Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

Ohh, ok, that's an interesting use case of the "Get IR Code" function by the way, I wasn't thinking of that while programming it :D I think I'll add a short delay in the plugin, if that fixes it. Thank you! My use case is: On pressing button X on remote control Send IR Tv on (I now add a wait 1s be...

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

I think I found the problem.

I was using the plugin to wait for an IR code from the remote, than send back an IR to the TV. Seems trying to blast IR right after receiving IR bugs.

Solution was to add a wait 1s after receiving the IR code before blasting the new one. Seems stable so far.

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

After some testing, EG receives some UNKNOWNS from time to time, and also, when it is sending IR, the arrow becomes yellow sometimes, and eventually it goes back to green. Does not happen every time. Very odd.

Is there some rule to follow when sending multiple IR codes back to back?

Re: Microsoft MCE Remote - Vista and newer

Has anyone noticed EG with this plugin become slow over time? I leave the htpc on 24/7, but it goes to sleep at night, after a while, this plugin (or EG?) becomes very slow to respond. Ex: I press a key on the remote, there is a maybe 20 secs delay before the programmed IR codes are sent back to the...

Re: webserver plugin for beginners

Is there some example code to GET something from eventghost and display it on the webpage (example, current song that is playing in an app)?

Re: Getting song info from iTunes and displaying it?

For Itunes, there is the Remote App free in the store which works pretty well. I know it is not what you want to hear, but it works much better than a eventghost plugin IMHO.

Re: Remote Jr. - iPhone/iPod Touch Client for EventGhost

Agreed.

I would suggest you beta this app for a while before asking for money. How well will it work? Is it faster than the web server plugin, etc.

That being said, I'm grateful you're designing this app.

Here is how to change monitors in Windows 7

Great shortcut:
C:\Windows\System32\DisplaySwitch.exe /internal
C:\Windows\System32\DisplaySwitch.exe /external

Switches between your main monitor and your tv out. Neat for remote operation.

Can we emulate WIN+SHIFT+LEFT ?

Hi,

Is it possible to emulate the WIN+Shift+left (or right) that do great things in windows 7?

They send the active window to the next monitor.

Thank you

Re: Anyone use Webserver extensively?

Do you mean like: If application X is running, then items Y and Z are shown on the web page? Personnally, that's what I'd like to do. Like if you have a PLAY feature on your webpage, it only appears when the player is running on the PC (or even just some status indicator that an application is runni...

Re: iPhone optimized web remote control for Webserver plugin

Fantastic UI. Using this to control pretty much everything on the PC now. What should I look into in order to add a status check to the UI? It is super easy adding commands to be sent to Eventghost. Is it complicated asking questions and receiving an answer? EX: Is MediaMonkey open? If yes, then cha...

Microsoft MCE remote plugin - trying to learn IR freezes?

Hi,

Everytime I try to learn an IR command using the MCE remote plugin, the application kindof freezes for about 10 seconds (not responding) and nothing appears in the "IR code" window.

Any ideas? Using the latest beta.

Thanks, great application!!!

I was wondering how to use the Get information macros? Namely, the get next track info.

Thank you
