|USB-UIRT Getting Started|
WELCOME to the USB-UIRT Getting Started page. This page is a work in progress, but is intended to get you up and running quickly with your USB-UIRT.
GETTING THE RIGHT SOFTWARE
Your USB-UIRT is a Windows Plug-n-Play device. However, for Windows to be able to use your device, it needs to load the appropriate drivers. To download the latest USB-UIRT Windows Drivers, click the driver link for the appropriate operating system below:
The driver .ZIP file contains multiple files which are needed by the
Windows Operating System for proper operation of your USB-UIRT. You may
INSTALLING YOUR USB-UIRT
Once you have downloaded the USB-UIRT drivers, you are ready to plug in your unit for the first time. Once you plug in your USB-UIRT, Windows will begin the driver installation process. Here's what you'll see:
Once your USB-UIRT Windows drivers have been installed, your USB-UIRT device is ready for operation with third-party software.
INSTALLING GIRDER and the USB-UIRT GIRDER PLUGIN
A software plugin for Girder 3.x is available for download by clicking here. If you do not have Girder installed on your system, you will need to go to the Girder website and follow the download and installation instructions prior to installing the USB-UIRT Girder plugin. Girder 4.x users will already have a USB-UIRT Girder 4.x plugin installed as part of their Girder 4.x installation.
To download the USB-UIRT plugin for Girder, click here.
The plugin .ZIP file contains a plugin .dll file named 'USBUIRT.dll'. To make this plugin available to Girder, this file needs to be extracted to the Girder 'Plugins' directory. On most installations, this directory is something like: "C:\Program Files\girder32\plugins".
ENABLING THE USB-UIRT GIRDER PLUGIN
Once the USBUIRT.dll plugin file has been copied into the Girder Plugins directory, you're ready to launch Girder to enable the plugin. Note that is Girder is already running, you need to *completely* exit Girder (i.e. File->Exit) and restart it.
1. Launch Girder:
2. Choose 'Settings...' from the 'File' menu.
3. Click on the 'Plugins' tab.
4. Scroll down through the list of plugins until you see 'USB-UIRT driver'. Check the box next to this item and click 'Apply'.
5. Click 'OK'.
The best place to start if you're having technical difficulties is the USB-UIRT Forum. Here you can post questions, read tips and FAQ's, and read up on solutions found by other USB-UIRT users. Also, a wealth of knowledge about HTPC (Home-Theater PC's) and IR integration can be found at the Home Theater Computers forum on AVS Forum.
