Quick update. I was able to create a custom device file for the Datasat. Did not need many commands as I really only use vol up/down/mute and the status of those items.
This program while different from IRule is actually nice. Key concept is to program "Tasks" or Activities. For instance, I walk in to HT and want to watch KScape. I setup an Activity that says "Play KScape". It contains a series of actions each with adjustable delays. Power on Sony, Lumagen, Datasat, KScape unit. Switch Lumagen to Input 1 etc. I have one of these for each source I watch (Oppo, DirecTV, Roku, PS4...)
When you select one of the above it displays the remote for the device, i.e. the KScape unit along with vol +/-.
Also, in the "Activity List" you can place an Activity that is actually a remote. I.e. I can add an Activity for the Lumagen, since I am in that menu ALOT... Now while watching KScape I can select the Lumagen Remote activity and have the full remote for the Lumagen at my fingertips.
I have not figured out what I would need the HUB for. I can backup to Dropbox and then restore the file to another IPad to sync my changes around. This is very nice!!!
Overall this has been a pleasure to setup, it works, I do not have the option to design my "Steampunk" remotes but honestly it is not needed. Most anyone who uses my HT when I'm not there needs "1 Touch Control" i.e. I want to watch a BluRay on the Oppo, press the button and insert the disk and the Oppo remote / volume control is there.
So far I give it 5 stars
