It is a lightpack from woodenshark. I am getting the unknown device error.

Edit: After further investigation it appears I did not compile the library for boblight. I don't know how to do this on my build though as it is an mx Linux build for an android set top box. I will investigate but if anyone has a mygica atv520 and knows how to install a library that would be greatly appreciated.

The Fast or Slow presets work as expected for everything. However, the only "Custom" setting that seems to work is "Music Videos." If I set TV Shows, Movies or Files to "Custom," the lights remain off, just as if it is set to disabled.

Same thing happens with the Override Used Category setting. If it's set to TV Shows, Movies or Files and the setting is Custom, the lights remain off as if it is disabled. Setting the Override using Musicvideo set to Custom is the only mode that works.

Tested using the latest boblight 2.0.7 and 2.0.8, boblightd (OE version) v3.1.3, OpenELEC 3.4.2

Please ensure that you really specified some settings for those custom categories. I verified it a dozens of times and it works for me like it should.

Hi, I can confirm that. In previous versions blank values worked like something were filled. I think, that wasn't a feature, that was a little bug. Probably developer (meant youWink) could have no issues here, because he knows that something should be filled Big Grin

Just try to read the first post and set that parameters, that you'll find suitable for your device. For my lightpack normal are: saturation - up to 10 (for music - 20), value - 0.6 (pretty close to wall), threshold - 10 (just as recommended)

The purpose of custom ist to have custom settings - What did you think? *wonders* - if it worked before - it was a bug indeed - the Default custom values are zeroed ...

i tried on custom to set only the speed , the rest was 0 - it was on tv shows.
then i tried to add saturation between 0 - 10.
i also tried to add or remove the other values - but always the same.
the lights going off when i start the tv show. Don't know what i'm doing wrong.
of course on slow or fast everything working fine, so i just let it as it is Smile

look in the debug log - it prints out the boblight values - use the values from e.x. "fast" and set them in a custom category. If you still get a black boblight then i wanna see that debug log

just search the log for "boblight" to find the relevant printouts.

Just FYI--I saw your response in the bug tracker, but I haven't had time to mess with the setup and get you a debug log. But yes, the values are not "zeroed." In fact, I've just tried all the settings I had set in the Music Videos category in the others. Same results everytime. The only custom setting that works on my setup is the one I set in Music Videos.

I will work on getting you a debug log in the next couple of days. Thanx for being so responsive!

OK--I think I just figured out the problem. Looking at the xbmc debug log, I see that whenever I switch to the TV Shows custom settings, it thinks the saturation setting is "0.0" But when I look at ~/userdata/addon_data/script.xbmc.boblight/settings.xml, that file contains the proper saturation setting of "1.1" I'm not sure why it only seems to get the musicvideo custom setting right but not the others.

Debug Log File: http://www.xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=144479
My settings.xml: http://www.xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=145799
My boblight.conf: http://www.xbmclogs.com/show.php?id=145802

The pertinent sections from xbmc.log in debug:
Code:
01:37:22 T:140279923332864   DEBUG: ### [XBMC Boblight] - settings() - start
01:37:22 T:140279923332864   DEBUG: ### [XBMC Boblight] - PlayerChanged(start)

01:37:22 T:140279923332864   DEBUG: ### [XBMC Boblight] - settings() - handleStaticBgSettings

And the correct settings whenever I set to musicvideo:
Code:

01:37:29 T:140279923332864   DEBUG: ### [XBMC Boblight] - PlayerChanged(start)

Please edit your Post and move it all to pastebin.com - it's horrible to view on a phone as it is now...

Nevermind. I just got it all to work. I think the defaults for all the values in custom should be set to something other than zero. I missed setting the value setting in the other custom setups eventhough I copied (and missed) the the value setting in the settings.xml file.

Thanx for the help.
