Users / Re: HDMI-CEC control (RaspberryPi and PulseEight)
« Last post by posde on October 23, 2014, 07:52:33 pm »
Do you plan on extending HDMI-CEC to allow the rpi to turn on/off the TV as well? and do input switching and stuff, ie. to use HDMI-CEC as a sort of GSD replacement?

Users / HDMI-CEC control (RaspberryPi and PulseEight)
« Last post by phenigma on October 23, 2014, 06:13:48 pm »
I am happy to announce that initial HDMI-CEC control has been added to the Raspberry Pi.  It is now possible to control your rpi MD with your television's remote control.  A compatible television is required.  Control should also be possible from your TV remote if you have a PulseEight HDMI CEC adaptor connected to your non-rpi MD.

Current control is one way, work will continue to add external device control in the future.

Enjoy!

We're adding support for Sonos Radio to Dianemo and we are looking for anyone who would be interested to join our Beta test program and get early access to this great new capability. If you are someone who already has some Sonos installed in your home, or you are thinking of installing Sonos and would be prepared to get involved, we'd be very interested to hear from you. Our support for Sonos Radio is already in its late development stage so your role would be to report any final issues you experience prior to release by simply using your System to listen to the Radio - its a tough job but someone has to do it!

The only requirement to join the Sonos Radio Beta program is that you have, or plan to have a Dianemo system and have at least some Sonos Radio products.

Please email us at; inquiries@ellipticalcurve.com with 'Sonos Radio Beta Invite' as the subject line of your email if your interested.

All the best

We're adding support for the LightwaveRF (http://www.lightwaverf.com or for their product details http://www.lightwaverf.co.uk) range of wireless lighting, power and heating control products and we are looking for anyone who would be interested to join our Beta test program. If you are someone who already has some LightwaveRF installed in your home, or you are thinking of installing it and would be prepared to get involved, we'd be interested to hear from you. Our support for LightwaveRF is already in its late development stage (lighting & power products are our initial focus - energy & security to follow in our first update after release) and so your role would be to report any final issues you experience prior to release by simply using your System.

The only requirement to join the LightwaveRF Beta program is that you have, or plan to have a Dianemo system and have at least some LightwaveRF products.

Reading the thread above I can't see any mention of the registration process - without it you may get intermittent or unreliable control capability.
Correct.  I did this simply by using php cURL from the command line. The issues I was running into is my particular model does not use the same ports as the Sonys that I could find the protocols for. I did register my core as a device before I began setting up the template for the device itself and I still have some kinks to work out such as hard coding in the magic packet for WOL.

Users / Re: Why CEC Control Your TV?
« Last post by totallymaxed on October 22, 2014, 04:54:46 pm »
So, Andrew, if users just have the CEC from the RPI to power on the TV, does that mean they occupy one of the HDMI inputs on the TV just to do that? I'm presuming the RPI CEC can't "pass through" the signal from another device?

Pretty poor show that TVs with IP control don't implement WOL. So much for SMART.

Correct the Rpi has no HDMI pass-through on-board but other devices on the HDMI bus probably do. The HDMI device chain is in fact a 'bus' with device addresses for each device attached. So in theory your TV should be controllable wherever it is in the device chain even if the Rpi is physically connected to another devices HDMI port. However some older TV's (and possibly some new ones too) play 'free & loose' with implementing the CEC standard and this may cause the TV to not respond correctly when the Rpi is not directly connected to one of the TV's HDMI ports.

I agree re WOL not being possible on TV's is a pain. But currently its a general problem. See my earlier post though about manufacturers switching to SOC's that will enable WOL to be delivered - but its a few years away still apparently.

Hi,

All Sony IP controllable TV's/BluRay Players require that the controlling device register with the TV/BluRay Player before reliable control can commence. You need to place the Sony device in 'Registration Mode' - a function that will be found in one of the Settings screens. You then need to register your control device by sending a 'register' command to the Sony device you want to control. In the Dianemo Sony TV & BluRay player device templates we have a 'Register' command implemented for this purpose. On receipt of the 'Register' command the BluRay player or TV should then confirm the registration on screen...and your all set.

Reading the thread above I can't see any mention of the registration process - without it you may get intermittent or unreliable control capability.

All the best

Andy

Developers / Re: Open Source Dianemo

We've launched a Kickstarter Campaign today to fund the development of Open Source Dianemo;

http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8880.msg100040#msg100040

Well our initial campaign was not terribly successful in the sense of meeting our campaign goal. However in other ways it was actually very successful in that we got some really very thoughtful and sincere feedback from you guys - very much appreciated indeed. We also learnt a lot of lessons about going about a Kickstarter campaign and we are looking at these alongside the feedback we received from everyone here.

We do plan to kick off a new Kickstarter campaign in the near future and we will be asking for your input here prior to finalising its make up and taking it live. I'll post here again as soon I can.

Thanks again.

Users / Dianemo Athena UI Beta Test Program - More Invites Available
« Last post by totallymaxed on October 22, 2014, 12:35:41 pm »
Hi al,

We're getting closer to being ready to open up our Athena UI Beta test program to invited participants. We've had an excellent response so far, and many of you have asked for an invite. Thanks. Today we're announcing a further 10 invites are being made available to enable more people to join the Beta program. These are being offered on a strictly first come first serve basis.

To be considered you must obviously own a Dianemo system. But luckily its never been cheaper to set up a Dianemo system - see here; http://forum.linuxmce.org/index.php?topic=8880.msg100221#msg100221. Although its not a requirement, it would also be useful if you also owned either an Android/iOS device and/or a Rpi running Dianemo Raspbmc-CEC as we would like to get some feedback about using those platforms with Athena.

If your interested in joining the Beta program please contact us asap; inquiries@ellipticalcurve.com with the Subject line of; "Athena Beta - Invite Request"

All the best

Andy
