Please note that the 'Microsoft MCE' handler is now deprecated and will be withdrawn in MP 1.13. All MCE remotes and other eHome IR devices are now driven by our new HID handler.

I have now checked this. The "MyHarmony" online setup tool does not recognise the "Hama 00052451" as a supported device :(, but it does recognise and support the "Ortek VRC-1100" -- it calls it the "Ortek Media Player" :). I added this to my Harmony 650 (I had one unused device available in the 650), and updated my "HTPC" activity...

I'll have a look at it. I decided to make a TVS plugin, because the TVS is always running and so the remot can also be used to control another application if necessary. My rough estimation lies also in the range of 25€ (@50pcs.) - maybe 20€ could be reached, but without housing and with onboard IR receiver. So unless special features...

That Philips remote should be able to power on and off through your iMON setup if set in MCE compatibility mode. As a replacement to your iMON receiver I can recommend that Inteset PC-IRS5-01 Universal Infrared Receiver.

Yes, I think that may be the case. When I started this thread however long ago, the mapped eject button definitely worked as expected. I did notice that it had stopped working a while back with my system, but as I don't often use optical discs, I had no clue when it had stopped working. I couldn't figure out what was wrong, and I...

First, if only your RC-6 Handset is broken, but the IR-Receiver USB-Dongle is still well (showing up correctly in device manager), then get a "Universal Remote" like "Logitech Harmony" or any of the actual and most outdated "One for all" models. Even the cheapy noname ones will work, as long as they support the microsoft IR codes...

To avoid using Simerec splicer solution, since it's rather dirty and irreversible, I did some crimping to hook a proper 2.54 housing to the standby power input of that PCS-MCE. I modded an ATX cable extension to intercept the standby power and hook it to the PCS-MCE. That one should be used in the HTPC. I also modded a Molex power...

Yes, batteries Is not the the problem, I've also suspected the possibility that some other device nearby works on 433 Mhz.

Well the remote itself is definitely not modal. I can switch to mode 2, verify that the mouse moves, hold my hand over the IR emitter while "switching" to mode 1, ie pressing the blue button, and the mouse still moves.So it's the server side.
