I created a cable Box device for a Huawei box. When I was creating the Device I choose Cable Box, added the IR codes, etc. I then setup the device to connect to a TV, a Hitachi, set the inputs to the appropriate HDMI ports, reload regen.

When I clicked the Device scenario for the room using the orbitor, it does nothing, throws an error in the DCErouter.log, see below

When I check the Media Scenario, for the Device, it shows up as a Cable Radio, not sure if that the issue. Did a query, and see below.
mysql> select Define, Description,IsExternalTransmission,psc_id,psc_batch from MediaType where PK_MediaType=15;
| Define        | Description | IsExternalTransmission | psc_id | psc_batch |
| np_CableRadio | CableRadio  |                      1 |     12 |      3000 |
1 row in set (0.00 sec)

Shouldn't that show up as a CableBox, instead on CableRadio? Would this contribute to the problems I am having?

Which table or view, has the Device Types listed and could I simple update the value to reflect what a Cable Box should read?

Users / Possible Q Orbitor Issues
« on: December 06, 2018, 02:18:26 am »
Not to sure if this link is still active.

I installed the Q Orbitor available on the core, onto my Andriod Phone, a One Plus 3 and S7. After setting it up, I am unable to see any scenarios, no lights, media options, telecom. When I click on lights, it shows now devices available. The lights are available on the MD orbitor, windows orbitor and the Web Orbitor 2.0. Added a floor plan today, as a just in case.

I have cleared the settings, regen multiple times and re-installed. Even installed it on my kids fire tablet, which is s 7" screen, same issue

Any thoughts?

Users / hdmi cec control player
« on: November 18, 2018, 09:06:03 pm »
Quick question, if you want to control more that one player(hdmi cable box, xbmx, Blu-Ray player) do you add several of the child device below and set the port to each hdmi input device?

Generic HDMI-CEC Player (DT#2305) to control your CEC enabled CD/DVD/Blu-Ray players.


Users / Adding zwave lights
« on: October 22, 2018, 12:28:17 am »
Sometime back, I had a aeotec labs usb stick and used to include my lights via the built in inclusion remote on it.

I have been inactive for sometime,  but re-attempting to add some lights with the new gen 5 stick (Aeotec Z-Stick Gen5), seems I am doing something incorrect , not showing up.

Looking at the following link (, is it now, you should use an inclusion remote?

Is it, you can't used the built in inclusion remote in the stick (Aeotec Z-Stick Gen5) I am using?

Users / Unable to ssh to my pi
« on: January 25, 2016, 01:40:25 am »
Finally got around to creating an MD on one of my pi today, version 2. I assumed all went well, but seem to be unable to ssh to the MD, tried the following see below. Not sure what password it looking for and the key required.

dcerouter_1046790:/var/log/pluto# ssh moon47 -c aes128-ctr
Enter passphrase for key '/usr/pluto/keys/id_dsa_pluto':

root@moon47's password:

root@moon47's password:

Thanks in advance, this currently is my only MD.

Users / Best Approach to Controlling a Network Device
« on: October 16, 2013, 02:14:24 am »
I have a PI running raspbmc, finally figured out some of the JSON RPC code, this afternoon.

Got the TCP connection to work, once, but work, its output is like, no separation for response

{"id":1,"jsonrpc":"2.0","result":"OK"}{ "jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "Input.Down", "id": 1 }
{"id":1,"jsonrpc":"2.0","result":"OK"}{ "jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "Input.Select", "id": 1 }
{"id":1,"jsonrpc":"2.0","result":"OK"}{ "jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "Input.Home", "id": 1 }

Also got the html request to work, also did the right, left, down

Quote{ "jsonrpc": "2.0", "method": "Input.Select", "id": 1 }

Have not tried the websocket option, honestly have not wrapped my head around initiating or using it.

My question is, how best to implement the HTML  feature and if there are any example devices using this?

Would websocket be preferable and any example code.

Suggestions are also welcomed


Users / Remote Codes Issue HT-CT150
« on: October 06, 2013, 02:08:15 pm »

I bought a Sony HT-CT150 sound bar, was on sale.

Created a device and started with learning the IR codes. Unfortunately the learning function on my setup seems to be giving issues, the USBUIRT does not respond. Thus I am like ok, have another one, which I stuck into my laptop, install the windows drivers and downloaded the lrnhelper from the site.

The codes learned fine in lrnhelper, when you test from there also, the device responded, but when I put these codes into the device template, the device does not respond. Lrnhelper is learning the codes in pronto format.

Any ideas or thoughts, I checked the DCEROUTER.log and its sending the correct codes.

Users / Admin Site Issues
« on: September 23, 2013, 07:34:23 pm »
Now I did not mess things up this time, but before going to do a next re-install, have to ask.

My admin site not working as before, for example, under devices, if i click on Orbitors, nothing shows in the right hand window, same for Media directors, actually all links under Devices heading, the links under Basic Info, work though.

Is there a way to fix this, not seeing any generated log under /var/log/pluto or I am looking in the wrong place.

Even did an apt-get update and apt-get upgrade, just in case, no luck

Users / Not switching To Tv and CableBox
« on: September 20, 2013, 04:43:42 am »
I added a tv to a room, which only has a cable box at present. Added the cable box and did the Connection Wizard under AV Equipment, showing how the inputs are connected. Did a reload router and regen orbitors; it asked me.

If I click on the scenario, which shows for the cable box I add for that room, the system seems to do another reload, when done, the WebOrbitor no longer connecting, the tv does not come on, nor inputs switched, nothing happens but what seems like a reload

This is the error I am seeing for that time in the DCERouter.log

I rebuilt the core, just thinking I messed things up and still getting this issue, any pointers.

The scenario for the box shows up as CableRadioDirectv1, did live before install, same issue

Users / New Disks And Options
« on: September 06, 2013, 12:59:22 am »
I have a new disk should I let LNMCE add it and configure?

If I decide to remove and upgrade, plan to mirror that disk, can the added disk be deleted?

Or, should I not let LNMCE manage the disk, add and mount it manually under videos and when I get the second disk and mirror it (have a 4 port raid card that does hardware mirroring), then let LNMCE manage it?

Users / MKV's with mediatomb
« on: August 25, 2013, 01:11:20 am »
I do not want to re-encode my mkv's at this time, as the WD live, supports mkv's. Unfortunately I do not see any MKV's via mediatomb.

I add the following to mediatomb config, reboot the machine,  to see if its helps, but not luck, I still only see avi's

<map from="mkv" to="video/x-matroska"/>

Installation issues / HDMI NO AUDIO GT 430
« on: August 13, 2013, 02:31:51 am »
Just installed 1004, with  GT 430, based on the messages, the nvidia driver installed and the alsa backport drivers, but not getting any audio through the HDMI port; have no on board audio on this board.

If I do aplay -l, I get no audio device.

linuxmce@dcerouter:~$ aplay -l
aplay: device_list:223: no soundcards found...

lspci output below showing the card
