Just wondering if anyone has had success creating a slider volume bar for XBMC? simple volume up and down controls are all good, sensor with the current volume also working but can't workout a slider.

Also - This probably isn't feasible with the architecture of the controller/handset etc but is it possible to launch another android app from the openremote app?

I can't get my remote even (remotely ) close to Yatse for XBMC so would like to open it up when I click on one of my activities for XBMC I've setup.



To answer your second question: unfortunately no, some Java programming skills are required. This is discussed here: Calling android apps.

If you are capable of helping, please participate in that thread.

I haven't been able to work out how to make a working volume sensor for XBMC. I too am trying to make a volume slider, and I thought this was all I was lacking. Can you share how you made the sensor and perhaps we can both work on making a working slider.

Hi Chris,

See this as well

I ended up getting a sliding volume sensor to work with XBMC so can help you out.

Are you able to send simple commands such as navigate up and down to your XBMC?
