Roon Controller

I have started work on a new plugin. :D

It makes extensive use of a python library created by Marcel van der Veldt; see here: Python Roon

It will enable control of a Roon system from Indigo.

For more info on Roon, see here: Roon

If anyone who uses Roon is interested in alpha testing the plugin when it is available, just post your interest on this thread. :)

Re: Roon Controller

Thanks Jon.

So, how do we use this then? Not seeing any config or new devices?

Am I being a bit thick?

(Oh, and 'About' goes to TRV controller, obviously not a priority, but so you know.)

Sam.

You should get a config dialog from the plugin menu.
If it isn't appearing, try downloading the zip file again and re-installing - maybe it didn't install correctly?

Re: Roon Controller

I should probably be posting on the beta feedback thread.

I'm getting the following error on start up:

Code: Select all
   Roon Error                      Error in plugin execution InitializeMain:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "plugin.py", line 17, in <module>
ImportError: No module named PIL

Re: Roon Controller

Missing bit of documentation. :oops:

You need to open a terminal session and do a pip install of Pillow i.e.:
Code: Select all
pip install Pillow
This is needed for processing the album and artist images. :)
