    Default Macro or Script??

    I am working on a .gml to control ATI's Multimedia Center TV for an old TV Wonder card I have. The problem I am having is there is a loud "pop" from my speakers when changing channels. I'd like to fix this using a Girder Macro, or a script...whichever is better suited for this application. This is the order I'd like things to happen:

    1) Wave Volume is muted when "CHANNEL UP" button is pressed down
    2) Channel is changed up (by keyboard <UP>)
    3) A small pause for the channel to change
    3) Volume is unmuted when "CHANNEL UP" button is lifted up (after the pause)

    I can get all these things to happen individually, by not in the specified order.

    What do you think the best way to do this is? should I be using a macro, a script, or something else?

    Thanks!
    Luke

    Use two macros, oone triggered by the key that you will use for channel changes (the key DOWN event) and a second one that is triggered by the key UP event. The first one should have actions to mute the volume then change the channel and the second should use a simple timer of 500ms or so and then unmute the sound.
    Beware of the robot.
