Remote control any app using virtual keys

title says it all

Postby chaumurky on Mon Aug 14, 2006 1:51 am

As far as Q,s 1 and 2 go:

1. I just created an 'os:execute' event to launch "C:\Program Files\DNTV Live!\DNTVLive.exe"
2. Then created a button to link to that event. This can be done in the skin editor for any skin you wish).

No plugins...

Then I created 'plugin:xSendKey' events for 'channel up', 'channel down', 'record' and 'stop' (CTRL:U, CTRL:D, CTRL:R and CTRL:S respectively). These, I then mapped with the xremote plugin to my remote keys. When pressed the simulated keystroke combinations are sent to the application in focus (in this case DNTVLive!). Hope this helps.

Anyway, I was able to test it a little bit on DNTVLive! like changing to DVD mode etc. and it worked for me. I don't have a card, so that's all I could do.

Art, would you mind sharing the source to the xSendKeys plug-in. I want to do something similar with a serial interface. This would sure give me a jump start.

Thanks Larry
