Users / md usb webcam setup?
« on: August 08, 2009, 08:06:16 pm »

AMD x2  32bit hybreed  (masterbedroom)
AMD 64bit md (livingroom)

I have a current wifi ip camera  Panasonic BB-HCM371A

auto detected and set up  pan/tilt function ok  but no zoom  ( working on this )
also have it on motion wrapper via CORE

I have a Logitech webcam that worked on the CORE using motion wrapper.

I moved it to the livingroom md

I got no prompt for new device when I did this...

My question is what is the next step as far as trouble shooting this issue  -or- someone has doc on this kind of setup/issue


Users / energy usage interface?
« on: August 07, 2009, 02:11:42 pm »
Any know of any interfaces that are linux compat for RDC ( residential demand control )
or shedding/trimming power usage in a said structure to a preset limit...

Most of them just use a simple induction coil on both phases to monitor incoming usage -or- outgoing in the case of alt energy equiped homes.

Since Linuxmce already has the structure to shed loads eg: zwave insteon ect.

If not this might be a usefull/needed function in the future...

Im sure a gc-100 unit could be used in this function...

Or i might get a STAMP kit and make start playing with my own interface  lol

any info at all is cool


Users / control a/v equipment via usb/ir + x10 commands ?
« on: June 15, 2009, 04:54:58 am »
I base setup is

core//masterbed// 2.1ghz amd x2 2gb 160sata 32" sharp 720p
md//livingroom// 2ghz amd 64 1gb (diskless)
orbit//livingroom// old desktop on xp

looking at a ipaq wifi hx2400 for a master control for house.. least for masterbed for the future

I wanted to setup for 5.1 sound (RCA) in masterbed
5.1 sound (RCA) livingroom

I wanted to control the A/V equipment via  IR  threw X10 knowing that some of
the equipment will have simular codes i do not want to relay commands to
one reciever or tv and in turn affecting a reciever/tv that i do not to control at the time.

I was thinking of (2) usb/IR transcievers one for the core and md or md's (for controling that rooms equipment as well as otherrooms

Something that would translate IR to X10 commands  (mini controller x10 maby -or Powermids)

(my thought on the later is if I get a home audio stereo like a Sony STG-197 i could control threw x10)
>Power toggle
>input (prob a input feed from a MD or the core)
>a/b zone

If any have tried and failed or had success in what I hope to try to do make a post

Thank you

Users / Dell GX270 as media director?
« on: May 24, 2009, 02:56:55 pm »
  It seems that this might work as a a ok media director
when a good agp nvidia card is installed.  They are slim,
gig of ram, dvd, onboard nic and dark in color
( like most a/v equipment these days )

  I was wondering if any had these running for this purpose?

  You can pick them up for around $100.00 US  and for $30.00 -
$40.00 more add in a good graphics card

  Even that they a prone to psu failure from time to time  lol

  Let me know if any had success with these..

Thank You
