View Full Version : One Firefly remote working 2 computers

December 17th, 2007, 06:35 PM
Background & Configuration: I have 2 PCs. Each one with a Firefly remote on different channels (3 and 12)...hence 2 remote. I have Girder 3.3.1 installed on each. Each file is pointing to a different .exe on the C drive...that is assigned to the Firefly button (via the learned event of the firefly button for a command - launch application).

Problem: Whenever I press the button to launch the application (Firefly button) on computer 1, the different application on the two different computers (computer 1 and computer 2) are launched. This is true for the other computer...it launches both applications on each computer....also all other commands (up, down, left, right, etc.). I do not want this behavior.

I believe the RF channels are working independently because if I launch Firefly on both computers and press the Firefly button on Remote COntrol #1 for computer #1, the Firefly application is only opened on computer 1.

The problem only occurs when I launch/run the Girder software.

I want each remote to work independently in the same room for each computer. What do I need to do to make this work?!? Thanks...

IIRC the default for the Snapstream is to have all channels enabled. You have to go into the drivers somewhere to set it up to respond to only a single channel. I don't remember how to do this in Girder 3 as I'm on Girder 5 now but look around and you'll find it.
