Re: Remote Desktop (RDP) issue with Speak

as a first time setup you will have to have a keyboard, mouse and monitor attached. Set up windows to auto login with the user account you want (directions can be had by googling). then you will not have a need to use VNC. again i do not know if the use of VNC might cause some side effects. doing t...

Re: Remote Desktop (RDP) issue with Speak

See if I can give an update and if I am using this new functionality as intended. As mentioned I do not have a KVM on this computer. So I installed VNC to gain access to the console. I guess this could be a resolution to my issue except I did not want to use VNC but RDP, I then installed the RDP wra...

Re: Remote Desktop (RDP) issue with Speak

OK we are currently working on a solution to the whole issue with RDP. I think we may have gotten one. It is going to produce an event at the startup of EG letting you know what user is logged in. you will be able to perform tasks based on this information. There is a "Hack" well not really but it ...

Re: Remote Desktop (RDP) issue with Speak

Fantastic. I am half way there as I use a dedicated account and it is set to logon at startup.

Re: Remote Desktop (RDP) issue with Speak

Sorry that I was not clear. I have a workstation with Windows 10 and eventghost running on it. It has a sound card and speakers connected to it. I use RDP to connect to this workstation as it is a headless computer. When I connect with RDP I disable pass through sound. All sound works properly and p...

Remote Desktop (RDP) issue with Speak

I tried to find this one but was not having any luck. Hopefully someone has a solution. The short is speak does not work when the RDP connection is disconnected.. not logged off. Everything else works in eventghost but the sound. If I remain connected to the RDP session all sound works correctly. I ...

Re: Trying to get the best approach

Thanks so much. I just used the non threading way you provided and it works perfectly. That is just what I was looking for.

Re: Trying to get the best approach

So I have figured out how to pass variables to another macro. Using eventtrigger and payload. It processes all this just fine. I just need to figure a way to pass back to the calling script. Is there something like myvariable = eg.TriggerEvent(eventid, prefix="Alexa", payload=["check", "status"]) Or...

Re: Trying to get the best approach

When I get home I will key up an example for you. It's rather difficult to code from a cell phone. But because of how EG works it's going to be semi complicated. I need s better understand of how you want everything laid out. You want to basically call a script from inside of another script and hav...

I have been searching through the forum for days now.. but still not sure what approach to take. My thought is to have a master python script that figures out what I sent to it ( this for the Amazon Echo integration) Then based on what I decide, call another macro/script. Get the results returned th...
