CommandFusion IR Learner Software Updated - Crestron .ir file support, waveform view and more!

Posted By Aaron Green - 20 Aug, 2013

We have just added some new functionality to our IR Learner Software to make it even more powerful! It now has the ability to import and export Crestron .IR files. Also included in the latest beta update is the ability to view the IR waveform and store a photo of the actual remote control within the IR file.

Export .ir File

The ability to export to a .ir file is a huge feature and could make Crestron programmers lives much easier. Use our USB IR Learner to learn all the remote codes you require, then export it to a Crestron .ir file. You can then use it in your Crestron project as you would any other .ir file.

Import .ir File

Use the new import .ir file functionality to open and view or edit your existing .ir files. Add new commands, remove unnecessary commands or manipulate the file as required. You can even repurpose the Crestron IR code data for use in other systems such as our CommandFusion automation hardware.

IR Code Waveform

The second new feature we have added is the ability to view the IR waveforms. Typically, learnt codes from the same remote control will be very similar. So you can quickly and easily tell if a code has been learnt incorrectly just by comparing the waveforms.

This functionality could also be used to pull apart an IR code, measure timings and much more.

Store an Image Within IR File

The third new feature is the ability to store a photo of the actual remote within the IR File. This is very handy for remembering button layouts and the functionalities of dual-purpose buttons on complex remotes. Take a quick snap with your webcam or browse for a photo on your computer. Just another feature to help make integrators lives easier.


Combine these new features with the fact that the CommandFusion USB IR Learner is the most powerful available – and you have the ultimate IR toolkit at your disposal.

We are yet to find an IR code that our IR Learner cannot learn. It has been tested with super long split system codes and high end audio codes such as Bang and Olufsen.
