Users / Re: Raspberry Pi Model A+ Experiences
« on: Today at 12:22:06 am »
I haven't got a model A yet but I was tempted to get one to see if it could run as a simple orbiter combined with the small adafruit touchscreen and placed in a wall box to control lights, set alarm status etc.

Not sure if the 256mb ram would run orbiter though but a web interface may work, I know this could be done with the model b but this a+ is quite a bit smaller now and more importantly in-wall its not as tall.

Just my ideas there so cheep you can afford to experiment:)

I have run orbiter on an Adafruit touchscreen.  The screens are much too small to be usefull as a full orbiter, a minimal version *could* work but that is a lot of effort.  Running a weborbiter or something similar, as totallymaxed suggests, is likely the best option for the A+.

No one has added any DTs that would permit that currently, but it is doable.

Input switching, volume control on AVRs, Power On/Off, Play/Pause/Stop, etc. are all functional now with the appropriate device templates added to your systems.  Still having issues controlling tv volume directly.  I really like that proper off functionality is possible for devices like the PS3 & PS4 that have been difficult to properly control.


Hi Andrew,

I appreciate your ongoing support of the LinuxMCE community and the expectations of our users when a product is advertised as 'supported'.  Thanks for clarifying, again, that you will add the appropriate DeviceTemplates, to LinuxMCE, to truly make this supported from LinuxMCE!  I look forward to the additions.


Let's be clear.  I am not confused about the product you are offering or the extent (or not) of its' capabilities.  I am confused by the fact that your subject line claims there is support for it in LinuxMCE when there is not.  I would consider purchasing your product, and promote it to others for you, if it was actually supported from LinuxMCE.

Thank you for clarifying that you intend to add the needed Device Template(s) so that it can be 'supported from LinuxMCE' as you claim. 


Hi Andrew,

You seem to be taking my position as a personally attack, I can assure you that nothing is farther from the truth.  I have never once suggested that you should not be selling your hardware/software through the forums here, or in conjuction with LinuxMCE, or supported in LinuxMCE when that is the case.  And I will never suggest that you should not be.

I have not, and never will, dispute that you have contributed greatly, and continue to contribute to LinuxMCE.  I, and everyone in the community, appreciate that greatly!  Let me say that again: *I* appreciate what you do and your contributions to the community greatly!  I have a great deal of respect for you Andrew.  It is because I wish to keep that respect that I brought this issue forward.

There is no confusion on this AT ALL.

This statement is false.  *I* am confused due to the subject of this thread "Support Added for CEC control of HDMI Switches from LinuxMCE".  There is no support in LinuxMCE for your device.  That is confusing to me, and I'm not the only one.


Hi Andrew,

When you do release a Device Template it will then be LinuxMCE compatible.  I appreciate that the rest interface may be easy for *some* people to create an interface for, the fact remains the device is not compatible until the user creates their own Device Template, as they would have to do for every other incompatible device in existence.  By your logic it could be said that all devices are compatible with LinuxMCE (of course that is if the user creates their own Device Template.)

"Support Added for CEC control of HDMI Switches from LinuxMCE" <- this simply is not true at the current time.

Thank you for clarifying your intentions to eventually make the device compatible with LinuxMCE.



I would like to point out that you are not advertising truthfully about the product.  Your CEC devices do not work with LinuxMCE unless the user creates their own driver in LinuxMCE for it.  It is my opinion that it is poor form to claim compatibility when there is none.


Users / Re: Automatic adding Internet Radio streams to LinuxMCE

Hey guys, I tried the script (it thinks I'm in Missouri for some reason)  but my system won't play any of the included radio stations that it does add.  Do I need to do anything else?

Ifconfig showed for eth0 , which was not correct


Mav, could you file a trac ticket about this with some details about your nic setup?  I'm not sure what I can do with it yet, but I'd appreciate it.  Thanks!

Initially I would suggest that time is only > 23:37 for 23minutes each day.  You need an OR < 06:00 or somehting like that as well.

Don't use the NIGHT check.  At least that is how mine is configured.

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.

That is the plan.  :)

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.
