Re: ALM Family Theater automation using iRule

I do not see any"wheels that are any color. Do I need to have some equipment hooked up to be able to see this. At this point I'm just getting the walls finished up so that I can place my equipment. So I have no communication with it. I did get the get the IP address installed for the gateway.

Do you have any information on connecting the Insteon PLM and ISY to the system. I'm just trying to get everything setup and ready so that when I can place equipment I will be ready to go.

Thanks again,

Yes, you would need some equipment hooked up as I am pretty sure the "wheel" shows a specific color after the communication takes place between them.

As far as the Insteon and the ISY, I won't be able to be much help there unfortunately...

Re: ALM Family Theater automation using iRule

I have the gateway address on the IRule GC-100 Gateway but I really don't know if it is doing anything. I tried to load a device but it said "no gateway"

Re: ALM Family Theater automation using iRule

Not sure how yours works, but I had to go into my router settings and set a static address for the GC-100 because it kept on switching the address.

Re: ALM Family Theater automation using iRule

Great thread. Been thinking of using iRule for my Theater room instead of saving up the 1500 that a company wants to install a Crestron setup.

Any luck with this yet?

The cost outlay is not bad at all. Plus, I had a chance to chat with Steven Crabb, and he said they have just recently added a "wizard" interface that makes it much easier to build screens which can then be customized. I watched him use it and build a screen in less than 5 minutes.

Re: ALM Family Theater automation using iRule

Still having issues with it. Hooked upmy Denon AVR unit and tried with the IR sensor and counldn't see the device then I had a Male to male 3.5mm plug. Tried it and it still comes up no gateway seen. Might just have to wait until all my equipment is in place. I feel that I'm getting closer but really frustrated because it shouldn't be the rough. Copied the little bit of manual that I could find so that I can read up on it.

If the Denon is like mine, you need to set up the gateway under the Network gateway, not the GC-100.

Re: ALM Family Theater automation using iRule

Then you can proceed to get it to the IRule within the Network Gateway?

Yes, you need to set up the IP address for the Denon once you create it under "Network". For the Denon, I also copied down the MAC address and made a static ip for it in my route settings to alleviate the disconnect issue I would sometimes see with my GC-100.
