    VLCVidRR and dvd controls / TV

    Hi. Got two question, one regarding DVD, one's about TV integration.

    1. I couldn't find any information on how to send dvd navigation (up/down/left/right/ok/back) commands to an internal player. The VLCVidRR plugin doesn't create a new process, which I could use as sendkey target. I want to use RideRunner as HTPC, so mouse is a no-go.

    2. The skin commands documentation says:
    "TV" - Loads the TV Skin/Plugin with preset channels (Same as "LOAD;TV.SKIN")
    What plugin ? This ? http://www.winamp.com/plugins/details/138360
    TV use doesn't seem to be documented very good. A little advice would really be appreciated (channel searching, tuning, recording? etc.)

    1-Correct VLCVidRR is a plugin built-in RR's process. You can try sendkey without activate (as it's inside rr's window) but RR may get the keys first. I believe the ONLY plugin which would allow for making commands to up/down/ok menu items is MSVid.

    2-Yes, that is the correct plugin. It's mainly for Analog TV, but Digital TV works with SOME tuners.

    If I may suggest, you can get a wireless trackball or one of the Gyration Air Mouse/Remote devices -- this is the best thing for HTPC I have seen (I have one BTW) as it allows for operating ANY application on the PC.

    EDIT: You may be able to send keys to the alternative VLC plugin for 0.8.6.

    @almera: Thanks. I somehow missed the thread (the WinAMP TV plugin link in the thread is outdated, btw)

    @guino:
    1: That's sad. I'll try MSVid. Can't this feature be added to the other videoplayer plugins ?
    Just tested MSVid. Seems that plugin doesn't support ISO's, MPlayerC and VLC do, though.
    Also, just FYI (because I don't know if it's of any interest): MSVid always disables ClearType on my Windows7 desktop system, even after leaving RideRunner. I have to re-enable it manually.

    2: HOT ! A little expensive, though. I'm using the X10 v1 remote in combination with EventGhost.
