Marketplace / Re: Dianemo Relationship with Andrew Herron (totallymaxed)
« on: November 13, 2015, 03:54:49 pm »
Afternoon Guys,

So I asked Dianemo regarding RPi, if they can be used as MD's, their answer
Quote
No they can’t. We actually do not now actively sell MD’s, now preferring customers to use Smart TV’s and our UPnP implementation. However, MD’s are still supported under x86 Nerve Centres for legacy systems but there are no ARM MD images and will not be in the future either.

HDMI-cec control

We have a RPi build for CEC on/off but not volume up/down (although we can do this with UPnP), we have no channel up/down support as this varies too much between TV models.

Thus it seems only use for RPi on Dianemo is HDMI-cec control.
And I recently purchased 2 RPi 2.

Regards
Karel

Hi Bulek,

I asked the same question and Steve's reply was

We will maintain a low key presence on the forum for now as we just don’t have the resources to commit the time Andrew did, which was largely outside of our working hours. For support in the future, you should email info@dianemo.co.uk and we will still help. This will not be a paid service but will be like on the forum, advice and configuration guidance. If anything further is required then we will agree any costs prior to the work.

Regarding reselling. If you are a competent installer and are confident in most aspects of building and configuring a system we can sell you packs of licenses which you can resell with your own hardware. First line support will be you/your company and we will only provide second/third (developer) support if needed.

I was one of the unfortunate users that purchased an "unauthorised" Dianemo license, however Steve was very understanding and has honoured my license  ;)

Hi,

Is the recommended install still net install? or has the dvd snapshots now been fixed?
And 1404 recommended?

Thanx

Thanx for that Phenigma,

If I correct the asound.conf, it works but when I reboot my changes are not stored.
Then if I do tests with aplay the audio plays, but nothing plays via orbiter. I copied the doorbell.mpg from the samples folder to the videos folder. But when choosing that only video plays with no sound :-(

Hi Guys, Been a while......

Firstly Apologies Hanafi, don't mean to hi-jack your thread, but I have a similar problem.  I cant get hdmi audio to work at all. I'm running Dianemo 14.04 though.

asound.conf
Code: [Select]
</etc/pluto/alsa/virtual_cards.conf>

pcm_slave.convert {
        @args [ RATE CARD DEV ]
        @args.RATE {
                type integer
        }
        @args.CARD {
                type string
        }
        @args.DEV {
                type integer
                default 0
        }
        pcm {
                @func concat
                strings [ $CARD "," $DEV ]
        }
        rate $RATE
}

pcm.spdif_playback {
        type plug
        slave {
                @func concat
                strings [ "convert:RATE=48000,CARD=spdif:0"
                        ",DEV="
                        {
                                @func refer
                                name defaults.pcm.iec958.device
                        }
                ]
        }
}

pcm.hdmi_playback {
        type plug
        slave {
                @func concat
                strings [ "convert:RATE=48000,CARD=hdmi:0"
                        ",DEV="
                        {
                                @func refer
                                name defaults.pcm.iec958.device
                        }
                ]
        }
}

pcm.asym_spdif {
        type asym
        playback.pcm "spdif_playback"
        capture.pcm "plughw:0"
}

pcm.asym_hdmi {
        type asym
        playback.pcm "hdmi_playback"
        capture.pcm "plughw:0"
}

pcm.asym_analog {
        type asym
        playback.pcm "plug:dmix:0"
        capture.pcm "plughw:0"
}
pcm.!default asym_hdmi

I suspect the problem is with the section pcm.asym_hdmi , "plughw:0" shouldn't it be "plughw:0,8" cause I can test audio by
Code: [Select]
aplay -D plughw:0,8 Front_Center.wavThat plays and I can hear "Front Centre" though my TV speakers that's connected via the HDMI cable. However if I play a mp3 file the same way, its distorted...... I must add that I had no Audio with AV-wizard or with Sarah.

I have also attached a pic of alsamixer. I cant seem to adjust audio levels..... or am I missing something????

Thanx in advance guys.  ;D

Morning Techstyle,

I have the similar experience with 1-wire. Mine is normally detected after I add a MD or a Device. So have gotten into the habbit of installing my 1-wire before installing everything else.
