I have a USB-UIRT, I have been able to successfully get a TiVo remote to control BTV. But I cannot figure out how to have Girder transmit a signal to turn on/off the TV and other Stereo components.

You have to add an action from the usb uirt item on the action tree on the left. Do you see it?

Which action do I add? I do not have a usb uirt folder under the action tree on the left. I have looked through all the folders on the left and do not see any mention of usb uirt. I have the usb uirt driver checked under settings-plug-in settings. Should there be a folder on the left under actions?

you are using the G4 version of the plugin (it comes with G4)?
