So maybe do that I did. Isn't it still free/cheap ?

I think you can even buy 1 month of cloud-Service and really do some testing.

Sorry I used the wrong term. It looks like the instructions for the serial cable states that it can be the “only” cable that is connected to the “blaster”, no other cables. That has me scratching my head why they would do that. Am I reading that correctly?

If that is the case, is it possible to run two blasters? Basically I would still need IR for the stuff that won’t work on IP.

I don’t have everything hooked up and am tearing apart my theater trying to prepare for HT2.0 ;-) or I would just try it out for sure. Just trying to get my ducks in a row.

I don’t have blasters but you should be able to run as many as you need. Each would have an ip address. I have five or six global cache running around.

Ok. Thanks! That makes sense.


So what app/remote system are you using?

I’m using simple control but I started on 4.5 so my global cache devices are grandfathered in. I think I read that it is thought that global cache makes the blaster for them.

Not even sure how that would work since this is a DIY solution. You are likely one of the only ones here needing to hook-up those exact machines.

Personally, (in the beginning) I tested software, hardware, config, network, etc ... just to make sure there were no "deal breaker" issues.

I am hoping someone can provide me some direction. I am using the latest simple control but I am unable to control the zoom, focus or lens shift of my JVC RS540 projector. I can do anything else I want but I can't get the projector to respond to me using either the arrow keys or the direct commands that say lens shift left, or zoom in, etc...

Anyone else with a JVC projector be controlled over IP have that working?

Greetings,

Yes, you will need a Simple Blaster, which will allow you to learn IR codes for SC.

You can point the remote at the blaster and it will learn the codes.

I am having problems getting a qled Samsung tv to respond.It has WOL and I have input the correct mac address. I have submitted several requests to the simplecontrol support team but get back replies stating I have put in the wrong mac add . The tv responds when I test the remote while creating the activity everything works . I cannot understand or figure out what to do next. Anyone has any ideas please your help will be appreciated. The model of the tv is QN65FX. I have given te tv a fixed ip.

Not sure about your particular TV, but does it have WiFi as well as an Ethernet network port? If so you need to use the MAC that’s associated with the port that’s actually connecting to your home network. For instance, if you use the Ethernet port, be sure you're using the MAC for the Ethernet port.

Having said that, my experience with WOL over the years (on both enterprise as well as home gear) has been dodgy at best. 🙂

Thanks yes I agree with you about wol.The mac is the right one.I have an Unifi network and I got the MAC address from there. What I think is happening is that the Samsung tv has a built in Samsung hub. As a security feature it wants permission for my ipad to connect. I have finally given up on it and going the old trusty IR way. Finding the ir receiver was another adventure. Thanks for your help.

On the LG oled and on a roku tv I got, you have to enable the sleep mode instead of true power off. It’s similar to sleep on a laptop. When the LG loses power you have to turn on the tv with the remote once and then it will sleep and wake via tcp. I had the IR on the LG for a while and then figured it out. It’s worth it to delete the IR. Good luck.

I have a 2016 LG 70 in tv and followed this from the SimpleControl forum I copied it for you:
I couldn’t get my LG B6 (2016 model) to Power On/Wake on LAN, but the other day I finally cracked the code. It’s been working perfectly ever since. Note that my B6 is connected via ethernet, but I assume this would work over wi-fi as well. I had also given the B6 a static IP address in my router.


NETWORK > Wired Connection [Ethernet] (Click on this setting to see the B6’s MAC address, which you’ll need both to set up a static IP address and to do Wake on LAN in Simple Control.)

NETWORK > LG Connect Apps > ON

GENERAL > Mobile TV On > ON

GENERAL > Standby Light > ON (So that the red light on the front of the TV is illuminated when it’s in Standby mode.)

GENERAL > Quick Start+ > ON (So that when you power off the TV, it doesn’t actually power all the way off, but instead sits in Standby mode. From what I can tell, if this setting is off, the TV won’t respond to Wake on LAN.)

Here’s how I set up the LG B6 in Simple Control:

Add Device > LG TV (WebOS)

After you choose your initial settings, hit Save, then back out of the Edit menu completely.

Hit the Edit icon again, and go back in to the newly added LG TV and hit Test Remote. I’m pretty sure this is how I got the PIN screen to pop up on the TV for pairing. Enter the PIN in Simple Control.

Add or Edit an Activity, and in the list of Start commands, add a command for the LG TV, and choose +Wake On LAN.

The app then jumps back to the Edit Command screen. Here’s where you have to enter the B6’s MAC address (even though it says it’s only necessary for Manual IP devices). At first, I left out the MAC address, and it didn’t work. Just enter the letters/numbers in a single string with no colons. Save.

Edit the System Off activity, and add a Power Off command for the LG TV. Again, be sure to include the MAC address as above.

Customize your various Activity remotes as desired to include commands for the LG B6.

That’s it. Now the B6 always goes into Standby mode (and turns on its red standby light) instead of powering all the way off, and thus it’s receptive to the Wake on LAN command from Simple Control.

I’m not expert enough to know if this is the tidiest, most efficient way to do it, but this worked for me. And hopefully it’ll help anybody else who was as bummed as I was that the B6 wasn’t working with Simple Control.

Did you try rebooting the iOS device (and SC-Hub) if you have one?

I'm currently an iRule user looking to make the switch to SimpleControl. From some research it appears that SimpleControl is no longer supporting the GlobalCache devices, but I'm wondering if anyone has been able to get them to work? I see can the emitter blinking, but no action happening on either of my IR devices.

It is my understanding that they were grandfathered in for customers who already had it (when they moved to ver 5), but not supported for new customers. SJ

Lutron Caseta and HomeKit questions. Help/Suggestions?

I recently upgraded to version 5.x from 4.5.8. The upgrade was painless when it came to AV components but the Lutron commands were not translated. In 4.5 it was not hard to create custom pop-up activities for the lighting controls for the 3 areas/rooms I needed. I was totally stumped by how to do this in version 5. At most I could create buttons to turn lights off and on but couldn’t see how to create sliders for dimmers. Tech support didn’t really help other than to say upgrading to the latest HomeKit version of hub would handle everything for me easily.

I upgraded to HomeKit version of pro hub and sure enough all the switches and lights appeared in the homebar. When I set them up I grouped the lights in logical rooms etc in both Lutron app and in home app on IOS. But I have some questions and issues.

1. I see no way to add scenes created in Lutron app or Home app to the bottom homebar. Is there a way to do that?
I can add Lutron scenes using .buttonpress command but can’t figure out how to get those into homebar - can only use them as part of activities.

2. Has anyone built controls in version 5 that allow for sliders to control Lutron dimmers. Only commands that I can see do not seem to have any feedback options that were necessary for creating sliders in version 4.x

Thanks in advance.

SC v4.5 & iOS Updates

I'm another user still using SC 4.5. I've given up asking support any questions. Usually you get a stock response that v4.5 isn't supported and upgrade. When you say you can't due to some devices still running iOS 10, you're told to upgrade all devices! I've also found their support, often by Will Price, unbelievable blunt and often rude. The man has no idea how to deal with customers!

Anyway I'm trying to ascertain whether I can upgrade my iPhone and iPads to the latest iOS version but still run SC 4.5. I have a company iPad running iOS 12 but SC doesn't seem to work well. I have no volume feedback for SONOS but controls all seem to work fine. It seems all feedback has gone. Anyone had issues with SC 4.5 and the latest iOS updates?

Also I have numerous custom devices which I developed plist files for in SC. However I have now no way to update those files and add them back into SC as Dropbox integration is long gone. I tried a suggestion of using iMazing but that didn't work and I was unable to restore the plist file back into SC. Has anyone found a way to edit the plist file and then restore it back so it works with SC 4.5?

I was seriously considering moving to Demopad but I'm a Mac user and therefore running the design software is more difficult and I really don't fancy having to design and learn an entire new system. Besides I have several blasters with SC which will be unusable with any other platform.

I’m sorry to say I think you’re hamstrung. It got to the point where nothing was working for me with 4.5. The actual upgrade to 5.x was pretty simple for me (and support WILL help you with that (no pun intended)), but your setup might be more complicated than mine with the custom files you developed.

I was a Roomie early adopter & up to the time of the upgrade I had only ever paid the initial $49.95 and was grandfathered around all the subsequent upgrade/subscription charges. Though I am by no means a fan of consumption-based pricing, given that’s becoming the norm $20/year I guess is reasonable. But I’m not that thrilled with the new UX, and my phones are always losing touch with the always-running Simple Server, requiring meI to go fiddle with that app so my wife can turn off the lights at night.

Yes I thought that might be the case.

I'll bear with what I've got for now.

By any chance, has anyone gotten Plex to work properly on the newest versions of Simple Control? I'm able to get the basic commands to work like play, stop, next, etc., but clicking on items in the media guide does not do anything whereas it should start playing what I clicked on.

Projector: LG PF1500W; Receiver: Sony STR-DN1080; Speakers: Monitor Audio Controlled Performance Inwalls and Inceilings; Subwoofer(s): SVS PC-2000; Bluray Player: Sony BDP-S6500; Remote: Roomie Remote; Cables: Monoprice

I have a prepro that does show up in the list of devices when I manually add it but according to Support, it is not supported and they won't give me any help or advice on how to get it working (only Wake-On-LAN works for me, none of the other commands or auto generated buttons). So I am looking to set up my own commands for this device. I have a couple of questions.

1. Is there anyway to see what commands are already set up in the existing codeset? I have the codeset id but haven't found a way to get in to browse it or download it for editing. I've asked support but they have been silent.

2. Can I blend my own commands with the commands that are already in the SimpleControl database or is it one or the other?

3. There are two parameters in my existing config file after manually adding my prepro. One is called codesetuuid, which I assume is a pointer to the commands and the other is called uuid, which might be the auto generated UI. Can either of these be edited?

Thanks for any help or advice, I got nowhere with the official support line. They basically said RTFM and my device is unsupported, so I'm on my own. Nice.

The man has no idea how to deal with customers!

Anyway I'm trying to ascertain whether I can upgrade my iPhone and iPads to the latest iOS version but still run SC 4.5. I have a company iPad running iOS 12 but SC doesn't seem to work well. I have no volume feedback for SONOS but controls all seem to work fine. It seems all feedback has gone. Anyone had issues with SC 4.5 and the latest iOS updates?

Also I have numerous custom devices which I developed plist files for in SC. However I have now no way to update those files and add them back into SC as Dropbox integration is long gone. I tried a suggestion of using iMazing but that didn't work and I was unable to restore the plist file back into SC. Has anyone found a way to edit the plist file and then restore it back so it works with SC 4.5?

I was seriously considering moving to Demopad but I'm a Mac user and therefore running the design software is more difficult and I really don't fancy having to design and learn an entire new system. Besides I have several blasters with SC which will be unusable with any other platform.
I may be too late to the party, but saw your post and wanted to say that I still have 2 clients running 4.5 on iOS12, both with Sonos, and both are working fine - EXCEPT with AppleTV 4K units, which can no longer be controlled by 4.5 due to changes in tvOS (and no viable way to roll the units back to an early tvOS...believe me, I've tried).

So, FWIW, it does work here. Maybe if you can give the specifics about your system, especially Sonos, how it's set up, how many units you have, if Sonos app works, etc. I can help you find a solution...

I’ve asked some of these questions before and this is what they said:

1. No, you have to add from scratch
2. No, see prev answer.
3. Not sure but they normally refer you to the doc for answers
