View Full Version : IRTrans tips

I've opened this thread to share tips on using and configuring IRTrans devices. The manual is not very clear and integrating them into Girder and NR can be difficult.

Here is a description of my setup:

I have three IRtrans bus devices. First one is a USB device connected to a PC, I use it for learning and controlling my home-run devices. The other two IRTrans bus devices are in two different zones, a) familyroom, b) bedroom all three are connected via a three wire cable.

Here's my first tip:

1. When setting up a Girder Action to send an IR code to a specific device, you can use its device number in the addressmask field, however you MUST use binary code representation, not decimal in the Edit Action window. For example; to address device 2, enter 0100. Here's a screen shot.-Mark W.
