Users / Re: I need your help, to continue fdeveloping.

I do agree with both previous comments here. Thom the few months I have spent in the forums and using the system, I can see you are a very talented developer and that everyone here benefits from your work. I am not opposed to giving donations for a developer to work on a specific task. I donated for the work to be done for the gyration remote and I don't even use that remote but it was my way of giving back to the community and who knows I might use it some day.
There are other features such as Iphone orbiter, orblive like application  (just some ideas)... I would love to see and I would be more than willing to donate for development.
As they say, money doesn't grow on trees and I don't really have much but I don't mind throwing $20-$100 towards something I really use and enjoy such as LinuxMCE. So as Wierdbeird said, if there were some kind of paypal account for donations to be made to the project I am sure that could very well be used to help cover developers time and I am sure quite a few faithfull followers wouldn't mind giving some spare change to help out.

Users / Re: adding z-wave devices

That is the only place where they show. I have looked under devices => lights and Devices => security and there is nothing there. Do I need to add these manually somehow?

Users / adding z-wave devices
« on: May 14, 2009, 01:01:07 am »
I just added a MCV z-wave stick, a intermatic HA06 and a HomePro ZIR000 PIR
The MCV was detected automatically and added as an interface under Linuxmce. I added the other 2 devices to the MCV stick and plugged it. Now all 3 devices are listed under interfaces. The MCV stick is controlled by the core and the other 2 devices show as controlled by zwave.

Now here is my question. I thought that interfaces would be the devices that linuxmce uses to talk to other devices and light switches etc are devices controlled by an interface.
So if I go to wizard, devices interfaces I would see the MCV stick and if I go to wizard, devices lights I would see the HA06.

Did I do something wrong since all of them are showing as interfaces?

Users / X-10 mini transceiver TM751
« on: May 12, 2009, 09:45:29 pm »
Is anyone successfully using an X-10 Transceiver to send commands to X-10 Devices from a remote. Right now I can control lights on my Living room from my media director but I also have X-10 in areas where I don't have a media director to control them from without having to go back and forth. I was thinking about an X-10 remote and a TM751

Any ideas or suggestions?

Hari is the new driver also recommended with the MCV stick?

Users / help with scenarios
« on: May 02, 2009, 04:16:19 am »
I guess I just don't get it but I have checked the wiki for help on scenarios and I still could not figure out how to do the following:
I have created a lighting device (x10) basically on/off. What I want is to start a media file when the on button is pressed and stop it when the off button is pressed or the media file quits playing. I started creating the scenario but then when I add the media to it I don't quite understand the options there.... when it asks for a media string, is it askinf for the path and filename for the media file I want to play?
Sorry if it sounds like a stupid question. I am new to linux and still don't know what I am doing.


Users / Re: ZWave: Best inclusion remote?

Andrew you are right... my bad
I spend so much time on the forums getting help that I was eager to give a little back and help someone that I totally missed that part. When I read the question about setting up the USB dongle without a master controller I totally forgot the original question of what remote to use.


Users / Re: ZWave: Best inclusion remote?

the micasaverde dongle also allows you to add devices without the need of a separate controller. Just take the dongle next to each device and press the connect button on the dongle and the device and then take the dongle back to your core.
I bought one a couple of weeks ago and I believe it was around $65. Once I plugged it in, Linuxmce automatically detected it and installed.
I only have 1 motion sensor attached to it so haven't done much testing. I will be getting a couple wall switches this weekend and can do some additional testing and report on my findings.

Hope this helps...

I vote yes... $20 sounds about right for the app store. At that price I would probably purchase 2, 1 for my iphone and 1 for my son's I-touch

dlewis... will be more than happy to add a wiki with all the steps I took.

I do have one more question on this subject... now that I have an extension and I get dial tone... should I not be able to dial extension 200 (the core)? I am not able to dial back and forth between these 2 extensions. Am I supposed to do anything else within freepbx?

Well...I am not sure what I did but it is working now. I cleared the status messages and restarted the pgone and it assign me extension 201 and I do get dial tone now.
I will create a softphone extension to test

OK, My bad... I assumed that the MAC address of my device was already include in the provided range. I went ahead and added the range of MAC addresses, restarted the DCE router and plugged the phone back in. The system found my phone and installed. However the phone still shows unprovisioned.
I did see one change on the phone's screen. On the top right hand corner, where it says SIP, now it says 201SIP but the phone is still unprovisioned.
I went into settings and picked option 5 for status, then option 1 for status messages and got the same result as before W210 TFTP error: Not found SIPDefault.cnf

Has anybody experienced this? Does free pbx create this file automatically? or am I supposed to create it manually?
I was assuming that the 201 in front of SIP was the extension but I really don't know. I tried calling it but no luck.

Any ideas?

I decided to have a second attempt at installing my Cisco 7960 with Linuxmce. I tried this in November with no success, I gave up and now I am going to try again. Unfortunately it is failing again.
I loaded a SIP image to the phone per some recommendation I got on the forum last time. I followed the steps on the WIKI for the Cisco 7970 with the few exceptions for 7960. The part for the MAC address range I skept becasue those fields were already filled when I picked the device template for the 7960.
I have a 7.10 32 bit installation. I have not done anything on the telecom portion of LinuxMCE so this is the very first phone to be installed.
I plugged the phone and it went through the normal steps of booting:
Configuring VLAN
Configuring IP
Requesting Configuration
Phone unprovisioned

If I look at the log on the phone itself this is what I see:

Status Messages
W350 unprovisioned proxy-backup
W351 unprovisioned proxy-emergency
W362 No valid Line Names provisioned
W210 TFTP Error: Not found SIPDefault.cnf
W220 TFTP Error: Not found SIP000DBC261A3A.cnf

Firmware Version
Application Load ID  P0S3-08-9-00
Boot Load ID PC030301
DSP Load ID 4.0(2.0)[A0]

The phone gets an IP and information for router, tftp, and so on but it seems like it is looking for 2 files on the tftp server and not finding them. Is the system supposed to create those files for me or do I need to create them and save them in the tftp directory? Reading on the forums and documentation I've found I am not supposed to do that but I am beggining to wonder.

Any thoughts?

Users / Re: First attempt at X10
« on: April 14, 2009, 07:59:38 pm »
I figured out the problem....
Like I said when I started the post, I am new to X10 as well as Linux. Well I had the CM11A connected to a power strip.
Later on I read on a forum that some power strips (the better quality ones) filter X10 signals as noise on the line.
I made sure that both the CM11A ( or its RCA counterpart I should say) and the Lamp module were plugged in directly to a power outlet (no poer strips) and it worked like a charm.

Pretty excited about this. I promised my son I would try to set up the Party Button (for those who have seen the video from some MIT kids and their automated room with a party button) with our LinuxMCE system and this is a start.

Thanks a million for your help.

OK, I just found something that might be relevant... Seth you mentioned to check under interfaces for the CM11A and see if it shows registered which it does. I now went under lights where I added the lamp module as a light switch on/off and went to advanced and this device does not show as registered.
Would this mean I did not add this device properly?
