Like. :)


Users / Re: Airplayer device as Audio for a room?
« on: November 28, 2014, 09:35:35 pm »
You're thinking of this the complete wrong way around. The AirPlay Streamer exists to allow a media director (or compatible device, such as a Joggler, running the Orbiter) to be a media destination for AirPlay devices.

These AirPlay devices aren't "scripts.", they're a C++ program that embeds shairport code for the audio portion, and implements a reverse PTTH proxy for the video and photos. Source code is in our source tree at: src/AirPlay_Streamer. (

So you'll need to either:

(1) put a media director there.
(2) put a joggler or some other PC there and compile/run the AirPlay Streamer there.
(3) find another solution.

Which designobjs are those? I'll look them over and do some basic addition of commands, etc.

or record in the nude, that always gets lots of least, it worked for me.


Users / Re: Volume issue with LG TV template

I've been trying to work on that template for a while now, as it had bugs where it would emit erroneous volume values (which would be ignored.)

The code is buggy and needs to be audited and fixed (and I only have so many hands)

Are we putting this in a wiki page? :)

Let me throw one thing in:

No media director? No Game Player. but it seems, I'm the only one who gives a shit about that...

Am guessing the dial plan is colliding somewhere, can somebody look into this, and fix it? (after making a ticket)

Very surprised as I did not write the code for 10.04, but for 12.04, and it needs to be compiled, anyway.. The Plugin is there, however, the DEVICE that emits the events needs to be written.

When you remove the event, does the router come back up?

Also, when the router crashes, can you give a backtrace of DCERouter? I'm guessing the criteria processing in the event plugin is choking because it doesn't understand the input.

I'm going to guess, it's a bug. Can you file a ticket in Trac?

The PK_Pipe=-1 is suspicious... do any of your commands in the scenarios fill in the pk_pipe command parameter?


Installation issues / Re: Intel NUC D54250WY problem
« on: June 12, 2014, 05:38:26 pm »
Posde: No, because the default diskless kernel literally causes a kernel panic due to the missing e1000e driver.

As I said before, what I wrote above is preliminary, but basically, I had to make sure everything was up to date on the core, install the saucy kernel, rebuild the default kernel, rebuild the system image, boot the md, let it do its diskless setup, mine skipped over AV Wizard, so I rebooted into AV wizard, and let it do its thing..then I installed the xorg saucy, and made sure va-api stuff was up to date.


Installation issues / Re: Intel NUC D54250WY problem

Okay, so.

I have the 52450 here, and yes.. it takes some work to get going. I will have to write up a detailed procedure, but, the gist of it is:

Basically, the 54250 NUC has new enough hardware, that the default kernel for precise will not handle it (missing drivers for both the Intel GMA5000 GPU, and the Intel e1000e ethernet adapter.), There is, however, a backport of saucy's kernel and xorg drivers which will remedy this.

Assuming the media director isn't configured (and if it is, you need to delete it)

* install linux-generic-lts-trusty kernel on core
* run /usr/pluto/bin/ to make the trusty kernel the new pxe boot default for unconfigured media directors
* alter /usr/pluto/bin/, line 472, to be TARGET_KVER_LTS_HES="-lts-saucy"
* run, get a few cups of coffee.
* boot the media director, it should do
* reload router.
* let it build, and reboot.
* it should go into AV Wizard.
* Do the AV wizard, let it install everything.

At this point, ConfirmDependencies will try to install the standard packages for X... This is not what we want, so...

open a shell and go to the md, and apt-get install xserver-xorg-lts-saucy

At this point, reboot the md again.

You should then be able to go to the wizard > media directors, find the NUC, and then select vaapi under video acceleration, reload router.

At this point you should have full functionality with the NUC, including VA-API.

You can double check, with CPU usage, with blu-ray movies, you should not see CPU usage over 10%.

If you see more, or stuttering photo screen saver, make sure that the correct xorg is installed, and connect to Xine_Player's screen session to see if the correct driver is being loaded, or if an error results.
