  1. As reported in a separate thread, both myself and other users have (sometimes) struggled to rebuild (or build) the movie database using the C4 collection management driver for MyMovies. In my case it would get stuck once at a point that I will identify as BluRay A and then get through this after 20 minutes / half an hour before getting stuck forever at BluRay B. I had tried rebuilding 4 or 5 times over the last few days with the same result every time. Around 20 movies were successful in minutes (1 or 2) before Blu Ray A causes a delay (between 20 minutes and an hour) and another 20 or so worked before Blu Ray B whereafter nothing worked again (overnight gave the driver 10 hours to do something but nothing happened). My conclusion was there is a timeout after 20 seconds and if the information is not copied over by C4 within that period (presumably the frequency of scanning the folder with the movies in it (as sub folders)) then C4 would try again. The problem (as I see it) is that on some systems and for some titles 20 seconds is not enough and an endless loop ensues. Control4, please investigate. My suggested changes: 1. Change the 20 second timeout to, say, 60 seconds... 2. If the TimeOut happens 10 times on the same title, don't try and add that title again but rather add an icon with the title name and corrupt connection - or something similar - as the icon. This would allow the database build to complete and future titles to always either be added or, at least, not hang everything but alert the user to a problem that a dealer can look at.
  2. After a recent system and driver update (C4 to 2.9.0 plus other driver updates), something has broken with the MyMovies HTPC driver. Previously I could launch movies from the Movies launcher on my remote, but now every time I attempt to launch a movie I get the following message in Composer for the Driver Information field: "Can only play movies from a My Movies database". Normally the driver field said MyMovies found or something similar. I know i've got good API match in both the HTPC and collection management driver, and the MyMovies launcher on the remote definitely sees all the movies, because it makes them available for launch. I can't find any documentation online on what might be causing the driver error, but I've dug and dug to trouble shoot. Uninstalled, cleaned, and re-installed mymovies server on the HTPC, refreshed and rebuilt databases. All sorts of steps. Few notes: The HTPC driver works correctly controlling WMC from my remotes. The movies appear to populate correctly. Nothing about movie location has changed (on NAS). Any thoughts or suggestions are appeciated. Or if there is a remote dealer that is familiar with the MyMovies drivers i'd be interested in talking.

  3. Slysoft, the company responsible for (among others) the program AnyDVDHD, the driving force behind MANY movie servers' ability to copy disc-owned movies has been forced to close it's doors and immediately cease to operate as of February 24th 2016 This affects such solutions as MyMovies, Fusion and many more.
  4. I run Mymovies and Dune player in my Control4 setup and use the Extra Vegetables driver for it. Everything was working perfectly fine until today. I had recently changed my wireless adapter on the PC that was running mymovies. So, this had changed the IP address. When I added a new movie, it wasn't coming on to control4. I tried scanning using Composer HE and it didn't find the movie. Even worse.. It deleted all my movies from Control 4. The movies themselves are on the NAS and mymovies looks fine on the PC. But, control4 doesn't see any of the movies. I guess when the IP was wrong, it didn't find the movies and the scan option to delete movies that it didn't find, deleted the movies. I realized that this was a IP address issue and changed the IP back to my old IP. Now, the new movie I added is showing up in Control4, but not any other movie. If I delete a movie from my movie and add it again, then it shows up in Control4. Is there an easy way to scan all the movies again and bring them into control4? I don't want to delete and add all my movies again. Please help!!
  5. So... I've had this happen once before and it seemed to self correct but its not doing so now. Basically when selecting a movie from through the "Movies" section of the C4 ui all of my devices turn on properly, go to the proper A/V receiver outputs/TV inputs and the Now Playing area shows the proper movie being played on "PopBox" but the movie never starts playing. I simply get the PopBox menu screen and that's it. I've done the following so far... Checked the status of my NAS to confirm it was online Rebooted my controller Rebuilt the MyMovies Media Database No clue what happened the first time to cause this or what happened this time as neither time was their any changes made. Thoughts?
  6. Hi All, Have fixed several bugs across all drivers, thanks for the feedback, and have added remote VPN access support and automatic realtime driver updates. Features include :- Stonetree_DriverCental - Central Management driver providing common modules and functions to all other Stonetree drivers - Realtime updates to latest versions of all drivers - OpenVPN server facility to allow multiple client access for support purposes - OpenVPN remote support facility configurable to connect to dealer support service - Automatic backups to remote storage upon Navigator Refresh Stonetree_MyMovies - Extract meta-data from MyMovies library and update Control4 Media Database - Auto scan option to keep database up to date automatically - Updates as though via Control4 Media management so independent of media player in use Stonetree_SMTPClient - Connect to any SMTP server using plain or user authentication or none - Supports SSLv2, SSLv3 and TLSv1 connections - Support StartTLS negotiation, pot 587, as used by Microsoft, Google and other major providers - Uses standard Email Notification templates within Control4 to define emails - Provides SendMail and QuickMail programming commands - Supports embedding of Project variables within email body Stonetree_SkyBox - Sky+HD driver for UK satellite receiver - Provides serial feedback of channel detail and updates standard Navigator media notification display - Can be controlled using IR or via Dusky Sky Controller - Option to define an Action Key to send commands direct to the TV allowing for quick control of SmartTV functions eg. 3D mode - Optonally store up to 10 favourite channels and skip back and forth through favourites Stonetree_SkyController - Control up to 15 Sky boxes using a Dusky Sky Controller via serial connection All versions have been updated to 2.2.0 so should get copied to the controller but in case of issues please remove the existing drivers from the project and also manually from the /etc/c4i directory on the controller. Future versions can be updated automatically with the no need for Director restarts, unless other aspects of the driver outside of code have changed. Thanks David Drivers.zip
  7. It seems if the API features in My Movies were leveraged correctly, we could get some media management that is sorely missing right now. From the My Movies support forum: "There is no way to have multiple databases, no. The My Movies software operates with both categories, and parental controls that can be blocked to parental levels and specific categories, but these features are not available in the Control4 driver. The API does support maximum parental levels and such functions, but it is not used in the Control4 driver. Having multiple databases is a workaround that you are looking for because of limitations with what the driver and the Control4 system provides, but it is not how My Movies operate, and it will not be in the future either. There is one database, with options to separate it using the meta-data."
  8. Just listed my server in the classifieds section Let me know if you have interest or any questions I can help you with Link with the listing: http://www.c4forums.com/topic/14212-dd-smart-media-server-12tb-wc4-integration/
  9. Hi All, Following much testing, help and support from many of you here on the forum I have completed V2 of my Driver Bundle set. The drivers will run on 2.5.0 and above and have been tested on controllers HC-200, HC-250, HC-300, HC-800 and HC-1000 although the faster HC-250 and HC-800 controllers are recommended especially with the MyMovies driver. Documentation is included with each driver but in summary there are 5 drivers as follows :- Stonetree_DriverCentral ---------------------------- This driver is required by all other drivers. It's job is to provide several common functions and also enable central management of the drivers for future updating. This driver should be installed first. Future enhancements include automatic updating of the full driver set. Stonetree_MyMovies ------------------------ Driver to extract meta-data from the MyMovies database and populate the Control4 media management database. The driver is completely independent of any media player driver. Future enhancements include integration into Plex Media server. Stonetree_SMTPClient -------------------------- Driver to enable sending of email via any SMTP server including those that use StartTLS SSL connections. The driver uses the standard Control4 email notification agent and also has a QuickMail command to allow sending of quick messages. Stonetree_SkyBox --------------------- Driver for UK Sky+HD and Sky+ boxes that allows control via IR or the Dusky Sky Controller. The driver has serial feedback which populates the standard media information on the Navigators within the room viewing the Sky box. There is also the ability to assign an Action Key on the remote control that allows for the sorting of favourite channels and also sending commands direct to the TV, video endpoint, in the room avoiding the need to switch sources. This allows for easier control of Smart TVs, such as accessing Skype calls, 3D and also entering the normal TV setup menus to make quick changes. Future enhancements include simple scene setting from the control available to the enduser. Stonetree_SkyController ---------------------------- Driver to allow SkyBox driver to control the Sky Box using the Dusky Sky Controller. Thank you to everybody who has helped test the drivers and for the invaluable feedback. Have fun. Thank you. David. Driver Bundle.zip
  10. All, I have been working on several drivers that I have started to use in our projects as standard in new build properties in the UK. I am will be gradually adding more drivers as time goes on but thought that I would release the set that I currently have as I am now happy that they are working stable on several systems including my own. The drivers all need a the installation of a common driver called Stonetree_Command.c4i which provides some additional Lua modules for XML parsing and SMTP negotiations over SSL. I currently have 2 drivers in the bundle :- Stonetree_MyMovies.c4i - This uses the MyMovies application to update the standard Control4 Media database with its meta-data. The movies can then be played in the normal way on any supported Media player. Stonetree_SMTPClient.c4i - This allows the sending of email to many different SMTP servers supporting plain, SSL and StartTLS negotiation. The driver also uses the stand Email Notification agent to send emails but can also send Quick emails directly. Documentation is incorporated into the drivers. Where possible I have tried to use standard agents/features within Control4 rather than re-eventing these aspects to work specifically with my drivers eg. MyMovies works along side the standard Media management and the SMTP driver sends emails setup using the stand Email agent. Drivers to follow include :- Sky+HD serial feedback driver to report program details being watched. Also may add ability to control4 Sky box via the RF port using a direct connection from a C4 IR port or the use of the Dusky Sky controller. Heatmiser Thermostat integration with ability to set overall house modes. Any comments much appreciated. Thank you David Stonetree Driver Bundle.zip
