Hello

After taking the plunge and trying to build LinuxMCE after being a consumer for too long. One of the things I notice is the problem of keeping backward compatibility while working on newer Ubuntu branches.

Would it be feasible to add some branches in git like ubuntu-14.04, ubuntu-16.04, ubuntu-18.04 for example, to allow maintenance on these older Ubuntu versions without holding up current developments?

I know some things have do be done by conditionals in the code for each branch and there is the database to consider but some things in the code repo can only be done with another branch from what I can tell.

Anyone have thoughts on this?

Cheers.

Yup, that's it.  I use multiple player templates.  Just be sure the port is set properly and commands should be routed accordingly.

Quick question, if you want to control more that one player(hdmi cable box, xbmx, Blu-Ray player) do you add several of the child device below and set the port to each hdmi input device?

Generic HDMI-CEC Player (DT#2305) to control your CEC enabled CD/DVD/Blu-Ray players.

Thanks

Good you got it working.

Would like to add to what Garbui mentioned, the first time I added a zwave plus device a while back, a hardwired plug, I was amazed to see how it fixed the connection issues with other devices because it acts as a repeater. I've added a few more devices since then and the network seems fine so wholeheartedly agree adding more devices are better, even one if it can act as a repeater in the mesh.

USB cable are a lot cheaper though, it's good to see how issues like this can be tackled in multiple ways, didn't know having a second controller was at all possible.

Cheers.

I don't see why multiple zwave networks wouldn't work.  You would only include certain devices into each network and adjust the controlled by, as you say.  I've not known anyone to do this but it could work.

I think the raspberry pi zwave module is supported by openzwave, but it would not be auto detected by LMCE at this point as no one has attempted to use one that I know of.

Understanding Zwave is a mesh network.


Is multiple controller sticks supported, let's say one on a ground floor the other on a second floor, and for the controlled by, you tell which switches is on which controller?

Not sure if this is still valid, but say it on argo control.

Would this (RaZberry Pi Z-Wave module) be supported in a Raspberry MD or at all?

I'm glad you have managed to get things working.  I did start an upgrade to the zwave system some time ago but didn't complete it.  Once that is done the openzwave interface should have better knowledge of a lot more devices.

I got it to work.

After lucking out with the MD (raspberry 2), not even getting a view under Automation -> zwave, I moved my core from inside "hide away location" so I don't get the dropping issue, in light of my minimal switches.

Deleted the existing zwave device, then added back the zwave device to the core, no luck either.

Thus I took the stick out, excluded the switches, reset the stick and deleted the zwave interface from the core. Restarted the core, then plugged in the stick, followed the prompts and was able to see it in Automation -> Zwave as node  1. Then included the lights switches, grand total of two, plugged it back into the core, followed the prompt, nothing. I also was not seeing anything in automation -> zwave.

I then restarted the core, the wizard came up again, followed through the prompts. When I checked automation -> zwave, saw the nodes, node 1 being the stick, node 2, one switch and node 3 another. When i checked the status, for the nodes, both node 2 and 3, showed they are lnuxmce  devices and the template number, so that was new and hopeful. Checked under lights and they were listed there, great. Added them to the rooms, reload and regen and it worked

Have attached some pics on ow it looks. Something to note, I have a GE and an Inovelli switch. Both work, but when you click on the node icon, the GE values especially for label switch, says true, the Inovelli that value is false. Listing also attached.


Thanks guys
