Most of the denon RS232 stuff doesn't change from model to model.

Has anyone successfully implemented ir control of an RCA TV using iRule/GC-100? TV is a 46LA45RQ and I have tried the iRule database codes as well as hex codes found at remotecentral all to no avail. I have tried the GC supplied emitters as well as some that came with the buffalo electronics ir kit that I have been using for years. I see the emitter flash (affixed directly to ir port on tv bezel) but no commands have any effect.

The only thing I have not tried yet is changing ports on the GC-100 (going to try that now) but wanted to get this out there in case anyone has run across something RCA specific!

***EDIT*** After trying the codes shared below (thanks 3FingeredGlove) and then contacting both iRule and Global Cache, I ended up buying the GC-IRL and capturing codes from my remote. That did the trick, and I am back on track! I didn't figure this warranted a new post, but wanted to share my findings for future reference.

Nearly all RCA TV use the RCA IR protocol, device 15. The standard modulation frequency is 56KHz, but some sets use 38KHz instead. Here's Vol+ at 38KHz:

It seems that there is many users with an ip camera on their network and viewing it in iRule. With the problems I see in the iRule forum about MJPEG in iOS, what kind of camera are available without that particular codec? Are those of you able to view in iRule using some different kind if camera? I really want to set up a few ip cams around the house and I'm not sure now what to buy.

There are lots of cameras that deliver video in the newer, higher-quality, lighter-weight H.264 codec, so you have lots of options. As a starting point though, my two favorites are Panasonic and Foscam.

Panasonics are very nice, very solid, but are a bit pricey.

Foscams are not as nice as the Panasonics, not nearly the build quality, but still very capable and much less expensive than the comparable Panasonic cameras.
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006ZP8UOW

I'm pretty cheap about some things, so I like the Foscams. The Foscam FI8910 typically sells for around $90 online, but Home Depot has it right now for $65, which is a great price.

Cheers,
SC

Amazon must have heard you talk about them .. the Foscam is now $65 free ship with prime! (correct link below)

post #8588 of 9755
That's funny... It was $89 I think when I posted earlier.

I think Amazon has automated tools to keep their pricing competitive whenever possible.

Well, now if you don't have a Home Depot nearby, or they don't have it, or just if you like shopping in your underwear, you're good to go. smile.gif

I have three of these.. they get around 55 every now and then on dealnews. They are ok.. although they dont very well with vera, but still works better than the most out there in this category for zwave devices.

I don't think I've ever seen one at $55 - not with free shipping, anyway. I bought one of mine from a Groupon for in the $55 ballpark, but paid I think $5 in shipping. It was a good deal, but I think it took damn near a month to show up. If a guy definitely wants one, you can be pretty confident it isn't going to get much cheaper than $65, or if it does, by only $5-10, and it could be months from now. $75-80 or so is more typical, so $65 is a very good price.

Does anyone have a recommendation that would work with a QSC 3102 that is a commercial grade amplifier? It puts out 1,000 watts per channel.

Thanks

Hey Jacket_fan

This is not a cheap solution, but I am using a Panamax M4315-Pro unit to remotely power on my two subwoofers and my two self powered front speakers in my home theater room through iRule. It is connected by RS232 to a Global Cache GC-100-12 and it works great! I even have feedback working to tell me if the outlets are on or off on my iRule panel. Try searching eBay for a used one, because it is expensive if bought new. OneCall is selling a refurbished model for $350, so like I said, it is not a cheap solution. I tried several things such as what you are looking at but they did not work for my situation. Then I hit upon the Panamax and it is perfect for my situation.

Also, I do have an APC AP9225 MasterSwitch Power Distribution Unit that might work for you if you are interested. It can be accessed through a web interface. Let me know and I can give you more details.

Why not just use the trigger off the receiver (rather than irule). Something like this .. http://www.smarthome.com/81301/Xantech-AC1-Controlled-AC-Outlet/p.aspx You will need a 12v for the trigger.

Or you can use a Insteon appliance relay.

Well, I must say, that I never saw that for a solution and I was looking for a long time to come up with something to power on and off 4 powered pieces of equipment remotely. Using that (Xantech AC1 Controlled AC Outlet) and a power strip looks like it might have worked for me by hooking it up to the triggers on the back of my pre-amp. Oh well! But thanks for the link, you never know when I might re-think my setup.

Now, whether your idea would work for Jacket_fan I cannot say, but I think it could have worked for me. Thanks

I'll give another +1 for the Foscam cameras. I have 3 of the FI8918W model and have been very happy. Not crystal clear but they work well for keeping an eye on my young kids.

I successfully embedded the video stream as a URL on my ipod touch iRule device with this:

http://camera.ip.address/videostream.cgi?user=****&pwd=***&resolution=8

This give s a 320x240 feed. res=32 gives 640x480


I also really like it on my android devices as iRule launches any external app so I launch IP Camviewer PRO which has a great interface and a simple press of the back button goes right back to iRule.

I am curious if you ever tried the Blue Iris software?

Thanks.

Nope. I've been happy with IP Cam Viewer PRO for my needs so haven't explored other pay apps. I've tried a couple of others that had free versions but they didn't offer anything that I wasn't getting with the app I already paid for. I'm also very impressed with the developer, he's answered questions I've had same day via email and he releases updates with new features and additional camera support nearly every week. Well worth the $5 charge. I use the app daily on several different devices and it just works.

Was playing with Webgizmo the other day trying to embed the interface in the irule page for Jriver media player.
I was wondering if there was a way to make the background of webgizmo look transparent so that the icons could blend withe irules background and look as one.
After going back and forth Jriver forums, and no help.. i spent nearly half the weekend trying to figure it out on how to make the background transparent, i succeeded.

Currently i am still trying to mod webgizmo by changing all the default icons and top bars and navigation buttons work is in progress, but for your eyes on how the transparent background looks.. here is a screenshot of my work in progress, along with few of my other irule pages, which is also going through a major overhaul.

The main page.


A preface of the internal workings of just one of my components



Here is the webgizmo page.. I still have to change and tweak stuff on this page.



I am still working on changing various background images, naviation and various components of the UI.

When choosing an Android tablet, what are the most important hardware specs to consider?

My assumption is that resolution should be high on the list, but does anyone find the Irule application to be particularly CPU intensive? Is a single core CPU sufficient? How about memory?

I am zeroing in on 7" tablets since they have decent real estate and can be held in my hand. Thanks for any advice.
post #8602 of 9755
I bought a Nexus 7 (8gb version) and it works fantastic for the iRule remote. The originals are fairly cheap and I only use mine as a remote (and surfing if folks want a bathroom break!). The size is good with enough real estate for a good layout, but not to big that it feels like your holding a laptop. I can't imagine how people who use a large iPad like that big dude.

The only very small nit pick is that I wish there was a desktop docking station to sit it into for charging instead of plugging it in. But that isn't enough to count it down.

I am a total newbie to irule, and have a buncha questions.
First, assuming you have a DCT, and AVR in room 1, and a TV in room 2, how many itach devices would I need? Second, are they reliable for turning devices on and off? Finally, is there an irule clone for Windows 7 or Windows 8?
post #8604 of 9755
You will need a Global Cache device (any model capable of IR blasters) in each room connected to your home network.

iRule is not ported for Windows. You will need an Android or Apple based tablet or phone (phone screen is too small for a real remote IMO)
post #8605 of 9755
Saw this on another forum probably dutch, someone using irule has posted this image.. anyone knows if this is xbmc's web interface modded and embedded into irule. or something else setup? If not anyoneknows how this can be achiveved?

I have 2 samsung tab 2 7 inch tables, along with an ipad and kindle fire.. all are wall mounted for that works are controllers for home automation, and have setup irule on them as well...all work fine. though the ipad rocks.. but other android tablet works just prefectly fine too.

Great, thanks for answering! I found some windows clones, but those belong in another thread.

Is it possible to have irule open the xbmc app from within irule? What is the URL to do this or is there a better way to be able to control xbmc from irule?

Are you using iOS or Android?

I am not sure about iOS, but the Android version of irule can launch any external app (and I love it for that). The URL to launch it comes from the playstore. Navigate to any app on the playstore in a browser and copy the data after ID= from the url, for the official XBMC remote that is:

org.xbmc.android.remote


There are also a pretty full list of commands in the iRule builder. XMBC JSON FRODO is the device name. I've created a page on my tablet for xbmc control using mostly the commands from this device, navigation, menu, play, pause, stop, FF, RW. But I also have the XMBC logo on the page and pressing it launches the external XBMC remote app which has a bit more control and options.

I think that is what I was looking for! I am running two different iPads (mine and my wife's). I see the ability to launch apps but I cannot get it to launch XBMC. I was originally controlling my XBMC HTPC with the MCE controller but finding there were a few buttons that I could not properly control. Your recommendation for the device will probably take care of that problem. Thanks a ton!

So much to learn about iRule! I know it can do everything I want, but taking the time to program it all and get everything is intense. My latest two problems are if I shutdown the whole system and the Blu Ray player was never turned on, it sends the power toggle signal and turns on the Blu Ray rather than leaving it off. Any thoughts there? Also my HTPC wont stay asleep. I have turned of waking from USB but cant find the signal that is waking it up.

Thanks a ton for your help and any additional help.
