I’m On a Roll – Media Keys Working

A big thing that was missing was support for media center keys. Yes, flirc shows up as a keyboard, so where was the support for your itunes/winamp controls? Play, Pause, Eject, etc.

I looked all throughout the internet, and finally found a single document that pointed out some technical information that I needed. I made some modifications to the firmware, and bam, they are up, running, and they are working great.

This is pretty big for me, it represents a milestone and achievement as this was a feature I personally desperately wanted, and knew existing and future customers would too. I will follow up tomorrow when my eyes aren’t bleeding with tears, a forum link for registered users to download and try this out. But the modifications were so slight, this will most likely be rolled out.

A quick status update on the other beta firmwares. Repeat is solid, functional, and stable. This will be rolled into the next release, in fact, I may just put it in the media key release. Wake up a suspended machine is almost there. I’m digging through the USB spec and am getting solid knowledge in order to understand why this wasn’t working.
