First question: Have you followed the wiki instructions for setting up the multi-sensors properly in 1204?

Thanks for the info Andrew!  I will disagree with you on one statement though:

This is only possible with our underlying media system.

This is *very* possible in LinuxMCE, with a built in UPnP server.  I understand that your implementation will only work with your Dianemo systems though.

Thanks again!

Good news!  For the info screen I click on the title and the window goes away.  It's a little finicky I've found, and I've only got it working in Firefox, never had it work in chrome.

BDs can only play locally due to how AACS is implemented in conjunction with the drive, as apposed to DVD where CSS protection is only on the disc.  A ripping method is being investigated/worked on.  There are some hurdles to overcome for it to be useful though.

I put the bd-drive in my server, popped a disk in...and it plays. Then I thought of trying it on my me...went to manage drives, clicked on my Ford's drive to play....no dice. So that means this works only if the md in question has a be-drive too.

I can't see anything obviously wrong with this HP's spec in light of what your planning to do with your system. The only thing I'd say, and I always highlight this, is the acid test of compatibility will be whether the system will boot from a Ubuntu 12.04LTS LiveCD (I would expect it would). If it does your good to go.

Enjoy!

All the best

Users / ZWave sensor values ??
« Last post by rebelkiller on January 16, 2015, 03:22:43 pm »
Hello all together,

I have three multisensor devices (two Fibaro FGMS and one Aeon multisensor) working in lmce 12.04. In the ZWave-log you can see that they are reporting motion, luminance, humidity (Aeon) and temperature as expected. But at the moment only temperature and motion detection finds its way into webadmin device's "state".

I want to use the values as event criteria, so I need them e.g. as "state" in lmce devices.

What needs to done to get this working?

Thanks for your hints!

Dear All!  Minimote was the solution for adding nodes.
Step by Step:
1. Reset Controller as per wiki page
2. In my case, pull the stick and join the minimote the normal way (press on the minimote the Join button, blue led starts flashing, then press the add node on the stick and they do their flashing led show letting you know that the connection was properly.  Get the stick back in.
3. Router reload.  If it says that the controller is not responding. Kill the zwave app that it eating 100% cpu and Router reload!.
4.  Go to the closest light switch and add it with the MINIMOTE, by pressing the + button.  Press the paddle of the light switch, wait for a steady blue led on the minimote and and pay attention on any of the orbiters.  If not, just give it some time and to a.
5. Router Reload, on the router reload you will see that a zwave item was found and it ill install it.  There will  be nothing else.  Either you go to the setup link under any orbiter or via webmin to set up the type of light you have and on which room it belongs.

You dont have to do lights one by one.  I decided for testing purpose only to do at least 3 and test them using the webadmin/ wizard/ lights and on and off to make sure.
Later I added them in groups for a total of 10 right now.  A mix of dimmers, single switch and multiswitch.
.
Problem faced:  After adding all the switches, the light are unresponsive!.  I guess I'm facing a zwave network issue.  I try to go to the advance zwave page but consistently a layer is set with one of the nodes that does not allow me to see the page, I cant find the way to make that ge switch window to go away .  See picture attached
I would like to see how the nodes are connected, maybe the routes are not correct.  See that there is one of the nodes that is not responding.

Cheers,
T

I wonder if anyone has any thoughts on this?

My core got taken out by a lightning strike recently and as I wait, hoping for a positive insurance assessment, I'm happily planning its replacement.

Since my core is headless and runs in the server closet this seems like a great little machine. The primary issue is that it has practically no expansion slots.... however I don't plan on adding any tv-tuners or other cards. I still use my system mostly for media and if I do get into the automation side I imagine I'll work via networked adapters.

What seems to be nice about this machine-

  • Compact Size - basically 24cm x 24cm x 24cm
  • Dual onboard network cards
  • Onboard intel HD graphics - intel graphics seems to be working ok with LMCE at the moment and really it's just needed while setting up before making it headless
  • Low power proc - the G1610T celeron processor has TDP of only 35w which is great for a server running 24/7
  • 4 SATA bays - for your media drives
  • Optical bay for blu-ray / dvd drive

Any thoughts on this would be most welcome. I'll post more if I buy the sucker.

I'd love to put an SSD in as the O/S drive to speed up boots of media directors but that's a bit of a scene apparently because the 4 SATA bays require a special adapter for 2.5" drives to align the connectors and if you plug into the ODD instead, apparently the BIOS won't let you boot from there. Some have added a PCI SATA controller to get around this.

Check what module is needed for that controller, and if maybe that specific controller has a known issue with a specific kernel version used by 1204. Maybe you need to add some specific startup parameters on the kernel load line.
