    LG WebOS Smart TV Remotes?

    Hi just wondering if your thinking about implementing a lg web os smart tv remote into this plugin as I would LOVE to have the ability to control the tv's power status as well!
    Thanks

    Yeah I was going to fiddle with that. Would be great if it could be done in a GUI. Also need to look and see what sort of daily digest things are out there, I sketched out what I would want to be included so that's done at least. Would actually pay for plugins to do either or both. Especially given the myriad of sources that are available.

    This package allows you to easily generate images on the fly by means of simple entries in an ini file. This can then be used in any application or hardware where

    Oh I didn't even think of doing it locally on the Windows machine running the plugin. Going to have to try that since I'm running Sighthound too and also wanted to see what could be done with the Chromecast.

    So the trick would be something like this:

    - say someone rings the front door bell and you have a camera that takes a picture
    - you kick off a script that copies the picture onto a folder that is "discovered" by your server
    - if you always use the same name for the picture (and just overwrite it) you could have created an event that had that picture already pre-selected and not your script kicks off an event that plays that picture on your TV
    - you start a time for how long you want the picture displayed
    - when time runs our, you issue a stop command and your TV goes back to what it was doing
    - you CANNOT overlay this picture on top of part of what you were watching

    Read up on the help file how to use servers and players and how to set up events.

    ps there is a way to embed a picture (more like an icon) in the toast message but don't think that's what you are looking for. There is also a notification pop-up on LG TVs (big banner on bottom you sometimes see) but I haven't figured out how to use it , might not even be possible to tickle it from an external app

    How big did you have in mind? Text or Image?

    That’s on the list I want to get the security camera footage or image to the TV on motion or on request. Also want to be able to push a dashboard to it.

    EDIT: Wait, it suddenly stopped. Can't see why.
    A restart of the plugin helped. I'll try again in a while.

    EDIT2: Seems to be stable now. I'll check again in an hour or so.

    EDIT3: Found the problem. If a devicestring contains HTML-codes ("<br>" in my case) it breaks, and can't be restored without restarting the plugin.[/QUOTE

    cant wait to get this implemented. Also looking to see how the upnp image pushing works. Oh biggest takeway you’re still using Kinect
    I read somewhere that you embed (MIME?) encode images in the Toast message you may want to google a bit for LG Toast message + image.
    To get say pictures on your TV, use the player device. Make sure you have a UPNP/DLNA server that holds your content (pictures, music, video) and make actions to send content to the TV. Read the help file :-)

    Haha! Kinect is awesome!
    I've still not forgiven Microsoft for giving up on it.
