Users / My thermostat template died
« on: July 30, 2013, 08:33:28 pm »
So, I've got a 3M50 thermostat and I wrote and submitted a template for it. Approved and applied. It looks good. Well, I just had to wipe out my machine (painful story involving our local power company) and all of my little devices around the house are popping up and populating themselves nicely with the DHCP detection. I so love that!

Now, here is the problem. All of the commands exist in the table InfraredGroup_Command with FK_InfraredGroup=6097 and the template exists in DeviceTemplate as PK_DeviceTemplate=2254 but here comes the problem: It has FK_InfraredGroup=6096 and the InfraredGroup table has neither 6096 nor 6097. I do believe that this is originally my fault as I think I made a bad SqlCVS submission when I originally submitted this. In any case, I'm clueless how to proceed. Should I manually create the entry in InfraredGroup and get everything tied together properly and submit that? Or is there a better way?


Users / DCERouter Delay and Orbiter vs. QOrbiter
« on: June 26, 2013, 09:36:14 pm »
So, I was reading the various issues with the delay in the forums so that I could put in a delay on a Scenario. So, it fails from a normal orbiter but works fine from QOrbiter. The delay is completely skipped when executing from any orbiter except the QOrbiter. It looks like these events are going through two different code paths and one seems to work better than the other. I would like to attempt to fix this if I can. If somebody can point me in the right direction, I'll do what I can. I've been trying to get past just device development and into core coding for a while but I have yet to get everything going so I'm going to try to figure this out. Thanks!

Developers / New Ruby editor
« on: May 07, 2013, 08:28:03 pm »
So, I was trying to work with Ruby to write drivers for my components at home only to discover that the Ruby editor is, well, horrible. I fixed it so that it resizes to your window size and worked with that until I discovered the actual editor didn't work properly and I replaced it with ACE. I attached files to ticket #1752 if someone wants to put that into the repository or play around with it themselves.

I also used a CDN to source my Javascript for fewer attached files but if those files should be included, then I'll pull those and attach them as well. Let me know.

Developers / New climate device now a Denon
« on: April 19, 2013, 02:05:46 am »
I created a new climate device, checked it in, and have been using it for quite some time now. I realized that I had forgotten something in one of the modes ("off") and went to go fix it. I made my change and saved. Now it dropped all the configuration and then reloaded it all as a Denon receiver. Um, what? I went and reverted in sqlCVS and no change. Now I hit reload and all my code is gone and loading up as a Denon receiver. All I was doing was trying to turn off my fan.

Help please!

Developers / Added new thermostat device
« on: April 09, 2013, 03:12:58 am »
Hi, I added a new thermostat device as ticket #1751 and my SqlCVS checkin failed again (seems to be the norm on this box). I just checked in a moment ago and I have no checkin numbers. Could somebody please apply my checkin? Thanks!

Users / [SOLVED]New drive not showing up
« on: March 08, 2013, 09:13:02 pm »
My system crashed and I'm starting over with a new drive. I added a new extra drive for storage in my core and I think I may have hit "Ignore this device every time" on it since I had a slew of those notifications because it detected every non-MD system on the network and attempted adding all their drives too at the same time. So, I'm pretty sure it is my fault. Anyone know how to un-ignore this device? I looked in the MySQL tables and nothing stood out at me and I didn't find anything in the interface.  If not, how do I best add this device?


Users / gethostbyname2 for '', failed
« on: July 18, 2012, 10:54:14 pm »
So, I ran an update, bad things happened. Oddities formed. One such thing is this:

Code: [Select]
01      07/18/12 11:19:10.588           gethostbyname2 for '', failed, Last Error Code 3, Device: 1 <0xb78546d0>
05      07/18/12 11:19:10.588           void ClientSocket::Disconnect() on this socket: 0x860dc98 (m_Socket: 5) <0xb78546d0>
05      07/18/12 11:19:10.588           ClientSocket::Connect() not successful <0xb78546d0>

Any time I update sqlCVS, i get the preceding error.

Installation issues / ZWave installation problems
« on: May 17, 2012, 08:23:36 pm »
Here is the hardware:
  • Aeon Labs Z-Stick
  • GE 45601 Remote Control
  • GE 45606 Dimmer
  • GE 45613 3-Way dimmer

This is running on an up to date 1004 installation

Here are the devices it created:

     ZWave Embedded Climate Interfa
     ZWave Embedded Security Interf
     ZWave Controller

I cannot seem to figure out how to get the lights (and probably the remote control) to register properly together. My remote control can easily connect to the lights but I can't seem to figure out how to get it the lights and control to work with the stick using the instructions in the wiki. I've reset everything multiple times, deleted devices, plugged and unplugged the USB, etc. and have yet to figure out how to get the networks to talk to each other. I'm sure I'm missing some stupidly simple step but this is my first foray into ZWave.

I can register the lights to the Z-Stick and then plug that into the computer but I can't seem to figure out how to get the remote associated.  :'(

Developers / RESTful device
« on: March 30, 2012, 01:22:15 am »
Has anyone added a network device with a RESTful interface before? My thermostat has just that and I'm trying to write the integration drivers. It would be nice to just use Ruby commands like other devices. Thanks!

Developers / New Onkyo device
« on: July 18, 2011, 07:06:32 pm »
So, I recently picked up a new Onkyo receiver that has an Ethernet port instead of the serial. This makes it much easier to hook up to my LinuxMCE system but I now need to create the new device and I have two questions.

First, how can I copy the old device to a new one? All the same items apply and I was hoping to shortcut things a little bit.

Second, it appears that the same connection type can be used since it supports both serial and network connections but how do I send binary data? The string values are the same but there is a bunch of header/footer information that needs sent in a binary format.


Users / 1004 dependency problems
« on: July 18, 2011, 06:57:55 pm »

I'm testing out 1004 (on a clean install) and found a couple dependency problems. So far php-pear was not installed, which broke the weborbiter and, just recently, I upgraded and pluto-proxy-orbiter ( now depends upon an older version of bluez-utils because the newest version doesn't provide /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf nor /etc/init.d/bluez-utils. It looks like bluez now includes /etc/init.d/bluetooth and I have yet to find what provides /etc/bluetooth/hcid.conf or it's replacement. I'll keep digging and see what else I can find. If anyone already knows the fix (or it has been fixed) let me know.

I'm guessing the php-pear dependency just needs tacked onto the requirements for pluto-website-admin.

Developers / Hulu desktop app for Linux released
« on: October 09, 2009, 06:20:20 pm »
With the release of the Hulu desktop app at, does anyone have any ideas how (or if) there is an integration path for this?

The application comes in a deb for Ubuntu 32 or 64 and depends on:
  • GTK+ 2.12 or higher
  • GLib 2.16 or higher
  • LIRC 0.8.2 or higher

It has support for lirc and a settings file for keymaps, etc. so there might be some kind of hope for it.

Users / DCERouter fails to start
« on: August 20, 2009, 07:38:46 am »
My system crashed over the weekend and I rebooted it. Now a bunch of things are not working when it boots up. I had this happen before on the older version (7 series) and that is when I switched over to the 8.10 alpha. I am completely up to date on everything.

If I run "/usr/pluto/bin/" then it starts manually, but I am sure that is not the only thing broken as any client on the network now has no Internet access. DNS works, but packets do not route through the core machine.

I just reinstalled a ton of packages (basically pluto-*) and rebooted a few times. I don't even know what logs to look at. Oh and my UUID for one of my drives got changed so it wouldn't auto-mount. I updated the database and it started working, but only after I created /mnt/device.

Basically I had a craptacular weekend. Any help as to where to start looking? I really don't feel like wiping the system out and starting over again. I will, but I'd rather understand what is going on than just blindly wipe my disk.

Users / Gyration GYR3101 stopped working
« on: August 18, 2009, 04:07:15 pm »
After all the wonderful work Thom did, my remote was working perfectly. I rebuilt my media director over the weekend (just clicked the button that said rebuild) and the buttons are no longer all working. Forward, rewind, etc. work but not Power, Play, nor Pause. I haven't been able to test all the buttons yet, but I could not get those important ones to work.

Any help in trying to diagnose this?
