The light control features requires that the application can monitor progress of playback - it cannot do that through PowerDVD, which means that this is only supported using TotalMedia Theatre 5 or 6.

Similar, the application is not in control when playing ISO files, meaning it requires the BDMV folder. The software is developed to handle it for ISO files, but only if auto play is disabled in Windows Media Center, which is something we are planning to create a guide on, but have not yet.

You are correct that Vidabox is the only ones who currently is known to have an RTI driver - there are several of our professional customers who are interested in one, but we are yet to find a partner who have had interests in creating a driver.

The data driver really is not related to the light control, which is handled in a DLL file, except that the data driver (RTI driver) can request a list of custom buttons to display for the user.

The starting point here would be develop a Lutron lights event handler.

Hi Brian,

I've just starting looking at remote event handlers. Looks great!

Unfortunately I seem to have fallen at the first hurdle. I've opened the Denon Remote Handler solution (from the first page), added the reference to "Event Handler Interface.dll" (from C:\ProgramData\My Movies\FileStorage\User Customization\Event Handlers) but VS still lists 7 errors. I've attached a screenshot showing them.

Any insight you have which would point me in the right direction would be much appreciated.

Also, if I reference the dll from the project's "bin" folder VS shows there are still 29 errors. Without the reference there are 33. Not sure what's going on there.

Thanks in advance.

wo0zy: The problem is that there have been updates to the handling since this file was created.

If you press "Enter" after the "ProgramEventHandler", visual studio adds the parameters automatically.

Thanks for the fast reply Brian!

Down to three errors and three warnings now (see attached).

If I can get them cleared I just need to adjust from C# to VB Laughing

Thanks again.

Mick.

Hi Brian,

Thanks. Will be looking at this on a dev PC so happy to install 4 or 5.

If there's going to be a difference I guess it would be best to work on a project that's compatible with 5 to future proof it but I'll be guided by you.

Best regards,

Mick.

Brian, I am working on an event handler for Switch King (Tellstick frontend).
I noticed that there is an event for when MyMovies starts (Launched), but couldn't find anything for closing?
I would like an event when you step out of MyMovies within Media Center. I guess "Launched" is triggered when you start MM inside Media Center?
That way I can start the lights when playback stops and go back to schedule, which may be lights off, when closing MM within MC.

If the event doesn't exist, would it be possible to add it in future versions?
Regards

Are the attached templates (or the ones included in the main program download) the latest versions? I've taken a look, but they appear to be missing some components.

Just use Event Ghost to monitor for TMT or whatever program you are using to play movies. Then have EG either directly control the lights via RS232 or have it send a TCP packet to whatever home automation server your client is running to dim lights, etc...

For RTI control, I haven't used RTI. But I use URC remotes and control media center using this handy program: https://mcec.codeplex.com/

My URC MX-9xx remotes send an RS232 packet to my home automation server via an MSC-400, then my server uses MCE Controller (linked above) to control Media Center via TCP packets.

So... I'm very interested in the lighting control that was demonstrated in that video. I currently build custom PCs for My Movies. But I'm also looking to integrate My Movies with the RTI Control Systems I sell. So it looks like I'll have to buy Vidabox products instead of custom building since no one else seems to be making an RTI driver. And Vidabox's RTI Driver does not have variables to trigger lighting control.

I'd like to know what it'd take to have that functionality to send a command when the movie starts to dim the lights... when the credits roll the lights raise back up. I currently rip the movies as ISOs because my client wants to get the full quality, menus, and extra features of his blurays. We're using PowerDVD as a player, but I'm open to suggestions that can improve the experience. I'll be using a Lutron RadioRa 2 Lighting Control Sytem and an RTI automation system. The entire system should be controlled via an iPad with RTiPanel. Programming the Lutron and RTI is no problem for me. There has to be a way for me to set up this functionality shown in the video. I don't really know how to get started with it, but I don't see any information how to actually make that happen either. Can you give me a push in the right direction here? Are my requests even possible? I'm trying to offer a solution as close to Kaleidescape as possible. These lighting controls would really make the experience of a high end theater room.

I appreciate any responses you can give!

That would be quite dumb, as it does not have access to the meta-data that My Movies uses to control it depending on position in the movie, ect.

Are the templates the latest versions available? I was hoping to build an event handler for myMovies, but it doesn't seem like the templates are the correct versions.
