    Embed more than one app?

    My TV tuner i have just sux. I can use any other app/driver for it with any success. Ive tried BTwincap and other generic BT drivers with no prevail.

    Since I have to use the app that comes with it, can RR embed more than one app in a skin page?

    Also is there a program that will grab a window name? There used to be some AOL/AIM tool that would get a window name a long time ago, but unfortunatley I dont remember what it was. Anyone know one?

    Use Winspector Spy (it's 100% free)..

    How and which applications would you like to embbed at once ? Please explain...

    I'm assuming you should be able to run your TV app from the Launch screen.. It might take using/adding the Class Name onto the windowsearchstring to make it work..

    I think you may not be able to embed neither of the two windows.. the best bet here would be to add an option that exists in MediaEngine.. Run the application and hide RR, but show control buttons to exit back to RR (close etc, would only work if embedding works with it.

    I am able to embed the video screen just fine, I'll have to try the controlling app as well.
    Sorry the screenshot looks so crappy, had to take it from a remote desktop.
    (BTW this is embedding in Mediacar, using the launch button)

    This is ok, I mea, as long as you can use the controls "on top" and find a way to pull them back.. Another option would be to reduce the Area of the Video to allow space for the controls to be under it (without uing the same area of the screen). That way you could use the controls normally..

    I have been thinking for the longest time on adding support for small scripts to change settings and or execute multiple commands at once.. prob. do it later after more commands are available.

    Is it possible to create a skin page that is set up similar to frames in HTML to embed 2 apps @ once?

    If you tell me that you CAN and KNOW how to embbed that second window, I can add some bunch of code to make it possible. Otherwise it'd be kind of pointless.

    I have the Super Tv Tuner off of ebay. Works great, but no other app but that EASY TV app will work with it that I could find.

    I know its kind of pointless, but what if people made a small embedded app that controls servos or what not and they wanted that on the screen all the time, this would be really nice.

    Unless someone wants to write me a small VB app that would lock these two into a single window
