Re: Screen Settings

OK so the problem appears to be the pioneer AVR. only Pioneers Pro line has the ability to use DDC/CI I bet if you plugged the TV directly into the video card it would probably work. This is one of the many reasons why i do not use the HDMI on the AVR without the use of an HDMI splitter. when using ...

Re: Screen Settings

Not no luck. we simply need to find the proper driver for ya. Most screens in laptops are made by LG. but that depends on the brand of laptop as well. if you go and look in device manager load up the hardware id. this is not going to be liek the usual hardware ids. do a google search for it and see ...

Re: MQTT Client

It depends on how the brightness is being set. WMI could very well be altering the output stream from the video card. and not setting the actual brightness level of the screen. there is a very large difference. The only way you would be able to know is if you had EG draw a completely black box that ...

Re: Help! MPC_Home time values stopped working

no worries. the script you posted is missing pieces. So what I need you to do is it take a screen shot of the window you are trying to grab the title information from (while it is playing something. I need to see the title on the bar and how the text is formatted in order to fix it.

Re: MQTT Client

OK so it is working. I am thinking that your screen does not support it directly. Are you using a Laptop? If it is a laptop it could be something the laptop designer made in a way that the brightness is not controlled by the screen but instead by some other mechanism. You have to remember that these...
