Note: Due to the way Apple handles stuff outside of their store, you need to provide your UDID to golgoj4 to allow the ipa to run on your system.

Hi Golgoj4,

I sent you a PM with the relevant info. Just checking if you got it.

Thanx

Download any ubuntu 14.04 and do the network install as root.

Code: [Select]
wget -q https://git.linuxmce.org/linuxmce/linuxmce/raw/master/src/install-helpers/mce-install.sh
chmod +x mce-install.sh
./mce-install.sh

Hi Posde,

I was allways under the impression that we had to Install Kubuntu and net install LMCE and not Ubuntu.... I know they are similar, but just to make sure we don't lead the newbie down the wrong track....

Vytron21,

I have a Dianemo License and Dianemo system up and running. BUT as stated earlier in this thread, the support for Dianemo is no longer on this Forum. If you need support you will have to email them directly. Dianemo is still very much "alive" and they still exist, but more on a commercial level. As for Features.....
  • My biggest gripe is that with Dianemo you can only use a RPi as a HDMI CEC controller and NOT as an MD (Media Director) where as with LMCE you can use RPi as an Media Director.
  • Dianemo has a "NICE" Athena UI - But LMCE has the Qorbiter, which in my opinion is way better
  • Since Andrew (From Dianemo) left the support/feedback for Dianemo is non existent on the Forum. LMCE you get helpful responses fairly quickly and almost allways more than one person willing to help
  • Everytime you change you network card or Motherboard on Dianemo you have to email them to update the MAC Adresses in the License. One License can only be installed on one Server. LMCE you can install on as many as you want to.
.

I'm sure there are more pro's and cons to both systems, but those are the ones that come to mind right now. This is just my 5c worth.

HI Guys & Gals (IF any here)

The question that is allways asked, what version can we use of LMCE now? I see the poll has options for LMCE 1604 and 1404, and last snapshots are January and February respectivly. But the Wiki indicates that 1204 and 1404 is still pre alpha. I havent been here for a while and decided to start up my LMCE box again and implement it. (As I now own my own House. I can finaly do as I please :-) )

Apologies fro the stupid questions  ::)

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
Quote
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
Quote
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
