  • SONOS HSTOUCH ART

    dear all,

    I have some difficulties showing the art of the sonos players in hstouch.

    I was using the isvideo with a refresh of 5 secs with this img url;

    http://IP/[$SCRIPT=&hs.DeviceString(art DEVURL)]

    this is functioning fine on my IOS based hsstouch, but my windows tablets are having issues. Are there better solutions to show and refresh the art?

    Bart

      Hi Bart, if I recall the syntax correct, you drop in an image object and link that to the Sonos HS device that represents the current and/or next album art. Each time the HS Device (art) changes, the image will automatically update on your HST screens.

          So I have spent 16 hours trying to get this same issue to work. I think my system might have an issue. The art changes correctly in the plugin in home seer, except the next song art never updates. I dont konw if that is my issue or not. either way, I can find the current JPG, but as soon as the song is done, the image is bad. I cannot find what link to send over to HSTouch that will autoupdate or add a number each time it changes.

          Any advice anyone???

            Not all stations provide next track info/art. I notice there is no track, album or artist so suspect whatever you are playing doesn't provide next track info.

              Thanks for the quick reply.. so i guess I am on the right track by placing http://192.168.1.24/images/Sonos/NoArt.png as my art location? This points to the noart picture.

              Thanks

                What are you trying to accomplish? Using this URL is NOT correct. Every track has a different art file name and is done on purpose so HSTouch would be triggered when the device which holds the art URL changes, it will update the image. If you are trying to use this on an HSTouch screen, you drop an image on the screen and set that the DEVICE that holds the art.

                  I'm sorry to be such a beginner.

                  I have the image on the screen, and i have its properties up, but i have no idea how or what it means to "set that the DEVICE holds the art"



                  Here is my screen. Thanks again. I will learn this, its a steep curve!

                    Have you clicked on the "Help" menu in the Designer? You get this : https://help.homeseer.com/help/HSTouch/static/ On the right pane are the properties you can set to /for an image you click on the left.

                      You see that status/trackingnormal field in the Element Properties box on the lower right? You click on it and it will give you the option to select which HS device. You pick Sonos Garage Art and I seem to recall there is a radio button to select status or value. I think it is status you select

                        Works Perfectly. Thanks so much Dcorsus. I dont think i would have figured that out, and frankly, i spent well over 20 hours looking at previous forum posts, so i dont know how anyone has gotten it to work.


                        I appreciatee your help so much!!!
