  1. If I can figure out how to do something, I'm more than happy to contribute.
  2. I looked through the guide, but to be honest I was pretty clueless where to start. I looked under the RPi section but there wasn't anything there lol. Thanks for the starting point, either of these should be a great place to start. I only need to send a single command to turn them off "/opt/vc/bin/tvservice -o" (-p to turn on), so as long as I can muddle my way through setting that up it should work splendidly. Thanks for the help, all the search results for "ssh raspberry pi kodi" just seemed to return results for controlling Kodi when it's installed on a Pi... cool but not what I needed and a LOT to sort through lol. I looked at the MoviePoster app before I went with the Pi set up. I liked the way it looked but it didn't quite fit the bill for what I was doing. IIRC I had to run a cable from my Kodi box all the way around the room to the other displays, and I don't think I had the ability to run two different poster displays (however that could have been a limitation of the number of video out options I had on my pc, it's been a while). I've never heard of PseudoCinema Poster, I'll have to take a look at that, but I'm fairly happy with my current setup... minus not being able to dim them lol. I like seeing posters for movies that I don't currently own, as well as ones I do, as they often remind me about movies I haven't gotten around to buying yet. Once I get a bit more time I think I'm going to look into a way to have the RPi's automatically add something like "now playin" to the top of the images to see if I can get away from having to stretch them so much to fit the screens, but that's a discussion for another day, and probably a Pi forum. Thanks again Man!
  3. This is my digital poster display: http://www.plastiquefreak.com/digital-movie-poster-display-part-3-a-taste-of-pi/ I'm using a Raspberry Pi unit to control each of them. I'm looking for a way to send a command to them to dim, or turn off, the poster display during movie playback... but I honestly have no idea where to start. Lol & face palm at the same time. Is it possible to send an ssh command using CV? Sorting through all the non-relevant information is getting a bit time consuming, and am hoping someone can at least point me to a good starting point.

    What are you currently working on?

    Just finishing up slides for the Terminator movies, think I'm going to try delving into some of the home automation stuff. I've got two smaller TV's that I use as movie poster displays, I want to see if there's a way to get Kodi/CV to call out to the Raspberry Pi's I have running them to dim/blank the display when something is playing... this should be fun, I have no idea where to even start for that one *smh*

    Marvel Movie Slides (WIP)

    Glad you're enjoying them. Working my way through the terminator movies right now, I'm hoping to have a set for Doctor Strange ready around the time the BluRay/DVD comes out.
  13. I've had this issue with a couple of decks that I've downloaded, one of the Superman decks for sure, but there were a couple of others too. I've noticed that they were decks that were named properly but used a capital A/C/Q at the end of the file name, and not a lower case a/c/q, I changed them to lower case and haven't had an issue since. I'm not sure if CV is supposed to be case sensitive or not, but it seems that having a mixture of upper and lower case has caused an issue for me... or at least I haven't been able to replicate the problem after changing them.

    Conflict With AmbiBox?

    Yeah... so I feel like a doof. After letting this eat at me for a couple of days, I finally had some time to sit down and do some trouble shooting. Looks like when I hooked up the Arduino to control the lights, the drive that I have my slides (and stuff) stored on got reassigned a new drive letter, which broke the content path for CV. I corrected the path and all is working flawlessly. ...If this thread were to disappear from existence, my ego would be eternally greatfull. if not, let this serve as a lesson for everyone else; ALWAYS check the simple stuff FIRST. LOL

    Conflict With AmbiBox?

    I kind of figured, I couldn't find much on a Google search either. I'll post a log when I get some time to do some trouble shooting, and I'm going to keep tinkering with it too. I had to do quite a bit of tinkering to get the ambilight display working in the first place, so it's possible I may have inadvertently broken something when I was trying to get things working too. I'll keep this thread updated as I go along, just so it's here for anyone else who may run into this issue in the future. EDIT: I hadn't tried turning off AmbiBox yet, I haven't had the time yet to do any trouble shooting... probably be a good place to start lol. I'll let you know. :)
