But that would man that you have to restart boblight everytime you switch from zoomed to normal.

I am searching for a solution on the same problem.
I have a second boblight.conf and wrote a script that copys the config file to /etc/boblight.conf and restarts the daemon. But it seems that the addon has to be restarted also.
Does anyone know if it is possible to activate/deactivate an addon via command line?
I've found a solution for my Setup.

On my machine the Boblight starts to flicker if i restart boblightd several times.
A new configuration for boblightd and a restart of the daemon does not apply immediatly. A restart of the addon solves that issues. It is possible to start/stop an addon via jsonrpc.

On Linux you can use
Code:
curl -s -H "Accept: application/json" -H "Content-type: application/json" -d '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"Addons.SetAddonEnabled","id":1,"params":{"addonid":"script.xbmc.boblight","enabled":false}}' http://localhost:8080/jsonrpc
The JSON looks like
Code:
{
    "jsonrpc":"2.0",
    "method":"Addons.SetAddonEnabled",
    "id":1,
    "params":{
        "addonid":"script.xbmc.boblight",
        "enabled":false
    }
}
Possible values for parameter enabled are (bool)true, (bool)false and (string)toggle

Hardcoded black borders are especially a problem if you watch TV and if youre lights areas are quite small. I use e.g. one percent only.
Therefore i wrote some scripts that allow me to start/stop the addon and daemon and handle different configurations with only one button on my remote.

My configurations for the Daemon are splitted into parts. The common configuration is located in the file /etc/default/boblight.conf/device.conf and the lights specific files are located in the same path and named e.g 16:9.conf and 21:9.conf
According to the coosen configuration these files are put together in /etc/boblight.conf

I want to have the addon disabled on startup so i insert the addonId into the disabled table in the Addons DB before XBMC start up, if it doesn't already exist. I've done that via the script boblightXbmc which accepts one argument $1: on|off. If XBMC is running, the addon will be toggled via jsonrpc, if not its done directly in the Addons DB

boblightStatus checks if the addon is enabled or not. Just like boblightXbmc this is done via jsonrpc or Database.

toggleBoblight starts/stops the daemon and builds the desired configuration. Arguments are $1: on|off $2: configuration (here 16:9|21:9)

Here are my scripts. Maybe its useful for someone:
boblightStatus (check if addon is enabled)
Code:
#!/bin/bash

if pidof xbmc.bin > /dev/null; then
    STATUS=$(curl -s -H "Accept: application/json" -H "Content-type: application/json" -d '{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"Addons.GetAddonDetails","id":1,"params":{"addonid":"script.xbmc.boblight","properties":["enabled"]}}' http://localhost:8080/jsonrpc | egrep -o 'true|false')
else
    STATUS=$(/usr/bin/sqlite3 /home/xbmc/.xbmc/userdata/Database/Addons15.db 'SELECT * FROM disabled WHERE addonid="script.xbmc.boblight"')
    if [ "$STATUS" == "" ]; then

Boblight upstart (pre-start script)
Code:

if pidof xbmc.bin > /dev/null; then

    xbmc-send --action="notification(Boblight configuration,$CONF,5000,/home/xbmc/.xbmc/addons/script.xbmc.boblight/icon.png)"
fi

end script
XBMC Upstart
Code:
pre-start script
logger -t XBMC-INIT 'Checking Status of Boblight addon'
if boblightStatus; then
    logger -t XBMC-INIT "disabling Boblight addon"
    boblightXbmc off
fi
if ! pidof boblightd > /dev/null; then
    service boblight start
fi

end script

pre-stop script
if boblightStatus; then
    boblightXbmc off
fi
service boblight stop
end script
/etc/lirc/lircrc
Code:
# boblight toggle
begin
    prog = irexec
    button = toggle_boblight
    config = /usr/local/bin/toggleBoblight on 16:9 && /usr/local/bin/boblightXbmc on
    config = /usr/local/bin/boblightXbmc off && /usr/local/bin/toggleBoblight on 21:9 && /usr/local/bin/boblightXbmc on
    config = /usr/local/bin/boblightXbmc off
end
I know this is a whole bunch of code that surely could be simplified, but it works.
Dependencies are curl, sqlite3, logger, xbmc-eventclient xbmc-send

Check out my blog - it's for a rpi but conf file should be the same

The full config you using on you site is only for 1 led strip activated.

Yes that's right but it tells you how to do the 10 it's exactly the same for each strip

Not sure if it's mentioned before but some time back i asked for such feature and that is to toggle Boblight addon Off and On. (not using addon settings menu)
I was told that wasn't possible but today i found this topic Autoplay music when XBMC is idle and there is a toggle_service script in it that does what i want.
I'm sharing it here for other users who would like to have such function.

Edit:
Seems i'm to late. How could i miss this http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1583896

I added some new features to the plugin over the last few days that'll give you a little more control over when Boblight does what. You can disable Boblight for a given category and you can customize your settings better. Look for the updated version of the add-on as Memphis pushed it to the repo last night.

Thanks, i'll check it out.

Edit:
Looks good but only thing missing is to disable boblight when playback is paused.
I'm aware of the option to disable when screensaver is active but not sure how that should work, only with static boblight settings maybe?

Edit2:
Is it possible to disable leds using priority like done here?
Code:
bob.bob_set_priority(255) # we are shutting down, kill the LEDs

If so we could use it for pause handling or not?

Sorry if this has been covered, but does boblight work with vdpau accelerated video? (I have searched for VDPAU within this thread but the results were not conclusive).

I ask because I read in the adalight tutorial "Anything using hardware-assisted decoding or rendering — some DVD player software and 3D games — bypasses the normal frame buffer and are not accessible to code running on the computer".

Thanks for any clarification.

Hello guys. I've been installing all the stuff in my htpc.

I come from a raspberry pi with boblight working great! But I needed more power so I built an htpc.

All things are working for me. boblight up and working, boblight addon for xbmc connected to boblight. but...Even if I use the same values that I used for raspberry pi, or slow or fast. I'm getting like white fog in the leds while I play a movie. Do you understand what I mean? Black scenes arent black, are black with white fog...

These are my settings and my tuto http://www.grabthiscode.com/diy/how-to-s...ie-trying/

Do you know what is failling?

White fog? Are you leds burning or so? - sorry - but i guess without a photo or something nobody really knows what you mean Wink
