Title: VDR in 0710b3 - No key is working (except some function keys)
Post by: posde on January 25, 2008, 12:48:16 am
Hello,

I finally had a chance to add one of my DVB-S cards to my LMCE setup. Channels.conf created, and I am able to watch TV. Good.

But, how do I do things like switching channels? Going into recording mode?

I am currently using UI1 ie. the most basic setup.

I do not use a regular remote control right now, but just a regular keyboard.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

F6 is the media menu for all modules, and so the same for VDR, but is just basic OSD and channel change at the moment. F7 the normal menu for VDR, but not many of the functions work. There is no basic interface to recordings, etc yet as it is very beta!

I did install VDRadmin, and that gives you an extremely nice interface and full menu options, including extensive video and audio preferences - presumably plugging and activating the normal VDR interface that LMCE doesn't connect through to yet.

That being said - my LMCE box is now screwed! It boots up as if it is a dedicated core, with no Orbiter options, even though the Orbiter [20] is still in the admin site. Can't work out how to fix it or what caused it - but this happened overnight and I installed vdradmin late last night, so be ware :) it may be coincidence (probably) but don't blame me if it does the same to yours..

I've switched to UI2 for VDR as its support didn't seem very integrated yet with UI1.  BTW, you can also use extra mouse buttons (if you have them) for F6-F8: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Use_Additional_Mouse_Buttons

I had tried UI2 before, and found the problem with not being able to use the arrow keys to seleect anything. That's why I went with UI1, because it had better usability IMHO. I will need to reinstall the n800 mobile orbiter to see if that is usable.

Thanks

Hi all

Well in answer to your ponder thee colinjones I think I can safely say that installing vdradmin via the aptitude method at least as desacribed in another post by totally maxed is a sure fire way to mess up your linuxmce box.
I have just had to reinstall my system due to a md dying cos of wife pullingplug which seems to have killed it so thought I would give vdr a blast and try the vdradmin. I had the system running and installed vdradmin ok. I then rebooted the machine and now it launches x an the LMCE Launch manager
I get connecting to router art 127.0.0.1, Connect ok in the messages and it just sits there with no option to load orbiter.
As you said it seems to have lost the obiter functionality.

Regards

Hmmm... I don't remember posting anything about installing vdradmin using aptitude? Although I have to say that I have done an install using aptitude and it worked as it should... fine.

Sorry andrew my bad.

I asked you in the vdr setup post here http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=3850.30 where vdradmin was being discussed how to install it.
Next time I read it there was a reply to my question. Guess I didnt bother to look at the poster and guesses it was you.
Was wondering if I was going mad or if you were!!!!

It was posde not yourself that suggested installing it via the following command.
"sudo aptitude install vdradmin-am"

After running this command and then rebooting I experience death of my core.
On a side not after reboot I can access the vdradmin page!!!

Was wondeing if it was because I was installin vdradmin-am I notice it is a split off version of the software or something.
Which version are you using and how would you recommend installing it?

Regards

Ah ok.

So what is the expected time scale for the release of the full vdr integration? Also with use on multiple media directors.
I was under the impression from discussions with yourself some while ago that you had this working on your system and using 6 tuners and anyone in the system being able to watch any channel?

I hope I dont sound as if im hassling. I am very impressed with the work you have done so far and am just eager to get linuxmce working in a full capacity which I cannot achieve till I have a workable tv setup which I dont seem to have with myth and vdr seems like it will provide.

Hmmm... well i have been a little over optimistic in the past so i don't think I'd better say anything to specific on the 'When' question. But it will be as soon as possible.

We do have several 6 tuner systems on test and also in daily use. My home system has 3 tuners and we watch live/recorded TV with almost no limitations.

Yes, if you install vdradmin-am - you can use all the functionality through the web admin, remote tool. However, be aware that several have broken their LMCE by installing this. Anecdotally, using aptitude over apt-get install seems to kill things. But treat this with the suspicion it deserves! At this stage I have not been keen enough to reinstall - too many other problems at the moment :)

Yes apt-get install vdradmin-am will install everything for you... however you will still need to do a lot of configuration inside vdradmin-am and in the files system. We are working on deb's that will automate the config.

It seems, aptitude is something to be avoided right now. Doing an aptitude update && aptitude safe-upgrade deinstalls a number of packages and downgrades msttcore-fonts.

How did you break your LMCE installation after installing vdradmin? It heeded the latest VDR and LMCE VDR version was removed? Because I had similar case with Pluto. Once I decided to test VDR on the Pluto core (at least standalone). So, when I tried to install vdradmin using apt-get it referred to the VDR version with was newer then Pluto had. And it deisntalled it.

I´m one of those guys that ruined my 0710b3 install.
I installed vdradmin-am from source, but it depends on some perl libraries which I installed with apt-get.
After couple of reboots I lost my "Media Station".
As far as I could investigate the problem my conclusion was that launchamanager was unable to connect to mysql even though I could connect to it from shell with "mysql -u root pluto_main".
I guess that some of those perl libs that I installed screwed something up.

I enfed up by doinbg a reinstall and then isntalled vdradminä-am with apt-get. Have not had any issues yet.

Sorry only just spotted this.

Yes it is from the UI2 EPG screen (use F6 to get "Compass Rose" on screen control... highlight the upper yellow triangle and press "OK"). Then hightlight the channel in the leftmost column... now press right on the remote (or keyboard) once to get the highlight in the centre column (this now displaying the TV program running order for the channel previously selected)... now us up/down to select the TV show you are interested in... Program info will be displayed in rightmost column at the top... below that is a panel with some controls... highlight & then "OK" or click the 'Red' record button to set a recording for that show.

Please realise this and other elements of lmcevdr are still a 'work in progress'...

I have just tested adding vdradmin-am using from the console;

sudo su - <return>

apt-get install vdradmin-am <return>

Now edit the following conf... making sure you change the default user/password and set the 'SERVERPORT = 8001' (set to a port you have opened in the LinuxMCE firewall... 8001 is just the default);

joe /var/lib/vdradmin-am/vdradmind.conf (**I use the Joe editor to do this) <return>

Save your changes to the above.

Now edit the vdradmin-am file... change the 'ENABLED="0"' to 'ENABLED="1"';

joe /etc/default/vdradmin-am <return>

Save your changes to the above.

Now make sure vdr is running;

/etc/init.d/vdr restart <return>

and then start vdradmin-am;

/etc/init.d/vdradmin-am start <return>

Now go to a Web browser on your Core and type http://localhost:8001 (**port No. you set in the conf) or from another machine on your LAN http://192.168.80.1:8001 (**or whatever IP your Core's LAN address is and the port you set in the conf)

The OK button doesn't actually seem to do anything, nor my Fiire remote's red record button - just cancels the menu. However when I go to the far right panel and choose Once it puts a red circle next to the entry. Press it again and the circle goes away. I'm assuming that this sets a recording...

However, Channel/Show put a green tick next to the entry and/or the entire channel on the left. Is this a reminder or another kind of recording? Either way, nothing I do seems to get rid of it....

Hi Andrew,

This didn't work for me. Nothing seems to happen when I try this. I may be following the wrong procedure - I'm currently finding I can't access the forum from home - so I'll print this out and try again this evening.
When you talk about the red record button - you do mean onscreen, right? The only screen I've seen which this could apply to is one where there are several menu options from 1 to 6, then down the bottom are coloured bars - Red for Record, Amber for Audio and so on. They are not clickable, and using the arrow keys on the Fiire merely select the menu options. I've tried using the key on the Fiire which has a Red dot below, but it retains it's original function and brings up the pictures screen (while the live TV continues).

Could my problem stem from the fact that I don't have EPG fully working? When installing, I chose only the Live EPG data - I havn't set up to get the EPG from an internet source.

Best Regards,
Richard.

I take this back. When I sat in front of the screen with the printout of this thread, I saw what you meant, and it worked just as you said. Works well too.

Something else I've got to take back is what I said about EPG. I've no recollection of setting it up, but it is getting EPG from somewhere. I have EPG for some channels for a week. I thought the off-air EPG was only a Now/Next service. Does anyone know how much the Ausie stations put into EPG?

Many thanks for that, Andrew!

Now/Next is a display format more than anything else. The EPG transmitted(able) over DVB isn't limited to this. HOWEVER - extremely annoyingly, in Australia for the last few years all channels ONLY transmitted N/N data, updating as a timeslot came to an end. An absolutely futile and pathetic attempt to stop people too easily recording the transmissions with the rapidly emerging PVRs, demonstrating a complete lack of understanding of how the market was going to develop! I'm sure most other countries wouldn't have had this problem!

However, for a while now most channels have been transmitting around a week or so of data. I say most - at least one commerical station only transmits N/N (can't remember which) and ABC/SBS can be a little patchy at times. And channel Ten rarely seems to transmit any description info.

Either way, once I have my system stable (and on 0710 release version) I hope to look into Oztivo again - they provide an XML service for all FTA/PayTV stations in AU. Apparently you can integrate these into LMCE. Especially important as I hope to get SelecTV at some point, being the only PayTV service I can find who are happy for you to use your own DVB-S card with decrypter so that I can plug this straight into the LMCE system.... so will need a consistent EPG across these...

Thanks, Colin! That confirms what I saw, then - I'm not losing my mind just yet. I was thinking the extra data was coming off the web in some unexplained fashion.

As far as updating from the web goes, it works very well. I had it working with B2 with Myth before I nuked it and loaded B3.

You need to have uploaded a valid channels.conf file for your local DVB-T service using Web Admin -> Advanced -> Configuration -> VDR Setup (see other threads here on generating a channels.conf file). The vdr epg is delivered over the air from the TV transmissions and not from the Internet.

Once you have done the above then reboot your core. Now you should use the Orbiters Media -> TV menu to fire up live TV. Once you have a live picture on the screen then follow the steps in my earlier post to get the 'Compass Rose' control on screen etc etc.

No I don't and currently we are not expecting to use it in the release version. The vdradmin-am deb already in the Beta3 works fine and will most likely be the version used shortly in the release.

Thats great Richard... only just read the above and that was after I sent my earlier post re your problems with accessing vdr.

The over-the-air EPG here in the UK is currently a rolling 8 day window. I'm not sure what is the standard in Australia.

Post by: nite_man on February 22, 2008, 10:53:16 am
I have a few questions about VDR.

1. EPG. If I understand correctly EPG is stored in the /var/cache/vdr/epg.data and this is EPG came from the satellite, right? Can I just replace it by my custom EPG which contains the channels which I interested in? Should I restart VDR after that?

2. Plug-ins. Using apt-cache search vdr* I found a lot of VDR plug-ins packages. But there is not one for LCDproc (http://home.pages.at/linux/dvb.html (http://home.pages.at/linux/dvb.html)). So, is it possible to compile it from the sources or you're planning to build the package for it?

3. Remote control. I'd like to use my iMON PAD with VDR. So, it'll be ok if I just modify the /var/lib/vdr/remote.conf? It won't be overrode next VDR restarting?

4. Sorting channels and favourite list. How can I sort channels displayed in the left menu when the F6 is pressed? I tuned more than 1000 channels and most of them I don't need. How can I create a list of favourite channels or maybe I just have to remove unnecessary channels from the channels.conf?

BTW, Yesterday I updateded a VDR wiki page - http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/VDR (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/VDR). You're very welcome to improve it.

I'd like to say that remote control work more or less fine with VDR. I have to study a bit its keys. But at least it displays OSD, recording menu etc.

Hi Michael,

good to hear that the n800 orbiter works as a remote for VDR within LMCE.

4. Sorting channels and favourite list. How can I sort channels displayed in the left menu when the F6 is pressed? I tuned more than 1000 channels and most of them I don't need. How can I create a list of favourite channels or maybe I just have to remove unnecessary channels from the channels.conf?

You can do it in your channels.conf file. Just delete all channels you are not going to use, and sort the rest however you like.
Then import it again in the webadmin.

Thanks for your suggestion, cirion. I was thinking about it. Will try it.
