Has anyone used the IR out Port on the DXLINK-HDMI Rx boxes?
I need to control some tvs ON/OFF and have lots issues.
Using IrEdit, I can pulse the IR port 27 and 28 and the tv responds correctly about 95% of the time. I have adjusted the pulse times but I can not get 100% accuracy.
Using the PULSE in code causes the IR port to stick on and requires a power cycle of the DXLink box to turn off.
I have used 'SP' send_command with limited success. I have also set the PTON and PTOF times to various values with limited success as well. It seems the boxes need to be power cycled before the PTON commands take.
I have 3 tvs that worked fine with the old IRS4 cards but now that we have swapped out to use the DXLINK-HDMI device, these 3 tvs refuse to cooperate 100% of the time.

    I have used IR out on a ton of DXLink boxes and have not seen any of the issues you mentioned.
    Both all keywords pulse, SP, to, min_to work as expected.

    Take a look at network configuration or change the connection mode to URL for the DXlink boxes in question.

    On a similar note, has anyone been able to use the IR port on a DXLINK box as one-way serial? I attempted for just a few minutes at the end of a project a few weeks ago, but could not make it work.

    I've used the IR port as one way serial with no issues. You do need to make sure that the dip switches are set (1 + 3 ON) and that the DXLink box is connected to the applicable master correctly.
