Support in LinuxMCE

The device is supported plug and play by LinuxMCE. It will be used as a microphone for the embedded orbiter phone (aka SimplePhone), which is used for making phone calls and for the Intercom functionality. Installing the device is as simple as:

  • Step 1: Attach the Phoenix Solo USB device to the media director
  • Step 2: Attach a set of computer speakers to the speaker port on the back.
  • Step 3: ....There's no Step 3....There's no step 3....

Nothing else is required, you can instantly use the phone functionality, and the embedded orbiter phone will use the microphone for both input and output.

Cool, huh? ;)
