Tutorial: Feedback

Last Updated: Dec 07, 2016 01:01PM EST


This tutorial covers how to import an existing Feedback into the existing setup. Feedbacks are tied to a device with commands that are using the same format, this means you cannot use an IR based command set with feedback using RS232 or IP. Users can create and share their own feedbacks or modify existing feedbacks for their devices. Note that for full Feedback capabilities, your iOS device needs to have version 4.0 or higher.
