  • Same codes for multiple GC IR devices

    Just started working with the plugin and before I get to far, I want to make sure I'm not missing something.

    I have applied each output of the GC100 to a room where there is a xantech ir distribution to multiple devices in each room. So each room, has a directv receiver, meaning each output on the GC100 which corresponds to an IR device in the plugin.

    I am using the hex codes for the directv remote buttons and manually entering them into the IR device in the plugin after converting them with the GC iconvert program.

    PROBLEM: Once I enter all the directv buttons for one GC plugin device, do I have to re-enter them for another GC plugin device if I want to control another directv receiver in a different room which is associated with a different GC device? So if I have five directv receivers do I have to enter all the directv buttons (codes) 5 different times? Once for each zone (GC IR device).

    Is there a central repository for codes and then you assign them to GC IR devices, or and easy way to copy codes between devices?

    Thanks (sorry for the length)

    This is where the import function comes into play. This is a sample of what the input file should look like:

            This is great, should make it easy for a lot of people to post their codes.
