Hey I've been trying to get this working but I'm not sure exactly how. I did get the Shift Key and All Keys commands bound to my remote properly.
But I'm not sure how to assign 2 different commands to the same key. Say I make a command to open winamp, and one to open notepad. What I tried to do was learn Winamp wiht one key... then press shift and learn Notepad with the same key... but it saves the same IR code so I'm not sure how to make it check for the SHIFT_ prefix.
Can anyone help me out here? Thanks.

Never mind I figured it out. I got it workign with 3 separate buttons to increase functions now.
This program is freakin awesome... good job guys.

okay you may have figures it out but I can't seem to. How do you get the shift to work?

Did you follow the steps in the readme file?
With which part are you having problems?

Well after I bind the shift key to something (in my case the enter button on my creative remote) how do I make it so that a command uses the SHIFT_ prefix?

Have you bound all the keys from the remote to the All Keys command?
If so, every key should now be emiting two events. The original and one that has a * as the first character of the event string.
To bind the "*SHIFT_XXX" event to a command, you will do a modified learn event process:
- Make the shift state be ON
- Press the button you want to learn to the command
- Highlight the command
- Make sure the dropdown next to the Learn Event button says All
- Press the Learn Event button
- Highlight the Last Key command
- Choose "Test Command" from the Commands menu item
Last Key will repeat the previous key so it will be learned as the trigger for your command.
Does this make sense?

Crap! I r stoopid! okay so I first bound the shift key to my little enter key on my remote. Then I bound the all keys command to my little MIDI SysEx plugin. Now when I press the enter key on ym remote it gives the shift_ prefix... but wait it says that all of my original key commands now respond to both shift and normal mode what the fork?

Sorry for the double post but to be more clear... I have a key programmed for normal volume control. When I press the shift button on my remote and try to make that same key control the treble volume command it now controls both the normal and treble volumes BUT when I press the shift button I only control the normal volume? I'm close but how to I get rid of controlling the normal volume when i press the shift key? Thanks.
