Title: Specifying a pipe for a non-DCE device
Post by: ajward on February 13, 2009, 06:18:23 pm
Hi guys,

Still making progress with the Dusky Control device for Sky boxen.

I have the device working, and I have the "ReceiveCommandForChild()" method picking up the fact that a Sky box is a child to the control box, and the control box DCE device has to change channels on the child Sky box.

I need to refine the templates so that I can identify the Video signal from the Sky box as an output (typically connected via a SCART lead to an input in the TV).

I can't work out how to do it. In the device template definition, the only relevant thing seems to be something like "Edit Audio/Video Attributes". And when I click on that, it tries to download IR codes, and fails. I'm not sure if it fails because there are no relevant IR codes, or if there is still a problem with the linuxmce.org service that offers these codes. Anyway it seems to be fatal to the process, and I can't get any further.

Where do I define that a non-DCE device (a set-top box) has a video output?

Again, sorry if it's obvious and I've missed it, but I've spent a frustrating few hours looking, and this is hopefully the last step.

Cheers,
Andy Ward.

...although thinking on it, surely it has to be a charateristic of the device template, not the individual device?
