Feature requests & roadmap / Re: MCE gui

Yes, you can modify the look of LMCE using the HA Designer (or QuickDesigner). Please watch the screencasts tschak909 did (you can find them in the developers section).

A small note: With LMCE you can mix and match your home automation equipment. You can have 95% of your home use Z-Wave, and for the last 5% use some X-10 stuff, where the X-10 disadvantages like speed are not that big of a deal. I, for one, started with X-10 in my home theater room, where speed is no issue. The rest of my home will receive either Z-Wave or X-10. A Z-Wave switch sends a command to LMCE. LMCE in turn switches on the X-10 light.

That's the beauty of LMCE.


I will look into it. I have the logic correct, but I am too stupid to escape stuff correct.

Maybe I get things done in time for 0810 release.

Users / Popcorn Hour board
« on: April 12, 2009, 01:12:44 pm »
imho, the board of the Popcorn Hour, which is used in various forms in different boxes, has a lot of potential as a media director. HDi for example bundles it with a Blu Ray drive in a nice enclosure ( And the pure board (without any enclosure), can be had for fairly little money, 250EUR, iirc. You have HDMI, Component, S/P-DIF, USB and more connectors available.

shouldn't we just setup a small link on the Kubuntu Desktop that executes the messagesend you pointed out?


I am not too happy with message boxes appearing on the MDs as well.

But you really should include your TV into the LMCE picture. It is SO nice, to have LMCE take care of turning on, tuning in, and adjusting the TV set to each program, and adjusting the receiver based upon listening to music, or watching a DVD. That's what LMCE is about. To have control over the environment, without the need for other remotes etc.

Regarding message boxes: There is an option to only show some messages on an Orbiter. You might want to play with that.

meh, should have read the logs. 

+Not starting device 43 Bluetooth Dongle - binary "" is not found.
Does this need to be logged as a bug against 8.10?

Yes, it should be filed as a bug. Plugging in a bluetooth USB stick, should automatically install the pluto-bluetooth-dongle. If it does not, it is a bug, imho

Just a small note.

During our LinuxTag 2008 adventure, some guy came to me, and asked how we achieved synchronization. And I told him, we don't.

After a bit chatting, he said, they have been trying to achieve synchronized audio for a couple of years, and still have not had success.

[..]why don't you have LinuxMCE controlling your TV power? It sends a power off command after a period of time, unless media is playing.

That does not help if it is a static DVD menu, does it.

Glad to have saved you some trouble. To check, whether a given card works under Linux, I always check first on the LinuxTV wiki. Very helpful site.

You probably selected the room the core is in.

Is there a walk through or wiki with information on this? When I searched previously i only found responses that it was not possible to change the recording path. Ex:

totallymaxed and simon_b are probably in VDR country. And you are probably in MythTV country. VDR does not care about where you store the recordings.

Having a bunch of X-10 stuff lying around and installed, the difference between X-10 and things like Z-Wave is speed. It takes 1-2-3 to turn on a light with X-10. It is near instantaneous with Z-Wave. If you think about using a technology for every switch/light in the house, Z-Wave (or KNX/EIB) is a perfect choice.
