There are also a good number of missing features. It's a 1.x release and has a long way to go.

IDK, but I'm comparing my gf's iPhone 5 to my Samsung S2 and a Kindle Fire. Maybe not a fair comparison as the iPhone is newer, but the iRule had a lot of glitchy issues with the Android I had to program around. The iPhone on the other hand just plain worked, smoothly, loads fast, no lag. I have a ton of pages and feedbacks on my system. It's no secret that they update the program for apple devices first and then try to play catch up with the Android.

 

 

 

Thanks Guys,

 

I guess, I will hold off with getting an Android device for a bit. Maybe Apple will come out with a retina iPad mini very soon after all.

I am an android guy mainly, but iRule seems to be what I really need to control my set up. Would a 1st or 2nd gen iPad be adequate (or more) for running irule speedily?

I have a 1st gen. iPad and iRule runs on it flawlessly. I see no difference in speed between it and my mini.

I want iRule so bad so that I can operate my entire house (AV + lights/security/energy) ONE app, but that tv guide feature of roomie is too hard to beat and is worth running 2 apps to control everything. iRule....GET THAT FEATURE

You realize roomie has gone to a subscription arrangement, right? Would you be willing to pay iRule a monthly/yearly fee for guide data? This data involves real costs to deliver, and since I already pay TiVo for it, have no need for it in iRule.

Yes. I use roomie today and the subscription costs literally mean nothing to me. $17? Are you kidding me? If iRule were to have this feature at that price, it's a NO BRAINER to me. iRule already has a couple head scratchers in there, such as modules are paid PER HANDSET (like Sonos module), but again, to me, it's not a problem.

I'll be testing out the iRule builder and building a remote just for the fun of it and also in the event I make the switch. I'm on the border because I like the customizations and the fact I can do everything on iRule. But that HD Guide feature on roomie is simply killer.

Has anyone asked iRule if they are planning to drop support for iOS 5? The iPad 1 can only run iOS 5 and if that is dropped I will lose my dedicated iRule remote since I don't use my iPad 3 for iRule.

I'm sure they will eventually, but i hope it isn't any time soon. It was just earlier this year that they dropped support for 4.2.1 (and as a result i had to buy a bunch of 3g ipods to replace all of my 2g's). If they drop 5 soon and i have to go replace all the 3g's i just bought with 4g's i'm not going to be a happy camper. According to Itai though, it's not their decision, it's forced on them by apple.

Agreed, but you might be surprised how many people got bent over the subscription fees (granted the dev could have handled it better).

Even iRule bent some folks when device limits were somewhat silently introduced in newer versions.

While I'm less than thrilled that design of my remotes is dependent on iRule's servers, IMHO it's the best game in town at the moment, even with the clunky and repetitive process of building remotes.

Maybe they will go the same route as Roomie and have a dedicated app (older version) just for iOS 5....as long they don't charge for it as a separate app.

It is primarily up to Apple. With each new version of XCode comes older platforms you can no longer compile for. Of course, you need the newest version to develop for the latest and greatest, and it has become increasingly more difficult to use the same project in multiple versions of XCode. Keeping two code bases, with one solely designed for legacy platforms is simply not cost effective.

As a hardware company, Apple has even less motivation to allocate resources to keep the current dev platform compatible with legacy devices. When there's a new, better way, the old way is deprecated. That's just Apple. Figure three to four hardware cycles until devs will no longer be able to keep current and still target builds for your device/os version.

can some one please point out where can I find the listening mode buttons for the onkyo/integra for the retina display.

You might want to read that fine print again. I have the iTunes module installed on 3 handsets and I've only paid once, legally. I run the pro version so it may be different for the standard version.

Has anyone used the Hue lights and been able to control them with iRule? I am looking for the most cost effective route to being able to control everything in my theater. The lighting is next!

Handset is what it is in the builder and is defined by either unique resolution or GUI. So if you have 10 ipad retinas syncing to the same GUI, that is ONE handset. Doesn't make a difference whether you have Pro or Basic license.

I would like to understand how to use variables and appears there are no instructions/tutorial on the iRule Support site?

I think Variables will help me do the following:
- Have one panel per device that I am controlling: Tivo, Blue Ray and Apple TV
- I will have a home page with 6 Buttons... One set for controlling my 3 devices when I am watching from Den TV and another for when I am watching my bedroom TV
- The same device panel will be used for both Den and Bedroom but a variable will be passed from the home page so it knows: which TV to control (Den or Bedroom), which HDMI Matrix option to select and if Zone 2 on the AVR needs to be turned on if in bedroom

Will this work using variable?

Can someone give me a jump start on how I would do this? Or point me to a tutorial?

Thanks in advance,

Doug

Doug,

Take a look at the manual found on iRule's website: video.iruleathome.com/training/UserManual.pdf

I've uninstalled EG, reinstalled the latest EG, and deleted and added back the Broadcaster plugin from my config. I'm about ready to switch to MCE Controller, even though EG broadcaster works fine on my personal system. The only difference between the two systems is mine is Win8 and the other is Win7. I may also try changing the port from 33333 to something else.

The problem is back. I'm going to switch the system over to MCE Controller program. If that doesn't work then I'll go with IR.

Is anyone else having issues with iRule on an Ipad 1 since the latest updates?

 

I have been running iRule on a 16GB Ipad 1 for years now with no problem.  Ever since the last two updates I have the following issues.

 

Overall the App is not as responsive, ie.. press a link and it is slow to switch to the linked panel.

 

When switching between apps and back to iRule it takes a few seconds for iRule to become responsive and or connect to gateways, this used to be almost instant.

 

50% of the time when switching back to iRule, iRule locks up then quits.

 

I know we are up to like the ipad 5 almost now but my ipad 1 is used almost exclusively for iRule and has been fine until now so I hope this is not a sign of things to come.

 

Any ideas or similar experiences?

Sorry for the dumb question but can somebody explain the difference between pinned and unpinned drawer.
post #8902 of 9754
pinned means the drawer is always open. Unpinned means you have to open the drawer manually.

Thanks,no where did I see that explained like that .

Can anyone shed some light why the iRule Device codes for JRiver don't work for me?

I have set up JRiver using a Network Gateway, put in a port number, my JRiver Gateway symbol Green, yet when I try one of the JRiver device commands nothing happens.

JRiver must be set up as an HTTP gateway, using my device or another from the library.

Yeah I'm also having theses issues. My pages sometime don't swipe at all, slow transition from other apps back to iRule with it sometimes just hanging and crashing. IRule also crashes occasionally if it sits on my homepage for hours with no activity, I'll walk by my 1st gen iPad and the app has crashed. The Sonos integration also causes many hang ups and crashes. It does work flawlessly on my DirecTV page. It seems it happens when trying to go in and out of the app or using Sonos. You mentioned the gateways, I also see only a white gateway symbol at times and I find I need to go to the beginning and deselect the panel and then it's fine again. But that is frustrating and the WAF is low at that point.

Similar issues here with iPad1.
