More than one phone?
great Page! Do you know if it is possible to use more than one phone for the Bluetooth Proximity Control? That would be very nice when every family-member can use it.
update: two bluetooth phones work. :) i have the bluetooth dongle only on the core, so everytime a family-member enters the house the light is going on - it' really very cool! :) thank you!
Wow. Nice write up.
I just wanted to say that what you have done here, has answered a lot of questions about the system, that I was afraid to try on my own.
Great job, and Thank You.

Hey guys! thanks for the good words, glad to hear that this page isn't going entirely unnoticed, haha...I still have a few more things to add, so keep watching for updates
Multiple phones may work...I happen to have an extra phone with bluetooth so I will try some things out and update that section if I figure it out!
feel free to ask any questions, I love to help! also, I will probably clean a few things up once I have everything done that I want to do, if there is something you want me to experiment with and write what I find, let me know!
UPDATE: Multiple bluetooth proximity devices
I updated the bluetooth proximity section with a bit of information regarding the use of multiple phones as proximity devices...make sure you read it all and heed all warnings!
UPDATE: Lots of stuff
I added a bit of stuff tonight, stuff in the bluetooth section, stuff in the skype/webcams section and made a new section for text message/email alerts...thanks for reading! more to come soon
This has changed the way I use LinuxMCE
I just wanted to take another moment to thank you for this write up. I have added channels from di.fm per your post to my office and bedroom media directors, and falling asleep to the Chill Out channel on that stream and using it's Ambient station in the office has made working and sleeping around the house excellent.
The next steps I will take from your wiki will be the bluetooth proximity bits, and the e-mail notifications regarding changes in the office. I will post my results here.
Thanks again, and have a great day!

My pleasure, if you have any difficulties following the write up or getting things to work in general, let me know and I will try to help you out. Glad to know this is helping! The original intent was mainly to help myself in the future whenever I have to re-do things, I did almost the same setup in lmce0710 r2 but wanted a clean install of 0810 and therefore had to redo it all...figured I should take notes this time around...knowing people are reading my notes encourages me to keep them detailed and thorough! I still have a few more things I want to do...and need to figure out how to get this skype thing working
Lack of updates
Sorry fellow wiki readers, I have not had much time to mess around with MCE since I started my job so the page is left incomplete for the time being. Keep a watch on this page for whenever I do finish up the things I still want to do! Thanks for reading :-)
