How to Load Sub Remotes

Tutorials Add comments

Sub-remotes is a new feature introduced with Vectir 3.5 that makes it possible to load remote profiles from within remote profiles. This tutorial shows how you can add sub-remotes to your own custom remote profiles.

Step 1
Make sure you are running version 3.5 or later of the Vectir server and mobile software. Note that this feature currently only works with the Vectir Android, Windows Phone 8 and BlackBerry 10 mobile apps.

Step 2
Add a button control to your remote design for loading the sub-remote. Name the button control appropriately – “ButtonLoadSystemRemote” for example.

Step 3

Right click on the Command folder of your remote and select the ‘Add Load Remote Profile Command’ option. This will load the remote profile selection dialog.

    Thank you for the simple and easy to understand tutorial. I now have quick access to all of my satellite receiver remotes from my parent remote.
