Re: Samsung TV Commands

I agree, what I ended up doing was running the emitter along the silver base and then aiming it up to the IR port. You can't see the emitter and it works like a charm. I had it stuck originally, but it kept falling off. I have never used the RS232, thought about it, I just haven't done it. Mainly b...

I have been using the IR commands from the GC database with no issues what so ever. ... Using a Samsung MU9000
Thanks! Good to know. IR is now my 'C' plan as I'm looking into going RS232 for mu MU8000. I just hate the sticky emitters and a blaster in my case won't do the job.

Commands for Samsung TV's. They've worked on most of the TV I've used them on.
Given IP is such a nightmare on Samsung 2015+ TV's, I'm setting up plan 'B': IR.

Has anyone tested this set of IR codes against a 2017 Samsung TV set?

P.S. I haven't received my Samsung yet, but trying to prepare.

Samsung IP control protocol

From what I've read in researching IP codes for a Samsung 2017 TV (UN82MU8000), Samsung's Smart Hub (Tizen-OS) uses Websockets. You can find Python based drivers on GitHub that apparently work in speaking IP with those Samsung TVs. I'm wondering if DemoPad has looked into supporting this protocol? T...

Re: Feedback via IR or RS232

Please forgive as I am very new to this part of the home automation. So I would need to send a "getstate" command, which would then send back what the current state of that particular command is, not so much what the state of the device is in. Correct? Just a note: those Global Caché commands and f...

Re: Feedback via IR or RS232

Hello, Is it possible to get feedback via IR or is this something that is regulated via a RS232 connection? I am looking to add something for the volume/guage so I can see what the actual volume is currently on etc. Is this possible? I am using a VSX-03THX receiver that doesn't have an IP port. :cr...

Re: Sending Commands - Need Help

Not sure what VSX you have, but Pioneer (and now under Onkyo) has for a while supported IP commands, if of course your VSX is Ethernet connected. IP is so much more robust and, at least in the case of Pioneer, offers 2-way feedback which increases control of that device. Getting rid of those sticky ...

Re: Processing of hex values returned in 2-way feedback

"It's alive, it's alive" ;) Thanks for the response. May DemoPad keep growing in 2018 (and not lose site of their users). I'm a bit perplexed though on "not routinely monitored by DemoPad". I can certainly channel a feature request directly to DemoPad support, but would that process not take away fr...

Re: Processing of hex values returned in 2-way feedback

Hello DemoPad,

It would be great if my feature request was addressed.

It would also be great if we (I) knew what was up with DemoPad as a company. Last post from DemoPad November 14th, latest news Feb. 2017, very little chat on the forums. Rumors will start...

Pioneer AVR post 2016 cmds & feedback

The attachment is actually my entire .pad in a Zip. Apologies since there is much non relevant stuff relative to the subject title. What you can review: Commands for Pioneer AVR's 2016+ (VSX-932 for me), which have adopted the Onkyo IP control protocol; for anyone still looking for the complete comm...

Processing of hex values returned in 2-way feedback

Just to recap... Post 2016 Pioneer AVR's have adopted the Onkyo protocol. For volume control and feedback, this protocol uses a two byte value with an ASCII representation of a hex value. For example, the VSX-932 has a volume range of 00 to C8, equivalent to 0 to 200 in decimal. Except that 'C8' is...

Re: Philips Hue Feedback

Just a hunch but have you tried to debug with Hercules or whatever to visualize what the Hex terminator actually is in the Hue responses?

Just a wild guess, but that double quote, although legal AFAIK, might cause issue. You may want to replace it with a dot.

Re: Philips Hue Lights

I have the majority of my commands routed through the Centro-8M and have so far experienced no delay, but no Philips Hue Lights.

It would be interesting to track down whether it simply was the Centro-8M starting the communication late or some latency during the IP conversation.
