  • Everythings SEEMS to be working, but I get no sound.

    Downloaded the plug-in from the updater and restarted HS. I enabled the plug in. It immediately logged the following:

    All looks good. AppleTVs did not do anything, but the VSX-1121 noted it joined the network and went into AirPlay mode.

    I ran a Weather XML script:

    7/9/2013 10:52:12 AM AirplaySpeak (Apple TV,Apple TV Den): During the day, partly cloudy, with a 20 percent chance of precipitation. Nite time conditions will be partly cloudy.

Wend speed is 5.8 mph, coming from the Southeast. The wend degrees is 130. Current visibility is 10 mi. The dewpoint is 77 degrees .The barometer is 30.16 in and rising. The UV index is .

    No errors anywhere. BUT, there is no sound. I checked the volume on each device and all were fine. I disabled the AppleTVs and tried it with just the VSX-1121. Tried it with just the AppleTVs. No errors but no sound.

    I'm obviously missing something. It should be working. Any thoughts/ideas?

    Update.

    Ran Windows Update for some optional .NET 1,2,3,3.5 updates. The VSX-1121 began working!

    Still cannot get the AppleTVs to make a sound yet...... But this is pretty cool!

      Magic!

      OK, Magically the AppleTVs started working about 7PM today all on their own. I did nothing after about 4:30 this afternoon. My wife and I were watching a TV program on Netflix and on came an announcement!

      If for just the AppleTVs, this plugin needs a way to remember where it was before an announcement and then go back to it after the announcement. It seems to work fine in a menu, but if there is a movie or show running, it goes back to the show's menu and resets to the beginning. This is a bit of a deal killer unless there is an easy way to turn the plugin on and off based on something....

        I'm glad you made it work for all your devices. If you ever find what was the problem, please let us know, it might help some other users.

        As for your AppleTV problem, there is an easy way to enable/disable one device through scripting:
        Sub Main(parm as object)
        hs.Plugin("AirplaySpeak").SetSpeakerEnabled("Airport Express 1", true)
        End Sub
        Another path to explore are the "Before Event" and "After Event" settings, in which you can set events to run before and after every annoucements.

        But anyway you need to find a way to detect when you play a movie on your AppleTV.
