Control iTunes playlists, etc. with ATI Remote Wonder
Authored by: bakalite on Apr 10, '06 01:36:21PM

I use this remote every day. The Remote Wonder II is much better than the original, and still reasonably priced. One problem is that some key presses are sent twice, so scrolling down one page can be a pain. I assigned channel down to page down in iTunes on the remote, that way scrolling down one page in the artist list can be accomplished by selecting any artist and then hitting channel down on the remote.

I also programmed the remote so that in most cases hitting a button once will produce the "milder" action while holding it for 2 seconds will produce the "heavier" action. For example, the big red button at the top will close the current window, but if you hold it down for 2 seconds will quit the current app.

You can do the same with other items, for example, the big ATI button on my remote launches Safari if pressed once, but if held down for 2 seconds it launches iTUnes. You could do similar stuff with matinee and DVD player, VLC and mPlayer, etc.

THe only problem I have is that I can't figure out how to double click on a DVD folder and have it launch with VLC. Having to drag the folder to the VLC icon is a hassle with the remote.

Control iTunes playlists, etc. with ATI Remote Wonder

Wow, I have been wanting to do this for a long time... I have the ATI Remote Wonder II. How did you go about setting it up on your mac? The cd that came with it is obviously for PC only, so... guess there is just something I'm missing. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Nevermind, I spoke before I did any actual investigation into it. I found the drivers.

In case the above link does not work - it is in the following page:
