I would normally agree but if you think about it, how many people in a house are going to be working in the IE at the same time. You can always put a refresh button on it so if the template they are wanting is not there they can hit the refresh. Or if they try opening a template that was deleted else where just give a error that the selected template was deleted else where.

I know that in my house and in all my customers, I am the only one using the IE.

If that device sends out something over a serial port, you can use the new generic reciever driver to respond to it and kick off something. It's just like an IR type driver, but it just responds to an incoming message on the serial port. You'll have to force the string out a few times to train it, which might be hard if it only happens when the power goes off. But you could always send that same message via HyperTerm just to train the driver.

Yeh, that would probably work.

It runs on USB though I guess I could get a USB to serial adapter. Can this driver monitor the port if it's in use by something else? I'd like to keep the APC applet going too.

Training shouldn't be hard. Just pull the plug...

Only one program can use the serial port at once, so the driver would have to open it.

Request: The ability to call a CQC event (or global action) from a command line. That would make 1way SageTV integration dead simple. Obviously 2way would be best, but it's still TBD how beelzerob is going to be able to do that.

You can already run a CML macro from the XML Gateway, which effectively would provide a way to do this.

eh, *you* can, but god knows I barely understood what that meant :-)

I think Rob is already using the XML Gateway inside of Sage right? Or was going to. If so, then he would already have a means to allow you to execute a CML macro from within Sage in that case, which would let you do stuff drive by the user invoking something from within Sage.

Statefullness with the CQC Variable Driver. if CQC had a native way to store the values of the CQC Variable Driver fields, that would be a very beneficial addition.
