Xiaomi Chuangmi_ir (Universal IR Remote Controller)


#81

The homeassistant api for services has changed. I will update the component!


#82

Could you please post your configuration.yaml. The code of the custom component looks good. I assume your configuration doesn’t looks like this:

switch:
  - platform: chuangmi_ir
    name: "livingroomirremote"
    host: !secret chuangmi_ip
    token: !secret chuangmi_key
    switches:
      tv:
        command_on: ''
        command_off: ''

#83

Looks exactly like that. Problems started when updated to 0.61.

Will wait for the update of the component.


#84

Alright. I found the issue. Please update your custom component:


#85

Nice work! Works great.

But command is switch.send_command_192_xxx

Maybe it would be more convenient if it was switch.chuangmi_send_command_192_xxx
If one use different IR platforms


#86

You are totally right. I will refactor the code soon.


#87

I updated the component and I get this error.

Nope, doesn’t make a difference. @syssi This is my error:

#90

This is strange. Could you try to call “python” and input the following lines:

from construct.lib.bitstream import RestreamedBytesIO, RebufferedBytesIO

Does it return the same error?


#91

Hi, how do I call python? I use hass.io 0.61.1, do I need to use hassbian instead?


#92

In this case please wait for the next homeassistant release. The miio components are broken at 0.61.1.


#93

Hello.
Sorry if I missed something. After the latest update the service isn’t working anymore.
Both trying to call it in the dev tools like {“packet”:“Z6blabla”}, and in the scripts.yaml, like it used to do, using this format

lg_on_off:
sequence:
- service: switch.send_command_192_168_0_152
data:
packet:
- “Z6VHABsCAABEAgAAowYAAL8IAABkEQAAOyMAAKScAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAABFEBAgEBAQEBAgIBAgICAgIBAQECAQEBAQICAgECAgICBgNQA=”

No particular messages from log. I just replaced “chuangmi” with “switch” as domain, and stopped working.
The command_on: and command_off: declared in configuration.yaml work instead as expected.
Thanks!

@syssi with the latest Home assistant release (0.62.0) I’m still having problems.

This is my error:

Please provide the output (version numbers) of this three commands:

cat /usr/lib/python3.6/site-packages/miio/version.py
grep REQUIRE /config/custom_components/switch/chuangmi_ir.py

#96

A clever guy was able to encode proton ir commands in a chuang mir ir command (base64 string):

The feature is part of python-miio now and will be available soon at home assistant:

Stay tuned! My custom component will be obsolete then.


#97

@syssi
Trying to get this to work on Hass.io 0.63.1 but got this error. Installed on custom components. Any help?

@potato.xbe Please wait for HA 0.64. It will be fixed there.


#99

After updating to 0.63.3, chuangmi_ir is back. But it controls becomes an input boolean instead of separate on and off buttons like in the previous versions. And I get the following error when executing

#100

Please remove the custom_components/switch/chuangmi_ir.py and update your configuration to use the official component remote.xiaomi_miio.

Quick & dirty solution: I fixed the custom_component. https://github.com/syssi/chuangmi_ir
