Re: Philips Hue plugin

Hi,

I added some minor fixes for when the Hue Bridge isn't connectable. The connection timeout is now 1s (not the 30s default), and the errors are handled better. In my case, this was causing EG to block completely until the timeout finished. Code update attched.

Sam.

New(ish) Marantz Ethernet Control Plugin - add to EG Distro?

Hi, I (with help from 'puppet') wrote a plugin for controlling Marantz receivers via TCP/ethernet a few years ago. The code and discussion around it lives here: http://www.eventghost.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5498&hilit=Marantz+TCP It looks like a few people, myself included, have been using it ...

Re: USB-UIRT stops working ... Anyway to send reset?

In case anyone is interested, I was getting a similar 'Device not found' error from the USB-UIRT, except for me, this happened whenever my PC came out of sleep or hibernate. Manually disabling the USB-UIRT device in Windows Device Manager and restarting EventGhost fixed it, but no other combination ...

Re: New Marantz TCP Control Plugin

I'm glad it worked for you. All status replies that come back from the receiver are turned directly into EventGhost events. For example: MarantzTCPPlugin.@VOL:-210 means the receiver has been set to -21.0dB, and MarantzTCPPlugin.SIDVD means the input was set to DVD. You should see this in the EG log...

Re: Interest in LAN / HTTP / Ethernet control of Denon/Maran

G'Day,

I've postwritten ed a pretty basic Marantz TCP plugin here viewtopic.php?f=9&t=5498
It does volume and mute out of the box, and you can send other commands by just looking them up in the command spec.

Hope that helps,
-Sam.

Re: Marantz SR Receiver

Hi, I've written a fairly quick and dirty Marantz TCP (ethernet) plugin that might do the trick. Only volume commands are implemented specifically at the moment, but there's also a customisable command which you can use to implement arbitrary commands from the command list. See http://www.eventghost...

New Marantz TCP Control Plugin

Hi all, I've written a plugin to control Marantz (and possibly Denon) receivers via a TCP connection, for receivers which have ethernet or wifi. It's pretty basic, and just lets you: a) control the receiver's volume b) send other arbitrary commands (see command specs below) c) sync the windows syste...

Re: How to use Event Payload as Action Parameter

Sweet, thanks for that Pako, the SmartSpinIntCtrl got it working :) I'll post the plugin in a new thread when I've tested/polished it a bit. If anyone is interested in doing the same thing, here's my working plugin code: class SetVolumeAbsolute(eg.ActionBase): ... def __call__(self, volume): return ...

How to use Event Payload as Action Parameter

I'm trying to write a plugin which will take my System.Volume's payload (ie the volume percentage) and pass it as a parameter to an Action in my plugin (so it will set my receiver's volume to the same level). For example, I want to get the '28.00' bit from an event like: System.Volume '28.00' And ca...
