USB-UIRT + Dish Remote = Many Codes For One Button Push?

Post by RandomEGUser » Sun Jun 20, 2010 1:05 am

I'm having trouble setting up eventghost and USB-UIRT with my dish network remote.
Each button seems to have about 15+ codes (single press and tons of hold codes),
and theres no multiple copy/paste function in EG, so I have to drag and drop each
single code to make sure the one button works when pushed.

There must be an easier way to do this?

for example, if I press then hold one button, these come out:

Code: Select all

Any help is appreciated.

Re: USB-UIRT + Dish Remote = Many Codes For One Button Push?

Post by RandomEGUser » Sun Jun 20, 2010 5:30 pm

A little more information:

I'm using a dish network 5.3 IR remote, the codes seem to change depending on the angle of the remote as well, so I might have 25 codes at one angle, then another different set of codes at another. Is there a way to wildcard parts of an event in eventghost, so any code starting with, for example, USB_UIRT.Unknown.7577FFFF will trigger, regardless of the numbers after?

EG has built in decoders for different types of remotes, which allow it to convert the IR on/off pulse durations into codes. It looks like that remote doesn't have a decoder, so EG defaults to the unknown, with a hex code that represents the timings. If this data went through a decoder, it would have anything in given on/off ranges (500 to 900 microseconds, for example) would be allowed, but without the decoder, the variations in duration will all change the final unknown event.

There really isn't a good solution without a decoder since you are getting such variability. Can you use a different remote?

Well that sucks, considering how widespread this remote is. This remote controls nearly everything else (and its a great layout) so I really need to keep using it. Is there a specific VCR / AUX code that works well for EG that I could program into my dish remote?

I'm running through the codes to see which one allows me to use the most buttons on the remote and that EG can decode. If anyone can provide any insight, that would be quite helpful. In the meantime, I'll post results when I get them.

is there a way to wildcard parts of events? Thats all thats really needed.

something like:

USB_UIRT.Unknown.7577FFFF*

but that obviously doesn't work in EG.
