    Default [Remote] Apple IR Emulator

    Hey everyone!

    I have recently been developing a kernel extension that can emulate the HID control reports that the Apple IR Controller sends to the system. I have been able to get it to work for some commands, but there are still a few bugs that I need to work out. I hope to have it done and working very soon!

    I'd rather not make a release yet as one of the bugs limits what you can actually control with it. I don't want bad copies circulating until I have something that actually does what it is supposed to do.

    Thanks goes to eveyone that has sent me AppleIRController HID information as I wouldn't have gotten so far without it (I don't have a remote)! I hope to release this to the community very soon. I will be posting the status of this project as things develop.

    Cheers,

    bholland

    This is actually a software that transform key code from your keyboard to Apple Remote, so you can control AppleTV Finder.app on Macpro and Hackintosh.

    frontrowpass.kext is just a kext that fake/simulate the presence of an Apple Remote.

    Front Row 1.3 (on Mac) is already working with keyboard without any hack.

    Front Row 2.0 (on appleTV) is "only" working with the Apple Remote, though i have found support of keyboard/mouse and tablet in the AppleTV Finder code.

    Bholland work is a "on the fly" keyboard<>Apple Remote translator/emulator.

    XianLi, could you share your findings(regarding to support of keyboard, mouse and tablet in the AppleTV Finder code)? It'll be really helpful for hackint0sh users as well! I can launch and quit AppleTV Finder (FrontRow 2.0) on my hackint0sh, and that's all, cannot control it with my keyboard and/or mouse. Could you?

    bholland, really cool news waiting for! please keep on doing your great work, thanks in advance.

    Vey much so not a dead issue! I wen't away for easter weekend so I havn't been able to work on it. Sarting Monday I will start working on it again. I think I found the bug in the play button and I did a rewrite of one of the vital parts of the driver. I will try and have it done soon. Regards,
