Installation issues / Re: ZWave installation problems
« on: October 09, 2012, 09:38:29 pm »
just read the user guide for the aeon labs stick here, and it says that the only way to make it a secondary is to use the host software (meaning LMCE I figure)

Hi All,

I got the HA07 controller to controll my lights before i got my LMCE core back up and running after my move into my new house (yay for not having to move anymore and rip out my modules! :-)  )

That being said, it works great and got it for $15 USD bucks new on amazon. I got it primarily for being able to control my exterior lights to turn on automagically at sunset and off at sunrise.

What i did learn is about the devices and only having one inclusion controller. I had to remove the devices from my Aeon labs stick before i could add them to the HA07. So, now, i've got 12 z-wave modules controlled by my HA07 but can't figure out how to transfer them over to my Aeon labs stick.

Does anyone have one of these that can share some input on copying over from one to the other? I feel that the z-stick would be more of a secondary option since it only has one button (press once to add, second to stop trying to add, and hold button to delete). To be honest whatever way i can get both to work i'll do. My LMCE box is back online now so i'm ready to rumble.

main reason i was considering x10 was because of price. avg price of a wall module $20 USD whereas z-wave or insteon is ~$40-60 USD

I realize this is couple weeks behind the conversation but...  But IR control from the USR-UIRT to a Logitech Harmony PS3 adaptor (bassically an IR to Bluetooth converter) takes IR codes and sends the bluetooth codes to the PS3.  Supports all functionality of the PS3 BD remote control.

I have 2 of these converters with USB-UIRTs sending IR from LMCE and controlling my PS3s wonderfully.  Easy, simple, no fuss, no re-inventing the wheel, it just works.


Could you elaborate more on this? You are using a harmony to talk to both the USB-UIRT AND the harmony bluetooth adapter? or have the USB-UIRT facing the bluetooth adapter and have LMCE sending the commands directly to the bluetooth adapter which is connected to the PS3?

add it as a game machine. the template exists for generic gaming console.
tell it the inputs
add a ps3 ir dongle for extra points

be done

think people!


Yes that was my main question, being able to switch to it on demand. I will most likely be using LMCE primarily for lighting and music control and my PS3 for streaming/watching movies.

I know this thread is a little old, but is still relevant. Is the CM19a supported now?

or should i stick with getting a CM15a? Main reason i ask is my core doesn't have a serial port, meaning I would need to install a PCI card...

Is there a way to make my ps3 a device in LMCE?

I want to be able to have my MD connected to my TV and have the PS3 be routed through it, but I'm thinking i'm going to have to have them be separate and just use like a harmony to switch between the two, no?

Users / Design Question - New system install
« on: May 07, 2012, 08:45:22 pm »
Hello all!

Long time, no input from me. Been working on moving and whatnot and had to abandon my efforts on my LMCE system.
I'm back and looking to get into the nitty gritty.

I have this concept which i will try out and I was wondering if any of you had any input on the matter.

I just recommissioned my Beefy PC into a new Ubuntu 12.04 LTS server and made it a samba server so it will be my network storage for both windows and linux PCs. Its a Q6600 with 8GB RAM and a 512MB video card (dual gigabit NICs, will be adding a third).

I also have Virtualbox installed on here and what I am thinking of doing is running LMCE inside the VM and dedicated the necessary resources to LMCE to be my core. (also bridge 2 of my gigabit NICS for LMCE and leave the third as a NIC dedicated for my host server. also mount whatever USB devices to my LMCE image that I need).

That way i can use LMCE as a standard core and also have the benefit of having all of my media stored in a network share for anyone to access.

Later, I will add separate nettop boxes to be my MDs throughout the house.

Does anyone have any reservations about this? I figured this would be nice to do since i have plenty of processing power on my PC and want to maximize the use.

Now that 12.04 is out ( and pretty awesome IMHO) are there still talks of this being built on that now?

Users / PC Cases design for storage
« on: September 16, 2011, 05:48:18 pm »
Does anyone know of any PC cases designed to hold a LOT of hard drives?

I'v got an Abit AB9 Pro board that I'm going to load up with either 6 or 9 drives in a RAID config, but want a better case to stick it in

I think i'm going to just make my rig a Giant Network File Server/ NAS, then dedicate another box to be my rig. Its such a hard decision, but i have plenty of equipment laying around. just need to figure out the optimal use for everything

 ??? :-\

Or does it make more sense for me to just pick up a NAS and dump everything on there.

Or does it make more sense to just turn my main Rig into a Giant NAS and use a different PC for my core?

Users / Using core as a NFS
« on: September 15, 2011, 05:33:44 pm »
Is it possible to use my core as a NFS?

My main board can handle up to 9 Sata Drives. I have 6TB in a local RAID5 config now, but i wanna add some more drives, and use some of the extra bays as a SMB file share for my network to get the most out of my PC.

Is this possible?
