Installation issues / Re: Multiple USBUIRT's
« on: July 22, 2009, 11:05:13 am »
There are a number of factors involved. A wiring diagram of your house would be a huge help - # of component, hdmi, coax, and cat5 going to each room, types/resolution of TV's etc. If you have 8 tv's, you might want to consider a few distribution amps. They're normally $150+ but you can find some good deals ($20-60) right now on ebay for Calrad 40-934M units pulled from all the Circuit City stores that closed not too long ago. If you have some tv's that don't have component inputs or don't have wiring run to those rooms, you can always use modulators over coax. If you want to centralize the MD's, you will need to have either hdmi run, use hdmi over cat5 baluns, or use HDFury2 HDMI->Component converters. If you want to use 4 MD's for 8 tv's you will definitely need the distribution amps and the HDFury2's (best price at



Did you upgrade to Alsa 1.0.20?

If not, use the Alsa upgrade script:

Start it with ./ -di

If you already have it, make sure to re-run the AVWizard and select the appropriate output and to enable DD and DTS. I tried changing the settings at first throught the web admin and for some reason it didn't take. When I ran the wizard, though, it worked right away.

Hope that helps!

I know how to change the color of a datagrid cell, I see that there is an opacity option, and I know how to change the general background of a dg designobj. My question is... is it possible to have the area of a dg cell that isn't occupied by text or coverart to be transparent?

Are there receivers for each room in the media closet? How many coax/component/cat5 cables do you have run to each room? Was the goal of your original setup to have no visible external hardware?

I'm having the same problem with sporadically choppy video. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to when it starts and I don't see anything strange in either the DCERouter or Xine logs. Has anyone else experienced this/found a solution?

For the people that would like to contract your work, what is your hourly dev rate?

What might even be better is if you made a list of what it would cost the community to contract you for a different features/projects that people have expressed interest in. We could then figure out the per-person cost based on how many people end up wanting to contribute towards each feature, a la the gyration remote. In the case of orbiter ports, perhaps a licensing scheme could even be established so you had residual income.

It WILL work. Add the routing commands to the IR database and adjust the scenario's commands in the webadmin. The other method is too ugly to offer here.

I have an RT8 and it works great, but since you need to feed it the correct code to select the output first, it wouldn't really work in this situation. This is especially important when more than one device is being controlled at the same time. Since I don't think rndinokc is already using a zoned ir system, control is probably being done either on-screen or on a mobile/web orbiter. Either way, the hybrid has no way of knowing what routing code to send to the RT8 to begin with since it can only be assigned to a single room. Plus, an RT8 runs $150, the RC68+ programmer is another $100, so it's a $250 investment for a workaround that is kind of a pain.

Get the other MD's. It's cleaner and will give you so much more functionality than an independent hybrid.


200GBP = US$325

Love the concept, but in order to make the purchase worthwhile you really need to use ALL of the T1's features. At $100ish I'd pick one up in a heartbeat, though.



I chuckle every time I read that nick :) Yes, if you use the bracket you will get DD.


I haven't tried HDMI on its own so I don't know if you will get more than just the stereo sound you had under mythbuntu.


HDMI does work with the 1.0.20 ALSA release.

The only way I've been able to get S/PDIF to work is with the breakout board (search ebay for ASUS SPDIF). For $20, it's worth the easy installation. There is a way to get both S/PDIF and HDMI working at the same time with some alsa.conf adjustments, but you lose 5.1DD.

Well... I found the header files elsewhere online, but now I'm coming up with a bunch of int8_t redefinition errors. Hmm.

Developers / 0810 Win32 Orbiter build issues
« on: July 04, 2009, 04:36:07 am »
I'm having some trouble getting the 0810 Win32 Orbiter to build. I'm getting a slew of errors about missing include files.

SDL.h appears 5 times
pthread.h appears 42 times

I can't seem to find the files anywhere in the source tree. Any ideas?



There's a sticky FAQ post that would be a good place for you to start with a new-user wiki page.

To anyone that has shown interest in a particular area: I think we've gotten past the point of discussion and are on the task of getting some work done! For example, I'm already working on new orbiter graphics and putting together a LMCE icon repository. If you want to help document, start making an outline and post it. As more people join in, everyone can flesh it out.

The only thing that is going to impress anyone now that all has been said is action.



Just in case the core devs do not stop in...

There aren't as many details, but it gives you an idea:

I had to change the scripts to reflect the addition of easy-rsa 2.0, but it was just adding the /2.0 on the end of /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa in a few places. Other than that, they work great.  That being said, they default to tun interface on port 1194, so if you want anything different, the generated lmce-server.conf, conf/ovpn files in the user tarballs, and script still need to be edited by hand.
