Dependencies

  • CMake 2.8 or Python 2 or 3

How to use

  • Executable command line interface for sending one shot ir commands
    ./itachip2ir [ip-of-itach] [itach-listening-port] [ir-commands.txt] [name-of-ir-command] [itach-mod] [itach-conn] [message-count]
    
  • Python object
    import pyitachip2ir
    import logging
    
    logging.basicConfig(level=logging.INFO) # Get log messages from pyitachip2ir
    
    mac_address = None # If known use this, it will search for the itach
    ip_address = "127.0.0.1"
    port = 4998
    itach = pyitachip2ir.ITachIP2IR(mac_address, ip_address, port)
    
    with open("tv_commands.txt",'r') as cmds:
        itach.addDevice("tv", 1, 3, cmds.read())
    
    if not itach.ready(5000): # Search for 5 seconds for device
        raise IOError("ITach not found")
    
    itach.send("tv", "ON", 1)
