Developers / iPhone Dev
« on: October 01, 2009, 05:39:44 am »
Just curious what the status is on the iPhone as an Orbiter process?
Is anyone doing this? Or is it still just a dream?

I ask because I just began a one year program at my local college on Mobile Dev. I am learning Objective C this semester and will be learning iPhone development next. I am also planning on setting up LinuxMCE on my box at home and a dream is to link them ALL together... anyone?

Users / Price / Site Thread

I've been through the wiki entries on Media Directors. Several of the entries I clicked on aren't even being offered at newegg or wherever they were pulled from, so I wanted to throw an idea out and see if anyone bites. Do you have a good deal? Good deal site? Etc?

I've looked a for little PC's, they seen to have thin clients from the UK for around 149 pounds, but I'm not even sure what that translates to in USD? But my thoughts were, if someone knew of a good place to buy the individual components at affordable prices, I might be able to do my system ideas on a budget?

For instance:
Couple systems that look good, decent price range, sorta. Considering you have buy RAM for a couple of them (if not all?).
Do you know of a better place? Obviously I'm looking for the most affordable, but basically a thread where people share good prices / sites / stores would be excellent?!

Users / RFID and Sensor Support?

Alright, so I'm looking into various sensors and stuff, getting a shopping / price list together.
Something that dawned on me was RFID? Has ANYONE gotten RFID to do ANYTHING in a LinuxMCE environment yet?
I can't seem to find anything, anywhere on it.

Users / Intermatic HA07C Home Settings Wireless Master Remote Control

Questions from a newb.

I haven't invested a dime yet in LinuxMCE nor it's implementation. I am just trying to wrap my head around this potentially beautiful, beautiful concept.

I'm looking at ZWave Light Dimmers and Receptacles.

On the Amazon site they say that you need a Intermatic HA07C Home Settings Wireless Master Remote Control in order to operate the devices. What I am wondering is with LinuxMCE, do you STILL need these Master Remote Controls? Or does LinuxMCE control these devices somehow? And if so, HOW? Is this where the GC-100 devices come in? Or am I just confused?

Can someone help a confused N00B out?

Users / New System Recommendations

I'm getting ready to start house shopping for my first house, and I am definitely wanting to install LinuxMCE. It seems to have everything I am wanting in a home network / security system (and then some) but I am having a hard time with hardware selection?

Surely there is a list of preferred hardware for a Linux Server running LinuxMCE?
But if there is? I can't find it!!!

I do alot of computer shopping at Pricewatch and NewEgg and it would be REALLY nice if I could scroll through a list of recommended hardware and just search for it, rather than buy and hope. Anyone know of a list or something resembling a list?
