Maybe iRule support can work some magic with the Oppo guys to get this going.

Jim,

Any reason you can't use RS232 ?

Cheers,

Mark,

No idea on the lost connection ... sorry !

What feedbacks are you using ? I've got track number plus I've used the Verbose Mode command to get the elapsed track time counter, but I can't seem to get Audio Mode.

Cheers,

I have a Denon 1908 and had to learn the return code via itach ip2ir and ilearn software, add this as a pronto hex code on the denon device and see if it works for you:

OK, so you copied an iPhone standard resolution handset to the iPhone 5 handset. That will result in "tiny button" syndrome.

If your handset is highly customized (from the iRule default handsets), then you'll probably have to import the Retina buttons and drag/drop replace your mini buttons with the Retina buttons. It's a little monotonous, but shouldn't take you more than an hour or so to do even a fairly complex remote like yours.

If your handset isn't too customized, you can use the iRule template handset (File > New Handset) for iPhone 5 in your desired theme (with template devices) and then use Device Replacement to replace the template devices with your devices, then make changes from there to match your existing handset.

Depending on how complex your remote is, either could be viable options to get a new iPhone 5 handset going. The cool thing is, that if you're like me, you'll fool around with it for a week or two, so you can switch back and forth between the old handset for using the theater and the new handset for testing while you iron out the bugs.

Not sure about this one. If you're connected to the gateway and communication is successful (green gateway icon in lower-right, and green arrows on lower-left when you push buttons), then it sounds like a serial issue. Just because it's easy, there are a couple of things you could try. Delete and re-add the gateway, and see if that has any effect. Try disconnecting the feedback temporarily and see if that has any effect. You could also try power-cycling and then resetting the GC-100 or iTach. That's the easy stuff. The harder stuff is swapping serial cables and trying a different gateway or router to find the issue. Troubleshooting all this stuff can be fun, can't it?

Peter,
Its not that I can't use RS232, although it would mean purchasing a new iTach to do that.

I do have it working now using IR with my iTach IP2IR, but I always prefer to use IP whenever possible. IP wasn't possible before, so I was happy to use IR. I have the BDP-93 hooked up to my network over Cat 5 already, so now that IP is possible, I'd prefer to be able to switch to IP and remove the IR connection from my rack and maybe get feedback someday as well.

ecrabb,
Any chance you could take the lead in trying to help figure out the Oppo IP/port connection issues with iRule we've been banging our heads against the past few days?

It may be that your iPhone 4 build was just a standard iPhone build, not one made for that particular phone. If so, you may not have used the Retina Display graphics (buttons and backgrounds), so the buttons look half as big as they should. Retina Displays have twice the number of pixels per inch, or four times the number of pixels overall. Trade in your buttons for Retina Display buttons and your backgrounds for retina Display backgrounds, and you'll likely see what you want.
post #7509 of 9755
I think the iphone 4 has retina too, but the #of pixels is different since the iphone 5 is bigger......

Hi, Jim -

- The IP protocol is not the same as the RS-232, so stop the banging. wink.gif
- iRule has prelim protocol docs, and Oppo IP control will be integrated
- Test hardware on the way

In short, this is in motion.

Cheers,
SC
post #7511 of 9755
I thought I read that Roomie had the Oppo incorporated into their software. I have no idea if competition in the marketplace has an effect in this instance . . .

Willie

Posted this at almost the exact moment SC posted his response above. Awesome news. I look forward to retiring one more IR piece.

I got the GC-100-12 and am about ready to pull the trigger and jump in with you guys with the pro license. For the time being I am going to run the theater on my iphone and/or laptop but eventually I want an ipad for the ultimate setup. For those of you using an iphone 4 or similar screen size device:
  • how would you rate the functionality of irule for a dedicated home theater setup?
  • How many "buttons" can you fit on one page?
  • How many pages do you have to incorperate to have total control over an activity like "Watch Blu-Ray" or "Watch DirecTV"?
  • Can some of you possibly share some screen shots of your remotes? The irule site is kinda scarce on pics of the iphone interface..

I use Kindle Fire running a custom ROM now in the theater but have a fully functional ipod layout that is used from time to time and in the rest of the house.

I use Steve Goff's steampunk templates




I use 3 pages for my DTV control:








I find them easy to use. I am not a channel surfer, pretty much live sports and recorded shows for me. I know some people miss the tactile buttons of a normal remote. I do sometimes, but the convenience of 1 remote that I can fully customize on my own is worth the trade off. I know my wife never would have used the PS3 for Netflix without iRule.

I don't have an easily accessible screen shot of my Hands Free panel for ipod, it looks similar to my Kindle version. I use this almost exclusively when watching recorded content. No need to look at the remote, swiping left activates the FF command 3 times for a quick skip of commercials and a tap on the screen hits play when ready.

post #7519 of 9755
Hi Nick,

Here are some examples of my setup on iPhone/iPod - these are not retina....








I made the activity buttons nice and big for the small screen. My directv page is about as many buttons as I like to fit on a page otherwise hitting the wrong button becomes a real possibility. I use two drawers for the directv colours and number pad as you can see above (really love drawers!!).

On the Blu-ray page I can set my volume discretely to about -15dB, about as loud as my wife can handle in the media room.

Thank you SS and SQM,

Those interfaces look awesome! I'm In. Off to get a license now.

I'm sure I'll be back with questions soon.

In so many ways iRule looks like it is the web-based incarnation of NetRemote 2, which was published by Promixis to work with Girder. Do the developers of this software have their origins with Promixis?

Yes, the iPhone 4 has a retina display, but I think you can use the standard build and it will just scale, like any other app.

That is an awesome idea!

I started today with the pro license. Its a lot to digest all at once.

Is there any reason not to use retina designs in the iphone 4? I saw retina and non retina designs so i was using the retina versions.

If you use non retina buttons on a retina screen, the buttons will be smaller.

Is it possible to control tellstick duo from irule?
post #7529 of 9755
Yes, if you use EventGhost with the TellstickDuo plugin and the Broadcaster plugin you can. Works great!

For those who are using those gc10012s off ebay, how did you find out its ip address? I cannot see the device when i type in the default address in my browser. I shorted DB9 pins 2-7 and plugged in, and device still wont come up in browser. I tried a crossover cable and straight into my network.

Any ideas?
