2.) I can choose in my EIB-thermostats two (or more) states; like warm and cold. That is quit good, because you can change the temperature with only one button-press. But in lmce-thermostates i only can choose a temperature; like 20°. Does anyone know if it is possible to change the termostate-state with lmce?

i solved it today. the solution is: you have to add a climate scenario and add a EIB_Write - Command. With this parameters: group-adress for the thermostat, 1 for warm - 2 for cold and as data type you have to choose 6.

i have a working lmce system with one core/hybrid and one media director. I've connected my EIB system to the core. After a lot of hard work i figured out how to connect it, but there are some more "troubles".

1.) I want to send the date/time every 10 minutes from the core to the EIB. I need this because my thermostats have a internal clock but these clocks don't work very well - so you need to send the time to synchronize all thermostats. My question is: in wich format should i send the date/time? I tried nearly everything - but nothing works...

2.) I can choose in my EIB-thermostats two (or more) states; like warm and cold. That is quit good, because you can change the temperature with only one button-press. But in lmce-thermostates i only can choose a temperature; like 20°. Does anyone know if it is possible to change the termostate-state with lmce?

3.) Is it possible that lmce listen to the bus and change the state's of the lights, drapes, thermostates? Because everytime i switch on the light by the switch lmce don't know this and show the wrong state.

Is anybody else using EIB with lmce?

Thanks in advance,

thanks, but it didn't work. Do you use the orbiter-softphone? Or should i buy a hardphone?

has anybody lmce - asterisk with sipgate (i use for austria) successfully running?

I set up my Core/Hybrid, one MD and the phone line. Everytime when i call my sipgate number from my mobile phone i get a female voice who tells me that "all circuits are busy".

Do i have to use a hardphone?

best regards

Users / RC1: MythTV crashes
« on: July 31, 2007, 09:20:33 am »

when i watch TV under UI2 and press F7 to show up the menu it seems that MythTV chrashes. The video stops and everything is very slow - i can only press "Off" and start MythTV again. When i watch a DVD or Video everything works perfect, i can watch the movie and use the menu at same time. Does anyone else has this problem?

Second question, is it possible to use MythTV with sasc-ng ( I need it in austria for the local TV-Station ORF because i can't use my Haupage WinTV Nova-T USB2 Stick.

thanks in advance

Hi Kir,

thanks for the advice! It worked!

So, there is only one problem that has to be solved :)


Installation issues / LMCE 1.1 RC1: 2 Problems
« on: July 28, 2007, 02:28:04 pm »

first of all: this release is much better than the others. But i also have two problems:

1.) I have a Skystar2 for DVB-S - this card works very good. But i also need DVB-T, so i bought the Haupage WinTV Nova-T USB2 Stick. I've downloaded the correct firmware but it doesn't create a frontend?!?! Dmesg output is:
dcerouter_23319:/# dmesg |grep dvb
[   13.479103] dvb-usb: found a 'Hauppauge Nova-T Stick' in cold state, will try to load a firmware
[   13.531084] dvb-usb: downloading firmware from file 'dvb-usb-dib0700-01.fw'
[   14.162170] dvb-usb: found a 'Hauppauge Nova-T Stick' in warm state.
[   14.162230] dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to the software demuxer.
[   14.370884] dvb-usb: no frontend was attached by 'Hauppauge Nova-T Stick'
[   14.370891] dvb-usb: Hauppauge Nova-T Stick successfully initialized and connected.
[   14.370908] usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_dib0700

How can i create this frontend??

2. I also have a lot of EIB Devices (lights, drapes, ...). This devices are connected with the serial port. It worked great for the last 4 months (but not with LMCE, i used Pluto). When i go in the Web-Admin to Configuration->Interfaces and choose "EIB" I can't change my serial port. There is only a message "No serial port found". But why? I have a serial port - it works very fine with pluto. What can be the error?

Thanks in advance and please forgive me my bad (austria-) english. :-)

Users / Some EIB-questions
« on: May 07, 2007, 12:56:41 pm »

since 3 weeks i live in my new house - full of EIB - stuff Very Happy
After some troubles to connect with the linuxmce Server it is working really great - (i had a wrong BCU)
But now there are some questions:

1.) I can't put my lights on the floorplan. They are not in the list. Thermostats are working. Does anybody know how to put the lights on it?

2.) When i dimm my light to 50% with linuxmce it works very fine. Then i turn on the light with my light-switch (EIB) - this works also. But when i then try to dimm my light 10% less it goes to 40% and not 90%. The reason is: linuxmce don't update the state of the light - switch when i change it with the EIB-Switch. Is it possible to listen to the bus an update the state of the light-switches? (the same problem occours with drapes)

3.) I need to send every hour the recent Date/Time to the bus because i have to update the Clocks in the Thermostats. My idea was to make a new Timed Event and send the Date/Time from the lmce to the groupaddress. But i can send only a hardcoded String. What should use to send the system-time?

Yeah, i think that were the most recent questions. I'll hope somebody can answer some of them Smile

hi mario,

yes, you are right. This is the KNX stuff...
I use it with the BERKER Datenschnittestelle. But you have to use the version with the FT1.2 protocol!!!

Installation issues / Re: UI2 and MythTV Problems
« on: March 27, 2007, 11:04:03 pm »

i just found in the log files of my MD this:

Code: [Select]
03/27/07 22:42:59 (server)  Child device (56) was configured but the startup script (GeForce_or_TNT2) is not available in /usr/pluto/bin.

Maybe my UI2 don't work because there are no startup scripts? Where can i find this?

LMCE had been working fine for me with non-alpha blending UI2 until last night.  When I rebooted my box it brought be back to the mangled screen that we have all run into.  I tried changing back to UI1 and that didn't help, so I assumed that it must be a problem with my xorg.conf.pluto file.  I noticed that use "EDID" flag was set to false in the config.  I'm using an nvidia 6600GT and I'm connecting to a 720p LCD thru DVI.  As soon as I changed the use "EDID" flag to true it started working again.  To my surprise, I was then able to change the mode from UI1 to UI2 alpha-blending and it worked.  UI2 with alpha-blending is a 'HUGE' improvement over UI1 or the standard UI2.  The UI appears to be just as responsive as before, and the transparency of the menus is wonderful.  I'm totally pumped about this project again.

But now I'm afraid to reboot.  Does anyone know if the xorg.conf.pluto files gets regenerated with each restart?  The reason that I'm asking is that I don't understand why UI2 was working before and stopped working after I restarted.

I don't know if the xorg.conf.pluto gets regenerated each restart, but i think so... The "EDID" flag didn't work with my nvidia 7600GS.  :(


Installation issues / UI2 and MythTV Problems
« on: March 26, 2007, 02:21:16 pm »

first of all i wanna thank you for this great Product!!

But i also have some questions:

1.) UI2: Has anybody this UI2 running? I always get the error with the "transparency manager..." The funny thing about this error is, i had the UI2 running with the original Pluto (Version on the exact same PC's.

2.) When i start MythTV (setup of mythtv was fine) i always get a black screen with the mouse pointer. No keys work and i can only kill this by remote with an Windows-Orbiter. I checked the log-files and i only get something like "device died..." with the device id of the mythtv-player. But i don't get an error why this device died. Any suggestion where i should look for a solution?

Yeah, that are my problems for now. This weekend i can test the EIB-stuff - i'll hope this work :-)
