Sure, I'll try to do it this weekend.kkl wrote:sem;colon,
Any chance that your great plug-in could be easily modified to support multi-load? I have a second Pioneer receiver that I'd like to control. Thanks.
I really appreciate that you've taken the time to do this. I didn't catch the new instructions in the first post initially, but after going through those steps, all seemed to be well. I was afraid that I was going to have to make all new entries for each command, but just adding the Host entry to each Action is sufficient. Thank you very much.Sem;colon wrote:Please find the new version at the first post!
Edit: Oh, just saw that each Event now has an additional suffix, so that may require some editing. I understand the need for it.

If you leave the alias field in the "Add Host" action empty you will not get the additional suffix on the events, so for the receiver that was previously in you configuration just leave this field empty and you don't have to edit the old macros
Good to know. I mistakenly assumed it was required. This really does minimize the trauma of transitioning.

So I just released a new version ( v0.8 ) with the option to turn this function on or off for every single receiver.
You can find the new version at the first post!
can someone please explain me how I can do this from scratch? I tried the quoted tutorial a dozen times, it doesn't work. What file do I begin with? The one from ThomasBott?Sem;colon wrote:Follow these steps to upgrade:
1. Open your configuration tree in EventGhost
2. Write down your old plugin configuration (just the configuration on the plugin itself, just that you don't forget it as you will have to enter it again)
3. Close Eventghost
4. Replace the __init__.py file for the plugin in the plugins directory of the EventGhost program directory.
5. Open your configuration tree in EventGhost again
you will get an Error that the plugin can not be loaded - that's normal.
6. Open the plugin configuration of the Pioneer_AV_NET plugin
7. Click OK (important!)
8. Create a new action in the Autostart branch of EventGhost: Pioneer_AV_NET: "Add Host" and fill in you previously used settings for the plugin. (leave the alias field empty!)
9. Save your configuration tree
10. Restart EventGhost
totally lost here ...
Thank you very much.
the "tutorial" is just the upgrade routine if you installed an older version of the plugin in your EG configuration and what to update it to a newer version.
If you didn't use the plugin in the past, you don't need to do these steps, just use the __init__.py you can download from the first post and put it in a separate folder in the plugins folder under your EventGhost program folder (C:\Program Files (x86)\EventGhost\plugins\Pioneer_AV_NET).
Restart EG and you can choose the plugin under "add plugin" in the EG GUI.
Does that mean I have to create all macros by myself? When I tried ThomasBott's Pioneer Plugin it had everything already in place. It just wasn't working reliably and randomly stops working so I would have to restart Eventghost.
That's why I tried your version. But there isn't anything other than the connection between EG and my Pioneer Receiver VSX-924.
another question: after adding your plugin I see tons of movement (one event after the other). Is that normal? I am not too sure if this is supposed to be this way
thank you very much!
well, if you used the old version before I don't understand why the "tutorial" at the first post didn't work for you.
It's still the same plugin, the only difference is, that you now need to create a host instead of configuring the settings in the plugin directly.
Do you get any Errors?
But know I use Thomas Bott's one to determine the right command and use yours to integrate the correct commands.
I think I will manage know.
Yours seem to work without any issues. So thank you very much for your contribution!
One question though: What is the command for the dimmer? One of the things I use the most. Please help!
