    Default This is what I have been working on

    I liked the MainLobby look so I kind of recreated it in NetRemote

    This is my first CCF since the NetRemote 1.0 days

    Work is still in progress as I'm relearning lua and get used to the software but here is what I got so far

    Let me know what you think

    My Setup.

    I live in rural Eastern Ontario in a split level bungalow located on 1/2 an acre.

    For Audio distribution I'm using a Sony STR-DE3 ES Dual Zone a Yamaha RX-V557 dual zone amp, zone2 output feeding a Radio Shack MPA-200 100Wx2 rackmount amp and a Denon 2805 2 Zone amp Main zone configured for 5.1 and Zone 2 using the internal amp.

    I'm also using A/B Speaker switching to drive bathroom speakers and a lynksys wireless Media Bridge with a mini stereo unit.

    For video distribution I have 2 RCA IR video switchers moded to use hardwired switching trough a SECU16 module.

    Both switchers 6 inputs are connected together with RCA Y Adapters and their outputs are fed into a 2 channel RF modulator. Ch 58 and Ch 62

    while their inputs are fed by 3 digital cable boxes a HD-PVR and a MythTV PVR.

    This forms a poor mans 6 input 2 output matrix switch.

    The output of the RF modulator is ditribuited to the bedrooms bathroom and living room ect...

    The Family room in the basement consists of a 52" Sony Bravia HDTV LCD tv with a Sony PS3 and a Wii and an Xbox running XBMC running at 1080i and a HTPC running Linux that has the XBMC frontend and the 5.1 speaker setup running of the Denon AV receiver.

    The living room has a 42" Samsung Plasma Tv with an Xbox with XBMC

    The Master Bedroom has a 23" Samsung 1080P HDTV with an Xbox with XBMC.

    For control I'm using 3 Logitech 890Pro Remotes (one for each living area) with the RF base unit located in the equipment closet.

    I'm also looking to purchase a 15" ELo touchscreen to install in the Living Room/Dining Room/Kitchen common are wall to run my Netremote Interface.

    I'm also using the older XBOXes as network connected media extenders, they are moded and running XBMC.

    My network consist of a Cable modem going into a linksys wireless router running DD-WRT connected to a 16port 10/100 switch, GB switch, and a VOIP router.

    All of the movies and music collection is stored on a Dlink DNS323 network storage with 2 TB of storage.

    The equipment is housed in an equipment closet and the amplifiers are sitting on shelves mounted to a 19" rack

    My automation hardware consists of the following:

    P4 3.2GHz server running XP Pro with JRMC, Girder, Netremote, WebCamXP.

    The server is in an Antec cube case and has the following PCI devices ATI TV wonder( for security Camera Input), for music Zones I have a SB Audigy4 sound card (3 zones), Aureal Audio sound card (1 zone), and built in sound card (1 zone) and an external USB SB for hardware audio sync, and an aditional zone using the linksys wireless bridge for a total of 5 independent zones.

    USBUIRT, Ocelot, Secu16i, Secu16, W800RF32, NetCallerID, CM11 X10, Smarthome Dimmers, Smarthome Relay Switches all of them 2 way capable.

    RF motion detectors, RF door/window switches, X10 phase coupler,
    3 TouchLinc touchscreen X10 Units.

    Work is still in progress.

    What have you been using your SECU-16I and SECU-16 for? Any unique digital I/O ideas?

    Sorry forthe long delay in posting but Summer time is Camping and Outdoor time so all home automation/computing goes into standby till the weather starts to cool down.

    Now that its officially Fall I have started toplay arround again with my HA stuff.

    I installed a front enterance camera and planing on installing 3 more arround the house.

    I got a 1000' of 14AWG CL3 rated Belden Speaker cable and also bought a 15" touchscreen monitor to install in the Hallway.

    As for the question regarding my use of the Secu16 I use it to detect the status of my receivers the status of some motion detectors and control the source selection of my DIY 6 source 2 zone video/audio switcher.
