I am in the middle of making a GSD-device for my Ocelot and a few device templates for my AV-gear (tv, receiver, cable box)
and have a few questions.
for my ocelot i use a usb to serial adapter must i still use the serial hack (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Serial_Hack
or is setting the comport to: /dev/ttyUSB0 sufficient?
in the plug & play section of the gsd-device how do i get the MAC-adress, where can i find it?
my approach for the GSD-ocelot-device:
i learn every ir-code i need in the ocelot, giving a device 50 memory locations.
i only use #384 Process Receive Command for Child field, in here i wrote a Ruby program that generates a serial-command that the Ocelot understands.
to generate this command i use:
- device_.childdevices_[cmd.devidto_].devdata_ to get the port-number, which i assign to the port-number of my Ocelot.
- cmd.id_ to get the command (http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Command_Table
) fired within LinuxMCE to calculate the stored ir-position (wich one from the 50 of 1 device) in the Ocelot.
- cmd.devidto_ to get the device to determine if i must be in location 52, 102, 152 etc (every 50 is a deferent device).
my assumption was that when i add AV-devices it automatically generates a 'remote' in UI1 on a orbiter, so if i would press Move Up on a orbiter (which is cmd.id 200) my ruby-prog would pickup this signal and send the appropriate command to the Ocelot.
But there are no 'remotes' generated.
am i seeing things wrong? or did i forget to configure something?
in the AV-device section what comport must i use?
