I just received my Broadlink RM Mini 3. I successfully captured the codes from my Samsung remote. However, there is no official button to switch between HDMI and TV via a single button press. You have to press the source button multiple times, which makes it difficult to switch back an forth between HDMI and TV. TV to HDMI requires two times the source button and the opposite direction requires three times the source button.
Therefore, I was trying to capture the “Change input to HDMI” and “Change input to TV” IR commands send by my Harmony. However, those captured codes do not work with the Broadlink RM Mini 3. Strangely, they do if I capture them via the iOS app.
Long story short: I was looking for a database or repo e.g. on Github, where people collect captured codes to be used within HASS. Otherwise, it would be nice if someone could share a working code for switching directly to HDMI and TV respectively.
I still have no luck with capturing the IR commands from my Harmony. Did someone manage to successfully capture a command with the RM Mini 3 and replay it?
It works without an issue with the normal remote. But there I am missing a discrete on / off command for both the TV and the Onkyo. As a workaround, I can switch on the TV by sending channel up. Unfortunately, there is no such command for my Onkyo. Therefore, I am limited to the power toggle command. If I don`t know the init state, I might switch off the receiver instead of switching it on.
are you sure that your infrared code ist correct? I had similar issues and the problem was a missing = sign at the end of the code.
Also: check out this app “Sure Universal Remote”
It works with the RM Mini and has many codes for Samsung TV. The nice thing is that you can use the same Broadlink RM device for receiving and sending the Code at the same time. This is how I captured a direct HDMI1 switch code and separate on and off codes for my TV while it wasn’t working with the normal TV Remote.
Thanks! I did not know that I can send and receive / capture codes at the same time. That helped a lot.
In addition one should always copy the codes from the log, since I sometimes missed the “=” at the end, when I copied the codes from the GUI. Some codes end with two “=” symbols.
thanks for the reply! I’ve been poking through some of your zanzito voice command stuff recently, I really appreciate all the input you’ve given around here. Deleted my post cause I was stupid, I figured out that the app linked up above would work on an old android phone we had lying around. I was able to get the codes I needed using the app and the learn function of the broadlinks.
