I have a couple of problems that I hope someone else has already solved...
First, does anyone have any idea how to get X/Myth to use all of the screen
real estate on a high defintion televsion? I recently purchased a sony
wega KD-30XS955, I would really like to be able to get the full 16:9 aspect
ratio out of it. I cannot find any resolution specs in the manual or via
the web. Anyone figured this out?
Second problem... My backend is connected to the network via a wireless
connection. The connection is too poor to use a frontend over the air. My
solution is to plug directly into the backend via a crossover cable between
the ethernet ports on the laptop and the backend. The only problem is that
by doing this, my backend will now need to work on two separate IP
addresses. The wireless card that the backend setup points to is
172.20.20.1, the 2nd network card is 192.168.1.1. When running the
frontend on a laptop (192.168.1.3) and pointing to the 2nd interface on the
backend (192.168.1.1), no program listings show up. I assume this is
because all programs are recorded under the hostname/ip address of the 1st
interface (172.20.20.1). Is there any way to get this to work? Having
dual nics on the backend?
Thanks in advance for any tips....
