Compro Actionmate TV + FM embedding app
had afew mins spare today and decided to make a start on this app, it sits inbetween RR and the compro pvr app, so allows you to control it from RR. As the compro app puts everything on a OSD then its quite easy to use, and switchs channels alot faster than the winamp plug in.
So far I have working
size (swaps between fixed rate and variable rate screen)
multiscreen (shows all channels on one screen)
Sound (toggles from stereo / mono / sap)
As we only have 5 tv channels in the uk, the up and down buttons work great.
I have made the app use the comsend command, so you would just do a skin as normal in roadrunner, then use something like this line to call it...
B,-1,428,88,86,"LOAD;tv.SKIN;usbtv;C:\Documents and Settings\CdRsKuLL\Desktop\Compro Embedding\usbtv.exe;usbtv",
then for the buttons in the actual tv.skin you would use this
B,112,430,130,56,"SENDMSG;usbtv;up", (change channel up)
problems so far...
You need to wait until the compro app is loaded and the splash screen from it has been removed.
You cant switch between say music and tv without having to restart the compro app.. two reason for this. 1. for some reason I dont understand winamp refuses to play when the compro app is running.. you also still get sound from the compro app.
You can set the capture device to mute, so this would stop you hearing the tv whilst back on audio.. but I dont know whats stopping winamp playing again ? can anyone help ?
once I have done the tv one, I will be adding a FM one too :-)
