As I do from time to time, I will install MediaPortal and see what advantages and disadvantages it has over WMC.
One problem that I am currently having, which is driving me up the wall, is I cannot get all the functions on my Microsoft MCE remote to work. Previously, this has worked right out of the box, however for some reason it just isn't working.
I have installed MediaPortal 1.1.0 RC4 on my Windows 7 x64 HTPC. I use the Microsoft RC6 remote (the one in the middle of the picture of the remote config screen), and I use the IR receiver on my Antec Fusion V2 case. This calls for iMon to be running in the background for this to work.
The remote works, except it is very limited with what I can do. I'm able to navagate with the arrow keys, but keys like "back" and "more info" don't seem to work, as don't the volume, record, pause etc.
Has someone had any first-hand experience with this? I've read so many threads but nothing seems to match my situation.
