  • Core/Hybrid
    • On-board audio, using fiber output (using digital I/O expansion card) to A/V switch
    • On-board video, using DVI output into HDMI cable, directly connected to Projector
    • USB-UIRT
    • Hauppage PVR-500
  • Projector
    • Epson Home Cinema 720
    • RS-232 control (template available in SqlCVS - you're welcome)
  • Speakers
    • Cambridge Sounworks DTT3500 (old-school multi-media speakers)
    • Uncontrollable! I have not been able to find ANY device capable of learning this thing's IR codes... Luckily, the receiver part is small, so I just put it near my couch.
    • It plays multiple inputs simultaneously, so I don't need to switch inputs.
    • LinuxMCE uses the internal volume, so once the speakers are on, I'm all set.
  • Cable box
    • Scientific Atlanta Explorer 2200 (Charter)
    • IR Control (template available in SqlCVS)
    • Connected directly to projector using S-video (too cheap to pay for HD... Besides, Charter doesn't have Discovery HD, so what's the point)
    • Connected directly to speakers with RCA to 1/8" cable
  • Sony Play Station 3
    • Video connected to component input on Projector
    • Fiber audio connected to A/V switch
    • Will be controlled via IR using Schmartz Ps3IR-1000 (it's in the mail now)
  • A/V Switch
    • IMPACT 3-Play A/V switch (S-Video, fiber/coax digital audio, RCA audio, 3 inputs, 1 output, discrete input selection via IR, toggle power via IR, powered by external DC source)
    • Controlled via IR
    • Used for fiber switch only - input from Core and PS3 are switched, since the DTT3500 only has one fiber input


  • MD
  • Monitor
    • Samsung 730B (standard 17" monitor)
  • Speakers
    • Klipsch stereo multi-media speakers
    • Excellent sound, but not controllable

LinuxMCE Projects

  • MythTV commercial skip and playback menu - Allowing us to use these great features
  • Standalone Mode - Making one-NIC LinuxMCE possible
  • Orbiter Phone - making it possible to use the Mic and speakers on the Orbiter to run simplephone
