Feature requests & roadmap / INSTEON Hub Item# 2242-222
« on: Today at 06:06:54 am »
Anyone have any experience with the Insteon Hub? Link @ bottom.
I haven't seen many posts about Insteon lately. 
I'd like to purchase one of the starter kits but the all come with the hub instead of the USB/Serial plug in anymore.

Am I looking at this the hard way? Does everyone use Z-Wave?

Thanks,

Users / SabNZBD+ - Couch Potato - and SickBeard
« on: August 20, 2012, 06:48:43 am »
Just got 10.04 beta up and running. - Had left the project for a few months due to personal reasons - ... The wife was bitching about unfinished projects.. and not the computer kind!!!

Any who...

Stumbled across the following link

http://www.howtoforge.com/the-perfect-media-server-ubuntu-11.10-sabnzbd-sickbeard-couch-potato-headphones-serviio

Ok so i know that we a technically working from the KDE DM for the dependencies but I worked through the steps and was able to get Sabnzbd, CouchPotato, and SickBeard all running along side our trusty LMCE messaging system.

They all talk back and forth through the API.

My questions are

1. Would anyone be interested in WIKI pages that detail individual projects and the edits I had to make to get the processes to run root - which were not much but it is worth noting for the noobs (self included)

2. I am not all that good with HTML but I would think that it would be easy to put links to the localhost URLs on the main page so that an end user would only have to load http://localhost and click into each project?

3. If it is possible to install these pieces after the fact would it be possible to install them on the uptake? Each project is not but a few meg each. In total the ISO is 2.5 gig - drop in the bucket size wise.

4. The easy part - Put links in the computing tab to access the URLs?

I know we don't talk about ****** (self edited for Hari's sanity) but these are some awesome apps that utilize that service.

Users / ***** / *** file......
« on: October 08, 2011, 04:24:09 am »
Ok

I know I know,  The first rule of ****** is you don't talk about ****** - but...


Has anyone one given any serious thought to uploading LMCE to a ****** server somewhere?
I am currently DL the final release of 8.10 and its currently at 350kB/s.
My ****** speeds are usually in the 1.0 to 1.2 MB/s range and I'm only on 12meg Uverse.
I'm not sure how many people it would help but I could look into uploading after I finally get it.
Also a good ole fashioned *** file would probably help folks out as well.
Never created one but I'm willing to learn if it would help.

Any thoughts?

Users / Ethernet Commands for networked DirecTV boxes
« on: May 21, 2011, 06:26:31 am »
Ok...

After some reading, searching, head scratching, etc... I have stumbled upon some command strings that work for most advanced DirecTV receivers.  I'm not sure how to implement this into a template but the one out there for the HR24 did not work for me at all. If someone would point me at an article explaning how to get these commands to work with LMCE I would gladly create a template for the HRXX and HXX (excluding the H20 series of course - no network port).

Commands can be sent by sending a simple HTTP line. such as

http://192.168.50.13:8080/tv/tune?major=202&minor=65535

All a person would have to do is change the IP address to the correct one for their box and the STP would change to channel 202.

The following line is a template for the HTTP string.

http://192.168.50.13:8080/remote/processKey?key=guide&hold=keyPress

It sends the "guide" command to the STP listed in the IP field.

The commands power, poweron, poweroff, format, pause, rew, replay, stop, advance, ffwd, record, play, guide, active, list, exit, back, menu, info, up, down, left, right, select, red, green, yellow, blue, chanup, chandown, prev,0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, dash, and enter can be substituted for the word guide.
