Add multimedia devices to control: List of Multimedia device components to control.

Thanks to the automatic configuration of the Remote control component, this list is already created. However, you might want to control several devices (TV, DVD, etc.) with the same Remote control which is possible. In this case, you need to drag and drop a new Multimedia device (Device 2) component to “My components” area and then drag and drop it into this multimedia device dialogue box.

Automatic group creation

As always you are asked to drag and drop the required components on “My components” area. The particularity of this component is given by the automatic creation of a Remote control group where all the necessary components for its configuration are already added (see picture on the left). Not only this, also all the required buttons of the Multimedia device are already configured in order to speed up and simplify the process of the Remote control creation, but open to your editing.
