Users / Making MythTV less persistent on "TV" launch???
« on: October 30, 2007, 05:43:16 pm »
Is there a way to get the MythTV wrapper to be less persistent about trying to force Live TV watching? Say I tell LMCE I want to watch TV, it launches MythTV and voila "MythTV is using all available inputs...." Okay, that's cool, no big deal... so STOP trying to force the TV launch. Is it missing the error feedback or something?

We often watch a recording while it is still recording. For instance, "Chuck" comes on and we know it is recording, but we need to finish doing errand X before sitting down and enjoying the show. The recording continues, for about 20 minutes, and THEN we decide to watch the recording in process only to have MythTV tell me that all inputs are in use again, and again...and again......and again.........and again............and again....

Am I missing the solution somewhere?  ???

Developers / NuVo Essentia/Grand Concerto information
« on: October 23, 2007, 11:30:07 pm »
I have searched the wiki and the internet in general and have found little in the way of documentation about the existence of NuVo serial control code already implemented. There are a few posts in the archives eluding to functionality with previous versions of Pluto, but no specifics. Has anyone ran across the actual coding anywhere in the source? If so, would you be willing to disclose this location or any information you have discovered.

I would love to get this working bidirectionally with these systems and am simply trying to reduce the retracing of steps already taken. According to NuVo, these systems have bidirectional control and have the capability of controlling other home automation solutioncs (e.g. HAI and Lifeware). I have downloaded the pdfs containing the serial control protocols for the Essentia and Grand Concerto systems, though with the recent re-design of the Essentia system I am unsure of any updated protocol as my file is several years old.

Thanks in advance.


Feature requests & roadmap / Integrated Recipes Module

I'll start by saying that I have rarely been as excited about something as I was when I first saw the demo video for LMCE. I anxiously await it's further development and maturity.

Some time ago there was development on a plugin for MythTV called MythRecipe. The progress of that plugin has all but died, but I believe the idea is grand and would be well suited for LMCE. It's the next step in having an LMCE system in the kitchen: recipes at your fingertips.

Recipe searches (by name, type, ingredients, etc.)
Digital cookbooks
Shopping list generation (and printing?)
Any other spectacular feature I can't think of right now...

Perhaps somebody will agree with me and the development can begin. I can't help much as I am hardly a programmer let alone a brilliant programmer like those that have brought Pluto and LMCE this far.

Once again, thanks for such a wonderful system with such great potential.
