Installation issues / Re: Does each media director need a TV Tuner?
« on: August 24, 2008, 05:01:31 pm »
Another note here: you can put TV cards anywhere, in the core and/or in media directors. Sometimes, putting a TV card in a media director makes sense, as most of the time, there already is an antenna outlet near your TV.

No matter where your TV cards are, any media director is able to utilize any TV card in your whole setup.

Regarding 100mbit vs. 1gbit networks. Make sure you have a QUALITY switch. A good quality 3Com, Cisco or HP switch 100mbit, will be better than a cheap run of the mill gigabit switch.

samuelmukoti,

yes, the EPG and channel list on the orbiter should be fairly easily done, by using the HADesigner. No need for programming if I get things right.

The phone out is another issue.

Users / Re: Setting up VoIP....
« on: August 22, 2008, 09:10:34 am »
Hello Colin,

I started playing with VoIP a month or so ago after I signed up for my broadband provider's VoIP. I understand from previous comments (I think Zaerc or Thom) that SIP can be a little challenging to setup when you are routing over NATs - assuming this is because of the UDP component.

a couple of notes:
  • Because you do NAT, please read the note regarding NAT on the wiki http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/1&1  Especially the part about externhost and localnet
  • You should try to use the automatic phone lines setup in the web admin page, and not play with the SIP settings manually
  • As far as I know, the built in dialplan already asked for a 9 to be dialed for an outside line

Basically, the default SIP phone line wizard works fine. If you do NAT, there is some additional configuration that you have to take care of.

hth
regards
Oliver

It used to be, that the Maemo orbiter running on the Nokia machines was able to initiate phone calls. i.e. you click dial on the Maemo orbiter, and select the phone, that should be used to execute the call. Right now, that functionality is broken. Hopefully, it gets fixed in the Telecom Plugin.

Right now, EPG is not visible on the Maemo orbiter ( which really is a shame ), but that is something that should be possible in the very near feature. Again, this functionality existed already, but had been botched in the past releases.

To summarize your thoughts:

LinuxMCE is not stable and secure enough to be trusted as the only security system?!

Or did I misinterpret your statements?

hari,

what is the reason to have a dedicated alarm setup in parallel to LinuxMCE?

You don't need to replace your existing router, but it makes things easier for a couple of things. I am using an external router and it works.

HOWEVER, LinuxMCE MUST be your DHCP server for all the things it needs to control, and you MUST have two network cards for LinuxMCE being capable to control devices on the network.

My original response here was by way of an update of where we are at... I in no way was trying to 'brag' about having something you dont'.  Why would would you think we would 'loose anything' ? If we had any sense that we might 'loose something' we would not be here at all. We gain enormously by participating here and by having the community use/improve our code. Our Dianemo customers are not the people who frequent this forum... they want a professionally installed working system that hides all the technical issues from them.

Have I ever questioned how much you contribute to this community? No... I dont think I have. So all I would ask is that you treat me and my company in the same way.

Andrew, thank you for clarifying this. I hope I did get my point across, with regards to the expectations a lot of people had from the initial release of VDR, and the shortcomings they found out later on. I do appreciate everybodies work within the LinuxMCE community, whether it is developers, support people, or users who share their setup in the wiki, for the rest to benefit from.

During the last couple of month, I closely followed what other people were doing, and how open they were in providing the code they were (and are) working on. This gave (and gives) me a sense of progress, and that feeling is very nice.

All the best to you as well, and I am looking forward to whatever might come out.

Best regards

Oliver

PS: And comparing your message count with mine, clearly shows, who is doing more for support in here. ;)

Andrew,

thank you for your update, and I am looking forward to any updates that come out of the third party developing the VDR integration.

I really am grateful for the amount of time and effort you put into supporting people in the forum.

I hope, that people get together to make sure, we don't spend time twice or thrice, because we are not talking openly with each other (like the Z-Wave example hari pointed out).

A lot of people have been holding their breath for VDR to finally be there. From your statement, I take it, that you yourself are less than amused, to not get the type of ongoing information from the third party that once would expect from professional people.

I read your original statement regarding the VDR implementation like this:
"Hey, VDR is working fine for our customers, but we don't give it to you, because otherwise we might loose something"
Looking at the time and effort a lot of people put into LinuxMCE (effort you as a dealer profit from), that understanding caused some bad feelings, hence my reaction.

I am looking forward to the end of August, to finally send my VDR system into retirement :)

Best regards

Oliver

Andrew,
That's cool. There are already three company which offers commercial versions of LinuxMCE. I'm also planning to start the same thing. But I'm wondering about LiveTV. VDR is good but it doesn't work on MDs. MythTV works fine on MDs but it isn't stable. From my experience streaming LiveTV is the most requested feature after lighting control. So, how, guys, you solve that? Just don't offer it at all?

Well in our Dianemo builds we have LiveTV & recorded TV working on MD's and now have bi-directional KNX/EIB implimented too. We plan to migrate z-wave to our bi-directional code soon too.

I find it very disturbing, that we still not have the functionality in the general LMCE distribution, that you provide to your customers.

What does

We will release an update for the current shipping lmcevdr version in LinuxMCE thats is based on the newer Dianemo code base imminently.

means in terms of a timeframe?

Weeks, month ...

It was always my assumption that the strong point of FOSS projects is the early availability to all parties involved, instead of going the commercial route, and first build everything secretively and come out much later.

Hey guys,

I am cool with Andrew and Michael working together. It was just a small thing I created a couple of month ago.

And it seems Andrew and Michael are working together to make the n-itt Orbiter even better. Now all that is missing, is one of them to fix the dial out capability  ;D

Good night all. See you in the morning.

Andrew,

great news. So, can I take away the link to possy.de from the wiki, and we use yours in the future?

toko,

VDR currently only allows LiveTV on the hybrid itself. This should change one day.

MythTV allows LiveTV on any system in the house.

Change your setup to use MythTV for the time being, and you will able to view LiveTV on any Media Director in your home.

Michael,

of course. Thanks to Andrew and his team, the VDR integration is getting along. And they probably have good reasons for their course of action. It still bugs me a bit though :) as the VDR implementation as it is there right now, is much more stable than the MythTV implementation, when it comes to DVB-S signal problems.

PS: Michael, the ATI RemoteWonder works in LinuxMCE as well ;)
