I saw where there might have been an attempt to get this integrated. Is there an update on this? Has anyone attempted this on the RPi? Looks like a cheaper more compact device compared to the USB UIRT.

Here's a link

I took a quick look at this and the API and you can use Lat/Lon, Zipcode, etc. Also this is not free or it is free with complications.

I will check that. I know I have been stopping the video by rebooting so... I will stop doing that.

Thanks again!

Here is the OMX log.

I will say the playback quality is quite good. Is this a new player for the RPi?

Here is the DCERouter.

give me a minute for the OMX log

Do you want the DCERouter.log?

Is someone working on a device template for the USA here? I was thinking of starting something but if someone is working on it already it would make more sense to wait. Let me know and let me know if I can help.

Pesky little bugs!
Thanks again for your efforts.

One other note... not sure if I should start another thread for this but after the last update the RPi orbiter video remote is not controlling the video. I have not looked into it much. I was going to trouble shoot a little 1st.

I will say that I just installed on a RPi B+ and it went very smooth. These things are so cool. Great job! Thanks Jason!

I found a bug in "". When running I get;
Code: [Select]
root@moon226:/usr/pluto/bin# ./
./ line 49: Video_settings: command not found

ERROR 1064 (42000) at line 1: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1

Line 49 says
Code: [Select]
Video_settings = GetDeviceData "$PK_Device" "$DEVICEDATA_Video_settings"
Should be
Code: [Select]
Video_settings=$(GetDeviceData "$PK_Device" "$DEVICEDATA_Video_settings")After this change it works fine.

I updated yesterday and the downloaded package had the typo in it. Relates to your Trac ticket 2292. This did break what was working before.

Thanks for your work Jason. I did not do anything with your trac ticket


Developers / Re: Raspberry Pi Generic Serial Device
« on: November 25, 2014, 02:43:08 pm »
Hi Andy

I do have devices/code for the core/pc. They are written in Ruby. I do have one written in C++ but kept having problems with the device becoming disabled after a Quick Reload and switched back to Ruby. I know it's something I'm doing but just lost patience with myself. Everything is still pretty much event driven still with the hardware having a parent GSD device on any PC (including the RPI) handling the serial communication, then children under it like a door sensor or an on/off switch. This is pretty basic. I would like to put together an irrigation controller that would be a bit smarter. I was waiting to see what happens with the weather plugin and see if I can use that to effect zone times based on recent climate data. I am also adding functionality to handle analog inputs like temperature sensors.

The audio switch is a bit more complex but still basically event driven. The parent device handles serial communication with the hardware and then I adapted the audio zone template #1867 as child devices. The event would be something like "listening to music in bedroom - turn on audio switch bedroom input to bedroom output". I create some custom scenarios where I can set up a group of output zones to be connected to a single input. The last being the reason for building it.

For the RPI I use it in remote locations. At the end of my driveway (which is 600' long) I have one of my switches connected to it. The hardware is connected to roadway and photo eye sensors. I have a directional wifi bridge set up that also sends an IP camera's RTSP stream. (I wrote an adapter so LMCE could handle the RTSP stream). I have the same setup at the garden/green house.

Funny you mentioned the RPI A+ I saw that and I received a touch screen for the RPI ($25US) and plan on using it with the A+. It looks real interesting but I think it will need a custom J-box plate. Not the end of the world and it would be a lot more powerful than the micro controller type I was thinking of and I think a bit easier to get to the end product. I will keep you informed on the progress with that.

Take care
