Re: Can't save config

Although I have a D:\temp folder that I use for most junk, explorer shows %temp% as C:\Users\terry\AppData\Local\Temp which has 117mb of files in it. The C: drive is 232gb with 191 free. That temp folder DOES have like a thousand zero byte files named like mat-debug-99999.log in it??? So I deleted a...

Trigger a macro from another computer on network?

I'd like to trigger a macro from another computer that's on the same network. I know that I could use the webserver, but that means that on the triggering computer I'd have to start a web browser, navigate to the server's URL, then click a button to send the http event. I'd like to just have a short...

Can't save config

My webserver stopped working and so in the process of checking out the config, I wanted to move the files that are the target of my Webserver plugin, so I changed the folder name then clicked on SAVE. That generated a bunch of errors in the log and the save was not committed. Also, there's some erro...

Re: Log redirector and filter

I'm running v0.1.0 on a Win10 computer. I had it running under Win7 but backed up my C: drive and wiped it clean. Then installed Win10 and EG. I copied the Program Files (x86)\EventGhost folder from my backup to the new hard drive. I initially had errors at startup but changed permissions to everyon...

How to close an app from the system tray

I'm using EG to control all my music and video playback on my HTPC. I'm running FxSound (DFX) which improves the audio quality for my various pc music apps. But I don't like to have it running when I switch to Plex to play a video, so I'd like EG to be able to close it. Unfortunately, there is no fa...

Find Window issue with Chrome

I'm trying to use the Find Window action to close a Chrome browser window that's open to a specific URL. Even if I have multiple windows open with sometimes multiple tabs I can't select the window I want to close. They all show up as: program=chrome.exe name=Chrome Legacy Window Class=Chrome_RenderW...

Roku remote sends 1 or 2 IR events

I'm trying to control my htpc using the remote from a Roku Streaming Stick+. Unfortunately, it appears that the remote "sometimes" sends TWO events (with different numbers). Not ALL the time, though! It could be one or the other or both. Obviously, this won't do because it triggers my macro either o...

Re: The O-MEGA Project

Semi; Wow, I can see you've put a lot of work into this. Just FYI, here's my experience after downloading it: I ran the install.bat. It copied 126 files successfully and opened the gui window saying "Do you want to install plugin...". I clicked OK and the dialog closed, nothing else happened. I fina...

Roku IR event not displaying

I'd like to use my Roku remote control to control my HTPC and Plex Media Player. Getting IR codes from the remote then having EG send keystrokes or other actions to the system. However, most of my buttons on the Roku remote appear as events in the Log column EXCEPT for the power and volume buttons. ...

Some descriptions dim/italic, others normal?

Some of my Configuration items appear in a dimmed, italic font, most appear in a normal Arial black. I can't figure out the pattern in it or what it means. Some actions (like usbuirt) are ALL in this font whereas others (like Jump to and return) are only in this font in a few places. What's this dim...

Re: How to prevent multiple event triggers within brief timeframe?

DO NOT DO THIS!! Wait: 10.0 sec(s) No more then a 2 - 2.5 second wait total for a whole macro. Don't quite understand the point there, but it's now irrelevant. Although your post on filtering events was informative, I found an easy solution: Just place a "Clear Pending Events" action at the end of ...

Re: How to prevent multiple event triggers within brief timeframe?

Thanks for the great idea! I actually did the disable as the very first action to prevent ANY duplicate from re-running then put the wait and enable at the end of the macro. Perfect!

How to prevent multiple event triggers within brief timeframe?

I use EG to control my HTPC. I use a remote control to create an IR event which runs a macro to start Plex, start my projector, etc. On subsequent IR events, the macro checks to see if Plex is active, and if so, shuts it down along with the projector, etc. The problem is, sometimes I will inadverten...

CM11A plugin issues with XTB-232

I replaced my CM11A with the XTB-232 a few weeks ago primarily because the CM11A was hanging on commands every now and then. The XTB-232 has rave reviews for being a better alternative to the CM11A and is available at http://jvde.us/xtb-232.htm It has been a solid replacement and has more signal str...
