Users / LinuxMCE suddenly rings
« on: November 14, 2014, 07:23:20 am »
LMCE suddenly started ringing. I have tons of unknown entries in the call log but non on the specific ring times. Any ideas what it might be and what might cause it? Also what are all those entries?

Code: [Select]

Users / way to play/select music. another player?
« on: November 06, 2014, 11:54:14 am »
Anyone has some experience with alternative ways to play music on lmce? I either am missing the flexibility or am using it differently cause I cannot seem to get to easily play audio. My use case is pretty simple: I know where the audio that I want to play is located on the system but cannot easily reach it. when I do a search I can only play one file at a time but I just want to play the folder. I only managed to do that on the public share but the audio I want to play is not. Any ideas?

In my mindset, I set the temperature for a room once, I might modify it empirical over time, but never ever do I change the temperature in a room daily or on a time schedule. Way more expensive to reheat a room, than to keep a room at a specific temperature. Maybe other countries/homes are different, but that is the scientific consensus in Germany.

If that is the case we still have along way to go. I never heard about that yet. Here in the Netherlands the temperature is not set to a constant but also not totally to 0 at night. I always thought that it was cheaper to lower the temp a bit but not to much. But as u say the experts know best. Plain logic I think that the bigger the temp difference the bigger the loss and it also depends on the amount of isolation your room has.

I have tried several cheap gyro mini keyboards, and found this one ticks all the boxes for me. 14 quid.

Slightly weird is that the buttons are swapped, but when you are using it it kind of makes sense (closer to your thumb). Battery lasts nearly forever. F keys are all there and don't require shift/function to be pressed. Good range. Also has a card slot in case that's useful for you. My only gripe is that it doesn't have a laser pointer, but to be fair it's only the cats who suffer.

thx a lot mate.

I dont think I get the family used to a keyboard thought. Searching for your item I also found a remote that is more like a standard remote:

Maybe that will do a nice job. I also ordered this model.

Keep the suggestions coming.

If its for a RaspberryPi based MD, why don't you try the latest CEC control that phenigma and tschak implemented?

That remark was more to specify the pricepoint. Also then you lack the airmouse. However for that setup with a tv that supports it it is probably the best and easiest solution. I try to find the best remote price quality wise for lmce instead of just fixing my own situation. I noticed that while having a joggler, android tablet and phone at hand the airmouse (gyration remote) is still the device mostly used; its flexible regarding location but always at hand, almost always charged and fast. Best would be if we can find a device that does the job below well or around the $20 mark. I ordered that remote so will try it when it arrives.

more suggestions still welcome....

I have used Logitech Mini for years with Linuxmce. Great little device. Looks cool and does the job well.

That seems a bit overpriced and over featured. Especially compared to an md price for a rpi ;-). I ordered the first one which is only $14 and will see if it does a better job then the Mele F10

any more suggestions welcome

Users / RF remote, gyration replacement

Anyone already found a proper and affordable replacement for the gyration remotes? My last one is dying and I like to have a comparable replacement. I have a Mele F10 which is not getting close to the gyration in opens and feel.
I also sow the ones below but maybe someone already found a very good solution.....

It's not really code just shell script I referred to:

Um?  No.  You can edit the device and describe it any way you would like, just like every other device in the system.
I mean the name squeezelite promotes itself with to the slimserver. That can be the description or whatever. It just a minor change which might help people when debugging.

Heh.  Ok.  I don't see any code or feature patches to support pulseaudio anywhere in the system in trac anywhere.  And since we don't support pulseaudio I will not add specific pulseaudio code until the system supports it.  That being said: Have you even tried it?  Have you put your pulse:sink name in as the output device?  I don't think you've even tried it and from the squeezelite documentation it appears that it should work as is.

I tried that when I created the squeezelite template and launchscript. The only option that is there beside the alsa options is pulse in general:
Code: [Select]
dcerouter_1039929:~# squeezelite -l
Output devices:
  default                        - Playback/recording through the PulseAudio sound server
You can however specify the sink as an environment variable as I did in my launchscript.

Look, I'm getting really frustrated that you that certain people continually complain about things without actually trying to do much of anything about it.  I work *really* hard here *for free* to try and support all kinds of things for people, including things that I don't use like the damn squeezeslave/squeezelite players.   So thanks for testing, I'm glad you're complaining that it doesn't slice and dice and make damn Julien fries at the same freakin' time.  I'm really happy that it's 'working' but not 'properly' becuase it doesn't describe the device to your satisfaction and that it doesn't support an audio subsystem that we don't support at all.

I feel your frustration. I spend just a fraction like you do and all my efforts towards most linuxmce things (like squeezelite) are wasted time since they are not used anyway. Back then I tried to create a separate device for squeezelite but could not get Linuxmce to recognize it as media playable device and stopped trying just because I felt it would end up as not being used anyway.

Since pulseaudio is on the list of wishes of some devs I thought that something small as supporting a pulsesink would not be a problem since it does not influence normal behavior although I understand it has zero priority.

But heeee J.... all your efforts are very much appreciated! We all love ya.  :-*

Seems to work!

I still think it be nice if you add a proper description to the devices (maybe even the room). And an optional pulsesink selection. I did both in the code I posted previously (not the room though)

Has anyone tried this using the Banana PI?
1GB RAM, 1GHZ CPU and 1Gb NIC would help with some performance issues. I believe it's compatible, just more expensive.

Yes. It's on the list: Phenigma has one. However the vdpau support is not feature complete yet:

so if someone capable of extending that please do....

An we would welcome LMCE taking our Open Dianemo source and integrating it with the LMCE code base. Yes there would be that approx. 20% that would be DPL but for personal use that would have no impact at all.

What I meant was replace the LMCE parts so that LMCE will be totally open. We already have a personal license.

Looking at the state of the current kickstarter campaign fills me with nothing but sadness. Either something is wrong with what is communicated or it is not communicated through enough channels. Can any of the (linuxmce&dianemo) users here comment why they don't support it and what would make them change their mind and start backing the project???

Thank you so much for sharing your feelings.

There is certainly a lot of rudeness floating around. It might even be useful to put something that measures the rudeness and helpfulness of users clearly visible on the forum. Maybe the attitude is the consequence of LinuxMCE being such a beast and having not developers to get it quickly enough to were we all envision it. The people who do put their time and effort in have such a dedication that whatever time others spend is always a fraction of theirs. Even though I totally agree that being nice will get us much further, please try to see it from their side also. (Thinking of how many good devs we might have lost because of rudeness makes me wanna cry....). We can only hope one day the rude also see that its much better to have as many aboard as possible even if they think a bit differently or spend less time. Everybody has their own path and we can use any contribution however big or small.

I hope you can reconsider and think of all the love that must be here to actually get something big as LinuxMCE into being... not everybody around is rude and even the rude must have some good sides ;-)

I understand that you feel you need to protect it. However I don't think that it will really take of quickly if it is not really open. My feeling saids we need some companies like yours or in other areas (and preferably bigger) that really support and push forward the system. I think it's to risky business wise to build on software like this if it is not really open (and no big company supporting it, and even those fuck up most of the time in the long run somewhere). It could work if the base is open (like linuxmce and you have some nice add-ons that make it more smooth but the basic should function.

However since the relative little response here in the community I suppose most here are cheapskates not willing to donate even one penny to make it really open. Never expected it to be that way. The only excuse is that it is not clearly stated that your work will make linuxmce also get rid of the current constrictions (and to me that is also still not clear).

Why should a private entity care if it is PPL or GPL? For Joe Doe the PPL does not put any restriction to the use of LinuxMCE

I thought you are not allowed to supply LinuxMCE installations without a license from Pluto?

That's correct.
Does that mean we will also have linuxmce without any more constrictions? I think that might interest more users here. Any LMCE users interested?
