I hope to have something for you within the week (hopefully sooner).  This issue also seems to be affecting usb game pads.

Hi Armorgnome,

The game pad should not be taking you back to the menus,etc. while you are playing a game.  This issue is, I believe, related to an issue I'm tracing with CMD_Set_Screen_Type not being fired to remote devices properly.  This command re-maps all the buttons when you change menus/enter game_player.  But is not doing that properly right now.  I hope to have a solution to this within the week.

Found the source of the problem with lost pgup/pgdn functionality, I have it working again.  Need to chase the functions and figure out why it doesn't work properly the way it is expected to.

We can specifify card orders for detection using modprobe.  This will take some playing and testing.  Will be a 1204 addition.  We can control card detection order and 'reserve' card IDs for specific devices.  That way when USB devices plug in/out they will always receive the same card id.

It really can't be that difficult to sort out this page-down issue, though.... and, hopefully, the jump to letter in the playlist. Otherwise, the IR remote is actually controlling it (UI2) very well for me and it's MUCH easier for my wife and children to work with. Also great having a "button" for pause, stop, mute, etc. Those are things you typically want to do in a hurry so to just pick up the remote and press the button works really well.

The pgup/pgdn issues may be solved fairly easily.  If we can determine the exact cause...  Are you using a Windows MCE remote? 

I'm finding I have to use the "search" facility to get to the performer/title I want but it would be nice to browse. Would also be nice to be able to use the "first letter" jump-to list which also doesn't seem possible with a basic IR remote.

Making the letters accessible to an IR remote will take a bunch of grunt work with HADesigner.  Not an easy task but, as far as I know, it could be done.  HADesigner is a real beast and very un-friendly to use.  tschak may be able to provide a little more insight into what would be required to activate these buttons for non-mouse selection.

UI2 is intended to be controlled with a gyration remote.  That was its intent.  Controlling it with IR is possible, but as you are finding limited at times.
UI1 was intended for IR remote control.

You could also grab one of the multitude of inexpensive gyro mouse/keyboard/ir remote combos that are popping up.  Have the best of all worlds.  :)

Installation issues / Re: USBUIRT not transmitting in 10.04 [solved]
« on: February 19, 2013, 09:16:43 pm »
Nevertheless, all appears well in the land of USBUIRT - it is receiving 100% and transmitting as, I believe, it should although I'm still having lots of fun getting the codes right and ensuring the IR is delivered etc etc. As suggested by Thom, I'll probably invest in a dual-head emitter to target my devices more accurately for a start and, do my level best to get discrete codes. Toggle is a nightmare!! My TV goes on and off all the time to the degree that I've taken the power code out of the template and I'm controlling it manually at this stage!

Great to hear that its working!

For the time being multichannel sound cards could be any sound card that is not your MDs primary sound device.  So, your onboard sound card connected to your TV is not currently considered a multichannel sound card (as far as our DeviceTemplates are concerned).

The 3 SoundBlasters could each be a created as multichannel sound cards.  Depending on the number of actual outputs on the cards they could provide from 1 to 4 stereo outputs each.  So you would then create stereo virtual cards as children of the multichannel card.  Then you could create squeezeslave devices in your device tree that point to these virtual sound cards.  So, you could run anywhere from 4 to 12 different squeezeslaves with your 3 SoundBlaster cards.  With very little configuration required.

I hope that helps to explain things.  Let me know if you need any assistance.

Excellent!  I don't suppose you have an example of the IR code that was causing your uirt to fail and the new one that is not?  (To try and trace this back further).

You may wish to get an emmiter for the uirt that will sit immediately in front of your televisions ir receiver window.  Improves reliability.

No need to copy the media.  Mediatomb should be accessible as a upnp device just as mythtv.  However, I don't recall if Mediatomb is DLNA compatible.

posde, I like the idea.  I wouldn't want to take away the current capabililties.  I like the way I have the ability to turn on/off generation/display of scenarios for each room.  It would be handy to be able to de-select each of the elements that forms the orbiter rows similar to the scenario selection, for each room and/or user.  My 5cents (Canada just eliminated the penny).  :)

Armorgnome,

No need to create any virtual sound card devices for Media Director audio/video, only if you want to use a multichannel analog sound card for multiple squeezeslaves.

But why, following this sequence, should the UIRT stop transmitting?

This all looks normal to me.  I see nothing that points to the problem here.  I'm not sure where to go from here.

Does the UIRT continue to receive from the remote when it stops transmitting?  Ie. does dcerouter get commands from the uirt/mce remote still?

I am very happy to hear that it is working for you!  Thanks for testing!
