Well it's been a nine days and I've emailed both fiire and polywell twice, but still no reply.

It's pretty sad that both companies can't even be bothered to respond to a simple question of how many PCI slots in fiire station

I even copied to my yahoo address so a reply-all would go to both addresses in case there was a spam filter issue.

Anyone else had any response from or

Maybe the fiire is dead already.

Anyone else know the number of PCI slots in fiire station ?

According to GCSupport aparently every browser but IE is broken (funny how I never noticed that before, not to mention ping being broken under linux as well, I mean come on).  Whether this broken firmware can ever be upgraded is anybodies guess (and I'm not desperate enough yet to email their techsupport), but I digress.

As this thread started on the 20th August, 3-days after my post and your response on the 17th August ref the GC100-12 issues, I assume you tried to test your unit.

Ref -

But as I stated in my post, konqueror works.

As Gc didn't heed my suggestion to edit their email, I have provided a follow-up at the link above.

As always, confirm with support by email yourselves.  They could change their minds  ;-)

OK - It's been a few days and GC haven't updated/edited their message with the additional information they sent to me.  I suugested that they should.

Basically...but you should check yourselves by emailing support  yourselves.

"If you would like an RMA # for the upgrade, please forward complete contact
information including where to return the unit to and your telephone number.

Yes, the upgrade is free."

This upgrade fixes the browser issue but the ping issue remains.  I suggested they fix this as well.

I don't want to create 4 scenarios for handling 4 individual lights. 

The plan idea is OK.

I guess I expected that when I hover over a light button, a selection of waht is available would pop-up (like when their are submenus on the windows start menus of the kde ones.

It seems incredibly cludgy once you have selected a room, not to be able to control the lights or appliances individually from the UI.

I'm not using the remote.

I'm just clicking on the on and off button on the ui2 of linuxmce

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)

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 ?

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 ?

"I am contemplating going with an 8 instead of 4 so i can use 1 FXO and 7 analog phones or maybe 2 FXOs and 6 phones."

You had better know exactly what you need now, and what your maximum capacity in the future or you going to waste money.

The TDM400 accepts 4 single modules of either FXO (analog telephone lines POTS) or FXS (terminate an analog telephone), for a total of 4.

The TDM800 will accept only 2 modules, either single or quad modules. (which means 2 singles, 1 single 1 quad, or 2 quads

In your case, that means having a single FXO and a quad FXS to 4 single line phones, which isn't what you want.  A second pci card would be needed.

You may want to add  IP phones instead. 

On my system, I have the TDM400 with single FXO,  3 FXS and 3 aastra 9133i phones

Yes, I'm been having some medical issues recently and I don't seem to be checking stuff that I type and I also seem to get items mixed up.  Sometimes speech as well.

I've corrected the post.

I meant PVR.  I have hauggepauge PVR-150 and PVR-350

I use zoneminder, occasionally (the machine get's robbed for trying other stuff like plutohome, linuxmce, sugarcrm etc.).

Buy a TDM400 card from digium or a dealer.  It can have up to 4-modules e.g. 1 CO (Central Office) and 3 single line phones.  That's how I started with asterisk 3-years ago.  I had some issues with setting up zaptel, but it's better now, as it always is with time and peoples dedication.  If zaptel finds and autoconfigures the card then it will be a breeze.

If you have no experience with VOIP/asterisk, then try asterisk@home / trixbox

Oh, I later bought some aastra 9133i SIP phones.  They work great.

Full iso install of linux with call manager, call accounting, web GUI setup of extensions and routes.  Saves you having to configure by hand ie. you'll save several days, unless you already know apache, mysql etc.

I have a lot of pieces, zaptel cards, cameras, framegrabber, PVR's, x-10, insteon, caddx nx8e, IR stuff and want to tie it all together.

I talked to some of the plutohome people in the August - December timeframe last year as they have been talking about dealer systems for over 3-years on their web site, but I could never get a dealer name from them to buy the hardware, so, like many people, I keep testing when I can.
I've emailed fiire and polywell about the system for number of slots plus if linuxmce is specifically tuned for the hardware.

I'll let you know if I hear back

PS - this is an interesting read

Yes, definetely update us on what you use for the server/backend/core  and the client/frontend/media director.

I've been burned a few times trying to get the right combination going and gave up in the end, as a real working system as opposed to a test system.

The ASUS M2NPV-VM is a year old and the 6200 chipset has been replaced by the 7xxx and now 8xxx chipsets.

As fiire has just come out, I'm looking at that.  I have emailed them and polywell.  Does anyone know how many slots are in the server as I have 2 asterisk cards, 3 PVR cards and a 8-channel frame grabber
