Remote Control Plugins

Post by WharfRat » Fri May 23, 2014 11:35 am

This topic is an adjunct of the Remote Controls topic.

Similarly, this topic may eventually have to be handed over to one of the admins to continue.
Thus, I will use ControlFreak to organize this topic until I surrender that profile to the admins.

So, for now, WharfRat is ControlFreak.
EventGhost 0.4.1.r1640
PHX01RN plugin v3.0.1
Windows XP 32bit (v5.1 Build 2600 Service Pack 2)
Windows7 64bit (v6.1 Build 7601 Service Pack 1)

Part I : Introduction

This topic is about the plugins for the remote controls.
It does not describe plugins for anything else, unless it is necessary.

The topic is structured as follows:
  • Part I : Introduction
    Part II : Explanation
    Part III : Remote Control Plugins
    Part IV : Installing a remote control
    Part V : WinUSB
    plugin RP-0001
    plugin RP-0002
    etc.
    and then comments, suggestions, and more remote control plugins
    etc.

Part II : Explanation

The details for each remote control plugin follows a consistent format.


plugin code: the reference code for this plugin name: the name of the remote control plugin
  • this corresponds with the name in the EventGhost Add Plugin... dialog
plugins for smartphones and tablets include a screenshot picture of the plugin user interface
  • some of these plugins can be customized, so it may not necessarily appear like this
remotes: which remotes work with this plugin

included: is it included with the EventGhost installation program
  • if the plugin is not included, then it must be downloaded and installed manually
forum: link to the EventGhost forum topic for this remote control plugin
  • some of the plugins do not have a dedicated forum topic
requirements: what else is needed for this plugin
  • many of the remotes require WinUSB, which is discussed in Part V
    some of the other requirements are usually included with the remote control installation software
    some of the other requirements must be downloaded and installed separately
    each remote control may also have additional hardware requirements
    please refer to the remote control links for additional hardware requirements as well
notes: whatever else may prove to be useful


We can, of course, adapt these details as the need arises.

Part V : WinUSB

Some of the USB remote control plugins for EventGhost v0.4.x and later require WinUSB.
If WinUSB is needed, EventGhost will check to see if it has already been installed.

EventGhost can automatically download WinUSB if the computer is connected to the Internet.
One advantage of this method is that it will only download the required version: 32bit or 64bit.
Another advantage is that the downloaded files are automatically installed in the correct folder.
The disadvantage of this method is that the computer must be connected to the Internet.

WinUSB can also be downloaded from the EventGhost website and installed manually on each computer.
One advantage of this method is that the computer does not have to be connected to the Internet.
Another advantage is that you get the 32bit and the 64bit versions at the same time.
The disadvantage is that you have to copy the files to the correct folders manually.

It is a good idea to download WinUSB and keep a copy of it with your copies of the EventGhost installation programs.
The 32bit and the 64bit versions are approximately 5MB each, so the combined version is about 10MB.

To check if the WinUSB drivers have been installed on a computer, perform Procedure 02.

If your computer is connected to the Internet, it is simpler to allow EventGhost to install WinUSB automatically.
If you are installing WinUSB on a computer that does not have an Internet connection, then you must install WinUSB manually.

To install WinUSB manually, perform Procedure 03.
