    Which light system too choose?

    I would third a Z-wave setup. I never understood smart bulbs, they render your switches useless. Replace the switches with Z-wave dimmers and and you retain the manual function and gain remote control. As for controlling them you mention wanting "the most options". If you really want to get into full home automation I would suggest Home Assistant. It definitely has a steeper learning curve but it's open source and free and control just about everything.
  2. I have created some cvactions for my Home Assistant home automation system that work with my CinemaVision. I thought somebody else might get some use out of them. I was going to add them to the downloads section but the Create feature seems to be broken. Maybe an admin can do that for me? -Hoobie7 Movie_Start.cvaction Movie_Stop.cvaction

    Action Test Button Not Working

    Ok, some more testing revealed something interesting. When the Test buttons were failing the "Execute action on sequence abort" option was not enabled. Since enabling that option all three Test buttons work now! The "Parser Messages" window pops up and the action happens. I then disabled that option and the other two Test buttons continued to work. Strange behavior but hopefully that helps narrow it down. Or, again, maybe I'm just crazy.
  4. I have gotten CV working with my home automation with JSON via a cvaction file. Actions in the sequence work and so do the pause and resume actions. The only issue is when I use the Test button for the action it does not work. This isn't a big deal it just makes testing more difficult. I have pasted in the log entry that I think pertains. Let me know if you need more. 22:09:36 T:3796 NOTICE: Thread LanguageInvoker start, auto delete: false 22:09:36 T:3796 NOTICE: -->Python Interpreter Initialized<-- 22:09:36 T:3796 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -]: Passed args: ['addon.py', 'test.actions', 'RESUME'] 22:09:37 T:3796 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): Rating Systems: 22:09:37 T:3796 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): MPAA: [NR, G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17] 22:09:37 T:3796 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): FSK: [18, 16, 12, 6, 0] 22:09:37 T:3796 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): DEJUS: [18 Anos, 16 Anos, 14 Anos, 12 Anos, 10 Anos, Livre] 22:09:37 T:3796 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): BBFC: [R18, 18, 15, 12, 12A, PG, U, Uc] 22:09:37 T:3796 ERROR: EXCEPTION Thrown (PythonToCppException) : -->Python callback/script returned the following error<-- - NOTE: IGNORING THIS CAN LEAD TO MEMORY LEAKS!
