ORCA Web Page

ORCA Version 1.1.0 available for download

As already announced, a new version is now available for download at the download page. It’s only the Windows and the Android version. The Kivy Launcher version will not work on Android anymore due to missing user rights. The MAC version is missing as I do not have a MAC and currently have no time to deal with emulators to compile the MAC version.

Forum moved to freeforums.org

I underestimated the workload to maintain a forum software (just the app not the content). So I decided to move the forum to a public hoster. The new forum can be found at http://orca.freeforums.org/index.php

Version 1.1 coming soon

Hello, a long time without updates has been passed, so shame on me. The main reason was, that I was busy at work AND I introduced some massive changes to ORCA. Currently I am testing some last features and will update the Wiki & Forum. The changelog to the new version: Introduction of online repositories: The ORCA package will just include the core files, any further files will be downloaded by an online repository for definitions, codesets, skins, languages,…. Developer can build their own repository to offer their work easily to ORCA users.

Working on Sharp AQUOS Interface(s)

Just started to work on a new interfaces for AQUOS TV. In fact, I ordered a new SHARP TV and started to develop an interface for this (before I got it), using public information.

No IOS Version short term

Hello, I played a little bit around creating the IOS version. As I am quiet confident, that the app would run on IOS, I would have to spend too much money to create the app. You NEED to have an IOS device (iPhone, iPad) You NEED to have a developer license You NEED to have a distribution license At all , minimun of 500 €uro to spend for a freeware application. I am not willing to do this. Carsten

Next Step: Home automation interface(s)

Hello, I will invest some time to start developing interfaces for home automation. ORCA is not restrictced (by design) to control your home theater set, so I will start with fhem. Fhem is a full featured sever appliance to control your environment incl. triggers and several hardware interfaces. Controlling fhem instead the native hardware controllers is an easy step into home automation. Fhem can be controlled by „telnet like“ commands and even, if I am not using it, it should be somehow easy to develop an interface. This will enable you to dim your lights when you start to play your movie with one click on your ORCA remote :-). … Weiterlesen

XBMC definition now the default definition

Hello, I deciced to create a pure XBMC defintion, which is now the default definition for new users. So XBMC users can use ORCA „out of the box“, they only need to adjust the host name of their XBMC device (and of cause need to allow remote control in their XBMC settings) So Orca will be now delivered with three defintions: * xbmc pure: Ready to use for XBMC users. One Control Screen which all main XBMC functions * showcase: An overview to the most common screen widgets of ORCA * thica: My personal setup, which shows a more complex definition using multiple interfaces and a lot of devices You … Weiterlesen
