IR Help

From JP1 Remotes

There is so much to learn about JP1. It’s a fascinating subject, but chances are if you are reading this, all you want to do is control your TV, VCR and DVD using 1 remote. This is my attempt to create a guide on how to use IR and the supporting tools. But keep in mind that the software is continually evolving and this document was last updated in the summer of 2010.

This is compiled from many posts and articles I read in the JP1 forum. I’ve borrowed freely from what I’ve read on the JP1 site at, and from the old Yahoo site. My thanks to everyone on the JP1 experts who created the tools and shared their knowledge. - Vickyg2003
