Hi Folks,

First of all, OpenRemote is great, thank for that to all of you!

I try to control video playback computers via TCP/IP commands with OpenRemote. I would like to have a command, like Take, wich means play the selected movie, but I want it to be syncronized, so I want to send the command to all of the computers in the same time. Plus I want this program to be universal so it can handle one computer or ten.

My problem is that in the designer I can make the command with one IP address, port, and command line, and it is works well but how can I put more IP address or a range of IP addresses to this command? Is it possible? Or is there any other solution for this?

Thanks for the help guys!



Right now, on the sending side, the least effort solution would be to aggregate each IP address command as a macro, and then bind the macro to the button. So all commands are sent when the button is pressed.

However, it does require that you create a command for each IP address so depending how large the range of IP addresses is, this may or may not be feasible.

Other solutions will be a little more involved, maybe requiring some programming skills.

Thanks Juha!

Macro is maybe not an elegant solution but it will works for me, because I have not more than 10 machines with manual IP's so make 10 commands is not a big deal.

One more thing, the commands will fire at once, or it will fire in the order inside of the macro so should I count some minor delay?

Big help for me, thanks again!

Should be in order defined in the macro. So there's likely a small delay. You can define additional delays yourself if necessary. I can't recall if there's a 'default' delay between macro commands, I think there shouldn't be but let us know how it works for you.

milli, or nanoseconds are not an issue, half a second would be a problem.

I will test it and write a feedback to this topic today or tomorrow.

Thank you Juha for your kindly help, I am really appreciate it.
