I'm afraid SettingsManager wasn't designed for that. Generally I
*expect* you would want to copy server.prefs to the new system and make
any relevant changes, but I've normally just started with clean
installations in such scenarios.

You should see a DenonSerial settings group on each player settings web
page. Please let me know if you have trouble - I run LMS 7.8 and have
not tried 7.9 yet. It seems likely you may need to compile the Perl
serial module code if you're using direct serial and running LMS on
something other than Windows - I switched years ago to the TCP
connection, using a Raspberry Pi as a serial port server.

Yes, it is. You can use DenonSerial to turn the amp on with the

something else to control amp power, and use DenonSerial primarily for

 But I didn't find that list anywhere.

FWIW PlayLog allows you to mark individual files in the list and copy

2014-03-01 Thread peterw

tamanaco wrote: 
 gharris, thanks for your reply... Is the code above for long press sleep
 or just for a short press sleep?

IIRC, all Squeezebox IR remotes except for (some? all?) Boom remotes use
the same scheme, and that is, keep sending the same IR code as long as
the user is holding the button down. LMS has logic to treat the press as
short if the player stops relaying IR code info to LMS fairly soon
after the first code is sent. 

Some (all?) Boom remotes used a scheme whereby they'd send a
button-specific IR code when the button was first pressed, and then for
as long as the button continued to be pressed, they'd send a different
IR code. That second IR code was the same for all buttons, and
essentially was meant to tell Boom+LMS that the user hadn't stopped
pressing the button yet. Technically, I think this ditto IR code
(which I think was an industry standard) required less energy because it
was shorter in length (fewer pulses of light), and therefore looked like
a smart idea for a small remote with an expensive, disposable battery. I
think Logi/SlimDevices at some point started building the Boom remotes
to use the old school (non-ditto) behavior.

Physical buttons on Boom (and Squeezebox Receiver) are treated
differently -- the player sends LMS indication of both the button being
pressed (down) and the button being released (up). AFAIK there's no
way to trigger those messages with an IR code sent to the player's IR
receiver.

 ... Anyway, I tried teaching the long press sleep command to my Harmony
 Smart Control and it didn't work because, as I was told, newer Harmony
 remotes have no raw learn capability. I'm trying to work with Logitech
 (Harmony) support to see if they can add this command to the profile for
 that device.

1) Really, a Harmony remote that can't learn? Sounds crazy.
2) Are there multiple Squeezebox devices in the Harmony database? Since
all devices starting with at least the Squeezebox 1 support the same
codes, you could try another device. (IIRC, the SliMP3 player responded
to codes registered to another company, likely the JVC brand DVD codes
that are also generally supported on older players by LMS out of the
box. You could look at the .map and .ir files for LMS, but I don't
believe LMS recognizes a JVC sleep code.)
3) If you can't customize a Harmony remote, take a look at the world of
JP1 programmable remotes. One For All used to have nice options, but it
looks like nowadays many people resort to reprogramming Comcast's set
top box remote controls since they're cheap, plentiful, and apparently
support JP1 programming. In a couple of my rooms I've been using OFA JP1
remotes for years, with very good results.
4) For use with LMS, you might be able to program the Harmony remote to
send some other recognizabled IR code (one of those JVC DVD codes would
be good) and modify the .map (?) file for LMS to have it treated as a
sleep button. Sorry, my memory is really fuzzy here. But basically the
old IP3K players like Boom recognize most IR codes (but not all, like
they don't understand Denon's) and will relay info to LMS for most IR
codes. So it's likely you can use the .map/.ir files to have LMS
recognize a non-Squeezebox IR code as a sleep IR code.

Good luck.

 Is there an easy way of telling the plugin not to ask the status for a

What command exactly is failing? Is it sending *Z2?* to get the status

I'd need to add an option to disable such queries, possibly on a
per-Squeezebox/player basis. This means that LMS won't see the Denon
volume change if you use the Denon knob, etc., to change that volume,
but it sounds like that's unavoidable anyway.

OK, thanks. I'll have to learn how to pull that code, then. 

Meanwhile 0.1.39 is in my test repo, with WOL yanked and slightly better
code for detecting stuck queues. On my system it detects hung queues at
least daily, but I won't know if it's really working unless I'm able to
go a couple months without problems (it's detecting trouble far more
often than I actually experienced problems; maybe that should worry me).
Still, you might try that with the TCP support until I get the code
updated to find its directory and successfully dynamically load the

Good luck. I just pushed my latest code up to my testing repository
(http://www.tux.org/~peterw/slim/slim7/repodata-test.xml) if you want to
give it a try -- includes both the full-dB code for zones 2+ and my new
code that attempts to detect  clear hung queues (gives the amp 10s to
respond to the last sent command before obliterating its queue). Neither
of those is really tested (my queue hasn't hung since I added that
code). If the hung queue detection tries to do something, you'll see a
log entry like no response seen from amp in at least 10, clearing its
items from queue (yes, I forgot to add seconds to that message). Also
0.1.38 has code to deal with garbage characters that I'm now seeing,
probably (hopefully) introduced by my Pi+USB serial adapter.

Thanks for pointing out the wake module problem -- I had started working

SBS/LMS generally doesn't have rights to forge low-level packets
anyway.

I'm disappointed that at 15:17:17 my code isn't detecting the wedged
queue.

And that's just crazy behavior from your amp IMO. My old 23xx series amp
is perfectly happy to tell me its power, volume, and source input when
it's in standby mode. Can DenonSerial turn the amp back on right after
turning it off? I could understand not replying if you manually pushed
the hard power button on the amp, but not when DenonSerial uses the
control API to put the amp in soft standby mode!

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] DenonSerial plugin thread

2013-08-01 Thread peterw

I have the same trouble occasionally -- the plugin doesn't see the
expected response and its queue gets hung. Restarting SBS/LMS fixes it.
I've been meaning to add code to detect  clear hung queues, but haven't
gotten around to it -- probably because this only happens to me once
every 6-8 weeks. That's with TCP connections to a Raspberry Pi acting as
a serial port server (as described in my edited first post for this
thread). Prior to the Pi, I was using $ software on an Atom nettop
running Windows 7. The queue hung noticeably more frequently with that
setup. My Denon is an old one that has RS232 but no Ethernet (looks like
pretty much all the current CI receivers have Ethernet now) -- so I
can't test the native Denon networking interface. I suspect anyone with
Ethernet on a Denon would be better off with Chris' AVP Control plugin,
as it uses HTTP and is probably much less likely to have such trouble.

I'll certainly post here if/when I get hung queue code that I think
should work.

Sorry for the delayed reply. 1) are the player settings for audio /
volume control set as fixed at 100%? 2) under server settings /
Logging, set plugin.DenonSerial at DEBUG and then change the volume and
see what is logged. Ideally you'd see something like

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Kidsplay: extend for Touch (IR)?

2012-02-26 Thread peterw

cncb;691617 Wrote: 
 Is there any way that Kidsplay could be extended for the Touch?  From
 what I understand and my testing the Touch does not recognize JVC DVD
 commands so that is not available.  What I had in mind is to respond to
 the 6 preset commands issued from a remote control as well as maybe
 holding down on remote number buttons.  I looked into the Kidsplay code
 and don't know how to react to these infrared commands from the Touch.

You're probably better off focusing on the SqueezePlay code that runs
on Touch -- on patching it so that Touch treats those codes
differently. With its 100% server/LMS focus, KidsPlay is at a real
disadvantage for Touch and Radio. First, those devices will often take
some local action that KidsPlay, at best, can reverse. For instance,
Radio's preset buttons would turn the device on and then send a command
to LMS. Anyone who wanted his Radio to remain in its old power state
when a preset button triggered a KidsPlay action was out of luck.
Second, since the local behavior can change w/ new firmware releases,
it's a hassle to make server-side KP know what it might need to do.

Good luck.

Nope. You may be able to use the old IR Blaster with such a setup. Take
a look at http://wiki.slimdevices.com/index.php/IRBlasterDirectLink

If you upgraded to an SB Touch, bought a $10 USB-to-RS232 cable, and
used something like the the 'socat utitilty'
(http://www.dest-unreach.org/socat/) to turn the Touch into a
TCP/Serial server, you should also be able to use my plugin, and
probably Aesculus' too.

The RS232 and native TCP/Ethernet interfaces that are used by
DenonSerial and Denon AVP Control offer a huge advantage over the Denon
IR interface, as the RS232 and Ethernet interfaces allow our plugins to
set exact volumes and determine the Denon's volume. The IR interface is
one-way (SBS, plugins, and applets can't determine how loud the amp
already is) and crude -- all you can send are Volume Up and Volume Down
commands (and some sort of Mute command -- serial/TCP allow discrete
Mute On and Mute Off, but I don't know about Denon's IR codes).

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Announce: Denon AVP Control Plugin

2011-02-23 Thread peterw

I don't know what features you need -- Chris' plugin is more advanced
than mine -- but if you can stand only having power and volume sync,
you might be able to use my DenonSerial for one amp and Chris' plugin
for the other [I'd probably switch to Chris' plugin but I'm too lazy to
add 1) my logic for respecting IR volume commands when my SB3 is off
and 2) integrating with my custom MusicInfoScr saver that displays the
volume in terms of the Denon's gain level]. DenonSerial should work
fine with two different amps with two different IP addresses, though I
haven't tested that. Myself, I just use it with a single amp that gets
an IP address only by virtue of software running on an HTPC connected
to its RS232 port.

Good luck.

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Amp RS232 plugin

2011-01-23 Thread peterw

If you don't use MySqueezebox.com, then the events are pretty easy to
trap in Squeezebox Server plugins. You might even simply be able to use
my DenonSerial plugin in subscribe mode and have your applet subscribe
to the messages DenonSerial sends. E.G. when the amp needs to come on,
DenonSerial will send a message indicating that PWON needs to be
sent; when the amp should go off, DenonSerial indicates PWSTANDBY.

Would you mind sharing your code? I had always intended/hoped to write
an applet companion for DenonSerial that would leverage DenonSerial's
subscribe model to allow a cheap Prolific or FTDI serial adapter to
connect a Touch to an amp, but never got around to it...

Are your remote connections just web/stream.mp3? If so, use an Apache

the Apache layer. Or set up a VPN. Your SBS will be at risk for certain
types of attacks (esp. DNS rebinding), but so far I don't think anybody

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Help getting PowerCenter working again after 7.5.1 u/g

2010-09-04 Thread peterw

mustbemad;574255 Wrote: 
 I had to take the server down for some electricity work this morning 
 I'm back in a stuck state :(

Sorry to hear it.

 Logging the Powercenter plugin at debug level shows the commands
 executing but returning status code 0 and phsyically I get no
 switching.
 
 If I run the commands from the console they seem to execute OK, but
 again, I get no switching.

So this may be a general problem with powerline commands. Have you
plugged in any new electrical devices lately? Moved any circuits (e.g.
so that your amp and CM11A are on different sides of your breaker
box)?

 I had noticed that I needed previously to run chmod a+rw /dev/ttyS0 on
 server startup to get things working again, though there were no
 permissions errors in the logs I could see, but nothing has been
 changed as far as I'm aware since the power cycle this morning - prior
 to which it was all working fine.

You should get a does not exist or is not usable error from
PowerCenter if the permissions were not right.

 If I check the running processes, there is an entry for heyu_relay thats
 seems to hang about - is this correct or is it hanging for some reason?

That sounds right. 

 Any more ideas of where to look?

I'd start with trying to get heyu working outside PowerCenter/SBS. It
sounds like you may have general problems sending commands, which could
be a device causing interference (I have to put filters on all my
UPSes), trouble with your CM11A, or something else. Not very fun, I
know.

Chris, if you're using port 23 and *not* the HTTP/Web interface, why is
HTTP:// there?

Yes, exactly. So what's the HTTP:// in that log (and your comment
#35) for? I wonder if the network libs changed in 7.5 and no longer
like having that (extraneous and misleading?) phrase.

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Announce: Denon AVP Control Plugin

2010-08-15 Thread peterw

riemers;569212 Wrote: 
 You mean udp of some sort?

No, it's TCP. I stand corrected on Chris' plugin -- despite the http
string, it looks like his plugin is also using the text-based simple
telnet interface -- connect to TCP port 23 and each side exchanges
strings terminated by carriage returns. (I should look at that code
again -- are you using perl Async http libraries to get async TCP
responses? That would be awesome.) So I understand -- my Denon has
rs232 but not Ethernet, and I've only used telnet by way of a laptop
connected to the rs232 port and running serial port server software
to allow TCP connections to the rs232 port. It seems very odd that your
amp only listens for http (obvious from its responses) and not the
simple telnet protocol. Are you sure there's no firewall or packet
filter in the way? BTW, telnet's not a very good choice for interactive
debugging the Denons b/c the use of simple carroage returns without line
feeds means in apps like Hyperterminal and minicom you just see the same
line overwritten again and again.

Aesculus;569306 Wrote: 
 Peter: I am using PERL async libraries that someone pointed me to years
 ago. Don't get too excited from the Denon point of view because it
 seems to have problems working in the async world.  It likes someone to
 grab the interface and stick to it from what I can see. So I constantly
 run into problems overrunning it with multiple requests, even when I
 wait a 1/2 second or more between requests. Still trying to figure that
 one out.

Hmm, guess no great reason to switch, then. I'm wrestling the same
problems with RS232 -- and for my gear I think I've ended up with
pretty good default timing, including when I use a network serial port
server (app) to make my amp accessible via TCP port 23. My favorite
part is that it seems the amp queues up informational messages if the
user uses the amp buttons or IR to make changes, so sometimes you'll
issue a command that should result in 4 response lines but instead
you'll get 10. My notes are in my code:

Code:

my $minTimeBetweenCommands = 0.1;   # delay after getting a response 
(seconds)
  my $responseDelay = 0.15;   # wait this long after command before 
expecting response (seconds)
  my $maxSerialWait = 0.25;   # wait this long after serial command 
before giving up (seconds)
  # (also wait for ($numberOfResponseLinesReceived * $maxSerialAdditionalWait)
  # MV?, PW?, and SI? all tend to return in  0.10 secs
  # CV? often takes about 0.39 sec, but we don't issue that command
  my $maxSerialAdditionalWait = 0.09; # after one response, treat a delay 
this long as indication that response is done (seconds)
  # (worst I've seen with a 2310CI amp is about 0.05 sec)



Denon's protocol is much better than some other's -- but maybe this is
what Sean Adams should be working on now, a good network-capable amp
with a stable, modern, multithreaded control interface. :-)

Port 23 is the telnet port. Denon AVP Control uses the web port -- take
the :23 out of your address and try again. My DenonSerial plugin uses
the telnet port, but Chris' Denon AVP Control is more feature-rich, and
almost certainly a better choice if you have an Ethernet-equipped Denon.

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Help getting PowerCenter working again after 7.5.1 u/g

2010-08-11 Thread peterw

My first guess is that the problem is due to the change in Unix
usernames. 7.3 was SqueezeCenter, but 7.5 is Squeezebox Server. I don't
run the packaged versions of the software (and in fact still run 7.3 in
production, though I have 7.4, 7.5, and 7.6 on my test/dev system), but
did the Unix user account that's used for SBS change from
'squeezecenter' to 'squeezeboxserver' or something? I expect you have a
heyu/heyu_relay process still running with the old SC 7.3 user, and
that's preventing the SBS 7.5 user account from sending commands
properly. Your device permissions are probably fine, or PowerCenter
would have complained about that. 

The fix should be as simple as stopping/killing any running
heyu/heyu_relay processes so that the next time PowerCenter needs to
invoke it, it will start a heyu_relay process running as the new SBS
user account.

Really? Logitech has consistently said onebrowser intially only

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Kidsplay - Radio max. kidsplayvolume not applicable

2010-06-15 Thread peterw

doubleugk;554870 Wrote: 
 I've set the kidsplayvolume max. value to 50, but it has no effect on
 the SBR. Is there any other setting that I need to consider to achive

The max  min only apply to the kidsplayvolume CLI command. For
instance if you set Preset #1 to decrease the volume with
kidsplayvolume -5 and Preset #2 to increase the volume with
kidsplayvolume +5, then pressing either of those buttons would never
result in a volume outside the KidsPlay min/max range (increasing if
needed to reach the min and decreasing if needed to stay under the
max). 

The KidsPlay min  max don't apply to changes made with Radio's volume
knob. If you want to set a maximum volume that applies to the knob, you
can mostly do that with VolumeLock. VolumeLock doesn't completely
prevent Radio being turned too loud with the knobs on Radio or an IR
remote pointed at Radio, but if someone turns the volume above the
VolumeLock max, VolumeLock will pretty quickly turn the volume back
down to your max setting.

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] IR Blaster - Source Selection?

2010-06-10 Thread peterw

Jayhawk;553944 Wrote: 
 
 Scenario: Source inputs to HK amp are SB3 and another AVR.  HK is
 driving speakers at an outdoor hottub.  The hottub is outdoors with a
 picture window looking into the FamilyRm that has a large flatpanel on
 wall (so can watch TV from the hottub).  Want to use Duet Controller
 from the hottub to switch hottub speakers between SB3 music source and
 AVR/TV audio so can hear TV audio instead of SB3 audio when watching TV
 from the hottub.
 
 Is there a way to get IRBlaster to react to another Duet Controller
 button?

IIRC, IR Blaster provides CLI commands for sending IR codes, so I'd
suggest something like an SBS plugin that provides a
Jive/Controller/Squeezeplay interface for changing sources. Select a
source from this new menu on Controller and your new plugin would
execute IR Blaster CLI commands to send commands to the HK. You could
also write this as an applet running on Controller, using Lua code on
Controller to send the IR Blaster CLI command via Comet. I think a
plugin makes more sense (an applet by default would show the choice
even if you were using MySqueezebox.com, in which case it wouldn't
work), but the biggest issue is probably whether you'd rather write
Perl or Lua code.

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] IR Blaster - Source Selection?

2010-05-29 Thread peterw

Jayhawk;551479 Wrote: 
 Using duet controller and SB3 receiver.  From what I've read, it appears
 that IR Blaster is intended to send only power on/off and vol up/dwn
 commands.  I need to send a source selection cmd to the AVR.
 
 1. Is it possible to have IR Blaster provide a way to send more
 commands than the 4 commands indicated?

You may need to unpack the source (the .par file is basically a .zip
file) and modify it. In lib/Plugins/IRBlaster/Settings.pm there's this
line

Code:

my $gMaxItemsPerAction  = 5;# IR commands per action 
(on/off/volup/voldown) in webinterface


I think I changed that years ago when first setting up IR Blaster and
needing to send more commands, and it did the trick. I'm pretty sure IR
Blaster is happy to send any commands that are in the LIRC files. 

Alternately, you can probably shut down SBS and edit
prefs/plugin/irblaster.prefs by hand (the _command, _remote, _count,
and _delay values).

Once you have things set up, you can probably switch back to the
official IR Blaster release.

 This sounds great!  I'm amazed at how little interest there seems to be
 in apps like this and IR Blaster.  IMO, the SB receiver would be an
 ideal unit to hide away in a closet with an integrated amp or receiver
 but is a non-starter since it has no equivalent functionality to IR
 blaster.  With the requirement to purchase a Global Cache or Sena unit
 AND a SB Touch, I start to question whether the cost is worth it. 
 Replacing the GC-100 or Sena with the SB Touch plus USB to serial
 adapter is a big step in the right direction.

I think there is a fair amount of interest in these sort of extensions
-- Logitech staff have even admitted publicly that omitting IR Blasting
capability from Receiver was a mistake. (But I don't know how to
reconcile that with Touch repeating the mistake; maybe they're really
embarcing Apple's 80% design mantra.)

I've been looking again at Lua coroutine information, and it really
looks like it shouldn't be too hard to make it work, at least for
DenonSerial -- I just have to overcome the inertia of having not yet
written an applet. 

I think it would also be very cool to offer something for Touch that
would turn Touch into a replacement for a Sena LS-100 -- that is,
something that would act as a TCP-to-serial bridge and not care what
sort of RS232 device was connected; unfortunately it looks like that
would need to be a standalone application and not merely a Squeezebox
applet, due to the design of the Lua network socket APIs. Since
Logitech doesn't include the standard Lua interpreter on Touch, it
would need to nbe compiled code, and I've never much liked setting up
cross-compiling environments (and have enjoyed taking a break from C
and C++ code).

Finally, it would be cool to have a 100% applet version of DenonSerial
so Touch would retain control over the amp even if using its internal
server or MySqueezebox.com. But I haven't been terribly motivated
because I don't need those sorts of things myself.

No sweat. Adding the extra commands was easy; that's now in 0.1.36.
Hard to argue with the price of that Onkyo, but, man, I'm so happy with

 You mention the Sena LS110 to provide RS-232 control when the SB server

 the Global Cache products, such as the GC-100 would also work?

I hadn't heard of them before, but I think so. Looks like you'd just
need to set up the GC-100 to use 9600 bps 8N1 for the serial port and
tell DenonSerial to use a host like 10.1.2.3:4999 (port 4999 being the
TCP/IP port for the first GC-100 serial port). Please let me know how
it goes if you try this. If you ave trouble, please set the Squeezebox
Server plugin.DenonSerial logging level to DEBUG and show me what it
says when you try changing the Squeezebox volume.

 Does your Denon Serial plugin similarly allow multiple control events

Currently, no. How user-friendly would you need this to be? Wouold it
be acceptable to have text-fields in the web settings for extra RS232
commands when the SB is turned on or off where you'd enter things like
*Z2MUON; SIDVD; MUOFF* to mute zone 2, switch the input to DVD, and
un-mute the main zone? (These commands are from the Denon RS232
documentation.)

For over a year now I've meant to develop a Touch applet that would let
you use a $10 USB-to-serial adapter so Touch itself could relay these
commands to the Denon serial port (instead of something like the GC-100
or Sena boxes), but I haven't gotten around to it.

Also search here for SqueezeCLIHandler, a plugin I just released in my

containing commands. You'll probably want to apply my patch for bug
16188 to make it work well. And you'll need to figure out how to make
privileged commands like shutdown work, since SBS does not run as

[SlimDevices: Plugins] How to install 3rd-party plugins for SB Touch's Squeezebox Server instance

2010-04-16 Thread peterw

Note: this isn't supported by Logitech, and won't survive firmware
updates. Also some plugins won't work -- some won't load in Touch's SBS
instance because they assume the Web UI will be available and blindly
try to call APIs that aren't available on Touch; others may have
architectural dependencies (for instance, my DenonSerial plugin on
Linux requires a compiled version of the Device::SerialPort Perl
module, and does not bundle a copy compiled for the Touch/ARM
architecture). Many plugins, especially older plugins, cannot be fully
configured without the Web interface. 

Also, there is *very* little free RAM on Touch -- the device only has
128 MB of RAM, and I've seen it use about 115-125 MB to run the
built-in Squeezebox Server instance alongside the normal Touch player
software. Some plugins might need more than the 5-10 MB of unallocated
RAM that is available on Touch. Push it too far and Touch will
crash/reboot. There doesn't seem to be any easy way to create a
page/swap file to give you some breathing room (at the expense of
performance). If you really want an ultra-lower power, compact server,
you're probably better off with a SheevaPlug -- since about half of
Touch's memory is need for the player software (jive and jive-alsa) and
SheevaPlug has twice the installed RAM, it should be a much better
server platform. Caveat hacker.

What you'll need:

- 'Squeezebox Touch'
  
(http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002LARRDA?ie=UTF8tag=petesstuf-20linkCode=as2camp=1789creative=390957creativeASIN=B002LARRDA)
  (note:  Amazon affiliate code shamelessly embedded in URL)
- A computer for copying the plugin to Touch.
- For that computer, an SCP client program like WinSCP for Windows
- For that computer, a Telnet client (Windows, Mac, Linux all include
  command-line Telnet clients)
  

What to do:

- Download the plugin's zip file. If the author hasn't provided an
  easy way to find the link, you may need to examine some Squeezebox
  Server repository XML files. Logitech hosts a few on
  MySqueezebox.com: 'Logitech extensions'
  (http://test.mysqueezebox.com/public/plugins/logitech.xml),
  'Recommended extensions'
  (http://test.mysqueezebox.com/public/plugins/repository.xml), and
  'Other 3rd-party extensions'
  (http://test.mysqueezebox.com/public/plugins/other.xml). Here's the
  XML for my current VolumeLock plugin (the latest version of the first
  plugin I ever wrote, finishing it before I even received my
  Squeezebox):

Code:

plugin name=VolumeLock creator=Watkins, Peter 
email=pet...@tux.org 
link=http://www.tux.org/~peterw/slim/VolumeLock.html; maxTarget=7.* 
minTarget=7.0 sha=144a84253a1e1dc7b97b06bc80cc7d831c0542e7

url=http://www.tux.org/~peterw/slim/slim7/VolumeLock/VolumeLock-2.1.15.zip; 
version=2.1.15
changes lang=EN
2.1.15: fixed volume  unmuting in 7.4/Radio; 2.1.14: more 7.4 fixes, new 
approach for Radio and Touch; 2.1.12: initial fixes for 7.4, but do NOT try to 
lock or cap the volume of a Touch or Radio (or Controller)!
/changes
desc lang=EN
Allows you to lock the analog and digital output levels of any Squeezebox, 
Transporter, or SliMP3. Can either prevent any changes in volume, or simply set 
a maximum volume. (Boom, Classic, Radio, Receiver, Slimp3, SoftSqueeze, 
Squeezebox1, Touch, Transporter)
/desc
title lang=ENVolumeLock/title
/plugin


  The plugin tag tells you it's a plugin (and not an applet,
  wallpaper image, etc.) The url attribute of that first plugin tag
  tells you where my zip file is (the minTarget says it should work on
  Squeezebox Server 7.0 or newer, and maxTarget says it should work on
  any 7.x version. Touch runs SBS 7.5, so this plugin is a good
  candidate.
-  Unzip the zip file on your computer. You should end up with a
  directory with the plugin's name (e.g. VolumeLock). The directory
  will have an install.xml file and some other content, possibly
  other subdirectories.
- Make sure remote login is enabled for your Touch. On Touch itself,
  use Home  Settings  Advanced  Remote login and check the Enable
  SSH box. 
-  Use your SSH client to log in to your Touch (use Home  Settings 
  Advanced  Diagnostics to find the IP address for your Touch)
- Use your SCP client to copy the unzipped folder to the
  /usr/squeezecenter/Plugins directory on Touch (so you should end up
  with a new directory on Touch like
  /usr/squeezecenter/Plugins/VolumeLock).
- On Touch, use Home  Settings  Advanced  Squeezebox Server and
  stop Touch's SBS instance. Wait patiently for it to stop.
- On Touch, use Home  Settings  Advanced  Squeezebox Server and
  start Touch's SBS instance. Wait patiently for it to start.
- With your SCP client, browse to /etc/squeezecenter/prefs on Touch.
  You should now see a folder named plugin or plugins and inside
  that you should see a file named after the plugin you just installed,
  e.g. VolumeLock.prefs.
-  I would suggest you go

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] IR Blaster - Suggestion

2010-01-25 Thread peterw

 I have thought of an idea.
 
 ...receive an arbitary IR signal through its receiver and in response
 issue one or more arbitary commands through its headphone socket.
 
 This would allow me (for example) to press power-on on my DVD remote
 and in response, the SB to issue an amp on, amp input select, tv input
 select and dvd on command. True macro functionality using supplied
 remotes and my squeezebox for not a lot of money!
 
 Thoughts?

IR Blaster 5.4 defines an 'irblaster' 'send' CLI command. If you can
program your remote to send JVC DVD codes, then you many be able to set
this up without writing a single line of Perl code. Use KidsPlay to map
specific JVC DVD IR codes to sequences of 'irblaster' 'send' CLI
commands. The usage for 'irblaster send' is 
Code:

irblaster send device button

 but I'm not sure what those values should look like. To find out, set
IRBlaster logging to debug and send the commands. The value for device
is the remoteName in the log's IRBlastSend entry (the button value is
labeled button in an IRBlastSend log entry).

someone might abuse this new CLI command so I can make improvements to
better protect everyone. There might be both setup changes (e.g. a
different way of enabling kidsplayexec) and usage changes (e.g. needing

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Use remote control to control Linux

2010-01-22 Thread peterw

Take a look at KidsPlay. I could pretty easily add a new CLI command
such that you could use the web UI to map a JVC button to a CLI command
like 


Code:

kidsplayexec /usr/bin/eject cdrom



To execute the eject command with cdrom as its only argument...

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Use remote control to control Linux

2010-01-22 Thread peterw

akennedy;509352 Wrote: 
 KidsPlay (with the kidsplayexec) would do exactly what I am looking for.

OK, good to hear. I hope to find time to add this to KidsPlay over the
weekend.

 The end goal for me is to use a remote to control XBMC (XBox Media
 Center) So i'll just have to find a way to hook into the XOrg input
 controls.
 

These look promising:
* sending X11 keystrokes:
http://www.doctort.org/adam/nerd-notes/x11-fake-keypress-event.html
* sending LIRC IR/button codes: http://japiblog.dddgames.com/?p=12

I like the LIRC idea a lot, especially since I have an SB3 sitting
right next to a StreamZap USB IR receiver that I use as a LIRC receiver
for MythTV (and mplayer). Along those lines, the following is probably a
better solution than X11 since XBMC is designed to be used with LIRC:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/slim-plugins/files/LIRC/LIRC%20V1.0/ --
except, considering that plugin's age (over 4 years old!), it almost
certainly needs significant work to run in SC 7.3 / SBS 7.4.

Ooh, actually there might be a significant problem with KidsPlay here.
KidsPlay's main goal was to make an IR remote usable by my young child.
One of its deliberate features (with IR codes, not Boom/Receiver
physical buttons) is to ignore repeated button presses to some extent,
to make the IR remote less frustrating. You probably want something more
like the typical LIRC usage. E.G. if you hold the Volume Down button,
you probably want XBMC to see Volume Down button events over and over. I
don't remember how I coded that ignoring logic. It might be that I can
easily expose that as a configurable variable and you could just tweak
the config so it's responsive enough.

Also along those lines, you'd probably get better responsiveness from
something like a dedicated LIRC plugin that uses 100% Perl logic to send
UDP messages to a LIRC daemon than having something like KidsPlay spawn
a full process for each button press.

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Use remote control to control Linux

2010-01-22 Thread peterw

akennedy;509399 Wrote: 
 after looking into the different options,  i think using kidsplay would
 be the simplest method.
 
 if you found the time to add the kisplayexec command i would greatly
 appreciate it.

OK, add this repository in your Extension Downloader page (if SC 7.3)
or Plugins page (if SBS 7.4):
http://www.tux.org/~peterw/slim/slim7/repodata-test.xml

and give KidsPlay 2.5.1 or newer a try. The new command is documented
in the KidsPlay configuration page. 

Note that unless you want to hack the Perl, KidsPlay requires you to
enable Password Protection and set CRSF Protection to at least Medium in
order to use the kidsplayexec command. The logic there is that
kidsplayexec is somewhat dangerous. Without password protection, and
device on your network could use it to basically get a shell prompt via
the SC/SBS CLI interface. Without CSRF protection, if somebody got you
to open a page with an IMG tag with
SRC=http://localhost:9000/status.html?p0=kidsplayexecp1=somebadcommandp2=etc,
then they could trick you into doing nasty things. I may yet add an
additional setting on the web page and default to this command not being
enabled, for another safety measure.

Please let me know how it goes!

Also, I wrote the author of that LIRC plugin, and he hasn't done any
work on it in years. :-( So that avenue would indeed require some
effort.

-Peter

 Hmm, maybe wunderground isn't the answer. My display just reverted to
 the wrong data again. I went to the SDT web settings, removed my
 wunderground station code, and tapped + on the remote to refresh data.
 All's well again. Looks like my friendly wunderground neighbor must be
 pushing bad data. Maybe I'll look up the closest wunderground airport
 code and see if that's any better.

Wrong again. I saw the bad temp again this AM, so I restarted SC/SBS
with no wunderground setting, and soon saw bad data again. So I tried
manually fetching  www .weather.com/weather/local/MyZIPHere. It took
fewer than 10 fetches for me to get a www.
weather.com/weather/today/City+ST+N web page with the bad data. So
it seems that weather.com is intermittently returning bad data. The HTML
for the bad data is very, very similar to the good -- the only good
telltale sign I found (and I confess not to have scoured the really long
bits of markup and JS that differed) was an SGML comment that includes a
number when the data is real, and an empty string when it's bad. I've
added a safeguard in my code to look for that sign. There was one other
-- the sunrise/sunset times were off by hours, as if it understood where
my ZIP really is and that the forecast it was showing me was for
somebody living ~30 degrees west of me. But I don't have a
sunrise/sunset algorithm handy, so that's not much help.

So I'm back to thinking that wunderground XML is the way to go.

Bruce, how often are you updating data? I had been updating every 5
minutes (for years!) when I saw the intermittent failures. This morning
I added my latest safeguard and increased the interval to 7 minutes. In
over 110 fetches, I've only seen 1 obvious error, and it was the second
fetch after I decreased the frequency. Probably just coincidence --
weather.com fixing a bug on their end. But I do wonder if maybe I was
seeing some sly anti-abuse measures: give random bad data to folks who
poll too often. :-)

 I'm running a hacked up copy of SDT 5.5.1 (I hacked gotWeather enough to
 get current data), and I'm seeing something similar. I can go for a few
 days (apparently), and the asterisk doesn't get stuck on, but today SDT
 did fail to update data. Restarting SC/SBS fixed it. Anyhow, since I'm
 running pretty old logic, I wonder if weather.com is being more
 aggressive in dealing with repeated requests for data. I'd really like
 to see a switch to wunderground XML for data, since they seem
 friendlier, but I haven't found any time to work on that.

Hmm, maybe wunderground isn't the answer. My display just reverted to
the wrong data again. I went to the SDT web settings, removed my
wunderground station code, and tapped + on the remote to refresh data.
All's well again. Looks like my friendly wunderground neighbor must be
pushing bad data. Maybe I'll look up the closest wunderground airport
code and see if that's any better.

 Ugh, this is a biggie for me. In the uncertain state of Squeezebox at
 this point, breaking Superdatetime has been one of my biggest fears,

 I don't suppose you're up for taking ownership of another plugin are
 you peterw? :/

It's a biggie for me, too. SDT is on my short list of must-have
plugins, and it's not fun making do without it.

You probably don't want to see my copy of SDT. :-) I've hacked mine to
include support for a FuzzyTime feature that's not mentioned on my
FuzzyTime web page -- making the text move slowly from side-to-side (to
distribute the pixel usage, in hopes that this, like AutoDim, might help
keep the VFDs in better shape). In my case, every time SDT refreshed the
weather forecast, it would move the time, weather info, and weather
conditions icon a bit to one side or the other. It works great in Large
font mode, but is messed up in Medium and Small. Since I never fixed
Medium and Small, I never bothered submitting changes to Greg Brown
(SDT's author). Anyhow, this means I might be running a relatively old
version of SDT.

I hope that Greg also still uses SDT, and that he'll jump in and fix
the HTML-parsing routine himself soon (though I know he is often very
busy with his day job). Otherwise I may have to take a stab at it, as it
really does bug me to see a plain old clock on my Squeezeboxes. I can't
imagine republishing SDT, though. Uploading a new Plugin.pm or zip file
to the forums, probably. Email it to Greg, definitely. 

If anybody here with free time knows Perl, I'd encourage you to take a
look. There's a callback function in Plugin.pm (GotWeather, I think)
that parses the response from weather.com -- looks like lots of regexp
code, just what you'd expect. It should be pretty easy to rip GotWeather
out to a standalone script for troubleshooting, I just don't know how
soon I'd be able to do that.

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] SuperDateTime stopped working ?

It's definitely due to changes at weather.com. I have a modified version
of SDT 5.5.1 (from April 2008 -- see
http://www.gregbrown.net/squeeze/superdatetime.htm to get an idea what's
missing from this version) that I believe will pull *current* weather
conditions -- that's all that I really use anyway. Would anyone be

 Oh, thanks for the info.  I was trying to figure out why changing the

I think one of the results of the changes at weather.com (and the fact
that SDT has always been very good about caching information) is that if
you kept your server running, SDT would be stuck with the last
forecast before weather.com changed its markup language. As soon as you
restart SC/SBS, SDT would start with a blank slate and be unable to get
real data.

 Bingo.  Me too after trying to resolve the problem I reported above. 
 Going to the URL directly seems to work fine on a real browser, so maybe
 weather.com changed the format so that parsing is broken in SDT.

Yeah, I think that's the problem. 

All I use SDT for is current conditions -- temp, feels like temp, and
condition icon. All that info is available in XML from Yahoo (though
only updated hourly), but SDT has worked so well that I haven't bothered
trying to write a simpler alternative (WeatherTime's 3-line layout looks
far too complex).

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] CLI-commands

Do other CLI commands use the track ID? I've been considering a change
to the KidsPlay command parser to accommodate variable substitution,
e.g. set the macro as


Code:

trackstat setrating {CURRENT_TRACK_ID} 3



so KidsPlay would then look up the track ID for you.

A compliment *and* a donation? Hey, you get a new release. :-)

Please try version 2.4.2 or newer from my test repository,
http://www.tux.org/~peterw/slim/slim7/repodata-test.xml (you'll need to
manually add it to the list of repositories). There's a new section on
the macro settings page that explains the new support for variables.
Here's the list of what it now offers:


Code:

PLAYER_NAME
  Name of the player where the button was pressed 
  PLAYER_ID
  ID (MAC address) of the player where the button was pressed 
  CURRENT_TRACK_ALBUM
  Album for the current track for the current track on the player where the 
button was pressed 
  CURRENT_TRACK_ARTIST
  Artist for the current track on the player where the button was pressed 
  CURRENT_TRACK_TITLE
  Song title for the current track on the player where the button was pressed 
  CURRENT_TRACK_ID
  Database ID number for the current track on the player where the button was 
pressed



If this works OK for you, I'll probably call it version 2.5.0 and
publish it to my main repository. Please let me know.

Thanks!

If you're using KidsPlay, definitely see the thread CLI-commands. If
not, perhaps you should be. :-) Seriously, though, KidsPlay might help
with this. It has an (undocumented) CLI that is designed to let a CLI
application invoke a KidsPlay macro, so you could define a KP macro like
JVC button 1 as trackstat setrating {CURRENT_TRACK_ID} 1, and have
your CLI client tell KidsPlay to execute the JVC button 1 macro for a
given player. KidsPlay would look up the track ID and call the trackstat
CLI command. That's nowhere near as clean as tweaking TrackStat, but let
me know if that sounds like something you'd need or want, so I can
verify that KidsPlay does behave as I described. This is a feature I
added to facilitate better support for Radio and Touch, but haven't
started using yet.

 I've been struggling with just trying to get a playlist to play via
 kidsplay macro and not had success (never tried the 'playlist play'

 I've got a couple of itunes playlists that show up at the SBS web GUI
 and play fine on the Radio if requested from there.

CliffC reports that the iTunes playlist syntax for KidsPlay is

Code:

playlist play itunesplaylist:PlaylistNameInEscapeFormat



so you might give that a try.

 Once I did the resave (wish SBS would just resave the itunes playlists
 automatically after every itunes rescan) then I could play them directly
 from the CLI using playlist play playlistname.
 
 The same exact command doesn't seem to work from kidsplay, though.  I
 know the macro is getting executing because the display text is showing
 up at the Radio, but the current playlist shows as empty (actually, the
 word used is 'nothing').

Be sure you're not over-encoding. For instance, at a telnet/CLI prompt
you might have to do something like
00:04:20:11:22:33 playlist play my%20new%20list
using standard URI % byte escaping, but in KidsPlay that would be
simply
playlist play my new list

[SlimDevices: Plugins] Announce: KidsPlay 2.4.0: per-player button macros

2009-12-27 Thread peterw

I've just released version 2.4.0 of KidsPlay. There are some UI
improvements, but the biggest change is that KidsPlay now allows you to
define per-player macros -- so the a button can do different things on
different players. 

Users of Squeezebox Server 7.4 should see KidsPlay 2.4.0 in the all
3rd party plugins area in the next hours/day. Others or anyone who's
impatient can get it from 'its main web site'
(http://www.tux.org/~peterw/slim/KidsPlay.html).

Not that I know of. First things first, check install.xml and make sure
maxVersion is at least 7.4* -- then see what happens. Some plugins
needed no change to work in 7.4 (having no trouble other than causing
deprecated warnings when SBS 7.4 starts), but others do need changes,
e.g. I have a few that intercept the 'player volume' CLI command, and
that command changed a bit in 7.4.

What plugin is this? Have you written its author?

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] DenonSerial plugin thread

2009-10-31 Thread peterw

Old news, new news.

New news: I finally got around to hooking up an XP box to act as a TCP
serial port server to make sure the serial port code worked OK. With
verison 0.1.27, it didn't, but DenonSerial version 0.1.28 fixes that
bug. It should work fine with Denon units that have serial ports and
RS232 units with devices like the 'Sena LS110'
(http://pcmicro.com/sena/) providing a TCP/telnet/network interface.

Old news: the confused and stops controlling bug has been fixed for a
while.

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] SrvrPowerCtrl - switch to an alternate local server?

2009-10-23 Thread peterw

gharris999;476272 Wrote: 
 If wanting to push players at TinySC becomes a popular pursuit, perhaps
 I can add an option in the settings to specify an alternate server.
 
 But for now, you'll be able to do exactly what you want using cli
 commands in scripts called by SrvrPowerCtrl on user initiated or idle
 events.  SrvrPowerCtrl now includes a feature whereby a custom script
 can be called on an 'external' shutdown event...i.e. if the server goes
 down for any reason (power button, external script, etc) other than a
 SrvrPowerCtrl action.  So you could still count on your players getting
 pushed to TinySC no matter what brings the master server down.

That all sounds great, thanks!

 Using SrvrPowerCtrl on TinySC will present a bit more of a challenge.

I think I wouldn't need to do that in my scenario, though. TinySC
should always be running (and why not, considering SB Touch uses less
electricity than an SB Classic), happily serving clients when
SrvrPowerCtrl sends them to TinySC, and willingly relinquishing them
when FatSC starts up and SrvrPowerCtrl pulls them back to the main
server, right? The FatSC SrvrPowerCtrl install could handle both
pre-shutdown pushes and post-startup pulls, right? I think the only
extra logic I'd want on TinySC is something to handle waking up the
FatSC server at appropriate times. Maybe that's every time someone turns
a player on, or maybe that requires a more deliberate action.

Great!

For TinySC, I think what would work best for me is a combination of a
1) plugin that would offer the Wake Up menu (so it would be available
on the TinySC Touch, the Controllers, and all our IP3K players and 2) a
UI-free Lua applet that subscribes to notifications from the plugin and
sends the WOL packets. Anyone with multiple SqueezePlay devices would
then have all their SP gear sending WOL packets, which should help wake
the server reliably even on networks with bridges and weird
segmentation. I really need to learn xmlbrowse menuing, as that seems
like the best way to present menus on all SB interfaces.

[SlimDevices: Plugins] SrvrPowerCtrl - switch to an alternate local server?

2009-10-22 Thread peterw

Can SrvrPowerCtrl be configured to switch players to an alternate local
server when the master server shuts down? I haven't used SrvrPowerCtrl
yet, mainly because my current DVR/Squeeze server doesn't support WOL.
But I also would not want to switch to SqueezeNetwork/MySqueezebox --
mainly because I'm addicted to SuperDateTime on my SB Classics. 

I'm building a new server, and revisiting the possibility of using
SrvrPowerCtrl. I'd love it if I could run a second instance of SC/SBS on
a lower power machine (probably a SB Touch running SBS 7.5 on which I
would install a few must-have plugins like SuperDateTime and Auto Dim)
and have SrvrPowerCtrl push all the players to that SBS instance when
the main server shuts down. I'd then use the SrvrPowerCtrl custom menus
to give myself an option to wake up the big server and pull the
clients back to it.

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] PowerCenter Amp Not Switching

2009-10-20 Thread peterw

jprady;474942 Wrote: 
 I have tested switching other things via the menu, and this appears to
 work, suggesting that the path etc is correct.
 
 Is there a log I can check somewhere to see what is happening -
 server.log doesn't seem to show anything?

First, double-check your X10 codes on the player settings pages;
PowerCenter is very picky about things like whitespace. Set a player for
M1 and it should work; use M1  and it won't.

PowerCenter did recently change the APIs it uses to handle on/of
switching, but I haven't had any problems on my 7.3.x production system
or my 7.4.1 test system. I'm only using bottlerocket on my system, but
that should not be a material difference. And in any case I would not
expect problems powering an amp on (PowerCenter is now more careful
about powering an amp off, to handle multizone amp setups).

You can use the server's Logging settings to log PowerCenter at Debug
level to get more information. I'm not hopeful about logging helping;
there aren't many logging statements in the on/off handling of 2.2.0.

What sort of player(s) are you using?

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Announce: Beta version of SvrPowerControl

2009-10-18 Thread peterw

My basic rationale:


- Specifying where to run (ALL,OTHERS, player name, MAC address)
  requires appending a : to the first word of the command (e.g. *ALL:
  power 0*) so KidsPlay can easily identify location specifiers; I've
  never seen a CLI command with a : in its first word.
- Commands are joined with ; because it's what I'm used to. But
  from a programmer's perspective, it better represents how KidsPlay
  works. Right now it just fires off the commands in sequence, without
  waiting for earlier commands to finish, or verifying that earlier
  commands worked. When I see *do this  do that*,  looks like a
  boolean operator (harkens back to Unix shells), almost like you're
  saying do that shouldn't occur if do this failed. Maybe I should
  add a new command or syntax extension to tell KidsPlay to wait for one
  command to finish before executing the next one in the macro.
- Words including whitespace (*display My message here*) use
  regular quotation marks and no URI-escaping so it's easier to use.
  

Of course you're most welcome to grab any code from KidsPlay if you'd
like.

Re: [SlimDevices: Plugins] Announce: Beta version of SvrPowerControl

2009-10-18 Thread peterw

Gordon, I'm working on improvements to KidsPlay to allow escaping  and
;. There should be a key routine like getCommands($client,$macroString)
that returns an array of command arrays. Each command array would have
$client or undef in the first (last?) spot and the rest would be CLI
args parsed out as appropriate. Good point about recognizing MAC
addresses: I'll update KidsPlay to not require the terminal : if the
first word is a MAC address, so 00:04:20:11:22:33 and
00:04:20:11:22:33: as the first word would mean the same thing.
