  • HS3 initial setup

    I just installed the HS3 version trying to get this one to work better than Homeseers plugin.

    As an FYI, this is my first attempt at using a global cache product.

    I tried following the help but it is for the HS2 version.

    What I have done so far:

    Enabled the plugin, went to options and added the IP address of the Global Itach IP2IR device I have. I didn't do this at first because I thought this plugin automatically discovered the device.

    Then the plugin wanted me to restart Homeseer which I did. I try to go to any of the tabs and I do not see the device listed. All dropdowns are blank.

    I have iHelp running and it shows the device on my network.

    Am I doing something obviously incorrect? Do I need to add IR commands to the device before the plugin discovers it? I have not added any IR commands as of yet.

    The help file for UltraGCIR3 is available on the HS3 help page. Go to Tools - Help.

    Cheers

        I still can't get this plugin to recognize the device.

        I went back to Homeseers plugin and it found the device and was able to "learn" DirecTV's power button and was able to deploy it through the test button so I know the device is working.

        I noticed the LG TV commands were posted on another thread since that is the TV I have but have not had any luck getting those "learned".

        Without the device being seen by this plugin I can't import those commands either.

        Any help would be appreciated.

          A few things to check:
          • Make sure the other HomeSeer plug-ins and any Global Cache programs are not running. If running, they my prevent my plug-in from listening on the UDP multi-cast group.
          • Confirm you installed the UltraGCIR3 plug-in from the system running HomeSeer. You should have seen a Windows firewall prompt asking if you authorize the UltraGCIR3 plug-in to listen for incoming packets.

            I can confirm I did get the windows firewall prompt and I selected Allow.

            I did have Homeseer's plugin enabled as well as yours. I disabled theirs, removed the IP from the Options Page, and restarted Homeseer.

            That seemed to have worked Seems I have tried all this before but didn't work oh well, it works now.

            Now I will start the IR assigning and see if I have any other questions.

            Thank you.

                Is this plugin supported for linux?

                I just got a HomeTroller-SEL running HS3 Standard Edition 3.0.0.143 (Linux). I don't see the UltraGCIR in the list of available plugins. Is this only available for HS3 for windows?

                  No, it's not working with Linux yet. I'll modify the plug-in to support Linux soon.

                    Hi Ultrajones

                    any estimation for hs3 linux UltraGCIR support ?

                    i really like to move to work with a linux machine to be the control center.

                    Thanks
