Where would I check this? I changed the number of IR repeats from 0 to 1 in AV Properties.

Why would this make a difference given that the control is over RS232?

Thanks,

CDM

OK. I will try this over the weekend. If I run the setup wizard, what do I look for? What is the theory behind the test?

As a test, I substituted the command string for channel down for the command string for the volume down command, which was working fine. The channel control works as expected when pushing the channel down button. This means that the command is good and is being received by the tv. The problem is the implementation of the channel down command in the template; it is not sending the command. I expect the clue is in the log snippet that I posted previously.

I recall that in the setup wizard, it is possible to associate a media type with the tuner, though I did not do this since I added the device manually. Could this be the issue?

Could someone please comment?

Thanks,

CDM

Installation issues / Re: AV Pipe Settings for Embedded TV Tuner
« on: March 21, 2018, 09:59:12 pm »

I have tried with weborbiter. No luck. It seems that the router might be confused about the arrangement of the pipes. The issue does not occur when the paths of the audio and video pipes are the same. Is anyone else using a configuration like the one in the picture, where the paths are different?

Users / DCERouter Issue: TV Tuner Channel Control
« on: March 11, 2018, 10:21:09 pm »

Hi. I have put my pipe routing issue on hold for a while and am now trying to get the embedded tuner device on my LG TV to work with my Microsoft MCE remote.

Things generally work. The LMCE controls power over RS232, the AVR switches inputs correctly, and the TV is switched to the digital tuner over RS232. I am using the internal speakers for sound. I can change volume and the number buttons work for tuning. However, I cannot get the channel +/- buttons to respond.

I don't think the device template is the problem. The SendKey function that is used works fine for some functions, just not the channel buttons. The device template is #2126. Also sending the command <$ "ka 01 00\r"$> directly to serial port also works flawlessly. That rules out the serial connection.

The best I can tell, the router is recieving the command from the USBIRT device but is not forwarding it on to the television. Please see the snippet below from DCERouter.log:

In the log, you can see the router recieving the volume commands and forwarding them to the TV. After that, you can see that it is also seeing the channel + commands but is not forwarding them. At least that is how I interepret the log.

Am I correct? Suggestions please.

Thanks,

I have been affected by the massive power outage in the Washington DC area. Power has been out for the last 3 days. I will confirm the behavior with the web orbiter when things are back to normal.

Thanks for the reply.

Installation issues / AV Pipe Settings for Embedded TV Tuner
« on: March 02, 2018, 01:09:21 am »

 I finally got rid of my CRT television and bought an LG LCD TV with RS232 Control. Serial control is working and I can reliably turn it on and off when using media scenarios that come from the media director.

I am trying to enable LiveTV using the embedded tuner as input. The problem is that I can't seem to get the pipes right. The Audio pipe from the tuner is routed to the TV input of the Denon receiver and the video output of the tuner is routed to the Digital Tuner input of the TV. See the attached image

When I switch to the LiveTV scenario. LMCE switches the TV to its embedded tuner input but then switches back immediately to the HDMI input coming from my AVR.

As always, any advice would be appreciated...

Installation issues / Mythtv Channel Icons
« on: February 14, 2018, 02:45:24 am »

From my post this evening on IRC:

Hi...is there any advice on how to download and install icons for mythtv. I ran mythtv-setup as user mythic but no luck. I have also tried copying icons to the channels directory for users root, mythtv and the one in /etc/mythtv. icons are owned as mythtv:mythtv, the same user that runs mythbackend. Any advice would be appreciated.
 
Thanks,

Developers / Re: RoamingORB iOS 11
« on: August 17, 2017, 01:47:57 am »

Three questions:

1) How do I install on an iPad? Do I need to compile the download from github to get a .dmg or other binary file?

2) Will the release from Dianemo also rin on an old iPod Touch?

3) Does the RoamingOrb previously available from the app store still work? It does not seem to be in the app store any longer. Reference: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/RoamingOrb

Thanks,

Installation issues / Re: PnP Install Broken for Phoenix USB Solo Mic
« on: March 22, 2017, 03:59:42 am »

Microphones are now working!! Darkwizard pointed me to the sound card selection for the orbiter phones in webadmin. The Solo mics appeared in the drop down. I selected them manually and did a quick reload.

As for the ticket, the script in /usr/pluto/bin definetly needs to be changed in order to work correctly. Not sure if there is anything else needed for PnP.

Nonetheless, I am good for now. Thanks again to Darkwizard.

Users / Current Z-Wave Controllers
« on: March 21, 2017, 08:11:48 pm »

Is Z-Wave still the way to go for control of lighting, climate, and security devices? If yes, what is the currently recommended controller? A lot of the ones in the wiki seem difficult to find. There are a number of MiCasaVerde Vera-lite controllers on ebay, and this is referenced in the Wiki in the Dianemo entry but the device template referenced (2060) does not exist on my system. Aeon Labs does not appear in the manufaturer drop down. What are people using?

Thanks,

CDM
