Further to the above please note that in MP 1.12 the InputDeviceMappings folder path is now:- C:\Program Files (x86)\Team MediaPortal\MediaPortal\defaults\InputDeviceMappings\ Placing the modified mapping file here (overwriting the original version) rather than in a new folder in ProgramData........ works fine and should avoid any...

Hi, I had an issue with my firefly X10 remote and replaced the remoteplugins.dll with the one found in this thread. It fixed the remote issue but it seems it has broken the netflix site for onlinevideos. It tries to load the dll and fails with a reference to MP 1.11. I don't know if it is a reference in the remoteplugins dll or a...

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...

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...

Yes, I think that may be the case. When I started this thread however long ago, the mapped eject button definitely worked as expected.

Here's my 2 cents.. This remote use the same button for turning off a program (alt + f4) as for going into standby. Short press for close, long for standby. I never managed to get my computer to resume with the remote if standby was triggered by a timer, only when standby had been triggered by the remote. The green button will send...

AW: Re: Logitech Harmony 300/300i You are right. The device you have to configure in the software of Logitech Harmony is: Computer/Media Center PC -> Microsoft -> Windows Media Center.

Not sure if this is still relevant, but I have just got some of these receivers. The big issue I had was the amount of power they require. 500ma. Make sure you have no other devices sharing the power with it, or hang it off a powered hub if needs be. I used the MCE replacement drivers (that are now marked as obsolete) and it works...

this is the way to go when you use analogue output... when you use SPDIF (and AC3/DTS), cannot be done peterfup, if you want to connect your big speakers directly to a computer, you will still need a pre-amp, that can drive your speakers (same Ohm and not crazy Watt difference)... maybe I misunderstood you?
