Title: Need some dedicated testers.
Post by: golgoj4 on August 12, 2013, 05:04:10 am
for QOrbiter.

To be a tester, i require that you
*Have linuxmce installed.
*Have the target hardware.
*are willing to spend some time giving feedback.

The software to be tested
*QOrbiter for Android x86 devices (all 2 of them?)
*QOrbiter for Android Tablets
*QOrbiter for Android Phones.
*QOrbiter for Kubuntu / ubuntu linux

There will be no standalone pi version as I plan to work on following phenigmas work on creating the MD.
All Android devices must be Android 3.0 or later. This even rules out my phone at the moment. The reason for this is that I cannot provide media playback to devices earlier than this...for now.

I will be asking you to test Qt4 and Qt5 variants for these platforms. The skins will be in various stages of complete, there will be tons of ui bugs. However I feel that it is at a point where it needs to start meeting real world people.

For linux machines, I would _prefer_ nvidia graphics cards or even intel. Not so much ATI but if you have ATI bring it. I have two ati boxes which are being a pain in the video acceleration department.

Lastly, this is NOT testing for putting QOrbiter as an MD.
Thanks for reading this and please only volunteer if you have the time. My main goal with this thrust is to get a more universal version on the Android market. People have very mixed results.

Thank you.

 A note about linux version. it will be in heavy flux over the next few weeks. I intend to add a setup.sh and some other things to make it smoother (especially on my bandwidth!) Right now all the skins and everything are all in one package.

*Now there is this for the setup scripts http://docs.langstonball.com/view/Setup/
*One is for preparing your core for android.
*One is for setting up qorbiter on an x86 based machine.

More coming soon as I bring other parts of the build factory online...
Good hunting :)

I would also add I would like to get a person with a MAC to generate builds for MAC as I dont have one, but I would require that you could commit to a new build every week at least.

Do Mac builds work? If they do, I can provide a builder for that, running OSX 10.6.something.

I'm interested. Have the ASUS EF201, HTC One, and HTC One X.

Gearing up to have a baby, so a little busy with "nesting" right now, but I usually have some time starting around 10:30PM EST.

Hey ....
currently my core is out of service because the power supply is broken. Will get a now one by tomorrow.

Devices i can help/test with:
- MacBook (new), Qt SDK installed (almost clean install of MacOS 10.8), should be ready for building qOrbiter on Mac
- Android Tablet - ACER Iconai A210
- Android Phone - HUAWEI U9510E

I'm glad to help, but i'm not the most skilled guy around regarding this. ;-)

Cheers,

Would love to help out. I have no children on the way (that I know of). My devices include:

HTC Desire HD - Jelly Bean 4.2.2
Advent Vega - Honeycomb 3.2
x2 Ubuntu + fluxbox machines - netbook running 11.04 (no longer supported, need upgrading) with intel graphics, desktop running 12.04 with nVidia graphics
Joggler - does that count as a x86 device?

Cheers,
Matt.

Yes. It does. The device uses EFI for its boot firmware, but it does indeed count as an x86 device.

Count me in. I have the following:

iMac x86 running 10.6.8 Snow Leopard which also dual boots to Ubuntu 13.04
Nexus 7 - Cyanogenmod 10.2
2 off market 7" android tablets running android 4.0
Desktop PC running Ubuntu 13.04, Fedora 19, and Windows 8.1 preview
Laptop PC running Windows 8
Laptop PC running Ubuntu 13.04, Mythbuntu 12.04, Fedora 19, Windows 7, WIndows 8.1 preview
10" Archos 101 multimedia tablet running android gingerbread - cyanogenmod
Fully functional ( except incoming calls on the stinking asterisk (insert swear words here) )
3 Raspberry Pi's running xboxmc, and pidora, set up with berryboot, for times I feel like a change.
1 Raspberry Pi running raspbx for pbx server (see angry outburst above  ;) )

And now I have real DSL internet, so I am no longer limited to the constraints of satellite internet bandwidth hell.

Some older version is available in the precise part of our repo for x86 and amd64. But the amd64 builds are currently broken. and it has been a while since the x86 version has been uploaded. They only get uploaded when the beta 1204 page in the wiki changes (and I become aware of that change... ;) )

Super... I haven't tried qorbiter for a while... I think the last one I downloaded was from the play store.

QorbiterQT5: On my phone (HTC one-v ICS) I tried to download and install QorbiterQT5 but when I run it there is simply a "Your appliation encountered a fatal error and cannot continue" with an OK button.
QorbiterQT4: On HTC one-v ICS: Downloaded, installed and ran (connected to my core) but functionality seemed rather limited. I'll post some details this weekend.

Will try on my cheap tablet and wife's Samsung S4 as well.

Do all the other config steps that are outlined somewhere on the wiki still apply? (skins, setting up the orbiter on the core, creating the config xml file on the device etc etc?)  If we install a new version should we update all of that / redo it at all? Does the core need an update/upgrade to get the latest stuff on its side?
What is the difference between QorbiterQT5 and QorbiterQT4... in terms of requirements? Are there any pre-requisites for QT5 that I should install to prevent the fatal error?

many thanks and sorry for the ignorance.

Is there a video or wiki page I should look at to see how it is *supposed* to work in case I report things that are just user errors?

James.

No these are good questions. Im just not a good QA guy so apologies for not making stuff clear.
*Android Setup instructions can be found here:http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Android_Orbiter
**You should always make sure the skins are up to date.
*the config.xml is created automatically (or should be!)
*You only need to do the setup once. Subsequent updates wont delete the orbiter or reset your config settings.

The difference between Qt4 and Qt5 are pretty big. From a user perspective, Qt5 is supposed to provide
*Better integration with the Android OS
*Multimedia
*Better graphics performance.
*No additional downloads / libraries (no ministro)
*limited to Android 3.0 or higher.

Qt4 is basically the 1st attempt to bring Qt (and thus QOrbiter) to Android.
*No native support for multimedia, but I am testing a path that would allow it. Api minimum level 12 however...
*Requires Ministro
*Graphics performance not as good as Qt5

Lastly, the issue with the force close may be related to the skins not being up to date. Make sure thats updated and report back when you can.

Please feel free to ask anymore questions. Im really trying to get better at this 'distributing software' thing.

I have tested the QT5 version on a Motorola Razr Maxx running android version 4.1.2.  I keep getting an error `make sure you can connect to your core` - I can open a browser and pull up my core on 192.168.80.1 from my phone...

Post by: purps on August 18, 2013, 07:45:04 pm
Have tested the QT4 and QT5 nightly builds on my HTC Desire HD (running Jelly Bean 4.2.2).

Installed and tried QT5 version first, but I also got the "make sure you can connect to your core" message. I use the Android touch orbiter as my main orbiter. Standard 192.168.80.1 internal IP address. Set up a qOrbiter on the core. Skin folder is up to date.

Then installed QT4 version, and it loads up to show the 6 buttons with the power and exit bar at the bottom. The 'Advanced' button works to show the submenu, as does the 'Power' button. No response from the other buttons.

Went back to QT5 version, but now it shuts down straight away without showing the error message from before, I assume as a result of also having the QT4 version installed (don't know if that's relevant)

Cheers,
Matt.

That sounds like it cant find the skins.
I updated the configuration process
http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Android_Orbiter#Configuration

the key bit is making them accessible via 'chmod -R 777 /var/www/lmce-admin/skins/android'

Possy is helping me make a .deb package so this is less of a pain in the .... :)

The Qt4 version is specifically targeted at versions lower than 3.0. Im in the 2.3.5 boat myself with my phone.

i may have been confusing before but

Api level 3.0 or better should use Qt5 version
Api level 3.0 and down should use the Qt4 version

This stand for tablets and phones.

Have read your previous posts, understand now that I should be testing QT5 only on this device.

This is on a phone.

To begin with, as a precaution, I removed the contents of /var/www/lmce-admin/skins folder before running "svn co http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/branches/LinuxMCE-1004/src/qOrbiter/qOrbiter_src/qml /var/www/lmce-admin/skins". Also did the chmod on /var/www/lmce-admin/skins/android.

I've uninstalled the QT4 version from my phone.

Unfortunately I'm seeing the same issue. This is the log for when I try to load it http://pastebin.com/GJ36a3Ru

Matt.

Interesting... This adds a whole other vector of device capabilities I had not thought of. Going through the logs, it throws an opengl error. And I see that its opengl-es1, not 2 as required by Qt5. But i was under the impression 3.0 going forward had gles2 available.

This phone originally had 2.2 or 2.3 installed, but I put the Jelly Bean ROM on. Could it be anything to do with that?

I will try on my tablet - however this also had 2.x installed originally, but was upgraded to Honeycomb.

New Qt5 apk is up.

-langston

A small note. The updates come in two forms. The Apk is really just an executable, and the skins are constantly updated as I work on them. So there maybe be improvements to the skins before there is an update. Once I get this thing rolling for a wider audience, we should be able to make the update process easier.

updating the ui files means doing an svn update on your /var/www/lmce-admin/skins/android directory.

Oh and I answered a previous question pretty badly.

If you have an Android device 3.0 or better, you can run both.
If you are stuck on android 2.x.x (like me and my phone) you can only run the Qt4 version.

sorry for the confusion.

Ok, here is what i did.  did a svn on my skins dir then reloaded router.  downloaded qt5 and ran it.  qt5 just closes.  downloaded qt4 and same thing happened.  then i tried deleting the previous qorbiter made reloading router, then making a new qorbiter reloading router and running qt4 again.  This time is does not just close but stays on the screen that is trying to connect to the router.   I let it try for about 10 minutes.  Now I am trying the same thing with QT5 will let you know.

Crumble - presume the wifi for your device is on the internal (lmce) network? If not, you have to change a few things to point to the IP of the dcerouter and to allow the right ports through the firewall. Sorry if this is pointing out the obvious.

i jamo.  Yes my wifi is just an ap using the lmce router at 80.1.  So fo QT5 i i did the same thing only this time i got "I'm sorry I couldn't connect to  a LinuxMCE Server at  192.168.80.1  Please ensure you can reach your core. I will continue trying.  http://192.168.80.1/lmce-admin/skins/andriod/qt5/Splash.qml

I thought the same thing jamo was saying.  So i thought hrm ill create that qt5 dir which is not in my skins dir and copy that Splash.qml file see what it does.

Then i got the same message only http://192.168.80.1/lmce-admin/skins/android/qt5/Splash.qml:4 module "QtQuick" version 1.0 is not installed

So i think it sees the router but that qt5 dir is not there and something else way over my head.  QtQuick version 1.0?  Hope that helps.

Guys, do you know how to use logcat? Try to get some logcat dumps for Langston to see!

Enable developer tools on your tablet in Settings, connect the tablet to your nearest computer, install the Android SDK, and run platform-tools/adb logcat

This will spit out all the internal foobage going on that you don't see on your tablet screen.

After reviewing the logs provided (thank you again) you guys will need to remove your skins directory (to be sure) and then re-download the skins. I apologize very much for leaving the old 1004 reference out there and confusing people.

Im working on why its not giving me the name of the device at the moment as well, but thats more a vanity thing than a useful function. The Qt/JNI code to find the storage directories is seemingly working well.

Well the older devices get hacked by users its seems, which is understandable i kept my hp ipaq longer than it should have lived. The ones that come from OEM's it seems are a different story with all sorts of engineering trickery going. I noticed that it took a nosedive at trying to instantiate the standard video player classes, which is a big clue there is something custom going on. The situation with Qt5 demands opengl due to the way that its been implemented. To use QtQuick2 you need opengl. Otherwise its QtQuick1 which means Qt4 that can run in both opengl / non opengl contexts. I would more than likely rule out any attempt at bringing video to the device as well. I really wish they would stop making these damn things. But it is a challenge with a possible solution...

Golgog4, a couple of questions-
1. Presume it can work on the external network provided the right firewall ports are open (the ones in the wiki or have these changed) and provided you specify the IP of the core in the xml file.  Is that stuff all the same as before? Same location of xml file etc?

Just to reiterate - I am testing the qt5 version (nightly build from 19 Aug) on a Motorola Razr Maxx running Android version 4.1.2 and updated the skins folder with svn revision 27885 ( I think, not at my core right now).

qorbiter connects right away and I have the menu across the top of the screen with the connected to device 139 at the bottom.  I have no graphics of any kind and the menu is not clickable.

I do not have any log files right now, I will work on that when I get off work.

Android Phone Droid Razr Maxx
Latest Skins (from trunk)
Android version 4.1.2
LinuxMCE v10.04

Loaded Ok, downloaded the new skins from the Core ok.

I like the reddish interface with the large buttons.  I very much like the smooth scrolling across senarios.
The floorplans are very small on the screen.  I still do not have an icon for the thermostat.
I know there is the 'home' button in the upper left corner, but could the device's 'back' button be mapped to not exit the app, but just go back to the home screen?

Also I have another request (which I could probably turn into a ticket if you like): Could the config file include a port field, so I could specify something other than port 80 to connect to the router?  The reason being, if I am tunneling in through an outside device into the router, I map some high non-root port number to access the box.   Mapping port 80 is a little tricky, since you need to have permissions.

I'll try and attach a screenshot.....

Interesing, as that skin is designed for a tablet. Wonder why it keeps picking up that one and not the phone one.

You can use port redirection on a router, or iptables to redirect from your high port to port 80, but that would be a security risk with no authentication.  A VPN would be more secure; that's how I use RoamingOrb on iDevices.

Hi golgoj,

I ran the script and installed qt5 on my S4.  Had the same issue where had to copy skins directory to android directory.  Then it pops up with a black screen with menu options.  The exit button works.  The User and location button bring up a green screen .  I can hit the close button and that screen will go away.  I will get you logs tomorrow.  I am still learning how the log stuff works.  Plus want to start from the beginning,  I noticed a 404 error in the script.  I would post the ip but then Thom would give me the banz.  :-p

Using the setupQorbiter script (a couple of minutes ago) I didn't even get an android folder. However once I had created one, and moved the contents of skins into it, the orbiter loads up, see attached.

Strangely, at no point was I asked to enter a device number? Is that normal? Could this be as a result of having installed the Qt4 version previously - is it remembering that setting?

He is using the qt4 version, you are using the qt5 one?

Also its becoming painfully clear that im going to have to rework my code for detecting screen sizes. It seems the phones are getting the tablet UI's as they have much larger resolutions than android did when I started :). Ahh progress...or something.

Right now there are
2) Skins for Qt4 tablet :: "Default, Smokey"
1) Skin for Qt4 Phone :: "Default"
1) Skin for Qt5 Phone :: "Default"
1) Skin for Qt5 Tablet :: "Default"

And thats just android.

on x86 there is
4) Skins for Qt4 :: "STB", "Aeon", "Default", "Noir"
1) Skin for Qt5 :: "Default"

and the rpi form factor is basically going to clone STB.

i will take a look soon at this issue with the ui's, but at the moment im working on implementing the config screen when you run the app the first time. it will allow you to set some options without needing to edit the config manually.

That's good to know, was just wondering. Yeah I've got the QT5 version on my phone.

So is the idea for detecting whether it's a phone or a tablet purely from the point of view of defaulting to an appropriate skin? And certain skins lend themselves better to certain screen sizes?

If you have an x86 machine

1) need you to post the output of
sudo find /usr/lib -name libQtCore*
2) Linux Version
3) If its fresh or upgraded version

This will help me figure out how to best target things. Basically, what im looking for is the existing qt versions on your machine.
If you dont find anything, qt may not be present, in which case, apt-get install libqt4-declarative and try again. thanks.

ex, on mine its /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libQtCore.so.4.8.1
then i can start producing builds for x86 linux targets.

raspberry pi is a known qtversion, just gotta get it back up and running!

You got it. Different screen sizes correlated to form factors when i started, and just shrinking the UI doesn't work in many cases, you have to re-lay the whole thing out. So that's why im trying to provide ui's for different form factors. not to mention the concept of rotation on the device itself and how that affects the ui. This is why you come across really small text in some places and over-sized things in others. Lucky for me, these things are all governed in one place :)

So now, another diversion to update the form factor code because its no longer engineering eyes only so to speak.

Interesting. Tell me to mind my own business, but...

In a world where resolutions on phones are getting bigger and bigger, and the phones themselves are getting bigger (these silly "phablets" for example), and then there's 7" tablets which I can barely use for anything and would clearly benefit from a 'small screen style' skin, how on Earth are you going to keep up with it?

Perhaps a skin that is too small and fiddly for a ham-fisted person with sausages for fingers to use effectively, is absolutely fine for another. Could the skin names themselves state whether they are for large screen, small screen, high res, small hands, etc etc, and then the user chooses?

Anyway, just an off the cuff thought, obviously it's entirely up to you!

Im not! Hehe. I intend to provide the user with:

*the ability to choose what form factor they prefer
*the default skin

On the splash screen. So there will be large screen ui's and small screen ui's. They can choose which set suits them the most.
Eventually it can be made to provide a wider range not dependant on the criteria i mentioned, but for now that how im going to roll. I do note that the skins now (should be updated) to represent in the description when switching what they are designed for.

At this point, in order to upgrade to qt5, is it necessary to use the SDK and compile manually, or is there an install package, or does it come with your latest nightly builds?

Also, and this will sound shitty, thank you to the jerks who write 1 star reviews because you decided to setup your linuxmce different from the way its designed to run. You are truly awesome people.

No really, I mean that. Can I get links to your work? I promise to be as fair.

That's pretty sad. Unfortunately those who are going to be downloading it from the market generally aren't going to be the ones to understand that this is undergoing testing. And they have the "power" to rate it, so if it doesn't work, bam 1 star. Why don't you take it down off the market for now? We should be using the nightly build anyway right?

Cheers,
Matt.

Golgj4 I find The work around for live testing my apps on the Android market is to prefix it with testing... Or beta or something then releasing a separate app once you get to the release stage..  Kinda ala chrome and chrome beta. That way you can minimise bad comments on the main release. On your main release you then reply to the idiots comments and tell him he didn't set it up right :-)

I guess my thinking was I didn't want to keep showing videos without having something to put in peoples hands. and the answer to most of their problems was

1) edit the config file...something we do a lot around here. haha
2) samsung galaxy III guy im guessing hit one of those problem releases before they had proper beta testing.

lesson learned and do you think i should remove it from the market? Seriously an option if the end result is a bad image for linuxmce (what I want to avoid)

also, working furiously on the floorplans and configuration file editor. will post update later

thanks for your input guys.

wget http://langstonball.com/qorbiter/setupQorbiter.sh -O /tmp/setupQorbiter.sh

i noticed the ip 192.168.80.130. Are you running the setup script on your core?

on way to test that everything updated fine is that
http://dcerouter/lmce-admin/qOrbiterGenerator.php?c=192

should give you a result like

{"device":{"device":null},"params":[{"type":"int","Command":"192","CommandParameter":"97","CommandHint":"Normally when a device is turned on all the inputs and outputs are selected automatically. If this parameter is specified, only the settings along this pipe will be set.","CommandDescription":"PK_Pipe"},{"type":"string","Command":"192","CommandParameter":"98","CommandHint":"Normally when a device is turned on the corresponding \"pipes\" are enabled by default. if this parameter is blank. If this parameter is 0, no pipes will be enabled. This can also be a comma seperated list of devices, meaning only the pipes to those devic","CommandDescription":"PK_Device_Pipes"}]}

It seems like the orbiter qorbiter generator is outdated as the app is connecting to the right place (hence the image) but the logic it communicates with it out of date.

Yesterday I received a Samsung Galaxy Tab2. Today I apt-get upgraded pluto-website-admin to the latest and greatest, and svn checkedout the android skins directory (svn co http://svn.linuxmce.org/svn/trunk/src/qOrbiter/qOrbiter_src/qml/android) into /var/www/lmce-admin/skins/android. I needed to be in the skins dir to checkout the repo path, otherwise it would fail with some obscure error message. After that I connected to http://lasmarthomes.com/qorbiter/ and clicked on the QOrbiterQt5-debug.apk. From the download list I opened the apk, and the tablet complained about some security. I enabled the installation from unknown sources (even though I do know the source ;) ), and the apk installed. Clicked on open at the end, and it connected to my core, found an existing qOrbiter device, I selected it, and Voila! saw the qOrbiter main screen.

Thank you golgoj4 for your hardwork. It worked ootb so to speak, i.e. just following the instructions splattered around in the forum and the wiki.

If you have a need for additional information, let me know.

doesnt seem like you are doing anything wrong. for some reason, its freaking out and cant set the proper height width... as a workaround you could set the device number manually in the config.xml located on your SD card to teh proper device number. Still trying to determine why THAT freaks out but the initial splash screen doesn't.

OK, so what kind of logging can I install? What do you mean? Also, I found out a problem in your script that was directly affecting me (and probably causing my problem). I must have downloaded an interim version of your setup script as it was missing the skins-common code. I deleted the skins stuff earlier and ran your setup script. No problem there, but it was not current. The new version tests for the android folder only and then skips the skins-common code. I read the script and deleted the android folder again and am now updating.

Oh, now that's different! It looks like it is working!

Yes, it is working. I've been testing it out now and it crashes when I go to the remote control. I start a song playing and it immediately crashes but the song starts. I go back in and it crashes again since it goes right back to the remote control. Stopping playback allows it to start working again.

Otherwise, so far so good...

hey everyone, i figured out where to find the logs to post for golgoj.  once you turn on dev mode for your android.  my s4 is  /storage/emulated/some number
There will be a LinuxMCE folder with a config.xml, qorbiter-command.log, qorbiter-qml.log, & qorbiter-gui.log.  if you install pastebin just hold your finger on the log and select share, then select pastebin. 

I would post mine golgoj but i can't get the skins dir to work.  so I know what my issue is.

The qt4 version came right up.  I have my res set to 1080p which makes this version too large.  Does not have the same effect on the qt5.  Qt5 looks and fits great.  Qt4 I can get to all the menus.  Playing movies did not work.  I dont have any audio to test.  Cant wait till your finished, these are gonna be great!  Only thing with qt4 it does not select the room.  The button for selecting the room is blank as well.  I set that up in webadmin so should be my family room by default.  Once the room is selected all the buttons are there.  Bit different from android orbiter.  Instead of every category I have every option like audio,video,etc.  Qt5 version is exactly like the home screen on the tv.  I will post logs in a bit.

I downloaded both QT4 and QT5 versions from your site and they both exit hard when I bring up the remote. They work just fine otherwise. Strange. The errors I've found so far are tons of undefined index errors in /var/www/lmce-admin/qOrbiterGenerator.php as well as  PHP Warning:  fclose() expects parameter 1 to be resource, string given in /var/www/lmce-admin/qOrbiterGenerator.php on line 164. Plus the following don't exist:

/var/www/lmce-admin/skins/android/tablet/smokey/qmldir
/var/www/lmce-admin/skins/android/tablet/default/screens/qmldir


No other errors were found in any other logs. :(

Also, it doesn't matter which skin I attempt to use.

Do you see any 404 errors when it runs?

what i do is
rm -rf /var/www/lmce-admin/skins/android
rm -rf /var/www/lmce-admin/skins/skins-common

rm /tmp/setupQorbiter.sh

re-run setup instructions.

For everyone who is dealing when a crash when they go to the now playing remote. Im still trying to figure out what it would be. it happens to some, but not others.

Check it out and see if there is anything there that makes sense to you. I'm perplexed. Also, can I hook up a debugger onto my phone and see where the error is occurring? If so, does it require anything special since it is QT?

you would need to install the android sdk (http://developer.android.com/sdk/installing/index.html) and run the android monitor or ddms (2 applications that it comes with)

Errors yes, crashworthy, no. This is very odd..

Ok new build for Qt4 is uploaded.
Based on the poll:
Qt5 is going to be put on the backburner for now. Its main advantage was media integration. Also, it supports less devices.
The binaries actually arent the hard part so much as maintaining the UI. A lot of screens to write and it makes more sense to get a few full ones working.

The crash error was related to time code. Latest build is up, please let me know if this fixes your crash / force quit.


Thanks

So far so good on my phone (SGH-i927).  It's showing me that my wife is watching 'PS3' right now.  When I go to the Audio datagrid it crashes before showing the list.  Video list worked, but dropped to the main menu a couple of times during scrolling.  I have > 1400 video files and even with sorting by attribute the lists can be _extremely_ long to navigate, any way to incorporate quick selects for the alphabet (A,B,etc) to jump to the first title in the list with that starting char, or am I just missing that somewhere?  My artists list for audio is >1400 too.  :)

Love the look of the video datagrid with the images in the background of the titles.  Very slick.

Hmm, trying to access audio datagrid caused a router reload that time. 
/me didn't update qml, was I supposed to?

Which skin are you using?
Title: Re: Need some dedicated testers.
Post by: golgoj4 on September 15, 2013, 02:28:37 am
Menu button brings up filtering options
Not sure why its dropping back to the screen_1
Im abusing the hell out of mine atm to try and replicate the crash.

about 2275 video files and only 473 audio performers. I switch it to title and that about 8.5 titles, but still no disconnect.

Ill keep looking and in the meantime add a prototype for the lists.

Here is a question for everyone
*The datagrid can get everything, or certain chunks at a time
*When it gets everything (its current setting) you have to wait for everything to load before you can get to the bottom.
*If I enable the paging mechanism (its already there and active) it splits things up and you can jump around by page or letter immediately.
*Some people like one free flowing grid
*Some people like expeditions navigation

Thoughts?

technically it is an option at the moment i just have to make it smooth. if you have the tablet UI going, the option to change the paging is already there in the top (updated earlier this week)

I just added a way on the phone UI to jump by letter, because Phenigma had a great point: who the heck knows whats on page 847?!

Im assuming that now its not crashing when you switch to a remote?

Both.  The entire list should be able to load (titles) quickly and easily?  Then as I scroll around, or select letters to jump around, it should load the images for the most immediate items.  Essentially, don't load things unless they are with 1 or 2  scrollable screens of the currently displayed items.  Dynamic, little waiting, less transfer required as you only grab what the user is close to.  Perhaps more difficult to implement.  Am I making any sense here?   :P   It's past my bedtime.

I think this is the same technique Androids native listview implements. The downside is that you get the scroll locking effect if assets are still loading from the core. Might be worth looking at listview to see if we can use its methodology in orbiter

Consider on old orbiter there is a set amount. 16 and 25 i believe. So it never really loaded anything close, just what is requested next. I would love to cache the different parts, but some experimentation would need to be done because while i could manage it in qt, i think you would lose the play-all feature as it relies on the last requested grid chunk (which has an associated identifier)

yessir. i wanted to see how the existing dg fit into the scheme of things.

As a side *thing* ive also been looking at how

*qorbiter could be used to bring a more robust tv channel grid to bear
*what the best way of fetching data is, and is the concept of the existing datagrids behavior something we want to keep (im not a fan of keeping). I think a new one should be made, but one that keeps the old functionality so its not a shock to the system, but provides added benefits or being targeted at a newer technology.

Title: Re: Need some dedicated testers.
Post by: golgoj4 on September 17, 2013, 01:51:58 am
its really fast. cramming it into a gui is the slow part. the only way not to freeze it is literally throttle the data. Im still looking for solutions but

On a desktop, its instant, even over the wire. But lower power devices, well, have lower power. I could take the brakes off ;)

Looking into the power crash
Security panel is non functional. i should really reconnect that.
the random capitalization's are a hold over from touch areas where hover is enabled and i was doing random things to test how well it dealt with text changes and stuff.

I was wondering..in the Advanced Menu is there a restart...or reset for Core an Md? So far the letters dont fit the buttons, so its a bit hard to read. The other thing is when browsing movies..it does take a little to populate..so I was wondering, if its due to lack of processing power perhaps of the core, since I experience severe performance hit lasting a good two hours, when starting my md.

I have 2 android phones, a Nexus 4, and a HTC Desire HD

On the Desire HD, qt4 is working and qt5 is not working. if i start qt5, i only get a black screen
I have to say, i have a custom rom on the Desire HD

On the Nexus 4, qt4 is working, but qt5 is not completly working. in qt5 none of my media gets displayed, or qt5 crashed when i press the media button. and i have some rotating issues with qt5
If i play media while the qt5 orbiter is running on my phone, qt5 crashes, and i cannot start it again until media playback has finished

I've tried several times to reinstall the skins, and running the script from langstonball.com

I love the smokey skin on my nexus!!!

For me, the media browsing is terrible on my nexus, because for every episode of a TV show i get a hit in the first screen, with just the title of the show, if i click that, it seems i get a randomly generated number, if i click that, i get into a season folder for that tv show.

I would like to see the Viewed/Unviewed options added, is this a possibility?
This would already help a lot.

imho the performance could be better, perhaps it is an option to throttle the data based on the processing speed of the device?

I found a strange feature, that if you use the back button in media browsing, it jump back to (for me) a random location

If i need to somehow make logging, or screenshots, tell me how i can make them, and i will)))

Keep up the good work!

Qt5 is going back to the barn. it seems to only work on selected devices, and this kinda annoys me

The media grid should see some evolution to being more useful in the next week.
*The numbers you see when selecting by program are the attribute numbers of the season's. I need to translate that to the actual db value.
Back button is something i should have fixed. trying to decide what it should be used for. I did many experiments on loading and its a matter of how fast the android device is. Im still researching this area but right now it runs on a loop. I throttle that loop so the gui doesnt freeze because even though the processing is happening in another thread, depending on the processor it can still slow the gui down.
Its something thats been tricky since day one since we have a more free flowing implementation as opposed to the more static legacy one.
ill see about the viewed /unviewed

Oops, i didn't... However, now i just downloaded both the qt4 apk's, but both don't start on my Nexus4, crash at startup.
I did already update the skins again... (with the script langstonball.com/qorbiter/setupQorbiter.sh)



Before i updated to apk's from the new location (docs.langstonball.com/view/Android/) i had similar issues to 'bherbie'
But i noticed it only if i was playing media, and then start qorbiter, i get an empty screen. (only the background)

On my Nexus4 this also happens, and i use the smokey skin. But when i rotate again, most of the times it comes back.

On My Desire HD i use the default skin (the only one i can choose), and the screen blacks out when i rotate, but come back fairly quickly (within 1 second). Pretty normal i think. Sometimes after rotating the buttons are displayed multiple times, the disappear after a new background has been loaded.

Another few small things that i have noticed on the Nexus with the smokey skin.

- If in portrait, the exit button is almost not visible, it falls of the edge of the screen, and only the "E" is showing.
- While in portait the photo's seem to get streched to fit in the screen
- The power button is not (yet) working
- Maybe it is because i only have 1 user defined, but if i select the user menu, i get only a blank green screen with a close button.

On my Nexus4 this also happens, and i use the smokey skin. But when i rotate again, most of the times it comes back.

On My Desire HD i use the default skin (the only one i can choose), and the screen blacks out when i rotate, but come back fairly quickly (within 1 second). Pretty normal i think. Sometimes after rotating the buttons are displayed multiple times, the disappear after a new background has been loaded.

Another few small things that i have noticed on the Nexus with the smokey skin.

- If in portrait, the exit button is almost not visible, it falls of the edge of the screen, and only the "E" is showing.
- While in portait the photo's seem to get streched to fit in the screen
- The power button is not (yet) working
- Maybe it is because i only have 1 user defined, but if i select the user menu, i get only a blank green screen with a close button.
- When i select a different room, for example, change from living room to bedroom, i tap location, i see the screen with all location, then select bedroom, then i get another screen where i can only select my bedroom.
- When selecting media, then video, it takes some time to display the "TV Shows" and "Movies" buttons (about 2 seconds), while the "Filename Sort" button is displayed instantanious.

1) Thank you for doing so much testing
2) User menu is a known issue
3) I will look into and see if I can track down the issues related to the crashes
4) Do you know about autotagger? It helps with assigning meta data to media. (ie breaking tv shows down into episode & season, setting media subtypes for movies and other video media. only for videos)
5) I will look into the weird behavior you are experiencing on the different sorting options.

what skin?

as far as the threads, well its a lot of moving parts and im still not settled on the current implementation.

Smokey mostly. It works fine sometimes but generally is very slow. It is happening right now with the latest version. It looks like it switches but forgets to do a redraw until the next background image shows up. That's been my experience and what is happening at the very moment.

Long story short, QML is essentially Javascript. which mean that the entire UI layer...is really javascript. Im just looking for people who know JS and would be willing to take a stab at helping fix minor ui bugs, etc.

Post by: tschak909 on October 18, 2013, 10:25:18 pm
If I may interject:

QML is a declarative language, first and foremost. So you specify Items, and give them properties, and react and emit signals.

e.g.

Code: [Select]
Rectangle {
    width: 400
    height: 400
    x: 4
    y: 300
    color: blue
}

in addition, you can use JavaScript, any time that an imperative section is needed (such as for a signal callback):

Code: [Select]
   onClicked: { doSomething(); }

There's more, but that should give you an idea. Plenty of example code in the qml folder for qOrbiter, as well as plenty of introductory material on the Qt site, (google can find it).

Updates for x86 and android
Added ui, functionality to select private media on x86
*need ui on android
*added experimental android media player. More of a test of other possibilities in the domain.
*changed throttling speed on android to slow down. Previous speed caused crashes on long runs. (tested with 8,687 audio titles.))


upcoming priorities
*Implement private media selection, viewed/unviewed selection.
*Implement different item views for media types (movies, music, tv shows)
*Normalize small screen, tablet UI (smokey on small screen) as much as possible.
*Add missing functionality to media screens (missing ui, backend exists) on tablet, phone UI
*implement screensaver for phone / tablet UI (onscreen elements go away _except_ for actual screens saver.)
*Fix bugs found by people.
*RPI target
*semi-related work on autotagger.
*find someone to help with screens. there are already examples for everything including dvd playback. just need UI assembly.

oh, and i may be MIA as Qt DevDays is coming up Nov 6 - 8 and ill be attending.

Downloaded new apk, and new skins, and run new setupqorbiter.sh
I noticed there are still qt5 stuff downloaded via the setupqorbiter script

few small issues...
- Start qorbiter, i get a new screen, asking for a router reload. i have this problem on all my systems. but i cannot read the text on the buttons, both buttons just say 'Reload'. i found out the left button is yes, and the right button is no
- cannot select the smokey skin, i see it, but when i want to select it, nothing happens.
- Power menu is available. but if i press the display on, or display off buttons, qorbiter crashed
- I normally do not use the default skin, but now, i notice if i play any media, on qorbiter the screen just goes blank. only the background (blue/red pixels) is there.
- Definitly notice qorbiter is slower. the datagrid loading speed is now about the same as when i previously connect over 3g with a vpn from workplace, to show my colleges my new cool toy ;)
- Dont know if this is skin related or new version related, but i have difficulties selecting rooms. it's to easy to swipe the room left and right, and then it is not possible to scroll up and down.
- In the new security panel, the pincode that you enter gets displayed. And the buttons for selecting the security mode do not work
- While browings media (video), i notice that the A-Z button do not work right from the start. you have to wait until all media is loaded. is it possible to show these schortcut letters, when media is found that start with that specific letter?

Just a short check of functions, i will report back if i find new problems, although i really not like the default skin, i will put myself through this horror ;)

looking into it. Thank you for your dilligence in testing. Posde mentioned this as well and I suspect I know the cause, but im a bit confused since you downloaded the latest.

*The Qt5 stuff is considered 'common' so its downloaded with the rest
*The datagrids are a work in progress. i have ideas across all the skins, just needs to unify them which is high on my list. Frankly its been a learning process in UX and software design going from the paradigm of the exising to Orbiter to something as dynamic as qOrbiter.

Im working on all of this stuff as fast as I can as SCALE 2014 is in Feb and I want people to think we are running XBMC. ;)

Then I get to do my LOTR schtick
"That UI was broken long ago..."
"It has been remade!"

I saw nothing that said "Audio Service Started" and I just downloaded the latest moments ago. Open-GL version posted 23 hours ago. Fully up to date with latest orbiter and setup script.

It does seem to change orientations nicely.
I cannot select a different skin.
Power button craps it out pretty badly.
Cannot show remote screen. Just goes to background. I can hit back to go back to the main screen.
Media grids load.
Many other functions seem to work.

So, going to San Francisco in a couple weeks? Sounds like fun! I'm just down the road a little from there and spent the day there during the America's Cup on one of the final days. That was fun.

Langston,

Downloaded the new APK, script, etc.
connected with the new qorbiter, i get the default skin. saw nothing about "starting audio service" selected smokey skin, saw "Starting audio service"

In the power menu, i still get crashes when selecting "Display on/off" but none when i select "Turn MD on/off"
Defintly have a more stable (and slower) datagrid. and the same speed when i sit at home via wifi, or at work, via 3g and vpn

When i press Advanced, Media test, from my work (over vpn/3g) i get media playback, and at the same time qorbiter crashes.
Tonight, i will try this via wifi.

Yeah I had to take the nasty step of forcing a repaint on rotation. Something weird going on with the qt / android integration on rotation. Forcing a screen redraw solves it, but its not instant.
Title: Re: Need some dedicated testers.
Post by: WhateverFits on October 25, 2013, 05:57:03 pm
Yeah! Skin loads appropriately now, orientation changes work correctly, audio starts streaming on button push (but it crashes the orbiter). The screen rotation works really well. Odd about having to force a redraw.

I've never had problems with a buggy data-grid so I can't test that one.

All this on Nexus 4 over WiFi.

Yeah, I've had problems where I checked in files I shouldn't or forgot to check in some I needed. I ended up putting in a continuous integration build system (CruiseControl.Net) at one of my jobs that would completely wipe out the entire source tree and check it out fresh every time just to ensure that this problem wouldn't occur past a single checkin. :)

Is there any particular area of code you need help with? Just let me know a small area I can get my feet wet in and I'll check it out.

Thanks for all the hard work!

I have the same as WhateverFits, Audio plays, but qorbiter crashes. At home, over wifi

For me the screen rotation is working perfectly, almost instant, just like other apps. This is running on my Nexus4
On my Desire HD, it's a little slow. But also about the same as other apps.

Just the redraw is not a pretty sight...

My problem was more not checking myself. I QtCreator setup so i can push right to devices, and a local jenkins instance that does the builds people download from the web (builds locally then pushes to server). I was missing one freaking manifest file that I forgot that I had pushed over.

Anyways, try not to press that button that says media test (likely going away anyhow this weekend). Going to just try and do as much as possible this weekend.

As far as stuff to do, there is tons. But the stuff that needs the most attention is the actual qml pages.

Power screen is working fine for me now. You must have fixed it by accident. ;) Looks great! I think it might even work. My boxes are a little nit-picky on WOL stuff so it is hard to test properly.

Where is the zoom & aspect in video? I don't see it.

Photo screen shows that I have 7,405,615 photos but doesn't show any. I have doubts about me actually having that many photos. I have a ton, but not that many.

I started some audio, hit "Play All" (several hundred to a few thousand songs, I didn't check). The display never showed the remote nor any feedback that it was playing. I might have hit "Play All" twice due to no feedback. Then it attempted to draw the main screen's mini status and crashed. I started it back up and it displayed just fine. At the moment of crash, it was drawing the status and I tapped on "Media" simultaneously. My guess is that it was the two events together that caused the crash.

I saw this before, just never said it here, but i like to use the "filename sort" browsing, but when i am in some folder, i cannot get back to the upper level. i just get an empty screen with only a back button, and qorbiter often crashes.

Maybe it is my setup, because i only have nfs and smb fileshares connected, and no local media on my core.

Found a bug :

While i was connected to my other wifi connection, i started qorbiter.
It couldn't connect to LMCE, which is correct, cause it is on another network.

While qorbiter is running, i changed my wifi connection to the LMCE network.
qorbiter connects, but doesn't display all the letter on the buttons,

Button's would read "L ghts" "Me  a" for the "Lights" and "Media" button, other buttons do this also
And even some buttons don't have text at all

Post by: golgoj4 on November 11, 2013, 09:51:09 am
huzzah, the eagle has landed.

Back home, nice a refreshed.

Some things...

*The way I handle QOrbiters location is changing. The reason for this is kinda long and suffice to say thanks to you guys testing this, ive gotten a lot more insight into how we move into this new area. From now on, Mobile QOrbiters will live in a new room, which will be created when you create one. This room is called Mobile QOrbiters (god how many times can i say the word Orbiter...derp!). This room will serve as the anchor point for these devices for entertainment purposes, while separating them from automatic 'media started / stopped' events connected to physical rooms in the home. I.E. no light dimming when you stream a playlist to your tablet at work, etc. I have been testing this for about 2 weeks from work and even San Fran.

*The setup script has been updated to reflect the new location (our hosting slightly shifted while i was gone) I have also employed tinyurl to try and make it easier to just type the instructions. Please note:
While it might be a huge pain, i recommend deleting any existing qorbiters, and doing a full update, including sqlcvs
I have updated the device template to try and provide better integration with existing orbiter variables and such, also added some other device data related to ui selections. Its better to be in sync than not is all i can say.
After updating, re-create the qorbiters. Like i said, i realize its a pain, but it needs to be done to make it as simple as possible. We are in new territory in many ways, so I believe caution is in order.
So, to recap, things that need to be updated on your next go-round are
            -linuxmce in general, apt-get update, sqlcvs update (i realize may be tricky for some)
            -the setup file 'setupQorbiter.sh' itself. Please use new link, it points to updated version

*Had to re-install my linuxmce system due to wanton abuse and neglect. did that today, with 1004. with an ssd and the dvd installer, was reinstalled in 45min, another hour because i didnt commit device templates. that mistake has been rectified.

*Linus may like giving NVIDIA the finger, but I also have some choice *ahem* gestures for ATI. I only mention this because I was trying to setup up a proper MD on a nettop with ati embedded graphics. 1204 and Qorbiter, it works, albeit with some nasty graphic artifacts if I get too fancy with animation. Here, as an MD on 1004, the screen saver takes over and doesnt go away..even though its actually passing button presses through. as i found out when I stopped Iron Man 2 in the other room...the guests were less than amused.

*I wont say anything about the rpi beyond im still working on it. had i not messed up my system....yeah.. anyways.

*Will be trying Qt 5.2beta this week. Hopefully some issues have been addressed. Its also the reason i keep mentioning iOS. Qt 5.2 make the first appearance of QML with iOS appstore guidelines met, and xcode integration. Needless to say, this is very good to hear, and if anyone know the cheapest route to getting a mac environment going, let me know.

*We continue to hurtle towards SCALE 2014, and my number one goal is to get an onscreen qorbiter running as an MD.

good day!

okay...I admit, I'm not sure how to do the sqlcvs...webadmin? what do I have to check- everything, or only selected items?
I downloaded the new script and so far got one thing, that seems not quite okay:

Ok, i deleted qorbiters,
Did apt-get update, upgrade
Did sqlcvs update for device templates? is it correct?

downloaded the new setupqoribter.sh
got an error, typo on line 13... 1 too many spaces... fixed that, ran the script
Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1037024:~#  sudo /tmp/./setupQorbiter.sh
/tmp/./setupQorbiter.sh: line 13: export: `=': not a valid identifier

Tried to find a new qt build, but it wasn't there. so i connect with build 76.
enter new device ID, eveything connects. Only notice that when i now start qorbiter, it starts in room ::

Will test, and report back if needed

Edit: stupid me the room problem existed because i didn't reload the router) now fixed
There is no Mobile Qorbiters room, do i have to manually add this room?

afaict, you just need to create a qOrbiter, which later should autocreate the room.

You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near ''Room' WHERE PK_Room = '7'' at line 1

Deleted the qorbiter device again
so i did a full sqlcvs update
Made a new qorbiter device, now i have a Mobile Orbiters room.

Still have the EA in the room i select in the webadmin, should this be set to Mobile Qoribters room?

This falls under my needing help from developers thread. you are correct, it should be set to unmanaged.
The idea behind the script is it takes a device number input and then
*creates the Mobile Orbiters Room if it doesnt exist (setting it to the right type as well)
*Find the name of the mobile orbiter, and uses that as the EA name.
*Performs checks and such to make sure no dupes are made, etc

Im not sure where this bit would fall in normal orbitergen.

Re:updating
========
people should just get the script mentioned in the 1st post. Its been updated to include the updated setEa2.php
sqlcvs update.
delete any old qorbiters (sorry about this again.)

One last bit to add, I installed Qt 5.2 beta. Unlike 5.1 beta, I was able to get it running on my 2.3 (api level 10) android device. I will keep testing and alert people when there is a build available.

if anyone wants to speed this along, it basically involves copying and pasting from one folder to another in this instance with some deletion of elements that are now built in as opposed to my building them by hand.

Some random feedback:
* latest build seem to crash on exit (log displays segfault)
* It would be nice to be able to force a device to use the tablet skins (ie. a table with 800x400 resolution will now use the phone skins, but I think the table skin would be more fitting)
* The floor list on the floorplan is only high enough to contain one list item. So when I have three floors, I only see the first one and have to scroll to reach the others.
* In the tablet default skin, when you are in a room without any lighting scenarios, there are no way to open the lighting floorplan.

I think i will totally reinstall my system, i keep having the weirdest problems.
Now i have 2 phones, with 2 qorbiter installs, yesterday i had 2 extra EA's, in the mobie qorbiter room, today i have 1 extra, in the default room i selected this qorbiter via the webadmin.

If i place the 2 qorbiters in the same room, and start to play media, only 1 qorbiter displays this...

Thank you Dap-P for being the sacrificial lamb of sorts. Long story short, google changed some down below in the engine room and qorbiter will crash on 4.4 devices. There is a patch in the pipe, but its not availble yet. so if you have the option to update, know that qorbiter will stop working when you do.

Sorry for the pita this causes and thanks again to Dap-P for finding out the hard way and letting others know.

new builds are up. Working on skins / Datagrids controls / navigation controls for the next few days.

still working on the correct ea setup, but the following should happen
see thread in dev section if you want to help with this. needs mysql lovin
*it creates an ea for the orbiter - this ea should be hidden if possible for to annoy people using legacy orbiters less. needs help on the hiding part.
*set the ea to the proper one, but starts it in your preferred default room.

Sounds like it cant find the skins.

1) Have you downloaded the skins to your core
2) How are you installing it?

Yes,  I have the skins installed on my core and updated them yesterday.  I used the install script from the Web Installer.  I realized that I had to run it from my home directory,  as if i wasn't in my home directory,  then it couldn't locate AudioVisual 1.0 (or something like that),  even though it was calling the full path.

1) I would run the installer again so it will update
2) You can bypass the loading screen by editing the config.xml and replacing -1 with your device number. config.xml is located in ~/QOrbiter-Dev
3) the fullscreen thing was probly a bad assumption on my part. I removed it, so when you update it shouldnt happen anymore.

Im familiar with the small black box inside of larger white box. Double check the skins on your core as i've updated a bunch of stuff since yesterday.

When I try to set options in qorbiter, it seems they  don't stick. I can put the IP ( by the way, I forgot what webport is needed), devicetype stays a 1. Anyways, when I close that window, it tries to reach the core, but it never uses the IP-Adress. Am I doing something wrong?

I tried build #101. it successfully connects, but there were some peculiar hiccups. When connecting the first time, I get to choose, which qorbiter I want to use, or create a new one. However, I got only one qorbiter, but I'm being presented with to identical entries.
At first it seemed very reluctant to do anything...pressing buttons resulted in no reaction. Also, when the router requests a reload, the buttons for "reload now" and "reload later" don't seem to work.
I ran the setup-script again, after deleting the skins on the core- and things were better. On the other hand, getting the video listing, qorbiter crashes halfway through. I also had a problem after starting qorbiter for the 4th or 5th time, the option-screen poped open, all entries gone and they wouldn't stick at all. Deleting the linuxmce folder on the sdcard helped with that.
I don't know, if its by design, or another remnant lurking in my system, but you went back to the previous design?
I'm also guessing you like to see logs and such from my phone, so here they are.

I've been having fun with the orbiters on android. Thank you for all of your hard work. I have it on three devices; My SG2, my wifes SG3 and the first edition Nexus 7. So far I'm mainly using LMCE for lighting, but soon my MD and external USB sound card (for Squeeze Slave) will arrive so I'll be able to test much more with media.

Floorplan does not fit onto the screen. This is definitely due to the size of my floorplan image. Any plans to scale or zoom in and out?

When accessing a light through the floorplan, the On and Off buttons don't work and the screen shows "PK_Pipe" and/or  "PK_Device_Pipes" inside of the pressed button. The Set Level seems to work very well but always shows at the current level of 14 regardless if the light is on or off. Is there a way to report the current level in the set level slider?

On my GS2 I'm in a style that looks different from the style on my wifes GS3 or the Nexus 7. It still has the background images but the buttons are in the middle of the screen and not along top as in the others. I go into “advanced” to change the style and clicking on the gray box for “change styles” doesn't do anything. I did notice that the style of the GS2 has more options (pending tasks, network settings, avwizard, regen all orbiters) to choose from than the style on the other devices. I also noticed that in the style that the GS2 is using,that sometimes I get in a state where I can't change rooms or choose exit.

I noticed that even when gracefully exiting from my other devices that I always get the popup “Unfortunately, qOrbiter4 has stopped”

Thank you!

I've been having fun with the orbiters on android. Thank you for all of your hard work. I have it on three devices; My SG2, my wifes SG3 and the first edition Nexus 7. So far I'm mainly using LMCE for lighting, but soon my MD and external USB sound card (for Squeeze Slave) will arrive so I'll be able to test much more with media.

Floorplan does not fit onto the screen. This is definitely due to the size of my floorplan image. Any plans to scale or zoom in and out?

When accessing a light through the floorplan, the On and Off buttons don't work and the screen shows "PK_Pipe" and/or  "PK_Device_Pipes" inside of the pressed button. The Set Level seems to work very well but always shows at the current level of 14 regardless if the light is on or off. Is there a way to report the current level in the set level slider?

*Added buttons for on / off for floorplan
*Set level is a matter of me being less lazy and retrieving the value. That whole list is dynamic madness and i need to extend it a bit more. It bothers me too and is duly noted!
*The style discrepancies are a result of me not being a designer, combined with realizing that different ui layouts worked better with different dpi devices. Im trying to rectify this to make everything follow smokey's UI scheme for consistency and my sanity. But for example, the buttons in the middle make them easier to access on a smaller phone, while a tablet has more UI real estate. Its a trade off between death by a thousand clicks or squeezing as much as possible on screen. *There are a lot of UI ideas ive not even touched on between the c++, platform porting, etc*
*It crashing on exit seems to be my curse. heh. if it doesn't bug you too much im going to keep it low priority to ui and runtime functionality.

Thanks for testing, sorry for the headaches, and thanks again for being patient while i try and bring this thing to heel.

Yes, It says "Parse error" and then "There is a problem parsing the package". It's the original Samsung T959 running un-rooted Android 2.2. It's an old phone. Would be nice to use, but not necessary.

Would using a custom ROM with a newer Android OS be a good or bad idea?

Well, 2.2 is going to be a problem. Minimum support for QOrbiter is 2.3. There is a non opengl build for older devices, but its not been tested.

Looks like I'll be upgrading then. 2.2 is the highest official version supported. Is there anything that I should look out for when doing a custom build? It looks like CyanogenMod is a popular choice.

I've run loads of custom ROMs. Some are good, some are bad. Get an old/and or small SD card, backup your current ROM, and then try a couple out. I have no experience of your phone, but on many it's very straight forward to install them. You need to do you research though, just to make sure there's nothing involved that could potentially brick it.

I've recently moved to a CyanogenMod ROM and I really like it. It's not the "official" version as that one was too old (I wanted Jelly Bean), but it is a "stable" version and I've not had any problems. I think it's a safe option. In the past I have used ROMs based on CM, and others that are nothing to do with it, all with vary degrees of success. Have a play.

This would be a good place to start http://alchemistar.blogspot.co.uk/2010/11/samsung-vibrant-custom-rom-list-1110.html

So to be clear
QOrbiter crashes on your device when:
*You click video
and then it
*Goes to a certain amount of media and then crashes?
*Crashes immediately?

I ran into something similar yesterday - can you check the file permissions of the LinuxMCE directory under SDCard, where the config file is stored if it is
Code: [Select]
d--------- LinuxMCE then qOrbiter cannot access the xml config file.

I reverted back to the previous version so I could watch some videos last night. I'll try the newer version if I can tonight when I get home from work.

So like, what are people's biggest gripes / complaints at this point?

its tooooooo silent!

I have been:
Working on the disconnection / Reconnection code / Quick Reload code - all platforms
Working on Live Tv screen for small UI (phones)
Working on Qt5 STB skin which applies to RPI, OS X, Qt5 in general - keyboard handling
tons of other smallish things i dont remember.
Security screen for tablet / phone

Ok, since you are asking :
Booting/ shutting down md
Switching tv-channels..perhaps I'm doing something wrong?
My latest toy..IP camera. The old orbiters on Windows handles it nicely
Buttons for power need adjustment (display on, display off...I guess)
Handling for skin-updates...would it be possible, that for example qorbiter checks upon startup, if skins need an update and performs it, if needed?....I know I'm a spoiled brat...

If something else comes to mind, I'll let you know :-)

Booting / Shutting off MD. Do you mean the buttons?

Ip camera  - what specifically is going wrong? I will take a look as my latest pass on that screen wasnt exactly...detailed shall we say :)

Noted on power buttons

Not without doing some nasty things that probably shouldn't be done. ill try to see if there is a better way for updates to be initiated from the application.

Thanks as always for the feedback and testing.

So far:
- qt5 version crashes after the loading screen, does not work on my android tablets
- qt4 version runs ok with some issues:
-> conrolling tv ends in endless loop on the md (vdr). The vdr on the md tries to switch channels continously beginning with channel no. 1. Only after a complete restart of the md my vdr is controllable again.
-> no floorplans
-> the description of media files is too big (font size)
-> accesss to the media files is very slow
-> where are the scenarios (sleeping, lighting, security)?
-> only two working skins

I dont have vdr, but I will take a look and see what could be causing the issue. i dont send anything in a loop, so thats very interesting.

What device (s) are you using? i cant really diagnose without knowing that. Also, are you sure you are up to date? Maverick recently had an issue that sounds similar.

I will question the 'access to media files is very slow'. On my work machine 40 miles away, its pretty fast. Would you say its slower than the onscreen orbiter? How is your wifi?

Technically there are 0 working skins because none are complete. Ive done the hard work of implementing the interface, care to join in on the "easy" part of the UI?  ;D

Scenarios. On the tablet form factor, there is a row at the top that says lights, media, etc. On the phone screen its right in front. Is the device set to a be in a room?

Floorplans. Press and hold the scenario buttons.

Phone : http://imgur.com/wwPk1t9

Tablet : http://imgur.com/45JM97p

Lastly, I recommend using the Smokey skin on android tablets. ill be changing it to the default skin soon.

I tried downloading from here  http://langstonball.com/linuxmce/item/15-qorbiter-downloads (http://langstonball.com/linuxmce/item/15-qorbiter-downloads), which was unsuccessful.
By the way, if that is going to be your primary download-site, could you perhaps edit your first post in the thread? It would make it easier to find. In addition to that, could you also provide a link for the qt5 variant, unless you have reason not to do this at this time.
As for the qorbiter, when selecting a movie for playback, I get only a fileid displayed, instead of movie details....or this this skinning issue?

Anyways, thanks for the opportunity to test your software..always a pleasure.

What is the correct way to change skin?

I just tried running http://deb.linuxmce.org/QOrbiter-release.apk on a xiaomi mi3 and on a nexus 7 and both give me a skin with what looks a bit to a stone background and overlapping fonts. When I try to create a new orbiter on the mi3 I cannot select the go button because the button to set the general settings overlaps it.

With all the positive comments I saw I must be doing something wrong ;-).

on that main home screen
Choose advanced in from the bottom menu
On the second row, to the far right, press 'Change Styles' *might need to press twice...long story
Scroll to the bottom. Do _not_ choose Data.
Choose smokey
Things should work better for you.

So finally I am back on board with some time to test this...

Just gave QT4 a whirl on my HTC One
  • Tablet UI seems to load. This was happening before and I think you said it was due to the high resolution detected which qOrbiter assumes means you are using a tablet. Is there a way I can force phone skin to load?
  • Using smokey skin, I get "I cannot load this screen at this time. Please ensure that it exists and is error free." when I try to launch TV (MythTV). Not sure if this is expected, but if not let me know what debug info I can get you.
  • Using default skin, I cannot change channels in TV using the scrollable channel listing (I can if I use previous and next buttons).
QT5 crashes on launch.

That's all for now, cheers!

I cannot get this screen to load is a nice way of saying the screen isnt built yet. Trying to look into the tv stuff but last weekend was consumed fixing the qt5 build.

The tv channel list is being looked into as it affects live tv as well.

First, thank you to everyone who has spent a couple minutes providing feedback on qorbiter for android. After some serious thought and discussion as well as observation, I think its time to slow this train down a bit. I dont mean development will stop. Not in the least bit. But, I am guilty of jumping to the shiniest new object. Also, some other things need to be taken into consideration. Qorbiter now has binaries for:
*x86 Linux - Desktops
*Arm linux - Raspberry pi's
*Android
*OS X

Other platforms:
Windows is touch and go at this time...
Sailfish ive just not gotten around to
Same with blackberry
Made my first iOs app yesterday

This means there needs to be both active skin development and testing for all these platforms (no, not right now!) But in light of this, I think  I as a developer have a duty to take this a little more seriously, as its graduated far from a prototype toy. So, with all of that long winded statement out of the way, im proposing that we start working using the concept of agile development. There are many ways to do this, but I will share with you my understanding of this process.

1. Backlog - This is basically the entire wishlist of features. Everything you can think of. It supposed to be weighted by difficulty. A challenge here is to decide on how we deal with features across platforms.

2. Backlog Grooming - Taking stuff from the wish lists and putting it on the sprint task list. You are careful not to overload the sprint with too many tasks. the goal is to get things working within the sprint.

3. Sprint - Development time where things are developed. It could be bug fixes, new features, or a mix of both.

4. Sprint demo - Demonstration of sprint implementation

People involved.

Product Owners - This would normally be the client. They fill the backlog, weight the importance of features (1-5), and test features after a sprint. In this case, its the linuxmce community.

Scrum Master - This person directs the flow of traffic. Part project manager / Part developer the help with sprint planning and normally moderate daily standups (something we cant do)

Developer - Implements features and fixes bug according to the sprint plan.

SO, with all that said, basically I want to do something similar to this where...

*QOrbiter feature list / backlog is put in wiki.
*Tasks get groomed from feature list in wiki, to active tickets in trac.
*Tasks get completed over a 2 week sprint, people test
*Rinse repeat

The tasks could be picked by the community every two weeks for most important focus.

Pros:
More stable releases
Targeted feature completion.
Easier update paths

Cons:
Slower updates
Community decisions can be slow
Requires involvement of everyone (cause you know, its your product)

So, let me know what you think, but I seriously leaning this direction with the first tasks being
*Improve initial installation experience.
*Fix skin detection to properly detect phones / tablets
*Add remote screens
*Fix remote errors in sizing, commands sent.

Which version should I be running? I have a Nexus 7 (1st edition), Samsung GS2 and Samsung GS3 (and also a GS1 if that could work). I've been using QT4 and it works. Once thing I notice is that while playing videos that I'm able to jump to a section of a video on my GS2 using the progress bar at the bottom but  on my Nexus 7 I don't have that bar and I can't jump ahead.

Yes, I will be updating my old equipment soon. Likely a Moto X 2014 a GS5 and some other tablet...just waiting on some deals.

Happy Turkey Day to Everyone
Big thanks to Sambuca for fixes and code discussions, Phenigma for all his hard work in bringing up the onscreen qorbiters, and everyone for lots of argument and discussion that ended in better ways of putting this together.

New Binary on deb for download

Major fixes / additions

-Tablet / Default
*Added navigation buttons instead of text based buttons
*Re worked tablet default skin fit onto smaller form factor devices. (800 x 480 tablet used to test). Now should scale much better, though i am still looking for places it could be tweaked.
*Updated the sizing of the media grid delegates to be more readable
*Fixed problems with attribute filter placement. Now more consistent
*Changed file details screen, more improvements coming, started using generic state based QML element.

Right. Thanks for reminding that there is something ELSE about the current datagrid that is just wrong wrong wrong. Thats a hardcoded cell from Linuxmce, not qOrbiter. I will make the needed changes to hide it, in the mean time, please use the back button located in the top right.

Ill fix this and the actual android back button tonight. When in the media files grid screen, it should act as a back button.

Thanks for testing!

Post by: golgoj4 on December 15, 2014, 05:07:24 pm
We are moving to Qt5 guys. for a number of reasons.
*Narrow the amount of skins targets. Supporting 2 versions of Qt adds 2x the UI work
*Lots of technical enhancements that Qt5 brings.
*Sanity for developers

Some reasoning:
https://docs.google.com/drawings/d/1yLeekvLidg4qKSYw5epNXY3VaLBJmTD7RSRJyhQJ4gM/edit?usp=sharing

Some Raw Numbers on how much work there is to develop 1 skin.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1PbFSrje1QK8QLyd06o0UVHtgmvylH4GkDQExksF39YA/edit?usp=sharing

All is not doom and gloom. Qt4 Android Qorbiter will continue on for a bit to allow people to transition or get devices to replace the old ones. This will likely need to be posted as a sticky, but for those tuned in:

*Android Support for Qt5 is going to be android 4.0 forward.
*Any device you expect to run qorbiter on should support hardware acceleration.
 *A larger discussion needs to be had about if a masking UI will even be developed given the new UI framework
*iOS support will be from 5.0 onwards.
*Linux desktop targets should be using 14.04 or later.
*Osx, Windows minimum requirements TDB, but don't assume you can bring an old os to the party.


This past weekend was spent porting the existing Android Qorbiter skin to Qt5 (video below), as well as building up more iOS infrastructure (plugins, rotation, working on settings for iOS system integration). Hopefully we will see a limited beta soon.

Phenigma has been hard at work integrating qOrbiter into the linuxMCE build system and larger system so that its less of a rogue agent. This has been painful at parts, but quite necessary as we are trying to do this as correctly as possible. The end result is that soon we will have it available for download right for the webadmin page. In addition, the onscreen qorbiter is the next challenge to meet the requirements of an MD.

Now is the time to get involved at the QML level people :)

In case someone is asking: what beta? It is for the iOS version of qOrbiter.

Apple in their indefinitely doesn't allow people to just download apps to test them. They have to go through the app store which can be a long and (for us) very complicated process. To circumvent this, the developer can create an app and mark it usable for a specific device. So, if you have two iPhone 5s you want to test qOrbiter on, you will need two qOrbiter files. Nice, isn't it?!

Thanks golgoj4 for your work and determination to get things to all the platforms, even if some platform is more restrictive than others.
Title: Re: Need some dedicated testers.
Post by: golgoj4 on December 21, 2014, 03:52:09 pm
Yeah i was looking into and it seems i can use up to 100 devices before needing to submit to the app store.
Right now i need to make sure that this alpha version runs on other things besides my ipad (all i have to test) and then there will likely be a lull while i solve some issues like:
*Consistent deployment setup
*Network / Audio cutting off when it goes to the background
*Saving Retrieving Configuration file.

So far, working on the platform is
*Starting (obviously)
*Loading screens
*Running screensaver
*Playing video* with issues...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_iaIYr4ojc
*Playing audio with out issues

So its pretty much on par with the Android Qt5 version

one other question. I saw when updating skins that there seemed to be skins for tvcontrol, but trying tv (I'm using mythtv ) but says the screen doesn't exist. I just want to make sure, that it's not an error on my machine, but that feature isn't available yet, correct?

Hey,

I'm trying to install the Qorbiter5 on a LG Nexus 5.

But unfortunelly i'm stuck somewhere.
The Qorbiter on my android phone 'hangs' on --- please wait, loading.... ---


I think that it's a problem with the server. Since I couldn't install it like written in http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Android_Orbiter.
The link "http://langstonball.com/qorbiter/setupQorbiter.sh" doesn't work me.

So I followed this manual: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/QOrbiter_Setup.
But I guess somewhere, I did something wrong... :$

Sorry about that, it's been up and live since last Tuesday.  I completely forgot to mention it.  In case I forget in the future you can watch http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/LinuxMCE-1204_pre-alpha for updates to 1204 packages.

On your core:
Code: [Select]
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

If you have not already, ensure that you have the android skins package installed on your core:
Code: [Select]
apt-get install lmce-qorbiter-skins-android

Then, from you android device, you can navigate to the webadmin page on the core.  At the webadmin login page there is a link to "Download Orbiter, Utilities and other software", click that and then you can download "Orbiter For Android Qt5". 

Make sure you remove the old qorbiters from you devices, then you can install the new .apk you downloaded from the core.

When updates happen the procedure is the same to upgrade.

Post by: phenigma on January 21, 2015, 03:20:26 pm
mhm.  That looks like the touch orbiter.  I've requested a new webadmin package which should have the links.  Until then you can find the file on your core, I'm not at my system atm and cannot remember the exact location off the top of my head.

You can use the console 'find' command to locate all files with an .apk extension to find the file, otherwise I can check when I get home much later today.

Im very sorry for being so MIA as of late. Work, Life, etc has left me with little time to keep folks up to date on the happenings of development.

*Last month has been spent converting from networks skins (problematic on multiple levels) to an new way of doing things. Basically, users wont half to be part techie to update their skins. Skins will be in the application from now on.

That means that if you have recently grabbed Qorbiter for android, you should already have them on your device. I am working on the remote screens now before I make it the default.

There is a setting which will allow you to choose if you want the internal vs external.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLY8r7uR4YI This video shows how to change back and forth.

Maverick: mythtv screen isnt in there yet, but the live tv screen is. That means that when i get back from my biz trip, I can enable the mythtv screen as its basically the same as the livetv.

Thanks again to you intrepid users who are so patient. It really is helpful even if it seems like nobody is listening to your issues / responding.


And now for this

That means that if you have recently grabbed Qorbiter for android, you should already have them on your device. I am working on the remote screens now before I make it the default.

There is a setting which will allow you to choose if you want the internal vs external.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nLY8r7uR4YI This video shows how to change back and forth.

Maverick: mythtv screen isnt in there yet, but the live tv screen is. That means that when i get back from my biz trip, I can enable the mythtv screen as its basically the same as the livetv.

Thanks again to you intrepid users who are so patient. It really is helpful even if it seems like nobody is listening to your issues / responding.


And now for this
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nh3CsehIgIY
*note the ios version is using the internal skins.

Hi,  I din't seem to work for me which version is the one you are using on that youtube video?, it looks different than mine.  Im using the one I get from the webadmin.  If I download the one is on your link, I get the white background and that's it!. 
Version from my webadmin : qt5a1-gl, but is says debug at the installer.  Yours is the same, but after it says loading, I get a white screen and that's it!
The debug version does not show that skin option, can I change it manually at the xml?

Cheers,

T

looking into this issue.

Try this nightly for your trouble. (its been tested on a bunch of things about 5 min before this post)
!! Uninstall previous qorbiter before installing this or you will get an error when trying to install !!
!!This includes the Linuxmce directory on your SD card!!

As i´m new to the qOrbiter, is the updates happen on the app or on the core with lmce-orbiter* packages?

Right now IOS is manual update while some legal issues are resolved. Long story short, releasing to apple app store costs me money (besides the money spent for developer account, hardware) so im doing the math to make sure i dont screw myself / run afoul of licensing. Would look bad to be a highly visible Qt developer who was flouting licensing agreements.

The current distribution method gets us around that (im pretty sure).

  • On the phone: go to the webadmin, and install Orbiter For Android Qt5 from there

I've just tried this on my LG Nexus 5 Phone...
It wouldn't create a new qorbiter. I had the link on the bottom to create a new Orbiter ending with the '>'. But this wasn't clickable for me. I created a qorbiter myself in the webmin, and then I could select it afterwards in the Phone.

I see 2 problems for the moment:

- All fonts are to big for the buttons. But I remember to see this popping up in other topics/replies. So maybe I'll need to search for this first...
- The installation didn't created an icon on my phone. So I must rerun each time the apk file...




ps i've got another IP then the default one, I had to change the IP 192.168.80.1 to 192.168.111.1. But don't think that this should be an issue.

Is your phone rooted or something? There is no 'one time' install on android. Otherwise you would have to approve the app every time you opened it. As for fonts, I will look into that, maybe we need another build.

I have a question regarding btw built in mediaplayback...at least what I saw in your airport video. I tried this at home. Qorbiter is setup  for my beamer. So I selected the location for beamer and then this device. I checked under advanced, it says media player connected.
However, when I click on media, either nothing happens, or I get an error saying unable to load the screen.
Is that the current state, or am  I missing something?

Post by: golgoj4 on August 14, 2015, 07:16:10 pm
There is an update in the works. already in svn, build (both qorbiter AND linuxmce web admin) should be rolling out soon that should deal with this issue. Been lots of work on the issue as you can see in the timeline http://svn.linuxmce.org/trac/timeline

There are some other things to note:
-qMediaPlayer is limited by the capabilities of your platform. What that means is, of you are on a mobile device, there are a lot of videos that just wont play due to codec issues. After spending a lot of time tearing my hair out over the last month or so, this is what ive found.

Audio
-Most MP3's play. Certain very high bitrate mp3's dont.
-Flac, OGG may work on Android, wont on ios
-Streaming audio seems to work fine.

Video
-Specific requirements on both ios and android
  -.xh264 video codec
  -aac audio encoding
  -Bitrate / resolution limitations. A dvd quality file will play. a blu-ray quality file with struggle


Thank you for your patience.
I realize I get quiet and forget to update this thread.
@langstonius on twitter might get my attention
you can also keep track of what updates get released here: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/LinuxMCE-1204_pre-alpha

Dear All, It happened the same to me.  I was testing with a Samsung S6, no linuxmce folder either, neither the create a new orbiter option.  What it did worked was the finding a previous created orbiter.
I did also tryed on a Samsung tab2 which worked fine before the update, after the update same as maverick.  It seems to me that the issue is at the lmce server side.
I had as reference point a Samsung s4 without doing any updates on the android app and the same results.

LMCE version: 2.0.0.46.15090731351
qorbiter qt5a1-gl

I hope this info is helpful
Willing to test any update with both of the systems.

Massive apologies to everyone. I didnt realize my work schedules was going to from 0 to 100 like that, or i would have been more cautious on pushing things forward.

I have less time to dedicate to linuxmce as im working on a new personal project, which means other features i was working on for other parts of the system are in the lurch right now as I bring my focus back to qorbiter.

If it makes anyone feel better, i have also been sorta of boned as these problems have affected me too, but being so damn busy no time to fix. the window has re-opened!

Interesting...did a fresh install of 12.04 and got the skins. I was surprised to see qorbiter working very well... but it didn't last on the next trial, I was back to square one... meaning it looks just like in the screenshot above. Rebooting either the core or the phone won't bring it back successfully.

Hi to all,

Here is some feedback.  Im running 1404 since a couple of days now and qt5 on a Samsung s6 is working ok.  Just a couple of buttons that dont do what they are supposed to.
Listed right below:

Power: it only have: Power off display, Power off MD, Reboot Core, Reboot MD.  There is no POWER ON.  POWER OFF DISPLAY works, POWER OFF MD doesn't.  I did not tested the other two!  It could have cause caos in the family

VIDEO: It does not have the ALL button, so if you dont have properly setup your DB, it will be impossible to find your files, but right I get nothing.  None of the movies are showing, not even the public.  If I start the movie on the MD orbiter, then I can control it on the QT5 orbiter on the phone without problems.

Any ideas?

Power off is disabled for all MDs by default.  You can set the PowerOff mode in the advanced settings for the Media Director in webadmin.

VIDEO: It does not have the ALL button, so if you dont have properly setup your DB, it will be impossible to find your files, but right I get nothing.  None of the movies are showing, not even the public.  If I start the movie on the MD orbiter, then I can control it on the QT5 orbiter on the phone without problems.

We do not have an All button anywhere.  We do have a 'Filename' view that has never been impletemented in qOrbiter, which is why I do not use qOrbiter regularly.  :)

Hope that helps.

That's not entirely correct. I remember in one earlier iteration of qorbiter fileview was working, but apparently this functionality got lost.
So I am a bit wondering....I know that golgoj4 seems to be in higher in demand jobwise...is there still some ongoing develpoment, or is  it resting?
Just wondering....

Checked in browse by file button last night.

Some additional work needs to be done to reset attributes when switching how you sort, but that doesnt immediately impact browsing through files.

The problem is that there are different 'categories' of attributes and in some cases if you select one attribute, like browse by file, then others should be reset (like ones that would set the media sub type to movies or something). This doesnt affect most people though i want to fix it.

Also I was testing it some time ago and I forgot to mention that volume buttons does not work, maybe it is my setup (TV + DENON RECEIVER).  Controlling volume within the media director orbiter works ok,  test it via web orbiter and also works.

golgoj4 has created a new iOS version of qOrbiter - it can be downloaded from

Note: Due to the way Apple handles stuff outside of their store, you need to provide your UDID to golgoj4 to allow the ipa to run on your system.

Im trying to use more often the qorbiter.  On a Samsung S6 the app is still working ok, there are some options that are not working. 
1.  Volume: On the media director that is connected to a DENON, it does not change the volume
2.  Queue instead of instant play does not work.

1.  Volume: On the media director that is connected to a DENON, it does not change the volume

I have a Denon amp in my living room and there are no issues.  A volume change command does not typically rely on a specific origin or destination it is simply a command.  If you can provide logs from another orbiter working and the qorbiter not working then we may be able to begin looking at why....   but again, it works here.

mhm, that is an 'Orbiter' setting that is not likely yet included in qOrbiters logic.

DEVICEDATA_Queue_Instead_of_Instant_Play_CONST is never looked at, so phenigma is probably correct in his assumption.

I have a Denon amp in my living room and there are no issues.  A volume change command does not typically rely on a specific origin or destination it is simply a command.  If you can provide logs from another orbiter working and the qorbiter not working then we may be able to begin looking at why....   but again, it works here.

Do anyone know how this is even supposed to work? Never worked on the original orbiter for me, so im confused as to what im supposed to even do here.

Note: Due to the way Apple handles stuff outside of their store, you need to provide your UDID to golgoj4 to allow the ipa to run on your system.

Hi Golgoj4,

I sent you a PM with the relevant info. Just checking if you got it.

Thanx

Hi,

Im trying to use more often the qorbiter.  On a Samsung S6 the app is still working ok, there are some options that are not working. 
1.  Volume: On the media director that is connected to a DENON, it does not change the volume
2.  Queue instead of instant play does not work.

Cheers,

T

Is there any way for you to follow the log and post a snippet? Would like to see what its saying when you press volume.

For a couple of days now I noticed, that qorbiter is not showing scenario for telecom anymore. Right now, when I open it, it shows me the media line and the button for the weather plugin, nothing else.
Is this by design, or is that a bug?

Bug. can you provide more information? Even if they are empty, all the scenario categories should show. Also what is the weather plugin button?
Title: Re: Need some dedicated testers.
Post by: phenigma on July 03, 2016, 06:42:33 pm
Also what is the weather plugin button?

When you install the weather plugin you get a scenario button in climate to take you to the weather information screen.

Several times actually.I even deleted the qobiter and made a new one...no change

Wait a minute... does regenerate orbiter do shit for qorbiter?  I think I may have altered some things around that.  UpdateEntArea still happens for everything, but /me was pretty sure orbitergen didn't do anything for qOrbiters.  Definitely need some more info here.

No, it calls a some php from qOrbiter itself to regenerate its xml configuration. I believe in the code sambucca added code that explicitly ignores it for now.

What happens when you change rooms? are the scenario's still screwy?
Title: Re: Need some dedicated testers.

changing the room, everything is the same...at least its consistent :-D

Well damn....ok trying to figure this one out.

But to be clear when changing rooms:
*You do see all your rooms?
*when you change to another, none of the scenarios change?


please send me a paste of this command run from a browser:
http://dcerouter/lmce-admin/qOrbiterGenerator.php?d=<qOrbiter device number>

Hi Phenigma, which log files would show the information needed?.  If I try the media director or the web orbiter, both works ok, but nothing happens using the qorbiter

hi Golgoj4, that looks awesome!! how did you got the videos running on the orbiter? or the device not the media director???.
When you make the update, does the app of the android device has to be updated too? or only the core?

Is this issue still a problem Maverick? Try updating the webadmin and going again.

Post by: maverick0815 on July 19, 2016, 04:22:35 pm
if by updating webadmin, you mean the update button next to the qorbiter in webadmin, then I did this. In general, my system is up-to-date patchwise. I still don't have all the scenarios back on the qorbiter. I can try creating another one, but I doubt it will make much of a difference, since I had deleted and created my qorbiter before, without any change for the better.

Sorry for not being specific. i meant the actual web admin package. there were some recent fixes applied that should fix it. I will have ask posde do a new qorbiter build as well.

an updated package is available for 1204. In theory it should work for others as well, so I put the apk itself up for grabs at

Please report back your findings.

ok, I will try that as soon as I'm home.
This morning after I pulled the update for the webadmin, I deleted the qorbiter device, recreated it(with a reload router before and after). I uninstalled qorbiter from my device and downloaded again from dcerouter. After install and first start, however I was asked if I wanted to install an update for qorbiter- is that a new mechanism, or is it trying to pull something from the playstore?

I have re-activated the play store listing, but the two (should be) unrelated as Linuxmce doesnt officially sign the apk, where as the play store does, essentially making them different.

seems I always get the odd stuff, huh ? :-)

Anyways, I tried the latest build from posde, but the thing still looks the same.

Ok. We will figure this thing out....
*Dont delete the qorbiter so frequently, there really is no need.
*Under advanced -> settings is the device number correct? (maybe hit clear settings and restart)

The xml seems to be getting generated, im just confused as to why the heck it wont switch rooms

Not necessarily. I just fixed a bug i discovered where the device ID wasnt being properly cleared when you hit clear settings. So it may have been my fault :)

Happy you are up and running again!

Hi to all, so to clear my binary logic.. the proper way to update is update core, delete qobtirer orbiter, delete app on android, create new q orbiter, download app from webadmin, setup orbiter on android with device I'd?.  does q orbiter on Web admin needs to be deleted?.
update core, delete app on android, download app from Web admin, update from appstore clear device I'd?

My apologies for so many questions but might give us like me shorted of skills, a way to avoid more problems and help better on the cause!!

cheers,
T

as far as I understood it, that was just my radical behaviour.
to update qorbiter, you uninstall it from your mobile device, reboot, perhaps delete the linuxmce-folder, if it still exist. download the fresh build and install it.
no need to muck around with the qorbiter device in webadmin.

You shouldnt need to remove it from your device. It should install over the existing version. No need to delete folders as the settings are now stored using and non user exposed settings system (the android settings system that your other apps use).

No need to delete existing qorbiter from your linuxmce install.
No need to delete the existing qorbiter from your android device

EXCEPT
The qorbiter installation package (apk) that linuxmce releases has a different release key from the one in the Google Play store. This means it wont let you install from the webadmin and then try to update from google play, and vice versa. This is really a rare case but i thought i would mention it.

Thanks Golgoj. Excellent.  One question, how about the skin.  On your video posted, I saw that it looks different than mine.  Is there a preferred skin or theme?  Can it be changed?

The other thing is that I haven't figure out yet why i´m not able to control my denon volume using the qorbiter.  With te web orbiter is perfect! and as Phenigma mentioned, it shouldn't be related, but In my case it does, not sure why!
Ill Keep testing and reporting along.  So far everything else on my Samsung S6 works ok!.  Great job!!!

I dont know if this is out of bound but is it possible to add support to the qorbiter app for using the Bluetooth? Thinking that with the BT, the media director with BT dongle will "sense" that you are in that room and trigger some rules? like changing automatically to that room or follow you or whatever rule you could think off...... maybe this is better for a wish list post !!! hahahahaha ;D ;D.  Ill drop this idea elsewhere!!! hahahahah... I can already hear the..... get focus!!!! ahahahah.

Cheers,

The UI shifts some depending on what type of device you have. There are variations for large, medium, and small screens. I am working on allowing the user to change it, but its currently selected for you based on the screen size of your device.


Bluetooth...talk to posde. Im not allowed to touch it or something.
Title: Re: Need some dedicated testers.
Post by: phenigma on July 29, 2016, 04:58:53 am
New Bluetooth interfaces are in the works... But don't hold your breath.  The new device will permit BT audio and that will also include follow me support.  But honestly it's time consuming and that's not something in great supply at the moment.

Am i right to assume, that every phone or Tablet needs its own qorbiter device?
Right now i have a tablet and an android phone, each got their own device. The tablet is working nicely, the phone not so much...i cannot browse any media and subsequently not play anything using that phone.

Yes, each device should have its own qorbiter device.


What happens with the phone? It just doesn't connect?

It connects but like I said...no media is being presented....like the problem I had before...maybe there is still some old config snag on that phone

I would install the latest build (i believe its been built) and then go to the advanced screen -> settings, and hit 'clear settings'. then exit and reopen it.

very nice indeed....is this a new build? if so, where I can download it from? I just updated my linuxsystem, but other than new kernel, I didn't see anything for qorbiter.
Since you also went to TV-Shows, I found the way you selected the episodes very interesting. I admit, it has been a while since I looked into that section, but I will try. Before I always had trouble finding the proper episode other than in fileview.

Thanks!

As always you can keep up to date on when new packages are pushed for users by watching: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/LinuxMCE-1204/1404_Updates#Upcoming_fixes...  No package listed there means it is NOT available in the repository yet.

The tv shows in my db have been run through the auto-tagger, so they have metadata which allows browsing using the tv filter.

Post by: maverick0815 on August 09, 2016, 04:59:56 pm
ok, I opened a new thread for the auto-tagger.
Qorbiter on my second device is still not working. I cannot browse any kind of media. I did as you suggested. I downloaded the latest build I can get my grubby hands on. I uninstalled the old one from the phone, installed the new one. Upon opening I select the proper device, but I don't get any media presented. The rest seems to work. Having my tablet and my phone set to TV-Set and starting VDR, both are properly synchronised.

One other thing I came across checking the youtube-videos. I had asked you before about the built-in mediaplayer. I just wanted to check this again, but I cannot select "This Device" anymore. Right now I can switch between the areas in the house, but thats it.

Did you also 'clear settings' in the advanced screen?

Ok.... im a bit at a loss for why its not working. Bear with me if my questions seem stupid.

*Are there scenarios under media?
*If there are, do they not respond when clicked?
*What happens when you change rooms?
Title: Re: Need some dedicated testers.
Post by: maverick0815 on August 10, 2016, 08:00:42 pm
No problem..I am just as interested in figuring this out as you...
there are Scenarios
They do react and respond when clicked
No matter what room I change to...from that qorbiter, I can't get to any media.
For example : Internet radio- I see no stations with that orbiter in any room. If I use my tablet, everything is peachy.
By the way, I don't know if this is relevant: The Phone runs on Marshmallow.

Sorry guys, for being absent for a long time....so far I still haven't been able to use my phone properly with qorbiter....perhaps I should exchange the device-ids on the phone and the tablet and see, if that makes any difference.
Title: Re: Need some dedicated testers.
Post by: maverick0815 on November 10, 2016, 11:32:47 pm
Well, I exchanged the id's, but the behaviour is the same. Tablet is ok, the phone not so much....
