Installation issues / Re: Squeezeslaves on Core (Dianemo S)

Your Sound cards are detected and listed ok and everything looks to be configured ok too. aplay -l outputs;

But as soon as a squeezeslave starts up it dies. Which makes me think Squeezeslave is not happy with your USB sound card. Have you had these sound cards working before? Do you have a different card to use as a test of that theory?

Installation issues / Re: Squeezeslaves on Core (Dianemo S)
« on: April 05, 2013, 12:40:37 pm »
Hi Coley,
Thanks for the help with that, starting to make much more sense.
I used the Dianemo S wiki page [http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Dianemo_S#Adding_SqueezeSlave_Devices] i just reviewed the Linuxmce Squeezelave page and there are many more steps than what i have taken following the Dianemo page.  Particularly in relation to editing /etc/rc.local Without knowing the differences between Dianemo and Linuxmce in this instance, is it necessary to modify rc.local?

aplay -l returned no sound cards found

Thanks

We've automated much more of the process so thats why setup of Squeezeslaves is simpler in Dianemo. Sounds like you've missed a step out somewhere. After adding the Squeezeslave devices and filling in the device data did you do a reload and then run;

Code: [Select]
sudo /usr/pluto/bin/Start_SqueezeBox_Slaves.sh
If your still stuck...PM or email me with your installation ID and I will use Remote Assistance to take a quick look at your system.

All the best

Users / Re: Dianemo 12.04 Phone line
« on: April 05, 2013, 10:32:43 am »
As known, Dianemo still uses FreePBX/Asterisk for the phone system. However for me, configuring any form of phone line through the web interface (pluto-admin) fails to create Trunks,outgoing and ingoing routes. Does anyone know what I could do to manually add a Phoneline. The product in question is a SPA3102. I have no problem creating a phone line using LMCE 10.04,8.10.

Thanks for your time.


Hmm... can you confirm that you have updated your system recently?

All the best

Developers / Re: Building Dynamic Orbiters with JSON/AJAX/HTML5
« on: April 03, 2013, 03:20:11 pm »
I personally love the concept of using JSON/JSON-RPC for doing this as I've been doing web development for more years than I care to admit. It is ridiculously simple to implement clients for it and I can make my own integration services based upon any number of technologies. This is excellent. However, I've seen interfaces done wrong more than once and that made dealing with it a living hell.

My only problem at this point with LinuxMCE development has been getting a full development environment up and running to work on a small piece of code. I don't have the time to devote to getting a full dev environment going but I can contribute small things here and there like supporting new devices, etc. So, how would I quickly set up something to work with this project?

Your welcome to get involved at the Core/NC end if you'd like to or at the client end of things using your Web development skills. Post to this thread if you have ideas or questions etc.

All the best

Sometimes you may have a need to manage your IP cameras on a separate machine instead of your NC. This is usually driven by performance issues on a heavily loaded NC. We have added a section to the Dianemo Wiki that explains the steps required and have pushed out a companion Update that adds scripts to support this type of configuration;

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Dianemo_S#Adding_a_Standalone_Kmotion_based_Camera_Server_to_your_System

As usual please make sure you run the updater script to update your Dianemo installation before you do the above steps in the Wiki.

All the best

* posde is sure hari does not like his project to be associated with argonauts...

Ooops!...Argo is a movie :-)....Ago is Hari's project of course.

Well, totallymaxed initial statement hinted at: Dianemo will develop stuff inhouse, and once ready will open it for others, as opposed to what you are saying now... ;)

Starting this thread was an attempt to see how many people in the community had the relevant Web based development skills and would be interested in getting their hands dirty and get involved. Obviously the thread has an expanded scope now...but that was my initial intention nothing more.

To help people understand what we were planning I explained our intentions so that everyone understood where this was coming from. Therefore initially I thought that we'd do the first steps internally here... do some basic stuff using Uplinks thinking on this (which has been going on for some time) and then open it up a little to people who had the Javascript/JSON/JQUERY skills to work on actual Orbiter UI's. At the same time if anyone wanted to dig into the Core end of the code they could do that too. I did explain that it would be sometime before we would be ready with anything to test against based on our own internal development resources... but of course with Ago we may get there faster than anticipated.

However things have moved on and it looks like Hari and his Ago project are going to be the basis of what we all build on to create a 'bridge' to LinuxMCE/Dianemo Core's. So we're not doing anything behind 'the curtain' at all everything is perfectly in the open. As Uplink has said here already I don't see any of this as fragmenting development resources as no one as far as I know that has voiced an interest so far has the skill or the inclination to get involved in qOrbiter. To be frank one of the major reasons we like the Ago/Javascript/JSON approach is that it opens up Orbiter development to a much broader audience and free's anyone designing an Orbiter UI from the limitations of both yesterdays Orbiters and HA Designer. In addition our approach here further simplifies the skill-set required to work on Orbiters in that you don't need to understand anything more than standard Web 2.0 style development.

We think this approach has a lot going for it.

All the best

Andrew

PS sorry for the typo in the original post where i confused the movie 'Argo' with Hari's Ago project... Freudian slip ;-). Typo now corrected!

*me steps forward*

im a web guy for quite a while now ....
@work i create webpages based on TYPO3, using jQuery and jQuerUI as Javascript Framework. Sometimes a bit server administration stuff ...  thats it.
Im not too bad @ designing stuff (i reckon) ... ;-)

Cheers,
ochorocho

Great :-)

Keep an eye on this thread and join in the conversation if you can.

Welcome.

maybe we can join efforts with ago control and come up with an abstraction layer that hides the innards of DCE/ago control and talk the same JSON-RPC protocol. I've added JSON-RPC to ago control recently, this page describes the current protocol: http://wiki.agocontrol.com/index.php/RPC

It should be straightforward to add similar methods to the DCE RPC plugin. I'd volunteer to implement this.

I'm coming in late on the discussion on this but I think Uplink is warming to using JSON-RPC & seeing what we can do with ago ;-)

So joining efforts is exactly what we should do now we (or 'I' more likely!) understand your interested in much the same thing we are. If we can develop a common set of tools for Orbiter/UI building in LinuxMCE/Dianemo & ago that frees us all up from the current dependencies on PPL and also liberates us to build UI's that are not frozen in the past or reliant on the UI designer knowing anything more than some standard Web technologies like JSON/Javascript etc then that a big win.

What I'd like to see in this thread, in addition to the very important discussion about the Core/Backend technology, is some people step forward who have good Web based skill sets and have built projects around JSON/Javascript. In addition anyone who is willing to learn those skills and dig into building new Orbiter UI's using this stuff - lets hear from you too.

What we're discussing here will open up LinuxMCE/Dianemo/Argo development & allow a much broader group of people to participate in what we do here. And that can only be very positive development for the community.

Will it be fully compatible with LinuxMCE?

Can you describe the server-side architecture you are using?

What limitations, if any, should we expect to see in the finished version (relative to the current native orbiter feature set)?

Yes we intend to make this available to LinuxMCE and it will be GPL. There will definitely be a stage where it exists only in Dianemo...but that will short and will be before we open it up to a broader audience here. The idea is to get this broadly deployed and get as many people with UI Design/Web Developer skills using it as possible.

Other than what I have said already I can't say much more yet other than to say that the architecture will use JSON and will require client side Javascript code as you'd expect. As and when we have more specific details I will post them here and or on the wiki.

Re your question on limitations v 'Native' Orbiters; We don't expect or anticipate any limitations compared to existing Orbiters... in fact we expect the opposite of that in that you will be able to design new Orbiters on 'the fly' by just editing HTML/Javascript... the design/run/test loop should be very fast and dynamic. No regens will be required. Make a change in your Javascript code and test it. See the result. Adjust if needed and test again. Performance will be driven by the performance of your browsers Javascript engine and we really dont expect that to be an issue even on lightweight in wall panel style devices for example (we're testing one now with a full WebKit browser and in general terms it performs like an iOS device would.

Each Orbiter can have a different UI design deployed on it if that was a requirement... develop a small UI suitable for an Android mobile Phone or iPhone...its just a design problem not an engineering issue... it will be about defining how a tiny UI should be presented on such a device and performance will be like any other HTML5 based UI on that type of device. More efficient Javascript code will improve performance as you'd expect and it would be possible to write inneficient Javascript code and make your Orbiter perform badly of course... but then its just an issue of better coding to fix that.

Hope the above is helpful.

All the best

Developers / Building Dynamic Orbiters with JSON/AJAX/HTML5
« on: March 26, 2013, 11:54:21 am »
Here at Dianemo we're in the early phases of exploring the notion of building 'Next Gen' Orbiters in HTML5/JSON/AJAX. The idea being to enable anyone with some modern Web technology skills to be able to design & implement new Orbiter UI's in a Web browser. These Orbiters will not be restricted by the current Web Orbiter implementation or be based in anyway on those ie they will not be based around a series of big whole Orbiter screen bitmaps generated at the Core and displayed in the browser. They will be built & designed like any other HTML5 page.

At present we're in the embryonic stages of implementing some prototype devices at the Core that will expose JSON objects representing some simple devices eg On/Off Lights & Dimmable Lights etc. We're several months, at best, from having enough working to have anyone play around with this outside our team. However it would be useful to be able to gage how many of you with the right Web Development skills would be interested in being involved in testing this capability when we are ready.

So please drop a post into this thread if your interested in getting involved when we are ready and have the right skills (you will need to be familiar with building Web services/sites using JavaScript/JSON/AJAX/HTML5).

Also If you have questions about what we're doing in this area then by all means post them here too... I may not be able to answer every question as we're still figuring this out but I will do my best to answer as fully as I can.

All the best

Marketplace / Update available - Merged Video/Audio Rooms
« on: March 25, 2013, 05:32:04 pm »
We've released an update that makes it possible to locate a video & audio device in the same room. This enables you to have an MM, SmartTV or other UPnP device in the same Room as your Squeezeslave device allowing you to have the audio from the video stream routed to your Squeezeslave. This is particularly useful if your installation has in-ceiling speakers or other in-built speakers as part of your in-room audio setup.

See the new Dianemo wiki page section here for details; http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Dianemo_S#Merging_Video_.26_Audio_in_a_single_Room

As usual please run the updater script to make sure your system has the latest updates applied.

All the best

Hi,

I'm a bit disappointed with this enhancement :-( .

We've lost possibility to sort/browse music collection by filename that we were using for at least few years now. WAF (Wife Acceptance Factor) for our system is now much lower.... Any chance that user can retain/select older Audio collection behaviour ?

Right now, beside collection being organized by genre (domestic, foreign, pop,rock, ...) we also have certain directories where kids have stored their own mp3s. They are from different genres - how can I integrate that into collection without using Directory structure ? Can I use any other attribute for that to denote those files for daughter's files that can be easily selected from new interface ?

Regards,

Bulek.


We should have an update that add's sort by track name in the next few weeks.

All the best

Marketplace / Update available - Updated Intel support in AVwizard
« on: March 20, 2013, 04:09:53 pm »
We've pushed out updated support for Intel in the AVwizard over-night. This fixes and improves handling of HDMI setup in the AVwizard on Intel GPU based systems. The TV's EDID is ignored now, Better handling of HDMI output naming, we handle 1080p better now too and we fixed a bug which mean that xorg.conf was not getting written in certain circumstances and various other small bugs. Upshot is the AVwizard should work much better now on Intel GPU's.

As ever run your update script to update your system with this update and any other pending updates from us or Canonical.

All the best

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: mythtv Dianemo
« on: March 19, 2013, 05:06:29 pm »
Hello, Could you check if the actual Mythtv release used in Dianemo has this bug?

http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/10428
I'm receiving that ring buffer messages and we have problems with HD transmitions only.

Thanks in advance,

Hernan

**This is really the wrong section to post this**

We install the Mythbuntu package and you will receive all updates to this package as per a standard Ubuntu 12.04LTS install. Since this ticket was closed about 8 months back it will have already been fixed in the current package.
