I know this is going to be a very BROAD question, but I could really use some technical expertise on this topic:
When programming the Harmony 900 remote, I am quickly learning that I do not want to control this projector using IR. I would much rather go the RS-232 route. Here are the two problems I'm running into.
- I don't know anything about programming RS-232. What do I need?
- I would still like to use the Harmony 900 to send IR to somthing that converts the IR codes to RS-232 commands that the projector will understand.
So, for example, I would like to switch inputs on the projector without having to use IR to cycle through all of the inputs. I would like to push one button on the remote that sends an IR code to something
that receives the code and then switches the projector directly to that input.
A better example is this Lens Memory feature. I want to push one button on the Harmony, send IR code to something
that receives the IR code, converts it to the correct RS-232 command that changes the projector to that lens memory setting.
I know the projector's IR remote makes you push a sequence of buttons just to load a Lens Memory or switch inputs. I don't want to do that because IR is so hit or miss (trying to set up delays is so stupid) and the Harmony can't really do sequences for this sort of thing.
If you are an RS-232 expert and would like to take this to PM, just let me know.
