Global Cache IP2IR

Recommended Posts

Is anyone using one of these?  They appear to have a C4 driver. Would this work the same as a C4 Z2IR, other than the fact that it uses Ethernet to connect back to your controller rather than Zigbee?

Ok great.  Seems pretty cost effective as I was able to order one from Amazon for C$91.  But I may have got the last one for that price.

Those IP2IR's can sometimes be close to the same price as a Z2IO but it's definitely a cost saving for just IR control.  They both have their purpose.

You can often get a used HC800 on eBay for less than the price of a Z2IO.  Whether that makes sense or not depends on how long we have until the HC800 no longer works in the C4 OS.

I agree, but in most instances I have room for AV components and I may want to bring audio to the room as well.  Therefore an HC800 has some benefits.  And if you are not yet on OS3 you can also get Navigator on your TV, but even where I have this I rarely use it as I generally find it easier to use my phone or a C4 remote.

I have a bunch at home that I don’t use anymore.  GC100, IP2SL(2) several itach flex with IR cables as well as serial.  Let me know if you need more we can work something out
