Jolla Tablet!

Everyone probably know this by now, but still, Jolla announced a Indiegogo campaign to create a Jolla Tablet, running Sailfish OS 2.0. The specs are impressive, quad-core Intel, 330PPI screen.

The campaign is going great, at time of writing 25% of the goal has already been raised! Join now to get yours at Indiegogo!

Artwork loading added to libqiscp

Worked a bit on libqiscp today and added support for receiving and decoding artwork data the receiver might send. The decoding into a QImage works very well, but the next thing is to somehow get that transferred to the QtQuick side.

Artwork loaded trough ISCP

I imagine a QDeclarativeImageProvider would be the proper way, but the thing is I don't know really how to connect that into the dynamically created QtQuick ISCP object(s).
Any ideas ?

Late night soldering leads to pain

I'll just quickly solder the connectors... right. Not the best of ideas after a day of moving and sauna.

Can you spot the tiny little mistake in this picture ?

There is something not quite right in this

Idiotic connector types

Whoever it is that thought "lets use a RJ-45 connector for serial port!" should be beaten with a good old thin Ethernet cable with a T-connector on the end.

Anyway... seems my cheap RJ-45 to RS-232 cable from dx works, /me happy

LOM event: power on
Netra t1 (UltraSPARC-IIi 440MHz), No Keyboard
OpenBoot 3.10.25 ME, 1024 MB memory installed, Serial #14304548.
Ethernet address 8:0:20:da:45:24, Host ID: 80da4524.

Quick intro to Onki 0.0.3

Here is a quick introduction to Onki.

Onki 0.0.3 released

Where did the days go, already 22 days since 0.0.2 docked in the Harbour. Well, anyway, I just uploaded 0.0.3 to Harbour and OpenRepos.

Whats new you ask ? Well, plenty:
  • Loosing sync with the device should be fixed now
  • Audio settings on a separate page, the basic Bass and Treble, Center and Subwoofer volume adjustments. Also Music Optimizer toggler.
  • Preliminary zones support. Input selection only for now, need to do some more internal re-working for this to work ok. Oh and only Zone 2 has been tested, so if you happen to have one of those more expensive that support 3 or 4 zones, please let me know if it works or not.
  • And that means preliminary, you can select a source for other zones, but not much else.
  • Tuner presets, yay :)
  • Device is asked for supported inputs and zones and if it knows how tell use that then we will use them
  • Remorse timer for Power-off button
  • Optional autoconnect on start (if only one device is found by device discovery)

Tuner presets!
Known bugs/features missing:
  • No way to power-off zones 2,3,4
  • Sometimes query for inputs,zones and presets fails. Re-connect and it should work.
