IVB\’s Home Theater and Home Automation

You don\’t have to spend a lot for that smarthome.

One more cool automation idea

Posted by IVB on March 29, 2007

I just had a cool idea tonight for merging a variety of the drivers to add WAF in a way that actually helps.

We use SageTV for DVR, and many times we turn the plasma off with the Sage UI up and manually turn off the receiver. This means that when we turn the plasma back on and decide to start playing something, we have to minimize Sage, turn on the receiver, then maximize Sage. Of course, this will hopefully be gone as soon as the Sage driver is enhanced, but until then I’ve added the following triggered event:

– When SageTV begins playing a show (detectable via the IP driver), check to see if the denon is on and set to the right source, right volume, etc.  If not, then set it to be.  That way we don’t to worry about anything, CQC will take care of it.
