Forums : Telnet & IR protocol adapters
This page last changed on Sep 27, 2013 by mditty.
I've been trying out open remote and trying to get it working with some devices controlled by Telnet and some controlled by a GC-100. Currently when entering telnet & IR commands it is a bit cumbersome. Each command requires entering IP address/port and for the GC-100 it requires I manually create the IR command which means if I ever swap it out for another device I will have to rewrite all the commands.
Are there any plans to add something I'll call a protocol adapter which can be tied to a device or globally? This could identify the IP address and device type of the command receiver, along with any defaults. Then for adding a command you can just tie the command to the protocol adapter and use the default values for most things. This would also enable easy implementation of a connection manager as the connections are tied to a single "protocol adapter". In the case of the GC-100 it would be possible to have this be an IR protocol adapter and then each command could be implemented in pronto hex and automatically converted to the right command language to have them sent to the GC-100 (I already have some Java code to do this conversion).
This was an idea I had, I'd like to try and play around with an implementation in the coming months when I get some spare time but wanted to throw the idea out there to see if anyone was looking into something like this.
