  • Street Deck and iBus interface

    Hello everyone !

    Now I am testing StreetDeck and so far I found some strange in my opinion problem. By the way, sorry - English is not my first language

    So far - I am using iBus interface and iBusComm application which basically decodes steeringwheel buton's presses in to keyboard presses. It works the following way: you setting up in ibusscomm.ini file some keyboard button for specific button pressed on the steering wheel and also setting up the window to which these keyboard presses should be send. For example if I set as a receiver windo Notepad and as Volume Up and Volume Down buttons "U' and "D" than after I start notepad and press VOL + or VOL - on my steering wheel I will have these symbols (U and D) printed in notepad.

    So far when I am trying to work with SD it does not work for some reason. I setted U and D as a hotkeys for Volume Up and Down and when I press these buttons on the keyboard volume changes but when I am sennding these commands thru ibusscomm application SD does not react on these presses.
    Of course all my settings are correct. I checked all of them many many times and did many different expreriments before post all this here. So maybe some one who had an expirience with ibuss and SD may help me. I know that there is similar problem with Centrafuse Maybe SD somehow prevents receiving messages as a keyboard shourcuts (buttons) from outside (from applications ) ? Please help.
    Thank you

          sorry for long delay...

          Here it is. I have the following mapping:
          < - F1
          > - F2
          - - F3
          + - F4

          You will have to go to SD and update the shortcuts there.

                  I use this interface: http://www.reslers.de/

                  and this software IBusCOMM http://sourceforge.net/project/showf...group_id=81372

                  Once you get that you can use the ini file I posted above and get the SWC buttons

                        I have tried your .ini and did not get it working All what I did was: renamed your ibuscomm.txt to .ini, changed comport to my one, changed shourcuts in SD to "F1, F2, etc) So far I can see in Ibuscomm application how it receives commands from my steering wheel but nothing transfers to SD When I press the same F1 F2 F3 F4 on keyboard it changes appropriate settings (volume, FF, REW) in SD. What can it be ? Maybe you can share with me your ibuscomm.exe file. Maybe my version of ibuscomm is outdated ? Also I am under WinXP Embedded. Maybe some component from Windows is missing ?? (Some component which will allow ibuscomm to communicate and transfer shourcuts to StreetDeck ? )
                        Please help. It is a nightmare to have such nice frontend and do not have ability to control it from steeringwheel
