sp00nhead,

great!

Would you mind making a wiki entry out of it? You might want to look at the Insteon wiki entry made by ddamron

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Setting_Up_PLM_Template

Thanks again!

digitaldan,

if you look at the pluto_main schema, you will find that column Description in table Device is 30 characters long.

So, we need a device that is capable of receiving messages from the dcerouter, and sending messages to the dcerouter.

This DCE device needs to be able to receive notification messages from the outside world and translate those messages to DCE messages. And this DCE device needs to receive DCE messages and send them to the outside, in whatever format necessary.

Doesn't that sound a bit like a GSD with the serial/IR part removed?

Theoretically, this is possible, but I think it would defeat the purpose.

But feel free to do such an enhancement to the script ;)

benztech,

if sound is not working, you might want to take a look at the Sound Cards wiki entry. Especially the CK804 nvidia chipset does have quirks now and then. Especially over S/P-DIF as (K)Ubuntu 0710 contains a bug in there alsa configuration.

eran,

yes, you can't take a template out, that is in sqlCVS. Reason is: The exporter looks for the psc_mod date. If it is 0 it does not get exported.

The reason behind the exporter is, that you can save your own av device templates, and don't have to relearn your remotes due to a needed reinstall of lmce. Also, it allows for people to exchange the av device profiles with each other.

Is that an existing template you are trying to Export, or did you create it new? It is definitly more complex than any of the ones I have played with. Is the device working correct?

A brief look just shows that it might be the length of the insert statement.

I will look into it. But please post any information you have for this as well.

Thanks

Hello merkur2k,

nice to hear that you got some progress, even though not the way the system was intended.

Play a little bit more with it, and I am sure, one day it will Click for you, and you see why things did not work before. Good luck, and thanks your feedback regarding stuff working.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: GUI Improvements

[..]I do not have all of the devices that need to be designed, I do not have a Symbian phone, or a PDA so testing on those devices is not possible for me. 

Also keep in mind, that you don't NEED to build for all UIs. Start with a UI as a UI1 replacement for example, and build it. After re-building all the screens for a new design, you WILL have such a good understanding on how things work, that adding support for the other devices will be trivial for you.

colinjones,

just let me know, once you have created that page.

colinjones,

yes, do a general page, and modify the 1und1 one accordingly, i.e. remove the stuff in there, and just point to your new page.

Makes a lot of sense to me.

3. How or where can I found out how methods are called and who calls them? I don't understand the relationship between  "command groups", "events" and the "device category" and how they effect what GSD methods get called and by what.  Could someone explain this a little more?

A little note on command groups etc. On the orbiter when you click a button, a commandgroup gets executed. This commandgroup can contain multiple Command entries, which in turn send messages to devices or device categories. The difference is for example, if you just want to turn off all media devices in a room, you don't send a message to a single media device, but to a group "Media Devices" (I don't know if such a group really exists, but you hopefully get my point). Events happen and execute command groups.

I had already read through that page, but it really didnt help me, perhaps because I know nothing of Ruby.
[...]
How would I implement this in a generic serial device?

You do not need to know Ruby to do a GSD. Basically all you do is <$"\x0201POF\x03"$>  <-- This transmits 0x02 01POF 0x03  over rs-232. Have a look at Device Template 1779, the Pioneer Elite TV. It shows very nicely, how easy it is to do a simple GSD.

After you have your device controlled to do stuff, you can look at the Yamaha RX-V1500 template and add receiving capabilities to your device, so you will be able to let LinuxMCE know, when you did something on the box itself.

Again, this has nothing to do with knowing Ruby, but it helps to know a tiny little bit programming, even if it was just a single high school class in "Programming 101" during spring break ;)
