Users / VOIP Providers
« Last post by B34N on July 11, 2014, 02:39:52 am »
I'm ready to dump Verizon and port my landline number over to a VOIP provider. My current thought is to connect my POTS phones to my ObiHai 202 and also use LMCE. I use my ObiHai with POTS lines and my Google Voice number.

#1 Does anyone have a recommendation on a provider? We are US based (east coast). We need E911 service and we do not make many phone calls. Reliability is more important than cost and considering what we are paying for Verizon, I can't see cost being an issue.

#2 Is there a way to use my POTS phones with LMCE through the ObiHai or some other option. It seems that I would be missing out on the features of Asterisk if I'm using the ObiHai. It's not like I need access to much of Asterisk's options, but it would be nice to have the options.

Thank you,
Users / NAS - FreeNAS, LMCE or something else?

I'm looking for a reliable and easy way to store my data so that I can access it from any of the devices in my home while automatically backing up data. I'm in the process of learning about FreeNAS and I like what I see but I'm having a hard time determining if it's a good fit for me.

In order of priority, this is what I'm looking to do:
Critical Data Storage – I currently have ~30GB of data that I would consider critical and irreplaceable. Normally new content is added rather than changed. I currently use a combination of Dropbox and google drive to protect that data but I would prefer something a bit more seamless.

Replaceable Data Storage – The bulk of my content is recorded TV shows or movies for LMCE. That content is generally removed after consumption. It is not irreplaceable but would be a PITA if lost.

Usenet Download Server – I've recently started using sabnzbd, couchpotato and sickbeard on an old P4. I can see myself digging more into them and expanding into more related applications which are available as FreeNAS plugins. I suspect that if I didn't do FreeNAS that I'd be able to run these applications on my LMCE core. (right?)

I like the RAIDZ2 reliability in FreeNAS but considering my limited needs, it seems like it will be the cost of a FreeNAS box with four matching HDs is significant.

What options should I be looking into?

Thank you,
Installation issues / Re: LMCE 10.04 or 12.04 or 14.04?

I would stay on 10.04 for now.

Please see and

In the future, when it's time to upgrade, I would suggest a clean install and if you have an additional HDD use it and then switch over to it.

If you have issues you can then go back to your 10.04 HDD until the issue can be resolved on your other upgraded OS HDD.

Installation issues / LMCE 10.04 or 12.04 or 14.04?

I'm using 10.04. in my house with a dedicated core and 2 diskless mds. It is used every day and is working with more or less issues and workarounds.

I think 10.04 is not getting updated / bug fixed / improved anymore (is this true?). So I am considering upgrading my whole system. Especially the better zwave environment in 12.04/14.04 is a big reason for upgrading to me and I hope I could get rid of some issues.

I won't upgrade if the 12.04 / 14.04. versions are not suitable for every day use. If they are too buggy an update does not make sense for me. My wife would kill me if she cannot watch tv anymore.  :)

So my questions are:

- What do you think about usability of version 12.04 in a productive every day environment in its actual state?
- how long does it take to update the core and the 2 diskless mds? (Hours? Days?  ;) )
- should I do an update or a clean installation? can I migrate settings (e.g. VDR channels, floorplans, orbiter settings)?

Some more details of my system:

- core and mds are normal PCs (IntelCore2 DUO with Intel Chipsets)
- tv system is vdr with a DVB-S2 card and CI on the core
- zwave home automation with 11 nodes with USB-Stick on the core
- android tablets (qorbiter) and iphones  (dianemo app)  as orbiters

thanks for your replys!

Very surprised as I did not write the code for 10.04, but for 12.04, and it needs to be compiled, anyway.. The Plugin is there, however, the DEVICE that emits the events needs to be written.

Well, qorbiter is your baby, but I know lmce is a team effort.

I can confirm that qt5- version is crashing after the loading screen. I tried updating skins, but no change.
Qt4 works nicely

The default download location for qOrbiter are: latest Qt4 android apk for the Qt5 version for the MacOSX version

Yes, please use these download locations. Sorry for any confusion.

I'll take a look at the file details screen when I get home. I must have bungled something up.

-golgoj4 and its not mine, its the LinuxMCE community's software...i just do a lot of um...tinkering.

I tried downloading from here, which was unsuccessful.
By the way, if that is going to be your primary download-site, could you perhaps edit your first post in the thread? It would make it easier to find. In addition to that, could you also provide a link for the qt5 variant, unless you have reason not to do this at this time.
As for the qorbiter, when selecting a movie for playback, I get only a fileid displayed, instead of movie details....or this this skinning issue?

Anyways, thanks for the opportunity to test your software..always a pleasure.
