This post would probably be better of in the offers and wanted however due to this being my first post i am unable to post there. 

Hi guys,

I purchased a bitwise controller (the bc4) on trademe a year or so ago with the belief that i would be able to program it myself and use it to control a home theatre setup i was installing for a friend. As it turned out a logitech 1100i was a better option for the setup and the bitwise box was put away in the cupboard. 

Having now done the research i should of done before buying the unit, I have found a registered dealer with access to bitwise software must program the unit. 

Does anybody know of a geekzone community member who has experience with Bitwise and may be able to help me out with getting it up and running. ( happy to pay). 

Cheers in advance and feel free to comment about the bitwise system itself.

I have one of these, good box. 

You can download the software yourself. 
Run it on any windows system, find your device on the network, update the firmware and you're set.

You can, but they are only icons and layouts. 
You can find millions of icons online for free. 

The programming will be custom based on the hardware you are running, via serial and IR connections.
