That makes 72 measurements for full 360 degree rotation. I...

    Looking for some advice on selecting not just a remote that'll control the living room HT system (6 components - TV, BDP, AVR, Cable Box, and a couple of gaming consoles - pretty simple), but will also be good for lighting and other plug-in devices around the home. Would prefer WiFi or RF...
  3. Feature Request: Automation of REW

    REW Forum
    Is there any options or possibilities for automating REW? I can be a programmer's interface (java I'd presume), script, command line, anything really.

  8. Sonar Users - X2 Prochannel Automation Bug

    Pro Audio
    I submitted a bug report for Sonar X2, having to do with automating ProChannel parameters. Bottom line, do not try to automate ProChannel parameters, you can get random changes to ProChannel parameter values on other tracks. Here is a detailed description as posted in the Sonar Forums.

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    I have not seen a whole lot of information here at HTS on the iRule app to control one's theater, so I decided to start this thread to detail my journey through it.
