Installation issues / Re: Fix the torrent

Could someone please put the .torrent up on an alternative tracker?  The linuxtracker.org site appears to be soundly hosed.

Above link currently timing out.  Anyone have an alternative tracker link?

Doh.  Forgot to put the second NIC card in the hardware list.  Thanks for the reminder. 

I'll look for the 0810beta build.  Hopefully the .torrent isn't too hidden.

Thanks for the comments.

After further investigation, it appears that the RadioRA2 controller might theoretically be supported using the GSD.  Any further help on the GSD (aside from that contained in the wiki) would be appreciated.

I've read through the wiki (including Installation) and much of the forums.  Unfortunately, a lot of the wiki seems out of date, so I'm left with a question that I was hoping someone might be able to answer for me:

1. Initial test hardware for a Hybrid - I'm currently looking for a cheap but functional testing system.  I'm trying to stick with the nVidia chipset recommendation, but was wondering if anyone could comment on the below system for any obvious flaws:

AMD Athlon 5050e 2.6GHz
Asus M3A78-EM HDMI (known issues with LAN workaround known, unclear if further issues have been resolved with current 0710 or with 0810?)
Kingston 1G DDR2
Seagate/WD 320G SATA2 HDD
LiteOn/LG 22X DVDRW
Asus EN8600GT Nvidia GeForce 8600GT 256M
Dual DVI Display
Sound & LAN On Board (RealtekĀ® ALC1200 8 -Channel High Definition Audio CODEC- Optical S/PDIF out port at back I/O, Gigabit LAN)
A609 w/450W ATX Case

2.  One of the issues noted with the above hardware setup is that some of the components are noted to be working well better 0810, but not as much under 0710.  Would anyone recommend starting with 0810?  Or should I just go with 0710 and wait for a full stable 0810RC build to be released?

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
D

I'm in the process of deciding what lighting control devices I'm going to install as my house is renovated.  My builder has suggested Lutron, and I'm curious if anyone has looked into implementing support for the RadioRA2 protocol.

Lutron appears to have a reasonably good protocol specification document (http://radiora2.lutron.com/pdf/Integration_Protocol_Guide/040-249d_Integration%20Protocol.pdf).  Since I know basically nothing about the way new protocols are implemented in LMCE currently, I was hoping someone might be able to tell me just how difficult it would be to implement the RadioRA2 protocol given the current architecture?

Thanks in advance,
D

That's reasonably close.  Any familiarity with the home automation aspects specifically?

Anyone working on LMCE in the GTA?  I'm interested in getting started on my home project, but would always be interested in meeting up with more knowledgeable folks in the area.

Thanks,
D
