your current plugin XML looks like this... XBMC2.RemoteLeft()
your old plugin XML... EventGhost.PythonCommand('XBMC.RemoteLeft()')

you also changed these...

Can't find action: XBMC2.RemoteSkip +()
Can't find action: XBMC2.RemoteSkip -()
Can't find action: XBMC2.RemoteVol +()
Can't find action: XBMC2.RemoteVol -()
Can't find action: XBMC2.RemoteRecorded TV()
Can't find action: XBMC2.RemoteLive TV()
Can't find action: XBMC2.Remote*()

I have it working now but it took a while to figure it out.


Hi there! I have the exact same problem. Upon loading EG, i get the exact same messages in red text. You said you got it working now. Could you perhaps let me and for that matter, all of us know what you did to fix it?

Thanks in advance!

Clear the log and then press a couple of the buttons that have this problem and then copy and paste the log in a post here.

Do you use any of these actions? They are all in XBMC2\Buttons\Remote.
If you don't use them you can just delete them. If you use any of them you can just replace them by using the Add Action... menu option.

so..was fnally able to get everything working...
Things i did:

Unchecked trigger enduring events options
Checked use ps3 remote key as event name
Disabled all the existing plugins in the example.xml ..better start from a new one. The existing events were running havoc on my config.
Disabled all the examples /folders/macros.
Thats it... unchecking enduring events made it possible to read the button presses without a issue.

Thats it.. still need to figure some actions but thats cool..

Thanks everyone.

Add an "EventGhost\Autorepeat current macro" action to the macro.

Do you mean pressing two buttons at the same time on the remote and having EventGhost start XBMC? If you get an event just use it.
Or do you mean pressing one button and then another to start XBMC? Then you would need one macro to catch the first button event and then activate a macro to catch the second button event that starts XBMC.
Check out the example.xml EventGhost config how to enable/disable macros to use the same remote buttons for different actions.

I don't know if that's possible, you need to ask in the PS3 thread as that is plugin/remote dependent.

Thanks for the reply jonib. I don't use those in my config, so I just deleted them as suggested. Thank you. Such a simple solution and it escaped me...

I have released ver 0.6.2. I have added some new actions and changed a lot of descriptions for actions to match XBMCs documentation. Go here for the download.

I have added some actions, some might only work with nightly versions of XBMC.
In the "FullScreen Video" folder added SubtitleDelay, AudioDelay, IncreasePAR and DecreasePAR.
And in the "Uncategorized actions" folder added VerticalShiftUp, VerticalShiftDown, PlayPause, ReloadKeymaps, GuiProfile, Red, Green, Yellow and Blue.

Edit: I also changed in Buttons\Remote folder, channelplus/channelminus to CH +/CH - and pageplus/pageminus to PG +/PG - to better match XBMC documentation.

There shouldn't be any problems updating to this version but it's always a good idea to backup the EventGhost config before.

Re: Screensaver Event?

Postby spazlon » Tue Jun 21, 2011 8:18 pm

So I am trying to make the transition from MC7 to XBMC. Is there a way to find out when the XBMC screensaver is activated?

Is there a way I can add an XBMC action for an XBMC plugin?

I use the XBMC plugin named "XBMC Flicks" which gives an interface for using NetFlix. I would like to add a command to EventGhost that will start the "Instant Moveis and Shows" for the XBMC Flicks plugin.

Is there a way I can create an action for XBMC2 to trigger that particular event for XBMC Flicks?

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks for the continued development of the XBMC2 plugin, it works masterfully!
