Both davegravy and Crumble make some good points there which makes me wonder:

- How much work would it be to get totally rid of Pluto and have lmce GPLed or is that still lightyears away?

That would be valuable for all parties. I think the clarity will help a lot. We might get more interest from companies and it would be easier to sell complete systems. (you might even consider offering that in the kickstarter). That would actually make sense. If you can supply a relatively cheap out of the box pnp experience the target group would be much larger. The cheaper the hardware (as long as it does properly what it needs to do) the more people can contribute to the software(development).

My suggestion is still aim low to get everybody to support. I don't know how many lmce user there are but you could think of some kind of subscription model also (like here: ).

I am sure everybody would love to have you 24/7 on lmce and everybody is willing to spend a few bucks on a better system. However I think it needs to be clear what gets done.

Did you also discuss with dianemo/totallymaxed? I assume they also are willing to pay a few bucks on a regular basis to get you coding 24/7 on lmce. That would also boost their product......

My suggestion is to first start a thread here on lmce: make some suggestions with what you would do/make (and an estimate how much time/money each item costs). Then others can add suggestions/requests. Then you can put those on as pledges, do the ones that get fully funded and decide on the rest yourself....

I am not sure what is a normal fee (you probably get more normally) but I would aim lower. There must be a lot of people who would love to make $50k a year, especially coding for lmce. If you don't make a lot and someone else asks more for work they love to do it might prevent them to give. For some it might give the wrong feeling... just my 2c.

good luck!

There already is a pnp template

how many entries you have?

Check if there are no double entries (by removing drives or moving stuff manually). I removed all entries from the database and did a rescan and that made a lot of difference.

Look at the VDR wiki page you linked. In case you have a problem, translate it using google translate, and you can answer the question yourself.

I must be missing something reading that since you reply as if it is very obvious. I see 2 versions of VDR on apt-cache show vdr on my box (1.7.20-8yavdr1~lucid and 1.6.0-9ubuntu2) and both seem to be older then the 1.7.22 version where it is supposed to be included. So the question is if someone added the patch and if not can it be included. (same question of course applies for mythtv)

thx a lot!

Does anyone know if the Mythtv version and VDR version that come with LinuxMCE have UniCable/EN50494 support ?

and if not yet can it be included?

A reboot switched the NVidia and AK4571 soundcard so I had to revert back to 1 as the card. The /etc/pluto/simplephone.conf file seems to be overwritten all the time but not with the correct values but with the default values. I changed the file manually by changing the alsa device part to:

Code: [Select]
playback_dev_id=ALSA: plughw:1
ringer_dev_id=ALSA: plughw:1
capture_dev_id=ALSA: plughw:1

setted the unmutable attirbute with:
chattr +i /etc/pluto/simplephone.conf

and then quick reloaded the router.
I now can call although the other side complained about the bad sound quality. Mainly they asked me to get closer to the mic cause when I was like within a meter it was ok but further away the sound was not loud enough. Is there a way/configuration to improve that cause I read somewhere that it should function nicely up to 20 meters.

Ok. So I removed the device again. The Vendor ID in the template is 05560004 and lsusb saids: Bus 002 Device 005: ID 0556:0004 Asahi Kasei Microsystems Co., Ltd so that looks ok to me, correct me if I'm wrong.

sudo aplay -l gives me:
Code: [Select]
**** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices ****

  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 2: AK4571 [AK4571], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

Since the card is the 2nd I suppose mine should be plughw:2. I went to Advanced > Configuration > Device templates, selected template nr 1963 (phoenix audio technologies - Solo usb conference microphone) changed the #74 Alsa Output Device to plughw:2 and saved the template.

after rebooting it still does not work. When I make a call it is still ringing on the default sound card (not sure if that is suppose to happen).

how should I debug this?

I have a phoenix solo usb that I would like to use with linuxmce. I connected it to my hybrid which runs 3.0.0-32-generic and it get recognized properly:

Code: [Select]

However linuxmce did not notify me of anything and no template was added. I manually added the template (Solo USB Conference Microphone #1963) to the hybrid but it still shows as Registered: No and calling does not work.

Anything else I need to configure/setup?

thx a lot

That is exactly what I mean. There are several posibilities and I think that there are many use cases.

HDMI cables can be pretty long so I guess a lot of hybrid users could add an additional MD without requiring any additional hardware & power usage.

USB cable has its limitations but adding a touchscreen usb monitor and use it as a fixed orbiter would be a great feature that many might be able to use.

On a separate MD I agree that the electrical power difference would depend on the usage. However by adding a bit faster cpu the electrical power difference when running would not increase much but the performance increase would be very welcome.

Could you create a wiki page with a list with what is working and what is not working (maybe with links to future tickets)?
