Buttons to control Raspbmc

Tue Feb 26, 2013 12:17 am

Hi, I recently installed Raspbmc, I was curious if there were any resources on how to set up some buttons via gpio such as next, prev, play, stop to control the tunes.

I was using this: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?t=29962.
I was connect 5 buttons and define them as function keys F1, F2 ... in pikeyd.conf. You need to add this new keys to various parts in keyboard.xml in xbmc configurations. You can assign pikeyd keys to standard xbmc keys like "p" for play, "x" for stop... But F1... get you options to make different function in different parts of xbmc. in general they can act as up, down, left, right and select, but in fullvideo as play, stop...
