Feature requests & roadmap / Re: Alexa and amazon echo skill
« on: October 14, 2016, 11:19:21 pm »
Hi all,

The amazon echo has final made it way to the UK and I'm excited to get my hands on one, just wondering if anyone had looked in to adding a Linuxmce skill to control basic home automation like lights and heating ect, it seems like someone has created a skill for our slightly common sister vera but it annoyingly connects via there in house web interface so even though the code has familiar terminology like Device Ids ect it just wont simply port over.

the amazon alexa system looks simple enough at creating a skill using node.js the issue i have is just trying to think of the best way of implementing a secure external api type interface so that the external amazon alexa voice service can send and receive commands to our internal DCErouter.

Just thought id put it out there and see if anyone had looked into this or had any ideas of the best way of implementing a solution.


Whats your development skillset?
I was looking into creating some interfaces for this, but it needs to be a 2 part system.
  • Simple http interface for doing the initial security handshake. google has some nice code for doing this, i did it successfully in my tests. It would need to be handled per cloud service: Alexa, Smartthings, google, iftt, etc
  • A proper http api exposing proper endpoints for these things to communicate.

i have been working on work and an xbmc device so ive been busy. but if you are serious, we can attack this problem and get something basic like light control going.

Ok.... im a bit at a loss for why its not working. Bear with me if my questions seem stupid.

*Are there scenarios under media?
*If there are, do they not respond when clicked?
*What happens when you change rooms?

ok, I opened a new thread for the auto-tagger.
Qorbiter on my second device is still not working. I cannot browse any kind of media. I did as you suggested. I downloaded the latest build I can get my grubby hands on. I uninstalled the old one from the phone, installed the new one. Upon opening I select the proper device, but I don't get any media presented. The rest seems to work. Having my tablet and my phone set to TV-Set and starting VDR, both are properly synchronised.

One other thing I came across checking the youtube-videos. I had asked you before about the built-in mediaplayer. I just wanted to check this again, but I cannot select "This Device" anymore. Right now I can switch between the areas in the house, but thats it.

Did you also 'clear settings' in the advanced screen?

Okay, it seems to run, but whatever it does, is probably not what it should do.
Just for the fun of it, I created an empty logfile to see, if perhaps something will show up there, but I only succeeded in not getting the access denied. It did not tag any files nor wrote anything in the log.
I watched this: several times in total wonder and amazement...but its not working on my side.
Shall I created a ticket?

Yes, something is broken for sure after running it from my machine as well.

very nice this a new build? if so, where I can download it from? I just updated my linuxsystem, but other than new kernel, I didn't see anything for qorbiter.
Since you also went to TV-Shows, I found the way you selected the episodes very interesting. I admit, it has been a while since I looked into that section, but I will try. Before I always had trouble finding the proper episode other than in fileview.


The tv shows in my db have been run through the auto-tagger, so they have metadata which allows browsing using the tv filter.

It connects but like I media is being the problem I had before...maybe there is still some old config snag on that phone

I would install the latest build (i believe its been built) and then go to the advanced screen -> settings, and hit 'clear settings'. then exit and reopen it.

Am i right to assume, that every phone or Tablet needs its own qorbiter device?
Right now i have a tablet and an android phone, each got their own device. The tablet is working nicely, the phone not so much...i cannot browse any media and subsequently not play anything using that phone.

Yes, each device should have its own qorbiter device.

What happens with the phone? It just doesn't connect?


Installation issues / Re: Philips Hue on 1404
« on: August 01, 2016, 10:10:51 pm »
Hello To all,

This is a follow up.  I found the issue.  I added in my Multiple tests the the IP where it says on web admin "Server IP", this must have to left empty!.  It Added 3 times the bulbs, I think because this was the times I tried to download.  The first 2 sets did not respond to any commands  so I removed them.
Result!.  Philips Hue Working on 1404!.



Good to know!

Thanks Golgoj. Excellent.  One question, how about the skin.  On your video posted, I saw that it looks different than mine.  Is there a preferred skin or theme?  Can it be changed?

The other thing is that I haven't figure out yet why i´m not able to control my denon volume using the qorbiter.  With te web orbiter is perfect! and as Phenigma mentioned, it shouldn't be related, but In my case it does, not sure why!
Ill Keep testing and reporting along.  So far everything else on my Samsung S6 works ok!.  Great job!!!

I dont know if this is out of bound but is it possible to add support to the qorbiter app for using the Bluetooth? Thinking that with the BT, the media director with BT dongle will "sense" that you are in that room and trigger some rules? like changing automatically to that room or follow you or whatever rule you could think off...... maybe this is better for a wish list post !!! hahahahaha ;D ;D.  Ill drop this idea elsewhere!!! hahahahah... I can already hear the..... get focus!!!! ahahahah.


The UI shifts some depending on what type of device you have. There are variations for large, medium, and small screens. I am working on allowing the user to change it, but its currently selected for you based on the screen size of your device. to posde. Im not allowed to touch it or something.

as far as I understood it, that was just my radical behaviour.
to update qorbiter, you uninstall it from your mobile device, reboot, perhaps delete the linuxmce-folder, if it still exist. download the fresh build and install it.
no need to muck around with the qorbiter device in webadmin.

You shouldnt need to remove it from your device. It should install over the existing version. No need to delete folders as the settings are now stored using and non user exposed settings system (the android settings system that your other apps use).

No need to delete existing qorbiter from your linuxmce install.
No need to delete the existing qorbiter from your android device

The qorbiter installation package (apk) that linuxmce releases has a different release key from the one in the Google Play store. This means it wont let you install from the webadmin and then try to update from google play, and vice versa. This is really a rare case but i thought i would mention it.

Unbelievable ....its working now...I cleared the settings and the device Id.
Nice software...silly user

Not necessarily. I just fixed a bug i discovered where the device ID wasnt being properly cleared when you hit clear settings. So it may have been my fault :)

Happy you are up and running again!
