NEED HELP!!! NEED TO CONTROL HTPC VIA HARMONY ULTIMATE!!
Ok I have read all 56 pages of this thread. I am looking for the best way to control my PC via my harmony ultimate. I need to be able to control the mouse pointer as well.
I have looked up many ways. I am aware of the use of ps3blumote that can be found here:
(see message 3 of 30)
But that does'nt suit me as mouse control is limited or non existent.
I am now experimenting with the purchase of a cheap MCE edition remote, namely an Ortek one. I still believe I will have trouble with mouse control, I will need help uploading the mouse Hex codes I have read about here:
(see message 15 0f 20)
(see post 3)
This is the remote I have purchased and are waiting for delivery:
I have also purchased this if all else fails:
I am hoping that the Ortek Hex codes have already been updated but I wont know until I get the remote and try it!
There is no explanation as of to how the mouse is controlled though, whether it is using a numerical pad or the direction keys on the logitech remote.
The ideal scenario is to control the mouse using a cursor on the touch screen, much like the Wii function. I have managed to pair a Wii remote with my PC and have found software to control the mouse with the Wii remote, however, I have not been able to pair the Logitech remote (Touch remote that comes as part of the Ultimate package) as a Wii remote with my PC. It does not get recognized by bluetooth. It must be to do with the device code.
I really would like to be able to control the mouse using a cursor on the touch screen but I'm unsure of any way to do this!
If this cant be done I am happy to use the Ortek remote solution I have found but again I will need help on the Hex codes for mouse control and even then, Im not sure how the remote will control the mouse!
Are gestures to control the mouse able to be created to control the mouse once I find some form of solution?
I have had mega trouble finding info on anyone having great success controlling their PC with the harmony ultimate. I even noticed in this thread nearly all comments regarding to PC control have not been responded to.
So my questions are:
Is there a solution to use the touch screen on the remote to control the mouse cursor?
Can anyone help me connect my Harmony ultimate to my PC via bluetooth and use the Wii touch pad cursor on the remote ? (I should be able to use the 3rd party software I have found to do this, I just need the remote to connect to the PC as a Wii remote!)
Has the Ortek remote been updated on the my harmony database to enable mouse control? (See above link for the Hex codes)
Does anyone else have another way I can achieve full PC mouse control with the harmony remote??
Will it be possible to use gestures to control the mouse if I am stuck with the Ortek method?
This issue looks to be queried by many so help would be great!!
HarmonySylvain I"m looking at YOU!!
Thanks to anyone who can help in advance! If these things can be answered, I'm sure many people will benefit from it!
