Final integration VDR and LinuxMCE

Today a final version of LinuxMCE-VDR integration was officially announced. Main achievement of that release is possibility to watch different channels on the different media directors (before it was possible to watch one channel to all MDs). Additionally the stability of VDR and support of remote controls (especially MCE remote) were improved.

Pre-compiled binaries for 32- and 64-bit are available here. Inside archive you can find README file explained the process of installation of packages.

UPDATED: According to information from the LinuxMCE forum developers cleaned VDR sources. So, now original VDR source can be used to build its plug-ins.

Control MCE over TPC/IP

MCE Controller

MCE Controller allows the Media Center application of Windows Media Center Edition (MCE) to be integrated into an advanced control system by enabling programmatic control of the user interface via a TCP/IP connection.
This application was initially developed to enable integration of MCE into a Crestron whole-house audio/video system. However, it is general enough that it can be utilized from any control system that supports sending text strings to a TCP port. Most control systems, such as Crestron, Premise, or AMX, support IR emitting.
So, using MCE Controller you can integrate your MCE with Plutohome, MisterHouse or some other open source system for home automation. In case of Plutohome, it’d be possible to create a GSD interface and implement all commands on Ruby.
