Basically in order to control ChrisTV Software, you need an application that receives and process the signal from remote control (as the remote applications that came bundled with the TV Card) and then sends keyboard shortcuts to ChrisTV window. (Here you can see a list of ChrisTV Shortcuts : http://www.chris-tv.com/keyboard.html)
1. Applications bundled with TV Cards
Some TV Cards come with a remote software that can be configured to work with third party applications like Winamp, ChrisTV etc.
In this case is very simple you only have to define a custom profile for ChrisTV.exe file and assign for each remote button the keyboard key that should send to ChrisTV Window.
Example of this kind of applications are :
Pinnacle PCTV Remote - comes with any Pinnacle TV Card.
Code: Select all
Go to ChrisTV Folder\Remote Control Files folder - and read the pctv_remote.txt file- Addon to the PCTV Remote Program - profiles.ini (read inside for more details).
ASUS Remote Master - comes with the Asus TV-FM Cards.
Terratec Cinergy Cards
