Re: EventGhost programmed Remote Control

If you want eventghost to send IR commands to external devices on Windows 10 then you also have to consider what hardware you will need to use to send IR Blasts. The two options I know of are the Microsoft MCE IR receivers, and Global cache devices. In the past, I have always had to disable driver s...

Re: How to get codec of Audio Stream now playing (possibly with mpc-hc plugin or preferably in general).

I skipped over the part where you explain your using MPC-HC, sorry. Either way, If you have MPC configured to use LAV, which appear to use some implementation of FFMPEG, then EG might be able to probe that for either the codec info, or the video endcoder/decoder being used. I hope that helps. It wou...

Re: New to all this

If you only want to use your computer as the server then you should be good. If you want to use your ZWave devices while your computer is off, then something like the arduino, or RasPI might help. You will also have to invest some of your time in this so its not just a financial commitment. I have t...

Re: How to get codec of Audio Stream now playing (possibly with mpc-hc plugin or preferably in general).

What video player or audio player are you using? If its a video then my best guess would be either via a plugin for FFMpeg, or Media Info. I'm not sure if anyone has written either one of those. Minus a plugin for something like that if the now playing info is written to a log somewhere, then maybe ...

Re: New to all this

It LOOKS like that plug will work but i don't know of anyone that can confirm that it will. Speaking to what Sem;colon said about a gateway, you will need something like this https://www.amazon.com/Aeotec-Z-Stick-Z-Wave-create-gateway/dp/B00X0AWA6E/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=zstick&qid=1608053839&...

Re: OK/Apply button greyed out when adding MCE (Vista) Plugin.

Which version of eg are you using and which version of windows are you on? You might want to have a look in the plugins forum where there is a dedicated thread for the new mce remote Vista + plugin. In that thread there is an updated version of eg that you might like.

Re: Infrared over WiFi

I grabbed a used global cache wifi2ir about a year ago but I had issues with setting it up on WIndows 10. I had trouble connecting to its little internal web server, and I figured I would grab a ir to ethernet instead. It might be worth trying the wifi adapter for yourself though.

Re: EventGhost as a service

Why not create a scheduled task that starts EG when the computer starts up as mentioned earlier in this thread? If you want to use an external program anyway, then you can look at the Non sucky service manager, or NSSM as well.

Re: Help.. how OSD not working with Japanese fonts

This is a wild guess but I would make sure the Japanese language pack is installed on your PC. You might also need a Japanese don't pack.

Show OSD Customization options

I was looking at ways to restore desktop gadgets or install something like rainmeter on Windows 10. I wanted something that gives me a quick reference to whatever information I need but mostly stays out of the way. I would like to have something that is always there but doesn't grab my attention. Th...

Re: Support for XBMC2 plugin (formerly XBMCRepeat)

Jonib, with some help from KG, I got the double press thing figured out. This might be everything I need to get my remote working the way I would like. For anyone who reads this I essentially had to break a few keys in Kodi's keymap.xml files, and map them via EG. I learned that Kodi will search ALL...

Re: Jump if double event with else statement?

Kevin, it looks like that XML folder you gave me will work great. It also kind of gave me a new look at how to solve problems but I'm still trying to wrap my head around exactly how it works.

Re: Jump if double event with else statement?

Alright, I'm not getting any errors now but I don't understand the e.TriggerEvent statement because I haven't worked with prefix or suffix. I'm not entirely sure how to fill these out so you might have to bear with me a little here. The macro I want to fire on single presses looks like this in the l...

Re: Jump if double event with else statement?

Alright, here is my first shot at filling things in. I'm not sure if I filled out the prefix, and suffix just right but I'm trying to call a specific action from a plugin, and not a macro like the current jump if double event. If I need to create a macro to jump to then thats fine also but I want to...

Jump if double event with else statement?

I would like to tell eventghost to perform a given action if an event occurs twice within a given period of time. I can already do this via the jump if double event plugin however, I would like to perform a different action if my same event only occurs once within the same time period. I plan to use...
