Testing my build now... my grandfather on my father's side passed... so was away for a bit in FL, will post my build source soon for others to test and overview... looking good.


KK.. never really used bookmarks  see it now...  i will make current QUrl value and write it to file /home/public/bookmarks.html  in same format as entries..  is this okay?  It says the file will be over written  is this by firefox?

Heya... Been Feeling very crappy last few days... much better now... sucks being sick on your birthday... printed up template code and was mulling over during my down time since this is my first time digging into mce src... quick question on web bookmarks... Currently i have my device template  setup with Browser Commands...  Goto_Url#1076 #Go_Back#1079 #Go_Forward#1078 #Web_Bookmark#1080... Web_Bookmark is a #193 URL (String) Parameter... and it will take current url ...will adding this bookmark to computing bookmarks menu be taken care by this command later or do i need to do this now.. adding url string somewhere?.. to bookmark storage location ... will be working on this next few days and getting it all down right...

QT is really cool... should be able to do some other cool stuff with this...


Hi All, would like to start trying to contribute more... And learn more about the frameworks and linuxmce┬┤s insides.

So this is what Ive gotten so far... Not sure if im still on the right track but ive gotten the browser down to just that... Not sure where i should go from here?

Code: [Select]
** lmcebrowser beta2 0810  3/15/10

#include <QtGui>
#include "mainwindow.h"

int main(int argc, char * argv[])
    QApplication app(argc, argv);
    MainWindow *browser = new MainWindow;
    return app.exec();


Code: [Select]
** lmcebrowser beta 2 0810

#include <QtGui>
 #include <QtWebKit>
 #include "mainwindow.h"

     progress = 0;

     QFile file;
     jQuery = file.readAll();

     view = new QWebView(this);
     connect(view, SIGNAL(loadFinished(bool)), SLOT(adjustLocation()));
     connect(view, SIGNAL(titleChanged(const QString&)), SLOT(adjustTitle()));
     connect(view, SIGNAL(loadProgress(int)), SLOT(setProgress(int)));
     connect(view, SIGNAL(loadFinished(bool)), SLOT(finishLoading(bool)));


 void MainWindow::adjustTitle()
     if (progress <= 0 || progress >= 100)
         setWindowTitle(QString("%1 (%2%)").arg(view->title()).arg(progress));

 void MainWindow::setProgress(int p)
     progress = p;

 void MainWindow::finishLoading(bool)
     progress = 100;


Code: [Select]
** lmcebrowser 3/15/10

#include <QtGui>

 class QWebView;
 class QLineEdit;

 class MainWindow : public QMainWindow


 protected slots:

     void adjustTitle();
     void setProgress(int p);
     void finishLoading(bool);

     QString jQuery;
     QWebView *view;
     QLineEdit *locationEdit;
     int progress;

Really will load so much faster that other browsers... was a really good idea.... not sure how im supposed to prep this to be able to to be controlled by DCE commands... working on bookmarking now  Am I on the right track?  heres a SS of the browser

Agree with Bill .. Also if your looking to only have plasmas of TV, Projectors, in an area and that's it for hardware... I ran an addition cat 6e  to each Tv... so that I could Send HDMI over Cat 5e 6e,  6e better  works superb for me, if you looking for a central hardware area room for gear... its the way  to go... works with all Av equipment also and Av hdmi switching receivers  ... Ive test almost ever model made .. and ive come to swear by  the "Atlona AT-HD-V40SRS"  You can even get one with a IR reapeter built in...

Mounting Md's behind or around TV's was not an option for me... And if you ever done wire installation you know pro-grade HDMI is a boat load over 30foot.... So HDMI over CAt6e was for me... I'm also sending everything over cat to devices behind tv locations... cat5 to get blue tooth and serial..., gc100's in areas,, etc... I put 2 cat6e and 2 cat5e behind each tv location to cover my bases for upgrades  all back to cat5e and cate63 patch panels

Are you looking to just send 5000$ on Linuxmce hardware... or whole home solution with hardware, receivers, speakers tv's?

5k might get you wired and prepped to setup with a core, freenas, couple MD's, webdt366's and all the trimming to get them going... then it would be replaceing zwave decora's and outlets as you go... get the Wayne dalton thermo's now...

Are you stiill running central cat through house? i would i really really would...

Cause, again like billypoints out with tv's you could blow 5k on speakers...

I have a layered network throughout my place with cat5e and 6e  just moved in last week.. still in setup... but got 2 65's playing 1080 flawlessly... over cat6e and my network gets response from 6e so much faster than 5e...  ... so im happy...

simple one... do i need to use FireWire to FireWire or can it be a FireWire to usb 2.0 cable?

Cool... so since im not using myth TV i could use it to just have myth change channels for the 6412?

Well let me rephrase that... i would like to use myth TV to Only change the channel on my STB   ... Can this be done?

Thanks Emach

Heya Thom, Did you ever implement FireWire for DCT6412?  I currently just got couple of them... and Im not using myth or anything in conjunction.... I have and A/V receivers that switch hdmi video and sound  through a gc-100.... So when i watch media it switches AV to Source1 and for Cable DCT6412 it scenario switches Source 2.....  So I want to just have LiveTV DCT6412   button that lets me use the webdt366 as a remote.... 

Currently I have alot on my 2 GC-100-18R   (or i will)  so being able to control these boxes via  FireWire....Ethernet  would be great ... giving me and extra IR port instead of having to buy another GC100

If not i would like to give it a shot... are there any examples of devices using FireWire?


Obviously  something is afoot with the disk-less creation ... everything is fine till disk less creation  after first is setup  i start to get media director functionality limited report...

After days of trying to correct the issue with install or

for any also having this issue  where you are using the work around of using floorplan to have to play media

what I had to do was

First i have my data on NAS so i terminal into core and check for device for my nas which is 30

Code: [Select]
Lets establish if the standard linkages for media drives are in place. First get the device number of your drive. Now from a terminal session:

# ls -al /mnt/device

You should see a list of disk devices in there that are just a number. One number per device, and one of the should be the number you noted above. For instance if the device number is 30, then....

drwxrwxrwx  root root   0    2009-08-15 20:15  30

The first bit are the permissions and ownership - check these are the same as above. (drwxrwxrwx root root) Now...

Since i know the /mnt/device/30/video/etc  contains all my movies and they are there  and works and ios already mounted on core but not on MD so im good here..

Then after using Wiki for preping for Logging Into Media Directors

Code: [Select]
sudo su -

# ssh moonXX

# cd /mnt/device

is your device there? mines not

# mount /mnt/device/30

I then needed to symlink (i know it a bad idea to mess with... but there are none setup on my MD's so adding basically i played my media that won't work)

I get File Not Found: /home/public/data/other/Windows Share [28]/Videos/movie.avi...

So i move on MD to /home/public/data...

I have no other... i

# Mkdir other

same for Windows Share

# mkdir windows/ Share/ [30]

then finally


# ln -s /mnt/device/30/Video/ /home/public/data/other/Windows\ Share\ \[30\]/


This added my symlinks for my movies and i can now at least manually get MD's with all major functions working i can see


Installation issues / Re: Beta 2 "File not found" MD won't Play Media
« on: January 20, 2010, 06:48:14 am »
Still nothing... Can anyone please explain  how i can setup auto mounter again or run it manually  on mds...   i have everything on my NAS \\00:00:00:00:81:02\Storage   ?


This same this happens to me i see an error during install but everything works nice....  i actually discovery media... but as soon at i createTBZ for diskless creation ....  seems like the ability to discover is gone  as well as my ability to play media on MD directly... which i think are inter related... something in the mount.nfs  to automounter when screwy in install... still working on this...

Nothing is listed...  Ive checked every time I reformat core  i get to this directory listing of folders....{audio  avwizard-sounds  documents  games  pictures  pvr  samples  tts  videos}  and the rest are empty inside  ... This is why flicker saver fades in any out from black showing no images cause nothing in pictures folder... why i have no sound in avwizard no greeeting.mpg or testsound.... etc...  think all my problems will be solved by fixing this ...   well mostly so that i can get basic functionality...

really can't figure out why nothing goes wrong with setup... everything is tested with 0710... when im doing the distro update  i notice a binary that can connect and can connect to one but it has no key  and it says useing older version is that okay?

currently moved into my new house that is entirely wire just for linuxmce ... all zwave sockets, switches, thermostats... 7 MD's addition 8 audio zones.. wedt366/7970 glore, and with the help of tk probably a lot of wall mount POE touchscreen orbiters etc.. tested all with 0710 besides POE... and have the core built in the moving box from condo... got all the MD, sockets switches and thermostats all working on there too....  I just really wanna get 0810 working instead of unpacking the 0710...  To damn stubborn...  but figure i can start throughly testing 0810 with a heavy load of devices etc

Installation issues / Re: Beta 2 "File not found" MD won't Play Media
« on: January 16, 2010, 08:42:07 pm »
Still No Joy... Ive lost count of how many times ive reinstalled...  Im properly setup and Media directors start right up without doing anything...  But MD's stll won't play media from media browser.... 

Ive noticed on the MD... that it gives a Message like: "There are some Devices on this Media Director that did not start.... Functionality ...(cant see rest)  and it has a Ok button.

So i watched more carefully when MD is booting  it goes by fast...

But i can see that 1 thing on start is red Failed...

Right before that failed i wrote down this i saw...

"mount.nfs an incorrect mount option was specified"

then i see something about automounter...  mount none something so fast  [Failed]...

Whats my mount.nfs supposed to look like so i can check it?

Thanks ~emac~

Well I can setup with a javascript and css ... and or tables added to sql to store data for fields zipcode, http streams,  that will allow to setup custom data  like tickers weather... frame for video streams weather news etc... and a frame for maybe Google traffic map or something... Then  it could be tied  into webadmin
