So funktioniert das SONY SIRCS/CTRL-S Protokoll


How SONY's SIRCS / CTRL-S protocol works

Neben der IR-Bedienung gibt es bei SONY die Möglichkeit, Geräte über die CTRL-S Schnittstelle zu bedienen. Die Command-Codes sind überall die gleichen, bei CTRL-S und IR benötigt man noch einen Geräte-Code. Ausserdem sind die Codes verglichen mit LANC™ um ein Bit nach rechts verschoben.
SIRCS entspricht im Timing dem CTRL-S, aber SIRCS wird mit 40 kHz gepulst. Ein Befehl ist erst nach 3 oder 4 Telegrammen gültig.
  Nearly all SONY devices can be controled by infrared, some also have a CTRL-S plug. The command codes are the same, but for CTRL-S and IR you need an additional device code.
SIRCS and CTRL-S have the same timing, but SIRCS is pulsed with 40 kHz. A command is valid after 3 or 4 telegrams.
