Installation issues / Re: Installing 12.04

Hey!  You'll need to install on a 12.04 LTS Precise Pangolin Kubuntu installation.  We do not have support for Utopic.

Marketplace / Dianemo: Several spotify streams, multi source possible?
« Last post by gnaffs on December 13, 2014, 06:20:36 pm »
Hi,

I wonder if it is possible to configure different spotify accounts, eg one for each user or if it is possible to play for ex one spotify stream in one room and another spotify stream in another room.

Best Regards Krister

Installation issues / Installing 12.04

Hey,

I'm trying to install the 12.04 with the 'oh crap the dvd did not work for me' way.
      http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Installing_1204

But once i've downloaded the script, i encounter issues to download the soft:

Users / Re: Airplayer device as Audio for a room?
« Last post by totallymaxed on December 12, 2014, 05:26:22 pm »
Oh I see airplayer provides a destination for other non-Linuxmce devices...? Turns out the cheap devices (soundmate M1) run openwrt, I just have to get squeezeslave and alsa compiled for them.

Cheers, yeah it would be a good future feature, but after watching the weather temperature demo (very well explained), its out of my league.

One limitation with Airplay audio is that it has no audio synch capability ie you can't stream to several devices and have them stay in synch. LMS & SqueezeLite will do that very nicely.

I'd suggest SqueezeLite rather than Squeezeslave as it supports the Spotify LMS plugin and this opens up Spotify streaming.

All the best

Users / Re: Raspberry Pi Model A+ Experiences
« Last post by totallymaxed on December 12, 2014, 05:22:16 pm »
I have run orbiter on an Adafruit touchscreen.  The screens are much too small to be usefull as a full orbiter, a minimal version *could* work but that is a lot of effort.  Running a weborbiter or something similar, as totallymaxed suggests, is likely the best option for the A+.

J.

...we're looking at custom Orbiter UI layouts for very constrained resolution displays. These might just display say lighting controls and maybe audio/TV sources on the small display in-the-wall. It would be a full Athena Orbiter but the UI would limit it to delivering specific control functionality. That Ui change would be customisable for each Orbiter installed in a system just by editing the HTML5 code & CSS.

You could do something along these lines with the current LinuxMCE/Dianemo UI1 Orbiters too... but you'd need to design & implement a new skin in HA Designer and that is non trivial unless you know what your doing (and even then its still not easy!). Not sure about Qorbiter but I assume you could do something again along these lines in that too...

All the best

True, but if you think it get ugly here, it's much worse in the IRC channel.

Sometimes lurking in the IRC channel with a bowl of popcorn is better than TV.

Not that I've ever done that  :o

Marketplace / Dianemo Exposed - Building a super affordable Dianemo System
« Last post by totallymaxed on December 12, 2014, 03:34:02 pm »
We're always interested to hear from customers about their experiences and projects they implement with Dianemo. Recently I spoke to a customer that had put together a system around an Intel NUC PC and several Raspberry Pi's and i thought that I would give you an overview of his system.

The Intel NUC this customer used is this one http://www.quietpc.com/int-nuc-de3815tykhe?gclid=Cj0KEQiAwaqkBRDHx6rzxMqAobgBEiQAxJazJ9ZrsIb5n_3kFicTc0I3m-b9KU8fEswtiMVNCvcHUggaAslN8P8HAQ

At just over £100 UKP this NUC PC makes for an incredibly affordable NerveCentre (our name for a Core). You need to add some memory, an SSD and a USB NIC to that but its still way affordable. The NUC is really tiny, just 190x116x40 mm in size, and it uses just 5w of energy when running which is incredibly low for an X86 based machine. The NUC is a completely fanless design and because you typically use an SSD with it there are no moving parts at all...and so it is truly silent in operation. This tiny, cold running & silent machine means you can basically locate it anywhere and it will not get in the way or make even a small bedroom buzz with fan noise.

Because this customers system was installed in a new, small 2 bedroom apartment it was decided that wifi was the way to go for all components of the system. Their are 4 Raspberry Pi's in this system - one is connected to the Living Room SmartTV for CEC control and audio and the others are used purely for audio streaming in the Kitchen/Bedrooms. All the Raspberry Pi's connect to the apartments Wifi network driven from the LAN side of the NC as usual. This system has a small NAS (not sure of the make) for streaming ripped video and iTunes via LMS - again nothing special there. There is also a sprinkling of ZWave devices in this system too - some lighting, PIR's and temp/humidity sensors.

The impressive thing about this system is that its doing all this on such affordable and energy efficient hardware and all over wifi too. Total cost of the hardware for this system was about £430 UKP (or about 675 USD) which is amazingly affordable.

For more information or questions pm me here or email me at inquiries@ellipticalcurve.com

All the best

Andy
