I love this addon but cant seem to get it working. on the VFD all i see is XBMC [Stop] and it also shows the commands from imon if I choose to show them. When I try launching the .exe it gives me an error and was wondering if its just something stupid I am missing.
Running the newest imon software for my VFD, windows 7 x86 ultimate, and v1.4 of your software.
here is the error that comes up
Any help would be much appreciated. I think i am just missing something stupid.

I have done everything in your steps. XMBC seems to be connecting to 'XBMC on IMON' because it auto launches when XBMC starts up. As soon as it does I get that .net error that was pasted above. Is anyone else having this issue. I have tried actually going back and installing the older version of imon with the patch and still am having the same issue.
Is anyone else having this problem. Thanks

i had this problem too,,,
but the message error i was receiving was that it Couldnt connect to port xxxxx
and thats because for some reason, at least on my system,
when i was setting XBMC-on-IMON to port 8085 well,
it was reverting automatically to the default port O.O
After many tryings, it finally kept the 8085 port
and didnt change back to default one...
i dont know what causes this... but anyways...
so yeah, since now it keeps the port to 8085, it now works!

What version of XBMC are you using? If you are using one of the latest nightlies (since I committed a huge change in json rpc a bit more than a week ago) then XBMC on iMON won't work properly as lots of the methods have changed.

it seems to be holding the port number correctly and connecting. I tried changing the port and got the error message about not being able to connect to that port.
When i put in the correct for and try to connect I immediately get the error with this message:
System.ArgumentNullException: String reference not set to an instance of a String.
Parameter name: s
Just not sure where to go from here.

I can confirm this issue. I suspend my HTPC and after a couple of suspends I notice that there is no longer a connection and it defaults back to the standard imon manager display.
