    Are you talking about my remote?

    What button is missing?

    Also, there was one button that I'm wasn't sure what to map it to, if anyone knows, I'll fix my program.

    This has an aspect button, but none of the IRCODE command listed affected the aspect. Does anyone know what the IRCODE for aspect is?

    Aspect = WINDOW

    You might want to look at my remote.pyw; it's in there. "Window" is how this button was labelled when it first appeared on the peanut, IIRC, but it never did anything until it was assigned to aspect ratio control, starting with the HR10-250.

    The button you couldn't identify is also the Window/Aspect button, BTW.

    ciper: I haven't put the List button into my remote because, aside from the fact that it's not on most TiVo remotes, you can get the same functionality just by hitting the "TiVo" button twice. So "List" seems kinda pointless to me. And I have limited space in which to make buttons before the thing gets too big for some screens.

    I probably sound dumb for this, but I couldn't get your program to run and I looked at the code in 010 editor a little bit. But then I just decided to write my own. My goal was/is to put a remote in my sidebar.

    I do have python installed and I use it for pyTiVo, but for some reason your program doesn't do anything on my computer.

    Edit: The Window button has been updated.

    I fixed a couple of bugs and added animation to the TiVo button to see what people think about applying it across all of the buttons, as well as an LED to indicate successful IR transmission (similar the real remote).

    Updated Remote

    Edit: The remote is now a single .jar file for your convenience.

    jeepguy -- dying to try your app but am at a loss how to run it. i double click on the .jar file in mac osx 10.4. jar launcher opens briefly, but then closes and then nothing.

    not sure how much of a stretch this is, but asking since you are using java -- having a javascript html version where you can manually define an IP address would be amazing.

    I think the graphic need to be more compact. I tried to put my tivo remote on the scanner, but the curvature made the top and bottom blurry.

    That was my original goal. However, browsers security prevents java applets running in a browser from communicating with any IPs other than the host computer and the local computer.

    You cannot run the app from inside of the zip. You need to extract the files to a folder and then run the .jar. If that doesn't work, try this.

    I'm not sure what you mean by putting it on your scanner.

    I extracted the .jar file and the LIB folder to my desktop and can then run .jar.


    I have a flatbed scanner (Lexmark X6570) which I put the remote face down upon. With the cover up, I put a sheet of paper on top of the remote and illuminate it with the room light.

    How's this for a remote image :cool: Its from the Tivo Store.

    You're saying you do this with your physical remote? I'm not sure how this is related to the size of my program, or how how the program is blurry at the top and bottom.

    I guess I don't fully understand what you're saying.

    I was going to use the black image from their store, but it's not really a graphic. It's a photo and it has light reflecting off of it. Plus, the remote would have to be sliced into a bunch of square/rectangular images to piece them back together in Netbeans, b/c it automatically makes all of the buttons into squares.

    I scanned my tivo remote literally; but the curvature of the face prevents it from sitting flat thus the resulting image is blurred on the top and bottom.

    You can press Tivo twice but it's slower because the Tivo has to load the main menu (with all its options and the background video) and then load the list (with the current recordings and a different background video). If you have a universal remote you should try programming the list button into it and use it for a while. It's an awesome feature once you get used to it.

    When I double tap my TiVo button, it brings up the Now Playing list instantly.

    The list button brings it up even faster than instantly! It goes back in time slightly

    Make a list icon and I'll make a version of the remote for you that includes it.

    I'll try to make a good looking button.
    Here is what the button looked like under TivoWebPlus on the peanut skin

    Here is a picture of the button on the Sony remote

    Here you go.

    My button really looks like crap. I am trying to get the psd version of the buttons used in the iPhone app, so that I can animate all of them. If I get them, I should also be able to edit the text and make a better looking list button.

    The numbers on the Java version does not work.

    The numbers work, just not quite like the real remote.
    On the Java version, the numbers appear in red next to the enter button.
    It only sends the numbers to tivo when you hit the enter button.

    Jeepguy, I like the animated TIvo button, but if I could change one thing,
    I think I would have to go with ThAbtO...in making the button layout more
    compact. There's plenty of black empty space in the Java window; I would
    like to see the whole window get skinnier...this would let me make my TV
    window bigger but still not overlap the remote.

    Oh, and a better window title :) Like "Tivo Remote"

    I just updated the window title, I hadn't noticed that before. You can just re-download the same link.

    I'll look into the possibility of reconfiguring the functionality of the number buttons and making the layout more compact. If anyone has a suggestion, make a jpg and post it.

    I still haven't got a response on my request of the psd files for the buttons used in this app, so that will make animating the buttons a bit more difficult. Especially since I'm not good with graphics.
