Developers / Re: Working on PowerLinc USB, RCS TX15B Thermostat support
« on: September 18, 2007, 11:18:52 am »
Hi,

I also would like to contribute few things (to enhance Motion wrapper with new features, Audio only Xine player - to have multiple stereo outputs on Core, maybe even Zoneminder integration, Cybrotech home automation integration - have it running in Perl "proof of concept" driver, but would like to code it in c++)...

But I've read a lot about problems with compiling LMCe from source, etc...

I guess you have all overcome such problems and I'd kindly ask if you can post as much as possible about your work, so any other potential contributors can learn and developers community will grow...

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.

Developers / Can I make rs232 device plug'n'play and how ?
« on: September 09, 2007, 10:02:11 am »
Hi,

plug'n'play from LMCE(Pluto) is implemented this way :
- device searches for dhcp
- from MAC address device is identified and then further configuration steps are performed (mostly written Perl scripts that do the job).

Basically I'd like to do the same with rs232 device. Rs232 interface per se probably cannot be made plug'n'play, but there is a chance to do it over USB to rs232 dongles, cause they are detected when connected.

Can rs232 device be made plug'n'play ? If yes, any examples ?

Regards,

Bulek.

Users / Re: Interesting Core Hybrid Setup?
« on: September 09, 2007, 09:41:17 am »
Hi,

I think this would work. LMCE includes Mythtv, so majority of all docs apply also for mythtv under LMCE.....

Hi,

I'd love to read more details on your setup. AFAIK currently there is a problem running two Orbiters on same IP, but maybe experienced guy could get it working... I'd kindly ask you to post to Wiki and start a process of digging this problem up... Maybe it's not so hard....

Hi,

if I remember right, there is *43 internal number on Asterisk for simple echo test.... Maybe you'll hear your self.... One way audio could be also caused by some inproper NAT or Firewall setup...

Users / Re: Fiire Remote
« on: September 06, 2007, 03:14:40 pm »
Hi,

in my case Fiire would be more functional than 3button gyro, cause usually I use 32 inch lcd tv and LMCE is just one input that is shown on TV. So it would be nightmare to have 1 remote for LCD TV and other for LMCE. That's why probably I'd buy Fiire... But that's just my case.

But there is a point, that buttons are probably not easily distinguished for LMCE or normal IR use. I don't have a Fiire, so other would probably have more usable opinions.

Regards,

Rob.

Thanks for info.

I got it working, but don't ask me what I've done (several changes caused it to get into working state). I think I manually edited /etc/network/interfaces to bring web-admin up, and then changed settings in there....

I also added sis900 module to /etc/modules..

Users / Re: MythTV Observations, ugh.
« on: September 04, 2007, 10:53:25 am »
Hi,

I'll add few my thoughts, since I've been using both systems for quite some time now.

- I have MD connected to LCD TV and I see no really important reason why I would use mythtv instead of LCD's tuner for live tv. Commercials are on ever 5 minutes anyway, so you can do all your work in between (whatever you like to do: toilet, wife)... :-). If live TV over mythtv will hickup once in 3 hours, this is it. Standards for live TV devices are really high and users won't accept anything but 100% working solutions. Why risk with mythtv, all that buffering, when you can use already present tuners on tv...

- I mainly use mythtv only as PVR backend that records all stuff that is setup to do records. Now, with mytheb, I even don't need to run mythfrontend anymore

- I miss some usefull mythtv plugins more that just mythfrontend (mythnews, mythweather, mythphone, mythzoneminder...) and maybe some of newer ones I don't know. So I'd integrate those as external standalone applications, until lmce will have its own counterparts...

- I think that real integration of mythtv is to some extent pointless right now, when mythtv is developed to be more a standalone all-you-need application than useful backend that can be easily integrated into other systems....

Only my thoughts,

regards,

Rob.

Users / Will coverart information in mp3s appear under LMCE ?
« on: September 03, 2007, 03:15:00 am »
Hi,

I'm transferring my large collection of mp3s to LMCE. I wonder if I edit MP3 tags to include cover art, will it be recognized by LMCE ?

Any other experience, advice how to do this ?

Thanks in advance,

Bulek.

UI2 works fine on any Via C7/CX700M Mboards but you need the Unichrome Pro II commercial drivers from Via to exploit the chipset features needed by UI2 to do so. Fiire have bundled these drivers with Via's DS700 Vesa mount unit. Thats it. If you want UI2 on this type of device then currently Fiire have the only solution.

Any C7 based CN700 or CX700 based motherboard will run lmce-0704 UI1 superbly when married to the freely available Unichrome Pro drivers though.

Do I understand correctly? You cannot buy commercial drivers from Via - Fiire is currently only solution for PRO II commercial drivers ?

Thanks in advance,

Hi,

maybe MediaUpdate daemon is causing slow down. I couldn't find any data regarding how it works, when it's started etc... So every now and then I tend t switch it off...

Hi,

I'll try to add few thoughts, since I've been working a lot also on Pluto system. Since I'm not experienced Linux guy, I could easily be missing something but anyway :
1. for a good start, I think working SVN and sqlcvs would be just fine
2. enhancement should be entered in coordinated way - For example under Pluto, where I helped a bit with Motion wrapper. I've contacted corresponding developers and explained what I'd like to add. Then he approved my work, I took down SVN source, compiled just new binary for Motion Wrapper and add it to my formal release. Then I tested it in my environment and then applied those changes into SVN - "official" testers did try it and it was in next release.
3. Same mechanism could be used for sqlcvs. I know this would narrow contributions, but again maybe better than nothing at all...

Currently we're not getting any enhancements into sql database or in source code, so maybe this would be improvement. And later, if community grows, we can take another steps.

What I'm currently also missing very badly is developers discussion... If you notice, I have several question regarding (how to best implement this, how to efficiently add this and to do some brainstorming on some future additions and how to implement them, or to learn important details about LMCE & Pluto internals etc..)...

HTH,

regards,

Bulek.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Better Media Organization / Browser
« on: August 31, 2007, 08:21:44 pm »
Hi,

not sure if this will  be of any help, but this feature exist in quite limited way. You can go into Video, then Options and select Filename at the top and then your directories will appear and you can browse them. It seems that it only remembers that setting for one Orbiter session.

Hi,

I've tried to transfer my contributions from Pluto system (support for Marantz Audio Receiver,etc...). I've posted to forum how to do it and received no response in quite some time now. I really have no clue what to do next other than waiting...

I'd also contribute a lot, but currently I don't know who will (if anyone at all) maintain and review changes, give some directions for contributions to be uniform and aligned with LMCE philosophy... We need some starting up effort to get more contributors on the line, but no sign of it. I understand that developers are filled with other, maybe more important stuff. But similar thing happened to Pluto also. Promising at the start with prompt help and then we all know what happened.

Regards,

Bulek.
