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.

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

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.  :)

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.

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

Thanks Andrew!

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.

Andrew the link you posted is returning a 404 error.

In fact a diskless rpi squeezelite device can be *mostly* automatically created following the Raspberry Pi information on the wiki:  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!
