I got a global cache gc-100-12. has 2 serial ports, 3 relays, 6 ir outputs or other uses. It is network connected.
I would like to use this to control my tv and amp using the remote.
I have 2 xbmc machines. 1 older sharp with serial and a Samsung tv with serial. the amp is ir controlled.
The sharp and amp is together while the Samsung is all alone.
Now what I want to happen is the following
I boot xbmc using the app. Once it boots it turns on my tv and or amp. when I need to adjust the volume just the amp does it.
Once I am done and shut down xbmc it also turns off everything that that xbmc was using.
