Sending alerts to DLNA speaker?

How do I send alerts to dlna-speaker wtih the “Plugin-Forwarding” option in VeraAlerts?
I have created several DLNA speakers with the “DLNA Media Controller” plugin and can use mp3, tts, etc.

What data should I use in VeraAlerts (I have tried with this)?

ForwardedPluginDeviceID = ??
ServiceID = urn:dlna-org:serviceId:DLNAMediaController1
Action = SendAlert
DefaultArgs = Msg="{Message}"

Can I ask how did you set up TTS? Also which DLNA speaker do you have?

I followed instructions on http://code.mios.com/trac/mios_dlna-cntroller , but couldn’t get TTS to work for my GGMM DLNA speaker.

If you show me an example of how you send text in LUA I will tell you how to set it up with Vera Alert plugin forwarding.

I’m trying to test a manual scene with the following LUA action…

luup.call_action(“urn:dlna-org:serviceId:DLNAMediaController1”, “Say”,
{Text=“The sun shines outside”, Language=“en”, Volume=16, Engine=“MARY”},
61)

I have set up a local MaryTTS server.

Does the LUA work ?
I can’t help with that.
If it does work and you need help linking it with Vera Alerts via Plugin forwarding … I can help with that.

I didn’t get any answer for this question?
The DLNA speaker is a Sony SRSZR5.
TTS is working from the TTS textbox.
What I want to do is to have the speaker telling me what sensors has tripped.

Richard - is this out of your domain?

No one answered my last question …

Working LUA code that sends the text …
There was a response with code … but it did not indicate if it was a suggestion or that it was verified to work!

No LUA, but does this help?
I am using the DLNA plugin and have a DLNA-speaker that I use for TTS.

Plugin Forwarding Profile parameters:

ForwaredPluginDeviceID 941
ServiceID urn:dlna-org:serviceId:DLNAMediaController1
Action Say
DefaultArgs Language=“sv”, Volume=25, Text="{Message}"

I can’t verify the ServiceID
Since you did not verify the LUA is working, I can only assume the ServiceID is correct.

Thank you Richard!
I can confirm that it is working!
Now I need to find out to set the speed on the TTS, in Swedish, the speaking is to fast :slight_smile:
