I have the same problem, but with all options in this menu.
This error seems to be affecting only the Configuration, not Mediaportal itself.

Well, the problem is that some mappings are not correct (such as go left, go right) and that I for some reason get in menus two steps for one button press. I did get the other driver and installed it (I guess, the exe doesn't give any feedback as to what it does or doesn't do), but that did not help.
The more and more I dive into MP the more and more I get the impression that those are not beta releases, but pre-alpha...even without the SVN builds. That isn't meant as critique, but as an observation. I think it will take several more months before MP is worth looking at again. Back to square one....

    Hi Ramon,

    This section of the code has been stable for months without complaints. The last time it was heavily reworked was almost a year ago. You can look through the forums. I will take a look at a new checkout of the svn and let you know if I see the problem.

    It seems to be a path relation problem. I've done a clean install of mp on a fresh windows xp installation, when this behavior appeared.

    MP handles it correct and Configuration doesn't

    I agree with vebis as so far as that MP istelf apparently doesn't generate an error message when it comes to using the remote, but even MP is somewhat far away from accurately reacting to RC commands.
    Diehard2, all I can do is report this error. It very much looks as if Configuration assumes a path that is de facto not present, so the error message isn't wrong, but the code underneath is. Unfortunately, the error message does not provide the full path, which would give some more clues. I run MP on 64 bit XP and the folder for 32 bit apps is "Program Files (x86)", which is exactly where MP installed itself. So if the installer could figure out where to put the files I am sure Configuration ought to be able to. I am not a professional developer by any means, but even I found out that just assuming paths to be present is bad practice, especially when there is a way to check for the correct path. Interestingly enough, all other files that are used are found, read, and written to correctly. Which makes this even more bizarre as I assume that the paths to MP directory is determined once and then used whenever needed.

    Hi, try svn 16446 or higher (will be out sometime tomorrow). If that doesn't work, please post your logs.

    I tried SVN 16460 and that one works fine. This is fixed!

    I can confirme that it's working now. But another minor bug has opened.

    e.g. select the medion remote, click on "Learn"
    Click on "Mapping", leaving mapping with Ok oder Cancel(no matter for the bug appearance)
    Then I have all actions twice in the Learning Window.
    This is repeatable.

    Rev16460

    Should I open a new thread for this minor bug?
