You said you can not integrate business lines. It is my understanding that the UI allows you to configure multiple phone lines under linuxMCE and select which phones to ring. How is that different from configuring a business line?
Currently a second line requires manual intervention

Question though since I do have a fair amount of asterisk experience.
We gladly accept patches.
I don't understand what the advantage of the network based tuners is. As I understand it the linuxMCE system automatically shares video feeds from various sources, so having an internal card in your Core would share that feed throughout the house already.
Certainly not required but gives two tuners great picture and no slots or cpu cycles on the core (Enabling the use of an ATOM box as a core)
Also I have never had a problem with linux and an Intel chipset. Every intel GMA based mobo I have used has worked all but perfectly out of the box, and all sources I can find have not complained of intel compatibility. Is this something specific to LinuxMCE or is this a specific chipset you are referring to?
Yes its specific to the Lmce UI2
In addition the ION based units support video acceleration without it ATOM based fail miserably with HD video.
What I dont understand though, is how specifically it integrates with LinuxMCE. Is it all controlled off the orbiter,
Basically yes but depending on the MFG for instance (Very Expensive but very nice) Vizia Rf from leviton has Scene and Zone controllers which are very handy at the foyer to hit an all light out button. But lmce has various ways of handling this as well. Including timed events and blue-tooth detection/ drop.
