Users / Re: Bye Bye Standby OC / Home Easy
« on: September 25, 2012, 07:47:22 pm »
Hi all,

After having done a bit of searching for a solution to replace my Windows based Domia Harmony 2007 install for Bye Bye Standby - I seem to have come up with a blank for solutions on Linux (I am using Ubuntu 12.04).

LinuxMCE seems to be a good fit, but despite a quick search I dont seem to be able to find if the Bye Bye Standby Online Controller works.

The BBSB OC works via firing a UDP packet at the network device which then broadcasts that out over RF to control plug sockets. E.g. UDP Send: echo D:1A01:E | nc -u -w 1 53008  will turn my device A01 on...

I think this should be fairly easy to implement but I dont want to re-invent the wheel by writing a scheduler and working out sunrise/sunset etc.

Does anyone know if this is already implemented, or how easy it would be add as a plugin?

Thanks in advance everyone.

Blank solution for Linuxmce is not 1204, but 1104.

thanks, received!

Doorbell is funded.
BongoWongo is donating the Siren.

Thank you guys for helping adding device support to LMCE!!

btw, I bought a Fibaro Universal Binary Sensor, support will follow soon. Very recommended to hook up generic sensors or temp sensors.

Did you receive my money?
Nice to see that I ended up with the funding of the Siren.
I would hope the siren only produces loops of bongo jokes.

Just ordered, 264,38 EUR

If you guys don't stop funding now I'll buy further z-wave toys like the doorbell and the alarm siren :-)

Wtf, so I am not even needed. Nice... :(

So how much is left? 25 euro's? I will pledge 25 euro's, or a 1000 Bongolians, whichever you fancy.

I have a few LinuxMCE for dummies for sale, they come with current supported hardware list. But you need to pay via western union.

We all know you are a nigerian prince.

I guess that is easier than being honest.

Lol at creating a home automation "program" not being "that hard". See Google's android@home... or Microsoft HomeOS. I expect your resources are probably greater. Again... thirst does not go unquenched with liquid in front of you. You do not have a thirst for knowledge... you have dollar signs in your eyes. You are now having a fight or flight reflex being exposed.

I am sure we will see you again.

Next time, just be straightforward. I spend 100 hours per week on average helping people... for no reason other than I want this project to exist. All I ask in return is the thing you seem incapable of. I guess it is a hazard of a life in sales.

BTW I am just a user. I do not represent LinuxMCE. I am one of the more active ones, but I am not the project and have no vested interest or authority.

I have bongosigns in my eyes

To all whom read here,

I assume (we all know what that means) that for LinunMCE related products for sale and in search of this is the place to post. If I'm wrong please advise. I hate making the same mistake twice....

I am in search of the following to purchase, trade or obtain for "free":

1: A current - up-to-date - paperback, hardbook or CD on the installation, set-up and workings of a basic LinuxMCE,

2: A current - up-to-date - paperback, hardbook or CD of "advanced" workings of LinuxMCE ( like a CE based description, or, a LinuxMCE Bible),

3: Information and/or location of any LinuxMCE "CE" training or testing programs available in the U.S. (Texas) or website location for such,

4: Location of description of "Required Licenses" and how to obtain them if any are required,

5: Someone whom would be willing to provide me a detailed list (model numbers, description, etc..), or, a url,  of a complete working system they have set up. I found after reading a few forum post that some of the cards and such are either hard to find or no longer available. I am very eager to set-up a working system using current available equipment for my learning lab so I don't want to spend a lot of money on cards that I either don't need or won't work. I am willing to pay a reasonable amount for such a list.

I have a serious thirst for knowledge in projects like this. I would love to obtain any used books available as long as they are in fairly good shape and I'm not charged the original price paid (yes I'm a cheap tightwad). MUST BE IN ENGLISH, no offence to anyone, I'm too old to learn another language at this point in my life.  I will pay for shipping to the U.S. (Texas). I wish to obtain as much knowledge as possible from reading books or materials without reading the Wiki. I don't do well with wiki's.

Thanks for your time,


There are no books that I know of, but since you are a cheap tightwad why not try the wiki?

Hey ....

thanks for your response.
Except the climate icon, its one icon set!
As you may know, its really difficult to find free, good looking, reasonable sized, icon sets that cover most of the buttons needed for LinuxMCE ...

If you know a good icon set let me know :-)

@tschak909, you are right, good consistent icons are the base of a good design. Icons will be the main issue on that design.


So I guessed the wrong one.
Still I think the telephone is too much.

It's a nice design, the only thing I may suggest, is that the icons be drawn by the same artist, so as to have consistency. The icon images do not look consistent, different lighting, styling, etc. Consistency is _exceedingly_ important, and makes the difference between a good design, and an exceptional one.


Yes I agree. e.g. imho the telephony icon really jumps out.

hmmm, more under the topic 'development', no?
Check, added... ;)
Development is more coding. I cannot code.
