automation software integration
« on: July 16, 2016, 03:45:13 am »
Hi,

Is it possible to have the PS or other RDS text updated via simple TCP commands?  Or does the software need to implement the complete UECP protocol?  Other encoders I know oif can accept commands like "PS=Several words here" and the encoder takes care of sending the PS text in blocks of 8.

Thanks.

Not only the PS, the PIRA encoders can be completely controlled by ASCII commands.

Preferred command for sending a text which has to be showed in the PS is:

DPS1ENQ=Your text here, up to 128 characters<CR>

where CR is Carriage-return character (Chr 13).

The encoder parses the text itself, based on the Dynamic PS 1 mode. The options for the mode are:
  • Mode 0 - Scrolling by fixed blocks of 8 characters
  • Mode 1 - Scrolling by 1 character
  • Mode 2 - Word alignment scrolling
  • Mode 3 - Scrolling by 1 character, text separated by spaces at begin and end

See the Technical manual for complete list of commands and more details.

Is there an ASCII command that will send title / artist in radiotext, dynamic PS, and RT+ ??
