Myro:Bridge – Russound RNET HDMI Switcher Controller (firmware)
UPDATE: Now with Octava HDMI Switcher Support!
If you have been waiting for Russound to release a RNET based HDMI switcher to replace the VM1 series look no further! I’ve created a firmware to control Wyrestorm HDMI Matrix Switchers (4×2, 4×4 and 8×8) via Myro:Bridge. The onboard webpage allows you to configure/map the input and outputs of the matrix switcher to the sources and zones of your Russound controller. It’s an elegant system which is future proof and expandable. The Myro:Bridge plugs into the RNET ports and a RS232 cable is connected to the Wyrestorm switcher — it’s that easy! Watch the video for a quick demo on how it works.…

Myro:Bridge – Product Introduction/Website Launch
Just launched the Myro:Bridge website. Pre-orders begin now and if there aren’t any production issues, we should be shipping orders in a few weeks. The first batch of bridges will be a limited run to see how much interest there is so get your order in now to guarantee shipment!
The goal is to add more support (via firmware updates) as there are requests (via forum). I am also looking to expand support for Control4, Crestron and HAI controllers.

Myro:Bridge – Russound RNET to Apple iTunes (Remote)
Lots has been going on over the past few weeks… final PCB designs have been sent out for production. A new product web site is reaching completion leaving final assembly and testing left before I can start shipping the Myro:Bridge (that is going to be the final name). As promised, I have a video of the newest firmware which offers Russound RNET to Apple iTunes control. This is like the Russound RNET to Sonos except that you can pair, control and get metadata two and from Russound Keypads via iTunes. Enjoy!…

Myro Control – USCe (Universal Serial Converter w/Ethernet)
There’s not much to look at, but don’t let that fool you. This little black box is the Swiss Army Knife of connecting systems together. The platform, based on an ATMEL 1280 microprocessor (Arduino Mega family roots), can be loaded with different firmware that can turn it into a “Russound RNET to Sonos Bridge” or act as a bridge for many other kinds of devices (Apple TV/Windows Media Center, etc). It features an ethernet port for bridging IP based devices as well as two RS232 (prototype of single RS232 version shown above), one for connecting to the master RS232 device (e.g. Russound) and the other for connecting to a slave device (e.g. Matrix Switcher which only has RS232 control). The first of many firmware releases is the USCe-RS which is the Russound to Sono’s bridge (you can find out more about that here). The USCe will be sold under the Myro Control brand and will be soon available for pre-order.
UPDATE: Thanks for the feedback on the name. It’s not set in stone yet and will probably change when it’s officially released. This is a “working” name for now and it may end up being named the “Myro Control Bridge”.…
