Driver development: Monoprice blackbird HDMI matrix

Question

Hello,

Looking to hire a programmer/dealer to develop an IR or TCP driver for the Monoprice Blackbird 4x4 HDMI switch. Also build by Lindy.

Codes are here - https://www.lindy.co.uk/downloads/1459947591Command_codes_for_LINDY_38152.pdf

Full docs and test app are here: https://www.lindy.co.uk/drivers_and_manuals/search/38152

Need it wrapped in a driver. Please send me a PM if you can assist.

Thanks

Am looking for a serial driver for Monoprice Blackbird 4K 8x8 HDBaseT Matrix with 7 Receivers as well, any one?

https://downloads.monoprice.com/files/manuals/21819_Manual_170406.pdf

Make it using driver wizard from an old version of composer pro.

Serial settings 9600 8 n 1 

“01V01.”  - switches input 1 to output 1

”01V02.”  - switches input 1 to output 2

etc.

Composer 2.9.1 use driver wizard.  Add all possible switching commands under custom codes.  IN1OUT1, IN2OUT1, IN3OUT1, etc.  When it's time to put the serial codes in, use quotes for ASCII commands like this "01V01." make sure to put a period  .  after  each command inside the quotes.  Try a couple of codes first to make sure it's working, then put in the other 62 codes.

I made a 4x2 driver with Driver Wizard fairly quickly, about 20 -30 min, but it was only 8 codes.  it might take a while with 64 codes.

I was looking for a driver for a BG-UHD-88M18G and couldn't find anything. Then I noticed that Monoprice and Zuum sell similar hardware and seem to use similar codes. Luckily Zuum provides an IP/Serial/IR driver for their Matrix which could help at least with the HDMI switching part. Not sure if it will work, but it doesn't hurt to try:

https://www.zuummedia.com/v/vspfiles/Software/zuum_hdmi_8x8.c4z.zip 

The codes are very similar to:

BG-UHD-88M18G
Monoprice 39670
Monoprice 39669

for a long time I have been looking for a Driver (especially IP) for my Matrix (Monoprice Blackbird 8x8 HDMI 4K Model: 24180) but unfortunately I always have to integrate it via IR into the system, which leads to many errors in practice (sometimes it works well other times not so much)

Also repeatedly, I have tried to download drivers for similar matrices (I was looking for similar matrices in design) and none were successful, in fact no type of driver works for me today.

In view of this post, I took on the task of verifying the info posted on the ZUUM matrix and began the search again, but this time based on the software, the RS232 commands and the IRs and I found the following:

1. http://www.zuummedia.com/product-p/h8x8e-kit1.htm (Driver IP)

2. https://www.vanco1.com/product/8x7-hdbaset-matrix-selector-switch-additional-hdmi-output/ (Driver IP)

3. https://jtechdigital.com/product/jtech-4k88-ex-0435/ (Driver Serial)

to take into account among these three references:

1. They have the same remote control (so it should share the same IR codes)
2. In the Manuals of each equipment, when analyzing the Serial codes, they are the same
3. the graphical environment of the Web interface are very similar.

At this moment I am waiting to schedule a visit by my technician to verify the 3 Drivers (2 Driver IP and 1 Driver Serial) and I will tell you how I am doing ... however, if someone can carry out this verification before I would appreciate it any comments about it ???
