I know that this topic has been done ad nauseam, however I
believe it is due to this fact that I am struggling to find accurate and definitive
information to solve my problem.
I’m running MediaPortal 1.2.0b on Windows 7 Home Premium x64
with a Microsoft RC6 remote control and receiver.
After a clean install of MediaPortal, I choose MediaPortal
Configuration, Remote, and select “Use Microsoft MCE remote or keyboard”.
By doing this, the remote will work within MediaPortal, but
some of the key buttons won’t work such as the “back” button, or any of the
play, stop etc.
To remedy this, I have found that if you again go into MediaPortal
Configuration, Remote, and select General HID tab, there is an option “Use general
HID device” and this gets more buttons going.
Annoyingly, the one button that remains not working is the “more/info”
button. Also, the “recorded TV” and “Guide” buttons which I used a lot don’t
Does anybody have a simple answer to this question that has
been plaguing me? I will upload logs and a photo of my remote and receiver shortly.
