I have to finish up making an update to the plugin. the most recent version was only on the forum. I did not have it locally. I am making the changes now.

I'm asking for advice.
How to configure the plugin to control audio directly on a TV? I don't have an AVR, there are HTPC with a CEC-adapter and a TV.
I'm using the 0.4.7b plugin version from the recent message.
I've tried to toggle the AVR Audio option in the plugin settings, I've tried to use Toggle Mute and Send Mute actions - the TV doesn't react.

I have the following sequence of events:

Code: Select all

Main.OnInit
   Resume
      Pulse-Eight CEC+: Power On TV: Adapter: Pioneer on COM3
         CEC: Adapter Pioneer on com port COM3 not found
PulseEight.Adapter.Pioneer.Connected
Do I need to wait for the Connected event before sending CEC-commands? It would be inconvenient to wait.

controlling audio directly on the TV you need to use the remote buttons.

Remote button Volume Up and Down.

also can you provide me with a screen shot of the events you are questioning. I am trying to picture what they are but seeing the Main.OnInit and then the Resume i am getting confused with.

OK never mind about the last part of my last message.

You are having EG perform a specific action when EG starts up....

I do not remember if I set up the plugin to generate an event when it connects or if it is just a message So I will still need the screen shot.

ok i did some looking I do generate an event for when the device is connected. Unfortunately no matter how I set up the actions it is always going to have to wait until it is connected. There is no way around that. I am not in control of how fast the thing is able to make the connection to the adapter. You will have to use the connected event instead of the Main.OnInit event to do whatever it is you want to do.

Hello, i like this new version of the plugin, my only issue is that, i have 2 hdmi connected to my pc
1) going to the avr for audio
2) going to the tv for video
i had to use this configuration becouse my avr doesn't support HDR, and audio straight to tv doesn't support 5.1 uncompressed audio

my cec adapter always picks up the wrong hdmi, so my tv switches to the avr channel instead of using the direct one.

When i use the cec tray panel i flag connected to the tv and everything works. is this feature planned?

thanks in advice

Can someone please give me a hand with which versions I am supposed to be using to get this plugin to work?

I have tried every combination i can think of but I am getting errors.

Either Eventghost crashes completely or my latest attempt using EG 0.5.0 RC6, PlusEightPlus plugin 0.4.7b and LibCEC 4.0.2 taken from the GitHub thread #357 (I've also tried 4.0.3 taken directly from PlusEight) then I get the Python based errors about "DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found" that I thought had been dealt with back in 2017.

Other people seem to be getting this to work but I am having no luck. I must be doing something wrong.

Thanks

you need to uninstall anything related to pulse eight and then install the plugin.

I've tried that - or I think I have. Uninstalled the Pulse-Eight drivers and LibCEC software. Deleted PulseEightPlus plugin folder from Program data. Restarted PC. Reinstalled the plugin 0.4.7b and then tried to install the plugin from Eventghost and I get the following traceback

Error loading plugin file: C:\ProgramData\EventGhost\plugins\PulseEightPlus
Traceback (most recent call last) (0.5.0-rc6):
File "C:\ProgramData\EventGhost\plugins\PulseEightPlus\__init__.py", line 84, in <module>

File "C:\ProgramData\EventGhost\plugins\PulseEightPlus\__cec_core\__init__.py", line 55, in <module>
import cec

File "C:\ProgramData\EventGhost\plugins\PulseEightPlus\__cec_core\cec\__init__.py", line 22, in swig_import_helper
import _cec
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

I so want to get this to work and I really appreciate the work people have put into this but I'm a bit stuck.

I'd be grateful for any help

OK i modified the import system with this one. Let me know if it works.

Here are some directions I need you to follow before installing this one.

In EventGhost if you have pulse eight in your tree i need you to delete it

save and close EventGhost

open Windows Explorer (File Explorer)in the address bar type in

Code: Select all

%programdata%\eventghost\plugins
press enter..

delete any folders that have "PulseEight" in the name

in the address bar type in

Code: Select all

c:\program files (x86)\eventghost\plugins
press enter

delete any folders that have pulse eight in the name

Download the attachment to this post.
Open EventGhost
double click on the downloaded attachment.

No same result I'm afraid with similar but not quite identical errors

Error loading plugin file: C:\ProgramData\EventGhost\plugins\PulseEightPlus
Traceback (most recent call last) (0.5.0-rc6):
File "C:\ProgramData\EventGhost\plugins\PulseEightPlus\__init__.py", line 84, in <module>
from . import __cec_core as cec_core
File "C:\ProgramData\EventGhost\plugins\PulseEightPlus\__cec_core\__init__.py", line 55, in <module>
from . import cec
File "C:\ProgramData\EventGhost\plugins\PulseEightPlus\__cec_core\cec\__init__.py", line 28, in <module>
_cec = swig_import_helper()
File "C:\ProgramData\EventGhost\plugins\PulseEightPlus\__cec_core\cec\__init__.py", line 16, in swig_import_helper
from . import _cec
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.

I did all you said - in fact reinstalled EG 0.5.0 from scratch because I had 0.4 running before (which I uninstalled) just to make sure it wasn't that.

I do appreciate the work you're doing on this.

Best regards

Simon
