Got it all working, thanks.
I used the copy bubble app that stores everything you copy so I was able to map my entire remote pretty easily.
As a suggestion, it would be nice to be able to choose a default way of exporting rather than always having to llok for the clipboard thing.
Me again. A lot of posts but your app is so amazing, I see new functionality for it all the time :)
Now, I want to capture the IR signals from a remote with my HTC one M8. It works really well when I'm customizing a widget button but sadly I can't copy paste the code so I can't set up my full remote on my PC with the codes. (It will have a lot of buttons)
SO, what can I do, do you know of other apps that can do this?
I'm setting up a Samsung Tab4 as main remote. I would like to use peel remote to control my STB because it already has a pretty neat layout and works already with it.
For everything else, it will be in unified remote. My starting point will be a unifiedremote that selects what I want to do (Netflix, plex, TV...). Each button will select the correct input and launch the correct remote.
For live TV, I'd like to launch the peel remote application. I'v read the github page on device command and library but haven't seen the code for launching a specific app. Any pointers?
Oh I know I need to learn some coding to get this going and I've been pouring over the example remotes on github but I don't think I've seen one with a plurifunctional button.
So just to make it sure, which of the following would be the good way for a button to launch spotify and mute at the same time (example)
actions.launchandmute = function() os.start("%appdata%\\Spotify\\spotify.exe"); actions.command(CMD_MUTE); end
actions.launchandmute = function() os.start("%appdata%\\Spotify\\spotify.exe"); end actions.launchandmute = function() actions.command(CMD_MUTE); end
Thank you for your help and if you have an example of a remote doing this kind of thing, I'd like to see it. Also, I'm not sure I'm grasping the whole "events" thing with the pre and post actions. Do you have an example remote using those?
Truly a newbie here but from what I read on https://github.com/unifiedremote/Docs/blob/master/controls/button.md#properties
Set a custom image to use. Should be an absolute path or relative to the layout file.
<button image="img.png" />
I've tried looking for similar posts but I haven't been successful.
I will control my HTPC/AV system/STB through unifiedremote. I would like to have a startup widget that will control the whole thing. I have a tablet with IR built in so I can control everything.
So for example, I would like to have a Netflix button. That would switch the AV input to the HTPC, launch the Netflix app and launch the Netflix remote.
The TV button would switch the input to the STB and launch the STB remote.
And on and on for the other things I want to do.
I haven't played around with the server but what I wanted to know is whether we can assign more than once action per button. If so, how would it look in the programming, just a line jump? I have little to no experience in coding but pretty tech savvy.
Thanks for the help everyone!
