Me TV – Ubuntu 10.04

Well, it’s YooHoo from Ubuntu again and what a journey it has been to get here! I can now say all my computers dual boot and it’s the way to go. Two dual boot Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.04 and 10.04 and one dual boots Apple and Windows 2003. I get the best of all possible worlds. I like the challenge, I like to be cross platform and I like to be able to pick the OS for what I want to do or how I feel at the time. Basically we all have different learning needs and computers are about learning. I have learnt a lot these last few hours. On 3 other computers I have installed Ubuntu dual boot with no problems. On the Dell Hybrid it has been an adventure and a half. First it decided to have an error just as the installation was about complete so 9.04 took me to a live desk top with an install icon…and it all fell apart. So I tried to install it again. My fault this time. I didn’t set the slider to give it enough space. There hasn’t been a slider before so I just forgot and it is not that noticeable when you are absorbed! I had to go into disk management in Windows and remove the mess! I reinstalled and I was happily going with 9.04 and thought I’d try my USB TV tuner . I actually installed MeTV through Terminal but it wouldn’t work. I couldn’t find the search channels file. By that time I was offered an upgrade to Karmic Koala and did that and still no TV. So then there was another upgrade to 10.04. In the meantime I was searching on the Net like mad. I tried MythTV and couldn’t get the TV going because I couldn’t really work out what to do. I couldn’t get it to search. By that time MeTV , installed in the applications this time,was having trouble demuxing or not demuxing…I didn’t even know what it meant. I had got it to find all the channels and I had got it going…but it kept hanging. So…in true Windows fashion I shut Ubuntu down and booted it up again and bingo!! My TV is going!! I have found once you get digital TV going you have to run it for a while on one channel on a computer and then it settles in. That’s just digital TV on a computer. Get a picture and run it. So, I am happy now!

This became an instant hit. I have also heard you can reboot the Mac and hold down the mouse button or trackpad key to try and eject a CD on a Mac if the eject key on the keyboard doesn’t work. I’d be wary of trying anything else suggested on the Net unless you are quite certain you can do it. Could cost you dearly. Maybe the eject CD thing on a Mac is more of a technical problem than we think and something which Apple needs to take onboard. 5.Microsoft pptPlex for PowerPoint Aagin this post is in the top 5 and still Microsoft ignores the fact we are hugely interested in htis and we could really use it in a classroom.
