PhoCo and MCE (now working)
Anyone here using phoco and MCE together?
I have a mediacenter laptop and i want to use phoco as the remote instead of the bulky remote that comes with it.
I have it setup now and everything seems to work fine except one little thing i was wondering if anyone could shed some light on.
the enter key dosent seem to be consistant. Sometimes it works sometimes it dosent, but only this key. Basicly you can control MCE by using the arrow keys and enter key and thats all you need (hint hint to frontends).
When look at hte list of availble commands in phoco, it dosent list "ENTER" as a choice, but uses "RETURN". Im not sure if this is the same. In other apps it seem like the enter key but inside MCE it only works for menu selections, but if i select an item and hit enter from PhoCo it does nothing, but i hit enter on the keyboard it works.
So, im wondering if there is some issue with how PhoCo is sending the enter command. Is there a difference with Return or Enter?
And is there any other way to simulate the enter command?
problem fixed: or workaround found.
Im using autoIT (a windows scripting app) and i made a simple script that just sends the ENTER key to whatever is in focus.
I then changed my keymap im working on for MCE to run this script instead of sending the RETURN command from phoCo.
Works like a charm
If anyone else is interested in the MCE keymap im working on, ill post it up when im done.
just a thought, you may want to promote phoco for use as a MCE remote.
Im sure there are a lot of MCE users out there, that may have bluetooth phones (but no real use for PhoCo) and not even know they can use there cell phone to fully control MCE instead of that huge remote that comes with MCE.
And someone can make a skin for PhoCo that matches MCE (hint hint), ill let you know when im done with it.
