Newbie SQ user need some help
« on: May 29, 2012, 11:49:10 am »
I purchased SQRemote HD (for ipad) and an SQ Blaster (1st gen hockey puck style).

I've been playing with SQRemote for awhile and have had the directv plugin for vera and it works great. last night I setup the blaster and love it (extremely responsive) I downloaded the SQBlaster plugin but what now?

I'm not quite sure where to go from here or how to integrate it with SQRemote.

anybody have any "how to" instructions? something I could start reading over? I've looked thru this section and just not sure how to get the ball rolling on this or what to do with the plugin.

Thanks

The blaster plugin is really only used if you wanted to automate things; some examples would be:

-Turn on or off the receiver at a certain time of day.
-Tune to a certain channel at a certain time of day.

If you don't really want to do any of the above then you don't really need the plugin; especially if you already have the DirecTV plugin already!

Now if you want to something similar to the above with your TV's etc, and you don't already have MiOS/IR plgins for them already, then you have a use case for the plug-in!
