View Full Version : WIZD w/ BLT Shortcut buttons
I have a Buffalo LinkTheater, is there a way to still use the Photo, Music and Video shortcut buttons on the remote? the screen displays INVALID when they are pressed currently.
Also is there a more approprate place to ask questions about WIZD?
Here's the offical wizd page:
Contact and comments:
But I think that the most active wizd developers are reading MPCClub forums as well.
Actually, someone else asked me about this issue with Buffalo.
The problem is that Photo, Music and Video shortcut buttons can't be used for the same thing than bufalo server.
Why ? Because in bufalo server (based on syabas myihome), there's only one music item, one photo item and one video item on the first menu.
But in wizd, you can have more than one video, music or photo item on the first page. Pressing music button will not tell wizd which folder to open.
However, you could wish to remap those buttons to different functions : setup, shuffle, etc.... In order to do that, you need to edit the skin you are using (tail.html) and look for TVID. For exemple, you can replace :
Hope this can help.
But couldn't i assign them to a certain folder or something? my layout is pretty much as the BLT software i have a music, video and photo folder and then the structure goes from there. if WIZD could assign 'quicklinks' to those buttons in the conf or something, to top level folders by number on the screen or by textual name..just an ideal..
I did have a question tho based on your post. is there a listing of the available TVID codes for the buttons on teh BLT remote?
answered my own question. here is a doc with TVID codes for Syabas systems:
haven't played with them yet but it looks to be the list, the few i've checked exist in the tail.html of wizd
I didn't see 'red' on the list thought. Is there a different list somewhere?
page up pgup
page down pgdn
Yes I've got this list for few weeks, but it is a list adapted for a special player, that's why some tvid are not in the Doc (red, green, blue....)
Just try to tweak the tail.html ....
For example, use tvid red to go to a folder :
<a href="http:///music/?" tvid="red">
("/music/" is the name of your music folder, then just replace it with real name you defined in aliases)
It should work, let's try ;)
Thanks Jib, will do this evening after work. Is there a way to extract all the TVID codes from my remote for the Buffalo Linktheater?
Not really, and there's no official tvid codes :(
Sodium gave you a list of TVID that should work on your player.
All these TVID will not work on all Syabas-based players.
You need to test !
The server tvid is accessible on the transgear and i fiddled around with it a bit
Unfortunately not much keys give succes the only ones are:
play = play
repeat = repeat
back = return
The others didn't give any succes
Is it possible to adres the 0 key or the 1 key to the functions thumbnails and options?
Just create a little php page (or whatever your poison is) to test what key you just pressed (and is translated to what TVID)
Hi, I know this is an old post but I've been trying to get my BLT shortcut buttons to work with wizd and with the help of this thread and some research I've done it, so I thought I'd join up and post the solution for anyone who needs it.
First, BLT remote buttons correspond to TVID as such...
Video = TVID "red"
Music = TVID "green"
Photo = TVID "yellow"
To get your BLT to navigate to the correct folders add the code below to your wizd skin in tail.html. If you have a start page you can also add it there. (tested working with simplicity skin, should work for others too)
<a href="?alias=movie" tvid="red">
repeat for the other buttons as required.
hope this saves someone a bit of time. I've been at it for 2 days trying to get this to work!
