Greetings,

Has anyone had any luck controlling RCA DirecTV receivers serially? I have come across a fwe web sites with protocol, but they seem to offer conflicting information.

I am looking for any protocol information that anyone may have.

Thanks!!

    I have written a module for a RCA DSS receiver. It is not in the AMX standard format, but it does work. I've included the source and documentation files so you can either use it as-is or can cut and paste whatever you need from it. The documentation assumes that you are using the NXI master with the phoenix connectors. I do have this code running on 14 different systems so it has been tested and works.
