IRA-3 support
#1
I am about to order this IR receiver and want to make sure it is supported still.

It was the Ira 2 that is supported, because it effectively looked just like an IRMan device which is also supported.

Their support says it still operates like an ir man so I'm going to go for it.

I have 3 IRA-3s working just fine. FYI, when you get it working you will see the red LED is always on, kind of annoying. They have a little program you can download to change the config, including the LED. The LED is nice because it tells you it's working but once I know it works I turn it off.

Good to know. Can I have more than one of these attached to the master server?

I have 3 and plan on more (one for each TV). Just add driver for each one and have an open RS 232 port for each.

I got this in the mail last night and tested it with a single command, it worked like a charm. I know some people are using ir codes for devices they don't actually have. I am wondering if people have found that one type of device works better than another.

ok, so I got mine, hooked one up... the driver just gets stuck on "wait for connect" so what is the secret to make it actually connect?
I tried both the IRA2 and the IRMAN drivers...

also tried just looking at it with a serial port... I guess it doesn't send back ascii?

You will need to use a full 9 connector cable, not the three cable variety. And make sure it's the correct straight through/null modem type.

I just got the cable they sell with them... figured it would be easier...

anyway, took the cable and IRA3 to work, plugged it into an old PC I have there that actually has a serial port, used their comfind program and it showed right up....
(why doesn't my desktop have a serial port??? where did it go?)

so that just leaves either the com port on my server, or some weird windows 7 issue... but since its just serial, I doubt windows could muck it up too bad?
