Dianemo 10.10 - Use your iOS device as a portable Squeezebox
« Reply #120 on: March 18, 2011, 12:59:11 am »
Although we've been working hard on integrating new UPnP features and capabilities into Dianemo 10.10 we have also been working on other parts of Dianemo too. One area that's still undergoing testing at present is worth reporting on though as you can test this too on your current Dianemo 10.10 system - using your iOS device as a portable Squeezebox :-)

You need the commercial iPeng software installed on your iOS device for the following setup to work by the way (this may change in the future). So go ahead and simply add a Squeezebox device manually to your system in Web Admin in the normal way (ie add a device template #58 as a child of your Core). Now fill in the room/EA fields (ie even though this device is mobile you must allocate it to a free room/EA) and fill in IP & Mac address fields in the template with the values for your iOS device and then do a reload and a full regen of your Orbiters. Thats it basically...now launch iPeng on your iOS device and next set your Orbiter to the room you 'placed' your iOS device in and browse to some audio and play it

Your iOS device will now be receiving the audio stream...since iPeng supports iOS's multitasking feature (you will need iOS 4.2 or later for this to work) the stream will continue even if the device goes into sleep mode or if you 'close' the App. Another thing to test is simultaneous Orbiter control & audio streaming... browse and select the audio from your iOS device itself using the Dianemo iOS Orbiter (make sure iPeng is running first)...the stream will be received in the background by iPeng and you should hear it playing instantly even while your Orbiter is on screen.

Carry you iOS device anywhere within range of your systems WiFi AP and continue to enjoy portable access to your music library. If your iOS devices dock supports audio out then when you dock your device you can hear your stream through any on-dock speakers or connected speakers if you have them.

Enjoy!

All the best


Andrew

Andrew, I'm thinking this would maybe also work with the Logitech Duet controllers?

Hi Rod,

Well we already have support for streams to any 'real' Squeezebox and that includes the Squeezebox Receiver which is the display-less component in the Duet Kit and also of course for Squeezeslaves (ie 'virtual' Squeezeboxes) and now iOS devices running iPeng too.

So yes that would certainly work - we have many customers with Squeezebox Receivers deployed as part of their systems. However currently the Duet controllers themselves are not fully integrated.

All the best

Just checking that you have you seen that firmware (in the last year or so) that on the Duet controllers allows them to appear as just another Squeezebox Receivers, and use their built in speaker for audio playback - that was how I was thinking it might work.

Rod,

We have not tested the Duet in that mode but I can see no reason why that would not work at all - after all virtual Squeezebox's work fine using Squeezeslave and iOS devices running iPeng can also emulate a Squeezebox and be added too.

All the best

Dianemo 10.10 - Now supports Just Add Power's 2G IP transmitters & Receivers
« Reply #125 on: March 24, 2011, 03:58:50 pm »
Dianemo 10.10 now supports the Just Add Power range of 2G HDMI-IP transmitters and receivers. When combined with a managed gigabit switch from CISCO the JAP2G boxes deliver a scalable HDMI video matrix capability that can scale to almost any size required. Because this type of HDMI matrix does not rely on a fixed geometry traditional HDMI Matrix it provides a very flexible solution to distributing HDMI video sources in larger installations.

Technically Dianemo 10.10 uses IGMP to control VLAN's on the CISCO with a VLAN allocated to each JAP2G Transmitter (this is the video source). Dianemo 10.10 then dynamically adds a JAP2G Receiver to the relevant VLAN to enable it to receive the stream being transmitted by that source. Any number of JAP2G Receivers can join a given VLAN and all will receive the stream in sync. All streams are transported over the standard Gigabit CAT5/CAT6 cabling without the need for dedicated cables to be used. If the installation at some future date needs additional TV's to be added its just a matter of plugging in more JAP2G Receivers - same goes for Transmitters too.

Isn't Russia part of Europe? So shipping should be 66GBP, but I am sure Andrew knows for sure.

Thanks for the translation Posde ;-)

However shipping rates to Russia are not the same as for Europe and need to be calculated based on the address.

Well unfortunately no...the shipping rates seem to vary enormously in that part of the world. So we always ask for the shipping address before quoting a shipping cost (we charge shipping at cost)

Yeah...translate.google.com rules! However I do worry about what its spitting out when I use it to translate into another language... have i just told the person 'his brother is a Martian' lol!

What I do not understand is that why not use the virtual squeezeplayer for radio and audio on md's?
It would be so much easier. Is that a good idea, or am I misssing something?

Hi Andrew,
Could I buy just the Dianemo software or licence? I leave in Argentina, I'm using LMCE 0810 (M3NHT-Deluxe as core and 2 x ZotacHD-ID11 as MDs.

Thanks in advance,
HernĂ¡n
