Ok, figured it out.

1. Log into Dcerouter

2. In frame on left side, scroll down to bottom to the 'Events Handler' category. Click 'Timed Events'

3. Enter the name of your new event in the box (the only place to enter it) and choose 'Day of the Week Based' and hit 'Add'

4. You will then see a page similar to the one here. You will see the rooms you can use, and you will need to enter the time for the event to be fired. Save at this point.

5. Then you will need to add the event to be fired. From the drop-down list, choose Media Plugin. Its a child of DCErouter I believe. When you settle on Media Plugin, the box to right will be updated with the appropriate commands. choose command MH play media and hit add.

6. This will bring up the parameters box and you can enter your setting here. Remember, use the path provided to the file in the database .You can find it under 'media files sync' from the top navigation menu under 'Files & Media').

7. Save you should be good to go.

Couple notes:
DO NOT test the command from there!!!! It will delete the command (but not the event). If you must test, either set the alarm for a few minutes ahead or goto the devices tree and send the command directly to the device.

messed something up

when i figure it out, you will know.

btw, when I try and fire a test command from the advanced events page, it deletes the event (and params!) Which is why i normally test everything from the devices page...anyways can you tell im bored?

more to follow.

I just appreciate the work that you and the other folks are putting into this for the benefit of everyone else. I read a lot more than I respond on here and i've been following your progress ( and frustrations ) with insteon.

Which parameters are you having problems with? Almost all have a tool tip. Also, have you experimented with sending test commands to the device to flush out what does and doesn't work?

I use the media plugin, and I use the MH Play Media Command. It gives me these parameters:

#13 Filename (string)    -  /home/public/data/audio/Internal HDD-CORE (sda1) [47]/Don McLean/American Pie/01 American Pie.mp3 <---I get this path from the database.

#2 PK_Device (int)
   - not needed here to work (in my experience)

#44 PK_DeviceTemplate (int)    - Also not needed to work

#45 PK_EntertainArea (string)    - 1, 2  <---this means the bedroom and living room. Separate each area by comma and you should be good to go.

#29 PK_MediaType (int)    - depends on what your playing. I always put this but i dont know if its needed.
playlists = 21
video = 5
audio = 2
? = 17 <---meaning my cheat sheet hasn't gotten there yet.

#117 Repeat (int)    - 0 = default for media, 1= repeat, -1= dont repeat.

#116 Resume (bool) - "true" means go back to what you were doing before. "False" means dont.

I added a test timed event to my system and if it works i'll post my settings here. I have gotten the above to work for me though. For example, "house to sleep mode" kills all the lights turns of the living room display, and starts playing my 'sleepytime' playlist in the bedroom.

Hope this Helps.

Hey there and welcome to the community.

Which UI are you using? It sounds like UI1, in which case have you tried clicking the mouse buttons while the media is playing. It should bring up the 'remote'.

In the case of UI2, you need to use the keyboard and press the f5, f6, and f7 buttons respectively.

you can also take a look at this thread for more information on how to setup your mouse buttons so that you don't need the keyboard.

And lastly, the wiki and the forums have a lot of information covering usage topics so searching 1st may find you your answer.

If none of the above info helps, please post a little more in depth as I could only guess and my suggestions are based on that guess.

So tempting....but something tells me I should just wait. Nothing like toasting your system for xmas because you didn't know what you were doing.  :)

i've had this problem as well. It mainly happened when I had the 'update media' checked. Since i've left it unchecked I dont have this problem anymore. But yeah, somehow AC/DC cover art made it to Tablib Keweli ???

so if you really want it.. click on view by Filename. If you're not happy, modify your version of the code. OR LEAVE.


are you always this pissy? Seriously, its feature requests. So fracking sorry if we ask for a better way to access the content. Didnt realize it was your way or the highway. And in the future, maybe you shouldn't accuse other users of being thieves.

And seriously, do you have to spend your time pooping on ideas for improvement? It seems more productive work can be done besides calling people thieves and telling them its 'this way or the highway'. Why do you think we ARENT using windows  ::)

Xine has been customized for LMCE and you will have a mess on your hands if you muck with it. I hear that Xine will be replaced in the next release any week now so just wait.

thats what I decided to do. Im not qualified to go messing around with the guts...yet  8)

ok, does anyone know if I would break my current linuxMCE install if I follow the instructions in the link above on fixing the a/v sync issues?

Ok, so I just received mine on Friday.  I have been trying to get it to work properly since then. Maybe someone here can answer a couple of questions for me.

1. How do you set up scenarios? Its really confusing with all the random commands in the scenario page. Do i need to create a cheat sheet and learn every single one? Is there an easier way to tell it what to turn on and off? Currently, nothing works right except the volume.  :(

2. Why would my usb-uirt send the right code once, then stop working after that?

3. this is related to the scenarios again. is there an explicit way to tell it what to do and when?

 Believe when I say i have been pouring over the wiki, but the info there is really just not complete. hopefully someone here can explain to me how to get this working properly.

I assume that your usb-uirt is working for 'normal' IR remote control functions?

You are correct sir. My issues are the firing of the ir commands. I did get things worked out by solely using my receiver, but im still curious as to how linuxMCE decides what commands to send and where. Im very confused as to why a code would work once, then stop. i even looked into the timing and other stuff but no dice. maybe i crossed the wrong code somewhere? I also have a gyro mouse. Could that be causing a problem?

btw. im working with:

recently purchased usb-irt
xp MCE remote

thanks for any ideas
