Hi,

I'm not sure if this is of some use, but some time ag Pluto system had similar problem. Mythbackend is started by default also on MDs, but shouldn't be if there is no capture card in MD. But I'm not sure if this was fixed or not. If not, you can search and prevent mythbackend from starting on mds...

Help Wanted / Re: Build Add on to lmce ?
« on: August 15, 2007, 11:47:51 am »
Hi,

I've created similar thing for other home automation system (http://www.cybrotech.co.uk/), but have done only proof of concept code in Perl. It actually works ok, so maybe we won't do any further C++ coding on that...
It detects and creates devices automatically, user just needs to put them into floorplans...

I could try to do similar thing for your system, but would need more information about protocol to your main gateway device so I can do integration. From this point on, you can decide whether to go further and code it into C++ which I'm not good at..

Hi,

analog phone interfaces can sometimes be a big pain... I'd also vote for external spa interfaces - it doesn't take any place in server, you can use it also in other situations, etc...

Otherwise for setting up Asterisk under LMCE, try to use first LMCE web pages and then AMP pages that you can find under telephony group. And then experiment....

Developers / Re: How to change house mode from external systems
« on: July 30, 2007, 10:56:24 am »
Hi,


since release 1.1. is approaching, I hope you won't get mad if I bump this one. I'd like to hear developers opinions, so we can continue our integration work...

Just hope that some developer will catch this entry and respond...

Thanks in advance,

Users / Re: Windows PC as a Media Director?
« on: July 28, 2007, 01:30:11 am »
thanks to both replies

im intrigued about using windows as an orbiter.

this means ill get the LinuxMCE interface on my computer without having to reboot or re-install my OS?

and retain the same functionality?
Well there are two general types of ORbiters. One is called "on screen" Orbiter and runs on Media Director. Another is just plain Orbiter that runs on Windows also. The main difference is that "on screen" Orbiter is capable of playing media and has embedded softphone and the second is more like a "remote control" screen for those on MDs.

Users / Re: Which security panel is wireless?
« on: July 27, 2007, 07:35:58 am »
It seems that not many people use Linuxmce with a security system. Does anyone know how easy/hard to add a driver for a new security system?
Try to look for existing examples. If I remember right, Apex Destiny support is written in GSD/Ruby and maybe this could give you idea.

I have no idea how hard it is - if you have not so many features on device and its Rs232 protocol well documented, I guess this is pretty easy task.

Users / Re: LinuxMCE 0704 RC1 Released
« on: July 26, 2007, 12:31:18 am »
Hi,

I'm also curious if RC1 includes update mechanism, so further updates would be much easier than clean reinstallation as it is now ?

Installation issues / Re: 2 Network cards needed for core ?
« on: July 25, 2007, 10:08:16 am »
Hi,

don't forget the other possible side of the medal. If something goes wrong with your network on Core, then all your local network could be dead. I had this problem and then I sweared that Core will never be master firewall/router again. But I agree that you can fork special small network with MDs and other Core related devices and let the Core be the master for them. Currently I'm running Pluto and somehow it sits for few minutes in network starting phase - and it's a pitty cause LAN doesn't work till Core is fully booted...

Hi,

sorry, but since release is aproaching, I'd like to bump this one as it would be convenient if those contributions could get into LMCE's database.

Anyone from developers willing to help ?

Installation issues / Re: ATI Remote Wonder
« on: July 15, 2007, 01:04:49 am »
Hi,

some time ago I had this remote working under Pluto, but :
if I remember right, I had to do few things :
- disable kernel module that makes RW acting like mouse
- add Ati Remote Wonder as lirc remote
- stock configuration file didn't work for me, so I recorded new one and I guess contributed back into Pluto database
- I also remember that lirc was not working and I ran out of ideas, but then after few reboots it started to work - no clue why...

So maybe you should try to get it working with lirc manually, record buttons and see where the problem is...

Users / Re: Do I understand LMCE properly?
« on: July 10, 2007, 01:45:13 am »
Hi,

IMHO lack of response mean that it's quite hard to answer fully to your questions right now....

LMCE is pretty immature, we're all waiting for 1.1 release that would be a bit more completed and maybe offer solid base for further work.

At this time, a lot of your questions go into "I'm not sure about an answer if I don't see it functioning first"....

« on: July 09, 2007, 11:08:21 pm »
I agree I wish I could find something with the functionality of both wrapped into one.

I could run both. Using LinuxMCE soley for the media content/ cams / pbx  and Misterhouse mainly for x-10 / weather / etc.

Blair


I think it would not be too hard, but I guess it would be much easier if few guys familiar with MH and Perl and some with LMCE get together... On LMCE side we just need clean way of showing things on Orbiters (weather, temperatures, support for devices that MH controls,etc...). On MH side we need simple listener and few modules to connect to LMCE or Pluto....

Any guys around willing to tackle this ? I can help (I'm pretty familiar with both system), but currently just don't have anough time to do it by myself... I'm also lousy programmer, so experienced Perl guy would be of tremendous help...

HTH,

Users / Re: LMCE upgrade procedure
« on: July 09, 2007, 10:58:51 pm »
Hi,

AFAIK upgrade possibility as we know it from Pluto will be included in formal 1.1 release. So I guess new installation will be needed for 1.1, but not anymore after that...

« on: July 09, 2007, 02:11:52 am »
Hi,

I think that you don't have to choose - you can use both of them - I also plan to do the same. Misterhouse is really nice backend, quite easy to learn and customize... LMCE is great GUI, with probably crippled backend functionality, so I guess using both of them would make a nice combination...

See http://wiki.linuxmce.com/index.php/Misterhouse

I can help, if you decide to go that route...

Users / Re: Diskless media director boots halfway
« on: July 08, 2007, 09:41:17 am »
The CN700 / Via based MB is the problem. There may be a workaround coming but many people have had problems getting the VIA stuff to cooperate with Linux past basic computing. I got most of the way with a CX700 and then both the video and audio drivers weren't working. Looking deeper there was a tedious process to build both with no indication on the via boards that it would actually work.  I decided to wait since I know the developers are looking at the Via platform and they will make something with a higher chance of working.

Once you build/install Openchrome then then CN700/CX700/CLE266 boards work fine in our experience with LMCE.

Hi Andrew :

Could you please give some more of your experiences with Openchrome and Vias and more information, how to get this going
(building Openchrome) ?

Thanks in advance,
