If you find yourself with a Device that does not currently exist within our Database, there are a couple options to pursue to get the commands into the Builder.
Or, you can Learn IR commands from the Physical remote and upload these commands into a New or Existing Device. The process below explains this third option in detail.
Access the Kramer hardware webpage – (This example accesses the SL-280 webpage) and select the option for IR Command Learner
Add a Name for your Command, timeout value and choose the option to Start Learning
Using the physical remote point the remote at the FRONT of the Kramer Hardware. The Command Learner page shows the received command
_The options below the window allow you to test the learned command. By assigning the proper port where the IR emitter is plugged in, you can simulate the command to ensure the learning process worked properly. _
After the Command has been tested, use your mouse (or select option to copy) and highlight the received data.
If your Builder is not open, make sure to Launch the Builder now
The next step varies on your situation, you are either going to Edit a Device or Create a New Device (This example Edits an Existing Driver)
Select your Device from the Device section, and open the Menu then select the option to Edit Device
