    What IR solution are you using with HS3?

    Guys,
    Can you list what IR solution you are using with HS3 please and how well it's working for you.

    Hi Greg,

    I'm using Global Cache GC100-12's with Ultra's plugin. Works great.

    Cheers

      Been trying to determine what works best for me.

      Currently using a Global Cache iTach with the Ultra GCIR3 plugin. Working great including very smooth volume control on HS Touch. I use all three IR ports to control different Samsung TVs.

      Nice thing about the iTach is that it is IP controlled and I can use HS - Ultra GCIR3 and Roomie remote with the same iTach. I haven't seen any conflicts. The Roomie remote's ir library is very versatile.

      Still need to figure out reliable relays and GPIO, so I am also going to look at a GC iTach Flex possibly with the Relay and sensor cable.

      Kind of bummed that the BC4 plugin won't be ported to HS3. The BC4 was very versitile and reliable. I know that there is a plugin for the ir so I may need to use that as I have one ir remote the that iTach won't capture. Trying to figure it out but I think that the frequency is too high.

        I am only using two for my mr slim air conditioner - Remotec Z-Wave ZXT-120 IR Extender for Air Conditioners. It works very well once I figured out the correct code for my mr slim unit. I have two of them and they control the units in the living room and bedroom. I have them set in events to turn the air conditioner on if the temp reaches a certain point. I have different set points for day and night. I also have the event set up so if it is after 9 PM it turns the bedroom air conditioner on in quiet mode. My next move will be to add window sensors so the air conditioner only comes on if the windows are closed.

            Same here, very reliable so far.

            Also tried GC iTach Flex w/ the same plugin, but at the time it didn't work well (3rd port couldn't be changed from a blaster).

              Using GC's with the Drule IP and serial plugin. Works great (fast and reliable) also for my serial connection to Russound.

                I'm using a USB-UIRT (With BLUSBUIRT) on an extension lead, as the HS3 pc is in a different room. You can get these with two sensors to pick up different IR frequencies. It works very well with my AV equipment, but long term I would prefer a different solution to get rid of the USB cable.

                  I use the USB-UIRT plus a radio shack IR extender in order to have the UIRT control two rooms. Since the UIRT has three distinct zones I could in theory add a third room, but I can't seem to find a wireless IR extenders that don't all work on the same frequency so if I get another it won't be distinct from the first one and the IR signals will go to both rooms that have extenders set up.

                  In addition to the two rooms I have IR control in, I'd like to add two more. So I'm glad this thread was started so I can see what others are doing.

                    Anyone having success with the iTach Flex and the Ultra plug in?
                    Also any success with the Ultra plug in with the relay and sensor cable?

                      The iTach Flex - IR is fully compatible with the UltraGCIR3 HSPI. I am still waiting for Global Cache to update their TCP API to support the iTach relay and sensor cable. It was supposed to be released soon.

                        Does it support iTach Flex with 3 (regular) emitters? Last time I tried, the third port was 'stuck' in blaster mode...

                          Great, thanks. Let us know when the relay and sensor cable is supported. It will be a great option.

                              GC WF2IR with Ultra's plug-in. A great solution.
