Users / Re: Low energy MCE configuration?
« on: October 06, 2013, 08:03:27 pm »
I have not experienced a environment friendly spirit here yet. A bigger setup often uses more power. However I think that if you chose your components properly you don't need a laptop. At least if you also need some performance (otherwise there might be other options, I saw some links to software that runs on routers instead). If you need performance I think you can create a pretty efficient core. Take a look here . There must be many more similar sites that give good info.

Good luck and keep us updated.

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

...but speaking on behalf of the cheapskates; how would contributing towards LMCE compare to paying out for a dianemo license?

I think the main thing is that dianemo already have a 12.04 release out with latest mythtv etc. Also people expect support when they pay and continuity. When it is clear what people will get I think they are willing to pay. Personally I don't want to pay for a dianemo license and would prefer to pay to the open source variant.....

here ya go:

Code: [Select]
<esperegu> any guru on mapping/configuring remotes? I want to define a specific button on a remote and have the xev output but cannot seem to figure out what to put into the template.
<esperegu> I tried media,85,D in the template but that does not seem to do anything
<TSCHAKMac> after adding this, you need to be sure, to reload the router. Is the scan code indeed 85 ?
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: part of the output of xev when I press the button is in
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: it is the middle mouse button (button 2) and key 85
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: I also tried a mapping like: 4,2=2,176
<esperegu> 5,2=3,176
<TSCHAKMac> uh, no
<TSCHAKMac> you'll need to get more data in this case
<TSCHAKMac> comment out #loglevels in the media director's /etc/pluto.conf
<TSCHAKMac> then killall -9 OrbiterGL
<TSCHAKMac> and grep -rin "GenericHID" /var/log/pluto/XX_name_of_your_launchorbiter.log
<TSCHAKMac> you'll see a scan code when you press the button, hopefully
<TSCHAKMac> use that value.
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: k. thx. awesome. will do that.
<TSCHAKMac> be sure to uncomment the LogLevels line again, and killall -9 OrbiterGL after all of this, so you don't needlessly log things when you're done.
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: does not seem to give a code there
<TSCHAKMac> hm ok
<TSCHAKMac> then some code will have to be added to deal with it.
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: :-(. that easy to do in the template or is that hardcore coding?
<TSCHAKMac> no, it won't be able to be handled in the template
<TSCHAKMac> you'd need to modify Orbiter itself
<esperegu> :-(. outofmyleague ;-)
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: any chance/way I can supply you with the right info so you could add it one day you are working on the specific part in the code anyway?
<TSCHAKMac> no, it doesn't work that way, unfortunately.
<TSCHAKMac> esperegu: whatdevice is it?
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: I got an rf03 on ebay:
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: I also created a template for it but that does not have all the buttons:
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: is there info somewhere with guidelines on which actions are preferred for buttons on a remote?
<esperegu> TSCHAKMac: (I mean which are the actions best to put behind the buttons in lMCE)
<TSCHAKMac> no, there isn't. The point was to map stuff to what made best sense for the remote at hand on a case by case basis.

Let's face it: The people who are using LinuxMCE these days are mainly cheapskates. They use it cause it is free as in beer. Some are here, cause they think they can make a quick buck out of it for clients.

hence my suggestion to attract more people willing to spend some money on the software.

Regarding the current users: how many active installs are there? Is that visible in the statistics somewhere?

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.

Users / Re: UniCable/EN50494 support in MythTV/VDR
« on: April 18, 2013, 01:19:15 pm »
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 ****
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC887-VD Analog [ALC887-VD Analog]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 0: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 1: ALC887-VD Digital [ALC887-VD Digital]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  Subdevice #0: subdevice #0
card 1: NVidia [HDA NVidia], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]
  Subdevices: 1/1
  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?
