Dianemo Athena UI & Orbiter Preview - Updated Released
« Reply #450 on: March 05, 2015, 05:10:20 pm »
This update fixes a number of small bugs, fixes some layout issues in the UI and now supports Kmotion too. If you have configured Kmotion security cameras in Web Admin your new Athena Orbiter will display a 'Cameras' button in the top bar for any rooms you have elected to make them accessible in.

Please run the Updater script as usual to install this update and any un-installed Ubuntu updates too.

All the best

Great update Andrew,  and all working as expected with Web Browsers and iPad app.

Is is a large update though, and even on FTTC internet connection and fast hardware, it took something like 30mins to complete the update.
(my last update was ~7 days ago)

Thanks. Glad your enjoying the new Orbiter's.

Strange that your download took that long. I've had no other reports of that from other users. I wonder if your update contained a lot standard Ubuntu updates too?

I'll post more of these images as we debug both the App and the Responsive Athena UI Skin for iPhone.

Dianemo Athena UI & iPhone Orbiter Preview
« Reply #455 on: March 19, 2015, 10:24:15 am »
I've posted some more early UI screens from testing we are currently doing with Beta builds of the new iPhone iOS App. This time I have two new images of the new responsive screen layout for the Sky TV STB Remote screens (this is a very popular European STB/PVR for accessing the Satellite based Sky TV service).. On smartphones with < 5" screens we implement a swipe left/right gesture to allow the user to navigate to all the screens related to this device. In most cases there are two screens. Swiping between the two is fast and a familiar gesture for phone UI's. In these screens we are testing the best size/scaling of the screen elements (all graphics are svg's so they can be scaled in real-time to any size required by the device the UI is rendered on). Note these screens and the others I have posted are still not finished and contain some layout errors - see the status area at the bottom of these screens for example.

Update Available - Insteon
« Reply #459 on: April 30, 2015, 02:27:45 pm »
We now support the Insteon PLM-2413U and any devices it supports in Dianemo - a much requested update. If you have an existing set of devices added to your PLM-2413U then they will be detected and automatically imported into the Dianemo device tree as child devices of the PLM. The device template is #1932.

Insteon devices are fully compatible with the new Athena Orbiter and UI.

Please run the updater script as usual to update your system.

All the best

Dianemo Revealed - Adding Internet Radio Stations Presets to Athena UI
« Reply #460 on: April 30, 2015, 02:54:09 pm »
Hi all,

Below I have described how easy it is to add Radio Station Favourites (ie Presets) to Dianemo's Athena UI. Add as many as you like, complete with the stations official icon, and in Athena these changes are available in your Orbiters immediately without needing a Regen or a Reload too.

Adding Radio Station Favourites to your Dianemo system;

From Web Admin use the menus to select the following; Advanced->Configuration->Slim Server

You will now see the Logitech Media Server (LMS) main configuration page. Simply follow the steps below to add as many Radio Stations Favourites to the Athena Radio screen as you like. These Radio Favourites will appear in any Room or Entertainment Area that has audio capability (you will see a Radio icon in the Orbiters Icon bar);

- Firstly click on the triangle next to 'My Radio'
- Next use the icons that displayed beneath the triangle to find the station you want to add as a favourite
- Tip - 'World' is useful for international stations
- Keep drilling down until you find the station you are looking for, then hover you mouse pointer over its name. You will see some icons appear to the right of the station name, when you hover over it - click the 'Heart' icon to make that station a Favourite (you will see a '-' will appear on the icon after you click it to indicate that if you click on it a second time it will be removed from your Favourites)
- Now click on the triangle next to 'Favourites' and you should see all your currently saved Favourites (*Note to remove a Favourite you need to find it again under 'My Radio' as described above*).

Now if you go back to any Orbiter and choose a Room with audio capability you will see the Radio icon in the top bar. Click on Radio in the top bar and you will see your Favourites listed as station icons with names. Select any Station Icon and it will play in the Room you currently have selected in your Orbiter - you will also see information about the current show being broadcast, including the currently playing track and DJ etc (this information is dependent on the station selected - not all stations provide this information), and there will be audio volume controls displayed at the bottom of the screen in the controls bar.

You can switch rooms without interrupting the music playback, and can start streams playing in other rooms or entertainment areas too.

Enjoy!

All the best

Andy

Dianemo X86 14.04LTS now supports Airplay Audio from your iOS devices to any Squeeze audio zone. This is a truly great update for anyone with iPhones, iPad's or who wants to stream Airplay audio directly from iTunes too.

Simply open any iOS music App, play some music, then select the Airplay icon and you will see a popup list of all your Airplay 'speakers' (these are all of your Squeeze based audio zones on your system). Choose an Airplay speaker and your music will stream to that zone from your iOS device.

Other than making sure your Dianemo audio zones have a volume level set there is no need to even use an Orbiter to have Airplay music streams work. This is perfect for guests, or anyone, who is un-familiar with your Dianemo system as they simply need to know how to use Airplay for this to be accessible to them.

Tip; Your iOS devices need to be on the Dianemo LAN side Wifi network for Airplay Audio to work.

See here for an earlier post on this new Dianemo X86 14.04LTS feature;
