Can BrightSign players send IR commands?

Last Updated: October 19, 2016

Yes, the XTx43, 4Kx42, XDx33, XDx32, and XDx30 models have an IR blaster jack that can send IR commands using BrightAuthor versions 3.8 or later. BrightAuthor supports sending NEC formatted integer values or longer Pronto formatted IR codes, which you can get form sites like www.remotecentral.com or from your TV or device manufacturer. 

IR Blaster

Any IR blaster with a 3.5mm stereo plug will be compatible with the BrightSign player. Mono plugs are not supported.

This IR blaster has been tested and proven to work with the BrightSign player.

BrightAuthor

IR commands are specified in BrightAuthor by adding an command to an event or state in the Advanced tab. Use the Send > Send IR Remote command for NEC commands or Send > Send IR Remote Pronto command for Pronto Hex commands.

Pronto IR Codes

When using Pronto-formatted IR codes, you may get a "pulse too long" error in the system log, and the code will fail to work. To fix this issue, change the last 4 characters of the IR code to all zeros. Below is a "power on" command before and after the change.
