Feature requests & roadmap / linuxmce hardware database
« on: December 05, 2007, 11:04:39 pm »

Can the web page organisers set up a linuxmce hardware database like they have in mythtv

This let's people add their hardware in a table format that is searchable.



PS.  Or perhaps we could use theirs as they allow freevo. MultiMedia-box, ebox and others.

Users / HDTV flatscreen (hang on the wall) with linuxmce control in the USA
« on: November 10, 2007, 09:08:41 pm »

I am looking for Replacement TV's as mine are pretty old.  HDTV  flatscreen (hang on the wall) with linuxmce control in the USA.

There is little information in the wiki.

Would I be right in assuming that the best control in order is :-

1)   IP/ethernet

2)   Serial port

3)  infra-red

Where does HDMI come in ?  Does that have a control interface for switching input's etc ?

On a quick google, what I have found is :-

a)   40″ and 46″ MultiSync 20 Series HDTVs by NEC

b)   iLo 32" widescreen HDTV

c)   Akai 32-inch LCT3201AD Widescreen HDTV LCD TV/DVD Player

If people have TV's controlled by linuxmce, can they please add to the wiki at :-

Oh..I added a line and a link to the video web page on the main wiki page as I think that many people have seen or been told by friends about linuxmce would like to know the hardware and steps involved in setting it up.  I hope nobody moves it.  It took me some time, way too long to find that web page.

Looking at  go down the page to alphatical info and look at S for Sony and the  Sony VAIO VGP-XL1B3 Media Changer isn't even mentioned even though it is shown in the video and listed on the  page.

Again, I implore you.  If you have a working (even a test system), add your hardware to the wiki.


Users / satellite tv in the usa
« on: November 07, 2007, 06:12:52 pm »

I'm looking at satellite tv in the usa.  There are Two providers, dish network and direct tv.

Does anyone have any information on which one to choose as far as controllable hardware from LinuxMCE ?

Why not cable ??

Travelling in an old, refurbished motorhome or possibly having a second home somewhere else.  I want to be able to take it with me, especially in the motorhome.

Installation issues / Intermatic Z-Wave USB Interface
« on: August 27, 2007, 04:27:58 pm »


I've searched but haven't found anything definitive.  Under the theory that someone has a Intermatic Z-Wave USB Interface, but hasn't reported in or added it to the wiki yet, has anyone tried this unit with linuxmce ?  and did they get it to work ?

Installation issues / Light - on and off in UI2
« on: August 22, 2007, 12:00:49 am »

When I add devices  e.g. 4 x-10 lights in the master bedroom, there is only 1 on and 1 off button that activates all 4 in sequence.

How do you control individual lights ?

Installation issues / IBM Home Director (HD11a)
« on: August 21, 2007, 11:58:20 pm »
I have a couple of IBM Home Director (HD11a).  I think they are badged cm11a.

They work for a few goes then lock up.

When I unplug and plug them back in, the stacked commands (button presses) occur.

I tried them both in windows XP and they work without any lockups.

Any ideas ?

Users / Global Cache GC-100-12 (firmware 2.4-12)
« on: August 17, 2007, 08:59:37 pm »

I am seeing issues with my GC-100-12 (yes, I've emailed support) but want to find out if it's a generic issue or just my device.

I have noticed a number of issues with browers (probably due to the cgi code).

Linux - Firefox, Opera - Connection error on using apply.  Doesn't update/apply the settings.

Konqueror web browser works fine.

No ping response with Linux either.

Windows XP does get ping responses.

Firefox also fails to apply/update on XP.

Internet explorer works fine.

Anyone else have these devices that can shed some light ?
