Users / Re: LinuxMCE and Misterhouse
« 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...

Regards,

Bulek....

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,

Developers / How to change house mode from external systems
« on: July 04, 2007, 11:17:47 pm »
Hi,

I'm thinking about most convenient way of syncing certain kind of informations between LMCE and home automation system I have.

For instance :
- I'd like to set House mode in either system and then propagate new state into another system. For instance, user comes into house and types PIN code on one of LCD keypads of automation system. Now I'd like to put house into Unarmed mode. How can I do this ? Can I send DCE message for this ?

- I have Volume up/down controls on automation keypads and would like to propagate volume changes to LMCE that is playing certain media in that room. How to do that ?  Can I get information for instance of current volume level from DCERouter or any other SW device ? How to ?
How can I change volume of MD from external devices - possible with DCE messages ?

- I'd also be happy to discuss with other users about possible solutions, cause together we can certainly get to better solutions....

Regards,

Bulek.

Hi,

I still didn't make any test in this direction, but since I'm complete newbie regarding Xorg, sessions and inputs devices, I wonder if it's possible to have 2 screens with two input devices (touch USB for touchscreen, and maybe Gyration mouse for another proper onscreen Orbiter).

As far as I remember this was a major pain to do 2-3 years ago, and I wonder if something changed in this area.... Also I'd only need graphics acceleration on screen that would output to TV (Gyration mouse as input device) and no acceleration on touchscreen, where I'd output only UI1 without media feature (plain remote Orbiter).

Anyone with more info in this direction ?

Thanks in advanced,

regards,

Rob.

Users / Re: Setting up a voip provider and account.
« on: June 25, 2007, 03:00:59 am »
There is an advanced interface for Asterisk that gives to good access for setting these things up. Advanced-configuration-phone setup-settings-add trunk (if you don't already have one) .  You probably won't need the IAX stuff. You would go into Trunks and add the section after general before extensions to it. There are others much more expert in Asterisk that I am but starting from that and looking at the existing settings got me on the air. Getting a Grandstream 488 working with it to connect my existing phones was more of an adventure I will post if anyone is interested. With much trial and error I even got my Nokia e-70 to work with it.

Every piece of information is valuable to us, users. Please post to Wiki, about your procedures...

Rob,

I can't offer you much help, although I can see no reason why it shouldn't work if you can somehow tell it a different device ID and core IP.
The core will generate an Orbiter interface for a particular device ID that will only work with that Core, so if you do that on each core then as long as you can tell it the Core IP (Which you can) and the device ID (which is the bit I can't remember) then there should be no reason why it shouldn't work.

Is this what you have tried?
Exactly.

On a side note, how have you set up your two cores? Different subnets using different hubs/switches? Is one of them still acting as a gateway? Is DHCP still running on both?

...

I assume you are running both as an evaluation to see which to proceed with, is this correct?

Darren
Yeap, but I don't see how DHCP would influence my tests, cause I set them to existing ip and ID.

Rob.

Developers / How to contribute templates and GSD code for few devices
« on: June 20, 2007, 09:30:30 pm »
Hi,

I have contributed and created few templates for Plutohome (Marantz SR5600 Receiver, Cybrotech Home Automation system, etc....).

Since they are in kind of "prerelease state", changes cannot get into their database. But since I use LMCE also in my new house, I'd kindly ask for some guidance how to send contributions to LMCE database, so I can use devices I created also on other fresh installs ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Installation issues / Can Pluto and LMCE Orbiters coexist on WinXP ?
« on: June 19, 2007, 09:13:17 pm »
Hi,

I have one Pluto and one LMCE system, but I can't run Orbiters for both systems on my laptop with win xp.

if I try to install LMCE Orbiter it complains that it is already installed, if I run Pluto's Orbiter with LMCE ID and IP, it just freezes for infinite time.

Anyone with more success ?

Regards,

Rob.

Users / Re: SONOS digital music system
« on: June 18, 2007, 01:35:41 pm »
Hi,

haven't played with it, but could be usefull to someone. There is web controller for Sonos - open sourced written in
Perl. I guess Sonos Control portion could be easily extracted....

http://www.purple.org/sonos/

I also like Sonos, but my main idea was to use their portable remote for also other home automation stuff not just music, but at that point they didn't show any interest for adding 3rd party controls to their remotes, so I stopped considering it...

HTH,

Hi,

if I remember right, then someone mentioned that Xine player wrapper is being worked on to replace VLC for multiroom audio... Maybe this is the result.....

3.After you've started the media playback
Press F7 to see the Main Menu.
4.Press Media button and go to Floorplan
Here you'll see al your MDs. From here you can:
 - see what media is playing on every MD by clicking on that MD
 - transfer media playback from one Md to an Other MD
 - play the same media that's playing on one MD to other MDs

All these are really functional ?

AFAIK it was just a wish in Pluto to have such features. VLC implementation actually didn't work at all on one-to-many streaming. Last thing I remember is that some effort has been done to make Xine player with those features, but I'm not sure of any progress....

Hi,

I'll have hybrid LMCE in my new house and would like to solve basic media needs with one hybrid system. I'd like to run one Orbiter with UI2 and show it on TV and would also like to run another X session with Orbiter and UI1 that would be shown on house's main touchscreen, from where user would only control devices - no multimedia necessary...

Any hint how this could be done ?

Users / Re: camera and linuxmce for access control and security!
« on: June 07, 2007, 02:00:17 pm »
Hi,

another way (I'm thinking of) is to have doorphone that is FXS compatible (like normal analog phone) and then have ATA or Sipura VOIP adapter, so doorphone makes proper call to Asterisk PBX in LMCE. Quite some time ago I proposed such setup on Pluto forums but it went by....

You normally get "Incoming call screen" on all Pluto Orbiters on call from doorphone, the only addition that should be made is to make incoming call screen that would also show snapshots from related camera and there you go... Talk over plain phone and see it over camera...

HTH,
