I'm back after many years of hiatus.

I'd like to see mp3HD support as well as Winamp visualizations. Both MilkDrop and Advanced Visualizations.

PowerDVD Ultra config for HD/BR movies

Has anyone attempted to control PowerDVD Ultra for their HD/Blu-ray movies while also having TTek for their SD movies? Reason I ask is because TTek HD is way into the future. Not happening anytime soon according to Andrew @ TTek. I wish PowerDVD had TCP/IP control. That would be nice. I believe we c...

Insteon SwitchLinc dimmer.

Here is a screenshot of my settings. This acts just like FAST ON when I click the ON button from the Control Tab.

I appreciate your help Mario... I can't get this to work from within MLighting. I set the power on to 100%, and vary the ramp rate. It all appears to be the same a Fast On. I'm press the set button 2 times to confirm the ramp rate, and when I set the on level I press the set button once. What am I d...

Yes you can. But I have not been able to master how to make it work like a professional theater's lighting. I have the lights set as a group. What ramp rate would you suggest? Is there a way to adjust the ramp rate via MLServer vs. the physical switch? For example: If I'm not watching a movie, but I...

This is thru a MLServer command. Actually a macro that is executed when I click a movie thumbnail in DVDLobby. The lights go down. I would prefer a nice shallow ramp speed as if you took a manual analog dimmer on each light and slowly turned them down. And back up again so that you don't get blasted...

Smooth ramp down/up light control like theaters possible?

Has there been any success with duplicating the nice ramp down/up control of lights with Insteon? I mean equivalent to turning the analog knob on their control panel? Even though people like when the lights go out. It just isn't polished like a Crestron / AMX solution. The mechanical (tick-tick-tick...

I've noticed an extreme slowdown from earlier versions of MLServer and MLLighting plugin for Insteon dimmers. Even after a command is issued, MLServer becomes un-responsive and asks to Retry or Switch... a couple times before actually going where I click. This didn't happen before. Is this because o...

Well after working with SmartHome's tech support. I have it working. This is a strange one. If I place the Serial PLC in an outlet somewhere else, it will synchronize with the dimmers properly. If I leave it in it's orignal A/C outlet it can not synchronize. Remember this is where I originally place...

There is something definately wrong. Maybe not with the software. I did a reset on my dimmers and reload of firmware for the Serial PowerLinc.

One of my lights will not sync up with the PowerLinc. I will try again from scratch and see what happens.

I just installed the latest Insteon and MLLighting plugins and now my lights are delaying 10 seconds. The MLLighting plugin is having a problem getting the status "again". The database is fine showing master and slave. When I try to adjust the lights from within the plugin and make another change I ...

Man this blows.... I fixed the problem though. Turns out my client J.River Media center did not show the MusicLobby plugin even though I installed it 3 times on that PC. In Windows Explorer; I saw 2 Media Center folders instead of 1 as I expected. One was Media Center, the other was Media Center 11....

MusicLobby appears broken.. not sure how

I have been upgrading for the Theatertek and finally went back to music for a break. Guess what? It is not connecting now with the music server. In the setup tab I get a red dot AND I have disabled my firewall so this is not the issue on the MLServer computer and the client computer I would like to ...
