  1. I know you are still working on official documentation now that the product is released. But even when that is out, it would be great to have a kodi like help or information line at the bottom of the page when each setting is selected.
  2. Yes, yes it does. I have this working now and put together actions that work with the auth module as well. It is being reviewed by CinemaVision gurus at the moment. Once it passes inspection, it'll probably get posted here somewhere so, stayed tuned.
  3. That gave me a good laugh. Too bad is not 1080p.
  4. Geez, I don't know how I missed this. Sorry Ragnarok. Yes, I will send this to you right away.
  5. I have some actions what work with the ISY99, 99i and 99 Pro. I'd imagine they should work with the 994. I am just waiting for the Guides section to upload the scripts.
  6. Thanks Ragnarok. But, no, that was the first thing I tried and still didn't work. But matters not. I have gone around the ACTION scripts, sort of, and created a module that I load before each call to handle the HTTP Basic authentication. That seems to be working well. I have 95% of the write up completed. What is the proper way to share this with others here? I have 2 example files with instructions I'd like to share.
  7. Thanks. Well... 0.42 does not seem to be working well right now. It could not find any of my sequences and other issues but... I was able to load my action and now I am seeing a whole new error, so I now code is morphing 07:57:11 T:2326645568 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): -| 'HEADERS:{"Authorization": "Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4="}' 07:57:11 T:2326645568 NOTICE: [- CinemaVision -] (API): -| First action line must have the form: protocol://whateveSo, I need to research this for a bit to see what changed and how I need to code it now.
  8. No worries Ragnarok. Happens in the best of families... However, even with the S added, still not working. I still think there is something seriously wrong with the HEADERS: call. Is this scripting language Kodi's or CV's? I have been trying to find more info about it with no avail. I ran a few more tests today. I was making a hole in my head scratching it, so I decided to break out my WireShark. I can see clearly that when the HEADERS: is added, there is not even a GET being performed at all. It just blows up behind the scenes with nothing logged other than that parsing error I posted above. But when I use the username:password in the URL I can see the proper Header formed and a successful response.
  9. No worries Ragnarok, I'd still like to get examples to share with everyone either way as soon as I get it working properly. Unfortunately, I had already seen the extra colon and I had removed it in my code. I just happened to grab and post the previous version. It made no difference. I am not sure the HEADER: parameter is working right. When I have it in there I get this: 20:32:11 T:2124303168 NOTICE: [- CinemaVison -] (API): [!] /home/me/.kodi/CinemaVision/Actions/ISY_994i.cvaction 20:32:11 T:2124303168 ERROR: Traceback (most recent call last): 20:32:11 T:2124303168 ERROR: File "/home/me/.kodi/addons/script.cinemavision/lib/cinemavision/actions.py", line 128, in init 20:32:11 T:2124303168 ERROR: self._loadCommands() 20:32:11 T:2124303168 ERROR: File "/home/me/.kodi/addons/script.cinemavision/lib/cinemavision/actions.py", line 153, in _loadCommands 20:32:11 T:2124303168 ERROR: name, data = line.split('://', 1) 20:32:11 T:2124303168 ERROR: ValueError: need more than 1 value to unpack 20:32:11 T:2124303168 NOTICE: [- CinemaVison -] (API): Sequence processing finished 20:32:11 T:2124303168 NOTICE: [- CinemaVison -]: Experience: Playing next item: ACTION: /home/me/.kodi/CinemaVision/Actions/ISY_994i.cvaction - AFP () 20:32:11 T:2124303168 NOTICE: [- CinemaVison -]: Experience: [ -- Finished -------------------------------------------------------------- ] If I take the header out and add username and password to the URL, I get the full XML response with the output of the time command. I can keep doing this and finish the action showing ON, OFF and DIMMING but I don't think is the right way. I should be able to set the encoded header just like in the curl command above and perform a get with the REST call.
  10. Not a big deal, but I just noticed the music feature. I configured it and could not help notice Music selection behavior. Should the selection of a "Directory" gray out the Music File selection from underneath? And should a "None" selection either remove or gray out both choices? Maybe.
  11. OK guys, I have put considerable time on this. But before I get there let me please commend you on the efforts thus far. What a great add-on! Really. It far surpassed my expectations. So, thanks to all of you for all your hard work. I can hardly wait for it to go mainstream. So, on the automation with the Insteon devices. Here is where I am at. I was able to control individual devices and even programmed scenes within the action just fine. They are all REST calls so it really a cinch. However, the Insteon modules require Basic HTTP authentication prior to every call. This line works well from the command line: curl -D- -X GET -H "Authorization: Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4=" -H "Content-Type: application/json" Basic HTTP Auth is my admin user Base64 encrypted. I thought it would be great if I did not have to show the username and password in clear text while talking to the module. However, within the cvaction. I can't seem to be able to set the header for this type of authorization. Here is what the action looks like. HEADER: {"Content-Type": "application/json", "Authorization:": "Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4="} The above does not work nor it logs any errors, which really means I am not authenticated. But if I remove the header and add the username and password to the URL, it works just fine. Like this: http://user:password@ ideas? Is there a debug mode I can set CV to so I can tell what the action is doing low level. I rely on kodi.log to tell me and there ain't much going there.
  12. Wonderful! Thanks a lot. I can definitively do this work and report back. One thing to keep in mind though, not knowing how familiar you are the Insteon but, there may be two interfaces. The old ISY Insteon, which is where the biggest user base is, and the new Insteon Hub. I am not sure they changed APIs but as long as both are REST based, you should be OK. Thanks again. Looking forward to the next beta release.
  13. Hello, I am new to this site and this forum. So new in fact, I have not even installed this add-on yet. This will be my weekend play chore. I wonder if there is any support yet for Insteon or is it in the works/planning? If it is not, can you add it to the list of upcoming features please? In my current setup with CinemaExperience, as you may know, that add-on communicates with the ISY Browser add-on I believe, via the Home Automation menu. So when the Trailers or Movie starts, the lights dim to 25% and when paused or stopped, they come on again to 85% per my scene setting. Since I have everything setup and working, I'd be more than happy to be a beta tester for the feature. Just let me know. Thanks!
  14. Winston here. I have been an XBMC user since my XBOX v1.0. Have also been an avid supporter of the CinemaExperience add-on since it started back with a different name I can't remember and I intend to provide the same support now for CinemaVision. Keep up the good work guys. It'll get there!
