Developed some small piece of software that will pull the videoplayer state from XBMC then command the Tellstick to turn on/off or dim lights

http://code.google.com/p/xbmc-light-controller/

Please feel free to try out ;-) This is an early stage since I created it today, but feel free to try!

This is supposed to run on Windows with Tellstick plugged in.

Only tested on Windows 7 with Telldus software against XBMC Live on remote computer.

Have release new version: 1.0.0.8

This release has "Minimize to tray" so it won't be in your way while running. :-)

This doesn't work with Eden Beta 1. I found this guide though, works like a charm!

Hmm, that sounds weird. I will download a copy of Eden Beta and test myself and see if any protocols have changed or anything Nerd

I use this every day myself and it works with stable release Smile

EDIT: http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=Eden_API_Changes
The JSON API has changed with Eden, rendering current release useless at time beeing. Will look into an automatic version compare with correct JSON commands later.

I only get this error message when I try to install this:

"Unable to install or run the application. The application requires that assembly Microsoft.VisualBasic.PowerPacks.Vs Version 10.0.0.0 be installed in the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) first."

I assume there is something else I need to install?
