Hello,

i'm currently developing a wol service addon for xbmc. Unfortunately my python experience is very bad.

The service works when i hardcode the mac address in my script, but i wan't it to be configurable from the GUI. The GUI itself works too, but i don't know how to pass the parameter entered in the GUI into the WOL command.

The command working is:

Code:
xbmc.executebuiltin('WakeOnLan(40:61:86:02:ff:b4)')

I tried the following:

Code:
xbmc.executebuiltin('WakeOnLan(' + str(Addon.getSetting("mac")) + ')')

I can output the MAC into the logfile with this line:

Code:
xbmc.log("Send WOL package to " + str(Addon.getSetting("mac")))

Can someone please help me with this?

Stefan
