Pause cvaction doesn´t work any longer?

Question

I have an nvidia shield TV and Kodi 19.2 matrix with CV. Could it be that the sleep function in .cvaction no longer works? During the test, cv tells me that everything worked and that longer breaks, e.g. from 10 seconds in the test, were set to 1 sec. I can understand that, but as soon as I run the program and, for example, give the command "sleep: // 43000" the command is skipped and the next command is executed immediately. It has worked for me for years so does anyone have similar experiences? Is it maybe the new python? I might have to try Kodi 19.0 but . I don't want to reinstall everything😰 and then it still doesn't work😉

Hey Jens --

Running Kodi 19.3 on an NVidia ShieldTV with CV and the pause action works for me. It's pretty simple - I'm just having it do a PUT to my theater lights (Philips Hues) with a long transistion from black to 60% light. Mine doesn't use the sleep command, so perhaps you are asking about that specifically - but for just pausing the movie and bringing up the lights - it's working for me.

Thank you @ELPTheater but I don´t understand it. Can you give me deeper information how your command looks like?

Here is my Example of the old sleep function that works for me over years:

#Waiting 51 sec.

sleep://51000

#dimm the philips hue light

http://192.168.188.xx/xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxgroups/1/action
PUT:{"on":false,"transitiontime":30}

#waiting 1 sec.

sleep://1000

#dimm other light

Jens - I tried your sleep://##### function in my own scripts - and definitely got an error in the log - so I'd say you're correct - python seems to be having an issue with parsing the sleep command in the action.

ELPTheater- Thank you, so I don´t need to search more. Hope there is someone who can fix the problem 😉

Hi,

so does that mean the "sleep://<time in millisec>" feature doesn`t work at all anymore?

I also need the function for the automatic process. That would be the "knock out" for me.

Best regards

Looks like they changed the format?  Keep me honest and do a quick search.  I may be wrong.

sleep://51000 = time.sleep(.51000)

No, CinemaVision wants it in the protocol://protocol data format (see attachment) - unless you're suggesting that the parser build into CinemaVision needs to be modified?

I don't know if this helps or not - here is what I found after some testing - if I set it to:

sleep://1000

It works - I get a one second pause and then the next command executes. I did a radical color change so I could see what was going on. 

Anything above that (e.g. sleep://10000) and I still get a 1 second pause. It's almost like the coding for the "test" mode is stuck - that it's converting whatever one puts into the command to 1000 ms.
