    AW: iMON VFD MiniDisplay driver for MediaPortal 1.1.3

    Great Job! Thanks a lot for this. It's the first time, that MP works with imon SW (8.04) and LCD as well as my Logitech Remote doesn't cause any trouble.

    There's just one litte problem and I hope it is ok to mention it:
    It seems that there is a delay in the lcd. Changing eg from Radio to TV is not as fast as it was before. It takes nearly a second to show the selected function in the LCD. Changing the delay in the configuration doesn't seem to have any effect on this.

    Nevertheless absolutely amazing. Thanks again!



    bye

    AW: iMON VFD MiniDisplay driver for MediaPortal 1.1.3

    Hi Guys,

    I'm sorry, but recently I haven't found much time to continue my work on the plug-in. Therefore I'm very glad to see that Cinnabuns continued my work and made the plug-in working for the LCD users.

    Cinnabuns: Thanks for your work. In the meantime I've figured out how to get rid of the need to start the iMON Software in Administrator mode when configuring the plug-in in MediaPortal. The following code will do the trick:

    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2.   // Determine OS
    3.   OSVERSIONINFO version;
    4.   version.dwOSVersionInfoSize = sizeof(version);
    5.   GetVersionEx(&version);
    6.   if (version.dwMajorVersion < 6)
    7.   {
    8.     return;
    9.   }
    10.  
    11.   // Determine and allow iMON message number
    12.   UINT iMonMsg =
    13.     RegisterWindowMessage(
    14.     TEXT("iMonMessage-431F1DC6-F31A-4AC6-A1FA-A4BB9C44FF10"));
    15.   ChangeWindowMessageFilter(iMonMsg, MSGFLT_ADD);  
    16.  
    You have to execute it before making any iMON API calls. Background: The iMON Display API and the iMON Manager use Window Messages to communicate with each other. However, due to User Interface Privilege Isolation (Windows Vista Application Development Requirements for User Account Control (UAC)) a lower privilege process cannot send window messages to higher privilege application windows. If the iMON Manager process and the process using the iMON Display API have different privilege levels, the iMON Display API does not work out-of-the-box. With the above code you allow the iMON Manager to send window messages to your application in case it is running on a higher privilege level.

    Yes 1.1.3 so do I have to reinstall Mediaportal with the latest downloadable version to get the current plugin version?

    The point is that I cannot get my iMon LCD working with the version I installed.

    What version of this plugin have you installed. The one from Post 65 is the one you want.

    (assuming you have a compatible LCD).

    For me, the disc idon flashes every time I press any remote button, so I presume getting other functions would be fairly easy....?

    Grats newa Robbo100, now I don´t use any remote and I didn´t know ;)

    It would be great to have the option to keep the disc icon spinning while a file is playing
