Re: ALM Family Theater automation using iRule

Thanks,
I will try this out this weekend. I have a Denon Blu Ray player. Will it be the same. I knew that I had read about the receiver on some of the Denon units needing to be on the network gateway but don't remember hearing anything about the Blu Ray

Not sure about that one - I am using an OPPO. Best way I can think of to figure it out - search through the devices to find your unit and download it. Then, open the device up to see if it uses network codes to send commands. If so, it has to go under Network.

Re: ALM Family Theater automation using iRule

You said search through the devices my unit and download it. Is this devices on the Irule Builder? I would just be more comfortable if I could find one device that worked so I could say that the IRule is seeing the GC-100. I would think that I would see the communication lights on the back of the GC-100 blink instead of staying a solid green.

Yes, those devices are accessed through the Builder. When you bring up the device list on the right, you can right click and see an entry "Add Device". That takes you to a page that will let you search a list of the available devices you can download to the builder.

Re: ALM Family Theater automation using iRule

I have not yet worked out the issues with the I Rule yet. So I have decide to get the room closer to being complete then install the equipment, get on the network then take another stab at it. I notice a lot of neat backgrounds for the I Rule I Pads. How are those created. Can you just drag in a picture for the background and use it??? Is there anywhere to go to get more detailed information?

You can - all you need to do is import the image and then you can use it as a background picture. Just make sure that you get pictures that are 1024x680 as that is the correct size for an iPad display.

I pulled several pictures from the net and used them as the backgrounds for my different screens...

I have not found a good location yet for documentation - I normally check out iRule support and then do trial and error from there.

OK, remember this is just a first run at a screen so no laughing!



One thing I have to figure out - for some reason, the gateway IP changes periodically so I have to find a new gateway and change the IP in my existing one. Definitely need to figure that one out as it is very tedious having to update it.

Is there a way to change it to the gateway IP to a STATIC IP address...? sorry Im just getting into your post and havent read ahead to see if you fixed this issue...

Re: ALM Family Theater automation using iRule

My room is finally ready for Ipad to be connected so I will probably be asking a lot of questions. Room looks great the picture the projector puts out is awsome can't wait. I'm having a wireless router issue that I'm having the provider out today to work on. Chairs should arrive this week. Need to contact Denon because the Bluray player has an IP Address but I can not find it when I look for it on the computer???? Was reading through your complete post and what good information you can find. Thanks,

Re: ALM Family Theater automation using iRule

Sounds good Mark - make sure to post up some pics in the photos forum as I am sure we all would love to see your space.

If you want, you could just create a static ip for the blu ray player. All you would need is the MAC.
