    Need help from the pros...PAC SWI - ATI RF RECEIVER - Girder .. Is it possible?

    Ok, I have searched everywhere trying to find an answer to this so please, no flames. You get to a point where you just get tired of searching forever.

    I have an old working ATI remote wonder usb rf receiver. I am about to install the PAC SWI-X steering wheel control interface in my car.

    My question is this, is there anyway I can utilize the ati receiver to relieve input from my steering wheel controls to send keypresses to my carpc using girder?

    Thanks in advance to all who respond.

    try the usb uirt and it will work using girder for steering wheel. the rf will not work because it needs ir signal.

    Mohamedali is right,

    I am using the SWIX and UIRT solution for the exact purpose your talking about (take a look at my worklog).

    seems excessive to go from steering wheel buttons, decoded by the $75 SWI-X, then transmitted via IR to a USB-UIRT (or any other PC IR Reciever) and then simulate button presses via software (Girder) to control your system, when devices such as the RC JoyCon will read the Steering Wheel buttons, and act directly as a keyboard to the PC.

    Yeah.....And how long exactly has Joycon been around? I have this setup for two years. Joycon looks nice. Are you using it?

    I don't have steering wheel controls, so no, i am not using the joycon. As for 2 years ago, you are right, it was not around. That is irrelevent though, as this thread was for bambam, who is just working out how to use his steering wheel controls, and the joycon is currently the cheapest and best solution.

    I need help installing a SWI-X w/ Girder + Centrafuse. Maybe this can help the OP.
    I installed:
    - The SWI-X
    - Girder 3.4
    - Igorplug.dll
    - USB-UIRT IR receiver & plugin
    - mapped all the hotkeys in CF

    Now, it works, but one of the buttons didn't learn properly (volume +), so I learned the buttons again, and the second time all of the buttons learned except track up. It seems every time all the buttons learn except one or two. I tried longer keypresses, different modes, stc, but I can't get the damn thing to work. Does anyone know how to reset it back to factory and learn it again, or what mode do I need it to be in for a USB-UIRT? I'm getting pretty frustrated. Please help.

    Hey, for you to get this to factory just press the mode button and start the car. I don't know why u will want to do that but this is the same setup I have. Just make sure that you are getting the amount of pulse from the light when the car is on acc. e.g most car works with 3 pulse but it depends on your car. What i did is getting an old IR remote and setup it on your laptop or desktop and make sure all the function work. Now take it to car with the same remote put the car on acc. press the mode button the light will come on then press one on the steering wheel the light will go off. Now the right light will come on then press the remote button with the same function and you're good to go. In short you're mapping the steering wheel with the remote function. I have the invert in girder turn off and all the buttons use the keyboard function. Hope this help.
