Re: gc100 and rs232 control

ok, I think I've got my ruby commands squared away now, there is still no way to test them from within the template so I am not sure....

is there any way to test device commands?  My template doesn't know I am using the gc100 virtual serial port so I can't test from within the template...

I am getting this in my receiver log file now:

here is an attached image of my connection wizard to show how my pipes are connected...

I thought I remember reading that scenarios should be automatically generated after I've set up all the AV equipment, but nothing like that happened for me. 

I tried manually creating a "verzion" scenario with the objective of have the tv power on and turn to HDMI input, the receiver power on and turn to HDMI 3 input, and the verizon STB powering on... but I have not been able to get anything like that happening.  None of my components respond in any way except for my ability to successfully test IR commands to the TV and verizon STB in the templates where IR codes are defined.  Using that mechanism I am able to make all the things happen to the verizon STB and TV that I want.  As far as the receiver, that is rs232 and I am only able to send it commands successfully via the /usr/pluto/bin/TestSerialPort utility.

My setup includes all of this connected to a gc100, there is no MD. 

Any advice would be appreciated, not sure where to go at this point...

Can you please paste the code output of the GSD from the log? Also, can you paste the contents of command 350?

I just created a new group/codeset instead of attempting to use the existing one for yahama receivers rs232 and editing it....

I've defined the ruby codes for:     On/Off/HDMI1-4/Vol+/Vol-/Mute

I'm hoping that's enough to get going...


I rebooted my LMCE core and I'm still getting an error message for command 350...

command 350 is not defined by me in my new codeset, not sure what is going on...


here is the output of /var/log/pluto/49_Generic_Serial_Device.log

The key error is this:

01   12/11/13 1:02:32.975      GSD Port is not specified. Instantiating non-IO Wrapper. <0xb5dffb40>


This means you don't have either a:

(a) COM Port on PC, or
(b) TCP Port

device data specified in your device template. Since this is an RS232 template, you need at the very least a COM Port on PC device data, along with at least Baud Rate.

odd, for some reason the COM Port on PC on the receiver device got blanked...  I changed it back to the virtual gc100 serial port and things have gotten more interesting....

here is some output after a core reboot, I'm thinking it looks healthy...

I still don't have any autogenerated scenarios, either that or I just don't know how to use/find them

Messages are definitely being sent to and received from my receiver though, I can see them in /var/log/pluto/socat_ttyS_45_0.log

Right now the only devices defined by me are the verizon STB, the receiver, and the tv:  Verizon STB-> HMDI3 of receiver -> HDMI1 of tv

Now if I change the receiver to HDMI2, then turn the TV off, then turn the TV back on, Linuxmce will change the receiver to HDMI3 after the TV powers up.  I'm guessing it does this because HDMI3 is the only input I have in use for the receiver so it assumes I want to use it.

So far turning the TV off and back on using the TV remote control is the only way I have found that makes Linuxmce send any commands to my devices. 

I would like to create a scenario that will turn the TV on if it's off and change it to HDMI1, turn the receiver on if it's off and change it to HDMI3, and power on the verizon STB

And I would like another scenario that turns everything off.

I'm guessing the verizon STB will prove tricky since it does not have discrete on/off commands.  Hopefully that won't prove too annoying...

Should scenarios like these be automatically generated for me?  Does it mean I still have not configured things properly...

On my orbiter I have tried clicking the Entertainment icon, then selecting my entertainment area, then trying to power it on/off and volume up/down, but nothing happens.

At least I do feel like I am making progress :)

Basically, because you don't have a media director in that room, you'll need to make an entertainment area, and manually create scenarios within the Wizard > Media Scenarios section.

I attempted to create two media scenarios called "verizon" and "dvd player".  I am not attempting to control the dvd player in any way, I just want the receiver and tv to respond appropriately.

Choosing either one from my orbiter causes the dce router to reboot and reload my orbiter...

I am happy to post any relevant logs, just let me know what you'd like to see...

Please pastebin your DCE Router log. That is very strange. Also paste your generic serial device log for your gc100.

I had an issue, where when I added my Directv box to a TV in a room, without the room being configured with an MD, it would cause the router to reload, I simple used my sons machine temporarily to create an MD and all worked well after that.

I've got nothing good to use for an MD right now :(

I suppose I could wrangle something up in a day or two if it's my only option

I do have a raspberry pi, but I am not able to get it to boot up as an MD, I am posting in another thread about that....

If I get that working maybe I'll be able to make some better progress
