    I'm wondering if some of these would be better with icons but I also want to make sure it's clear to someone who isn't familiar.

    See descriptions below.

    All on and Live TV
    Eventghost turns my devices on and starts kodi to play live tv

    All of and Kodi off
    Stops any playback, exits kodi and then turns devices off

    Live TV
    Starts kodi if not open and begins live tv

    TV Guide
    Brings up the TV guide

    I'm not sure to understand what you want with theses buttons :

    1xApp size/2x App hide : Which app ??
    Toggles kodi between window mode (useful for keeping TV in top corner of the screen while searching the internet) and full screen. Double push makes kodi minimise.

    Skip back/Forward : it's just seeking of X second, isn't it ?
    Yes it is. Pushing multiple times skips larger amounts in kodi

    OSD : is it for subtitle
    It's for the videos info such as title, progression bar etc.

    I have attached a screen shot (from my phone, but the buttons look more square on my tablet) of a custom remote I use for Kodi.

    Just curious for some feedback on ways to present it better. I have linked to the Dropbox folder with the screenshot in it, and also the layout file in case anyone wants to just make suggested changes.

    I think the coloured buttons seem to help seperate the sections, but in a way if prefer a small section break with small titles (not loosing to much screen real estate) but not sure. May create one thin button between sections that doesn't do anything...

    Was thinking of changing the arrow keys to triangles... Not really sure.

    This is a modification to the custom kodi remote.

    Impressive. That all makes sense.

    Will give it a crack in the next week or so.

    Starting to think about looking into using a similar principle but instead of switching remotes, to make my android device play a sound file. You think this might be possible. I haven't looked mind you so being lazy.

    I am happy to have only one device connected at once if it's possible. So you saying there may be hope?

    I am using Eventghost to automate a lot of my tasks on my media PC. Eventghost acts on keyboard inputs I am creating with unified remote from my phone and tablet.

    What is slightly unusual, is that I would like to switch remotes automatically when the PC issues a command. Say I click a remote button, Eventghost does its automation in loading and closing certain apps, then Eventghost issues a keyboard or network command which unified remote server detects and tells all connected android devices to switch to a certain remote (which will be the trackpad remote).

    Is this easily achievable? I'm thinking probably not using just eventghost (issues command) and unified remote (detects the command and issues command to connected devices). Hoping not to use external apps on my mobile devices like tasker but if need be I could look into that.

    Yes it does thanks. More work to do but the concept is there

    Appears I have found out the main two errors and all is working well now.

    The first one, as already indicated, was the ; at the end of the command lines.

    And second I didn't have the local kb = libs.keyboard line at the beginning of the remote file.

    I have still not managed to try to debug further as I am not at the server. But could the lack of ; at the end of the action lines cause problems?

    I have added [email protected] to all new lines of code and will add back one by one (both the action and also the referred button on the layout) until the remote isn't imported again.

    I would still appreciate any feedback about my linked custom remote in post 1 however in the meantime if possible.

    FYI.

    I'm using eventghost to do multiple commands (with a usb uirt) when it detects the keyboard commands. Prefer to do it with strings, but wasn't sure how to get eventghost to detect the string but know eventghost will detect the keyboard commands.

    First custom remote and the server isn't loading my remote which I believe to be due to my code.

    Dropbox link attached. Is this ok?link text

    The only part I changed from the original Kodi advanced remote is in the actions section with the actions with the kb.stroke command. I suspect it's the bit where I should write "comma" rather than "," and not sure if "1" should be "digit1" instead.

    But I'm not at the server so I can't debug. Hoping someone here sees something wrong in the actions section starting from the actions.TVliveON line.

Internal error.

Oops! Looks like something went wrong!
