Title: New Version of the Dianemo iOS Orbiter
Post by: totallymaxed on May 02, 2011, 11:59:59 pm
Version 1.1 of the Dianemo iOS Orbiter has been submitted to Apple for approval and should be available from the iTunes App store shortly. See more details about v1.1 and some screen pics here;

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Dianemo_iOS_Orbiter (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Dianemo_iOS_Orbiter)

The new version supports some nice new features including a new gesture driven tab bar UI that can be shown/hidden using swipe up/down gestures when in the Orbiter view (thanks to Foxi352 for that!), an online help view, together with multiple connection profiles (thanks to Uplink for completely re-writing this part of the App) & support for auto rotation in landscape on all iOS device that support it. If you are a Dianemo user then v1.1 supports secure encrypted remote access to your NerveCentre via Dianemo's remote access portal too and allows you to swap between 'Local' & 'Remote' mode for any number of installations.

The new version is fully iOS 4.3x compatible (it requires a device running iOS 3.2 or above) and supports iPod Touch (3g & 4g), iPhone, iPad & iPad2. The App is compatible with both LinuxMCE 8.10 (and 10.04) & Dianemo 10.10 and is a free download from the iTunes App store.

Please download the v1.0 version if you have not already and you will automatically get notified when v1.1 is available.

All the best

Is the source code available yet? I'm becoming pretty decent with SDK and I think I could have a mac version done in a couple hours. I'm thinking just redefine the IB outs and write a new plist for preferences (to take over for settings) Anyway, let me know.

We do plan to release the source for the iOS Orbiter but currently there are issues related to some of the new features inside the App, some forthcoming features and also Apple's developer agreement. I expect these will get resolved but I cant give a time scale right now. The App is free and we will continue to maintain compatibility with both Dianemo and LinuxMCE releases.

As to using the iOS source as a way to deliver an MacOS Orbiter...I would say thats probably not a good approach to be frank. I would suggest you look closely at the the various Touch Orbiter implementations to get a MacOS Orbiter up and running quickly - thats the objective of the Touch Orbiter code base. See http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Touch_Orbiter_-_for_the_CUWIN3500_in-wall_Touch_Panel (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Touch_Orbiter_-_for_the_CUWIN3500_in-wall_Touch_Panel) and search the Wiki for Touch Orbiter to see the numerous implementations that are now available.

All the best

The source code of version 1.0 should be at http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac.cgi/browser/branches/LinuxMCE-0810/src/Orbiter/iOS

EDIT: Another option that might interesting for you, Tred, is to use the regular orbiter, and see if you can get that to run on MacOS

Again...I would recommend caution even with this version as Apples restrictions will still apply. We don't want to get tangled up with their legal people...

Are the Canadian app store servers buggered or something? Because I can't see the update.

Yes the 5 digit installation id is for Dianemo Systems. Can you confirm that the Web Orbiter is working correctly independently?

Andrew,

I had trouble previously getting your iOS orbiter working on my 810 install (using version 1.1), but I think the problem was on my end using the wrong device number.  I had been using the device number of my core, not of the web orbiter device (RTFM  :)).  I can confirm it works great on my iphone 3GS on a 1004 install from yesterday.  Plugged in the device number of the web orbiter and used the 7 digit installation number from the upper left hand corner of the admin pages as the installation number.

The up and down swipe to display/hide the options at the bottom is a nice addition.

Thanks-

Edit:  Note to self... one should read the rest of the manual before commenting....

Strangely enough, after successfully trying weborbiter through my browser, the iphone app works. I don't believed I changed anything... Weird.

2 Things:

- In comparison, RoamingOrb seems about twice as quick (using wifi only).
- In Dianemo app, pressing a light command, or any button that does not load a new screen, the load indicator goes on forever.

Hi huh,

Glad to hear you have a working Orbiter. I think we will need to update the setup instructions to make it much clearer what values are needed and where you get them from. Thanks for the feedback.

Good to hear its working for you now. One possibility was that you had a regen running... that would cause the Orbiter to not connect. Just and idea. With reference to the performance your seeing we are aware of a roughly 30% performance degradation in this version. This is mostly caused by the changes in the way the Orbiter communicates with the proxy_orbiter at the Core that were required for secure remote access. We are looking at the possibility of only using the original protocol for LAN operation and the new one only when you are using your Orbiter for remote access. You'll get notified when we have an update available for this on your device and in iTunes.

Re the load indicator issue - that is strange. I can't reproduce that here. If you go into Connections -> Settings and toggle the load indicator 'off' and then 'on' does that make the load indicator work normally?

All the best

Hi again,

Secure remote access is currently only available to Dianemo customers as your connection is routed via one of our remote access servers.

Your iPad Generic Proxy Orbiter should be set to a resolution of 1024x768

The most likely problem is that you have a configuration setting wrong. Double check you are using the correct device no. for your device - remember that in 1.0 we used the port no. to id a device... now we use the parent id (see my post above for a screenshot of a typical device). Also check that you have filled in all fields.

Dianemo 7.10 is not upgradable directly 'over the air' to 10.10 due to major technical changes between the two releases. We are looking at a way to upgrade existing 7.10 customers which will probably involve a hardware update - which means we will probably ship you a new system drive. Please contact Steve at the office regarding this to get the latest information.

This upgrade problem is peculiar to the transition between our 7.10 & 10.10 releases. We expect version updates to 11.04 and beyond to be available online to any 10.10 customers.

All the best

The device number is #113, the child is #115.

Hi brononi,

look at this picture: http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=11655.0;attach=2337;image. As you can see the Device Number is 105.

I am a Dianemo user and my settings are:
    * Description: ServerName - here you can use what ever you whant
    * Installation number: 114 (couldn't figure this one out, i've also tried the listen port (3463)) - in Dianemo this is a 5 Digit Number - in my case 3xxxxx
    * Device number: 114 - you can see, if you look at the picture, what the Device Number is (on my first try I used the wrong one)
    * User name: UserName in LinuxMCE - in my case this is empty because the username is for secure remote access via internet - I just whant to use the orbiter at home
    * Password: Password for user above - in my case this is empty because the password is for secure remote access via internet - I just whant to use the orbiter at home
    * Nerve Centre IP: 192.168.0.1 (IP of linuxmce) - thats OK

You should also select "Connect locally"

In settings I have set:
Wifi only - ON
Load indicator - ON
Polling frequency - every 2 seconds
Enhanced UI - ON - I do not know if this works in LinuxMCE.

when you keep in mind, that Dianemo customers have the choice to connect to their cores from remote locations using a proxy service provided by Cascade, it might make more sense.

Just to be clear our Remote Access Service is provided by CHT in fact. Cascade is a discontinued product line.

Hi,
i recently installed the Dianemo iOS Orbiter on my old 1st gen iPhone (iOS software version 3.1.3)
It installs just fine, but after i enter the connection details and hit the icon i get a black screen and it kills the app.
I know i got the right settings because these work on my other iPhone and iPad without a problem (different device numbers).
In iTunes it states iOS 3.0 or higher.
I disabled the advanced UI.

Anybody any suggestions how to get it working?

Hi,

We've not had any other reports of problems with older iOS devices under iOS 3.0 or above. Can you describe in more detail what happens? Does the App exit or are you just left with a black screen? Are you sure that you do not have another iOS device using the same Dev ID with the App running on that other device at the same time? You should make independent Orbiters for each iOS device... running two devices simultaneously on the same Dev ID can cause this kind of issue too.

All the best

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the reply,
This is what happens in detail:
- it installs perfectly
- i set the connection details (with a unique Dev ID)
- i hit save
- i hit the orbiter tab on the tabbar
- the screen goes all black
- the phone returns to its regular icon-screen
then when i want to open the app again, it gives me a black screen and returns to its regular icon screen again.

I also have RoaminOrb installed on that phone (which also not works) that uses the same proxy-orbiter.
but its not running (iirc)
could that be causing the problem?
The phone is out atm so i can't test :(

What else can i do?

Hmm... ok could you create a new proxy-orbiter etc and test against that please? If RoamingOrb also does not work then its likely not to be the App as far as I can see (our code base and RoamingOrb's are substantially different now).

Hi Raymond,

I've tested an iPod Touch running iOS 3.1.3 here with the current App and its working fine on a test system here. I also know that we have not had any other reports of issues with iOS 3.1.3 devices. So my feeling is that problem must be in your system somewhere.

Have you tested again with RoamingOrb?

Is connection trough external interface (within the external lan) expected to work for lmce - non Dianemo installations?

It appears you are attempting to connect your iOS devices via a Wifi access point on the WAN side of your Core. However the wifi access point must be on the LAN side as with all other Orbiters or MD's.

Andrew,
To clarify, I switch the iPod / iPhone to the internal network before trying to connect via the internal interface. Similarly,

This did the trick.
Not very logical to me, but it works...

thanks!!!

The Dianemo App supports remote access to your Dianemo system from anywhere you have Internet access. You choose 'Connect Remotely' when away from your house and 'Connect locally' when at home.

I would suggest that you post some screen shots (from inside Web Admin) showing the settings you have for your proxy orbiters etc. I'm thinking you must have a setting wrong somewhere.

Hi Andrew,

Here are the snapshots from the Web Admin for the relevant devices:
Device 46 – iPod Touch Orbiter
Device 47 – Generic Proxy Orbiter
Device 52 – iPhone4S
Device 53 – Generic Proxy Orbiter

p.s. The snapshots are in 4 sections. Please see the next 3 posts as well

Hi Avner,


Each of your devices 47 and 53 are both set to the same 'Listen port' 3461 - they MUST use different ports. The corresponding App on your device must also use the appropriate port number. Every Generic Proxy Orbiter must use a unique listen port number otherwise the Orbiters in question will 'fight' one another and you will get a range of different UI resolutions returned to each device... Some right but also some wrong because the device will receive responses from the wrong proxy orbiter some of the time.

Set your lister ports to different numbers and your problems will go away.

All the best

Andrew

Ok, I changed the port of device 53 to 3462 (arbitrarily) and did full regeneration and reload (is this a bug? – should an creation of orbiter allocate a unique port, or is the user responsible to do that?)
In the iPhone I can see the new skin, when connecting to device 53 via the internal interface, but the observation is the same – the iPhone connects but initially is slow to respond to touches and then stops responding.
Regarding the external connection (within the home lan but connecting to the Core’s primary IP address) - is the Dianemo app expected to connect similarly to the RoamingOrb app?

Avner
