Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Virtual 3D AI
« on: January 17, 2013, 05:47:18 pm »
@Sigg3: I had plans for that before, but it turned out to be much much more complex, and if you look at the lipsync in the videos the original poster posted - that is not even close to any real speaking even if it's done by a professional company.
Once the model is done it's not that much of effort to add new animations because all you need is new spoken text from the TTS and a camshot from my lips moving for tracking. Also, we don't have that much cases which need that much of flexibility I think. For example the Install Wizard, that is not a thing which will change every day...

@thom: I DO work on it and still I'm interested in ideas, so it's alright if you don't care but why don't you just ignore this threat instead of spaming it all the time?

@ardirtbiker: don't worry, it just takes time to find out how to make it more human and less zombie ;-)

just wanted to give a little update how far I came until today.

the whole model may totally change and the lipsync will be improved, as well as the hair (I know you can still see the short hair).
I'm learing blender more and more and will keep improving the whole model when I find time.

Use your imagination and let me know what you guys think.

Same here - I had qorbiter running at my galaxy tab and then got a popup that an update was available. after that update it wouldn't start anymore.

they look like one of those chinamade IP cameras. they are around from a lot of different brands but they are all the same. I have one of those "outdoor cameras" and I had big problems running it at the internal network because after some time the cam locked up and it wasn't even possible to access it's built in webserver or ping it anymore.
the only solution for me turned out to use it at the external network, for some reason it runs stable there.

The setup itself was easy, just follow the wiki for ip cameras and enter the right url to the .cgi file. Then follow the wiki for set ip cameras up for external access.

why are you trying to do that? you can boot into the kde desktop by clicking the button at the onscreen orbiter, if that is what you want to do...?

I now wonder if that has something to do with the Zwave dongle which I added a few weeks ago...

Btw. I'm in austria, have had the same X10 setup running correctly and did not change anything to it.

I had it running in 10.04 successfully for months. I can't say exactly but would guess it was working 1-2months before...

@deepB: also keep in mind that LinuxMCE beeing the gateway for the LinuxMCE-network, does not mean you can not place your PCs or laptops outside of the LinuxMCE network. Usually there is a router before the core anyways, so just connect the PCs to the router (if this is your problem with the architecture...).
And if the core acts as a gateway or not, does not really make any difference to the security problem...

usually people put TV cards into their core (if that is possible) and the core will record or stream liveTV to the MDs.
You can use satellite boxes if you want to and use LinuxMCE to control them tough...

you need to know: this is the LinuxMCE forum...

I guess you have a normal ubuntu server installed, right?

OK what do I use LMCE for:
I'm right now building my house and therefor I will use the lmce system I'm building up now. Also I'm using one MD right now in my flat for live tv and movies kind of productively.
I'll use Live TV, audio, video, internetradio, X10 for lights,blinds and IR sensors for security triggering, IP cameras at door and garden, 1wire for temperature sensors (does not work anymore for me right now...), 2-3 audio zones using squeezeslaves(having trouble with my usb soundcards), tablets for orbiter and some other homeautomation things. Also I'm serving internet and telecom to my parents, sisters and brothers houses (may be extended to more lmce functionalizies later).
All that packed into a 19" Intel server with TBS quad TV cards, loads of RAID diskspace,  interfaces and a touchscreen which is wired down to the core - so all kind of a bigger installation.

Now, what can be made more userfriendly:
like posde said, it would be a big benefit if we could make the Installer wizard more useful.
Right now, I personally use it for adding users and rooms, and for selecting VDR or mythtv - nearly all other steps are useless atm (to me).
So, if you add hardware and the installer wizard would guide you through the installation -> this would be userfriendly.

Also the design of that wizard is kind of outdated, a more modern design would be cool (i hate the blue background).
Some months ago I started building up a 3D model of a humans head being animated which could some day MAYBE replace Sarah in a more modern way. But right now I'm missing the time to work on that but I will keep on...

Other than that, wouldn't it be helpful if a wiki (or whatever) can be put together containing hardware which is really (I mean REALLY) plug and play?

ok, this was my point of view. I just love the flexibility and the whole concept of lmce and want to thank all devs for their great work and am looking forward to lmce's future!
