Not sure if this is a silly question :( 

Do I need Imon running as well or does this replace it?

Hi

Depends!   :)   (both are possible)

But depends on your LCD screen and what dll is compatible with it.

Most here as posted back a page seem to run it without imon (and that was my main reason to get rid of dodgy old code that is imon)

I have frontview+ setup and kodi inputted in the remote server for frontview+.  I can't seem to get Emby to work, I installed the plugin in my server but when I go to frontview+ and try and input Emby as the remote server and the local server ip for the remote server ip in frontview+(tried remote access ip for remote server ip in frontview+) and I put the port for emby which is 8096, I click verify and nothing happens.  I tried restarting and still nothing.  Any ideas?

Probably need a bit more info.

 

Are you in the right thread?  Are you using FrontView+ the application or LCD/FrontView+ API Plugin only?

 

As with LCD one - there is no where to enter details in FrontView+

 

Screenshots or log would be helpful.

This is what I am talking about, as you can see in the background I got kodi to work with frontview+ but emby is not responding to the info.

Ok, wrong thread then.

You need to enter those boxes - for Emby because it is a server based app (unlike Kodi) you need to enter the server IP in the remote IP setting, along with appropriate Emby username and password.

I did, I entered EMBY as the remote name, then I entered the local access ip number from my emby server for remote ip, then the port # which in emby is 8096, then I clicked get from ip for the mac address, and typed the username and password for emby connect since i don't use a password for logging into emby server.  I get error bad parameters.

Hi
Need to set up emby user for Frontview

Pretty sure emby connect details won't work and probably cause of issue.

Also don't worry about MAC address - is not needed and can be left blank (can be used for wake up via LAN) but would get connection working.

If still have issues turn on debug and trace logging and restart - and try to connect again - pm me zipped log and happy to have a look.

On FrontView Settings, Click Debug Logging and Trace Logging to enable.

 

Restart FrontView, try to logon.

 

Log is saved in %appdata%/FrontView+/log

 

Type %appdata% in a folder window

Go to folder Frontview+ and then folder log

 

Zip the log file and send.

Hi,

 

I've just finished assembled a new HTPC with a Imon Ultrabay I have from a previous one. The new PC is running under windows 10 x64 (the former was running windows 7 x64 with the soundgraph software).

I followed all the steps described in this topic, but when I start LCD Smartie, I get the "Load of plugin failed with #126: the specified module could not be found" message. After going through several posts in the LCD Smartie forums, I believed this is a problem related to .net framework which is running under the 4.6.1 version and not the 4.0 one. Does anyone encounter the problem ? Reverse to the .net framework 4.0 is not a solution (although it seems to work for several people) as I need  4.5+ version for other softwares...

Don't believe it will be .net framework version issue - as you can have them all installed at once. (At least I think you can )

Double check the dll you have selected within LCDSmartie - it likely relates to that selection.

& remember you do need to copy (and rename if needed the iMon Display Driver)

iMON_OEM_LCD.dll (iMON Display driver goes in LCDSmartie/display directory) Use if using iMON/enables icon support

Thanks for your reply.

The iMON_OEM_LCD.dll is installed in the LCDSmartie/display directory. The display works with screen 2 (LCDSmartie on 1st line, and date/time on the 2nd line) but not when trying to call a function with the FrontViewLCDSmartie.dll. I still believe this to be related to .net framework as I found several posts on the LCDSmartie forums telling about it (i.e. : http://lcdsmartie.or...6f732297da717).It's why I post here in the first place, to find if someone else had the same problem...

You likely need to install the correct .net framework.

https://msdn.microso...549e41e(v=vs.90).aspx

You can have 4.0 and 4.5 and 4.6.2 all installed at the same time. If however you uninstall 4.0 (as per the linked post) obviously it won't work. But having 4.0 installed does NOT upset the function of anything else using 4.6.2 etc.

Still remains to be seen whether .net framework is the problem though.
Although check this setting as well: (either adding or removing)

Many thanks Glenn for all your advices.

 

I finally solve the problem following the instruction of this thread : http://lcdsmartie.or....php?f=8&t=3377

I no longer have the #126 dll error when starting LCD Smartie, and the display is actually showing all the information I need when running kodi.

Hope this will help others.

 

Bruno

Hi! I have a question. Is it possible to use a progress bar? And how can I change the number of displayed characters in a Function 5:
Returns Current Time of Playback
eg:
00:04:44 to 0:04:44? 
And is it possible to use a graphic equalizer?
