Any Plans For Recognising ClientName?

Postby jjjukebox » Fri Sep 21, 2007 8:37 pm

I would love to see TVLobby capable of recognising the <<CLIENTNAME>> or {{clientname}} in the WATCh command.

My system primarily uses UMPC devices as clients and when I move from one room/zone to another with the UMPC, I select the room I am in and commands maps run are then based on where I am located {{{{clientname}}CurrentRoom}}

Based on this I could have the TVLobby WATCH command then route all IR to room specific devices and update channel & program variables for that room.

Thanx

Great!

Got this to work by setting the Client_Of_XXXX variable when I enter my .mls scene on each client but the the <<CLIENTNAME>> in the WATCH command does not send the client name to my command map called in my WATCH command.

Had to use the {{client_of_xxxx}} instead of {{clientname}} in my command map.

Yes, if you check the Feature request thread, I did warn about the command map and MACRO not being expanded until the actual execution and other possible issues... ;)
