Re: Amahi Energy Saver

I just SU'd again through SSH and I seem to be able to run the commands. I have added the network shares and have checked out the shutdown type. What do the different options do for shutdown type? there are the obvious ones, but mem, disk etc - do they just shut the disks down or something? Just try...

Re: Amahi Energy Saver

The error message doesn't harm if you are installing over an older version. Note that the diretory is /usr/share/aes rather than /usr/bin/aes. Did you install as root? Yep - installed as root (that's when you "SU" isn't it?) I found the files in 'shares' as you said... the wiki pages just...

Re: Amahi Energy Saver

Cheers - after several attempts I have managed to get the update installed. As soon as the HDA was booted, it would shut down! I had to get in to the services panel straight away to disable the service. I've installed the update via SSH from my mac - as for some reason I cannot VNC to the HDA (I'll ...

I was on a VNC connection so now cannot obviously connect! The box in the loft, so I'll have to wait until I can boot it back up tomorrow to try the o...

Re: Amahi Energy Saver

This is, to me, the most important app available! It always bothers me that my HDA is sitting in the loft humming away doing NOTHING! I installed the 3.3.2 version (I think, previous to today's upload!). My only comment would be to change the default power off time from the first install? I ran the ...

Amahi energy saver - install issues

Hi guys. I am trying to install the energy saver project as I want to give it a whirl... Yet, when I run the command to install, I get a permission denied error. Permissions are something I've been battling with since the beginning (I'm new to Linux!) I have used SU and entered the root password, bu...

Re: problems with VPN

Yep.. UDP service added and firewall rule to forward traffic on that to my 192.168.0.99 amahi machine. In the amahi.org control panel, I do the VPN check and it says it's active.

problems with VPN

Hi guys, I have had Amahi running for a while now, but today I decided to try the remote VPN feature. I have set up the router and in my amahi login (control panel) it says it's active (green light). I have downloaded the amahi VPN client (using Win XP) Yet, when I try to connect, I get a connection...

sharing USB drive on amahi machine across network

I've got my amahi machine up and running. I have a USB drive plugged in to it which is mounted. I can view the contents in /media/Elements I can see that through upnp as it's in the uShare config. BUT... I have a WDTV box which for some reason sees all my MKV files as MPG files. But that's not my is...
