    Pushbutton Steering Wheel Controls & Girder

    I don't want to use another device to transmit data and use an IR receiver, etc. I have 3 open serial ports, and I just want Girder to recognize when I close a contact, through the serial port, for example, the RXD/TXD pair or the CTS/RTS pair. I have the "General Serial" plugin loaded, but I am obviously missing something. It seems like it should be a simple task.

    I'm using a cheap USB gamepad... 12 digital buttons (on/off) I'll need to find keyboard/hot key emulation... but I think it's easier than what you're going for...

    maybe, not sure...

    Actually, I think you may be right. I already have 2 USB gamepads from target and never thought of just using that circuit board to integrate my "new" pushbuttons. Sometimes I just need a little kick in the *** to get me going.
    Thanks.
