(only after pause they refresh)Yeah this is still a known problem because XBMC doesn't always return the correct value (depending on how fast I request the data I think).
tomer953 Wrote:2. the volume problem with volume buttons is still a live ;(Yeah no changes there as there is no way I can notice when iMON Manager interfers with the LCD. If you find a way to change the XBMC volume let me know.
tomer953 Wrote:3. when playing a tv show, It look like the same as I playing movie, showing the Title only and the "MOVIE" tag in the LCD, tried all my tvshows..Are your tv shows in the library or not? If not there is currently no way to distinguish between movies and tv shows.

my tv shows is in the Libary..
another thing, is the "strat from the latest location" when you enter to a movie you already whatched, the times bars are wrong.
and when you insert location using numbers (12:42:13) the same problem...

XBMC does not define whether the currently playing video is a movie, tv episode or music video. I try to determine this using the availability of certain info fields (like when "artist" is available it must be a music video) but maybe the needed fields are missing in your library database.

tomer953 Wrote:and when you insert location using numbers (12:42:13) the same problem...I'll have to see if I get an announcement from XBMC that the playing position has changed. If not I can't do anything about it in my program. Maybe I could write a patch for XBMC to fire an announcement but I'll first have to investigate it.

OK I checked the things you mentioned.
- All TV Shows in my library are recognized as such by my program.
- Progress bar starts from the correct position when starting a movie with "start from xx:xx"
- Progress bar updates correctly when jumping to a location by entering a time value
A debug log containing these scenarios would be the best way to figure out the problem. At my end everything works fine...

Seems to work on my seven 32bit. I have frequently my lcd screen hanging on a "stop" message though, no other choice when this happens than restart your tool.
I'm just wondering, did you notice that Soundgraph implemented the xbmc support for some versions now ?
I'm installing VS to check your solution right away, great job man, because your code seems even more reactive that the imon built-in xbmc stuff
For the TV-show/movie differenciation issue, I assume it may depend on the place which the video is run from. For instance, with the Alaska skin, if I go to "new episodes" directly from home, xbmc-on-imon thinks it is a movie I'm watching. But if I run the exact same file from the standard place, browsing tv-shows, then seasons, it understands it is a tv-show.
Maybe it is related to another xbmc problem which consists of - I think - avoiding the custom player rules to be analysed when launching a movie from such a shortcut screen. So maybe it comes from xbmc and from your app.

playing an episode of survivor s11e01 called "Big Trek, Big Trouble, Big Surprise"
Imon show only the title.
on line 5: "המשך מהמיקום האחרון" = play from the last position in Hebrew...
Played "Law.Abiding.Citizen" from the middle and time bars stays on start untill pause.
3) you were right.. my mistake
and something else, the debug file size increas every 1 sec in 1kb when xbmc is active, any way to make debug.old.txt everytime you exit xbmc and delete the old one? Like logging in xbmc the software.. so the log file won't be 1Gb or something

whice version of xbmc are you using at? me beta4...

Same here. Maybe I'll have to ask XBMC for the current position every 5 seconds instead of keeping a local time value (which is updated every 5 seconds) and only asking XBMC for the actual value if something like play/pause etc happens. I did it this way to reduce the amount of calls and possible latency but at least at my end the Control mode works pretty smoothly and it asks XBMC for the current position every 500ms which is a tenth of the interval of the progress bar (where it doesn't really make sense to make it smaller).

Not that I'm doing wrong but can not get connected.
I have no very clear that we must put in IP.
I use my HTPC via wifi.
