I really need some help making a couple of IP modules compatible with Systembuilder. Crestron's answer ID makes it seem pretty simple, but I'm not very good with SIMPL (which is why I used SB). Would anyone be willing to help me out step-by-step? I'm willing to pay for the help.

Thanks,
CJ

I would invest the time in SIMPL and or Studio before I'd be making modules for SB. It's going away and don't expect it to be updated moving forward.

Which modules are you trying to work with?

I'd agree with you if I was just starting out, but I have been working on this on and off for the past 5+ years adding modules and customizing it. I've just added a few Roku's and would much prefer to use IP control for them. I plan on moving to Studio, but this is for a 2-series processor.

So you have an IP module for Roku that you want to use in SB?

Yes, for now. But I'd also like to learn so that I can convert other modules if I need to.

Spend the time learning SIMPL and Studio.

I can appreciate that learning SIMPL is something that I should do in the future. Unless I'm misremembering, changing to Studio means that I have to change to a 3-series processor and can't use my BiPads anymore. I have a ton of custom programming, so either case will mean weeks worth of work. Shouldn't changing the built-in module to be SB compatible take less than an hour (hopefully much less)? I remember changing a serial module was pretty quick.

Have you checked if the IP modules are 2-series compatible?

I had downloaded 3 modules from Yahoo and 2 of them are 2 series compatible.

Yes, most of the ones I found were 2-series compatible (from yahoo group and Crestron database), but none of the ones I found were SB compatible.

Answer ID 4101 on the Crestron site details exactly what to do to make a module SB friendly. You'll have to login to see it.

Yes, I tried that. It seems pretty straight forward but it didn't work. It's been a while, so I'll try going through it again. Thanks.

Download the Zip file at the bottom of the page. Contains all the instructions and a couple sample modules.

Not sure I saw the sample program the first time. I take a look. Thanks!

You have to scroll all the way to the bottom. I actually prefer the instructions in the zip over the web version.
