Users / Re: Raspberry Pi as UPnP player under Dianemo
« Last post by totallymaxed on August 23, 2014, 04:18:25 pm »
Hi,

I'm back to this problem. I intend to replace my MD with RPi and rasbmc image.

I've followed instructions on Wiki page closely, but I must be doing something wrong. I've added upnp plugin and upnp device...

Situation is like this:
- if I start media from within XBMC then I can pause it from Orbiter (if in correct room)
- but if I start media from Orbiter it won't start on RPi (nothing happens)

What I didn't clearly seen is that option of choosing upnp or samba mode when first going into Video or Audio browser. Also I don't know how to do this "... you would use either UPnP mode (set this in Web Admin)...".

There is something still missing here - please can you help me ? Media config is written above - is it right to setup upnp player device for both Audio and Video commands ?

Also another question: from inside XBMC - will it find media from Dianemo as upnp server or should I access media via samba server ?

Thanks in advance,
regards,
Bulek.

To set upnp mode from web admin;

Wizards->Basic Info->Installation->'enable upnp media browsing'

Make sure there is no MM in the room your RPi is in.

Yes Rpi can be set for video/audio commands if no controlled amplifier is in use in the room.

I think the most important one is to be able to control the PVR to play tv and record etc since that would be something not possible with only the TV with upnp

Oh we do that too. We support IP control of SmartTV's and PVR/STB's, we also support CEC control over IP of TV's too. None of that requires any MD's at all.

All the best

As with most media players you can control Raspbmc using upnp control but that does not give you access to all of the XBMC UI. With upnp I can send go to a room with a Raspbmc device and stream some video content to it from my Orbiter, and I can control the playback of that content too - play, pause etc.

Sounds good. Maybe the QOrbiter or HTML orbiter can be add as a plugin. You mean that you cannot control XMBC from another orbiter? That seems like important to be able to use TV or did you solve that differently?

What is then still missing if those 2 points are added? Maybe rs-232 and usb uirt control support? I suppose squeezeslite is already supported?

Yes both SqueezeLite (supports Spotify Premium) and Squeezeslave is supported and full virtualisation of sound cards too so that you can virtualise a 7.1 card in 4x virtual stereo cards etc.

We already support Raspbmc in fact - the only thing on your list we don't have is an XBMC plugin to control Dianemo or the control from an Orbiter. But everything else is there. After all once you add Raspbmc to Rpi you have one of the best full featured & open media players you can buy.

Hi,

maybe I'm typical case matching Andrew's thoughts.

I gave up maintaining MD in living room and decided to go with RPi only as media player. Let me stress, that I don't use IP TV anymore, cause maintenance was continous headache - my ISP keeps changing setup. Now ISP provides web app to follow another IPTV stream and that is much easier. But before that, my vnc server setup was really performing well (central VNC server received iptv streams from dedicated network line and then served to any vnc client in LAN).

But now I'd just like to get simple media player working in my living room and make my TV only a bit smarter. Maybe new HTML5 Orbiter will work on RPi ? Then I could also control Dianemo system from this smart tv enhancement... It would be nice if I could make simpler version of HTML5 Orbiter with few basic commands that I need most of the time... If that fails, maybe XBMC plugin to issue those commands is a way to go...

Regards,
Bulek.

I was just thinking.... I have no experience with any of the following items but maybe its possible and a good way to tackle the issues from both sides:

* use xbmc as the upnp device/player
* xbmc has the ability of playing liveTV via a PVR backend (mythtv)
* use a xmbc plugin to control linuxmce on screen
* be able to use remotes that come with the / are compatible with xbmc to control xbmc & linuxmce via the plugin
* be able to control xbmc via remote orbiters.

Seems to me the best of both worlds and because since you can 'just' use xmbc you don't have to support the hardware yourself while still being able to use the features discussed above.

It is probably some HTML/CSS problem that appears in chrome. You could try to use a different browser.
I find firefox to be the best for viewing the advanced zwave page, I found it unworkable with chrome.
