Repeating on a button does only work when 1 Infrared Action (not more) is configured and trigger is set to timing. Is this enough for you as soluition? What do you want exactly execute in this case?

kind regards,
Urs
Hello,

Thank you for your reply!

Can this be done for a TCP Gateway or a HTTP Gateway target as well?

If not, I will just have to continue to use EventGhost?

I was able to accomplish repeating Actions for my IR Target (Broadlink) using the timing Trigger.

However, I seem to be getting a UDP Error randomly from time to time when sending Actions to my Broadlink device so, the communication is sketchy.

Log Level: ERROR
Log Category: Gateway Communication
Message: UDP Error on Gateway broadlink-01:SocketTimeoutException

Then I get another error...

Log Level: ERROR
Log Category: Network
Message: Error while sending HTTP request java.io.FileNotFoundException: http://192.168.10.141:8008/ssdp/notfound

Is there any way to rectify this? It appears that when I get these errors, my commands stop working for a period of time but, eventually start working again.

Same errors yielded on both Android and iOS. Used different Wireless bands and Access points as well.

Note: No issues when using the Official Broadlink app.

Thanks,

Lamar

Multiple inquries/requests

Hello,

I've been using IRControl for sometime now and I almost have it configured they way I'd like.

The first thing I will mention is a couple of issues that I am having:

After my phone wakes up from sleep, my configured actions no longer work through the TCP Gateway that I have setup. I have to "Restart IR Control System?" in order for the actions to work again after the phone wakes.

My phone is set to stay connected to WiFi while the device sleeps so, I'm uncertain as to what problem is? Also, I have no issues with with TCP communication on my phone after it wakes from sleep when using a few other programs that I have tested just to be sure it was something strange going on with my network.

Note: This happens in IRControl on BOTH Android AND iOS. Multiple Android devices and iOS devices have been tested with the same result

Can you provide some assistance with that please?

Also, I have a Web View implemented and everytime I go to another page within IRControl and come back to the page with the Web View, it refreshes. Now, this may be by design but, I have a Logitech Media Server web UI embedded and when I navigate and go deeper into the content structures then switch to another page within IRControl and then come back to the Web View page, all my progress is reset and I'm back at home.

Is this something that could be prevented by a setting or option?

Next, I see that the latest update for IRControl states "Actions can be configured for the device volume buttons." However, I can't find anywhere within the program where this can be accomplished? I checked the manual and couldn't find anything listed there on that either.

Could you please advise on how to bind actions to the volume buttons?

Next, are a few feature requests.

1. Please add a Navigation Pad "Double Tap" gesture. Would multi-touch be possible as well (i.e. two finger gestures?)
2. Please add an option to repeat actions by holding a button down.
3. Please add a "Edit page Fragments" option within the Setup menu to allow ALL Fragments on a current page to be edited quickly without having to perform the lengthy 6 step process below each time you want to edit something...

Swipe to access the menu or tap the setup button >> Setup IRControl >> Pages >> Select the desired page >> Select the desired Fragment >> Select the edit icon.

Instead, you can just swipe to access the menu or tap the setup button >> Edit page Fragments.

Thank you for your assistance and consideration!

Re: EventGhost TCP/UDP connection

Thank you for looking into this!

FYI, I was able to receive input within EventGhost from the IRControl App UDP Gateway Connection by utilizing the Broadcaster EventGhost plugin.

However, the inputs received within EventGhost are slow and has a significant delay. So, it's really not usable but, at least the input is being received.

Also, I was able to receive input to EventGhost using an event server from the XBMC2 plugin and the IRControl App TCP Gateway Connection as well but, the latency was present there too.

I've attempted multiple Android devices with the same result. I send other events to my EventGhost server from other apps with no delay so, it seems like it could be how they are being sent from the IRControl app.

I checked the Log Entry Detail within the IRControl app and it appears to be yielding errors on every event even though the input is received within EventGhost. There are 2 errors as follows:

Log Level ERROR
Log Category: Gateway Communication
Message: Device udp-01 connected to udp-01
(not accessible)

Error when sending an action:

Log Level: ERROR
Log Category: Gateway Communication
Message: UDP Error on Gateway udp-01:
SocketTimeoutException

So, I don't know what is causing the errors and could be related to the latency. Again, although the errors are present, the action does reach EventGhost but with major latency.

If you need more information to help your investigation, please let me know as I would love to get this working properly?


But we will think about to provide the possibility to have a 2nd bitmap for the pressed state. Technical it is not a problem to integrate this. It is more the question how to integrate this, because acutally we think a lot about to make the configuration easier and more user friendly.
If you can look into this, it would be greatly appreciated. This feature would be a game changer for me as your app has almost everything on my checklist.

Thank you for your consideration.

EventGhost TCP/UDP connection

Hello,

I just downloaded the IRControl app and am looking to connect it to my EventGhost server.

Do you have a EventGhost plugin available?

I installed the Network Event Receiver EventGhost plugin and setup a TCP Gateway within the IRControl app but, no input was being received within EventGhost. Also, I attempted the UDP Gateway and that didn't work as well.

I'm sure I'm not configuring it properly so, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I wanted to make a feature request. Could you add a pressed state option for image buttons please?

I would like to be able to define an image when a button is pressed instead of just having a static button that yields a brief animation when pressed.

Thank you.
