as for submitting the codes, do you have a trac ticket for which you submitted?

If not, please create a trac ticket, and submit your codes using sqlCVS diff.


Hi Thom

I will create a trac ticket, i did do the sqlCVS commit, if I remember correctly, but I will check tonite.


I will post my IR codes for you tonite.

Hi Bongowongo

Here is a look at the two version I'm working on:
The idea of this version is that all the devices will be grouped together by parent device, and all the device's settings will be in the same block/table.

The other Idea im playing with is this, where I just dump the data from the tables into a html format.

IF you look at the 2nd example I have implemented the linking of the Foreign Key to the primary key.

Which one would be easier to use?

If you can tell me what times you are online I can try and catch you on IRC or skype or gtalk, and explain where I am thinking of going.

Hi Guys

Im making some good progress on this, I am working on two models (1.Pretty Display 2.HTML table dump), but have also run into a bit of a issue.

The HTML file I am making is already sitting at 15Mb and that is only showing the information out of pluto_main.
I know the normal pastebin doesnt allow files that big, any suggestions on how we can share the configuration summary files?

Thanks Posde.

Has anyone got experience with the DVB-S cards?

If I understand this correctly I will have to get the following:
DVB-S Card :

Then a CI link:

And then a CAM Module:

Sorry for the stupid questions, but as you can see these things arent exactly cheap and I do not want to get the wrong components.

Hi Guys

Living in South Africa our satellite provider is DSTV/Multichoice.

And to have any kind of quality from them you need to go to HD since capturing SD and having myth show it on a HD screen you just
really end up with crappy quality TV.

I did some research on their decoder and it seems the only way to get HD quality out of it is through HDMI.

Now the problem I have is that the HDMI port needs to be HDCP compliant.

Is there any recording devices out there that supports this?
As I would still like to be able to record the shows through mythtv and not using the decoder.

Any info will be greatly appreciated.

Hi Guys

This is still very much a work in progress, but I thought I would share what I have so far.

All sections will be hidden by default, all you will see is the installation number, and from there you will be able to drill down into each section.

I added some colors to to the tables to you can see what is linked to what.

For A/V Equipment I still wanna list all the inputs and outputs and then show where they go to.
What I have in mind for FK_xxx settings it that it will have a anchor that will link to the device when you click on it.

This is gonna take a while to get working like what I have in mind and I'm still trying to get myself familiar with the db and how things fit together.

Anyway, just a quick example at , just copy the code and save it into a html document.

Let me know what you think

Good stuff.

Will start playing with some ideas tonite, and work on reverse engineering the tables.

How they link and how I can show the information :)

I will keep you guys updated on the progress, BTW is would I be able to post the html pages in the forum?

BTW, would you prefer it to be done in perl/cgi or php?

Hi Guys

I have an idea I want to run by you guy and see if there is a actual need for this.

I want to write a script that will take your configuration from the db and put it all into a single HTML page.

This will then give you the overview of how your system is configured and will allow you to drill down into each component for the
options linked to it, hopefully I will be able to make a nice visual representation of how all your a/v equipment fits together. Maybe even include the last 100 lines from the log files for each device.

The reason I am thinking about this, is I often see people having issues on the forum and no nice way of them sharing their system configuration.

What do you guys think?
Is this something that is needed and or wanted?
Any suggestions welcome

Hi Guys

I followed the install process Web_Orbiter_2.0 wiki. Everything generates and seems to be fine, yet it doesn't start the orbiter.

Wow, thanks for all the replies, and information guys.....

Just a quick question, would I be able to test it on my iphone3g?

What is the install process for ipad/iphone ?

Cause then I can atleast test it without having to buy the ipad, which does sound like a good idea :)
