Another question... who launches the devices? Root? My desktop user?

--> At this point, I send a command from the admin website to device.

Need to implement command #1076 - ChannelUpdate
Parm #264 - Channel=La 2
Parm #286 - Show=Desafio Champions
Checking online users...
generating XML...

It works fine, generates the XML file... but only if I run the device from console, if I let LMCE to running the device himself, doesn't work.

By the way, I'm running Python scripts from the device.

Hi, I have an issue with a device I'm developing. If I run it at this way, I haven't any trouble:

/usr/pluto/bin SmartEPG -d 50

When I send a message to device, is working properly. But, if I reload DCERouter, when I send a message to device, it dies:

========== NEW LOG SECTION ==========
1   04/06/10 18:05:33   50 (spawning-device)   Starting... 6
1   04/06/10 18:05:33   50 (spawning-device)   Found /usr/pluto/bin/SmartEPG
Return code: 139
3   04/06/10 18:06:21   50 (spawning-device)   Device died... count=6/50 dev=50

Anybody knows something about this?

Thanks!  ;)

Thanks to all  :)

Ubuntu announced its 8.10 release almost 18 months ago, on October
30, 2008. As with the earlier releases, Ubuntu committed to ongoing
security and critical fixes for a period of 18 months. The support
period is now nearing its end and Ubuntu 8.10 will reach end of life
on Friday, April 30, 2010. At that time, Ubuntu Security Notices will
no longer include information or updated packages for Ubuntu 8.10.

The supported upgrade path from Ubuntu 8.10 is via Ubuntu 9.04.
Instructions and caveats for the upgrade may be found at Note that upgrades
to version 9.10 and beyond are only supported in multiple steps, via
an upgrade first to 9.04, then to 9.10. Both Ubuntu 9.04 and Ubuntu 9.10
continue to be actively supported with security updates and select
high-impact bug fixes. All announcements of official security updates for
Ubuntu releases are sent to the ubuntu-security-announce mailing list,
information about which may be found at

Since its launch in October 2004 Ubuntu has become one of the most
highly regarded Linux distributions with millions of users in homes,
schools, businesses and governments around the world. Ubuntu is Open
Source software, costs nothing to download, and users are free to
customise or alter their software in order to meet their needs.

Will it affect to the current version of LinuxMCE?

Regards ;)

Not 100% clear on what you are trying to do, but I don't think it needs to be as complicated as that. You may just be able to register for an event.

Yeah, I found the answer this afternoon. The key is the Event handler.

By the way, our project is gonna be like LastFM for TV shows.   :D

Thanks!  ;)

Hi, I'm a newbie in linuxMCE world, and I want to encode a Device that catches the Commands from Xine Player. I read the wiki and forum, but I have a few questions yet:

- Do I need to create a Child Device of Xine Player to catch the Commands?

- To catch the Commands, simply I have to write the code into the stubs of the Commands? For example, writing my code into CMD_StopMedia procedure into MyClass.cpp is going to execute this code when I pause the video in LinuxMCE?

I am asking these questions because we are working with LinuxMCE to realize a project into our university. We have a lot of work to do, but soon as we finish the project, we are going to share it with community.

Thanks!  ;)

Users / Will my computer work with LinuxMCE?

Hi, first of all, sorry for my English.

I need to buy a computer to develop a LinuxMCE based project for my university, and I don't know if this configuration will work properly:

Any suggest?
