Users / Touch screens
« on: November 22, 2010, 04:33:10 am »

Anybody else using touchscreens for the onscreen orbiters?

I have acquired 2 touch screens, one will go in the kitchen and i really don't want to have another remote in that room, it will get lost :P

The touch screen works..... but.... it seems that when you touch, the touch will activate a click on the current screen AND a click on the next screen that comes up next. e.g. if i'm in remote and i "touch" the home button, it will go to the home screen, but it will also go to the lights screen (what's normally the "more" button). So it clicks on the current screen AND on the next screen. i would like to adjust this behaviour, but not sure where to look.

Can anybody shed some light,

Thank you,


Users / Garage door closer
« on: September 24, 2010, 05:48:15 am »

Trying to see what people are using for controlling their garage doors.

e.g. i want to make sure it's closed, especially at night with the ability to leave it open while working in the garage.

I've seen some "garage door closers" but was wondering if anybody had a nice LinuxMCE solution they used?

Thank you,


Users / Weborbiter on Palm TX not working
« on: September 24, 2010, 04:57:32 am »

I've made 2 weborbiter instances in webadmin, changed the listen port for the second one and i'm trying this on a Palm TX.

The screen comes through just fine, but i have not been able to select any menu item. The only thing that works is the yellow refresh and exit buttons.

I've reloaded the router.. restarted the core... but don't know why my screen touches are not going through.

Both weborbiters work fine from my pc.

Does anybody have a solution for this?



Developers / creating CM19A device
« on: August 30, 2010, 02:34:45 am »
ok need a little help please...

Created a device template for the CM19A, set whatever option were necessary for detection of the device, device gets found..... great. now the rest

Ran DCEGen -d 2149 for the device which created the desired c++ files, put in some simple commands just to test if it would work..

Next would be to compile the project and make sure it registers with DCERouter when i run it......

Compiling is were the problems start (well actually not sure if it is a problem)

I just ran make all and got the following errors which i'm not sure why, because i didn't change or add/remove any code. in any of the files that have the errors.

Users / AV Equipment in webadmin very slow to react
« on: August 19, 2010, 03:23:25 am »
Hey, just trying to see if anybody else has this problem i'm experiencing.

My setup 0810 works great everything plays, my md's do everything i want them too, lights.... etc

Now i tried to finish up and add all my equipment so lmce can take care of turning it on, tuning, etc... here is where the problem arises...
After adding the first device it takes forever for the second page to show up, then whenever i try to go back to the AV Equipment page it takes upward of 10-15 minutes for the page to show and sometimes longer.
I tried it from a laptop, from and md, from the core itself, but all react the same, just not sure why this would slow down the system this much.

Anybody else have this problem and maybe a fix?



Users / Wake up MD on reboot not working?
« on: August 10, 2010, 11:41:03 pm »

I have installed the June 26 snapshot and somehow the MD's do not wake up on a reboot of the core. I this a known issue, or just in my case? I have 2 Zotac Ion B-E boards, and this "used to work" in the June 1 snapshot that i know of.

Any settings i can check?


Users / Squeezeslave in 0810
« on: July 26, 2010, 06:22:00 am »

Does anybody have squeezeslave running in lmce 0810 with a USB audio card?

If so, could you please tell me which version you are running of:
what kernel

For Dianemo what versions are you all running and what kernel of 0710

Appreciate the help for some troubleshooting, i want to get this to work and create multiple audio zones in my house.

Thank you,


Users / changing device template ir codes
« on: June 24, 2010, 05:54:33 am »
I added a device for my Philips LCD tv and learned the IR codes (actually got the discretes and manually entered them). I forgot however to add the volume commands, so i go into webadmin templates, select my new template... add the volume control and tell it to "learn code"....

A new window opens and immediately another one that says "code learned"

no matter what i try, it keeps doing this, can i get around this?



Users / changing the defaults for media browsing
« on: June 21, 2010, 07:37:50 pm »
Is there a way that i can set the options for video media browsing.

I have some home videos which are tagged as such, i do not want those to show up regularly, just when i select the home video option (or filter). Normally all media is shown (makes sense), but i wish to leave these out for "normal" use.

So instead of showing ALL under genre, can i make a selection and save this as the new default?


Users / Picture media not showing up in orbiter
« on: June 21, 2010, 06:48:54 pm »
Somehow my nas picture folders are not showing up in the orbiter, the flickr folder is the only thing under pictures... but

My screensaver is showing pictures out of my media picture folders on my nas.
My video and audio media is showing up fine from the same nas.

I tried to resynchronize, but to no avail.

Does anybody know what i can do to fix this?



Developers / Noob question about using a builder
« on: June 17, 2010, 07:26:38 pm »
OK, sorry for the newbie question, but i'm getting confused about why i would need a builder.

Am i correct in saying a builder is needed to build the debs when something is changed in (say C++), then that package has to be rebuild and you can then install that package on your test core?

For UI enhancements, new devices, etc.. with HADesigner this is not necessary...... correct? you can just affect the "test" core itself and reload router and regen orbiters to see the effects?

We (in flight training) generally say no questions are stupid, but i kinda feel stupid asking.

Appreciate your comments


Users / Zotac Ion board works great with hdmi sound
« on: June 09, 2010, 09:18:28 am »
Hey all,

Just wanted to post my experience with the Zotac ION board as an MD.

I'm running a Zotac IONITX-C-U with the brick 90W PSU and 1Gb of memory.
As a case i used the M350, which can be mounted on the wall or on the vesa mounts of the monitor. Nice little case.

My Core is an old A7N8X deluxe board on which i added a gigabit nic. I installed the June 1, 2010 snapshot on the core as a fresh start. This also went very smooth.

PXE boot as advertised, just set the BIOS options where they need to be, look in the ZOTAC ION Wiki.

After boot in my case i got a black screen and had to press 3 (and wait) to get the AVwizard to show, after this i selected hdmi2 with 1080p on 1 MD and hdmi2 with 720p on the second.

MD 1 is connected to a 47" Philips LCD (1080p max resolution)
MD 2 is connected to a 65" Hitachi DLP (1080i max resolution) connected to a Onkyo TX-SR606 Receiver

For the sound i selected hdmi and went to tty2 (CTRL-ALT-F2) and made sure that all alsamixer channels were unmuted and the volume up. I instantly had sound through hdmi, i even got the 2 "advanced" sound options.

After it all installed and the orbiter was generated i had to reboot the md to make the onscreen orbiter show up.

Now everything worked as you expect, except a few items i had to install.

1st the Medibuntu key is not installed, so doing an apt-get update will complain, just run
Code: [Select]
wget && sudo apt-key add medibuntu-key.gpg && rm medibuntu-key.gpg
2nd the libdvdcss2 package is not installed and (some) ripped dvd's will not play, just run
Code: [Select]
apt-get install libdvdcss2
mp3's played fine, but other codecs might be needed.

Overall i had a "works OOTB" experience and it's great to see it work like that.

Thanks to all who worked on this,


my setup

Users / Timed and respond to event
« on: April 26, 2010, 05:18:20 am »
Hello all,

Trying to accomplish the following. I have an in ground pool and setup some Zwave switches to turn on/off my pool pump and Polaris pump. The Polaris pump should never be running if the pool pump is off. The switches work great when i do this manually, now i would like to automate it.

With that said. I would like to create an event (or multiple) that turns on my pool pump at say 10:00. Than i would want to turn my Polaris Pump on 2 hours after the pool pump is on and turn it off 3 hours later. Than at 1900 at night i want the pool pump to turn off again.

The only thing i could find was to make 4 timed events to do the above, but i'm not feeling good about the system not checking if the pool pump is on.... before turning the Polaris pump on.

Is there a way to make a timed event in response to a device state?

Any suggestions?

Thank you,


Users / Microphone port as capture device?
« on: April 04, 2010, 08:07:11 pm »
Can i use the Microphone port to capture an audio signal from my receiver's zone 2 and distribute in lmce?

e.g. playing the tuner over zone 2 on my receiver, feed it in the MD's microphone port and have it play on other MD's and/or devices around the house.

Thank you,


Users / Generic USB Camera not showing any video
« on: March 08, 2010, 03:10:33 am »

I followed the wiki and everything looks fine, but no video when going to the camera under security.
