Users / Re: Media list (grid) scroll/page down button on IR remote
« on: January 27, 2013, 10:34:41 pm »
Set up the remote that comes with the Zotac AD04 box in LinuxMCE and it works really nicely - the receiver being my new USBUIRT. But my only gripe is that in media lists I have to scroll right to the bottom before I can get the list to scroll. How do I set up a button to page down on the media list?

Any ideas? I've tried the chanup, chandown buttons and, in fact, just about every other button but none seems to do that.

On standard MCE remotes these buttons used to scroll the mediagrids for me, that stopped working with my standard MCE remote some time ago.  Don't remember when.  Haven't worked for quite some time in 1004 imho.  Forgot all about it till now and just tested it.  No scroll with my standard MCE remote.

Who watches stuff at 720p these days?! ;)

;D 1080P works very well on the pi in my experience!  There used to be some choppiness with DTS audio, not sure the status of that right now, but AAC and AC3 audio both work wonderfully!

Hey Dennis,

I did a lot of playing with that script a couple years ago.  It was converted to create a serialized output rather than a .php script sometime before I started playing with it.  In it's last posted form I believe it was working well.  I have used it to move my device templates from system to system during re-installs many times with great success.  It is not a supported method of submitting/moving devices around right now.

It would be great to have the templates submitted to sqlCVS so they would be available for others to use.  Have a look at: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/How_to_use_sqlCVS_from_web_admin

Clarifying my omxplayer babbling.

When I speak of creating an omx player device for lmce many people seem to think I am talking about a dce wrapper for the console based omxplayer.  This is not what my intentions are. 

omxplayer is essentially a console interface to a statically compiled omx library.  My intention is to port the player portion to dce so that it is a native device like xine, not a console wrapper like mplayer.

:)  Just wanted to clear that up in case there were any misconceptions about my intentions for the device.

It'd be nice if the last 4-5 remaining bugs would be squashed before SCALE, so we could have a release by then.

Yes!  Yes!  :-D  I'll check and see if there's anything there that's within my reach to tackle.

yeah, let's just get it working, first. :)

:)  Yes, lets! (waiting for freeze lift...)

I / we could more than likely implement this method pretty fast if we are willing to give up some features.

Mainly it appears
-seeking
-timecode

Other than that, this would be pretty brain dead simple to implement. Maybe I should be less of a snob about this and accept that we cant have everything we want for v1 of a video player on the pi.

I don't think we need to sacrifice anything really.  The omxplayer source is available and it implements seeking entirely via timecodes.  If we base from the existing omxplayer then interface is through a static lib (similar to xine), interfacing would be more like xine using function calls rather than parsing text output like mplayer in slave mode.  lmce's omxplayer source could then be easily updated as additional functionality is added to omxplayer to leverage new features from upstream.  https://github.com/huceke/omxplayer <- omxplayer source.  To my untrained eye this looks *easy* to port.

I am completely willing to put the work into this as I have really enjoyed bringing this as far as I have.  My hands are tied until freeze is lifted and new devices can be created and sql2cpp run, etc.  It would also be handy for me to have svn access.  Again, until freeze is lifted there is not much I don't see much I can do on the player.

For reference: http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Porting_Raspbian read along and let me know if there are any questions, that way I can clarify things. 

There are currently 3 aspects that need further investigation:
  • avwizard mods for rpi - haven't looked extensively at this but it is very doable
  • omxplayer - player/plugin creation - waiting for freeze lift before I can continue on this
  • uboot - kernel parameter passing issue, see wiki

Is there anything outstanding we need to get it integrated so thats pnp?

Yes.  pnp booting also needs tackling, I have been testing two approaches, in the long run uboot is the preferred method. 

There are two options:
1. uboot network boot (preferred)
  - provides complete pnp
  - no user interaction with sdcard contents
  - dd card image once
  - sdcard contents unchanged
  - move the card to a new PI and a new MD will be created.
  - initial boot kernels and MD kernels fully managed by core
2. standard pi boot (not preferred)
  - mostly pnp
  - dd card image
  - sdcard contents change after initial MD creation
  - move the card to a new PI, user must alter sdcard or re-dd image
  - kernels managed entirely on the sd card
  - initial dd images must be updated as kernels change

I was working towards the uboot functionality but uboot has still not matured entirely on the pi.  I need to take another stab at it but much of the functionality for the rpi is still awaiting merge in uboot.  I have been applying patches to the source for testing.  Kernel parameters do not pass consistently with uboot on the pi.  I believe I know the issue but haven't had a chance to implement/test anything.  Essentially there is missing piece of code that copies the aggregated kernel parameters to memory location where the kernel is expecting them to be.

Trying to resurrect this - phenigma how far has your builder progressed - or is it like me - been on hiatus?

-Coley.

Not sure specifically what you mean by how far my builder has progressed?  I had previously built all the packages for raspbian/armhf and they are up at dropbox for use in sources.list.  It has been a few months since I've done a rebuild of those packages but they work just fine with a 1004 core.  I have been puttering away the whole time.

I have a full MD running on 512MB RPi, photo-screensaver and UI1 with USB-UIRT.  Full MD with screensaver crashes on 256mb rpi.  The only piece of the puzzle that is missing is an omxplayer (a la mplayer_player) to handle media playback on the pi.

MD creation is essentially worked out, I have copious notes and have been working on updating scripts for proper MD functionality with as little alterations to current scripts as possible.  I have been waiting for 1004 release and lifting of feature freeze so I can request svn access and update everything I have here into svn.

Talking with golgo we decided that a UI1 based MD on rpi is the way to go until qorbiter matures more.

So... if there is anything that people could/should try to work on it is an omxplayer for pi mds.  With that we would have essentially complete MD functionality on the rpi.

Now to actually put them to some use...  need to use the knowlege a little.  :)

I'm missing: 1,5,6,10,11 From group #1 and I did not even know of the existence of anything in group #2.

Any you could provide would be great!

Are these available anywhere?  The links below aren't working and only half of the screencasts are available at localeconcept...  Thanks.
