Users / LinuxMCE HDMI-CEC control demonstration
« Last post by phenigma on November 30, 2014, 11:01:00 pm »
Hi all, I thought I would share a video that Thom requested showing some HDMI-CEC control using a Pulse-Eight HDMI-CEC adaptor and the integration within LinuxMCE.

I'm not one for narration, so there is none, it makes the video a little boring but it does show what is possible.  What you will see is HDMI-CEC control of the TV/Amplifier and a connected PS4.  At the end you will also see an infrared controlled Xbox360 seamlessly integrated in the same setup.  The control is all performed from a Windows Orbiter but you can use any input device MCE remote, qOrbiter, USB game pad, weborbiter, etc, etc to achieve the same control.  This really demonstrates the flexibility and integration possibilities in the system.

All the same control is possible with a connected Raspberry Pi media director as well.

Enjoy!

Users / Re: Airplayer device as Audio for a room?
« Last post by phenigma on November 30, 2014, 10:52:35 pm »
Hi, The summary of what I cant work out is to be able to use a physical airplay compatible device to stream audio/music for a room, that can be controlled from an orbiter. I read a while ago that it should be possible because of the way the airplay plugin works - data goes to the DCE and gets directed to the airplay devices (scripts) on the MDs. So I figured create a faux "AirPlay Audio Player" and put in the IP and/or Mac of the physical device.

I see that I can only create them under Orbiters, which the room doesn't have. Before I go any further am I wasting my time and completely wrong all together? Can I perhaps use the "AirPlay Audio Player" template as a base for what I want?

Cheers

This would be a great feature request for trac.

I think we need to extend launch manager so it reloads core devices when the dcerouter reloads.  Only children of the onscreen orbiters get reloaded right now. iirc.

hy,

hmm, i have both packages installed.

hybrid:
pluto-vdr Installiert: 2.0.0.46.14081629241
pluto-vdr-plugin Installiert: 2.0.0.46.14101229547

on the md there is just pluto-vdr installed.

I reinstalled pluto-vdr-plugin cause it was not properly installed, deleted the nova-td devices and rebooted...
still nothing.

here is my /etc/default/vdr config:
Code: [Select]
# Change to 1 to enable vdr's init-script
ENABLED=1

# Change this to 1 if you want vdr to be able to shutdown the
# computer
ENABLE_SHUTDOWN=0

# Options that will be passed to vdr's commandline
# for example: OPTIONS="-w 15"
OPTIONS="-w 60"
SVDRP_PORT=6419
VDR_CHARSET_OVERRIDE=UTF-8

I think i messed a little bit with the SVDRP_PORT because vdradmin wouldn`t connect.
Is it okay?

If vdr-sxfe gives you a picture, your dongle is working right, and VDR is working right.

No need for lmcevdr.

pluto-vdr-plugin is needed on the core
pluto-vdr is needed on every MD/hybrid

Make sure those two packages are installed.

Users / [solved] VDR Problem
« Last post by G.I.R. on November 30, 2014, 03:52:49 pm »
Hello,

I am trying to get vdr working on my 12.04 installation.

I switched from mythtv to vdr via the setup wizard.
Whenever i choose TV on any weborbiter the screen(saver) just freezes, but there is no tv.

I can see the remotecontrol on the weborbiter.
I got the streamdev-plugin and vdradmin working.
I even can watch TV when I call vdr-sxfe on the commandline.

My TV-usb-dongle is:

Code: [Select]
15a4:9016 Afatech Technologies, Inc. AF9015 DVB-T USB2.0 stick
I downloaded the firmware and it seems that it is working.
But the dongle  isn`t recognized as a device in linuxmce.

The other dvb-t dongle i tried was a WinTV-Nova-TD dual tuner. But i had problems with i2c read/write errors and it got added multiple times as a device in linuxmce.
(Didn`t delete them until now but i removed the dongle from the hybrid.)

I realized that the lmcevdr package is not installed. And if i try, i get this error message:

Code: [Select]
lmcevdr lässt sich nicht installieren:
Authentifizierungswarnung überstimmt.
dpkg: Fehler beim Bearbeiten von /var/cache/apt/archives/lmcevdr_1.1-10_all.deb (--unpack):

 /var/cache/apt/archives/lmcevdr_1.1-10_all.deb
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)



Do i need this package?

This is the shortened output of /var/log/pluto/169_VDR.log:

Does anybody know where to go from here?
Would be grateful for any hint!

As said before:
Great project! Great work!

Exciting stuff coming soon. namely, easier to update synchronized delivery of UI updates and binaries from the core itself.

Thanks phenigma!

Hi.

You might need to reboot or do "sudo killall ZWave", due to the way the driver works. It's one of those things I've been trying to find a good solution for...
