Actually, if you provide your lircd line from your minimyth.script, I can be sure to get correct.
Ideally, people should not need to use minimyth.script. Therefore, whenever someone needs to you minimyth.script, I like to know how they are using it. That way, I can integrate the functionality into minimyth.conf when appropriate.
This is my minimyth script. For the codecs, i see that there is an option, but don't try it
lircd --driver=null --connect malcolm
mkdir -p /usr/lib/codecs
mount malcolm:/mnt/stock/video /mnt/stock/video -o nolock
mount malcolm:/mnt/stock/affiche /mnt/stock/affiche -o nolock
mount malcolm:/mnt/stock/win32codecs /usr/lib/codecs -o nolock
affiche means poster of mythvideo (need to be read/write).
/mnt/stock is for DIVX
malcolm is the server (backend)
