Remote Start/Stop/contact Closure
« on: April 06, 2015, 07:05:49 PM »
does RDJ 1.7+ feature remote start/stop from buttons on audio console via serial or serial/usb?

a friend was interested in this software but he needs to be able to do remote start/stop from audio board.

if it doesn't have this feature you may want to investigate adding it. it is a feature used by many broadcasters.

The problem is that serial ports do not offer anything resembling a contact closure or leads that you could query. The old IRQ driven Parallel ports did. But not many machines have those any more so that'd be a problem. A better solution might be to use an internal bug board and then write a driver to it and then use that. But it wouldn't be trivial.

Someone was talking about developing plugin for USB controller to connect serial input from console. Can't find the topic right now but it should be somewhere out there.

There is a pugin for controlling RadioDJ using MIDI controllers which may suit your need. That and plugin for Gamepad is included in default RadioDJ download inside disabled plugins folder.

We have built an Arduino board to go from contact closure to trigger the REST script running on our server to send the command to RadioDJ.

Why not monitor signals such as DTR, DCD, etc?

            Case IO.Ports.SerialPinChange.CDChanged

            Case IO.Ports.SerialPinChange.CtsChanged

            Case IO.Ports.SerialPinChange.DsrChanged

            Case IO.Ports.SerialPinChange.Ring

Since these pins apply voltage to ground for trigger, you could utilize a contact closure to either interrupt or apply the voltage, triggering a radiodj event?

I am using the gamepad solution. Just wired up the start buttons of the mixboard and conenct the USB gamepad to the computer. Another solution could be start through HTML commands and the REST server. I know it is written somewere.
