As the title implies I've been fortunate enough to inherit a DM switcher. I have never programmed Crestron but do have an unfortunate amount of experience with AMX :). I'm currently evaluating Kramer Control and would like to know if anyone has had success controlling a DM with a "3rd Party"? Ive seen examples of protocol like SETAVROUTE SETVIDEOROUTE SETAUDIOROUTE etc....

But what is the procedure and syntax for sending this? Simpy sending the command to the IP and a specific port via TCP/UDP? or HTTP?

Any advice is appreciated, even "you're a dummy for trying this!"

Haven't tried it personally but you should be able to SSH/Telnet into it and send commands that way (providing the previous installer didn't disable these ports).
You can't fix stupid

I know people who have controlled it with Savant. Not familiar with Kramer having a control system.
