I have gone to the Digital Projection website and they have very clear information on the commands. Now, I am not so good at this. They say the key command for power on is pow.on [CR] and the code transmitted is 0x01. I just put the pow.on [CR] for the data code....is this right. The more I talk I think the more you see how I need a little help. I think if i got one set up I could get the rest of them. thanks for any help.

CR is carriage return and you need to enter it as \\x0d instead of CR

Hi,

I'm looking for the commands for page up / page down for Directv http. Does anyone know the string I need?

Thanks,
John

It's channel up and down that functions as page up/down depending on the screen you are in, same as the original remote.

Ah, thanks. On my harmony it is a different button. Your fix is easier than I thought it would be!

I should receive this monoprice 4x2 HDMI matrix switch (#5312) in a few days. I want to control it through RS-232. I was wondering if anybody had created the libraries for control and feedback yet and would be willing to share them with the class. I already looked through the iRule builder library, but came up empty.

TIA!

The commands are already in the database. I couldn't find them either when doing all sorts of searches, but irule support helped me. The device needed is the monoprice 4x4 HDMI RS232 device. It works fine for the 4x2 version.

Anyone using iRule with LAN control of a Marantz AV7005 Pre-pro? I didn't see it listed in the devices.

Does anyone have a standard ipod source button (default non-retina) for Dune player?

I tried using GIMP to create one, but it is beyond me. I found a couple of imagees:





Not sure if those would help at all. They didn't help me

My Dune player shipped today and I am building some pages for control and wanted to keep a consistant look if I could. The blank source button with a label overlay would do but lacks a little something. Any help is appreciated (a brief detail of how it's done would be even better).

If you want I can make you a black button tonight with PS when I get home from MNF. What size button?

The standard ipod source button size, I believe it is 139x85. I couldn't figure out how to edit and resize the dune image and overlay it on the standard button.

Thanks!

Thanks!

Neil, sorry to hear you are still in one-way mode. Some random questions:

1. Did you ever confirm with DTV whether your box was 2-way-able? As I recall there was some question whether your non dvr would do 2way.

2. Did you set up remote access in the DTV setup menu?

No prob, I
ll get on it later tonight but a fair warning that the results may be impacted by whether the Giants win or not...actually, now that I think of it the results will be impacted either way (celebrating the win or drowning my sorrow with beer)

PS. do you want the on and off version or the one without the on/off?

Thanks much, Seldom, I'll give them a try. I believe I saw those. However, only on the command side. You would not happen to have the feedback file as well, would you?

I don't. I do not currently implement any feed back in my system. From the monoprice website they have the commands for feedback. Someone more savvy here might be able to puzzle them together from this:

If I am not mistaken the SR7005 Network Commands should work. They work with my SR6006,

Thanks! - I think I can figure this out.
(I had found this pdf already. I thought I ask here first if anyone had made a library already, so I do not have to start from scratch. With the existing 4x4 library I now have at least a good start - thanks again!)

Thanks for this Jim. I had tried this approach using just "pandora://" as the URL and couldn't get it to work. Adding the "http://" as you suggested did the trick. However, it seems a bit inconsistent...it works once and then seems to fail on subsequent attempts. It also doesn't seem to work on the iPod player which can be accessed fine from Safari using "music://" but did not work when I used "music://" OR "music://http://" as the URL in iRule.

My primary purpose for using iRule is to control an amp and an Aton digital speaker controller for a whole house audio system. The source will be one of our iPhones or iPads streamed via an Airport Express. If I can integrate the "source" apps into iRule it would improve the WAF, but if it's not 100% stable, I'm better off just having the family make those apps quickly accessible from the home screen of the devices. Until, of course, iRule natively supports launching an app from within...

I'll keep tinkering to see if I can find any consistency in the error and will report back... maybe I have something else set wrong.

Not sure about your inconsistencies, mine is spot on every time. Regarding WAF, I haven't found a perfect way to have control over my system and integrate that with launched idevice apps. Lots of double clicking the home button to move back and forth.

I am not sure this TV can be controlled via IP but I am attempting to get it set up. The device is attached via ethernet and can browse the internet via the Aquos software. I have the IP address set to 192.168.1.108, imported the IP Network codes into the builder and have tried a number of different gateway conditions to get it to attach. I tried as a network device and HTTP(example 192.168.1.108:8080) with different PORT's (not sure which Port number I should be using here). I bought this TV in the Fall of 2010 and the setup does not offer and option to turn on 'IP CONTROL' as I have read in other posts. Other reading I have done suggests this device should be able to be controlled via IP even though it is not specifically identified in the manual. There is an Internet activate option in the TV setup which is turned on. The Gateway shows up as RED on the IPAD so I think I am getting closer but just missing something. Does anyone have a clue as to what I am missing??? I was able to get my old Yamaha receiver controlled via RS-232 on my old AMX stuff back in the day so you would think I could get this going. I get this going and the AMX stuff goes in the garbage thanks to this great product.
post #5424 of 9744
Try port 23. Many things control on the standard telnet port. Red on the IPAD just means it can't open a session on the defined IP address and port.

I have my Elite 70X5FD (Sharp) controlled over IP, I'll check my settings when I get home and let you know (hopefully someone else can help you before then).

I found my notes, here's what I did for my 70X5FD:

1. In the builder, browse for user devices under TV and Sharp and import my device Elite Pro-70X5FD TV IP and RS232 Control
2. Go to your iPad, open irule, panels, gateways and delete whatever gateways you created for the tv, network and HTTP. Create a clean slate.
3. Create a new Network device with IPv4 address 192.168.1.108 and the port should be 10002. Save.
4. back to the builder, create a test page in your TV panel with an on and off button, drag the ON and OFF codes from the device you imported. SAVE
5. Back to your iPad, irule, sync, and sync to the latest builder.
6. Turn on your tv with your tv remote.
7. Open iRUle, go to your tv test page and try the off button.

If this works, you can create a TV control page with all the correct buttons/device codes. You may not be able to turn your tv on with irule, the 70X5FD requires a 1 time sequence of commands to to tell it to keep the ip connection open when you turn the tv off...not sure if your Sharp can do that.

Good luck!
Jim

Sorry, forgot that you need to go into your TV menu where you set the ip address and hopefully there is a place to set the port to 10002 (mine defaulted to it).
post #5427 of 9744
i got my sharp working on ipcontrol using standard default 10002. i didnt supply a password either. i then setup my gateway as network using the same default port 10002 in irule. I access it through mac terminal with no problem. set my power on to network as suggested by jim and all is grand and golden!!! irule now controls my tv as well so i am confident that jim's suggestions will work for you!!
post #5428 of 9744
Thanks guys I will give these suggestion a try. Based on Jim's notes I may have imported the wrong codes. I will
report back.

I been reading up on iRule the last couple of days and wanted some advice on what Global Cache hardware I needed.

I have TEN devices I want to control.

Master Bedroom TV
Living Room Left TV
Living Room Center TV
Living Room Right TV
AVR Master bedroom
AVR Living Room 2 TV
HTPC
3x5 Matrix Switcher
XBOX360
XBOX360

I see I can purchase dual IR emitters so will a single GLOBAL CACHE GC-100-12 along with TWO Single & 4 DUAL emitters be good enough? Does it matter that the 3 living room TV's are the same brand?? I searched this whole thread and looked at the guides over at the irule website but it wasn't clear enough.

Thanks
