Keymap for Apple remote with big step (download link) - Kaiserlein - 2011-02-18 10:23
after trying to go through a looooong movie with just the 30s steps, I found a bigger step was needed for search. Also a few functions were missing with the apple remote.
So I put together a new keymap which makes the remote near to perfect for me:
changes are as follows:
up key: step forward 10 min.
down key: step backward 10 min.
press select: OSD
hold select: change language
hold menu: step 7 seconds back (in case my GF has to tell me something "important" while watching...)
all the other buttons remain the same.
Of course, the settings are only changed within playing a file. In the menu, the buttons are the same.
you can download the file here:
just put the file in: /Applications/XBMC.frappliance/XBMCData/XBMCHome/system/keymaps/
while overwriting the original one.
In case you don't like it that way, be sure to save the original file somewhere on your computer.
Also be sure when doing this, you are not in XBMC and restart lowtide afterwards (or: Killall AppleTV).

Nice work I was particularly missing the quick step back from my old xbox xbmc install.

Great share, that's exactly what was missing for me.

My suggestion is - don't. Put it in this folder for default profile:
And in this folder for specific profile :
XBMC files could be overwritten by upgrade, your custom keymaps will stay. End result is the same, with one exception - you can have custom mapping for each profile.

Made the change, good idea.

Would replacing "OSD" with "Info" give me the info screen during playback?
- Kaiserlein - 2011-02-18 16:18
@T800: yes, that would do it. But be sure you change it in this part:
<button id="5">OSD</button> (for you then: <button id="5">Info</button>)
here is the link for all the actions possible:

Quote:up key: step forward 10 min.
Nice work, but doesn't it make more sense if you did"
right key> forward
left key> backward
That is more common on remotes.
