Re: libCEC plugin for Pulse Eight HDMI-CEC usb adapter

Got it working! But had to dig a little deeper. None of the remote control pass through codes would work for me. Not sure why. I tried several source/destination combinations to no avail. I was able to debug a bit with the cec tray app. Below is the relevant portion of the log from the cec tray app ...

Re: libCEC plugin for Pulse Eight HDMI-CEC usb adapter

What do you mean by "remote button emulation"? Here is a screenshot of the response from the status request - https://www.dropbox.com/s/wp9l40l8iu7o101/Photo%20Jun%2029%2C%204%2057%2049%20PM.jpg The first request was while the tv was on, and the second was when it was off. Interestingly the tv does ...

Re: libCEC plugin for Pulse Eight HDMI-CEC usb adapter

First off, thanks for writing this plugin. I've been able to get it integrated with my eventghost config but have been running into trouble with the TvOn command. TvOff works just fine though. I've tried manually sending the "on 0" command via eventghost but still no go. With both TvOn methods I thi...

Re: VNC Keyboard Events

Cool, I'll play around with that plugin too. As for the cascading keypress, I understand why they would happen on a real keyboard, I just would expect VNC to directly send only the final command, it must artificially insert delays. For repeating keys, it does behave like the standard plugin. Is ther...

Re: VNC Keyboard Events

Things are looking better. No debug statements and I can correctly trigger macros. The same cascading multiple key thing happens though. Only the longest key combo actually gets sent to the system, but SimKey reports the others. Also, it doesn't look like repeated keys sent from VNC are captured thr...

Re: VNC Keyboard Events

Got it, yeah I was wrong about the trapping, I forgot you had to have a macro associated. I'll test the new plugin and get back to you. Thanks!

Re: VNC Keyboard Events

Also, multiple button presses aren't picked up ideally. For example,

Pressing LShift+LCtrl+LAlt+E looks like

SimKey.LCtrl
SimKey.LShift+LCtrl
SimKey.LShift+LCtrl+LAlt
SimKey.LShift+LCtrl+LAlt+E
SimKey.LShift+LCtrl+LAlt
SimKey.LShift+LCtrl
SimKey.LCtrl

Re: VNC Keyboard Events

Brett, Thanks a lot for working on this. I don't have a EventGhost\Extensions folder, so I put that pyd file in EventGhost\lib26\site-packages. This got the SimKey plugin to load, and recognize keys, but it does have some issues. I see lots of "Simkey info = 0" when I press simulated keys, and it al...

Re: VNC Keyboard Events

Do you know when that C code gets compiled? Is it at runtime?

Update - I don't seem to have that directory. I guess you are looking at the source code. Maybe I'll make a build with statically setting that to False. Probably a bad idea...

Re: Keyboard plugin and emulated keystrokes

Cool. Let me know if you find the old version. iInterface looks cool, but HippoRemote is simpler, does exactly what I need and the gui looks nicer IMO. Custom profiles are in beta right now, but they work very well. Designing custom buttons will take some effort though as buttons aren't broken out i...

Re: Keyboard plugin and emulated keystrokes

Any idea which version this worked in? Which iPhone app are you working with? Getting the new Keyboard plugin to support emulated keypresses would be great, that's my goal as well, but we may have to talk with BitMonster about that.

Re: VNC Keyboard Events

Ok, I can see where in the keyboard hook you can see if the keypress is simulated or not. Could you point me to this? The problem I was having with CPU usage was related to the number of EventGhost processes that would get spawned when using EventGhost.exe -e MyEvent. When you held a keypress down,...

Re: Keyboard plugin and emulated keystrokes

Search is your friend. Check my post, as Stottle pointed out, it has a decent workaround. There is currently no solution, the Keyboard plugin just doesn't recognize emulated keystrokes. You probably don't need that many key combos, so my workaround doesn't take that much time to implement. Thanks, D...

Re: VNC Keyboard Events

Using the functions provided by ws4ahk.ahk available at http://www.autohotkey.net/~easycom/ I was able to get the cpu usage down to levels on par with the Keyboard plugin. Again and again, it's a hacky workaround, but it works :D AutoHotKey code snippet: #Include ws4ahk.ahk WS_Initialize() EG_Initia...

Re: VNC Keyboard Events

Well I got the cpu usage down considerably with some VBscript inside of AHK. I'd love to use python directly, but I found much more information about VBS embedded in AHK than embedded python. I'll post my AHK script later tonight or tomorrow once I iron some kinks out. Again, this is very much a wor...
