OK here is a basic summary of how to do it:
- Go here: http://www.byremote.com.au/Hip/mce_remote_faq.htm
- Download and install HIP and MCE IR driver
- Open up HIP (its really confusing)
- Load the MCE profile, dig a few screens in, and change the green button from its default command. Theres an option to launch application, so I chose TheaterTek
HIP has a billion settings and I didnt understand them, but I have it working how I want. Took about 10 minutes.
So now whenever I hit the start button on the remote, theatertek launches. I set my Harmony remote to send the "GreenButton" command at the beginning of the activity... i never have to leave my couch again!!!!!!
