Hey Chattana, i got IMON too. How do you use it with SIMOSD?
Can you post your mappings?
1. Imon has option to launch when windows start up. So we don't have to worry about how to start Imon.
2. Imon has quick launch button. We could config to launch DD using the quick launch button. You will need to use Imon manager to configure it. Read the manual guide.
3. Make sure you enable SIMOSD within DD. Now you need to configure Imon to work with some features of SIMOSD such as EPG now, EPG next and Info. You need to use Imon Manager to add these function into DD from Imon perspective. example: launch Imon manager, click on the setting on the left handside, Select Program command, Add DD to the list by clicking on Add Program button, add function to DD by click on the Add button. Let's say function named "EPG NOW", Imon will ask you to define the short cut (Leftshift+X), and then Imon asks you to associate that function with Imon button (I use Bookmark button)
4. How it works? Great! when DD is running and you press the Bookmark button from Imon remote control, the Imon manager will pick up the signal and call "EPG NOW" function predefined in previous step. That function is simply simulating Left Shift+X keyboard, which trigger SIMOSD to show EPG now.
My my oppinion, SIMOSD wastes lot of buttons on keyboard. It works ok with keyboard, because KB has lot of button right? however, when talking about remote control, we don't have 20-30 keys to simulate...
I wish SIMOSD would do this:
Press I (info button on a lot of remote control)(or Ctrl-I or Shift-I) will show channel information plus EPG now,
Press I one more time, channel info + epg next
Press I one more time, close the information.
The other bad design of SIMOSD is that it does not use arrow key board to navigate the channel list. So to make imon remonte control work with SIMOSD channel list, you have to map the real arrow buttons of the remote control to some freak keyboard combination. I guess SIMOSD works like that because Simon actually uses the hook to catch the mouse and keyboard event and ignored the DD keyboard event signal. In my opinion, when SIMOSD shows the channel list, it should catch all the key event from DD and take lead on that, don't pass thru the event to DD.
Similar to instruction above, you could configure your iMon remote control to view DD in full screen mode - F5 function on keyboard
Similar to that, you could configure Imon remote control to launch DVBEPG - F9 funcion on the keyboard...
You also could apply the concept I talked above for any kind of remote control using Gider, or hotkey P software.
Hope this help.
