What is HIP?
|HIP is a Windows-based simple and highly configurable system that can allow you complete control of up to 81 different applications with a minimum of keys (all of which may be customised). Originally written to replace the software that was supplied to control the remote control of the Vision Plus DTV card, the system has grown to allow users a variety of interfaces which provides system control when a keyboard or mouse is not available particularly for Home Theatre PC (HTPC) users.|
How does HIP work?
First HIP needs to receive a command. Many remote controls and keyboard use the Windows device called the Human Interface Parser which converts commands sent by Infrared into keyboard commands. HIP can process these pseudo-keystrokes, actual keystrokes or from other supported devices such as the Tira, USBUIRT, IRMan, ATI/X10 Remotes, HID devices (for much greater reliability) and even from the www. When a key or command is received by HIP, the input is compared with a table of user-defined values and changed if necessary before sending it on to the application.
