Command Passthrough

Command Passthrough allows you to take an incoming command and pass it back out again to. To set this up you need to follow the steps below

  • For commands that are static and never change, simply change the command type in step 4 above to Passthrough.
  • For commands that have dynamic content within them (Such as Now Playing Text) format the command as follows:

    - Set the incoming command to be PASSTHROUGH

    - Format the command sent to Data Controller as follows:
      PASSTHROUGH|OUTGOINGSERVICE|COMMMAND.

    For example, PASSTHROUGH|COM-A|Now Playing.. Rolling Stone - Satisfaction, will send Now Playing.. Rolling Stones - Satisfaction to the COM-A port.
