Short answer is yes!I'm not sure of the
time limit but there is one. I have my
attention phrase reply with a wav file but
you could set it up to reply with "Yes
Bart, What would you like me to do?"
you don't need AHP to play with the voice
recogintion part just to send x10 commands.
down load it and set it up the way you'd
like then once you have your AHP Hardware?
software you'll be ready to go.

Oh, cool! I didn't even think about playing
with it just to trigger PC events! Thanks
for pointing that out!

At x10dispatcher, there are 2 different
downloads for Soundpacks (Soundpack and
Soundpack2). What are these used for?

Thanks again for all of your answers to my
questions! You've been very helpful!

Okee...here's my next thing. I've got BXVC
and Dispatcher installed. Been playing
around with BXVC and it seems pretty easy to
use. Now, what I want to know is, how do you
use it to make Dispatcher trigger a specific
audio file? I played around with Dispatcher
a bit and can't figure out how to tie it all
together.

Keep in mind, I do not yet have AHP
installed. Is that something I need to have
installed before I can trigger an audio file
by using a voice command?

Heheheheh...just giving the attention phrase
and having the PC respond back already got a
big OOOOOOOOOO from the wife and kids. This
is going to rate high on the WAF!!

Both will tie together with AHP. You need
to be able to send x10 commands,
x10dispatch will see them and respond to
them with an alert of any number of things
including activating a program. have fun
setting everthing up. Once you have AHP
everthing ties together nicely.The AHP
software doesn't need to be running but you
need the files included for everthing to
interface with the hardware.

Tuicemen,
Thanks for pinch-hitting on these
questions.  I think my DSL has been messed
up the last couple days.

Bart,
If you speak the attention phrase and don't
immediately follow it with a command, BXVC
will give you 20 seconds to speak a command
without having to repeat the attention
phrase and in the meantime it will respond
as you have asked it to under "How should I
respond when I hear the Attention Phrase?"
Also, when you set up your X10 modules, try
to give each module a different
housecode/address combination, that way you
can address each one individually.
When giving "human" names to modules I like
to get specific, like "Master Bedroom
Lamp", "Front Porch Light" or "Livingroom
Light" that way the name of the device
specifies the room it is in.

Hope you all enjoy BXVC and have happy
holidays if I don't post again before then
(and even if I do!)

Cool stuff, guys! You have NO idea how much
I appreciate all the help! Now if you can
just figure out how to tie these programs in
with my remote card starter! LOL!

Even though my x10 stuff is not here, I do
have the download for AHP. I am assuming
that I can go ahead and install it just to
get BXVC and Dispatcher to work together,
even without the cm15a plugged in.

Also, when I was talking about being able to
voice command to load individual songs, I
guess the most you can do this way would be
256, since there are only 256 available
codes. Obviously this would leave zero codes
for modules and stuff. Is this how you have
to activate everything? By unique x10
house/unit codes with BXVC and Dispatcher?
Even an individual song file has to
correspond to a unique x10 house/unit code
in order to have BXVC respond to the command
and to have Dispatcher trigger the audio
file. Is this correct?

Bart,
Oh... sounds like you figured that out
already.

ALL,
I should have Version 0.43 on the site in
24 hours or maybe less.  Not much has
changed, some more variations on brighten
and dim commands, and you can now ask about
the current date and time.  I'm sure
there's more, but I'll be darned if I can
think of what right now...  I need a
vacation or maybe a new job (any offers?) :)

Bart,
I know there is a scripting interface I can
use to get BXVC to control Windows Media
Player, I just haven't experimented with it
enough yet.

For now, I guess the answer to your
question would be yes, each song would have
to have an X10 address of its own.

Hmmm...I installed AHP and I can't get it to
load a program by voice. I'm wondering if it
has anything to do with that I don't have
the cm15a installed yet and the drivers
weren't loaded. Maybe the drivers need to be
installed before everything works correctly.

Here's what I did. In BXVC I created a new
device called 'song' and associated it to
a1. In Dispatcher, under the x10 trigger
tab, device code a1, command on, run command
C:\Documents and
Settings\HP_Administrator\Desktop\song.mp3.
As far as source tranport, I tried both plc
and rf. None of the other boxes have
anything in them.

I give the 'Song On' command and nothing
happens. Is there a step that I missed or am
I needing the cm15a drivers to function
properly?

Here's something else. At x10Dispatcher,
there is a download file called
ahscript_setup.exe. When I try to install
it, nothing happens. I click run and nothing
happens. Hmmm.....

Something else I just thought of, too. Next
to the 'run command' box, when I
click 'test' nothing happens.

I did try a different audio file that was a
WAV, just in case Dispatcher has a problem
playing mp3's. No dice...

Here's a little more info about my problem.
When I use the 'test' button next to the
file I have entered in the 'run command'
box, here is an error that is showing up
when I look at the status window...

2:37:05 AM: Error Launching Command :
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: The
system cannot find the file specified
at
System.Diagnostics.Process.StartWithShellExec
uteEx(ProcessStartInfo startInfo)
at System.Diagnostics.Process.Start()
at w.c(String A_0)

Lack of drivers from not having x10 hardware
installed yet? *scratching head*

Bart for your questions on X10 dispatch try
looking
at:http://www.accessha.com/forums/forumdispl
ay.php?f=28
Dave monitors this section of the board and
is quick at replying there may be a bug in
the latest release which you have found
although it maybe just that you don't have
the CM15A yet .

Bill not a problem! I'm looking forward to
the next release (an early Christmas
present?) Thanks ! Hopefully I'll have one
for everyone as well. I'll e-mail you a
sample.

Thanks! I'll go make a post over there and
see what Dave has to say.

I have a question about BXVC. Is there a way
to minimize BXVC to the system tray so it's
not showing in the task bar while running?
If not, there is a good suggestion for ya!

Just click on the button top right hand
corner. But it would be nice if it auto
minimized on startup. I think I suggested
this but if not good suggestion! We'll see
whats in the next release. :)

All,

BXVC 0.43 is on the website:

http://www.wgjohns.com/bxvc.htm

(there should be no spaces in that but there might be if you copy it on this forum so be careful!)

Expanded commands for dimming, added commands to ask for the date & time eg. "(attention phrase) what time is it?", and now if you say "thank you", "thank you very much", etc. within 20 sec. of a recognized command the program will respond!  Also added some more start & stop listening commands, "Shut up", "Listen to me".  And yes tuicemen an option to start minimized (Sorry Bart, it still takes up space on the Task Bar, but I'll work on the System Tray thing.

Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night!

(Happy New Year too)
