This has been folded into 1204 now for anyone that would like to test and report back on results.  Thanks!

Keep in mind that the majority of LMCE scripts are bash based and are not compatible with dash.  You will want to ensure that bash is updated and functional.

Users / Re: Why Do Media Directors Exist?

In the future that may change. Whats missing in lmce today is all the Core side code to support upnp player devices. That's a fairly big chunk of code. Also our Raspbmc-CEC firmware image has Dianemo specific packages that implement the Dianemo CEC controller device, and those packages would need updating somewhat.

Yup, we are sorely missing the upnp capability.  I think what you've done with xbmc and an add-on cec device is a great option!  Coupled with the set-up packs it's an extremely enticing option!  :)

First I've heard of it.  Have you tried multple types of media?  What is the video output method you are using (xv, vaapi, vdpau?)

mhm.  fyi, golgo I don't think I'm seeing this on the rpi qmd because the 'OnScreen qOrbiter' does not install the qMediaPlayer.  But I would have to check/test to be sure that is the case.

Users / Re: New Build Graphics Card Recommendation
« on: September 30, 2014, 12:28:05 am »
I'm really going out on a limb here as most of us would be recommending anything specific...  Most of us have one or two cards and recommending specifics can be... problematic if they are no longer available, as none of my cards are.  But, this hardware has run since 0810 mostly.

However, that being said I would recommend something low to middle range from nVidia.  My best video playback card is the least expensive, fanless nvidia, paid $40 for it.  My $600 (when I purchased it) GTi-560 may be more problematic, I've never tried it... it's for gaming ;)

So I recommend an inexpensive nvidia card, that supports vdpau (I think all modern ones do) with HDMI output connectors on it.  Avoid anything that has purely DVI output as the adaptors don't always pass audio.

My card is a GT-220 (iirc, it's in a case in the basement running).  Please feel free to check my wiki page for more specifics (in the signature line below).

You may have to turn off the integrated graphics in the i7, or you could try to use them if you have an hdmi output on the board.  iirc the i7 integrated video was capable of vaapi acceleration.  Don't recall for sure though.

So, I know it's not a specific recommendation, but that's my knowledge on what you have and what I would look at.

I agree that the rpi is perfect for things like this!  Don't forget to disable media (orbiter) startup by setting the AutostartMedia=0 option in /etc/pluto.conf, assuming you aren't using media on them.  The GSD devices should still be started by Launch_Manager, and if you notice they don't please let me know and I'll make that work (but I think I tested that).

BTW, I'm interested in what sort of devices you are interfacing with!   :)

Users / Re: Raspberry Pi as a MediaDirector
« on: September 30, 2014, 12:14:36 am »
I would love to support the bpi as an MD, however the sheer amount of effort required to support new media players can be overwhelming.  The LMCE MPlayer_Player device is not written as a full player, it is only supported as a fallback for certain media types from the Xine_Player.

Currently the only playback in HD I can get is with mplayer2.  If the vdpau implementation works with libxine2 then we're laughing.  Until then the amount of work to support media playback is large.

That being said.  I am not abandoning the possibility.  But I also don't have time to test every permutation of options for playback out there.  So, here's what you guys need to do: Find a way to playback accelerated hd with any xine frontend (console player may be the best option), and document what you did.  This can be done from either the raspbian image or the lubuntu image.  It's an armv7 device so in the long run we're looking at ubuntu as all the raspbian packages are built for armv6 and run slower than equivalent armv7 packages.

CEC control is not yet possible on the bpi, it *is* possible but no one has done the firmware end to have it supported, nothing we can really do there.

With working A/V this little guy is a contender and I would support it.  Until then I have other bugs and development that is more pressing.  Wandboard and Cu-Box are both contenders, but both have A/V issues with the quad core models, that's a show stopper again.

Users / NEW Remote Screens for UI1
« on: September 27, 2014, 02:22:05 am »
Hey all!

I wanted to let everyone know that I created two new MediaTypes (np_PVR & np_Playstation) and my wife built new UI1 remote screens for them.  We have also updated the UI1 np_BluRay remote to include more of the standard buttons you would expect of a blu-ray remote.  And we have a WD HT TV Live that we built a remote screen for as well.  There may be updates/fixes and I'll keep this thread updated.

http://imgur.com/bFoYrD5,wBmBzld#0 <- Blu-Ray

http://imgur.com/Toz0bjG,eICxAKZ#0 <- Playstation (2/3/4)

http://imgur.com/5nkV0yy,gLkjHxr#0 <- PVR

http://imgur.com/97kDTSS#0 <- HDTV

http://imgur.com/3gvwD9W#0 <- XBox (thanks go to tschak909 for creating this screen)

If you have an existing device template that you would like to have utilize the new PVR screens, or you have a blu-ray player and want the new remote screens in 1204:

Code: [Select]
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
then do a 'Full Regen' of all your orbiters.

If you are on 1004 you should be able to access the new screens by:
Code: [Select]
apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
then do an sqlCVS Update of the 'dce' and 'designer' repo.  (WARNING: this may break other things, I have not tested this on 1004.  You've been warned.)  Then do a 'Full Regen' of all your orbiters.

I'll try to help any way I can.

Installation issues / Re: HDMI Audio AC3 Problem
« on: September 27, 2014, 02:00:11 am »
Hey, I think we were talking in irc.  If you move to 1204 hdmi is much more supported.  1004 has all sorts of exceptions and issues.

Users / Re: Audio track and Subtitle support
« on: September 26, 2014, 03:47:26 pm »
:)  Keep in mind that there is no feedback at the moment.  I am learning about orbiter to figure out how to get text displaying.  It is going to require some additional glue to send subtitle/audio track changed events and then to listen for them and match them to appropriate orbiters to display.  It won't be quick but it'll come.
