  1. Hi man, sorry for late replay... The remote has easy learning function so you could just manually program the keys you need - it should be less then 10 min job :) Regards
  2. @cposada You are quite right. FIrst of all sorry if I sounded harsh, getting my thoughts out in Eng is quite challenging for me. Second of all lack of info was the reason Chris and I started this thread. That being said, If you need my help just PM me :) Once more, do accept my apologies. XBMC is open source an as such it is entirely depended on good will of people to write wiki pages and it does fall short in that regard sometimes. @outatouch0 You are welcome I guess they think if you go to those pages you will know how to use info you get there, It can be nightmare. Chris and I spent months trying to get info on kbd repeat rate before getting any info on that mater.
  3. XBMC has pretty unified logic throug whole setup. in this case if you add new config file it is to customize a part of xbmc, not all settings in that part of XBMC (it is same with "advancedsettings.xml") There is also a new addon to do this directly from xbmc, to make it more simple for people to use. If you want ot write "how to" you need to be aware that not all people will be able to use it, but only people with keyboards and flirc, if you use "standard" IR receiver things are different.
  4. Well it is all here... :) in my custom setting: Letter "c" in full screen video, you can choose what ever suites you. It is built in fuction to call script within xbmc, in my case I am calling "script.xbmc.subtitles" So if you would want just this in your kbd file it would be: Just replace "C" with what ever you want :) Have a nice flicing :)
  5. I think you are way off... Xbmcbuntu has striped down, and a bit modified ubuntu underneath XBMC, you can log to terminal and I think there is a desktop environment. Yes keyboard is "hardcoded" to xbmc, but key-presses should go through to system it self - it is logical :) XBMC only uses ones it can understand (by defoult or ones configured in keyboard.xml) "Keymap.xml" is for XBMC only it has no influence to OS (windowws, linux or any other) Here is link how to start script using keyboard shortcut But I am not sure waht you want to do? You can not run script without waking xbmc, if xbmc is a sleep so is the system. Could you provide more info pls. What kind of script do you want to run? thx
  6. How to save a string

    I guess you are on Windows, perhaps use something else for remote desktop - like teamviewer
  7. How to save a string

    why would you wont /need to do such a thing? It would be virtually impossible to to, every key has it's own code.
  8. Ubuntu Minimal XBMC

    1. check is flirc working on other system 2. check is it working with xbmc on other system ( if 1. is yes then this should be also) 3. set in xbmc "my remote sends keypress
  9. Ubuntu Minimal XBMC

    I have been using my flirc with minimal for almost a year now, happy as a baby with candy. :) You should program flirc on some other machine whre you have desktop enviroment and just plug it into xbmc machine, it should work. Maybe your USB port is not working, or not working after sleep if you are using that, you should try and plug usb KB in that port to see if KB will work OK. BTW it is not probable that you have XBMC 11 after installing with that script, if you have not changed anything you are on Gotham Nightly.
  10. Ability to change speed of Flirc

    Thank you for your inmput, but I think that won't help here. We would like flirc to send signal to system in slower rate when you press and hold down one key, not when you are taping it. I will check it out when i get home.
  11. Ability to change speed of Flirc

    @ Budwyzer, first of all thank you for your kin words. Second, I know if flirc handles input rate it will be ok, but as you say big question here is how much of signal flooding flic can withstand. We should await "arrival of creator him self" to here/ see what he thinks of this.
  12. Ability to change speed of Flirc

    So Chris! here we meet again :) Thank you for your support. One thing I forgot to write is that xset r rate [delay] [rate] also does not work. So only alternative option would be to capture input before XBMC captures it and try to reduce input speed there. For this to work one would need to know exact point where XBMC captures input , but if it is captured at "beginning" of system it would be virtually impossible to do anything. I really think this would be a nice feature to have.
  13. Hi guys :) Yes I know this has been discussed before, yes i know that keyboard repeat rate is controlled by OS but.... Currently I am running XBMC on top of Ubuntu minimal, before that it was XBMCbuntu and before that Openelec. What ever I tried it never worked, I would enter needed commands but nothing changed spped of keyboard and flirc was always same. Back when I was on XBMCbuntu I learned that keyboard repeat rate was "hardwired" inside XBMC - but i did not quite understand what it meant. I always used SSH to log into my XBMC machine and change setting from remote computer and that is way I did not understand what was happening. So to "problem". On my MBMC minimal I switch to terminal window and enter: sudo kbdrrate -r 2 -d 150 and keyboard in terminal really slows down, but if I switch back to XBMC nothing has append...speed is always the same. My conclusion is that signal is picked up by xbmc before OS can slow it down so it has no effect. :( Why I think it would be good? There are a lot of people using Openelec, XBMCbuntu and minimal (not sure how this looks on OSX and WIN OS) and lot of people use cheap remotes (like my self) which have no trannsmiter speed contol... My suggestion? _________________________________________________________________________________________ Would it be possible to implement some kind of script/ program /subroutine ...something inside flirc programming that would count number of continuous input signals and then forward every second or third to system? Sorry for my rubbish English :)
  14. Hi stony, your setting is incorrect, it should be something like... although I am not 100% sure abut "back" part <keymap> <fullscreenvideo> <keyboard> <back>info</back> </keyboard> </fullscreenvideo> </keymap> Check post in my sig you will find lot of info abut customizing keyboard + keymapedit which is developed by xbmc team to easily edit keyboard settings. hope this helps... btw. no need to ad remote section as system sees flirc as standard usb keyboard
  15. Can flirc work with eventghost?

    Hi eug7 :) when i was running my xbmc on top of win i liked using Eg because it is light, easy to configure and it has tons of options you can use.... If your play/pause is detected as keyboard press (and it should be as you are using flirc) it can be dun easily 1. activate pluginn: keyboard (configuration > add plugin > remote receiver >keyboard) make shure it is under autostart on right pane of EG. - now EG will detect all keyboard presses in system. 2. go to configuration > add macro > system > start aplication 3. new window will pop up find your executable (uper line), working directory is one that contains exe of your app (executable > d:\progs\plex\plex.exe working dir >d:\progs\plex\ ) 4. you can chose process priority if you need and set full window if needed... 5. now you have macro on right pane, press key on your remote you want to use to launch your exe 6. take that key press (event on left pane) and just drag it to your macro. So your macro should have that little wheel, app to start (lightning icon) and app to launch (black icon) That should be it :)
