i wouldn't say a novice couldn't get it working considering my 1st experience with linux was when I installed it, but I would agree the video is quite misleading IMO. Never the less, im the type that doesn't mind getting his hands dirty so it suited me fine.

as far as the whole dhcp thing, thats really a 'follow the instructions' deal.

Good luck with your media center search.

came across this earlier today after I was able to get audio out of my card
http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Fm_radio#What_is_required

basically, I need to reset my sound card... http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=601522

Solution was not to install the package they mentioned, but to run this command :asoundconf reset-default-card

and i used the ivtv-radio driver(?). Anyways, now to add it to myth...


and its been added. and works. now to try it on a md...

Hi,

I would also like to get FM radio working on the pvr-500. I also have the Nova 500 dual tuner that should be able to pick up DVB radio.

Does anyone know if this is planned or if it can be done simply?

Prepared to be a test subject if anyone has any ideas?



have you tried to get it working yet? Mine seems to work except for the fact there is no audio output. I think it has to do with the sound not leaving the fm card because I dont have the proper switch enabled.

Or something like that.

But i've gotten the programs to 'work' for the most part, which is why this is so frustrating.
Anyone know why an audio signal from an internal pci card wouldnt go to the sound card for output? How does myth do it?

I'm not sure about whats needed to get the PVR-500 receiving FM... looks like it may well be a firmware/driver issue.

However I can confrim that under vdr all of the Radio channels are already working fine and that is independent of the DVB card you choose to use. If your DVB card is working (we use T500's and also Avermedia 771's) then you will get all the available DVB' based digital radio channels available from the MUX's on your tuned transmitter :-)

Thanks for the reply, but im here in the US and wont be using dvb. Maybe I should install it just for fm tuning?

So i have this hauppage wintv pvr mce-500. Tuner works great. Plug and play. But i listen to a lot of over the air radio too.

Long story short, I have tried everything I know (which aint much) and the fm function appears to work but there is no sound. i've tried various things like Radio, Gnomeradio fm-tools. all with the same result. No sound. And there is no sound output jack on the hauppage card so i cant loop it back to the input on the board sound card. Any suggestions on what I should do would be greatly appreciated. My end goal is to eventually use this as a scenario in lmce. so I can listen to radio without tying up my receiver, and hopefully use it in a multi room setup.

card - hauppage wintv pvr mce-500
board - asus m2npv-vm mobo
im running lmce 0704

help!

Hi,

I also spotted that sentence :

If you would like to use this event as an alarm clock, choose what rooms this event should act as an alarm clock in. It will appear on the Orbiters' sleeping menu and you can change the time on the Orbiter.

Is it really possible to change time of waking up procedure on Orbiter ?

Thanks in advance,

regards,

Bulek.


I did some checking and that was incorrect on a few fronts.

Both from my pda and the xp orbiter, you can only turn the alarm on and off. You cant edit the time. Also, I couldnt find a way into the sleeping menu / scenarios from the master bedroom orbiter. I recently upgraded that MD so that it runs UI2 instead of UI1 and the sleeping menu is gone. I think it is possible to add the button to UI2, but I will have to play around with it.

also, most of this information was in the wiki already so there wasn't much for me to add.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Some kind of a sleeptimer for mds
« on: December 30, 2007, 11:58:51 am »
anyone have any idea how one could dim a computer monitor? I sense it would have to be some sort of device that communicated with the desktop manager? Im new to linux so pardon me if I sound cracked out. i've been trying to figure this out for a while.

as far as the sleep timer, thats easy. Im going to post in the wiki how to setup timed events and whatnot. will be done later today. its sleepytime here in La :o

I have a buncha x10 equipment...dont really WANT to buy all new stuff, but might if the functionality is better than that of the x10. I have a lot of headaches with it (x10) and kinda want something more reliable. So yeah, Im following it.

BTW, Insteon is WAY MORE reliable than X10 on it's best day...

How many times have you pressed the button and waited ... waited... to see if the command went through...

Insteon is 40 times faster.. and automatically CONFIRMS EVERY message...
you press the button, and before your finger comes off, the command has been processed!



Maybe im lucky, but x10 controllers have always been lightning fast. Do you mean commands when sent via a serial device from a computer? In that case yes it slow as hell AND I keep getting these 'checksum error' messages in the log. Not really qualified to diagnose it but im trying to figure it out the best I can. it pisses me off when thing break ;D

I added a test timed event to my system and if it works i'll post my settings here. I have gotten the above to work for me though. For example, "house to sleep mode" kills all the lights turns of the living room display, and starts playing my 'sleepytime' playlist in the bedroom.

Hope this Helps.

Can you please add some more info to Wiki about your procedure of setup ? How to play playlist ?

Bulek.

Ok, figured it out.

1. Log into Dcerouter

2. In frame on left side, scroll down to bottom to the 'Events Handler' category. Click 'Timed Events'

3. Enter the name of your new event in the box (the only place to enter it) and choose 'Day of the Week Based' and hit 'Add'

4. You will then see a page similar to the one here. You will see the rooms you can use, and you will need to enter the time for the event to be fired. Save at this point.

5. Then you will need to add the event to be fired. From the drop-down list, choose Media Plugin. Its a child of DCErouter I believe. When you settle on Media Plugin, the box to right will be updated with the appropriate commands. choose command MH play media and hit add.

6. This will bring up the parameters box and you can enter your setting here. Remember, use the path provided to the file in the database .You can find it under 'media files sync' from the top navigation menu under 'Files & Media').

7. Save you should be good to go.

Couple notes:
DO NOT test the command from there!!!! It will delete the command (but not the event). If you must test, either set the alarm for a few minutes ahead or goto the devices tree and send the command directly to the device.


;D

Bump

messed something up

when i figure it out, you will know.

btw, when I try and fire a test command from the advanced events page, it deletes the event (and params!) Which is why i normally test everything from the devices page...anyways can you tell im bored?

more to follow.

I just appreciate the work that you and the other folks are putting into this for the benefit of everyone else. I read a lot more than I respond on here and i've been following your progress ( and frustrations ) with insteon.

Which parameters are you having problems with? Almost all have a tool tip. Also, have you experimented with sending test commands to the device to flush out what does and doesn't work?

I use the media plugin, and I use the MH Play Media Command. It gives me these parameters:

#13 Filename (string)    -  /home/public/data/audio/Internal HDD-CORE (sda1) [47]/Don McLean/American Pie/01 American Pie.mp3 <---I get this path from the database.

#2 PK_Device (int)
   - not needed here to work (in my experience)

#44 PK_DeviceTemplate (int)    - Also not needed to work

#45 PK_EntertainArea (string)    - 1, 2  <---this means the bedroom and living room. Separate each area by comma and you should be good to go.

#29 PK_MediaType (int)    - depends on what your playing. I always put this but i dont know if its needed.
playlists = 21
video = 5
audio = 2
? = 17 <---meaning my cheat sheet hasn't gotten there yet.

#117 Repeat (int)    - 0 = default for media, 1= repeat, -1= dont repeat.

#116 Resume (bool) - "true" means go back to what you were doing before. "False" means dont.

I added a test timed event to my system and if it works i'll post my settings here. I have gotten the above to work for me though. For example, "house to sleep mode" kills all the lights turns of the living room display, and starts playing my 'sleepytime' playlist in the bedroom.
