I believe that Crestron removed all of their Lutron modules. This sucks since most of the existing lighting jobs out there are Lutron.

I did hear that Lutron went ahead and wrote some Crestron modules and they are available through one of the Lutron PSP sites??

Just answered my own question, it is via RS232 or IP =) also it was Lutron that wrote the module not Crestron..... although my rep specifically said Crestron wrote it? Hmmmm?

Anyway log into your RA2 dealer account and you will find the module under "drivers"

here is a copy of the FAQ's lutron gives with with the module. man i cannot wait to get my hands on prodigy =)

Where are the drivers available for download?
The drivers can be downloaded on the Lutron® resource website at http://**************************************
How do the two systems communicate with each other?
The drivers offer two-way functionality via Ethernet or RS232 integration
What functionality can I expect?
The drivers allow complete control and integration with RadioRA 2
How do I interface with Crestron Prodigy® and Adagio® home entertainment systems?
In order to integrate with any Crestron system, including Prodigy and Adagio systems, you must use the Crestron
SystemBuilderTM software.
What modules are included in the zip file?
•CoreModule
— Establishes the connection with the Main Repeater and manages all data flow
— Inputs and outputs are provided to interface to the other modules
— Can communicate via Ethernet or RS232
•EthernetrecommendedformostCrestron products
•RS232recommendedforProdigy systems
•FeedbackProcessingModule
— Reduces the amount of data that other modules will need to parse, making the overall program very efficient
•Simpl+® Module
— Used when programming with SIMPL+
•SIMPLWindowsTM Module
— Used when programming with SystemBuilder software
•MainRepeaterModules
— Allows control of the 100 possible scenes, LEDs, and monitoring contained on the Main Repeater
•Maestro® Dimmer Module
— Allows direct control and monitoring of any dimmer in the system
•KeypadModules
— Allows direct control and monitoring of any keypad button in the system including raise and lower, as well as
control of LEDs
•VisorControlReceiverModule
— Allows control of all buttons including contact closure inputs and outputs
•ShadeModule
— Allows direct control and monitoring of any shade in a RadioRA 2 system

Let me know how you make out with it and how it interfaces.

It says that prodigy systems should use rs232. I'm going to try the ip first.

In my System Builder, it has a TCP/IP module built in for Integra. I didn't add it. If you add a receiver and are choosing the file to use, it has the icon of a receiver instead of a flashing dot (IR) or the serial waves. It says:

DTR - 5.8 + 6.8 + 7.8 + 8.8 + DTC - 9.8 (TCPIP)

It let me add it in a quick test right now, but I haven't tried to use it or anything but I'm assuming it works.

Just make sure you use the V3.1 module as the v2 module has a bad latency problem especially with the volume. I have used the integra receivers with prodigy and IP control more times than I can remember, they work very very well. Make sure you set a static IP address outside of the scope of your DHCP server, and in the mmodule just use the standard TCP port of 60128.

It will work just fine on IP for prodigy as long as your not making more than 4 IP connections with prodigy at one time. This is the reason they suggest using RS232 instead of IP, I can see this being a problem if your using the P-IDOCv, with a network receiver, a weather module, and an iPad or iPhone. At that point the prodigy would not work with all of the modules and the IP for lutron.

that makes sense. and i forgot that the P-IDOCv is via IP.

what weather module are you talking about ?
like a system builder module that fetches weather info ?

im trying to add an onkyo receiver with ip on my prodigy system.
i added the ip device to the system. i right clicked it, went to properties and put the ip address in.

i enabled control on the onkyo receiver,
i can access the onkyo's ip page from the web browser,
and the onkyo can stream internet radio.

the prodigy system is not seeing the onkyo on the verify hardware page where it says TC/PIP Client but is seeing all other devices such as processor etc.

any advice?
im on site.

What is the satus of the connect feedback argument? Similiarly, what is the value of the analog connction status. Both signals are on the TCP/IP connection of the macro. I'd suggest using debugger but you can use Run Time to acertain these values.

If i remember correctly ( we set up our prodigy demo with Onkyo receiver a while ago ) - Port settings for Onkyo IP module in SB were set to port 6000 , it supposed to be 6028 . Also make sure that you have the latest firmware on your receiver .

I ended up switching the port in the Onkyo to 60000 as I couldn't find a way to change ports in sb. Works great now.

I have 11 Onkyo receiers in one home being controlled by ip along with a bunch of pioneer elites over ip. It's a great feeling when it works right.
