eg stops getting events from usb-uirt

Something strange is happening from time to time. EG stops getting events from usb-uirt. Restarting EG issues an error initializing the usb-uirt. indows device manager say that the uirt is enabled and is working fine. What helps is unplugging/replugging the usb-uirt, then restarting EG and it all wo...

Re: Slow webserver-plugin?

I second the question. Webserver plugin is very slow.
I thing the do_GET() function can be optimized, or, instead of relying on httpBaseServer use something else altogether.

Re: webserver problem

Thanks, I'm going to try this.
I solved the caching problem using an http-equiv expires=-1,
and the page reloading using jsquery/ajax. But your solution looks much slimmer and more elegant.

BTW, I uploaded my project to google-code at http://code.google.com/p/eventghost-web-remote/

Re: The plugin forum does not display "new topic" button

That's a good answer, except there's no thread for the webserver plugin
(there's one for the dynamic webserver, but my issue is with the standard one)

Re: webserver problem

Well, I started debugging webserver, and from what I see, the fault is probably the browser's. It seems that safari on the ipad caches pages. e.g caches my remote.html?back page, so when I hit the link again, it does not issue a get request to the webserver, and although the page seemingly loads fin...

webserver problem

I'm using EG 0.3.7.1562. windows XP. I configured the webserver plugin, set up a page with an area map for my remote (see below), and configured its events to macros. I then stopped EG, and started it again. However, now I don't get any HTTP events from the webserver plugin. I know the webserver is ...

The plugin forum does not display "new topic" button

I'd like to post a question there, but I can't. So I posted this here, and I'll post my question here as well.

Control through web server

I have an ipad, and would love to be able to control through EG (I'm using EG with gbpvr, as well as to blast external devices). I have no intention writing code for the ipad, however, an idea came to me, develop a web page, serve it from the windows pc that runs EG. Open the web page from a browser...

Re: Remote issues 2 events per button

You are absolutely right. The STB is out of site.
I want to use EG and the blaster to "pass through" its events.
The blasting is actually working fine - I checked by macroing
the learned codes with a simple remote. But I want the original
STB remote to work as well.

Remote issues 2 events per button

Using EG 0.3.6.14, windows XP Got a new set top box, with a new remote. I'm trying to teach EG to blast. The problem I have is that each button on the remote issues 2 events. If I use only one of the events, some other keys blast the same code. Can I create a blast macro that will wait on the 2 inco...

Re: bluetooth remote

I have connected the phone to the bluetooth stack. I added it as a generic HID device.
EG receives continuous event from the phone.
How do I generate other events?

I guess I need some java app that will issue HID events over BT. Anyone
knows of such an app?

bluetooth remote

I would like to use bluetooth for remote control. I searched the forums and discovered the PS3 remote control plugin. Great. However, I don't have a PS3 remote. I could buy one, or some other generic BT remote (are there any???). And then I found a question about FMA - some project for controlling a...

Re: Transmit IR code format different from receive IR format

If we could get the long code list for a given remote, it should be very easy to create a repeater function without the annoying setup: for each long code generate the short code, save both in a table. When you get a short code, find it in the table and blast the long code. Now, where can we get the...

Re: A place for example configurations?

How about using the wiki to post these configs?
