Creating an XPanel for Crestron Offsite Programming

If you’ve ever needed to do some Crestron programming offsite, all you need is a processor – the panel can be simulated using an XPanel. Here is a quick video showing how to set this up.

    I am Ali from Saudi Arabia. I am working here as Technical Engineer in AV Automation department.

    Just want to appreciate you for your work. It is quite interesting reading your blog. I am always looking to learn and to keep my self up-to-date in AV automation industry. And i am learning a lot from you. Thanks for sharing your knowledge and i am waiting to see whats next on your website.

    Currently i am working on XMBC server to integrate with Crestron. It is quite amazing experience. I proposed many expensive solutions to my clients for AV servers. But now i got something really shocking which is XBMC server. It is not working fine with me on 3 series processor but 2 series processor is running it smooth. If you have any knowledge on this please share it.

    Thanks again for your efforts

      Hello Ali,

      I haven’t worked with XMBC server at all, but it does look interesting. I assume you are using TCP/IP communication from the Crestron processor to control the playback functions of the XMBC unit. Odd that it would work on 2 series but not 3 series processors though.
      Are there modules for Crestron to connect to XMBC, or did you develop your own way?
