Key shortcuts and remote control
« on: October 02, 2017, 05:33:22 AM »
Just waiting for registration but while testing key shortcuts if u just select 9 to go to next song nothing happens but if u select 9  -[57] thats in the menu it works fine. If u open a text document and press keyboard 9 it shows up in the text document and skips to the next song all good. I have a Remote Master remote which I have used on three other software packages  but have tried several things without success. Mapped keyboard 9 and checked in text file all good but it does nothing in E - Touch. I gather that it has something to do with the -[57] but not sure. any help would be appreciated with this or any other remote that works with E - Touch

thanks thomo

The number after the 9 is the CHR number. You can ignore that,  so 9 -[57] should be just 9.

I have tried both ways 9 will not work but  9 -[57] will from the keyboard but my remote will only send 9 as it just emulates a keyboard ? Any ideas what remotes will work ?

thanks thomo

Are you saying 9 on your keyboard works but your remote doesn't?

If I use just 9 in E Touch shortcuts to go to next song and save settings nothing happens when I hit the 9 key on the keyboard. If I select 9 -[57] mapped to the next song and save settings and hit the keyboard 9 key it works fine and selects the next song

I think I had issues like you were having before. Try this website. Hit the key your are having problems with in the test box. I think I found that some keys have different ascii numbers than you think.

Did you try that link I put in the last post?  9 on the keyboard is (57), but 9 on the number pad is (105)  They are two different keys to windows.  I screwed up on my test machine, and now can't get the options screen to open up, but I think it might correspond to lower case i.  I never got lower case letters to work right, maybe because they are mapped different.  Anyway, use that link if you can, and see what number it is sending (the CHAR code), not just what number you are typing in.  The number in () in the E-Touch program makes a difference from everything I have tested.

If you cannot gain access to your admin setup, then follow this

1) Click on start menu (windows)
2) in the search box type CMD and press enter
3) Navigate to your etouch directory
4) Type in etouch10.exe /I

This will now restore your options.

Hope this helps

The loads e-touch with the default settings so if you do this you will need to set up everything again. It is a last resort method to gain access. I wired up a button inside the juke to send a key press to access the options on mine.

Yea I tried that all keys and chr codes are correct with keyboard and remote control,
Everything works fine in 3 other jukebox programs Toulsoft, VMJ and Ultimate Jukebox
IT does not work in E touch
Does anyone use a remote control ????

If I use just 9 in E Touch shortcuts to go to next song and save settings nothing happens when I hit the 9 key on the keyboard. If I select 9 -[57] mapped to the next song and save settings and hit the keyboard 9 key it works fine and selects the next song
