Events (for eventghost)

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

 

Would it be possible to add different kind of events showing in Eventghost?

At this time there is no difference in events between a movie (within Kodi) playing or a sequence playing from Cinema Vision.

So, it would be great if Cinema Vision shows other events then the events Kodi shows.

That way I can dim (or turn off) the lights when Kodi`s player starts, and not when Cinema Vision is starting the sequence and/or trailers...

 

In the mean time, thank you for a great piece of software and keep up the good work!

 

Since English is not my native language, I hope I was able to make myself clear, I`m sorry if thats not the case:)

 

Kind regards

I appreciate the effort with English! The downside here is that CinemaVision can only control home automation while it's running, and it doesn't run until you launch a Sequence. It's possible that this could be something we add in to our upcoming CinemaVision Service add-on. I'll reach out to our developer and see what he suggests. What events would you like CinemaVision to show? We already have it set up so that we can pass things like module name, module type, etc. to third-party applications. You're quite welcome! We'll keep working on it as long as there's interest from the community.

Hi Ragnarok,

 

First of all, thanks for your reply, I really appreciate it!

I really have no idea of what is possible and/or how much time/work it takes, but it would be great if each sequence has is own event;

When a movie starts, Kodi (and Cinema Vision as well) now  only shows the 'player.on.play.movie' event in Eventghost, thats it.  It would be ideal when Cinema Vision could show a event like that, but then with its own name with each separate sequence Cinema Vision has to offer.

For example:

 

Cinema Vision playing:

intro trailer,  trailer, outro trailer

 

Events showing up in Eventghost:

 

player.on.play.introtrailer

player.on.play.trailer

player.on.play.outrotrailer

etc.

 

Our home theater has three different light groups, with the given example it would look like this:

Event: play.on.play.introtrailer    -    action: main lights dim 50% - projectorscreen lights dim 50% - table lights dim 50%

Event: Player.on.play.trailer         -    action: projectorscreen lights dim 25% - table lights dim 25%

Event: player.on.play.outrotrailer -   action:  Do nothing

And then, when the 'Famous player.on.play.movie Kodi'  event shows up, all the lights turning off...

 

The more different events CV shows in Eventghost, the more you can tweak the actions that follow.

 

 

Thanks again!

Regards

Ah! I gotcha. So I just realized that I never finished the EventGhost Guide... feel like helping me do that? Several people have had success by using the Webserver Plugin. All you should need to do is set up the webserver, create some trigger webpages that call events in EventGhost, and then create some CinemaVision Actions that call the webpage specific to the event you want to trigger.

So for example, if your event is named "HTTP.CVTrailerScene", and it does the following:

  1. Main lights dim 50%.
  2. Projectorscreen lights dim 50%.
  3. Table lights dim 50%.

You would create an HTML page that looked something like this:

<head>
    <title>EventGhost Webserver: CV Trailer Scene</title>
</head>
<body>
    <a href="CVTrailerScene.html?CVTrailerScene">CV Trailer Scene</a>
</body>

Then once you have the trigger associated with the event, you'd create a CinemaVision Action that looks like this:

# Replace <webserver_ip_address> with the IP address or DNS name of your EventGhost webserver
http://<webserver_ip_address>/CVTrailerScene.html

Give that a shot!

Thank you for your explanation!

Ofcourse I want to help you with this, but unfortunaly this stuff is much to complicated for me,  as a simple Kodi user:)

If you can guide me thru this, I am willing to try everything you ask me, but i`m affraid I need a step by step explanation (this will problaby cost you a lot of time and effort).

 

For now I will wait pantiently and hope that maybe in the (near?) future, the "showing events option"  come within Cinema Vision.

 

I thank you again for your help!

(let me know if I can be of any assistance to you)

You're welcome! Let me know if the webserver guide in my last post works for you. It should allow you to do exactly what you are looking to do.
