please Let me understand a little bit more..Remote Buddy don't make anything about creates a virtual remote support on non native one , right??
In my fool mind it suppose work in case like "bholland irkeyboard+Remote Buddy itself" way..if I'm wrong give a small help to a poor guy like me!!!:( :( :(
EDIT: just tried RB but it doesn work for me.
In order to use Remote Buddy youīll need to have supported hardware. Then youīll need loc[a]lhostīs RemoteControl app installed. Then make Apple scrypt commands as custom action for each remote key. I donīt see any reason why it would not work. It works with Twisted Melonīs Mira, so it should work with RB as well, but supported hardware is a must.
the link to localhost's app doesnt seem to work.
can anyone share it? i need it! :)
Localhost's Remotecontrol is just a renamed bikeddude880's irkeyboardemu binay.
Remote Buddy's Apple Remote emulation here works fine on my G5 with version 15 b of remote buddy. i do not have irkeyboardemu installed. maybe that's cause the problem for you.
btw, i figure you don't need any hardware for it. you can control it by keyboard if you map hotkey remote to the buttons of virtual remote. found instructions on how to configure this on remote buddy website here:
i did what was in "use remote buddy solely as a driver", but for the hotkey remote.
have not tried on my apple tv, yet, though, but should work i guess.
Never knew about that binary, I made RemoteControl from scratch.

crazy setup idea! ;-) but mira, what for? it will just lock on virtual remote and it make unusable the virtual remote for backrow & stuff. i had look at mira, but trahsed it: configuration = super bad, functionality = super buggy, all it do is map apple remote to key presses - and even there buggy!! just look at mira forum :-(( mira cost most of all tools i seen but can do least - sad but true.
mira because i already bought it and the manta receiver, which doesnt work with remotebuddy.
Ok, strange thing just started happening after updating to 10.4.9 with 10.4.8 kernel...
Anytime that I try to click on Remote Emu in pref pane, I get the GSOD (gray screen of death), i.e. a kernel panic.
I've been scowering my console.app looking for what's going on, but I havne't been able to find anything. Can anyone...
1) Direct me to where in console I can find out what's going on?
B) Help me figure out why this is happening?
3) Let me know if you've experinced anything similar?
