Hi
This is a request for more UDP/OSC functions in Cuety LPU-2. To be included in the API for an upcoming firmware update.

As I have just purchased an LPU-2 for our Church I reached out to a programmer to make a module for Cuety LPU-2 to be controlled by the Companion software for Elgato Streamdecks.

Bitfocus Companion enables the Streamdeck to be a professional shotbox surface for an increasing amount of different presentation switchers, video playback software and broadcast equipment.

While working with the unit we discovered a few things we would like to include in the interface, and for this, we have a few suggestions to the API:

Playback Label: pb01/label=[LABEL]

Playback Direction: pb01/direction=[fwd,rev] (or something similar)

Playback Button State: pb01/button=[state] (to be able to colour the buttons like the ipad interface - ie - Empty / GO / Active / Off)

Playback Total Cues: pb01/cuetotal=[TOTAL] (or something similar, so we can know there are 5 cues, and display "on cue 2 of 5" for example?)

Playback Active Cue: (it's actually listed in the API but doesn't seem to actually be sent unless you send a pbxx/all/cue and then look for your playback index. And this is only sent on request, so we are currently having to poll the device every x seconds for it)

The code for the cuety-module is found here:
https://github.com/bitfocus/companion-module-visualproductions-cuety

The Cuety module is currently available in the beta-section of Companion.

Best regards
