Yes the license will provide a separate MD image and a Rpi2 compatible UPnP install too.


Great stuff.


Hi Andrew,

Just a query about the above FAQ.

Q: Will a Dianemo-Rpi2 Core/NC support a local MD & HDMI audio?

While the Rpi2 hardware will definitely support HDMI audio we do not currently plan to support MD functionality on the Core/NC itself. We don't think the performance will be adequate (we may revise this if tests prove performance is not a problem). But since adding another Rpi2 as an MD or as a UPnP Media player is simple and only costs an additional $35 USD we feel that’s an acceptable limitation.

will there be a different image for the Rpi2 as an MD?  Will this license cover the Rpi2 as UPnP Media player?

In Massachusetts, drivers are called "Massholes." :P

People in Ireland try to avoid using such terms!

But on topic i do think its a strange area for non open-source development people to get their heads around.  its a grey area around open-source and proprietary.

I'm sure some people would say UI2 is cooler!

Thanks for that Andrew i was thinking the USB version was no longer available.  I had read about the program information in your other forum posts, it looks like a great feature.

And again thanks for all the help in general!

Thanks for that.

It makes no sense at the minute so i shall have to get reading about the DCE devices.

Thanks for that Coley.  For me it would need to be the serial device as the USB version seems to have run its course as its no longer available from the Dusky site.

I am about 1/2 years away from a new build so i have started my research good and early.

Based in Ireland so sky is the only real option when it comes to TV (my area doesn't have UPC/Virgin)

Have spoken to Andrew about Dianemo as they seem to have the sky integration fairly solid but i would like to learn as much as i can about Linuxmce.  My programming skills are not great but i use a good bit of bash and python for scripting so the Dianemo DCE scripts are not too much of a strech, i worked on one for an Onkyo AV receiver but as i don't have dianemo or an onkyo receiver i couldn't really test it further.

Would you be able to send me the code for your template as i would like to see how it all hangs together.  I have no ruby experience and my C++ is from my college days but you never know!

Hi Guys,

I was just looking for a little clarification on the Dusky sky controller.

when i search the wiki for sky i came across two separate wiki pages for the dusky

 http ://


 http ://

Now the first article states that only the serial controller is working not the USB and the second page is spawned from a large thread on the forum
 http http://://,11587.msg86946.html - which states that the USB version is now working but the serial version is untested.

So my question really was are both of these usb/serial supported?

Thanks in advance

NB I had to put a space in the links after http as i was allowed to post a link.  Sorry if this is against the rules but they are all internal links to linuxmce
