Installing Ocelot
« on: April 04, 2010, 08:21:07 pm »
Hi,
I have been using LinuxMCE for a month and been trying to get this working,
i am a complete newbie to LinuxMCE and in creating a GSD with or without Ruby.

From a friend i got this interface: http://www.appdig.com/adicon_new/ocelot.htm
with 2 of these: http://www.appdig.com/adicon_new/bobcat_serial.htm (rs232)
and 1 of these: http://www.appdig.com/adicon_new/secu16ir.htm
and a X10 module connected to the Ocelot

could someone please help me out to get the Ocelot, 3 modules (including IR) and the X10 module completly working.
Or point me in the right direction.
Where and how do i start creating GSD, have been trying a lot.
Would be great if someone helped me with a step by step detailed instruction (dummy style :) )
thanks a lot up front,

IMHO using Ocelot with LinuxMCE is redundant. To control your X10 devices it'll be enough to have PC interface such CM11A or CM15A. Ocelot is too smart to perform their tasks.

Yes you are probaly right, but its the only thing i have and i am not planning on spending money on an other interface so help would be much apriciated.

Kind regards Raymond

Anyway, yes, the Ocelot can do a lot but has a poor interface.
The interface of LinuxMCE is superb, thats another reason for me to get this working.
The overall functions and interface of LMCE is just overwhelming great, thats also why i wish this would work.
