Installation issues / Re: Core as a VM on a mac OSX server
« on: February 12, 2012, 07:23:01 pm »
i do not know of anyone that has made it work in vmware, but it has been known to work in virtualbox.
it needs to be the dhcp server if you want the network plug and play stuff to work and if you want to run media directors. which means you need at least two physical networks on the vm host as well.

Users / Re: Insteon 2412U

Insteon doesnt really have "scenes" in the sense that some central controller is programmed with group associations. And yes, currently lmce talks to one device at a time. However, there is plenty of bandwidth on the insteon network so it would take some pretty crazy sized installation to cause problems there.
Most insteon devices are both a controller and a receiver though, so you can always associate one switch with several lights to retain usefull offline control.
I was also the one that was working on the c++ device, but I do not know c++ well enough to get very far, and in the end decided that the ruby code is plenty sufficient.
Sure it would be nice to support insteon groups at some point in the future, but really i cant think of much benefit.

Users / Re: MythTV using Raid Media Array Only

it should only use drives that are marked as "use automatically" and should default the the drive with the most free space.
if that isnt enough, you can force each recording profile to use a specific storage group, and the system creates separate storage groups for each drive. you do have to set that for each show that you want to record, but it is an option at least.

probably at least as reliable.
another advantage of knx is the ability to use dimmers.

here is what it comes down to:
it is fine to discuss integrating someone else's software, as long as that software is not explicitly illegal.
it is not fine to discuss techniques for circumventing the drm or encryption on the bluray discs.

Installation issues / Re: X10 RS232 computer interface from china
« on: January 09, 2012, 02:44:14 am »
doubtfull that it will work. question is, do you have the skills to make it work?
if not, then why are you considering it?

Installation issues / Re: 1004 install unmet dependencies
« on: December 30, 2011, 09:02:57 am »
the missing deb was added to the repo.
if upgrading, you may have to manually upgrade libxine2 (via apt-get).

Installation issues / Re: 1004 install unmet dependencies
« on: December 30, 2011, 02:14:38 am »
need to chase the dep tree backwards until you find the actual broken package. in this case, its probably libxine2, so try to apt-get install it and see what it gives as an error. if its still complaining of broken deps, try to install that too, etc.

Installation issues / Re: Outside Access; No access with high ports?
« on: December 29, 2011, 04:07:17 pm »
the firewall options are just an interface to iptables, and dont do any artificial filtering of ports. seems to me like your isp is probably blocking that too, but you could use tcpdump on the external interface to look for connection attempts.
must not be any competition there if the isp can get away with such a stupid policy :(

Users / Re: All user data on disk B
« on: December 24, 2011, 06:45:40 pm »
the only component that uses that strategy is mythtv, and you can force it to use a specific drive when you create recording profiles if you want.
otherwise when ripping a disc, you tell it where to save.

Installation issues / Re: Canvassing for expereince with single NIC hybrid
« on: December 23, 2011, 06:18:23 am »
a hybrid is just a single system, and as such the md portion boots along with it since its just a few applications.
it should work with wifi as external, but i dont think it has been tested in this configuration in awhile.
your best bet would be to also leave a wired nic in as the "internal", even if you dont intend to run any media directors.

Users / Re: Z-Wave Compatibility?
« on: December 21, 2011, 04:04:19 pm »
not all z-wave devices are automatically supported, but most classes of device have templates now. your best bet is to look and see if theres a template for it or a similar device from another manufacturer, or look in the source code for support.
it would help to know exactly which device you are looking at too. if its not supported, we can suggest one that is.

Users / Re: Power Down in the event of a power outage
« on: December 19, 2011, 08:09:26 pm »
the UPS route is going to be easiest, and the tools already exist for it.
as you mention, APC is the best choice for this, and there is a daemon for linux to monitor it and respond appropriately.
I'm sure something else could be figured out given the flexibility of lmce, but thats gonna be your best bet to get going right away.
