Setting up the TouchSquid
Remote App
Setting up a new TouchSquid App
Before the Remote app can control a Home Theatre
System you need to setup your devices and activities.
The TS app has been designed to be easy to set up, and many clients will be able
to do their own setup without problems.
Following is a complete run through of setting up a typical 4 device home theatre.
For setup choose
the Settings icon.
This is the Main App
screen. All remote
activities start here.
You can create a
new room profile or
edit an existing one.
Choose one of
several languages.
Additional languages
will be added in
future.
Add all the devices
in the room first.
External IR blasters
such as Global
Cache are supported
for hidden devices. If
you have one or
more of these touch
configure blaster
before adding device
to be controlled.
Choose the type of
Device.
Unusual devices like
blinds and lighting
are under Other .
Choose the Brand
The brand list is
extensive. It is touch
and drag scrollable.
We choose a
Samsung TV.
Choose the Model.
Specific model
numbers are seldom
needed as many
models use the
same codes.
If only one code set
is available you
won’t see this
screen.
Some codesets are
large and take a
moment to load.
Devices already
chosen are shown.
Continue
adding devices.
All the devices are
listed so we can
move on to
activities.
Activities available
will vary
depending on
which devices you
have.
There are quite a
few activity icons
choose from.
Touch the default
icon to see what
is available. You
can add your own
by putting them in
the
TSR/ActivityIcons
folder. Each must
have an _up and
_dn state.

VOD command,
then just leave it.
Set up the Bluray
activity.
Media Playback
includes Bluray,
CD, DVD and
video tape.
Check off the
devices used in
the activity. The
app takes a
guess…
Continue until all
activities are set up.
Then save the
profile.
All done with
settings, time to
save our work.
This unit has a lot
of profiles already.
There is no limit to
the number of
profiles you can
store. Use a
descriptive name.
Type a unique
name.

If you have small
children or
teenagers you
might want to
protect the profile
from changes with
a numeric
passcode.
Time to try it out!
Select an activity.
The devices will
power on and
inputs will switch.
Changing
activities will
power off unused
devices and
power on new
ones, then switch
inputs.
In the event a
device does not
power on or off,
touch the Squid
Eye.
This is also where
you setup or edit
custom buttons
and Macros.
At the top are
individual power
buttons, and a
button for each
device which
gives access to
ALL its functions.
Custom buttons
are found under
Advanced.

you can change
or create a

buttons neatly.
Back to watch TV
and we can input a

The Squid Eye
allows us to set
the delay between
channel numbers.
If this is too short
or too long the
device may go to
the wrong
channel.
Timing is set in
milliseconds
(1000=1 second)
The E key
appends an
ENTER command
after the channel
number. This will
speed response
on many set top
boxes.
The command is
sent when you
touch OK.
In this mode
commands are
sent immediately.
This is useful for
entering text cell

used in many
internet
connected TVs.
We can have
about 40 screens
of up to 24
favorites each.
Touch the heart

the TSR/user
folder.
Hundreds of logos
for channels and
