Auto Muting

Recommended Posts

I'd like to leave HS running, but since my cabinet is in the living room, the random sounds can get annoying. I usually turn down the volume manually, or turn it off.

It would be nice if HS had an option to auto-mute the system after some period of time. For example, after 5 minutes without user input, it lowers the volume or mutes it.

That way, my lazy self doesn't need to walk over to the thing to shut it up.

~ or maybe someone can suggest another way to achieve that?

Sorry to jump on an old post.

Been playing with the excellent hyperspin for a few weeks now.i look forward seeing this addition in 2.0

before i found this post i was trying to use some software here:

for the same functionality. results are ok but it would be excellent to expand on this idea...

I would like to still be able to leave a single mame rom running and auto mute after a few mins inaction (until button press).

its perfect

the only problem i have with this is, if you line up some songs in jukebox.

is it possible to exclude certain programs like that?

I believe djvj designed a program to lower volume after a specified period of time. I think it can also fade it in as well. Perhaps he can expand upon this.

Noticing OP is from 2010 - does anybody have an update on how to accomplish this? I'd like to leave my cab on in my living room but not have constant sounds. having it mute after an idle period would be great.

similarly being able to have a screensaver (either play videos, show images, or just have the monitor turn off) after an idle period would also be welcome (with wake on joystick/buttonpress obviously!)

wow that works like a charm! now to just find a way to get my monitor to turn off or at least switch to something not visually distracting (black or dimmed screen, or video of my choice perhaps ...after a set time.)

Thanks rdhanded2.
