Rasbmc + Apple Remote (Silver Edition)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I'm using Rasbmc on my Rasperry Pi with Flirc and Apple Remote (silver).

 

I've configured Flirc on Windows 7 using version 0.96 and controller 'XBMC' as shown in the attached file.

 

How can I use the volume up/volume down buttons during playing a video without loosing the existing configuration?

How can I use the 'informaton' button (to see codec) during playing a video without loosing the existing configuration?

 

Is it possible to use one button on my Apple Remote for different keys in XBMC depending on the area in Xbmc? (e.g. Video, Settings, ...)

 

Regards,

Christian

Yep 

 

You'll need to be editing the keymap.xml file - it's not that hard. A great forum user make this thread: 

 

If you get stuck feel free to post questions :)

Umm... in theory yes but I've never managed to find good keymap information on plex's wiki.

 

They share a lot of code with XBMC (as they were derived from it) but they do have the habit of soft-disabling features so you have to do more digging around to find them.

 

I'm beginning to think I should contact Elan (or Plex) and get some solid info about these things - I think it just so happens that most users on here use XBMC

I'd love some help setting up my flirc with my white Apple remote.

 

I'm using Rapsberry Pi with OpenELEC 3.2.3.  Tried putting file https://github.com/xbmc/xbmc/blob/master/system/keymaps/joystick.AppleRemote.xml in /storage/.xbmc/userdata/keymaps/ with original name and renamed to keyboard.xml with no success.

 

Using flirc software on OS X I was able to assign actions to all 6 buttons but only one to one while I need actions to depend on XBMC interface area.

 

I also have a silver remote with 7 buttons (if that helps).  Thanks.
