Do I need the admin key to program TruLink A/V controller
Asked by: Anonymous
You do not need an admin key to program the Av controller. It can be programed by connect the AV controller to a computer via a USB A male to USB mini B male cable. You would also need to install the AV controller manager software available on C2G.com under drivers.

Does the IR window support IR passthrough to the Controller IR Output port for non-programmed in commands?
Asked by: Anonymous
It does not pass through IR signals. That port is strictly to learn IR commands to the controller.

Do the dual DB9 RS-232 have the ability to be expanded? If we have more than two devices that need RS-232 commands sent can the controller be expanded beyond the two device limit? Also, can custom commands be sent via RS-232 or are we limited to those devices listed in the TruLink A/V controller manager software?
Asked by: Chad
You can not expand beyond the DB9 (RS232 ports). Yes you can program other devices into the controller manager.
