VOMP for Raspberry Pi / Re: support for local server
« on: January 07, 2013, 23:05:00 »

To answer a question much earlier in the thread, the upcoming release of version 0.4.0 will support locating a VDR/VOMP server on the same IP as the client.

So make is complaining that implicit and normal rules are mixed, presumably conflicting. From where I am right now I can't do anything about that. What has probably happened is that you're using a newer version of Make which is stricter, or has changed default rules. If you want to take on the challenge you need to debug that makefile and patch it .... Not the easiest job.

What O/S are you trying this on?

The script is only tested on Debian Squeeze, you are probably running it on something newer. FYI, Squeeze is gcc 4.4.5. There is a patch in the cross compiler build system if I remember correctly which allows newer versions of gcc - you might be able to modify that to include gcc 4.7.2, and see if it works. You might run into other problems to solve as well though :) Good luck!


VOMP General / MVP / VDR 1.7.32 Freeview HD EPG patch
« on: December 02, 2012, 21:10:06 »
I have modified the patch listed here:
to compile with VDR 1.7.32 and decode the oddly compressed EPG on Freeview HD (UK).

The Huffman tables are not included in this version.

If someone else is already maintaining this patch please let me know ...


I have applied the patch to vompserver git. Thanks hondansx, Uwe and MartenR for fixing that.

VOMP General / MVP / Raspberry Pi Forum Section

At the excellent suggestion of odin4242 there is now a specific Raspberry Pi section to the forum. I have moved a few topics from here to there already, so check there for missing posts!

VOMP General / MVP / Re: Any replacement for MediaMVP?
« on: August 24, 2012, 20:56:28 »
I knew someone would beat me to it :)

So it's a key which enables omxplayer and XBMC to play MPEG2. I wonder how this is done and whether it can be integrated into vomp? No pressure Marten ;)

I know I definitely got my £2.40 worth out of the licence I presumably paid for my MVP..

There's a few more things I want to do first, but yes. I can't consider a time scale yet though.

Mine did finally arrive, just before I left home for 2 weeks or so. I got 2h with it!

I think there is hope for the supply/demand situation to sort itself out. The foundation spent months making 10000 boards, of which 4000 went to Farnell and 4000 to RS. As soon as compliance testing passed, at least Farnell pressed the great big "go" button and they expect to have shipped 140,000 boards by the end of June I think they said. So that's some acceleration!

VOMP General / MVP / New things
« on: June 24, 2012, 18:43:03 »
A few minor updates..

The forum website is now available over experimental IPv6. If you see any problems please let me know.

I have put the makedevenv scripts into git, and they will be downloadable this way only from now on. It will make changing things in the makedevenv system much easier.

Also, not new but... This forum is available over https if you want to access it securely. It's a self signed certificate, but at least you don't put your password over the wire in the clear.

What is this raspberry pi you speak of ..... I remember ordering something that never turned up..... ;)

Marten's patch is now in the git repo, just fyi.

VOMP General / MVP / Re: UTF-8 hack for Vomp client
« on: May 31, 2012, 20:39:21 »
Hi all..

Marten sent me a UTF8 patch and urged me to apply it to the server code. It all works server side and sends ISO-8859 to clients by default unless it is asked by the client to send UTF8. I believe this is different to the way your patch works? I'm glad there's still interest in making vomp better!

Announcements / Switch to git, new makedevenv script
« on: May 23, 2012, 21:08:42 »
I have switched the source code repository to git hosted on this web site, away from CVS at SourceForge. Gitweb for the repository is available at , the repositories can be cloned like this:

git clone<projectname>.git

MartenR, who has worked on vomp for Windows and vomp for various other things, has a new vomp client git repository here which he will be using to experiment with a client for the Raspberry Pi.

I have updated the makedevenv script to version 9 to download the vomp client source code from the git repository.
