View Full Version : Meaning of different button-modes

Hi,

I am trying to understand how slimserver handles different types of
buttonmodes. I have found references to the following modes:

(empty)
repeat
hold
hold_release
single
double

They seem to be somewhat over-lapping to me. What is the difference
between "play" and "play.single"? Or between "play.hold" and
"play.repeat"?

What I really want to do is write a plugin that completely takes over
all buttons on the remote. I tried to do this by mapping all
combinations of buttons and the above buttonmodes to 'dead' and then
map the ones that I want to act upon to real functions. But it only
seems to work for the empty mode, and not for .hold for example.

Have you read the notes in the slimserver help section, under
tecchnical information?

There is a section on button mapping, dealing with the Timing modifiers.

No, I missed that. That was exactly what I was looking for. I read
through the wiki, but I didn't find anything there.

Thanks!
