Users / Re: [12.04] OpenZWave Aeon ZStick Issue
« on: July 29, 2015, 10:29:23 pm »
Im using ZStick, too.

You must disable polling! Device gets stuck from time to time. Especially when it has to deal with a lot of messages it will get stuck. Plugging out an plugging in helps (mostly).

Aeon support recommends a maximum of 1 per minute (!).

I have one of them. As a battery powered device it is not very reliable. Try using USB-power cable. then it is much more responsive.

I'm using two Fibaro motion sensors. They work as expected (except tamper detection which is not used by LMCE atm). With the latest lmce-updates brightness level can be used in the state field. I'm testing this right now.

Getting them to work was a bit time consuming. I had to wake them up several times manually to let my Aeon stick get all the needed device info over the mesh network.

In my OZW setup I disabled polling completely. There were too many messages flying around and RTT were very high.

Using 10.04 and ZWave is not a good decision. 12.04 and Zwave is much better.

My hints:

- wake up device (3 button presses) 2-3 times
- be patient, battery powered devices are not so responsive
- check Advanced Zwave page, if device has been fully configured
- check Advanced Zwave page, if device has "values".
- check ZWave.log if the device reports values (especially brightness and temperature) to the correspondend LMCE-devices
- check node instances, e.g. temperature ist instance 1 ("12/1"), brightness is instance 2 "12/2",  motion has no instance ("12").

Don' mind.  ;)

My postfix is running fine. I did not manage to let it fail again in resetting postfix directory. Now when I fill out the blanks on web admin "main.cf" etc. are created successfully.

BUT:
If postfix service is not running web admin fails to send test email. Config files have been created. A simple postfix start (or restart) command after "Update" is pressed should help.

I think this was the main problem for me. My postfix was not running because of misconfiguration (I cannot recover exactly what was wrong) and so web admin failed to send test email.

Short Answer: NO

Not to be a jerk, but these companies have no interesting in making their viewers available for linux. The best route (for me) was to just create a netflix / amazon scenario and control it like i do PS3 or other external media. Via the orbiter.

Hope this helps

In Kodi there is an amazon instant prime addon that is working fine. ATM I'm using my Kodi-based rpi2 with this addon. So it could work in LinuxMCE, too....

I reconfigured my conf files already so I cannot make a diff. I do not know exactly what was messed up anymore. It was a bunch of things that were wrong.

Let me recover some things:

- None of my settings from web admin ("email setup") could be found in /etc/postfix conf files. Nothing.

for example (I'm using googlemail):
- transport contained "[]:" instead of "[smtp.gmail.com]:587"
- sasl_passwd did not contain a user name or password. "[smtp.gmail.com]:587" was missing, too.
- in main.cf there was no correct "relayhost" (again "[]:" instead of "[smtp.gmail.com]:587")
- several security related settings in main.cf were wrong (TLS, certificates etc.)

I think web admin is not talking to config files at all....


@posde:
I'm not a developer, I'm just trying to give some hints to solve problems someone has ("quick fix"). Please do not tell me, that hints do not help. If my hints are not helpful I will stop sharing my experiences in this forum.

I've got it working, but I had to configure some conf-file manually (some google searching helped me). Configuring email only in webadmin does not work (for me).

The right place to start is /etc/postfix.

You should check main.cf (relayhost, tls-settings, certificates,network protocol) sasl_passwd and transport.

After configuring sasl_passw and transport you have to do a postmap (one for sasl_passwd and one for transport.

At last postfix restart (not reload) and things are working.

Now you can use general info plugin to send emails.

If it is not working check /var/log/mail.log.

Installation issues / 12.04: invoke-rc.d broken on MDs?
« on: April 26, 2015, 06:44:53 pm »
Hello there,

in 12.04 there are two different versions of invoke-rc.d  in /usr/sbin/

-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root    70 Apr 19 13:47 /usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 11308 Jul 26  2012 /usr/sbin/invoke-rc.d.orig

But those files are only on the diskless MDs. On the core there is only one invoke-rc.d in /usr/sbin/.

The ones on the MD are not working. So the (e.g.) the script "StartVDRClient.sh" does not work properly. The two ones one the MDs do not even return an error code (!).

Can someone confirm this is a bug?

Feature requests & roadmap / Integration of streaming sites?
« on: April 26, 2015, 04:13:23 pm »
Hello there,

video streaming sites like watchever, netflix or amazon instant video are getting more important these days. I would really appreciate a better integration of those streaming sites into LinuxMCE without using the web browser.

At the moment I'm using those sites via appletv or via apps integrated into my Panasonic smart tv.

Personally I'm using the classical satellite tv less and less....

I'm having the same trouble.

Not sure:
StartVDRClient.sh was modified. The new variable XINE_IP stays empty.

Users / Re: Pulse Eight HDMI CEC - Port?
« on: March 09, 2015, 06:19:01 pm »
I had to pause my investigation for a while.  ;)

cec-client -l says

ERROR:   [            3533]     error opening serial port '/dev/ttyACM0': Couldn't lock the serial port
ERROR:   [            3533]     could not open a connection (try 1)

four times.

In the pulse eight forums I found something about permissions and groups for "/var/lock", "/run/lock" and "/dev/ttyACM0" which I checked already.

The port /dev/ttyACM0 cannot be locked whether by root nor by normal user.

Still no solution.

I need help to get this working. I followed the instructions in the wiki.

I plugged in the HDMI-CEC-adaptor (in my diskless MD) and manually created "CEC-Adaptor" under my MD. "CEC Embedded Transmit" and "HDMI-CEC Remote" have been created by LMCE after that.

Then after a reload I created "Generic HDMI-CEC TV", "Generic HDMI-CEC Audio (AVR)" and "PS3/4 (HDMI-CEC)" manually.

MD is connected to AVR (input), PS3 is connected to AVR (input) and TV is connected to AVR (output).
The channel configuration is as shown in post #1.

Problem:
- MD is not shown in Viera link menu on the TV
- Remote (Panasonic) does not do anything


What I did:
- changed HDMI cables
- connected PulseEight directly between TV and MD (without AVR).
- tried different channels/ports in web admin
- checked, that "CEC-Adaptor" has the correct COM-Port in web-admin

How can I debug this?
Any hints?

Users / Re: SPDIF in 12.04 please help! [solved]
« on: February 02, 2015, 01:34:43 pm »
I finally did not get it to work with my old graphics card. I decided not to invest any additional time in that problem.

I swapped my graphics card (nvidia 8400GS) into Nvidia GT210 in order to use Audio over HDMI without additional cables and disabled onboard sound. It worked OOTB.

It might have been an defective SPDIF- interface card or something else....
