THE WIDGET STORE

This is Tommy Tyler's new store, exclusively for the sale of IR Widgets. E-mail address for ordering Widgets was updated Dec 16, 2018.



The IR Widget is a tool for capturing and displaying infrared remote control signals on your PC. With its amazing companion software, it is the simplest, most accurate, and easy-to-use instrument ever designed for measuring, analyzing, and studying signals transmitted by infrared remote controls. Unlike similar devices that use demodulating infrared receivers designed for a single carrier frequency, this unit uses a high speed optical sensor that detects individual carrier pulses over a wide range of frequencies (10 KHz to 100 KHz). That enables it to measure carrier frequency as well as to determine the demodulated waveform timing with extreme accuracy by detecting the precise start and stop of carrier bursts.

Using the IR Widget couldn't be easier. Download the free application software bundle (about 500KB) from HERE . No software "installation" is necessary. Just extract the six files and place them all in a folder of your choice. (You can even put them on a thumb drive and run the application from there if you want to.) Connect the IR Widget to your PC with a Mini USB cable (not supplied with the Widget), open IRScope.exe, and you're ready to go. Place your remote control within a few inches of the sensor on the end of the board, select "Capture" on the screen, and press a remote button you want to examine. IRScope immediately displays the signal graphically on your screen as if it had been captured by a digital storage oscilloscope, with waveform timing drawn to precise scale and time labeled in microseconds.



You can capture and save an unlimited number of records, each having a duration of your choosing, from 1/2 second for short signals, up to 15 seconds for long macros or groups of signals. Records can be re-sized, re-positioned, zoomed in or out for resolution from 1 us/pixel to over 1 ms/pixel, annotations can be added, and much more, all with just a few clicks of the mouse. IRScope uses smart algorithms and an extensive data base to automatically analyze, identify, and decode most remote control signal protocols. To see some examples of the incredible variety of information available, download my IR Widget & IRScope Operating Instructions Rev 18 from HERE and take a look.

If you are working with infrared remote control in any format, including Slingbox, this is the ideal solution for trouble-shooting problems. Use it to determine if that universal remote you just bought transmits the exact same signal as the original manufacturer's remote. Use it to determine if a signal is transmitted only once, or what kind of a repetition pattern it has. Use it to learn how the toggle control bit in Philips RC5 protocol works. Use it to measure the time it takes to transmit a command, and the delay between commands in a macro. The uses are limited only by your imagination. Infrared technology is fun to work with . . . IF you have a device like this that lets you "see" everything a remote control says to a consumer product.

HOW TO PLACE AN ORDER

There are two steps to placing an order for a Widget:

1. Send an email to thewidgetstore80@gmail.com telling me you want to order a Widget, and where you want it shipped. Please make sure you also provide a return email address so I can notify you when the item is shipped.

2. Send a payment to my PayPal account, which is also thewidgetstore80@gmail.com. I cannot handle checks, money orders, credit cards, or cash. The price is $35 per Widget, plus Shipping and Handling. S&H charges are $7 for the first item and $3 each additional item. PayPal notifies me automatically as soon as you make a payment, so you don't have to let me know you have paid.

NOTE: I regret that I cannot accept orders from addresses other than the United States. That's because PayPal has told me that I must refund a buyer's money if he claims he did not receive an item and I cannot prove that he did. I'm unwilling to accept the risks of foreign postal services losing a parcel.

Widgets are shipped from Denver, Colorado via First Class Mail only, which does not provide tracking. IR Widgets are in stock, and shipping is usually within a day or two of placing an order, unless it's a weekend or holiday, or a very snowy day. Please don't ask for shipping by Priority Mail, UPS, Fedex, Courier, or any means other than USPS First Class mail.

In addition to a site for purchasing Widgets, this store is also a thread for posting any comments, tips, or suggestions you have, based on your experience using an IR Widget, problems or complaints, ideas for improvement of the product or documentation, etc.

I had sent a couple of emails to thewidgetstore80@gmail.com to see if it was still active, but have gotten no response. I would like to purchase a irwidget, but was hesitant to send a paypal. Please let me know if widgets are still for sale. hdog@xnet.com

Did you ever get a response from Tommy Tyler? I placed an order back in December of last year but never received the IR Widget and never received a response to my emails. Sure would be nice to know what is going on.

Yes he did. Tommy said he was having some issues with email. Give it another try.

WRB,

You say you placed an order in Dec of last year. That would be Dec 2018 right? I have no record of your order and I never ship a Widget until it has been paid for. If you have any info that shows you paid for a Widget and I was aware of it, I'll be glad to complete your order. I notice you didn't join the forum until early this year, which means you ordered at least a month before joining. Did you read the instructions at my store page in the forum to know how to place an order?

The address given on the store page for PayPal payments (thewidgetstore80@gmail.com) was added after I had to change my ISP from Comcast in late 2018. Comcast was supposed to forward all store emails to my personal address, but the system has never worked reliably. I am concerned that you may have placed an order but because the mail forwarding never worked well, I never received any of your email. What's most important is whether you made a payment to PayPal. They had the store address too, and would have just put the money into that account and their notification would never have reached me. If you did that you are entitled to either a Widget or a refund, your choice, and I apologize for your inconvenience. Send me a copy of your PayPal receipt and tell me if you still want a Widget or would prefer a refund.

Tommy

Tommy,

I did place an order in December of 2018 and paid with PayPal. Never received the item and no response to my emails. Not knowing what may have happened to you I went to my PayPal account and saw that you never picked up your money so I canceled the payment. Hence, you do not owe me anything. Just glad you are OK.

I will place the order again!

Wendell Breland,

Forget all that stuff I just wrote. I finally opened the store email address and found your emails of 12/14, 12/27, 1/4, and today. You have every right to be ticked off. If I've learned nothing else from this experience it's NEVER start selling stuff by email if you EVER expect your internet provider might change. Since you're probably not monitoring the forum, I'm sending you an email to discuss how you want to proceed from here.

Tommy
