The procedure is documented in the wiki:

The LinuxMCE webinterface for sqlCVS works fine. If there is demand i would host a master database for testing.

Well I got a little further, I copied /usr/pluto/database/dce.sqlcvs from an existing installation, and this seems to have been the missing file.  I've dropped the database to start fresh again first.

based on your findings i set up a sqlCVS server. The procedure is documented in the wiki:

Are you trying to use  a Squeezebox as an IR blaster?
yes, the IR signal is transmitted by the Squeezebox (optional IR transmitter needed).

That would be a nice feature to have.  I think the slimserver streamer object is currently the only one that accesses the CLI for slimserver, so that may be what needs to be modified, as opposed to writing a GSD interface from scratch.

i see no problem in extending "./src/SlimServer_PlugIn/SlimServer_PlugIn.cpp". My first idea is to put the call in "SlimServer_PlugIn::ReceivedCommandForChild". So i can get the player-mac from "*pDeviceData_Impl", can't i?
But how to configure the core to use the players as IR Transmitters?

I agree, that we should discuss the matter of the right repository - espacially if it turns out that SVN does not work as expected. But please, don't discuss everything until it's dead :/

so true..

Developers / PNP without DHCP
« on: October 11, 2007, 10:17:03 am »
Hi Folks,

i investigated the DHCP PNP process and had the idea of using arpwatch for pnp detection. It produces log entries like this:
Oct 11 13:38:18 dcerouter arpwatch: new station de:ad:be:ef:0:4 eth0

derive from

Caveats: boot options for media directors and stuff have to be specified in the standalone DHCP server.

I think this would be a nice fallback for PNP when the internal dhcp server is deactivated. What do you think about it?

To be honest, I'm surprised that nobody responded to this post (or the one beeing about two weeks older). I remember a lot of people asking where to get sources, to submit patches and so on. However, none of them gave any comments :(
Now, this repository is ready to go with the 0704 sources, there's Trac up and running (though not fully configured yet).
can you make the url public?

Developers / Slimserver as IR Transmitter
« on: October 10, 2007, 06:26:27 pm »
Hi Folks,

using the IRBlaster Plugin Slimserver is able to transmit IR Codes (configured by LIRC remote definitions). This also works over the cli port ("CLI: <player> irblaster send <device> <button>"). Are there any plans to support this feature instead of a gc100? Or can this be implemented as GSD?

best regards,
