Bought the GC iTach IP2IR and all of the add-ons for Roomie. I have a number of issues/questions on getting my brand new Pioneer SC-55 AV receiver to work with Roomie.
First, I must obviously have no clue which remote to choose for the SC-55 during device setup. From the remote descriptions offered in the app, I can choose 2009, or older than 2009, or the VSX series. Picking the remote configuration is by far the weakest link in your product. It is a guessing game at best and incorrect at worst.
For example, I picked “Sony TV all models” for my Sony Bravia XBR3 LCD TV and it didn’t work at all, not even power. How is that “all models?” I ended up having to read the instructions in the DDK, install Dropbox, use iLearn with the iTach, and then edit the plist file to add the code for turning my TV on and off, which still doesn’t work right for some reason. It shows up in the remote list, but doesn’t offer a “power for all activities” option. I’ll ask more about that later, I suppose.
Anyway, back to my receiver problems. My SC-55 IP receiver is detected and identified correctly (if it’s already powered on) and it is specifically listed on the compatibility page on this web site. Why isn’t the remote configuration for it listed in the app? Also, as I mentioned, it seems the app can only detect it when it’s already powered-on. Having to fish out the receiver remote to turn it on sort of defeats the purpose of having a universal remote, doesn’t it? Anyway, since it’s not a 2009 or older model, I chose VSX series for the remote and it won’t select any of the 7 HDMI inputs correctly during any of the activities. Again, I have to fish out the real remote to switch manually to the correct input.
Has anyone used the Pioneer SC-55 with Roomie? Can you give me some advice on which remote to use and what else I need to do in order for it to work right?
