About me[edit]

I like solving problems, so I provide technical support on Home Automation (HA) and Home Theater PC (HTPC) forums, whenever I can assist... Below you will find links to various freeware/open source/commercial drivers/plugins/applications that I have developed or taken over.

Beyond TV addons[edit]

Before they switched their focus to their Enterprise edition, I had been providing technical support on the SnapStream's forums and developed some C# addons for their consumer's product, the Beyond TV Personal Video Recorder.


- BeyondTVLibrary: Open Source development library for the Beyond TV API.
- BTV-Negociator: a better conflict(s) resolution and more, for Beyond TV 4.8+.
- BTV-Externinator: external recordings (DVB/Firewire/QAMetc.) for Beyond TV 4.8+.
- GrafCorder: DirectShow recording from a simple GraphEdit .GRF file.

CQC[edit]

Using CML, I have developed a generic driver and took over an existing SageTV one, for the Charm Quark systems Home Automation application.


- Field Generator driver: Generic driver to interface with applications over TCP.
- Sage Media Server: Enhanced versions of the SageCQC driver developed by Beelzerob.

MainLobby[edit]

I have fixed bugs as well as enhanced some of the existing plugins and drivers for the MainLobby (ML) Home Automation application from Cinemar Solutions Inc. I have also developed my own plugins from scratch, using C# .NET.


Bug fixed and enhanced versions (VB)

- MLScheduler Plugin
- MLTVLobby Plugin

New plugins (C#)

- MLBeyondTV Plugin: An integration between Snapstream's BeyondTV PVR software and MainLobby.
- MLComDevice Plugin: Control a device through serial/TCP (ASCII/hex) communication.
- MLSageTV Plugin: An integration between SageTV media management software and MainLobby.
- MLSchedule Plugin: A more robust scheduling plugin than the original MLScheduler from Cinemar.

Automation neutral application[edit]

Those C# applications are not tied to either MainLobby or CQC. They can be used in stand alone mode or in principle could be used with ML, CQC or others.


- TChanger Application: Control and get status from Sony's new BDP-CX7000ES 400 disk BluRay changer, works with ML/CQC.

- TRadio Application: Application supporting the Sirius/XM satellite and HD radio, works with MainLobby and CQC.

Other[edit]

The SageTV related plugins/drivers/apps would not have been possible, without the collaboration with Beelzerob, which lead to the Open Source development of:


- SageTCPServer: An open source TCP interface for the SageTV PVR software API (SageTCPServer for developers).


I have also taken over the Open source project: iOS streaming plugin, after jreichen became too busy with his new job.
