Unfortunately, as you'll already know, from the end of 2020 on we won't be able to make any changes to its config, rendering it practically useless from there on.
So what have you switched to / will be switching to?
I already cast an eye over Kramer Control (too expensive and obviously more targeted towards companies than the enthusiast user), RTI (still expensive and reportedly rather unstable) and DemoPad (interesting, although seemingly quite complicated to set up - I'm not a programmer).
Is there something out there that will work with my global caché hardware, so I'll be able to keep that?
I'd be willing to pay a monthly fee of up to $10 when I can be sure it's easy to use (well, similarly easy to iRule), stable and will stick around for some years (or even decades).
Any suggestions or recommendations?
Thanks in advance!
After having been a long time iRule user, I have made the switch to Kramer Control. For me the entry ticket into their ecosystem was basically 'only' to get their controller ('Brain'), as I was able to reuse all of my existing components I had for iRule (GC, iPads, etc.). Kramer Control feels like an evolution of iRule (which it is).
Granted, a Brain typically goes for bit less than $800, but considering that I have spent a LOT more over the years even on single remotes and it has NO subscription fee, I am OK with it. I also like that I am able to make changes to the system myself and don't have to pay a programmer for it.
I wish that Kramer became a bit more HT enthusiast minded, though. Some of the implementations/features are too much geared towards enterprise/corporate environments (conference rooms, etc.).
I started a thread here
. I would love to see Kramer Control getting a bit more traction here. I think it has huge potential for us enthusiasts.
