Users / WIFI RGB/W Lights
« on: February 15, 2014, 02:25:01 pm »
Hi, I have purchased some RGB LED lights which can be controlled using a central controller that accepts basic UDP network packets to make it change.

These are mine (v2): http://www.limitlessled.com/dev/
They are also sold under the mi-light and easybulb brand names - although I believe they use slightly different commands depending on version.

I tried to create a template and made a basic ruby script to turn them on similar to this:

require 'socket'
socket = UDPSocket.new
socket.send([0x22, 0x00, 0x55].pack('C*'), 0, '192.168.80.240', 50000)

I have tried a few different things and was wandering where I was going wrong? The icon to turn them on/off appear in the orbiters but they dont react to the orbiters. I also believe they don't report status (on/off, etc..) they only accept commands.

Cheers

Feature requests & roadmap / Temperature displays in motion cams
« on: January 19, 2013, 06:10:53 pm »
I've done this the manual way so I know it's possible and probably not "too hard" to implement - I guess...
I have some home-brew temperature sensors attached to the devices that control my webcams and they work (to some degree) with LinuxMCE's motion-wrapper. If using linuxMCE supported temperature probes I imagine it would be pretty easy to go:

If room has security cameras and temperature probes run this: /usr/bin/wget –delete-after “http://192.168.80.1:8888/$CAMERANUMBER/config/set?text_left=$ROOMNAME – $TEMPERATURE"

This was part of the manual solution I used: /usr/bin/wget –delete-after “http://192.168.80.1:8888/1/config/set?text_left=Mancave Temp – $CONDITIONS c”

Which produces this image (text is at bottom left):


I've done a vague writeup here if anyone is interested: http://www.modlog.net/?p=571

Cheers.

No sure about everyone else but I use the drive for backups and other files, and to stop it checking those folders I use %.folderlock files so it skips checking them; eg: "Backups.folderlock"

Users / Webcam Viewing on Orbiter freezes
« on: December 02, 2012, 12:42:54 pm »
I had a quick look before to see if anyone else has this issue; I have 2 USB webcams setup  but when viewing the live feed on the windows orbiters the screen often locks up or often the screen does not present an image (I don't mean the grey one that has a time stamp). Other than that issue the webcams work fine for recording.
I can view the webcams through the web interfaces for each for as long as I want and they work fine. Using Linuxmce 10.04 and has been happening for a while.

Ideas?

Just a little thing, wizards are good for the first time or two through a system. After that they are an excise and an annoyance.
Agreed, although if they have a 'skip' or 'manual configure' button, everyone's happy :-)

Users / Re: LinuxMCE community, lets talk.
« on: November 10, 2012, 02:35:34 pm »
For Christmas this year (or next) I want Linuxmce to give me:
1. One Android app on my phone that allows me to use everything that Linuxmce has to offer securely and remotely (latency permitting). Eg; view security footage, Make a SIP call, view files, etc.. Possibly like a background service?
2. I would also like to have a complete live backup option; 1 that backups up root, data/media, and the database to a baremetal recovery without having to turn it off and have down time while it pushes data over the network/external drive.
3. qOrbiters on MD's please.

Cheers

Users / No items in addsoftware page / Bluray issues
« on: November 03, 2012, 01:59:50 pm »
Hi All, I have been using LinuxMCE through 7,8 and now 10.04, and never seen anything on the Add Software page when setting up a MD so I assumed it has never worked, although I have read a few posts describing setting up bluray that refer to "hd ripping tools". Does it work and how do I fix it?

Also installed a SATA bluray drive and ripping fails; I assume it goes to ripDiskWrapper.sh, which then goes to "ripBDHD.sh" which doesn't exist. Has that feature been removed and left up to the individual person to deal with?

Many thanx, Cheers

Thats a full stop.

What version of Android are you running? Sounds like a modded version as I have no experience the config not being placed in its location on standard android.

Agreed, I had the same issue running Android on an N900 - modded version = no config file, I believe it was a permissions issue.

Users / Re: mysqld CPU spike issue still around...
« on: August 26, 2012, 12:28:52 pm »
Possibly try installing mrtg, or collectd to graph cpu usage, that way you'll be able to better determine when it happens and possibly why. What CPU/RAM does the affected system have?

« on: July 30, 2012, 02:34:46 pm »
I had the same issue when using softraid and it kept marking it as offline when clearly it was fine (I think the UUID was detected wrong). I used to have to go into the webpage mark it as online, do a quick reload, and resync the directory. I had the issue when one of the MD's was turned off then back on again (daily).

Although I have manual mount points.

Developers / Re: Nokia N800 Orbiter easy build

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the N800 pretty similar to the N900?

Or are you working on the qOrbiter for the N800?
