Users / Re: Replace Savant Systems media controler

Keep what you have, and ask someone to modify it to your needs.

OR prepare to invest at least a couple of month to get yourself acquainted with how LinuxMCE works, what kind of equipment you currently have, and how it is controlled, and how LinuxMCE might fit in.

LinuxMCE works best if each video output is served by a dedicated Media Director (for example a Raspberry PI2). Many other automation systems work by utilizing HDMI matrix switches.

Where are you located?

Did you install 1404, or did you upgrade to 1404?

id-my-disk is an old package that we do not have source for. lmce-media-identifier is a rewrite that replaces id-my-disk - it does not yet cover all things id-my-disk did, but is a start that covers the CD

thank you for your generous offer.

We went ahead and gone to git(hub).

Is it save to say that the system didn't start as a 1404 system but got upgraded from a different version?

Change line 50 from
service eibd restart
service eibd restart || :

apt-get -f install

and it should work again.

Sounds like a plan.

The eggtimer works great!

Thanks - feedback is always appreciated.

can we run multiple eggtimers at the same time without any problem? Fe I would like to turn on light in front of my house for 5 minutes, in the back for 3 minutes...

You can have as many as you like in parallel. On Cyprus they always have at least 3-4 runnin in parallel (for each workspace motion detector)

This looks like a known issue.

The original EMI id_my_disc can no longer be used due to us not having the code, but the binary only. phenigma went ahead and wrote a new EMI. The package still needs a Conflicts / Replaces option to remove the old id_my_disc package. For now, what you can try to do is, manually remove id_my_disc (dpkg -r id_my_disc), and install the new package.

You apt database looks a bit screwed.

This is my list of installed packages re EIB and pth.

Code: [Select]

This is where I got my pthsem lib from:

Code: [Select]

I used to have the stuff from mkoegler as well, but for quite some time now, we are building the libs ourselves.

Does the above help?

I've created a small wiki page for it.

I've created a 1404 binary for you at - download and save as eggtimer in /usr/pluto/bin

The eggtimer might be usable with a bit of trickery and a setup KNX device that does not point to a real KNX device. My idea would be:

* setup a KNX light device (virtLight)
* upon motion detect check if the virtLight is on - if not, create an eggtimer to turn it on for 10seconds
* if virtLight is on and another motion trigger event happens, turn on the real light.

No idea, if this works, but I would go that way.

One thing that might work is the eggtimer device. It is currently not distributed, but has been working fine for quite a bit.

Let me know what version of LinuxMCE you are running, and I can give you a binary for it. Put that into /usr/pluto/bin - create an eggtimer device under the CORE.

Check for details.

Parameterize your KNX motion detectors to be less sensitive.

Sounds good!
Will there be an "update" function to migrate to a newer version?

To update an fully configured running version to a blank new one would be very time consuming (at least for me)...

At the moment there is no one that has the energy, will or need to create  such a script. Some people, including myself, have been happy with apt-get dist-upgrading since before 0810. Never easy, never for the faint of heart.

Sambuca recently went through an upgrade from 1204 to 1404 and noted a couple of things in a wiki entry about it.
