In Response To: Re: Infrared keyboard (michael davis)
Windows 98 crashes after x number of days (I can't remember how many) there is a patch to fix it, I Imagine it is a variable that tells how many seconds it has been up, and it overflows....
I too am using the ACER IR keyboard. It works like a charm. It is 25 bucks when on sale w/rebate at CompUSA. I wrote the following little app to go with it:
FULLWIN mutilation of the CD-SAVER (I have talked about this before)
This version is really cool (IMHO)
It is primarily controlled with my Little one for all remote (pretending to be an AKAI VCR)
Four modes: CD-Saver with fading to avoid burn Popup playlist selection Graphical selection of all the cd covers (this is cool) Minimization and control of my REALMagic DVD
It is far from polished, but here is the source and a compiled version http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Village/5728/fullwin.zip
I have made the keyboard simulate the remote functions to play with it numbers are numbers s stop p play m menu e exit space select The arrows on the AKAI acutally map to 4,6,8,2 so use them to play with it
Try it out, run it after CDJ is running Press one to get the graphical cover selection, move around, and press space to choose the one you want.
M will get you the menu, and same navigation as above
You will have to change the ini file to point to your playlists directory and to your MDB file
Anyone want to help me make this a real good app?
