Is the iRule compatible with the Tandberg 6000 MXP?

I have a Tandberg 6000 MXP VTC System that I need to control. I was able to set up the system on the Logitech Universal hub, but the Logitech system is severely limited to all the things we would like to do. Also someone in the office misunderstood the idea of not needing the original remote anymore and they threw it away. Does iRule contain codes for this system, can it learn from the codes on the Logitech hub? Also in a year, we will be replacing the VTC which is end of life to a new system. Can the system learn the IR codes?

Thanks

  • Searching irules library comes up with.



    You can also search the global cache database for codes more specific to your model.

    https://irdb.globalcache.com/

    Note you will need a global cache itach to interface with irule to send codes to your 6000 mxp. The itach can also learn codes from a remote. Be forewarned that learning codes from the itach can be difficult. it is very buggy and may take several tries to capture a code that works. Irule cant learn codes on its own.

    It looks like there are at least 3 possible ways to interface the Tandberg 6000 MXP. It has a web server, so you could just embed that on an iRule page with the Url Widget.

    You could also connect with RS-232, probably using a Global Cache IP2SL or equivalent.

    You could also use Network, or telnet, which would only require an RJ45 network cable connection.

    For the RS-232 or Network connection, you would need the Tandberg protocol documentation. Usually they use the same commands for Network and Serial. For these 2 methods, you would need to build your own Device and enter your own commands, but this is not as hard as it sounds. I can help you get started if you can get the protocol.

    So, I guess the answer is it can probably be done, but there will be some work to be done.
