    I love controlling my MorphOS systems via Synergy from my other machines. ( less keyboard / mouse clutter )

    I'm currently doing it via my MacPro 5.1 using an Apple bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Everything works swimmingly except for the media keys.

    It would be great if there is a possibility to control things like volume up and down via media keys on Synergy.

    Thanks

    Did you bind those keys to anything on the MorphOS side?

    Not that I can see.

    If I try for example to try and bind volume up in iControl to some random setting, it just puts a / there.

    Same for Volume down, mute, next, play etc. All of them just gives /

    I don't think media keys can be used in IControl, and I don't remember if they are accepted anywhere in the default MorphOS installation... but they don't give / either...

    I use MMKeyboard to assign actions on those keys, maybe try that if you still get those / characters or do they work actually.

    I've also made a script that can be useful with those media keys: MultiMeedio :)

    Thanks jPV, I'll give it a spin.

    Strangely enough, when using my Apple Wired Keyboard (1944) the volume up and down media keys do work, so the OS does support it.

    Ok, I installed MMKeyboard.

    With the USB keyboard installed it picks up the volume up ( as example ) correctly, but via Synergy, it just shows /
