Audio and Video over HDMI with Ubuntu on Dell Studio 15

If you have a notebook or pc with HDMI output and a big LCD TV with HDMI input, you might want to connect those. Unfortunately, this doesn't work out-of-the-box with the Dell Studio 15 notebook, neither with Vista nor with Ubuntu.
Now I got it working both in Vista and Ubuntu (8.10 - Intrepid Ibex).

In Vista I needed to update the AMD ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3450 driver
download Vista driver from Dell.
Then you need to configure windows to use the HDMI audio output.

Picture of Pinnacle PCTV DVB-T Stick Solo (revision 72e)
I've finally bought a DVB-T receiver. I'm going to write down my first experiences here, hoping to
give some useful information for the people who bought this stick, or are considering buying it.


Ubuntu + Elisa media center

This article describes how I installed a dedicated setupbox, based on Elisa, running on the Ubuntu Linux operating system.


Rotating and resizing pictures

My digital camera (a Canon Powershot A550) has the nice feature of saving the orientation of the picture in the EXIF information (it has a sensor to detect this at the time you take a picture). Some software, like Eye Of Gnome seems to automaticaly show the picture in the correct orientation.

gthumb has the option to rotate the images while importing, but it doesn't remove the EXIF information, so EOG rotates them again when displaying :)
