    Hi Aaron,

    I figured I finally should migrate from MRP and the replacement driver to eHome and IR Server Suite. Following your directions I installed eHome, changed the registry and then installed IR Server Suite, this version. All keys works fine, with one exception, I can not have it learn a single IR macro.

    I use macros to blast to the TV and audio amplifier. It seems to recognize the IR from the foreign remotes but when I blast nothing happens. The LED lblinks but the command is not recognized by the TV or amp. I tried the Debug utility and it reports some different IR sequencies, which seems to be OK. Having said that, I can not have it learn and blast any commands either...

    I've attached all logfiles I could think of. The last thing I did before zipping them was to try and learn another IR but without success. Can you take a look at the last part to see if I have done something wrong?

    Thanks

    /Peter

    Well, I'm sorry to hear that the move was unsuccessful...

    From looking at the log everything looks 100% ok... can you blast to other IR equipment and control it? Maybe your tv is very sensitive and some small change I've made has knocked it slightly out of range of what it will accept.

    I'll hook up my Pronto again and make sure that blaster output is correct for the code provided...

    I'll post back if I find anything, but can you also do a little test for me:

    Open Debug Client and learn a command from a remote control, then blast it back while pointing an IR blaster bug at the receiver (up close) ... the receiver should register the code and you should see the button code come up in debug client... let me know if that works.

    Cheers,

    STB

    My wife gave the order last night that I must re-activate the control of the STB from within MP. We have not used this for the last couple of months.

    I installed this version, but could not get the STB to change channel.
    Uninstalled and install version of 2007-10-02 - worked first time.
    Uninstalled and install version of 2007-12-18 - same problem as with current version.

    Explanation:
    TV Server Config
    tv3 blaster plugin
    stb setup
    using STB: Panasat IRD624DSTV
    test channel 202
    The blasting lights flicker, but the STB does nothing.

    The logs represent the last try (version of 2007-12-18) although the same problem exist with this current version.

    Hi Aaron,

    Here are the logs from some new tests I did per your suggestion.

    1. I used my Logitech Z-5500 remote to receive a command once, then learn the same command (4184), then blast it a couple of times. No reaction on Logitech nor Debug Client, and finally received the command again.

    2. I used my Video7 TV remote to recieve a command (1119866927), then learn the same command, then blast it a couple of times. No reaction on the Video7 but the Debug Client received another command (17104), and then finnaly reveiced the command again.

    3. I used my MCE remote RC6 to receive a command once (31713), then learn the same command, then blast it once. Now the Debug client receive the same command as when I use the remote directly.

    I've never had any issues with either remote with MRP.

    Cheers

    /Peter

    EDIT: Just a thought... Since the Power on/off (remote event "4104" and "1119866927") are the only two commands I would like it to learn, can I add them manually (instead of learning)?

    Hi Aaron

    Thanks for the new release. For me it works reliable with my MCE Remote. There are just two smaller issues.

    1) The MP-Plugins are always installed to the MP default directory. If you use a different path for MP you have to copy them manually.
    2) I mapped the TV_Power button of my MCE remote to the command"standby", but the system always goes into hibernate mode. Logs are included.

    Hi Aaron,

    Still no success with IR Server. I went back to latest version of MRP but have the same problems there, i.e. can not learn any IR commands. Have not tested all previous versions but the one I had working was from June 16th or so.

    Can I learn a command in that old MRP version and then "import" to IR Server? Then I could workaround the learning issue as a short-term solution.

    /Peter

    petsa, rekenaar, and others:

    I've now reproduced the blasting problem you're having and will hopefully have a fix within 24-hours.

    Thanks for the quick and detailed feedback. It helped a lot.

    1) The MP-Plugins are always installed to the MP default directory. If you use a different path for MP you have to copy them manually.
    2) I mapped the TV_Power button of my MCE remote to the command"standby", but the system always goes into hibernate mode. Logs are included.

    1. I need to make a change to the installer there, I'll need to find an example nsis script to do that, hopefully the next version will have this in place.

    2. Sounds like the default driver is acting on that button press. There are certain buttons that are automatically handled, that's one of them. To get around this you need to modify your registry as described in the documentation and at the last link in my signature.

    shark147:

    I'll take a look and see what I can do. Did you locate a girder plugin dll before pressing ok?

    Cheers,

    Thanks Aaron!

    I'd be happy to test it as soon as you have something for us.
