1 Touchsquid Technology Inc. Setting up the TouchSquid Remote App

2 Setting up a new TouchSquid App Before the Remote app can control a Home Theatre System you need to setup your devices and activities. The TS app has been designed to be easy to set up, and many clients will be able to do their own setup without problems. Following is a complete run through of setting up a typical 4 device home theatre.

3 For setup choose the Settings icon. This is the Main App screen. All remote activities start here.

4 You can create a new room profile or edit an existing one.

5 Choose one of several languages. Additional languages will be added in future.

6 Add all the devices in the room first. External IR blasters such as Global Cache are supported for hidden devices. If you have one or more of these touch configure blaster before adding device to be controlled.

7 Choose the type of Device. Unusual devices like blinds and lighting are under Other.

8 Choose the Brand The brand list is extensive. It is touch and drag scrollable. We choose a Samsung TV.

9 Choose the Model. Specific model numbers are seldom needed as many models use the same codes. If only one code set is available you wont see this screen.

10 Some codesets are large and take a moment to load. Devices already chosen are shown.




14 Continue adding devices.







21 All the devices are listed so we can move on to activities.

22 Activities available will vary depending on which devices you have.

23 There are quite a few activity icons choose from. Touch the default icon to see what is available. You can add your own by putting them in the TSR/ActivityIcons folder. Each must have an _up and _dn state.

37 This unit has a lot of profiles already. There is no limit to the number of profiles you can store. Use a descriptive name.

38 Type a unique name.

40 If you have small children or teenagers you might want to protect the profile from changes with a numeric passcode.

41 Time to try it out!

42 Select an activity. The devices will power on and inputs will switch.

43 Changing activities will power off unused devices and power on new ones, then switch inputs.

44 In the event a device does not power on or off, touch the Squid Eye. This is also where you setup or edit custom buttons and Macros.

45 At the top are individual power buttons, and a button for each device which gives access to ALL its functions. Custom buttons are found under Advanced.

57 Back to watch TV and we can input a channel number.

58 The key pad appears. The Squid Eye allows us to set the delay between channel numbers. If this is too short or too long the device may go to the wrong channel.

59 Timing is set in milliseconds (1000=1 second)

60 The E key appends an ENTER command after the channel number. This will speed response on many set top boxes. The command is sent when you touch OK.
