I can see the possibilities. I just haven't managed to get one to work yet. I can see it is an if/then statement with the if implied. When creating an avanced event is the template column just used for show or does it mean something? Also, if I create a respond to event in the wizard I can see it in the advanced events but if I create an advanced event I cannot see it in the wizard. Why is that?
I have tried editing the criteria but the criteria values are not always what I think they should be. State is a general time of day. PK_EventParameter I think is a booleon value which seems to work real well with X10 RF remotes and X10 motion detectors. I guess it would be nice to know what a particular criteria is looking for when it presents a text box. I have been playing with LinuxMCE for a few months now. I have found that setting things up with the help of the wizard is pretty straight forward but some advanced setup (events, editing templates, etc ) are a mystery wrapped in an enigma, pushed into the middle of a conundrum.
I am mainly interested in the home autmation aspect of lmce (since I already have a working mythtv server running) although I would like to integrate some ip cameras and interface my ademco based alarm system to it. I am not sure if the latter is possible. I have not looked at that yet since I am still being thwarted by advanced events. It is becoming an obsession
