    AW: Imon Display and MediaPortal !!

    I know Soundgraph is really doing some odd polictics, that I'm not able to understand.
    I upgraded to Imon 7.91.xx, where the mpdisplayplugin doesn't work anymore and it's not so important, because I'm using Fortherecord and the proper mp-client, where I had severe problems using the display. And there were also some before, when i.e going into standby with my machine, because the display still stood bright an so on.
    But that doesn't really matter, it's just a litte embarrassing, that the display in my Antec Fusion was never able to do its job, as it should have done. Soundgraph has just produced a lot of hot air (seeing their Roadmap ...) the last year and I'm really sorry about that - so my personal impression.

    I have always had trouble with Imon, and currenly have 7.60 working with the VFD only (using intelliremote and a different remote - mainly because I always have trouble with the imon pad remote constantly in mouse mode).

    I recently installed the the latest version of the imon software and the beta API patch which includes an option to "always use keyboard arrows", which I selected. For the first time ever this made the arrow keys work in keyboard mode instead of mouse mode in MP.

    Of course, by doing this, it has completely "broken" the VFD function. However, I then uninstalled the latest version of imon and reinstalled 7.60 and bizzarly, it the keyboard arrows are now working perfectly (i.e. not in mouse mode).

    Also, the remote switches between applications (such as PDVD run by multishortcut plugin) perfectly.

    I am not sure if this will work for others, but it seems to be a fix to all my woes.

    1. So to re-cap.
    2. Install imon 7.60 and re-boot.
    3. Configure MP minidisplay plugin (don't select any of the driver initialisation/reset/restart options).
    4. Install the latest imon software
    5. Install the imon beta patch.
    6. Edit the properties of imon to force keyboard arrows (also set up keyboard arrows to be used for applications - mediaportal.exe)
    7. Check keyboard arrows work with MP
    8. Uninstall imon
    9. reinstall imon 7.60
    10. Configure the imon manager (remote functions etc)
    11. Ensure mp minidisplay plugin is still working
    12. Run MP

    Enjoy

    Ultimatelly, from what I can tell (from a statistical sample of 1 ;)) the remote control functions perfectly with the latest version of imon with API patch, I understand the reluctance to waste time on imon (from a dev perspective), but it may be a good platform to build the VFD function onto.

    AW: Imon Display and MediaPortal !!

    Hi,

    I've developed a MiniDisplay driver for iMON VFDs running the current version of iMON Manager (8.01.0419). It is using Soundgraph's iMON Display API. You can find it here: https://forum.team-mediaportal.com/...minidisplay-driver-mediaportal-1-1-3-a-95616/

    Be aware: It's for VFDs only. I don't have a LCD case and did not like the idea of providing some driver without testing...

    Cheers,
    Stefan
