Turn off Apple IR in the OS when using HI

August 22, 2006 | 4:33 pm

Hi,

Does anyone know if it is possible to turn off the OS functions of
the Apple remote control (on a MacBook) while still being able to get
its data using hi? I would love to use it for control purposes, but
now it also turns the volume up/down etc.

Thanks,
Alexander

I just found this post and was surprised there isn’t a free solution out there, and then I found it: http://www.iamas.ac.jp/~aka/max/#aka_appleremote

Masayuki Akamatsu makes some great externals. I’ve been having a lot of fun with the remote control, ambient light sensor, and text to speech ones =)

On a related note, does anyone know if it’s possible to use HI to read the trackpad input on my macbook but prevent the trackpad from controlling the mouse cursor in the OS? I’m using a mouse anyway so I don’t need the trackpad. There’s a system preferences setting to disable the trackpad when using a mouse, but then of course HI can’t see it either.

I really like the idea of having a touch sensitive controller built into my laptop. I’m guessing a custom external could do it, but this is way beyond my realm of knowlege.

There is a Midi driver for the trackpad called FingaMidi. I haven’t
tried on Tiger yet. It will turn the trackpad into a Midi device and
turn off the mousing…

Google is your friend…

an old question of mine – does anyone know how to do the opposite? I
mean to use the trackpad as it is (= mouse) and, on a powerbook
(Tiger) have the mouse NOT seen as a mouse by the OS, but just
recognised by hi???

THIS would be great (in my opinion)

i tried to find a way, even google did not help!

best
