I use the remote that comes with the curtain call system.
I feed the ir codes into the computer using the usb-virt. A repeater from the ir distribution is transmited from the computer through the media software
xlobby.The front end software sets the codes to buttons to control the curtain rod.

I guess you have the single rod? I have the dual but I will give your codes a shot. I have one of my two working but the second is giving me fits.

Thanks,

Reviving an old thread, but I couldn't find anything more recent. I'm looking for motorized curtain tracks with programmable preset stops, preferably something with black hardware. Does anyone have more recent suggestions for this? Thanks.

They seem to have an American branch. I'll give them a call, thanks. Expensive?

If you want a track thats acurate, quiet and reliable you wont find a cheap one.

How much should I expect to pay for something decent?

Give them a call and ask them what it will cost for the length you need and what add ons you might need to get all you want. 2 stops are cheaper than 3, you need to know exactly all you want to do before you call them.

Josh Z, let me know the details on Goelst, you can PM the cost information as we are not supposed to post quotes on threads. I am interested in doing something similar for my still in planning stage home theater.

The local dealer was supposed to email me a "proposal" with a price quote the other day, but I haven't gotten it yet.
