Could iRule and MainLobby be used Simultaneously?

Postby MurrayW » Tue Mar 30, 2010 12:26 pm

I have tried to create scenes for my iphone, but have not been very successful. Having to write code for the web pages has not worked very well for me. With all the other things that Dave is working on, I fear that it will be a long time before an iphone/itouch control that is easy to configure will be available through MainLobby.

So that brings me to looking at alternatives and I have been watching the iRule thread on the AVS forum closely.

Would I be able to use the iRule on my iphone/itouch and MainLobby on my touch screen and remote (using USB-UIRT) simultaneously? Or would there be problems with the USB-UIRT or other serial devices trying to be controlled by the iRule and MainLobby at the same time?

thanks,
Murray

Murray,

The name doesn't come to mind, but I know there are 3rd party apps that allow you to duplicate ports and share devices between two apps. I think they run about $70-100.

This would allow MainLobby and another app to communicate to a serial device.

Thanks...I found a few. Now to find out which one is the best one to use. I know you can't give exact dates, but any rough ideas (maybe on a quarter basis) when cinemar will offer a better way to control things using iphones/itouches other than teh current method of having to write code into web pages? I'd rather give you guys my money and keep everything under one system than to split it out and have two different systems to setup and maintain.

thanks,
Murray
