January 15th, 2004, 05:46 PM

I'm a Newbie in GIRDER.

I have a remote with few keys. and I want to do the following things :
keys GO + 1 start Winamp
Keys GO + 2 start Win DVD.

How can I do that?

Thanks for your help.

Depends on your remote and IR receiver. Does this GO key work like a shift key? If it does then it will work. Otherwise your remote will only send out 1 IR command for each key press.

It's the remote control of the Hauppauge Nexus.

The go Key works like another key sendingan IR command.

this would be a neat feature, soemthing like successive keypress's
it would need a 1000ms cutoff so that it doesnt stay in memory for the next time u press the button, so u could assign the go button to be the first key and then a number in relation to other commands

have to ask a dev how to do this as im no coder :P

I've written a short "proof of concept" t9-style key entry that does something like this. PM me with your email address if interested. (Also, do a search on t9 to get instructions on the gml -- I wrote it so long ago, I can't recall exactly which keypresses I coded in.) Basically, if you press a button once, you get the letter A, if you press it twice, you get B, etc., but if you wait too long, then the current pressed letter "registers" and you go on to the next space.
