[Remote-Control] Shutdown, Configure and Update your MagicMirror


  • Module Developer

    Hi again! I’ve been using your excellent module since I started my build. And all along I had it in an “IFrame” on the mirror (the IFrame is shown via a touch on a button MMM-ModuleBar). However, about 2 moths ago, your module no longer shows up in the IFrame (it’s just black on the Mirror). However if I use another browser (not Electron) the IFrame shows the Remote Control. Also it shows up “remotely” both if I go directly to the Remote Control address and if I open the full Mirror in another browser.
    I’m not sure where the problem is. If it’s on your module or in Electron.
    I have another “web-interface” (SONOS Web Interface) in another IFrame showed the same way and that still works.
    I’m on the dev branch of MM.

    Let me know if you have any ideas… 🙂



  • I downloaded this module today and its been the best one so far. It has everything in it that I have been trying to accomplish for weeks. I wish I saw this one sooner. I have only one issue, when i click the restart MagicMirror button i get an error and my MagicMirror dose not restart.

Hi! First of all thanks a lot for creating this awesome module, it really expands the capability of what a Magic Mirror can do.

I just wanted to point out that I had an issue turning on the screen after turn it it off using the module. I went to the “node_helper.js” file to see which function you were using:

 if (query.action === “MONITORON”)
    {
    exec(“tvservice --preferred && sudo chvt 6 && sudo chvt 7”, opts, function(error, stdout, stderr){ self.checkForExecError(error, stdout, stderr, res); });
    return true;
    }
    if (query.action === “MONITOROFF”)
    {
    exec(“tvservice -o”, opts, function(error, stdout, stderr){ self.checkForExecError(error, stdout, stderr, res); });
    return true;
    }
    This function wasn’t really working for me and it seems a bit outdated. You can go further on the reasons why on this links:

https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/questions/52042/turning-tvservice-on-and-off-leaves-screen-blank

http://www.elinux.org/RPI_vcgencmd_usage

I just changed that code to:

    if (query.action === “MONITORON”)
    {
    exec(“vcgencmd display_power 1”, opts, function(error, stdout, stderr){ self.checkForExecError(error, stdout, stderr, res); });
    return true;
    }
    if (query.action === “MONITOROFF”)
    {
    exec(“vcgencmd display_power 0”, opts, function(error, stdout, stderr){ self.checkForExecError(error, stdout, stderr, res); });
    return true;
    }

And everything seems to work perfectly for me now. I’m using a Raspberry pi 1 and Midori as a web browser. 

My question is, would you be able to implement this changes in order to solve this issue for another users? (and also to keep my same valid configuration in case of an update)

Thanks!

    I have not been able to work on anything mentioned here, yet, but at least got out a release with a few cool contributions by other people, and a few simple fixes and additions. I do not know when I will be able to look at your questions and issues, but maybe in one or two weeks (especially turning display on and off apparently works much better with the vcgencmd command). If anyone is reading is this in the hopes of finally getting an answer from me, please feel free to post again and remind me, if have not been able to solve it yourself.

    Here is the change log:

    [1.1.4] - 2017-09-17

    Added

    • Dutch translation
    • Updating a module tries to install dependencies with npm install
    • Module identifier is shown if a module is locked with lock strings
    • Confirmation dialog before restart and shutdown

    Fixed

    • Internal save file format and mistakenly hiding modules which were hidden by other modules
    • Restart should work for new installations

    Changed

    • German translation for power menu changed from “Ausschalten” to “Energieoptionen”


  • @Jopyth Thanks for the update!



  • So, I’m having a really unexpected bug, where this module somehow negates my custom CSS for the header color of all modules. No idea how/why, but when the page first loads, it’s fine, but as the last of the modules (including this one) load and are activated, the color suddenly snaps back to the default #aaa.

    I know for certain it’s this module, since disabling it in the config fixed the header issue. I think this was introduced in the newest update, but I’m not 100% for-sure positive. I do know it started right around the most recent release date though.



  • @Jopyth
    Hello, excellent module. I have built the translation file into Spanish: es.json
    you want it?

    @pepebc Sure. Can you make a PR?

    @pyrosmiley Did you start using the brightness adjustment? That definitely overrides brightness of headers and text. Maybe reset to default? That should solve the problem.
