Users / Syracruse area, car/rv aficionado anyone?
« on: February 22, 2014, 12:05:41 pm »
Please contact me via PM if you live in the Syracruse,NY area and would be willing to lend me a hand in checking out used RVs. I need someone to look at offers over there, before spending money on a ticket to fly over from Germany.

Just doing a quick poll to figure out what PVR, if any, people are using.

Feature requests & roadmap / UI Thoughts
« on: February 16, 2013, 01:52:42 pm »
We have an existing UI. And we have two ways of implementing the UI. Both are fairly similar, in that they present multiple scenario buttons grouped by areas of interest.

Thinking about this, rethinking about stuff users said in the past, and how *I* myself am using the system made me realize that a different paradigm might be more appropriate.

Do we really need all those canned buttons/scenarios?

On one side, it is great to have a consistent view, i.e. no matter what Orbiter people use in my home, they always have the same look and feel, find stuff easily, once they learned the Orbiter.
On the other side, there are times, when I think, wouldn't it be great to just have a couple of scenario buttons on the main page, tailored for the individual user. With the user having the ability to turn on/off stuff based on what s/he wants to see on the main page on this particular Orbiter, or for all his/her orbiters.
In our home, we do not use climate at all. And even when we start using it, I can't find a reason to have it available on the home page. On the other hand, it would be great to have more lighting scenario buttons available to the front page, and maybe more media scenarios. Others might respond, that they do not need any media scenarios, but only want lights and climate, so I think it would be wise to give the user the choice, what to display on the main menu. And by choice, I do not mean the ability to utilize HA Designer to redesign the starting page.

Thoughts, opinion?!

Users / MOVED: New LinuxMCE Documentation
« on: September 29, 2012, 02:37:44 pm »

Good day,

golgoj4 found a problem with snapshot 26131. Due a syntax error in /usr/pluto/bin/ line 115 alsa isn't setup properly. Anyone with a pluto-boot-script version 26131 will have this problem. The fix is easy. Either wait till around 5 p.m. CEST, or change line 115 in the above file to look like this:
Code: [Select]
if [[ "$AudioSetting" == "M" ]]; then

Sorry for the inconvenience.

SOLVED: The fixes are in the repo now. The later snapshots will be available in the next few hours.

Best regards

Peer Oliver Schmidt
Release Manager

Users / Never underestimate the power of real switches
« on: August 11, 2011, 08:25:59 am »
This morning SWMBO came to me, and asked me how to open/close a specific blind because all the Orbiter said something about network error. I told her about the wall switch, she remembered. Off she went.

A few minutes later I looked at one of the Orbiter (a WebDT) and saw it up and running, and wondered, why SWMBO said something about network errors...

End of story: There was a power outage that lasted longer than the UPS was able to carry the core. After the power was back up, the core came back and all the Orbiter came back to live. Never underestimate real switches.

Users / 710,810,1004 or what?

To gather some statistics, I'd appreciate it if people would mark what they are using at the moment. If, later on, you change your system, feel free to change your vote. Please specify your main system, not all the different test systems you are running.
