First of all, thank you for Boxee.
This weekend I finished the setup if my HTPC were Boxee along with Hulu Desktop, Plex, Harmony One and Remote Buddy are at the center of all the features provided.
You can have a look at my post here for a demo of what was achieved:
Because I use Boxee a lot, especially for its content, I have setup some harmony remote soft button that when pressed:
- It starts Boxee if it is not started already
- It instructs boxee to run a specific App.
For instance, pressing music on Pandora it automatically starts pandora and so on.
The Boxee Apps in a Web TV environment reminds me a lot of TV Channels in a traditional sense.
Now the Harmony One provides support for us to define a list of Channels and upload Icons to the remote. These channels are mapped to numbers that are sent by the remote to the device running Boxee.
It would be nice if we could use this to make the system even easier to use.
So two request
1) Support key-presses sequences in the Harmony Remote keymaps. For instance the ability to associate the combination "123" to some command.
2) Hopefully 1) is enough to achieve what I would like. No it may be the case that some new IR frequences need to be taken into consideration for TV channels, but I doupt it.
