I have a simple a/v system consisting of a Roku, Onkyo TX-NR818 and an Epson Home Cinema 3020 projector. I control the Roku directly with IP controls (I have my router assign it a static IP via MAC address), and I control the projector and receiver with a GC-100 via RS-232.
I’m transitioning from iRule, and have several remotes already set up to control this system via iRule. I would like to keep them functioning as I transition my other setups one-by-one. I have a couple of questions:
Is there a repository of commands for the GC-100, along with the other devices in my system? (RS-232 for receiver and projector, and IP for Roku)
My Onkyo receiver is wifi capable with an add-on module, but I prefer wired connections where possible. I saw in a post on here that the GC-100 isn’t recommended, but mine has worked flawlessly with iRule. My receiver has an ethernet port, but I don’t know if it can receive commands through this port or not (does anyone know if this is possible? For some reason I had it in my mind that it’s only for firmware updates but I could definitely be wrong). Should I ditch the GC-100 and connect to it directly through my network? I’m fine with that if I can control it through the ethernet connection (if possible).
