  • UltraGCIR and the GC-IRE

    From what I have learned so far, I am assuming that the UltraGCIR plugin does not support receiving IR signals from the GC-IRE when used in a serial port on the GC-100. Is that a correct assumption?

    Thanks,
    Mike

    No, the UltraGCIR HSPI does not currenty support this. However, I do have a GC-IRE on order and plan on adding support for it.

      Well, that's the second best answer you could have given, and I'll happily settle for that. I look forward to it.

      If you need beta testers, I'm game. I'm a frustrated user of the Homeseer plugins. I've also used a plugin with another automation package that works very well and is very stable, but I prefer to stay with Homeseer, if I can just get some satisfactory results with IR functions. So far, the new Ultra GCIR plugin has worked great. If you get the GC-IRE functions integrated, I'll be in heaven.

      Thanks,
      Mike

        I received the GC-IRE hardware and have it connected to my GC-100-12 on serial 1. It is sending compressed IR data, so I'll have to write a function to convert that to either the Global Cache format or HEX format. I'll also need to figure out what part of the IR data to store to ensure reliable IR matching.

          Is it sending compressed data when used with the GC iLearn.exe utility? That's how I learned the IR codes for my system for use with the UltraGCIR plugin, which seemed to work fine.

              I just got word from Ultrajones that's there's been a little delay in development, but that he hopes to get back to it soon.
