setting remote between multiple devices

Postby cabinetmaker » Wed Mar 26, 2014 10:11 am

Ok I have a feeling this is a dumb question, but I don't see it being asked anywhere else in the forums. I have 4 DVD changers, and thus the specific changer for a specific disc gets set during the play movie command. Now that the browser version is working in kiosk mode for me with the newest release, I've been experimenting with it (Amazing work BTW Dave). So I switch between my old slate and using my PowerBook for Mainlobby, but I can't see a way to synch the remotes between the devices without using the play movie command which obviously isn't an ideal solution. In other words; If I start a DVD on the slate, I can't use the remote tab on my PowerBook and vice versa. Am I missing something? Is there another way to do this that I'm failing to see?

In the DVDLobby playmovie command you would have to define some global server variables that hold the active player and remote code.

Like:
Macro|
SetVariable|Movies_PlayerName~CX7000ES!
SetVariable|Movies_ActivePlayer~<<ChangerNumber>>!
SetVariable|Movies_ActivePlayer_{{clientname}}~<<ChangerNumber>>!
DVDLobby|MakeSource~{{Movies_PlayerName}}!
AV.BDP{{Movies_ActivePlayer}}|DiscDirect~<<SLOT>>~1~1


Then in the startup command on the movies page add the following command
Macro|
SetVariable|Movies_ActivePlayer_{{clientname}}~{{movies_activeplayer}}!
DVDLobby|MakeSource~{{Movies_PlayerName}}

Then all the clients should be pointing to the active remote control codes for the movies.
