Recommended Posts

hey guys

i want to fetch the artist of a music track or the name of the source from a specific zone. 
This text should be send to the KNX Bus.
i can see that the name of the zone is inside the room variables but it´s xml formatted.

is there a way to fetch these specific values or reformat the xml string to the values i like to have?

Thanks a lot for this driver. i did expect a "thats not possible", instead of making a new driver for that. 😘

No problem.  I already had most of the pieces to make this, it was a fun exercise.

Besides, no one gives KNX any love around here...  :P

Yes. I know, sadly! Most of my problems belong to knx and c4. 😆

btw: your driver is not encrypted. That helps me to get a better idea how drivers in c4 work aswell.  😎

In general, we (Control4 employed driver developers) would like to release unencrypted drivers whenever we can for that reason.

There are a *lot* of drivers we must encrypt, due to NDAs and / or manufacturers who otherwise don't wish to release their protocol, and/or require certificates or secrets to connect to their devices.
