  • MitsubishiTV Plug-in

    Released version 2.2.1.1 sent to updater...

    This is a compact .NET3.5 plugin built using strict adherence to HomeSeer's plugin API, ensuring future generations of plugin will take full advantage new features in HomeSeer or .NET3 when available.

    This plug-in performs Mitsubishi TV Input, Channel and Power switching for HomeSeer 2.1 or higher. Simple commands can be sent via Events or scripts.

    This is a no frills plugin, designed to perform reliably and quickly. Configuration INI file stores configs, and various presets, Debug with verbose Logging flag. Configuration web page is accessed through HomeSeers Setup-Interface link using standard HomeSeer API rather than ASPX and additional files.

    Please note that the help file MitsubishiTV-Doc.htm contains info on how to use the plug-ins commands. The help file is available from with-in HomeSeer.Help Tab.

      Yes, I need to find a screen capture app to do so...There really isn't much in the way of buttons, dials, and GUI, just plain ol serial port control using simple script commands that I've made visible or public. I didn't even create any devices except the plug-in status itself, didn't really see a need for it??? This plug-in is simply a automation tool, to complement other plug-ins of like nature, ie.

      Use "DVD's Collection" to catalog your DVD's and if you have a changer like the Sony CX777ES then you can control the changer. If you have a Denon AV Receiver you could also change modes and volume ect, and last but not least the Mitsubishi TV's. use the sutto code below to help understand.

      DVD's Collection - Select DVD - Click Watch --- and the following happens...
      ----hs.Plugin("DenonAVR").PwrOn
      ----hs.Plugin("DenonAVR").SetInputAVR("DVD")
      ----hs.Plugin("MitsibishiTV").PwrOn
      ----hs.Plugin("MitsubishiTV").SelectInput("HDMI")
      ----hs.Plugin("CX777ES").PwrOn
      ----hs.Plugin("CX777ES").Slot("210")

      ----hs.Plugin("Curtains").Close
      ----hs.Plugin("PopCorn").Make

      a little exageration, but mostly true.

      I didn't see a need to to physically go to a web page and view devices like TV-On and TV - Muted,,,just seems obvious to me.

        fusion8design makes cropper which is a nice screen cap utility.

        question about the plugin: if you don't create any devices, how does one know the status of the tv (power, channel, input source, etc). Wouldn't this be interesting to know. do you have methods for script use to check these values?

          Since the TV is an output device, I would think that would be obvious, and CONTROL of the the TV, which is setting the TV to what you want does not require knowledge of where is was.

          Please give me some examples of what benefit, it would bring to have a page full of devices, showing status.

          It seems counter productive to me, as I often look at my status page and wonder why there are so many devices that I don't care about. Sometimes I think we (plug-in) authors tend to just add a whole lot of glizt and distract from the true intent of the plugin???

          Let me know what you guys think...

              Can't help you here, you would probably have better luck in a different forum, as this one is for a plug-in (Software) that communicates to the TV and enhances HomeSeer capabilities.
