SPA 3102 Getting Started

March 2, 2013, 1:21 a.m. quadruple play

Still stuck here on wordpress, need to clean out the drafts folder before flipping the switch for Jekyll. There were 23 drafts in all Some more than six years old! Only one or two are worth preserving. Here is one, that was originally written on Nov 22, 2008 but never published. This was part of my ...

MythTv

Dec. 4, 2008, 1:46 a.m. quadruple play , video

My Desktop's menu says mythtv is installed. I can even run it and watch TV. But it doesn't have any sounds. Mythtv has been muted. I reckoned updating it ought to fix it ( F9 -> F10 upgrade will leave this behind because it comes from third party repositories). YUM  has it's own ideas and tells ...

Mythtv delete all episodes of a recorded program

Oct. 26, 2008, 11:48 p.m. Python , quadruple play

Sure there is more than one way to delete all episodes of a recorded program with mythv - they are just not very obvious. So I decided that my first learning task with python will be to write a script that does just that. In order to do so, you need to learn how to connect to a database - that was r ...

udevd[486]: lookup_group: specified group 'fuse' unknown

Oct. 4, 2008, 2:47 a.m. quadruple play

I am seeing these messages when plugging in a Huawei CDMA phone with it's TI USB cable. I reckoned this might have something to do with my recent hard drive corruption and figured I ought to update my fuse packages. Unfortunately it didn't quite work out. ...

Mythical Sounds

July 16, 2008, 12:14 a.m. quadruple play , video

The webserver and the web browser aren't the only things that caused trouble. Alsa also played it's part. Sound on Fedora has always been one big headache. They kept making too many changes too often. We had to change from OSS to ALSA and then to Pulse Audio, a real pain in the ear. Apparently Debia ...

E51 and Asterisk Revisited.

May 7, 2008, 8:16 p.m. quadruple play

In the middle of the night there was a power failure and the Asterisk server I had configured was shut down. When it restarted the Nokia E51 wouldn't connect to it (it's set to automatic connect). I tried manual connect but the phone just seemed to wait for an eternity before saying could not connec ...

Asterisk and Nokia E51

May 5, 2008, 11:26 a.m. quadruple play

Asterisk plays an important part in my Quadruple play at home scenario. I had previously set it up so that zoiper softphone on my macbook could connect to it and talk to another macbook. I hadn't previously configured it with a hard phone or on linux.Setting up the hardphone, the Nokia E51 was reall ...

p7131 Radio

Jan. 21, 2008, 10:53 p.m. quadruple play

Yipeee. After a quite a struggle, the analog TV tuner on the P7131 is working fine with mythtv and tvtime. However I cannot say the same about it's radio. The radio doesn't work at all. The only thing I can get out of it is an entry in /var/log/messages that says "tuner' 1-004b: tuner has no way to ...

MythTv Working at last

Jan. 17, 2008, 10 p.m. quadruple play , video

After sorting out all the RPM dependencies for MythTV In finally managed to get the it installed on my media center. No I didn't use LinuxMCE, I just installed all the RPMs using yum. Unfortunately I couldn't get any audio or video out of it. This was purely a configuration issue but I didn't know i ...

Linux MCE

Jan. 15, 2008, 12:17 a.m. quadruple play

Mythtv on Fedora seems to be such a pain in the neck. Perhaps I should have downloaded mythdora instead but what I decided to do after giving up on Fedora 8 was to download linux MCE. There are two flavours, one for idiot and another for non idiot. Later on I found that there is little difference be ...

Mythtv is it just a myth?

Jan. 13, 2008, 4:33 a.m. quadruple play

Been struggling with MythTV for a nearly two weeks. It seems that MythTV is just a myth. At first I tried to install from the sources but ./configure kept on complaining about a missing liblame even when it was present on the hard drive for all to see. So I switched to YUM.Installation through yum d ...

IP Telephony at home.

Dec. 13, 2007, 7:28 a.m. quadruple play

My home network is supposed to carry all kinds of stuff including data, video and voice. The voice bit is causing trouble. There aren't any licensed VOIP providers in Sri Lanka (yes , our politicians are dragging us into the dark ages). So if you buy a phone it's a POTS terminal or a mobile. And the ...

Two steps closer Quadruple Play

Dec. 8, 2007, 7:28 p.m. quadruple play

My quadruple play at home scenario was seriously stuck in a rut until a couple of weeks ago but finally things have started to move forward.One of the biggest stumbling blocks of course was the broadband connection but fortunately Dialog Broadband stepped up and connected me up with a 2Mbps WiMax co ...

Finally I have got my Dialog Telekom WiMax connection and I am very happy dialog customer once again. As I understand it this is the first connection given out from the Battaramulla base station. There were several issues in setting up the connection and the installation crew had to labour for two d ...

Home Network.

Visited Eastlink and bought some of the requirement for the network at my new house (which is still under construction).The network is to be part wired and part wireless. The wired bits will be gigabit Ethernet. Obviously Cat 6 cabling is needed. The other option fiber optic cabling is out of the qu ...

Asterisk

Sept. 13, 2007, 11:27 p.m. quadruple play

Quadruple play at home took a backseat the last couple of weeks because of a lots of other things including the Literary Festival. But I did get an opportunity to download and install asterisk. Installation was straight forward but afterwards I found myself asking what now?Finding answers to that qu ...

Quadruple Play at Home

Aug. 29, 2007, 5:01 a.m. quadruple play

Quadruple play is a favorite telco buzzword to describe the integration of Mobile and Fixed telephony with broadband internet plus television and their delivery through one network. It seems an appropriate term to describe the setup I have planned for my new home.Perhaps it's better to use the term ...
