T1 Universal System Controller
Chapter 1. Welcome
Thank you for purchasing the T1 universal system controller. The
T1 provides the perfect selection of buttons to operate today’s
sophisticated home theaters. It is the ideal solution to enable easy
control of any media system, no matter how complex, at an
affordable price. The T1 features the same programming power
and flexibility as RTI’s T2+ controller, but replaces the touchpanel
display with 21 additional keypad buttons.
The T1 takes complete control of the home theater, replacing all
other remotes. It features eight source buttons and four general
purpose buttons with interchangeable keycaps. In addition to the
12 keycap buttons, 34 backlit keypad buttons allow easy access to
frequently used functions.
Programming is easy and convenient thanks to the Windows®
based TheaterTouch Designer™ software. Because RTI’s remote
control products are sold only through professional
installers/programmers, and never directly to consumers, it is our
philosophy to not incorporate programming capability directly
into our products. Instead, we are committed to providing our
dealers with the hardware and software tools that allow them to
create re-usable programming databases and templates in the
most efficient and reliable way possible.
The T1 is capable of both infrared and radio frequency output.
Optional RF receivers are available for transmission through walls
and cabinets. The RF receivers connect to an RTI control system
for the ultimate in control reliability and flexibility. RTI control
systems provide many advanced features such as IR routing, local
macro execution, power sensing, and RS-232 control.
COMPATIBILITY NOTE
The T1 and TheaterTouch Designer software are compatible with
infrared (IR) commands with carrier frequencies between 15KhZ
and 460KhZ, as well as those commands that do not use a carrier.
This covers virtually all of the remotes that exist to date.

damage. Report any damage to the carrier immediately. Report
any equipment malfunctions to Remote Technologies
Incorporated or an authorized Remote Technologies Incorporated
distributor.
If you are having problems with your T1, please read these
troubleshooting tips before contacting technical support.
If you continue to have problems, see Chapter 5 for more
information on contacting RTI technical support.
USB COMMUNICATION PROBLEMS

troubleshoot the IR repeater system.
If you are still having problems, try adjusting the IR code
“Minimum Repeats” value in the TheaterTouch Designer
programming software.
If the IR code is executed inside a macro which contains multiple
IR codes, try inserting a small time delay before the problem code.
If there already is a delay, try increasing it.

Chapter 2. Introduction
FEATURES
The T1 provides superior quality and reliability as well as these
specific features:
!
A replacement for all of the remote controls in a home
theater. The T1 can reproduce all of the commands of almost
any other infrared remote control.
!
Customizable button keycap labels for eight source buttons
and four general purpose buttons. The T1 button labels can
be changed to match each installation.
!
34 pre-defined keypad buttons that allow easy access to
frequently used functions.
!
A bright blue backlight. The keypad is easy to read in any
lighting condition.
!
A light-weight, low-profile Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery
pack. The T1 can run continuously for several hours between
charges. Because the remote is normally used only a few
minutes per session, the unit typically will run for a week or
more between charges. A built-in low battery indicator
warns you when it’s time to recharge the battery.
!
A macro function. This feature allows the T1 to perform a
series of commands by pressing a single button. For
example, you can create a macro called “Movie” that turns
on the TV, sets the correct input, turns on the DVD player,
dims the lights, and starts playing a movie.
!
Both infrared (IR) and radio frequency (RF) output options.
You can even use both options on the same unit.
!
A built in motion sensor can automatically turn the unit on
when it is picked up.
Follow these steps to apply the Loctite #401 adhesive:
1. Apply a thin layer of the adhesive to the entire top
surface of the desired keycap button.
2. Press the desired keycap over the button.
3. Press down firmly on the keycap for 15 seconds.
Repeat these steps for each keycap on the T1.
PROGRAMMING THE T1
The T1 is programmed using RTI’s TheaterTouch Designer software.
RTI dealers can download the software for free at:
www.rticorp.com/dealers
A PC running Windows® 98SE or higher with a USB port is
required. The required USB cable is included with the RTI IR-PRO
dealer kit.
Note: The T1 will not operate normally while connected to a
PC’s USB port. Make sure you disconnect it from the PC to
navigate pages or transmit commands. In addition, the T1
will not be able to sync with a PC’s USB port while it is
transmitting a command or running a macro.

IMPORTANT NOTES
Please read these important notes about the T1:
!
The T1 should be placed in an area where it is around
normal room temperature (between 60°F to 90°F).
!
Do not let the T1 get wet. It should not be handled with wet
hands or placed in an area where it could get wet.
!
Do not subject the T1 to smoke, dust, or vibrations. The unit
may be damaged from excessive shock or vibration.
!
Only use the power supply that is provided with the T1.
Using the wrong type of power supply may result in
damage to the battery or electronic components.
!
Do not disassemble the unit. The T1 contains a high voltage
backlight circuit that may cause injury if contacted.
The eight source buttons at the top of the T1 keypad have a special
function, so they behave differently from the other buttons. These
buttons are used to select the active source “page”. Whenever a
source button is selected, all of the other buttons on the keypad
will switch to the programming associated with that page. In
order to indicate the active page, a blue LED is always illuminated
behind one of the source buttons.
Despite their special function, the source buttons can be
programmed to run commands or macros in the same way that
the other buttons can.
USING THE KEYCAP LABELS
The T1 includes three sets of 32 keycaps. One of the sets are labels
for Sources, and two of the sets are labels for Functions. The desired
keycaps should be individually cut-out with a scissors:
CLEANING
Occasional cleaning may be required, depending on use. To clean
the T1, lightly dampen a lint-free cloth with water or mild
detergent and wipe the keypad and outer surfaces.

BATTERY AND DOCKING STATION
Front
Charge Contacts
The T1 uses a Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery. This battery does
not exhibit any type of “Memory Effect” from being charged too
often. Since the T1 can safely be charged after each use, a docking
station is included for convenience. If left out of the docking
station, the T1 will remain in sleep mode for 1 – 2 months before
shutting down. At that point the battery must be recharged.
If the T1 battery capacity is reduced to approximately one hour of
remaining run-time, the Status LED will illuminate red while the
unit is powered-up.
The T1 Docking Station can be placed on a flat surface such as a
shelf or table, or it can be mounted to a wall using the mounting
holes on the back of the unit.
The docking station LED illuminates to indicate a charge in
progress. The LED will turn off when the battery in the unit is
fully charged.
A fully discharged battery will take approximately 2-4 hours to
completely re-charge.

IR CODE PROBLEMS
If you are using an IR repeater system, make sure it is working
correctly with the original OEM remote. If not, you will need to
troubleshoot the IR repeater system.
If you are still having problems, try adjusting the IR code
“Minimum Repeats” value in the TheaterTouch Designer
programming software.
If the IR code is executed inside a macro which contains multiple
IR codes, try inserting a small time delay before the problem code.
If there already is a delay, try increasing it.

T1 Universal System Controller
Chapter 1. Welcome
Thank you for purchasing the T1 universal system controller. The
T1 provides the perfect selection of buttons to operate today’s
sophisticated home theaters. It is the ideal solution to enable easy
control of any media system, no matter how complex, at an
affordable price. The T1 features the same programming power
and flexibility as RTI’s T2+ controller, but replaces the touchpanel
display with 21 additional keypad buttons.
The T1 takes complete control of the home theater, replacing all
other remotes. It features eight source buttons and four general
purpose buttons with interchangeable keycaps. In addition to the
12 keycap buttons, 34 backlit keypad buttons allow easy access to
frequently used functions.
Programming is easy and convenient thanks to the Windows®
based TheaterTouch Designer™ software. Because RTI’s remote
control products are sold only through professional
installers/programmers, and never directly to consumers, it is our
philosophy to not incorporate programming capability directly
into our products. Instead, we are committed to providing our
dealers with the hardware and software tools that allow them to
create re-usable programming databases and templates in the
most efficient and reliable way possible.
The T1 is capable of both infrared and radio frequency output.
Optional RF receivers are available for transmission through walls
and cabinets. The RF receivers connect to an RTI control system
for the ultimate in control reliability and flexibility. RTI control
systems provide many advanced features such as IR routing, local
macro execution, power sensing, and RS-232 control.
COMPATIBILITY NOTE
The T1 and TheaterTouch Designer software are compatible with
infrared (IR) commands with carrier frequencies between 15KhZ
and 460KhZ, as well as those commands that do not use a carrier.
This covers virtually all of the remotes that exist to date.
