Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Android audio media director

And this is still possible in LinuxMCE, the auto-creation method is only one option. :)

heh.  You are correct Andrew, the rpi will always have an SD card.  But we only use it to bootstrap u-boot.  The rest of the system starts by tftp'ing the kernel and nfs root mounting the FS the same way diskless MDs PXE boot within LinuxMCE, so this is very different than 'Installing your favourite OS and manually installing and configuring squeezelite'.  Simple, no hassle, minimal config in webadmin (I'm working on eliminating this too), and no on-rpi configuration required.  It is of course very fresh and minimally tested so far but the idea is to remove the manual manipulation and make things *much* easier for users.

In fact a diskless rpi squeezelite device can be *mostly* automatically created following the Raspberry Pi information on the wiki: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/RaspberryPi  This is still in its infancy but the basics are there.

I'll have some new screenshots soon as we continue to tweak screens and unify button locations as much as posible.

The original lmce remote screens were designed before a time when stored media could contain multiple angles/audio/subtitles.  We are trying to bring these remotes up to par for capabilities of modern stored media, and disc based media while maintaining a common look/feel and location for commands across the system.

The current changes are a culmination of research and design that has occurred over the past year and a half as various users have been exposed to the system, and UI, and compared to other modern media systems capabilities.  Every device presents unique charachteristics and propietary capabilties.  We are always looking for feedback leading to improvments on how we might be able to best represent the majority of devices out there.

If you have an existing device that you would like to have utilize one of the newer mediatype remotes let me know and I'll see what we can do to convert the DT over.

Thanks everyone!

Does this effect the other architectures as well? i.e. do we need some new packages from fluffy?

I'm still trying to determine that, but no I don't think so.  I believe I have a disconnect between the logic in MakeRelease and ConfirmDeps, and I do not believe this shows in the package depends.  I will verify this evening and report on irc.

I'll get a list together tonight and meet you on irc.

Bad package data caused ConfirmDependencies to pull in a package that removed pluto-orbiter.  If you sqlcvs update the dce table you should not have this problem again.

Please feel free to add to the existing launch script and submit svn diff patches to trac.  I don't plan on doing any pulse support directly until the backend of the system supports it.  That being said, if you want it for this device provide patches to trac to add that functionality without breaking anything existing.

Is everything else working as expected with the squeezelite players?

Thanks for the testing!  I am running some experiments to figure out where the problem is, I'll update you when I have had a chance to do so.

No idea what is up.  No issues here.  apt-cache policy pluto-orbiter just to be sure.

Let me know if you have any issues with the screens, everything is mostly good here but I have yet to add the Bind to Remote commands which may cause some undesired input switching until I can get those added.

I still think it be nice if you add a proper description to the devices (maybe even the room).

Um?  No.  You can edit the device and describe it any way you would like, just like every other device in the system.

And an optional pulsesink selection. I did both in the code I posted previously (not the room though)

Heh.  Ok.  I don't see any code or feature patches to support pulseaudio anywhere in the system in trac anywhere.  And since we don't support pulseaudio I will not add specific pulseaudio code until the system supports it.  That being said: Have you even tried it?  Have you put your pulse:sink name in as the output device?  I don't think you've even tried it and from the squeezelite documentation it appears that it should work as is.

Look, I'm getting really frustrated that you that certain people continually complain about things without actually trying to do much of anything about it.  I work *really* hard here *for free* to try and support all kinds of things for people, including things that I don't use like the damn squeezeslave/squeezelite players.   So thanks for testing, I'm glad you're complaining that it doesn't slice and dice and make damn Julien fries at the same freakin' time.  I'm really happy that it's 'working' but not 'properly' becuase it doesn't describe the device to your satisfaction and that it doesn't support an audio subsystem that we don't support at all.

Despite my rant: Please let me know if the existing functionality, as intended, is working or if there are any issues with it because I want it to work properly within the existing system.  If you want it to do something it doesn't do then *please* open a feature request in trac.  Then feel free to provide proper svn patches to provide those features.  If you are unsure how to do that then *please* ask in #linuxmce-devel on freenode irc for specific assistance.
