Multiple keystrokes using TP4 computer control

Has anyone been able to send multiple keystrokes on a VNC session on a TP4 panel?

I have been able to use the keyboard command on a button (button proerties - programming - channel - virtual keyboard) to send one keystroke to control volume etc (F11 on Media centre) but to activate Play on MCE requires sending CTR SHIFT P at the same time

Any ideas?

    There may be a more elegant way, but you could just turn on Sticky-Keys in the MCE computer.

    Thanks for that Dave. I have just tried that, but need to send the CTR SHIFT P all from a single button push of the play button on the TP, so it didn?t work. I do appreciate the help though..

    Have a look at this software
    http://www.filesland.com/companies/Zhangyan/Key-Transformation.html (it's not free though)
    you can download a trial and I have just tried it to map that Ctrl+Shift+P to a key and it works a treat...

    it's able to create keystroke sequences and then map them to a single keycode.. eg Keycode 80= LeftCtrlPress,LeftShftPress,PKeyPress,PKeyRelease,LeftShiftRelease,LeftCtrlRelease

    I haven't tried it on MCE, but I don't immediately see much trouble.

    I have used another software package in the past to do a s*itload of automation on Windows called Autoit: http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/

    This scripting language allows you to create small applications that can either be launched by a hotkey or run in the background waiting for other things to happen (eg; a dialog box with a particular title and content trips autoit to do something...)

    Cheers.

    For what it's worth I've used this software to control a MCE computer.

    It's customisable as well so you could set it up to do any keystrokes you wanted.
