The EventGhost Short Manual is a good place to start if you haven't read it already, and also the other documentation.redsix wrote:Can someone please point me at the correct documentation to help me overcome my problems?
Unfortunately some configuration is needed always in EventGhost, as it supports a lot of options and devices so it can't just know how you expect it to work. Unless you find a ready made config that matches your hardware/software.and from what I have read on here I expected it to 'just work'
Assuming you are getting the correct events from your remote, there are several ways to get to the home screen, if you want a button to always get you home wherever you are in XBMC, you need to assign a button event to XBMC2\Windows\Home.but I have a few simple tasks that I cannot achieve. For instance, I find it impossible to return to the xmbc home screen from anywhere,
If you assign most of your remote buttons to actions in the XBMC2\Buttons\Remote folder, then using the XBMC2\Buttons\Remote\Menu and XBMC2\Buttons\Remote\Back or even the XBMC2\Buttons\Remote\Info buttons should get you out of the info screen.and if I am in a movie information screen, I have to unlimber the keyboard to get back out of it! Simple stuff, I'm sure, but baffling me just now!
Nice, I've been waiting for the PVR support in XBMC for a long time.zian wrote:I just started using XBMC with PVR/DVR functionality (live TV, EPG, Set recordings etc) and it's pretty friggin' neat.
Unfortunately I can't test as I didn't get XBMC to connect to MythTV. But it sounds like you should be looking at the (XBMC system dir)\system\keymaps\remote.xml, there seems to be many new sections for PVR related control.Is there any chance that a category for live TV or EPG View could be added to XBMC2?
Such as... If live TV is playing my normal XBMC Pause remote button would fire a different macro (show OSD, 1 click right, enter... Just an example).
And so on.
e = activate EPG = XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 31,0, 10,0)
h = activate TV = XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 32,0, 11,0)
j = activate Radio = XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 33,0, 12,0)
k = activate Recordings = XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 34,0, 13,0)
b = activate Search = XBMC.ActivateWindowAndFocus(MyPVR, 35,0, 14,0)
XBMC2\Buttons\Remote\Recorded TV should work.zian wrote:At the link you gave it shows the graph...
Button String | Button On Original XBOX Remote | Button On Media Extender Remote | Remote Code (Shown with <loglevel>)
and for this one action...
recordedtv | N/A | Recorded TV | 154
I don't have a Media Extender Remote (I use X10 Firefly)... Would I have to use that 154 Remote Code somehow?
Thanks.and one hella awesome plugin.
Thanks, and damn soon it's three years when I started to work on the plugin.spitz66 wrote:Thanks for a great plugin! I've used it for a couple of years now and it works really well.
Sorry didn't see any pause related new action. I'll check if I can find other missing actions and hopefully get the PVR functionality to work to test. But don't know when.A question regarding the PVR actions added, did you add an action for "pause"? I don't know what action XBMC use in the OSD for Live TV to pause.
Just overwrite the plugin in Plugins\XBMCRepeat dir, and you will probably need to change the GUID in your EventGhost config, look here.Another maybe silly question is if there's an easy way to update your plugin so that I don't have to copy all my events to a new tree?
I'm for the moment using v0.6.3...
