Hi Guys

I have now got a stable version of remote support for FireDTV, this is more of an add on to MediaPortal as it mimics the MCE remote.

I have also setup an interface to make it easy for additional remotes to be added.

Remote support?

Hello!

I tried to add this plugin to my Mediaportal program. I first installed Mediaportal 1.0.2.0, then latest CVS (06-16-05), then I copied files from you archive file that includes those remote control files. After that I configured Mediaportal and enabled FireDTV remote control. I closed RC and CI programs before doing that. Then I restarted Mediaportal as it prompts and nothing happens. Remote don't work. Then I tried to put on that advance beta mode, but still nothing happens... What should I do?

Best regards,
Kari

It's already included in the latest CVS versions.

Hi Guys

I have submitted a patch to Sourceforge.

1.) Better logging
2.) Better Exception Handling.
3.) Updated DLL Interops.
4.) Response issues.

Please make sure that the fireSATAPI.dll file is in the mediaportal directory.

I could not get this to work until I had a look at the sources, and found there is a naming problem regarding the XML-entries in MediaPortal.xml.

In Configuration/Sections/FireDTVRemote.cs (204-206) the following is used to store the configuration:

Code:
xmlwriter.SetValueAsBool("remote", "FireDTV", checkBoxFireDTVEnabled.Checked);
xmlwriter.SetValue("remote", "FireDTVKeyFile", textBoxFireDTVKeyFile.Text);
xmlwriter.SetValue("remote", "FireDTVRemoteName", comboBoxRemoteControl.Text);

In RemotePlugins/FireDTV/FireDTVRemote.cs (75-77) the following is used to load the configuration:

Code:
_remoteEnabled	= ((xmlreader.GetValueAsBool("remote", "FireSAT", false)) && (_FireSAPapiFound));
_FileName		= (xmlreader.GetValueAsString("remote", "FireSATKeyFile", "FireSATKeyMap.XML"));
_RemoteName		= (xmlreader.GetValueAsString("remote", "FireSATRemoteName", "FireSAT Remote Control"));

When I changed the load to match the save, the remote control worked like a charm. I can't get the buttons 0-9 to work, but I will have to look at that some other day, for now its workable.

Hello

The integrated FireDTV remote plugin in 0130 (and its CVS) is OK :)
All works nice :)

Don't forget 2 things :

-> Copy FireSatApi.dll
from /program files/FireDTV/Tools
to /mediaPortal/

-> Close RC icon (Remote Control) in right task bar

I guess from this, that the mapping steps basically work. Please try to map some of the keys you mention to be not working and upload the log files afterwards. Maybe @Brownard can see something and a solution can be found. Please open a thread in the OnlineVideo section for this, we should not mix 2 topics in one thread.

I think I've solved the remote button issue, there was an unknown driver in Device Manager which I discovered was the Serial IO GPIO driver. Installing that appears to have solved the remote problem. Who knew? Thanks to all who contributed to my solution.
