doest it work friom ssh/putty , thats the real test
putty is in port 22 , also enable SSH service first
Have you tried a return at the end? x0d
Did you get this working @Alex_Yeoman? I was looking at a NoHassleAV 8x8 matrix (https://www.amazon.co.uk/HDCP2-2-Selector-Crestron-Control4-Automation/dp/B01GKFQNG8) but ended up importing a J-Tech digital unit (all appear to be the same rebadged units - https://www.jtechdigital.com/j-tech-digital-8x8-hdmi-matrix-switcher-4k-60hz-ultra-hd-8-displays-hdmi-2-0-supports-hdcp-2-2-1-4-edid-dts-dolby-hd.html) from the US, so I’m about to start configuring this.
@Alex_Yeoman if you see connection refused, it’s possible you already have something using that port ?
If you set something up to make a call, unless you set a time out it might stay locked open to that connection. Make sure you have nothing else running and restart your matrix and see what happens
If you can, share a link to the device’s documentation and the ASCII or HEX commands you need to use .
I tried the commands from the config code directly on the command line and didn’t work, but then I realised you have curly quotes. Changed to straight quotes and it switches (and I see a response).
echo -e “\x40\x54\x30\x32\x30\x33\x23” | nc 192.168.1.168 5000
Yep (in this example switches output 3 to input 4):
echo -e "\x40\x54\x30\x32\x30\x33\x23" | nc 192.168.1.168 5000 @ 09 01 #30x32x30x33x23 ” x21”
Edit - this works for me:
switch: - platform: command_line switches: hdmi_matrix: command_on: 'echo -e "\x40\x54\x30\x32\x30\x33\x23" | nc 192.168.1.168 5000' command_off: 'echo -e "\x40\x54\x30\x32\x30\x33\x23" | nc 192.168.1.168 5000' friendly_name: HDMI Matrix
Is there any setup for getting this to work in a hass.io install? Anything that needs to be enabled?
- platform: command_line switches: projector: command_on: 'echo -e "PWR ON\r" | nc 192.168.1.33 4999' command_off: 'echo -e "PWR OFF\r" | nc 192.168.1.33 4999' friendly_name: Projector
This does not work for me, but writing echo -e “PWR ON\r” | nc 192.168.1.33 4999 directly in the terminal at the ubuntu machine where HA/hass is installed works fine.
no problem for me, but my quoting is different in my setup, also running hassio on hassos
sc_living: friendly_name: Living command_on: echo -e "\xED\x43\x31\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\xAF\xAF\x43\x07\x01" | nc 192.168.0.10 1001 command_off: echo -e "\xED\x43\x31\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\xAF\xAF\x43\x07\x00" | nc 192.168.0.10 1001
Weird, I tried bot with and without the outer quotes, didn’t make a difference.
Jumping in for some help here,
my Sharp information display seems to REQUIRE a username and password, ive tried setting them to blank but it still asks for longin.
Ive tried writing a script to login like so:
#!/bin/bash echo "admin" | nc 172.16.0.53 10008 echo "admin" | nc 172.16.0.53 10008 echo "MUTE 1" | nc 172.16.0.53 10008
but it doesnt work for me.
Similarly, using the TCP sensor I get:
If I manually open a connection using Putty and login I can then send commands fine…
That’s 3 different TCP connections that you’re opening to 172.16.0.53, each of which sends a single line and closes the connection.
Maybe something like
(echo "admin"; echo "admin"; echo "MUTE 1") | nc 172.16.0.53 10008
which sends 3 lines into a single connection…
There are other tools like
expect that allow you to script interactive sessions programmatically if you need to wait for prompts to appear, etc.
[email protected]:~$ (echo "admin"; echo "admin"; echo "MUTE 1") | nc 172.16.0.53 10008 Login: Password:
It was a good attempt but no dice
is there a way I can put delays into the command? giving it time to prompt for login / pass before sending it ?
sorry this is all new to me
I dunno, maybe try:
(echo "admin"; sleep 1; echo "admin"; sleep 1; echo "MUTE 1") | nc 172.16.0.53 10008
At some point, you probably need some other tool or small program to emulate an interactive session, rather than blindly shouting down a connection…
or just launch a .py file , easier to send messages then
