Central Remote Control gathers events from TV remote controls, notebook buttons, USB-keyboard multimedia buttons and translates them to commands for multimedia applications.

Example 1: Notebook

You have a notebook. Goals:
  • prolong the work time of notebook from battery
  • increase usability of notebook keyboard
  • make presentations at conferences

Step A: First of all, enable notebook plugin (asus/thinkpad). It shows banners when you adjust brightness, volume, etc. Moreover, it contains functions used by Power Patrol (aka POPA, quick selection of power consumption mode)

 

Step B: The notebook has extra keys,
  • Some keys are supported by notebook plugin,
  • win-keys are supported by ps/2-keyboard plugin, so enable it too

 

Step C: For example, you attached AirClick USB remote control to make a presentation. airclick plugin should be enabled. When you click a button on remote control, a command is forwarded to active multimedia application.

 

Moreover

Change the volume using hot key (via Uniaud API). This is important for many notebook users.

 
 

Example 2: Barebone

You have a barebone. Goals:
  • reduce power consumption and noise
  • listen to music and radio
  • watch TV and movies

 

Step A: If your barebone is equipped with multicore processor and the cooler is loud, then enable POPA plugin. It allows switch throttling and thus reduce the load of CPU.

 

 

Step B: If using a TV-tuner, then enable plugin for the TV-tuner and its remote control.

 

 

Step C: If you have a multimedia keyboard, enable ps/2 or mmkbd plugin. All events from multimedia keyboard are catched in this case.

Moreover

Change the volume using hot key (via Uniaud API). This is important for some desktop users.

 
 

Start/quit

To start CRC click crcdmn.exe. The program is not visible and shows banners if user is sending commands only. You can always quit CRC if press Ctrl-Alt-F4.

Active application

All events are forwarded to the Active multimedia application. To change the active application, call the Menu of applications

There are several methods:

  • Ctrl-Alt-M combination
  • Menu button on remote control
  • via CRC Widget

Power Patrol (aka POPA)

You need POPA for notebooks because it allows prolong the time of work if running on batteries.

Use Ctrl-Alt-P to Change Power Patrol state (throttling and brightness are changed)

You easily switch between high performance and economical modes.
