Thanks!

I just make those for you. Search "thomas custom". There seems to be a few variations of the Logo, so I just randomly pick one.
It is actually pretty easy to DIY. Here are the steps:

1) Download GIMP (free).
2) Google xxx icon png file (PNG makes transparent background, the easiest to work with. JPG will be more difficult as you need to take out the background and make it transparent).
3) Save the Source button file by viewing it in the search database, and CTRL-CLICK and pull it out to your desktop or folder.
4) Open up the Source button.
5) Open up the logo png file.
6) Under Image, scale the logo png to fit into the source button (the header should tell you the size of the source button, so you want to scale it to fit within it).
7) once done scaling, do a CTRL-C (copy) on the logo window.
8) Move to the source button screen, do a CTRL-V (paste).
9) Move it around if you don't like the default position. Usually, they should be in the middle.
10) Export it to a PNG file.
11) Import it into irule by "add image".

Enjoy.

Thanks so much. The tutorial is great and very helpful too! You have "taught a man to fish."

Can someone tell me what the JSON command line for 'Go to Music Screen' is


jsonrpc?{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"Input.Home","id":1} works for taking me to the home screen, but
jsonrpc?{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"Input.Music","id":1} does not work for taking me to the Music Screen. I cant figure this JSON stuff out, it's confusing as hell

By the way, I'm using iRule to control it

One thing to check: Check your router settings. Mine was set to start IP addresses at 100 and the default GC IP is .70 so I'm not sure if it would even see the unit if it were under the starting IP address. I set mine to start at 50 so 70 fell inside the range.

As soon as I received mine from the seller, I sent mine back to Global Cache for a firmware update, and received it yesterday. It cost me $35 + shipping to get it to them, and they even sent it back to me in an original shipping carton, and double-boxed; nice touch! I haven't tried to connect to it yet, but the software now has the broadcast ability, and the unit is "discoverable" on the network, as I understand it.

I just wanted to report my experience with having the unit updated by Global Cache.

A question: Is this working for you on IOS or Android or both?
My previous attempt at this using Android on a rommed Kindle Fire failed with both the Kindle and the DTV box needing to be rebooted. I only have an android tablet at this time and I don't see the value of doing this for my ipod handsets, just not enough real estate to make it worth the time.
The idea to use a beefier box for the feedback is a very good one. I was sending the requests/getting feedbacks from my main hr23-700 box that I was using for viewing. I have a newer box that is seldom in use when other boxes are being used, so will give that a try.

I'm doing it on iOS, it actually is quite usable on an iPhone 5 at least, I think to do it on an iPhone 4 sized screen you might have issues. I have 3 columns and 5 rows on my iPhone 5 for sunday ticket but only do 2 columns x 4 rows for favorite stations, I just use more panels. I really wanted sunday ticket on one. It would be ideal on an iPad but does work great on an iPhone 5 at least for me.

I've tried speeding up faster than .2 second delays for the DTV box and it does handle it but not reliably.

I see how it works now and it is simple to modify the ones you have created to make others work. For example I just used your local channel feedback but changed the callsigns to match my Columbus, OH stations of WCMH, WSYX, WBNS, WTTE and created one for PBS of WOSU.
This works nicely on my Kindle Fire. I've set the delay between each command at 2 seconds in the entrance and the entrance to repeat every 30 seconds. Did you create multiple entrances or queue the channel query commands in one entrance as I have done?
I have a favorites channel page with 6 channels and it works nicely. I am going to try a second page with a total of 12 channels and see if it still works on both the DTV box and the Fire without issue.
What we need is for iRule to just create a channel specific feedback/device for all channels and add it to the builder. Then include the details that I put above about how to modify for your specific local channels.
Again, thanks for getting us over the last hurdle on this. I've said before that for a full touchscreen remote that a favorites list with show titles is the biggest missing piece. Not having to look at the TV to see what is on will be great and used nearly daily. It will be easy to implement event specific pages from here too: March Madness, the 4 major tennis tournaments, UEFA Champions League, obviously Sunday Ticket is already done by you.

I'm using one entrance for Sunday ticket and one for favorite channels right now, I am considering switching to using an entrance for each page of favorites though to speed things up. I'm never refreshing favorites because they query pretty fast when going to the panel so I just flip between the and they refresh frequently enough with that.

I'm working to build out the rest of the channels in my DTV device and feedback sets. I also may have a better way to deal with getting some data without having to look things up (channel callsign) before I create the feedbacks. That will be my project tomorrow. Tonight I have to go watch Green Bay teach Minnesota how to play football smile.gif

Great followup Seldomseen

Seldom and your work really got me going on this, I started building things out the way you had and was losing my mind quickly with all those devices AND gateways! It just got too annoying so I dug in a bit smile.gif

Honestly one of the cool things about iRule is leveraging each others work into new things.

Everyone with an iOS or Android device should download Fing, an app that surveys your network and tells you the IP and MAC address of all devices on the network. It makes it very easy to set up your gateways and find your iTach devices.

For one thing I don't think the music command mentioned is even a valid command.. The best command list I've seen for XBMC (Frodo) is:
Code:

Show                OSD jsonrpc?{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"Input.ShowOSD","id":1}


I use Plex vs. XBMC so I can't help much but step 1 should be finding a complete command set just like you'd do for any device... Hopefully that helps.

I'm in exactly the same situation. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I contacted seller and returned the one that would not connect or reset. I ended up sending him money for another to ship with my exchange and I'm hoping that the next two won't have the same issues.

Seller exchanged my Gc-100-12 for a working one. while I had to pay for shipping I went ahead and ordered another for the living room....

Both reset to factory defaults first time and showed up at IP ...... 70.

One is hanging out of my rack right now in the theater and seems to work well. One thing that i noticed is the IR emitter voltage is much lower on the GC unit than the harmony stuff. The emitter has to be right up on the IR window of the light control and with the harmony it would work from 3' away.....ithchd

I switched the channel info query to a higher performance box and it works well at solving the lagging and glitchy movements. I also increased the repeat of that entrance to 60s since it seemed like it was ALWAYS running.

The GC-100-06 is 3.2-06, the GC-100-12 and GC-100-18 are both 3.2-12

I'm running much older firmware. Shouldn't be an issue for most.

If you want power-on and full capability, then you need Bluetooth. The Bluetooth adapters are more expensive; the USB adapters are cheaper, but offer less functionality.

I chose the Logitech Harmony adapter several years ago because it was much cheaper than the alternatives at $50 on Amazon, and I hate spending more than I need to. Some of the other more expensive alternatives like the Schmartz and IR2BTci are much more capable in terms of updatability, built-in macros, and a couple of other things, but if all you want to do is turn on- and off your PS3 and control BD playback, then the Logitech adapter is just fine.

One potential down-side to the Bluetooth remotes is that the PS3 only allows one paired BD remote, so you won't be able to use your Sony BD remote once you pair the adapter. Probably not an issue, since the point is using iRule, but I like to tell people anyway since that was a surprise when I found out myself.

Here's a nice article on Remote Central that compares the adapters:

Exactly what I was looking for, thanks for the info! I think I'll hold off on this until we get further along with the home theater to see if we feel like we need the extra control. The only reason to get one would be for on/off control.

Insteon questions

I am going to be using Insteon dimmers for my lights and I am not sure which interface to use to get iRule to control the lights and scenes. It looks like there are 4 options. I don't need timers or email alerts, just need some simple scenes for my theater / game room.

ISY 99i with plm ( by far the most expensive and overkill for the 3 lights I want to control)
Smartlinc controller (not sure if this can store different scenes with different ramp rates, level, etc.)
Insteon hub (not sure if there is iRule support for this yet)
Plm with Houselinc (Houselinc to get everything setup, but does the computer need to be up and running to remember everything?)

Do I even need all the scenes and ramp rates set up and stored within the insteon network, or does iRule just need a connection with the insteon network and all the scenes and ramp rates can be stored within iRule?

Thanks

Thanks TheYoshi, I already have those commands. I know there has to be a way to do what I am trying to do. Going directly do the Home, Music, Movies, TV Shows, and Pictures is avaoilable in the JSON Command structure. I just don't know how to put the command in the right format. I wish someone with JSON know how could write a tutorial to explain how it is supposed to work.

Thought I would give you all a peek at the keyboard I use in a drawer on my android phone. It works awesome. I built a custom device for eventghost commands then wrote the key emulations in event ghost. Works great for XBMC and MCE. Rotated the keys in Photoshop so they would work on a vertical layout turned sideways.

Remember that for the Logitech harmony controller, there is no separate power-off command (power on though is simply START or PS). The power off in Logitech is implemented using a macro (PS,x,x) that involve repeating PS and delay within the macro. Might not be a big deal if you do separate button, but t basicAlly mean you cannot do a single power toggle button as PS is used in both on and off command.

Nope they are individual icons. Getting the blank buttons to line up is a pain. It works awesome. I'm super happy with it. Makes searching in xmbc and mce super easy. They are 90 by 90 pixels each.

Going directly do the Home, Music, Movies, TV Shows, and Pictures is avaoilable in the JSON Command structure. I just don't know how to put the command in the right format. I wish someone with JSON know how could write a tutorial to explain how it is supposed to work.

Can you point me at the documentation you are seeing which confirms this? If so I can likely help.

6.7.3 GUI.Window

Take a look at that line item at this URL http://wiki.xbmc.org/index.php?title=JSON-RPC_API/v5#GUI.Window

Click on [show] and it will give you all of the available command targets

I simply want someone to tell me the way that the command line should look to make iRule tell XBMC to go to Music for instance.



jsonrpc?{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"Input.down","id":1}

That is a command line to do exactly what it says, Down Arrow

I've tried several different command lines and nothing works


I've tried jsonrpc?{"jsonrpc":"2.0","method":"GUI.ActivateWindow","params":{"playerid":1,"GUI.Window":"Music"},"id":1}

That didn't work frown.gif

I'm not sure how the command line should look

I would like it if someone could explain each section of the command line to me. None of it makes any sense to me at this point.

Are you using emitters that also have a visible LED? If so, you should find that IR-only emitters have much better range (the visible LED introduces an additional voltage drop, which has more effect when the voltage is lower to start with).

For those looking at buying or upgrading GC-100s (or iTachs for that matter), don't forget that for $5 each you can double each ir output from those devices by using one of these:



Might be a bit more economical than going to the next unit up if you need more outputs. I use them in my system without any issues.

I've been looking all over the net for a way to control a Panasonic GT30 TV over IP. They won't give us the codes, but they have a free app that allows such control. Isn't there a way to figure out what is being sent out from the app, either sniffing the network or investigating the codes in the app?
