How to add commands of new devices?


Devices are added to the MyURemote database almost daily, so this list is not always up to date. If after reviewing the list of devices you can’t find what you’re looking for, or you’re still uncertain whether a device is controllable, please contact MyURemote’s support team for further assistance.

Use the specified pre-defined labels for your commands as they come in the dropdownboxes so they match with the graphic AV-buttons like PLAY, SKIPFWD,…

A command is related to an amplifier-input when the input-name is preceded by “INPUT”. (e.g.: “INPUT DVD”, “INPUT FM”, “INPUT HDMI1″…)

A device can only ‘be’ an amplifier when there is minimum one Input command and a Vol+ and Vol- command!

Adding IR commands using a Global Caché IR product and iLearn.

iLearn is the companion application for the IR products of Global Caché. This utility allows you to read the IR codes of your remote which you want to add to your personal MyURemote database. For this you can use all iTach models (built in), the GC-IRL, and the GC-IRE (with attached GC-RG1).

Here you find step by step how to add IR commands to your devices database.

Launch iLearn

Download and launch the iLearn utlity for Windows and Mac Version


The iLearn utility is used to learn IR codes from an iTach, Global Cache Serial IR learner connected to the computer or connected to a GC-100 Gateway.

Select Learner

Select the type of learner from the IR Learner drop down list. In this tutorial we will use the iTach Learner included with every iTach IR Gateway.

IP Address

Type the IP address of the iTach Gateway and click on the Connect button.


Confirm that the iLearn utility connected to the iTach.

Select Format

Select the Format type from the Save Format drop down list. In this tutorial, we will use the Globan Caché codes.

Save Data


Aim the remote at the IR Learning port and press the button on the remote you wish to learn. Type the name of the corresponding code you are learning and click on the Save Data button. In this example we are learning the volume up button. You can repeat this step to learn additional IR codes.

Copy (ctrl + C) the IR code (without “sendir,1:1,”).

To add a new device to the database click here. Then define Type, Brand and Product. Do not forget to SAVE. After you created the device you can add the commands.  

Start here to import the new IR commands to the MyURemote database:   Select Device Database.

Click commands on the device for which you want to add IR commands


Add Device Code

Click on the tchnologie dropdown and select IR from the drop down list. Click OK. Click on command name and select the command name you want to add.

Paste IR Code

Click in the command value field and press Control-V on the keyboard to paste the Code into the command value of the IR code. Please note that when pasting the command it should not have anything other than the code. Make sure there are no carriage returns or spaces after the actual command.

 Rename Code

Once the command is added to the commands-list you can edit the name.

Every commands that activates an input on a amp, reveiver or television must start with the name “input ” (“Input” + space) !

It is very important that the “SOURCE” function for televisions is entered because this function is automatically linked to the “TV SRC”  on de Audio/Video GUI.

Here’s a list of all the public devices (note: for IR or RS232 devices you need a controller):
