Users / In-wall touch screen
« on: November 26, 2012, 11:30:26 pm »
Can anyone recommend a cost effective nice touch screen for in wall mounting? similiar to this?

android based

Also the ipad has some really nice in wall mounting devices that would look really nice and mount flush and the linuxmce orbiter im sure would work great with it but i just cant dish out $1000 for the ipad and a nice ipad mount. Seems like an overkill.


Users / Updating IR codes
« on: November 05, 2012, 02:27:16 am »
When I go to update IR codes in linuxmce 8.10 how come there are slashes inserted in every single line similar to what is show below upon hitting the update button? Every time you hit update another slash gets inserted.

SendCommand(\\\"ka 01 00\\\",1000,2)


Installation issues / Easy question
« on: November 02, 2012, 01:11:43 am »
OK this should be an easy one but I've tried several different combinations and am not able to get it to work.

Using TestSerialPort works successfully for turning on my tv with the below command.
sudo ./TestSerialPort -p /dev/ttyS0 -t "ka 01 01\r"

...response back
a 01 OK01x

The linuxmce web interface test is a different story. I click A/V properties for my TV and click the Test code button for turning on my TV and nothing ever happens no matter what I seem to put here.

The default is below which doesn't work. Can anyone please tell me exactly what to put for turning on my TV based on the succssful test above? Once I get one command right I should be able to figure the rest out. (I've also tried <$"ka 01 01\r"$> which doesn't work)

Thanks alot!

Users / LinuxMCE 10.04 Gtalk Setup
« on: October 29, 2012, 04:59:18 am »
Hi, So I was able to get gtalk working in the past in Linuxmce 810 using FreePBX but now that freepbx isn't used anymore I'm confused on how to set this back up.

I see there is an option for phone lines now and tried using the gtalk option there but it always says disconnected?

Thanks for any assistance with this.

Installation issues / LinuxMCE 10.04

Any ideas why my Linuxmce is hanging during initial reboot here? I used the latest internet install script as of today.

Installation issues / Dianemo IOS oribitor - Linuxmce
« on: October 12, 2012, 05:19:40 pm »
Hi, I downloaded the app on my ipod and have successfully connected it to Linuxmce 810. However what is the proper skin to get the dianemo look since it appears as just the standard linuxmce skin. I am assuming I don't have the right skin loaded or something wrong because when I try to touch the buttons the screen simply just refreshes on the ipod.

Users / 100% Free Outside and Inside Calling with LinuxMCE
« on: May 09, 2012, 06:51:30 pm »
....Well at least until the end of this year. I have successfully set this up on LinuxMCE 8.10 final using Google Voice.  I have found out that Asterisk support for this is basically zero at this time so I am using Yate as a gateway to do this. Inbound and outbound calls are working %100 of the time with this configuration.   Note: I am sure yate can be successfully installed on linuxmce and configured. I had trouble with this even though it seems to install successfully. Right now it is running on a separate windows virtual server.

*I understand that I may not be the first to do this with asterisk but as far as I can tell this is the only up to date documentation out there that actually works and the only one that seems to work well with linuxmce.

FreePBX/asterisk configuration (linuxmce web admin/advanced/phone setup)

The next three screenshots show the configuration for the trunk.
Outbound caller ID I have set as my google voice number (with area code) in this format: xxxxxxxxxx

The IP address and port below are the yate gateway (windows server which by the way is on a virtual machine as is my linuxmce core).  (the main configuration that tells asterisk where to route outgoing calls)

Outbound Route
Showing route name (can be anything), dial patterns, and the selected trunk (created above).

Setup an inbound route. The only requirements here are to give a description and choose an extension. My extension is actually a Cisco 7970 phone!

Click General settings and scroll all the way to the bottom and change “Allow Anonymous Inbound SIP Calls” to yes and click Submit Changes. (Note: To me this is a very little security risk, linuxmce is behind a second firewall and because no ports are forwarded to linuxmce from the second firewall the only device that will ever be allowed to call is anything within my local network and in this case it will only be the yate gateway.)  You can of course set this up to just allow the IP of the yate gw but this is the easiest and quickest way to get things working.

Be sure to click "Apply Configuration Changes" when done.

Yate Configs

Yate configuration was followed exactly with a couple exceptions via the following link:

The only tweaks to the tutorial above were related to the regexroute.conf file.
1)   You do not need to do anything with regfile.conf

2)    Do not add the following line:

3)   Do not add the following under contexts as show in the guide. Modify it as shown below and add it under [default] (change user to the asterisk ext (ex: 201) and the IP to your linuxmce IP address)


Enjoy free calling! I have some additional tweaks and troubleshooting info I would like to add.  This was possible because of the great support from the guys at yate.  A big thanks to them, mainly Paul C for his help with some of the yate configuration.

Installation issues / No Dolby or DTS?
« on: September 06, 2009, 08:09:43 pm »
Hi I installed Kubuntu 8.10 and the latest alpha build of linuxmce. I had some trouble getting my graphics and sound working at first but once I got the drivers installed and configured everything seemed to be great.  When I run the AV wizard I get the graphics configured fine and the first part of the regular sound test goes through just fine.  When it starts the DTS and Dolby tests all I hear is garbled or fuzzy sound.  I know my sound card and receiver is cable of DTS and Dolby. My sound card is a Creative XFi hooked up via optical to my receiver. Is there any other settings I need to look for and download any additional software to make it work?

Thank you!
