Step 1: Get Hoekey

Step 2: Put the following in the config file:

[Media Players]
; Previous
=Msg|WMP Skin Host|793|0|786432
=Msg|Winamp v1.x|273|40044

; Play
=Msg|WMP Skin Host|793|0|917504
=Msg|Winamp v1.x|273|40045

; Pause
=Msg|WMP Skin Host|793|0|917504
=Msg|Winamp v1.x|273|40046

; Stop
=Msg|WMP Skin Host|793|0|851968
=Msg|Winamp v1.x|273|40047

; Next
=Msg|WMP Skin Host|793|0|720896
=Msg|Winamp v1.x|273|40048

; Pandora - Thumb Up

; Pandora - Thumb Down

Step 3: There is no step three 😀



  1. Thanks for this, can’t believe it actually worked. How would you control the volume in Pandora One?

    • If you find a key that does volume up and another that does volume down (I use my speaker’s control or global volume instead), you could replace the “107” and “109” in the thumb up/thumb down key codes.
