  1. Hmm. Do you know if there is an address reservation in the router for the Shield? If not it is possible that the Shield has been given a new address that is different than what's programmed in the driver. It shouldn't be necessary but try rebooting the controller since the IRUSB was installed after the driver was setup. What controller do you have and what version of C4?
  2. I know the Chowmain driver is one that requires a paid license; I do not know if it offers a trial but I'm sure it does. Is it possible the trial has run out or did you pay for the driver? The VideoStorm driver is free but does not offer some of the specializations the Chowmain driver does.
  3. They'll need to know the IP address of the Shield for it to work. Hopefully they have access to the router so they can use an address reservation.
  4. @videostorm I just realized where the text is that gives the title of the driver in Composer and modified it in the xml so the drivers can be differentiated. One says "Universal Android Driver With Amazon Icons" The other says "Universal Android Driver With Nvidia Icons" mediaplayer_android_irusb_amazon.c4z mediaplayer_android_irusb_shield.c4z
  5. @videostorm These files also include two extra icon sizes: 300 x 300 and 512 x 512 and the correct references in the xml for C4.
  6. I just downloaded the new version and it still has a couple minor typos, one of which still results in a generic icon. All entries that say "mediaplay_android_irusb" should say"mediaplayer_android_irusb" the other is just a mislabeled icon size. So I took the liberty of making the xml changes along with adding "shield" or "amazon" depending upon which icon pack is included in the c4z file. so the new location names in these two files are as follows: "mediaplayer_android_irusb_amazon" in the file named "mediaplayer_android_irusb_amazon.c4z" "mediaplayer_android_irusb_shield" in the file named "mediaplayer_android_irusb_shield.c4z" This way Shield owners have an actual Nvidia icon for their system instead of seeing Amazon. mediaplayer_android_irusb_amazon.c4z mediaplayer_android_irusb_shield.c4z
  7. Maybe it just needed some time to get it's mind right. LOL I've noticed some weirdness on the phone app in that the icon was showing, I took a screenshot, and when the app came back up the icon was completely gone until I left that screen and came back. Thank VideoStorm for the actual driver, I was just able to get some Nvidia icons into it. Glad you enjoy it!
  8. Hmmm. I'll need to do some research and figure out what size icon it wants to use there.
  9. Could you post a pic of the Neeo home screen?
  10. Ok, so I did some digging and figured out from the Apple TV IR driver that Jesse Smith made, that the icon locations listed in the xml have to match the driver filename. So I changed mediaplay_ip_amazon_fire to mediaplayer_android_irusb and BOOM! I now have the Nvidia icons I chose to use both in the app and on the OSD. I was even able to get the logo to show in the identification window. I included the rezipped file that I made for personal use as a Shield driver. The only changes I made were the icons, where they are located in the driver, corrections to location information in the xml, and correction to the information for "identify_image.gif" mediaplayer_android_irusb.c4z
  11. I didn't change any of the text in the xml. That being said I did notice that all the icons in the original are Amazon icons but they never showed up anywhere either.
  12. Ok. Regarding the idea of having Shield icons, I have tried the route of unzipping the c4z file, replacing all the png files and rezipping into a new file. I downloaded a 1024x1024 png icon and ran it through the C4 icon tool to generated the images. I then deleted the driver in the driver folder and copied in the new file with Shield icons. Then I deleted the driver from the project, rebooted the controller, added the new driver, made connections, refreshed navigators..., and I still have a generic cable box icon for the shield. What have I done wrong? Thank you, Eric
  13. Also, @videostorm, is there any chance of actually getting Shield icons in the driver instead of Amazon? Thanks.
  14. What I've noticed with the new version is if I'm already using the Shield for an activity, selecting a new activity takes me to a recently used menu instead of the app I've selected. I have to "Room Off" before selecting a new activity and have it function properly.
