All of our guest presenters love these. The only problem is the guest presenters keep walking off with the USB adapter. Would be nice to be able to purchase replacement USB adapters. January 11, 2013
SIMPLE ROBUST, WELL PRICED and SUPPORTED Having found this device, I compared others and this was the stand out unit. It is suitable for management so they don't need to be ultra technical to use it. It makes their presentations look slick without the fiddling around. Simple installation and setup for single transmitter / multi receiver type environments. Thanks for a great experience.

Arrow buttons not working

My remote will not advance my slide. My battery is working (checked the laser) and when I use the blank screen button it also works. The only thing it will not do is go from slide to slide.

We do presentations where there are two laptops involved, one on-stage that serves as a "teleprompter" for the speaker, another in the A/V booth that displays to the audience. The slides are synchronized so that the speaker can see his notes on a keynote presentation at his feet, while the audience is seeing images, video and hearing audio from the booth.

Can this remote be used to trigger two receivers at the same time? Also, how would this be set up? Would we just pair one remote to two different receivers in the two laptops?

Thank you!

[FAQ-417] Why does PowerPoint automatically advance my slides, move by itself, or advance multiple slides? Why does my remote change wlides without me wanting to change them. How can I solve this problem?

If you have a large PowerPoint file with many images (or high res images), multimedia elements (ie embedded movies, music, etc), and/or transitions between slides, PowerPoint may temporarily stop responding to keyboard and mouse events from your Keyspan remote and/or keyboard and mouse events from your computer's keyboard and mouse. In these cases, your button press may be queue up. When PowerPoint is ready to receive events, those queued up button presses will be sent to PowerPoint. This often causes the illusion that your PowerPoint presentation is going to the next/previous slide on its own. To isolate your presentation file as a source of the problem, create a new blank presentation with several screens. Put some plain text on each screen so that you can recognize each individual slide. Next, use your Keyspan remote to move between your slides. If your performance seems to have improved, you should go through your presentation to see what element(s) PowerPoint is having trouble with. If you continue to notice that your presentation moves on its own, please keep reading. The other common cause of this problem is interference from other remotes or other RF/IR sources (RF if you have a Presentation Remote, IR if you have a Digital Media Remote, Remote for iTunes, or Express Remote). To determine if this is the case, take your Keyspan remote and computer to a different location. If you have an IR based remote, move the remote and the computer to a different room is usually sufficient. If you have a RF remote, move the remote and computer away as far as possible (40 feet or more is preferable) to avoid RF interference. Next, connect the Keyspan receiver to your computer and take out the batteries from your Keyspan remote. Setup your presentation. If you see your presentation move by itself, you ,ay still have interference. Lastly, this could be cause by a defective remote/receiver. We have not documented a single case of this happening but it is always a possibility. If you have tried the above suggestions, please feel free to contact Keyspan for warranty repair information.[Last Updated: Sep 25, 2008]

[FAQ-471] PowerBook/MacBook Trackpad Doesn't Work When My Keyspan Remote Is Connected

If your PowerBook's trackpad stops working when you connect your Keyspan Remote's RF receiver (Easy Presenter or Presentation Remote), you probably have the "IGNORE TRACKPAD WHEN MOUSE IS PRESENT" option enabled. This happens because your Keyspan RF receiver is seen by your computer as both a keyboard AND a mouse. Since a 'mouse is present', your trackpad will be disabled. This only happens when the "IGNORE TRACKPAD WHEN MOUSE IS PRESENT" option is enabled. You should also experience when connecting any USB mouse to your computer. To disable "IGNORE TRACKPAD WHEN MOUSE IS PRESENT" on Mac OS X, do the following: 1. Go to the APPLE menu (in the menu bar) and select SYSTEM PREFERENCES. This will open a SYSTEM PREFERENCES window. 2. Select the KEYBOARD & MOUSE icon. This will show you the KEYBOARD & MOUSE window. 3. In the KEYBOARD & MOUSE window, click the TRACKPAD tab. 4. In the TRACKPAD tab, locate the IGNORE TRACKPAD WHEN MOUSE IS PRESENT checkbox (at the bottom of the window) and 'uncheck' this option (there should not be a checkmark in the checkbox). 5. Your trackpad should now work when you connect your Keyspan RF receiver. To solve this issue, simply disable “Ignore Track-pad When Mouse Is Present” option and you should be able to use your track-pad while Keyspan Presentation Remote/Easy Presenter USB receiver. Note: If you connect Keyspan Presentation Remote/Easy Presenter receiver to OS X 10.4.x machine, OS 10.4.x will detect a new external “Keyboard”. It might launch “Keyboard Setup Assistant” and try to install this new “Keyboard”. This is the new feature of Tiger OS 10.4.x. Just simply close this “Keyboard Setup Assistant”. Then you should be able to use your Keyspan Presentation Remote or Keyspan Easy Presenter.[Last Updated: Sep 25, 2008]

[FAQ-482] How To Make One Easy Presenter Remote Control Multiple Computers Can I set all three units to the same ID so that it can advance 3 separate computers running powerpoint at the same time?

You can control multiple computers simultaneously using one Easy Presenter Remote 'remote control' AND multiple Easy Presenter 'receivers' (note, this requires that you purchase multiple Easy Presenter packages - each Easy Presenter include one remote control and one USB receiver). First, make sure that your remote control can control receivers. Using one computer, connect one receiver and try to control it with your remote. Next, disconnect the first receiver and connect the second receiver. If you can control both receivers with one remote, just connect the second receiver to the second computer. Repeat the first step for all your Easy Presenter receiver. If you can't control the Easy Presenter receiver, 'pair' the Easy Presenter receiver with your remote. To do this, connect this receiver to a computer. Next, press the receiver's Sync Remote Button on the RF receiver (the button that doesn’t have a light). This will cause the red light on the RE receiver to blink. Next, press any button on the remote. This will Sync/pair the remote and the receiver together. You will now be able control this computer (and, by default, the previous computers too). If you need additional help with setting up one remote to control multiple computers, contact Keyspan for further help.[Last Updated: Sep 25, 2008]

[FAQ-486] Why is the laser pointer on my Keyspan remote very weak and not bright as it should be? What can I do about this?

The dim laser pointer usually means that your Keyspan remote's batteries are weak and need replacing. If you have just purchased your remote, please return it to your point of purchase. Please note that batteries in a Keyspan remote last about one year. You will see the intensity of the laser pointer's light dimish towards the very end of your battery's life.[Last Updated: Sep 25, 2008]

[FAQ-499] 'Keyboard identification' window appears when Keyspan receiver is connected Mac OS X 10.4

Mac OS X 10.4 includes a new feature that helps you setup USB keyboards on your computer. You will get the 'Keyboard identification' window anytime you connect a new USB keyboard that your Mac OS X 10.4 computer has not seen before. This window asks to type certain letters on the connected keyboard. The Keyspan Presentation Remote (PR-US2, PR-EU2, TSAM-001) and the Keyspan Easy Presenter are seen by your computer as a keyboard (and mouse in the case of the Presentation Remote). This is what allows you to use these remotes without installing any software. If you get this message, please close the 'Keyboard identification' window. Mac OS X will remember that you closed this window and it will not popup again. Your remote will work once you close this window. If your remote does not work, please sync/pair your remote to receiver again.[Last Updated: Sep 25, 2008]

[FAQ-502] How long does the battery last in the Presentation Remote/Easy Presenter?

The Easy Presenter's battery (CR2032) should last approximately one year under most usage conditions. To help ensure that you receive the maximum battery life, it is recommended that TURN OFF the remote by setting the REMOTE'S ON/SWITCH to OFF. The On/Off switch is located on the back of the remote. If the switch is constantly set to ON, your battery may drain over the course of a few hours if the battery is inside your remote ANDsomething is continually pressing one of your remote's buttons (ie if the remote is in a tight computer bag, objects are pressing against the face of the remote, etc.). IMPORTANT NOTE: Battery life will vary depending on usage. Keyspan's warranty service does not cover battery replacement. If your battery did not work when you initially purchased the Keyspan Presentation Remote, please return the remote to your reseller for a replacement. Additional Info: Replacement batteries can be purchased at locations like Radioshack (in the US) and at most resellers where hearing aid and watch batteries are sold.[Last Updated: Sep 25, 2008]

[FAQ-503] Do I Need Any Software To Enable F5 (start slideshow)? Does the unit that plugs into the computer have the "stuff" to activate the F5 button? Does it need any software?

The F5 key on the Easy Presenter sends out the F5 keystroke just as if it was sent from your keyboard. This does not require ANY software. F5 is typically used to start PowerPoint's slideshow mode on Windows versions of PowerPoint. F5 is also used by other presentation software to start their slideshow modes. On Macs, F5 is not a standardized to start a slide show. Because of this, Keyspan has released special software to remap the F5 command to the keystroke equivalent of 'start slideshow' in PowerPoint and Keynote. This software is optional and only need if you want to use F5 to start a slideshow in Keynote or PowerPoint on a Mac OS X computer.

[FAQ-534] Software/Drivers: Easy Presenter (Model# PR-EZ1)

The Keyspan Easy Presenter (part# PR-EZ1) is seen as a USB keyboard and USB mouse by your computer. Because of this, there are no Keyspan drivers needed in order for you to start using your Easy Presenter. Windows (98/98SE/Me/2000/XP), Mac OS (Mac OS 8.6 (or later)), and Mac OS X (Mac OS X 10.2.x, 10.3.x, and 10.4.x) all have builtin drivers. Note for Windows 98, 98 SE, and Me Users: On Windows 98, 98 SE, and Me computers, USB keyboards/mice drivers may not be installed by default (depending on how your computer's manufacturer decided to ship your system). If you get the ADD HARDWARE WIZARD tell you that it cannot locate the appropriate driver, please point the ADD HARDWARE WIZARD to point to the Windows system disk (that came with your computer) to get the USB keyboard and USB mouse drivers on your computer. Note for Mac Users: The F5 key on Easy Presenter is used to start a presentation using 'slideshow mode' on Windows. On Macs, F5 does not do anything. Keyspan has released an optional software driver that will enable the F5 key to start a slide show in either PowerPoint or Keynote.

[FAQ-564] Is My Keyspan device compatible with Bootcamp (Windows booted on Intel Mac)? Does Keyspan support Apple's Bootcamp?

Apple's software that lets you install Windows XP on your Intel based Mac, allows your Mac hardware to boot directly into Windows. This makes your Mac hardware into a 'real Windows computer'. Because of your Mac is running Windows directly, your Mac is identical to any other Windows PC. This gives you the same functionality, performance, and reliability of USB/Serial/Parallel/etc that you would find on a 'real Windows computer' (as opposed to Windows running in an emulator ie VirtualPC/Parallels). At this point, any Keyspan device that has Windows drivers is compatible with Bootcamp. Please note that certain Keyspan products are Mac only like the USA-28X (Windows never had Din8 connectors therefore most Windows apps don't know how to communicate with Din8 ports). In short, if your Mac supports Bootcamp and you have Keyspan product that shipped with Windows drivers, this will work and it is 100% supported by Keyspan. ADDITIONAL NOTE: Bootcamp, as of July 2006, is beta software. This information may change but Keyspan does not expect it to. However, this will only be determine when Apple releases Bootcamp as a non-beta software. [Last Updated: Sep 25, 2008]

[FAQ-609] Windows Asking For Presentation Remote / Easy Presenter Drivers

Anytime you connect ANY USB device to your Windows computer's USB port, Windows will attempt to install a driver and if one is not installed, it will ask you locate the drivers for the device. In the case of the Presentation Remote (PR-US2) or Easy Presenter (PREZ1), the drivers are created by Microsoft. The Presentation Remote (PR-US2) and Easy Presenter (PREZ1) are seen as a USB keyboard and USB mouse. The USB keyboard and mouse drivers are created by Microsoft and, in most cases, these drivers are already installed. However, when Windows asks for these drivers, this means one of the following: - You do not have permission to install USB devices on your computer (because your IT department has locked your computer or you are not logged in as Administrator) - Your Windows computer does not have a complete Windows installation. In this case, use the Windows system CD that came with your computer. If this CD is not available, you will need to contact Microsoft to obtain the generic USB keyboard and USB mice drivers. - You have a copy of Windows that does not properly support modern USB devices. Windows NT 4, Windows 95, Windows 98 (1st Edition) fall under this category. Windows 98 SE (Second Edition) and above (Me, 2000, XP, Vista, etc) do support modern USb devices If you have any question about this topic or need additional support, please contact: techsupport@tripplite.com If Windows is asking for your Presentation Remote (PR-US2) or Easy Presenter (PREZ1) drivers, it is because the Windows keyboa INCOMPLETE TEXT[Last Updated: Sep 25, 2008]

[FAQ-618] Using Multiple Easy Presenters In Close Proximity

Using Multiple Easy Presenters In Close Proximity By default, all Keyspan Easy Presenter remotes and receivers are uniquely paired together. In most case, you can buy two remotes and start using them in the same room (or in close proximity to each other) without any problems. However, in some cases you may find two remote/receiver sets that use the same pairing IDs. In this case, just change the ID on one of the remotes and tell its receiver to listen to the new ID. To do this, see the Changing Your Easy Presenter Remote's ID FAQ: Changing Your Easy Presenter Remote's ID Turn your remote on using the on/off switch on the back of the remote. Next follow these steps... Step 1. Press the Change ID button on the back of the Easy Presenter remote control. You remote will now have a new ID. Step 2.

[FAQ-674] The Installer package 'xxx' cannot be opened. The Bill of Materials for this package was not found.

The message 'The Installer package 'xxx' cannot be opened. The Bill of Materials for this package was not found.' means that installer.app is having problems with the .pkg installer that you have downloaded. This means that that your .pkg file is corrupted. In general, there are two causes of this problem. The original pkg file was corrupted before you received it or the pkg file was corrupted as it was extracted/expanded after it was downloaded. Since Keyspan's downloads are tested before they are posted, the usual cause of this problem (here at Keyspan) is that your file expander (ie Stuffit or Stuffit Expander) is corrupting the file. To fix this issue, we recommend that you: 1. delete all of downloaded Keyspan files (pkg files and zip files) 2. re-download the Keyspan file(s). This time, don't use Stuffit/Stuffit Expander. Instead, find the Keyspan .zip file, select the file (aka highlight it), right click or control-click on the zip file (to open the contextual submenu), select OPEN WITH > BOMArchive Helper. This will open the file with Apple's utility and create a new .pkg file. 3. run/double-click the new pkg file. If you have any questions, please contact Keyspan support. FYI... Upgrading to the latest version of Stuffit and/or Stuffit Expander can sometimes fix this issue as well.[Last Updated: Sep 25, 2008]

[FAQ-744] Differences between PREZ1, PR-US2, and PR-PRO3

Keyspan sells three different USB presentation remotes: * PREZ1 - Easy Presenter ( http://www.keyspan.com/products/prez1/ ) * PR-US2 - Presentation Remote ( http://www.keyspan.com/products/PR-US2/ ) * PR-PRO3 - Presentation Remote ( http://www.keyspan.com/products/PR-PRO3/ ) Each remote is made to serve different purposes and users however all remotes essential do the same thing - control PowerPoint and Keynote. This FAQ is a brief outline of the differences between each remote and highlight the features that makes each remote unique. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Similarities In All Models - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Every Keyspan presentation remote contains a slide forward and slide back (aka next/previous slide) buttons as well as volume control buttons for controlling your computer's system volume. All remotes contain a laser pointer button. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - PREZ1 - Easy Presenter http://www.keyspan.com/products/prez1/ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - This remote was designed to be an easy to use remote control with individual buttons for different actions. The PREZ1 is perfect for anyone using our remote exclusively for PowerPoint and/or Keynote. Since it is entirely button based, you can give the remote to anyone have them start using it right away. Buttons include: * Next Slide * Previous Slide * Volume Up * Volume Down * Mute * Laser Pointer * Black Screen * F5 (Start slideshow in PowerPoint for Windows) * ESC (end slideshow in PowerPoint and Keynote) * On/Off switch This remote uses a coin style battery and includes a dedicate ON/OFF switch (the PR-PRO3 has this as well but the PR-US2 does not). This remote does not include mouse control like the PR-US2 and PR-PRO3. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - PR-US2 - Presentation Remote http://www.keyspan.com/products/PR-US2/ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The PR-US2 was our first presentation remote. It includes mouse control with left and right click buttons but lacks the the black screen, F5, ESC. While it has volume control buttons, there isn't a dedicated button for volume controls. Instead this remote features a MODE button that gives each button a different purpose depending one which mode your are in (PRESENTATION mode vs MEDIA Mode). Buttons include: * Next Slide * Previous Slide * Volume Up (Via MEDIA mode) * Volume Down (Via MEDIA mode) * Mute (Via MEDIA mode) * Laser Pointer (must be enabled by pressing two buttons) * Mouse control pad * Left/Right mouse click The remote uses a coin style battery and lacks an on/off switch. Because of this, the remote requires the laser point to be enabled prior to using it (this is done by pressing two buttons on the remote). - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - PR-PRO3 - Presentation Remote http://www.keyspan.com/products/PR-PRO3/ - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - The PR-PRO3 is our latest remote combines the features of the PR-US2 and PREZ1 and adds some new features as well.

It includes mouse control, two types of slide control, as well as volume controls. Buttons include: * Next Slide (on the remote's face) * Previous Slide (on the remote's face) * Next Slide (via swicth on right side of remote) * Previous Slide (via swicth on right side of remote) * Volume Up * Volume Down * Laser Pointer * Mouse control pad * Left/Right mouse click * Black Screen * F5 and ESC (Press and hold F5 to ESC) * On/Off switch - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Recommendations - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Selecting a remote comes down to personal preference but there are some distinct areas where certain remotes may be better suited to you. If you need to mouse control, you'll specifically need the PR-US2 or the PR-PRO3 since the PREZ1 does not include mouse control. If you are controlling programs besides PowerPoint and Keynote, the PR-US2 and PR-PRO3 are better suited since they include mouse control. If you don't need mouse control, the PREZ1 is a great remote since it is entirely button based. This makes it easy for people to control powerpoint since there's less buttons.

[FAQ-745] PowerPoint 2003 Issue - Presenters View and Dual Monitors

Microsoft PowerPoint 2003's Presenter View mode uses the following keystrokes: Space or Right Arrow - Advance to the next animation/slide Backspace or Left Arrow - Return to previous animation/slide Page Up - Scrolls Speaker's notes up Page Down - Scroll Speaker's notes down Note: This issue only affects users that a) use PowerPoint 2003 AND b) use PowerPoint 2003's Presenters View option. If you do not use Presenter View, this will not affect you. If you press Up or Down arrow keys on your Keyboard when you are using Presenter View mode, slides will keep forwarding in Microsoft PowerPoint 2003. Since Keyspan Easy Presenter version B is preprogramed to send out Up (backward button) or Down (Forward button) keystroke to your computer, thus slides would keep forwarding even you press the backward button on the remote. The Forward ad Backward buttons on Keyspan Presentation Remote Pro (PR-PRO3 - http://www.keyspan.com/products/PR-PRO3/) is pre-programmed to send out Left or Right keystrokes to the computer, thus it works fine with Microsoft PowerPoint 2003 Presenter View or regular mode.[Last Updated: Sep 25, 2008]

[FAQ-757] Corel Presentations X3 compatibility

Keyspan's Presenation Remotes have been tested to work Corel Presentations X3. By default. Corel Presentations X3 uses the same commands as PowerPoint to navigate between slides once you are in Slide Show mode. Because of this, your can use the next/previous slide buttons on our remotes to move between slides. Unlike PowerPoint, Corel Presentations X3 does not use F5 to start Slide Show mode. If your Keyspan remote has an F5 key and you want to use that button to start a Corel Presentations Slide Show, you need to access Corel Presentations' settings to remap F5 keyboard shortcut to Start Slide Show (Corel Presentations online help shows how to map keyboard shortcuts). If you have any questions about Keyspan presentation remote's and Corel Presentations, please do not hesitate to contact Keyspan.[Last Updated: Sep 25, 2008]
