I created a simple custom remote in Roomie using the iTach learning feature to control a single RGB strip. Been working fine through the blaster.

I have two long led strips connected to their transformer, and that is plugged into an Insteon outlet - I use an ISY controller for that and a lot of other lighting devices, and Roomie picks up all configured ISY devices and allows complete control

same question for Runco projectors. It just lists them as IR. Anyone try it with RS232 or are you using IR?

Im bumping my question. im running wires in my theater now and I want to know what I should run to the projector and the cineslide to control them using roomie.

@SKINSnCANES

I don't have first-hand knowledge with the two devices you mention, but their absence from the IP & Serial compatibility lists on the Roomie website indicates that they don't fall into the "works automatically" category that you are looking for.

Having said that, if you have access to a device's serial protocol command set it's pretty trivial to achieve what you want to do (such as http://www.roomieremote.com/forums/topic/serial-control-of-runco-cw50-mc/)......or, as you mentioned, you can implement IR control, using a 2-wire cable.

If uncertain, and as cable is so cheap, at a minimum I'd be tempted to run both a Cat5 and a multi-wire cable to give you the flexibility of using IP in the future, and IR or Serial now (most Serial connections, especially on AV equipment, use only a small number of the available pins (typically 3 or 5) - so you can get away with a 4 or 8 wire cable). This would also give you flexibility for future equipment updates and accommodate the trend towards IP-enabling everything.

Hi all....

I thought I would share an idea here. I did post this in the Roomie Remote website but I like the sharing of ideas to 'pay it forward' since I grab so much useful info here. I have 4 iPads running Roomie Remote in my house - 2 of them are magnetic induction wall mounted using Launchports ( http://www.launchport.com/products ) and 2 are using the Launchport desktop stands. These units control 4 AV systems in the house - flawlessly I might add.

But I have these beautiful ipads that can also be digital picture frames when not controlling AV. There is no 'automatic' screen saver for the iPad to do this (I looked). Sure there is the flower icon thing but you need to lock or auto lock the ipad and manually turn it on to play. I want an automatic solution to show a picture slide show.

So I set out to develop a crude screen saver idea here. What if we used the URL command to show an HTML web based slide show in the Roomie Window?

I have made significant progress with this idea for a photo screensaver to show within Roomie. It’s actually better than what I expected. Using Adobe Lightroom, I found a 3rd party Lightroom plugin app for $20 that allows you to take a photo collection you can define in Lightroom, create a self transitioning photo slideshow, and export that slideshow to an FTP server or network computer folder. Everything is fully customizable with respect to the time to show each image to the type of transitions, etc. So my slideshow displays full screen in a browser window with self-transitioning images. And its not flash – its HTML5 – so it works on the iPad.

With the slideshow exported and the index.html file created by this plugin, I simply call up that index.html page with the URL command in Roomie and select “show in Roomie”. This command is added as the last command to my “power off” activity.

BINGO! When I power off, I have on the left side of Roomie all the regular activities, but in the right browser window of Roomie I have a self transitioning slideshow as a “screen saver”. It’s awesome.

Anytime I want, I can go back to Lightroom and add or replace images to the slideshow and simply export the slideshow again.

This is the link for the Lightroom Plugin if anyone wants to try this. Of course you need to be a Lightroom user first. http://digicrafts.com.hk/components/LightroomHTML5PhotoGallery?stage=Live#Requirements_tab

I thought I would share.

Enjoy.

So I just stumbled on to this thread based on another user's recommendation and just need some basic guidance to be sure I get the right "pieces"

My setup:

Equipment rack with receiver, DVD player, DirecTV DVR, Dune player, XBOX, and Wii then on my ceiling a projector. Obviously IR wise I need to be able to control the projector (just turn on and off as all video goes to the same HDMI port on the projector) as it appears all my other equipment would be IP controllable based on the compatibility chart on the Roomie website.

So equipment wise I should only need the IP2IR box and a single IR emitter ($90) -- can this cable be extended to something like 30 feet? I need to put the box in the equipment closet and of course the projector is on the ceiling across the room.

Then I need the app from the store ($40)


Does this sound correct?


Equipment is

IPAD 4
Pioneer SC-1522
Pioneer BDP-62
Dune HD Max
DirecTV HR21
BenQ W6000 Projector

Naturally the Wii and XBOX all I care about there is changing the input on the RCVR so nothing to worry about there.

Thanks in advance for the advice.

Greg


**EDIT after a little more research it appears that I might be better with the wireless ITACH device and a serial connection. I could put this in the ceiling with the projector and have control over it without running a bunch of wires. Then all the units in my equipment rack could be controlled via their network connection/IP control since they are on Roomie's list. Does this seem correct?

Greg,

Ill jump in and say you will love Roomie. Serial can be a bit tricky. You need to be sure if you need a straight cable or null modem cable. As for IP control some devices (well... most devices) do not support wake on LAN so you might be using more IR blasting than you think. If it were me, (well, it was me in the beginning lolol) I would start with a serial iTach device (wired or wireless) and also an IR iTach device because I am pretty confident you will use it.

I have 3 serial and 4 IR iTachs in my setup to control 4 systems.

Roomie is by far the easiest automation system I used (coming from CQC) but its not without its learning curve. The Roomie site is great and Roomie has GREAT tech support.

Good luck!

So I downloaded the app and did some set up and overall it works great. Love the DTV guide on the iPad.

One problem. I can turn the system off and shut everything down, no problem but I cannot turn things on.

For example when I press Watch TV nothing happens. If the receiver is on and I press Watch TV it changes inputs etc and works just fine.

Also if I am watching TV and then press watch DVD it will not turn the DVD player on either. It changes inputs on the receiver just fine but it seems turning things on is an issue.

Greg

EDIT - Ok so I figured out the receiver it had to turn on Network Standby Mode. I would assume the Pioneer Bluray player has something similar so i will check that as well. Now I just need to get to power on the Dune player and I think i am good to go.

Have you read the compatibility list on the roomie website? Unless you have an itach and the IR pack certain things won't turn on etc.
post #940 of 1422
Yes I checked the compatibility chart on Roomie and all my items (but projector) are compatible via IP. I am going to get an ITach IR device for the projector and was hoping to avoid needing one for the equipment rack as well (costs another $100).

Try using the manual remote option in roomie for the blu ray player or whatever device you're setting up and play with the commands and see which button turns it on. Sometimes power on doesn't work, but power toggle will, or vice Versa.
post #942 of 1422
Anyone using the Itach Flex line yet? I need to go ahead and get something to control my projector and am wondering if I should go with the flex line or the old version. I would be looking at a Wifi model since the projector is on the ceiling. Also not sure if I stick with IR or go serial since the projector has a serial port on it.

All I need the unit to do is turn the projector on and off.

Thanks in advance.

Greg

For the 'power on' issues.... Are you using 'wake on lan' command instead of the power button? I had that issue [/slaps forehead]

Yes I tried both and had no luck with either that or the power on or power toggle.

I didn't get a chance to mess with it yesterday as my wife and kids took the Ipad on a trip yesterday so it wasn't at home. Time to invest in a dedicated ipad just for the family room I guess.

I would appreciate your advice on the Roomie Remote. I've searched the Roomie site and forums and read through this forum completely, but I can't find answers as to the equipment I would need to build a Roomie system or how to get it working.

I want to control the components listed in my signature below, so my wife may use our system easily. I only wish basic functions like power on/off, input selection, volume, mute, play/pause/stop. I don't care about controlling lighting, drapes, fish grooming, or other functions. I want something that won't require line of sight, and I don't want to have to stick emitters on the front of the components. I would like to be able to program changes into the system, for example, when we get a new display.

I was hoping to control the system through an iPad/iPad Mini. We have an Apple gigabit network using an Airport Extreme and an Express to extend range. I could locate another Extreme or Express near my components.

All of our components (except for the TV) have RS232. I know nothing about this method of control and would appreciate any insights you might offer. For example, I've seen the iTach serial adapter boxes for wifi and ethernet on the Roomie site but don't understand how they work. Would I need one of these for each component? How do they connect together?

Of our components, only the Oppo 105 is included in Roomie's serial compatibility list. They referred me to a Device Development Kit, but I don't know what this entails. Our Bryston SP3 processor is listed in the Roomie IR compatibility list.

If my queries are so basic as to divert this thread with information that the participants already know, perhaps you could PM me?

Thanks very much,

RJ

I suggest using the pure IR solution. Get your setup working and then get comfortable with Roomie. If you feel you need two-way-feedback, meaning, seeing the current volume or the input of the Bryston, then look to add serial connectivity later. I say later because if Bryston isn't supported by default with serial, you'll need to contact Bryston for their RS-232 code set. They most certainly have it in a spreadsheet or something. Anthem does that and I have the full code set. It's more time consuming than anything else to build up the file. If you've ever done any bit of text editing/coding/XML, it's very easy to do.

Anyone have an update on how Roomie is handling your insteon gear. I am thinking of pulling the trigger on roomie but want to be able to control my lights and scenes thru roomie and my smartlinc.
Thanks

I have been unable to get it to work with my SmartLinc 2412N. I understand it works well if you have an ISY99x though. I am considering upgrading to the ISY, but it is rather expensive for my needs (5 switches).
post #948 of 1422
I contacted Roomie suppor and got this quick reply regarding smartlinc.
"There is a bug with very high scene numbers. Importing the enclosed resolves it.
To install this command set, just backup your Roomie configuration to Dropbox or iTunes File Sharing using Roomie's Settings panel. Make sure a "Roomie" folder exists on your Dropbox if using that method. Then, insert this file into the resulting directory and Restore your configuration. This will override the internal set.
Note that using this replacement set, you must manually convert scene numbers to their hexadecimal value when entering them in Roomie. So 1 would be 01, 9 would be 09, 45 to use your example would be 2D."

I did this and scenes now work fine. I just found an online decimal to hexadecimal converter, which almost makes sense since there are 16 scenes per room. I'll have to work with this some more before buying the HT add-on. I'll need to create abunch of activities for devices with some individual lighting control activities.
So far very promising.

That's very good news. Insteon and Roomie have not played nice in my setup. I'm going to try the fix right now.
post #950 of 1422
You need to get the file from roomie support and then it should work. I'll work with things this weekend and will probably get the ht addon. For now, insteon scenes are working with smartlinc.

Working Serial File for Anthem AVM50v and D2v series of pre-pro.

Greetings all! I've created the attached Roomie Remote file to enable control of Anthem AVM-series units (20, 30, 40, 50, 50v and 50v 3D) and D1/D2/D2v/D2v3D series units. Some commands in this config file are specific to the D2v and AVM50v series since the older units didn't have the video card or capabilities. Feedback does not yet work. That's something that I hope to have a resolution for in the next few weeks.

For those who would be willing and able to test the serial file, here it is:

How does one edit the IR command for a device in the library? Or add a button to it? The eject button in Roomie for my DVD player power toggles it for some reason.

You can learn the button command via IR. that's the easiest way.

I don't think that there is easy access to the pre-programmed devices (assuming that you're talking about a Roomie-supplied remote). If the eject code is blatantly wrong, I'd raise the issue with Roomie support - they seem quite responsive to situations like this and would be able to correct the codes they're using, for everyone's benefit.

As ThxT mentioned, you could import the correct codes (either by learning them or seeing if your device is listed on RemoteCentral) and then customize a remote design, based on the original remote, with a button added that references the new code just for the eject command(s).

......just remembered: It is possible to override the commands in Roomie’s internal database with your own commands by matching the brand, model, and make of the device and then creating/updating the RoomieCodes plist file - this isn't actually editing the Roomie-provided device library entry, but would achieve what you're looking for.

Correct, if you have the corrected code, let Roomie support know and they can address it.

I'm having trouble with discovery of IP2SL with iHelp. Ethernet cable is connected from adapter into my network switch, and power light is on. Any ideas?

Never mind...bad cable. Ha!

Jano18,

It's been a while since I've been on here, have you had a chance to try out the connection between your itach and C2G IR distribution block? Did you try using a simple 3.5mm (mono or stereo?) cable from an itach emitter port to the C2G input port? Please let me know since I would like to avoid spending $30 on an Xantech cable if possible.

I did get a chance to test it & yes you do need the cable. The output voltage from the IR emitters is 5V & the input on the repeater needs to see 12V. I have used 2 of theses cables one with my GC-100-18R & one with my Harmony 900 into my C2G repeater (one into each receiver port) & it works perfectly. The cable you need is a GC-CGX.
