Release Notes

MCE_dll v0.9.16.193

MCE_dll Installation instructions

Please read the included mce_dll.doc file for full documentation.

Install TcpIpController first which you can get from http://vmccontroller.codeplex.com/releases/view/45909 - the setupx64 one, it’s an msi file. Don’t forget to reboot after installation so that the http server runs.
I installed the windows 7 x64 version and haven’t tested with anything else but it should work okay with win 7 32 bit.
The dll file should be useable as-is without recompiles. If you want to make changes then I use Dev-Cpp and have included the project and make files.
Please let me know of any bugs, mistakes or possible improvements on the Discussions and Issue Tracker pages
Copy the MCEdll.dll, MCEdll.ini and MCE_dll.cfg files to your smartie plugins folder.
The MCE_dll.ini file contains channel number and channel names in the following form and you may have to edit this to your own local channels.

// MCE_dll ini file contains tv channel info in the form
// channel_number Channel_name
// blank lines and lines starting with / are ignored
//
// Freeview EPG - Scottish Freeview Channel List
// Channel Number	Freeview Channel Name
1	BBC One
2	BBC Two
3	ITV1
4	Channel 4

The supplied file contains the channel list for Freeview in the UK (Scotland).

The file mce_dll.cfg is in the plugins folder (although, if it’s not there, all the defaults will be used.). It contains the following configuration options:
//
// Double forward slash at the line start indicates a comment line.
//
// The following parameter allows you to use Bars instead of // elapsed time/total time displays.  If value is 0 or not present the time value will be displayed
// otherwise the value of UseBars is taken as the bar character code
// e.g.  62 is ‘>’  35 is ‘#’   129 might be a bar depending on what display
UseBars=0
//
// debug flag for MCE_dll (0 or 1)   Creates/Appends to the file plugins/mce_dll.log with trace info
// take care using this since it may create large files.
// if NewLogFile is 1 then a new file is created on each run otherwise messages are appended to the existing file
//
Debug=0
NewLogFile=1
//
// My version of the TCPIPController software sometimes gives a recording=true on startup. This parameter tells mce_dll to ignore it
//
IgnoreSpuriousRecording=1
//
// The following settings allow connection to TCPIPController on a different machine
// IPRemote tells the program not to check for MCE running (Because it can only check the local machine)
// The other two lines are the IP Address and port for TCPIPController
//
IPRemote=1
IPAddress=192.168.0.4
//IPAddress=127.0.0.1
IPPort=40400
