Hi all, I’ve created a new small extension which allows controlling devices which offer only IR control to be turned on/off directly from Roon.
It requires some extra bits to make it work, but works very well for me and my Chord Dave. See the readme for details.
You can grab it from github or directly using npm (npm -g install roon-extension-ircontrol).
I prefer to automate my roon extensions using pm2 which allows me to recover from any crashes and automatically restart the extensions.
This extension could be easily updated to support more than just power control adding source switching and volume control, but since I run my Dave in DAC mode, I don’t need these features.
