In Response To: Re: Remote controlling the Slink-e (Dave Thomas)

The problem I now have is that the PC and/or the Kenwood receiver can respond to the kenwood_receiver:vol+

commands as fast as they are generated. The effect the user (my irate wife) sees is "coasting". She depresses

the vol+ command on the remote and doesn't release it until the volume is where she wants it. Unfortunately, at

this point there are many Kenwood:vol+ commands still being issued, so the final volume setting ends up way

too high.

I guess I'll try issuing one kenwood_receiver:vol command for every three or four received sony_tv:vol

commands that are sent to the msg_handler. Is there a better way?

The Slink-e->PC->Slink-e response times could definitely be improved a bit in my code at the expense of increased CPU use. I think your problem may actually have more to do with the fact the the kenwood:vol+ command you are sending out may be longer that the sony:vol+ command coming in, causing them to queue up. Does the kenwood command have code repeats? If it does, try making a special version of this file with no repeats and a sleep period which matches the pause between repeats.
