Direct HTTP (Remote Control)

Hello everyone,

Im sure someone has encountered this problem and hopefully fixed this.

Using an iPad to control Homeseer. And using IRTrans to control my Infrared
devices (TV, setup box, htpc, receiver etc).

Now i've created some screens with remote controls.

I created a screen for my XBMC HTPC.
The buttons are set up using: Homeseer: Run a Homeseer script...
I use: &hs.sendIR "TV,ON"

This works fine.
However, when i try the Up,Down,Left,Right arrow and volume, and press them a few times to navigate...it lags. Like in unworkable.
Some button press do come through, others don't register at all.

I've read some threads that by bypassing Homeseer and using IRTrans directly would greatly improve the performance.

So i've loaded my leared IR commands from homeseer in the IRDB of my IRTrans module. When i connect to my IRTrans module like:
http://192.168.0.xx/send.htm?remote=...nals&command=0

This works fine in my direct browser.

Anyone know how i can put this direct link under a HSTouch button?

I found this thread

but in essence, this doesn't bypass the homeseer server and i doubt it will get me the desired effect.

Kind Regards,
Michiel

Michiel,
All HSTouch commands are handled by the HS server. I'll repeat that. All!

Now, that having been said, you can "cheat" with a carefully crafted RSS feed with links to within the RSS feed. Here's the way it _might_ work...

Create an RSS feed with some text and some links, maybe something like this:

IR Commands : http://:/My_IRtrans_control.asp

In the MY_IRtrans_control.asp, create an html file with buttons with actions to activate the URLs you want to have actions.

Run this from HS to debug the html for the actions. Format it to fit your HSTouch screen, but you can scroll around if you don't format it at all.

Now, in your HSTouch client, add an RSS feed to a screen, and make sure the configured RSS feed detail shows the link "as a link". Deploy/test. Open the RSS feed, select the link to your html control.

I _think_ this works like you expect. The tough part for me is crafting the RSS feed.
