I created a device with codes for a unit that comes with a bluetooth remote. So now I can control it with ir. How do I share this to other users.

Select your Device on the right side of the Builder.

In the Property Box in the lower left corner, changed "shared" from no to yes.

Your Device will show up on the Community tab when you Browse Devices.

You may want to put something in the Device Name to make it easy to identify. I put my initials in mine.

Hello!
I shared the device, but forgot to enter vendor.
So now, it should be available if you in Irule Builder browse devices under community. Just put in "Arris" as vendor and search.
I tried it myself tonight after editing vendor and there it was!

Post here again if it didn't solve your problem.

The trick to learn the IR codes from the supplied remote is to unplug the Arris box. If there are no box that can connect via bluetooth, the remote switches to IR. Then I was able to learn the remote codes via IR learner.

(There is a problem with the menu button, that I haven't solved. If I need to go into menus, I use the "Telia Zappa" app.

Cheers
/Bengt
