Link uirt descrete code to custom command

Hi All,

I would like to be able to use the custom commands in sage to send a signal to my stb(uk sky) via usb uirt for stb specific commands.

This would enable me to have more control of my stb from an mvp

Or if a stvi could be developed which displayed an onscreen remote which could be customised to send extra commands to the uirt.

Anyone know if this would this be possible?

It is technically possible -- there is a Studio function called
TransmitCommandUsingInfraredTuningPlugin which can send any programmed IR command.

You would need to either program this into a custom screen in Studio, or you create menu items for my dynamic menu plugin that call this function to send these commands. The following is a template pasteable menu item. Its up to you to figure out the right arguments

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="no"?>
<sageMenu version="1.4">
    <internalScreenMenuItem screen="Null Menu Action (does nothing)" title="Send IR Command">
