Working with the 1.05.04_V_WDLXTV.COM_WDLXTV_LIVE-0.5.1.1, I tried with an old Nortek DVD remote and it works. I saved all button codes and made a conf file.
Tha sad/ironic part is that Eiri can't read all the buttons of the original WDTV remote (it miss all the "Arrow keys" but the left).... anyway, as i own a Logitech Harmony 300, it is not such a problem.
My questions are:
a) should it be possible to make the remote "num pad" working? I dream to be able to "inject" the numbers and the letters in the "textbox" as if it was a phone keyboard .....which lead to my 2nd question:
b) how the key counter (that number which increases each time you press the same button) could be used in conf files and/or in script files?
c) I have not understood really the previous question about folders etc (sorry, as you are already seeing, my english is bad
) so i hope this is not the same: could i program a remote button that bring me, say, to "Movie"->USB2->MyCinemaFolder from whatever "page" i currently am?
d) Could i program a button that delete the current playing file? I will use it a lot while listening music (when i find a wrong/bad version of a song) but it could work also with movies.... this should be done by scripts, i guess, but the script should know what file is playing....
e) Finally, less EIRI specific question and more "general", there's a list of available "APIs"/Global variables that a script (wannabe) writer should know? (i'm a DOS / Windows programmer, i know nothing about linux, so sorry if this is a stupid question
