Setting up the Switchamajig IR

 

We made a video showing how to set up the Switchamajig IR.

 

Your Switchamajig IR should have come with a Quick-Start Guide. If you need another one, here it is.

 

Your first step is to tell your unit to join your WiFi network. You'll use your computer to do that.

 

Note: for Windows, you need TWO downloads to get your system working. For the Mac, you only need one. We're working to simplify the process for Windows as well.

 

Mac: Run the app on this image. It will install a driver and then help you configure your Switchamajig IR. (Support note: sometimes you need to quit the program, unplug your IR, plug the IR back in, and restart the program.)

 

Windows: First, install your driver:

 

    Windows-driver

 

    Windows8-driver (beta)

 

 

Then plug your Switchamajig into your computer with the USB cable and run the configuration program:

 

    Windows-install program

 

 

If you have problems, use the form to the right to contact us and we'll be in touch shortly to get you going.

 

Special IR Panels

 

Here you'll find extra panels that you can add to your application to get you going with certain products faster.

 

To install the panel, connect your iPad to your computer, start iTunes, select your device and click on "Apps." Scroll down to the bottom of the page, where you'll see a group of apps whose files you can access. Add the file you want to the Switchamajig App. Then the next time you start your app, you'll have the new panel.

 

If you want to have several copies of the same panel, maybe to change them around, you can change the file's name add it a second time.

Toys

We have the Silverlit Construction Set. We bought it at onestepahead.com, but we've seen it in several places. We feature this toy in one of our videos.
