    1. What is JP1?
    JP1 is a home-made process that you can use to re-program your UEI remote
    (ie, One For All and Radio Shack brands) from your PC. Not only does it
    allow you to manage your macros, etc in a much easier way than doing it
    on the remote itself, it also lets you overcode some of the silly
    restrictions
    that are programmed into these remotes and it lets you add upgrades which
    let the remote to control devices it would not otherwise control.

    2. Why Do I Need JP1?
    If you have a JP1 compatible remote, but it doesn't control all of your
    devices, you need JP1 so you can add upgrades which will let your remote
    control those devices. While some UEI remotes are equiped with modems
    that allow you to download upgrades over the phone (or web), this only
    works if UEI has already developed an upgrade for your un-supported
    device. With JP1 you don't need to wait. In most cases, someone else
    has already developed an upgrade that you can use, and even when
    there's no upgrade available, you can easily create one yourself,
    as I will describe in this document.

    3. What Equipment Do I Need?
    Well, for starters, you need a JP1 compatible remote, these are
    remotes made by UEI. The two main brands that you will find in
    the stores are ‘One For All' and ‘Radio Shack', but there are
    several other remotes out there that are also JP1 compatible.
    To see if your remote is JP1 compatible, open up the battery compartment
    and see if there's a 6-pin conenctor in there. If you see 6 holes rather
    than a 6-pin connector, you remote probably needs extra parts to be
    JP1 compatible.
