I have checked in the code, and prepared a merge request to master...but polly needs to finish working on gitlab before it can go through... as soon as it goes through, and we get a package, i'll make an announcement that it can be selected.

If you take game player out of the mix, I do not see anything the rpis can't do. Granted, I didn't yet get of my butt to make the VDR Player work for the rpi, but it is on my radar of things to do. Probably as soon as SD TV is being turned off in Germany, I'll go and bite the bullet. The VDR Player device itself is already being built, iirc, so it is just a matter of installing the necessary vdr packages.

Thanks Posde for quick reply,

The matrix is serial controlled, I was hoping to use it as more of a multiple hdmi switch rather than matrix all outputs simultaneously etc. That said, thanks for the feedback.

Virtualizing mds was due to no vdr/myth on rpi and looking forward for gpu intensive uses such as game player (waiting with hope and patience for Thoms  work) and UI2. These would be for living areas where live TV for example is desired. Set-top boxes are no longer useful nor affordable in Australia these days.

I3/i5 Nuc or equivalent would quickly see me spending another good chunk of cash with Aud prices. Hence the option for vm and leverage some existing power.

Garath,

I have yet to see a working LinuxMCE install with a HDMI matrix switch. Support for the matrix switch is one of the things that set Dianemo apart from LinuxMCE.

For MDs, I do not see a need for virtualisation due to the availability and support of RPIs.

HDMI matrix switches only use, imho, would be, if you need to run settop boxes to get to your daily dose of TV broadcasts from a PayTV provider.

Users / New Build - questions on virtualized approach
« Last post by Garbui on Today at 12:26:57 pm »
Hi all,
After spending far too much time and effort chasing support from Dianemo and sadly ending up with no further contact and no system, I am Looking to build a new Linuxmce system and get back into it. I have a new replacement system and considering virtualizing the core and two mds. The hardware, bios and cpu support vt-d so running proxmox and with a couple of gpu I am hoping to passthrough a card for each md and distribute via hdmi matrix.

Thanks to user Deepb for the inspiration and wiki entry.

I have zwave lighting devices and will be looking to utilize my aeon labs usb controller and usb sound card for squeezeslaves and a Hd homerun for broadcast tv. So other than working my way through proxmox setup and virtualize networking and pxe boot for mds in vm, are there any immediate pitfalls for this approach that other experienced users can advise?

I am also keen to setup remote access, qorbiter, a couple of rpi md and better tv and movie tagging with linuxmce. Can anybody provide a quick status update on how these aspects are / are not implemented?

Thanks for the help in advance guys.

Cheers Garath

It's almost there. While video looks to be very well in sync, I am not recording the audio because there is approximately a 40 to 80 millisecond difference between media directors, which must still be addressed.. possibly through a processing delay... But as you can see, it works, even with DVD media (and menus!)

With this feature, this means that VLC Player is ready for beta testing.

Installation issues / Re: PnP Install Broken for Phoenix USB Solo Mic
« Last post by cafedumonde on March 22, 2017, 03:59:42 am »

Microphones are now working!! Darkwizard pointed me to the sound card selection for the orbiter phones in webadmin. The Solo mics appeared in the drop down. I selected them manually and did a quick reload.

As for the ticket, the script in /usr/pluto/bin definetly needs to be changed in order to work correctly. Not sure if there is anything else needed for PnP.

Nonetheless, I am good for now. Thanks again to Darkwizard.

I am using the Aeon Labs Stick Gen5 with very good result, controlling approximately 20 lights.

Is Z-Wave still the way to go for control of lighting, climate, and security devices? If yes, what is the currently recommended controller? A lot of the ones in the wiki seem difficult to find. There are a number of MiCasaVerde Vera-lite controllers on ebay, and this is referenced in the Wiki in the Dianemo entry but the device template referenced (2060) does not exist on my system. Aeon Labs does not appear in the manufaturer drop down. What are people using?

Thanks,

CDM
