I have a weird problem with some new remotes I bought.
I already can control my RC-710 outlets using the code I found here:http://www.dserv01.de/howtos/funksteckdose-fernsteuern-mit-arduino/
from the same page I used the instructions to decode the signals from my new 'Flamingo' outlets remote control (the Flamingo outlets more or less seem to be the same a the ELRO 440, but dont have DIP switches).
I had no problem to decode the signal (mis-)using an audio editor and my soundcard as 'poor mans osciloscope'.
this is the remotes signal for 'ch a off' as captured with audacity (I accidentally marked all zeros as ones and vice versa - but thats not the problem, I noticed that later):
I also could rebuild the signal manually as described on the same page
(basically only had to tweak the 'wait' function to wait 324 microseconds instead of 350).
I also could send an identical signal via RC switch, it detected a PulseLength of 331 microseconds.
However, that would cause a 'streched' signal compared to the orig. remote.
In order to have identical signals in my poor-osci I had to use 324 microseconds also for RC switch.
but now both signals match (top is original remote, on bottom the arduino generated signal):
this is what RC switch captures from the orig remote:
Decimal: 5243156 (24Bit) Binary: 010100000000000100010100 Tri-State: FF00000F0FF0 PulseLength: 331 microseconds Protocol: 1
watchin this in Sui's oszi:
so it all seems to match, but the damn outlets only switch with the remote, but not from the arduino.
its not a problem in my transmitter setup, I can still switch the RC-710 outlets, and can capture the sent signals as well.
I also tried with inverted signals but no success - and as said - visually the signals match.
Any ideas what the problem could be?
thnx & greets
