Python 3.7

Now that Python 2.7 support has ended, are there any immediate plans to update EventGhost to use Python 3.x? I tried the latest beta; however, it's still using Python 2.7.

Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEventGhost

Yes, setup is easy.. but, you won't have access to the thousands of awesome Alexa skills which integrate very well with 3rd party services; especially, music services. Also, you can't really compare a cheap lapelier microphone against 4-8 far-field microphone arrays available on Amazon 3rd gen Echo ...

After upgrading to version 0.5.0-rc6 HTTP webserver events need to be renamed

In the last stable release version 0.4, the webserver would trigger/generate events in the log called like: SamsungTV-OFF ..after sending an HTTP GET to the webserver. Now, the events are called: HTTP.SamsungTV-OFF It's not a big deal, but I have to rename all my webserver events to start with HTTP....

Re: Google Assistant ---> EventGhost events

Thanks I actually already use IFTTT for many automations; including sending http webhooks to my EventGhost webserver. I really don't like the idea of involving my clunky mobile phone or a web browser; especially, since I already have a dedicated Windows server (which also runs EventGhost) ...and pre...

EventGhost_0.5.0-rc6 web server broken or changed?

I just upgraded from EventGhost_0.4.1.r1722 to EventGhost_0.5.0-rc6. It looks like something either changed or broke with the web server plugin. After the EG webserver receives an HTTP get command, the respective EG event SHOULD trigger the associated USB-UIRT IR EG action . If I revert back to Even...

Google Assistant ---> EventGhost events

I was able to successfully setup EchoToEventGhost to have Amazon Alexa trigger EventGhost Events (thanks to creator of EchoToEventGhost): http://www.eventghost.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7429&f=2#p54675 However, I'm curious if anyone has done the same thing with Google Assistant. I searched but, coul...

Re: Brand new to EventGhost - Turning on Samsung TV

I just wanted to report back. I swapped out my old MCE IR with a new USB-UIRT (with 56KHz IR sensor). That thing works great as an IR "blaster" . It's able to reliably/quickly control ANY of my IR devices BETTER than the original IR remote controls. Plus, it's able to receive IR commands just as goo...

Re: Brand new to EventGhost - Turning on Samsung TV

I made some really good progress for my tests. I added the web server plugin so I could control my TV via Cortana (using ifttt.com). Now, I can say "Cortana, Turn on my TV" .... "Cortana, Turn off my TV" ... or "Cortana, Turn off AC" . I got the idea from: https://www.reddit.com/r/ifttt/comments/5bo...

Re: Brand new to EventGhost - Turning on Samsung TV

Awesome! Thanks again. I'll get to play with this tomorrow when I get my extender emitters tomorrow in the mail. If it works well, I'm going to swap out the MCE IR base with a USB-UIRT.

Re: Brand new to EventGhost - Turning on Samsung TV

I totally forgot! My old USB-UIRT had a builtin blaster right in the IR receiver. It actually worked pretty well. It looks like EventGhost supports the USB-UIRT anyway. I think maybe you didn't understand what I was asking about command-line capability. I want to be able to do something like: EventG...

Re: Brand new to EventGhost - Turning on Samsung TV

Okay, I got it setup. However, my MCE IR device didn't come with IR emitters. I just ordered a couple generic IR extenders from Amazon. I was at least able to test IR code learning.. which works fine. I have a couple of questions... 1. So, how do I trigger the two actions I created below via command...

Re: Brand new to EventGhost - Turning on Samsung TV

Thanks a lot for all the info guys. I'm ready to start. I have a few more questions: 1. Which IR receiver/blaster can I use that doesnt require installing a windows service or dll? I'd prefer a device that I can use that only needs a Windows 10 64bit driver only. 2. Is there a command-line utility I...

Re: Brand new to EventGhost - Turning on Samsung TV

@kgschlosser thank you so much for the quick and helpful response. Honestly, I was expecting my post might go unnoticed. I have a Samsung is actually considered old these days... Model: UN55D8000 It's possible I dont remember correctly... and, remote codes would flip-flop back and forth between 2 co...

Brand new to EventGhost - Turning on Samsung TV

For many years, I used a USB-UIRT with Girder to control various appliances. However, I never could get it to reliably turn on my Samsung TV. For whatever reason, Samsung TV's seem to cycle through multiple IR codes for each remote control button. So, pressing the Power button produces a different I...
