Today I uploaded a new Image. This one is new image, it doesnt contain much more functionality but it is based on Raspbian that is a fixed point optimzed distribution for Raspberry Pi. Among the new functionality that this contain are libcec from pulse-eight.com that makes it possible to listen/send commands on the HDMI-port. So hopefully there will soon be the possibility to turn on TV or other equipment using HDMI. Perhaps there will be some TV-based GUI in the future as well. (But I am not the biggest fan of GUI programming so if anyone want to help you are very welcome).
I include some screen shots. All of them is not taken on the very latest release but they havent changed much lately.
This is the way the main page looks like, press the images for dimming, turn on and off lamps. New images are welcome if someone wants to contribute.
Main page of the administrative interface. There is one link missing to settings that has appeard in later versions of the software.

I havent chosen any solution for the TV-gui. But I already run a webserver on the RPi so a webpage is not that far off but it will be limited to be run with the TV-remote buttons so that has to be taken into account. The alternative is a native linux application. Your GUI definatly looks very good for eventghost! Is it running completely against eventghost or does it do things against various services?

The GUI is not mine, i just found it on a sweclockers.com forum, the thing is that a have a Rpi and my idea is to have it as a server for the tellstick and i would like to have a nice web based GUI to use on my tablet to control all the lights, but as far as i know Eventghost is just for windows,

Eventghost is Windows only, perhaps there are some Linux fork but I haven't heard of it. My goal with this project is to have something similar on RPi. I even consider forking the plugin handling of EG to be able to reuse some plugins. But probably that is a little to much work for me alone. I already have a simple structure for plugins and I probably stick with that to start with.

yes it sounds to be a little to much work to forking EG, but i will try out your image in the weekends (linux noobie) keep up your good work!

Hej David, jag har precis installerat din senaste version på min RPI, och har precis köpt en Tellstick Duo, jag försöker klura ut hur jag lägger in en Nexa switch i den, det är en äldre switch med vrid reglage för inställningarna, jag har gått in på "add raw tellstick device" men vilket procotoll ska jag köra på?

Hi, if you still need help with designing and building a nice GUI then I'm more than happy to help. Studying interactiondesign and always trying to make my home as comfy as possible.

Just found and tried out you're project and thinks it great with a raspberry pi as the core device.

With your groundwork and building further I think it's possible to make something that every person could use. It should be easy to control your home with cell phone, tv and computer etc.

I'm guessing you're swedish as me, so Hej! kladdkaka är gott :)

Help is always wanted. In my plans are to create some way to create "custom remote pages" that should be a list of controls that is basically on/off/activate/dim-X (each control connected to a certain device and its command. The list should also contain some placement indications like x and y (not neccessary pixels). This is then combined with some kind of rendering that might create buttons, clickable images or something else based on this information. In that way users could create custom "remotes" for each person in the house or for various tasks.
If you dont understand what I am trying to say, thats nothing to worry about, I dont realy understand how it should fit toghether either ;-). Drop me an email if you want to discuss and help!
