Global Cache + Apple TV (commands worked in Designer 2.x, but not 3.x)

I had a. HRP (designed under Home Remote Designer 2.x in 2018) which worked for me for years (and still works for me today with respect to my Apple TV 4K which I control using IR over a Global Cache Itach device). I have tons of IR commands which work to control my Apple TV 4K, but I can’t figure out how to do the same thing in the new HR Designer (ver.

In the new Designer, I have successfully added a Global Cache Itac, but when I try to add a device under it, it asks me for a Connector (I use 1:3), then Brand (I select Apple), then Device Type (choices: Aux, iPod, Media Manager) (I select Media Manager) then Model (choices: Apple TV and Apple TV Gen 4)(I select Apple TV Gen 4).

At no point does it allow me to add all of the IR commands that I created by hand in when using Designer 2.x.

For example, in the old Designer, I created “ATV-Cursor-Down” as a “GCVariable” with Connector Type “IR”, Connector Address “1:3” and IRCode “sendir,1:3,1,38000,1,69,347,173,22,22,22,65,22,65,22,65,22,22,22,65,22,65,22,65,22,65,22,65,22,65,22,22,22,22,22,22,22,22,22,65,22,22,22,22,22,65,22,65,22,22,22,22,22,22,22,22,22,22,22,22,22,65,22,22,22,65,22,22,22,65,22,22,22,1570,347,87,22,3692”

I did that for down, enter, left, right, up, forward, forward x10, menu-home, menu-main, play/pause toggle, reverse and stop. They all worked in my old Designer 2.x .HRP.

Now I have no clue how to replicate the same functionality to control my Apple TV 4K using Designer 3.x.

The Designer now has built in support automatically generating the IR commands. When you added your Apple TV Gen 4 device, it connected to the Global Cache Control Tower IR DB to download those IR commands. You no longer need to download them yourself. This process has been simplified. The commands are placed into the CodeSets collection on the Global Cache source. You can manually edit those IR commands if you wish (see screenshot below). Those commands are sent through the MediaCommand attribute on the Device. So to send a DirectionDown command, simply write DirectionDown to the MediaCommand attribute.
