CBL,

Could you explain your shopping list functionality? What do the buttons do on the scene? What if they want something thats not on the scene?

the shopping list buttons allow you to add, or with a second press, subtract items from the shopping list on the light of the screen. when thew button is pressed the item apears on the list. if their are items on the list 2 times a day the system will announce that items are needed and read off the list, this list will also be sent via a text message to the owners phone so they can get the list while they are out.

i can fit 18 buttons on the screen so the list for for essentials that they normally use.

CBL,

Thanks for the quick reply. Did you simply ask the client to list the 18 most common items?

About your screen with the weather, what e-mail and voice mail systems are you using to display new e-mail and voice messages?

Thanks for the info.

college,
I think he was asking how you are showing the display ontop of the MainLobby scene - did you superimpose a web scene with an inviso background? Did you build a 2 way interface to HS? Are you updating MLServer Variables via MLServeCmd.exe statements?

most oif the time i am using the weblobby function, all of the screens you see are made using asp which is really cool cause the clien can get pretty much the same screens via the internet if he needs to access the house remotley.

the menu on the side of course is mainlobby as are the jukebox, tv functions and dvdlobby components and the weather screen.

the rest is done with asp cause it allowes me greater flexability.

yes I hope to goto the next orlando show.

The above project is going well. EXCEPT the client cant seem to keep his friggin hands off the computer. countless times i have received a phone call with him bitchin only to find he was updating musics or dvd's and closed down one of the programs "cause it was in the way"

HOW doyou deal with soemthing like this? unfortunatly as of right now the client needs access to the machine to update dvd's and music. short of mareo making a touchscreen interface HINT HINT. i see no way to keep our hard work out of the clients hands. heavn forbid he downloads a virus

I'd start with a Girder - or other, if you prefer - loop to verify the existence of the various programs running and run them if not. I'd back that up with MLS doing the same thing in reverse (including looking for Girder, if possible/necessary).

The other thing I'd consider would be a "fix me" button on the main system's screen - maybe LOTS of places (menu, task-bar, etc) that would immediately restart anything that should be started.

I only deal with my own home users and guests and such, but certainly sympathize: they manage to find ALL sorts of ways to break things that I would have NEVER thoght of. :)
