OK - I will give you our feedback - but this will be not sooner than in 1 month - I think. As we have quite big experience with EIB, but none with LinuxMCE, we are organizing Core, Media Directors, etc. for the moment.

in fact who needs devices: you or guigolum ? I mean where to send devices ?

I'd need a power supply (220V/50Hz), retardation coil, a bus conncetor with a FT1.2 rs232 interface and a few devices to test the driver on a test bench setup.
That would allow me to verify the new driver and integrate it into the trunk.

best regards,
Hari

Hi,

where are you located (maybe address you can send me by mail or PM) ? And how long do you think you will need devices ?

i'm pretty busy so some weeks would be great. I won't install the stuff "in the wall", only arrange it on a testbed..

I'll pm you my contact details,

We have a working interface and driver in our test suite... we only have 5 x On/off devices, 2 x dimmer devices and a Thermostat. We are tidying up the integration with Web Admin and then will make it available.

Right now you need to know the port/channel no. for a device so the configuration does not auto-detect the devices on the bus... but if you know the port/channel no. then it works very well indeed. The driver if fully bi-directional so device data is reflected in for example the floorplan when its state changes and you can change the state of that device from the Orbiter.

We will commit this to the public svn over the weekend and do some docs for the Wiki.

All the best

Hi Hari,

No we are not using eibd

Our code was written from scratch because a customer had a requirement for it. So we spent a few days writing it. Its almost all written in shell scripts with a small C app to speed up one function. It works nicely and is easy to support/change.

Anyway it will be up in the svn as soon as Radu has finished documenting it and tidying it up.

All the best

No its not based on eibd - see my response to Hari in this thread.

Well as I explained to Hari this was something we did for a customer project and therefore we needed to build it quickly. Also we wanted to test whether we could build something using shell scripts to extend the system in this way... so we tried it. It took a few days to test/debug. Originally we were not even sure whether we would make it publicly available. So for all those reasons, and probably 10 more, we did it the way we did.

All the best

Andrew

Hi ,

We currently have rs232 & usb working in our test setup. IP would be pretty easy to support too but its not there yet as our customer did not need it.

As soon as we have it ready for the svn I'll post an update here.

All the best

ok, so great news for european community !

guigolum: your work are not useless ! I think making the project based on eibd should be, on a long term, easyest to maintain !

Well I guess so... but that can always happen. It doesn't mean your code is less valuable. We will post our code to the svn and then its up to the community whether they use it or not. We'll keep developing it and if others want to help with that that's great... but if they don't that's ok too.
