I have read and read - both the doc and forums trying to solve this. My use case is very simple: I want to use the GC100 to send IR commands to my Motorola RG2200 cable box. I actually had this working under PlutoHome .44, but had so many other problems I moved to LinuxMCE. Now how to indicate which IR port on the GC100 to use eludes me
I have used the script hacks to add the GC100 - it appears to be added correctly with an automatically added child device of "Generic Relays". I then use the "Create Child Device" link on the GC100 page to create my cable box, using a Template for the RG2200 that I previously created and added the IR codes to. Of course it gets its "Controlled By" set to the GC100.
The various posts indicate that on the Device Data for the controlled device (my RG2200) one needs to indicate which IR port should be used. I have GC100 with two serial ports and six IR ports. The RG2200 is on IR port number 2. The only port related Device Data appears to be a field labelled FK_Device_Capture_Card_Port. I have tried setting it to values of 2 and 1:2 (the GC100 configuration page seems to imply the IR Ports are grouped into two sets of three ports).
Anyway nothing works - when I request confirmation it complains like so:
Message Sent succesfully.
/usr/pluto/bin/MessageSend localhost -r 0 66 1 210
RESP: Delivery failed
Device Qwest Choice TV, # 66
Device Template RG2xxx, device category Cable Boxes manufacturer Motorola.
Can someone please put some screen shots on the wiki that show configuration for a GC100 and controlled device that works successfully?
Or any other help is much appreciated.
