I just downloaded the latest build of qt5 qorbiter. It downloaded ministro-libs again, but in the end said, ministro could not provide dependencies and closed

Got this fixed with Thom last week. should be good now.

Sorry been out of town on work.

but possy, we've established nobody can be bothered to learn qml. It not like I engineered a new orbiter framework that make the ui dead simple to edit or anything...

on that main home screen
Choose advanced in from the bottom menu
On the second row, to the far right, press 'Change Styles' *might need to press twice...long story
Scroll to the bottom. Do _not_ choose Data.
Choose smokey
Things should work better for you.

*Looking for android and iOS developers to go down the rabbit hole. Soon Qt5 shall be the only QOrbiter and we will need people with native platform skills.

The default download location for qOrbiter are: latest Qt4 android apk for the Qt5 version for the MacOSX version

Yes, please use these download locations. Sorry for any confusion.

I'll take a look at the file details screen when I get home. I must have bungled something up.

Fix in svn to pause playback of a movie...the slider works nicely, but so far pausing seems not possible

Users / Re: Media attributes display priority

Looking for possible solutions for a simple issue.  Technically a feature request as I imagine it may take some work, but wanted to check here in users section to see if there is already a method.

When adding media attributes to video files I use TMDB, a great add to the web-admin and a welcome change to the Amazon attribute finder.

So many attributes are added however that the synopsis of the movie does not display when a video thumbnail is pulled up.  Movies manually tagged or tagged using Amazon with fewer attributes (director & 2-3 performers) will display the synopsis.

- Is there a method of displaying all attributes without starting the video and then navigating to attributes>more in UI2?
- Could attributes be prioritized to display before others?

* At the bottom of the list is a 'more' button i believe which shows the synopsis.
* I do not know of a way to change it manually

So far:
- qt5 version crashes after the loading screen, does not work on my android tablets
- qt4 version runs ok with some issues:
-> conrolling tv ends in endless loop on the md (vdr). The vdr on the md tries to switch channels continously beginning with channel no. 1. Only after a complete restart of the md my vdr is controllable again.
-> no floorplans
-> the description of media files is too big (font size)
-> accesss to the media files is very slow
-> where are the scenarios (sleeping, lighting, security)?
-> only two working skins

I dont have vdr, but I will take a look and see what could be causing the issue. i dont send anything in a loop, so thats very interesting.

What device (s) are you using? i cant really diagnose without knowing that. Also, are you sure you are up to date? Maverick recently had an issue that sounds similar.

I will question the 'access to media files is very slow'. On my work machine 40 miles away, its pretty fast. Would you say its slower than the onscreen orbiter? How is your wifi?

Technically there are 0 working skins because none are complete. Ive done the hard work of implementing the interface, care to join in on the "easy" part of the UI?  ;D

Scenarios. On the tablet form factor, there is a row at the top that says lights, media, etc. On the phone screen its right in front. Is the device set to a be in a room?

Floorplans. Press and hold the scenario buttons.

Phone :

Tablet :

Lastly, I recommend using the Smokey skin on android tablets. ill be changing it to the default skin soon.

Ok, since you are asking :
Booting/ shutting down md
Switching tv-channels..perhaps I'm doing something wrong?
My latest toy..IP camera. The old orbiters on Windows handles it nicely
Buttons for power need adjustment (display on, display off...I guess)
Handling for skin-updates...would it be possible, that for example qorbiter checks upon startup, if skins need an update and performs it, if needed?....I know I'm a spoiled brat...

If something else comes to mind, I'll let you know :-)

Booting / Shutting off MD. Do you mean the buttons?

Ip camera  - what specifically is going wrong? I will take a look as my latest pass on that screen wasnt exactly...detailed shall we say :)

Noted on power buttons

Not without doing some nasty things that probably shouldn't be done. ill try to see if there is a better way for updates to be initiated from the application.

Thanks as always for the feedback and testing.

So it looks like the problem was DNS related.

I went into the network settings on the router
changed the external NIC to static ip
changed the name servers to use open dns servers.
Commenced streaming music and netflix.

 No drops for over an hour

Check other radio devices, if disabling them helps. The site survey idea isn't a bad one, but I would assume more constant issues with other APs on the same channel.

Another thing to try is, to limit the AP to 802.11g instead of N, and see if that helps the consistency.

The only other radio's i have going are zwave!

Technically, the hue also counts as zwave...kinda. or zigbee...

I dont think i can turn off the N... but ill see.

Do you have a Wi-Fi laptop (or AP) with software that can do a wireless site survey?

You may have a lot of nearby devices running on the same channels as you're trying to operate on.  Many people leave their AP's on the default channels, and you can get a lot of congestion on those channels, depending on how close your neighbors are.  Changing the channel on your AP can make a big difference.

Some of the better site survey software will do signal to noise, RSSI, and other quality indicators.  Those can help determine if you have other noise sources around.  Look for poor S/N or low RSSI values, even if the "bars" are high.

Relocating the AP may also help, if you have lots of metal or concrete around it.

Hope that helps!


Yeah ive actually installed a few tools in addition to the ones that come with the wireless ap's.
*They have a built in site-survey feature which i initially used to check the different channels and how full they were
*Android app on table to basically do the same (Wifi Analyzer)

I will investigate the results more, maybe there is something im missing.

FYI - These are the devices im using

Thanks for the tips
