I can verify this problem.  It's a real pain in the ass.


Installation issues / Re: Denon Receiver Control over Ethernet
« on: June 30, 2016, 08:09:48 pm »
The denon CI series responds to the exact same commands over ethernet as it does over serial.  A few differences, your amp has to be set to not use 'low-power mode' or it will not respond to power on from the ethernet interface.  Use the AVR/AVC (Ethernet) device to control the denon over ethernet.  Your other option is to use HDMI-CEC control, which works great for me here.

after install delet xconf and asound and it will re run avwizard

This will not cause AVWizard to run unless you are on a 1004 or non-upgraded 1204 system.  The proper way to get AVWizard is to choose 'Video Res & Audio Setup' from the orbiter or to run '/usr/pluto/bin/' from the console.

That I cannot provide as I do not have a list.  Let's see what I can find:

Apex Destiny 6000
GE Interlogix
... any other that someone creates a driver for

... any other that someone creates a driver for

... any other that someone creates a driver for

Those are just the ones *I* know of, not necessarily comprehensive list.

Mhm.  The security system would need a driver to interface with LinuxMCE, very few have that at the moment.  If you have information on the software interface then you could certainly attempt to create a device for it.  We can provide support/help to create a template for it but you'd have to do the 'heavy lifting' portions of it.

MAME is not supported in any installation at the moment.  MAME code has altered, and lmce code experimentation was happening....  so long story short: there is currently no built in MAME support on any version of LMCE.  If you'd like to pick up MAME dev we'd be happy to have contributions.  :)

You will see lots of lines like the one you describe when the databases are installed.  The sqlCVS system is transaction based and it works in chunks.  Good luck!

I cannot recreate the issue.  I installed ubuntu 14.04 i386 from here:, then ran the install script and everything installed in about an hour.  Rebooted the system and the LinuxMCE AV Wizard came up.  Completed the AV Wizard and the LinuxMCE Orbiter showed up on-screen.  Fully installed with no issues.

I will try to replicate the issue.  If I can then I'll be able to offer advice.

It really depends on what you want to do with your core.  If you're looking to only do home automation (ZWave/Insteon/Hue/etc) type control then your core does not need to be much at all.  If you check my signature link you will see everything that I'm running in my house, I use a small ARM based core.  In many ways it is comparable to my AMD Athlon X2, but not in all.

If you're going to hook anything to the system that *can* be processor or IO intensive (dvb cards, ip cameras) then you definitely want something that is AMD or Intel.  Intel processors with integrated graphics are well supported (according to user reports), there are some changes in the linux world regarding AMD graphics drivers so I wouldn't recommend that route at the moment.

In my sig link you'll see my NAS system, it used to be my core before I began experimenting with the odroid ARM device.

Almost anything that's out there in the PC world is sufficient (as long as it can run k/l/ubuntu).  Stay away from laptops and tablet type devices for a core, they work great as Orbiter controllers but not as a core.

So the horsepower really depends on what kind of ongoing processing you need.  I don't have an ip cams or video capture devices in my core, I can serve multiple HD streams to RPis and my living room MediaDirector (nvidia vdpau acceleration for video) with no issues.

I hope that helps a little.  System sizes can vary across the entire spectrum depending on your intended use.

I was allways under the impression that we had to Install Kubuntu and net install LMCE and not Ubuntu.... I know they are similar, but just to make sure we don't lead the newbie down the wrong track....

You can install ubuntu/kubuntu or lubuntu, the lmce installer will ensure all appropriate elements are installed.

  • Since Andrew (From Dianemo) left the support/feedback for Dianemo is non existent on the Forum. LMCE you get helpful responses fairly quickly and almost allways more than one person willing to help

I would like to remind you that Andrew was stealing from CHT and fraudulently representing himself and the company on the forum here for nearly a year before he 'dissappeared' with a bunch of pre-order monies that had been intended to order what he called their new Open Source RPI system, which appears to have been a complete sham.

How is the wiki insecure?

If you choose the insecure version it would very well be insecure.  ;)

If, after following posde's instructions, you still have issues post here or jump into irc and we'll see what we can do to help.

Im trying to use more often the qorbiter.  On a Samsung S6 the app is still working ok, there are some options that are not working. 
1.  Volume: On the media director that is connected to a DENON, it does not change the volume

I have a Denon amp in my living room and there are no issues.  A volume change command does not typically rely on a specific origin or destination it is simply a command.  If you can provide logs from another orbiter working and the qorbiter not working then we may be able to begin looking at why....   but again, it works here.

2.  Queue instead of instant play does not work.

mhm, that is an 'Orbiter' setting that is not likely yet included in qOrbiters logic.

Although I have seen 'add-on' units before I do not believe that pass insurance tests in the US nor in Canada.  They are considered extremely dangerous and death hazards for small children.  An integrated unit is the best option.  As posde says $150 is a bargain!

Modern intel integrated graphics in i3/i5/i7 are reported to work *very* well for hdmi video and audio.
