I've pmed everyone who was interested, the final build should be out soon unless some major bugs are found.

Hey I just downloaded app and really do not know how to setup. I am running boxee using snow leopard. Is it even possible to use notify via boxee?

Not sure if it will work on boxee or not. Try the below, swapping out the ip and port for that of your machine:

Code:
http://192.168.1.13:8080/xbmcCmds/xbmcHttp?command=ExecBuiltIn(Notification(This is a test message%2C15000))

If that works, then it should be just fine.

Yes definitely. It requires Slightly more work then xbmc as their skin has notifications disabled by default so you have to edit the skin.

I'm not the greatest skinner but I followed this post to make it work : http://blakekrone.com/2009/03/31/boxee-asterisk-caller-id-fun

You will also need to enable the HTTP server in boxee in the settings just as you would in xbmc


Hopefully they will fix their default skin maybe I'll send them an email.

Let me know if you need more help and I'll make a quick howto guide.

I lied...the latest Boxee beta does have a valid DialogKaiToast.xml, but...you still need to enable the HTTP Server. Also the DialogKaiToast is valid but its only setup to show the Body of the notification i send so you miss some important information...they've commented the Title out in that file.

Also there's a bug in Boxee well...two issues with Boxee, 1) Their HTTP API does not support FileUpload, like XBMC does...and 2) Since I try to upload a file, and then except the file to be there, I issue a notification with the Contact picture i just uploaded, but since the upload never happened...Boxee decides to crash because it can't find the picture..not that graceful Smile.

I can add a check in Notify Pro that will check to see if the upload was succesfull, and only then try to use the picture.

I'll also contact Boxee and see why they've disabled the FileUpload....and maybe even ask them to fix that crash.

Now released on Cydia !


I've also contacted Boxee with a list of issues that I've noticed, and they are looking into them. Hopefully my app can get better integrated there which would be awesome for those peeps buying boxee boxes. Smile

The concept of your app is great.

I am running os x 10.6 and iphone 3gs.

Used same info in iphone notification pro app as above post.

Not getting it to work with growl. Please post a tutorial how to get it to work with os x. This seems reasonable since i people have paid for the app in cydia like myself and can not get it to work due to lack of a basic guide. PLEASE HELP..! Would love this to work as described..!

Where are you getting that error message? "server not available"

Did you setup a password in growl and allow network notifications?

Did you use port 23053 ? So in notify pro you use 192.168.1.100:23053, and replace the ip with your PC's ip address.

Here's a quick HowTO video for growl on windows.
