About: Button Mapper

The Button Mapper opens the Mythnetflix firefox browser as normal but the remote is set up to learn where the buttons are. The goal is to have an easy way to tell Mythnetflix where the Netflix buttons are. You will need a mouse to navigate.

You do not have to set every button when you use this tool. If some buttons work just fine you can leave those ones alone and they will stay where set.

to make it easier print this page out and cross each button after you have programmed it.

##the programming buttons##
1 -- center button location
2 -- stop button location
3 -- play button location
4 -- hd button location
5 -- audio/closed caption button locatio
6 -- menu bar middle location
7 -- seek bar middle location
8 -- silverlight button location

to use:
To start button mapper type in a terminal:
~/mythnetflix/button-mapper/mythnetflix-map.sh

for button #8 you need to first kill silverlight by hitting the *(star) or Stop button wait a couple of seconds and move the mouse to the "Reload the page" link and hit #8 on the remote.
