Tripp Lite bought this outfit a while ago, not sure how long. However, they are still selling my model, and several others... so, hopefully they'll update the software for Mac OS 10.7? It's been far from flawless these last few years (or ever really), but it's definitely been mostly usable, just many bugs in trying to get the available customizations to actually work!

Would anyone know where to find software version 2.4b4? Seems that Tripp-Lite on their web page only posts 2.2 which is way old, and wouldn't work on current operating systems.

Any hints are greatly welcome.

I've been using my DMR for a few years now and have had my fare share of use out of it: my nephew, little brothers, sister, father, mother and myself have enjoyed, at one time or another, movies, music and videos on my 16:10 20.1" using, mostly, Apple DVD Player, iTunes and VLC and have enjoyed the basic/added functionality of my system as an entertainment center—especially the DMR.

I have to give "Ease of Use" the full five stars because, even upon first configuring the mapping interface, you realize that most of the buttons are preset to be immediately used in most of the widely used audio/video end-user applications. While the same can't be said of the button assignment [process] when adding a new set for a new program, I think it goes without saying that the programs usable vary quite widely in relative design so, having said that, the interface, while seemingly unintuitive at a glance, is actually quite useful insofar as the wide range of uses for the DMR. The up side of this is that you'll rarely interface with this aspect of the software's GUI.

All-in-all; a straight-forward program/software suite(?).

I'm having issues when mapping VLC. Sent them several emails and I didn't get one reply.

Well they brought back volume control, but the driver now crashes my machine if it goes to sleep and wakes up with the Keyspan receiver plugged in. As usual, their tech support is unresponsive (does it even exist?)

Volume works for me! :)

I too have had my DMR for years and got bummed when volume didn't work with OS X. Now I can use it all the time again.

I can't seem to download this file from your website, and Safari will not log onto keyspan.com. The file name that shows up on my download manager has the suffix sitx.bin, which neither Safari or Stuffit seems to recognise.
Is Keyspan out of business?

Must be due to problems at your end, the file downloads fine here.

Well I've owned one of these since they first went on the market, what 4 years ago? A lovely little piece of hardware, and just what you need to kick back and watch a DVD on the iMac widescreen.

However, that's the hardware. The software, I have to say, is a disgrace. I can honestly say that in all these years of owning the DMR and updating the software religiously, as I do my Mac OS, I have never yet had the luxury of being able to use all of the remote's features.

THIS time around, its the VOLUME control. It doen't work in Panther. If history says anything, when Panther is superceded, the volume will be fixed but something else won't work.

Keyspan, get it together, would you? I expect this sort of nonsense from a Microsoft wireless mouse software, and my response to you is the same as to Microsoft:

IF YOU WON'T PROVIDE THE SOFTWARE TO MAKE YOUR MAC HARDWARE WORK AS IT IS DESCRIBED, THEN PUSH OFF AND STAY WITH THE PC MARKET.

When you make a piece of hardware, you are obliged to see to it that ALL its functions work, not just some of them. There seems to be this pervading attitude amongst computer hardware makers that "mostly working" = working = good enough. Pah!

with panther, the volume buttons dont change the system volume, but here is a workaround until its updated...
download and install "PTH Volume" here: http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/10228

after installing and launching it, click on the volume menu that it adds to your menu bar and press command- , to open the preferences for it.
set the hot keys for volume up and volume down. Click apply.

go to the keyspan mapper app and change the global settings for the volume keys to produce the keystroke you set in pth volume.
modify the key repeat rate until you have something that works...
