    DTBAddin stops responding to keyboard shortcuts

    I'm having an issue where the add-in does not respond to my commands for turning skipping on and off, skipping forward, and skipping back. I have these set to "s" for on and off, and "n,b" for forward and back. In most situations, the add-in continues to automatically skip commercials. The skipping forward and back never works, while the skipping on and off will periodically fail (and not work again until media center is restarted). I haven't figured out exactly what causes toggle on and off to break but it might be watching a show with no commercial files. I'm running Windows Media Center on Windows 8 x64 1.2.2.6 R6 - Early Access DTBAddin - 1.0.0.8

    Re: DTBAddin stops responding to keyboard shortcuts

     I have the exact same problem, with the exact same OS. Autoskip seems to be working but if I turn that off and try the skip forward/back buttons, nothing happens. Nothing in ehexthost_5484.log. Using DTBAddin1008R6.zip.

     

    Thanks, Tony

    I have the exact same problem. Was this ever fixed? I reinstalled the previous version now it works again.

    babgvant put a new compile up last night of the Windows 8 version. Have you tried that yet?

    I am using WIndows 7 64bit. I don't see a new build.

    It looks like the date didn't change. The revision number is the same, but it is a new compile. Please test it out.

    I can't tell if the skip on/off shortcut is working now, but next and back are both still not working. Are you sure it was a new build? The dates on the files inside the zip file are from a while ago.

    Hi Andy,

    I installed DTB 1227 & DTBAddin 1009 and got my first crash of the Addin today.  Here is an excerpt of the ehexthost_4068.log file which was generated.

    2013/06/09 07:47:44.25 : System.Runtime.Remoting.RemotingException: Requested Service not found

    Server stack trace:
       at System.Runtime.Remoting.Channels.BinaryServerFormatterSink.ProcessMessage(IServerChannelSinkStack sinkStack, IMessage requestMsg, ITransportHeaders requestHeaders, Stream requestStream, IMessage& responseMsg, ITransportHeaders& responseHeaders, Stream& responseStream)

    Exception rethrown at [0]:

       at babgVant.MediaCenter.Application.get_ShouldOverrideKeyHandling()

    This went on for several pages, let me know if you would like a copy of the log file.

     Thanks.

    Hi Andy,

     I recently installed DTB 1227 and DTBAddin 1009 on a w7 x64 machine and today the Addin had its first crash.  I have attached the ehexthost log file if it helps.

     Thanks,

    John.

    This error indicates that the IPC link from the addin to WMC is broken. If it doesn't go away when you reboot, that's a bad sign.

    Re: DTBAddin stops responding to keyboard shortcuts

    A shutdown and restart of media center and all was good again.

    I got this error in DTBAddin 1008 from time to time as well.

    Installed the new build and haven't had a failure with the skip on/off shortcut yet, but next and back are both still not working.
