    Can steering wheel controls do different things in diffent screens?

    Would there be a way to have steering wheel controls (via JoyCon) do different things depending on which screen was in focus?

    I'm using eLite Wings with a few modifications as my front end.
    I currently have an entry in keytbl.ini to do a NEXT or PREV which gives me next or previous song no mater which screen is displayed.
    I'd like to use the same steering wheel control button to jump to Next/Pervious Artist when the Audio_Browser.skin is in focus.

    I hope I've described this well enough. If anythings unclear please let me know.
    Thanks,
    davidk

    Here are the modifications I've done to the Audio_Browser.skin to have three buttons that do what I want. Play Next, Current or Pervious of what's displayed in the iList.
    Code:
    [ SIDE MENU LABLES  ]
    L,133,389,96,18,255,255,255,12,"HandelGotDLig","=Prev Artist","CENTER"
    L,113,455,122,18,255,255,255,12,"HandelGotDLig","=Play Selected","CENTER"
    L,93,522,109,19,255,255,255,12,"HandelGotDLig","=Next Artist","CENTER"
    
    [SIDE MENU BUTTON COMMANDS ]
    B,134,349,133,59,"UP||CLEARLIST||ADD1||UP||PLAY",
    B,126,414,141,60,"CLEARLIST||ADD1||UP||PLAY",
    B,112,479,155,62,"DOWN||CLEARLIST||ADD1||UP||PLAY",

    sure...
    just add this to your exectbl.ini:
    "NEXT","UP||CLEARLIST||ADD1||UP||PLAY",Audio_Brows er.skin
    "PREV","DOWN||CLEARLIST||ADD1||UP||PLAY",Audio_Bro wser.skin

    Yes there is, you can change buttons actions by source and screen. Here is simple sample.
    You need commands in KeyTBL.ini, like this:

    *179,"$CMD1$"
    *176,"$CMD2$"

    Then to ExecTBL.ini what command should do. here is sample if you wanna change commands by source:

    "ONSOURCECHANGE","REMOTECMD"
    "REMOTECMD","BYVAR;ACTIVESOURCEID;NOCMD<<REMOTERAD IO<<REMOTERADIO<<NOCMD<<NOCMD<<REMOTEAUDIO<<REMOTE VIDEO<<REMOTEDVD<<NOCMD<<REMOTEDVB"
    "REMOTERADIO","SETVAR;CMD1;FREQ+||SETVAR;CMD2; FREQ-"
    "REMOTEAUDIO","SETVAR;CMD1;FFWD||SETVAR;CMD2;F RWD"

    If you want change commands by screen then like this:

    "ONSCREENCHANGE","REMOTEBROWSER",AUDIO_BROWSER.ski n
    "REMOTEBROWSER","SETVAR;CMD1;SELECT||SETVAR;CMD2;B ROWSE"

    You can add CMDs as much as you want or as many buttons you have in steering wheel.

    If you have steering wheel controls I don't think there's an alternative to the Joycon.

    I still stumble with all the commands and options in RR but this worked first time.
    Get it. You won't be disappointed and it's so nice to have the buttons work. You don't have to look at the screen to change songs or whatever.

    I don't have joycon. I use an arduino. works very well and I can make it do anything I want with RR RDK and .net

    Mine does different things depending on what rrscreen I'm on or if other applications (my own stuff) have view. Long presses on the SW buttons do different things as well.

    FTR, joycon will be easier to get started with for most.
