what's next ...

I just want to give you a update on the projects status.
After thinking about how to use this with my new Tv and HTPC, the following ideas came up ...

1. update the code for the arduino to be multi protocol capable
I plan to implement the following protocols:
atmolight (allready done, just some cleanup), momolight, DMX, TBL (used by boblightd)

2. option for offline operation (standby animation, startup animation, fixed colour triggered somehow)

3. remote control via a IR tv remote control

Disable automatic mount of USB devices in XBMC

this seems to be the best way
We just tell the "HAL" not to mount any USB storage devices.
I created a file under "/usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor" called "99-ignore-usb.fdi" with the following contents

<deviceinfo version="0.2">
<match key="@block.storage_device:storage.bus" string="usb">
<merge key="volume.ignore" type="bool">true</merge>
