Actually, If you look at most ipod remotes over at ebay, some of them have
menu, scroll, and enter buttons, in addition to
the play/pause, volume+-, and next/prev buttons (and others too).
Here's a remote that has separate navigation buttons too:
Mine has only 5 buttons, but I just found out that it has a playback,
and a navigation mode, and I can switch to navigation mode
by holding down the right, and volumedown buttons at the same time for
(this is mine: http://www.buyijet.com/top-products/ijet-nav-black-with-square-remote.html)
And the original ipod firmware works as expected: In playback mode
I can only control the music playback, even if some other menu is open.
If I switch to navigation mode, then i'm controlling the currently shown menu.
Rockbox seems to completely ignore the navigation mode.
I'm guessing my remote is probably using the last 4 codes from this list:
But I haven't checked yet.
I think rockbox should work just like the original firmware in this respect,
and that means fixing the navigation mode (or navigation keys for
and forcing the playback control keys to only control playback and nothing else.
How many buttons do the iriver remotes have?
Could they benefit from a configuration option that allows the user
to force playback controls only for the remote?
