Inside irule builder under the devices tab you should be able to right click on the "global cache codes" tree branch and select "add device code". You can then give it a name (eg power off) then enter your data code in the data field. For my soundbar the power off data code is \x02\x30\x37\x38\x37\x46\x03

then drag the action onto your UI as per normal. Sync and test it out.

One of the data codes that I want to use is 111000100000. Do I just enter them like that? The sheet also has the Hex code and Parity. Do I need to anything with them?:rubeyes:

PS3 IR Remote control
For anyone that wants’ to remotely control a PS3, the Schmartz PSIR-1000 has been the 'go to' device as it’s the only one that can turn the PS3 ‘on’. As far as I know there is no way to control a PS3 via IP

Unfortunately Schmartz has gone out of business. You may still be able to find a PSIR-1000 but it may not be easy.
I was able to pick one up at a Canada Computers store in Waterloo ON.
Canada Computers have them listed on their web site but it’s ‘in store only’. http://www.canadacomputers.com
They are listed as ‘out of stock’ at Amazon.com
The documentation, the utility you need, and the Pronto Codes are still available on the Schmartz web site. If you find one and you can’t locate the files, shoot me an email. I have them all.
Note that if you already have a BD Playstation controller, it's 'one or the other'. As soon as you 'link' the PSIR, the Sony unit is AWOL.

Cheers, Ernie

I just downloaded the trial version and it doesn't like my username or password. :( Hopefully tomorrow I can get that figured out. How hard is it to control via serial and ip devices, Denon 4520, ISY994i, Panason ic AE8000, and software like XBMS, JRiver?

Reading through this thread and watching it! I really like iRule so far from what I have been reading.

OP,

Any updates on your progress? Any issues you have over the past few months?

I apologize ahead of time if this is the inappropriate thread for this, but, I've been using iRule (Android) for a while now, and I enjoy going in and tweaking the settings or trying to figure out the different protocols for devices.

However, from a hardware standpoint, I'm getting reeeaaal tired of waiting for my handset to re-connect to my devices (gateways) every time the handset "sleeps." I'm using the Nextbook 10SE as my handset, and am running the usual type devices (Sharp LED tv, Pioneer SC-37 receiver, DirecTV, Oppo 103, PS3). I know one of the recent iterations of iRule for Android (I think 2.0.5) was supposed to address this issue, but I haven't had any success with it. My handset is currently running version 4.0.2. Unfortunately, I haven't received much help from the iRule folks/forums on it either.

Has anyone had similar experiences and maybe found a "fix" for it? It could be my handset, router, settings, or a whole slew of other items I have totally missed, so any suggestions are appreciated. At any rate, thanks for any replies. --Mario

Waaay behind here Ron - it is actually pretty standard stuff for irule. I currently control a Denon 4520, Panasonic 7000, OPPO 93, Lutron Grafik Eye, and my directv box. I just recently finished my music server using JRiver and I control that using Webgizmo which I can connect with through iRule.

Again, apologies for the late reply. The only issue I had recently was my GC-100 tanking on me - I had it replaced and was back up and running in pretty short order. I finished up the music server and added the screen to control that using Webgizmo - works pretty well. I have to get zone 2 set up and working yet, but I think that should go pretty smoothly as it should be similar to the music server screen.

Mario,

I unfortunately won't be much help there - I use an iPad for mine and don't seem to have reconnection issues at all. Sorry... :-(

Finally have my isy994i setup. Are you using the Mobilinc software on the iPad/iPhone or just iRule with the Mobilinc pc programming? I was thinking that I wouldn't need to buy the Mobilinc iPhone app if I'm buying iRule to be the remote software.

Thanks Joe. I guess I am ultimately looking for a handset that is stable, so you may have been more help than you think. I most likely will start shopping for an iPad because I think my Android device may be the problem. Thanks again. --Mario

Any tips on how to get the gc 100 on my network as a gateway? I have it plugged in by ethernet but my network isn't seeing it. I read I need to connect to it at 192.168.1.70 but I can't get that to work, or I don't know what I'm doing. Any help?

Ok I'm connected to the gc 100 by changing my pc ip and connected directly to the gc100. Now what? My pc ip is 107.15.x.x and subnet is 255.255.x.x. Do I set the gc to those same values?

Wraunch - If your router's gateway IP is anything other than 192.168.1.x, which it seems your router's is, then you do exactly what you have done -- manually change your PC's IP to 192.168.1.x, connect it directly to the GC100, log in to the GC100 at 192.168.1.70. Once you're in the user interface for the GC100, you should be able to change the IP to the IP you need for your LAN (ie the 107.15.y.x changing the y variable on the GC100 to the y variable of your LAN).

Remember that once you've manually changed the IP on the GC100, it will lose it's connection to your PC, but you can reconnect to the GC100 once you've changed your PC IP back to the 107.15.x.x with a direct connection, or through your router, switch or however you have your LAN set-up. Hope this helps. Thanks. --Mario
