View Full Version : ati RW II + girder plugin = locked on girder

February 3rd, 2005, 11:04 PM
hello, i am having a strange problem, here are my specs,

Remote Wonder II
girder demo ver 3.3.7
ATI Remote Wonder Software 2.5

remote wonder plugins
base:guideplus, multimedia center, powerpoint, winamp
addedr: girder (c2004 promixis, LLC)
Girder plugins
ATI Remote Wonder (1 and 2)
ver 1.0
device #187
API ver 1
written by Ron Bessems

the problem is as follows

i install remote wonder software, and girder, then load the plugins accordingly, i set the aux1 to winamp, and aux2 to girder
at this point, everything works fine

if im on pc it controls my aiw software... and if i am in aux1 it controls winamp just fine... the problem is when i tell it to control girder on aux2

aux2 will send all the commands its supposed to, to girder... and it works fine in all my applications i have configured, but when i hit pc again
the keys dont work right and sometimes they get sent to girder

any ideas?

edit: and ps, after all that is done, i can still go to aux1 to control winamp, and aux2 for girder, but pc never works again, i have also tried setting aux3 to the various ati programs, and that doesn't work neither

Sorry I cannot recreate your behaviour but please try this version.

Just a side note installing the ATI RW2 software version 2.5 messed up my system. I'd say stay away from this thing.

messed it up how? and does the other version you use, have aux keys, they're very important to me

I was using 2.3 it used the aux keys as well. Did you try the updated plugin?

it appearred not to be much diff... same exact size (even decimal place) but it seems to work, but my origional install lasted a day or two, so i will know for sure in a day or two... what was it you changed

February 4th, 2005, 03:43 PM
also, why do you install to c:\ instead of the install path

February 4th, 2005, 03:43 PM
I changed one 1 to 0.

Just for fun.

February 4th, 2005, 03:46 PM
heh... amazingly i would not be surprised if it was that small of a fix... only thing that seemed to change was the date on the ati side

alas my joy was short lived, the problem creaped back up last night... any more ideas? only thing i have to cure it is disable the girder plugin and re enable it

I just tried RWII plugin 1.003 but it causes key repeat.
Changed back to 1.002 no key repeat.
Also I couldn't see anything new about 1.003 [apart from unwanted key repeat].
I thought AUX buttons had been added?
Remote Wonder software is latest 3.2.
BTW I did not reboot PC, I just closed ATI & girder, installed and then relaunched ATI then Girder.
