User's Guide

Getting Started:

After running BlueTunes, choose the media player you want to control. At this point the media player will automatically load. Select the music you wish to play, and then press the 'A' button (the large round button). The music should start playing. Press the button again to pause.

Here are the default button assignments.

Changing button functions:

Any function can be programmed to any Wiimote button except the power button.

From the main screen, press the "Edit Remote" button and a picture of a Wiimote will be displayed. Point the mouse to the desired button and left-click. This will display a list of all possible controls that BlueTunes has to offer. The current control tied to the button will be highlighted in the list. Make a new choice and press accept.

Be aware that not all functions are supported by all applications. For example, you cannot display track info while using Windows Media Player. When choosing the button's control from the list of possibilities, pressing the "More Info" button will show all the supported functions for each application.

More button functions using the 'trigger' button:

All buttons on the Wiimote can actually have two functions tied to them. The second is accessed while pressing the 'B' button. Think of this button as a "shift" key.

For example, while using iTunes the "+" button skips to the next track. Now press and hold the 'B' button followed by pressing the "+" button. Notice it does not go to the next track, but instead the current track skips ahead 15 seconds.

To program these functions, press the "Edit Remote" button and mouse click on the "B" button. Notice a horizontal picture of the Wiimote. Mouse click over these buttons to change their "shift" functionality.

Motion Sensing:

BlueTunes has the ability to detect four different types of motion. These motions can be programmed to any of the functions available. All motions require the 'B' button (trigger) to be pressed while motioning. For example, press and hold the 'B' button and motion to the right to play the next track.

I tried to make the motion sensing fairly sensitive, however a fairly quick snap works best.

To change the default functions for the motions, press the "Buttons" button and mouse click on the 'B' button. Section 3 on the bottom of the screen has four buttons, one for each motion type. Press the buttons and change the function from the list of choices.

Changing the LED pattern:

The LED pattern is used as a visual indicator to show communication between the computer and the Wiimote. There are a few patterns to choose from. From the main screen, press the "Buttons" button and mouse click on the LED portion of the displayed Wiimote. Choose from the list and press accept.

Mouse controls:

There are four ways of controlling the mouse using BlueTunes. (1) Using the Wiimote buttons (2) Tilting the Wiimote (3) Using the analog joystick on the nunchuck and (4) Pointing the Wiimote at the screen.

Set any player as default:

Right click on any of the media players and chose 'Set as default'. Next time you start BlueTunes, this player will automatically be selected and start.
