Re: Virtual pictures

Thanks! It's the real deal.

Re: Website update

There's also some serious confusion in the documentation regarding X10, which is the oldest (and still widely used) Home Automation protocol. The section on that seems to be referring to X10 the manufacturer , not the protocol. I remember the ATI remotes and such and they had nothing to do with what...

Re: Website update

Don't have time to read all these threads. Has the site been updated since the original post? Doesn't look too terrible to me, though certainly it could use a lot of improvement. And dumping Bootstrap/jQuery on top of it is not how to make it "modern". Just figure out what sort of layout you want (d...

Re: Broadcaster Plugin Received Data Fix

Here is the full fix: https://github.com/david-mark/EventGhost/blob/master/plugins/Broadcaster/__init__.py. Does this mean you don't need me to run the tests? :mrgreen: Not at this time. What I'd appreciate is if you could try the new version of the plug-in and add the suggested print statements to...

Re: When receiving UDP with nordic characters?

you have to understand. mine is a band-aide not a fix. I understand that perfectly. I posted some band-aids myself in the other thread to log lots of info and optionally catch exceptions. All designed to be temporary. and i personally don't care who goes with what. I only care to the extent that it...

Re: Broadcaster Plugin Received Data Fix

Here is the full fix: https://github.com/david-mark/EventGhost/blob/master/plugins/Broadcaster/__init__.py ...It hasn't been merged into the official trunk as of yet and occurred to me that it's not the easiest journey from the pull request I linked earlier and this file. And just in case we do run ...

Re: Broadcaster Plugin Received Data Fix

and the encoding does not take place in the Trigger event... it takes place in the log. where it is displayed i do have a question tho.. are you running EG in debugging mode??? because of the use of python codecs and 'ascii' when it writes to the log file. and it specifically states ascii in the tr...

Re: Broadcaster Plugin Received Data Fix

Fixed! After extensive testing with fresh eyes (really needed to sleep after the marathon yesterday), I've figured out exactly what causes that exception. In short, you have to pass something wrong to TriggerEvent to make it throw an exception. BTW, sucks that those Python messages aren't red in the...

Re: Broadcaster Plugin Received Data Fix

Highly unlikely as I certainly don't use that and we are both experiencing random gibberish in received UDP packets. I'm starting to lean towards the asyncore and/or EG's interface with it. Regardless, we might as well forget about UDP for the moment; we solved one glaring issue with it (decoding t...

Re: Broadcaster Plugin Received Data Fix

Are you never intentionally sending "'ï'" to that UDP port ? Something is, just as something periodically sent some screwy characters to mine (causing identical exceptions). Do you run VoxCommando by any chance? That's what I'm saying. So the question is where is that character coming from. Mine to...
