Please, do you have a link?

Is it this site, you are talking about:

Thanks!

Here's the link for everybody: http://www.touch-ir.com/

But I can't see a function to control my equipment from a browser.

Cheers

Question. I would like to use Demopad to control my AV equipment, for instance my Iscan Duo. Where/how do I find the commands to store in the database?

Also, if I want to add more button choices i.e red, green, blue and yellow round buttons, where would I get these from, or are you limited to what are in the button menu?

Have you tried the Iscan website?

I can imagine that we could even set up a device database, in order to exchange files. What do you think of that?

hengeni - did you ever get responses to your suggestion above? It is crazy to redevelop modules or device databases over and over again. I am also using iRule, but cannot figure out how to save the ones I have modified or am creating (UPB). I definitely don't want to build the same database twice in 2 different apps - bad enough doing it once.

A common module/command set repository that can be shared amongst users makes good sense.

I agree!

If any one needs it, I have ir codes for a sharp aquas LCD and Rs232codes for denon 4308, just pm me if you need them.

Yes it is a hell of a work, to build your own database, but once done correctly, you won't bump into any issue. The device database on rule can't be ported to demopad. You can only copy the hex code and import it in demopad, while converting it. What could be done, is that we load up our database device codes on a private server. I have got the IR codes for Samsung Flat TV, XBOX360, LG Flat TV, DirecTV, Apple TV 2, and IP Commands for Denon 4308 and Rakobridge.

This is where former Pronto owners have it made. I still have my entire IR database in Pronto Pro Edit. Copying, pasting, and converting is somewhat time consuming, but really, really simple.

Also, if I ever need to learn a code from an original remote, I'm seconds away from adding it to the database. The NG Prontos make excellent IR learners. The only issue I've run into is W7 64 compatibility. 64 doesn't have the proper drivers so you need to run 32.

That's because Philips' coders need to go back to school. It's a simple flag that needs to be set in their compiler to not REQUIRE a 32bit CPU (not the OS). W7's WOW mode works just fine with 32 bit drivers. I emailed them about this years ago more than once and never received a single reply.

They are old school and I'm glad they closed the division.

Yes, I can only agree on this. I always liked the Philips remotes, I even still own and use a Pronto TSU 9600. When it came to support, you were often left in the rain by their division. Even simple issues like the 32bit issue have not been solved. I am not happy that they closed their division as I bought my stuff for thousands of euros. As a result the prices did drop and I feel like "robbed", somehow. Even though i am still happy with the remote, even if I'm switching completely to Demopad Ipad remote.

Does anyone use demopad with a music server ? If so how to you get around not having a list function to see whats playing ? I don't want to have to turn on my projector each time.

Unrelated, but I have recently been playing with commandfusion. Wow that has got some great features. If it wasn't 6X the price per license I would swap in a heartbeat. Quite a learning curve though, and some real programming skills needed to take advantage of the more complex features, but the flexibility is endless.....

Oh I wish demopad had user gauges and sliders!

Thanks for the tutorial hengenl, I just bought this and it is great. Any chance demopad.com can put a 2 way tutorial on website? Awesome product.

Is that an option with Demopad? In other words, does Demopad support designing a custom button layout with macros that can be used on a PC?

Thanks to input from mdavej and XARiUS, I found what I was looking for in terms of the technical details needed to control a Panasonic DMP-BDT110/210/310 unit using IP over a 802.11 network. Then I successfully controlled my device using a laptop or iPxx device thanks to Fulltopuk as well as TouchControl after some tweaks on HTTP POST made by its developer.

The technical details on the command format (again thanks to mdavej and XARiUS) can be found in the following post: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...5#post21491715

My TouchControl device layout has been designed and is available at that site, if needed: http://www.touch-ir.com/. I have no affiliation to TouchControl other than I am a very impressed user (more on that in this post http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...5#post21491535).

Also I am not posting this here to bash Demopad, but instead to encourage the development of a side app that can be used on a laptop PC as well as give direction to people searching for this as a firm requirement. If this is or becomes available in Demopad I would like to know.

NOTE: Please note that STOP does not work on my DMP-BDT110 and I am looking for a command for the Display button. Also, if anyone knows of any Status commands for the Panny DMP-BDTx10s, that would be nice to know as well.

I think that most of us want to control their devices through a Tablet or Smartphone, and not through a Pc or Laptop. But i must admit, while working on my Mac it would be nice to be able to do that.

Hi Guys,
Can I have some help with controlling XBMC via IP.
I've read earlier that you have to use the POST commands so I followed that but still cannot get it to work.

As an example I tried this but it does not work.

ACTION TYPE: Send Data to a website.
WEB Data: h ttp://192.168.0.210:8080/AudioPlayer.PlayPause

Which should pause the audio.

What have I done wrong?
Could you reply with an example please and what/where are the correct commands.

Cheers,

Fliposide.

I don't use XBMC but I did notice you have a space between the h and ttp (h ttp and not http).
Could be Just in this post and not in your actual code, but worth checking.
post #262 of 466
The space is just in this post intentionality.

Apparently you can't write http addresses until you have posted several times. To stop spamming I guess

I too would like help on HTTP control of XMBC.
That or WMC/Media Browser

I am about to build a new HTPC and am stuck at the media player stage.
I want to use Demopad for control, but uncertain which of the two media programs would work best with demopad.

Anyone have any input?
XMBC, or WMC+Media Browser

I do have a WMC Remote/USB receiver if it came down to it I could IR.
However I would prefer to do IP control.
post #264 of 466
I've asked twice for help on WMC. Not sure anyone is doing it yet.

Can someone please help me out?
I have been given an iPad 2 for Xmas by my lovely wife and would like to use it to control my AV equipment.
Equipment I have is:

Panasonic P50G20B plasma
Sky HD
Denon AVR-1801 receiver
HTPC running Mediaportal

Would this be possible using an Itach IP2IR device and Demopad?

AFAIK non of the devices, except the HTPC accept IP control

There isn't an app that runs Mediaportal, but intelliremote or eventghost would be able to control Mediaportal. Would either of these be able to be run from within Demopad?

If i cannot find the IR codes for the devices, how can the Itach learn the codes?

Thanks

Paul

Codes for Panasonic, Denon and Sky are easy to find so yes control with an IP2IR will be easy.
Don't know anything about Mediaportal.
post #267 of 466
Thanks Trev

Do you know if the Itach IP2IR will transmit the IR over approx 5 metres?
I would like to have my emitters at the opposite end of the room to my HT gear.

What is the difference between the IR blaster and the standard emitters?
Can the blaster only transmit to one device?

You would not use the emitters to send IR across the room. That is what the blaster is for. As long as the blaster is plugged into port three, and port three is configured properly, the blaster will shower the opposite wall with IR. Any component on that wall should respond. Emitters are designed to be stuck to the receiving eye of each component. Their IR signal strength is too low to travel even a couple of inches.

Does anyone have any photos they can post of their equipment with either Keene's or Global Cache's emitters stuck to them.
I am very concerned that they are not going to look appropriate in the lounge.

How do you stick these to the AV devices?

Confused but desperately wanting to get this up and running.

Each emitter comes with an adhesive backing. You peel of the backing and then stick the emitter directly over the receiving eye of the component. Some users don't mind the look of the emitters stuck to a component but if the components are in a closet it wouldn't really matter. My system is all out in the open in a wall unit at the front of the room. what I've done is disassembled each of my IR controlled components and fished the emitter through the back panel and placed it directly over the receiving eye behind the faceplate. None of my 4 IR emitters can be seen as they're hidden inside each component. It's a lot of work but for me, it was worth it.
