Switching inputs automatically could be done but on the TV of course and the Rpi. However the TV has to support it.

As to RAM on Rpi I'm not sure as all ours are 512mb. I've no feedback on which Rpi XBMC Firmware is best.

We have not used UI2 for a longtime so none of our installers customers will have used it. When we still used MM's we decided to used a consistent UI on both MM's and Orbiters and that is UI1 running our Dianemo skin.

All the best

Thom - I understand from Uplink that he has already given you access to his tree and the ticket that relates to these changes... all the changes are there. As to whether they will be useful without additional work I cant say.

Update Available - Fix for Spurious DHCP Requests
« Reply #381 on: November 14, 2013, 05:22:17 pm »
We have released an update today that fixes a long standing and irritating bug that would periodically display spurious Orbiter announcements about new devices having been added to a system. These messages should now only appear when a new IP device is actually added to your system.

This fix was pushed to the LinuxMCE SVN at the same time as this bug has been around since the Pluto days.

As usual please run the Dianemo Software Update script to install this and any pending Dianemo or Ubuntu updates to your NC.

All the best

Andrew

Update Available - SqueezeLite and Support for Spotify
« Reply #382 on: December 05, 2013, 03:18:24 pm »
We have released an update today that adds support for SqueezeLite to Dianemo. SqueezeLite is an alternative to SqueezeSlave (we will continue to support both packages) that supports the Spotifiy plugin too LMS - and that is the main gain you get from choosing it over SqueezeSlave. See the updated 'Adding SqueezeSlave & SqueezeLite Devices' section on the Dianemo Wiki page below for details of configuring SqueezeLites on your system;

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Dianemo_S#Adding_SqueezeSlave_.26_SqueezeLite_Devices

As usual please run the Dianemo Software Update script to install this and any pending Dianemo or Ubuntu updates to your NC.

All the best

Update Available - CM15A Device Template
« Reply #385 on: February 20, 2014, 03:24:39 pm »
We have added a new device template (Template ID 2059) for the CM15A X10 USB interface today. If you use X10 then I think you'll be very interested in this update. Anyone who has contacted me re the CM15A in recent months should also find this update addresses any problems they may have reported.

As usual please run the Updater script to update your system with this update and any others that are waiting to be applied (Dianemo or Ubuntu).

All the best

We have released an update that enables you to add a Vera Lite as your Zwave interface. We support the following Vera models;

You can add a Vera that you may already own, and that has already has been configured, and has Zwave devices included to it and they will automatically be detected and added as Dianemo Zwave devices in the device tree. You can also take a new Vera and configure it from scratch and then add it to your system too. See the Wiki entry below for the steps you need to follow to add a Vera to your system as your Zwave interface;

http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Dianemo_S#Adding_A_Vera_Lite_to_you_System

As usual please run the Updater script to download and install this update and any previous Dianemo or Ubuntu updates your system may not have had installed yet.

Does this mean that LinuxMCE/Dianemo will be able to control Zwave encryption items? Specifically door locks?

In this scenario, does the Vera issue the commands to the ZWave devices or does the Dianemo box.

In this scenario, does the Vera issue the commands to the ZWave devices or does the Dianemo box.

As mentioned on the wiki we currently only support lighting & heating devices from Dianemo via Vera. As far as i know Vera does support Zwave encryption and therefore Zwave locks should work (Please check with Vera to verify that your locks are supported though). If the Vera supports a particular type of ZWave class or type of device then we can support it by adding a new device template in Dianemo. If you need door lock support then we would be happy to add this support if you are willing to help with your time & access to the Zwave Door lock hardware.

All the best
