The User system badly needs a way to log out. Currently, somebody is always logged in as a user for a particular orbiter. For example, lets say I'm logged in to the on-screen orbiter of my hybrid. I go to work, but at home, my user is still logged in to that orbiter. If I had the hybrid set so that only I could log into it, then my security scheme would fail, as I am the only user that can log in, but yet I can't log out of the orbiter, so while I'm at work my hybrid remains wide open to anybody.

What I am proposing is a "Logout" button on the select user screen. The action of this button would be to take to to a "logged out" screen. This "logged out" screen could, in turn, be the select users screen, with the home button removed and the logout button removed. Then when someone wants to log back in, they just have to touch their name, enter their pin, then they are back to the home screen.

Also, while the above proposal takes care of the "visual" end of things, internally LMCE needs a member varialbe to track the logged out status of each orbiter, set the current user to null, and not allow any orbiter screen except for the "logged out" screen to be shown if it is set.

Anyone agree? Anyone have a better idea of how something like this could be implemented?

Itsik - excellent work, we've been needing this!

You should put your source up, or at least a diff so that:
A) You could get some peer review and feedback
B) See why it only works on the core (with LMCE's internal structure, it should have worked everywhere, as the core and MD's all use the same packages)
C) Ensure it makes its way into 0810
D) Others with 64 bit architecture can try to compile and report their success
E) Remain in compliance with GNU

Again, excellent work, a lot of people have a need for this.

Developers / Re: 16:9 UI1 Variant Do you think its warranted?

Anyone that has an interest - can you post your device's resolution here so that I can ensure that support gets added for that resolution?

I'll start with 480x320

I'll take it on, I'll do a trac ticket for it in a little bit. I'm very familiar with the UpdateEntArea code, and I'm quite handy with SQL

Developers / 16:9 UI1 Variant Do you think its warranted?
« on: March 12, 2009, 03:14:45 pm »
As a lot of small widescreen ratio devices are starting to pop up, I think we need to consider making a 16:9 variant of the UI1 (Normal Horizontal 16:9). Orbiter is sure to be ported to more and more 16:9 devices. A prime example is my google G1 phone. UI1 looks horrible on a 16:9 device currently because all of the background images retain their 4:3 aspect ratio. Also, areas such as the media browsers could make excellent use of the extra screen realestate (either by displaying longer Title names, or by adding a 3rd column for browsing media for example).

Just wanted to open it up for discussion - I'm probably going to start making it regardless (unless anyone has some compelling reasons not to do it), just wanted some input and Ideas of what we could do with the extra screen area.

sambuca - can you post a speed comparison of booting from the lan and resuming from suspend?

Seth -

I only have 1 dimming X10 light in my house, and that is in the Living Room. Every other switch I use an X10 XPS3 On.Off switch which works great with compact fluorescent bulbs, and is very reliable. They do make a click noise though (which I like personally). Also, they require a hot and a neutral wire at the switch - which can be a limiting factor for some.

I finally got the OSD back onto the floorplan (0810 only), but the old bug I mentioned still exists.... You can see the following for the 2 trac tickets I created about it. Its the same problem where text x and y isn't offset as it should, causing text to overlap the icon and become unreadable while the light is off.

Anyways, if you are using 0810, you can at least start adding your enhancements to Lighting_Plugin now.

I still haven't had time to test this out yet (been extremely busy) - but it is a needed feature.

I agree that suspend to disk isn't a great option as a good percentage of users will have diskless MD's. I understand that it would be easier to implement, but it wouldn't be as good for our purposes as suspend to RAM. I hope you keep plugging away at it - I think we all know what its like to feel like we are chasing our tails around in circles sometimes

Users / Re: How do I get the "Showtime" Lighting scenario on all MD's?
« on: March 11, 2009, 02:02:21 am »
I don't have the source in front of me, but I believe that the room must have lights AND a television (an actual device template for a television) for the showtime scenario to be generated. If you happen to have to create the device template, look at other TV device templates and make sure you assign it to the correct category - then it should work

Seth -

Yes, the X10 devices don't support the bi-directional communication (though its in the protocol). To my knowlege, the only X10 switch that ever supported it was made by levitron  years ago and they are very hard to get now. I'm pretty sure that is what is going on.

I'm just now getting some time to start on this. I had a question on one of the steps...
- make a copy of, then edit the original to point at /usr/pluto/bin/

I'm not sure exactly what you want to do at this step, can you explain a bit more?

The CM11A is a 2 way interface, however, most X10 switches are not - meaning that when used locally it will not update the floorplan icon. So this is not a bug. However, if you use an X10 remote, or LMCE to operate the light, the floorplan will update. I never implemented the status request function of the CM11A because of this. Maybe I should implement it now, as the Insteon might actually send it when used in X10 mode....

Regarding dimming, I am aware of some bugs with the dimming that I will have ironed out by the 810 release. - though i've never seen the exact bug you are describing

Bulek - I will work on getting the OSD text back on the floorplan this weekend and channeled into 0810.

Also, I want to see if an old bug is fixed where it wouldn't let you put the OSD text below the icon in the past (this would be the most space efficient way to display the text).

Thom - while on the subject...  What detection methods are available for PCI cards?
