Always nice to be able to have more control...and I'm a fan of iRule!
Read bulldoggers post 1685 to have your questions answered about how the new codes came to be written and found.
I'm not entirely clear as to whether you just require the Casablanca's feedbacks or would like a few additional Casablanca device commands.
In case you are only looking for just what feedbacks are available,
From iRule builder page Click on Browse and click Feedback. When the search box opens in iRule, click on the "Community" Tab.
For Type, select "Receiver/Preamps" - For Manufacturer, Fill in "Theta Digital" - For Model, Fill in "Casablanca" - For Type, click RS-232 and hit search.
I just gave Bulldoggers Feedback 5 Stars and a one line review saying "it's the best anywhere on iRule" so it should stick out among the one or two others.
It's called "Theta Casablanca III BD2x- Tokenized" This is the one you definitely want to use.
If you are not already using iRule for controlling you're Casablanca you'll first need the Device Codes. Most of the ones you'll find are just copies of Bulldoggers and most have errors of one sort or another, so one of your safest bets is to choose Bulldoggers Device, which you search for in the same fashion as described above except you choose "Devices" After you click "Browse" and fill the rest in the same as above.
But here you'll find 3 Devices to choose from at the moment, so make sure you get either Bulldoggers "Theta Casablanca RS-232 Bull D" or my "Theta Casablanca RS-232 Bigbro"
Mine is also a copy of Bulldoggers but I added a few commands mostly from what would be the 2nd Balance page of the Casablanca IIIHD now but are found in other versions of the Casablanca as well, which you may or may not want to use, included in my version are additional codes such as:
Center Level Up/Down - 2 buttons required on your page
Subwoofer levels Up/Down - 2 buttons required on your page.
EQ Button, a command which cycles through the EQ Button from "Off-1-2-3-4-Off and the other "Off-4-3-2-1-Off" - 1 button required on your page
My version also gives you the option to use 1 or 2 buttons for Power On and Off
It also gives you a 2 button option to Mute On and Mute Off or a single button to Mute and have the Mute Released by hitting Vol. Up or Vol. Down
There is no additional Feedbacks available At the moment for the extra commands in my version of Casablanca III Devices. You'd need to see your CB-III display, or use your ears.
I also see that the 3rd Casablanca Device was made available by jstrossner here who shared his CB-III device code, but he'd have to let us know if it's a copy of another version or if he changed anything from Bulldoggers Device code like I did.

I just don't know if that's a good enough 'fit' with my Theta gear? I called and it's a grounded unit, with high current imputs for amps....just wondering if anyone knows about that piece? Thanks, Joe
I am not up to snuff on Power Conditioners with external control other then the ones with AC or 12v DC triggers.Edited by bigbrother52 - 11/27/13 at 2:11pm
