I’m trying to implement something that can query rv during startup and loading, from a separate process, to see how far along the loading process is (ie. Loading 56 of 340). I’m using the rvNetwork.py example module to connect to rv, and that seems to connect quickly at the start of launching. But when I then call either rvc.sendEventAndReturn or rvc.remoteEvalAndReturn, it appears that rv blocks them until everything is done loading (which takes 40-50 secs in my testing case), and then it starts to respond fine to the messages after it’s finished loading media. But of course it’s too late to be useful if it can’t respond during loading.
I’ve tried with progressiveSourceLoading both on and off, and it doesn’t seem to act differently in that regard.
I don’t have a ton of socket communication experience, so I’m hoping I’m just missing something really obvious. Has anyone tried anything similar? Any ideas, or is that the expected behavior?
