Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

Looking at this further, it seems that getting access to the RegisterRawInputDevices() API is probably something that can be done by adding a Desktop Extension within your app package and having it pass the info to your UWP app. Running a Desktop Extension requires the runFullTrust permission. Apps...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

After realizing that keyboard support is pretty much non-existant in the current HDHR app in the first place, I would like to suggest adding a few entries to kyl416's list: original list: Green Button = Windows logo + Alt + Enter [return to "Starting Page" defined in Settings] Info/Details = Ctrl + ...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

Hi nicck So, is there hope to get the keyboard shortcuts proposed by kyl146 at https://forum.silicondust.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=366584#p366584 implemented by Christmas? And do you think that SD could investigate packaging a Desktop extension with your app that would handle the "raw" inputs from M...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

Good find! Unfortunately it looks like that API is only available to Desktop apps. The HDHomeRun app is a UWP app. Looking at this further, it seems that getting access to the RegisterRawInputDevices() API is probably something that can be done by adding a Desktop Extension within your app package ...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

A good way to reach out to Microsoft so that RegisterRawInputDevices() is one day available to UWP apps might be to make a feature proposal for project Reunion?

[...] our app isn't notified of the button press. I wasn't aware of this and have not gotten a chance to try it but apparently it IS possible to get notified for those buttons but registering with RegisterRawInputDevices() See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/previous-versions/windows/desktop/windo...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

You might be better off programming the keys to the official Windows Media Center keyboard shortcuts instead of arbitrarily assigning the F13-F24 keys. Kodi is programmed to respond to the same shortcuts: Green Button = Windows logo + Alt + Enter Info/Details = Ctrl + D Live TV = Ctrl + T Recorded ...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

The power button triggers sleep mode / resume at the OS level. Not visible to apps. We agree that power button triggers sleep mode / resume at the OS level. The problem is that the app does not handle nicely Windows going to sleep and resuming. It always complains about something upon resuming, for...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

Clear does not work as expected. According to the documentation of the MCE remote, Clear, should delete the last character entered. However, the app currently handles it similarly to the "Back" button. Please change the behavior so that pressing the button deletes the last character entered instead...

Re: Having a hard time convincing family (wife) that HDHR DVR can replace WMC

I have been using this remote control since kickstarter. Never use Channel up/down, but it does work for me when I tried it. The mini bar does pop up , but the channel changes. Thanks for the feedback. Imho the mini-bar should not pop up, and the channel change should be quick. For me it takes too ...

1) We updated the UI today to treat 15*3 the same as 15.3 so you can enter a full ATSC channel number with this remote. This feature will go live overnight.
2) We will fix the record action to provide UI feedback to show what it is doing.
That is a step in the right direction. Thanks.

The Visualization, Print, Radio, Music, Pictures, and Videos buttons do not trigger key events or media control events. Nothing happens - our app isn't notified of the button press. The DVD menu, Recorded TV, Guide, Live TV, Aspect, Slide Show, and More Info buttons - same, our app isn't notified o...
