Users / ReceiveData failed error
« on: September 16, 2010, 05:30:09 pm »
since I installed 810 a few month ago, I have been trying to get my monitor to turn off automatically on one of my MDs. I have installed the DPMS_Monitor device, but nothing was happening.

When looking at the logs of the DPMS_Monitor device on my MD, it shows the device properly starting, but never receiving any commands.

I then tried to manually sending an "off" command to the device DPMS_Monitor, using the web admin. Here is what the DCERouter logs show when I do that:

08   09/16/10 8:27:16.738      Received Message from 0 (unknown / ) to 164 (DPMS Monitor / Master Bathroom), type 1 id 193 Command:Off, retry none, parameters: <0x467f1b70>

05   09/16/10 8:27:16.796      Router::RemoveAndDeleteSocket 0x824e03f8 -1003 <0x467f1b70>

At the same time, the DPMS_Monitor device logs on the MD don't show anything, so the device has not received any commands.

I do not now how to further troubleshoot from here. Obviously the log is telling us that there is some problem, but I do not know what it means.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thank you!


Users / Re: Sending multiple infrared commands
« on: July 25, 2010, 08:36:01 pm »

this Panasonic projector doesn't have discrete on/off commands, and there is just one toggle on/off button on the remote.
However when you turn it off, it asks for confirmation so you can pretty much get discrete behavior by using:

For on: ON/OFF + BACK
For off: ON/OFF + ENTER

And this works just fine indeed with my method using Ruby.

Unfortunately LMCE will only let me learn one single command/keypress per event.


Users / Sending multiple infrared commands
« on: July 24, 2010, 05:32:16 am »

I am creating a new device template for a Panasonic projector. In order to turn on (or off), this projector needs to receive 2 distinct infrared commands (with a small pause in between).
I was able to set this up in Ruby by sending a system command to the USB UIRT device with the first command, followed by a pause, followed by the second command, but this is very dirty since the ID of the USB UIRT device needs to be hard coded in the template.

Is there a way to do this cleanly by using the normal section for infrared codes in a device template? (Or any other suggestions)


Installation issues / 0810 64 bit support
« on: May 03, 2010, 10:42:57 pm »

I am currently running LMCE 0710 on a xen virtual machine. In order for PCI passthrough to work under xen, I need to run the VM as a PV, which means that I need to use 64 bits because my host is 64 bits.

Now my question: is there any way to install the current LMCE 0810 onto a 64 bit Kubuntu? What would happen for example if would install a brand new Kubuntu system with 64 bits, then install the LMCE packages onto it?
Alternatively, are there any plans to make a 64 bit version of LMCE 0810 available?

Thank you!


Users / Re: Webdt not connecting
« on: January 27, 2010, 06:34:22 am »
If this still doesn't work, I had a problem on 2 out of my 5 webdt where the built in Cisco wireless card seemingly became defective after a while, and would not get an IP address anymore via DHCP. When trying from the webdt terminal window "ifdown eth0" and then "ifup eth0" I could see the interface requesting an IP via DHCP, but never getting one assigned (and that DHCP request packet wasn't making it to the LMCE core.
I had to buy a replacement Cisco wireless card and physically replace the card (located below the antenna of the webdt) for it to connect again.

this did not work for me (I did it several time during the progress bar that appears while booting the tablet). Maybe I wasn't doing it at the right time? However in your other thread I saw you recommended ctrl + t, followed by c, once ratpoison is started, and that worked.

does anyone know how to access a console on a WebDT with Padorbiter, using a keyboard on the WebDT itself?

Normally I would connect remotely via SSH, but now my WebDTs don't connect to the wireless network anymore (my fault, new router using "wep transitionnal". It works 1 time out of 20 tries, so it must be somehow fixable) and I would like to access a console for further troubleshooting.

Display 8 (CTRL+ALT+8) has lost of debug information, but it still won't let me access a console prompt, neither does display 1.

Any ideas?

did any of you find how to turn off the backlight of the LCD screen on these, when the orbiter goes dark?
I have had no luck with "xset dpms off" (backlight stays on). I'm wondering if this has to do with the video driver or if there is something else I could try?

I have several of these in my house now, but most of them get used rarely. It seems like a waste of power to have the backlight on 24/7. Also I have 2 of them in bedrooms, and the backlight is quite distracting in a dark room...

If someone knows  a command to turn off the backlisght, I could see if I could tie it to one of the buttons..

I just picked up a bunch of WebDT 366 to replace my Fujitsu touchpads. The WebDTs are much thinner, silent (no harddrive) and look sleek on i removed the rugged plastic edges!

In case any of you is as stupid as me and running the core with a different subnet than 192.168.80.x, then in order to get this to work you need to connect your tablet to the wifi network, then login via SSH using root/root, then edit the file /etc/hosts and replace with the IP of your core, then reboot the tablet.

Thank you Thom for this great solution. I always knew it was wrong to run my orbiters under Windows CE on my Fujitsu tablets!


Users / Re: Changing the directory for MythTV recordings
« on: April 24, 2009, 07:32:25 am »
Hi guys,
I'm pretty sure I had this working with symbolic links, as it was pointing to a network share which was terribly slow and HD became unwatchable. I then setup the exact same scenario as you are talking about, one small drive for linux, and a big one just for Myth recordings but it seems that I am using mount and munting the drive directly at the tv_shows1 directory.

 My mount shows this:
/dev/sdb1 on /home/public/data/videos/tv_shows_1 type ext3 (rw,data=ordered)
And my fstab has this line in it:
/dev/sdb1 /home/public/data/videos/tv_shows_1   ext3

This is working perfectly for over 6 months and being used daily with mutiple concurrent recordings in HD.

Sorry I can't help more with the symlinks, but because I don't have it setup like that anymore, I can't compare what's different in what I was doing. I am not 100% sure if I tested the symlink solution accross reboot, since I only had that running for a few days, going to a network share, then I got the second drive and set it up by mounting it as explained above.

I hope this helps.


Developers / Re: Java/ J2ME mobile orbiter
« on: March 29, 2009, 12:38:44 am »

thanks for the quick reply. I'm running this on windows mobile. There is no java installed by default, so I have to install my own Java VM first.
Thanks to your advice I have now used an IBM MIDP 2.0 Java Emulator 2.3 from here instead of Esmertec, and the JavaMO now starts, but dies with "Can't access JSR082". I understand that this is now about bluetooth access and will read the other posts in this thread that talk about this error to learn more.

Can this JavaMO also be used over IP (wlan or data service on the phone), as opposed to bluetooth? If so would there be any way to get past this bluetooth problem if one does not intend to use the MO via bluetooth anyway?

If anyone knows other VMs (in the form of a CAB file) where the JavaMO runs on windows mobile, please share. At least I guess we demonstrated that the JavaMO does not like Esmertec VMs.

I am trying to run sambuca's JavaMO 0.2.0 on a Samsung Omnia i910 running Windows Mobile 6.1 and using an Esmertec 20080912.5.1 VM.

I am getting the error:
the MIDlet could not be instantiated

Any tips? Is it a VM issue, and if so, which version of Esmertec's VM has this been confirmed working with?

Not sure if this is supposed to give a different output or not. moon250 is one of my MDs with bluetooth, and 260 is the ID of the bluetooth device on that MD. Maybe this helps to determine the problem?

Users / Bluetooth not detecting devices anymore
« on: March 15, 2009, 07:30:46 pm »

I am using 2 MSI Media Live MD with internal bluetooth. In the past this was working right out of the box, my old cellphone was detected as soon as I installed the MDs, and it was added to the system as a device (however the cellphone wasn't supported so I could never use it as an Orbiter).
Now I have a new cellphone using Windows Mobile which I would like to add to the system. After putting the cellphone into discoverable mode and waiting and reloading and waiting and waiting some more, nothing happens.
I notice that may cellphone is able to see the 2 MDs via Bluetooth, so I know the Bluetooth radios are working, however LinuxMCE does not see to detect the phone.
I noticed under the Device Tree that both Bluetooth objects in both MDs have a checkmark in "disable" and Registered=no. When I remove the checkmark and reload the router, the 2 dongles will show as registered=yes for a few seconds after the reload, then the checkmark appears again in "disabled", and the status changes to "registered=no".

Does anyone know if my bluetooth devices under the device tree are supposed to be "registered" for this to work (I would assume so), and if so, any ideas as to why mine don't register anymore?



PS: just in case my new cellphone had a problem, I deleted the device for my old cellphone and the system won't rediscover that one either


glad to hear that it's working as intended. If you press "1" in top it will show you each core in the upper left corner and you;re completely correct that dshowserver is able to take advantage of all cores and share the load.

It would be nice if your "make clean" would help others, as it's a shame that very few are able to get this to work, when it's a good solution.
