and the reverse is true as well.. if you use retina buttons on a non-retina screen, it will be bigger.

Cheers,

It will be great if it got feedback integrated. Can't wait!

I use an iPhone app called "Fing" it's basically just a network scanner. Great for finding devices on your network and it's free. You can port scan with it as well.

Barring that most decent home routers will give you a DHCP table somewhere that let's you see all the connected clients

Hi Yoshi,

it does not show up on the scan or in the router.

I'm pretty sure this unit is running old firmware which cannot use beacon or ihelp but I'll give it a shot.


Either I'm overlooking something simple or this thing is a dud.

If it doesn't use DHCP and it defaults to an IP address on a different subnet from the one you're using, you won't see it. The GC-100 static IP default is 192.168.1.70, and if your network is not using 192.168.x.x (e.g. it might be using 10.0.x.x) you'll have to connect it directly to a PC (not your router) with a crossover cable. Then you'll have to temporarily put the PC on the same subnet as the GC-100 so you can connect to it and change the GC-100 to a static IP that's compatible with your network.

Hi Krik,

thanks for for the advice and PM.


After I connect the crossover cable how to I setup the subnet to connect to the GC?

HTPC Feedback:

I'm trying to figure out how to get feedbacks from MCE Controller (if it's even possible)

My goal is to have the ability to look at my iRule device and know if the computer in another room is on/off.

Is this possible? If so, can someone help me out

On your PC you have to change network settings to use a static IP of 192.168.1.x (assuming your GC-100 is at 192.168.1.70) and a subnet mask of 255.255.255.0 . You can Google how to do that, depending on which OS you're running. Under Windows, you can then type IPCONFIG in a CMD window to verify the IP you're using. Then connect the GC-100 directly to the PC via a crossover cable and see if you can access the setup page in a browser at 192.168.1.70. If not, it may not be working.

Whoah - sorry guys, got way behind on replies, here.

The Oppo would be a standard device w/feedback like other BD players. You'll just pick IR, RS-232, or IP.

Where modules are particularly advantageous are either with complex non-standardizable protocols (i.e. with device addresses in control protocol and feedback) as in lighting controllers, or where feedback is beyond simple textual or numeric feedback, (i.e. cover art from AVR or media player).

Be sure you use the Quick-Start guide to get started, then the tutorials on the support site. Much better than trying to muddle your way through by winging it.

Yes, use the Retina handsets and Retina buttons.

Yes - not just smaller, but exactly half-size. Retina displays are double the resolution of their standard-pixel-density counterparts, so if you put "x1" or standard resolution buttons on a Retina display, they will be half-size, aka tiny. The exception to this is syncing a standard resolution handset on a Retina iPhone/iPod touch. In that case, iRule does it, but simply doubles the size of the handset and buttons, and displays them at half-resolution to do so, so just like running an application that hasn't been updated for Retina, it just doesn't look as sharp as a Retina. I was using my iPhone 4 that way for months because I was too lazy to re-do my handset design. Depending on how old you are, you may not even really notice. wink.gif

Thanks, then I will buy a duo as soon as I can.

It will be fun to start creating my remotes.

Hi Krik,

Yes all of this above is what i was doing, it looks like mine is a dud. Im gonna contact the seller traveler or something and see if hell switch it out since he has so many of them.

Thats what you get sometimes frown.gif


I was able to control my Directv over IP though and its pretty cool just not $100 dollars worth!
post #7544 of 9754
I use the Fing app on my iOS devices to find out the ip addresses of every device on the network. That includes my ip2ir and my Inegra preamp. It is a very valuable free app.

No one has any information about this?
post #7546 of 9754
John mce controller is one way only and therefore does not provide feedback. You will probably need to learn event ghost to do that. However I offer you a simpler solution. Just set your computer to sleep after 30 min and then use irule to wake it with a magic packet when you need to use it. You won't be able to have a feedback to see that it is off but can reasonably expect sleep mode to work as it should.
post #7547 of 9754
I have implemented feedback of sorts from my HTPC. I use EventGhost rather than the MCE Controller to control my HTPC (and the rest of my house) from iRule. Using the EG Dynamic Webserver, I publish various information about the system state on a webpage. Using the iRule url-widget, I can push feedback from the HTPC to iRule. Works really well. Post again if you want more details.
post #7548 of 9754
Yes, I would like more details....

I'm also wondering if anyone can help me out with this so called magic packet. I have an Acer Aspire Revo 3700, and I am not sure it will allow for wake on lan.

From a forum discussion I found via google you have to enable wake on LAN in the bios under power management:
"Enable : Power on by PCIE devices

Then set you app or program to MAC and IP address!! i now works!! after ages of trying!"

You may also have to enable it in device manager. You can find the MAC address via the command prompt or a phone app like Fing that maps your network.
post #7550 of 9754
In addition to wake on LAN being enabled in the bios you need to go into the device manager under windows and click on the properties of your network adapter. Under the settings you need to make sure wol is enabled under advanced you need to check the box wake on magic packet only otherwise any network traffic will wake it.

I reverse engineered the IP commands for the Oppo and also got it working tonight. I've been looking around to see if anyone else managed to do it.

It goes something like this:

Send ""NOTIFY OREMOTE LOGIN" as a UDP broadcast to host 255.255.255.255 and port 7624. <- note I found that line quite amusing. If anyone knows who I am, you might see why.

The Oppo will respond back with this message:
"BDP-93_BDP-93 REPORT ADDRESS TO OREMOTE: 192.168.1.4:19999"

(obviously the model number, IP and port may change)

You need to create a SOAP Message and send it via UDP to the specified IP address and port. No idea what request tag is supposed to be, but the Oppo app generates a unique key for each message. I just use mine as it is below and it works.
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/oremote/oppo/">
    <body>
    <request>
    <name>signin</name>
    <uid>68967B4D192B</uid>
    <requesttag>deadbeef</requesttag>
    <password>oppo80031722</password>
    <signintype>0</signintype>
    </request>
    </body>
    </s:Envelope>

The Oppo responds with a UDP message:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/oppo/oremote/">
 <body>
  <response>
   <name>signin</name>
   <uid>68967B4D192B</uid>
   <requesttag>deadbeef</requesttag>
   <errorcode>0</errorcode>
  </response>
 </body>
</s:Envelope>

Now you can send commands as a SOAP message to that IP and port as UDP commands:
Code:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<s:Envelope xmlns:s="http://schemas.xmlsoap.org/soap/oremote/oppo/">
    <body>
    <request>
    <name>command</name>
    <uid>68967B4D192B</uid>
    <requesttag>deadbeef</requesttag>
    <content>EJT</content>
    <signintype>0</signintype>
    </request>
    </body>
</s:Envelope>

I don't get any responses for anything but the connect request. If anyone has the IP specification, I'd love to have a copy.


That's about it.
post #7552 of 9754
Not sure why they would want something that complicated. Hopefully by the time they document the protocol for the BDP-103 they will have something much simpler (just open a specific (fixed) TCP port at the known IP address and send commands, and support multiple simultaneous connections).
post #7553 of 9754
Hey guys,
First post here with 2 questions i can't figure out. Just started using iRule..

Where can we setup the communication speed and other specs when using a RS-232 control ? Didn't find it yet.
Also to add gateways, can we do it from the builder or only through iPad ? I see the icon on iPad but nothing on my PC.

Thanks a lot.
post #7554 of 9754
Yes, you add gateways from your iPad, not the Builder. But once the gateways are set up you can save everything for easy restore if you need to (do Backup Gateways from the Sync page).

RS-232 settings are controlled by the gateway itself. So, for example, if you have a Global Cache iTach or GC-100 you go to its setup page with your web browser (enter the IP address of the gateway in the browser).
post #7555 of 9754
Thanks ;-)

How do I send web commands to my dreambox from iRule?
I have tried to add a button with an URL but this open up my safari ever time I press the button.

I have read about SOAP where can I choose this in irule builder?

Edit: I have now found the tutorial for this. Http command is the correct name

Hey guys!

Has anyone looked into the Wii U and the possibilities of controlling it using either IR or IP? I've been looking around for info on this but it seems to be scarce.

I know the Wii Gamepad has an IR emitter but the main use for that is to control your TV set. Does the Wii U even have an IR receiver?

Thanks!

I just made a handset for an old iPad I picked up. I've been playing with IP control of my Directv receivers until my gc-100s get here. Does anyone know why my drawers might not be working? it's weird like they are cut off and a part of the main pages? I can see the edge of the drawer but it's not functional.

Also can someone tell me how to get feedback to work on Directv?
