  • [VB.NET Script] bjd_chimes Script Discussion

    This is the discussion for a script to produce the grandfather clock illusion when using the <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comffice:smarttags" /><st1lace w:st="on"><st1:City w:st="on">Westminster</st1:City></st1lace> chimes. This script can also be used as a cuckoo clock.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>

    The script can be found here.<o></o>

          Is there a way to divert the output to a specfic speaker client?

            Not at this time... Right now when it plays at my house it hits all of the speaker clients. Would you like to be able to set a variable to ALL or HOST1:HOST2 or something like that? That would probably be a very small change. I'll look at it this week and get back to you...

            Thanks.

                    darren-mc, I added a variable called v_speaker to the program. Examples are provided in the script of how to set it. I also updated the installation steps to include setting the variable.

                    Basically two examples are provided. If you want the sound to go to all of the speaker clients then do nothing otherwise fill in the variable with something like: "Host1efault,Host2:*,Host3:Instance1"

                    Let me know if it works out okor if anyone has questions. I uploaded the new file to the script library.

                    Thanks for the suggestion.

                        Thanks, let me know if you run into problems.

                        TrOjAn, did you try using the volume control. Mine is set to about 20% which means that I can have the sound way up and then as the chimes play they come in much softer... Once they are done, the volume goes back up. Just a suggestion. Thanks for looking at it.

                          The Speaker client improvement works great...I presume that group name for vir devices can be changed.

                          thanks

                            Yes, the program uses the device and house code assignements in the vb script. You can change the group name, name, etc... as long as the house code and device codes don't change from what your originally set them up with in the script.
