the problem is, that I wont use a mobile. I just wanna have a device 
which gives you the possibility to use a rotary controller which 
outputs a number according to the position. By pushing a button the 
number should be transfered to the receiver and processed by the pd 
thats why I am looking for a solution but the mobile remote control 
software wont work in this case I think.
