Users / Re: HDMI-CEC control (RaspberryPi and PulseEight)

Neat!  I have one tv that passes d-pad (but not ok or back) and passes play/ff/rew but also does other things with those buttons at the same time.  Weird.  My other cec tv is a panny and has the same results you describe.  Thanks for testing!  I hope to continue to extend the cec adaptor to add external device control.

Marketplace / Re: Announcing Dianemo RaspSqueeze-CEC for RaspberryPi
« on: October 26, 2014, 12:12:40 am »
I would point out that LinuxMCE has Squeezelite functionality already as a netboot device with the Raspberry Pi.  All the same sound output devices are supported.  The only advantage running from the SD card would have is the ability to support wifi, which we do not support at this time.

BTW, as you are selling a product, one that is not even compatible with LinuxMCE (the Dianemo CEC stuff is really all you're selling here as even you have stated how easy it is to install raspbian and squeezeslave/squeezelite) it is my opinion that the Marketplace is a more appropriate location for this post than the Users section.  You are selling a product and/or service afterall.

Users / HDMI-CEC control (RaspberryPi and PulseEight)
« on: October 23, 2014, 06:13:48 pm »
I am happy to announce that initial HDMI-CEC control has been added to the Raspberry Pi.  It is now possible to control your rpi MD with your television's remote control.  A compatible television is required.  Control should also be possible from your TV remote if you have a PulseEight HDMI CEC adaptor connected to your non-rpi MD.

Current control is one way, work will continue to add external device control in the future.

Enjoy!

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.

Users / Re: NEW Remote Screens for UI1
« on: October 21, 2014, 03:13:22 am »
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.

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.

Developers / Re: squeezelite as an alternative to squeezeslave
« on: October 16, 2014, 06:34:17 pm »
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?
