    LOL, the worst part is that I have one as well...Just found it again last week and never bothered to set it up as MSN is on its way out....

    I'd love to try this script out except that I use a Homeseer SE Pro (which is hidden away and I'd rather not plug in the i-buddy directly to it). I don't suppose there would be a way for me to hook up the i-buddy to my regular desktop and have it interact with either my Homeseer SE Pro or ISY994i?

        I like these sort of plugins for lots of reasons, but the main one is:

        It becomes more and more likely that we will see the Jon00 Mind Reading Plugin , if you are able to automate an msn accessory mind reading is not that far off .

        Could i make a fun suggestion, your next automation plugin should be to create a plugin for one of those USB dart guns, that would bring homeseer to a whole new level .

        e.g. if house is armed, and wrong code is entered then fire NERF dart at position x

        lol

            Hmmm, did some searching and can't find any place to purchase one in the USA.

            Even tried Amazon and eBay, nothing found.

            Anybody have better luck?

                  Do a search on Google.com (shopping) for "i-buddy msn"

                      By the way, I forgot to mention in the docs that you can just plug the device into a USB port and it will be recognised by Windows (XP upwards) without additional drivers. I tested this in XP and Win 7.

                          Nice...

                          Hello Jon,

                          this is a funny and interesting idea ...

                          Installed on 3 computers (yes 3 i-Buddy's) and I'm using the colors of the head to display the weather forecast for the next day.

                          The position of the wings to identify the closing / opening of the outside gates.

                          I tried to install on 2 other computers (Kid's school computers with windows 7 professional - 32 bit), but contrary to normal, i-buddy is not recognized and when I try to run the executable (jon00ibuddy) get a warning "Jon00iBuddy crashed"

                          ...Yes ... the installation was done properly (in the same way as other PC's operating well) and as described... checked several times

                          Any idea why this error?

                          On computers that fail I also tried to install the i-Buddy manager (from the installation cd) and it runs (does the basic moves)...

                          Thanks!

                            So is this just working on 1 PC at the moment?

                            Did you copy all the Homeseer DLL's to the client directory? There should be 6 files in total within the directory.

                            I would also remove the i-buddy manager as there will be a conflict with the software trying to use the same USB dll.

                              No at this moment it's working in 3pc's (homeseer server + 2 desktop)
                              But I would like to have it running in the homeseer server and in the kid's computers...
                              Yes I copied all the files as instructed
