RMD napsyeK

Basic OS X (10.3.x or better) terminal utility to read Keyspan DMR IR codes directly from the Keyspan DMR receiver. This is useful for creating your very own REM files so you can use your favorite remote.

To operate correctly, the KeyspanDMR Mapper must be off after having been run at least once since the last machine start up (run the KeyspanDMR application, click Start Mapper. Mapper status should show 'RUNNING'. Click Stop Mapper. Mapper status should show 'NOT RUNNING').

Running RMD napsyeK will open a terminal window and start communication with the Keyspan receiver. When you press buttons on your favorite remote, RMD napsyeK will display the IR codes as detected by the receiver, in the Keyspan REM file format. To quit RMD napsyeK, press Ctrl-C (and possibly press a button on your remote to remind it to quit).

RMD napsyeK also supports command line options for the USB vendor ID, USB product ID and IR bit time. To play with this you must drop to the terminal. To view the options invoke napsyek with -h.

The Keyspan DMR system is flexible enough to support many remotes. At the same time, there are probably just as many remotes it cannot support! If yours doesn't work, it's not my fault, or Keyspan's for that matter. You need to find a new favorite remote.
