How to skip forward/backward or skip ads in MythTV from orbiter?
« on: September 19, 2008, 05:16:29 pm »
Hello,

I read from several people in the forums that they only use an orbiter to control their TV (don't use a remote) and find it very comfortable. While I agree agree in part (I use a Fujitsu C500 tablet with 8'' screen) I have the following problem:
I do not seem to find any buttons on the Orbiter while watching MythTV to skip forward or backward, like right and left arrow on the keyboard (different from fast forwarding) nor to skip commercials (A and Z buttons on the keyboard).
The reason I need this is because commflaging doesn't always detect commercials, so I sometimes have to skip commercials manually (and cannot have Myth in auto skip commercials mode).

Does anyone have a suggestion for this, besides keeping a keyboard near my living room sofa (which is what I do now)?
I know that there will be changes to the MythTV Orbiter interface in 0810, are these buttons going to be added by any chance?

Thanks.

Jean

I want to do a number of changes to allow for these features, but nothing has been done for it, yet.

Thom,

thanks, at least I know now that I didn't miss something. I guess I'll keep my keyboard handy for now...
