[color=darkblue]All,
I have tried and created a solution for "[b]MediaPortal[/b]" - [url]http://www.team-mediaportal.com/index.php[/url]

This is a great application for anyone not wanting to use Media Center... Its Open Source, Free and with lot of plugins.

The script attached would control the application along with the provided functions. I am not yet able to complete the TV Controlling functions, but it can be controlled using the phone joystick (Up, Down, Left and Right). I have created and tested for my Audiovox SMT 5600

Use "0" on keypad for Back
Use "More" on screen to see more functions
Use "Action" or the joystick to enter a module
Use "Up, Down, Left, and Right" on phone joystick

[b]More Functions[/b]
----------------
Play Pause
Stop Playing
Toggle Fullscreen
Show Hide OSD
Context Menu
Volume Up
Volume Down
Mute
DVD Menu
DVD - Next Chapter
DVD - Previous Chapter
Quit[/color]

Thanks for the contribution!

Just having read your description, I have a suggestion for an improvement to make the script compatible with all handsets:

Instead of (or in addition to ) "0" for back, you may want to consider giving the Menu/More key multiple uses (click vs. hold). I'm suggesting this as not all devices have a numeric keypad.

(you can check the iTunes controller script for technical ideas on this; long "action key" presses are used to toggle the visualizer whereas short clicks are for play/pause toggling)

Again, Thanks!

Best.

Point taken... I would modify the script and upload it again

Here is an updated script for MediaPortal with few changes

- Updated launcher function and starting and quitting MediaPortal
- Added few more menu items
- Added onKeyRepeat functionality


Also adding MediaPlayerOnPhone phone event script which would notify incoming caller and pause + mute whatever is playing, and resume when the phone is idle

Thanks!

Well, I guess I'm your hero today:P hehe, well, I shouldnęt really be taking so much credit for this since graphiz made the original script. I just modified and improvid it a bit.

This script was originally created by graphiz. It has been edited a little bit to add more functions and easier use. Also, It works on the newest version of Media Player:D


Since Media Portal for some reason have been changing the registration key for the
the install-path for every version, I have removed the auto-find-path which doesn't work
if Team Media Portal edits the registration key on future versions, so now, the user[b](you)
must type in the install-path yourself. That is all needed. [/b]

These are the functions and instructions:

1: Play/Pause
2: Go to Full Screen(when video is shown in the small window in MP)
3. Stop
4: Previous
5: Media Portal Volume Up
6: Next
7: Rewind
8 Media Portal Volume Down
9: Fast Forward
*: Parent Folder
0: Switching between audio channels(for files with mutiple languages or commenteries) This requires the Haali Media Splitter.
#: Context menu

The following buttons can not be found on every cellular phone. However, if you have some buttons that is not being used by any other command, you can set them to these commands. To find the codes that Salling uses for buttons, just run the script on your phone, and press the button. If the button us not already set to a command and salling can use it, it will show a message on your computer with the code. Now, open the script in notepad or something. If you want to change the Back command, search for -8 since that is the code salling uses for the C button on my phone. Replace -8 with the code you want to set to the command. easy.
C button(-8): Back
Volume Up button(-36): System Volume Up
Volume Down button(-37): System Volume Up

Also, in the 'More' List, you can:

Next page
Previous Page
Full Screen(Note, this is not the same command as pressing 2. This commands toggles if Media Portal should be ran in a window or in full screen.
TV/PC: Toggle between using the TV/PC-screen. Well, for most of you, it won't do that, since it really just Simulates a Alt-U keypress.
Show/Hide OSD
Mute
Switch PLaylist-GUI
Delete Selected Picture
Pcture Details
Quit
Record this program.

Hello,

I downloaded graphiz & runarius script for mediaportal, but unfortunately my HTC TyTN phone has a qwerty keyboard. The numbers-keypad is only accessible through holding down the function (FN) key at the same time, much the same as normal laptops, and it simply doesnt work.

But I will try to change the script so it will work with letter keys instead of number keys. Will post back later if I succeed.

ofcourse I can... you just tell me which buttons you want to do what...

here is the original keys, give me what you want..

1: Play/Pause
2: Go to Full Screen(when video is shown in the small window in MP)
3. Stop
4: Previous
5: Media Portal Volume Up
6: Next
7: Rewind
8 Media Portal Volume Down
9: Fast Forward
*: Parent Folder
0: Switching between audio channels(for files with mutiple languages or commenteries) This requires the Haali Media Splitter.
#: Context menu

also, my phone has two more buttons which is normally used to change the volkume of the mp3-player on my phone, but in my script it is used to change the volume of the System Volume.

also, I can add functions for you, at other keys.

A little developer note from me:

You can only really count on having a d-pad and a "menu key".

You can employ long-press tactics to bind more than 5 commands to the d-pad. As this can be somewhat obscure in some cases, I recommend duplicating functionality in the "context" menu.

Best.

I am working on a new script (from scratch) with a lot more functionality. It should automatically detect when you want TV, video or music control, and change your menu to suite. It will also utilise the long-press tactic mentioned. I've still got some additions to make before I release it here, but should be within the week.

This script is much better than my previous script, and holds the media portal features as this one, plus you can set up what key you want to do what from your phone, and it has alot other features, which makes it able to control most programs at this time, also, you can add any function from any script to it and set a key to that function also from your phone:)
