Question Remote Hex codes

Hi there,

Did a search and was unable to find information. I have an EVA 9000 and I'm tryign to incoporate it into a whole house sound system (Nuvo). The installer (and NUvo - called their tech support already) does not have the hex codes for the Netgear remote IR signals and hence is unable to get the IR relaying functionality to work.

Anybody here know what the hex codes are? I think the codes for pretty much any EVA device will work.

Any assistance highly appreciated!

Carl

Good question.
The answer is that they way many of these systems work is that they actually do not just relay the IR signal. When the reciever in the wall (key pad) recieves the signal, it modulates the signal based on the IR library file that is associated for that source (Netgear). The modulated signal (not a direct IR flash) gets sent through the CAT5 cable to the main control unit (in the basement) of the Nuvo system. The system then demodulates the code and sends out the correct flash to the box in the basement using an IR emitter.
This allows the Nuvo box to actually understand the state of the connected devices (esp if they have two way IR feedback mechanisms), and since they recreate the IR signal it will be of excellent quality and works well in noisy environments (plasma, sun light etc).
BUT, in order to modulate the signal - it needs to knwo the hex codes for the IR codes recieved. Most vendors happily release these, or the community finds it out.
For Netgear - no people seem to have tried to use it as a source for a whole house Nuvo system....

Can the Nuvo use CCF files (Philips Pronot)? I have a CCF for the 8000 which should have the majority of the IR commands found on the 9150.

Well, I believe it's a different binary file, BUT if you have the Prono software, you should be able to see the hex codes in clear and copy and paste them into a post here or a document that you could send to me. That would be fantastic! Basically doing an inverse config.

Thanks in advance!

Carl

I don't have the Pronto software loaded on any of my systems anymore. But send me a PM with your email address and I'll send the CCF to you.

Done - help appreciated!

forum is NOT supported so you will not see any answer except from my.netgear.com
