    Digital input idea.

    As you are aware I am still having problems mapping my digital inputs to next-track etc in winamp, however I have had a thought today. Wouldn’t it be good if you could time the digital input and send a command depending on the length of the press. So my nexttrack key can be doubled up as nexttrack and ffwd.

    Ie press the next track key momentarily, and it sends “B” for next track
    Press it for > 1second it sends "Right Arrow" or Fast Forward 5 seconds.

    I think it may need to send "right arrow" every second or so, I'll do a quick test on this when I get home.

    What do you think? Is it possible? Would it be useful? Is it worth adding to your roadmap?

    yes, i think you would need to mimic the repeat rate in the windows keyboard settings. so you would need to send the same key "right" every x.x seconds.

      I will add this in the next release of one shortly thereafeter.

      So various lengths of digital inputs would be able to send multiple key values correct?

        This feature should also be able to be tied to outputs. For example, if you hold a button on the skin it will roll down your window as long as you are holding it. If you just tap it, it will roll it all the way down automatically (keep the output active for X amount of time).

          Yup that is also on the feature to-be list thread.

            I've had my fusion for all this time and can't figure out how I'm gonna get it to operate my power antenna. When the computer comes on I want it to cut the power to the antenna so it retracts. When I switch RR to radio I want it to restore power and when I switch to any other audio source cut power again. I know I can do this manually, but how do I automate it?

            Another automation issue is programming an event when a temp sensor crosses a specified threshold.

              Well if the power is run through a relay controlled by an output of the FB, then it will be off (not extrended) while the PC is off. Then you can set the default state to off in the software, so after the PC boots, it is still not on so it is still retracted. Then you will need to figure out how to interface with the up-and-coming COM object for RR if you want autoswitching from RR. But in the program if you click the output, it will toggle and turn on (extend).

                But if the computer is not in the car I want it to work normally, so I need to interface with a relay that is normally closed.

                  Cant you just run them in parallel?

                      Yes. Using MDX's Logic, you can do this now.

                        as Tim send, you can do this MDX.

                        In Version 2, I got it somewhat working, but I dropped it because I am trying to get MDX working out fully.
