    I am trying to read Gesture Events in Samsung DTV's.
    My application is detecting one hand but not updating the cursor or x and y axes. I've read the Unity's manual for Samsung TV Input and Gesture One Hand Events have been mentioned there as mouse events. I'm trying to read them just as we read mouse events. But still, no success. Kindly assist!

    The code snippet:
    case InputMode.Gesture:
    inputRect.width = 1.0f;
    inputRect.height = 1.0f;
    inputRect.x = (Input.mousePosition.x) / Screen.width;
    inputRect.y = (Screen.height - Input.mousePosition.y) / Screen.height;
    status.Append ("x: ");
    status.Append (Input.mousePosition.x);
    status.Append ("\ny: ");
    status.Append (Input.mousePosition.y);
    status.Append ("\n");
    status.Append ("Camera Connected: ");
    status.Append (SamsungTV.gestureWorking);
    status.Append ("\nmyInt: " );
    status.Append (myInt);

    Here in this code, SamsungTV.gestureWorking is true. But x and y remain 0.

    Hey there,
    Here's some documentation:
    • SamsungTV.gestureMode can be set to one of the following:
      • SamsungTV.GestureMode.Off
        • Camera data is ignored (default)
      • SamsungTV.GestureMode.Mouse
        • One hand controls a mouse pointer. Grabbing clicks mouse 0.
      • SamsungTV.GestureMode.Joystick
        • Two hands control two joystick axes.
          • Joystick 2 Axis 2: hand 1 x axis
          • Joystick 2 Axis 3: hand 1 y axis
          • Joystick 2 Axis 4: hand 2 x axis
          • Joystick 2 Axis 5: hand 2 y axis
        • Grabbing activates the following joystick buttons:
          • Joystick 2 Button 0: hand 1 grab
          • Joystick 2 Button 1: hand 2 grab
    • SamsungTV.gestureWorking
      • Returns true if the camera currently sees at least 1 hand.
    Which gesturemode are you currently in? If you're in Joystick mode then mouse position won't return anything.

    I am using SamsungTV.GestureMode.Mouse.
    I am not using Joystick mode.
