Re: Yamaha RX-Vxxx (or similar) Ethernet Plugin!

I'm getting an error when I try to "Get Info" for the "Active Speakers" in the category of "System." Here's what I receive: Yamaha RX-V Network Receiver: Get Info: Active Speakers Error in Action: "Yamaha RX-V Network Receiver: Get Info: Active Speakers" Traceback (most recent call last) (0.5.0-rc5)...

Re: Hide mouse cursor?

I actually found a small little program called AutoHideMouseCursor that will automatically hide the cursor after a set period of time. As soon as you move the mouse, it then reappears. This is exactly the functionality I was hoping for, so for now I'll stick with it.

Hide mouse cursor?

Is there a way to toggle the visibility of the mouse cursor with EG? My HTPC shows the mouse centered on the screen at various times when the user is controlling things with a remote. This is a bit distracting and I'd like it hidden. However, when I do pick up the mouse, I'd like to make it visible ...

Re: SoundGraph iMON VFD/LCD Display plugin

Thank you, jachin99, for bumping this thread after 4+ years! I never knew this plugin existed! I have an Antec Fusion HTPC case with a built in iMon VFD on the front. It's been disconnected for years because I had to replace the power supply and the factory supply had a proprietary power cable for t...

Re: Xbox One Remote Power?

Fantastic! I assume the best course of action would be to run the larger script at startup as you mentioned.

Then, when you want to power it on, you run the shorter script and then immediately the longer script to reset everything. That way, every time you go to run the shorter script, it's ready.

Xbox One Remote Power?

I stumbled upon this script for sending WOL signals to an Xbox One to power it up over the network: https://github.com/Schamper/xbox-remote-power

Is this something that can be turned into a plugin or easily integrated into EG? I'm a little ignorant on where to get started.

Thanks!

Re: Yamaha RX-Vxxx (or similar) Ethernet Plugin!

Could someone help me come up with a way to check what input my receiver is in and do something based on each input?

Re: Samsung Smart TV Plus

Yeah, I'm just using a 15' HDMI so looks like no problems there. What's really awesome is that since the triggers for automation are now based on the TV's power instead of button presses on a special remote, it doesn't matter how I turn on the TV (TV's remote, on-board power button, etc), it will st...

Re: Samsung Smart TV Plus

Fortunately, I am not experiencing this issue. I've fully integrated this setup into my tree and it has GREATLY reduced the complexity of starting up and powering down my TV setup on the HTPC.

Re: Samsung Smart TV Plus

@ kgschlosser Thanks for the ideas. I actually was doing some monitoring of what goes on in EG when I turn on and off my display. It just so happens that the HDMI changes trigger events. So, whenever the TV turns off, it triggers: System.DeviceAttached [u'\\\\?\\DISPLAY#SAM094D#5&133f93b4&0&UID257#{...

Re: Samsung Smart TV Plus

Does this plugin allow for pulling the power status of the TV? For instance, I'd like to create a macro that checks if the TV is on or not and then sends the correct power command.

Re: Event when team scores?

That is precisely what I have. I have triple checked to make sure it's EXACTLY in that format. I have also copied and pasted what I inputted into the script into the website and they are correct.

Could it be an issue with my password? It contains a few special characters.

Re: Event when team scores?

I did read that, signed up, and entered in my information correctly. I tried some basic googling and it seems to be an issue with the line: '{}:{}'.format(USERNAME, PASSWORD).encode('utf-8') More specifically: '{}:{}' https://stackoverflow.com/questions/21034954/valueerror-zero-length-field-name-in-...

Re: Event when team scores?

Do I just make a new macro with a Python Script action and paste the code in? I changed NFL to NHL and made the team code STL. I also added my username and password. When I try to test it, I get this error: Traceback (most recent call last): Python script "8", line 25, in <module> '{}:{}'.format(USE...
