This is a very very nice idea Tschak! As usal... ;)

Unfortunately i'm a beginner in programming and therefore no big help.
In addition i think i'm learning the wrong language for this project but that brings me to the point: Why don't you use Java?
It would run on all three mentioned platforms without compiling and stuff.

Most probably because you know C much better?!

So long,

Klovell, of course i liked Ironman! In fact i turned on my ESX and started playing with all my homeautomation stuff right after watching the movie ;)
And it's a shame that i saw the movie a few days ago for the first time...

I like you're idea klovell!
Jarvis is great for a home automation system.

Unfortunately i just saw IronMan a few days ago for the first time and therefore decided to use "SARAH" ;)

Mine would be "SARAH" just like the house in Eureka.

Looks like it's going to be the LG 47LX6500 which has a LED-Backlight, 3D and RS-232.

Thanks for your opinions!!!

Indeed ethernet control would be nice but does any of the available TVs support that?
From my research so far there is no Samsung with RS232.
LG is at the moment the most interessting for me but Pana is also nice but they are much more expensive.

I'll have another look when i'm home.

Thanks for all the replies!

Btw. i don't know if i even turned on my head while writing this post... Upnp and turning on the TV or switching the channels?! Sorry guys... :)

Does Sharp still sell TVs? Didn't see them in Germany for a looooong time :P

There are some nice Samsung TVs out there but i don't know if they have RS-232. Anyway, i would prefer having a USB-Port so that i don't need an additional RS232-USB-Converter.
I'll check whats available at my favourite store and report back but i think it'll be a Samsung, Pana or LG.

Hey guys,
it's time for a new TV and therefore i need your help.
I know we have lots of threats about that but i'm looking for something like 50" and 3D.
Is there a general rule i can follow like if it does upnp we will be able to control it (as soon as upnp is available in lmce).
Or does anybody have any recommendations?

Didn't try the orbiter so far but archos9 is a Windows-Pad?!
I would prefer to have something for Android ;)

Thanks Andrew for the detailed explanation!
These are very good news to me and i appreciate the incredible work all the Dianemo and LinuxMCE developers are doing.

Users / Is LinuxMCE able to keep up with Dianemo

Hey guys,
i like LinuxMCE very much but i'm wondering if it's able to keep up with Dianemo.
For example if we're talking about upnp and stuff like this.

As far as i understood there is a close relationship but i would also be interessted where the big differences are between Dianemo 8.10 and LinuxMCE 8.10 or when it will be available 10.10.

Thanks and sorry for the stupid question ;)


I don't wanted to affront you... For you this might be the right choice for me it's not.
What a horrible world would it be if everybody is doing the same things?! ;)

I recognized that there are makefiles too. I was just wondering...

Microsoft tools maybe usefull to someone but i simply don't like them.
Why should i pay for software if i can get another one for free. And all the opensource toold are most of the time even better!
I don't like C# that much because it's based on closed source libs and is not portable to other OSes.
Thats why i've started to lean C++.


omg... Why is all this Z-Wave stuff written in Visual C?
That doesn't really fit as this is an Opensource Linux distro and the modules are written using a closed source Windows tool.

Thank you very much Thom.
Once more a very useful and accurate answer.
