Re: Xbox One Remote Power?

It looks like this will work, and to test it I ran this script really quick without adjusting my IP or XBOX ID, and I didn't get any errors in EG so it should work. Try doing this just to see if we get lucky. Copy and pasts this as a python script in EG after you adjust the script for the IP address...

Re: My Home Theater build progress

I played around with paint.net a little, and tried to come up with something that matches the look of my WMC theme. I still have to adjust some of the effects but here is what I came up with. This mimics my background, and startup animation. Capture.JPG I'll have to send you a .pnd file once everyth...

Re: My Home Theater build progress

I can get events for individual channels in the form of track names, where the track name would be the channel number, and sometimes episode titles but not series titles. For Movies, I get something to the effect of streaming content=true ( My movies are located on a network share), and a media titl...

Re: My Home Theater build progress

I have the screen itself plugged in and working, I'm just looking for ways to expand it's functionality to include things like cover art. I didn't see those updated it drivers though so I'll take a look

Just feel the need to say that those lazy boys are awesome. I love my setup, but they alone put mine to shame!
Thanks bud. Everyone really likes the couches. We actually got those last year on black friday

Re: My Home Theater build progress

I looked around some, and the usb connection is just for the touchscreen, and it has a VGA output cable plugged into my video cable. I don't know how easy it is to add things to the existing software. I think most of the styling can be created by finding the right backgrounds, fonts, and things like...

Re: My Home Theater build progress

The screen actually just appears as a second monitor without an application to control but I'm not sure if it HAS to mirror the primary display. There is a small box in the case that I think has something to do with controlling the screen, and if I remember correctly I had to hook up a USB header to...

Re: My Home Theater build progress

So I FINALLY got around to painting the windows (Along with a few other things around the house), and hanging curtains. I'll have likely have to try running those wires under the carpet at some point but I think I have decided I want to install a gear rack on the back wall between those couches. I f...

More free, effective python tutorials

I have been searching for cheap or free resources that I can use to learn python. I have tried a few different coding websites, including Udemy but these seem to be the most promising so far. With most of other classes I have tried, I either get to a point where I have to start paying, or the classe...

Re: Samsung Smart TV Plus

Maybe you can take a look at some recent DMCA exemptions for abandonware. Basically if an appliance security measure interferes with the owners ability to operate the equipment in it's original form then it MIGHT be legal to break into it. There was some press recently about how it is now legal to c...

Re: Samsung Smart TV Plus

While I wholeheartedly agree with your conclusions about Samsung, I'll point out that the fridge with a tablet in it works much better than I expected. The best thing about it so far is the web browser. While I wouldn't like this browser on any other device it is great for pulling up web pages like ...

Re: Best plugin/app for remote playback

Look at MPC HC. I know there is an option to save resume points and you might be able to get rid of the old by removing the graphics files from their folders. It also has an option for splash screens if need be including one that is just a black screen. You can also specify custom splash screens. I ...

Re: Best plugin/app for remote playback

If your going to use Plex, then I would first confirm that plex is going to resume your first video where it left off after it has been interrupted. Second I would also make sure that plex doesn't apply any overlays when the video first starts because I'm assuming you want the focus to only be the v...
