Users / Re: Running LinuxMCE on low power system (Odroid and similar) ?
« Last post by posde on February 07, 2016, 07:59:16 pm »
bulek,

one thing to note is: The Odroid is priced in a range that it might even be a no-brainer to just play with it, and see how go it works for your situation. From the feedback I gathered so far from people using it, it is quite powerful as a LinuxMCE core system. IF you do encounter issues where something is blocking stuff or similar, I am sure we can all find a solution.

- how do you cope with video surveillance, large media disk, asterisk, large SQL database, ... ?

I have probably more media than most people and have no problems with the sql database size at all.  My media lives on a NAS, however I know one person simply uses a large drive plugged in USB3 on the odroid.  None of us have any video surveillance at the moment so I couldn't comment on that.

- do you have also MDs on cores (I'm quite happy with simpler MD on core - using UI1 on main touchscreen) ?

I do not run an MD on the core, and I don't think any of us are at the moment.  It might be possible but we are running the odroids as 'core only' devices.

- I guess you use RPis v2 for MDs - are they full blown MDs? Can you start media on them from Orbiters ? Is RS232 TV control supported ?

I have a mix, follow the link in my sig to see what I'm running.  The rpi2's are full blown MDs (UI1 only).  They act like any other MD and you can control them from any orbiter in the house just like any other MD.  RS232 control is fully supported.  I have rs232 control of one of my TVs, CEC control of another and UIRT control of another.  The big difference is that the arm device is much too slow for PXE style booting.  All of my MDs are 'disked' MDs (rpis from their SD cards and the zotac from a small SSD).  And I lie there, I have a single old RPI1 doing audio (squeeze) only that is PXE booting from the odroid, the others were just too slow in PXE config.

One idea is to divide system and have video surveillance on separate system (one of chinese good products) and lessen the burden on those cores...

I know nothing of this, however I figure there must be a way to move the video stuff to a secondary low power device and have lmce interface with it.  Again, I know nothing of how this is currently implemented in lmce so I'm speculating here.

I hope that helps you out a bit, check my sig and see what I've got setup.  And check gitlab out for specific issues/bugs that are known.

Awesome to hear how that's proceeding!  The asterisk thing is a known upstream bug in asterisk, if this is the same issue.  Phone lines will not register properly until an outgoing call is made, this is due to how asterisk verifies phone lines and DNS names.  If an IP address is used instead of a DNS name then all phone lines should work properly with no additional massaging.  If this is not the issue then please give us a ticket with specifics.  :) 

Keep having fun Mav!  And thanks for testing the new internal drive detection scripts (and fixing an error I had made)!!!

Installation issues / What I got working in 14.04
« Last post by maverick0815 on February 07, 2016, 02:12:36 pm »
Usually I write what is not working, now for somthing good, that is working, mostly out of the box, here is my list:
HDMI-sound on the core
Mythtv
internal drives found
NAS-Box found, including correct access rights, which has recently been an issue for me on 12.04, dunno whats changed
MD creation (Asrock ion 330)
Squeezebox, Player running on RPI2 as Internet-radio
Mediatomb
Asterisk, all phones registered out of the box, no need to restart manually( which has also been an issue for me on 12.04)
qorbiter on my mobile phones

I don't claim this to be complete, but I will keep working on it.

Users / Running LinuxMCE on low power system (Odroid and similar) ?
« Last post by bulek on February 07, 2016, 12:05:38 pm »
Hello,

I'll probably try to establish LinuxMCE core for my home - currently I'm running Dianemo, but that's another story... My plan is to do it in low power sense...

I've got pretty interesting suggestions from users running core on ODROID devices. These really seem to be interesting option. But I'm also curious about other lower power options.

I've failry complex system in my house - have 3  Cisco 7970 phones, doorphone, lower automation layer from Cybrotech with integrated heat pump, ventilation, lighting, irrigation, sauna, bathtub, almost any other existing device,..., video surveillance with 4 analog cameras, whole house media&audio with two channels via Marantz SR5600 and speaker selektor, few MDs, one on main TV and 17 inch touchscreen in living room as a main system control)... Over 300 variables flowing between lower layer automation from Cybrotech and LMCE. Currently integration is made via Perl implementation of LMCE device.

ODROID suggestion is really interesting to me, but I'm curious how this fits complexity stated above ?

I'd be really happy to read more details about those setups... In the mean time I have few quick questions :
- how do you cope with video surveillance, large media disk, asterisk, large SQL database, ... ?
- do you have also MDs on cores (I'm quite happy with simpler MD on core - using UI1 on main touchscreen) ?
- I guess you use RPis v2 for MDs - are they full blown MDs? Can you start media on them from Orbiters ? Is RS232 TV control supported ?

One idea is to divide system and have video surveillance on separate system (one of chinese good products) and lessen the burden on those cores...

Maybe there is also option of full blown PC, but still on lower power side ? Any suggestions ?



Thanks in advance,

regards,

bulek.

ocho looked at it and the IR code download should work again.

I have checked that. /etc/apache2/sites-enabled has a symlink for mythweb.conf, which is in /etc/apache2/sites-available
I also verified in the mythweb.conf the directory tags
Quote
<Directory "/var/www/html/mythweb/data">
Options +FollowSymLinks +IncludesNoExec
<Directory "var/www/hml/mythweb" >

That is also what I'm supposed to check according to mythtv.org
The links are all working..so right now I don't know what else to check for.
I always get
Quote
The requested URL /mythweb/ was not found on this server.
for dcerouter/mythweb
unless the url has changed to something I don't know...well I don't know why its not running, but of course my knowledge is limited

Just want to give a heads up that any upgrades that include the dcerouter package, or any attempts to add/edit DeviceTemplates with IR data will currently fail.  Hopefully this will be solved asap.
