View Full Version : Change channels on STB using csevent

September 27th, 2015, 05:27 AM

I am new to Girder and need your help.

I have Girder 6 and a USB-UIRT.
I defined my remote in the device manager of Girder and It's working well.
I can also change channels using the NetRemote Dynamic.

How can I use csevent.exe in order to change channels on my STB?

Add a device manager action to the action tree, set that device manager action to channel up on your STB (don't forget to press APPLY). Then via csevent send an event into Girder.

csevent 1024 girder "STB_CHANNEL_UP" 18

You should now see that event appear in the Girder log.

Next drag and drop that event on top of the Device Manager action in the tree that you made a few steps ago.

Repeat the above steps for the channel down bit.

Thank you for your prompt reply.

I did what you said and it's working fine, but my goal is very simple: To send Girder the channel number so it will blast that to my STB.

What should I do?

Thank You,

Instead of CHANNEL UP make 10 actions. One of each number on the remote. Then attached events to that as above but name then something like "BUTTON_0" "BUTTON_1" etc. Then use a batch file to send 1, 2, 3 or more events in to Girder to trigger the butten presses. Alternatively set up macros in Girder that send the sequence of IR signals and attach channel names 110 -> CHANNEL_DISCOVERY or something similar.
