Users / LinuxMCE in Google Search - "may be compromised"
« on: March 31, 2013, 12:33:39 pm »
Hi guys,

Just about to download a fresh LinuxMCE ISO so searched for linuxmce download in Google and it showed the LinuxMCE site "" as possibly compromised.

Someone might want to look into this and get the site checked and removed from Google's naughty list.  If the site was actually compromised any downloads could be tainted with a trojan or some such.


Developers / #1438: Make qOrbiter Play Media - Scope request

Hello golgoj4,

I'm sorry for causing this outburst:

#1438: Make qOrbiter Play Media

Comment (by golgoj4):

 No, and stop asking. Tickets are not for annoying people to bug me.
 Tickets are for actual contributors. So stop wasting dev time making me
 think you were going to contribute anything usefull. Seriously.

 -tha management

I'm just used to collaborating with colleagues on projects by using comments on JIRA issues when something isn't clear for me or linked to design docs on the wiki.

That said, it was a genuine request for the scope of ticket. Having just finished rewiring my house with structured mains and low voltage wiring, my LinuxMCE installation and development time has opened up.

It's hard to know quite where to invest time hence why I asked about something that excited me, especially when it's being developed on a platform that I'm experienced with (Android and C++).

Soo.. is media playback merely to support previews or some halfway house between an Orbiter and an Android MD?

Thanks for your time,


Users / Local Lucid 10.04 Package Repo Cache
« on: December 06, 2011, 02:56:58 pm »

I'm going to be getting heavily into LMCE soon after Christmas. I've rewired a house so all lighting control, audio cables, alarm, video, network and usb cables etc etc. are in place.

My problem is my ADSL is capped. I'd like to stay as close as possible to bleeding edge and have read that any changes are causing all the packages to be rebuilt.

Would it be possible to set up a local repo and build the packages on it for myself?

I envisage the process something like as follows set as a cron on my local proxy:

Code: [Select]
svn up
`magic packaging code`

Then I'll be able to just change the /etc/hosts file on my core/md's to point the dns at my local proxy of the packages.

It'd probably help quite a bit for development too. I'd be able to easily switch svn to my own repo and back when testing was done.

Thanks for your time,


P.S. or have I totally got confused about how the packaging works and the package files themselves don't get changed just the meta data, in which case a simple well tuned http proxy such as squid would work just as well?

Developers / libCEC USB -> HDMI-CEC
« on: November 11, 2011, 06:14:42 pm »
Hi there, long time reader, first time poster,

Typically, having just cabled my house with HDMI & USB to TV points and running back to the loft so I can install TV's and USB IR receivers, I then come across a USB -> HDMI-CEC device. It's from a company called Pulse Eight which seems to be XBMC focussed. I a link on mythtv-users.

There's a library called libCEC and a hardware USB -> HDMI-CEC component costing about £30/$50/€35.

Has anyone come across these devices?

Doing a little reading in this thread about limited buttons over CEC I'm not sure how useful it'll be. But it seems good enough for the XBMC/MythTV crowd!

At a quick glance seems to be able to convert the button presses from the TV remote into LIRC format.. just need to see if enough buttons are passed through to make it worthwhile?


P.S. apologies for lack of clickable links. I'm not allowed apparently!
