IR Actions brings better integration with IR functionality in Unified Remote. It allows you to use embedded and networked IR blasters to simulate IR remote control actions. Currently supported devices include: HTC One and Keene IR Anywhere. With the new IR actions you can control IR devices from any Widgets, Quick Actions or Custom Remote. Just follow the steps below to get started.
Requirements. A IR-enabled device or networked blaster is required. Currently supported devices include: HTC One and Keene IR Anywhere. Other devices may also work, but have not been tested yet. You will also need the full version of Unified Remote to unlock IR features.
Choose IR Device. Make sure you have the latest version of Unified Remote. Then start the app and go to Preferences, IR Settings (under Device Integration). It should automatically detect any IR devices that are available on your network or embedded in your device. Select the device you want to use.
Learn IR Code. To make sure IR is functioning properly you can test to learn an IR code in the app. Go to IR Learn in the preferences of the app. Follow the on-screen instructions and press Learn Code. Once the code is detected it should be displayed on the screen. You can Test the code or Send the code for later use.
Create a Widget. You can easily send IR actions using a widget. Simply create a new Unified Remote Widget on your homescreen. Select Change Action, set Target to Device and set Action to IR Send. You will now be prompted with the IR Learning screen, which will help you capture an IR code.
Create Quick Actions. You can also use Quick Actions together with IR actions. Simply configure your Quick Actions and follow the same instructions as above for Widgets.
Custom Remotes. You can of course also use IR actions in custom remotes. Just make sure you set your OnClick handler to "@irsend" and put an IR code as the Extra. The IR Learn Send feature is useful for creating custom remotes to easily copy the codes from your device to your computer.
<ActionRef Name="@irsend" Extra="place IR code here" />
<Button OnClick="MyIrTest" Text="Test" />
