    Ok, I'm on Win7. Is there a particular element that doesn't work, or nothing works?

    Does the standard bundled Chrome remote work?

    I can replicate, same versions.

    Ok no worries. I've compiled both the left & right scripts into executables, which means you don't have to install AutoHotkey to make them work. I can't recommend AutoHotkey enough on the side though, well worth a look at.

    Here are the executables, put them
    wherever, then remote code will look like:

    actions.move_screen = function()
        os.open("C:\\pathtoexecutables\\Move Monitor - Left.exe");
    end
    
    actions.move_screen = function()
        os.open("C:\\pathtoexecutables\\Move Monitor - Right.exe");
    end
    

    Let me know if you have any dramas.

    Yeah sorry, sloppy testing, the window had already been in position to jump monitors, I figured it had worked.

    I can't get it to work in any combination of left/right/l/r. I also tried versions of:

        kb.down("win");
        kb.down("shift");
        kb.down("left");
        kb.up("win");
        kb.up("shift");
        kb.up("left");
    

    ..same result.

    I guess needs to be reported as a bug, unless anyone else can chime in with similar experience/fix.

    The workaround I've tested successfully is to use an AutoHotkey script:

    Send +#{left}
    ExitApp
    Return
    

    Then call it in remote:

    actions.move_screen = function()
        os.open("C:\\pathtoscript\\AutoHotkey Script.ahk");
    end
    

    Are you familiar with AutoHotkey ?

    I can replicate, but playing around with it I got it to work with lwin:

    kb.stroke("lwin", "shift", "left");

    Are you on Windows?

    Which remote is it? Is it a remote you have downloaded from this forum, or have you created it yourself?

    Ok done, download here.

    Look for the new remote "Airfoil" in Media category of app.

    A couple of things to note:

    • I'm going to post this in the Remotes section of this forum, with the stream-to-speaker buttons labelled as "Speaker 1" etc, with yours I have called them "Laptop" etc.
    • The play/pause button on the generic media remote (which is where I got the code from) doesn't work in VLC for me. Just try the buttons and if anything doesn't work let me know, I'll show you how to change.

    Whether or not it will work without focus will depend on Airfoil. Usually most progs needs focus, unless Airfoil is designed to accept the shortcuts globally. But what I could do is write in an action that brings Airfoil to focus first, then sends command. See how it goes when you test it out.

    Yeah for sure, that's all we need. Can you post the full list of shortcuts you want to use, plus what each one does?

    Ahh no worries, thought you meant you were going to try VLC remote with MPC-HC, all good.

    posted in MPC-HC read more
  • nathan323

    The VLC Advanced remote wont work for MPC-HC.

    To use the new MPC-HC code, replace the contents of the files remote.lua and layout.xml with the code I posted, restart server and app.

    You'll find those files at (Windows) C:\ProgramData\Unified Remote\Remotes\Bundled\Unified\Main\MPC-HC

    ah good, I noticed those apps, I meant to mention them hah. If doesn't work out post back

    If there are keyboard shortcuts available, it's easy to make a remote. We can knock one up together.

    If there aren't, it's trickier. The buttons will need to be coded to move the mouse to each window/button one step at a time, depending on screen coordinates. It's not a great way to do things, because you have to make sure the window doesn't ever move (making the coordinates irrelevant), sometimes if there is a memory hogging moment while you are pushing the button, the mouse move wont "catch up", missing the target, etc.

    See this thread for recent talk about this.

    Best to explore Airfoil and see if there are shortcuts for the actions you want to perform..

    I can replicate "/ ;" issue with kb.press, I got it to work with kb.text:

    actions.test_keys = function()
        kb.text("/");
    end
    

    Delay should be:

    actions.delay_keys = function()
        kb.down("a");
        os.sleep (60);
        kb.up("a");
    end

    Hm not that I know of. I didn't know that Remote Creator existed, looks handy if it were a bit more functional.

    This is a long shot, but maybe the cursor can be triggered by a "mouse move" first. I've made a one button remote that will toggle mouse position between mid-left/mid-right of monitor, try it and see if it works to show cursor on after startup.

    Download

    https://www.unifiedremote.com/tutorials/how-to-install-a-custom-remote

    local ms = libs.mouse;
    
    -- @help move mouse Ubuntu
    actions.move_mouse_ubuntu = function()
        x,y = ms.position();
            if (x == 500) then ms.moveto(1300,500);
            else ms.moveto(500,500);
            end
    end
    

    Edit: I am on Windows 7 so I can't test, but do any of the solutions here work? If so I could write those into remote..

    Edit: Interaction with the HTML is something I haven't been able to work out. It got brought up here: http://community.unifiedremote.com/topic/603/soundcloud. Is that possible, to "turn on/off" certain elements, like you had clicked them? If it is, that would be superior to the following remote. The problem when you're relying on mouse movements is if the screen changes (fullscreen/not fullscreen) the coordinates of the buttons will sometimes change, making the buttons miss their targets.

    I have made a simple version to show how it will work, download here.

    Follow this tutorial to install: https://www.unifiedremote.com/tutorials/how-to-install-a-custom-remote

    Restart your device app, and server software. HBO GO should show up now in the Media category of remotes on app.

    If you go to where you installed it and open remote.lua, you will see following code:

    local ms = libs.mouse;
    
    -- @help Play
    actions.play = function()
        ms.moveto(50,1040);
        os.sleep (50);
        ms.click();
    end
    
    -- @help Rewind 30 seconds
    actions.rewind = function()
        ms.moveto(70,1040);
        os.sleep (50);
        ms.click();
    end
    

    I have just guessed those coordinates. They're roughly down in the bottom left of the screen, where those buttons are on your screenshot.
    I would then download this little program that allows you to see screen coordinates: AU3 Spy

    Then if you open AU3 Spy, then HBO GO in fullscreen, then alt+tab back to AU3 Spy, you will be able to hover over the buttons and see the mouse coordinates. Then Win+A to freeze AU3 Spy, and you will be able to copy the coordinates and replace the ones I have in remote.lua. Then test them with the remote.

    When you're ready to add more buttons, just add more blocks to the remote.lua file, then add corresponding rows to layout.xml.
    See https://www.unifiedremote.com/tutorials/how-to-create-a-custom-keyboard-shortcuts-remote for some pointers here.

    Post back with any questions :)
