IRUSB without NetPlay Home

What will you be using IRUSB for?

(please select)

NetPlay Home with a home automation controller

1. IRUSB is added to each NetPlay TV zone that needs IR control
 - Connect IRUSB to the USB port of the device running NetPlay TV
 - Download and run IrUSB app on these devices. No additional setup or ID is required
 - In virtual matrix sink setup, select "IRUSB" IR type. You do not need to enter the device ID unless multiple IRUSBs are connected to the sink device (or IRUSB is connected to a different platform)
 - You can find the device ID listed on the main screen of IrUSB app. You can use the "Send IR" button to identify each transceiver.

2. IRUSBs are added to NetPlay Manager for each source the needs IR control (and does not use a VTX device)
 - In virtual matrix source setup, select "IRUSB" IR type and enter the device ID of IRUSB for that source
 - You can find the device ID of IRUSB using the TODO

3. NetPlay Manager handles all IR routing

4. Simply connect NetPlay Manager to your home automation system using the NetPlay drivers
 - NetPlay Mobile can also provide full system control without needing an external system

If using an external control system, no additional setup is required.
If using NetPlay Mobile for IR/IP control, you will need to configure the saved IR/IP codes for your sources and displays.

Control NetPlay Home with universal IR remotes

1. IRUSB is added to each NetPlay TV zone that needs IR control
 - Connect IRUSB to the USB port of the device running NetPlay TV
 - Download and run IrUSB app on these devices. No additional setup or ID is required
 - In virtual matrix sink setup, select "IRUSB" IR type. You do not need to enter the device ID unless multiple IRUSBs are connected to the sink device (or IRUSB is connected to a different platform)
 - You can find the device ID listed on the main screen of IrUSB app. You can use the "Send IR" button to identify each transceiver.

2. IRUSBs are added to NetPlay Manager for each source the needs IR control (and does not use a VTX device)
 - In virtual matrix source setup, select "IRUSB" IR type and enter the device ID of IRUSB for that source
 - You can find the device ID of IRUSB using the TODO

3. NetPlay Manager handles all IR routing

4. Now, program your IR remote(s)

 - Program your IR remote source pages/keys to control each of your sources.
 - Program your IR remote TV page/keys to control the NetPlay TV device in that room. If needed, you can configure IrUSB app HID support
 - We recommend using the same IR remotes in all rooms, that way the remote programming is the same in all rooms.

If you are also using NetPlay Mobile for IR control, you will need to configure the saved IR codes for your sources and displays.

Home Automation Controller Integration

1. Connect your IRUSB devices to one or more supported platforms
 - Linux platform setup instructions
 - Android platform setup instructions
 - You can use USB hubs to connect many IRUSB devices to a single platform

2. Determine which API (Cloud, NetPlay, Global Cache) your home automation controller will use (based on available drivers)
 - If using Global Cache protocol, make sure GC mode is enable in the Android app (on by default in Linux)
 - If using Cloud protocol, make sure NetPlay Cloud mode is enabled

3. Download / install and configure the driver for your control system
 - IRUSB driver information

When using external control systems, you do not need to configure the saved RX / TX / or HID codes on any IRUSB devices.

IR to/from Cloud integration

1. Connect your IRUSB devices to one or more supported platforms
 - Linux platform setup instructions
 - Android platform setup instructions
 - You can use USB hubs to connect many IRUSB devices to a single platform

2. Setup NetPlay Cloud on all your IRUSB devices

3. Configure the saved TX and/or RX codes
 - Linux codes setup instructions
 - Android codes setup instructions

Device GUI and Menu Control

1. Connect your IRUSB devices to a supported platform
 - Linux platform setup instructions (NOT CURRENTLY SUPPORTED FOR HID MODE)
