I'm trying to setup my whole house audio keypads (B&K CT600/CK 1.1) to control a Squeezebox and am missing a few details. I think I can probably get to where I want to be just by assigning remote control key presses to commands but need:

1) if I create a custom.map file and place it in server\IR, is it loaded after Default.map and override the settings specified in Default.map?

2) how do I find what commands can be used within the .map files? For example, I'd like to setup a button to execute random play songs with a single keystroke but random play is only available through a menu and not the remote.

Thanks,
Ray

this will start random tracks with holding the shuffle button.


shuffle.hold = modefunction_PLUGIN.RandomPlay::Plugin->tracks

Thanks, how about these?

1) start next playlist
2) start previous playlist
3) sleep in 60 minutes

I've always wanted a 'Continue' button (continues album of current random track), but think a plugin would have to be written first.

Good luck.
