I have a 6PG+ and have ceiling mounted it. I previously had it floor mounted and sent an IR signal to it with an emitter stuck on the IR Receiver.


My equipment is now in a completely different location. I would like to control the unit with an RTI Remote device (RS232 kind of like a Crestron unit).


It appears my options are:

1) Use the Wired Remote input

2) Remote terminal input

3) IR emitter stuck onto the IR receiver


It appears that:

1) Use the Wired Remote input

- Would not accept a Xantech IR Emitter type signal


2) Remote terminal input

- Is not RS232


3) IR emitter stuck onto the IR receiver

- My only option


Can anyone confirm or deny this?

The option input will accept rs232. It is used to connect a computer running the NEC software.

Marc,


Can I control it with RS232 without running the software?


I want to control it with an RTI device instead of a PC. Are there specifications anywhere?

Tinman,


do you have a list of the RS-232 control codes available, or can you mail me the NEC control software ?

I just have my Crestron system up and running and want to control my 9PG+ too.

I don't have the control codes. Try snaggs projector specs for the software. I "Had" the manual for it, if I can find it, I'll get it to Snaggs to upload it.

I have looked all over for it. Nothing. It is probably on an old zip disk somewhere. It was the entire manual in PDF. I am in the process of consolidating all my old disks into CD. I'll run across it, or someone else will find it before me.

This will probably help you guys out. I used a Linux running LIRC to control my 6pg extra with a IR equipped latop:

Yeah, there's IR. Even though you did not ask that question, Darvin, maybe this is the best solution.

Genocide,


Can you clarify what LIRC is? I looked for a program that was "Pronto Like" that would let me use my laptop to send IR commands using the IR port, but I couldn't find one. Is that what you are talking about here? Details would be greatly appreciated.



As for using the OPTION terminal, the software control works well, but I would be surprised if you could get that port to work very easily without the software. It's a two-way system with hand shakes, etc. Of course if you are able to watch the port you could probably decipher the commands and create your own little app to do it, but why would you want to? The software was available at http://www.snaggs.com/projector/disp...&pagetitle=NEC


The REMOTE port is used with the NEC switcher... I don't have any first hand knowledge on this.

Hi Guys


I have some information about the protocl and commands for controlling a projector / Switcher with an RS232 connection.


About 20 commands and the specs.

Problem is they are in Paper form.


I could possibly fax or scan and email or FTP somewhere?


Anyone know if this is what you are after?

Hi Tractor_Boy,


that's exactly what I'm looking for. Hope your data sheet also shows the necessary RS-232 connection cable. I have a NEC board level training manual, but it does not clearly show the connections needed.

I can program my Creston system with these codes and see if it works and report back, of course.

If you could fax or email the RS-232 data, I could make them available on my ftp server. Let me know what you think about this.

Lirc is a linux based IR emulator. You can find more info about it at www.lirc.org. If you know a little linux you can make an exact picture of the rc6051 or any other remote just about known to man. If you have a pocket pc you can also get a remote program. I cant remember the name even though i have it loaded on my Dell Axim. The pocket pc route is an EXACT pronto emulator. Right down to using prontoedit to edit and creat ccf files.
