Hi Rob,

Just checking - did you send out the emails as I've not
received anything?

Ross, (and everyone else)

Sorry, I've not sent the 'official invitations' just yet.

For reasons that I won't bore you with, I'm having to move all of our
web-presence to a new host, on a very tight schedule (website,
forum, activation & auto-update - the works)!

As soon as I've completed that, I'll send out the emails. Believe me,
I'm as keen to get this one out there ASAP as anyone!

Thanks,

Rob

P.S. I'll also post here when I send the email, just in case anyone
doesn't receive it for any reason.

This weekend is my intention!

The only thing that could delay it is if the server migration verification
fails. I don't expect it to, but if it was guaranteed to be good, I'd not
have spent all this time checking!

Will post a go/no go tomorrow.

Regards,

Rob

OK - each of you should now have an email from me - basically checking who's in and who's out!

If you've received my message but no longer wish to participate, please reply to the email, and I'll take you off the list.

If you want to be a member of this test group, but haven't received my email, please contact me immediately via email, giving full name, Forum handle (if exists) and preferred contact email address.

Thanks all,

Let's get this rolling

Rob

Hi Rob,

I assume that means that people who are on the list, and who have received the email are IN

If you haven't received an email, you're not in (unless you contact me
soon).

Right, all aboard? Remember, if I didn't email you last week, you've
not been counted in! Likely admin error on my side! Sorry! Please
post here to give me a nudge, or email me *very soon*

Thanks,

Rob

Just the small matter of payment to be taken into account

I hope to send emails to all late tomorrow, requesting payment &
shipping address. Once people have paid, I'll know for sure who is
*genuinely* interested in joining.   

After that, depending on numbers, I may be able to offer those who
want them additional IR Transceivers.

Wheels are definitely rolling!

Rob.

Hi Rob,

Additional transceivers sounds interesting. What are you thinking with those ? Could they be used as an IR I/O repeater between pc's in different rooms ?

Not quite repeaters, as they'll all be individually addressable /
identifiable (at least that's my humble intention at this point).

Would enable event such as send "off" to bedroom TV -- handy
where more than one device responds to same code!

Make sense?   Can't promise it will be implemented that way, but it's
certainly a goal for now.

OK Guys (There aren't any ladies present, are there? If so, please let me know and I'll be sure to not to refer to everyone as Male),

I've just send an email out to everyone (here) who has requested to participate. It included detail of how to make the payment, and what I'd like you to do thereafter.

**IF you received an email, but don't want to join, please let me know ASAP**

*****IF YOU HAVEN'T RECEIVED THE EMAIL BY 9AM, BUT STILL WISH TO PARTICIPATE, PLEASE EMAIL ME STRAIGHT AWAY TO ENDSURE YOU GET IN!

Thank you all, let's get ready to shape the IR component!

erm, anyone spot the mistake in the email address I included in
the invitation email? This is IR, not 1-Wire!!

Apologies for any confusion!

I'll resend with correction - those of you who have paid obviously
don't need do anything.

Sorry guys,

Rob

Hi all,

Update: Thanks to those who have signed up (and paid). We are hoping to dispatch the hardware this Friday. Anyone who hasn't yet placed an order, please contact Rob ASAP!

For those that haven't joined yet, this really could be the biggest thing EVER for Harmony, and you can shape what it does and how it works. As well as that there is a discount for all people joining the Alpha test. Don't be worried if you don't think you are techy enough; your responses can be as simple as "that installed OK", or "it didn't work when I tried to do that". All tech levels are welcome, and will help make this a better product

The sky is the limit with this one. A few possibilities could be:
  • Use IR with voice control - help for the infirm.
  • Sky remote - Dim the lights when you press PLAY.
  • Sky remote - Projector ON, and screen DOWN when you press SKY ON.
  • Use of pre-existing libraries of IR codes.
  • IR control of HVAC.
  • Voice control of all the above !


Please note that Harmony voice control is available separately.

If you are not in the Alpha, you can't make it do what YOU want

Just wondering if you managed to despatch the hardware as I'm going to be away from home for a few days from Wednesday and will need to make arrangements for someone to check / go and collect it if it's attempted to be delivered after then....

Thanks

Ross

Hi Ross - if I don't get them in the post
today, I'll hold onto yours until you get
back - just let me know when it's
convenient for you.

Thanks,

Rob
