  • Setting length of IR output

    Just got 2-GC100 units and got them both registered in HomeSeer last night. Started learning IR using iLearn and I can control my receiver on/off/source just fine.

    My question is this:

    Is there any way to control the length of time that the IR command is sent? I have a Yamaha receiver and the volume requires a lengthy press to make any real changes. The IR code learned required me to repeat the IR multiple times to make any noticable changes to the volume.

    Should I try to learn the IR while holding the volume button? It seems to produce a different IR in iLearn but I haven't tried that.

    I tried changing the timing to 100 on the IR code but that doesn't seem to help much.

    Thanks in advance.

    There is a count paramater that tell the GC device to the IR command is sent count times. I would start with a count of 2 and increase it until it works as expected. If you are using HSTouch, you can use a higher count value on the initial press, then use a stopir when the botton is released.

    PHP Code:
    Example show a count of 8:

    Plug-ins: UltraMon, UltraM1G, UltraCID, Ultra1Wire, UltraLog, UltraWeatherBug, UltraPioneerAVR, UltraGCIR

      Hmmm... I've tried that but it looks like 100 is the highest value I can enter there.

      sendir,$MODULE,1,38000,100,1,340,170,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,64 ,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,21,22,21 ,22,21,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,21,22,64,22,64,22,21,22,21,22,21 ,22,21,22,21,22,64,22,21,22,21,22,64,22,64,22,64,22,1444,340 ,85,22,3620,340,84,22,760

      If I enter anything higher, it doesn't seem to change the length.

      I have created an event that repeats the IR send 3 times and that gets me close so I'll just stick to that. I have one event that is the single press, one event that runs that single press 3 times and another event that runs the triple event twice (i.e. 6 runs of the single).
