I too am interested in Home automation.
I have been planning to build a Myth box so that I can some how incorporate
Home Automation as a plug-in.
I am an experience C/C++ programmer, with limited spare time. But I am very
interested in MythTv and home automation. I believe that home automation
would fit well in to the Myth interface.
Here is what I would like to accomplish with home automation in MythTV.
1. Simple manual device control.
2. I would like it if a lighting scene is executed when I play a DVD or
3. Create a different light scene that is executed when I listen to music.
4. Some sort of visual notification when a device is turned on/off or when a
sensor is tripped.
I have been investigating different approaches and would like to here your
I plan on using X10 protocol to control X10 devices. There already exist
Linux drivers to communicate with such devices.
I like the idea that the myth screen have a 'hole' in it for playing video
