Users / Re: Pulse Eight HDMI CEC - Port?
« on: January 22, 2015, 02:03:27 pm »
I bought the adaptor mentioned above.
I need help understanding ports and pipes in LMCE.

The pipes in lmce and ports/channel values in CEC are mutually exclusive and not specifically related, but all are required for proper operation.

My MD ist connected to an AVR input, as well as my PS3.
The output of the AVR is connected to the TV (all via HDMI).

My actual channel setup in webadmin is as follows:

0000 TV
2000 AVR
2100 HDMI adaptor
2200 PS3

- Does the HDMI adaptor need an address setting?
- what about address setting Nr. 5 (instead 0) as mentioned in the the libcec documentation, when HTPC is connected to an Avr.

Good question.  The values you are entering into webadmin are 'Physical Addresses' on the CEC bus.  The number '5' you are referring to is a 'Logical Address' within the CEC bus and is automatically assigned by the television to the AVR on the CEC bus.

If you have the above values in your webadmin settings for the CEC devices then you now need to connect the AV pipes for the devices in the Connections screen of the AV Devices setup.  I'd be more specific but I'm not at a system atm.

I'm assuming your MD is connected to the HDMI Adaptor (pulse eight).  The adaptor can be given the address of your MD/Adaptor.  I don't recall if this is required off the top of my head, I'll double check when I'm at my systems later on.

1204 is actually very stable at the moment, but it may or may not be compatible with your specific hardware.  We need tickets detailing installation problems or they will likely never be looked at/known about.  ;)

Brononius, what version of LinuxMCE are you running? qOrbiter is only available on 1204 and up.

mhm.  That looks like the touch orbiter.  I've requested a new webadmin package which should have the links.  Until then you can find the file on your core, I'm not at my system atm and cannot remember the exact location off the top of my head.

You can use the console 'find' command to locate all files with an .apk extension to find the file, otherwise I can check when I get home much later today.

hmm.  I probably changed its' name after removing the qt4 variant.  It should be the correct one.

Sounds like a bug to me as well.  Talk to posde on irc to get an svn account (if you don`t already have one) and put a ticket in if you can.

Feature requests & roadmap / Re: control video source switchers??
« on: January 20, 2015, 06:46:18 pm »
Input switching is easily accomplished and controllable through IR/serial/ethernet/CEC communications. 

Output switching is on the map but I don't think we have full ability to control matrix switches at the moment, there has been some experimentation and we have some ideas on where to go to make it work.  None of the devs have any of this hardware to test with though so it is not something we are working on at the moment.

*Most* devices are not difficult to interface with if there is a communications spec available.  Simple relay based control is fairly easily acheived through various interface boards.  The complexity and difficulty really depend on the type of interface your device has.

Users / Re: best options for networked thermostat?
« on: January 20, 2015, 06:40:22 pm »
I do not know of any wired ethernet thermostats.  I use a Current Innovations CT-80 (a rebranded Radio Thermostat CT-80) and I am *very* happy with it.  It is 7 day programmable and I can monitor and control it from LinuxMCE.  Once you have completed the initial setup on the thermostat it is very secure connecting to a secured wpa2 wifi.

Users / Re: Screen on/off on the Joggler
« on: January 20, 2015, 06:37:11 pm »
I'm not sure if there is an easy way to do this.  LMCE normally expects a connected display to get an 'off' command, we don't have the joggler setup as a full device, but the DPMS monitor would likely be the device to use.  I'm sure it will be more complex than that.  A full joggler DT with child orbiter, etc, could be created.  Something to consider and play with.  There may be another way as well.  My jogglers do not turn off on a router reload.  I believe that is because I changed the dpms settings in the launch script (iirc).

« on: January 20, 2015, 06:33:25 pm »
I'm glad I could help initially, unfortunately I am not a zwave guru.  First thing would be to bring up the pop-up on the red devices and choose 'Test'.  That usually restores a dead node, although I think that may be done automatically at certain intervals now, I don't recall for sure.  Sambuca may be able to offer better insights into that.

Any idea when we could test this?

Sorry about that, it's been up and live since last Tuesday.  I completely forgot to mention it.  In case I forget in the future you can watch http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/LinuxMCE-1204_pre-alpha for updates to 1204 packages.

On your core:
Code: [Select]
apt-get update
apt-get dist-upgrade

If you have not already, ensure that you have the android skins package installed on your core:
Code: [Select]
apt-get install lmce-qorbiter-skins-android

Then, from you android device, you can navigate to the webadmin page on the core.  At the webadmin login page there is a link to "Download Orbiter, Utilities and other software", click that and then you can download "Orbiter For Android Qt5". 

Make sure you remove the old qorbiters from you devices, then you can install the new .apk you downloaded from the core.

When updates happen the procedure is the same to upgrade.

Different sensor, sorry.  Sambuca is the guy you'll need to talk to about getting those state values.

As posde said, I'd look to a kernel module.  We don't do anything differently from 1004/1204/1404 with disk detection.  And check /dev/disk/by-id/... to see if it shows there at all.
