Exit button on StreamZap remote now exits PVRX2
I just updated from v0.99.12 to v1.0.16. I have a StreamZap remote and their latest driver app. Previously, I would hit the exit button in GBPVR and it would act just like the escape key on my keyboard. When I updated to v1.0.16, it now exits the PVRX2 application, no matter how many menus deep I am. I am now using the v1.0.16 GBPVR app and it works fine. I have tried every combination of Hauppauge/MCE remote choices in the config app, but this makes no difference.
Unfortunately, not being able to exit from the TV Guide, which has no Menu, I can't use PVRX2. I spent a couple of hours with Girder, trying to config another button to map to the Escape key, but couldn't seem to get it to recognize PVRX2 as the current window.
have you tried "hip" instead of "girder"
I'll have to try that this weekend, but I don't see the need to introduce new software when this functionality is in the other interface and the old version. I did not see anything in the v1.0.16 change list that removes functionality from the remote control handling.
Nothing changed on this front. PVRX2.exe, like GBPVR.exe before it, can be driven entirely by the keyboard. For the most part they use exactly the same keys.

Sorry, I forgot to mention that I was previously not using Girder. Without Girder running at all, the exit button works on GBPVR, but not PVRX2. The only IR software I have is the generic Streamzap driver. If nothing changed on GBPVR's end, I'm guessing that Streamzap is recognizing the GBPVR app and sending an escape character. It may not be recognizing the new PVRX2 app. With Streamzap's limited support, this was the last thing I considered.
Thanks for confirming that there was no change on your end.
I know this is an old thread, but the solution was never documented and I have the same problem with NextPVR today in August 2012.
The Streamzap software changes context based on the name of the executable. If you change the executable name from NextPVR.exe to GBPVR.exe, you will find that the "exit" button on the Streamzap remote will properly function as the "back" button, rather than the "exit application button".
StreamZap needs to update their driver to the new executable name. If someone wants to contact them to do that, be my guest.
