Re: The preservation of EventGhost

Maybe we can find a way to recreate those. With whatever updates you have made the list of issues, and pull requests might be a little smaller. Maybe I can set aside a week or so to fill them all back in for the fork and then someone can update or close them as needed

Re: The preservation of EventGhost

It looks like you can create issues on a forked GitHub repo if I understand the problem correctly. https://softwareengineering.stackexchange.com/questions/179468/forking-a-repo-on-github-but-allowing-new-issues-on-the-fork I haven't looked at how many there are but I could try to sort through them a...

Re: Google Assistant ---> EventGhost events

I remember looking into ifttt for something like this and it's probably possible but I never got too far with it.

Re: The preservation of EventGhost

I can sit on some credentials if need be. I think at the very least it would be nice to get the Github page working again so you can add your improvements.

Re: Wiring a nano dimmer with only a black wire?

I went to a few hardware stores over the weekend and looked at bulbs. I didn't find much at lowe's that wasn't LED but home depot had a pretty good selection of incandescent bulbs. In particular the ecosmart bulbs in a blue box had a few different color temps, and wattages and I was able to find my ...

Re: Can an AURC-002 MCE or HP MCE transmit IR codes?

I have the HP remote, and I think the receiver. I can tell you the HP remote itself cannot learn or transmit new codes, and it will only transmit the MCE codes. The other light gray remote I'm not sure about, and I have seen remotes like the gray one come with IR learning capabilities, where you can...

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

I don't know if its the best way to do this but maybe you could use disable an item at the end of your powerup sequence, then tell EG to wait some time, then at the end of said time, re-enable your item. So the IR blasts would fire, then disable their own macro, count to sixty for example, then the ...

Re: Wiring a nano dimmer with only a black wire?

I appreciate the offer for your switches but I think I'll need the option to use LED bulbs. Not really because I think they're better but because it seems to be easier to find the bulb color temp I like in LED. Here are a few more questions I have though -If I grab a GE dimmer for the lights, will I...

Re: Wiring a nano dimmer with only a black wire?

One more thing I forgot to say, I believe the nano dimmer can only power 140 watts before it has issues. I'm not sure if that would be enough for both the fan, and the lights or if the fan will even draw power from it.

Re: Wiring a nano dimmer with only a black wire?

Hey, I just want to say thanks for your help so far. I'm waiting on a good time to kill power to that room in order to pull all of those switches out and give you some good pictures. I'll look into getting some actual switches but I would rather not spend too much more money on it. I will say that r...

Wiring a nano dimmer with only a black wire?

I grabbed an Aeotec nano dimmer so that I can dim my lights via EG, and the ZWave plugin. I though the installation of said dimmer would be straight forward enough having done a little bit of electrical works but its not as obvious as I had hoped. The switch I would like to place the nanodimer behin...

Re: Z-Wave

I have a few light fixtures to hang and a nanoswitch to install but hopefully by the end of this week I'll have enough zwave gear collected up to make it useful. My needs should be pretty simple and if you have something functional I can test it soon. If not I can install what have based on open zwa...

Re: Support for XBMC2 plugin (formerly XBMCRepeat)

I use emby for kodi, and I'm wondering how I should use this plugin to send the following command to kodi via EG

ActivateWindow(10025,videodb://movies/titles/,return)

Thanks for the help, and Merry Christmas.

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

KG, after moving to windows 10 I think this will be extremely useful for me. Will this negate the need to disable driver signing enforcement before using MCE blasters and receivers? There are some games that won't run on machines that have driver signing disabled because it is needed for anti-cheat ...

Re: Pulse-Eight CEC +

It's not specific to this but I have entirely removed visual c packages after installing software and I still do about half of the time. At times the program won't run without it and others a specific component I don't need might break. If my PC is acting a little sloggish those are one of the first...
