Cancel processing of a macro if a program stops responding

I'm using Eventghost to control XBMC. Occasionally XBMC takes a dump and stops responding. Eventghost stays stuck trying to send an xbmc plugin command (the icon stays yellow) until I manually kill the XBMC process. Is there a way for eventghost to check if a program has stopped responding and cance...

Re: Plugin to Remap Remote Control Events

That is possible, but I was looking for a GUI Implementation that asks you to press your key and then goes through the script and finds the specific key-flag and switches it to the pressed key.

Plugin to Remap Remote Control Events

Maybe something like this exists, but I am looking for a plugin to remap remote control events, like a plugin that says press up, down, left, right, dvd play, stop etc. and that will go through the currently loaded xml and replace all the remote triggers with the newly mapped ones.

Transmit IR Intermittent working problems

I'm having a problem with using Transmit IR, I learn the codes for my receiver box, and I can click the test button and it works my receiver perfectly EVERY TIME i click it, even if I click very rapidly. After I assign a remote event to trigger it though, it only triggers the receiver once every 5-1...

Re: USB-UIRT won't wake Windows 7 from sleep

thanks, and I'll check that Typhoid, but Windows XP (x86) has no problem waking from sleep, could it be because I'm running Win 7 x64?

Re: EventGhost and PC idle timer *need some ideas*

What about wildcards that are part of the suffix, for example: I have one button that sends this signal USB_UIRT.NEC.47388D72 and another that sends USB_UIRT.NEC.47388A88 how would i make one event that would say something like (this obviously doesnt work) USB_UIRT.NEC.47388* that would trigger when...

Re: USB-UIRT + Dish Remote = Many Codes For One Button Push?

is there a way to wildcard parts of events? Thats all thats really needed.

something like:

USB_UIRT.Unknown.7577FFFF*

but that obviously doesn't work in EG.

USB-UIRT won't wake Windows 7 from sleep

I know this isn't an EventGhost problem, but this forum seems pretty active and helpful. I cannot get USB-UIRT to take my cpu out of sleep mode in Windows 7. I have the lrnhelper utility, and programmed the buttons I want to use. The USB-UIRT box lights up whenever I press a button and the PC is sle...

Re: USB-UIRT + Dish Remote = Many Codes For One Button Push?

I'm running through the codes to see which one allows me to use the most buttons on the remote and that EG can decode. If anyone can provide any insight, that would be quite helpful. In the meantime, I'll post results when I get them.

Re: USB-UIRT + Dish Remote = Many Codes For One Button Push?

Well that sucks, considering how widespread this remote is. This remote controls nearly everything else (and its a great layout) so I really need to keep using it. Is there a specific VCR / AUX code that works well for EG that I could program into my dish remote?

Re: USB-UIRT + Dish Remote = Many Codes For One Button Push?

A little more information: I'm using a dish network 5.3 IR remote, the codes seem to change depending on the angle of the remote as well, so I might have 25 codes at one angle, then another different set of codes at another. Is there a way to wildcard parts of an event in eventghost, so any code sta...

USB-UIRT + Dish Remote = Many Codes For One Button Push?

I'm having trouble setting up eventghost and USB-UIRT with my dish network remote. Each button seems to have about 15+ codes (single press and tons of hold codes), and theres no multiple copy/paste function in EG, so I have to drag and drop each single code to make sure the one button works when pus...

How to wait for Program to close before continuing a macro?

This isn't about using "Wait till application is terminated before proceeding", as I need to run commands after the program is open.

I want to open a program, run a few items after its opened, then wait until it closes before continuing the macro, how do I do this?

Re: Send Command line parameters to a Macro Program?

Disregard the last post, I merely had to put quotes around the {eg.event.payload[0]}, everythings working fine now, thanks for the help!
