    Hi Bart, Great work! I love your plugin. Main use for me is auto dimming lights when starting movie, light at the fridge goes on when pausing etc

    Have you ever considered creating a plugin for Vera for Mediaportal? I would love to be able to control Mediaportal via Vera (scenes), at least the basic functions like pause, play and stop.

    Keep up the good work!

    Hi.
    I can't figure out where to define scene triggers for starting, hibernating and exiting MediaPortal...

    I'm glad to announce a new version of the Vera Controller plug-in
    New features are:
    - support for MP 1.8.0
    - support for MP 1.9.0 pre release
    - Skin files for StreamedMP
    - direct scene control

    The last feature implements the ability to execute a Vera scene from any MP menu, by pressing * twice followed by a scene number 0-9 and confirmed by #.
    The scene can be assigned to a number in the assign action menu.

    Super BartEv!

    Q: I'm still on 1.5 and see you have 1.5 now in the plugin list. However the version number for 1.5 (1.0.1.0) seems older then 1.4 (1.1.0.1) is this correct?

    If anyone is interested; I have found a way to control MediaPortal via Vera.

    For this to work you need to install Wifiremote plugin for Mediaportal. This enables a TCP/IP interface that accepts Json commands. Check out the wifiremote wiki for all the commands. You need to set Wifiremote to an authentication mode of NONE. Probably you can also work with username/password but I did not test this yet. Best to test wifiremote with e.g. aMPdroid so you are sure it's working correct in that way!

    Below is the LUUP code that you can use to PAUSE. By changing the commands you can also do other stuff (Check out the wifiremote wiki for all the commands. ). This LUUP code can be used in e.g. scenes or PLEG etc. Replace IP with your mediaportals IP number and PORTNR with the WIFIremote port (default 8017).



    local Inlog="{\"Type\":\"identify\",\"Name\":\"Vera\",\"Application\":\"VeraGos\",\"Version\":\"0.0.1.1\",\"Authenticate\":{\"AuthMethod\":\"none\"}}"
    local wmcCmd = "{\"Type\":\"command\", \"Command\":\"pause\"}"
    local socket = require("socket")
    tcp = assert(socket.connect("IP", PORTNR))
    tcp:send(Inlog .. "\r\n")
    luup.sleep(100)
    tcp:send(wmcCmd .. "\r\n")
    tcp:close()
    return 0
