Thanks guys. I don't expect it to be immune to high network traffic, but expect it to perform well under low load which is how I've been testing it.

What about a wireless router that has QOS? I was thinking of replacing my existing access point with a Linksys wrt310n running DD-WRT.

Didn't realize VOIP was so sensitive. I read at some point that linuxmce has a QOS feature to prioritize voice data, but I just did some research on my aging wireless access point and it seems to be missing any such features. Will be interesting to see if there's any improvement using wired LAN only.

The codec my VSP suggests and the codec I'm using is u-law. I understand it's the best (provided you have the bandwidth which I certainly do...or should) and I understand the bitrate is fixed at 64kbps or thereabouts.

I have set [disallow=all] and [allow=u-law] for all extensions and protocols. Asterisk CLI verifies that u-law is being used exclusively.

I am testing as follows:

Call between two internal extensions, one is an iPhone with Siax (IAX) using internal wifi network, the other is a PC with Voiper softphone (IAX). I am listening from the PC via ipod headphones, while my girlfriend talks into the iphone. The call quality is exactly the same tinny sounding quality as I get when I make external calls through my unlimitel IAX trunk.

Does anyone else have this problem?  I understand I should be able to get landline quality or better but this is far from that.

Users / DIM level mappings
« on: September 09, 2009, 09:47:52 pm »
I have a couple ACT Homepro lamp modules and I noticed that the brightness level mappings are not ideal. For example, changing from 90% to 100% there is almost no perceptible difference. The same goes for 70% to 90%. There is a big difference in perceived levels below this however.

How can I re-map these intervals so that I have higher resolution? Is this problem likely specific to this model of controller? Can I create a mapping for each individual device or are the mappings global?

Thanks,

David

Users / Poor Call Quality
« on: September 09, 2009, 04:13:22 pm »
I'm experiencing poor (tinny-sounding) VOIP call quality. Internal calls suffer the same problem, so I've ruled out my VSP as the cause. The problem is also independent of softphone client and choice of protocol (IAX/SIP).  Any ideas what the culprit could be?

Could this be related to the fact that my home network is completely wireless after the core?

I meant 50 kByte/s. So 400kbit/s. I have cable internet.

Users / Streaming via PPTP to iphone or PC
« on: September 07, 2009, 06:56:33 pm »
Thanks to donpaul for his work in bringing VPN to linuxmce. I'm excited about streaming video from the core to an external pc or my iphone using this.

I typically get 50kb/s from my core to another consumer quality point of access over the VPN. This is not enough to stream most of video material in my library, from my initial tests. I assume there are ways to compress the video in realtime and stream it at a lower bitrate so that I don't need to create lower quality copies of all my material just for remote viewing.

Where can I learn more about implementing something like this? I read up a bit on mediatomb, and I get the impression it can do this. I'd like to know what I need in the way of a client (on a PC or iphone) and what configuration needs to happen on the two ends.

Thanks,

Dave

are you trying to argue with me over my own code?

Not at all, just posting my observations in the hopes that it may help others in the future.

this is not needed and just coincidence [...] You probably rebooted the core or something like that when replacing the binary.

Hari

Actually I didn't. Before replacing the binary I rebooted, reloaded the router, removed the usb stick, replaced the usb stick, and did a spiritual dance around my CORE about 20 times in just about every possible sequence to no avail. As soon as I replaced the binary it started working instantly.

Having a similar issue with the Aeon, but with ACT Homepro Dimmable Lamp Modules. After pairing and pluggin in the stick, it says

"Waiting for the new device to startup..... One moment, please."

Then says

"The device failed to start properly. Something is not right."

Here's the ZWave device log:

EDIT: For shits and giggles, I installed the new driver (even though I'm running 810 and read that it was already included in 810). Everything's running fine now as far as I can tell.

Users / Re: Re-initialising/clearing the media database...
« on: September 03, 2009, 10:31:47 pm »
be sure to go to launch manager, and shut down core and media station.

then from a console:

Code: [Select]

mysql -uroot

drop database pluto_media;
quit

cp /usr/pluto/database/media.sqlcvs .

/usr/pluto/bin/sqlCVS -r media import


That will re-flash your media database with a fresh copy from the release.

-Thom


Does this work in 810? How do you stop the Core and MD in 810?

I'm not sure build.sh is running from Configure_OpenVPN_Keys.sh... when I run the script manually it generates the keys directory along with all the keys, but does not do this when run from Configure_OpenVPN_Keys.sh

I don't know anything much about .sh scripts, but is the spawn syntax correct?

EDIT: the problem is that the 'expect' package is not installed by default. Add it to the list of packages installed in the script.

There's no /keys directory here either... I'm not sure why the keys aren't being generated in their proper location.

You can use a domain name with IAX, so your DNS solution should work.

I'm by no means an expert either. If it's a common networking issue, can someone explain why I can access lmce-admin (http) using the public IP of my core from within the lmce internal network, but the same is not true for this IAX service?

Did you run the script as root? I never get those errors when run as root. I will be making changes and incorporating OpenVPN into LinuxMCE web admin soon.

Yes, I ran as root.

After the script terminates the contents of /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/ are as follows:

1.0  2.0  build.sh

There is no /keys directory.
