I have an account created with ParitySigner. I am trying to add an account with a QR code to Polkadot.js and transfer money from that account with ParitySigner.

However, when I read the QR code in ParitySigner for signing, I get the following error: `Bad input data.

Bad input data. input generated within unknown network and could not be processed
add network with genesis hash xxxx and encryption sr25519`.

What do I need to do to transfer money with Polkadot.js?
