Developers / Re: CM15A and LinuxMCE
« on: November 06, 2009, 10:49:33 pm »

Build environment looks ok now, currently running  Not sure what was wrong perviously but obviously an issue with dependancies or the environment.

Do you have a CM15 ?

Hopefully I will have the build environment functional before you run out of fuel  ;D

Thanks but hopefully there is no need to use the sniffer as I understand the protocol reasonably well, there are still holes in the CM15A documentation, but nothing that should effect integration.

I have built a clean kbuntu desktop, performed update and dist-upgrade, then started following steps in the wiki

The build-replacements script failed on numerous occasions due to missing dependancies, final errors occur with the asterisk build - I stopped at that point as I don't need to build these packages at the moment.

The build-makerelease is failing with lots of errors very early on, again I am assuming a missing a package so currently looking into it.

I am currently using svn revision 22439

I am just stepping through the process again so will probably jump on IRC later if I can not resolve the issue in the next 2 hours

Thanks for the lsusb output, looks good as it confirms the information described on those other sites.

Good to see you have plenty of modules to test, the biggest hurdle will be the incomming RF stuff as the protocol differs to the powerline signals, although should not be too difficult to get it working.

I am still hitting problems getting the build environment functional, but hopefully once working integration will be straight forward.

The build environment took longer than expected, but is in the final stages of completion
The first step is to write a small application using libusb to dump the device descriptors, once I have these it should not take too much work to integrate basic functionality into LMCE.


Can you run lsusb -v and provide me with the output relating to

Code: [Select]
Bus xxx Device xxx: ID 0bc7:0001 X10 Wireless Technology, Inc. ActiveHome (ACPI-compliant)
I have replaced bus and device numbers with xxx as they will change depending upon which usb port you use.

Also what X10 equipment to you have for testing purposes ?

Sorry for the delay guys, have had to rebuild my server, should have 8.10 build environment setup tonight so can start working on the CM15 support.

The good news is that the protocols for CM15 and CM11 are very similar with only a few variations so it should not be too hard to implement support. 

The easiest option would be to use the device driver approach although this would require some customisation of the kernel which would be in contrast to the direction LMCE is taking.  Therefore I will look at using the libusb code which although more difficult allows the CM15 to be supported without impacting on the kernel.

Did you have to remove the usbhid module to allow the cm15a device driver to function, or have you rebuilt the 8.10 kernel to stop HID from grabbing the cm15a ?

I was only going to PM to discuss availability for chatting on IRC, I will open a thread in the developers section to discuss actual implementation.

Infact can you move this thread to the developers section please  ;D

@hagen and mythtified,

Will start on the LinuxMCE integration at the weekend, will send you both a PM in the next two days after I have identified the differences between CM15A and CM11A protocols.

Cheers guys

I don't have a CM15 but would happy to write a driver for LinuxMCE by either intergrating support within the CM11A driver or adding a new driver.  If someone or ideally a couple of people who have this device and have the time to spend testing and assisting let me know.

No need for programming skills required, just your time to debug driver


Installation issues / Re: cant escape poison arrows skin!
« on: October 20, 2009, 10:14:49 pm »
Did you mother not tell you that "Poison Arrows are dangerous"

Sorry only joking, could not resist.

If you can get to KDE desktop or have access from another computer then you could use the web interface to modify the skin for your orbiter.

Otherwise you can run the AV-Wizard again by modifying /etc/pluto.conf.

Alternatively search for AVWizard and you will find the key combination required to force its execution during startup


Installation issues / Re: beta-problem with MD
« on: October 20, 2009, 09:15:07 pm »
After a while I of fiddling around I got the core working again, but only with basic skin and static ui. I checked out the nvidia-drivers, but I could not activate any of them. I will most probably make a new install tonight and go back to alpha. After seeing the new mythtv, i am a little reluctant though to go back to the "old" looked quite nifty so far....too bad.
I just saw this on trac :
very interesting, I just wonder how this will affect the building of the bootimage for the MD, since there seems to be a problem with those packages, at least in the beta...don't know about the alpha

That ticket was closed yesterday evening at the request of phenigma, only reason given was "invalid" so sounds like there is not a problem with the mythtv repository.  Hopefully phenigma can shed some light on this matter


Installation issues / Re: Setting up an 810 dedicated core.
« on: October 19, 2009, 04:04:33 pm »
Your assumption is correct, that once the install is completed you have a fully functional CORE.

The Wizard has two parts, once which Core based (House Setup) and one which is Media Director based (Media Director Setup).

I also always run a dedicated core and never use the wizard, I setup any directly attached core devices using the web admin panel.

I also edit /etc/pluto.conf and set AutostartMedia=0 which disables the Media Director on the core.


Installation issues / Re: RS232 interface on an onkyo sr706...

Your welcome Onkyo seem to make it as difficult as possible to find info regarding their RS232 protocol even though they advertise it as a benefit  ::)
