I’ve added the GC-100 from searching for it as a Thing, I have tried to send a simple IR command to a receiver on 5:3 (fifth connector, third IR port )

I’ve tested the command through iTest from GlobalCache and it works and blinks the light on the back of the GC-100. But when I try the command in OH2 it doesn’t seem to work as it doesn’t blink the light to confirm the command was sent.

I tried an auto config, then I created a Widget in HABPanel then gave it the initial command. I tried two commands:

For Power On:

First Command Tried:
sendir,5:3,1,38000,1,1,218,111,72,217,72,72,72,772

Second Command Tried:
38000,1,1,218,111,72,217,72,72,72,772

Can you post the contents of your transform/globalcacheir.map file?

The map file should contain something similar to this.

SONYTV_POWER_ON         = 40000,2,1,96,24,24,24,48,24,48,24,48,24,24,24,48,24,24,24,48,24,24,24,24,24,24,24,24,1014
SONYTV_POWER_OFF        = 40000,2,1,96,24,48,24,48,24,48,24,48,24,24,24,48,24,24,24,48,24,24,24,24,24,24,24,24,990

The item should look sometyhing like this (modified for the gc100 module/connector).

String Kitchen_TV   "Kitchen TV"   { channel="globalcache:itachIR:000C1E0391E5:ir-m1#c1" }

And the HABpanel should look something like this.

Hey Thanks for the quick response mhilbush

I will try that

btw, I got it to toggle the power through a “switch widget” I didn’t have to enter the command with this but at least I know it sent a command and I am closer to getting to know how to send all the commands!! :slight_smile: I think I only have about less than 10 commands to send…

It worked, thanks!!

Mark, are you just a user of OpenHAB or one of the contributors of OpenHAB or ???

I really appreciate the support, I love this project I would like to do something to contribute back.

Thanks again. The little bit of help you gave me allowed me to get to the next step, so I am making more progress on my own now.

Yes and yes. :slight_smile:

I’ve contributed a couple bindings (GlobalCache, BigAssFan), working on a couple more (SharpTV, SunsetWx), log issues when I find problems, and help out here on the forum.
