Users / Can I resize web Orbiter ?
« on: January 15, 2008, 09:21:46 pm »
Hi,

I'd love to try web orbiter on 640x480 3Com Audrey gadget. But I guess it would need that size of Orbiter with it, but I couldn't find web orbiter on Orbiters page to select screen size...

Also, since various devices can connect to Web Orbiter, is it somehow possible to change it's settings according to type of client that connects and can it be customized on any way (to somehow dictate web page template to get different position of buttons, etc...)


Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

Users / Playing with 2 x-lite clients and video calls under LMCE
« on: January 14, 2008, 04:00:11 pm »
Hi,

I'm working on telephony features in new house that is based on LMCE... I have 3 entry points in telephony : doorphone, GSM incoming line, and IP telephony. I will probably describe how to do such setup soon, but currently I'm trying to get/test video capabilities of current system.

I use 2 x-lite clients (thanks for recomendation from Andrew). Since video telephony is not supported on Orbiter phones, I'm trying to do it with windows clients (it would be nice to be able to make video call from work to home office with x-lite clients on both sides)...

In near future, I also sincerely hope, that we will be able to get video telephony going on embedded Orbiter phones (they are based on linphone already, and newer version of LinPhone supports Video !!!!)...

But in the mean time, I play with window clients, and I spot that video is transferred only in one direction - only from calling party to end point and not vice versa...

I have also posted to asterisk mailing list, but maybe there are also some experienced Asterisk guys in here....

Any advice, hint ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

I have done following :

Users / Adding softsqueeeze as LMCE's player
« on: January 14, 2008, 09:51:57 am »
Hi,

I just tried to add softsqueeze to fake LMCE to think it's HW player. I sent detection message and it got "detected", but it seems that it's not controllable through LMCE. Something is different, so it doesn't work. But it would be nice to have player on your laptop winPC, that could be synchronized with HW squeezeboxes and controlable from LMCE....

Anyone with more experience doing this  ?

Users / Squeezebox not recognized plug'n'play
« on: January 11, 2008, 09:40:13 pm »
Hi,

I've aded brand new Squeezebox to LMCE's lan, it got ip address from DHCP, but after that nothing happened (neither on hybrid Orbiter, neither on other winxp PC with Orbiter running). I've done this :

1. Set squeezebox to dhcp
2. connect to LAN
3. it gets ip address of 192.168.0.191
4. then nothing happens (I'm expecting screen to appear on Orbiters)...

I'm attaching two logs below.... What is wrong ? (Have described here also : http://mantis.linuxmce.org/view.php?id=3802)

I have also another problem - in the meanwhile I'd like to add squeezebox to system manually - but don't know how to do it (is it Slimserver first, and then SB as child, or somehow different - can any user with squeezebox help in setting it up manually ?

Users / What softphone to use for external winxp client ?
« on: January 11, 2008, 01:06:11 pm »
Hi,

I'm slowly beggining to put new LMCE system in my new demo house with all needed functionalities. I'm about to work on adding telephony features.

I'm stuck with selection of best softphone to be used on laptop on remote locations, to be client for LMCE's Asterisk...

What I'd like to see is also video functionality. Currently I'm considering Linphone (it supports video and our Embedded Orbiter phones are based on that platform - so I guess we could eventually see also embedded video phone on MDs ? )...

But I have problem connecting it to Asterisk - it also has lack of support for phone books, etc...

What softphone do you you most easily inside and outside your local network ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

Users / Asterisk not started under 704 ?
« on: January 11, 2008, 09:42:26 am »
Hi,

I have pretty untouched 704 installation.
I spot that Asterisk is not running at all (ticked that option on Core page)

Asterisk wrapper says :
Quote
01   01/11/08 9:32:26.284      failed connecting to asterisk manager <0xb68f8b90>
01   01/11/08 9:32:31.287      failed connecting to asterisk manager <0xb68f8b90>
01   01/11/08 9:32:36.291      failed connecting to asterisk manager <0xb68f8b90>

It seems that Asterisk is not started at all - if I run it from command line, then wrapper connects and seems to be fine...

Where can I check why Asterisk is not running by default settings ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

Users / Transferring main hard disk content to bigger disk ?
« on: January 08, 2008, 07:07:46 pm »
Hi,

I have 320G IDE hard disk that my hybrid boots from. I have another fresh 500G ide hard disk and would like to transfer content to it, and replace smaller disk completely...

Any easy procedure to do that (regarding different size of disks - partitions) ?

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

as promised here (http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=3609.msg20529#msg20529), I talked to Chris (Pluto developer) and asked about current state of adding support for showing data for various devices on Orbiter floorplans. It seems that this interests more and more LMCE users, since currently only very limited number of devices can be properl shown and controlled from floorplans.

Chris agreed to help with necessary info - originally Eugene was meant to code this, but he cannot do that... Chris added few comments on this mantis thread for a start :

http://mantis.linuxmce.org/view.php?id=3456

I'd be glad for your comments and if there is anyone willing to contribute work in this direction. Chris will help with all info needed - he claims that it's pretty straight forward... He will respond to mantis thread notes...

The whole idea is pretty simple (no new events or whatever). Just ability to add another device data to device templates that would specify what will be shown on floorplan (if at all) - this could be another device data entry or just simply device state... Orbiters will refresh that info every few seconds and I think this is good enough...

I also described few more info about how Orbiters show info for devices on floorplan (but don't know if that info applies) :
http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Adding_support_for_floorplan_devices

Anyone willing to help and work with Chris ? Any other opinion ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

Hi,

when you install lmce, you get to lighting section and if you have ZWave for instance, there is automatic procedure for determining proper location for all autodetected light modules...

I wonder about internals of that procedure... How is it implemented ? Is it "external" implementation or is standard procedure that you can use also from other automation devices ?

Anyone with more insight into this ?

Thanks in advance,

Developers / Contributing device templates and other changes into "710"
« on: December 26, 2007, 07:08:22 am »
Hi,

I've made pretty complete GSD template for Marantz SR line of rs232 audio receivers. If I remember right, there is alyways a headache on upgrading LMCE if you have local changes in your sql database. Also, I'd like to enahnce it, so I'm curious if somehow this one can enter new 710 version of LMCE...

I also have implemented pretty complete support for other automation devices (blinds, drapes, thermostats, etc....) and have made some simple changes on their templates (so for instance they can be shown on floorplan, controlable from home automation interfaces, etc....) that I'd also like to contribute....

With my previous experience with Pluto, I ended up having local changes not entered into main database for over a year - so I'd like not to repeat this with LMCE...

Maybe I can also make sql dump and someone can review changes....

Please give me advice, what to do I(either to contribute now, or wait for release and contribute after that...) ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

Hi,

I'm about to purchase Squeezebox, but I'm not sure what features are exactly supported under LMCE at the moment ...

I know it behaves like audio media player, but I wonder if speech TTS announcements can also be played on it ?

I also have read that squeezeboxes can be synced between themselves, and same for Xine players - but can squeezebox be in sync with Xine ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Hi,

I have iptv system at home with ISP and amino settopbox. Recently, support for recieving ip tv channels has been added to mythtv (in shape of Freebox TV addition). With this one I can easily receive iptv streams directly and also record them and use them as normal channels received over analog antenna input on my pvr500...

http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/FreeBox

Since we've got experienced mythtv developer in our community (Daniel).... Any chance that this functionality will be in 710 release ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Hi,

we now have ability to customize photo screen saver to show pictures from particular directory. Is it hard to extend it to act like a photo viewer that can be started from media browser on Orbiter as well ? I guess we need a way to intercept media browser messages and then start photo screen saver with files that are currently selected...

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Developers / Complete rewrite of template for Marantz Audio receivers
« on: November 13, 2007, 04:49:18 pm »
Hi,

I've already contributed template for Marantz SR5600 audio receivers (don't know for sure, but the same template could probably be easily used also on other models from Marantz that have rs232 connector). But since it didn't get into Pluto's main database, I've decided to rewrite it completely for the LMCE system. The whole procedure is currently being updated on Wiki page : http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Marantz_SR5600


But I have a problem :

- when I try to add MEdia scnearios for it, it's painted in red and beside text appears :
Quote
Devices in red do not have any media types set on the A/V Properties page or they are not assigned to this entertain area.
and I cannot add any media scenario for that device. It has assigned room and EA, so I really have no clue what is wrong...

Any ideas ?


- I wonder if I can contribute template and how to do it to main LMCE database, so others will be also able to use it ? I'm interested in this, cause very shortly, template for LG LCD TVs and Plasmas will follow...

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

Developers / Audio only Xine player for lmce
« on: November 13, 2007, 04:41:38 pm »
Hi,

let me introduce the idea I'm thinking and working on for a long time. In my new house, Core is used also as main Whole house audio source and I think that in this case it's much cheaper to use more sound cards (or one with multiple stereo outputs) so I can play for instance 4 independent stereo channels. Patching existing Xine player is not so hard (I've done this already back in Pluto system, but the patch didn't get into codebase). Now I'm willing to repeat this work, cause I think that this would be usefull also for others...

Here's my plan:
- I'd like to use Video Setting parameter - so if it is set to none, than Xine player will be use only as audio player (it won't have it's own window, etc...)
- I'll extend Audio settings parameter so user can specify on which alsa device:channel output will go

- there is one major problem that was present in Pluto and probably still exists in LMCE. There is no simple way to add such player to setup, to be able to control it from Orbiters - currently dirty and inefficient workaround is possible - you create "dummy" MD and then use ID from that MD as ID of our player.

To make long story short, solution we need to have some general way is ability to of adding general media players to LMCE system. Currently exactly same functionality is already implemented for Squeezebox players. When you add them, then you are asked for where is your device located and then all needed media scenarios are created so you can start using device right away.... But I suspect this is the work of particular plugin for those devices, cause nothing similar could be repeated for any other media player. For instance, it would be nice if I start Xine player that connects to DCERouter for the first time, same sequence of device addition could be started and Xine player could be used right away...

But back to my plan. Under Pluto, one could pull down sources, compiles some minimal amount of them, recode and compile Xine player and binary could be added to working system to be tested. Are we on the same level with LMCE now ?
Can we start contributing code ?

I'd love to hear your opinions... There is also some similar work done with Jack audio server, but not sure if this is the same, similar or different thing...


Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.
