Hi,
I'm using softsqueeze on my slimserver PC in the kitchen, and whilst using a wireless mouse is okay for operating softsqueeze, I wonder if anyone has any experience of an infrared remote+PC to control softsqueeze. I have a Shuttle PN31 remote for the PC, but I do not believe there is a way to 'reprogram' the keys...

Thanks.

This programming is done in the skin for SoftSqueeze. The basic
rundown of how to reprogram them:

- Find out what key codes the keys you want to use represent
- Unzip the jar file
- Edit the XML for the skin's keybinding (its very straightforward to read)
- Remove the signing encryption keys
- Use the jar command to re-pack the jar file

Another alternative would be to reprogram what the keys do. There are
several programs out their that will listen for key presses from the
special keys and have them send whatever keys you want instead. They
could then be remapped to softsqueeze's standard keyboard shortcuts.
