For editing a script (manually or with the help of the Wizard) it is necessary to stop SlyControl by the button .
Setup of plugins can be carried out and at a started script, however I advise after setup of a plugin to restart a script.
The script is reloaded by the button , but not started. This button is useful when any file of a script was changed by other program (for example in a Notepad) and the script is necessary for reloading.
The button it is possible to start a script after a stop or reload a script.

1.2. It is necessary to setup the chosen plugin. For example if you use btRemote, it is necessary to choose type of TV tuner. If use UIR, necessary to choose COM port etc. By default the SlyControl is configured on work with the Remote Control from TV tuner AverTV Model 203. If at you other Remote Control, it is necessary to train the chosen plugin on this Remote Control unit and whenever possible to give buttons standard names that it was not necessary to correct scripts.

The name of keys at use WIRC / WinLIRC and uICE are set in these programs. For WIRC / WinLIRC it is enough to edit his configuration file *.cf.

Do not enable WLircSrv plugin simultaneously with WinLIRC plugin or if you use WinLIRC program.
If you don't have network card, WLircSrv plugin may not work under Windows 98 (open socket error).
