USB-Uirt and scenarios
« on: November 11, 2007, 08:40:19 pm »
Ok, so I just received mine on Friday.  I have been trying to get it to work properly since then. Maybe someone here can answer a couple of questions for me.

1. How do you set up scenarios? Its really confusing with all the random commands in the scenario page. Do i need to create a cheat sheet and learn every single one? Is there an easier way to tell it what to turn on and off? Currently, nothing works right except the volume.  :(

2. Why would my usb-uirt send the right code once, then stop working after that?

3. this is related to the scenarios again. is there an explicit way to tell it what to do and when?

 Believe when I say i have been pouring over the wiki, but the info there is really just not complete. hopefully someone here can explain to me how to get this working properly.

I assume that your usb-uirt is working for 'normal' IR remote control functions?

To the best of my recollection, I have said no such thing. :-X  Must have been someone else, as I haven't even gotten around to messing with IR yet myself.  :-\

You are correct sir. My issues are the firing of the ir commands. I did get things worked out by solely using my receiver, but im still curious as to how linuxMCE decides what commands to send and where. Im very confused as to why a code would work once, then stop. i even looked into the timing and other stuff but no dice. maybe i crossed the wrong code somewhere? I also have a gyro mouse. Could that be causing a problem?

btw. im working with:

recently purchased usb-irt
xp MCE remote


thanks for any ideas
