    Mediacar and Powermate

    Is it possible to make Mediacar work with the Powermate, such that rotating the knob moves the button with the focus around and clicking selects the button? This would offer a nice alternative to using touchscreen or remote.

    Can this be done with something like Girder?

    I am occupied to study this possibility

    but I think that it's possible, I can add 3 new shortcuts specific for powermate.

    The skin structure modification between the 1.8.4 and the 1.8.5 was also made to prepare this functionality, it remains a little work now to implement the navigation into all the interface only with 3 shortcuts

    BUMP.

    I've got a pulsing Powermate just waiting for MediaCar support. I've just tried to configure the powermate, but it doesn't appear to work. Is it me, the Powermate, or MediaCar?

    Hi,

    using Powermate is possible, I did it this way:
    Long Press = Send Key 'L' (List in Musicplayer)
    Press = Right arrow (in Mediaplayer it's "Next song", in Directory it's "Select")
    Rotate Left/Right = Volume up/down
    Press and Rotate Left/Right = Arrow up/down

    That's enough to control everything important while playing music...

    But, for sure, native Powermate Support within Mediacar would be great because it's not possible to switch between the buttons, yet.
