  • Extended IR Codes

    I did find a few threads touching the Extended IR codes issue when using HouseLinc with HomeSeer, but they were all a bit old.

    I've been using my HouseLinc as an X-10 controler and now wanted to use the IR portion of it. I'm fortunate enough that all my IR devices code are part of the HouseLinc library. However I need to access some vital Ext. Codes. so my automation makes sense.

    As anyone achieved it here?

    I found some instructions on defining an unused button in the Plato interface to be an Ext. Code button that would then be available in HS, but the procedure does not seem to work in that initial interface, before even trying to access it in HS.

    The procedure seemed simple
    In plato IR config
    - Select IR device
    - Click A-B-C
    - Click 9-9-4 (two blinks)
    - Enter desired Ext. Code value
    - Click Ext. Code button
    - Click the target button (Ex.: REC in TV mode)
    No can do

    I know the HouseLinc is not very popular but if anyone can help ?
